For All Signs Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, turns direct on June 9, 2017 after a four month period of retrogradation. He is known as Zeus to the ancients, father figure to the others, and his better side symbolizes human expansiveness and spiritual wisdom. His negative qualities are ostentation, pomposity and expansion without discipline or roots. During his retrograde periods promises and expectations are often too optimistic and fall short of the mark. When he is direct, as he will be through next February, projected hopes are more likely to come to fruition. He continues in the sign of Libra now and will shift into Scorpio on October 10, 2016. Those of whatever sign he is in are given a boost of faith and usually better fortune.
Aries This is a time in which your partner is on your side and things are flowing well between you. It is a good period for coming to agreement on circumstances that have been issues in the past. You may be especially enjoying music or the arts together. Intimacy brings you closer together now.
Taurus Venus entered your sign yesterday and will travel "with you" through July 4, 2017. The subject of relationship will be very important as you move forward through this time. If you have issues with a partner, this is the time to lay them out on the table so the two of you can look at how better to deal with them. Negotiate but do not accuse or bring in secondary issues.
Gemini the Twins (May 20 -- June 21) Mercury, your planetary ruler, entered your sign yesterday. Mercury travels rapidly through Gemini between June 6 and June 21, 2017. During this time there likely will be greater emphasis on communications, errands, and other short distance travels. Your mind will be quick and your attitude persuasive.
Cancer Mars, the warrior, entered your sign on June 3, 2017 and will be traveling with you for seven weeks. This energy is especially helpful in defining our boundaries. Periodically we need to examine who we are as well as who we are not. Often something is eliminated. In general, it increases your courage and physical strength.
Leo This is a time of focus on your health and the routine maintenance of life's routines. (Yawn) Fire signs rarely want to handle details in any form. However, the message is clearly there. You must attend to these areas or eventually pay a price for not doing so.
Virgo Your attention turns toward your life direction now. For many this is reflected by the career path. You may be researching needed information or talking with others about where you are headed. Your work is noticed and you may be the recipient of compliments and support by the end of this week.
Libra Venus, your ruling planet, enters the eighth sector and will remain there until July 4, 2017. This suggests favorable influences and opportunities related to debt payments, gifts, or other financial resources that come through other people. It includes investments, debts owed to you, and insurance payoffs. Relationships take on a more intense role.
Scorpio Mars, one of your ruling planets, enters your ninth house for 7 weeks. You will notice a shift into a new direction. It will likely be related to contacting people at a distance, preparing to travel, seeking professional advice, or focused on education. This position of Mars leans us toward a heavy accelerator foot. Attend to driving within the speed limit.
Sagittarius Give special attention to the lead paragraph because Jupiter is your planetary ruler. Now that it is turning direct in your partnership house, making decisions concerning relationships will be much easier. The next few months may bring a beneficial business partnership, more clientele, or a marriage.
Capricorn You occasionally confuse what you think with who you are. There are those who will disagree with you this week. Just don't let it become a battle to the death. Your identity is not at stake in this situation. You may not like what is happening, but you can choose a better time later to argue the point.
Aquarius This is a week in which you will tend to be thinking obsessively. It is an opportunity to learn how to better control your mind. Shift your attention to something less dramatic, such as whatever is happening this moment, rather than worrying over what might happen in the future.
Pisces You may feel as though you came from another planet this week. Communications may be misunderstood, snarled, or lost altogether. Compensate for this problem by concentrating on speaking the truth as you know it, and listening very carefully to what the other tells you. Then reflect what you heard, just to be sure.
