Horoscope for the Week:  June 18, 2021

Tip of the Week:

Last week’s Solar Eclipse comes to its First Quarter phase, or half moon, this week.  By now, the impact of it should be evident, but sometimes there is a delay and it comes to objective clarity at the Full Moon, and/or it manifests as a series of synchronistic events, again coming to fuller awareness within the first two weeks. Without the astrological knowledge of what these synchronicities imply, it is common for people to chalk them up to coincidences subject to the circumstantial flow of outer events and, thereby, miss out on understanding the deeper synchronicities implied. In other words, the ego-mind relegates the events according to lower-minded perspectives.

The higher mind awareness reveals clarity regarding our destiny and offers valuable insights to understanding the synchronicities of life as opportunities for evolutionary growth of the soul.  In short, we can either live in the lower mind of random circumstances as we tend to our ego-centric perspectives, or we can awaken to live life consciously and with vision in accordance with the purpose of our incarnation. This is the wisdom that astrology can provide.


Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

As Summer Solstice fast approaches, you find yourself focused on completing projects started earlier in the season to make room for some fun in the sun. Yet, creating a beautiful home is a feature of your desire to contribute to a happy family life, so you are willing to make the extra effort. In the background, you are beginning to see things more clearly and precisely.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

A busy time continues. Multi-tasking may seem to be the new norm for you. Yet, in as much as you deem your efforts to be creative, you are happy. Where others are completing renovations projects,   you may be just getting started or are launching new projects. Positively, your focus has been strong, yet focus to be aware not to lapse into inflexibility, especially now when versatility is the key.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Many new perspectives have been activated by last week’s Solar Eclipse. It indicates an invitation to think critically at a whole new level of depth.  At least, this was its potential, but it does depend on your willingness to be receptive to see and interpret yourself and reality differently. A rebellious impulse is either pushing you to greater defense or to question popular opinions.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

Some measure of retreat or turning inward to meditate and contemplate more deeply upon what is true and what you have come to believe will be activated by this eclipse. The compelling fact is that just because you believe something it does not mean it is true. Courage and resolve is required to see truly and denying it won’t help much either, at least not in any genuinely spiritual sense.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

A boost to your sense of originality and/or individuality is now underway.  With Mercury retrograde, it could lead you to wishful thinking or over idealistic interpretations regarding others. Therefore, avoid assumptions and listen more as you communicate. Consider that objective reality is the illusion that we partake in since we all experience it subjectively.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

The influence of this eclipse is slated to continue until the next eclipse season in six months. So, during this time and starting now, you will experience activation in your public life and professional arena. Mars in Cancer at the time of the eclipse will push you to a rebellious and/or revolutionary assertion, and now in Leo, requires courage.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

The air element factor of this eclipse aligns well with your air sign nature. However, Mercury is destined to play a role at this time of leaving you feeling a little lost and confused. This is a temporary factor, but it could last a while, months even, yet with increasingly less potency. Other factors point to a drive to get to the bottom of things, yet may require new tools and guidance.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You have entered a complex cycle. It was anchored with the eclipse, and will linger for a while, as long as several months in extreme instances. However, other more favorable cycles are serving to soften some of the edge. Positively, these impulses can be harnessed to increase your power and influence in the world. Free your mind and the rest will follow.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Fresh starts in your relationship life have been activated. The pursuit of new kinds of knowledge is featured. You will have to discipline your focus to achieve this successful piece. With your confidence levels rising, this is probably a good time to start. Your energy levels and with heightened ambitions, combined, makes this a good time to reach for your dreams.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Many new thoughts regarding what you deem true and important are running through your mind. At worst, you feel overwhelmed with information and scattered in your perspectives and focus. Positively, your powers of critical analysis are stronger than usual, yet so too is your susceptibility to be influenced.  So, you may want to direct your vigilance to what you are learning and the reliability of the source.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

You have entered a creative cycle. Yet, Mercury retrograde is contributing layers of complexity blocking you from interpreting reality as clearly as you might believe. This influence will be alleviated over the coming weeks, albeit possibly slowly. Circumstances may be requiring you to give more, yet you may feel reluctant to do so. In fact, you are more inclined to rebel and even fight than to idly yield.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)

Changes close to home in close time proximity to this Solar Eclipse, perhaps a bit prior or perhaps coming to full consciousness soon, is a central theme now. It probably has already activated a strong resolve to make some measurable changes to your usual approach. This trend will continue throughout the summer season so tune-in to get a lot done.
