Horoscope for the Week: June 25, 2021
Tip of the Week:
Summer has finally, officially begun. Its first gift is the fact that Mercury in Gemini has also turned direct after 3-weeks of retrograde motion. Because Mercury was in its own ruling sign, it may not have proven to be as difficult as usual, yet it probably still produced real reversals and turnarounds for some, for better or worse.
Now, we are in what is called the 3-week ‘shadow period’ which is the time period during which time Mercury retraces the ‘degrees’ it went over while retrograde. What this also indicates is that those degrees were ‘transited’ by Mercury three times: first while direct, second by retrograde, and third when by direct motion again. This is always true of the planet-retrograde-process and can be understood as a triple stitching of key themes of destiny.
So, the Sun in Cancer marking Summer Solstice as of June 20 and Jupiter in Pisces turned Retrograde the same day, Mercury Direct as of June 22, Neptune Retrograde on June 25 and Venus enters Leo on June 26.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Now that summer is officially here, balancing your time between work, home, family and fun in the sun has also returned. Despite the ongoing plight of the human condition, you are determined to weave in some playtime. Some final touches of the finer details may continue but they too will yield to quality time shared and this trend will continue for a while.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
While others are reaching out, you may find yourself digging in. Taking projects to a deeper level is implied. These may reach to your living environment, yet may also be focused on your most intimate locale – your body, mind, heart and soul. Self-awareness and positive self-regard are the preliminaries. Beyond that, bonding with family and friends has become a priority.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
The new perspectives stimulated by the recent eclipse have now passed their germination phase and are beginning to take root. If you have not opened your mind to consider new interpretations, you may find yourself feeling moody, pouty, and perhaps impatient with others whose views differ from yours. This is your invitation to re-imagine what you deem to be true.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
As though a bright light has been switched on in the basement of your mind, synchronistic events are serving to awaken you. Whether you are happy or not with what you are now exposed to is another matter. It is up to you whether you choose to turn the lights back off and ignore what was revealed. Of course, the consequences of denial and evasion will also be yours with which to contend.
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 recent activation to your career and/or public life should be evident by now. Positively, you are responding consciously and deliberately. If you find yourself feeling stressed or guilty due to procrastination and not listening to your intuitions or missing the outer signs of synchronicity, this is your cue to wake-up! Sober, strategic, disciplined action is probably required.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Mercury now direct, may feel like you have emerged out of something of a foggy spell. At best, perhaps you went on something of a soul-searching journey and have emerged with a new quality of clarity and understanding. The host of planetary shifts is likely serving to bring you back to reality now. The cycles activated could prove advantageous in your career life.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Planets in Gemini have the effect of triggering some form of transformation for you. This has been the case over the past several weeks and continues for another few. These processes tend to swing between practical and spiritual considerations. The two meet when our choices and actions align with our destiny and produce meaningful contributions.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Activations in your relationship life continue to evolve and will now shift to a deeper level of change and transformation. Specifically, these reveal a subtle process of tuning-in to inner guidance. Logic guided by wisdom is your basic soul path. The shift does include an inspirational ignition thanks to Venus and Mars in Leo.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
A whole new round and level of critical thinking has been activated. It is causing you to discern and differentiate between what you perceive to be reality and fantasy, or fact and imagination. Realism is your guiding light yet deciphering what it is and constitutes in terms of actual choices is part of the plot. Meanwhile, your passions and ambitions are rising.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
The creative inspirations seeded by the Gemini Solar Eclipse have now shifted to the nitty-gritty work required to make them manifest. This implies the need to get your imagination working for you as opposed to dwelling in it. The Leo influence will activate your relationship life and probably for the better, yet you will require a bit more freedom too.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
A creative cycle has begun. Yet, it is one that requires more effort than idle fun. It comes on the heels of the eclipse that likely produced shifts close to home. These may have the effect of altering your priorities. Now, the focus is on responding to these activations, which will require a sporting approach, as in, ‘the game is afoot’.
