Cancer The Crab (June 20-July 21)
Your peace is disturbed by lurking fears. Instead of avoiding the problems, you could look directly into Fear's eyes and determine precisely what it is about. Do whatever seems right to diminish the potential trouble and then let it go, knowing you have done the best you can.
For All Signs: We have been on a white water rafting trip since 2008. Our boat is named, "World Economy." During the years through 2011, this trip, which began with a bang, has journeyed through mild to mid-level rapids. Now we are entering a rush of water that will eventually become a torrent. On June 20, we arrived at the first of the mile markers. The next is at the beginning of the 4th quarter, 2012. Quarters 1, 2, and 4, of 2013 threaten to roll the boat. Quarter 2 of 2014 leads us immutably into unwieldy white water, where we must steer through major obstacles at breakneck speed. In the last quarter of 2014 we discover an unexpected waterfall. If you knew you were boarding this Economy boat, what gear would you want to have in your possession? Think carefully. Sharp turns ahead. No bailouts for the average Joe. Secure your tools now, while we are still just waist-deep. Then enjoy the excitement of the ride.
Aries: Your partner may be uncharacteristically assertive and not so likely to back down from a fight. Life will be generally more harmonious if you stay off the hot topics. If it is important to tackle them, seek a counselor, a trusted friend, or a negotiator to keep things fair.
Taurus: You are drawn to all things beautiful and sorely tempted to buy the wonderful items you see, especially for your home. Leave your credit cards at home and wait a couple of days before making a big purchase. Discussions with your partner about the relationship should go well.
Gemini: Love and social life are high on your priority list now. Short trips, errands and education, whether it involves teaching or learning, are all on the A-list. You have a need to communicate the ideas that rush through your mind.
Leo: Any activity that involves travel, legal affairs, publishing, education or church functions get a "thumb's up." You are loaded with ideas, so remember to give others the option to speak also, if you want to be heard.
Virgo: You hold a privileged position during this period. You are an "advisor" to the authority in charge and your intuition is on-target. Therefore, benefit from your own advice. "Tune in" with meditation, art, music, or connecting to the spirit of your understanding.
Libra: Mars, the warrior, enters your sign this week 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 and are not.
Scorpio: Over the next six weeks life will work more smoothly if you let yourself be led by the "signs," circumstances and people around you. It is not a time to attack or initiate new ideas, but to respond to what comes your way.
Sagittarius: The shift of Jupiter (your ruling planet) to Gemini last month has brought you face-to-face with past relationships. You may be dealing with a homecoming friend, or acting out an outdated pattern from the past.
Capricorn: You will soon be beyond a dilemma that has caused you blockage. It may have to do with an issue of debt, investments or a loan. It's quiet in your life for the moment. Take advantage of the restful time now because next week you'll begin a new set of goals.
Aquarius: This is a fine time to enjoy lovers, children or partners. Communication flows freely, whether verbal or written. You are of a particularly creative mind at this time.
Pisces: Be gentle with yourself this week. You are on an emotional or physical low. Both your body and your feelings are hypersensitive. Step aside from stressful situations if at all possible and don't become embroiled in the trouble of others. Fortunately, it will not last long.
