Those celebrating a birthday this week must contend with the energy of both Gemini and Cancer. These are two totally different types of people.
While the Gemini can see humor in almost anything, Cancer will often see challenge. Gemini tends toward detachment and freedom and Cancer leans on emotion and extreme sensitivity.
Anyone born this week is involved with family in a detached, loving way. They are trying to combine their deep need for freedom with their real need for family. So communication is high on their personality trait list.
This can be an awesome journey for some, but to the Gemini born from June 14 to 21, they are learning how to live the good life by talking about it.
People born this week: Steffi Graf, June 14, 1969; Neil Patrick Harris, June 15, 1973; Phil Mickelson, June 16, 1970; Venus Williams, June 17, 1980; Paul McCartney, June 18, 1942; Paula Abdul, June 19, 1962; Nicole Kidman, June 20, 1967; and Meredith Baxter, June 21, 1947.
The new moon on Saturday sets us up for a good week to start new projects. Best day to start would be on Thursday, June 13. The moon will be making great aspects both to the sun and Uranus. Now that makes for a good vibration from the heavens. So take advantage of the opportunity and sign your contracts or buy a car. That way you will beat the Mercury retrograde on June 26.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) If you were able to stay free from any complicated promises last week, you are getting closer to becoming liberated. You are taking control of what you do and think now. This attitude will offer you a wide selection for a new BFF. So go for the excitement of keeping yourself on the right path.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) This is a good time to avoid impulsive purchases. Just remember, if you don’t have the cash then you don’t need the bargain. A new venture could pay off extremely well but enter it gently and do it alone. Having partners in your latest passion could cost you a valued friendship.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Making a big move soon could be just what you need to force you into a new adventure. Just start before Mercury goes retrograde on June 26 or wait three weeks. Also, Jupiter remains in Gemini until the end of the month. With both Mars and Jupiter you really can’t miss being a success.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Your sensitive nature is being tormented by both Uranus and Pluto. Face the need to make a change in attitude and try to smile more. This is a time to avoid moods and to hang with cheerful people. No negative thinking this week and watch for a new and charming BFF.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) You should be finding the payoff of your past efforts lining up before you soon. Do as much good work as you can and then look for the return in just a matter of days. No good works, then you know what to expect. An old friend is hoping to connect with you soon. So keep smiling.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) It is a good idea to remain in control of your immediate surroundings and leave those who cause you trouble outside. After all, you are ready to explode with all that is on your plate. It does not make sense to invite more nonsense into your life. Keep busy and watch for more money.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) The erratic nature of Uranus opposite your Sun can cause a certain amount of upheaval in your life. And because of this influence you could decide to make some changes that won’t last long. So move slowly and make sure this is what you want to do. Otherwise you will be repairing damage.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) With Saturn in Scorpio you are faced with a responsibility you may have been putting off. So it is good you are now taking care of what must be done. A friend will be extremely helpful during this time. So let them join you in your latest project. Make sure you trust their work.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) With Mars now opposite your sun you can be sure you will be looking for an argument. With this in mind watch out since it is a new moon on Saturday. This means others could also be looking for a fight and will find you. Spend your time more productively if you are able.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Your attitude towards both your work and personal life is turning upside down. This is good and will bring you into a new adventure with power. A new relationship could enter your life when you are able to make some time. Look for a new financial arrangement to enter your life.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) If you are contemplating a change in direction, that is good. But don’t rush because you are liable to change your mind. The best bet is to stay still until mid-July. If you still feel the same way then take action. If you follow that rule you won’t regret it. So be smart and slow down.
Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) There may be minor confusion due to Neptune in Pisces. So it would be smart to hold off on any moves until you at least count to 10. A surprise message could bring a minor challenge into your life. It is possible it could be a long-ago pal who would like to renew a friendship.
