Although it has characterised the past seven years, the transit of Uranus through your region of the sky, remains a primary influence. Cast your mind back to the beginning of this decade and consider how those eventualities you’d have thought were the most unlikely to materialise, have instead become a routine element of your everyday. This is the trouble with Uranus and its role as planet of the unexpected. Once you anticipate an event, it no longer qualifies as so surprising. Still, during the latter stages of June, you’ll appreciate personal development is more important, than living up to other’s standards and expectations.

Venus in your sign for nearly a month is wonderful news, as it is traditionally your planet. Although it is actually a ferocious and hostile place, with dense clouds of sulphuric acid and a mean surface temperature of 462°C; its brightness at night second only to the Moon has long been considered a fortunate omen. Venus suggests security, comfort, luxury, plenty, improving relationships and financial gain. As if this were not enough, this planet is a moderate influence that tempts and encourages you to take advantage of its auspices, rather than pushing anything you couldn’t handle your way. So, create the time to spoil yourself!

The Sun in your sign for the first three weeks of June is joined by Mercury your ruler from June 6. You have an active and busy period ahead, but one that you will enjoy enormously. You love variety and there is plenty in the stars, along with the opportunity for expressing yourself, both socially and creatively. The community in which you live is highlighted and you could find yourself kept on the go, by neighbourhood affairs and the concerns of your friends. Romantically, you are drawn to somebody from a significantly different age group. You’ll learn a lot from this association, since it has proven committed and dependable.

Midsummer in the temperate regions of the northern hemisphere meets midwinter in southerly latitudes. Modern astrology has its origins in the clear skies of the Middle East and the Mediterranean, thus focussing on the seasonal variations of the Earth’s top half, to the dismay of the slightly over one in ten, living on its southern side. But the same interpretation applies and this month, you find yourself more in the spotlight than you have been lately, especially from June 21. Both the Sun and Mercury reach your sign the same day, before bringing to a climax matters that have simmered since March concerning your aims and goals.

Venus in the uppermost sector of your horoscope helps matters connected with your ambitions and objectives reach a successful and rewarding finale. For many, there is an emphasis on your professional and career affairs, while for others your aims are equally tangible, but share an increasingly vocational slant. You will gain most from this situation by networking, advertising and spreading the word about what you’re trying to achieve. Although you love the glory and are sure you possess unique talents and skills, there are times when life turns out both happier and more productive, with a little help from your friends…

Jupiter continues through your money sector, implying good news for your finances. The planet of plenty helps with earned income; so if you were thinking about a better paid position or even a sideways shift that allows you to express yourself more fully, this is certainly the moment for giving matters your fullest consideration. You can coast along without causing yourself many problems, or you can take the whole issue in hand and act purposefully, which ultimately works better for you. It is certain that whether paid or voluntary, you’d like whatever you spend your time on, to have meaning beyond mere monetary reward.

september 23 - october 22
Jupiter through your sign suggests a period of roughly one year, when all the good fortune associated with this planet, concentrates on your part of the sky. Look out for, seize and wherever you can create, opportunities for yourself that broaden the range of your experience through travel, education and meeting new people in different situations. But take care, as Jupiter receives a couple of stress aspects during June. The downside of this planet is never that dreadful, but it may exaggerate unproductive habits. Watch out for waste, extravagance, overindulgence and overdoing things; or overlooking the finer details.

Funds look a little limited; so ensuring your financial resources are streamlined and organised, proves an arduous task. The chances of some time away from this look slim, but a change of scenery is strongly recommended to give you a different perspective on your priorities. You don’t have to travel alone either, since some genial company helps everything feel more fun. If you choose the solitary option maybe with the idea, of heading for the hills to get your thoughts together, don’t be surprised if your plans alter in the light of who you meet and what happens. It is possible, to encounter some fascinating folk along the way…

november 22 - december 21
Your confidence has been hit hard and hovers around what looks like the bottom of the curve. Probably the extended nature of the obstacles you’ve faced only exacerbates this impression, leading you to feel gloomier than your situation warrants. But hardship brings out the best in folk, even if this means the last set of circumstances you’d have chosen. When you have nothing left to lose, you are ready to take bigger risks: an idea that appeals hugely and cheers you up no end. Honesty and straightforwardness are among your biggest assets and draw people to your corner, just when you’d started to believe hoping was in vain.

Pluto in your sign becomes embroiled in another complicated alignment that potentially means positive consequences, once you’ve worked your way through. Astrologers belonging to some ancient traditions, or of a Western persuasion a century or more ago might talk about crisis and difficulty. These days we’d still acknowledge the stressful element, but describe such configurations as dynamic: meaning they contain the seeds of their own resolution and have the potential for constructive change. Relationship issues, need to be answered on an emotional level. It is curious how when life is easy, folk don’t achieve all they might.

january 20 - february 18
Most likely this won’t be the easiest month, since four planets at the new moon, all highlight your routines and growing health concerns, throughout most of this period and especially its latter stages. Remember, if there is one thing that undermines and impedes your progress, it is an unexpected illness or just a period of infirmity. When you’re well, it is hard to imagine that any set of circumstances might undermine your coping strategy. But if you’re sick you cannot think about much beyond, getting through the current day facing the same old issues. Health concerns therefore, should take prominence while you have the option…

An interesting celestial dynamic around the middle of this month, links Neptune in your sign to Venus, the planet of love. This bodes well for close relationships and suggests where there has been discord, sitting down together to talk things through helps to clear the air. However, any passionate and high maintenance attractions need to use the energy between you consciously and productively, if a happy equilibrium is ever to be maintained. Otherwise, your interchange degenerates into rows and arguments. Even in a friendship or within a family link, keeping active and engaged together is your best guarantee of harmony.
