Horoscope for the Week: June 14, 2013
Tip of the Week:
This last week of Gemini is the handoff to solstice and the turn of the season. Here in the Northern Hemisphere the season of summer is about to begin while in the Southern it is winter that looms nigh. So, which is it, summer or winter? Why… it is both, no lie. This is one of the many dualities of existence which seem contradictory yet paradoxically both are true. This is a characteristic reflection of Gemini, the sign of variety and spice, of naughty and nice where the word ‘and’ buries ‘or’ forevermore. The question of nature or nurture is a good example because the better choice of words is ‘and’ replacing ‘or’. Yes, the answer is both: nature and nurture. How could it be otherwise? The notion of nature is of course derived from ancient psychology which is better known as Astrology. And since astrology is natural psychology, how can it go out of style? Yes, like nature it is timeless and pervasive. After all, what aspect of existence has no nature in it? Answer: None. Even the most artificial features of modern civilization, and there is a fair share, contains, is derived from and/or is processed by forces of nature. Earth (matter) Air, (gases) Fire (friction, ignition) and Water (liquids) are the basis of life. Regarding Gemini, the twins, it or shall I say they, symbolize(s) dualities of all sorts, or is that polarities, and such examples as the two sides of the body including the two hemispheres of the brain and right down to neutrons and electrons illustrate this archetype. Not surprisingly, Gemini is also symbolic, at its deeper reaches, of the duality of perception itself. This gives rise to all sorts of riddles and tricks of the mind. Are you dizzy yet? Say hello and goodbye to Gemini! Happy Solstice, summer, winter… however it is for you. (P.S. Solstice this year occurs on June 20, 10:40 pm PDT)
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
There is reason to say something new and wonderful is stirring in your life. A very fruitful energy pattern is portrayed in the planetary line-up. It is all a part of a much deeper theme of change. How you respond to it is an important factor. It does indicate change, even of the revolutionary sort. With awareness it could produce a bounty of beauty.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)
The time has come to diversify your interests and focus. This includes stimulating new potential streams of income and/or accessing untapped talents and resources. At least all your creative wheels and juices will be turning and flowing. Yet risk and commitment are required. It is important that you assert, push and dig to uncover fresh creative reserves.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Last week’s New Moon seed in your sign will be bearing flowers now. And these are the kind that bears fruit, not simply a pretty bloom. Still, you must tend to your garden with deliberate focus; the tendency to scatter it is strong these days. Yet, the time is right to expand and to increase your creative interests and earning potential.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You are in a cycle that calls for inner work. Confronting and clearing doubt demons, accessing deeper reserves of faith and building upon your core strength of character, are examples. Our ego tends to be wilful and impatient and of itself does not understand the deeper realities of consciousness and evolutionary cycles that are ever operative. Appreciating these constitutes another example of this inner work.
Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 23)
An active outreach to increase the scope and quality of your network is the message in the stars now. This includes learning and innovation linked to original ideas and concepts. For the sake of future progress and success it is important that you enter into new negotiations and that you establish fresh and healthy diplomatic dialogue.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Much activation in your professional and/or public life were seeded by the New Moon in Gemini last week. The two main keys requiring your implementation now are your willingness to take new leads and to do the work to learn new skills and strategies. These will have a transformational effect on you. You will not be the person you were, you will be better!
Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)
You may feel pregnant with new perceptions, beliefs and philosophies altogether. The actual birth of these may require a couple more weeks at most. These may be directly related to money and other resources, yours and those of others. At a deeper level, deciphering what these are truly worth to you is a question you must answer, soon.
Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)
A variety of lingering questions regarding choices and actions to take have come down to the final crunch. Circumstances will push you to decide, this week! Perhaps it is short-term gain or advantage versus long-term investments that require deliberate discernment. Perhaps you can strike a deal that allows you to have a bit of both. You decide!
Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)
Death and rebirth are like alpha and omega, while they seem poles apart they are actually the closest of neighbors. One day ends only for a new one to begin that very moment. This is true of every aspect of life. In the wider sense, endings in your overall lifestyle are the sign of new beginnings. It could be the routine, the rhythm or the pace or D, all of the above.
Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)
The returns of previous actions, choices and investments are steadily rolling in. These are highlighting the quality of prior activity. Since the point of power is ever in the present moment, whatever the results and consequences of yesteryear you have the opportunity to make new and perhaps better choices now. Focus on improvement.
Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)
How much fun can you have? Creative activity is just as likely as play, and it can be work…. At a deeper level yet, a deliberate dissolving of your previous status quo, which is still lingering, requiring the activation of news modes of self-expression, is the game plan. In turn, this requires fresh perspectives, especially how you perceive and define yourself.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
A good deal of shifting and shaking and sifting and sorting is underway close to home. Focusing on your talents is emphasized. To this end you must clear the way. But it is not solely cleaning and organizing your living space that it is required, you are undergoing a metamorphosis. This requires faith and patience. The good news is until now you have crawled but soon you will fly!
