Week of: June 10 - 16
"Draw your neck out of you collar."
In Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (I.i.4)
Aries: Many people cringe where they hear the word "karma" as if there is always something bad that's going to happen. In FGS terminology, karma refers to past lives with ex-wives and other sundry affairs which need to be cleaned up. Then there are also the rewards of hard work. You get to reap what you have sown, or, in more common language, think nice things and good things happen. what's that New Orlean's expression, the French one?
Taurus: The last of the dynamic duo heads out of your sign, and this leaves you feeling a little peckish. In fact, this would be good time to cozy up to a nice, neat Virgo for some action. That doesn't necessarily imply romance, but a partnership of some kind is in the wind, with a Virgo, later this week. Make sure the house is clean.
Gemini: Five star line up this week as Mercury, that impetuous ruler of yours, Mars, Venus, the Sun and the Moon all weave their way into your sign. Too bad Venus is still acting like an errant child, too, so romance doesn't hit full force -- at least, not yet. But you are getting wound up tight as can be, and things are looking up. You are really, really active right now. The New Moon is a great time to begin some new endeavor. Just watch the romance right now.
Cancer: Your money tree looks like it will bare fruit. That's the good news. It doesn't look like this harvest will come too soon, though, and you need to be aware of that. Relationships, especially of the romantic variety, seem to be a bit on edge lately, as if some one has irritated a sore a spot. Sorry about that. Just remember: in an outboard motor, there is a proper mixture of oil and gas to make the engine run smoothly. Make sure you have the right amount of oil to make the relationship motor run well.
Leo: The week starts out on an emotionally upbeat note. That's the good news. But by the end of the week, there are these little fears, not the big ones,mind you, just the little ones which all come crawling into your mind. I'm not a therapist, nor do I play one of TV, but some sort of self-help direction wouldn't be too bad, if nothing else, just to relieve yourself of these needless fears. And I won't tell anyone that a Leo might have some fear.
Virgo: Everybody else is having a tough go of it, and why should you be any different? At least, that should be your perspective for this week. In fact, just to address this specifically, have you ever thought about cleaning out the tackle box? Get all those nasty pieces of bait which have mutated into a new life form out of there? Straighten up around your workplace, too, because you are going to need a sense of order going into the weekend.
Libra: I've been accused of picking on Libra's because they can be so indecisive. It's that Scales and Balance thing, you know, the Libra ability to see everything from both sides. The deal is this: this week, you have a certain decisive quality about you, rather than an indecisive quality. Good week to fish or cut bait, as that proverbial expression goes, because you will find that your mind is razor sharp, and you can make quick (and accurate) decisions.
Scorpio: This week, the Scorpio tendency not to change is a good thing. There will be some unexpected events which will try to knock your off your path to destiny. Don't let the little guys get in your way right now. These events can be minor distractions, or they can be major occurrences which really shake you. Of course, after what you've been through already, nothing can be that serious, right?
Sagittarius: There is a great change going right now. And you are part of the leadership material for the next millennium. Good news. "Bad news?" you Sagittarius's ask. Sometimes we try to hold onto our home life a little too much. Relax and be a bit more carefree. Life is going to be good. And the planetary influence right now is merely asking for a change, not demanding it.
Capricorn: How's dream land, dear Capricorn friend? Hope all is well out there. You have all the drive and ability to achieve those things you want this week. Don't let aspirations which fall a little short of perfect get you down. There is a tendency, especially this week, to let a dream fade away because the harsh real world isn't as pretty as the picture you held in your head. You have to be willing to strive for the perfection. Kind of sounds like Virgo thing, doesn't it?
Aquarius: "He was like an exchange student from Uranus." is what Mick says in Michael Bishop's book, Count Geiger Blues. Sort of hits you in real big way this week because you feel a little at odds with the world. There is all kinds of good energy flowing your way, good car karma this week, good ability to communicate, good just about everything. And that's why you feel like you are on another planet. Like Mick says.
Pisces: I wouldn't say that it was going to a be a challenging week, but there have been better times. Fortunately, for you, you have such an ebullient attitude these days that none of this mess will get you down. There you go, all week long, merrily making your way through the world while it seems like everyone else is turning to you with their problems. Help where you can, but I was strongly advise against any new self-help projects this week for you.
