Your horoscope from June 26 to July 2, 2014

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Mars in a provoking alignment with Uranus has kept the edginess, volatility, and chaos going strong these past few weeks. Friday’s new moon in Cancer maintains the emotionalism as it forms hard angles with Pluto, Uranus, and Mars. Softening Neptune and anchoring Saturn offer a channel or an outlet and are mitigating to some extent. Still, in terms of finding our way clear, we have further to go. Thankfully, we now come to the end of Mercury retrograde.

      The moon trines Neptune on Friday, and the sun does so on Sunday. It’s a preaching-to-the-converted, good-vibes planetary backdrop for the last weekend of the jazz festival. The weekend also cooks it up just right for romance, moviegoing, or spiritual respite. Venus square Neptune on Sunday afternoon is soulful, loving, and inspirational, but on a cautionary note, this combination can also be one of blurred lines and dissipation, of missing the point or buying into it. Keep tabs on your valuables, vices, and consumption levels. Please don’t drink and drive.

      Mercury retrograde ends on Tuesday at 5:50 a.m. Communication tracks improve; plans, projects, negotiations, and sales will now see a better move-along. This is good timing and is helpful to organizers racing through the last-minute setup for Canada Day festivities. Wednesday/Thursday continues a productive trend, but know there isn’t much reprieve as the stars keep the action and intensity going through the first half of July.

      March 20 - April 19

      Your roles, needs, and wants; home, family, and finances—everything is changing. Yes, you’ve been charting the course for some time. Yes, there is more time to put in and more to sort out. Still, you’ll have to admit that the feel and the living it out are a lot different now. See it as a mileage checkpoint. Tuesday onward, get moving on it.

      April 19 - May 20

      This past week has likely been an icebreaker one, but uncertainty can linger, especially through Sunday. Reserve labelling it, deciding it, or acting on it until you gain more information and clarity. Friday through Monday, roll with it. Tuesday through Thursday, you should find yourself gaining better footing. These are good days to top it up, clean it up, or catch up with others.

      May 20 - June 21

      Venus, a recent visitor to Gemini, now puts you back in the game in some added way, but until Sunday when she surpasses Neptune, you may still be in a fog, at a loss, or missing the support or juju. The week ahead can be a mixed bag, but by week’s end, you should feel you’re finally getting somewhere good.

      June 21 - July 22

      Friday’s new moon in Cancer has a lot going for it. Know it or not, so do you. You can’t play it safe, so don’t even try. Instead, challenge yourself to push past the fear or insecurity. Pump your creativity and your can-do for all they’re worth. The stars build pressure through to the next full moon. It’s a clue—rise up, meet it head-on.

      July 22 - August 22

      Mars/Uranus has thrust you into a faster forward, but there are still more planetary hoops to jump through during this first couple of weeks of July. Take your lead from the here and now, and you’ll build better odds for tomorrow’s rewards and results. Through mid July, Venus and Mercury in Gemini boost pleasure, play, romance, profit margins, and earning potentials.

      August 22 - September 22

      Although a reality overhaul has been in the works for a while, you are likely to say that it’s become more obvious to you in the past few days and weeks. Yes, life has thrust you over that previously elusive line in the sand. Look to the end of Mercury retrograde and Venus to keep the good trend going.

      September 22 - October 22

      Mars/Uranus has flicked a major switch. The next two weeks will play it out. On Friday, emotions drive the show, but you’ll get it under control. Saturday/Sunday, stay open-ended and open-minded; save the important stuff for another day. Mercury and Venus in Gemini improve the communication flow. Your social life, love life, and financial prospects gain a boost now too.

      October 23 - November 22

      It’s been an especially full-to-the-brim week. Expect the floodgate to stay open, but to enjoy more fluid movement. Friday’s new moon in Cancer shortens the distance to tomorrow or to that someone special. A special event or a quiet moment—no matter how it’s packaged or what’s in the background, a reward or fulfillment weekend lies ahead.

      November 22 - December 21

      You’ll make better strides going forward from here. Friday’s new moon sets the tone for a well-deserved soak-it-up or cozy-up-for-love weekend. Along with Venus in Gemini and the end of Mercury retrograde, the stars set a more favourable backdrop for same-page accord, money matters, projects, talks, and plans. Still, you can’t switch to autopilot just yet. Stay on top of it.

      December 21 - January 19

      Mars/Uranus has just hit full steam ahead. Although there’s still another week to go before all the big rocks are out of the way, you’ll make better headway now, especially regarding work, health, diet, plans, budgets, and paperwork. Venus in Gemini improves relationship harmony on and off the job. On Sunday, indulge, ease up, and spread the love around.

      January 20 - February 18

      You have more to sort out, but save it for next week, when Mercury and Venus will be in better shape. A weekend of no pressure is ideal. Unwind, relax, and don’t force what isn’t coming naturally. On Sunday, enjoy but don’t jump too far ahead of yourself or your wallet. Take the week ahead one step at a time.

      February 18 - March 20

      Over the hump and on your way; a new life chapter spreads its wings. Friday’s new moon in Cancer siphons great momentum from Neptune, your ruler. Soak it in, soak it up. The now is infused with more than the usual potential. Although today’s reality dictates things to a large extent, it’s your opportunity springboard. Believe, choose, do.
