26 June 1993
Some of Ariana’s relationships and friendships will have reached their use-by date, bringing separations and her personal affairs may need to be sorted out. She must try to avoid disagreements getting in the way of amicable resolutions. She will need to be careful not to push friends and loved ones right out of her life. Getting involved in intense, vigorous sports will be a big help to her mental and emotional wellbeing.
ARIES 21 Mar – 20 Apr
Family issues that have been swept under the carpet are going to resurface. There will need to be detailed examination, so you arrive at the core elements and determine how best to handle them. Neptune went retrograde on 23 June, bringing into question our sense of place in the world.
TAURUS 21 Apr – 21 May
This is a good time for research and investigation or to uncover secrets. Go ahead and speak your truth, this is not a time to hold back. A conversation that turns back time will be enlightening, and your domestic quarters will a buzz with activity.
GEMINI 22 May – 21 June
Be certain to check financial statements carefully so you know exactly what is coming in and going out of your bank accounts. Mercury opposite Pluto creates a battle ofideas, either within your own mind or between competitors, possibly sparking fierce debates or even arguments.
CANCER 22 June – 22 July
Timely communications with a colleague will offer invaluable advice and could recall a lesson from the past. Watch out for relationships that are operating with unclear expectations, as this Mercury retrograde period will highlight confusion in personal dealings, especially those that feel unbalanced or unreciprocated.
LEO 23 July – 23 Aug
Mercury retrograde began in your privacy sector on 17 June and lasts for several weeks. You could notice some secrets emerge that you didn’t know about or be seeking closure on things that have come before. Avoid making agreements during Mercury retrograde, as they will falter later.
VIRGO 24 Aug – 23 Sept
Some big cosmic shifts this month are helping you to grow emotionally, mentally and spiritually. The prize is that instead of people pleasing, you will be building a better relationship with yourself. Exploring a new work, personal or social environment will bring intriguing discoveries.
LIBRA 24 Sept – 23 Oct
While it’s never a bad thing to be practical and weigh your options, over-analysing every last detail prevents you from moving forward. Remember that spontaneity and inspiration are important factors in decision-making, too. It’s not a case of ‘look before you leap’ but rather ‘he who hesitates is lost’.
SCORPIO 24 Oct – 22 Nov
You’ve been pushing yourself so hard the past few years that you’ve forgotten how to recognise your own needs and rhythms sometimes. Make an extra effort to connect with your closest friends and most trusted confidantes – those you trust most to take care of your gentle heart.
SAGITTARIUS 23 Nov – 21 Dec
The great thing about you, Sagittarius, is that you are naturally wired to see the bigger picture. You have so many options available to you, so trust that whatever changes take place are just one part of a great journey. So be willing to surrender this week!
CAPRICORN 22 Dec – 20 Jan
From 19 June until 13 July, Mercury, the planet of communication turns retrograde in critical Cancer and opposes powerful Pluto in Capricorn. Aspects of your loved ones that you have not seen before suddenly come to light and, if not dealt with positively, then separations are likely.
AQUARIUS 21 Jan – 19 Feb
Venus retrograde ends on 25 June and a few days later (30 June), Jupiter and Pluto connect in Capricorn. These two celestial bodies only align every 13 years, so their bond is an important astrological happening. For Aquarius, this will inspire you to deepen your spirituality and emotional intelligence.
PISCES 20 Feb – 20 Mar
Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto all went retrograde earlier this year and Neptune followed suit on 23 June. These outer planets are slower-moving celestial bodies with longer retrograde periods that will last throughout the next few months. Their energies have a subtle effect, causing you to question your sense of being.
