This week’s stars are all about conversation, education and exciting plans, as Wednesday’s Lunar Eclipse motivates you to dream fabulous dreams for the future. But – in the current Covid climate – ambitious aspirations can be delayed and frustrated. So take things slowly and keep your eyes on the long-term prize. Be especially careful and patient on the weekend, when Mercury starts reversing through your communication and travel zone.
Financial matters look confusing, as you underestimate a major expense or waste money on an inappropriate purchase. You could also doubt your ability to follow through with a project or promise. Learn to trust your talents and feel secure and strong within. If you really believe in yourself, then magical things will happen. Be inspired by birthday great Stevie Nicks, “My life is a testament to believing that if you want something, you can make it happen.”
The Sun, Mercury and Venus are all visiting your sign, which galvanises your very best Gemini traits (like curiosity, congeniality, adaptability and versatility). So make sure you tap into your unique talents. But Wednesday’s Lunar Eclipse lights up your partnership zone and Mercury (your patron planet) starts reversing through Gemini on the weekend. So a complicated close relationship needs to be reviewed, recalibrated, rebooted or completely reinvented.
Have you been burning the midnight oil and now you’re suffering from burnout? Or have you been running around on autopilot, making careless mistakes? With the Sun, Mercury and Venus hibernating in your solitude zone, it’s the perfect week to go AWOL as you slip into hermit Crab mode, simplify your life, prune projects or organise a digital detox. Spending quality time on your own (for some overdue rest and rejuvenation) is absolutely essential at the moment.
This week other people will continually flummox you with their confusing behaviour, so don’t lose sleep trying to work out where they are coming from. And avoid being a cynical Lion who sabotages relationships. Nurture and cherish your close connections. If you’re unhappily single, then keep pursuing your dream of finding your soul mate. Draw inspiration from birthday great, singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks, “I live in the realm of romantic possibility.”
Wednesday’s Lunar Eclipse lights up your home zone so prepare for some domestic dramas and family stand-offs at 20 paces! Then on the weekend, Mercury (your power planet) starts reversing through your career zones (until June 22). So you can expect employment problems, pay delays, workplace worries or conflicts with colleagues. But don’t let current challenges deter you Virgo – Venus will help you thrive with plenty of patience and persistence!
Your kind and charitable nature is highlighted by the Lunar Eclipse. So it’s a good week to get involved in formal volunteer work (especially within your local community) or just lend a hand to a friend, family member or neighbour who’s in need. However the Venus/Neptune square (on Thursday/Friday) increases your tendency to spend too much time in a fantasy world. So avoid making an important decision until you are seeing things in a more realistic light.
Neptune, the Lunar Eclipse and stationing Mercury are scrambling your financial antennae. So it’s not a good week to borrow funds, make investments, buy big-ticket items or lend money to others because you’re liable to make decisions based on fluctuating emotions and confusing information. If you can’t balance the numbers yourself, then employ an expert who can sort it out for you. For shrewd Scorpios, financial knowledge is power.
The Lunar Eclipse is in your sign, which will give you a fiery energy boost. But Mercury is preparing to reverse through your love zone, so a relationship could feel stuck. Do your best to talk about problems with your partner and introduce some exciting new activities into the mix. If you’re single, you could revisit a rocky old romance (while wearing decidedly rose-coloured glasses). Just remember that memories are so seductive because they’re so selective!
Don’t be too hard on yourself or let rattled nerves stop you from doing something you’ve always wanted to do. You’re feeling stressed but try not to sweat the small stuff. Careful preparation is the key. Attached Goats – be passionately proactive and set ambitious goals together. Singles – don’t just dip your toe into the dating pool. Research and planning are required, so that you give yourself the best possible chance of experiencing long-term success in love.
Avoid taking your Aquarian health for granted. Be proactive about making positive lifestyle choices, and prioritise time for regular exercise and nutritious home-cooked meals. As writer (and birthday great) Ralph Waldo Emerson reminds us, “The first wealth is health.” And is a platonic or romantic relationship going through a bumpy patch? Mercury, Venus and the Lunar Eclipse encourage you to work on keeping the lines of communication wide open.
With Neptune (your ruling planet) squaring Venus, have you got your head in the sand? If you avoid dealing with an important issue, then expect more problems. It’s time to face the reality that a family matter has to be completely recalibrated or a major relationship needs to move in a positive new direction. In the words of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver (who was born on May 27, 1975) “People hate change, until the pain of not changing is worse than change itself.”
