Rockie Horoscope 89
If you know your ascendant, read it too.
GENERAL FORECAST: On Flag Day, the Gemini sun merges with benevolent Jupiter and begins a year-long lucky streak for folks who have 22-26 degrees of any sign prominent in their chart. How you deal with the opportunities is up to you. Friday, the sun trines aerodynamic Uranus to send you over the moon. Saturday, the sun and retrograde Mercury conjunct to transmit another major message from the gods. On Father's Day, Mercury, the lower mind, trines Uranus, the higher mind, and blows your mind. Monday, Mercury conjuncts Jupiter to promote your latest, greatest idea. Tuesday, Jupiter in air-borne Gemini trines Uranus in Aquarius for the first time since 1918 (draw your own conclusions), and on the summer solstice, a total eclipse of the sun at 0 Cancer ends one 19-year cycle, kicks off another. Yippee!
ARIES (March 20-April 19)
One 19-year eclipse cycle ends on the summer solstice, another begins that day. Where were you on June 21, 1982, and what has been nourishing your soul since then? In the years to come, what will you eat, and who gets to be Mom? More food for thought: Jupiter trining Uranus on the 19th rewards a challenge you faced last May during their square aspect, probably something to do with an associate rather than a close friend, money and your brave new world. Look beyond your personal agenda, the times they are a-changin.'
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
When it comes to finances, the Bull doesn't fool around. So even if an amazingly profitable money matter falls in your lap, which it is liable to do as the week begins, you need to consider your good fortune from every angle, discuss it with all concerned and seek out advice from knowledgeable bystanders. Once prudent Saturn in your Gemini house of assets is satisfied, and the ethical ramifications have been addressed, then, and only then, will you embrace what is basically your reward for surviving the years Saturn was in Taurus. Congratulations.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
In spite of the soul-searching that springs from the solar eclipse on the solstice, this can be a very mercurial period. The merger of your Mercury ruler and the Gemini sun over the Father's Day weekend provides insights into your early childhood as well as the immediate future. Pay attention. The distant future benefits from a "Eureka!" moment as Mercury trines Uranus on Sunday. Mercury's conjunction to lucky Jupiter on the 18th is the stuff best-sellers are made of. Time to reinvent yourself, again.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Assuming that you're older than 19, you may remember what was going on with your life, in your head the last time (June 21, 1982) there was a solar eclipse on the Gemini-Cancer cusp. Something that started then is ending now and a new variation, another 19-year cycle is beginning. The summer solstice point is a sacred moment when, having been exposed to as much light as we in the northern hemisphere can absorb, we turn inward to prepare for the more soulful aspects of being alive, the wintery dark side. Catch all the rays you can while you can.
LEO (July 23-August 22)
A total solar eclipse is always awesome for Lions ruled by the sun, but the one scheduled for the summer solstice can have a significant effect on you now, and again in three months. That's usually how long it takes to see what develops from the initial impact. Because the eclipse occurs in your house of hopes and humanity, you may take on a new social and political agenda and fall in with a new group of folks who share a common interest. Until then, an old friend, once again, turns out to be your lucky charm.
VIRGO (August 23-September 22)
Check out the major comings and goings of your Mercury ruler in the Gemini forecast. But because Gemini governs your midheaven, the good stuff and brilliant flashes as well as possible delays and reversals will have more of an effect on your career or your relationship with your boss than on your personal life and the way your mind is working. Now is the time to gather a wealth of information, the kind that'll pay off when Mercury passes through your Libra money house in September, (can end here for space or continue with) when the (Patriots) are playing and the (Sox) are in contention. (ed: Fill in teams of choice.)
LIBRA (September 23-October 22)
Much of the interaction between the planets in Gemini is purely cerebral or, if jolly Jupiter is lined up with your natal planets and tickling your funny bone, pretty comical. However, Librans born in mid-October can rise to astronomical heights right about now because altruistic Uranus is also part of the grand trine in air signs that has been lifting you higher. People tend to win the lottery when Jupiter and Uranus are supportive; add your Libra sun to the mix and you become the focus of their expansive, liberating energies.
SCORPIO (October 23-November 21)
No surprise! Sex and money are the matters most affected by the solar eclipse on the 21st, and not simply because you're a Scorpio to whom these matters matter more than most. Folks with Scorpio rising (which is just about everyone you've ever met in a bar) feel the effect of this powerful eclipse taking place on the Gemini-Cancer cusp in their eighth house, which is traditionally ruled by Scorpio. So, one way or another, your position regarding sex, death, the occult and other people's money (e.g., investments, inheritances and insurance) is about to change.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21)
Where have all the partners gone? The inexplicably lucky, ever-protective, supremely intelligent convergence of your benevolent Jupiter ruler, the Gemini sun and Mercury, with an assist from Uranus, the Awakener, in Aquarius should land Mr. or Ms. Righteous right on your doorstep. So, where is the person who is going to liberate you, extend your range of influence, and if you're not careful, publish your memoirs? Maybe this marvel will show up once the super-duper solar eclipse in your marriage house kicks off a new 19-year cycle? Maybe three months later.
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 20)
Flying high and gliding by are hardly traits attributed to well-organized, cautious Capricorns, but right now, if you make a slight adjustment in your m.o. to accomodate a Gemini jack-of-all-trades attitude, you'll be considered quite a success at "growing prosperity." You could also chuck the financial loop-de-loops of that growth process and, instead, work on grounding your artistic aspirations in a firm, sound base under the guidance of a practical-minded guru. Or you could concentrate on beautifying the house and garden one baby step at a time.
AQUARIUS (January 21-February 18)
No matter what else is going on, you are in a fabulous position, being rewarded by magnanimous Jupiter and the mentally stimulating Mercury-sun combination in airy Gemini. Plus all this good stuff stems from your house of romance, children and other creative endeavors. If ever you were going to expand into your Spock persona and prosper like a true Vulcan, now is it. You're also about to enjoy the rewards of a honorable, if sometimes taxing, family life and the spiritual high you, and they, get from it. Also known as: Saturn trine Neptune in Aquarius.
PISCES (February 19-March 19)
Is it time to move again? So much planetary activity in your Gemini home base suggests that you're about to adjust to a new set of circumstances, perhaps another cast of characters. If you can remember what big change occured 19 years ago, prompted by a solar eclipse at the tail end of Gemini, you may be able to see into the future and predict how your home life or relationship with a parent will change. Because Jupiter is involved in this eclipse, abundance, protection, justice and devotion are givens.
