Rockie Horoscope 140

June 14-20, 2002

If you know your ascendant, read it too.

GENERAL FORECAST: Flag Day 2002 has a decidedly martial attitude, mainly because militant Mars is transiting both the USA's and the Chief Executive's Cancer sun. Draw your own conclusions, but, please, leave your firearms at home. Ironically, peaceable Venus leaves Cancer for Leo that day. On Wednesday the Gemini sun trines futuristic Uranus, thereby rewarding Trekkies, revolutionaries and humanists alike. A genial, literate Mercury-Venus sextile on Thursday brings spring to a close. The summer solstice arrives on Friday morning.

ARIES (March 20-April 19)

Which role suits you best?Patriot or provocateur? Since your risk-taking Mars ruler is on the USA Cancer sun, this year Flag Day can mean a lot more than it has in the past. Friday is also the day lovable Venus enters Leo, a fire sign that responds well to the heat generated by the randy Ram. The next four weeks might be more sociable, more creative and a lot more romantic than you anticipate. A surprise around the 19th from friends who pull something you would never expect.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Friendly neighbors or a sociable sibling extend warm invitations and veiled threats. Come play or else! Can you afford to turn down what'll wind up to be an expensive exercise in reciprocity? Small potatoes? No way. What happens while your Venus ruler transits lavish Leo is less about money than it is about heart and how big yours is. For an influx of income, look to the weird, wonderful world of science, technology and TV when the sun in your Gemini money house is rewarded by Uranus.

Divine inspiration comes in many guises; this week the one to pay attention to is your intuitive sense of what'll fly and what won't. Intelligent air signs such as yours have a natural affinity to entities ruled by Aquarius; that encompasses all of humankind as well as the odd bird. While the Gemini sun is favored by forward-looking Uranus, what you truly aspire to become and the boundaries you hope to surmount seem attainable. Now that Mercury is finally moving on, maybe you should book a flight out of here.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Moon children born around Independence Day, e.g., George W., should find a way to channel the extra energy, and bigger set of balls, they'll get from having aggressive Mars on their natal sun. Fighting mad pretty much describes what'll happen if you can't find an appropriate outlet for your passion. Since you don't often have this ability to launch new projects with such ease or to leap tall buildings in a single bound, be sure to maximize the opportunities that do appear.

LEO (July 23-August 22)

One month you're feeling challenged; the next, you're reaping rewards you may not deserve. So goes the yo-yo effect. This week Leos can discover they're being supported in unusual ways by people they don't know very well. Acquaintances of associates and other tenuous ties are the ones that might bind you to a brand-new experience. While your sun ruler in Gemini favors eclectic Uranus, a few of your hopes and wishes -- 11th house stuff -- may materialize. But don't expect material gains right away.

VIRGO (August 23-September 22)

Now that your Mercury ruler is moving forward and picking up speed, the travel bug could bite real hard and become a bona fide pest. Should you go or stay put, drive or fly? The same can be said about your inquisitive mind. Enroll in school or study independently? While patience is not a typically Virgoan virtue, what ensues from the decision you finally reach could pay off after Mercury conjuncts Saturn in your career midheaven on July 2. Until then, court your co-workers and serve your fellow-man.

LIBRA (September 23-October 22)

If a woman has been pressuring you to be all that you can be and then some, relax. On Friday your Venus ruler leaves the sign of the Crab with its emphasis on family values for the luxury-loving, warm-hearted sign of the pussycat. Four weeks of party-going for business and pleasure follows, and all you have to do is tame your mane and look your best. You'll be particularly attractive and well-spoken (well-reviewed, too) on the 19th and 20th when Mercury and Venus form a mutually supportive sextile.

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21)

Joint money matters, insurance and real estate are the areas that are currently lit. Since you are an enigma, the occult and other mysteries can be crucial, too. Matters relating to the eighth house, i.e., sex, death and other people's money, which are traditionally ruled by Scorpio, become more crucial during Gemini, the sign on the cusp of Scorpio's eighth house. Don't be surprised if a housing issue is resolved while the Gemini sun favors unpredictable Uranus in your Aquarius home base.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21)

Archers born in November are the first to feel a warm glow from loving Venus after she crosses into Leo, another compatible fire sign. Since the goddess is transiting your house of sex, regeneration and other people's money, chances are you'll enjoy some, if not all of the above. At least until Venus moves on to ninth house interests, e.g., trips to foreign lands and forays into metaphysics. Saturn, however, continues to make a close relationship frustrating or basically boring. Win some, lose some.

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 20)

Capricorns, more than most, really appreciate the income generated when they do more than one job and make consistently intelligent choices. This is especially true while the Gemini sun in your house of the daily grind favors eclectic Uranus in your Aquarius money house. Reward yourself with an unusual item or the latest in high-tech gadgetry. Relations with business partners and spouses could deteriorate while argumentative Mars claws its way through the sign of the Crab for another four weeks.

AQUARIUS (January 21-February 18)

The Water-Bearer plays a major role in this week's scenario. Because your free-wheeling Uranus ruler is being graced by the Gemini sun, you're the sign who gets the most out of a good time. Whether you're dancing or romancing, activities related to recreation and creation, including reproduction, figure prominently. Enjoy yourself. Once the summer is officially here, you're apt to become more responsible and duty-bound, more the life-guard than the hoop star.

PISCES (February 19-March 19)

Fish born in February are susceptible to the allure that eccentricity and other unusual features of family life are currently emitting. They should check their wiring and cable connections before bringing more stuff into the house. Oddball relatives, particularly parents, might pleasantly surprise you, but don't expect anything that smacks of consistent behavior. Fish born in March should blow off the old folks and concentrate instead on entertaining and educating the small fry. Take them out to the ball game.
