The Astrology Forecast and Horoscopes for June 7, 2021 – June 13, 2021

The astrology and horoscope forecast for the week beginning June 7, 2021, features a solar eclipse in Gemini, Mars moving into Leo, and a befuddling Sun square Neptune.

But let’s begin with the obvious – Mercury is retrograde in Gemini until June 22.

Even though Mercury is moving again, albeit slowly, we will continue to experience Mercury retrograde issues.  Expect problems with communication, electronic devices, plans, and it’s best to avoid signing documents or making decisions unless you have no other choice. 

Astrology Hot Spots

Solar Eclipse in Gemini:

This week we have a solar eclipse in the sign of Gemini.  Now ordinarily, solar eclipses usually affect heads of state, government leaders, high-powered corporate execs, and notable personalities on the world stage.  The good news is that solar eclipses are not as potent as lunar eclipses (In astrology, the Moon rules ordinary people). 

Since the sign of Gemini involves communication, during the eclipse, you may have difficulty communicating with others or getting your point across.  Further, you may have trouble understanding others as well. As with all eclipses, it is recommended that you slow down, practice self-care, and hydrate.  Since the eclipse is square Neptune, I would also recommend avoiding alcohol and mood-altering substances.  The solar eclipse happens on Thursday at 6:53 AM EST.

Mars in Leo:

This week, Mars moves out of Cancer and into fiery Leo.  In astrology, Mars is in his fall in Cancer, so he will appreciate moving into a sign more to his liking – and so will you!  If your ‘get up and go’ has been broken over the last six weeks or you have been less energetic than usual, Mars in Leo will help you get your mojo back.

Mars in Leo is energetic, motivating, and likes to get things done.  This is one of Mars’s best placements if you need a jolt of courage (remember that cowardly lion in the Wizard of Oz?).  You may also find that your creative juices will flow steadily.  Mars does tangle with Saturn and Uranus while he is in Leo, but I will cover the astrology of that next month.

Mars remains in Leo until July 29.

Sun square Neptune:

Now and then, we all need a break, and Sunday is the day to do it since the Sun squares Neptune in Pisces.

In astrology, while the Sun is in Gemini, he likes to socialize, communicate with others, and share ideas and opinions.  But sometimes, we can go into information overload and just need a break, and Neptune is more than happy to oblige.

This weekend, you may have the urge to disconnect from the rest of the world, cancel plans, and do nothing of importance. Instead, you may want to spend the day resting, enjoying some music, or watching a movie.  Chilling will be your primary objective.

However, one bit of caution, avoid putting too much faith in the wrong people because they most likely will let you down.

Weekly Horoscopes

Aries:

Financial issues may be a concern at the beginning of the week but should be resolved quickly.  Communication issues with close friends or siblings may surface during the solar eclipse, leaving you bewildered and confused.  However, your mojo should return on Friday when your ruler Mars moves into Leo. Do something that you enjoy and pleases you this weekend.

Taurus:

At the beginning of the week, you may need to make your desires a priority with the Moon moving through your solar 1st house. Towards the middle of the week, your finances may be a concern as the solar eclipse triggers your financial sector. Expect unresolved family issues to surface this weekend when Mars switches signs, but you will find that you have the upper hand. If someone asks to borrow money, think twice because they probably won’t pay you back.

Gemini:

Gemini, even you may experience information overload and may need to disconnect and rest at the beginning of the week, but do not fret; your social needs will bounce back on Friday when Mars moves into Leo.  The solar eclipse this week occurs in your solar 1st house and reflects a new cycle for you.  Release the old and embrace the new.  On Sunday, don’t trust everything you see or hear.

Cancer:

 The solar eclipse this week may cause unresolved personal issues to resurface. You may feel confused and uncertain about the steps you need to take to resolve your problems.  The good news is that the strong focus in your solar 11th house means that a supportive friend or colleague may come to your rescue.  On Friday, as Mars moves into Leo, a burst of energy in the financial sector of your horoscope may brighten the next six weeks.

Leo:

Minor career disruptions may crop up at the beginning of the week, leaving you feeling annoyed, but this rain cloud will pass relatively quickly. The eclipse occurs in your solar 11th house, and you may need to make changes to your crew, especially when it becomes apparent that there is a snake in your midst. The good news is that this week Mars moves into your sign on Friday and begins a new cycle of motivation and optimism that should last for the next six weeks.

Virgo:

The solar eclipse this season lands in your career sector, and now is the time to take things to the next level because your reputation and continued success may depend on it.  However, be careful of acting too rashly because Mars in Leo will move through your unfortunate 12th house for the next six weeks.  Although your career may be your central focus, make sure you devote enough attention to your relationships because your partners may not feel like they are a priority.  This weekend, someone new may enter your life that shares your beliefs.

Libra:

This week, what looks like a curse you may be able to channel into a blessing.  The eclipse occurs in your solar 9th house, and a new quest for knowledge will be your focus over the next six months. This may include studying new subjects or traveling to discover other cultures. On Friday, Mars moves into your friendship sector, and you may feel like the belle of the ball as your popularity soars.  However, take some time to rest on Sunday because you deserve a break.

Scorpio:

The solar eclipse lands in your 8th house this week. Over the next six months, your primary focus may be on your financial obligations and debt reduction. The good news is that Mars moves into your career sector, and you may see a boost of energy, promotions, or improved standing that could increase your finances. This weekend, unexpected events will lead to a surprising understanding of yourself and others.

Sagittarius:

This week the eclipse lands in your solar 7th house of relationships and partnerships, but since Mercury rules your solar 10th house, business alliances may be a focus over the next six months.  On Friday,
Mars moves into Leo, and since you are a fire sign, your optimistic spirit will surge once again. This weekend, you will have a desire to try new things, especially if it makes you feel inspired.

Capricorn:

You may need to change your day-to-day activities as the eclipse lands in your solar 6th house.  This may include changes to your diet, exercise regime, and the amount of rest you get.  Mars moves into Leo on Friday, bringing family issues front and center over the next six weeks.  You may need to make a difficult decision you would rather avoid.  This weekend, do something exciting that helps break up the usual monotony. 

Aquarius:

This week begins with mild family issues that should resolve themselves easily. You may notice that you are more focused on yourself than you usually are because the eclipse lands in your solar 5th house. Over the next six months, your primary focus will be on getting your personal needs met, but issues with children may also be a focus. On Friday, Mars moves into Leo, and your relationships will heat up. It’s also an excellent time for you single Aquarius folk to attract someone new if factors in your horoscope support it.

Pisces:

The eclipse this week lands in your solar 4th house of home and family.  Over the next six months, you may notice that your focus will be on family relations, connecting with those you are closest to, home repairs or making a move. Be cautious of family members hovering too closely because they may have a dubious hidden agenda.  On Friday, Mars moves into Leo, and your diet and personal fitness become an issue. Avoid foods that cause inflammation.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast and Horoscopes for May 31, 2021 – June 6, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of May 31, 2021, features an energetically calmer week until we get to the weekend when all hell breaks loose.

So, make sure you enjoy the good vibes while they last!

Let’s dive in…

Astro Hot Spots:

Mercury Rx in Gemini / Mercury square Neptune

Just a reminder, Mercury turned retrograde on Saturday in a close applying square to Neptune in Pisces.  Throughout the week, communication will continue to break down until the exact conjunction on Saturday, June 5.   Expect misunderstandings, brain fog, and problems seeing the truth to be the significant themes throughout the week.  Also, as usual, during Mercury retrograde – avoid signing documents, making major decisions, and expect electronic devices to break down.

Venus in Cancer / Venus trine Jupiter

On Wednesday, Venus leaves social Gemini and enters Cancer.  In the sign of the crab, you will find that Venus is much more sentimental, affectionate and needs to feel like she belongs to someone.  You will be more sensitive to the actions and reactions of those you care about, especially family members and romantic interests. When Venus is in Cancer, I suggest that people stay at home and find activities that will help them create deeper bonds and lasting memories.  Venus remains in Cancer until June 27.

Immediately following Venus’ ingress into Cancer (Thursday), Venus will form a beneficial trine to Jupiter in Pisces. Venus trine Jupiter is a favorable aspect, and emotional situations that are currently experiencing difficulties may get some relief.  Your feelings towards others will improve, and you will have an increased need to connect with those you care for.  Additionally, this is a great time to repair any damage to relationships and get them moving in the right direction once again.

Venus trine Jupiter is also great for business meetings, negotiations, and all financial matters.  Just keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde before finalizing decisions.

Sun trine Saturn

Most of the time, when you hear an astrologer say the planet Saturn, you will listen to moans and groans that reflect the other person’s displeasure. Let me be frank – Saturn can be a difficult planet, especially when he is conjoined, squared, or opposed to another planet.  Just look at the cosmic tsunami unleashed in 2020 when Saturn conjoined a filled basket of inhabitants in Capricorn. However, the sextile and trines tend to bring out the ‘ringed one’ positive side.

On Thursday, the Sun forms a trine to Saturn in Aquarius, and this aspect tends to stabilize our lives. This doesn’t mean that problems will magically go away; instead, our outlook will be more balanced, and we are willing to put forth the effort to make things happen. Oh, and of course, we will be more disciplined.

Thursday and Friday are great days to accomplish something or complete a task.  Work and career-related matters should flow easily, and you may receive acknowledgment for your hard work. Just make sure that you get what you need finished by the weekend because the energies are pretty intense.

Mars opposes Pluto

Of all the planetary aspects, I find Mars oppose Pluto one of the most difficult to manage because we are more reactive when we are in situations that are difficult to control.  To make matters worse, the “nasties” (meaning nasty people) tend to crawl out of their caves and are in ‘full on’ attack mode.

You may find yourself at odds with others, especially if you feel controlled and manipulated. In its most extreme mode, Mars oppose Pluto can be violent, so avoid situations where conflict may occur. Mars opposes Pluto on Saturday afternoon.

Sign Breakdowns

Aries

You may need to make a concerted effort to keep a watch on your tongue as Mercury retrogrades in your solar 3rd house. Projects that involve discipline and the cooperation of others should flow smoothly midweek. Possible quarrels with family members may occur this weekend. Try to control your reaction to others, especially those on a powertrip.

Taurus

Mercury retrogrades through your solar 2nd house, and it’s time to put your financial affairs in order. This week is an excellent time to review banking information, due bills, and balance your checkbook to get to the bottom line.  Towards the middle of the week, you may receive recognition for a job well done. However, keep your opinions to yourself this weekend to avoid unnecessary conflicts.

Gemini

Geminis, you are in the hot seat this retrograde cycle because Mercury is moving through your sign. You may need to take an honest look at your life and make course corrections if required. Towards the middle of the week, career opportunities will allow you to shine.  However, this weekend, ghosts from the past may burst out of the closet, leaving you anxious and overwhelmed.

Cancer

This week Mercury retrograde moves through your solar 12th house, and it’s time to put the final nail in the coffin on unresolved situations.  You may find people that you have prior beef with resurfacing like a pack of hell hounds.  The good news is that once you resolve these issues, they will likely disappear once and for all.  This weekend avoid unnecessary relationship conflicts.

Leo

Mercury retrograde is going to wreak havoc in your solar 11th house of friends and associates.  You may spend the retrograde cycle dealing with a gossip or trouble maker forcing you to clear toxic people from your crew.  Reviewing your investments or overall fiscal picture may be a theme midweek. This weekend problematic people may try to affect your vibe. Ignore them if possible.

Virgo

Career-related issues will be your primary theme throughout the Mercury retrograde cycle.  You may feel that no matter how much effort you muster, it’s never enough to accomplish your goals.  You may receive some relief when a supportive friend rescues you with some advice and a dose of tender loving care.  Avoid arguments this weekend, especially with children or young people.

Libra

Mercury retrograde in your solar 9th house means that you need to check and recheck travel plans to ensure your trips go smoothly. Avoid unnecessary headaches by practicing due diligence. On Thursday, Venus moves into your solar 10th house and shines a spotlight on your career. Positive opportunities occur when you least expect them.  This weekend, stay on guard; someone may attempt to hurt your reputation. Nip it in the bud as quickly as possible.

Scorpio

Mercury retrograde moves through your debt-oriented solar 8th house.  You may need to take a close look at your finances and prepare for unexpected expenses.  Emotional conflicts may smooth over later in the week as the Sun trines Saturn.  But, this weekend, avoid arguments over opinions or political matters because it’s not worth the potential long-term damage.

Sagittarius

Relationship issues may be a problem during this Mercury retrograde cycle, mainly if past grievances or imbalance exists. You may have difficulties seeing your partners clearly, and it would be a wise decision to listen before you speak.  Close friends may be a source of support and security that you can rely on. This weekend, avoid places where conflict is likely to occur because it may put an avoidable dent in your wallet.

Capricorn

Work-related matters, schedules, and deadlines may be an unavoidable canker sore this Mercury retrograde season.  You may experience moments when you feel like you are getting the run around from those you depend on, forcing you to take on more than you can handle. Unexpected financial wins could occur midweek. Relationship conflicts may erupt when you least expect them over the weekend.

Aquarius

People from the past may resurface, leaving you both anxious and intrigued. Although you may initially like the attention, remember there is a reason you put them in the rearview mirror in the first place.  You may get an opportunity to have some fun towards the middle of the week, so take advantage of invites from others that may feed your social soul. Job-related issues may be a source of conflict this weekend.

Pisces

You may have problems with appliances or electronic devices as Mercury retrogrades through your solar 4th house.  These pesky annoyances could leave you rattled and anxious. The good news is that a knight (or lady) in shining armor may arrive when you need them the most, midweek.  This weekend, stay on guard; conflicts and arguments may irrevocably damage your friendships. Avoid argumentative people.
