Star Signs by Tamara

Monday June 4th– Sunday June 10th 2012
In the middle of eclipse “season” we are all a little more on edge. A
lunar eclipse Monday is followed by a rare and unusual Venus occultation
occurring June 5th – not seen again until 2117. This intensifies issues
that we’ve been dealing with since May 5th and at least one could burst
this week. If we weren’t sure before, what’s important to us will become
very clear. But Neptune’s station retrograde muddles issues first; find
your way out of confusion, chaos and emotionalism. Think before you act
– especially before Wednesday.

Aries (March 21-April 19)
You’ve probably already seen opportunities opening in publishing,
broadcasting, digital media or academia. Or travel and connections with
foreigners. Even your in-laws or siblings are playing a larger role.
You’re in the mood to expand your horizons and easily soaking up
knowledge. You could even be thinking of teaching what you know, or
mentoring a younger version of yourself. Wouldn’t that be fun! You’re also
getting out more in your neighborhood and maybe assisting with some
community projects. And somebody from your past, either professional or
personal could return to discuss unfinished business. You’ve been feeling
neglected by a partner, but don’t worry, relationships come back to life
after June 27th. Why not focus on work; use your time productively and
forget about how frustrated you are. Or try harder to get their attention
– just add some fire-breathing exercises to your foreplay.

Taurus (April 20-May20)
Interesting new developments have arisen in your love life, no doubt
related to the increasing charm and confidence you’ve demonstrated this
past year. Go ahead-be as flirtatious as you like but don’t make promises.
You’ve also been re-assessing certain existing relationships to determine
how they help or hinder your personal goals. Perhaps you’re thinking
you’ve misjudged someone or that you moved too fast. Don’t worry-a little
distance can’t hurt, and if romantic, you’ll just be seen as more
mysterious or intriguing. Meanwhile, you could find creative ways to spice
things up when your relationship is back on track. This current set of
eclipses marks the beginning of a 6-12 month period of outstanding new
sources of income. And with Planet Jupiter still in your sign this last
week, don’t close the door on any offers-you never know what they could

Gemini (May 21-June20)
Circumstances are heating up in a home or property matter, pushing you to
act with purpose and urgency. It should be clear by now that you need to
distance yourself from a particular person. Confrontations and “moments of
truth” are due now with eclipses in your sign. You’re also likely to
change your appearance in some noticeable way to reflect the changes that
are going on inside. For example you could lose weight or change your hair
style or colour. Or transform your wardrobe or presentation style. Now is
your best phase all year, when energy is high and your charm yields easy
results, no matter what you do. You’re more popular than ever, calm and
confident. If single and looking, love is attracted to you; just be your
sparkling self. And like a plane on the launch pad, if you’ve prepared,
this is your year for take-off.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
An interesting work or roommate matter could intensify this week; stay
alert yet calm. Someone’s behind-the-scenes maneuvering could help save
the day; especially around money. You’ve met so many new people this past
year, and many of them have remained interesting acquaintances. But a few
have turned into supportive friends; sources of guidance and strength.
They’ve brought you golden and lucky opportunities to help materialize
your goals and push you forward in ways you couldn’t do alone. Home,
family or property matters continue to be frustrating, though you’re
getting used to it by now. What’s different is that you’ve found new ways
to approach problems, relying more on your intuition and unconventional or
creative ideas that come out of nowhere, especially before June 27th. Keep
romance discreet and behind the scenes – just the way you like it.

Leo (July 23-August 22.)
Let your wild mane of hair down, Leo, and enjoy your friends; the ones you
neglected when professional priorities took precedence in May. This latest
set of eclipses opens a long-term chapter of socializing with old friends
and networking with new ones. And some of these new contacts could bring
the chance for romance, or at least some interesting new introductions,
especially this week. Though the groundwork’s been set, keep building on
career goals, and expect all delays to lift by end of June; when you’ll
feel incredibly proud of what you’ve accomplished. It’s been a wild yet
interesting ride, and you’ve enjoyed benefits in career that you haven’t
seen in years. Midweek could bring confusion around finances, especially
those connected to a partner, bank or insurance company. Debt, too, could
rear its ugly head.

Virgo (August 23-Sept 22)
Virgo, you’ve been a real warrior, blessed with courage and determination.
Others have come to see you as a leader; a sexy one. Maybe you’re
travelling in a foreign country or doing international business,
especially involving publishing or broadcasting of your message. These
areas, as well as education or metaphysics, have been lucky for you this
past year. If travelling is not an option, you could hear good news around
a publicity project, or academic results if you’re a student. You’re still
in high demand professionally and definitely on an upswing. In fact
midweek could bring opportunities via a friend or partner you reconnect
with. You could finally start to see the kind of recognition in career for
which you’ve worked so hard. Thanks to Monday’s eclipse, you’ll soon have
chance to settle a home or family-related matter; maybe it’s time for a

Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22)
Thanks to Venus, both money and love have slowed right down and it’s not
the best time to start a new business or romantic courtship; one of your
trademark skills. If you do meet someone new, you might find the chemistry
lacking. Use this time instead to iron out past problems in an established
relationship, whether business or personal, as you’ve likely seen at least
one setback. You’re seeking improvements in the way you live; particularly
concerning home or property but now is not the time to act; things are
moving slowly. Better opportunities come in September. For now, you’re
re-shaping your attitudes and opinions; lectures, book signings, even
thought-provoking movies inspire you now. Your mind is craving
intellectual stimulation. Maybe you’ll meet this need through returning to
school or through travel. Better get your passport ready.

Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21)
For the past year, you’ve had the generous and lucky charm Jupiter in your
relationship sector. This has granted you abundant opportunities to meet
wonderful people in both your business and personal life. Maybe some of
you even got engaged or married this past year; and or met the perfect
agent to represent you or ideal business partner. Hopefully you made the
most of this advantageous period as it soon leaves your sector of
one-to-one partnerships; getting set to charge and illuminate your
financial world. With one week left, why not celebrate its glowing
influence with an ‘appreciation’ party. What relationship this past year
has had a marvelous and fulfilling impact on your life? Eclipses too,
usher in a new long-term period of re-framing and re-organizing your
finances, such as job benefits, insurance matters or other major
settlements. It could also help you discover a second source of income.

Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21)
With Venus retrograde, it’s not the time to make big decisions in love,
and if attached, you may feel ignored by your partner. In fact, you’ve
probably noticed festering wounds or sensitivities coming to the surface;
especially early in the week when words are spoken without thought. If
you’re dating and hoping to see a big rock on your finger, it’s more
likely after June 27th when issues have been dealt with. So clear the air
with some honest discussions. And if playing the field, be alert to
flirtations that could pop up at work; hopefully they’re not with your
boss. This past year has been focused on health or work issues, and you’ve
had more than your fair share of luck. Even as generous Jupiter prepares
to leaves this sector, you could hear back news about a particular job; or
answers and solutions to remaining health or fitness dilemmas.

Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19)
Opportunities for happiness, like romance and children, have been
particularly abundant this past year; and you should by now be in a state
of emotional bliss. You could still either meet the person of your dreams
or if already in love, create a family. Saturn has been dropping obstacles
and frustrations in your professional path since 2009 and you’ve certainly
had to be flexible. But you know all these sacrifices are building a solid
foundation that you’ll be proud of. Work has been enjoyable lately and
there’s one project in particular that demands all your focus. It probably
saw several setbacks recently and you’ve had to change your strategy. Or
maybe just polish and refine the details of your plan. Despite being up to
your eyeballs in work, this week brings awareness of a new problem; a
conflict between home or family matters and foreign contacts or countries.
Beware temper flare-ups.

Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18)
You’ve been focused on home or family matters and seen brilliant
opportunities since April. You’ve had the chance to transform certain
dreams into reality; for buying, selling, renovating or just decorating
your home. Or working with or helping one of your parents. Now, turn your
attention to love and other creative pursuits. Consider the idea of
writing a book, screenplay or giving workshops. Or getting involved in
television production or some innovative technology. You certainly don’t
lack the imagination. Love has begun to sprout too, and if single, this
current set of eclipses could push you towards the person of your dreams.
Dating is easy and fun and you can afford to take it slow. And since your
values are still in flux, a friendship or association with a group could
come to an end – they just don’t fit into your life anymore.

Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
Your communication skills have become so much more sophisticated this past
year, and you’ve found innovative ways to showcase your talents to a wider
audience, whether clients, consumers or voters. Because you’re naturally
artistic you may be designing, writing, directing, choreographing,
marketing or anything else that requires imagination. Opportunities have
been overflowing this past year around advertising or sales, or anything
involving transportation or coordination. And you’ve made some nice profit
too. You’ve also been accomplishing things within a partnership and
travelling more for work. A marvelous chance to move recently came up, if
you’ve been looking; or to buy the kind of property you dream of. Maybe a
boat or beachfront villa? Hold off on final agreements before June 27th
though, as Venus retrograde tends to slow down or frustrate money matters.
For now, enjoy peaceful loving at home and if frustrated, move some
furniture around.
