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.

But Neptune’s station retrograde muddles issues first; find your way out of confusion, chaos and emotionalism. Think before you act – especially before Wednesday.

Despite the love for the summer sun and all that it brings, here are some Essential Ibiza heat-reducing tips based on Ayurvedic principles to stay healthy and happy, and to be cool – in more ways than one!
