HOROSCOPE – Wednesday 26 June

Jyotishacharya Shastri Pundit Roshan Singh

ARIES

Mercury begins its transit of your solar fifth house today, dear Aries. Your outlook or attitude is mainly positive, outgoing, and refreshing in the weeks ahead. You express yourself playfully, and your sense of humor is in strong form. Ideas flow very well, and your conversations are mostly understood, although during Mercury’s upcoming retrograde from July 7-31, this may become complicated. Until then, it’s an excellent time for communicating with a lover, siblings, and children, or it can be a time when thoughts and conversations often turn to love, recreation, and creative pursuits. Today is robust for your mood and sense that you can handle most anything. Later today, pre-existing problems in intimate relationships can be working close to the surface, possibly interfering with work and duties. If people have been overstepping their bounds, you can feel frustrated now. It’s a time for seeing the need to make adjustments.

TAURUS

Mercury begins its transit of your solar fourth house, dear Taurus, and in the weeks ahead, you’ll be seeking more security and probably succeeding quite well at the task! There can be a natural and smooth flow of communication with family. Thoughts and conversations often turn to the old days, childhood, home, financial security, domestic pursuits, and personal affairs during this cycle. You’re in an excellent position to work out of your home or in home-related fields. It’s also a sound period for researching, writing, finding ideas, and talking about domestic and neighborhood concerns. Later today, there can be a sense that you’re not able to adequately express yourself or do what you want, primarily due to someone’s watchful eyes, or feelings of guilt or insecurity. Where it concerns money and valuables, you can be on the fence, and it’s better to stay there just for now. Aim to learn from your feelings, as your findings can be precious today.

GEMINI

You’re moving toward a livelier period, generally speaking, dear Gemini. Mercury heads into your solar third house, and in the weeks ahead, you’re communicating, connecting, and getting out and about more than usual. You’re talkative, expressive, interested, and interactive. You express yourself more flowingly, and you’re more inclined to reach out to others. There can be exclusive news or gossip, plenty of information-gathering, a sense of connectedness or feeling on top of your daily affairs, special errands, or increased involvement with siblings or the neighborhood in the weeks ahead. Today’s energies are good for friendships, entertaining, enjoying company, or connecting with your happiness goals and dreams. However, as the day advances, Venus in your sign heads toward a tense aspect with Pluto, and money matters and questions of ownership can be tricky issues, needing delicate handling. Alternatively, there can be doubts about a person in your life or an uncomfortable decision. Aim to find a place of calm before you jump into anything.

CANCER

Mercury begins its transit of your solar second house today, dear Cancer, and the weeks ahead are particularly rewarding for news, ideas, and research about finances, comfort and security matters, and income. You can come up with very creative ideas for making money and doing business, and it’s also an excellent time for developing talents, pursuing hobbies for material gain, and establishing yourself in a particular field. This period is convenient for putting some of your dreams into motion or fleshing out an idea with practical details to make it more workable or perhaps marketable. Today is terrific for the feeling that you’ve accomplished something worthwhile. Even so, later today, ghosts from the past seem to crop up as Venus in your privacy sector heads toward an awkward connection with Pluto. You could be getting in touch with some of the hidden forces at work in your life that may be undermining your relationships. Consider that fears might be at the root of discontent.

LEO

Mercury begins transiting your sign today, dear Leo, and decision-making is more straightforward than it has been, at least for the next few weeks. It’s a time when you’re more forthcoming, and you’re gathering information, thinking, and planning ahead, as well as connecting more spontaneously with others. There can be times when you speak ahead of yourself during this cycle, and you may want to watch for making statements that you haven’t thought through. Otherwise, it’s a fine time for feeling more in control of your thoughts and decisions. Identifying with a friend, pet project, or cause can figure strongly. An upcoming retrograde cycle (from July 7-31) serves to extend Mercury’s stay in your sign beyond the usual. Today is a potentially great day for personal appeal and romantic endeavors, although later on, you may wrestle with reminders of disappointments from your past or feelings of guilt. Try to find healthy outlets for releasing your frustration and make plans to deal with any dilemma that might crop up in a step-by-step manner.

VIRGO

Mercury moves into your solar twelfth house today, dear Virgo, where it will transit for several weeks, bringing some introspective energy to your life. This transit stimulates a need or desire to look at the world around you a little differently. You’re more contemplative and less decisive. You need time to digest and process recent events and ideas. Your intuition plays a more prominent role than usual in the decisions you do make. There can be some challenges focusing and concentrating on mundane matters during this cycle, primarily because you’re more interested in thinking about patterns, subtleties, and emotional issues. Today, family and personal matters tend to fare quite well. In-depth study or research can be useful. Later today, there can be some resentments or fears that distract you from your priorities. If this is the case, try to replace negative thoughts with affirmations. It may be helpful to keep in mind that you can’t please everyone!

LIBRA

Mercury enters your friendship sector today, dear Libra, and will transit this area of your solar chart until July 19th. This cycle is strong for sharing ideas and your expertise with others. You’re more inclined to reach out to others for inspiration, and they quite readily connect with you. Ideas entertained now tend to be especially unique or progressive. Cooperation comes easily in group settings. You are also more inclined to think about favorite causes and long-term aspirations during this period. Today is good for teaming or pairing up and coming up with a perfect idea. Later today, we head towards an awkward aspect between Pluto and your ruler, Venus, which can point to a tricky decision or dilemma. You may be craving more freedom on the one hand with Venus in your adventure sector, but emotions are complicated, particularly regarding family matters or a concurrent desire to play things safe. Interactions can stimulate intense feelings, and something or someone might remind you of issues you’d prefer to forget. Even so, this gives you the chance to face and deal with sticky feelings.

SCORPIO

Mercury moves to the top of your solar chart today, dear Scorpio, and this can stimulate your interest in your long-term goals and responsibilities. You may be doing more sharing of your ideas or communicating and mingling on professional or public levels in the weeks ahead. People more readily follow your lead or advice. There may be some restlessness or excessive busy-ness with your work at times, but this is mostly a good time for making executive decisions and getting your message out there. Today, there can be good relations with those you work with or more fun in your daily routines. Later today, though, a Venus-Pluto quincunx comes into influence and can point to some doubts that are difficult to ignore. Old resentments may emerge. There is a strong need for intimacy, but also a desire to control things, and these two things don’t gel well. Avoid overanalyzing, which can take you to frustrating places now.

SAGITTARIUS

Mercury moves into your adventure sector today, dear Sagittarius, presenting an opportune period for exploring all-new ideas and topics. Your mind is open and wants some extra excitement and spontaneity to keep it engaged. Rote learning or routine is not very satisfying in the weeks ahead. You’re in a generally favorable position to be understood and acknowledged, and you’re also more naturally inclined to share your ideas and opinions. Travel, education, studies, courses, and cultural activities are favored. Today, you’re inclined to assert yourself and act independently. Creating something and sharing it with others is a satisfying way of expressing yourself now. Even so, feelings can be overwhelming or merely challenging to understand later today as we approach a Venus-Pluto quincunx transit. People may be giving off confusing or mixed signals, but it’s better to accept that things are temporarily out of sync and avoid jumping to conclusions.

CAPRICORN

Mercury begins its transit of your intimacy sector today, dear Capricorn, bringing increased attention to, or interest in, the mysteries and subtleties of life. Your mind is investigative in the weeks ahead. You’re likely to enjoy interesting insights into inner motivations, behind the scenes activities, and secrets as you naturally read between the lines and seek out the deeper meaning in matters. Conversations with a partner can be especially rewarding now. If you need to straighten out financial problems and issues of ownership or discuss trickier relationship topics, this is a better time to do so. Even so, some of the things you’re talking about and deciding in the weeks ahead may need revision later when Mercury turns retrograde from July 7-31. Today’s energies are good for feeling rooted and secure. Support comes from behind the scenes. Later today, though, a Venus-Pluto awkward angle comes into influence and can point to frustration if someone isn’t quite following your lead or if you’re feeling brushed aside. You could find that others are making too many demands on you or your resources, relying too much on you without giving enough in return. If so, this is a time for recognizing imbalances that may be undermining your progress or relationships.

AQUARIUS

Mercury begins its transit of your partnership sector today, dear Aquarius, and in the weeks ahead, you especially enjoy bouncing around ideas with someone. Through your interactions, you get to know your opinions and ideas more clearly, and you stand to learn much through one-on-one conversations. You seek out others, and they seek you. Friends are more available, and you might treat a partner more as a friend now. Your ability to see and consider the other side of the coin strengthens, and this not only helps endear you to others, but it also allows for a whole new perspective. Mental cooperation with others is more important to you now. Today is suitable for making connections but also keeping some level of independence or detachment as you do. Good advice can be exchanged. Later today, though, there may be some friction due to heightened sensitivity or touchiness. Defensiveness and resistance are possible. If others are pushing your buttons, try to keep a cool head. It makes sense to acknowledge insecurities or fears that emerge now.

PISCES

Mercury moves into your sector of habits, health, and work today, dear Pisces, and will spend a little longer than usual in this area of your solar chart this year due to an upcoming retrograde. You’re likely to have a lot on your mind during this cycle, with a more significant focus on practical details, routines, health, work, and everyday life. Keep this to a moderate level, and you’re in excellent shape. You are detail-oriented, but also a little inclined to fret or worry over various issues. Today is good for income, gifts, and money matters in general. As you help and share, you naturally draw resources your way. As the day advances, however, a Venus-Pluto aspect comes into play, and vulnerable spots and insecurities are more evident in your relationships. It may be difficult to confront issues directly with this transit. Mixed signals are likely.

HOROSCOPE – Tuesday 25 June

Jyotishacharya Shastri Pundit Roshan Singh

ARIES

It may be best to continue to take extra time arriving at decisions and making commitments for the time being, dear Aries, particularly if a whim seems to come over you suddenly. The Moon spends the day in your sign, and you can be more focused than usual on your personal goals, projects, moods, and needs. Clashing demands or kinks in your plans can be part of the picture as the Moon conflicts with the Sun, but this can get you motivated to do a little more or put in the extra effort to reach your aspirations. The Moon in your sign encourages a “me focus” even if loved ones have other plans for you! You can experience a stronger desire or need to share your ideas, beliefs, personal philosophies, or perspectives with others.

TAURUS

Watch for impulse spending today, dear Taurus, since a Venus-Uranus minor conflict can stimulate a desire for something different. Others may not be as reliable as you’d like, perhaps as they react to your shows of independence. The Moon spends the day in the sign just behind yours, signaling it’s finishing up its cycle of your solar chart and needs to wind down. It’s a fine time for a healthy escape, although you may resist it on some level, or circumstances conspire to keep you busy today. While your life is more hectic or active than usual these days, the Moon transits your privacy sector, and you’re inclined to need a short break from all of this movement or stimulation. Writing down thoughts may be useful if you’d prefer not to speak about them, as it can be helpful to organize and sort them.

GEMINI

You can feel quite restless, and as a result, you may end up stirring the pot with others, dear Gemini. There could be something that’s said that is either not representative of the complete picture or brings up strange feelings. Today’s Moon encourages you to diversify, even if this seems to clash with your recent needs for more predictability in your life. Part of you wants to settle into a comfortable pace, and another is seeking newness and movement. Underlying tensions in close relationships can emerge, perhaps at an inopportune moment or abruptly. A bit of discomfort now could lead to useful adjustments, however, and these may serve you well. Aim to be honest with yourself now, even if you’re not sharing everything with others, which can be just fine.

CANCER

You’re in a cheerful mood, and keeping it light with others is important right now, dear Cancer, as people are not inclined to make substantial commitments today. This is not the best day for sticking to the rules or for focused attention, since plans may not pan out as expected, but perhaps the most noticeable area of life with unexpected results is your social life. There can be a disagreement or obstacle to deal with, or you can experience an inner conflict about going your own way and doing what others expect of you. Your patience can wear thin at times today, but you could also find the motivation to fix a problem that ultimately serves you well. Today’s Moon encourages a focus on your responsibilities to others or the outside world.

LEO

While the Moon’s transit of your adventure sector stirs a desire for extracurricular activities, dear Leo, career matters or longer-term goals are actively on your mind. Cravings can be hard to pinpoint, however, as you can be entertaining many different ideas and it can be challenging to settle on any particular one. Again today, avoid the inclination to do too much, as you may get in over your head. However, diversifying may be just what’s needed as long as this doesn’t reach a point where you’re so scattered you feel overwhelmed. You have excellent opportunities for connecting well with someone or a project you love, and through taking care of your relationship or pouring extra care into a special pursuit, you gain a sense of accomplishment.

VIRGO

Your emotional needs seem more demanding than they have been, dear Virgo, and while this may seem to clash with a general craving for more lighthearted interactions in your life these days, it’s essential to get in touch with some of your deeper or more hidden needs. You do have more social inclinations or a desire to experiment and explore, but this shouldn’t interfere too much with your emotional side. In fact, you’ll be at your best today if you can find ways to satisfy both needs. You might learn of something helpful that was previously hidden or private as you focus and concentrate. Later today is not ideal for decision making, but not every moment is, so aim to observe and wait things out.

LIBRA

Today’s Moon transit inclines you to seek out some companionship or feedback from someone special, dear Libra. This may not be intuitive at first, as part of you is primarily focused on your personal or professional goals, and freeing up time for other things may seem like you’re stepping backward. However, giving some attention to those deserving in your life can be rewarding, and you’re likely to appreciate the company thoroughly. Ideas generated with a partner or about relationships are winners today. Relationship and practical goals may seem to clash in the first half of the day, but later on, you’ll find it easier to enjoy both. There can be a pleasant advance with a friend, studies, or a sibling occurring now.

SCORPIO

You can be feeling somewhat rebellious in spots today, dear Scorpio, and it can be difficult for others to reach you on an intimate level. The Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, motivating you to handle details, deal with practical affairs, and get some work done. This is in contrast to the Sun’s current mission this month to get you out and about, but it’s still essential for your emotional state. Finding a compromise makes the most sense. You may stumble upon an opportunity to advance towards your goals through an alliance formed now. You can feel that professionally or financially speaking, you’re moving to a better place.

SAGITTARIUS

With another Venus challenge today, dear Sagittarius, someone could catch you off guard or seem unreliable and rebellious. Again, finding your own pleasure makes the most sense. With the Moon’s transit of your entertainment sector, you may very well be seeking lighthearted exchanges or fun activities, although the Sun’s mission in your chart these days is to get you into deeper, heartier, or more substantial pursuits. Do find some time for personal enjoyment. It’s a time for remembering to have fun, entertain and be entertained, and get creative. While a light touch seems to clash with your overall passionate approach these days, you need some time to play and enjoy yourself. Later today, you could find that you’re bonding through shared interests and viewpoints.

CAPRICORN

It can be a little difficult to depend on certain others today, dear Capricorn, and even routine matters can meet with interference. As well, today’s Moon encourages spending more time with family or in familiar situations, even if it seems to conflict with a partnership or sociable mood. Consider that you might need to center yourself and get comfortable for a spell before you can share yourself more freely and happily with others. Taking a bit of space may be precisely what you need right now. Soulful moments or everyday activities are in the spotlight.

AQUARIUS

There can be some erratic or surprising events in your personal life today, dear Aquarius, with another Venus challenge. You could find it hard to satisfy an itch, especially if you’re not entirely sure its origin. Consider that you need a change of pace, and look for something to update and improve. The Moon clashes with the Sun today, and you may feel you have a little too much on your plate. The trick will be to keep your head on straight! Multi-tasking is okay for you right now, and can even benefit you, but too much is too much. The Moon encourages a more curious, active, and mental approach to the day, as well as attention to personal interests and contacts, even though this seems to clash with your recent focus on duties. Friends or a partner can be supportive and cooperative.

PISCES

Today’s Moon encourages you to stick with familiar activities, dear Pisces, and although this mission may seem to clash with your desire to innovate, share, and connect, it’s good for you to settle in and get comfortable now. You may wish to get close to someone who is seemingly disinterested or resistant, however. Compliments or appreciation that you crave may not be forthcoming right now, but it’s temporary. Be gentle with yourself and wait out significant decisions for best results. Business and work matters can strengthen despite this, and you may very well be on the road toward a substantial advance.

HOROSCOPE – Monday 24 June

Jyotishacharya Shastri Pundit Roshan Singh

ARIES

The Venus-Neptune aspect early today can point to blurred or distorted perceptions of value, dear Aries, and for some, transportation or communications systems can be especially unreliable. You might be captivated by ideas, objects, or people, but you are unlikely to be seeing these things clearly. Wishful thinking can cloud the truth of a situation. While it’s undoubtedly pleasant in the present, disappointment can follow. The Moon continues its transit of your privacy sector until tonight when it moves into your sign and you naturally come out of your shell. Until then, sticking with quiet activities is most helpful and healing emotionally. As the day advances, you tend to feel more in control, even if you’re more retiring than usual.

TAURUS

With a Venus-Neptune square early today, dear Taurus, you can be a little elusive or face elusiveness in others. If you are not feeling equipped to make decisions and commitments, it makes the most sense to wait until you’re clear and confident. For now, wishful thinking tends to cloud a situation. Since Venus is your ruler, you can be in a bit of a state of flux, and it may be best to avoid lending and spending just for now. As the day advances, however, you feel far more courageous and empowered. Shared philosophies, beliefs, or goals are apparent now, perhaps because you’re seeking them out. You’re also looking to push your usual boundaries gently, and you’re seeking out different experiences.

GEMINI

With Venus in your sign, you are more personable than usual these days, dear Gemini. This morning’s conflict between Venus and Neptune can render it a little too easy to misread a situation or to see things through the lens of wishful thinking, which can put you in a vulnerable position. Confusion about your general direction can play with your mind and confuse your personal choices temporarily. Take steps to avoid paying too much for something or making promises that you are unlikely to want to fulfill later. If you’ve been chasing a dream that’s leaving you exhausted, remind yourself that a dream is supposed to make you happy! Your confidence and conviction are likely to increase as the day advances. Pleasant surprises may be part of your day.

CANCER

You can be feeling more sensitive than usual on a social or affectionate level early today, dear Cancer, and this can lead to a greater awareness of your vulnerabilities. Try not to let sentiments and whims blur your judgment, however, and if you’re feeling misunderstood, try to ride things out. The need to make a change could become evident, and it may take some time to figure out precisely what to do next, so be easy on yourself. As the day advances, you’re likely to feel more sure-footed. You can have a craving for engaging experiences and a break from the routine or a change of scenery. You may get on the same page with a particular person in your life regarding beliefs, ideas, and ideals.

LEO

The Venus-Neptune aspect early today can suggest something’s up in the air, dear Leo, and while it can play with your head, it’s better to wait things out than make big decisions based on what you’re currently seeing. Do your best not to over-commit. If financial or support issues are confusing, you can feel the uncertainty now more than usual, which can also affect your ability to enjoy yourself. Expectations of others may be set too high or too low, and the best strategy is to aim to enjoy yourself rather than pin your hopes on something in particular. As the day advances, you feel surer of yourself. Memories or dreams today can be motivating and can even lead to new takes on a current situation.

VIRGO

The Venus-Neptune square early today can point to a minor letdown if you haven’t been viewing someone, a relationship, or a situation clearly, dear Virgo. Although looking the other way can soothe you temporarily, you can’t honestly fool yourself all the time. Aim to work on putting illusions behind you, and avoid letting confusion in your personal life affect your professional dealings today. As the day advances, you can find yourself far more confident. The desire to support or entertain others is at the forefront, and it can be a much-needed diversion after demanding or tense days. You can also feel more courageous about facing reality on a matter, feeling better to be in the know.

LIBRA

Early today continues some hazy astrological weather, dear Libra, and uncertainty surrounding your work or schedule, or a commitment to take care of someone, can figure strongly now. You can feel quite sensitive or vulnerable as you’re more emotionally invested in an idea, dream, or belief. Be sure to take care of yourself, not only others. Do your best to keep your feet on the ground. As the day advances, you can feel much better about seeing situations for what they are. You could feel a strong desire to organize your life in small but essential–and beneficial–ways. Narrowing tasks down can improve your mood. Even if you don’t accomplish as much as you’d like, the act of starting is better than not starting at all.

SCORPIO

You may not be in the best position to judge things in your personal life or in matters in which you’re emotionally invested early today, dear Scorpio. You may not see a person or relationship clearly. As well, it can be difficult getting a firm commitment from someone or definite answers to your questions, and it’s probably best not to make significant or permanent decisions right now since waiting things out makes better sense. As the day advances, you’re especially willing to share your generous mood with the people around you. It’s a time for appreciating or making the most of your leisure time and for enjoying your romantic imagination.

SAGITTARIUS

Your perception of a relationship may be a little off early today, dear Sagittarius, whether it’s due to wishful thinking or insecurities. Perhaps you are giving too much or too little to a situation, or you are having troubles seeing a matter objectively. There can be a vague yearning for something more from your connections. However, your best bet is to channel energies into a creative pursuit and take charge of your own happiness. This way, you avoid putting pressure on a relationship to be perfect or something it’s not. At the same time, it’s an opportunity to figure out what may be lacking in your life so that you can make plans to change the situation. Even as the day advances and the fog lifts, you would be wise to take this time to tone things down and enjoy yourself. It’s a time for paying more attention to emotional needs and support systems. You are particularly enthusiastic about coming to a psychological understanding of yourself and the people you care about. Private and intimate matters soar with self-honesty and openness.

CAPRICORN

Early today, expectations of others may be a little off the mark, dear Capricorn, with uncertainty hanging heavy over you. Don’t undersell yourself, but avoid pinning all of your hopes in something far out of reach just for now. Time can be one of the best tools for testing a theory or perception, as with time, reason tends to set in. Again today, avoid over-committing yourself. As the day advances, you can feel surer of yourself and capabilities. You may take an active interest in learning new things or connecting with others. You can find it particularly comfortable and satisfying to connect with someone one-on-one. If you’ve held yourself to special projects and ideas recently, then this is your opportunity to diversify and put your feelers out.

AQUARIUS

While Venus in your solar fifth house is strong for creative, pleasurable, and romantic pursuits these days, dear Aquarius, its square to Neptune early today can be tricky for situations requiring objectivity. You can find it difficult to see others and yourself clearly. Taking a risk or turning a blind eye to a problem can have unfavorable results. Aim to invest your emotions in something you have and love rather than pin your hopes on something out of reach just for now. Don’t sell yourself short, particularly in your relationships, but also in business. As the day advances, things feel less foggy, and the mood suits you well. You feel more sure-footed. You’re inclined to focus on your physical needs, content with the simple pleasures and comforts of life. Even so, pleasant and fun communications may be part of the day.

PISCES

A Venus-Neptune square active this morning may cloud your perception of those things in which your heart is very much involved, dear Pisces. Your desire for security, comfort, and peace is particularly strong these days with Venus in your home and family sector, but today, you may feel a little unfulfilled or yearning for more than the usual or ordinary. You’re also particularly sensitive to imbalances in your personal life. Do your best to avoid going to emotional extremes and take the time to get in touch with your real needs. As the day advances, you begin to march to your own inner “drummer,” and you’re setting the pace. It can feel good to be in control and on top of things.

HOROSCOPE – Saturday 22 June

Jyotishacharya Shastri Pundit Roshan Singh

ARIES

You’re likely to enjoy increased personal magnetism, dear Aries. You are more able to put plans into motion or to pursue your desires right now. Talking things through is helpful, and you’ll find others quite supportive. Allowing and exercising more freedom in your relationships is essential now, especially with a couple of days ahead that point to up and down feelings. Avoid giving in to impulses and sudden desires, but do treat yourself to some form of light indulgence or extravagance, preferably something that you won’t later regret. Working from or on the home can be successful now, and for some of you, this is a time for doing a great balancing act between your personal and private lives or creatively combining them. Your appeal is especially high through your pleasing communications and gestures. Your mood is sociable, but by late morning, you’re ready for some downtime.

TAURUS

This is a time for focusing on the more positive elements of your life, dear Taurus, and there are many. Practical matters can thrive today. There can be good news, or sound support, on the level of health and wellness. Avoid overly impulsive moves right now, but do treat yourself to a small indulgence. People are drawn to you today as you have a little extra oomph. It’s a potentially excellent day for creative thinking, particularly related to finances. You’re putting new spins on old ideas, and you might find something valuable to you that you’d lost. Do your best to enjoy the moment. The Moon moves into your solar eleventh house, where it will stay until late Monday, and this transit takes away the emphasis from performance and stimulates your interest in socializing.

GEMINI

Venus in your sign forms a parallel with Mars, dear Gemini, boosting your appeal and charm. It’s a good time for personal attraction and also a positive influence for gifts or windfalls in some cases. Take advantage of situations that allow you to express your inner child. It’s a good time for friendly competition and for finding support and nurturing in unexpected places. Open the windows and let the fresh air flow in! Overall, the day is strong for connecting and bonding with others. Taming restlessness can go a long way towards fulfillment today and tomorrow, as there can be fantastic opportunities to enjoy yourself although some tendency to overdo things. The Moon enters your career and goals sector today, however, where it will stay through to late Monday, and this can stimulate your ambitions.

CANCER

There is good energy with you today for personal and family matters, dear Cancer. Perhaps new freedoms are afforded you now, and it feels great. The day’s energies may seem to favor emotions and pleasures over practical activities, and it would be wise to allow more time for yourself to get things done if you’re on call. This is a bright day for personal magnetism, although you can also be a little retiring and not very easy to get close to just for now. As well, you tend to weigh the pros and cons rather than jump into action with love and affections for the time being. A strong attraction is possible, and it may be about a renewal of old feelings for someone. The Moon’s move into your spirit sector stimulates your desire for a little more from your life.

LEO

The Moon moves into your solar eighth house today, dear Leo, where it will stay until late Monday, and this can bring on a slightly more reflective disposition or a tendency to some introspection for a couple of days. Non-material related matters tend to thrive most today. Aim to enjoy the pleasing, freeing energy available to you now. Helping others can be one such way, as you can feel especially good about responding to others’ needs and wants and doing what you can to support them. There can be new interests or a reawakening of interests experienced now. Friends or ventures that excite you can be in focus. Do watch for desires that seem to come on too quickly, as they may only be masks for what you truly want.

VIRGO

You’re inclined to want to let go of problems that don’t seem to have an immediate resolution today, dear Virgo. You seem to need a break! There can be an indulgent, passive quality to the day, and you can be quite amenable, in the mood to spoil someone you care about. There can be some exciting and creative energy stimulated with a love interest for some of you. The Moon enters your partnership zone today where it will stay until late Monday, bringing out your need to be with others, but most of all, with a significant someone. One-on-one seems the most appealing and beneficial during this cycle.

LIBRA

Especially fine energy is with you on a personal level, dear Libra, but material affairs can also benefit. Letting go of tension and frustration can help you enjoy yourself, and creative efforts can be rewarding. With your ruler, Venus, parallel Mars, your magnetism is strong, particularly when you’re moving outside of your routines and embracing new ideas and possibilities. Teaching, authoring, and communications, in general, can be exceptionally favorable or satisfying. There can be some opportunities for pleasure and enjoyment emerging now, and you’ll have better luck with them if you aim to let go of the tendency to overthink. The Moon enters your work and service sector, however, which can stimulate an emotional need to contribute and produce. Work and health can be in stronger focus for a couple of days.

SCORPIO

The day is intense for going after what you desire with increased charm and warmth, dear Scorpio, and you’re a little freer with the expression of your feelings. Your sense of humor is in the spotlight and appealing. You are moving out of a domestic or withdrawn frame of mind, and you could be itching to do something creative or share your ideas and affections with others. This can also be a time when you successfully express an opinion that you previously felt was beyond words. It can feel marvelous to be understood by someone special now. Today’s energies do seem to encourage us to go a little overboard, and this can reach a peak tomorrow, but all in all, it’s a good time for connecting with your needs and wants.

SAGITTARIUS

Relations can be spontaneous, freeing, and positive with friends or a partner today, dear Sagittarius. Interchanges are lively. This is a day for getting closer to your heart. Desires can feel pressing but you’re not interested in pushing too hard to achieve them if it would set you back, and you are giving off good vibes. You’re in great shape to enjoy the creative opportunities coming your way now, although it’s important to avoid going overboard with your ruler, Jupiter, angling towards an opposition to Venus. Despite all of this, the Moon moves into your home and family sector for a couple of days, and this brings out the desire to surround yourself with familiar people and to stick with what you know just for the time being. Attention to personal matters is most appropriate now.

CAPRICORN

The day has some very bright spots, dear Capricorn, although it’s wise to watch for immoderate actions today and tomorrow. There can be an excellent sense of freedom or support and nurturing experience in work environments. New insights or simply a new or fresh attitude can make life easier when it comes to your routines and obligations. Relationships energize you today, and you can be feeling particularly motivated to get what you want or to pursue your desires. With Venus and Mars coming together in a parallel aspect, you’re in a good position for personal energy, dynamism, and appeal. The Moon moves into your communications zone where it will stay until late Monday, stimulating your curiosity and desire for movement, learning, and connecting.

AQUARIUS

The Moon moves out of your sign and into your solar second house today, dear Aquarius, prompting you to want to stabilize a project or specific structures in your life. You have a stronger need to take care of what you have and own. There can be good feelings of support and freedom experienced on creative levels. Your audience can be opening up, and your experiences are broader these days. Interesting people and ideas seem to be all around you. It’s a strong time to network, as people are enjoying your perspective and supporting your ideas. You may have the chance to bring increased creativity to problem-solving or to your work today, or you may be filled with a need to create, connect, and share.

PISCES

There can be a freeing feeling associated with the release of private or personal problems and more freedoms with family today, dear Pisces. Today is active for social and romantic matters, too, although there can be some changes of plans or a scattered feel to the day to manage. Activities with friends and lovers can be invigorating, and perhaps some crossover feelings are stimulated now. The Moon moves into your sign, where it will spend time for a couple of days, and it’s a time for more emotional clarity as well as urgency, as emotional needs can feel pressing. This transit can point to a sense of personal refreshment and revival as you begin your lunar month.

HOROSCOPE – Friday 21 June

Jyotishacharya Shastri Pundit Roshan Singh

ARIES

The Sun enters your home and family sector today, dear Aries, and will spend the coming month here at the bottom of your solar chart. Worldly ambitions tend to take a backseat now as you focus on feeling secure and content in your personal life–a vital mission! This transit stimulates a stronger need to get back in touch with family and enjoy activities revolving around the home. You may be reconnecting with a deep need for inner peace and comfort, enjoying quieter and perhaps emotionally safer pursuits. Building up inner strength and nurturing the self as well as loved ones are in the spotlight until July 22nd. It can be a time for stepping into your comfort zone! Today, however, is rather sociable in flavor. You have a taste for the different, new, and progressive.

TAURUS

The Sun moves into the communications sector of your solar chart today, dear Taurus, transiting here until July 22nd, and the coming month should be a busy one. You’re more engaged with others but not always focused. You’re taking special pride and interest in your environment, communications, and interactions, making it an excellent time to boost your connections and projects. This cycle is more about discovery and branching out than specializing, but it’s a key one for gathering intel and exploring new interests or developing skills. Today, you’re perhaps a little more ambitious than usual, and you’re especially aware of what others expect of you with the Moon transiting the top of your solar chart. You’re likely to have someone very much in your corner when you need it most.

GEMINI

The Sun ends its yearly transit of your sign today, moving forward into your sector of values and resources where it will spend a month, dear Gemini. You’ll now be pouring more energy and heart into stabilizing your life and putting ideas to work for you. Until July 22nd, money and possessions, comfort, sensual enjoyment, and simple, pleasurable activities assume more importance in your life. You may get the chance to take better charge of your money or care of your valuables, develop your resources, and establish yourself in a significant way. This can also be a time for making the most of your natural talents and abilities. Today, however, is suitable for breaking out of your usual routine and adding just a dash of adventure to your life.

CANCER

The Sun begins its yearly, month-long visit to your sign today, dear Cancer, and you’re at a personal peak of sorts. You are more inclined to take mindful action rather than only react to what is going on around you. Remind yourself that you have more power than usual to make resolutions and to make changes that truly improve your life. As more attention comes to you, you quite naturally want to get your act together. You are more readily attracting what you need into your life now. Even so, the Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, and you’re in a reflective mood. Today is useful for finding ways to satisfy both your need for familiarity and comfort or family and your desire for adventure and discovery.

LEO

The Sun begins its transit of the most private, tucked away sector of your solar chart, dear Leo, and will stay there until July 22nd. This is a period for a tidy-up on an emotional, spiritual, or mental level. Emerging now is the need to look back, reflect, and reconsider before you move forward with personal plans. This yearly month-long cycle is natural for some helpful introspection. Goals may not be apparent or could need some refinement. You are gathering your strength for busier times to come, but also reflecting upon recent events and shedding attitudes and situations that have run their natural course. With the Moon in your partnership sector today, however, you’re inclined to seek out company, and you do quite well in pairs!

VIRGO

Today the Sun enters your sector of friendships, wishes, and hopes, dear Virgo, and will continue to visit this house of your solar chart until July 22nd. This cycle stimulates your need to connect with people who share common aspirations, or it serves to reignite the flame of your own goals and hopes. Being part of a team or group effort can be especially satisfying now. You are less concerned with career or life plan goals now, and increasingly interested in what makes you happy, and what you are contributing to the world. You are entertaining more progressive ideas these days, and people are looking upon you quite favorably. Today is good for detail work and organizing. Family may be especially supportive now, or you can feel inspired to boost home life.

LIBRA

Professional and public matters can be in stronger focus in the coming month, dear Libra, with the Sun entering your reputation and career sector today. Mercury and Mars are already in this area of your solar chart. You are more goal-oriented at this time of year, and primarily focused on (or invested in) your performance, responsibilities, accomplishments, image, and life-path goals. Your motivation to succeed can strengthen. Others are noticing your work or your achievements, making it wise to show your more responsible, competent side. Today, however, is a day for a smooth flow of creativity and pleasing communications. You seem to be able to express yourself and come off the way you intend.

SCORPIO

The Sun begins transiting your adventure sector today, dear Scorpio, and until July 22nd, the desire to break the usual routine and engage your mind and spirit is strong. Seeing the big picture helps to free you from taking small problems too seriously. In the month ahead, the more adventurous and exploratory side of your nature emerges, and it’s time for a change of scenery, whatever that means to you! Today, however, the Moon spends another day in your home and family sector, and the desire to settle in and seek out comforting, grounding, and familiar activities is strong. A right balance between alone time and moments of sharing would be ideal and quite possible now.

SAGITTARIUS

The Sun begins its transit of your solar eighth house today, dear Sagittarius, and it will continue to light up this sector of your chart until July 22nd. Sharing on intimate and financial levels, personal empowerment, attachments, and deep emotions are themes of this area of the chart. Support in whatever form can be a big focus now, and more easily attracted. The coming weeks can put the spotlight on your ability to share and blend with a partner or to better understand yourself as you face the need to improve, change, and transform. You can be especially attracted to challenges that take you out of your comfort zone. Today, reaching out to others is favored. You’re more emotionally invested than usual in your ideas, beliefs, and projects.

CAPRICORN

The Sun moves into your partnership sector today, dear Capricorn, where it will transit until July 22nd, and the coming weeks can be particularly relationship-focused. It’s a more social time of the year when there’s a spotlight on close friendships and partnerships. You can learn a lot about yourself and your life through others now, as they can provide a mirror for certain aspects of yourself that you haven’t truly seen. It’s a period when compromise and negotiation tend to serve you best. Today, with the Moon’s transit of your solar second house, you’re more inclined than usual to focus on the here and now. Confidence in your ability to get things done, to make a living, and to take good care of yourself and others is with you. You require an extra dose of steadiness and predictability in your life.

AQUARIUS

The Sun begins its transit of your solar sixth house today, dear Aquarius, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until July 22nd. Health and fitness goals, as well as work and daily routines, can come into sharper focus during this cycle, although Mercury and Mars have already stirred the pot in these areas for you in recent weeks. Schedules, routines, and organization in your life assume more importance, making this a great time to take care of details that help get your life into smooth working order. Pride in these systems, your work, or your self-care programs is pronounced during this cycle. Today, the Moon spends the day in your sign, connecting with Jupiter in your social sector, and this might facilitate a happy connection with someone special.

PISCES

The Sun begins its month-long transit of the sector of your solar chart today, dear Pisces. This area of your chart rules your individuality and creative expression, and both Mercury and Mars have been in this “show and tell” sector for some weeks, stirring up the performer in you. It’s a time for celebrating and expressing your talents, abilities, and affections. You’re more openly affectionate and playful at this time of year. A stronger urge is with you to create, put talents to use, show others what you can do, experience and enjoy romance, and more thoroughly enjoy life’s pleasures. Today, however, the Moon continues its transit of your privacy sector for another day, and it may not be until tomorrow that you feel more fully outgoing or expressive.

HOROSCOPE – Thursday 20 June

Jyotishacharya Shastri Pundit Roshan Singh

ARIES

With the Moon now in your solar eleventh house, dear Aries, pressures to perform tend to release as you seek out other activities to help round out your experiences. Neptune’s station can make it hard to concentrate today, however. If you avoid expecting immediate results and instead try to “go with the flow,” you can slowly but surely find your inspiration or reconnect with what inspires you. Until November 27th while Neptune is retrograde, you may get the opportunity to make peace with a disappointment and put it behind you. Today’s strong for creating intelligent strategies, despite a general lack of direction.

TAURUS

With the Moon at the top of your solar chart today, dear Taurus, you’re especially alert to your performance, reputation, or responsibilities. With Neptune in your friendship sector beginning its yearly retrograde cycle, however, the focus is also on your social life, and you are likely to see new layers to a relationship or a person in the five months ahead. While you may temporarily feel without a clear anchor in the social side of your life, you’re working towards a more balanced perspective on these matters which will evolve until November 27th. With the shift occurring tomorrow morning, it can be challenging to make precise judgments. If you feel faith is faltering a little today, mainly related to a friend, group, or long-term goal, you might consider it a nudge from the universe to reassess your goals and pay more attention to–or take better care of–your spiritual needs.

GEMINI

The Moon spends the day in your adventure sector, dear Gemini, and this can serve to pull your attention away from material concerns. It comes at a good time since Neptune is just about to turn retrograde for five-plus months, and panning out on a mental level can be useful. This yearly retrograde cycle has been occurring in your sector of career and reputation in recent years, and a feeling, revelation, or situation can prompt you to pull back from your goals to let things flow and gain a new perspective. It’s possible that there’s a lull in motivation or reason to question your life path, career, status, or reputation, but this encourages taking a second look at your dreams to discern whether they truly reflect you and where you are, ultimately strengthening your convictions. You’re likely to make refinements that reinforce your resolve or faith in your dreams. Today and tomorrow, it’s best to observe rather than make big moves. Even so, it’s a good time for getting to an agreement with someone special.

CANCER

The Moon transits your intimacy and sharing sector all day, dear Cancer, drawing your attention to the hidden elements of life–and yourself. You are more interested in motivations and intentions than you are of surface matters. It’s best to treat today and tomorrow with gentleness and sensitivity with Neptune’s station occurring now. You need some extra inspiration, and it will be your mission to find it. Neptune begins its retrograde cycle today, and although there can be some confusion during the shift itself, you’ll be realigning with beliefs and pursuits that reflect your current growth during this cycle that lasts until November 27th. A disappointment is possible right now, or a matter seems more complicated than it is, but it can lead to a better position overall if you use it as a learning experience. It may be best to observe instead of jumping into action today.

LEO

With the Moon spending the day in your solar seventh house, dear Leo, it’s a time for focusing less on the technical side of life and more on the social aspects. Neptune is reaching a station as it turns retrograde until November 27th, and this shift can have a somewhat confusing effect on your understanding of a relationship, support, or financial matters this week. However, the cycle itself is highly useful for gaining a perspective on these matters. You may be exploring dreams, motivations, and spiritual needs as you look at these matters from a slightly more detached position. If there is a letdown or lull experienced this week, know that it’s temporary and can help redirect you along a more appropriate and empowering path. Today is favorable for expressing yourself creatively and finding new ways to convey your inner message.

VIRGO

It’s important not to overbook yourself today, dear Virgo, even with the Moon’s transit of your work and health sector seeming to egg you on. While you’re geared up to solve problems, there can be some level of mystery or even some confusion to the day with Neptune about to turn retrograde for over five months. Lasting until November 27th, this yearly retrograde cycle is excellent for getting a better understanding of your dreams and ideals. You may be seeing someone or your own relationship needs from a slightly different perspective, and it’s important to let things flow a little more naturally now to most effectively tap into this energy. If you experience a temporary lull or loss of faith in a dream this week, it can lead to valuable insights as you get in touch with what it is you honestly want from a person or a relationship. Give people space, and give yourself time before coming to important conclusions, since boundaries can be a big issue right now.

LIBRA

The Moon spends the day in your creative solar fifth house, dear Libra, and pressures feel less pressing! Even so, Neptune turns retrograde now as it begins its five-plus month retrograde cycle, and there can be some temporary lack of direction or reason to pull yourself back from a dream or plan to get some perspective. This might come in the form of a minor letdown related to work, service, or health areas, but can end up redirecting you on a more authentic path. If your daily life has been chaotic, you’ll feel some of the consequences this week, and this can prompt you to reconsider some of your recent pursuits or plans. Keep in mind that problem areas may feel bigger than life temporarily as they draw your attention to what’s missing. The retrograde cycle itself, lasting until November 27th, is useful for gathering intel.

SCORPIO

With the Moon now in your solar fourth house, dear Scorpio, you’re inclined to want to settle down or settle in, both mentally and physically. This brief but vital transit prompts you to look within or to loved ones for comfort. Neptune is turning retrograde and will spend the coming five-plus months in retrograde motion, pointing to a natural need to step back a little from creative or romantic pursuits to gain perspective. As you let things flow along, you’ll get a stronger idea of which of your dreams and pursuits are genuinely worth your time and energy. If you’re experiencing a dip in motivation or if you’re frustrated with uncertainty as the shift occurs, take things easy, be gentle with yourself and others, and trust that ultimately you’ll feel stronger. This is a time for making observations and adjustments rather than jumping into action.

SAGITTARIUS

The Moon spends the day in your sector of communications and connections today, dear Sagittarius, and you’re in an upbeat and curious frame of mind. Mind you, there can be some feelings of being scattered or undirected now, but overall, this is a good time for putting your feelers out, learning something new, and exploring your options. Neptune is stationing as it turns retrograde, and the shift itself can be a little disorienting. However, the retrograde cycle, lasting until November 27th, is excellent for gaining perspective. In the coming months, you’ll be able to see which of your goals and plans, mainly related to family and home life, are doable, need refinements, or are better off left behind you. Pulling back from some projects or dreams can be strategic. Give yourself extra time to think, imagine, and reflect, and going forward, aim to pay more attention to your spiritual or imaginative side.

CAPRICORN

The Moon spends the day in your solar second house, dear Capricorn, and life tends to slow its pace, or you expect less from it! Today is useful for taking a load off with Neptune at a standstill as it is about to turn retrograde until November 27th. Stopping to find the beauty and magic in your everyday life can be important now. There can be some temporary dip in motivation levels that prompts you to relook at a project or pursuit with new eyes. These minor letdowns can relate to studies, a personal interest, a transportation or communications matter, or a relative with Neptune in your solar third house. In the months ahead, though, you’ll get in touch with the fantasies and dreams that serve you well and let the ones that no longer serve your purpose fall by the wayside. While precision is not at its peak, there can be useful and heartwarming conversations today.

AQUARIUS

The Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Aquarius, and your emotions need channels for expression today. You’re more inclined to seek some acknowledgment or reinforcement. Neptune is stationing and turning retrograde, making it wise to find ways to unwind and let go of tension. During Neptune’s retrograde cycle until November 27th, there can be some rethinking, introspection, and perhaps some indecision about business or money matters. It’s a great period for exploring your dreams and ideals and examining whether you’re connecting with them as you pursue your worldly affairs. The station today, however, can be a little disorienting until you become accustomed to the shift in energy. Keep in mind that things are not as they seem, especially practical affairs and finances, as they can be skewed by wishful thinking or a temporary loss of faith and motivation. Events occurring now can serve as a reminder to get into better touch with what may be missing from your life, particularly on spiritual levels.

PISCES

This can be a time to step out of circulation for a bit, dear Pisces, with your planetary ruler turning retrograde and the Moon spending time in your privacy sector. It makes sense to meditate on your next moves or simply take some time to decompress. There can be some confusion surrounding facts and figures or increased sensitivity as Neptune turns retrograde tomorrow, but the retrograde cycle itself, lasting until November 27th, is favorable for detaching yourself just enough from your ideals and dreams that you get to a more realistic place about them. While you may lose some wind in your sails this week, this can ultimately bring about more balance in your life. Today, you may be noticing what you’re missing on a soul level, which can prompt some important thoughts and awaken you to the need to make some adjustments.

ARIES

People can be sensitive about their ideas or choices today, dear Aries, and career or family drama is possible. Organizing around the home may very well help you feel freer in your work, where you can use as much head-clearing as possible! There can be a struggle between personal and professional responsibilities, and working on finding a better balance will be particularly helpful now. Learning more about your more profound needs can help clarify your long-term and career goals. With the events and realizations of this week, you may recognize that you’re clinging too tightly to your ambitions, and relaxing them just a little may help bring you back to a better work-life balance.

TAURUS

Differences in opinions can be loaded today, dear Taurus, as they may represent something else. In fact, they may be more about feeling accepted and respected. Aspects today tend to trigger insecurities or fears about losing someone’s admiration, or they pull up fears of making changes. Holding onto an idea too tightly now will prevent you from going forward, growing, and moving on. If someone can’t seem to see what you’re seeing, avoid pushing the matter. However, if you need to get something out of your system, then a confrontation may force the issue. The best thing you can do for yourself today is to aim to let something go or to release it and get over a hump, as resentment can rob you of essential commodities–happiness and energy!

GEMINI

People may be misinterpreting your intentions and actions today, dear Gemini, but trying to prove something or pushing too hard for answers can lead to unnecessary and unproductive stress. Consider that others can be defensive, too, or they may feel the need to prove something to you. Arguments over ownership, money, core values, or boundaries can emerge. Money or support problems that may have been weighing you down could reach a turning point, but conflicts over money or possessions may disguise deeper issues. If you’ve been feeling undervalued, frustrations can come to a head now. Keep in mind that compromise would be ideal, but getting there involves giving a little, so be willing. There can be stirrings related to dependencies this week, and the events occurring now can bring problem areas to a head.

CANCER

Again today, communications can be weighty, dear Cancer, and you may feel challenged regarding your plans or ideas with Mercury and Mars in your sign in opposition to Pluto. You could resent it if someone seems to be trying to direct you since you’d much rather be free to express yourself spontaneously. Conflicts emerging today can give you insight into the hidden forces at work in your life that may be undermining your progress and keeping you from moving on and forward. Buried frustrations may erupt or come to a head, and it can be a little tricky, but bringing something that seems dark into the light may very well be a surprising relief. Touchiness is likely, but if you’re willing to get through it and learn something in the process, it can be a highly revealing time.

LEO

Watch for obsessiveness in your thinking that leads to anxiety or guilt, dear Leo. Mercury and Mars are both transiting your privacy sector, and you may not always be aware of their energies if they’re working under the surface of things. Today, they both oppose Pluto, bringing buried matters out into the open, perhaps in disruptive ways. The little things tend to irritate most, especially if there are disrupted schedules to deal with or if others are interfering with your methods or process. With these transits, you need more rest and time to think outside of the routine, but you have strong ambitions related to work or health, and it can be challenging to unwind as a result. You could feel a lot of pressure to get things done, even if your heart isn’t in these tasks or you are not feeling up to par emotionally and physically. Avoid allowing fear or over-attachment hijack your day. Make plans to improve your routines and workload so that you have the chance to unplug and shut things off from time to time.

VIRGO

Words can be sharp and possibly harsh today, dear Virgo, but if you aim to learn from what emerges now, they can ultimately improve understanding. People or circumstances can challenge you to confront important and perhaps previously buried issues in your life. You could find that you’re dealing with pressures and tensions coming from others or problems arising from within in the form of thoughts bordering on the obsessive about matters that are sources of frustration or anger. You may even be flip-flopping between a strong desire to get to the truth of an issue and a fear of doing so! Consider whether you’re holding onto something so tightly that it can’t breathe, and remind yourself that this can only serve to keep you stagnant and stuck. The goal now should be to empower yourself.

LIBRA

It can seem that everyone wants their way, and few are conceding today, dear Libra, which leads to rather tense scenarios. Mercury and Mars are opposing Pluto, and there can be tricky issues with family and authority figures to deal with now. Don’t allow someone to try to control or manipulate you, but consider approaching the situation with care. Alternately, fears of being blindsided can seem to drive decisions. Buried frustrations that have been simmering just below the surface, especially related to family, home, security, and money, can now emerge in conversations or the choices you make. However, mindfulness can help you to make better decisions. Aim to unload rather than dig in your heels and resist learning and growing.

SCORPIO

Minor differences of opinion can too easily become complicated today, dear Scorpio. You can be quick to defend something or express your views but might be frustrated by others’ responses, or you could feel provoked. However, it’s best to aim for self-control and rise above these things, all the while paying attention to what may be triggering frustrations. There can be fear of change at the root of disagreements or tensions now. You’re challenged to grow through your conversations or exposure to different or new ideas, opinions, and methods, or to reframe your thinking rather than hold onto an idea or belief for dear life. When it’s this easy for people to touch upon your sore spots, you’ll find it just as easy to learn about your vulnerabilities and deeper desires. There is confrontational energy with us that can lead to a significant release, but try to be mindful of what you say and how you say it.

SAGITTARIUS

There can be competing feelings in a relationship now, dear Sagittarius, and it can be challenging to make sense of what you and others want at the moment, although conflicts can be revealing. Strong feelings about core values, power dynamics, money, and issues of sharing or ownership can be voiced or reach a boiling point. There can be quite a bit of stirred-up tension surrounding borrowing and lending or relationships can feel some strain if there have been imbalances and resentment brewing over them. Embrace rather than resist change and opportunities to grow, and aim to rise above suspicious thoughts today. Releasing yourself from excessive attachments can figure strongly and can be rewarding, although challenging at the same time. The chances of seeing things more clearly run high.

CAPRICORN

Before you bring up certain sensitive topics today, dear Capricorn, consider whether the climate is right for doing so, since chances are matters require a delicate touch right now. Even so, issues that have been brewing can reach a head today, and their release may be what you need to move forward. Sometimes backing off is the best thing you can do, but it’s up to you since there are times when the release of frustrations can be cathartic. Avoid fixating on negative issues as difficult as this may be today, and do your best not to attempt to mastermind a situation. Ultimately, you’ll feel more empowered if you stay open, flexible, and focused on your own growth rather than worried about what others are saying and doing. The chances of getting to a better place with someone and more comfortable with yourself run high.

AQUARIUS

Tensions are possible today, dear Aquarius, although what emerges is revealing and can point you in the right direction for healing. Pluto aspects occurring now can trigger fears and tension can be quick to set in, especially guilty feelings about the past or about what you’re not doing. You could be dwelling on old hurts, and this doesn’t have to go too far. It’s when spiraling thoughts drive decision-making or lead to regrettable words that you lose out. Frustrations about schedules, duties, obligations, and lack of time to yourself can reach a head, or you may worry about the discovery of a secret. Learn from what seems to trigger you today and work on a plan to tackle it gradually rather than succumb to pressures to deal with things all at once. Be open to learning about your hidden desires if jealousies emerge now.

PISCES

People might be holding on too tightly to their point of view today with Pluto in opposition to Mercury and Mars, dear Pisces, and power trips may be the reason behind this. This kind of stubbornness doesn’t lead to learning experiences or reasonable compromises, only unnecessary stress, so do your best to steer clear of it. Insecurities in relationships can seem to magnify or grow larger than life, or problems in a friendship can reach a head. Mixed signals are possible. You may feel it’s best to stay out of it, but if something needs releasing, this can be a time for turning a corner. Resentment robs you of energy, so do what you can to release and purge rather than hold onto negative feelings. Aim to learn about vulnerable areas that seem to be easily triggered today.

ARIES

You can be excited about a project or idea, but you might also face opposition for it today and tomorrow, dear Aries. If you’re feeling cooped up or unable to express yourself, try not to stir the pot, since it can be all too easy to show impatience. There can be harsh words or impulsive moves. It may be best to keep emotional excitement high by doing something you love, all the while being mindful that you don’t overdo it. The intensity of current aspects could bring nervous energy to your inner world or home life. There can be a sudden need to revisit a neglected area of your life, but tricky power dynamics can be at the root of tensions experienced now. People can be somewhat defensive of their ideas and opinions right now, and it may be best to avoid getting caught in the crossfire. However, when it comes to defending a loved one, it may be a different story altogether.

TAURUS

There can be a lot on your mind or your plate today, dear Taurus. It can be easy to feel excited about a connection or idea now. Interactions with others can be edgy and tense at times as the day advances, or things can seem fine until there’s a difference of opinion. You’re likely to discover that people are holding onto their beliefs quite tightly right now, and there is little that’s rational about it! If you look more closely, however, it’s likely more about power and control than the actual concept. Do your best to maintain a healthy level of detachment when expressing opinions or engaging in a debate with competitive, provocative, and controversial energy around you. However, this can also be a time for discovering hidden desires which can be used as fuel for better decisions or energetic projects and pursuits later.

GEMINI

Mercury and Mars forming an alignment today can inspire you but can also aggravate problems, dear Gemini. On the one hand, it can be a good day for exciting ideas about business, money, and practical matters. On the other, there can also be impatience, and skipping necessary steps can lead to problems. It may be best to channel this mental energy into an important project. As the day advances, both Mercury and Mars move towards a tense aspect with Pluto, and there is a strong tendency for people to be provocative or to get caught up in power games. You could find yourself defending your values, your worth, or even your spending now. Watch for a tendency to want to prove something, and it may be that you’re taking things a little too personally. However, this can also be a highly revealing time since jealousies or frustrations stimulated by the events of this week can get you into touch with feelings or desires you didn’t realize you had.

CANCER

Energies today and tomorrow are complicating and distracting at times, dear Cancer, but ultimately quite revealing. Ideally, through current events, you’ll begin to see precisely what drives you or what you may need to adjust so that you can move forward lighter, freer, or more determined. You might discover that your thoughts, ideas, plans, or passions can meet with obstinacy or disapproval. You could feel blocked and vetoed. If others are playing mind games with you, back off and refuse to be part of it. Be kind to yourself and avoid pushing something too hard, but don’t let go of your passions or motivations in the process. You may need to make adjustments to your goals. It’s wise to avoid impulsive communications so that you can reclaim your personal power with Mercury and Mars joining in your sign, giving you a powerful voice and the courage to say your piece. You are filled with energy and vision today, so try not to waste it on arguing a point. Quick conclusions may lead to regrettable commentary or decisions.

LEO

You might want to gather all of your facts first before speaking on a matter today, dear Leo, as there is a tendency to speak too soon. People are also inclined to jump on others’ words or call them out. Tense thoughts or concerns are important to address today and tomorrow, but avoid letting them take you over to the point that your interactions with others are strained. Arguments entered into today can reach stalemates. If you need to discuss something close to your heart, you might wait for a more accepting atmosphere to do so. You might also discover that keeping a project or idea to yourself is useful just for now. Issues from the past can re-emerge, or news today can make your mind race. If something is pushing your buttons today and tomorrow, pay close attention since it may reveal a hidden or suppressed desire, but also aim to use restraint. Unless you’re channeling mental energy into something creative and positive, avoid letting your imagination run away from you. You may want to gather all the facts before jumping to communicate about a new observation. Watch also for an overactive curiosity, as you may think you’re ready for something when you’re not.

VIRGO

Today’s Mercury-Mars combination can present an opportunity to put a great idea into motion or to settle a long-standing problem, once and for all, dear Virgo. You’re motivated and inspired by new visions of your future, and you can be gathering exciting ideas through your connections to others. However, this aspect is challenged by Pluto today and tomorrow, and there can be impatience or tension interfering with your interactions, and perhaps even a rude awakening. Of course, this may end up working in your favor as it can help you get in touch with hidden desires, but some things may be better off left alone. You can have strong ideas and experience powerful motivation regarding a particular plan, but there can be some blocks or opposition to contend with first. The goal now should be purging. Be kind to yourself by NOT overthinking, or entertaining thoughts that are too negative or obsessive.

LIBRA

Old, buried hurts can jump up at you today, dear Libra, and if you are not careful, they can find expression in one way or another in your conversations. Secrets might be revealed, or previously hidden matters can come to light that might be uncomfortable at first, but in the long run, will push you towards the light. Of course, care should be taken if possible. Stalemates can occur, so avoid pushing matters. It may be better to observe, formulate a strategy, and then act later. Be forthright if you feel compelled to do so, but do it sensitively today, as your words tend to have more impact and can be remembered for some time, and be especially mindful when speaking in public or professional arenas. If you use the tense energies of today and tomorrow constructively, it can be an excellent time for pouring yourself into a project that gets you somewhere.

SCORPIO

You can feel as if you’re on a mission to find out the truth of a matter today and tomorrow, dear Scorpio, but you should probably watch where you step, both literally and metaphorically. You’re mentally sharp, and this is excellent for intellectual and business-related endeavors, but your heart may not be ready for where your mind wants to go right now. It can be an excellent time to pursue anything that involves healing the mind or paying particular attention to the mind-body connection. However, there can be quite a bit of defensiveness and hurt feelings when ideas are not adopted right away, and it’s best not to get caught up in all of this. There are no winners in arguments that don’t have any growth potential. There can also be difficulty advancing your ideas or projects just for now. Frustrations this week may reveal hidden desires, and this can help motivate you in the future, so don’t be too quick to discard what you confront.

SAGITTARIUS

Mental energy runs high today, dear Sagittarius, with a Mercury-Mars alignment that can leave your mind reeling and pulse quickening. Ideas work you up, and you may feel a little fed up with a situation that’s been dragging on too long. Tap into the motivation to do things that you’ve been letting slide. However, consider that things can escalate quickly now, particularly as this planetary pair is heading toward a confrontation with Pluto. There is no benefit in pushing your ideas on someone, especially when it comes to values and issues of sharing. If something feels very unfair, then you need to talk about it, but your choice of words and tone will be especially important now, so keep it light since it’s the kind of day when people can take things entirely the wrong way. You might uncover a secret or pursue a line of research doggedly today, but avoid overdoing things for your own sake.

CAPRICORN

Others can push your buttons today, dear Capricorn, as Mercury and Mars align in your partnership sector. It’s a little too easy to get involved in an argument or standoff since the general tendency is to speak too quickly or harshly and to be a little insensitive or stubborn. You might be acting provocatively, pushing others’ buttons as well, perhaps to see what kind of effect or hold you have on them. This inclination gets stronger as the day advances, and both bodies head toward a confrontation with Pluto in your sign. It may be all too easy to take a different viewpoint as a personal affront. It can be a good idea to channel extra energy into productive activities. However, in some cases, disagreement or conflict may be just what a relationship needs right now, revealing important buried issues that could do with some addressing.

AQUARIUS

You could feel incensed and ready to take care of challenging problems today and tomorrow, dear Aquarius, with Mercury and Mars aligning in your work and health sector. Or, you may be excited about becoming more efficient, skilled, or organized. Even so, you could feel that others are in your way, blocking your path, or overbearing or controlling. It may be best to avoid taking on too much or working yourself up too much over small flaws and problems. Conversations can heat up quickly, but they can also pull up buried difficulties and issues that may need your attention. What emerges now can be revealing, perhaps showing you hidden desires. The pace can pick up surrounding work or daily routines now, and others may not be working quite as quickly as you are, or contributing as much. Ideally, this is an active day for tending to practical affairs with enthusiasm.

PISCES

The urge to express yourself can be intense today, dear Pisces. The tendency is to make quick and sharp decisions, particularly concerning love relationships, entertainment, pleasure, dating, creativity, and children. Mental excitement may cross the line into irritation or aggravation, however, particularly as the day advances. Try to tap into your courage to make a move rather than give in to impulsive communications or steps. You might want to avoid situations where people are trying to one-up you or attempting to get the upper hand since there can be a lot of this today and tomorrow. Friendships can be a touchy area. There might be a rude awakening, but something that clears your mind as to where you stand, which allows you to make better plans.

How to chant Hare Krsna

Pundit Roshan Singh (Rohininandan das)

How to chant on beads

Bhakti yoga practice includes chanting the Hare Krishna mantra softly to oneself. This is called japa.

While chanting, you’ll keep the sacred japa beads in a bead bag to keep them clean and off the floor. One side of the bag is large enough to insert your hand. Your index finger comes out of the smaller hole on the other side, to help you hold on to the bag. Place your beads in the bag, and you’re ready to go.

Chanting “Rounds”

Bhakti yoga practitioners decide on a minimum number of mantras they want to chant each day. The main purpose of the beads is to keep track of the number of mantras chanted. Fingering the beads also engages your sense of touch and helps to focus your mind on the activity of chanting.

There are 108 beads and one larger bead, known as the head bead, or Krishna bead. Begin with the bead next to the Krishna bead. Gently roll the bead between the thumb and middle finger of your right hand while chanting:

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare
Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare

Then move forward to the next bead (pulling the bead towards you, into your hand) and repeat the mantra.

In this way, continue chanting on each of the 108 beads in the strand until you again reach the Krishna bead. This is known as one round of japa and usually takes from six to ten minutes.

It is beneficial to chant the Pancha-tattva mantra before beginning your japa meditation. Many people like to chant it before each round. This is a prayer to Krishna’s most merciful avatar, Lord Chaitanya and His associates, to help us become ecstatic and avoid offenses while chanting.

sri-krishna-chaitanya prabhu-nityananda
sri-advaita gadadhara
srivasadi-gaura-bhakta-vrinda

“I offer my obeisances to Sri Krishna Chaitanya, Prabhu Nityananda, Sri Advaita, Gadadhara, Srivasa and all others in the line of devotion.”

If you are going to chant more than one round of japa, then, without chanting on the Krishna bead, turn the strand around and begin the next round. (Continue pulling beads towards you, as before. Watch our helpful demonstration video: How to Practice Japa Mantra Meditation.)

If you have a string of counter beads tied to your bead bag, you can keep track of the number of rounds you have chanted by moving one counter bead for each round.

Chant clearly and try to hear the holy names with attention. Some chanters find that looking at the mantra or a picture of Krishna helps them concentrate. If that works for you, that’s fine. But remember that the goal is attentive hearing.
