Your Monthly Horoscope for June 2016
 by Victoria Fugit 

The new moon occurs on June 4th and the full moon on June 20th. Jupiter opposes Neptune and squares Saturn, while Saturn squares both Jupiter and Neptune and opposes the new Moon, Sun and Venus all in Taurus. Translation – June is a month of release, revolution, scandal, secrets-revealed, confusion, self-delusion, and ambiguity and in general “say what?”

In a more positive perspective, for those old enough to remember, it’s a bit like an Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein movie, full of crazy mistakes, miscommunications, delusional people, making nonsensical remarks that confuse and muddle situations, new, scandalous revelations, a crumbling of plans and structure and evil people bent on the destruction of our heroes.

If we actually took one of their movies seriously the frustration, fear, confusion and general irrationality would muddle our brains and confuse our priorities and beliefs. But we don’t – we laugh – at the delusion, inanity, insanity and all the near misses, near tragedies and crazy escapes. This is a metaphor for how to handle the next few weeks – with as much humor as possible.

The full Moon on the 20th falls on the Summer Solstice with Mercury opposed to Saturn. This can cause delays or breakdown in communications, or force clarity concerning a true state of affairs. Neptune opposes Jupiter suggesting confusion or lies around economic matters or health issues -- or a greater spiritual approach to values and priorities. There is also a quincunx between Mars and Uranus which could cause a rift with allies or the sudden acknowledgement that a constant state of war doesn’t work. It could also bring concerns around health issues.

Overall, ignore the crazed, focus on your own life.Release anything that wants to go. If your life story isn’t playing out as you want it, get a new script writer – that would be you. This is actually a great time for editing or re-writing your life.

Aries Astrological Symbol
Aries – Your ruler, Mars, is opposing Mercury, so don’t make any rash or impulsive financial moves. The new Moon, Venus and the Sun fall in your house of communication but are opposed by Saturn. So you may find communication difficult or confusing with neighbors or siblings. With Pluto and Uranus still square your Sun, wait until after the 20th to express your views, work out contracts, or deal with any sticky situations.
Taurus Astrological Symbol
Taurus – You have a lot of momentum this month, Taurus. A grand trine of Mercury, Jupiter and Pluto boosts new ideas, exciting concepts around health and new concepts of learning. Make sure your friendships are formed on like values and lifestyles. You may discover that what you thought was, wasn’t. Roll with disappointment and realize that Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Gemini Astrological Sy
Gemini – New Moon with Venus in your first house has you wanting renewal, pleasure, love and a bit of adventure. Saturn in your house of relationships may have your partner clipping your tail feathers, however. Making a permanent change in your living situation right now may not lead where you want to go. Reassess why you want to be radical in your new choices.

Cancer Astrological Symbol
Cancer – Jupiter gives you optimism and Neptune, inspiration and creative imagination. Mars enters to bestow energy, but cautions against expecting the results to come in this month. You can plant great seeds, but allow them to grow to full flower. The strength and stability you gained from dealing with Uranus and Pluto squaring your Sun can now be used to accomplish whatever you may want.
Leo Astrological Sign
Leo – An old flame may pop up in your life unexpectedly. They could bring joy and enthusiasm as well as a new outlook on life. Pay attention to fire and sharp objects around the house, as Mars in your 4th house suggests possible accidents. Jupiter in your house of money in good aspect to Pluto (Lord of the Underworld and therefore Lord of Money) could bring gains through real estate.
Virgo Astrological Symbol
Virgo – Virgo is a mutable sign. It has the ability to make sweeping internal changes without as much angst as other Sun signs might experience. The Universe is making a call for change, not really change so much, as starting to know and grow into who and what you have the potential of being. Jupiter expands you, Saturn stabilizes you and Neptune enables you to re-imagine yourself. Play big.

libra Astrological Symbol
Libra – You and your partner may be up for long road trips in early June. Your partner may be a little erratic or impulsive right now, but good company for travel. With Mars in Scorpio, save for unexpected expenses and avoid courts and contracts. Too much sugar may play a part in unresolved health concerns. Find the sweetness elsewhere in your life.

Scorpio Astrological Sign
Scorpio – Both the new and the full Moon fall across your chart from the 2nd to the 8th houses. The new Moon may bring offers of monetary relationships, such as going into business together, taking out a loan, even getting your credit limit raised. However, with Saturn in your 2nd house of money now, it may be better not to take on any more debt, no matter how good the return might seem. Wait until fall.
Sagittarius Astrological Sign
Sagittarius – If you are a mid-December Sag, you are in the crosshairs of the new Moon square of Jupiter and Neptune with Saturn on your Sun. If you stay balanced physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, you can, through clarity, focus and self-discipline be well on your way to achieving your desires this Fall. Use Saturn for discipline, Neptune for inspiration and Jupiter for expansion. Or, on the other side of the coin, use Saturn for depression and doubt, Neptune for confusion and fatigue and Jupiter for frustration.
Capricorn Astrological Symbol
Capricorn – Travel, a long lost goal or relationship, creative writing skills are all possibilities for you this month. Your work or career brings satisfaction and even joy, since Cappies so enjoy the challenge of work they love. Working with the energies of Uranus and Pluto has or will give you a deep inner strength to find your path and thrive in the next few years.

Aquarius Astrological Symbol
Aquarius – Retrograde Mars in your 10th house of business and career can cause a slowdown of progress in your work. This could be a welcome relief from the fast pace Mars had been setting or it could cause frustration with two steps forward slide back three. The new Moon, Sun and Venus are in your 5th house of love, children and pleasure. Positive news about children or discovering new things in life that you love or bring pleasure could make June a good month for you. The latter part of the month might also be a good time to begin a new health routine.

Pisces Astrological Symbol
Pisces – Home and family are emphasized this month. You could be tapped for more responsibility at work or find yourself in a position of trust and left to work with little or no overseeing. Partnerships may demand more of you than you have the ability to give. Make sure you are communicating what is important to you, not just keeping quiet to keep the peace.


About Victoria: The passion I have for Astrology began when I was twenty-four. I had been traveling in Europe for months and was becoming more and more curious about the letters my mom was sending me. They were waiting for me in each city or town I went to and it was as if she had a spy following me. She seemed to know my every move. Then she started to give me advice about what was coming up and what to watch out for. Coming home, I was horrified to learn that both she and my dad (LT. Colonel in the Air Force) were involved in Astrology. I asked them how two well-educated and intelligent people could possibly believe a superstitious myth that was so lacking in any proof of its claims. My dad said he had no belief in it. It worked, so he used it, much like electricity – we don’t believe in it, don’t know exactly how it works, but are happy to turn on the lights with it.

So I set out to prove that they were deluded. After three years of study in San Francisco and taking a correspondence course from a school in England, I apologized.
Astrology has been part of my life ever since and has led to my involvement with researchers and teachers in the human potential movement, such as Jean Houston (Institute for Mind Research), Werner Erhardt (EST), Elmer Green (Duke University), Joe Kamiya (early researcher in bio-feedback), Swami Rama (Himalayan Institute) and others.

Sun sign astrology obviously doesn’t give the depth of knowledge available in a full reading. Each chart is unique, like snowflakes. But it’s fun and entertaining. Hope you get both from this column. You can get in touch with Victoria at 435-259-9417 or
