For All Signs: Many people will be taking a somber look at their relationship(s) this week. One of the things we must do to see something more clearly is to take a step backward, outside of the inner circle. From that vantage point it is easier to gain perspective on the dynamics at work within the relationship. We have a need to think through our primary relationships and determine what is necessary to make improvements. Blame may be tempting but it won’t be accurate or productive. Relationship issues usually have two sides. This could surface even in work relationships, so step “outside” the parameters of the situation and have a clear look.

Aries: Rise above the mundane situation and see the bigger picture of your relationship(s). Metaphorically we bring people into our lives to help teach us what we need to know. If the personality of another person irritates you, then there is something important to learn about yourself. Maybe there is a truth that you have been avoiding and this irksome person is present as a teacher .

Taurus: Read the lead paragraph because at this time it especially pertains to you. The crux of the stressor may be in the areas of shared resources. That includes time, money, or resources that you share with another or with the greater community. That could include money or social security, taxes, insurance and/or debts.

Gemini: You are likely making improvements in your home or property. You’ll be updating the old with something new and contemporary. Mercury, the ruler of communications, is involved so it may have to do with computing and microchips.

Cancer: (June 20 – July 21) Give special attention to unusual messages or to new people who enter your life during this time. A “teacher” crosses your path in the form of a person, a book, or the right message that will steer you in the next favorable direction.

Leo the Lion: Mars, the warrior, enters your sign this week and will be traveling with you for seven weeks. This energy is especially helpful in defining our boundaries. Periodically we need to examine who we are as well as who we are not. Often something is eliminated. In general, it represents an increase of your courage and physical strength.

Virgo: your ability to concentrate upon projects that require management of details is strong. Organizing files, closets and cabinets will clear the clutter from your mind. Fortunately, you are able to make mindful decisions. If information is needed, you can find it readily. The week favors education in practical skills.

Libra: You may encounter someone who wants to argue about a subject that has no end, i.e. religion or politics. Remember that what you think is not who you are. It is an opinion, only, and doesn’t deserve a battle to the death. Make note of any developments that seem meaningful and “supposed” to happen between you and another.

Scorpio: From now through early September, your attention will be drawn to career and life direction. Activity in your outer world picks up speed. Authorities and others may be challenging, so have your ducks in a row if you take initiatives. Use this time to improve your “product” or your presentation.

Sagittarius: Good news comes from a distance or perhaps on the internet. Activities involving the law, travel, the church, distant communications and/or publishing are favored. Personal relationships may be difficult for a short time this week. Check the lead paragraph.

Capricorn: A tenant or an employee may be challenging. It is annoying, but not the end of the world. You are coming upon a significant change next winter. Perhaps the events of this week will press you toward that shift. There may be a need to focus on matters of your body, especially related to teeth, skin and bones.

Aquarius: If you are stymied, don’t hesitate to consult a professional who is likely to have the information you need. Your partner may take on an uncharacteristic manner of self-assertion. He or she is not so likely to back down from a fight. Life will be generally more harmonious if you avoid the hot topics.

Pisces: You or someone else may want you to feel guilty because you are unable to make things better. Recognize that you are not the magician you would like to be and let go of the guilt. Whatever happens now, you are highly prone to think dark thoughts about yourself. This is passing. Let it go.
