JUNE 2017 HOROSCOPES BY STILORAMA’S ASTROLOGER KENNY CORRIS

Sunday, June 11th, 2017

JUNE 2017 HOROSCOPES

Aries:     There is much work and preparation needed this month, since it is right now that the Sun ingresses and the winds of change are blowing. This is an ideal time to do some sensible research on removing unnecessary burdens that slow you down.

 

Taurus:    Venus is very deeply involved with the energies of Uranus and Jupiter. This brings about a sudden change of mind connected with an affair of your innermost soul. A change of heart balances your turbulent emotions and centres you in preparation for the next step.

 

Gemini:   Mercury takes conference with dreamy Pisces and a forward thinking Ceres. Whilst Mercury is there to ensure communication is certain and apt, Ceres is a governor of time, and signifies a rapid response needed; just when you are where you think you should be!

 

Cancer:   The Full Moon beckons you on to pastures new as you seem to be thinking that the grass may very well be greener on the other side. Change and new concepts are very much there for you on the current agenda, but you have to want them to make the difference.

 

Leo:   With the Sun touching on Mars anything is possible, but someone is standing in the way of what you really want to do right now. The Sun is blessed in the seventh house of Aries, where even magic is possible if you will just let it be. Hold back on emotions and see what comes!

 

Virgo:    Mercury ensures that you make the very best of things since it is high time that you bounced back into life once more. You may very well have been sorry for yourself and licking your wounds but it is high time to make amends by showing others what you are capable of.

 

Libra:   Venus sextiles with Uranus and it would seem as if you have opened a can of worms. So much of the recent past deserves nothing more than elimination and resolve. You may have learned your lesson the hard way but you are empowered and ready to make a difference.

 

Scorpio:    You are so able to put so much into a nearing plan or project seeming to have boundless energy when it is needed – However although you do have the power to succeed, always remember that you will be doing the lion’s share of the work that all this entails.

 

Sagittarius:   Beware of going too far in a situation which you will, in hindsight, figure wasn’t worth it. Your enthusiasm and intelligence has steered things along quite nicely, but you have been both indecisive and unsure, two elements that do not bode well with you.

 

Capricorn:   Much Sun energy recently, but you do still appear to be waiting for answers before you make a fresh start. Your sensitivity and inner self seems to be holding back as things just don’t appear to be adding up right just now. Stall for time right now because you can!

 

Aquarius:    With love entering in such a positive way it is sure that you are to be given the chance to show emotional energy in any way that you see fit. Love especially transcends the home and your immediate family, who have been so very understanding as of late.

 

Pisces:   An inspiring Mercury brings you some of the publicity that you need. You are, as always, multi-talented and an inspiration to others, whilst the inner you brings you conflict and insecurity, when you are so capable of achieving. You should know what you do!
