Aries Horoscope: June 2013
Back to Basics
The buzz you're feeling when June begins is likely to have you moving in many directions. Your ruling planet, Mars, along with the Sun in jumpy Gemini, incite you to flit restlessly from one activity to another. There's a subtle shift toward a more contemplative mood when lovely Venus enters caring Cancer and your 4th House of Home and Family on June 2. Nostalgia and domestic concerns pull on your heartstrings, leaving you more vulnerable.
The jittery Gemini New Moon on June 8 falls in your 3rd House of Communication, opening your mind to diverse people and subjects while increasing your distractions. On June 11, a subtle stabilizing force is the second of three trines between conscientious Saturn and idealistic Neptune that occurred on October 10, 2012, and will recur on July 19. Listen to an experienced individual whose hard-nosed pragmatism might help you make a dream come true.
Security is a top priority when the Sun shifts into protective Cancer on June 21, marking the Summer Solstice in your 4th House of Roots. Advancing your interests cautiously feels painfully ineffective, but it's healthier than forcing issues right now in your personal or professional life. The aspiring Capricorn Full Moon in your 10th House of Career on June 23 could trigger a work-related crisis, yet is meant to highlight your long-term goals and push you to recognize the need for self-discipline.
Lucky Jupiter's move into nurturing Cancer on June 25 enriches your family life and encourages psychological development in the year ahead. However, it may take time to reach a deeper understanding of your desires, especially with fact-based Mercury turning retrograde on June 26. You'll need to do some backtracking before you are free to forge ahead.
Keep in Mind this Month
You can't control what happens in the world, but you do have many options about how you manage your emotions. Attending to your inner needs makes everything else easier to handle.
Key Dates for Aries
SUPER NOVA DAYS
June 7-8: Scenic Detour
You might drift off course on June 7, when a fuzzy Mars-Neptune square favors fantasy and sacrifice over reason and ambition. Acting with compassion and tapping into your imagination are desirable expressions of this tender transit. Although the antsy Gemini New Moon on June 8 says go, a balky quincunx between forward-moving Mars and stand-still Saturn can block your progress. The point is not to stop completely, but to redirect your efforts. If you encounter resistance, don't continue to push ahead or get bogged down in a battle. Navigating around (or adjusting your methods and expectations) is actually the most efficient way to get where you want to go.
June 27-28: All the World's Your Stage
Stylish Venus sashays into loud Leo and your 5th House of Romance on June 27, lifting your spirits and raising your personal profile. Your playful spirit and warmhearted generosity make you and whatever you propose more appealing. However, recognizing the limits of others is essential for avoiding stress when Mars tangles with authoritative Saturn on June 28.
