Leo Horoscope: June 2013
Your awareness of worlds beyond this one grows this month with significant planetary activity in your 12th House of Spirituality. Magnetic Venus' shift into cuddly Cancer and this private part of your chart on June 2 attracts you to prayer, meditation and contemplation, which can quiet and comfort your heart. The nourishment of nature and the tranquility that comes from being less ambitious enable you to reduce your expectations of others and find a larger purpose and meaning in your life.
The Sun's entry into Cancer on June 21 is the Summer Solstice, which is another signal to turn inward and get away from it all. You may uncharacteristically long to be out of the spotlight on this introspective journey. Benevolent Jupiter's move into protective Cancer on June 25 for a yearlong stay in your soulful 12th House of Spirituality is like having an angel on your shoulder whispering words of wisdom and encouragement in your ear.
Commitment to your highest hopes can turn inspiration into reality with realistic Saturn's constructive trine to idealistic Neptune on June 11. This is the second of three aspects -- the first was October 10, 2012, and the last is on July 19. Saturn in Scorpio is deep in your ancestral 4th House of Home and Family, where addressing your greatest fears and desires can reduce the former and give shape to the latter.
Before then, on June 8, the scattered Gemini New Moon in your 11th House of Groups sows innumerable seeds of ideas with friends or colleagues, but don't allow others' schemes to distract you from your own dreams. The dutiful Capricorn Full Moon lands in your work-related 6th House on June 23, reminding you that patience and discipline pay long-term dividends.
Keep in Mind this Month
What you do out of sight of others will not attract attention, but it can fill your soul with joyful self-awareness that can serve you for the rest of your life.
Key Dates for Leo
June 7-8: Lost in Translation
Beware following a friend or colleague's misplaced idea on June 7, which features a slippery square between misdirected Mars and confusing Neptune. A perceptive Mercury-Pluto opposition should send up warning signals, but you may be thinking too narrowly to see the big picture. On June 8, an awkward quincunx between insistent Mars and stubborn Saturn could leave you stuck with someone else's dirty work. Either do the job with as much grace and efficiency as you can or just say no, because an intellectually unstable Mercury-Uranus square could trigger a verbal explosion that undercuts effective communication.
SUPER NOVA DAY
June 19: Open Heart, Open Mind
Optimism rises as a result of gaining support from colleagues, making new connections and finding more joyful ways to express yourself. The Sun, your creative ruling planet, joins farsighted Jupiter in your 11th House of Friends, Hopes and Wishes, inspiring a broader vision for a group. Your contribution to an organization can garner respect and cast you into a leadership position. It's easy to see that helping others, even humanity as a whole, is the best way to help yourself. The more you give, the more you get back in return.
