June 2012 Aquarius Horoscope

Shuffling priorities

Your challenge this month is to balance your desire for fun in the moment with the need to keep a watchful eye on the future. A cluster of planets in your 5th House of Play can tempt you with immediate gratification, but the Sagittarius Full Moon Eclipse on June 4 galvanizes your aspirations in your 11th House of Long-Term Goals.

Its opposition to sweet-hearted Venus (retrograde in flirtatious Gemini until June 27) reveals what may be lacking in the romance department. The eclipse's square to warrior Mars in nitpicky Virgo provokes you to argue with others to make your position known. But you're likely to change your mind, especially when permissive Jupiter enters fickle Gemini and your spontaneous 5th House on June 11 for a one-year visit.

Meanwhile, you grow increasingly frustrated as the demands of your daily routine interfere with what you really want to do in your life, thanks to a long-lasting and intensifying square between unsettling Uranus and unrelenting Pluto. The first of seven Uranus-Pluto squares occurs on June 24 in a series that lasts until 2015, but its arrival is heralded on June 11 when Mercury squares Uranus and opposes Pluto.

Nevertheless, the indecisive Gemini New Moon on June 19 indicates that you might not be quite ready to face the large-scale changes ahead. On June 25, a square between the two most expansive planets, Jupiter and Neptune, widens your horizons and amplifies your imagination, which could confuse you about where you should be focusing your energy. Harnessing your creativity isn't easy, but if you can discipline your craft you could produce worthwhile results.

Keep in Mind this Month
There's nothing wrong with having a good time. Just make sure you're not avoiding serious issues that you should address now rather than later.

Key Dates for Aquarius

June 19-20: Work in Progress
Your position is fragile on June 19, with the New Moon in changeable Gemini. You can't go on expressing yourself in the same old way; it's time to pay more attention to improving your life than just accepting the status quo. The Summer Solstice on June 20, marked by the Sun's entry into self-protective Cancer and your 6th House of Daily Routines, motivates you to cultivate a healthier lifestyle. Yet you may not feel up to the task, for a doubting Mercury-Saturn square on June 20 reminds you of all the things you haven't finished. Fortunately, you're not ready to admit defeat, and you could even have some unconventional ideas up your sleeve as sly Venus sextiles brilliant Uranus in your 3rd House of Information.

SUPER NOVA DAYS
June 24-29: The Power of Now
If you feel like you've been running in place at work or stuck in an old relationship pattern, now is the time to get yourself back on a productive path. The Uranus-Pluto square on June 24 and the Jupiter-Neptune square on June 25 both stir the waters of change; then the direct turns of Saturn on June 25 and Venus on June 27 set you into forward motion. However, you may need to fight to advance your interests if your agenda conflicts with someone else's plans on June 29, when the Sun opposes evolutionary Pluto and squares catalytic Uranus.
