June 2012 Aries Horoscope

Point of no return

This is a month of dramatic transitions that foreshadow larger changes ahead. The farsighted Sagittarius Full Moon Eclipse on June 4 falls in your 9th House of Future Vision, shaking things up at work enough to cause you to rethink your long-term plans.

Although this eclipse reveals tensions on the job, the real pressure comes from a shocking square between rebellious Uranus in your 1st House of Self and powerful Pluto in your 10th House of Public Responsibility, which is exact on June 24. This is the first of seven such alignments that recur through 2015, in a series that's bound to pit your need for freedom of personal expression against the demands of the world.

Fortunately, Jupiter begins its yearlong visit to your 3rd House of Communication on June 11, empowering your words with a sense of purpose so others will take you more seriously. Although your friends may encourage you to explore a wide variety of options, you must focus your attention where you have the most impact instead of trying to change things beyond your control.

Information is power on June 19, when the curious Gemini New Moon plants a seed of hope in your 3rd House of Data Collection. But you may not have enough time to assimilate what you already know before the Summer Solstice on June 20, when the Sun slips into security-conscious Cancer and you withdraw into the safety and familiarity of your personal life.

You could lose track of what's important when indulgent Jupiter squares misleading Neptune on June 25. Effusive Mercury enters your 5th House of Self-Expression on the same day, so beware going overboard talking about yourself.

Keep in Mind this Month
Although you can count on support from your family and friends, your final choices must be your own.

Key Dates for Aries

SUPER NOVA DAYS
June 3-7: Turbulence Ahead
You're already in a serious frame of mind on June 3, when thoughtful Mercury trines solemn Saturn. The Full Moon Eclipse in philosophical Sagittarius on June 4 deepens your contemplative mood as you wonder whether or not you are on the right path. Unfortunately, glamorous Venus squares reckless Mars in the 6th House of Details, highlighting your annoyance with the routine of your job. Although you might try to smooth over the rough spots when Venus joins the Sun on June 5, anger management may be in order as the Sun squares Mars on June 7. Even if you use your extra energy constructively, Mercury's entry into passive Cancer challenges you to express your feelings without stirring up unnecessary conflict.

June 19-21: Learning to Fly
Your life is more unstable than you realize on June 19, when the flighty Gemini New Moon scatters your attention prior to mental Mercury's run-in with dogmatic Saturn the next day. Although the Sun's entry into tenacious Cancer blesses you with uncharacteristic patience, your nervous system is also stimulated by an exciting sextile from sensual Venus to outrageous Uranus in your 1st House of Personality. Observe your extreme mood swings instead of acting on any one impulse. Your emotions should settle down on June 21, when Mercury's cooperative sextile to Mars enables you to successfully walk your talk.
