June 2012 Gemini Horoscope

Opportunity knocks

Every twelve years, expansive Jupiter visits your sign for a year, bearing good news and initiating another cycle of opportunity. Your self-confidence soars as this gassy giant begins pumping up your 1st House of Self on June 11. But this month becomes a dance between optimistic hopes and unrealistic dreams, because Jupiter slowly moves toward a disquieting square with mythical Neptune that culminates on June 25, challenging you to keep your expectations in perspective.

Meanwhile, an unexpected clash over money could erupt between you and your friends or associates when volatile Uranus in your 11th House of Groups squares relentless Pluto in your 8th House of Shared Resources on June 24. Someone may exert power over you through manipulative behavior, such as withholding money or love, precipitating unexpected events that are beyond your control. Fortunately, this is only the opening volley; you have time to figure out how to handle the next round of conflict, as the Uranus-Pluto square recurs seven times through March 16, 2015.

A business or personal relationship brings excitement into your life on June 4, when the Sagittarius Full Moon Eclipse falls in your 7th House of Partnerships. Step back and contemplate your feelings when your key planet, Mercury, slips out of your sign and into introspective Cancer on June 7.

The Gemini New Moon on June 19 is your time to make a fresh start, yet it's so close to the Summer Solstice on June 20 that you may lack objectivity as you move closer to the great changes ahead. Luckily, you are able to express yourself more decisively when cerebral Mercury enters lively Leo and your 3rd House of Information on June 25.

Keep in Mind this Month
This is a bellwether month that can give you a glimpse of the dynamic landscape you'll be traversing over the next few years.

Key Dates for Gemini

June 3-5: Fairy Tale Ending
You are finally ready to settle down and take yourself seriously when thoughtful Mercury forms a productive trine to sobering Saturn on June 3. However, it's nearly impossible to maintain a rational approach to your responsibilities while also responding to the stresses of a personal relationship. The adventurous Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse on June 4 distracts you with visions of distant horizons. But its alignment with retrograde Venus in flirtatious Gemini and square to aggressive Mars can turn the heat up on love too much and too fast unless you pay close attention to your emotions. Fortunately, Venus conjoins the Sun on June 5, indicating a pleasant outcome to a challenging series of events.

June 27-29: Stormy Weather
Changes are coming fast and furious now. If you made good use of Venus's retrograde period -- it began on May 15 -- her direct turn on June 27 begins a process that can bring greater freedom of expression and financial rewards for your efforts. But first you must navigate through the troubled waters stirred by the Sun's opposition to secretive Pluto and square to rebellious Uranus on June 29. Remember, issues around money, control and personal relationships may be overwhelming you in the moment, but they're tied to longer-lasting cycles that will continue to have significant impact.
