Taurus Horoscope: June 2013
Batten Down the Hatches
Two counteractive cosmic forces influence you this month. The first comes from the long-lasting effects of the Uranus-Pluto square that was exact on May 20 and will recur on November 1. This dynamic pattern is a karmic wake-up call that can shatter your deepest convictions and alter the overall direction of your life. Although this metamorphosis will take years to complete, Mercury, Venus and the Sun each has a turn to oppose Pluto and square Uranus now, dramatically increasing the pressure for change.
On June 7, analytical Mercury stirs the stew as you worry about how much you have on your plate. On June 11-12, it's resourceful Venus' turn to stimulate your desire for comfort and safety in the midst of stormy seas.
The second cosmic force is a much-appreciated stabilizing effect you can feel all month from reliable Saturn's trine to magical Neptune, which is exact on June 11 and July 19. You know just what to do to achieve your dreams when your ruling planet, Venus, forms a graceful Grand Water Trine with Saturn and Neptune on June 7.
The clever Gemini New Moon on June 8 falls in your 2nd House of Self-Worth, enabling you to enjoy yourself with pleasurable distractions. Then, on June 21, the Sun's shift into self-protective Cancer marks the Summer Solstice, when your daily activities normally favor home and family.
But the Capricorn Full Moon on June 23 joins Pluto and squares Uranus, reactivating persistent problems that make it difficult for you to relax and find peace of mind. Fortunately, opportunity knocks close to home when Jupiter enters nurturing Cancer and your busy 3rd House of Communication on June 25.
Keep in Mind this Month
As the landscape changes all around you, rely on your inner strength to resist getting swept away by dramatic tides.
Key Dates for Taurus
SUPER NOVA DAYS
June 7-8: Sail Away
A gentle Venus-Neptune trine arouses romantic feelings or creative inspirations that can feel like a dream. But solid Saturn's trine to Venus supplies concrete support and structure to make these feelings last. Nevertheless, worries pull you into deep waters where you must face your fears as negotiator Mercury opposes shadowy Pluto. But Mercury's square to unconventional Uranus on June 8, along with the changeable Gemini New Moon, offers you a radical solution to a problem that has been bothering you, allowing you to move on with certainty.
June 26-27: Don't Sweat the Small Stuff
Mercury Retrograde in your 3rd House of Immediate Environment on June 26 heralds delays and misunderstandings during the next three weeks. Still, you can trust your instincts when dealing with others because the Sun trines sensible Saturn and psychic Neptune, making it unlikely that you will make a misstep. Sweet Venus pirouettes into showy Leo on June 27, encouraging you to be more open when sharing your love with those close to you.
