June/July 2011 Horoscopes

  • Aquarius

    Jan 20—Feb 18

    (January 20—February 18)
    With no major cosmic occurrences in your sign, you’ve got a month totally free of cosmic drama. And since refined Aquarians hardly stir up issues, it’s smooth sailing till July. The only thing that could dash you against the rocks? Falling prey to a not-so-nice coworker’s scheme around the 16th. Your loyalty is what your pals like about you—and what your enemies love. Your middle name this month? Overly cautious. (Note: Be especially careful around Leos.)

  • Aries

    March 21—April 19

    (January 20—February 18)
    In June, you get many repeat visits from Uranus, the planet of truth and light. From the 4th-5th, the 17th-21st and the 27th-29th, you’ll be guided by an extreme emphasis on authenticity. You may find yourself questioning even your most pure-hearted friends—and for good reason. Your senses are heightened, especially your ability to sniff out lies. If you smell something strange now, it probably is a rat. And since life isn’t a Pixar film, for god’s sake don’t ask it to cook for you!

  • Cancer

    June 21—July 22

    (June 21—July 22)
    The sun appears to stand still in the sky and we enjoy the longest day and shortest night of the year during the summer solstice on the 21st. This unfurls in your sign, so while all your pals will feel an extra jolt of cosmic energy, you may feel a bit drained. There’s a major upheaval of relationships and water ahead, so if you and your partner had a day at the beach planned on the 22nd, go ahead and stick to your backyard. In fact, don’t even turn on the sprinklers.

  • Capricorn

    Dec 22—Jan 19

    (December 22—January 19)
    Pluto is all about power—both finding your own and struggling with/against it. So when the former planet enters from the 27th-29th, you may find yourself either sitting on a throne...or tiptoeing around someone else’s. How this cosmic court plays out is entirely up to you. Standing up for yourself at the beginning of the month will set the tone for all of June. The higher you hold your head, the harder it is for someone to knock off your crown.

  • Gemini

    May 21—June 20

    (May 21—June 20)
    The second eclipse this year is a partial solar eclipse in your sign on June 1st. An eclipse signals a period of dramatic change and a brand new beginning. But since you’re the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen of the cosmos (ie: the twin sign), you get a double dose of cosmic craziness. With your communication sector thrown out of whack, you’ll come down with a raging case of foot-in-mouthitis. Let’s put it this way: When the going gets tough, the tough should just keep its well-meaning lips zipped.

  • Leo

    July 23—Aug 22

    (July 23—August 22)
    According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the full moon in June is called the Full Strawberry Moon. And of course there’s a very scientific reason for that—because the man in the moon likes some fruit with his cheese. But in all honesty, on the 15th, life will suddenly taste very sweet. Your friendships are ripe, your relationships are in season and there’s plenty of juicy gossip at work. Just be sure to check your teeth for seeds.

  • Libra

    Sept 23—Oct 22

    (September 23—October 22)
    Saturn re-enters on the 12th for the first time since January. And just like Charlie Sheen, it’s all about winning. Saturn wants to help you be a better friend, a harder worker and a person who is truly ready for a lasting relationship (uh, so not like Charlie Sheen). For singles, this is an incredibly exciting time. You’re exuding confidence, and that’s what’s turning all the heads. Every once in a while, don’t forget to turn yours...and wink.

  • Pices

    Feb 19—March 20

    (February 19—March 20)
    When Neptune is retrograde in Pisces on the 3rd, it makes you feel as though all your dreams are realities. That’s not necessarily bad (unless you dream of illegal or dangerous things). But it will be hard not to fall victim to disappointment when things don’t go your way at work or when you end up on the wrong side of an argument around the 8th. It’s ok to visit Fantasyland once in a while...but you can’t live there. (And we wouldn’t know where to send your copy of Pulse!)

  • Sagittarius

    Nov 22—Dec 21

    (November 22—December 21)
    When the moon travels into the Earth’s umbra (ella-ella) on the 15th, a total lunar eclipse occurs. You may as well call it 007 eclipse, ‘cause it wants your life shaken, not stirred. Relationships won’t necessarily explode, but they could very easily fizz up and bubble over if you don’t keep an eye on them. If you’ve been minding yours, it will grow incredibly strong around the 18th, and you and your partner will form an even deeper and more lasting bond…James Bond.

  • Scorpio

    Oct 23—Nov 21

    (October 23—November 21)
    The new moon (on the 1st) isn’t in your sign. But you know what? You don’t need it! Though you don’t look any different, you’ve been going through an incredible transformation since last June. You’re less combative and more compassionate. And since others feel it too, old friends have been coming out of the woodwork and you’re at a 10 on the attention-o-meter. Now that you’ve got a new head on your shoulders, just be sure it doesn’t get too big.

  • Taurus

    April 20—May 20

    (April 20—May 20)
    When Jupiter’s in Taurus, it’s like the cosmos hands the world a cold margarita and totally mellows it out. You’re already one of the most relaxed signs, so on the 4th and the 8th, you reach new levels of chill. But just because you’re slowing down doesn’t mean your mind’s gone to molasses. With Jupiter around, you’ll finally be able to make a decision that’s been plaguing you. (And yes, it’s a bit more complex than “to salt or not to salt?”)

  • Virgo

    Aug 23—Sept 22

    (August 23—September 22)
    Lately you’ve felt like a puzzle with a few lost corners. You can thank the partial solar eclipse on the 1st for this strange sense of “without.” When the sun hides from view, so too does its warmth and energy. Since Virgos are driven by a desire to serve others, the sun’s absence screws with your 7th house of partnerships the most. Focus on an important relationship and then look under the couch in the living room. There’s the piece you’ve been missing!
