With the Solstice, and increased Lunar powers, June is an exciting month for astrologers. But it's the end of this particular June that has caught this astrologer's eye. The Mercury-Mars conjunction links to Jupiter and Neptune and opposes Pluto. It speaks of powerful ideas leading to dramatic action... of our minds being free to help us embark on an inspiring journey. This would be compelling at any time but, in a Solstice month, possibilities begin to look more like certainties.

pisces Pisces

Your June Monthly Forecast: June is a very exciting time for Pisceans. Not only does the Mercury-Mars conjunction form a T-square focused on your traditional ruler Jupiter, but first it forms a harmonious trine with your modern ruler Neptune. That's the astrological equivalent of jumping on a bed - not only can it energise you and provide more than a little excitement, but should you stumble in your haste, there's a soft landing to catch any fall. This month, follow your ideas along whichever road they choose to take you along. Your heart will tell you when you've found your way.

scorpio Scorpio

Your June Monthly Forecast: Have I told you about the 'two wolves'? They often enter my thoughts when a sign's two ruling planets are in opposition. In Native American cultures, it's said that we all have two wolves battling within us. One represents hope and the other fear. It's said that the wolf who eventually wins is the one you have chosen to feed. But your two heavenly commanders symbolise strength, resilience and the ability to overcome adversity. These are the qualities available to you this month. But only if you choose to nourish them.

taurus Taurus

Your June Monthly Forecast: 'Where are you going to little brown mouse? Come and have tea in my log pile house!' says Snake to the rodent hero in Julia Donaldson's The Gruffalo. In this tale, the mouse invents a clever excuse and continues safely on his way. But, perhaps in your own story, you've found yourself waylaid by a less than ideal situation. Don't fear that your plans are scuppered. Your ruler's returning to your sign this month. The perfect reason to leave your difficulties behind, get on your way and reach your preferred destination, is forming as we squeak, er speak!

aquarius Aquarius

Your June Monthly Forecast: How clever are you? Events this month will prove that you're clever enough to understand that there's such a thing as being too clever. People who ask endless questions end up complicating simple matters and turning obvious decisions into tiresome debates. If we think too hard about any matter, we can confuse ourselves. As Venus conjuncts your modern ruler and the Full Moon conjuncts your traditional ruler, you'll be smart enough to see that there's already been enough discussion. The answer you're looking at is the right one. Trust it!

capricorn Capricorn

Your June Monthly Forecast: Regrets are often a product of insufficient amounts of time. Usually, with enough of this resource, we make the right decisions... we're able to ruminate, pontificate and deliberate to our heart's content. Any decisions we make are based on the careful consideration of all available evidence, so even if they lead to difficulty, we're assured they represent our best endeavours. When we're rushed we rely on instinct, and then we may come to wish we'd done things differently. This month, don't allow haste to become your master.

virgo Virgo

Your June Monthly Forecast: As I write your forecast, I'm listening to the sultry sounds of Marty O'Reilly. But he's not singing from the stereo, he's standing a few feet away from me, both guitar and audience in the palm of his hand. This may seem like a strange place to be writing your horoscope, but sometimes, I want to feel inspired, it helps to be in an inspiring setting. When we experience the possibilities of limitless imagination, we can abandon the doubts that curtail us. This month, to be your best, surround yourself with the best that others can offer.

leo Leo

Your June Monthly Forecast: Are you brave or foolish? Are you heroic or crazy? Actually, you're all these things rolled into one. All great success stories involve an element of blind luck! Those who steer clear of risk can never know the true taste of triumph. I'm really not trying to suggest that you ought to take wild gambles this month. You've already taken enough of these in recent weeks. But you can (and should) be less worried about how things will turn out. The Solstice is coming. June heralds the time to benefit from the positive steps you've been taking.
