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. Read more

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. Read more

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! Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Gemini

Your June Monthly Forecast: When cartoonists depict someone having a brilliant idea, they draw them with a light-bulb above their head. It's a bit of a cliche but it gets the point across. Sometimes, life's like this. In a sudden moment of understanding, restless confusion gives way to joyous clarity. Now, as your ruler Mercury passes through your sign, what do you think I want to predict is in store for you this month? How big and bright is the realisation that you're about to arrive at? So big that when it dawns on you you may feel like you need to wear sunglasses. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Cancer

Your June Monthly Forecast: June brings the Solstice, the moment the Sun enters your sign. I've spoken before about how the Solstice is like the Sun's birthday and that, like the Queen, it has two. Its return to Cancer means there's a third birthday to celebrate soon - yours! Your Solar return also heralds the annual New Moon in its own sign. All this adds up to a month of positive new beginnings and exciting renewal. It's time to put into practice the ideals you're emotionally tied to, yet have been powerless to impose. Live life wholeheartedly, and start as you mean to go on. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

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! Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Aries

Your June Monthly Forecast: How can any of us tell whether we're really being wise or foolish? We may imagine that we'd be foolish if we didn't strive to be wise. But can any of us ever really say what represents true wisdom? And if we can't be sure of the answer to that, how can it possibly be wise to seek wisdom? What if we allow ourselves to do something silly and it turns out to have been eminently sensible? Yet, as Mercury conjuncts your ruler in T-square with Jupiter, one thing's for sure this month: you'd be most unwise to think of yourself as foolish! Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Sagittarius

Your June Monthly Forecast: Various traditions tell us different stories about how the world was made. But, no matter how deep you dig, you'll never find the answer to the most important mystery of creation. On the day of the 'big bang' - or the summoning of the light - or the awakening of the spirits, what was the Supreme Being wearing? We don't know! And if we don't know that, how can we be sure of anything else? It may feel as if the month of June is asking you a similarly unanswerable question. Don't waste any precious time trying to answer it. Let it be. Read more

HOROSCOPES BY JONATHAN CAINER

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. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

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. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

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. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

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. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Libra

Your June Monthly Forecast: What do we need to find our way through a moral maze? A moral compass. When do compasses give false readings? When they're close to a powerful source of magnetism. Then the pointer swings emphatically towards a false signal. But it doesn't tell us what it's doing. We march forward, confident that we're heading north, whilst all the time a precious principle is heading south! This month, there's a Full Moon conjunct Saturn, just as Jupiter turns direct in your sign. You'll be fine, as long as you keep checking your direction. Read more

HOROSCOPES BY JONATHAN CAINER

He's making a list, He's checking it twice, He's gonna find out who's naughty or nice. Solstice Claus is coming to town. OK, maybe I'm getting into the holiday spirit of the wrong Solstice. But given that this Solstice occurs at the same time as a Sun-Mercury conjunction, we may all find ourselves better at list-making and getting things organised than we've been in a while. Not only that but, with the rest of this week's encouraging aspects, we're unlikely to be disappointed by what appears under our tree. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Capricorn

Your Week Ahead: If there's something you can't have, maybe you don't need it. The Solstice marks the return of the Sun to your opposite sign and is a strong suggestion that you're being well taken care of by a kindly cosmos. Not only are the planets well disposed towards you, but people (who tend to act as agents of the cosmos) are inspired to assist with your most important endeavours. Don't underestimate your ability to charm the birds from the trees, knock the socks off a stranger... or perfect a solution out of a seemingly daunting difficulty.Your Week Ahead - Love Focus: Kahlil Gibran was Jonathan's favourite philosopher and poet. He loved Gibran's observation that faraway friends can somehow be much nearer than friends at hand. Similarly, a mountain might be clearer to someone in a valley than a person attempting to climb it. He was effectively saying absence makes the heart grow fonder, and that standing back can be the best way to discover what's truly good. The Solstice brings you precious perspective, just in time to make a difference. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Cancer

Your Week Ahead: A few weeks ago, you were twiddling your thumbs. Now, with Mars in your sign, you're able to use them to grip tightly to the handlebar of life's motorcycle, and hare down straights, and race round bends. You could break records for speed and efficiency as you make things happen, and deal with things that other people have made happen - which need to be put right! You've a lot on your plate but you can absorb and digest every last bit of it. As long as you take one step at a time. With the Solstice arriving, those are giant steps.Your Week Ahead - Love Focus: When we have to fill our time while waiting for something to take place, we often have to find a pastime to calm our nerves. If we are too good at taking our mind away from a hope, we might discover we're happy with whatever it was we decided to do instead. Whether you respond to this week's key development with the words, 'better late than never' or 'it's too late now' you need to know that, as the Sun and Mercury converge, just ahead of the New Moon in your sign, finally, things are really moving on! Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Scorpio

Your Week Ahead: There are times when we should give thanks for our problems. We should look at them, look at the trouble they've led us into, look at the steps we've been forced to take to get ourselves out of that trouble, and then recognise that we might never have wound up being so smart if we hadn't first been so dumb. Forget, this week, how or why a situation came about. Forget too, your feelings about whether it's been bad or good. The Solstice brings the chance to just look at what it now has the potential to offer you. Be glad of that.Your Week Ahead - Love Focus: Venus has been opposite your sign for some while. Have you felt the benefit? Tradition tells us that you should be starting to feel more love, reassurance, comfort and inspiration from other people. Your sense of other people's generosity ought to improve too. Life doesn't always have to be a struggle. We are not obliged to keep wrestling with difficult emotions. Our lives can be easy, at least for a while, every so often. Someone genuinely wants to make life easier for you now. Feel free to let them. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Aries

Your Week Ahead: When comedy writers look for an easy gag, they get their central character to declare, 'You won't find me doing this ever again.' Then, in the very next scene, we see them contravening their vow. So much for their self-control - or their luck! It's funny when we observe this happening to someone else, less amusing when it happens to us. But, as your ruler links creatively to Uranus ahead of the Solstice, if you find yourself back where you once said you'd never go again, it may be something to smile about, rather than cry over.Your Week Ahead - Love Focus: 'Forget that boy and find another?' If only the characters in West Side Story had worried less about gangland feuds, the whole sorry story could have been avoided. But what would have done for entertainment? We like a bit of drama. We like it all the better if we know that it isn't real. It is when we fear that we can't turn it off or make it stop that it all gets scary. Perhaps something in your life seems to be spiralling out of control? Don't add fuel to a fire, and trust what's in your heart. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Taurus

Your Week Ahead: The trouble with a 'sense of security' is that we can never have one that's strong or deep enough. Even if we buy the best burglar alarm in the world, we'll still have a problem. What if someone sets out to steal it? As with physical protection, so with our emotional defence mechanisms. The more we try to protect ourselves, the more we find ourselves becoming vulnerable. One of the best ways to guard against unwelcome intrusion is to maintain a high level of openness. Be trusting as much as you dare this week.Your Week Ahead - Love Focus: In The Rime of the Ancient Mariner the poor sailors are surrounded by water but unable to drink it. We can sometimes sense frustration of this kind when we encounter relationship trouble. In theory, we've got the thing we want, it just isn't the way we want it to be. With Venus in your sign it may sometimes seem to you as if you're, 'so near, yet so far', from something that could be so ideal. Yet Venus' encouraging link to Neptune will provide a glimpse of what it can become. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Libra

Your Week Ahead: Nobody can do the impossible! But what about the 'almost impossible'? Well, those things aren't actually impossible. They may be tricky. They may take luck, effort and ingenuity. But how do you know that something's impossible until, or unless you try? Don't risk everything on a crazy, far-fetched scheme - and if you perceive that it poses potential danger, keep well away from it. But, if the risk's small and the potential reward is big, with Venus encouraged by dreamy Neptune, ahead of the Solstice, at least give it a try.Your Week Ahead - Love Focus: You have changed something that has long been wrong. You allowed it to remain so because you could see no easy fix. Now, you have taken action, but are you having second thoughts? The time to worry about being unable to turn back is before you cast off your mooring ropes. You've taken a brave step; now see it through. Your journey takes you to an experience you will be glad you allowed yourself to have. There's nothing to fear this solstice - and so much you can achieve. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Gemini

Your Week Ahead: Jonathan told a story about a friend who hated washing dishes. She'd do all she could to avoid it. One day, he noticed that her sink wasn't overflowing with the usual crockery. He asked 'Did you get help?' She said proudly, 'No. I did it!', and explained 'I realised that I loathed dirty dishes, even more than I disliked cleaning them.' With your ruler opposite Saturn, a similar approach can be applied to a problem you're facing. Ask yourself which may be the lesser of two evils. You might enjoy what comes out in the wash.Your Week Ahead - Love Focus: Why should your love life ever bring you something other than what you want? Unless, that is, one part of you really wants it to bring you something that another part of you doesn't want? Might some aspect of your heart be crying out for change? Might it be hoping for an outcome that the more down-to-earth part of you is determined to resist? If you seriously, want things to stay under control, you will have to fight hard for it. This week comes the clarity you need to get what you want. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Aquarius

Your Week Ahead: The heart is always quicker than the head. No matter how sharp our minds, they trail behind our gut reactions like tortoises following hares. And, because they go so much more slowly, they have more time to mull things over, question instinctive responses and come up with complicated caveats to explain what ought to be obvious. You can get into a long discussion now about the relative merits of an idea or a suggestion. But passionate Mars suggests that if you really want to make progress, don't ignore what you feel.Your Week Ahead - Love Focus: 'Live for the moment, you never know what's coming round the corner, we'll have to go sometime.' New Age gurus would agree with this lyric from The Sherlocks. Be in the here and now. Live for today. Have difficulties in your love life stemmed from a tendency to worry too much about how things will be in the future? Pay such ideas less attention. If you can apply the same zeal to today's circumstances as you do to tomorrow's then everything that seems complex may start to seem simpler. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Virgo

Your Week Ahead: What pleases Pat may anger Alex. What makes Jo jolly may sadden Sam. It isn't easy keeping people happy. It's particularly frustrating when we find ourselves trying to balance conflicting needs and mutually exclusive preferences. Perhaps you're thoroughly tired by all your efforts to pursue peace and harmony. You deserve to be applauded for even attempting this, yet it seems you just keep incurring criticism. Don't throw in the towel just yet. The Solstice suggests that someone's becoming a lot more reasonable.Your Week Ahead - Love Focus: It's easy to project our dreams on to the object of our desire. We don't see who they really are but who we'd like them to be. As long as their actions don't differ too much from what we have in mind, we can enjoy their company and they, similarly, can project their dreams on to us. Then one day one becomes aware that the other is not displaying what they want to see. Is that what compatibility truly is? As Venus links to retrograde Neptune opposite your sign this week, something much deeper can arise. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Leo

Your Week Ahead: Where's the guard, clutching the rifle, guarding the door through which you can never hope to pass? Are you sure it's even locked? And if it is, what's that key-shaped object lying on the floor? As Mercury combines with your ruler, at the Solstice, you're being helped to see new possibilities, options, alternatives, and invitations. These aren't fanciful visions, intended to bring comfort in moments of frustration. They represent real chances, as long as you're willing to take them. But you need to stop doubting your abilities.Your Week Ahead - Love Focus: The world is often dismissive of people with too much confidence. They're labelled arrogant and insensitive and accused of being in love with their mirror! Yet in a strange way, folk who like themselves that much exude an almost hypnotically attractive quality. I'm not suggesting you should cultivate such a tendency - but you ought not to go to the other extreme and find fault with yourself. If you want to improve a key relationship this week, remember: a little pride is nothing to be ashamed of! Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Pisces

Your Week Ahead: This isn't a perfect world, and it might never be one, no matter how many Solstices come and go. But it's not such a bad place, either. And our experience of how perfect or imperfect it is varies according to the mood we find ourselves, in or the attitude that we take. Now, I'm really not saying, 'Imagine everything is fine and it will be fine.' That's a justification for living in the kind of ignorance that rarely turns out to be blissful. But you really should now look more favourably on something you've previously felt inclined to resent.Your Week Ahead - Love Focus: As Venus links with your ruler, you are slowly starting to make sense of your latest idea. You can begin to see more 'use' for a notion that you keep entertaining. As you keep entertaining it, it keeps entertaining you. At the moment, there's something irritatingly tantalising about the vision. It is shrouded in mist. You can't pin it down. Yet, the fog is slowly lifting and it is getting easier to appreciate the significance of this instinctive idea. As the Solstice arrives, it's time to trust that more. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

HOROSCOPES BY JONATHAN CAINER

This weekend, a New Moon arrives. Of all the New Moons to arrive in a year, Cancer's annual event is particularly powerful. With the Moon in her own sign, her qualities of emergence and emotional renewal are unhindered. And she doesn't act alone. Venus's harmonious link with Pluto suggests that, no matter what, love will survive and be reborn more powerfully now. And the dynamic link between Mars and Jupiter promises that, as long as we're willing to be brave, this is the beginning of a wonderful adventure. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Cancer

Your astrological outlook is still hopeful. There's much to be cheerful about. There are clear signs that point to an upturn in your circumstances, surprisingly good news, and fresh opportunities. Positive though it is, the cosmic climate isn't providing a magic wand to wave away all unfairness, and grant you unlimited wishes. It does however suggest that justice is closer in one specific area of your life. While one desire is no nearer to being fulfilled, another is brought within your reach. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Libra

Most people can't predict the future. But though they might not be able to know exactly what will happen at 11.10am on Saturday, if you ask them something more abstract, many folk find that they've a better idea than they might imagine. If, for example, I asked you which of your friends were likely to party too much on Saturday, you wouldn't need to consult an oracle to see! It's common sense, rather than prophetic insight. And it's only common sense that you need to guide you now. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Leo

Our dreams are often the cause of drama in our lives. 'How so?' I hear you ask. Well, consider this: dreams create our inspirations... we want them more than anything else. We'll do what it takes to make them come true - even if that means making sacrifices in other areas. Recently, you've been overwhelmed by an intense situation. But what are your options? Of course, you could give up on your aspirations... but where would that leave you? Hold on to what you believe in, this weekend. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Capricorn

What if I started your forecast by telling you that I didn't really like what you're wearing? It would hardly make you receptive to what I had to say! No matter how beneficial the rest of the words were, they'd fall on deaf ears, made hard of hearing by criticism. Of course, I don't know what you're wearing. But I do know that your astrological outlook is looking pretty good this weekend. And, you can maximise its effect by creating a better impression in a key relationship now. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Aries

Yesterday, we talked about heeding the voice inside you. But there's a difference between listening to a voice, and blindly following its commands. I don't want to cast doubt, but there's a reason why our brains often supersede our gut instincts. If we acted on only the animal part of our nature, how much of the modern world would have come to fruition? We might never even have mastered the art of fire! Whatever you start this weekend, judge it with a quiet mind; your fears will be unfounded. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Taurus

'It's the end of the world as we know it!' sang R.E.M. It must be the doom-mongers' theme tune. But they can never agree why it's nigh. A new bacterial plague perhaps? Asteroids, plummeting towards us? A zombie uprising. An alien invasion - perhaps all three. Thankfully, none of the above is about to happen. The portents are good. Soon you'll be basking in much-deserved sunshine. Even the doom-mongers will be whistling a different tune. Is that Bobby McFerrin I hear? Don't worry - be happy! Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Sagittarius

Relationships can be difficult to understand. Following the Solstice, you're finding yourself pondering this more and more. You're wondering about someone. You're unsure of exactly what you mean to them �" and vice versa. This isn't to suggest that you should cut yourself free. Uncertainty is not a bad thing. Re-evaluating people allows you to free yourself from those who might be dragging you down. It's also a chance to recognise how truly fortunate you are. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Gemini

There's a reason famous brands are as successful as they are - and, no, it's not that they're better! We buy them because they're well known - because if everyone else thinks they're good then they must be the best. But we're paying for prestige. There are millions of other products that are just as good - and cheaper. So much is wasted by placing value on the wrong things. This weekend, it's worth re-evaluating your priorities. Don't waste time on people and situations that aren't worth it. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Scorpio

It's about journeys for you this weekend. Venus links to one of your rulers, Pluto, sitting in a part of the sky that represents short trips. While your other ruler, Mars, is in the part of the sky that speaks of longer sojourns. Mars also makes a dynamic link to the planet of adventurous travel, Jupiter. But, much like this forecast, it's important not to be distracted by details. Some things only make sense when you see the bigger picture. Take things how they come, you'll soon see how they're all connected. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Aquarius

Some people notice fine details. Not everyone can distinguish between a Braeburn and a Royal Gala; or the Fast Car 3000 and the Fast Car 3001. To some, it's just an apple, or just a car- and that's all it needs to be. To others, though, there's a joy in making the distinction. Such things matter in an area of life that matters to you. Honour the details of something you care about this weekend. Your care can help avoid, or help mop up, confusion created by someone's carelessness. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Pisces

Have you ever looked at the people you love, and found they seem like strangers? Suddenly, nothing quite adds up? You can't remember what it was that made you choose them, or what made them choose you. Why you ever thought that you were compatible? Perhaps they're thinking the exact same thing. Is that a reason to call a relationship quits? No, not at all! It's an invitation to find a new level of communication. Devote more time to something you fear is a lost cause this weekend. Read more

5:06PM(AEST)

Virgo

Commitments play complex roles in our lives. Some give us purpose. They become an integral part of the identity in which we take a deep and enduring pride. Others feel like burdens that restrict our lives. The other thing about commitments is that their status is unstable. One day, you wake up, and something that you were once pleased about feels like a set of chains. You've been feeling like this about an obligation. This weekend, don't worry. Circumstances will change. Read more
