Horoscopes for June 15, 2014

By
From page C4 | June 15, 2014 |

Saturn, the planet of patrimony, is traveling retrograde on this Father’s Day, casting a warm glow on the past. Whatever your feelings about the word “father,” they are likely to be enhanced by the soft light of retrospect. Many dads will be feeling sentimental, and tender gestures that highlight good memories will be deeply appreciated.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Applying your efforts completely and faithfully will bring success. The tricky part is in choosing a venture that is likely to hold your attention and magnetize your passions.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What good is it to love someone if you can’t demonstrate that love? Your feelings do have a strange power, but is it enough to be felt by another? That is the question. Your love is pure, and you demonstrate it well.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re better off when you build your hopes around the many things that matter to you, not just one or two things you desperately want. “Wanting desperately” works for some cosmic climates, but not the present one.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Funny people make you happy, and happy people make you funny. Relaxation makes both of these dynamics possible. Whatever you can do to make others comfortable will pave the way for an easy day.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When looking for answers, should you seek universal and prototypical solutions, or should you seek personal, idiosyncratic solutions? Both will work, but the latter will bring more satisfaction.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Even though you hate to be overwhelmed, the feeling that you have too much to do is far better than the feeling that you do not have enough to do. A master list will be your ticket to success.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Uncertainty can be uncomfortable, but if you knew what was going to happen, it wouldn’t be an adventure. The question is: How uncomfortable are you willing to get?

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your public image will be a theme of the day. You can’t control the pictures that other people take of you, but you can learn the poses that work best for you or decide not to care too much about it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll feel that you are in service to humanity. “Humanity” is not always an easy customer, but your unique efforts in this regard will be mostly effective and/or educational.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Because you are a sensitive and aware person, you cannot watch the news or a movie or interact with the elderly or the very young without profoundly feeling the evanescence of life.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Before, it felt like you were at a dead end, but now you can see that you can move beyond where the path is known and the road is paved. You’ll be gripped by a pioneering spirit.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Nature is fundamentally uncontrollable. That’s why lush gardens and well-behaved pets are so impressive. You’ll tame nature in some way today and be commended for your efforts

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Partnerships, cooperative efforts and diplomatic maneuvers will be highly successful over the next six weeks. The respect you’ve shown elders will pave the way for a lucrative opportunity in August. Your talents will be well utilized, and you’ll earn a high honor. Exciting dates fill November and December. Aquarius and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 23, 15, 30, 40 and 19.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: On June 17, Mercury, traveling retrograde, will back into Gemini, starting new conversations that have a deja vu quality to them. Well, maybe the topics are worn and the news is rehashed, but new understandings can still be reached. Keep in mind that most people have to hear the same story numerous times before they start to accept it. It’s what marketers call “effective advertising frequency.” Some believe that potential consumers need to see an advertisement five to 10 times before they are receptive to buying. Others suggest the magic number is seven, and still others suggest it’s over 20. Maybe you’re not exactly doing sales this week, but you’ll be selling yourself, your ideas and your story.

The solstice falls on Saturday, June 21. The sun moving into Cancer starts the new season officially, and the moon in Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, greets this transit with fresh zest. The weekend will be a high-energy celebration of the sun, life, love, music, home, community and the things that unify us even as they seem to set our hearts free.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: The teen star of “Doogie Howser, M.D.,” Neil Patrick Harris, is a Gemini who found his career path early in life. His natal Mars, the planet of ambition and drive, is in Pisces, the sign of old souls. This placement suggests a wisdom beyond his years and strong spiritual guidance, as well. His moon and Neptune in worldly, sophisticated Sagittarius shows a love of travel and adventure.
