Horoscopes for June 18, 2014

By
From page B6 | June 18, 2014 |

These are the last days of the season, and as the moon lingers in the last sign of the zodiac, it will feel like something is coming to a close so that a new cycle can begin. A bittersweet tone brings up surprising emotions. Those who don’t cry often may shed a tear for an unexpected bit of loveliness or a realization of time’s rapid passing.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Today’s proceedings will be like a recipe you follow exactly. Stick with the plan, and don’t worry if it still comes out looking different from the picture. In the end, you’ll “eat” and be satisfied.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A proverb suggests that you ask about your neighbors before you buy the house. Though you may not be purchasing real estate, you’ll be getting into something new, and it will pay to know the others involved.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have your own personal ethos to which you adhere, and it has nothing to do with the rules of society, religion or your profession. When it comes to your work, you set the bar higher than anyone else would set it.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Once-and-for-all declarations are childish, as are most judgments, threats and ultimatums. You may hear such foolishness, and your compassionate response will help others to be better.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You could think of yourself as a victor or a victim. In either scenario, you would be able to draw conclusive evidence that the role is true. Placing your mind on “victor” will create such an event.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). An extremely small percentage of the world’s population has experienced the hospitality of a butler. You will wish for such a helper today, as there are many details you could use a hand with.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In one study, a 10-minute conversation between basically honest strangers produced approximately three lies. Applying more honesty than the average person, you’ll build bonds.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your instinct to censor the world for your dear ones is admirable. In the case of the young and the old, it is necessary. As for other loved ones, they might be more sophisticated, aware and able than you realize.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Only you can answer the bigger questions in your life. You’ll gather information from others, but you’ll find it mostly superfluous because you already know in your heart what you have to do.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your conscience will be chirping like Jiminy Cricket, so listen up. The others in your group may not be so aware of the voice inside their heads. You bear the moral imperative.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). One thing that’s messing up your focus is the number of alternatives available to you. Eliminate one, two or 10. It will clear your mind magnificently.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There is power in comparison, and you can use it to persuade someone to your side. A contrasting view will make something seem better or worse than it would without the contrast.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Life is about choices. You see this more clearly now than ever, and you take control at a new level. A partner helps you in this regard and steers you right in the next two months. July is good for your bank account, and that helps, too. August shows an emotional healing. Youngsters figure into your success this fall. Virgo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 12, 14, 33 and 29.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m a Libra with that classic problem of not being able to make a decision quickly, and this recently has put me in a bad financial position. I couldn’t decide whether or not to take an offer on my house, and my hesitation lost the sale. Subsequently, it has been two months, and I have not received another offer. Do you have any advice for Libras who need to be quicker on the uptake?”

First, you need to stop being so hard on yourself and taking every decision with such gravity. Selling a house certainly seems like one of the larger decisions of life, but were you to make it to 100 years old, would you look back and kick yourself for selling in July instead of April? Highly unlikely. So don’t agonize. Instead, try to breathe some levity into your process.

It’s not as easy as simply commanding yourself to lighten up; that probably won’t work. However, once you decide that you’re not going to make every pro and con into a gigantic stress-fest, you might find that it’s pretty easy to change your attitude and shorten the length of your decision-making process. More on this tomorrow.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Country music star and vocal coach of “The Voice,” Blake Shelton is a Gemini born under a soulful and artistic Pisces moon. When Pisces, the sign of old souls, is featured prominently in an artist’s chart, it often indicates a person who knew their life purpose or career path at an early age. Shelton wrote songs as a teen, and so he definitely fits the astral profile.
