Horoscopes for June 28, 2014

By
From page B5 | June 28, 2014 |

Mercury’s retrograde ends next week, and already there’s a sense that backward parts of life are taking a turn for the better. Yesterday’s dark moon in Cancer extinguished stale energy and invigorated the realm of home and hearth. It also brought gentle feelings to relationships with women, a trend that will continue in the weeks to come.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re entitled to your experience, and sometimes sharing it with those who have their own reasons for not understanding it just taints the whole thing. Love and laugh without explanation.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can’t audit relationships the way you can a college course. You can’t interact without being “graded” in some way. But if you’re in it to learn, the grade will favorably reflect that.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your trouble goes under the radar because it’s something subtle and personal to you – or so you think. Would you be surprised to find out that someone else feels the same way? Speak up and you’ll find out.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It seems like life has two modes for you. First, nothing seems to be happening at all, and then everything seems to be happening at once. Both modes put you to the test.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you’re really honest with yourself, you’ll admit that you’ve been on your own side in many matters, but not all of them. Life gets easier when you become your own best friend and supporter across the board.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). People appreciate how you say what you need to say at the optimum moment and then put a lid on it, trusting their intelligence and ability to understand the point.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some people have earned your love; for others, it’s unwarranted but just as strong. The latter category needs your love most of all, and you are only made stronger by giving it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). For some, anxiety is a lifestyle. But you know that having strong feelings about life doesn’t make it more important. Sometimes it’s best to shrug it off and lighten up.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Throughout the world and throughout time, people have had peculiar ways of declaring their superior status. You’ll note and reject one such popular status symbol today.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There is such a thing as unconditional love. How would things be different for you if you knew that you were loved for who you are and not because of what you do or don’t do?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The beauty others see in you is more than a good appearance. It’s appreciation for life embodied. It’s the visual that goes along with kindness and compassion.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). While competitive people around you posture and strut, the opposite strategy will work for you. If they don’t know what you have, and you’re not considered a contender, you will have a distinct advantage.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll experience what you’ve long wondered about. Though you’re strong in yourself, you also accept that others are entitled to think and do things differently. Because you’re both morally grounded and tolerant, you’ll be trusted to an important responsibility. You’ll be paid exceptionally well in July, September and February. Pisces and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 20, 14, 33 and 10.

VENUS IN GEMINI: Venus newly in Gemini wants to turn romance into a game. So how do you know you’re playing fair at the game of love? Guidelines for this Venus-in-Gemini transit include:

Know when to hold ’em’ and fold ’em. When you’re playing a card game, you don’t get all of the cards you’ll ever use in the game upfront. That would ruin the fun. You’re dealt a certain number of cards, which you then consider and react to until the next cards are dealt or revealed. If you remember and apply this metaphor to romance, the game will be interesting.

Each new move, fact and story you reveal about yourself is like a card. There are some you never have to reveal in the game and some you play at the optimum time. Be strategic. In this age, privacy is more valuable than ever because we have so little of it. And because Gemini energy is all about communication, many will be tempted to share too much. But take a step back and consider what new people really need or deserve to know about you. Blurting out too much at once is akin to playing “52 Pickup.”

CELEBRITY PROFILES: “American Idol” alumnus and country music cutie Kellie Pickler has been bringing her talent and celebrity to one good cause after another lately. Whether she’s supporting the American Lung Association or performing for the troops, nurturing others feeds her soul. Her Mercury and Venus in Leo lends an entertaining spark to everything this moonchild takes on.
