Horoscopes for June 4, 2014

By
From page B5 | June 04, 2014 |

The moon in Virgo aligns with the values of the Gemini sun – this is “get it done” energy. Both Virgo and Gemini are ruled by Mercury, who is slowing to a halt as he readies himself for a reversal on Saturday, June 7. Despite the stall of Mercury, this sun/moon combo is rooting for us to handle a dozen things before the retrograde.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Don’t think in terms of success or failure. The move that doesn’t work the way you wanted it to is actually just a springboard to the next experiment. These are the lines of thought that lead to happiness.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Others might see your actions as impulsive, but you’re really not. You just know when improvisation is the right call. You read the room and respond accordingly.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The one you find irresistible will bring you to new heights of understanding and confusion all in the same conversation. Now that’s a kind of talent, considering how even-minded you are today.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The effort you put out to accomplish a goal will actually make you smarter. So don’t worry about whether you know enough or have the right kind of mind. You’ll get the right kind of mind as you work.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The step you take today will feel remarkably like the one you took yesterday – and maybe it pretty much is the same step. But take it anyway. The sum of your efforts will be far greater than the number of steps taken.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The group needs a leader, and you’re it. Things will flounder without you. Don’t let that happen. Take charge. Your boldness will inspire help and support further down the line.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your focus on one goal is so strong early in the day that you’ll hardly notice all of the unrelated talk and distracting extras vying for your attention. Tonight, you may go delightfully off-course.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your brevity will be appreciated. Whether it’s a meeting, lunch or date, end it on the early side. When you don’t let things drag on, the parting will be sweeter; the memories, more dear.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There are no measures of personal success that are constant, because personal success is different for everyone. When you work your hardest to be your best, that is success.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Even though you’re busy, your mind will keep returning to the events of this past weekend. Something happened that will take weeks to fully process. Get comfortable with a transition.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In the Golden Era of Hollywood, some cinematographers would film through gauze to give everything a magical, diffused look. It’s similar to the way you see the world today. Are you in love?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It only makes sense to take pride in what you did. In today’s case, this should include figuring out a good way to tell the story of it. Work it out on paper if you have to. This is one for the archives.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. The pressure to know a lot and to be good at things is off. This is what you needed to feel free to pursue what you want to do! Many people will congratulate you for what you accomplish in July, and it comes with financial rewards, too. Love and travel will be the focus of August. September successfully ends a quest. Sagittarius and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 14, 38, 9 and 50.

PRE-RETROGRADE CLEANUP: There’s much to accomplish before the Mercury retrograde at the end of the week. One small task done well starts a wave of productivity. What’s your lucky task?

LIBRA: The bed, where you do your dreaming, where your body repairs itself during sleep, where you retreat when you’re sick or in love or just wanting to read a good book – that springboard of productivity is where you should concentrate your efforts before the retrograde on Saturday. Washing sheets and bedding is a given. But it also will be lucky to go one step further and freshen up the mattress. You will need a sifter or a fine mesh strainer, essential oil (lavender is lucky for Libra) and a vacuum.

1. Mix a few drops of essential oil into about a cup and a half of baking soda.

2. Use your sifter or strainer to sprinkle the mattress with your scented powder while thinking lovely thoughts about your love life, dreams and aspirations, well-being, health, and vitality.

3. Leave for an hour to allow this dry blessing to do its thing.

4. Vacuum. Voila!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: The rumor is that Angelina Jolie will team up on the big screen with Brad Pitt for the first time since “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” in 2005. Whatever her choices, personal, professional or philanthropic, Jolie attracts all kinds of attention for them. Her sun and Mercury in Gemini suggests a lighthearted walk through life, but her moon, Mars and Jupiter in Aries adds fiery intensity to the mix.
