Horoscopes for June 8, 2014

By
From page C4 | June 08, 2014 |

The sun and moon form an air-sign trine of social reassurance. It will feel good to be in a group of like minds. And if you don’t know where the other people are coming from, conversation happens easily, and you’ll find out soon enough. Venus and Pluto also form a trine that brings luck for the bigger issues and changes to be sorted out this week.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you’re feeling tortured over problems that don’t seem to be problematic to anyone but you, it’s because you’re focusing too small. Step out of the scene. Taking a well-deserved break will help you broaden your view.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re the right person to enforce the rules. It’s not because you want to ruin anyone’s fun, but if everyone were to break the rules, then no one would have peace. When you have your way, peace prevails.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your dreams are lovely, but don’t dwell on them for too long. How do you know it’s time to leave the dream? When your real life is suffering. Dreams should inform your next move, not keep you from making one.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Devote yourself to doing the dirty work. You’ll be better for it. If you keep doing the easy work, you won’t get the chance to improve. The benefits to doing what the others don’t want to do will be numerous and vast.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The natural reaction to pressure is to do more – to do everything you possibly can. The best response today, however, will be to do less – maybe even nothing.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It will be challenging to get the information you need. You won’t be able to simply ask and hear it. You are clever, though, and will piece together the whole picture from fragments you’ll pick up here and there.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People will depend on you, and you’ll take pride in providing what they need. The work of the past three weeks has made you strong and able. Tonight you may be up late meeting a deadline.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Being near your special one will be a joy. Savor the relationship you’ve built. The afternoon features an investment opportunity. This will not be lucrative immediately, but the contacts you make will be most useful.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be feeling more introverted than usual. Shyness works to your advantage. Your reserve only serves to attract that someone you’ve had your eye on.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If there’s a chance to travel, take it. Another positive move is to devote time to your inner athlete. Productivity will be high as a result of feeling physically energized.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll have plenty of help whether you want it or not. Be patient with those who bog down the process because they are still learning. If you’re open to it, the newbies have a perspective that will charm and inform you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you overdo things, you’ll miss out. The way to discover the hidden talents of your team is to hold back a bit. Leave an opening, and people will fill in the blanks in ways you don’t expect.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’re smart and informed, and you share it all. What more do people want from you? Your heart. You’ll have many opportunities to give it fully, and this is what makes your year great. You’ll make a big sale this month. Next month starts an educational process. Business success comes in November; December adds to your family. Cancer and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 3, 33, 38 and 20.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Retrogrades prevail, as Mercury, Saturn, Pluto and Neptune are all traveling the heavens in reverse. The cosmic dance of the week is one step forward, two steps back. And though this may feel like a jerky and unproductive progression, don’t be too quick to judge. Much good and learning comes from having to go back and check or redo your work. The key is in managing expectations and staying determined not to get frustrated.

Friday the 13th will defy its reputation and be the luckiest day of the week. The full moon in fiery Sagittarius will be a torch to light the way and ignite dreams and passions, too. Sagittarius is the sign of luck and adventure, two concepts that go hand-in-hand on Friday. If you want to be luckier, get out and see different places and people. Fortune favors the bold.

Saturday will be a Father’s Day prep day. The moon, Pluto, Mars and Jupiter form an arrangement that could set family dynamics on edge, but you can avoid trouble by preparing for multiple scenarios. Think about the end result you’d like to achieve with Dad and work backward from there. A stellar outcome only happens when you put the time, thought and effort into making it happen.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Kanye West is one of the most celebrated artists of all time, with more than 20 Grammy Awards. This year will be one of the most publicized he’s had, as the newlywed journeys his first year as Kim Kardashian’s husband. West was born when the sun was in Gemini and the moon in artistic Pisces. His Mercury, Venus and Mars are in Taurus, the sign of money.
