Horoscopes for June 9, 2014

By
From page A7 | June 09, 2014 |

Neptune, guardian of dreams, is a brilliant blue planet laced in thin white clouds, looped with six rings and orbited by 13 or more moons. Dreamy, indeed! And now the gassy giant appears to be moving backward through Pisces, the realm Neptune rules and the most ethereal part of the sky. If you’re looking for inspiration, mine your dreams.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). As you quietly go about your business, you invite others to draw their own conclusions about you – they will anyway. Most would agree that you’re up to something, but they assume it’s something very good.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). While speed is of the essence in matters of finance, go slow with a new love relationship. Knowledge puts you in control, especially if what you know is whom you can trust and whom you can’t.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re a rebel with a very good cause, and you’ll attract attention for it as you tell more people what you’re up to. Let loved ones help. It gives them a sense of satisfaction and you more freedom.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The opportunity to help that comes up today seems custom-made for you: It’s something you can very easily accomplish that others would have a terrible time with.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You never know whether you’ll maintain your composure in times of stress until you’ve been put to the “stress test.” So welcome whatever comes up to ruffle your feathers and rile your spirits. It’s making you better.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Chances are it will be better to give a little more than you planned than to withhold what is being asked for. Ultimately, what you give will be expendable and not very important, but it will make someone feel better.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have resources cerebral and financial, creative and practical. Use them all to solve the problems of the day. The one to solve first is: How can I have more fun?

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There’s little point in taking action unless you’re going to do it with some enthusiasm. Personality and energy matter more than they did yesterday, and you’ll bring more of both to everything you do.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Like a child’s favorite blanket, there are ideas that provide comfort even though, strictly speaking, they may be unsupported. Maybe you’ve outgrown an idea, but separating yourself from it entirely creates discord within.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You never know what people are going through, and even if you were to ask, many of them wouldn’t say. That’s why the love you spread is so important. A smile here, a listening ear there – it makes a difference.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Whether in childrearing or the boardroom, a certain amount of trouble is to be expected and should be met with calm determination. The No. 1 rule: Stay as centered as possible.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The saying goes, “Like attracts like.” If you don’t feel good about the people who are around you, leave. You’ll rise to your environment, so make it a good one!

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’re a natural-born leader. That doesn’t mean you know everything about leading people; it just means you’re eager to learn. You’ll pick up new skills over the next six weeks. Claim a new goal in August and follow through. Three months later, it’s in the bag. January and February are the luckiest in love. Pisces and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 22, 24 and 18.

NEPTUNE RETROGRADE: Human awareness builds in levels. As it is with a pyramid, the lower levels should not be thought of as worse than the higher ones. Rather, they are essential and broad, giving support to the higher levels. At the base of awareness is the instinct to survive as an animal being on this planet. Above that is the social instinct to do what the crowd is doing. Go higher, and individual expressions and wishes come into play. Expanded awareness goes beyond what is important to the individual and into the health and wholeness of all things. This is the realm to explore during the Neptune retrograde in Pisces, which occurs between now and Nov. 16, 2014. This transit highlights and speaks to our subconscious, dreams and awareness. The Piscean part of it adds ethereal tones, spiritual significance and an element of psychic connection to the list of themes we’ll be exploring in the weeks to come. For some, it will be like seeing “The Matrix” for the first time – either the movie or, in some fashion, the illusive reality that the movie is about. That is to say, at times during this transit, life can seem more like an idea of life than a physical reality and linear experience.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Johnny Depp goes into his new solar year in love with and inspired by the beautiful Amber Heard, whom he met on the set of “The Rum Diary.” Depp was born when the sun was in versatile, plucky Gemini and the moon was in the more serious earth sign of Capricorn. In fact, earth signs rule Depp’s natal chart, including Mercury and Venus in determined, hardworking Taurus.
