Rockie Weekly Horoscope June 29-July 5
General Forecast |
Good gossip, the kind you can bank on, while the Cancer sun and retrograde Mercury meet on the 28th. The full moon in traditional, respectful Capricorn this weekend sets the tone for the extended family-friendly events planned for the Fourth. If you go overboard, which you likely do when agreeable, affectionate Venus forms a polarity with idealistic Neptune, you can be saved on Sunday as Venus connects with prudent Saturn. Nothing special for Independence Day except for an all-encompassing, sympathetic Pisces moon.

Aries: Mar. 20 - Apr. 19
After two years of living with restrictive Saturn in your house of romance and recreation, we assume youve made whatever adjustments were necessary. Nonetheless, while it may provide a measure of stability, Saturn is still a bitch. However, this perceived lack of affection could change over the weekend when lovable Venus hooks up with the Old Man. Unfortunately, deceptive, delusional Neptune is also a part of the planetary mix, so someone is liable to think theyve found true love when they havent. Forewarned, forearmed, etc., etc.
Taurus: Apr. 20 - May 20
This week your reputation as an artist (scam artist included) might be pitted against your responsibilities at home. Those you know quite well, thanks to two years dealing with heavy-duty Saturn in Go ahead, spend the extra bucks Leo. When your affable Venus ruler meets up with Saturn, you may have the pleasure (and expense) of entertaining the goddess, her friends and family. Maybe buy something fabulous as well. At the same time, imaginative Neptune in your Aquarius career zone is projecting a retouched version of you and your latest accomplishment.
Gemini: May 21 - Jun. 20
Call the fashion police. Or any authority figure wholl show you how to use the annual conjunction of stylish Venus and tradition-bound Saturn to your best advantage. Shouldnt be that difficult since their meeting occurs in your house of communication and transportation, the vast area that Gemini rules. Now would also be an opportune time to think about taking a design course, scroll through E-bay to check on prices or find the garage sale treasure youve been searching for. Should you buy it while your Mercury ruler is retrograde?
Cancer: Jun. 21 - Jul. 22
First theres the birthday celebration, then the full moon in your Capricorn complement and, capping this weeks emotional extravaganza, you have Mercury, retrograde in your sign for the first time in seven years, making the memory of birthdays past so much more poignant. The romantically-inclined Moon Child may also have to decide whether to make a significant sacrifice in order to live up to a high-falutin ideal or adopt the life lesson that realistic Saturn has been teaching you these past two years instead.
Leo: Jul. 23 - Aug. 22
Truth, beauty, a greater love, a higher calling. You could easily get caught up by the sheer purity all of the above are offering a hungry soul. And while a bit of confusion may be the price you have to pay for this fabulous feast, its possible that retrograde Mercury, in reviewing the past, is whispering words of wisdom in your ear when it meets with your sun ruler. Look to a friend with sufficient experience to know of what he or she speaks. Since the conjunction takes place in maternal Cancer, perhaps a suitable mother figure?
Libra: Sep. 23 - Oct. 22
You could be in both an enviable and a vulnerable position this week. Enviable, because your loving Venus ruler is open to whatever idealistic pitch is being thrown by impressionable Neptune acting through your teammate or a loved one. Vulnerable, because youre liable to buy into the vision only to discover, while Venus mergers with realistic Saturn, that its a bunch of hooey. Meanwhile the Cancer-Capricorn full moon can bring to a head whatever conflict youve been feeling between a family and a career matter.
Scorpio: Oct. 23 - Nov. 21
Although you may be caught in the middle, Scorpios are decidedly less vulnerable but probably just as conflicted as your Libra neighbor. Appreciative Venus and reputable Saturn at the top of your chart opposing nebulous Neptune at home suggests that a questionable domestic matter is distracting you from pursuing what could be an impressive career coup. But if this is not a challenge youre dealing with, then simply be grateful that your Mars co-ruler is so favorably aligned with the full moon that you just might get a gift this weekend.
Sagittarius: Nov. 22 - Dec. 21
Believe what you will, but try to favor the people that are being good to you. That means the well-established and the well-respected, the beautiful more than the bold. This is not the time to rail against the gods or take a vow of poverty. Seeking justice is always praiseworthy, particularly while Venus is rewarding all the fire signs. But her approval may be fleeting; the goddess moves into Virgo, the sign of perfection and perfectibility on July 14. The Capricorn full moon this weekend emphasizes your finances and feelings.
Capricorn: Dec. 22 - Jan. 20
Concentrate on the love, the unexpected gift, the heightened aesthetics and sensitivity to pleasure that you get from Venus during her marriage to your Saturn ruler. Although this is an annual astro-event, while Saturn has been transiting regal Leo, you may feel entitled to more than one day in 365. No one but a self-abnegating Aquarius or a Pisces, ruled by flip-flopping Neptune would argue. Ignore them and focus instead on the emotional high you can attain during the also annual Capricorn full moon. An expose of sorts.
Aquarius: Jan. 21 - Feb. 18
An inkling that a financial turnaround is in the wind could be inferred as protective Jupiter, even though its retrograde, reaches out to your Uranus ruler, also retrograde, in your Pisces money house. At this point, youd be wise to remind yourself that patience is the key to heaven, and that the actual payoff may take a while. Jupiter turns direct in early August, Uranus, not until the Thanksgiving weekend. Meanwhile, last weeks forecast, e.g., the exceptionally strong vibe coming from your Leo house of partners, is still very much in effect.
The full moon this weekend is throwing light on a career matter, the stuff that Capricorn ambition is so capable of handling without much input (no notes, please) from you. Feel free to relax and enjoy whatever variation of domestic bliss the family-centric Cancer sun is offering for the Fourth of July holiday. However, you might want to pay attention to what you overhear this weekend when Mercury retrograde crosses paths with the sun. This info could influence what you do post-holiday when you have to go back to work.
