Rockie Weekly Horoscope June 17 – June 23



Aries: Mar. 20 – Apr. 19You might mean well, but there’s a conflict building between your innate self-interest, amplified by the return of your Mars ruler to Aries, and your concern about a family matter or a problem at the house. The tension affects cuspy Rams more than the others, and should reach a fevered pitch around the full moon. The others may encounter frustration trying to get away for the weekend or difficulty keeping emotions in check during whatever passes for a Father’s Day celebration. A certain amount of depression, a/k/a stern Saturn trapped in the parent zone, is a given.


Taurus: Apr. 20 – May 20The deeper significance of this potent full moon could strike home when a money matter goes awry. What appears to be a safe bet, as befits the Mommy-Daddy Cancer-Capricorn sun-moon axis, can draw unexpected interference from a hot-headed acquaintance. And while your natural inclination at the moment is to provide protection or pleasure for those you love, those you don’t may challenge you at every turn. Let’s hope that siblings or neighbors don’t number among your current favorites. They’re likely to disappoint.


Gemini: May 21 – Jun. 20Not until the full moon is well on the wane will you fully realize how much you’re enjoying your Mercury ruler’s newly found closeness with amiable, artistic Venus. Not only can your taste for the finer, more valuable things improve, but your choices could be taken more seriously, possibly adding to your reputation as a connoisseur or, since the planets are in Cancer, a gourmet. Enjoy the popularity, panache and pleasantries Venus brings to the table. In another month, Mercury will be at a standstill, getting ready to turn retrograde until mid-August, and Venus will have moved on.


Cancer: Jun. 21 – Jul. 22The dramatic aftermath of the Cancer-Capricorn full moon Tuesday night can reverberate a lot longer than another two weeks. Because the event occurs so close to the sensitive solstice points, Crabs celebrating birthdays this month will feel the impact more strongly than those born in July. It’s the latter group who’ll be reacting to the attention being paid, the respect being shown and the air of authority they’re emitting as expressive Mercury and appreciative Venus pay homage to old school Saturn at the tail end of your sign.


Leo: Jul. 23 – Aug. 22This weekend when the spring social season is peaking and in-demand Lions are appearing at assorted events, keep an eye out, an ear open for a promising financial venture. The entrepreneurial spirit soars whenever prosperity-minded Jupiter presents an opportunity to gutsy, risk-taking Mars. This surge in confidence is especially true for the August Leo because by next weekend the duo will be shaking hands across your money axis. The July-born may get an offer to join a group of adventurers or, failing that, to buy the book.


Virgo: Aug. 23 – Sep. 22House-proud Virgins can use the potent energy generated by the cardinal sign full moon to resolve a messy domestic problem or, just as easily, increase their stature in the community. If you’re part of a family business, so much the better. But be sure to leave plenty of time to meet with friends and friends of friends because, next weekend, affectionate Venus will be as close to Mercury as the love goddess gets this year. Repeat: for the rest of the year. While she wraps her arms around your ruling planet, you should pursue a romance.


Libra: Sep. 23 – Oct. 22Librans born close to the autumn equinox may have a gut reaction to the full moon that follows close on the heels of the summer solstice. Prepare for a deluge of emotional memories unleashed by the maternal Cancer/paternal Capricorn polarity. The October-born could operate in another arena altogether as knowledgeable Mercury and your value-conscious Venus ruler gang up on stringent Saturn in your career house. Charm can move mountains of resistance; so can a well-written, well-researched proposal. A fabulous lunch wouldn’t hurt either.


Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 21A Scorpio moon this weekend, including the better part of Father’s Day, can make you feel right at home no matter whose home you’re in. It’ll also facilitate a smooth transition into solar Cancer, the sign that feeds your love of learning and your hunger for truly meaningful experiences. Meanwhile your Mars co-ruler, revitalized by the emotional heat of fiery Aries, is stirring your desire as it reacts to optimistic Jupiter’s challenge. Whether it’s an adventure, a game of chance or a romance, you’ll whole-heartedly dive in.


Sagittarius: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21Archers born near the cusp of the winter solstice might be taken aback by the aftermath of the Capricorn full moon on Tuesday. But even before that significant event occurs, try to address your attitude about Father’s Day in general, this one in particular. One advantage of having Pluto in your sign is its ability to call up buried feelings, happy memories as well as traumatic ones. Archers born in November could be on edge, watching how a potentially huge career move develops while their Jupiter ruler is being stoked by hot-headed Mars.


Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 20It’s entirely possible that the days after Father’s Day could turn out to be the most important ones of the year. Not opening night, not your anniversary, not even Christmas! The Capricorn full moon Tuesday may mark the event or, just as likely, the realization that’ll trigger a dramatic change in Goat behavior, particularly for those born on the cusp of Sagittarius. The others dodge the emotion-filled bullet by concentrating on the pleasures, both physical and intellectual they’re sharing with well-regarded partners.


Aquarius: Jan. 21 – Feb. 18You’ve been warned, so if impulsive Mars encourages you to go way beyond your means when it opposes enthusiastic Jupiter, you have no one to blame—well, you could try to curtail your partner’s spending habits—but yourself. On the other hand, you may actually deserve a substantial reward for what you did in April when Mars was in Aquarius and egging you on. But if the opposition doesn’t present a financial challenge, be sure you buckle up and slow down while driving. Aggressive Mars is the leading cause of accidents.


Pisces: Feb. 19 – Mar. 19Today’s brilliant idea won’t be the straw that breaks the camel’s back or the shiny lure that catches the Fish. While mental Mercury rewards ground-breaking Uranus in your sign, your latest brainstorm could blaze a trail that the creative, romantically-inclined Cancer sun follows over the July Fourth weekend. Pay special attention to random thoughts because they can inspire moments to remember for a long time to come. The same could be said about the Capricorn full moon in your career midheaven on Tuesday.
