Rockie Weekly Horoscope June 24 – June 30



Aries: Mar. 20 – Apr. 19Push can come to shove while headstrong Mars in Aries provokes a response from optimistic Jupiter in your house of allies. No matter if the arrangement seems mutually beneficial to the people involved, some family members will be against it. The chances of reaching an agreement depends more on how patient you’re willing to be than on your determination to beat down the resistance. Also, try to understand that family tradition is important and that it wouldn’t hurt, e.g., you won’t compromise your integrity or individuality, to pay it lip service.


Taurus: Apr. 20 – May 20Your need to flee the scene may be strong, but this isn’t a good time to slip away. Since your affectionate Venus ruler and sobering Saturn have joined forces, responsibility for a soul sibling or a close neighbor can weigh heavily on your heart, your shoulders too. If money is involved, expect to encounter regulations, restrictions or roadblocks both in the gathering and the dispensing of it. No matter how sad or frustrating the situation, remember that the Cancer new moon on the 6th will bring positive elements, other caring people.


Gemini: May 21 – Jun. 20The purely pleasant association with amiable Venus that you and your Mercury ruler are enjoying may take a down-turn while heavy-duty Saturn joins the duo. If you’re depressed for no obvious reason, blame sad sack Saturn. Your annual run-in with the planet of “No!” may also result in a disappointing financial outcome or more work and worry than the object of your efforts is worth. However, there’s an outside chance you’ll be rescued by an unexpected gesture of good will from your boss or a powerful person who is not the typical authority figure.


Cancer: Jun. 21 – Jul. 22The cautious Crab may feel trapped between the alternatives offered by an aggressive employer and an enthusiastic parent, unable to decide whether to pick one over the other or skedaddle away from both. The opportunity to make this critical a choice between career and family probably won’t repeat for another six years, so take all the time you need. But if it comes down to attending a birthday celebration, even a major one, or taking on a challenging assignment, remember that you can always invent a reason to get together and eat.


Leo: Jul. 23 – Aug. 22A good deal of karmic debt gets paid back while Mercury, Venus and Saturn meet in your twelfth house of cosmic consciousness and past lifetimes. Chances are you won’t know that the books are being balanced or, just as likely, cooked! Still and all, keep an eye out for a forward-looking financial opportunity from prosperity-minded Jupiter. But if it seems too much like pie-in-the-sky, opt for a joint venture backed by trend-setters, inventors or New Age promoters. Putting your paws on other people’s money is the better bet.


Virgo: Aug. 23 – Sep. 22Whatever colleagues and casual acquaintances are planning can take a back seat to the potentially rewarding experience expansive Jupiter offers as July begins. Difficult as it may seem to pull out of a group project, keep the prospect of gaining a personal advantage uppermost in your mind. Soon enough generous Jupiter will exit your Libra money house taking easy opportunities for growth and success with it. This is also the time to support a partner’s out-of-the-box idea or unusual career choice. Beneficial for you both.


Libra: Sep. 23 – Oct. 22You might have as fortunate a stroke of luck around your birthday, but right now, while the Cancer sun and beneficial Jupiter in your sign align, it is your career and reputation that is attracting attention. What follows from all this noise should sustain you through the rest of the summer, but as Leo begins, there may be further obstacles to overcome. These can be similar to the snag you ran into while your Venus ruler met Saturn last weekend. Have you suddenly become a prudent, practical person?


Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 21The teacher with a devoted following, the young chef with a growing reputation, the care-giver who actually cares—they are the sort of people who can influence what you do this summer. Whether you also embrace their commitment to service and try to be the best you can be depends in large part on whether there’s a big enough payoff in the end. Not only of money; boosting your reputation at work or adding luster to the family’s name are benefits you can’t put a price on. It’s also important to cultivate the good will of your peers. Aren’t we the busy bee?


Sagittarius: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21Pressure from a partner can affect your decision about a career matter; however the sun’s provocative square to your Jupiter ruler also works both ways. His or her career could have a marked influence on your relationship. And if not relegated to the career sphere, then either person’s parent might be the one twisting the screws this week. Interdependence, co-dependence, interference? Call it what you will. Just know that once the July Fourth holiday is history, a new phase of the relationship, mutually supported by both parties, begins.


Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 20What has transpired during the past two years, while your Saturn ruler traveled through your empathetic Cancer complement, reaches its conclusion in the next few weeks. For a preview of how this phase of your life ends, whether with a bang or a whimper take a look at what happened and how you felt when expressive Mercury and appreciative Venus merged with Saturn last weekend. The new moon in your marriage house on the 6th brings a fresh perspective about some time-honored, traditional values.


Aquarius: Jan. 21 – Feb. 18The rewards trickle in slowly—e.g., a compliment on a hidden talent, appreciation for a charitable act you didn’t mention—until July 2 when the Cancer sun beams directly on your Uranus ruler. (FYI: Uranus is the planet that accounts for a high TV-Q rating! Ask Oprah and Ellen, the Aquarians.) Assume that you’ll star in the Fourth of July weekend festivities and plan accordingly. Even if you’re working hard, since romantic Venus has just entered your Leo marriage house, you’ll make time for serious canoodling.


Pisces: Feb. 19 – Mar. 19Once again the Fish and the Water Bearer are on track, each enjoying the benefits provided to and by the other. This reciprocity should be self-evident when the nostalgic Cancer sun trines independent Uranus in your sign over the July Fourth holiday. Lovely cherished memories, but interesting and exciting alternatives as well. The watery Cancer new moon on the 6th reinforces the sense that all things are possible, especially when it comes to recreation and romance. No sign does summer romance better than Pisces.
