Horoscopes: 22-28 June

22 May to 21 June

A life event causes you to ask yourself what you really, really want from a situation, be this romantic, financial or spiritual. Things that were once within your control may be no longer, and the long-term challenge is to discover how best to proceed. Do you turn left or turn right? New bank? New lover? New perspective?

22 June to 23 July

Is everyone determined to oppose you? It’ll feel like that as some sour-faced bureaucrat or even partner says, ‘No’ (or ‘Yes’ if you’re saying ‘No’). Now, if you’re intent on emulating a bulldozer and reducing others to rubble, you’ll be the loser. The ‘third way’ is to learn from wise counsel, then take the credit for a sensible decision.

24 July to 23 August

This is a ‘heavy’ week, when life asks you to focus your considerable brain on a better understanding of a situation – in a best-case scenario, much nonsense can be side-stepped as a result, and your mood lightens. Planet Mercury moves into Leo, giving you an advantage with words and ideas; something you write could prove highly persuasive.

24 August to 23 September

Yes, it’s you who’s digging in their heels, though you may think it’s someone else. What’s rattling you? It depends on your life situation, but in essence you’re testing your own power. No one’s going to push you around. A number of chart details point to your playing ‘judge’ and deciding you’ve had quite enough. Ready to rewrite ‘house rules’?

24 October 24 to 22 November

Your neighbours may be hearing from you. A by-law or civic regulation is being breached and the cosmos supports efforts to sort it out. Naturally, there’s always someone who thinks they know better, but with ruler Pluto on your side, it will be a very foolish person who dares to contradict you. This could also apply to your workplace

23 November to 21 December

Money has been quite a preoccupation in recent times as you adapt to new circumstances and attempt to put things on a more manageable footing. Not everyone in your circle appreciates this; perhaps a partner or other loved one has accused you of being a parsimonious old meany. As if! Count your coins for that rainy day. Stay practical. >

24 September to 23 October

Ordinarily, you’re one of the more easy-going of the star signs. You really try to find harmony among a bunch of egotists. Not this week. Full moon merges with disciplinarian Saturn, causing you to lay down the law on a domestic or family issue. If you feel rather alone on this one, well, others will come round eventually.

22 December to 20 January

It’s only natural to want to confer with one’s trusted advisers before making a move. But some decisions must be made alone because ultimately you are solely responsible – for anything from whether to part company with someone to choosing X over Y. The cosmic hint is to follow the line of your convictions – which won’t please everyone. Stay true to yourself.

21 January to 19 February

A greater interest in your health and overall wellbeing can be expected. In some, this could even get a little extreme, as you may emulate Mick Jagger’s ‘anti-gravity yoga’ (he gets suspended in a hammock while he is exercising). A sudden realisation that nothing much can stop you if you keep body and soul beautiful will do plenty to refresh your sense of life.

20 February to 20 March

Collective action has the advantage of heft – you’re more likely to realise aims if opponents understand that you’re part of a team, not just a lonesome crank. Full moon prompts a call to action, either in business or in some sort of campaign. While success cannot be assured, what you can do at least is make a useful impact.

21 March to 20 April

Being stopped in your tracks can be frustrating, especially if you’re dynamic. A matter to do with career or your status could be at issue, although, more probably, you gain by simply accepting a limitation and holding your tongue. Just remember that with powerful Pluto backing you, the slow game proves the winner. Be elegant with critics.

21 April to 21 May

The advice is to take nothing for granted when it comes to bureaucracy, granting of visas/ passports, application forms or currency conversion. You’ll avoid a lot of problems by re-checking everything, including small print and promises made over the phone. There’s an exciting atmosphere in your life, but stay grounded and be (a bit) ‘boring’.
