Aquarius (January 20- February 18)
Your June Horoscope by Susan Miller
Aquarius Horoscope for June 2013
By Susan Miller
June could be your very favorite month of the year. It has a little of everything, and all the news that will come to you should be really good news. Romance, career, money, and creativity – with so much going on it is hard to know where to start!
Let’s begin first with June 1, when the mighty Sun will receive a friendly golden beam from Uranus, the planet that brings surprises, that is also your ruler. (When your ruler is involved, that’s news, so always pay a lot of attention when I mention Uranus for you!) Over the weekend of June 1-2, you may be on a quick trip and fully enjoying yourself. If you have a partner, he or she will be with you and delighting you every step of the way. I am happy to report that the first weekend of the month will be so much fun, for you have had a lot of serious things to think about lately, and you sorely need a change of pace. This first weekend seems to set the pace for things to come.
A bigger event will arrive on June 8, the new moon in Gemini, 18 degrees, in your fifth house of love. New moons open new paths, and this one will be a very strong and beneficial one for you. The magnificent new moon will make her entrance flanked with the Sun, Mars, and Jupiter, and together the new moon (including the new moon) will stage a blowout party for Jupiter, who is soon to leave Gemini for Cancer at month’s end.
Jupiter first arrived in your solar fifth house of love and romance on June 11, 2012 last year, and was working hard to help you find the love of your life, or if you already have found that person, to find the time to thoroughly enjoy one another and to deepen your relationship. Jupiter spends one year in each sign and house of the horoscope, so he won’t have time to come back to Gemini and your fifth house again until 2024.
If you are saying, “Wait! I’ve been saddled with a lot of work, and I have barely have had time to do anything other than keep up – Jupiter can’t be leaving!” You HAVE been busy with career (we will get to that in a minute) but there is no reason to feel disappointed, for you will get more opportunities from Jupiter and other planets to find love and joy in months and years ahead. However, there is BIG reason to center your attention on this month, for Jupiter in Gemini has saved his very best romantic energies for his big celebration this month, June 2013.
With four important heavenly bodies in your most romantic house – something you’ve not seen in years – you’ll be ready for fun and love. The fact that Mars is among the group in your fifth house says that you are now beginning an important two-year cycle in matters of the heart – one that could take you into a very new, important and very warm place in the future.
If you are attached, you may now discuss, plan for, and try for a baby, and your timing could not be better. You may assume you will have to try for months to have a baby, but many Aquarians will be celebrating pregnancy in June. If you have a child, there is a strong chance you will get good news about that child this month. (These areas of good fortune are not mutually exclusive – you may hear good news on lots of levels.) With Jupiter so close, the planet of good fortune and happiness, news this month is likely to thrill you.
Here is information you need to know: You can have the best planet, such as you have had all year, Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, in your romantic house for a year, but without precisely the right new moon to unlock its goodies, it is hard to access that planet’s goodness. You have all the right elements happening now, so there’s no reason to delay. If you say that you have already met your one true love, then your individual chart, that I cannot see, has helped you fine one another, and the fact that you met between June 2012 and June 2013 is very significant – it says you are likely to be very happy together.
The message is clear, you need to circulate a lot this month, from June 1 to 23, but especially from June 10 to 20, the time the new moon will be most active. There’s a whole world out there waiting for you to discover. This will be the most romantic month for you, hands down!
Why do I say wait a few days after the new moon, when I rarely say that? Usually I would say to circulate in earnest on the day of the new moon, June 8, but there is a reason to hold back a few days. Mercury and Gemini rule your solar fifth house, ruling love, pregnancy, children, and creativity. On the date of the new moon, June 8, coincidentally Mercury will have a strong argument with Uranus, so I feel it will be safer to step aside that day and make your biggest initiations starting June 10, a Monday, and continuing to June 19 or 20. The actions you take in a new moon period will affect you for a year or more.
If you work in a creative field and are paid for your ideas, a new project will likely come up now as a result of all this sparkling energy in your fifth house, and the new project will be a delicious one for you. It will very likely have your name written all over it, and hone in on your talents. In fact, this project seems tailor made for you, and only you. It behooves you to pitch your creative ideas early this month, to get approvals in time to start it on June 10.
If your birthday falls on February 6, plus or minus five days, you will feel and benefit from this new moon the most. Wow. If you were not born anywhere near February 6, if you have your chart, see if you have a planet, moon, or rising at 18 degrees in Aquarius, Gemini, Libra, Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius. That planet will be energized too by the new moon, so you are likely to hear something that makes you happy. Jot down a few notes afterward – you are likely to have something to celebrate.
Wait, there’s MORE, much, much more!
On top of this, you have the luckiest day of the year coming up when Jupiter aligns with the Sun on June 19, making for what I always call the luckiest day of the year! Where will Jupiter and the Sun align? Your fifth house of true love, children, and creativity, the same house I have been talking about for you!
Yes, this month, and these two heavenly bodies, the Sun and Jupiter, will meet in alignment in Gemini at 28 degrees 31 minutes, at the very end of Jupiter’s visit. (All planets go until 29 degrees 59 minutes, and when they move beyond that, they go to 0 degrees 00 minutes of the next sign – in this case, that is what will happen when Jupiter moves to Cancer.) Imagine, the mighty Sun and the giver of gifts and luck, Jupiter, will have their annual meeting this year in Gemini, in your house of true love, children, and pregnancy. It is a little like you just won the cosmic jackpot for love, and also to find effective ways to show off, and be prized for, your creativity!
There is something else ironic about the degree that the Sun and Jupiter is meeting. Last year, there was a new moon in your true love sector on June 19, 2012, at precisely 28 degrees 43 minutes. Now that is the same place in the heavens that the Sun and Jupiter are meeting. There has to be some significance to this, as the universe does not tend to send coincidences when it speaks mathematically. I am very excited about this fact, and I will be watching your posts on Twitter to see how this all affects you, especially if you can find a link between mid-June 2012 and this month. I am @AstrologyZone, so do stop by.
It will be important to note what time the alignment of the Sun and Jupiter on June 19 will occur in the city where you live, or where you will expect to be on that day. If you go to the world clock online, see what time it is for you at noon EDT on June 19 in New York. Say, if you are in Los Angeles, it will be 9:00 AM PDT for you when this alignment occurs. If your case, if you want to sign papers on that day, you would have to schedule a breakfast meeting with your colleague, so that you could sign just before 9:00 AM, giving you a little time to talk.
If you live in Asia, for example, or Australia, it is likely June 19 will move to June 20, as many readers who live far from the US consistently find that they have an extra day to take advantage of the energy of the aspects I name.
Here is another fact you will want to know: always plan your big initiations for the day close to the alignment, just as it is about to peak, but has not yet peaked. Imagine Jupiter and the Sun walking toward each other as they will do when they have their New York lunchtime meeting – that’s when you act – not later, when they are back out on the sidewalk after the lunch is over, saying goodbye and about to turn their separate ways. You should not act AFTER the aspect has peaked and is in the process of separating and deflating. You need the aspect to be growing greater, not lesser, and this is true of any good aspect.
For this reason, I suggest you choose June 18 to plan your biggest social events, proposals, and meetings, so that you don’t have to fuss with choosing the right time of day. June 18, and to a slightly lesser degree, June 17, will also be strong days and close enough to take full advantage. Here you have a choice: June 17, 18, or 19 (and if you live far from the US, June 20).
Finally, if your birthday falls on February 17 or 18, the Sun will be meeting Jupiter in direct, ideal friendly angle to your Sun, so you should receive exceptional luck on June 17, 18, and 19. Not born on February 17 or 18? Then check your natal horoscope to see if you have any planets at 28 or 29 degrees of Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius, or, second in the pecking order, Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius. If you do, you will also have something special to celebrate.
When it comes to your career, a lot of good things are about to happen in June and July, for an exceedingly rare golden triangle is about to appear in the heavens, linking all water signs: Saturn in Scorpio in your tenth house of honors, awards, achievement and fame; to Venus and Mercury in your sixth house of workaday projects; and to the last leg of the triangle, to Neptune in your house of salary. As you see, the puzzle is fitting nicely into place. A project you are working on now appears to have the power to lift your reputation and to bring you considerable money, too. Take projects seriously this month and next – you are making quite a name for yourself and preparing to accept very heavy responsibility and a title to match it in the months to come.
Mercury will begin to go retrograde on June 26 until June 30, so it’s clear you will make your best, most amazing progress in the first three weeks of June. If you need to buy a computer or other electronic item, do so quickly in early June – you do not want to run too close to the start of the retrograde on June 26. I always allow a LOT of time between the day I shop for any important items and the start of the retrograde.
It is also wise to hold back on accepting a new job offer, UNLESS you are accepting it from a former boss who you used to work with – in that case, you started the relationship a long time ago and you would be simply extending a warm, close relationship. (No, if you just interviewed for the job on say, June 11, it does not represent any sort of historical relationship! Ha, ha, readers are always trying to get me to work around Mercury retrograde, but it does not work that way.)
I am realistic however, and if you have not worked in a long time and get an offer, then by all means take it. Realize the job description may change radically later, or for that or other reasons make you reassess the job and you may want to leave. Even so, it is easier to get a new job after you already have one. You can always find another, and it’s nice to know you are being paid while you keep your eyes open for your next position.
At the full moon June 23 in Capricorn, 2 degrees, you may be a little tired, so plan a very restful, and possibly romantic weekend. All full moons have an area of influence of plus or minus four days. Saturn will be nicely angled to this full moon from your house of fame, and Neptune will be friendly from your money house too, so an important project may be done. At this point in the month, you may just want to put your feet up. You are clearly getting lots of accolades, so see if you can get away and treat yourself to a fun weekend out of town.
Romantically, as you have already seen, you will be a “10” – alluring, charismatic, memorable, and unstoppable. Mars will continue to light your house of love from the May 31 to July 13. (One difficult day for new love may be June 12, when Venus and Uranus won’t get along at all. I am sorry to report this to you – it’s Valentine’s Day in Brazil.)
Having Mars with you until July 13 is great news, for an environment of love and support that will envelop you in June will continue a bit in July, like a beautiful perfume, or a song that you love and can’t quite stop humming. This is a very special month for you, dear Aquarius.
Aquarius seems to have been short-changed in the romance department over recent years, but not in June. The new moon in Gemini on June 8 comes with an entourage of friendly, powerful planets, including the Sun (self-determination), Mars (action), and Jupiter (good fortune). Rarely have you had such an ideal month for fostering a new relationship or for rekindling an existing one that is still dear to you. This is the last month Jupiter will be in your fifth house of true love in this decade, for this planet of happiness is set to leave June 25, having been with you a year and not due to return to this part of your chart until 2024. While you will have many opportunities to find love in intervening years, it may not be quite as easy as it will be for you to find the right love for you, as it will in June.
If you feel Jupiter has not done enough for you, this month will be different and may stand out, for Jupiter will be boosted by so much planetary energy. Do all you can to leave the office and to socialize as much as possible. If you start a new and intriguing relationship now, it may last a very long time, possibly forever.
Uranus will be in fine angle to this new moon and suggests travel will enhance possibilities for enjoying sweet romance. (After all, Uranus is your ruler, and “counts” quite a bit when in aspect to a new moon.) You need not travel far, or spend a great deal of money to have fun. Just do your part to show your face to the world, and all the while, be open to new types. Be careful not to say things that you later regret; with Mercury, planet of speech, in a volatile position to Uranus, you may unconsciously push your new romantic interest away on June 8 due to a tough aspect that day. A new moon, ironically occurring on June 8 too, will be operative for ten days, and the actions you take during that time can affect you for a very long time, possibly forever.
If you meet someone, don’t rush the relationship – go slowly and build a firm foundation. Mercury rules all these planets in Gemini, and with Uranus in hard angle to Mercury at the new moon, you may find the relationship moves forward too fast and then as suddenly as it began, goes out in a puff of smoke. Enjoy the slow process of getting to know your new romantic interest. If you hope to conceive or adopt a baby, start the process – this month may make that dream a reality.
At work, responsibilities have been increasing, and will likely increase even more by the eclipses in November, a time when a new, powerful position may be yours. In the meantime, if you are in a creative field, the first three weeks of June will be ideal for brainstorming and working on your craft. Do so now, and you’ll likely turn out some of the best work you’ve done in over a year. Another reason to focus on your work is that, in June, you’ll be innovative and original in all the ideas and artistic expressions you contribute.
If you are not in a creative field, you will still be favored once Jupiter moves into Cancer on June 25, to stay until July 16, 2014. Jupiter will see that you get the kind of assignments that lead you up the ladder of success, with each one allowing you an ideal way to show off your talents. Dear Aquarius, when it comes to career, it is onward and upward.
Your health should also improve with Jupiter in Cancer as of June 25 onward, and if you’ve hoped to lose a few pounds, you will be able to institute a new lifestyle that not only leads you to a slimmer “you” but a fitter “you” as well. If you’ve had a health condition that has plagued you, seek help as you may find a practitioner that is aware of ways to treat you. You may find out a new medical breakthrough might apply to you and offer relief. I had not mentioned what Jupiter in Cancer would bring you in the main body of the report above, so I am adding this here in the summary. You see, you have much to look forward to now!
The full moon in Capricorn on June 23 may find you needing some R&R. It will be a busy, exciting month, with many people to see and fun things to do. It’s possible that by this weekend, you’ll be tuckered out. If you hope to take a getaway, choose a beautiful mountainous setting that offers plenty of privacy, fresh air, and sunshine.
Dates to Note: Aquarius
Most Romantic Dates: June 1-2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 17-19 (spectacular), and 21-22.
Are you an attached Aquarius? June 1-2 may be filled with joy. Plan a weekend!
The weekend of June 15-16 should be dazzling and surprisingly special too, again, especially if you travel. This comes thanks to Mars in perfect angle to Uranus, your ruling planet.
A tough day for love will be when Venus will be at odds with your ruler, Uranus June 12.
When Jupiter leaves your house of love and romance, Jupiter will head to your house of health and stay a year, from June 25, 2013 to July 16, 2014.
Just as Jupiter is set to leave, after a year’s stay, he will bring one more shot at love with the new moon, June 8 plus two weeks. Uranus will be well angled to the new moon, so a meeting may come quite surprisingly.
Travel enhances your possibilities of finding romance this month, especially over the weekend of June 1-2
Mars will remain in your true love sector all month, bringing lots of opportunities to enjoy love throughout the month, even after Jupiter leaves. Mars comes by once every two years – he is with you now, so make the most of his help!
Over the weekend of June 22-23, plan to spend a relaxing weekend, with nothing pressing on your schedule. You will need to recharge your batteries and build up your strength.
Mercury will be retrograde June 26 to July 20.
