In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Monday June 22, 2009
Planetary Outlook: Monday, June 2, 2009: The moon continues its monthly transit of dreamy, sleepy Pisces and gets ready to enter into energetic Aries. As the moon reaches the end of the zodiac, everyone’s energy begins to wane and this vibe in intensified today because Jupiter goes retrograde in Aquarius this morning. Jupiter is the planet of expansion and luck, so when it is retrograde, which is for about four months each year, it marks an extended period of contraction, retreat, and backtracking. Jupiter’s effects will be especially significant for Aquarians and Leos, but everyone will be affected. The areas ruled by Aquarius, such as the Internet, social networks, activism, friendships and technology are especially affected by the retrograde. Like all transits, this one has both negative and positive ramifications. On the positive side, people will be less reckless and more deliberate, especially when it comes to planning for the future; on the negative side, everyone is more pessimistic and less hopeful.
