In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Thursday, June 18, 2009
Planetary Outlook: Thursday, June 18, 2009: Today everyone will be in an optimistic and generous mood as the Sun and Jupiter make harmonious aspects to each other early this morning. Everyone is in a better mood than usual, which will make work and chores a lot less stressful than usual. Take advantage of this easy-going vibe to ask for a favor or make headway where you were previously facing resistance. The moon’s entry into Taurus this afternoon brings the focus to finances, values, and goals for the future. It is also a good time to shop for clothing, home furnishings, artwork, or real estate.
Today’s birthday: Bettys born this day will experience a year of major expansion and good fortune when it comes to matters related to higher education, foreign travel, and spiritual and religious experiences. It is also a year of soul searching, during which you’ll discover or come to terms with the innermost emotions that you have been avoiding dealing with. This will open up your psyche for new experiences and enable you to make major progress in your personal relationships over the next year. You share your birthday with Paul McCartney, Eddie Cibrian, Carol Kane, and Roger Ebert.
Gemini: The moon’s entry into Taurus today brings your focus inward. You Geminis are such outgoing people that you sometimes neglect your innermost emotions and rarely take time out for serious self-reflection. Today is a great day for seeing a therapist, because you’ll be able to express your emotions openly and easily, and most importantly, honestly. If you don’t have a therapist, turn to a close friend or trusted confidante and spill your guts – getting your feelings off your chest will not make you feel so much better!
Cancer: The moon’s entry into Taurus marks a period during which you are more focused on your hopes and dreams for the future than usual. Today is a great day to make a list of goals for the next month. Don’t hold back – write down anything you hope to accomplish. Envisioning what you want and where you want to go is the first step toward making it a reality.
Leo: Today your focus is on your career as the moon enters Taurus and jump-starts your ambitious side. You’ll be more motivated to accomplish your professional goals now than you have been in weeks. You are very optimistic about the future and this positive attitude will actually help you make your dreams a reality.
Virgo: Today the moon enters Taurus, causing you to focus on a plan to pursue educational goals. If you’ve been thinking about taking a class to improve your skills and make you more marketable to prospective employers, today is the day to start putting that plan into action. You’ll really enjoy activities that challenge you intellectually and you are hungry to learn new skills that interest you. Consider inviting a friend or colleague to take a class with you; doing so may make it more fun and improve the likelihood that you will follow through and complete the course.
Libra: The moon enters Taurus today and causes you to focus on shared resources and assets, most likely with your husband or significant other. If you feel you have been shouldering too much of the burden when it comes to household expenses and bills, now is the time to speak up. You Libras have a tendency to be a bit too passive in your effort to keep the peace. Tonight, make a concerted effort to sit your significant other down and let him know how you are feeling.
Scorpio: The moon enters Taurus and your focus today will be on improving the state of a current romantic partnership. Things have been rocky lately, mainly because you have been asserting yourself in the relationship and pursuing your own goals independently. Your special someone may be acting out because he is threatened that your show of independence is a prelude to a break up. You need to assure him that you are simply going after what you want and that your independence is not an indication that you have any intentions of abandoning him or the relationship.
Sagittarius: Today, as the moon enters Taurus, you are hopeful and positive especially when it comes to your daily routine, in particular, your job situation. If you are employed and have been unhappy at work, you’ll make some necessary changes that will make your daily grind less or a chore. If you are looking for work, today could be the day you get your lucky break, so be sure to answer your e-mails and phone – it could be a prospective employer calling!
Capricorn: Today the moon enters Taurus and stimulates your desire to express yourself creatively. Take some time out this afternoon to channel your artistic inclination into a project that you’ve had on the back burner for a while. You’ll be able to make significant progress, especially if you enlist the help of a colleague and collaborate.
Aquarius: The moon’s entry into Taurus brings your attention to your domestic scene and motivates you to make improvements to both the physical space as well as the atmosphere. Enlist the help of family members and put them to work; cleaning up the house and getting rid of clutter will allow new energy to flow throughout not just your home, but also all your lives. You’ll be quite satisfied and feel the good vibes as soon as you are done.
Pisces: The moon enters Taurus today and stimulates your mental faculties. You’ll be full of new ideas, especially when it comes to your domestic situation. Spend time with siblings, family, or neighbors, and make a plan for improving your community. You may participate in a group activity that is cause-oriented and you’ll enjoy it a lot more than your naturally shy Pisces personality would have thought.
Aries: The moon’s entry into Taurus brings finances to your attention. You may have been neglecting the practical side of life lately to focus more on romance and creative endeavors, but today you’ll have to take care of pressing money matters, such as paying bills, before you encounter major problems. Don’t procrastinate any longer or you will definitely regret it.
Taurus: The moon enters your Sun sign, Taurus, today, which marks your monthly lunar cycle high. This is a three day period during which you are more self-confident, motivated, and sure of yourself than usual and indicates the best time of the month for putting yourself first. You Tauruses are such natural nurturers that sometimes you neglect your own needs in favor of tending to those of others. Today you should make your desires and goals your top priority.
