Forecasts for week beginning June 22, 2013.
By Jonathan Cainer
This week brings a rare Supermoon Solstice. The Moon’s complicated orbit means it can be nearer to (or further from) us by up to 30,000 miles. When it is at Perigee (closest to the Earth) it can appear up to 14 per cent larger and 30 per cent brighter. Some people link this to volcanoes and earthquakes. I wouldn’t go so far, but I do predict that some suppressed passions may erupt. And given that, at Solstice, many emotional processes seem to reach a standstill before changing direction, some folk may yet end up feeling as if the earth has moved for them!
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Every time you think you know what’s going on, you have to stop and think again. You’re being told something that cannot be entirely true… but the person who is telling you this entirely believes their own story. This is not so much a deliberate deception as an enthusiastic iteration of an ill-informed opinion! This solstice week, it is important to trust your own understanding of a matter, no matter how much you seem to be under pressure just to go along with what everyone else seems to feel must be right.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
Are you pushing the right buttons? Are you asking the right questions? We all have a terrible tendency to do what we think others expect of us. We don’t think for ourselves. We try to take refuge from fears and worries by ‘fitting in’ with the folk around us. At such times, our idiosyncrasies begin to seem like liabilities. They become reasons why we could be singled out and criticised. But this solstice week, you must not apologise for who you are and what you are. Your individuality is a strength not weakness.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
We may – or may not – be able to make dreams come true just by believing that, somehow, they can. One thing is for sure, though, if we don’t believe, we make it far less likely. This solstice week, a full Moon invites you to take a fresh look at an old idea. You have been doubtful and dubious for quite some while about whether a notion is truly feasible. Do you want it to be possible? Or are you just looking for an excuse? An easy reason to drop the whole thing? First, be clear. Then, you will be successful.
CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
Why does it sometimes feel as if our guardian angel has deserted us? Because guardian angels are frequently required to attend emergency conferences. They have to negotiate with other angels and thrash out complicated deals involving priority of need or conflict of interest. They return, clutching their dispensation proudly in their ethereal hand, only to discover that, in the meantime, we have made new choices for which they must compensate. Be still and have faith this week. Much that seems wrong will come right.
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
We put a man on the Moon in 1969. Or at least, most people believe we did. Others passionately believe that we didn’t. But one thing that remains totally unbelievable about the Apollo mission is the fact that it didn’t put a woman on the surface of that satellite. What an outrageous omission! In a similar way, the solstice sky suggests you need not to get so caught up in one debate that you can’t see the wider implications of a much bigger matter – one that has the potential to greatly change your life for the better.
VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
‘Que sera sera, whatever will be, will be, the future’s not ours to see…’ I’ve quoted this song several times lately in different forecasts. It’s no wonder so many people take a passive approach to life if they hum such melodies and allow such words to echo through their minds. The future IS yours to see. And it is yours to change, too, if you don’t like what you see! So, first look… and then look at what constructive steps you can take to alter what you don’t like the look of. This could yet prove a powerful week for you.
LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
It often seems as if the more success we attain in one area of life, the less inspiring our outlook becomes in another. This solstice week, you yearn to redress some agonising imbalance, but you’re reluctant to let go of a hard-won advantage. Unfortunately, you can’t have it both ways, or, at least, you can’t yet. Soon, it may well be a different story. For now, though, you must compromise in one department for the sake of progress in another. Trust, this week, that you’re on safe enough ground to take a small risk.
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
The solstice suggests we are beginning to enter a different cosmic climate. You can look around and see the evidence of a new era dawning with your own eyes. If it’s not automatically visible, probe a little. Try the handles of doors that were previously locked. Make an effort to do what you had given up all hope of ever being able to do. You’re not guaranteed success at every turn, but you are entitled to expect more success than you have had of late. It’s all a question of pushing aside doubt and negativity.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
Why must life be difficult? Why can’t we all just sail smoothly through the ocean of experience? You may as well ask why we have to have rain or why it can’t be always day, never night? Without a down, how would we ever appreciate the meaning of an up? Without a challenge, why would we ever bother to bring about a change? Without doubt, how would we ever appreciate certainty? You have been through a lot lately but this solstice week you will start to see how valuable your recent experiences have been.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
‘All the world’s a stage,’ or so, at least, Shakespeare insisted. He, though, was a professional writer. If he needed a script, he could just make one up. We less eloquent mortals don’t always know what we’re supposed to say or do when we are dealing with life’s challenging factors. You may feel that you ought to be delivering some carefully-rehearsed soliloquy in order to convey a crucial, sensitive message properly. Not so. You just need to say something sincere and simple this solstice week. You will yet be heard!
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
In theory, your outlook is excellent. Why then, might this week turn out to be less than ideal? Because you’ve got, ‘the kind of problem you should consider yourself lucky to have’ or ‘the sort of trouble that brings success!’ Sometimes we need a little cosmic turbulence to keep us productively occupied. When we’ve got a challenge, we’ve got an opportunity. Don’t think too long or hard about something that seems ‘wrong’ or you may end up trying too hard to fix something that isn’t really broken in the first place.
PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
“A ‘No’ uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a ‘Yes’ merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.” Mahatma Gandhi didn’t just say a lot of good things; he did a lot of good things. He lived according to his deepest belief… that no matter how wrong or oppressive the force a person is fighting, it is always possible to create positive change without violence. This week, you’ve got to follow principles that make sense to you. Be fair and be sincere and you’ll yet be successful.
