Forecasts for week beginning Saturday, May 31, 2014.

By Jonathan Cainer

Mercury turns retrograde for about three weeks at a time, two or three times a year. This happens in June and it’s nothing to worry about, no reason to cancel commercial transactions or to avoid any activity that you might normally engage in. But to hear some people speak on the subject, you would think it was when the ides of March caused the Curse of The Mummy to unleash the Wrath of The Abominable Snowman! We might, though, expect a few emails to go astray, some travel plans to need rearranging and some old ideas to need rethinking.

ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
If, in June, you climb to the height of your inner wisdom and extend the arm of your personal power, you will summon strength and clarity, becoming a towering beacon of hope that others flock towards from far and wide. You will be able to offer leadership and command respect, even from those who normally disagree with you. And to make that happen? Just one thing is needed. A willingness, first, to face an issue from your past that still pains you when you think about it. Find that courage and all else you need, will find you!

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
When the sun is shining brightly, even the most powerful light bulb becomes irrelevant. But when it’s dark, even a tiny candle will blaze out like a beacon. How important is this month’s biggest development? That depends on how keen you are to experience change. To a person who is used to dealing with a deluge, this is a trickle. To someone in the midst of a drought, it is a flood. What does this mean to you? As much as you need it to mean. Don’t ‘wish for more,’ just find a way to make more out of what you are being given.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
In June, you will find yourself drawing on skills and experiences that you had almost forgotten you ever attained. But like a great artist, a fine scientist or a natural performer, you are never going to lose the magic that makes you special. You’ve always had what it takes and you’ve still got it now. Are you equal to the task? Of course. Will you need to go beyond wherever you have been before? Quite possibly. But if you treat the challenge arising before you as an opportunity to shine, your inner star won’t let you down.

CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
When we know something, we tend to assume that the rest of the world knows it too. If it is obvious to you, why should it not be obvious to everyone else? It’s amazing, though, how often two people who work in the same office or live in the same house can each have access to information that the other knows nothing about. Not until a very specific question is raised, does this ever come to light. In June, you will find yourself needing the answer to a question. The person who can tell you is nearer than you think.

LEO (July 24 – August 23)
You may be wading through deep water, but you have a diving suit. Much may be up in the air, but you have a parachute. Things may be wrong, but you have the power to put them right. Maybe that is going to be the problem for you in June. Maybe you will secretly wish that you did not have that power. Perhaps you will find that you prefer to have someone else call all the shots and make all the choices. Well, you can’t do that. You are in charge or, if you are not, you need to take charge! That is nothing to worry about.

VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
A fundamental factor needs to be fixed. That is partly why you feel perplexed. Something doesn’t look right or feel right. You suspect the answer is to make some kind of superficial adjustment. This, though, is not really working. The root of the problem lies further back. It is not complicated. Nor is it especially difficult to fix. Life, in June, will push you to look at what you have been trying to ignore. Once you have seen it in more detail you will understand it better. Then you will have the way to set it all straight at last.

LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
Welcome to the future. Now, what do you want it to be like? It is not quite possible to make a wish and have it come instantly true – but you may just find that ambitions identified in June, have a slow-burning fuse that eventually ignites the spark of satisfaction that only a fulfilled aspiration can bring. Some confusion surrounds you at the moment. Where this is coming from others, there may be a limit to what you can do. But your own confusion you can easily cure. You just have to be completely honest with yourself.

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
They say that we shouldn’t push our luck. They are not always right about that. Think about when a car has a flat battery. Often, if you give it a good push, then drop it in gear, you can get it started. Of course, this doesn’t work with automatics. But then, fortune is rarely automatic. The engine of this machine depends very much on the choices we make. When we expend effort, we can vastly increase the rate at which it turns. It’s fine to push your luck today. Just be a little careful that you don’t push it too far in June.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
Any victory will be hollow (and temporary) if it leaves someone else suffering the agony of defeat. Your first priority, in June, is to see that. You don’t have to become best buddies with an opponent, nor must you force yourself to love a situation you find difficult. But there must be some kind of compromise. Right now, the common enemy to unite against is ‘the danger to all sides that a continued dispute will bring.’ Don’t be callous. Err on the side of kindness. But do be strong when you need to be. All will be well.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
In June, your powers of perception and your sense of perspective are both enhanced. Not only can you tell the wood from the trees, you can also gain clues from tiny bits of bark. But there are still limits to what you can see, especially about yourself. Whilst you may be about to make many valuable discoveries, you could fail to notice how a key relationship is coming under pressure – perhaps as a direct result of you understanding something that is best allowed to remain a mystery. Keep your eyes open, but not too wide.

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
There is always someone who will disapprove. There is always, too, someone who will damn you with faint praise, and then go on to explain that, ‘what you really should have done is this’. Folk don’t always mean to disempower each other when they make such observations. But it is very difficult for anyone to feel confident when they are surrounded by doubters and detractors. In your life, during the month ahead, there is one very solid source of support. Appreciate this properly and make more of it.

PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
When babies are born, do they arrive in this world with a long list of things to worry about? Do toddlers turn to one another and say, ‘I would love to play but I am far too busy.’ Tension is learned behaviour. We see others giving themselves a hard time and inadvertently we copy them. Just as kids think that it is cool to smoke, we imagine that it is a sign of adulthood to be harassed. You have absolutely no need or reason to be anxious about anything in June. This month brings your chance to grow younger and grow wiser.
