“Money itself isn’t lost or made, it’s simply transferred from one perception to another.”
Lightning is a startling wake-up call, shockingly reminiscent of Michael Douglas’ unscrupulous role as a corporate raider in the 1987 film, Wall Street; the archetypal story of greed, unscrupulous deals, and an excess of wealth and power.
It’s not that anyone is “evil.” So-called ‘bad apples” are a product of rotten barrels, like greed.
America, land of the free, gets some needed CPR from lightning-bolt Uranus, who aims at the chains on our prison doors. And, if this invitation to free ourselves is ignored, all that energy can just as quickly blow things up!
A shockingly reckless day this Wednesday is full of astrological earthquakes. Emotional excess, restlessness and discontent with the status quo are magnified under the Cancer Sun. The revolutionary transformations shaking the ground under your feet can inspire you to stand up for your rights, or apathy and ignorance will detour this power to destructive ends.
♡ Date Night: Venus in Leo and Mars in Gemini
Love is grand! Sensational and saucy romance, with everyone in dramatic drag, puts this date night theatrically over the Moon! Saturday night is cozy and comfortable. Optimism and joy fill the warm summer’s breeze. Look for the face of a very happy man in the moon.
The Force of freedom is with you.
Here’s your horoscope for the week of June 30-July 6, 2013:
(★ Astrology Wonks see bottom of page)
Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
Wide, wide awake and loaded with originality. The week starts with your feelings and intuition on high alert with the Moon in your sign. You’re ready to light a fire under the powerfully planted old conditioning from childhood. In a no-nonsense mood, you challenge Darth Vader and discover you have the biggest lightsaber! Voltage soars when you get repeated lightning bolts running through your field of dreams and imagination. By Saturday, you’re subdued. Whew!
Taurus ♉ (April 20-May 20)
Antsy and itchy. Not your favorite feelings. Still, with your Taurus calm, you can avoid what would otherwise be a downright pissy mood! Don’t make big decisions ‘til Tuesday when your “green thumb” blossoms again and your midas touch returns. You cannot go wrong investing in real estate, buying or selling. Your property will grow in value until July, 2014. Signing on the dotted line is best after July 13th, 2013. Saturday is a perfect day for lavish parties and indulgences. You have an easy rapport with family, and wealth.
Gemini ♊ (May 21-June 20)
Not that you need more stimulation, but you get it as this week begins. Your wake-up call rings in your house of resources. You have treasures there that you can now fully utilize; teaching, publishing, and an optimistic mental attitude. Your natural curiosity turns to cultural trends and innovative communications expressed through your writing. Your inspiration comes either through creative visualization or dreams. Warrior Mars (in Gemini) adds vivid color to your mental imagery until July 13th. When the Moon juggles her way into Gemini at 2:22 AM, PDT, this Thursday, you’ll have over two days of heightened perception. Let yourself daydream in quiet spaces, and write it down.
Cancer ♋ (June 21-July 21)
Cranky and out of sorts? Only for Sunday and Monday, then a little less heat in the kitchen is welcomed, along with some fresh blueberries rolled in chocolate. Your solar power is increasing throughout this week, culminating Saturday when your Sun is joined by an intuitive Moon, a cornucopia of kindness from Jupiter, and mental Mercury with very personal deep-seated messages. You’ve set your sails for the far horizon, where a new happiness is just waiting for you to show up (which you’re going to do in spades starting July 13th)!
Leo ♌ (July 22-August 22)
It may feel impulsive, but those urges you start the week with should be honored. Flashes of genius that seem quirky are just that. Your insights are right-brained, non-linear and very valuable. You fall off a pink cloud in your relationships, but you’ll actually benefit from this sobering up. Even if your pride is bruised, Venus (now in Leo) will soothe with a lavish warmheartedness and oodles of affection. You’re entering the phase of letting go that precedes your birthday. Crisis, probably quite a few, really does mean opportunity.
Virgo ♍ (August 23-September 22)
You can’t rely on your feelings as your guide. Even your intuition is on such overload that it can’t be trusted. Solution? Make no decisions by yourself until Monday evening. Tuesday finds you able to organize your life again and sort the intense revelations scattered around you. Search your reasoning for answers. Consider how you wield your personal power. You’ll get an up close and very personal demonstration of how others perceive you, and a challenge to balance home and career.
Libra ♎ (September 23-October 22)
Erratic emotions have you changing your tune like a disc jockey on speed! If you can channel this free wheeling creativity, new doors in your perception will open. What’s it all about? Your intuition (Moon), already on fire, gets hit with repeated jolts of lightning. It could mean fried nerves for the beginning of your week, but then it turns to brilliant intuitive flashes. Venus, her passions warmed up in Leo, forms a tense relationship with too-serious Saturn. This pair together often signals a “goodbye.”
Scorpio ♏ (October 23-November 21)
Emotions are usually your reliable friend, but this week starts with your intuitive clairvoyance taking in more that you can cipher. Jupiter’s generosity and benevolence are now landing in your ninth solar house of the higher mind. This can bring you the role of being a spiritual teacher, and/or seeking out further education in the realms of a new spirituality. Either way, you have started a one year journey of travel to foreign places, foreign ideals. Notice Wednesday for earth shattering innovations, and Saturday for the sense that all is well and in it’s right place.
Sagittarius ♐ (November 22-December 20)
Jolts of intense impulses to change the scenery, change your mind, or change just for the sake of starting an adventure are designed to blast you off into unexpected territory. Since you’re traveling in the realms of the higher mind, from your positive perspective you know people aren’t bad apples, they’ve just fallen into rotten barrells. You can’t see it under Darth Vader’s mask, but he has some good intentions. He just wants you to get to the bottom of what ails you. Naked truth. It’s your favorite thing!
Capricorn ♑ (December 21-January 19)
Irritable and unusually restless; it wakes you up to issues in your family relationships. Tuesday a Taurus Moon and a Cancer Sun together make for a very comfortable break--take it. Soak in some of life’s pleasures. You have a sweet tooth for anything pleasurable, lovely to look at, and rich around the edges. Resistance to change, a stubborn digging your heels in, will restrict the good fortune you have right now; it requires a playful spontaneity. Luck comes to your through marriage and partnerships because generous Jupiter inspires you to new kind of openness and benevolence.
Aquarius ♒ (January 20-February 17)
Your wake-up call arrives with an easy listening ringtone. The electric noise of sudden, startling changes hits you at a lower, more understandable volume that allows you to hear the cries for help all around you. You’ve just started a one year journey with Jupiter in which you’ll pour the milk of human kindness out for everyone to drink and to heal. You’re in service to others, more than at any other time of your life. Your interest in medical missions, natural foods and remedies, will soar. Because so much energy this week is gathering in the reclusive domain of Cancer, your motives may not be understood and communications may be awkward. Take nothing personally.
Pisces ♓ (February 18-March 19)
Got a tune you don’t even like stuck in your head? Lots of gut-level information is churning around you and inside you. Butterflies in your stomach, or out and out nausea, are your wake up call to pay more attention to how you feel. Your imagination is so heightened right now, that inattention to your physical needs could leave you sick and tired. Generous Jupiter has started a one year sojourn in your solar house of creativity and romance, bringing you happiness with your partner and a cornucopia of talent in the arts. Jupiter carries karmic “lessons” for Pisces relating to not overextending yourself. With this as a cautionary word, you can have good fortune through your investments. Saturday is a blessed day for you.
