Celestial Gossip and June 2009 Astrology Forecast

By Linda Merlino

GEMINI loves to talk. The truth is told Gemini never shuts up. He or she can speak walking, running, eating, making love and sleeping. The best part is no one seems bothered by the chatter except for maybe Scorpios, and Gemini usually steers clear of them.

A Gemini most likely had a hand in creating the cell phone. This wireless bit of technology has become his or her best friend. Because of the magical powers of Mercury, the fabled messenger to the gods, Gemini can now talk while driving, flying and the like; hands free of course because Gemini likes to express while speaking.

Forever moving, Gemini can be restless and keep up a hectic pace. He or she has a spontaneous spirit that loves to sprinkle comic relief whenever possible. Born with a twin personality, Gemini can enlist their other half when needed. Their duality serves him or her best when he or she gets into a rut and needs to shift energy. Gifted with a short attention span, some of the less evolved Gemini's can be scattered and unfocused.

If you love a Gemini remember that he or she gets bored easily. Please...nothing ordinary. Gemini has a hundred balls in the air and you have to keep up with each one. Do attempt to manage all the little things that your Gemini mate has no time for and complete all the projects he or she begins but never finishes. The quickest entrance to a Gemini heart is through poetry and song. Mail him or her love letters and call everyday. Feed his or her restless mind and laugh at those one line quips. Grow young with your Gemini sweetheart and life will be one continuous discovery.

Sky watch: Mercury stopped dancing backward on the 31st of May...whew. What a wild rumba that was for everyone. June plays no funny stuff -- our minds, our hearts and our actions should be aligned. Venus, Mars and Mercury are aligned until mid-month; what we are is more important then how we spend our money and resources.

Astrology Forecast for June

ARIES (March 21-April 20) Aries has the brief alignment of the three personal planets in a place that asks an individual to look at their self esteem and how he or she equates to what they are and with what they possess. There is a tactile quality to this energy, a need to hold on to what we have and there is a desire to own more. Cosmic Advice: Aries must resist the impulse to spend without first determining the long term effect. You are not sharing with a partner; this is a time to learn lessons of being an individual.

TAURUS (April 21-May 20) Taurus is very upfront this month. With the alignment in Taurus you have the opportunity to speak and be heard, to get what you desire and to go forward with the pursuit of your needs. Harness this energy, as it will be brief. Cosmic Advice: Once the energy passes you will have the residual comfort of knowing yourself inside and out.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Gemini must store the energy of this alignment away. There is much in the subconscious and even more behind the scenes. Preparing his or her self for the future begins with making a plan and this is the time for such things. Cosmic Advice: Mid-month you can speak in your own comfort zone. Who you are and what you need to do is in the planning stages. Put yourself in the company of friends and enjoy new goals and dreams.

CANCER (June 22-July 22) Cancer finds opportunity in the alignment of Taurus planets. Friends are a source of inspiration and a renewal of dreams and hopes. Career and profession are rich with possibilities and rewards. Cosmic Advice: There are continued lessons to be learned from siblings and family; something to gain and something to give up. The taskmaster is keeping score in this area of your life, grounding you and keeping you from being spontaneous.

LEO (July 23-August 22) Leo struggles with the Taurus lineup because both forms of energy are so fixed and unwilling to change. There is some challenge in the professional arena, something that smacks of money and partnership and who said what, when. Remember that this is brief and for resolution you must act upon your instincts. Cosmic Advice: Your good fortune remains rooted to a connection of partnership, despite what comes across the board. Write down your hopes and dreams; keep them stuck to the fridge so you can view them everyday.

VIRGO (August 23-September 22) Virgo is hampered by the feeling of knowing that there is much in the way of moving forward. The effort of having this over that, of a choice not always the one you selected, is paramount. The line-up of Taurus planets has a mellow compliance with the inner working of Virgo. There is an easy flow, a settled feeling that is generated by the power of three together. Cosmic Advice: If travel is on your agenda things will go well. Legal issues and a connection to those in professions dealing with the law or higher education should be positive.

LIBRA (September 23-October 22) Libra is working to offset the difficult challenge of this alignment. You must watch your health; you must recognize that what you do for others may not be the best for yourself. What you have carved out for yourself may not happen and this requires adjustments. Cosmic Advice: Rely on partnership or on a loved one to keep you in balance.

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21) Scorpio can do nothing for his or herself by the way of acting as an individual. All of the energy of these planets put you in the place of keeping someone else in balance, of being the support system. Taurus planets are your opposition. So it is about balance. Cosmic Advice: Partnership issues are where you must focus.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23-December 21) Sagittarius struggles with adjustments. Health issues are marked by the line-up of these Taurus planets. Recovery from an illness or surgical procedures will be high on your list. Focus on your diet, your activities, and your connection to others. Cosmic Advice: You may have to take time from your professional duties. Remember that this is brief; there is no long term, you at your peak in career, no worries.

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19) Capricorn has the power. This is your mantra for a very long time. The earth energy of Taurus compliments the earth energy of Capricorn. You may be rewarded for a past effort, a child or children close to you may graduate or find success. Love and fun are yours. Cosmic Advice: Bottle these few weeks, life should be good.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18) Aquarius struggles with the fixed energy of Taurus in regard to family and where you began. Home is important, do what you need to do to keep it looking beautiful even if it takes more physical energy than you feel you are capable of. You will be pleased with the results. Cosmic Advice: If you have a sister or sisters, their or her intervention will be well received. If not, look around; what you need and who you need is close by.

PISCES (February 19-March 20) Pisces must act quickly within the community or with issues regarding to siblings and/or family. A brother, sister or relatives other than parents require your attention. This energy brings opportunities and these individuals figure heavily into the outcome. Cosmic Advice: You will have some explaining to do after mid-month and that may be a challenge. Get things worked out so there is little time wasted later.
