Seeing is believing and believing is seeing. The question becomes: do you believe in yourself? We are halfway into the year and, by the end of June, we’ll have six celestial bodies in the heavens, all in retrograde, allowing us to revise, organize, review, and put the bits and pieces of the puzzle back together. Navigate in silence and carry out your mission, and make sure all your team members know the roles needed to accomplish the task. Don’t get distracted. Stay the course and keep building your foundation. Mercury retrograde’s shadow is upon us—be sure to check the recipient of emails, texts, memos, etc. Mercury retrograde starts on June 18, as restrictions are slowly being lifted globally. However, use caution since we can’t see what is in the air. “Revolution is not a one-time event.” Audre Lorde

Capricorn: This may be a relationship cycle for you and, with the global restrictions being lifted, you may come across someone with no intentions now who may later become a new partner, lover, or friend. Just go with the flow and let things BALANCE themselves out. If not now, August will also be a good relationship cycle. Until then, continue with the projects ahead. You may not see progress in your plans until the 11th and 27th, due to behind-the-scenes work being finalized. Control your emotions this week, as people say the darndest things that make your head turn quickly to reply. “The expected is what keeps us steady. It’s the unexpected that changes our lives forever.” Shonda Rhimes

Aquarius: A good walk or stroll through the park or around the block is a relief and helps you feel alive again. Money-making career opportunities, possibly something grand coming your way, is likely to keep you busy (as if you aren’t already). Well, this is just the beginning. Everything will be clearer in May of next year. Take time to meditate and write out beautiful ideas, and organize your career projects to stay on schedule. Your week is going to get occupied quickly so listen to your body and rest when needed. “Look closely at the present you are constructing: It should look like the future you are dreaming.” Alice Walker

Pisces: The direction of your services may seem to be flowing in the opposite direction, almost like walking backward. You may discover new and improved ways to add a more cozy feeling to your home and work environment. Life sometimes makes us do a double-take to think again before moving on. If things by chance get emotional, it’s probably the internal workings that are the root cause. Be honest with yourself and admit the truth. Remember, moving forward is the key. Things will be clearer around the 11th and 12th. What do you want out of life? You already have insight, so make it happen. “Only through new words might the new world be called into order.” Saul Williams

Aries: Being open and optimistic takes you closer to your rightful claim—stay diligent. Take the leadership role this week. However, be open to advice, as people are trying to help you solve your situations. Don’t throw anyone under the bus because you can’t control your emotions. It’s best to talk it out, then find the balance. If you’re consistent in your routine and in building your foundation, then the time around the 13th and 14th may just bring excitement and advancements. “Ain’t nothing coming easily in this life. Sometimes you gotta work, you gotta grow and it gotta hurt.” Jill Scott

Taurus: Money, money, money seems to be the theme circulating around you on the 11th and 12th of this week. Hold tight to the possible financial turnaround coming your way. Don’t be surprised to be financially pulled into family obligations, workloads, and into helping others. Keep a notebook handy to review events that have recently occurred. Begin to connect the dots and trace the root of things. Things will happen suddenly, so keep a close eye on what’s going on. Keep your home and your car, if you have one, on point. Nice and clean. “Nature is orderly. That which appears to be chaotic in nature is only a more complex kind of order.” Gary Snyder

Gemini: Family obligations are priority number one this week. Make sure your family has all the necessities needed. Your career is also on the rise, so find the balance and receive the support to make this a successful production. This month should include a cardio workout for the heart, like jogging, walking, jump rope, or even swimming if you can get to a pool or beach. A family dinner, along with family games or movie nights to end the day, brings you closer together. You should see a spike in your routine around the 18th and 20th. “We are each other’s magnitude and bond.” Gwendolyn Brooks

Cancer: This week suggests you take it slow as things could escalate. Mercury will go retrograde on June 18, along with an upcoming solar eclipse on the 21st in the new moon in Cancer, denoting new beginnings similar to the time back on July 2, 2018. So, look for new beginnings that are likely to occur this time around. Think about your relationships with the people you value, especially those in your love, career, and work experiences. Don’t forget your health. Accept the changes that surround you and be open to ideas that can enhance your current situation. “With our short sight, we affect to take a comprehensive view of eternity. Our horizon is the universe.” Paul Dunbar

Leo: You may feel like you’re treading water this week. If someone from your past shows up, or past habits, thoughts, or patterns occur, really think about the direction you’re heading towards, rather than going back to what may have been comfortable. Stay the course. If you find yourself wanting to be alone, then do so and take time to privately release those tears—this will help you emotionally cleanse so you can see things for what they truly are. You have to keep moving forward, knowing the universe has got you covered. Take a warm salt bath to release negative energies and help you feel rejuvenated. “You are who you choose to be.” Ted Hughes

Virgo: Feeling the need to be romanced? Finance and family obligations may seemingly put a delay in your plans. Are you thinking about moving, or remodeling your home? Are you concerned about your health? It’s all in the mind. Our thoughts are powerful; what you think is what you attract. News of a pregnancy, even symbolically, gives birth to new ideas and developments that are on your mind. If you are interested in investing inland, it’s a good time to sell and buy. Do your research before doing so. Take care of the home and check on those elders who may need you to run a few errands. “Being true to yourself means being true to all the complexities of the human spirit.” Rita Dove

Libra: Your dreams may be showing you signs of the questions you’ve been asking this cycle. You should feel spiritually and physically awakened and inclined to tune into the inner cosmos. It’s likely to give you access to visions and insights as to upcoming events. You need to identify what’s ready to finally transform and to let go. Someone may come to you about something that’s been on your mind. This shadow period leading into the upcoming Mercury retrograde is a time to tread the waters carefully where agreements and contracts are concerned; several planets in addition to Mercury—including Venus, the ruler of your sign—are also going backward. “Sometimes things become possible if we want them bad enough.” T.S. Eliot

Scorpio: You have no problem demanding and making clear what you want and need this week, or telling people where you stand and where they need to buzz off, and giving them an honest answer when asked. You’re assertive—be that way with anyone this week. Just give them a short and sweet answer. This month is special for you for getting things accomplished and expanding your business in some way, shape or form. The 12th should hold significance. If you happen to be looking through old photos, remind yourself of how far you’ve come. “I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am I am I am.” Sylvia Plath

Sagittarius: Be prepared to move in a different direction over the next several days. You may be required to extend your services and connect with other people to get the message across. It’s what makes you understand the true meaning of being of service. Plan on moving or rearranging things around the home, be it changing your bedsheets, painting, or planting flowers. Jupiter, the ruler of your sign, is retrograde for the balance of the month, along with Mercury in retrograde, which could make for mixed signals—knowing that suggests you be mindful of the way you get your point across. Try not to overextend yourself to be financially or emotionally drained. “There are things known and things unknown and in between are the doors.” Jim Morrison
