The Sun has one of its solstices this month. Mars had one last month – from May 7th to the 14th. Mars paused and then changed direction. This is what was happening with your writing and intellectual interests – a pause and then a new direction.

You will feel this phenomenon in your love life this month. Until the Summer Solstice love is all about fun and games, nothing too serious about it. But afterwards love becomes more practical. Emotional intimacy is still important, but love is about service to the beloved. This is how you show it, this is how you feel loved. The person who serves your interests is the one you’re attracted to.

Venus will have one of her solstices this month – pretty much when the Sun is having his – from the 19th to the 23rd. There is a pause in the family life and family situation and then a change of direction. Students at the college level will also feel this with their studies.

The love planet, the Sun, will re-activate old eclipse points this month. On the 8th and 9th both the Sun and Venus activate an eclipse point. So there are dramas in love and with the family. Short-term dramas. Be more patient with the beloved and with the family on those days. The Sun will activate another eclipse point from the 20th to the 24th. Again more patience is needed.

In general love is happier before the 21st than after. After the 21st you’ll have to work harder at your relationship. You and the beloved are not in synch.

Finances are challenging until the 20th. Neptune, your financial planet, is being stressed and goes into retrograde motion on the 13th. He will be retrograde for many months to come. Financial confidence is not up to its usual standard. The financial intuition, which has been super all year, needs verification. Finances improve after the 21st, but earnings come with more delays and glitches. Until November, when Neptune starts to move forward, strive for mental clarity about finances – both your personal finances and in your environment. Review things. See where improvements can be made, and when Neptune starts to go forward again, you’ll be able to put your plans into operation. Until then you’re more or less ‘treading water’. Handle the needs of the hour, but avoid major purchases or financial decisions.

Your 6th house of health and work hasn’t been strong all year. Only the Moon has occasionally passed through there. But this month, on the 21st, it becomes powerful. This is excellent news for job seekers and for those needing to catch up on the dull, humdrum tasks of life – like filing and book-keeping. It is also a good period to initiate health regimes and diets.
