Georgia Nicols Horoscopes June 17 – 23, 2012

When the Sun enters each new sign, it is a clue to an astrologer that a different part of life will be illuminated by this solar spotlight

  • Jun. 14, 2012 7:00 p.m.

Each year, the Sun goes through the 12 signs of the zodiac, which are named after constellations in the sky. (Please note: The signs of the zodiac are named after the constellations, they don’t line up with the constellations.) And when the Sun enters each new sign, it is a clue to an astrologer that a different part of life will be illuminated by this solar spotlight. Things will come out of the shadows springing into sharp relief, bringing new events and meaning into our lives. Of course, what has meaning for one person might be meaningless for another. (Nevertheless, we can all agree that Cole’s Law is just thinly sliced cabbage.)

 

Aries March 21-April 19

In the month ahead, you’ll want to nest at home. One reason for this is you’ll feel a need to have time alone. Childhood memories will bubble to the surface of your mind. You’ll appreciate being around familiar things. Discussions with family members (especially parents) could be significant. In turn, these memories and family discussions might make you want to bounce your thoughts off of third party – a friend, advisor or professional counsellor because families can be wonderful and supportive but also quite maddening. George Burns was right: “Happiness as a loving, warm, caring family living in another city.”

 

Taurus April 20-May 20

You are the banker of the zThe solar shift will speed things up for you! Expect a busy month ahead with an accelerated daily pace because your schedule will be busier than usual. Many of you will take short trips while others will be running around doing errands more than usual. You feel a bit restless and the need to move around, which is why this could be a good time for a vacation as well. You’re also eager to reach out to others because you want to communicate. You want to enlighten others and share your opinions. Basically, you can expect to be eager, enthusiastic, mentally alert and on the go, learning new things and sharing your ideas with others. (And remember the password is “Sherbet lemon.”)

 

Gemini May 21-June 20

You’re giving more and more thought to your values. (You think a lot.) You’ve just had your birthday. You’re beginning a new year, but more than that, with fair Venus and lucky Jupiter in your sign, you sense this is a time of opportunity and fresh beginnings. There’s a difference between having with a sense of intent and having a To Do list. The latter is just a list of activities, but the former is potentially life-changing. This is why you’re thinking about how you earn money, how you would like to earn money, and what you want to do with your money. Cash flow and possessions are outer expressions of these values. (As something to think about if you’re into nude rap sessions.)

 

Cancer June 21-July 22

This week the Sun enters your sign for the next four weeks, boosting your energy and attracting favourable circumstances to you as well as important people. This really is a super-charge! It’s also a time where it’s totally appropriate to put yourself first because, essentially, it’s all about you. Plus, you’ll have a strong need to express yourself. This is the beginning of your personal year (birthday to birthday), which is more real than the beginning of a calendar year. Because the Sun in your sign allows you to project yourself more forcefully, you’ll make a strong impression on others. You want to run the show and don’t want to be told what to do.

 

Leo July 23-Aug 22

This is a time of preparation because your birthday is a month away. January 1 is an arbitrary date devised by the Gregorian calendar. But your birthday is real. It’s when the degree of your sign (at the time of your birth) lines up with the degree of the Sun in the sky. A true beginning! Why not set some goals about what you want to achieve in the next year? Life is a conveyor belt. You get on until you get off. The ride is your life, which is chopped into segments of being asleep and awake creating the illusion of days, months and years. But you’re always on the ride. The question is – what do you want to do with the time left to you?

 

Virgo Aug 23-Sept 22

This solar shift ushers in a month of popularity for Virgos. Enjoy schmoozing with others. Accept invitations to socialize and extend a few from yourself as well. You might join a club or take a class. You’ll find it rewarding to be with others because not only will you enjoy the contact and a chance to exchange ideas, you’ll be excited to discuss your dreams for the future with them. And their feedback will help you! Not only is this a social month ahead, it’s a time where you feel connected to your goals. You’re very future-oriented. Others can help you now, which is why you should encourage them to be in your life.

 

Libra Sept 23-Oct 22

This is the only time of year when the Sun travels across the top of your chart acting like a spotlight on you, which is why others notice you more than usual. Since this lighting is flattering, you look unusually good to others, which is why you will likely be asked to take on increased responsibilities. (People think you’re the cat’s meow.) This is a good thing! Just say yes because you’ll be able to do the job. In addition, you’ll be thinking about your career, your reputation and your life direction in general. If you don’t know where you’re headed, how can you make important decisions? You would just be a chicken crossing the road – poultry in motion.

 

Scorpio Oct 23-Nov 21

Life is taking on an exciting quality because you’ve decided it’s time to spread your wings! Many of you will have rewarding experiences by travelling somewhere new or learning new things or enjoying exciting adventures. You’re hungry to enrich your world. Do make an effort to travel, sign up for courses, go back to school, or put yourself in a situation where you will discover new ideas from people from different backgrounds. You want to break stagnant boundaries and free yourself from routine. You might also explore religious, spiritual and consciousness-raising ideas. Even casual encounters could be profound. Totally cool!

 

Sagittarius Nov 22-Dec 21

“The King was in his counting house, counting out his money. The Queen was in the parlour, eating bread and honey.” This line from Sing a Song of Sixpence aptly describes your month ahead because your focus now turns to debt, taxes, inheritances, insurance matters and red-tape details. But that’s not all. Sweet sex will start to play a larger role in your life. (Woo-woo!) However, in the bigger picture, you are on a self-improvement kick. You’re trying to clean up your act so you can be a better person. You might even meet a teacher or someone who provokes self-inquiry or challenges your values. (We never really grow up; we only learn how to act in public.)

 

Capricorn Dec 22-Jan 19

For the next four weeks, the Sun will be directly opposite your sign, which means it’s as far away from you as it will get all year. Since the Sun is your source of energy, this means you’re going to need more sleep. Factoid. Recognize your need for this and try to get more rest. Another thing this opposing Sun will do is draw your attention to your closest friendships and partnerships. Not only will you give them more thought, you’ll have a chance to observe yourself in action, which is why the next month is an opportunity for you to see how to improve these close relationships, whether you’re in bed or not. (Yawn.)

 

Aquarius Jan 20-Feb 18

Oh my! Busy you! You’ve decided it’s time to get a little closer to perfection. This is why your month ahead will be full of To Do lists as you try your best to be as efficient, effective and productive as possible. You want to get things done! You want to feel more in control and on top of your scene. In addition, you want to feel healthier. You want to eat better, sleep better and get exercise and, of course, all this will be done in a home that is tidier. You might not alphabetize your CDs but you’re headed in that direction. You’ll feel so pleased with yourself when you live up to these new standards of self-control and self-discipline. (Let’s call this your smug month.)

 

Pisces Feb 19-March 20

Tra-la, tra-la! It is to laugh. As the Sun shifts signs this week, it welcomes one of the most fun months of the year for you. That’s why the next four-to-six weeks are all about love, romance, social tête-à-têtes, parties, sports events, fun vacation escapes, and playful times with children. It’s your turn to kick up your heels, let your hair down and paint the town red! Naturally, you’re going to need a supporting cast for all this and no doubt they will materialize. Lovers, running mates, friends and creative, artistic contacts will appear to give you so many thrilling experiences, it will be regrettable that you can’t write them down in your diary. Who has time? Enjoy!
