Happy Birthday Gemini! Life should be on the upbeat if you celebrate your birthday this week. You are a born communicator and your love of writing should be developed. Because you enjoy moving about you have a strong desire to travel the world. You are also a free spirit, so it would be wise to hook up with another Gemini, Aquarius or Libra, who also enjoy their freedom.

Gemini is ruled by Mercury and so likes being mentally stimulated by studies of almost everything and also likes friends who also enjoy the challenge of learning and travel.

Not only does a Gemini born this week want and need freedom of expression and the joy of travel, they enjoy the experience of communicating. They like to write and love to talk.

A Gemini can tell the tallest tales with great gusto and humor. There is nothing as charming as a Gemini storyteller. They are the best. Gemini lives in a world of their own making and it must include freedom of all kinds.

People born this week: Kenya West, June 8, 1977; “Gabby” Giffords, June 9, 1970; Johnny Depp, June 10, 1963; Dr. Mehmet Oz, June 11, 1951; Vic Damone, June 12, 1928; Christo, June 13, 1935; and Donald Trump, June 14, 1946.

Mars will move into Libra on the day of the next full moon, July 4, after its long stay in Virgo so we can expect life to calm down for Virgo people. Then on June 11 Jupiter will join Venus in Gemini. So you can be sure magical events will start to happen on the social scene of Gemini, Aquarius and Libra. Gemini will feel the greatest impact so prepare yourself if you celebrate a birthday in mid-May. Also on June 25 Saturn, which has been in Libra for the past 2½ years, will start its final journey in Libra and head toward Scorpio.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) The awesome impact of Uranus is being felt in the life of every fire sign – some more than others. After all, if you are an Aries, the unexpected will happen. Look for a change of pace and some new people to enter your life. Since you have a sharp mind and sharp tongue to match, just watch what you have to say this week. Or kiss a few buddies good-bye.

Get Planting: Spring Has Sprung

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) If you have somehow neglected to take advantage of the long run of Jupiter in Taurus get busy and take on some big, beautiful tasks this week. Because on June 11 Jupiter moves into Gemini and you will have to work harder for the good opportunities to come along. Looking for a lover? Get busy.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Prepare yourself for some good times because Venus has arrived and Jupiter will be in Gemini by June 11. That means you will have life handed to you on a silver platter. But, if you don’t take advantage of the opportunities coming your way, you will be the loser. New love is just around the corner. So let your attitude match your love life.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Life will start on the upswing by the end of this month so get ready. No more complaining. Just look for the chance to move ahead both in romance and career. Saturn is slowly moving out of Libra and into Scorpio. That will bring you a much better time for love and money. So convert your worries into fun and you are off and running.

Leo (July 21 to August 20). The more drama you can avoid this week the greater the impact your outgoing personality will have on friends. And since you love being the star of the social scene this could be one of the most exciting weeks of your life. Jupiter is moving into Gemini and it will make a great aspect to your sun. The result will be improved enthusiasm and luck.

Virgo (August 21 to September 20) If you have a favorite project you are hoping to complete or a new relationship you want to start then get busy. Mars has one more month in Virgo and then life will calm down and so will you. Looking for a new  BFF or more challenge at work? Get out there and make things happen. It will be in your favor and you end up in a great spot.

Libra (September 21 to October 20) If you just hang in there and know that the end is in sight you will feel better and learn more. Jupiter is moving into Gemini on June 11 and will trine your sun during its move through that air sign. Jupiter will bring you all the good you need. After some delay, you will start to win once again.

Garden Clippings: Bus Trips, Community Garden Plots

Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) Pace yourself by completing what you start at a good clip. You can make up for lost time and keep life moving along if you promise nothing and keep moving along with your new agenda. Make no excuses and take none. Then you will be able to keep up the lifestyle you have now carved out for yourself. It is time for really hard work to keep up.

Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) If you haven’t notice a change in your attitude lately then you must be asleep. Wake up and look around. New people are coming into your life at a fast clip and if you look closely you should notice a potential love. The time has arrived to move into a new zone. So get ready.

Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) If you are an early Capricorn (born at the end of December), you are faced with some exciting changes. Just move ahead with courage and know that your life is really in order. A new relationship could top the list and more opportunities to make money will also present themselves in the oddest places. So stay awake and make some moves.

Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) Stay alert right now because some of the pieces you have been trying to put together are starting to work. No more slow-paced working things out. You need to take some swift action and tell it like it is. Otherwise you are going to feel badly and so are others in your circle. Make some moves toward a new adventure.

Pisces (February 21 to March 20) The magic of Neptune in Pisces should be surrounding you by now and making you want to reach out and help someone. You need to find a cause to celebrate and help. And, if there is a new BFF involved, you should take advantage of that also. No more holding on to the past. You must move forward and make things happen for you.
