Happy Birthday Gemini!

Freedom is the name of the game this Mercury-ruled sign likes to play. A Gemini may have a home base, but they will leave often, only to return and leave again.

Gemini is as much at home in a Land Rover wandering the plains of the Old West as he would be landing on the moon.

Moving about, never staying in one place is a dream of every Gemini. The song “Don’t Fence Me In” was either written with a Gemini in mind or it was written by a Gemini, outlining the love of the good life.

Their ability to communicate by the spoken or written word, often leads them to work in journalism or teaching. They are an inspiration to many in both fields of thought.

People born this week are: Bjorn Borg, June 6, 1956; Liam Neeson, June 7, 1955; Keenan Wayans, June 8, 1955; Nikki Baber, June 9, 1988; Kate Upton, June 10, 1992; Shia LaBeouf, June 11, 1986; Mark Henry, June 12, 1971; Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, June 13, 1986.

The moon will be full on Friday the 13th, plus Mercury will be retrograde, so watch yourself. It would be wise to make no demands on yourself or anyone else. This is the week when you feel the heavy vibrations of the full moon. It is a week to remember to make no demands and sign no contracts – or once again, you will pay the price, which is often high.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) As you count your blessings, be aware that it is now time for the unexpected to happen. Your life will jump from one challenge to another. You may have some breaks in between and it will end rightly. The lesson is that you stay calm.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) If your life is moving from one challenge to another, that is good. It shows you are capable of handling any opportunity that pops into your life well. Take life as it comes now and avoid becoming overburdened with useless nonsense. New pals are headed your way so make room in your life.

Hit the Road: Finding the Right Bike

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Spending some time looking at your life as it is now would do you a world of good. After all, once you know who you really are, you can change what you don’t love. A relationship could turn around and be your way. So stay alert when it happens.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) A day in your life right now that is dedicated to pulling things together will pay off big time in the near future. So take an hour or two and outline your goals. With Jupiter in Cancer until mid-July, you have time. You will love the answers you come up with after a tiny review of goals. A new love?

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) After a week on the merry-go-round, life will calm down. But, you are not finished with demands that must be made and carried out by you. The turmoil you are feeling will pass once you understand your social mission. You need less interference. So let it stop.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Some of your decisions last week need a tight review Also, don’t move too quickly on your next romantic move or you will once again be disappointed. It is time to really watch what you are doing in the relationship area of your life. Make a change and then let it go.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Take a quick inventory of your relationships and see if there are any changes to be made. If you look at each one clearly, you may see the need for some adjustments. Make them instead of trashing what could be a really good partnership. That is this week’s goal.

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) If there is anything making you feel uncomfortable now, it is time to take a step to reverse it. Otherwise, the situation could go totally out of control. If you can talk about it now, you will be happy with the results and also remain in control of everything – which is just what you like.

Educating the World One Child At A Time

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) Although there may have been some strange happenings during the week, don’t get caught up with it. You need to remain in the party mode and get out where the action is. Otherwise, a good relationship will slide right by you. That is not a wise move right now.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Any surprise in your life now is merely to wake you up and make sure you stay awake. You need to take a stronger stand on what you want. The stronger the stand, the more power you will obtain. Remember, you need to be in command to be happy. For you, there is no other way. That takes work.

Aquarius  (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) The real need now is to dig deep within yourself and find the real you. This is a challenge and you don’t want to do it, but you will be so happy with the outcome, it will make it worthwhile. A newcomer to your social scene will stir up your life, so get ready. You are making some changes and there is no stopping you. It will be good.

Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) Love is towering above you all the time. So it might be smart to look up and find yourself handling life in a new and different way. Your secrets should be kept secret and your longtime goal is starting to become real. A new friendship will add to the good times ahead. So look around and be ready to move.
