Your Milky Way Horoscope June 15-21, 2014
By Milky Way Maid
Dear Readers-- Please visit the website of the National Blood Clot Alliance at StopTheClot.org to learn more about blood clots and when you might need to see a doctor about it.
Father's Day on June 15 features a Moon-Jupiter opposition. Dads might get overemotional about their kids or meaningful gifts received. Conversely, things going wrong may cause dads or moms to blow their stacks or over-react in other ways. So be gentle with Dad and go along with whatever he wants to do; he really loves you, you know.
Mercury retrogrades back into Gemini at 6:05 am Tuesday. We will have to make corrections to paperwork, call people back to cancel or reschedule appointments, or meet with professional people to clarify what we expect from each other.
Venus at 24 degrees Taurus sextiles sugar-daddy Jupiter in Cancer at 5:16 am Wednesday. Wishes can come true under this transit, so be careful what you wish for. This transit can make you a little too generous, so think things over before you give away any fur coats or diamonds. You might overdo in the food or drink department, especially with sweets. But on the whole, you will be in a very nice, contented mood, and may even feel like you are on vacation.
The Sun at 28 degrees Gemini is conjunct retrograde Mercury at 6:50 pm Thursday. This is an important point in the Mercury cycle so watch for any changes of direction in the stock market or in commodities prices. And hey, if you read my article on late degrees, you might also recognize this transit as a fine time to start that novel you have been meaning to write.
The Sun enters Cancer at 6:51 am Saturday. People with the Sun in Cancer are either a big baby, wanting to be taken care of, or everybody's mama who takes care of others. Cancers are extremely proud of wherever they come from, and readily wave the flag no matter how long it has been since they lived there. A mature Cancer personality is very sensitive to the emotional pains of others, and can empathize and validate others' feelings. Cancer is a very active sign since it is one of the cardinals; they are always doing something. They like all sorts of antiques and anything historical, which may include the moth-eaten old doll from childhood. Famous people with the Sun in Cancer include: comedian Phyllis Diller, rocker Ringo Starr, game show mogul Merv Griffin, pianist Van Cliburn, artist Rembrandt, Jean Jacques Rousseau, Helen Keller, Gilda Radner, Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor, PT Barnum, and Arianna Huffington.

Readers can follow not only their Sun sign horoscope but also their Ascendant for further clues to how your week will develop. NOTE: some aspects are exact on a weekend but may find opportunity for expression on the Friday or Monday nearest the exact aspect. Times given are in Eastern Standard or Eastern Daylight Savings Time depending on the season.
ARIES - March 20-April 19 – The Moon is in Aries from 5:26 pm Thursday till late Saturday. The Sun-Mercury conjunction on Thursday directly affects your communications; perhaps you need to finish or edit a manuscript. Friday could be stressful, with deadlines pressing you to make decisions regarding career or partnerships. Dinner hour on Saturday favors catching up on news and gossip with your guests. Juno enters your solar third house this week; communications are key in relationships, and you enjoy using someone as a sounding board.
TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – Best days this week are probably when the Moon is in Pisces, plus your ruler Venus is very happy Wednesday morning. The Moon enters Taurus at 11:03 pm Saturday, and remains there thru the weekend. Not much I can say about less than an hour, except that you will feel more like yourself Sunday morning.

You may even be able to afford some indulgences after cutting out the waste.
GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Juno enters Gemini this week! Right now you want a beau who is mentally stimulating more than anything else. Explore taking a class together, taking day trips, or reading the same book. You may also at the same time develop more self-reliance as you grow into yourself while still sharing a part of your life with someone else. The Sun-Mercury conjunction on Thursday may be significant for you, so by all means start a writing class or project, or set aside time to write such as at a writers' Meetup, etc.
CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Best day may be when the Moon is in fellow-water-sign Pisces; Wednesday morning may bring a gift. Juno's entry into your solar twelfth house could pull you into an unhealthy savior-victim dynamic, but also opens up opportunities to help others in a professional role. Relationships need to have a normal amount of give-and-take. This is also a good time for developing artistic talents as you allow subconscious material to find expression and release.
LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Juno's entry into your solar eleventh house this week ushers in a period when you explore other arrangements in relationships, almost like going through the a-la-carte menu at a cafeteria. You want to balance your own needs for freedom and your comfort with a more traditional ways. Best day may be Saturday night when spent chatting with friends.
VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Juno's entry into your solar tenth house ushers in a period when you take relationships more seriously, in fact you may view it as another job. You may also begin a career in the field of managing joint resources, investments, or taxes, possibly in a family business. Best day could be Thursday when the Sun-Mercury conjunction may throw a lot of light on career matters.
LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Juno's entry into your solar ninth house will probably help you find a capable advisor to guide you through legal or publishing matters. You might find that you choose someone who works in a partnership, such as a married couple who are both lawyers. This transit also spurs a hunger for new adventures and travel, so you may have to get a new passport in order. Best day may be Wednesday morning's Venus-Jupiter sextile when a career perk may be granted you.
SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - Juno's entry into your solar eighth house this week may coincide with hidden issues coming to the surface. Scorpio always has issues related to power-sharing, trust, privacy, etc., but this transit is sure to force you to deal with them.

The Moon makes no aspects Sunday while in Aquarius, but midday Monday revs up your energy level; make your to-do list extra ambitious. Appointments may be broken Monday afternoon, and that could be disappointing. Work on relationships Tuesday morning, since goodwill and communications are favorable. Juno's entry into your solar fifth house brings more fun in general, more artistic creativity, and enthusiastic activities as a couple.
