Get a Jump On Tomorrow,

Your Horoscopes for Tuesday, June 30th

 

 

Aries 

Aries Horoscope
Aries

There can be a building desire to improve these days, dear Aries, although there can be a hurdle today that likely revolves around the past or your own guilty feelings about enjoying yourself and moving forward in your love life. Do what you can to build your faith in your creativity and make peace with the past. This will free you up to take better advantage of opportunities this week, as you are looking especially good and might even be the object of desire. Charm comes naturally. Good energy is with you for expanding your personal horizons through creative endeavors. Love can be magical and your powers of attraction are strong. It’s a good time for friendships and dating, personal attraction, and your social life in general. There may be good news on a financial level for some of you, and a sense of abundance for others.

Taurus


Taurus

There can be some frustrations with friends and family if they are not mixing well in some way, dear Taurus, or you could be feeling conflicted about plans that haven’t come together well. Adjustments and sacrifices are in order, but dealing with these now can help to free you up for real opportunities revolving around your home, family, and personal life later today and tomorrow. Nice opportunities can arise to bond with those closest to you. This can also be a time for buying a special item for the home, or when money comes through. Taking a trip down memory lane can be satisfying now. There is mostly good humor today, although you can be a little prone to impracticality and exaggeration. This is a good time to expand contact, strengthen ties, and find peace with the past. Your powers of attraction skyrocket.

Gemini


Gemini

If you’ve been taking on too many new interests, you’ll feel the need to tone things down, dear Gemini. There can be information overload, or new information comes up that challenges a previous belief or your own optimistic outlook. Find ways to straighten things out now, and to alleviate stress, as a very pleasant aspect occurring later today and into tomorrow can bring opportunities. Let go of attitudes and projects that no longer serve you or that are less important so that you can make room for the new. Watch for opportunities in the form of new interests, connections, and learning. For some, there could be a creative project, speaking engagement, a publishing of your work, or even a romantic connection made. Success tends to come through word of mouth, others, or clever ideas. People are appreciating your ideas and the power of your words is strong. Your good cheer and optimism can help strengthen close relationships.

Cancer


Cancer

Something happening today, or simply a feeling, can lead you to question a belief, goal, project, or even a person, dear Cancer. If you don’t have the answers right now, have faith that you may not need them at the moment. Consider carefully ways that guilt may be undermining you or keeping you from enjoying yourself. There is a Venus-Jupiter alignment today and tomorrow that can bring in nice prospects or opportunities to feel more comfortable and secure. Money is not just about security for you these days, however – it’s also about freedom. You may be especially motivated to make more, and this attitude can bring greater wealth into your life. This can be a good time for starting or advancing projects that have long-term appeal and profitability. Some of you could uncover a resource or information that benefits you greatly. There could be a significant gift or bonus or you may simply be feeling generous, with others and yourself! Opportunities to make more money could emerge for some of you. Think big and vow to take care of the details later, as the details may not yet be clear – do some overview thinking.

Leo


Leo

Jupiter in your sign tends to put you in the spotlight in a very pleasant way these days, dear Leo, but when it forms difficult aspects, there can be some downsides. Today, Jupiter is in awkward angle to Chiron, and you could suddenly feel that you have less answers than you did before. It’s a brief time of doubting or questioning where you’re headed, your current path, or your alliances, and for some, a moral dilemma can be part of the picture. Simplifying, organizing, and eliminating excess can be helpful if you’re feeling uncertain. Look for ways to make adjustments so that you can fully enjoy Jupiter’s alignment with Venus, which can fill you with a nice sense of abundance, perhaps as if puzzle pieces are coming together. Attracting support from others, if you need it, can be easier, and romantic attention is quite likely. You would do well to put a past grudge behind you, as this is a good time for it. You tend to gravitate towards healthy people and situations.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

A close relationship might be a little strained today, dear Virgo, if topics are being dredged up from the past, or a secret emerges in a disruptive manner. Insecurities can cloud judgment right now. However, find ways to move out of your comfort zone and rise above insecurities and fears, as there can be distinct opportunities to free yourself from a burdensome attachment. Some of you can benefit from synchronicity – something surfaces now, such as an unusual coincidence, that brings some joy into your life. A private matter can also stimulate happy and warm feelings. Helping others, performing a generous act or service, and possibly behind the scenes or anonymously, can be satisfying. Some of you could revive an old relationship or find out about a secret attraction. Love may be complicated but rich. There can be the discovery of an untapped resource now.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

You might come to a realization or concern that certain details of a project or goal are not particularly practical and realistic, dear Libra. If you’ve been taking on too much recently, you’ll feel that excess now and wonder how you can manage everything. However, it’s very important to make the adjustments you need to make and avoid dwelling on the negative now, as there is also strong energy for opportunities. You are connecting with spirited, interesting people, and while your eagerness to share and enjoy others can sometimes have you going overboard, approaching these things with a little more moderation can be wonderful and a stress reducer. Positive attention can come through enthusiastically helping others. For some of you, a friend can come to your aid. Some of you might enjoy new friendships or meet a love interest through a group, friend, or social networking. Don’t hide yourself away at this time, but also be wary of overdoing your pursuit of pleasure or for taking on too many commitments.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

A recurring aspect between Jupiter in your reputation /career sector and Chiron in your sector of romance / creativity comes exact today, dear Scorpio, and this is the final one in a set. For some of you insecurities can emerge when it comes to creative endeavors that stop you in your tracks and perhaps have you questioning long-term goals. You could experience a moral dilemma with your work or reputation. Instead of allowing insecurities to drive your actions, aim to learn more about them in order to make important attitude changes, as tonight and tomorrow, Jupiter aligns with Venus helping to open up doors on professional or public levels. This can be, in fact, a strong time for long-term vision, career, and reputation matters, especially if you put yourself out in the world with confidence. You can be in the position to improve your career or financial state now, and for some, your reputation gets a nice boost. People are enjoying and appreciating what you do. You can feel particularly good about your future, where you’re heading, and your ability to manage others. There can be romantic or friendly connections now, and especially through public exposure or business affairs.

Sagittarius 

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

You might experience some guilty feelings if you haven’t paid enough attention to important people in your life, dear Sagittarius. There could be a moral dilemma of sorts. However, communication coming out of any dilemmas experienced today can take you to a much healthier place. Talk things out or through, and you will feel your motivation building. You are feeling in big terms now, after a possibly bumpy morning. There are romantic possibilities these days, and particularly with people of a different background than yours, or who are offering you an entirely different perspective on life. Intelligence attracts! You are more adventurous with your feelings and bolder with your affections. Sharing your ideas with others might even lead to bigger opportunities. The future looks bright, and some of you could be making educational or travel plans.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

A recurring aspect between Jupiter and Chiron comes exact again today, dear Capricorn, and this can have you questioning your current path, worrying about having paid too much attention to your personal life at the expense of other important activities, or dealing with an insecure partner. Avoid subconsciously expecting too much from others, or putting all of your eggs into one basket. Rise above insecurities in order to enjoy another important energy available today that can lead to the strengthening of a relationship or connection with someone. There could be word of money or support coming through, a windfall of sorts, or an open-hearted conversation that makes you feel quite wonderful. Your people instincts are especially strong, and you may find joy through an intimate moment or a moment of profound self-honesty. This is an excellent time for talking about your needs, as others are responsive and some of the usual barriers and boundaries dissolve.

Aquarius


Aquarius

While there can be somewhat demotivating energy surrounding partnerships, values, resources, and finances right now, Aquarius, getting over this hump can be very much worth your while today, as there can be distinct opportunities to win others over or to enhance a relationship. If someone feels they’re giving more than they are receiving, or if there are noticeable discrepancies in values and attitudes about money, then put the energy forth to make the necessary adjustments. This can be a good time for attracting a pleasant or helpful person into your life. There can be mutual benefit through others today, and you might reach a new level of understanding with someone special. You can experience joy in feeling part of a partnership now, if applicable, or if you’re not paired up with anyone, simply being around and being supportive of someone special. You are expressing real confidence and you have a strong desire to move forward – to forgive and forget.

Pisces


Pisces

While there can be some tendency to second-guess your recent decisions or to lose focus, it’s very important to take extra time to realign yourself with what you are looking for, as there is excellent energy with you for opportunities to improve or enjoy your daily life and bodily concerns (health matters, work, and so forth). Look out for impractical thinking and too-high expectations, but do watch for interesting possibilities. Good humor can be healing today. You may be feeling happy about getting things done or being of service. Be open about making connections and socializing in places you never thought to do so, and find new ways to explore and enjoy the work you perform or the services you render on a daily basis.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, June 29th

 

Aries 

Aries Horoscope
Aries

While you’re emotionally prepared for non-routine experiences today, dear Aries, this is in fact a wonderful time to nurture and develop your pet projects or work today. Conditions as well as people in your life seem to support your efforts, or at least allow you the pleasure of going about doing what you want to do without guilt or distraction. You could be motivated to work harder because of clear goals or to better take care of you and yours. There is a real protector in you these days.

Taurus


Taurus

You may be learning new things about your love life today, dear Taurus, and you are in better touch with your deeper feelings. There is a feeling that love can overcome anything. This is also a good time for career developments or moves. People look at you with more respect, as you have special executive ability and can easily manage others in fair ways. You have a way of being practical, calm, persistent, and sensible, and these things earn you natural respect. Today and tomorrow, make sure you are around people you love and showing your care. These are strong days for building close relationships.

Gemini


Gemini

You can be providing support today in a great range of positions or roles, dear Gemini. You instinctively know that there are learning experiences to be found virtually everywhere, and today, opportunities are rich through friends or networking activities. This is a more sociable day than most, and it’s especially important, both today and tomorrow, to reach out and make connections. Open the lines of communication, as opportunities to advance your current interests and to welcome new people and experiences abound now.

Cancer


Cancer

If your life can benefit from doing some research or investigating a particular topic further, dear Cancer, today is an excellent time to dig in.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

You have a very genuine desire to help and support others, dear Virgo, and this trait is strongly emphasized today. You can go to great lengths to find the information you need to help someone you care about, and can easily get a bit carried away with research or delving a little more deeply into whatever topic or project you’re currently interested in. There can be a stronger need for a bit of solitude or for familiar faces and activities today, as you’d prefer some time to recoup emotionally. However, your mind is very busy, and you should take advantage of this extra focus.

People are drawn to you today – they seem to appreciate all that you do, and find your presence calming and possibly even healing.

Sagittarius 

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

This can be a wonderful day for finding new ways to communicate, dear Sagittarius, as well as to show how much you care about someone through your words or simply the act of reaching out and making a connection. You may be in the position of go-between now. The Moon has moved into your sign, and emotions are heightened. There can be an urgency felt now when it comes to fulfilling your emotional needs, but taming this a little can go a long way towards greater happiness today. Be moderate, but listen closely to the feelings that surface now.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

There is a strong focus on making life more secure and fulfilling today, dar Capricorn. A happy and safe environment at home can be a prime motivator now, and you seem to have the support of others and circumstances to find ways to improve your well-being. You can also be experiencing deeper desires and a need for a stronger connection with someone special. The Moon has moved into your privacy zone, and attention is drawn to your inner world as well today. You may need more time alone to think, decide, and process recent events and feelings.

Aquarius


Aquarius

This is a strong day for working on pet projects or studies, dear Aquarius, as you can be super motivated to put time and effort into your work and interests.

Your ability to get to the point is strong, and your ability to see what others may need is powerful as well.

You are feeling particularly independent and focused. This is also a good day for releasing resentment or negative feelings in order to move past or beyond an emotionally “stuck” place. Today and tomorrow are particularly strong for letting go so that you can more fully appreciate the good in your life.

Daily Planet Tracker: Saturn in Scorpio, Now Until Sept., 17, 2015

 

 

Planet Tracker

Saturn in Scorpio

Now Until Sept 17, 2015

Saturn is the last planet visible to the naked eye. For millennia, it represented the limits of the solar system and came to symbolize time, structure and order. Saturn takes about 29 years to orbit the Sun, spending about two and a half years in each sign of the zodiac.

Saturn is the planet that says “no” but means “yes.” The no comes from Saturn showing us what isn’t working, sometimes in the form of frustrating blockages or delays. But these help us see where we need to put in effort to make concrete changes. Saturn says “yes” as the planet of crystallization that brings energy into matter. Saturn’s presence in a sign of the zodiac shows us where we are likely to meet limits and how to construct something useful.

Serious Saturn in survivalist Scorpio forces us to face the bottom line. Life and death, sex, power and our economic well being can be pushed to the limits during this two-year transit. Concentrating our efforts where they are most needed may require eliminating ideas, activities, objects or individuals that distract us from these essential tasks.

Take account of your desires, even the inappropriate ones. Knowing what you want helps you become a better negotiator in relationships. Being nice is, well, nice but doesn’t touch the depth of emotion associated with Scorpio. Partnerships grow when they are rooted in honesty, especially with ourselves. We can compromise in pursuit of our desires but if we don’t even know what they are, all we’re left with are manipulation and chance.

Getting the most out of our resources is another expression of Saturn in Scorpio. Scarcity could be a collective problem but, ideally, will lead to more efficient systems of production and distribution. Cleaning up toxins in the environment and within our bodies and minds are other healthy expressions of this transit.

How money is handled, especially involving insurance and debt, grows in importance with Saturn in Scorpio. There may be even more abuses in the financial world but that could be what it takes to make some significant reforms. Borrowing for well-defined purposes and with a realistic repayment schedule is an appropriate way to use this cycle.

Sexual repression is a dark side of Saturn in Scorpio. The AIDS epidemic was at a very high level in the early 80s, the last time this transit occurred. Responsibility for erotic inclinations doesn’t mean that they should be suppressed but rather that we deepen our understanding of them. Tantra, a form of sacred sexuality, teaches us about intimacy that is not possible when we deny this essential part of ourselves.

Water and Its Elementals

The element of water represents the soul and the emotions, the metaphysical principle that it reflects is  love. It corresponds to the west, Autumn Equinox, the Moon, the planets Neptune and Pluto, the feminine forces of nature, yin energy, negative polarity, the metal silver, the tarot suit of cups, the color blue, and the astrological signs Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio.

The Water element is personified by low-level beings (elementals) know as Undies. They are traditionally connected to the west quarter (or watchtower) o9f the ritual circle. Their name derives from the Latin word unda, meaning “a wave.” The ruler of this elemental race is a higher being, or guardian, called Necksa. In certain Wiccan traditions, the ruler of the Undies is called Zephyrus, whose name is taken from the Roman god of the west wind.

Water elementals may be invoked to strengthen clairvoyance, restore emotional balance, aid meditation, and enhance rituals and spells involving love, partnership, children or the home.

    Meaning love and affection, the topaz comes in many colors: yellow, pink, purple, orange and a variety of blues. It is believed to bring the wearer strength and intellect.

    FROM: http://www.almanac.com/content/birth-month-flowers-and-their-meanings#

    November Birthstone – Citrine

    The birthstone for November is the Citrine. The warm, fiery colors that exude from this precious stone are off the Van Gogh painting of the sunflowers. The name originates from the French word, “citrin”, meaning lemon. It has been found in the palest of yellows to a dark amber. The dark amber citrine, is referred to as Madeira, because of its resemblance to the wine.

    Since the beginning of time, man has dug within the earth to find useful tools for it’s survival. In these earlier times, there was a greater connection with the planet and its gifts and the cosmic world. With each advancement and achievement of the human species, we developed tools to dig deeper within the Earth’s crust. At one point we began to dig for treasures or sometimes they were come upon accidentally. With every unearthing of these treasures and gemstones, they were believed to emit a power to its discoverer. They were thought to offer healing and magical powers, strength or protection. Most of these treasures today represent the birthstones for each month of the year in the calendar we are familiar with today, the Gregorian or Western Calendar. As time went on, each stone was believed to represent a specific time or season of the year.

    Citrine is a form of quartz and the sister of Amethyst. It is worn to keep evil thoughts from one’s thinking and ward against venomous snakes. It is also a symbol of strength and hope. It is considered to having medicinal qualities used to remedy kidney and urinary complications. Throughout time it has been extensively utilized to improve the function of ones heart and digestive system. The citrine has the power to remove toxins form the body and treat muscular disorders. The vibrant color and “fire” of the citrine has always been symbolic of healing in general, as fire represents power and strength.

    Citrine is very scarce, which could be the reason that it is not mentioned until the first century B.C. The Romans were noted as the first to wear it, where they would fashion the stone into a style that is referred to, cabochon. For this style, the citrine first would be polished to a most brilliant shine and then the pieces of the unfaceted stone would be fashioned into their jewels. During the Romantic Period, artisans would utilize the warmth of the citrine to enhance the color gold jewelry.
