Daily General Horoscopes for June 8


As Mercury, planet of communication spends his first full day in your home and family sector he’s giving you a chance to begin the process of opening the communication lines on the home front. This is the first planetary activity you’ve had on the home front this year and it comes just as you’re moving into some defining and busy weeks on the work front. From the get go, do what you can to ensure you have the right work/life balance.


The money gods have been hard at work in your chart over the last few days, with just the second lunar eclipse in your financial sector in a decade and the second and last Venus eclipse in your income sector, in your lifetime, falling within 2 days of each other. This has put all your cards on the table and on the income front in particular has created a new sense of resolve and despite any pressure or intensity, a new sense of confidence.


Both the lunar eclipse in your relationship sector earlier in the week and the Venus eclipse 2 days ago all involved the Sun and have already shaped the coming year, whether you realise it or not. You will always be confronted by a Full Moon during your birthday month, making sure that you’re not asleep at the wheel and the Sun and Venus will often align in your sign, giving you a clear sense of what you want from the future. What was different this year, was the strength of the message and the wake up calls.


While the internal focus and a sense of nostalgia will remain Mercury, planet of communication has had enough of that. Mercury has returned to your sign bringing the first planetary activity for the year and while your new solar year and birthday month won’t begin for another 13 days, this gives you a head start. Expect the mental fog to clear from today, giving you a lot more mental clarity.


Your one real escape from life’s pressures and realities is a growing sense of camaraderie in your chart. With the laws of attraction and synchronicity in play, it’s a sense of togetherness that is making being a team player more important than ever. On both the personal and professional fronts, it’s when you’re linking up with others that you’ll feel the most support and you’re more likely to find your wings.


Life has become a lot more professionally focused over recent weeks and this is only going to continue, making it important to hold onto the balance between work and play that you’ve worked hard to achieve. It’s Mercury’s return to a social and serendipitous part of your chart that has helped put things into perspective, ensuring that the communication lines are open when it comes to personal and professional networking.


Just 3 days after Neptune turned retrograde in your work sector, bringing an active phase on the work front to an end and beginning the review phase, Mercury has returned to open new doors on the career front. While Mercury himself is only here for 2 weeks, with the Sun returning before he leaves and then Venus in early August, this is when new doors start to open. Mercury’s intellectual savvy gives you a chance to review your options.


After a financially dominated week to date and even more financial forces building, there is a chance for some light relief and a different perspective today, as Mercury settles into a more adventurous part of your chart. Mercury is only here for a few weeks, but creates a chance to open your mind to things in life that are free or to the options across all the currencies of your life. At what is a highly charged time for money matters Mercury is here to remind you that it’s not all about the money.


The Moon leaves your income sector today, just hours after Mercury returned to your financial sector, keeping the focus on your money game but bringing a shift in dynamics. Yet if you can hold onto the financial instincts and the nose for money the Moon leaves you with and the smart head for money Mercury is now bringing into play, this will give you a real edge. The first planetary activity in your financial sector for the year gives you a chance to bring things up to speed.


Mercury, planet of communication has broken free from the forces on the work front, returning to your relationship sector just 4 days before Jupiter, planet of luck is due to leave your romantic sector. You’ve reached a point of no return, with the professional focus only intensifying over the coming weeks, but you have a chance today to counter this with equal focus on your personal life. It starts with a chance to open the communication lines.


Mercury’s return to your work sector has been a small step by a small planet but a giant leap as far as your professional year is concerned. You’ve had no planetary activity in either of your professional houses since the Sun left your career sector last November and while Mercury is only here for 2 weeks this smart and intellectually savvy energy kicks off a professional phase that won’t run its course until 2015.


Mercury’s return to your romantic and creative sector is destined to have a big impact over the coming months, even though he’s only here for 2 weeks. At what is an important time on the relationship front this creates a chance to bring a sense of romance back into play, as well as a chance to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. All of a sudden simply going through the motions is no longer enough.
