Your Daily Tarot Card for Saturday, June 30



However the day goes, you’ll be able to enjoy yourself by noticing how big a part is played by beauty in your daily existence. There is no such thing as a senseless act of kindness, since it has such power to feed and empower your soul. You can salvage the messiest situation or cheer up the unhappiest person by appreciating the wonders that are all around us.

If You Were Born Today, June 30

You have strong desires and passions, and you can live a somewhat dramatic life. You are warm and caring most of the time, and a little controlling and bossy at other times. Love and partnership complete you. You crave stability overall but your need for excitement can attract unusual circumstances into your life. You are an interesting conversationalist with truly unique ideas, and you go out of your way to make others happy. Famous people born today: Lena Horne, Susan Hayward, Mike Tyson, Michael Phelps.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your birthday falls shortly after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period ahead of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially pronounced and rewarding this year.

Saturn forms an opposition to your Sun until December (since April). Saturn calls upon you to identify the weaker areas of your life and to fix or strengthen them. Take the time to sort out details, improve your work, and become more efficient. Taking a slow and steady approach to life is necessary during this period. Pushing too hard will likely lead to frustration and setbacks. Take it easy and work on self-improvement. Results are not immediate, but will eventually come and bring healthy rewards. Relationships may be (or seem) more challenging than usual while Saturn opposes your Sun.

This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.

You might often get frustrated if results of your actions are not instant, but it’s best to cultivate some patience when it comes to realizing your goals. As well, if you are not getting the results you crave, consider that you might be aiming too high or too wide.

Venus in hard aspect to Jupiter in your Solar Return chart brings love and romance into your life, but you could encounter problems due to overblown expectations or excessive behavior. You may overindulge and would do well to strike a balance between pleasures and the obligations of daily life.

If there are health issues this year, look for blockages or constrictions since Saturn is involved with the Node.

This can be an excellent period for opening up communications with others, as you are more sensitive than usual and more willing to listen. Getting your point across is easier — it’s not only about what specific words you choose to communicate, you intuitively express the meaning and intention behind the words. You can effectively use words to soothe, heal, and teach this year. You are also more open to new ways of looking at problems, thus it’s considerably easier to find solutions.

Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface this year. Making connections with others from different backgrounds may figure strongly. Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the greater good this year.

You’re firming up some areas of your life until November, and this can be a period of harder work and discipline and perhaps some challenges. However, as the year advances, you’re sure to feel freer and attract more positivity into your life. Some relationships may be feisty or complicated and there can be a significant break in your social life, but improvements are possible. With work, you’re expanding your interests in satisfying ways. You can find yourself in high demand during this period.

2018 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is generally not as active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract what–and who–you want into your life now. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect, develop, build, and attract.

2019 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It’s likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for June 30

June ends with a bang rather than a whimper. The good news concerns a trine from Mercury in Leo to healing-maestro Chiron in Aries (1:11pm), and the moon’s overall enhancement of Aquarius as a zodiacal sign emphasizing the establishment of long-lasting friendships. However, mental and emotional tensions can easily get out of hand as Mercury squares radical-change agent Uranus (6:03am), the moon makes its monthly conjunction with Mars (4:11pm) followed quickly by a dubious, 150-degree tie between the sun and Mars (4:30pm). When the universe overwhelms human souls with a massive dose of martial energy, rash behavior and volatile activities often become the temporary rule rather than the exception. The answer to most of today’s challenges is to reach out to dear ones with kindness and empathy. Gear up for a double-dose of disturbing Venus alignments tomorrow while Juno enters Taurus leading to its formidable merger with Uranus on July 5.

[Note to readers: All times are now calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

The Moon is traveling through Aquarius today. Go against the grain. Fight for a cause. Stand up for the underdog.

Attraction to all that is new and unusual, and an instinctive need for improvement, characterize the Moon in Aquarius.

Planets in the Signs

Planets in the Signs

When a child is born, preparation of his or her horoscope gets largely impacted by the placement of planets in specific zodiac signs. As part of their eternal journey in and around the zodiac signs, their association with respect to the birth position and their calculation in ascending or descending degrees are indicative of relevant powers getting activated and their manipulation thereby on the individual’s life.

When understanding the prediction science vis-à-vis positioning of planets in the signs, moon is known to be a planet that has a short period of association with a sign thus influencing an individual’s life quite marginally. Soon after the transit of moon in a sign starts giving specific signals, it moves to another because its stay of duration is as low as twenty eight days. Subsequently, moon also takes less time in completing its cycle and reaching back to its original position in the horoscope. Weekly or monthly forecasts that we keep coming across in newspapers or TV channels are predictions based upon this fast movement of moon.

A planet’s conservative transition can be seen as its longer duration of stay in zodiacs. As a result, the impact on individual’s life can bet largely visible and persistent for a period. This conservative transition is termed as retrogression. All planets, except the sun and the moon, get into retrogression so as to show their good or bad results.

Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars, which are closer to the Sun, are called inner planets while Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are farer to Sun and are called outer planets. Transit of these inner and outer planets in signs show varied impact on the individual’s life. Outer planets have a bigger impact with respect to their large duration of stay. Unlike inner planets, outer planets may not return their original position to show a visible impact on the individual’s behaviour, character and life. A slight alteration in the degree of existence of outer planets may drastically change the life of a being to the extent of getting an exorbitant rise, earning some recognition or meeting a fatal accident, relationship resulting in divorce.

In getting exact predictions, the birth position of a planet is crucial because it corresponds to the physical and mental aspect of the bearer. Positioning of a planet in the signs moderates or extremes their expression and also ruling, on individual life. That planet’s nature with respect to the characteristics of relevant sign and its natal position makes the horoscope reader see all the good or bad impressions it has to make.

Jupiter in signs is a shining beacon that guides an individual towards their ultimate self. It is the essence that elevates the individual to heights and areas never known by him/her. It also directly refers to the growth and expansion of an individual in terms of his/her thinking and understanding. Jupiter is also known to stay in a particular sign for about a year.

Neptune in the Signs

Neptune in signs guides each individual and even whole generations towards their destiny. Extrasensory perception, illusions, fantasy, imagination and dreams all fall under the realm of Neptune. All those individuals who have a prominent Neptune in their signs will be drawn towards mysticism and other such spiritual pursuits.

This growth comes in the form of practice and hard work. Many often have to go through various levels of trial and error before finally achieving their goals.

Neptune in Aquarius

The most predominant prediction made at the time of entrance of Neptune in Aquarius is emergence of a spiritual love, with too many people getting romanticized with each other and standing united, not only those who know each other but as strangers too. This planet-zodiac union symbolizes love for humanity as a whole and this feeling of oneness is more telepathic nature .

Neptune in Aquarius

The most predominant prediction made at the time of entrance of Neptune in Aquarius is emergence of a spiritual love, with too many people getting romanticized with each other and standing united, not only those who know each other but as strangers too. This planet-zodiac union symbolizes love for humanity as a whole and this feeling of oneness is more telepathic nature and at the same time, prompts an inclination towards accepting the existence of groups frankly. This inclination gets extended to a liking for respect for others’ viewpoints, feelings and in creating a win-win situation for everyone by sharing an open space. Even further, every individual’s contribution in the group gets equally valued as if the entire group is working for one purpose & it cannot be achieved unless everybody’s contribution counts!

Neptune in Aquarius provokes more of an eccentric approach of individuals towards love and it is also more liberal. As a result, the spirituality getting prompted sideways comes into picture as an essential element for the support of those into a real bond of love or friendship. Period of Stay of Neptune in Aquarius is the period when people meet other people who are friends, lovers or relatives of their previous lives and in this period, they also know that we are involved in not one, but numerous types of love with different people. With new loves getting born, old myths about love getting broken and need felt for a more broad-minded outlook about them, there is an indication that it was time we invented fresh perspectives about all this.

A combination rarest of its kind, Neptune in Aquarius indicates world’s strong inclination towards environment consciousness, naturopathic healing, spiritualism, awareness towards inner happiness, and the awakening within. Thus, this period of high romanticism is free from envies and is based more upon aligning, acceptance and sympathy. You should not be surprised if newer mysteries related to mind and spirit unfold in front of your eyes as a result of scientific advancements. Closeness with religion and belief in God gets noticed in this period of Neptune in Aquarius and this gets visibly seen in the form of love and empathy for each other.
