If You Were Born Today, June 18


If You Were Born Today, June 18

You are highly intuitive – an “old soul” who can understand people from all walks of life. Not much can get past you! Your ability to communicate articulately and, at the same time, with great warmth is admirable. You can be inconstant and contradictory at times, due to mood swings and emotional restlessness. You are respected, charming, and very fair with others. Famous people born today: Paul McCartney, Roger Ebert, Isabella Rossellini, Carol Kane.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

However, 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 now. 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.

Even so, since June 2017 and until April 2018, a Uranus transit to your Sun helps you out. Perhaps ironically, restrictions and cutting back lead to more freedom. Exciting changes and new interests are likely during this period. It’s easier than ever to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You are able to find creative solutions to problems now. Flexibility is the key to success. Your personality is sparkling, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life.

This is a good time for both teaching and learning. Researching cooking, health, and nutrition can be fruitful now. It’s also a strong time for marketing. You seek out nourishment and naturally nurture and support others this year. Needs and cravings are in strong focus, and you are drawn to those things you see as wholesome, healthy, and natural. Despite a busy social or romantic life, you’re also boosting up your domestic life in rewarding ways.

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 are more imaginative and attuned to the world of beauty and romance in the year ahead. Gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy and to attract what you want into your life. There could be truly “magical” times on a romantic and social level. You are likely to idealize and expand a relationship through sensitive interactions and a more giving approach. Benefits come through paying attention to your dreams and intuitions, as well as through creativity.

Cooperation more than competition leads to benefits this year. Creativity thrives this year. Even so, you continue to work on structuring your life and maturing in key areas until December. There can be some blocks to work around until then as you adjust to increased responsibilities. Ultimately, restructuring leads to more freedom.


2017 Summer Love Horoscopes

2017 Summer Love Horoscopes

See if love will sizzle for you in the hot summer season


This summer Venus will be on the move! She’ll sail through cerebral Gemini from July 4-31 and during this time we’ll want to sample the most interesting possibilities in love. Dull routine will be the kiss of death in relationships during this time, and mental connections are a must.

Then, from July 31 – August 26 Venus will move through the tender sign of Cancer. Now, emotional security is paramount in matters of the heart. Sensitive souls rejoice!

From August 26 – September 19, however, it’s time to have fun! Venus will tour flamboyant Leo during this time, and wants to party, live, and love to the fullest.

Rounding out Venus’ trek this summer will be the eclipses. On August, 7 a Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius will be at a perfect angle to Jupiter in relationship-oriented Libra. You and your love might reach a personal aspiration together. Then, on August 21 a Solar Eclipse in Leo is trine Uranus — your heart will be ready to jump out of its comfort zone!


Aries (March 21 – April 19)

This will surely be your summer for lovin’! Mars, your ruling planet, will tour your romance sector from July 20 – September 5. During this once-every-two-years event, you’ll enjoy a boost in libido as well as opportunities to truly enjoy all the pleasures life has to offer.

It gets even better at the New Moon in Leo on July 23, which will collide with Mars. You will surely have an opportunity to meet someone new and fall in love, if single. Don’t worry, if you miss this New Moon you’re in luck. On August 21 another New Moon will fall in the same part of your chart — this time a Solar Eclipse!

Finally, for good measure, Venus enters your romance sector on August 25, and remains here through September 19. As you can see, your summer is filled with back-to-back opportunities for love. Yum!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Domestic matters will be a stronger focus for you during most of the summer, so it’s possible that romance will take a back seat. Even so, you’ll have significant opportunity to nourish your love life this season.

It’s possible that the reason why you’re so focused on home is because you and your lover are ready to set up house together. If so, you’ll find that the process of moving in together really makes your relationship come alive. If you’re already living together, it’s likely that you’ll be busy redecorating your home or working on a renovation project. You’ll both put your heart and soul into it!

If you’re single, pay attention to the magic of September. On September 5 Mars will move into your true love sector for the first time in two years. This will help you go after whomever it is you’re drawn to the most.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Your magnetism will be through the roof from July 4-31 when Venus tours your sign. If you’re single, you’ll notice more people giving you second glances as well as attention. It’ll be a fortunate time to meet someone new because you’re truly giving off your best vibes. If you’re in a relationship, then your mate will help you feel extra valued and beautiful.

One difficult day for love will be July 24 when Venus opposes Saturn, now in your relationship sector. It’s possible that your relationship wrinkles will rear themselves during this time, and you’ll need to decide whether or not it’s worth the work of ironing them out. You might also feel restricted in your love life during this time. Perhaps a relationship obligation is all work and no play. If this happens, remember that fairy tale romance can’t be 24/7. Someone has to do the dishes, pay the bills, and care for the kids.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Venus will tour your sign from July 31 – August 25, making these weeks your very best for summer romance. If you’re single, you’ll notice far more attention than usual from potential suitors. Your confidence will be strong and you’ll look and feel more vibrant than you have in quite some time. As a result, others will genuinely be drawn your way! If you’re in a relationship, it’s likely that you’ll feel extra supported during this time.

One exception to this will be near August 15 when Venus opposes Pluto, the planet of power and control, now in your partnership sector. You and your sweetie might have a massive disagreement over a financial situation, and your partner may insist on having the upper hand. If this happens, you’ll likely feel manipulated and might hold back affection because of it. Remember, the only way to get past this situation is to move through it. Together.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Undoubtedly, this will be a memorable summer for you in many ways — especially when it comes to love. There is so much energy in your sign at every possible time frame during the summer, how can you NOT be favored? It all starts with Mars moving through Leo from July 20 – September 5. This once-every-two-years event will bless you with more stamina and ambition to pursue anything — or anyone — you’ve got your sights set on. If the goal is romance, you will not fail.

A New Moon in Leo on July 23 insists on making your life brand new, and if you don’t “get it” the first time, you’ll experience another, more potent, New Moon in your sign on August 21. This will be a Solar Eclipse, and it will be at a gorgeous angle to Uranus, the planet of sudden events. Expect a happy, life-changing, surprise!

Last but not least, from August 25 – September 19, Venus will tour your sign. This summer, you are certainly the favored one. Enjoy the cosmic treats!

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

There’s a lot of undercover energy at work for you this summer, Virgo. You clearly want to have fun and enjoy the pleasures of romance, but for the most part, you’re likely to do so in private. Mars will move through your 12th House of Secrets and Escape from July 20 – September 5, giving you this incognito vibe. You do want to experience romance and allow your creative self to shine, but it’s possible that circumstances beyond your control will necessitate that you settle for quiet moments rather than loud ones. That’s ok — romance is still there!

If single, you do have a stretch of social time from July 31 – August 25, when Venus tours your friendship sector. This will be when you get the most social invitations and have a wonderful opportunity to step out into the sun and be noticed.

Your time will truly arrive, however, after September 5, when Mars enters your sign. Then, nothing can stop you from showing everyone exactly what you want out of life and love.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

This summer will surely be one of your most memorable! You’ll not only enjoy time with pals more than you have in ages, but there’s a distinct possibility that you and a friend will become lovers under the magical moonlight of those endless summer nights.

It all begins on July 20 when Mars enters your friendship sector, and remains here through September 5. This will give you the motivation to get out more, join groups, and attend fun events. If there is any chemistry between you and a friend or acquaintance, it will become palpable during this time.

Two New Moons, also in your friendship zone, occur this summer as well — one on July 23 and the second (which is also a Solar Eclipse) on August 21. With both these New Moons happening in Leo, this suggests romance and fun connected to friends. If you’re already in a relationship, you and your sweetheart might vacation with pals or spend a lot of time attending creative events together.

Last but not least, Venus will ALSO move into your 11th House of Friends and Groups on August 26, and remains here until September 19. Love is definitely connected to your social life. This is when it blossoms.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

This summer might not feel like it’s the most exciting when it comes to romance, but there are certainly spurts of pleasurable opportunity that you’ll want to maximize. From July 4-31, Venus will move through your 8th House of Shared Resources and Intimacy. If you’re partnered up with someone, it’ll be a significant time. You and your mate will be able to forge a deeper, more meaningful bond because you’ll both be willing to reveal more to one another. Chipping away at each other’s guards and melting vulnerabilities might be scary, but during this time, it’ll be more rewarding than you realize.

Another advantage to this transit will be financial. You might hear positive news about your partner’s finances that will surely benefit you as well. A joint investment will also likely do quite nicely.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

This summer is strong for romantic potential, with opportune times for both single and partnered Sagittarians! If you’re in a relationship, the good news starts immediately. From July 4-31 Venus will tour your partnership sector, adding grace and harmony to your love connection. This will be a supportive time to truly enjoy each other’s company and remind one another why you are so in love.

There is one day, however, that might be touchy. On July 24 Venus will oppose Saturn, reminding the both of you just how serious your commitment to one another is. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with responsibility near this time, it might chip away at the passion.

From July 31 – August 26 however, you and your partner will find your intimate life reaching new depths and heights. Finances also look favorable.

For the single Sagittarius, expect an opportunity to meet someone you’re extremely attracted to while you’re traveling abroad this summer. You might also meet this person while you’re expanding your intellectual horizons through summer classes or a workshop.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

From July 31 – August 26 love planet Venus will move through your partnership sector, giving beautiful potential for you and your sweetheart to see improvements in your relationship. If you’re seriously dating someone, then it’s possible that during this time you’ll decide to strengthen your commitment to one another. You might become engaged, get married, or move in together.

One day you’ll want to tread cautiously around is August 15. At this time Venus will oppose Pluto in your sign. As a result, it’s possible that you’ll be more concerned with retaining all of the power in your relationship. If calling the shots is more vital to you than truly relating, you might receive a wakeup call.

Aquarius (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

This summer you can look forward to significant relationship developments. Your 7th House of Partnership will be quite busy, hosting Mars, a New Moon, a New Moon Solar Eclipse, and Venus all at different time frames this summer. This is significant and rare Astrology to have all condensed in one part of your chart.

There is no doubt that you and your partner are in for a fantastic fresh start. You’re both motivated to make love work and you genuinely want to give each other the very best. You might need to clear the air about some underlying issues one or both of you are upset about, but don’t worry — this is going to lead to the fresh start you both need.

If you’re single pay attention to July 4-31 when Venus tours your romance sector. You’ll have the best prospects to meet someone new and fall in love.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

If you’re single and hoping for a summer romance, you’ll want to circle the dates from July 21 – August 26. That’s when Venus, the planet of amore will tour the area of your chart connected to meeting someone new, dating, and falling in love. This is the area of pleasure and fun, so you can count on these weeks being the most memorable this season. A work romance might also be on the horizon for you from August 26 – September 19, so be aware of that potential as well.

If you’re in a relationship, then after September 5 you’ll start to have much more action in your love life. At this time Mars will enter your partnership sector. For the rest of the summer and into the fall, you and your mate will prioritize finding ways to spice up your love connection.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, June 18th

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, June 18th



Aries Horoscope

You may be dealing with some obstacles related to communication or equipment breakdowns, blocks, or complications today, dear Aries. You can be seeing the glass half empty as a result of a Mercury-Saturn opposition active today. Your ideas or requests may be denied, or others are shutting down your argument or challenging your viewpoint. Look for the lesson from any critique that might come in today, even if you feel particularly resistant to do so. There can be some good news mixed in now, and you might reach a better position with a sibling or acquaintance. Gaining some surprise freedoms or discovering new ways of doing things can result. The Moon spends the day in your sign, and others are following your lead.


Taurus HoroscopeYou’re receiving mixed messages today, dear Taurus. On the one hand, you could find some people a little too rigid with their ideas or plans, and on the other, there is a sense that you’re moving forward and there is good energy with you for taking you in that direction. There can be some difficulties getting to a comfortable dialogue with people close to you today. You may be experiencing tension and fear of the unknown related to finances or support. Financial or emotional blocks or challenges may help you see or discover new methods and courses of action, however. Breaking out of the routine in small ways can help to inspire you today. The Moon spends the day in your private, anonymous sector, and you may prefer to work behind the scenes or keep a low profile to catch up on rest.



People in your life may seem to want to block you or call you out, dear Gemini, and for some of you, a delay or block is entirely possible now. A significant other may be critical or aloof when you’re looking for support, or you are otherwise left to your own resources in some way now with Mercury in your sign opposed by Saturn. Try your very best to focus on things that you can truly improve and have the power to control. In fact, another influence with you today can help you discover clever workarounds, possibly as a direct result of challenges or blocks. You may be entertaining new methods or ideas and breaking away from stereotypes and routines. A friend or acquaintances may pull you out of a funk or show support for your ideas.


CancerProblems related to work, health, or routines can weigh you down a little today, dear Cancer. There may be heavier demands on you when it comes to chores or work and dealings with people you spend your day with can be a little touch and go. This can be due to taking one another too literally. Give yourself and others breathing room. If you’ve been doing far more than your share, then take steps to make changes. Challenges or blocks encountered today can also lead to new and exciting directions. You may be drawing on your memory, wisdom, and intuition to advances your goals now. You may find workarounds to problems that actually save you time or lead to other breakthroughs. Aim to open up your mind to new approaches that can be truly valuable. The Moon spends the day at the top of your chart, encouraging you to put more of yourself into your work or performance.


Leo Glyph Symbol Horoscope

There may be some reason to stop what you’re doing and face a challenge or block today, dear Leo. Mercury opposes Saturn today, which can point to critical or defensive behavior. When Saturn is involved, criticism may be irritating but it can also lead you to firm up your work or ideas, so take the good things from the experience and discard the rest! It’s best to keep conversations light as they can quickly take a negative turn. Even if you need to address an issue, you might decide to postpone it to an all-around more receptive time. Despite all of this, you’re receiving a boost of emotional fuel for enjoying learning and personal interests. There can be a reason to experiment and explore new theories and methods. In fact, the challenges you face may lead you to these discoveries. Changes are needed to free yourself from certain restrictive situations or people. Today can be liberating in spots and hampering in other areas, but ultimately good for solving problems.


Virgo Symbol HoroscopeWith Mercury opposing Saturn today, dear Virgo, you may be dealing with some critical or defensive people. Conversations can be on the touchy side, particularly if fears and insecurities are getting in the way of regular conversation. Responsibilities to a parent, family, or domestic matters can weigh on you again today, or there may be disapproval to deal with that frustrates you. Balancing your personal and professional life is an ongoing struggle for you this year, and this theme can be in the spotlight now and this week. However, if you aim to prioritize and postpone sensitive topics for a more easygoing time, you’ll do just fine. Blocks or delays can lead to creative and clever workarounds. A Sun-Uranus transit helps you find outlets for expressing yourself that don’t involve choosing your words carefully. You might enjoy a nice change in your usual routine and improvising can be fun.



An opposition between Mercury and Saturn across your communications sector can point to some frustrating blocks today, dear Libra. There may be criticisms or negative attitudes to deal with now, and what may be considered a regular difference in opinion on another day could turn into a full-blown affair today. Aim to pull out the valuable lessons from slowdowns, blocks, and criticism and discard the rest. As well, aim to be patient and do your best until you’re in a better place. Another influence with you today suggests that buckling down in one area can release you in another. How you deal with blocks and delays can make all the difference, and workarounds can be inventive. You might see an opportunity you missed in the past related to a relationship. Not following plans to the letter may result in pleasurable detours.


Scorpio Horoscope

The Moon spends the day in your sector of daily routines, dear Scorpio, and while it’s not the most glamorous of house positions, you can feel particularly motivated to take care of details and get things done. You have help in so doing and with an open mind, you might discover a new method or idea for making life a little easier. A Mercury-Saturn opposition can put a damper on things, particularly related to money, ownership, and boundaries, but this, too, can lead to the discovery of new and improved methods of dealing with life. Relationship and financial decisions don’t come easily at the moment, and it may be better to conserve your energy than to argue a point or push an issue. Work on strengthening your position. Focus on the positive, as you may very well discover a brand new interest, product, or activity that excites you.


Sagittarius Horoscope

There can be some obstacles to face and frustrations to deal with today, dear Sagittarius, but once over that hump, you’re in a great position to move along a clearer path forward. A significant other may seem impractical or less than responsible today, as you can feel incensed to get things done and you can have a hard time getting others on board. Perhaps someone isn’t taking you seriously enough. Seek out a middle ground and aim to loosen up a little–you may need to make a compromise. Workarounds to blocks or delays today can help you out as you see new ways of doing things and relating with others. A Sun-Uranus sextile today helps you out in the relationship department if you decide to tap into the positive energy. This can be a time for freer expression of your creative side and appreciation for your originality.


Capricorn Horoscope

A Mercury-Saturn opposition today can point to the need to deal with blocks or challenges before moving forward, dear Capricorn. While handling niggly details can be frustrating, your workarounds can lead you to exciting discoveries and perhaps new and improved methods. With Saturn in your solar twelfth house, you could be dealing with worries about your effectiveness or performance. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, aim to slow yourself down and don’t be afraid to enlist some help. Taking a small break from a problem can help you get a new perspective and can ease the pressure. For some of you, there can be the need to help others competing with your desire to get your own things done. Do your best to meet your responsibilities so that you can move forward more freely. In fact, a Sun-Uranus influence helps you in this respect. New ideas, technology, methods, and approaches can be a boon now, particularly around the home and with your work and health routines. You might find release from recent tension through domestic or work activities that support growth and invite invention and progress.



Saturn opposes Mercury today, dear Aquarius, and you could feel that responsibilities to others are getting in the way of your favorite activities. However, don’t allow this to get you down. While remembering your obligations and knowing your limitations can be helpful and practical, harping on them won’t serve you well. If others seem a little unsympathetic or self-absorbed now, do your best to power through it by reaching a compromise and finding a balance between duty and pleasure. Do what you know is right for you and, eventually, others will come around. Helping you to stay flexible today is the Sun’s sextile to your ruler, Uranus. You can focus on creative play and expression, and you might enjoy some helpful or exciting conversations and progress in your projects and interests. Siblings, acquaintances, and love interests can be supportive or appreciative. People may be admiring your intellect, quirkiness, or sense of humor.



You’re working on strengthening and firming up your career or long-term goals and perhaps your reputation as well these days, dear Pisces. This is due to Saturn transiting the top of your solar chart (until December), and while this is perfect for you in the long run, there can be times when you feel a little too noticed, judged, or accountable, and possibly overworked or stressed. Mercury’s opposition to Saturn today can exacerbate some of these things as they can directly compete with your desire for more peace, quiet, comfort, and familiarity. Feeling the weight of your responsibilities makes unwinding a challenge. When it comes to others’ feedback, try to tune out the negative elements, if any, and focus on constructive ones. Another influence with you today engages your imagination and pulls up your inventive side. Drawing up new plans or using new methods to approach your business, family lie, money, or regular routines can be successful and a whole lot of fun today.
