May 1 through May 14
It is quite possible that situations surrounding your education, mode of transportation, mechanical skills, or travels will unexpectedly improve during this period. The circumstances and people you encounter will act as either the stimulation or the cause of situations that benefit you. However, it is unlikely that you will have any control or ability to manipulate them in any way. Your job is to react as enthusiastically and expediently as possible to whatever favorable situations come along. Under this influence new, perhaps radically different ideas, methods, machinery, technology, and information are likely to figure in your success. Contacts with siblings, neighbors, and those you deal with routinely may suddenly prove highly stimulating or take on some other unexpected but favorable circumstances.

May 1 through May 3, Exact on May 2
Circumstances provide a measure of ego-gratification, the chance for you to feel good about yourself, stronger and more vital. Under this influence an attitude of helpfulness and generosity on your part will reflect well, inspire the same feeling in others toward you, and indirectly benefit your personal goals. You may be given a boost by superiors or others who hold power or influence in your life. Unless negative situations are around to suggest otherwise this is a good time to ask for favors from those in charge. Carpe diem, seize the day. Do not be afraid to go out and create your own opportunity.

Transit MERCURY trine natal Uranus
May 3 through May 4, Exact on May 3
Information, ideas, and activities you encounter during this period are apt to deal with larger societal issues that have nothing much to do with your personal affairs. However, since this is a favorable influence, you may be able to turn such otherwise impersonal ideas or situations to some personal advantage. It is an excellent time, for example, to attend meetings or organizational activities. Unexpected personal benefits may be gained either through the information you pick up, or as a result of the people you impress with your knowledge or ideas. Discuss hopes and aspirations, join organizations, and expand your circle of friends. You may be successful at this time if you are involved with scientific and technical projects, computers, travel by air, international finances, and sociological issues.

May 2 through May 3, Exact on May 3
Do not attempt anything that requires logic and clear thinking. Information and ideas may be illusive, intentionally deceptive, or even quite dangerous. Trying to make a wise decision or get at the truth is impossible. This is not a favorable period for travel on water, photography, business transactions (especially those that involve water-, drug-, or oil-related products or property), and spiritual studies or activities. Under this influence there is increased potential to engage in self-pity and despair, or to suffer personal loss or disappointment. Avoid incurring debt or lending money to others. This is definitely a time for careful deliberation and cautious behavior.

May 1 through Jun 30, Exact on May 3, Jun 25
The current influence is not one that is likely to measurably change the ways things are going unless other, stronger influences occurring at this time promote a similar atmosphere. It is worth noting however-- it adds a positive energy to your circumstances that can lead to either successfully gaining or exercising a position of seniority. It may also be a chance to make use of previous hard work and long-term planning, or perhaps to develop such habits that will lead to greater success in the future. Keep in mind that this influence is opportunity that can later become the reality, not the reality itself. Other opportunities to look for under this influence relate to business or the chance to make nontraditional or unorthodox methods or ideas work within traditional systems with no harm to either.

Transit JUPITER trine natal Moon
May 1 through May 9, Exact on May 4
Unless negative circumstances spoil the otherwise fortunate influence that surrounds you, some of your fondest wishes may come true. Gaining emotional satisfaction best describes the potential of this period. You should have no trouble attracting love and affection. Prosperity surrounds your home and family. Other potentially fortunate circumstances involve the higher education of children, long-distance travel with family members, or traveling abroad to visit relatives or a childhood home. Good fortune comes to you through women and children. Your imagination and artistic or creative talents flourish. In spite of the promising circumstances, there are certain potential situations to avoid. The generosity and good feelings that prevail at this time may prompt you to acquire more than you need, which in turn poses the danger of wastefulness. Food and nourishment are apt to be abundant, though that in itself may be a problem if your own consumption results in unwanted weight or other physical complaints that result from a too-rich diet. Your instincts and intuition are enhanced and well worth listening to. The sale or purchase of a home or domestic items is highly favored under this influence.

Transit SUN sextile natal Venus
May 4 through May 6, Exact on May 5
Superiors are favorably disposed toward you. Take any opportunity you get to socialize or interact with authority figures and those with influence. You may get a chance to establish partnership or some type of alliance with an important individual, that is, someone who holds greater financial, social, or intellectual position than your own. If you don't think such a situation is likely to come your way, then go out and create one. Listen to those who advise you on social matters or counsel you with regard to personal relationships. Under this influence luck is with you, but being able to take advantage of it depends on being among people. Don't pass up any circumstance that allows you to demonstrate your personal charm or attractiveness. Opportunities to enjoy beauty and luxury, to pursue romance, pleasure, and entertainment may be on your current agenda.

Transit MERCURY square natal Jupiter
May 7 through May 8, Exact on May 7
Information and ideas have to be gathered, methods discussed, and choices made. On top of that, you may experience difficulty and frustration when you try to organize everything simply because of the volume of things that can come your way during this period. Under this influence details can easily slip away, so you have to make sure that you get all of the information you need, and that the information you get is accurate. The other possibility is that you become involved with so many details it becomes difficult for you to see the overall picture. You must also avoid the potential tendency to exaggerate or expand on a situation or the information at hand. All in all, progress is likely to occur one way or another.

Transit VENUS square natal Mars
May 8 through May 12, Exact on May 10
Competitive spirits are aroused in your current circumstances. As long as you don't become overly aggressive, or allow others to assume that manner in dealing with you, the potential for excitement and stimulation of a physical nature can lead to some great adventures. You can use the added energy for many things, not the least of which is to burn off calories, accomplish the tasks at hand, and enjoy the stimulation of challenging interactions with the opposite sex. Don't overreact physically to insult and allow the pursuit of pleasure or revenge to rob you of what might have been just the right prod you needed to get moving. Maturity is needed.

Transit SUN trine natal Pluto
May 10 through May 12, Exact on May 11
People or circumstances you encounter under this influence can be used to increase self-control or gain additional power in some area of your life. You'll be able to get to the bottom of things, perhaps with the fortunate assistance of those in charge. A good time to develop and use your own resourcefulness and ability to separate what is important from what is not. Impressive determination, recuperative power, and concentration are available.

Transit SATURN square natal Jupiter
May 5 through May 21, Exact on May 13
The path to personal and economic growth, intellectual accomplishment or recognition, political success, and spiritual fulfillment is likely to be hampered by one sort of frustration or another during this period. Under this influence endless rules and regulations, imposing authority figures, or just plain hard work may be inhibitory factors that block your progress. You may be required to give back to others some of the success and prosperity you have been given, and even if you are more than willing to do so, you do not have the means to do it just now. In spite of the negative potentials, there is also an implication that frustrating circumstances may only be a temporary test of your strength and determination to succeed--a test that in the end, you can pass.

Transit SUN opposed natal Neptune
May 13 through May 15, Exact on May 14
Under this influence there's no telling what sort of impression you're making on others, especially on superiors or authority figures. For no reason that is readily apparent to you they may find you vague or mysterious. This does not have to be a problem unless you find yourself in circumstances where it is important that others not form misconceptions where you are concerned. Not a favorable time to seek spiritual counsel, take new medication, or be around water.

Transit MERCURY trine natal Moon
May 13 through May 15, Exact on May 14
Everything should flow smoothly and successfully. Everyone in your world is where they are supposed to be, doing what they are supposed to be doing. Machinery hums along, your body functions well, and your mind is free from annoying distractions. Under this fortunate influence meetings and discussions are not likely to be disrupted by dissension. Business transactions that involve your home or real estate property as well as domestic items are favored. Requests that you make are likely to be granted, and there is also likely to be personal advantage in granting others what they request of you. Teaching as well as learning is highly beneficial. An excellent time to contact or visit relatives. News and information you read or hear is apt to be emotionally satisfying in one way or another.

Transit VENUS square natal Sun
May 14 through May 17, Exact on May 15
You may find yourself in disagreement with others over principles or value judgments during this period. In the end it may be a matter of having to artfully explain your position while letting others have an equal right to their own opinions. The potential for discord may cause strained relations, but it is not likely to inspire major upsets. Under this influence a situation that initially seems to threaten your integrity or ego is apt to dissipate quickly in the atmosphere of highly stimulating interactions that occur. Interactions that, for the most part, are likely to result in a tacit willingness to agree to disagree. Avoid exaggerating your own importance in social settings. Let others approach you. If they flatter and compliment you or offer a position of leadership, keep your responses modest. If, on the other hand, they offer insult or object to your presence or status, your most effective strategy is not to respond in kind.

Transit SUN trine natal Uranus
May 15 through May 17, Exact on May 16
Trying a different or unique approach to things works to your advantage, in fact, might succeed better than you ever dreamed possible. However, being different just to be different is not likely to work at all. Your plan or idea has to have a solid foundation. Participation in group efforts, organizational or club meetings, fund-raising, and political activities is favored at this time. Under this influence you are also encouraged to socialize with friends and spend time with children and their activities.

Transit MERCURY square natal Pluto
May 18 through May 20, Exact on May 19
Under this influence you may take some things too seriously. Don't try to read between the lines when there is really nothing to find. Don't waste time looking for hidden motives in what others are doing when their actions may be perfectly innocent. You may tend to become too intense or place too much importance on what in reality may be a relatively innocuous idea or piece of information. The reverse may also be true when others take your ideas or actions far more seriously than you had intended. Valuable time can be lost or you can jeopardize a position of personal power or control you enjoy if you manipulate a situation or the information and ideas you get from others to your own advantage. This is also true if you allow others to behave in such a manner. In spite of frustrating obstacles that can turn up during this period, much progress can be gained if you maintain a patient, reasonable attitude.

Transit VENUS opposed natal Moon
May 17 through May 20, Exact on May 19
People may decide to drop in on you just when your house is in a terrible mess. You are invited to a party or run into someone you really want to impress just when you look the least attractive. This could possibly be one of the worst times to host a dinner party, or perhaps to attend one. Everyone seems to be on a different wavelength and time schedule, and yours doesn't match any of them. Promoting peace and harmony in your domestic environment may be a fruitless gesture. This is an unfavorable period for success in artistic activities and attempts to enhance your physical appearance or beautify your home. Under this influence the pursuit of pleasure, romance, and amiable companions is likely to end with little or nothing to show for your efforts. Self-discipline and maturity are not likely to be strong -- overindulgence, discouragement, self-pity, and oversentimentality being the elements more apt to thrive in your current emotional environment. If you manage to achieve emotional satisfaction in some measure during this short period, you may count yourself as having beaten the odds.

Transit VENUS square natal Venus
May 19 through May 22, Exact on May 20
Things come off pretty well during this period, though the timing may not be exquisite or the setting one you might have preferred. Describing this influence is a bit like giving advice to a woman who wishes her lover would give her a round diamond but he happens to give her one that is square. Don't apologize for or regret the things that are missing; enjoy what is. If you turn up at the wrong party by mistake it may be more fun than the one you were supposed to attend. This line of thinking should be applied to almost any situation you encounter at this time.

Transit MERCURY conjoined natal Mercury
May 21 through May 23, Exact on May 22
Under this influence you may find just the piece of information you are looking for. You may also come across ideas and methods that are quite similar or parallel to your own. There is apt to be a constant stream of communication coming at you from all directions. You should not have to go very far to seek information you need at this time because everything is likely to be found in your own neighborhood. Plans, designs, mechanical projects, as well as the purchase or repair of mechanical equipment, from cars to typewriters, can be the primary focus of your current plans and activities.

Transit PLUTO sextile natal Moon
May 1 through Jun 29, Exact on May 22
The influence surrounding you during this period is not strong or dynamic enough to cause much change unless it is supplemented by the occurrence of other factors and circumstances that encourage its energy and particular focus. The energy of the influence is favorable, however, and is represented by an opportunity to gain power or control, to revitalize or renovate something that has been lost, or to make a new start. Knowing there is a certain amount of favorable energy available during this period, it is then up to you to be on the lookout for possibilities that may come along, and to take advantage of them when they do. You can also use the people and circumstances you encounter to create your own opportunities. All that has just been described relates during this period to your emotional life and to situations that may eventually lead to the attainment of desires or emotional satisfaction on some level. Opportunities now should eventually lead to more satisfactory family relationships, a chance to change your domestic environment, to improve a family business, and to sell or restore homes or domestic items. You may be given opportunity to get a better understanding of your childhood conditioning and relationships with your mother, other important female figures, and children, and to improve your diet and health.

Transit SUN square natal Jupiter
May 22 through May 24, Exact on May 23
Under this influence you may be tempted to exaggerate your social status, professional position, intellectual accomplishments, or monetary assets. Restlessness or discontent may cause you to behave this way, or others whom you wish to impress may unwittingly serve as the catalysts that inspire your overstatements. Whatever the reason or circumstance, if your desire to identify with some exalted position cannot be resisted, at least make an effort to minimize the damage. Use the energy of your desire to work harder; efforts that ultimately may turn what was once a false boast into reality. Be prepared to demonstrate your knowledge or skills to those in charge. The chances of winning a contest or cashing in on speculative ventures at this time are slim. If you do emerge a winner, do not push your luck. Take the money or victory and quit while you are ahead.

Transit MERCURY sextile natal Saturn
May 22 through May 24, Exact on May 23
What you read or hear during this period can help you become more organized and better prepared to accomplish important, long range goals. Information and activities may also fit neatly into whatever organization or plans you have already laid out. Under this influence circumstances may present other opportunities that will lead to easing current restrictions, be useful to you later in life, or result in recognition of your authority and experience.

Transit MERCURY square natal Uranus
May 23 through May 25, Exact on May 24
Since your ideas about what's different or unique may be at odds with other people's notions, a certain amount of discussion and clarification becomes necessary. During this period you may find yourself a little out of synch with those who are trying to communicate with you, either because you are not in your usual location or following your normal schedule, or because they aren't. Under this influence you either understand or approach most things in a nonpersonal, societal way and thus misinterpret what others want you to understand on a personal level, or, others take what you say in a personal way when your only intention was to discuss the broader societal implications of some issue.

Transit URANUS square natal Neptune
May 1 through Jun 30
Current circumstances and movements will upset ideas and methods with regard to religion or spiritual growth, attitudes and institutions concerned with minority groups and civil rights. On an intellectual and artistic level the current influence disrupts ideas and representations of reality, romanticism, and idealism. The end result is not apt to be a clear elimination of one system replacing another but rather some sort of combination that is workable, at least for the time being. How much of this can be expected to have a direct impact on your personal life will depend on the degree to which you are involved with the areas that are affected.

Transit VENUS sextile natal Mercury
May 29 through May 31, Exact on May 30
If you have an urge to compose something romantic, the current circumstances may offer you inspiration or opportunity to do it. If not a writer of romantic prose or poetry, there is nevertheless, likely to be opportunity at hand to speak, sing, or otherwise communicate your amorous thoughts and ideas. If you always wanted to either teach or receive instructions in such subjects as art, music, interior design, or floral arrangement a chance encounter now may ultimately result in your participation in such activities. Other potentials of this period are situations that lead to business opportunities, especially the business of beauty-- hairdressing and related services, fashion design, and manufacture or sales of perfume or jewelry. Potential opportunities may further your interests or success in writing, illustrating, publishing, or sale of books and magazines; as well as in other areas including diplomacy, public relations, social planning, the law, partnership, and joint ventures.

Transit VENUS conjoined natal Saturn
May 30 through Jun 1, Exact on May 31
It can be difficult to admire beauty for its own sake during this period. It isn't that you lack appreciation for the things or people that catch your eye. It is more likely to be a case of also realizing there are responsibilities and commitments that accompany these attractive visions. Under this influence you are most appreciative of beauty that is traditional, structured, and orderly, or perhaps it's just your appreciation for the intrinsic harmony of tradition, structure and order that is enhanced. If not ordinarily inclined to lead a neat or organized existence, this may be one time when you appreciate the necessity of having some order in your life. Your participation in social events and fun activities is apt to be more enthusiastic if they happen to serve some purpose in addition to the prospect of enjoyment; a combination of business and pleasure. If there is no one new you care to meet and nothing you care to do, you may prefer to either remain alone or in the company of those who do have a purpose in your life.

Transit JUPITER square natal Pluto
May 27 through Jun 5, Exact on Jun 1
The self-control you thought you had over certain things, or the personal influence you wield may not seem to be working these days. In reality, this may not be the case. It may only be a result of trying to cover too wide a base of desires and activities. Shorten your sights and you'll be able to make progress.

Transit SUN trine natal Moon
Jun 3 through Jun 5, Exact on Jun 4
Circumstances promote pride and emotional satisfaction in home, children, and other family members. Female relationships are particularly meaningful, and a woman may provide valuable assistance. Under this influence your emotional level is high, and your intuition right on target. An excellent time to initiate artistic and other creative activities, get started with domestic projects, and enthusiastically take care of any matters that are related to children, women, or a new venture. Disappointments that do occur under this influence are apt to have a way of eventually working out to your advantage.

Transit MARS square natal Uranus
May 31 through Jun 8, Exact on Jun 4
Present circumstances may put you into such a tense or aggravated state as to cause you to do something you would not ordinarily do. Because this influence implies rash as well as unpredictable actions, caution is advised during this period. Keep in mind that not only are your actions unpredictable but also their consequences, that is, whatever you hope to gain by them is not likely to be what results. The performance of machinery and equipment, as well as that of the people who may work for or with you, is also unpredictable at this time. Expect to encounter some snags when you attempt to make changes in work schedules or introduce new methods.

Transit MARS trine natal Saturn
Jun 4 through Jun 11, Exact on Jun 8
You are apt to have more patience during this period. If you require more time to accomplish a certain task, it will be granted. Maturity and experience behind your actions is one of the keys to the successful results they bring. If you fail to apply such wisdom in a given situation, you may nevertheless benefit from the actions of those who do. This is one of the most favorable of influences-- not only for the potential success of your efforts but because they are likely to be meaningful, long-lasting accomplishments. It is an auspicious time to initiate projects that are geared toward bringing benefits at a later time in your life.

Transit VENUS trine natal Jupiter
Jun 8 through Jun 10, Exact on Jun 9
There's no telling what good thing can happen under this fortunate influence. Try your luck at the horse races and other sporting events or with lottery tickets. You could be the winner in a beauty or photography contest or emerge the favorite in a theater audition. Artistic and musical endeavors are successful. This is also a time when you are likely to receive the recognition or success you deserve for your efforts in writing, publishing, advertising, higher education, politics, religion, direct-mail promotions, long distance travel, dealing with those of another race or culture, and foreign languages. You are favored in court decisions and other judgments. There is a potential problem connected with all of this. Unhappy consequences can occur when there is too much of a good thing; overindulgence, wastefulness, exaggeration and physical laziness --any or all of which can prevent you from gaining the true benefits of this fortunate period.

Transit MARS opposed natal Mercury
Jun 7 through Jun 13, Exact on Jun 10
During this period your mental processes are apt to become paralyzed by too much tension in your physical environment. Intellectual efforts such as writing, teaching, and designing are not apt to be successful--that is, if they get anywhere at all. Your plans and ideas are likely to be opposed or dismissed out of hand. Nor is it a favorable time to participate in meetings or discussions since they are apt to be disrupted by angry words, too-hasty exclamations, and an altogether unsatisfactory stream of communications. Under this influence neighbors and/or siblings may turn into temporary opponents. Bad weather is only one potential that makes this an inauspicious time to begin travel of any kind, or even to run a few neighborhood errands. Machinery and equipment refuse to cooperate or break down entirely. There is danger to your hands and fingers as well as the risk of respiratory infections. Move cautiously in all situations. Keep in mind this is a relatively short period--and one that is best spent in concerted efforts to stay out of harm's way.

Transit SUN square natal Pluto
Jun 10 through Jun 12, Exact on Jun 11
Circumstances during this period may demand a show of willpower, stamina, and a willingness on your part to investigate and get to the bottom of things. Thoroughness is a must if you want to succeed. Direct confrontations, deliberate actions, and keen observations are your best strategies. Do not reveal plans or betray a confidence. Under this influence areas of your life where you have gained the most control may be challenged or invaded by others. A self-defeating attitude now can cause you to become your own worst enemy. A debt of honor may be due.

Transit SUN conjoined natal Mercury
Jun 13 through Jun 15, Exact on Jun 14
A day to travel, communicate, and present your ideas and opinions with confidence and enthusiasm. You may also benefit from the ideas and experiences of those in charge so do not hesitate to consult them for information or advice. Be prepared, however, because they may be the ones who ask you for information. Your creative thinking can be enhanced under this influence, and you may be able to devise some very clever solutions. Though there is greater generosity in sharing your knowledge or mechanical skills with others, there can also be increased intellectual competitiveness.

Transit URANUS trine natal Mercury
Jun 14 through Jun 30
It is quite possible that situations surrounding your education, mode of transportation, mechanical skills, or travels will unexpectedly improve during this period. The circumstances and people you encounter will act as either the stimulation or the cause of situations that benefit you. However, it is unlikely that you will have any control or ability to manipulate them in any way. Your job is to react as enthusiastically and expediently as possible to whatever favorable situations come along. Under this influence new, perhaps radically different ideas, methods, machinery, technology, and information are likely to figure in your success. Contacts with siblings, neighbors, and those you deal with routinely may suddenly prove highly stimulating or take on some other unexpected but favorable circumstances.

Transit SUN sextile natal Saturn
Jun 14 through Jun 16, Exact on Jun 15
Today brings two kinds of opportunity. If you have worked and planned for something, you may be given the chance to move things along. No matter what your particular circumstances, take advantage of any situation to put your hard work or expertise to good use. If you are in a business or profession, it can mean new clients or invitations to be a consultant or guest lecturer. Whether or not others seek out your services, it is a good time to advertise your availability. The second type of opportunity during this period involves the opposite situation. If you have not been a meticulous planner and organizer or worked hard in the past, this is the opportune time to begin. It represents a chance to gain wisdom, maturity or experience that will ultimately lead to being more productive and successful. Under this influence you can find more creative ways to accomplish mundane responsibilities.

Transit VENUS sextile natal Mars
Jun 14 through Jun 16, Exact on Jun 15
Current circumstances may offer a chance to turn romantic, artistic or musical desires into physical realities. Just an opportunity mind you, not a sure thing. You must be willing to take advantage of situations and aggressively follow through until success becomes a reality. Others may offer proposals for various types of affirmative action, any of which may turn out to be very successful. No matter what happens under this influence there may be a dynamic role for you to play somewhere along the line. If you grab or create the chance to play such a role, and you play it well, the consequences are likely to be fortunate for everyone concerned. Watch for opportunities that could lead to success in cooperative efforts, diplomatic quests, and legal suits. A good period to also take advantage of any situation that might increase your interest and success in sports, physical fitness, and work projects.

Transit JUPITER conjoined natal Mercury
Jun 11 through Jun 19, Exact on Jun 15
Your range of interests and activities is likely to increase measurably during this period. Greater mental and physical restlessness stirs you to find new ways to communicate, new methods, and new experiences, all of which can broaden your intellectual horizons. Business ventures, travel, sales, advertising, higher education, religion, politics, law, languages, and drama represent at least some of the particular areas that may grab your attention and inspire your participation during this period. Under this influence you may travel more, and travel more luxuriously when you do. A wide variety of other possibilities exists as well. Your neighborhood, for example, can become a place of expansion and development, contacts with siblings and/or neighbors are enhanced, and your interest and status in community affairs increase. You are likely to read, write, and talk more. Some self-imposed restrictions may be necessary so as to avoid such negative potentials as intellectual arrogance, or taking on more than you can handle with the result that you achieve nothing of any lasting value.

Transit SUN square natal Uranus
Jun 15 through Jun 17, Exact on Jun 16
You are unlikely to be able to control the circumstances you encounter during this period. Your normal schedule or the plans you have made may be disrupted by the weather, war, or other forces in your outer environment. Though you may not be able to control the disruptions themselves, they may stimulate you to adopt an unusual or different approach to things on a personal level. They may inspire a spirit of freedom or independence within you. Under this influence your association with friends and organizations is apt to be part of the scenario.

Under this influence circumstances may present other opportunities that will lead to easing current restrictions, be useful to you later in life, or result in recognition of your authority and experience.

Transit VENUS sextile natal Sun
Jun 17 through Jun 19, Exact on Jun 18
Social situations in which you find yourself during this period can be ego-massaging experiences. Even better, they may be opportunities that lead to wider recognition of your personal integrity, special talent, and efforts. This potential is not a sure bet mind you. It represents a chance you are either given outright, or one that provides circumstances in which you can successfully create your own opportunity. Under this influence you may get a chance to be in the driver's seat when it comes to gaining cooperation and support from a partner or other allies. A chance encounter or situation may lead to a position of leadership, enhancement of your social status, or other personal success.

Transit MERCURY conjoined natal Mercury
Jun 17 through Jun 21, Exact on Jun 19

You should not have to go very far to seek information you need at this time because everything is likely to be found in your own neighborhood.

During this period the people and situations you encounter are likely to offer opportunity to make use of experience you have acquired as well as whatever hard work, organization, and planning your past efforts have achieved. If, however, you lack maturity, the willingness to work hard, or experience that will afford you an opportunity to take advantage of current circumstances, it is wise to assume that what you are being given now is a chance to attain these very things.

Transit MARS square natal Pluto
Jun 17 through Jun 24, Exact on Jun 20
Power struggles, jealousy, and revenge may be the guiding forces behind some pretty intense activities during this period. Past actions may cause obstacles that must be overcome before current actions can succeed. Anger, if it is aroused under this influence, can be formidably destructive. Transformed into positive energy, it can result in formidable accomplishments.

Transit VENUS sextile natal Venus
Jun 21 through Jun 22, Exact on Jun 21
Taking advantage of current circumstances you may be able to persuade those around you to be more cooperative and agreeable, or as the case may be, perhaps the people and situations you encounter will be of a such a nature as to put you in this harmonious frame of mind. Whatever happens, everyone is likely to be on the same wave length. Negotiations are smoother, joint ventures make progress. Opportunities that come along may lead to finding or attracting others who may be of similar mind as yourself concerning artistic or musical projects. Under this influence beauty attracts beauty, and you are not likely to be casting "pearls before swine" if you grab a chance to exhibit your looks, talent, and charm. Nor will such attempts on the part of others be lost on you.

Transit JUPITER square natal Uranus
Jun 18 through Jun 27, Exact on Jun 23
Meetings of any kind can be difficult for you to organize or coordinate under this influence. Though a spirit of generosity and togetherness seems to be encouraged by current circumstances, too many people going off in too many different directions makes accomplishing group efforts more difficult to organize in spite of everyone's good intentions. Progress can be made toward attaining common goals or resolving disputes, but most likely only by letting others do their own thing independently and then bringing all the separate efforts together.

Transit SUN sextile natal Jupiter
Jun 23 through Jun 25, Exact on Jun 24
Be ready to expand your intellectual horizons because success during this period involves taking advantage of opportunities to learn as well as to demonstrate your own knowledge or expertise. Under this influence children in your life are also favored with regard to opportunities for their higher education or training. Advertising or direct-mail promotions are special avenues of opportunity. Spiritual guidance and participation in religious activities, cultural pursuits, and political activities are other possible sources of opportunity for you. Be alert to any situation that may enhance your influence or status. Superiors or authority figures may be instrumental in helping you get something published or assist you with long distance travel plans. Opportunities may also lead to ultimate success with regard to court decisions or the job and health of a parent.

Observing others during this short period, especially in social settings, you will get a clear idea of what is meant by body language. The subtleties of human interactions are readily apparent, and you can use them to your own advantage. Under this influence others will be attracted to you if you exhibit a certain attitude of self-containment, not aloofness or snobbishness mind you, but an aura of self-possession and control. One of the potentials of this period is that you may be able to turn the tables on the past. Though it does not guarantee that you will regain control of something that was lost or change a past failure into success, you may now gain something equally valuable to make up for it.

Under this influence you may take some things too seriously. Don't try to read between the lines when there is really nothing to find. Don't waste time looking for hidden motives in what others are doing when their actions may be perfectly innocent. You may tend to become too intense or place too much importance on what in reality may be a relatively innocuous idea or piece of information. The reverse may also be true when others take your ideas or actions far more seriously than you had intended. Valuable time can be lost or you can jeopardize a position of personal power or control you enjoy if you manipulate a situation or the information and ideas you get from others to your own advantage. This is also true if you allow others to behave in such a manner. In spite of frustrating obstacles that can turn up during this period, much progress can be gained if you maintain a patient, reasonable attitude.

More animated and action-oriented under this influence, you may be motivated to initiate new projects or act on things you've been talking or thinking about for some time. The negative potential includes the possibility of unpleasant consequences that result from becoming too hot-headed or impatient. Under this influence care must also be taken to avoid head injuries, cuts, stings, or contracting a fever. You should have enthusiasm for most things, and in turn, the physical vitality and interest you exhibit will attract and inspire others. Much can be accomplished.

Social diseases flourish during this period-- the physical ones that result from unhealthy sexual encounters as well as other kinds including vicious gossip, deliberate deception, and shameless exploitation. Illusion becomes disillusion. Diplomacy is an empty, self-serving gesture. Glamor is not based on real beauty. Religious fervor is not inspired by true spirituality. You can avoid the traps if you realize what they are, but the unfortunate potential of this influence is that you may not be aware of them. There is great danger involving water. Do not go sailing or swimming, especially if you have indulged in alcohol or drugs of any kind. It would also be in your best interests to avoid pool parties, cruises, or vacations by the ocean.
