Weekly Astrology for June 11, 2018 by Chris Flisher
Two inner planets are notable this week as both Mercury and Venus change signs. Fast moving inner planets often help to trigger larger outer planets and frequently provide the spark for events. Mercury will be moving into Cancer on the 12 of June. In this placement, the planet of communication and ideas will enter into the watery realm of Cancer. Topics of home, security, nurturing and maternity are all likely under this influence. With Saturn in Capricorn, Mercury will be standing in direct opposition. We know that Saturn constraints and implores us to rise to the occasion no matter how difficult. Since we are in the midst of a fractious and uncertain time we might come to learn new information. While this combination can deliver a variety of outcomes, we might expect to be distrusting of news that we hear. In addition we might also feel uninspired and depressed as we see major institutions buckle and fall under the weight of a new regime. While together these two planets can work in a constructive manner it is more likely that a general malaise slips into our collective subconscious.

Elsewhere Venus enters into Leo this week where its influence bends more towards grand gestures and creative initiatives. Leo is a big, bold, and highly charismatic sign and it is known for dominating. With Venus here some of that bombast might be tempered with a softer touch which would be welcome. At the same time, Venus will be standing in a harsh angle to Uranus and we could be witness to some rather unexpected outcomes. Uranus expresses innovation and rebellion and while in a hard angle to Venus we might be pleasantly surprised by the interaction of these two. Creative efforts may well be where we see the greatest imprint. On the positive side we could see unusual creative expressions and impulse-driven affairs. On the other hand we might be privy to wildly exaggerated statements that are heightened by emotions and sentiment, moodiness, or nervous excess. Knowing the temperament and potential of these two we have the ability to set the stage by acting in progressive and expansive ways.

ARIES (March 21- April 19)
Expect to engage in conversations regarding your occupation. While this may be an attempt to provide insight you may find that you have more left to do before you can achieve stability. You may be quite passionate about how you move forward but choose carefully since the direction you choose may end up being irreversible.
TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)
You may find yourself in a standoff with a sibling this week over a shared responsibility. One of you may have to bend to appease the other and that could get a bit heated. A tendency towards reversals and aberrant behaviour could find you in a radically different place at the end than where you began.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
You may be involved in a rather sobering conversation regarding your finances this week. While the obstacles you face may be challenging consider how this influence might tempt you to take a new tact with regard to your spending habits. Make your decisions cautiously for the impact may be substantial and extend into the future.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
Responsibility may be on your mind especially when it comes to a division of labor or duties with your significant partner or close friend. You may feel as if you have been shouldering too much of the heavy-lifting so to speak, and you might be tempted to vocalize your thoughts on that inequality.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
A long-running project may be all consuming this week as a deadline approaches. Last minute adjustments and alterations may be necessary before you can successfully declare completion. While the extra effort may be burdensome at this point consider what the situation would look like if you hadn’t contributed the extra effort.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Conversations with business associates might be a little on the heavy side this week. You may be at odds with how to proceed on a collaborative project. With that in mind you may have to put more effort in than you had originally planned or be over-diligent with regard to details and facts surrounding the project.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Your primary homestead may be the source of your attention this week. Reconsiderations regarding your efforts there are likely to be a topic of discussion. Questions such as who’s turn is it? And how do we solve this problem are likely. While other family members might see things differently you may have to make the final decision.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21)
Your curiosity may be piqued this week as documentation, legal drafts and other research materials draw your attention. Fortunately you are well-equipped to stray into this landscape and are eager to get to the bottom of details that may be in the way of a forward path. You might be well-served by doing some in depth research.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Financial matters may be dominating your week. Difficult discussions must be entertained in order to address the situation at hand. Financial institutions, insurance companies and the like are prime areas for your focus. Details may be important so bear that in mind and take good notes. You may be required to provide some background history.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You may be discussing shared responsibilities this week with your significant partner. There may be an imbalance between your individual contributions that needs to be addressed and set right. While that may find you with more duties than you bargained for, you might be wise to see that this is the best way to keep the peace.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
A decision may have to be made this week regarding a transition. You may be moving from one job to another, or, you might be looking at a major project, and so on. With all of that in mind you might be well-served by getting all the details you can before you opt out or in.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Business matters may be an important theme for you this week as collaborative creative projects bring you to a decision point. While you may be challenged by the facts and reality of the situation you may find that the best solution comes through the hard work of negotiation. Hone your powers of concentration and power through.
