As June begins to slowly dissolve into July by the end of the week, we will witness some significant changes in our collective skies. Most notable of the events will be the retrograde of Neptune which begins on June 23 and lasts for approximately five months. Neptune is an outer planet and is the symbolic representation of our psyche. In that regard, Neptune casts a veil of uncertainty as it waxes and wanes, obscuring our view of reality. While in retrograde motion, Neptune allows us to review our collective subconscious and turn to matters of illusion and delusion. This period of review may present us with an opportunity to regard our reality through a much different set of lenses. Neptune’s influence is difficult to interpret since its impact is so subtle, but while in this period of retrograde motion we might be surprised at what comes to light. Perhaps our view on what we are witnessing becomes much clearer and better defined. Do we “wake” up to events that have populated the headlines? Do we finally see the charade that has been handed to us through a series of endless distractions? Distraction is one of the key attributes of this vague planet. A narrative that has been spun while this planet has moved through the sign that it rules, could now be seen for what it really is. Reality may come into view and we may all be surprised by what emerges. Where is that happening in your life? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The other significant event that occurs this week is the end of the Venus retrograde. The last forty days and forty nights has seen us plagued by the backwards motion of this planet in the sign of Gemini. Venus stations direct on June 25 and topics of finances and relationships should become clearer and more highly focused in a positive manner. The future now becomes more important than the past with regard to those topics. At the same time we see Jupiter and Pluto returning to a conjunct alignment. This conjunction could very well shed light on that which has been hidden and create a major blowback to policies that have been put in place while we weren’t looking. Jupiter represents government, spirituality and Pluto represents change and destruction of old ways. Together these two might begin to influence the public’s perception of what is tolerable and what is not. While we may have been distracted by countless tactics to grab our attention, this current and slow-moving alignment may shed light on those and bring our focus into a position of radical reversal. This may be a time when we wake up as a collective body. Where will you feel it? If you have questions about your own unique destiny contact me at, www.chrisflisher.com, or www.turningofthewheel.com.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You know Mars. The planet of action and ambition is your planet. Currently in the last degrees of Pisces, Mars will soon move into your domain where it will reside in Aries until January. This unusually long transit is due to a lengthy retrograde period. Get ready to get things done. Take aim.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may begin to see some traction once again with regard to your finances. Your ruling planet, Venus, has stationed direct in your money domain. If you can use this opportunity to make bold steps for securing your future you will benefit from the attention you have made towards frugality. Steps you take today will pay off tomorrow.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Venus, now in Gemini, has stationed direct and you may feel the glow that comes with it. While in Gemini, Venus may have tempted you to think of your obligations and how best to use them. Finances, your personal influence and your role all have been reconsidered. You are on the right path.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): You may be experiencing doubts about your future. That is not really all that unusual given how confusing the world is right now. There is nothing wrong with doubt since it forces you to consider what your options are and how to best pivot to something different. Education and travel might provide valuable insights into which direction to take.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): As your time in the Sun approaches you may be deciding how to make the best of a new year. It is important to only do the research and posturing now, rather than making any dramatic moves. There are challenges as to how to spend your time, but those same challenges make the outcome more satisfying once you decide.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may begin to see some positive action with regard to your occupation. Venus, now direct, is moving through that domain of your world. Your primary partner may be motivating you to seek out alternatives and some of that might be appealing. You have to make these decisions by yourself, though, so buckle down.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Questioning how to spend your time may be a useful exercise, but refrain from making any drastic changes until Mercury stations direct. While the temptation might be real, you would be wise to simply explore your options rather than act upon them. Place an emphasis on travel and education as a means to an end.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): Your creativity may be especially vibrant this week, so why not take advantage of the window and explore new avenues? Your significant partner might deliver some unanticipated news that sparks your creativity. With so much activity with fellow water signs, you might be quite engaged. Expect delays and perhaps rescheduling of events as Mercury spins in retrograde.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep an eye on your financial portfolios this week as your ruling planet, Jupiter aligns with powerful Pluto. You might be the beneficiary of good timing or you could miss the window altogether. Something major is shifting with your investments. Seek outside advice and do not act impulsively. Wait for Mercury to go direct before you act.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): More than likely you are wrestling with a lifestyle change that has a particularly difficult set of circumstances surrounding it. The choice is always yours. It is simply a matter of how much effort you are willing to invest in your future. Be aware of conversations with your partner as they might influence your opinion.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may be feeling the weight of transition as it rests on your goals and aspirations this week. One of the best ways to address uncertainty is to be creative. Self expression is a valuable tool for discovering who you really are. This process is most valuable if you place no limits on how you explore, expand, and express.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your ruling planet, Neptune, has just stationed retrograde. What once seemed unclear may now slowly emerge as more than you imagined. Mars will be moving out of Pisces soon, so use what motivation you can muster to dig deeper. Take creative steps, but act with caution and reserve your judgements until Mercury goes direct.
