For the Week of Jun 23rd, 2014 — You might have more than one love interest shaping up — an event that is sure to be interesting! If single, it’ll be a good idea to schedule dates with these two prospective suitors on different evenings so you can give getting to know each person a fair shake. If you’re in a relationship, it’s possible you’ll meet someone who intellectually fascinates you, which may pose some trouble. Don’t overthink an innocent attraction, but if you find yourself starting to think more about this stranger than your lover, there might be a problem.
If you’re not feeling a mental connection with your partner this week it’ll be impossible to feel a love connection. That’s because Venus will slide into chatty, clever Gemini on Monday and will remain here until July 18. During this time romance becomes far more intellectual than physical. Additionally, you’ll crave variety and stimulation, so if your relationship has reached that stage where it feels like your favorite pair of worn-in jeans, you may have some work ahead. Mars will oppose Uranus on Wednesday, providing even more atmosphere for change, but the New Moon in Cancer on Friday reminds you that without an emotional link you have nothing at all.
The Three of Swords card reversed suggests that you can overcome this hurt or loss once you get the hint about taking things too personally or too much to heart. The worst may have already passed, but now it is up to you. You can either see things clearly and let go or choose to let the pain consume you. However, you are not alone. There are others who have had similar experiences and are learning to trust or love again. Lean on these people for guidance on confronting and overcoming heartbreak. Learn how to turn hurt into self-empowerment and action by pledging ‘never again’ to intimidation, jealousy, ignorance or blind trust — and then move on. Lay low and objectively let go of the emotional drama. Holding onto it only increases tension and puts you on the defensive.
The World card reversed suggests that you could be in a romantic rut, not taking care of business, unable or unwilling to expand your horizons, or relying too much on passive fantasy. Because of that, your love life, family planning or relationship could have come to a standstill or begun to feel empty. A new perspective or change of scenery may improve your options or make your communication less inhibited. Patience may be needed if you are inexperienced or have let heartbreak, fear or isolation keep you from going all the way or surrendering to love.
The Four of Chalices card reversed suggests that you may be expecting an offer to remain indefinitely, but ignoring the facts of the matter might not bring the results you anticipate, and could lead to regret. Yet reaching out or accepting a compassionate and sincere offer of love, support or commitment could renew hope and passion and bring reconciliation. This could be a second chance to put the brakes on self-pity, come out of a romantic slump and rejoin life. Otherwise unresolved issues or fears may come to a head as dissatisfaction and longing become more difficult to hide. Communicating your feelings and considering how the other person feels could help alter your perspective.
The summer solstice is a time of emphatic celebration, bringing the longest day of sunlight to the Northern Hemisphere as the Sun moves into Cancer. The solstice falls on June 21 this year, and with it comes a moment of renewal as you bring your home and loved ones into sharp focus.
Cancer is an ambitious, artistic sign, but it’s also quite sensitive, and it’s from this that its desire to stay close to home and loved ones stems — you want to be where you know you’ll be safe and cared for! Fortunately, spending a few weeks focusing on family, friends, and a cozy home is never a bad thing! Enjoy these intimate settings now, and if you think someone’s slighted you, try to remember there’s a good chance you may simply be a bit oversensitive right now.
Two days later, on June 23, romantic Venus flutters into the social-butterfly sign of Gemini. The party mood will be light-hearted, frivolous, and flirtatious, with lots of variety and constant change — Gemini will keep you jumping from one conversation to the next!
