Julie Simmons’ Sun Sign Predictions – June/July 2019

Aries

MAR. 20 to APR. 19  

Expectations can be so heavy at times, and you are just one precious fragile human like the rest of us. You’re enough! Stay with your values June 1st – 7th, not because you are stubborn but because you want to be real. Spinners of thread made from fool’s gold are everywhere from the 8th – 20th. You can pay a high price for letting yourself be misled. Better to resist the con than to get angry afterward. Adventure calls on the 23rd: Could be travel, might be education. Yours to discover… Take your time.

JULY: There are inner warriors, and then there’s the other kind that inspire fear and panic. July encourages you to aspire toward inner matters; to listen well, watch for signs and portents and be slow to react, even as you are swift in response. Express your most lovable self on the 7th and 8th. Consider the nature of impermanence between the 11th – 29th. Everything you think belongs to you is on loan, for now, not forever. These thoughts allow for greater freedom as you shoulder some great responsibilities at the same time. Powerful messages from the past encourage you to see things in a different light between the 21st and 25th. Be an artist as well as warrior.

Taurus

APR. 20 to MAY 20   

Possibly the only things worth learning are the things we learn through experience. Remember this because in June you’re the one with the hard facts based on where you’ve been. Deliver your truth with love on June 2nd and don’t be shy when it comes to saying what needs to be said between the 6th – 19th. This kind of communication can cut through confusion and some harsh judgments. You are the one with your feet on solid ground and a desire to investigate the best practices. Keep your purse strings tight from the 22nd – 25th. Nothing is as good as it seems. Real value is easier to find from the 27th through the 30th.

JULY: An avalanche of unexpected changes reminds us that our world isn’t as secure as it once was. What’s a Taurus to do? First off, embrace the notion that all things, living or not, change. This is a learning month for you. Between the 7th and 19th, study foundations: Could be your ancestors or possibly the basement of your home. Every disruption calls you to learn something new. A big reveal between the 21st – 24th is about your talent for communication. To take action is irresistible on the 25th. Consequences surprise you by the 29th. Don’t panic. August will clear the way.

Gemini

MAY 21 to JUNE 21  

Be still, if you can, on June 1st and 2nd. There is nothing to be done. Everything changes after the 3rd and you’re the one to keep all the parts moving. The glaring impossibility of pleasing everyone is obvious from the 8th – 12th. Shift your focus from accommodation to excellence from the 13th to the 18th and everyone benefits. There is no avoiding the simple truth that loss is the Great Teacher, because loss and gain, like joy and sorrow, are front and back to each other. When you live from this awareness you are powerful. Try it from the 22nd – 27th. One breath at a time.

JULY: Ask questions on July 7th – 9th but don’t expect answers. Curiosity may kill cats but not Geminis. Your finances can seem big and heavy as capitalism groans under the weight of greed and twisted ambition. Don’t take it personally even as you deal with financial realities from the 20th – 24th. It’s easier than you think, once you get down to it. Playtime is where the conversation and the food are really good on July 25th. Thunderous smashing of cherished attachments you didn’t know you had wake you in the night between the 28th – 30th. Is this a dream? Maybe. A commoner kind of sense prevails in August. Wait for it.

Cancer

JUNE 21 to JULY 21   

We can’t all be extremists. We have such a hard time accepting that who we are is exactly who we should be. June begins slowly. Best to flow and float until around the 10th when energies begin to stir. By the 13th you’re in full flight: busy as a bee, engaging any and all to contribute to your hive. The making of honey is serious business. This productivity is at peak until the 19th when it continues with less intensity. Allow for some down time between the 23rd and 25th. Engage with your social world June 26th – 30th. It takes all kinds of bees to make a hive work.

JULY: Long ago and far away are calling. Maybe you’re an archeologist or its just time to plumb the depths of your own experience. Be respectful of this process, especially when you touch the sore spots of love, loss and time wasted. No such thing. Emotions flare from 7th through 16th, fueled by frustration but carrying seeds of wisdom. Life is for learning if only we are able to see it so. Listen for the song of your truth on the 21st even as it changes immediately upon hearing. Put your heart into your efforts and reward should follow between the 23rd and 27th. It’s hard to get what you think you want from 28th to 30th. It will be easier in August.

Leo

JULY 22 to AUG. 22   

Open your heart to all sorts of folks and their experiences from June 1st – 20th. It’s potentially insightful and entertaining. What can you offer between the 6th and 8th? Protect yourself from overwhelm on the 8th – 16th. No matter the expectations, you only need to do what you can. A shot of creative fire between the 16th and 18th helps remind you of your mission. Nobody knows if they are coming or going between the 24th and 28th. You love such a time when your heart is open to Life.

JULY: The ups and downs of July 1st – 9th could make your head spin if you forget that it’s the heart not the mind that can include it all. Be inspired by both the mundane and mysterious from the 11th – 19th. The effort of creative expression may feel like pushing through rock. A strong dream on the 21st adds to your inspiration. Continue to express yourself from 23rd to 25th. Unexpected disruptions between the 28th and 31st are meant to liberate.

Virgo

AUG. 23 to SEPT. 22  

It’s important to show your best face in June. What face is that? Beautiful, intelligent, fierce? Ponder this until June 3rd. Be as real as you can on the 7th. Watch out for potholes of never-good-enough and blame-shame between the 8th and 13th. Your unique contribution to the group is important from the 14th to 19th. Do not believe those who chip away at your self-confidence. Stay grounded and avoid defensive or inflated behaviour. A tangle of unhappy under-employed women trouble you, from the 22nd through 27th, if you can’t empathize with their plight. Engage from a place of understanding and problems are easily solved between 27th and 30th.

JULY: Anxiety arises from a sense of being controlled by outside forces. No need to wave a white flag on the 7th and 8th. Rather, time to step into ‘radical acceptance’ for the rest of the month. Unwanted disruptions from the 10th – 19th are eased by a wise friend who helps you ride the wave. A surprising source of energy appears between the 23rd and 30th, helping you improve your world. New beginnings come in August, better for having practised the art of ‘radical acceptance’.

Libra

SEPT. 23 to OCT. 22   

June begins with a need to pause. Suspend your powers of evaluation and breathe. As early as the 3rd you’re back in the game, refreshed. Expectations, real and imagined, grow from the 4th. Innovation will transform the stuck places from the 7th – 13th if you listen well to those you work with. You’re the one to handle the responsibilities of business and/or family from the 14th – 20th. Success depends on tuning in to the felt sense beneath the words of others. Summer comes and even play can feel like work if you forget what really matters between the 23rd and 27th. Whole-making is an art.

JULY: There’s lots of energy for making plans but final decisions need time, all of July in fact, to be fully realized. Your responsibilities for home and family are great and worth shouldering from the 13th to 20th. Stop! Look! Listen for a moment of grace on the 21st when feelings guide you to a sense of true purpose. If you’re not sure what you heard or saw, it will be clear sometime between the 23rd and 29th. Be receptive. The time for action comes in August.

Scorpio

OCT. 23 to NOV. 21  

Stop, look and listen for the love you have for one or many on June 1st – 3rd. Count your blessings, even as you accept the human failings of all between the 6th and 10th. Gratitude makes everything easier. Although you are flooded with energy between the 13th and 20th, it comes with the certainty that you must take care of details. Hold on to your resources as best you can from the 22nd – 28th. Impulse spending is most likely the wrong impulse to follow.

JULY: Tension between responsibility and control sets the theme for July. Be mindful from the 13th – 21st that words matter. Listen well and speak for the good of all. Make good effort, using your best intention from the 23rd to 26th. It will benefit you as much as those around you. It seems all bets are off in the relationship department from the 28th to 30th. Don’t bet on that. Everything that was stuck in July moves forward in August.

Sagittarius

NOV. 22 to DEC. 21   

Starting on June 3rd, this is a you-and-me month. Dance with your partner(s) and watch you don’t misstep and twist something between the 8th and 12th. The twist comes if you become self-righteous. See the Great Spirit of Life in everyone, even yourself in the mirror. Beneath the surface of the good things life offers lay the woes of the world. Be like a juggler, keeping the balls in the air and moving constantly around your centre.

JULY: The promise of summer plus adventure calls to you July 1st – 8th. Exciting, yes, but don’t ignore the details. Everything will demand attention, cost money, and possibly change your itinerary from July 9th – 17th. All travellers on this planet are pilgrims. The days of tourism are coming to an end. This should not daunt your enthusiasm, which remains strong and seems to peak between the 22nd and 26th. Honour the unexpected turn of events on the 29th. Evaluate how you have changed on account of your experiences, starting July 31st.

Capricorn

DEC. 22 to JAN. 19  

Take a break in early June to offset the feeling that so much depends on you alone. There is much to be done starting on June 3rd; all of it is easier with a sense of humour regarding a world you cannot control. Get metaphysical: most or all of experience is what our brain/mind tells us rather than the naked truth. Awareness of this is powerful. Confusion is everywhere, except for people like you who stay grounded and do what needs doing from 22nd – 30th.

JULY: Dedicate July to pondering significant relationship(s). Don’t push for decisions; rather, wait and see. Words generate heat and reactivity from the 7th – 10th. It’s more about how they make you feel than their actual meaning. Relationship is both a burden and opportunity from the 10th – 19th. Your significant other has something important to say on the 21st. You may not understand what it means until the 24th but once you do it will help make your decisions. If relationship is the ship you would like to build, trust is the glue that will hold it together.

Aquarius

JAN. 20 to FEB. 18   

Life is like an iceberg: lots of what matters happens where you can’t see it. Deep reflection is in order from June 1st and 2nd. From that grows all manner of creative intention and expression. Organize your studio or workspace between the 6th – 11th. Friends can be quite helpful but don’t compromise your vision. Work on projects most likely to further the causes dear to your heart from 12th – 18th. It’s easy to be overwhelmed. This is the way of the world. We must accept that our best is good enough. Love your friends but don’t let them spend your resources in ways that will cause a hangover between the 20th and 27th.

JULY: They say if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well. Let this be your motto starting July 3rd. If someone you’re close to presents a challenge between the 8th – 11th, be slow to react. Change is in the air. Be alert to the helpers in your world from the 19th – 24th. There are myriad ways to be helped, some creative, others practical. Go to the party and have fun on the 25th. Practice non-reactivity from the 28th–31st. There isn’t much you can do in July that will make any kind of difference in your world until August.

Pisces

FEB. 19 to MAR. 20  

Listen for the true song of your heart June 1st – 3rd. Let it move you to action despite confusion and mixed messages from the 8th – 12th. You know what you feel between the 13th – 20th even if you struggle with plans you didn’t make. Don’t buy into unkind criticism of yourself. It might be that the one true task of any human life is kindness. Turn it on yourself and what seems overwhelming will melt into something different by the 30th.

JULY: Sometimes you feel as though you’re a slave. Other times your genius flashes and you’re at peace with why you were born. Be humble in the face of your gifts as you use them with passion between July 3rd and 8th. All accomplishments are subject to change without notice from the 10th – 13th. Creative fire makes new things out of old ones between the 14th and 21st. From the 21st – 28th, forge ahead in your own way. As the water of feeling meets the fire of expression, express yourself from the 28th – 30th. Knowing what needs adapting will be easier starting on the 31st.
