Mercury remains ‘out of bounds’ until the 16th, so review our discussion of this last month. Mars, which has been ‘out of bounds’ since April 21, returns to his normal borders on the 12th. Your days of ‘wondering and wandering’ are winding down.

You’re leaving behind two very strong financial months. By the 9th, as Venus leaves your money house, finance becomes less important. Financial goals, the short-term ones at least, have been attained and you can shift your attention elsewhere. Your 3rd house of communication and intellectual interests became strong on May 21, and this month it is even stronger. So the mind is sharp and your communication skills are stronger than usual. Students below college level might want to take advantage of this and attend summer school – learning will be quicker and easier. But even non-students should become students this month. It is a very good time to attend lectures and seminars and to take classes in subjects that interest you. A good time to catch up on your reading as well. Your gift of the gab and intellectual knowledge will help the bottom line. You’re probably spending more on intellectual pursuits, too.

Until the 9th love is still materialistic and down to earth. You are the ‘material girl’ or ‘material boy’ these days. Love and social opportunities still happen as you pursue your financial goals and with people involved in your finances. But after the 9th, the venue for romance shifts. Now it happens in your neighbourhood and perhaps with neighbours. School and educational-type functions – lectures and seminars, the bookstore and the library – become venues for romance. A romantic date might be a lecture or class, rather than a night out on the town. While Venus was in Taurus (May 15 to June 9) wealth was a turn on. Now it is a person’s mind and speech that attract you. You like people who are easy to talk to, people you can share ideas with. In astrology we would say, people with whom there is harmony in the mental bodies.

Health is still good, but after the 21st it needs more attention. As always, make sure to get enough rest. Never allow yourself to get overtired. Low energy is the primal disease. After the 21st half of the planets are in stressful alignment with you, so focus more on health – and especially your emotional health. Diet seems an issue from the 4th to the 27th. Simple dietary changes can produce much wellness, but these things should be checked with a professional. Water-based therapies are powerful during this period. Swim in the ocean or river or lake. Spend more time around water. If this is not practical, take long soaks in the bath. You have a good connection to the healing powers of water from the 4th to the 27th.

Retrograde activity among the planets is heating up this month. We’re not yet at the pinnacle of it for the year (that will happen next month), but we’re close. This is hard for an Aries to take. The fast way, the short cut, might not really be the fastest way. Patience, patience, patience.
