Astrology GIFs for the Week of June 15, 2015

The Gemini New Moon on Tuesday, June 16, touches combative Mars, making it important to avoid being hasty or impulsive. Instead, use your strength of will to break down barriers.

The sun enters Cancer on Sunday, June 21, making tempers changeful and capricious. Voyages could bring you honors. The need for friendship and attachment will draw you toward new relationships and scenes.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)

You feel a great need to belong and to relate to your friends or loved ones. This need makes you very sensitive to the feelings and moods of the people around you. You can be very emotionally giving now, but you can also be very emotionally demanding, especially if you feel inadequate in some way. Be careful that you do not ask for more nurturing and support than you can give — or at least be ready to make up at another time — for what you take now.

Cancer (June 21–July 22)

This is an excellent time for making an impression on others. Dare to express yourself to the people around you; simply be mindful of and sensitive to their opinions as well. This monthlong period will be self-centered in a positive way — you are able to recharge and revitalize yourself.

Leo (July 23–August 22)

If you have something very personal to say, this is a good time to say it. In friendships, you will probably feel more protective and supportive than usual, or you will attract someone who gives you needed emotional support. However, you may also become excessively possessive of a friend and try to restrict his or her freedom. Childish as it may seem, you could be jealous when a friend pays more attention to someone else.

Virgo (August 23–September 22)

During this transit, your most intimate and personal life is on display, and you may find it difficult to hide certain facts about yourself. Obviously, you are best off if you have nothing to hide. Even if you usually have reservations about emotional displays in public, you are likely to indulge in such displays now. For example, you might have a public argument with a loved one or spouse (or a public outburst of positive emotions).

Libra (September 23–October 22)

At this time you may feel a strong urge to get away from the daily routine. You may not be entirely conscious of the reasons behind this drive. It is a mood, a restlessness that is hard to pin down. But there is more than one way to get away: It can be done in the mind as well as in the physical world. You are not really interested in leaving everything behind; you’re just bored with your everyday life.

Scorpio (October 23–November 21)

During this transit your emotional experiences are much more intense than usual, which is reflected in the kinds of people and situations that you are drawn to. For example, you may attract unusually intense or powerful people who have a strong effect upon you. Through your emotional encounters with these people, you experience moods and feelings that are quite different from your “normal” self.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)

Your attention will turn toward your most personal relationships, in which you express yourself much more emotionally than usual. Loved ones and partners are important to you now, for they provide you with a feeling of security and support. But if you are in a negative emotional state, this transit will tend to make you jealous and possessive. Look upon this transit as an opportunity to see parts of yourself that you are not usually conscious of.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19)

You are inclined to put emotions second to the necessities (as you see them) in your life: Emotional repression is a probable consequence of this transit. You may become hypercritical as an expression of your repressed feelings.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18)

At this time is very difficult to conceal your feelings from others, and you should not try. You need to be yourself now and to feel what you really are. If some people do not like this side of you, reconsider your friendship with them. In love relationships, you will experience greater emotional depth than usual, and consequently your experience with a lover will be much more intense.

Pisces (February 19–March 20)

This is a good time to retire by yourself to your own private place: You need a respite from the demands of the outside world, and a relaxing time at home is probably the best way to get it. Under this influence, there is a strong fear of being alone or alienated, but if you adopt a freer attitude toward what you are afraid of losing, you will be less likely to lose it.

Aries (March 21–April 19)

Your usually casual conversations with others have an emotional depth that can make these discussions more important now. You are not satisfied with the superficial face that other people show you, nor are you likely to show them a shallow side of yourself. If you can keep control of your emotions and not lose your objectivity, this can be a time of really meaningful communication.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)

You may have a very strong attachment to material objects and a general attitude of possessiveness about them, which can be a problem. Traditionally, this transit is considered a bad time to spend money: You are not likely to make an intelligent decision about buying something based upon your real needs.
