A lucky full moon in Sagittarius on Tuesday, June 2, inspires vast optimism. Socializing with friends will be fun and maybe boisterous.

When Venus enters Leo on Friday, June 5, people will be kindhearted. Affections and sympathies are easily moved over the next few weeks. Existing love relationships will be ardent and constant. The experience of “love at first sight” is possible under this transit, along with the intense desire to mix with the world and enjoy the company of others.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)

Your social life will pick up as you socialize with friends and neighbors — your everyday dealings will be pleasant and light; you won't want to discuss serious matters. You may find that there is a lot of love in your day-to-day life and that you do not have to search for true affection. This is a good time to let people know how much you love them. You also want to encounter beauty in your everyday surroundings. Even if this just means a short walk to enjoy the scenery, you are much more sensitive than usual to the beauty around you and will appreciate it tremendously.

Cancer (June 21–July 22)

You will acquire material possessions and money. But when financial opportunities come up, difficulties may arise from your tendency to be extravagant. Your taste may be more lavish than your budget. You are especially susceptible to beautiful clothes, jewelry, and art objects to beautify your home or entertainment to make your life more pleasant and enjoyable. Care in spending is advisable.

Leo (July 23–August 22)

You want to relate to others, and you are willing to make whatever personal compromises are necessary. Because your personality is filled with warmth now, you project a feeling of social agreeableness, making a favorable impression and avoiding controversy. Over the next few days you may be able to make peace among others. Since you do not feel like fighting, you are willing to act as a go-between to help others over their differences. This is a good time to have fun with friends, take a vacation, or otherwise enjoy yourself. (If you can get away at this time, you ought to.) During this period you may attract other people, but not necessarily potential lovers.

Virgo (August 23–September 22)

This transit indicates an unusual degree of selflessness in love. You may be called upon to take care of a loved one who is in need of help, or you may become involved in some charitable activity. In your personal relationships, the need to care for someone else may mean that you will not get immediate gratification other than the pleasure of helping someone you love.

Libra (September 23–October 22)

This is one of the best times of the year for group enterprises and activities with friends. You will feel amiably toward almost everyone, and they will be friendly in return. Have people over for a party or go out for a good time. Any situation in which you deal with many people in a group setting (for example, a business conference or organizational meeting) is favored by this transit. It is important that you feel part of a community now.

Scorpio (October 23–November 21)

The planets favor your business and professional life, attracting persons and circumstances that facilitate your work. People in authority are well inclined toward you, and most relationships in your professional life will run smoothly. It is apparent to everyone that you are primarily interested in working harmoniously with others, and they respond by being agreeable.You could begin a new relationship with someone older or someone who acts as a “guide figure,” who can help you learn more about getting ahead in life.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)

This transit can signify a long and enjoyable pleasure trip. You will derive the most benefit from traveling to a place you have never seen before, where you can encounter something totally new. You'll also be attracted to new people who are strange and different in terms of your past experience. It will be these very differences that attract you to them. Such people may be foreigners, may have traveled to strange places, or may simply be people whom you regard as better educated or more experienced than yourself. This should be an easy and rewarding time in your life.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19)

This transit can stimulate the sexual side of existing relationships and give love a greater intensity. A love relationship that begins over the next few weeks will be intense throughout its duration and will have a greater impact on your life (for better or worse) than other relationships. This transit may attract money to you through your spouse, your business partner, or through a bank or other public financial institution, without any special effort on your part. It's a good time to seek a loan or other financial support.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18)

This is one of the best positions for all relationships: in love, in partnerships, with co-workers, even with enemies. Now you can create a proper balance between yourself and everyone you meet, which makes all your encounters with others go smoothly. In love, you will be able to express affection easily and make your feelings clear. A whole new love may enter your life under this transit.

Pisces (February 19–March 20)

Subordinate your desire for amusement to the needs of the present. In your relationships, it may be time to confront difficulties that you have not handled earlier and discuss disagreements openly. Until each of you accepts your real duties and obligations, the relationship will not go smoothly. This transit is good for all matters relating to work or career: you should enjoy an amiable rapport with superiors and employees. You are willing to work with others to resolve any difficulties, and you may gain financial or other favors, quite unexpectedly, from your employer.

Aries (March 21–April 19)

This transit is the time for fun, entertaining, and amusement. Discipline may be at an all-time low, but everyone needs a break from time to time, so enjoy yourself. Just make sure not to overdo it. Creative activities are favored; try to find the artistic medium most appropriate for you. Love relationships in general are favored during this transit. Now this is especially possible because others enjoy you being exactly yourself. There is no need to pretend to be what you are not.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)

This is a peaceful time, when you enjoy quiet hours at home, either alone or entertaining guests and feeling at ease. You feel amiable and are fond of having congenial people around you. Redecorating is often undertaken under this influence. Make your home elegant, beautiful, and light. You are quite sensitive and in tune with your inner feelings, so that your home-decorating efforts should be satisfactory. Try to avoid doing things lavishly and expensively, and keep practical considerations in mind. Unless you are careful you may also overindulge in food or drink with no regard for your digestion or weight.
