Your Milky Way Horoscope June 3-9, 2012
By Milky Way Maid
Hey, in case you still haven’t heard, Venus will make one of her rare crossings of the Sun on June 5-6, 2012. The NASA.gov site will have live video of her trek on http://sunearthday.nasa.gov/2012/transit/webcast.php, the ShadowAndSubstance.com site is overloaded with visitors, but there is a whole website devoted to the topic at TransitofVenus.org Is that amazing or what? Astrologically, the Sun is conjunct Venus at 15 degrees Gemini at 9:09 pm Tuesday. On a personal level, this may merely mean more small talk with loved ones, being polite, dealing with money and/or possessions, being a salesperson.
Neptune goes retrograde on Monday at 5:03 pm, at 3 degrees, 9′ of Pisces. Neptune direct tends to swell things, things like the prices of stocks, hopes, water balloons. I fear that Neptune retrograde will let the air out of some balloons, literally and metaphorically.
This is the same day as the Lunar Eclipse at 14 degrees, 8′ Sag, at 7:03 am Eastern Time. The Moon also opposes Venus, which in turn squares Mars. Relationships begun under a Venus-Mars square can have an intense physical attraction, which unfortunately does not usually last very long. Mars does trine Vesta at 15 degrees Taurus, so lets hope that a sane, practical approach will solve money and relationship problems. ALSO, since this eclipse is followed shortly by the Venus crossing, that should give an extra oomph to breakthroughs or new inventions in communications.
Mercury enters Cancer at 7:16 am Thursday. Mercury in Cancer has strong intuitive ability – you just KNOW something without slogging thru a deductive process. If well-aspected, this Mercury has a great memory especially for facts and figures, dates and names. Their weakness is that their mental processes can be clouded by too much emotion; their strength is their empathetic sensitivity to others and ability to connect on an emotional level. Famous people with Mercury in Cancer include Thomas Mann, Prince Philip, Van Cliburn, Paul Anka and David Rockefeller.

However, it does favor letting off some steam in sports or other physical activity. Friday has a lovely trine to Venus late morning; indulge the children, or visit an art museum.
