The Stars This Week: June 25 - July 1, 2012
Wake Up!

If the last few weeks of intense aspects haven't gotten your attention, the jam-packed week ahead surely will! First, on June 25, Jupiter squares spiritual Neptune, when you'll need to walk away from fantasies and become extra-aware of others' agendas. Meanwhile, Saturn turns direct that same day, at which point you'll gain traction on your plans; also on June 25, you'll definitely want your voice to be heard as Mercury enters Leo. Venus turns direct on June 27, a transit that signals the end of your relationship-review period. Finally, the Sun enters into a T-square with the intense Uranus/Pluto square on June 29, when you'll be forced to let go of the past and embrace change.

June 25: Jupiter squares Neptune
There are few planetary pairings as visionary as this one. It's a generous, spiritual, optimistic and highly idealistic combination ... but realistic it's not! Make sure you give your dreams and goals a foundation that allows them to flourish. Otherwise, this aspect drifts toward escapism, which in turn leaves you vulnerable to deception. Keep your feet on the ground with this one and you'll maximize the possibilities!

June 25: Saturn turns direct
Even in the midst of changing times and uncertainties, you can still construct a great plan and move forward with confidence. Hopefully you've been retracing your steps during Saturn's retrograde period and are now ready to move forward with your projects and plans. Now is the time to decide what you want to be responsible for, as well as what you need to let others do. If you're thorough and you take your time, you'll make significant progress. Examine your birth chart to see where Saturn is currently located for more information.

June 25: Mercury enters Leo
Let your inner diva shine as the communication planet enters dramatic Leo! You have a message that needs to be heard, so speak up! Start a blog, tweet inspiring ideas to your followers, update your status -- whatever it takes. If you've been waiting to be heard, now is your time. Just allow room for everybody else to chime in, as they have something to say, too.

June 27: Venus turns direct
The love planet finally ends its retrograde that began in Gemini on May 15. In the time since, you may have been contacted by someone from your past, or perhaps you've renewed your vows, gone to couples' counseling or ended a relationship. Whatever has transpired in the last several weeks, there have been changes in your relationships -- or at least in the way you think about them. Now it's time to assess the changes that have occurred as you put into practice everything you've discovered about yourself and your loved ones during Venus's retrograde period.

June 29: The Sun opposes Pluto and squares Uranus
Wake up! No more hitting the snooze alarm! As the Cancer Sun forms a T-square with the intense Uranus/Pluto square, you're confronted by people and events demanding changes from you. Uranus's influence will shake you out of your ruts to lead you in new and interesting directions; the Sun/Pluto opposition, meanwhile, represents the culmination of forces already set in motion several months ago. With the Sun in homebody Cancer and Pluto in ambitious Capricorn, it's important to assess the balance between your personal/family themes and your worldly/career concerns.
