|Venus With Mirror~Titian|
Well May was good huh? June is looking far more appealing.
Monday's full Moon and eclipse at 14∘55' of Sagittarius will only be eclipsed as an event by the transit of Venus across the Sun two days later. i.e on . . . Wednesday. Perhaps Sag can lighten things up a little for us? With the north node in Sag it wouldn't hurt any of us to channel a bit of sagacity a bit of frolicking fun. Hmm.
Jupiter moves on into Gemini on the 12th. and lo and behold Saturn goes direct on the 25th. I'm liking June very much.
More into the future the full moon on July 4, can be a time of celebration as well for the astrological cognoscenti as it coincides with the day that MARS FINALLY MOVES OUT OF VIRGO. Tanks be! ffs.
Here are the horoscopes I'm writing from the May-June edition of The Mountains Blueberry, with a particular emphasis on Venus. Next edition July-August. Quite the change in vibe . . .
May is over--it's final. The arrow of time continues . . . .
Venus will famously transit the Sun whilst in Gemini on June 6th. Get up early, don your protective shades, i.e, #14 welding shades and take advantage of this is once in a lifetime opportunity. This rare astronomical transit comes hot on the heels of an eclipse on June 4th 2012.
In what is otherwise a fairly severe looking astrological line-up with Pluto squaring Uranus, Venus in Gemini will be the final arbiter for peace. All you need remember is that truth and good will prevail, and that it’s best not to pick nasty fights you cannot win, or give-in to paranoia and suspicion. Think and repeat: truth and beauty, truth and beauty, truth and beauty

Venus will be zooming across your third house of thinking, gracing your communications and offering you beautiful thoughts in the course of your daily life. Beauty, literature and ideas will stimulate your mind whilst Venus is in Gemini and transiting the Sun.
Venus’ transit of Gemini in your second house of possessions and resources makes for a seriously comfortable bedfellow for luxury loving Taureans. Venus in Gemini and the partial eclipse in Gemini on May 21st, will confer on you a rare and extended opportunity to negotiate with people. Bend Venus largesse towards dealing happily with people rather than indulging yourself with stuff.
Venus’s stays in your own sign and there will be a partial eclipse to accompany the Gemini new Moon (May 21st) with the Sun, Moon and Venus all conjunct in Gemini. This makes Gemini Suns, the golden ones of the moment. You have to cruise with Venus. And she has chosen you-- keen and quicksilver of mind to change minds and charm the birds out of the trees simultaneously. Which is exactly what the world needs right now.
Venus will be hanging around in your twelfth house for the next few months while she makes her extended visit of your neighbour Gemini. Venus in the twelfth house suits the Cancerian sensibilities and it’s a fine time to express your essential self and feel this as deeply satisfying. It’s not, (nor is it ever) a good time to go into martyr mode, which this transit can stimulate.
Venus in Gemini translates to Leo’s solar eleventh house—the house ruled by Aquarius your opposite number. Got that? What does that mean? Well, basically, you’re going to love Gemini in your house of friends, social groups and things of a humanitarian nature. She will add grace, largesse and lovingkindnesses to your social interactions for the next two months at least. Lucky Leo.
Venus can do no wrong really whoever, wherever she visits. Venus in your tenth house for an extended stay—with the additional zap of an eclipse/transit/eclipse, will greatly enhance your public image in the eyes of others and quite possibly even yourself. Let yourself feel good about your image, the world is encouraged by confidence. The tenth house is the house of your career and public image at large and Venus will add beauty, grace and cheer to all things connected with your career and public persona.
Venus for Librans will be in your ninth house of higher learning and expanding horizons, so, if you can swing it, now is a fine time for a holiday. Anything that takes you and your mind towards distant horizons and lofty perspectives is blessed with Venus here in this part of your chart. At the least for the next two months you should expose yourself to as much art, beauty and other stuff of a mind-expanding nature. And if you can, go away!
Venus in Gemini for Scorpios for an extended stay brings all sorts of interesting developments and revelations about the sorts of things that really fascinate you. Such as? Well, like death and resurrection. Like sex as a means for spiritual transformation. Like money just arriving in the mail, unbidden. You’re gonna love it.
Venus in Gemini is in your seventh house of marriage and partnerships where you can be assured she will do all she can to smooth the way in communications with all your close personal relationships. You will have extraordinary powers of love-sympatico with partners and even your business partners will be singing from the same page. Venus confers beauty, grace and wisdom, perfect when dealing with the nearly and dearly beloveds.
Dear Capricorn, you lot do have rather a lot going on astrologically at present. Venus in your sixth house of daily regimens, i.e, work, health and hygiene ‘chores’, will make the day to day of life very much easier to deal with. This will make dealing with the big issues so much easier. It’s the little things that count and don’t eat too much cake.
Venus in your fifth house of adventure, romance and children confers her graces into this area of your chart, where you can get out and about with the kids or on adventures or sing, paint, drum or write up a storm and have a fine old time. Aquarians have been walking in the shadows for way too long. Go and have some fun and create.
Venus in your fourth house brings your domestic arena and the very foundations of your being into the limelight or perhaps up for careful scrutiny. You can be assured that transforming these arenas, both the physical and the metaphysical, even if through a counsellor will make you feel very warm and fuzzy indeed. Go on decorate, naval gaze, enjoy quiet hours at home with maybe even a little misty-eyed reminiscing.
