News from Susan Miller
Just when I thought I could not cry any more than I already had, more tears came. I want to thank you for your kind messages of condolences that you sent me on social media concerning the passing of my beloved former husband, Don H Miller. Don and I had remained close throughout time—I met Don when I was 23 and married him when I was 25. Many of you saw our wedding photograph and other photographs that I posted on Instagram and Twitter @astrologyzone (I use the same name on both platforms). They are on Facebook, too. There are different photos of Don Miller with our daughters, Chrissie and Diana. Most show them when they were little, on their own Instagram accounts @Chrissie Miller and @DianaLMiller (Diana has a middle initial “L”).
Don had formed a strong fatherly bond with both Chrissie and Diana, and they adored their father. We all have been in mourning ever since Don passed away in May .We had a touching memorial service for Don on May 24. We all loved his gentle, kind, and loving ways, his sense of humor, and strong, curious intellect. I still cannot believe he is gone.
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
The eclipses are back—they arrive every six months and come in pairs—so life may have become a rollercoaster lately. Take as much time as you need to assimilate news that is suddenly given to you. You are now in the middle of two eclipses, the first one arrived last month, May 26, as an emotional full moon lunar eclipse. The second eclipse on June 10 in Gemini, 20 degrees, will be a new moon and not nearly as emotional. In fact, it will likely bring news you will like.
The full moon eclipse of May 26 fell in your marriage/committed relationship sector, so a person dearly important to you might have been your focus. If you’re separated or divorced, this area of your chart, so strongly lit, includes your first spouse. In astrology, your first spouse is ruled by the seventh house, and if you re-marry, the second mate would be ruled by the ninth house. Each time a person remarries, the ninth house (two houses away) rules your second marriage partner. If you married three times, that marriage would be ruled by the eleventh house. If you were like Elizabeth Taylor and kept getting married, then it would go to the first house for the fourth spouse, and so on.
For an eclipse to affect you, it would have to be on or within 8 or 10 degrees of a certain sign that touches one of your natal planets, your natal Sun or moon, or your rising sign. You already know if the May 26 lunar eclipse touched you with news.
Keep in mind, eclipses work with time differently than normal new and full moons. You can feel an eclipse on the day (75 percent of people do), one month to the day earlier (10 percent of people do), or one month to the day later (15 percent of people feel it later). That means some people felt news near April 26, May 26, or will feel it June 26—in all cases, plus or minus five days.
Events that happen on eclipses tend to mark landmark moments in our lives, ones we always remember. As said, lunar eclipses are always full moons, so those are almost always emotional.
Now comes a new moon solar eclipse in Gemini, 20 degrees, and it will likely bring happy news. New moons are all about fresh starts, and this new moon will fall in your sign, so the opportunity that comes up is likely to be just your cup of tea. This new moon could address your interests in a very direct way, and likely be linked to communication, travel, or shipping. Gemini is a double-bodied sign, so you are apt to get two opportunities, bring in two new clients, or receive an introduction to someone you will want to know better romantically.
When it comes to your career—and Jupiter is working on finding offers for you—you may be asked to write, speak, edit, translate, create advertising campaigns, direct social media, or spearhead publicity. You might launch an app, design an advertising or publicity campaign, design a website or digital game, or start a series of podcasts. You may be asked to host a TV or radio show. Travel is linked to your sign, so you might find a position as a travel agent, travel writer, pilot, airline attendant, or work for an airline company, say, in marketing or partnerships. Or, if you are so inclined, you may find work on a cruise ship (let’s say as the social director) or with an automotive company because your sign rules transportation. Those are a few ideas of where your luck will emanate, but you may find other areas. If you are self-employed, your client may work in one of the industries I mentioned.
You seem to have the Midas touch for the entire month. Watch June 3, June 10, and especially, the full moon on June 24 as these will be fabulous days for financial matters.
When you have good news to share, by all means, please do! We all need to hear it. I am @astrologyzone on Twitter and Instagram. I am Susan Miller’s Astrology Zone (I’m in a white blouse) on Facebook. If you are to hear news, it will come on or in the week that follows the eclipse, June 10.
They will be three heavenly bodies in Gemini at the time of the eclipse, the Sun, new moon, and Mercury, and all three will orbit in Gemini, within one tiny degree. Saturn will send stabilizing, long-term supportive rays to each of those heavenly bodies. The fact that Mercury, your ruler, is well-positioned to Saturn says the outcome of this eclipse could be very positive, bringing a sense of security and giving you the possibility to build a foundation for a future venture.
Mercury, your ruling planet, has been retrograde since May 29, but you started to feel Mercury’s slowdowns at least a week earlier, if not more. Mercury will be retrograde in Gemini, and although you always feel Mercury’s backward motion, you will feel it more directly than most this time. Mercury will not go direct until June 22. Fortunately, Mercury will not interfere with the glorious full moon, June 24, for as you see, Mercury will have gone direct by then.
You may have had a lot of expenses in May, but by June, those high levels of spending will calm down once Mars leaves Cancer on June 11. Ironically, that is the same date you will start to see money coming to you in abundance, so watch the days and weeks that follow. Saturn rules your eighth house of other people’s money, indicating you may get a check from your insurance company or receive a commission, tax refund, royalty check, valuable gift, or win a prize from a contest you entered.
There’s further evidence you may be moving into a more lucrative period, for Venus is currently in Cancer, moving through your second house of earned income. Lo and behold, if we rewind the tape and backtrack to the beginning of the month to June 3, you may hear wonderful news about money then. In this case, on June 3, the money you receive would be income you earned as a salary or fee.
Let’s keep talking about money because I have additional news for you.
More money will come as a result of the full moon on June 24 in Capricorn, 3 degrees. I love this full moon—it will be one of the most lucrative moments of the year. This full moon will light your financial eighth house and release quite a bit of money within five days of this date. You may get a large investment from a venture capitalist for your start-up, or your banker may approve you for a large business loan, mortgage, or business line of credit. You may win a generous financial settlement or be given equity in the company you have helped build. Your broker may call you with news that the blue-chip stock you invested in many years ago has split, bringing you great wealth, or someone may remember you with an inheritance.
If you are a real estate broker, you may make a whopper of a property sale to a client, with a handsome commission to you, or if you’re a lawyer, you may win an important case and be paid handsomely as a result. I give you these examples to get you thinking. Plan to do something to take advantage of this glorious full moon.
The reason for my optimism about you making a large sum at the full moon of June 24 is that benefic, expansive Jupiter, currently in your solar tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement, will be in direct, tight aspect to this gorgeous full moon. This is one of the best full moons I’ve seen this year—a real peach! I see career advancement for you AND a sum of money, too.
Money that is received from this area of your chart is usually a one-time fee or gained from a business deal or settlement, such as in a divorce. If you are in negotiations, expect the final sum to be quite generous. I cannot see everything in your chart, but this day stands out as one likely to bring a financial bonanza.
The aspect between Jupiter and the full moon will be 60 degrees (a sextile), which indicates opportunity. In this case, it could mean a sterling job offer (or new client) and the chance to make good money. The Sun will receive a heavenly trine at the very same time, June 24, and that loops in the possibility that you may be finishing up a highly successful communications project. You might be launching a new venture, like an app, electronic game, or podcast series, or you could receive the green light for a new column, book, or screenplay you wrote.
There are other possibilities just as exciting. You may get to host a TV or digital radio show or be interviewed by the media. Neptune will be in perfect angle to the Sun at this time, adding to the possibility that your face will be out there on the silver screen, on the Internet, or on television.
You may complete an expensive purchase on or near the full moon, June 24—you may be closing on a house or condo, buying a car, a costly watch, expensive jewelry, or selling something, such as a house, that brings you a big profit.
The Sun in your chart is always the guardian of your third house and covers all agreements, legal papers, contracts, and written and spoken words. This is your area of gain. If you need to sign a contract, do so on June 24, your very best day for a great outcome, with solid profits to come. Do not sign before June 24, and here is the reason why I say that.
Mars’ move into Leo on June 11 will mark a welcome change, and from then on, Mars will give you fun reasons to travel during the balance of June and through July 28. (Beginning July 29, you will begin to be more focused on home and family.)
A Gemini cooped up in lockdown at home is like a beautiful bird contained in a gilded cage. Soon, you will be able to fly free. If you are fully vaccinated, you can do so safely, and when you enter other parts of your country where you might encounter different rules and restrictions, you’ll be covered. Getting your vaccine is not only about keeping yourself safe, but also about keeping your family and community safe.
“Only” 3,130 people died from coronavirus in the US the week of May 22-28, 2021, which is less than half of the 7,648 people who died from coronavirus the same week a year ago (https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#trends_dailytrendscases). But to that news, I cringe. I think of all those suffering families who have lost a loved one at this late stage of the game. Yes, the death rate is coming down, but I feel that’s still a big number, and the virus could spike again in the autumn if we don’t get enough people vaccinated. The New York Times reports that experts feel we will never reach herd immunity due to vaccine hesitancy in portions of the population. Alas, this means we will be stuck with this virus forever, and for those who want them, booster shots every year to combat the many variants that will proliferate for years to come.
The Spanish Flu of 1918-1919 has become a focus to this day, more than 100 years after it reared its ugly head. If you Google “Spanish Flu,” you will read that although the pandemic ended by 1920, the Spanish Flu is, in fact, still with us. It is the H1N1 virus. It has mutated through the years, and we now call it the seasonal flu (https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/1918-pandemic-h1n1.html). The end of the pandemic brought in the celebratory Roaring Twenties, known for its cultural explosion of beautiful creativity in art, architecture, fashion, music, and more. I think something like that will eventually happen to us in 2023.
As an aside, the Spanish Flu reportedly began in Kansas City, Kansas (US), not in Spain, but its actual origin is still unknown.
I worry because taskmaster Saturn will remain in Aquarius, a respiratory air sign, until it moves into Pisces on March 7, 2023. I think that’s when we will be able to exhale, and in the meantime, we will continue to take baby steps toward normalization. Saturn has had a detrimental effect on the coronavirus. Saturn asks us to be realistic, informed, objective, and practical.
I will say one more thing as I leave this subject: The weakest, most sensitive part of Gemini’s body is the lungs. Be sure to protect yourself.
You went through a particularly expensive time during May, so if you feel money has run through your fingers, you may be right. The good news is that the flow of money outward won’t be nearly as extreme after Mars moves out of Cancer on June 11. Furthermore, your career is setting off celebratory fireworks now that lucky Jupiter has temporarily entered your tenth house of fame and honors for the first time in 12 years—Jupiter has rolled up his sleeves and will be working hard to show you new ways you can earn income.
Jupiter first arrived in mid-May and will stay until nearly the end of next month, July 28. Jupiter thought it might be fun for you to get a preview of what is to come in much bigger form in 2022, starting December 29, 2021. For now, do your best to press forward on professional goals.
Mercury, your ruler, will be retrograde this month, a trend that started May 29 and will continue until June 22. Mercury retrograde gets blamed for a host of difficulties, but often too much so. There are ways to work with Mercury retrograde to your advantage. For example, in your career, go back to clients and higher-ups you’ve worked with in the past and search for ways to work with those clients again. They believed in you and supported you once, and one may want to do so again. It’s also a great time to dust off a project that had to be put aside due to lack of time, money, or know-how. Past ideas that didn’t happen for various reasons may have a much better chance of doing so now.
We are now between two eclipses, and these cosmic events are some of the most powerful aspects the universe uses to create change and to ensure that we move forward, and they always come as a full moon lunar eclipse and a new moon solar eclipse. We had the former last month on May 26 in Sagittarius, and now we will have a happier new moon, solar eclipse in Gemini on June 10.
The eclipse of last month on May 26 may have presented you with the need to choose the direction of a close romantic or business relationship. You may have had to decide whether to make the partnership official or part ways. Or a partner may have left, not of your choosing, and if so, I am sorry. If you were rejected professionally by an agent, don’t lose sleep over it—it was his loss. Eclipses can be hard. If on the other hand, you’ve been unhappy and have tried to fix the relationship for some time, the eclipse may require you to go to couples therapy to assess things, and you may finally give up and leave.
If you want the relationship to continue, the fact that Saturn and Uranus are at odds suggests the roles you both assumed in the relationship may need to change, perhaps radically. That May 26 eclipse was a full moon, and full moon eclipses usually mark a highly emotional time, but this time, you seem content and philosophical about your decision. If you became engaged, you are, of course, more than content—you’re deliriously happy. Your seventh house, which rules your spouse or steady personal attachments, and where this eclipse appeared, also rules your business partners, agents, publicists, and other close business collaborators.
Eclipses come in pairs, so the next one due is on June 10 in Gemini, 20 degrees. Saturn will be very helpful to you by sending glittering vibrations to the Sun, new moon solar eclipse, and your ruler Mercury, all in Gemini. That means you will be given two opportunities—Gemini is the sign of twins—and one should have stability and a chance for long-term gain. You will likely be feeling confident and ready to start something new.
You seem to have the Midas touch for the entire month. Watch June 3, June 10, and especially, the full moon on June 24 as these will be fabulous days for financial matters. Let’s focus on June 24, the month’s full moon, one of my favorites of 2021.
The full moon (not an eclipse) on June 24 will arrive in Capricorn, 3 degrees, and could culminate in an agreement that will give you a very large financial sum. This full moon will help you, especially if your talks center on business matters such as commissions, royalties, company benefits, or bonuses, as some examples. With Jupiter, currently in your solar tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement, in perfect angle to the full moon and Sun, you will be showered with golden rays—don’t be afraid to ask for what you want.
Mars’ move into Leo on June 11 portends fun road trips ahead for you. You love to travel, and you will find great options between June 11 and July 29. With Mercury retrograde, you may want to revisit a spot you used to go to as a child. You loved that area once, and chances are, you will again enjoy it. Plan one or more getaways for then, and plan to be back home in August.
