A Note from Susan Miller
I feel we all live in our heads so much of the time that when we are faced with a circumstance that forces us to acknowledge that we really do have a body to care for, it sometimes comes as a bit of shock. I suppose if you are an athlete and reading this, you are laughing at me. It’s true, as an astrologer and a writer, I spend most of my days thinking.
When I was wheeled to the outside of the operating room on the morning of June 12, wearing the special blue paper surgical gown and shower cap to cover my hair, it occurred to me that some things in life have to be faced straightforwardly, and gone through by ourselves without help. I feel these experiences make us stronger and also more compassionate of others.
Yet, then I thought about how lucky I was – so many of you, dear readers, said you would send a prayer for me when I posted on Twitter and Facebook that I was about to have an operation. You responded so warmly, far beyond my expectations, and it made my heart swell. Thank you so much.
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
Gemini doesn’t often spend a lot of time thinking about money, and this is mainly because you are more interested in discussing new intellectual ideas and concepts. This month is different, however, because you just came through a financial full moon, June 27, and will have a money-oriented solar eclipse in Cancer on July 12. That eclipse will also emphasize money, but this time it will center on the money you earn, and you seem to be ready to find a new lucrative source.
First let’s talk about last month’s full moon, June 27, in Capricorn 8 degrees. That full moon was conjunct Saturn and lit your house of other people’s money. No doubt you were paying bills to those you owed, and expected payments from those who had promised to pay you. Saturn slows down everything it touches, so you may have had to be patient while you waited for money to be wired into your bank account. Saturn was conjunct the moon, so you may have been worried about your tight cash flow, but I see that more money should be coming to you soon now.
The saving grace to your situation of last month was Uranus in perfect angle to that new moon, so money you didn’t expect could have come in, but money you DID expect didn’t. Life can be so complicated. Or, you may have just recently generated new business that came in suddenly and will earn a fee or commission. Or, you may have finally reached a settlement in your divorce, or your -ex paid the late child support payments.
As you enter July, you have another financial eclipse due, and this one will light your own income sector and covers how you earn, spend, invest, save, and pay others. New moons, like this one, are very powerful, but a new moon eclipses, called a solar eclipse, are even more powerful. This is a solar eclipse, indicating a fresh start or new opportunity. This would be the right time to launch a test for a new business idea that you will work on in a more detailed way in weeks ahead.
This July 12 solar eclipse has some stellar aspects associated with it, and I will tell you those in a moment. There will be one difficult one, and that is coming in terms of Pluto opposed to the solar eclipse’s Sun and new moon. This is quite a forceful aspect and indicates someone difficult who only wants his own way and won’t give an inch in a negotiation. This person is bossy and self-absorbed and might be unfair.
Or, it may be that this person is a vendor to you, and if so, be sure you insist on complete transparency, for this person may be padding your bills and acting indignant when you demand to see receipts.
You will have to keep your wits about you in weeks ahead because the topic will center on money. The discussion seems to be about a job that a person either performed for you or money this person feels entitled to receive from you, but you disagree – the demands sound very wrong to you. Alternatively, Pluto in this configuration could be a representative of the government, looking for taxes due, or a missed student loan payment. Pluto might be a creditor, or, in a different way this could work out, you might have problems with identity theft, so check your statements as they come in. A new moon eclipse can indicate that it will take time to sort out a question or opportunity, as new moons often set off trends that can go six months to a year.
