Although summer is upon us and most of us would like to be out catching the rays by dashing off to the beach, many signs will be feeling introspective and homebound in the next few weeks. Choose events and activities that stimulate the mind and lift the spirit but be prepared to cozy up with a Kindle or simply wile away the day in PJ's. There is a good opportunity for weekend trips, meeting new people or positive changes in career towards mid-June but for now take it easy. Use this time to plan, reorient or address anything requiring resolution and a sense of peace.
GEMINI – Mental
May 21/22 – June 21
Your birthday month will be spent in deep critical analysis and personal examination. Sounds like loads of fun, right? For most signs this would be a major drag to the start of their new cycle. For the Twins, however, being mental is actually a positive exploration and this could bring about closure in relationships, determination in your professional sphere and concentration. What you want is different from how you go about achieving your desires realistically. Set your mind on being focused, certain and resolute and the ways to reach your goals will soon emerge.
Use your mental prowess on Books & Readings.
CANCER – New Adventures
June 22 – July 22
Throw out the old because it's all about the new this summer for the Crabs. New relationships, connections, job opportunities, an overseas trip or wildly updated wardrobe or DIY project. Embrace this fresh energy by doing some late spring cleaning and surround yourself with people who can introduce you to untapped resources. Run with the wolves without fear and feel free to go off on your own occasionally to recharge and rejuvenate your need for solo time too. This is a fantastic period of optimism, renewed hope and amazing adventure if you're ready.
Have a new foodie adventure with Food & Wine Events.
LEO – Misguided Ego Trips
July 23 – August 22/23
You'll be running up against a lot of ego and self-imposed agendas from others this month. Usually it's the Lion who suffers from misguided ego trips but unfortunately you'll be managing those around you who need a quick swipe of your paw. Be mindful of how you come across. A thoughtless remark could produce an unwarranted response. Practice high diplomacy and the utmost civility. This is the time to apologize quickly, forgive easily and love even the unlovable. The calmer you are the better off you'll be in the long run. Don't overreact or lose your cool.

VIRGO – Live Life
August 23/24 – September 22/23
There's no time like the present to live life to the fullest. No truer sentiment than this can sum up where you are this month. Delve into any project or flight of fancy you have with all out gusto. Attend to the details (which you are wont to do naturally) and draw up blueprints for big plans. You'll enjoy playing host or hostess this summer so start readying your home for guests now. Massage others into your ideas but don't be too forceful or bossy. Let the suggestion germinate by giving it time to sink in after your initial pitch. The soft sell approach will have better results.

LIBRA – Spoiled
September 23/24 – October 22/23
Spoil yourself this month. Take an extra (and much deserved) week of vacation or splurge on a new gadget or just indulge at home with a pint of ice cream and a night of Netflix. Now would be a good time to relax and go with the flow. Make this period of respite as worry and stress-free as possible. They'll be plenty of time for that later. Your improved mood could see you spouting off. You'll enjoy being on your own more than entertaining the company of others. Keep conversations light and easy breezy even if you feel the compulsion to express your opinion.
Spoil yourself with some Shopping.
SCORPIO – Phoning It In
October 23/24 – November 22
You're willing to go out and socialize but your heart isn't really invested in the activity. It will feel as though you're going through the motions this month and phoning in your reactions. Try to embrace new opportunities to meet people with a positive attitude rather than mere obligation. See it as a chance to open your perspective and experiences as you have suffered from too much routine this year and not enough spontaneity. Part of this is due to your expectations. You want and need something to "happen" now but are stuck in a passive mode of simply waiting.
Art will inspire you from phoning it in.
SAGITTARIUS – Listen for Subtext
November 23 – December 21/23
Pay attention to what others are saying to you this month. You may not like what you hear, but it's probably for the best if you accept the message without shooting the messenger. Don't try to change anyone's mind right now or even your own. Stay neutral and listen closely for subtext. Whatever is said should not be taken totally at face value but if you push too hard for clarity, you may find the only response is a complete shutdown. It's better to stay alert and aware, however, acknowledge your intuition and proceed with caution if you sense someone isn't being truthful.
Listen up at Music & Concerts.
CAPRICORN – Load Off
December 22/24 – January 20
You'll be more inclined to just relax and take a load off this month. Consider it early summer lazing around days. The most you'll be able to work up any energy for will be hanging out at a bookish café while sipping iced tea or lounging on outdoor patio couches with a Long Island Iced Tea. Any nocturnal activities should be close to home in case you feel the urge to crash. Long bubble baths, midday catnaps, or just daydreaming while surfing the web will be the best thing you can do right now while your stamina is at low ebb. You'll be moving and shaking soon.
Take a load off at Theater.
AQUARIUS – Believe
January 21 – February 18
What you believe and what others think you should do may be in conflict this month. Appreciate where people closest to you are coming from but don't let it shake your confidence if you lack their support. You may find your beliefs changing regardless to fit more with the norm. Consider bending your principles or adapting your personal philosophy to the current situation. Respect values and differences in opinion no matter how much they diverge from your own. So long as you maintain your integrity and give loved ones the ability to maintain theirs, you should be fine.
Believe in yourself by signing up for Classes & Seminars.
PISCES – In Flux
February 19 – March 20
Your life is in flux this month and you're forced to roll with the changes, PI. This could mean an unexpected move in your career or home. Accept what you cannot change right now and try to find your balance as you shift into this new schedule or environment. Keep the peace with loved ones rather than stir up any unnecessary drama or tension. Focus on practicalities instead of heading off into too many directions. Being grounded through this summer's upheaval will help. Finish whatever you start before picking up another task. You're too scattered to juggle well.
Duck into a Film when you need a break.
ARIES – Be on Call
March 21 – April 20
Make this summer epic by looking at the big picture instead of the niggling details. Discover deeper meaning and life lessons as they are presented to you. Be on call to assist loved ones. Offer your support, guidance, advice, know-how or any experience or useful talent they need. So long as you stay upbeat and optimistic, this should be an excellent period of satisfaction. Viewing the glass as half empty however could frustrate your best intentions and thwart any sense of goodwill. The more congenial and outgoing right now the more filled up you'll feel.
Be on the lookout for fun Festivals.
TAURUS – Phoenix
April 21 – May 20/21
You're flying high and feeling reborn! Don't go the way of Icarus though by finding yourself in a crash and burn from rising too high to the sun. Make the Phoenix your totem this month instead. Learn how to lift yourself up from the ashes and use your strength and previous experiences to inform near future decisions. You'll want to share this unbridled energy with your friends and family but take caution not to overwhelm them with your boundless enthusiasm by pacing it out. Take quality timeouts to get in touch with your emotions, your past and your recent successes.
Rise up and shine with Nightlife.
