— Adam Ferguson

If Your Birthday is June 20
(The Day of Ecstatic Appeal) | Birthday Readings: Gemini | Cancer | Others
What’s right for you is unlikely to be right for other people, so you will need to trust your own judgment and your own experience. You stand at an edge you’ve never experienced before, with a rare view of the world. This offers the advantage of seeing unique opportunities. You’re at the cusp of the future. Be bold about entering the unknown.
Written in the Planets
That original or startling idea that seems to come out of nowhere? Negotiate moving it forward just a little, and you may find it takes off on its own somehow. Harness your intuition, remember to be precise, and understand that your opinions might strike others as extreme. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, since today seems to call for a little action. Mercury in Gemini (one degree behind the Sun) is making a sextile to Uranus and Pallas in Aries; an opposition to Pholus in Sagittarius; and a square to Chiron in Pisces. Listen for the ‘cosmic homing signal’ with your inner hearing, but employ some strategy or diplomacy with the outside world to communicate your ideas.
