Reading time: just 3 minutes that may make your week easier.

06-01-2020 to 06-07-2020

This week, you may be challenged to play small when what’s really needed are your leadership skills. On Wednesday, June 3, your ruler, the ebullient Sun, mashes up with diplomatic Venus (retrograde) in your eleventh house of group activities, leaving you unsure whether ‘tis nobler to “take one for the team” or to step up to the plate and hit it out of the park. And it’s not a runaway ego, Leo! People could come banging on your (virtual) door to step in and fill a power void, and you know you’re not at your happiest being just another cog in the collaborative wheel. Think about it like this: If it weren’t YOU but another capable person in your squad being asked to uplevel, would you encourage them to do so or stay in the background? A ship can’t steer itself, Leo. So if YOU happen to be the “best lion for the job,” just think of it as doing your act of service and then, when you do assume the lead role, show your management savvy by playing to everyone’s strengths.

Earlier, on Tuesday night, interpersonal dynamics could get a little shaky as Venus locks into a tense 90-degree square with the other love planet, impulsive Mars, in your emotionally intense eighth house. Whether you’re single, flirting online or in an “isolationship,” you might be happy biding your time (for a change) and actually getting to know someone before taking “the plunge.” While Venus—still retrograde in cerebral Gemini and your platonic center—is in no rush, the passionate red planet in that zone of seduction probably has different ideas! On the other side of the coin, you might be highly intrigued by someone a little mysterious or with whom you felt immediate, and undeniable, chemistry. Note that this is a one-day transit, and today’s “irresistible” feelings could be tomorrow’s “what was THAT all about?!” Coupled Leos might not be able to resist probing their partner's psyche, asking questions you never thought to broach before. Their answers could astonish—and possibly unsettle—you, but try not to react immediately. Especially if you’re poking into the realm of secrets and fantasies, just consider this “food for thought.”
You might be in for even more surprises on Friday, when the year's only full moon in Sagittarius—also a lunar eclipse, the first in a two-year eclipse series on the Gemini-Sagittarius axis—flips the power switch in your fifth house of amour and creativity. Baeless Lions could turn into smitten kittens over someone you just meet but KNOW there’s something there worth exploring. For those in an ambivalent relationship, this activating lunar lift might give you the insight and confidence to initiate the shift you desire. But be ready to grab the wheel—and to set the GPS. This empowering lunation plunks YOU in the driver's seat. Attached? You can experience a romantic renaissance, but it may not come in full-on dramatic Leo fashion. Be grateful for the sweet little gestures that keep the wheels of commitment greased. And since the fifth house rules fertility, this game-changing full moon eclipse could yield baby news over the coming six months.
