Work

Many Taurians may be experiencing this in their workplace, especially in the first half of the month as Mercury’s retrograde wreaks havoc. Stand strong to your ideals though, and take the appropriate precautions to avoid as many potential issues as possible.

Health


The Death card signals that this is a good time for spiritual growth or getting rid of bad habits in order to live a healthier lifestyle. This month, it will be good to focus your energy towards your own health as well, as you may be feeling particularly panicked or worried with all the various activities going on in your life. It is alright to feel overstimulated and want for something simpler to give you a break.

3 Gemini - 21 May to 20 Jun XIV Temperance


Mercury’s retrograde is especially harsh on Gemini, being their ruling planet. Its journey will last until the 16th of this month, and it can be a bit of a frustrating time for Geminis, especially at work. Temperance encourages you to try a find a balance with the different dynamics and events happening at work. While you should not engage in workplace gossip, it can be useful if you are at least aware of the different social politics that is at play in your career. Take these into account when you are planning your future moves. On a more technical note, make sure to employ extra caution in documents or in following procedures, as careless mistakes or open loopholes may cause you a headache in future.



Romance


Many Geminis may turn their attention towards their home life this month in order to get away from the battlefield of work. Temperance advises you to take a step back to look at the bigger picture of things. Make a list of what is not in harmony or aligned with your current vision and draw out plans on how to fix it. Sometimes it may involve making tough decisions, which you will have to carefully weigh and consider. However, whatever you may choose to do, it may be best to wait till after the 16th, when Mercury has completed its retrograde. In the meantime, continue to reflect and plan things out for the foreseeable path ahead.


Health


This is an understandably draining month for most Geminis. Mercury’s retrograde does you no favors, and you may feel yourself scraping the bottom of the barrel when it comes to energy levels. Your health may be particularly fragile and it is important you pay attention to both your body and your limitations. The Temperance card advises you not to throw yourself too deeply into any one thing, as you need to find a proper work life balance. Take care of yourself this month, especially your mental health. While there are exciting things up ahead, you must ensure that you are fit enough to experience them all.


Finances


Your finances and overall wealth will take a bit of a backseat this month. Busy Geminis can take a breath of relief as they do not have to be so hands on with their money or financial projects this month. Despite the changes and shakeups going on in your work, you can count on a relatively stable income in a relatively predictable market. While you will have your usual share of expenses this month, nothing will be too surprising or a shock to you. Things will start to pick up again in latter months, so be patient in this area while you focus on adjusting the other areas of your life.

Lucky Colour: Golden Yellow


4 Cancer - 21 Jun to 22 Jul 0 The Fool



Mercury’s retrograde introduces the usual share of problems in your career until it ends its journey on the 16th of this month. You may have to watch out for audits or other legal procedures that could tie up your work or delay your projects. Miscommunications may also be quite common, so follow the advice of the Fool and be more upfront about your doubts. Don’t be afraid to ask clarifying questions. It is better to double check your work than second guess your choices. At the same time, strive to put your best foot forward and show off your skills and talents. Remember that someone is always watching you, so try your best.





Romance


The Fool card is young and naïve, and often inexperienced when it comes to the different matters in a relationship or persona life. As such, this month is a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to your romances and friendships. Sometimes, you will have to simplify complex issues by prioritizing your own health and happiness. Often times, you will need to do what is right for yourself. There may be some unresolved tension present in the air, but things will get better over time. This is a tricky time, but remember to love yourself and do things that make you happy. You can look forward to future personal growth and stronger relationships.


Health


The Fool blesses you with the energy and motivation to achieve your goals and ambitions this month. You are on one of your peaks of good health, so take advantage of this time to the fullest. At the same time, make sure to exercise and foster good habits to ensure your good health continues in the future. You have little to worry about when it comes to falling ill or becoming under the weather. All the same, don’t be too reckless with your health and overall wellbeing.


Finances


Just like your personal life, this month is a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to your overall financial wellbeing. That doesn’t mean that this isn’t a productive month though. Now is a good time to consider clearing the slate by settling any loans or debts. This includes those that are owed to your friends and family. At the same time, you may be contending with a slight increase in expenses, often related to your household or family. This is to be expected and you will need to budget accordingly in order to tackle everything. Still, by the end of this month, you may feel much freer when it comes to your finances and will have many more opportunities to grow your wealth.

Just keep optimistic, things will turn around for you soon.




Romance


Mercury’s retrograde has a habit of throwing lines of communication into chaos. Especially with the Nine of Swords, Leos may be feeling the brunt of its fever before it ends on the 16th of this month. It may feel like there is wall between you and your loved ones and it can be frustrating to not get your points across. However, sometimes it’s not the firm hammer that breaks through that wall, but words of support and encouragement. While there will always be obstacles to overcome and issues to address, it is good to consider the feelings of others and yourself first and foremost. Take a moment to breathe, before you work on any issues or miscommunications together.


Health


The Nine of Swords is a card that mostly concerns your mental and emotional health. While you may have to take more caution in prioritizing these two areas, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that your physical health is relatively untouched.

There is little you have to worry about physically, but remember to take adequate breaks for your mental health. Be kind to yourself and be kind to others, good karma will come your way soon.


Finances


This month continues to improve upon the last month, though the spotlight isn’t yet on your finances. Things are going about as expected, and you can expect to remain close to where you were in the prior month. There may be some slight increase expenses, but they will be overall positively tied to your family needs or repaying back old financial liabilities. Strive to focus on the other areas of your life.
