They also will be felt by the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker and your mother — that last one goes without saying.

Horoscope, Thursday, June 5, 2014

Daring Virgo Moon  This is a particularly graceful Virgo moon, flitting through the cosmic landscape, forming auspicious angles, tossing out flirtatious intentions and agreeing with several planets at the party while daring to defy the host, the Gemini sun. An afternoon squared aspect to the sun may very well bring about the most interesting part […]

Horoscope, Wednesday, June 4, 2014
