The L.A. Taco Horoscope for June 2019
5:39 PM PDT on June 2, 2019
[dropcap size=big]S[/dropcap]un Worshipers, rejoice. June brings health and wealth to the City of Angels. On the 17th, the Strawberry Moon – so named by the Algonquin Tribe – brings summer’s sweetness. Both this Moon (and a very sparkly meteor shower on the 20th ) brighten the
constellation Ophiuchus. In Greek Mythology, this constellation represents the God of
Medicine, and physical stamina is supported throughout June. Hit the gym. Hit the trail. Hit the beach. Summer officially opens with the Solstice on the 21st . How will you spend
the longest day of the year? Living in this town gives you plenty of fun options.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
June fattens the Ram’s wallet, beginning on the 3rd when the New Moon invigorates your Personal Income House. Make a new budget and stick to it. More money news comes on the 17th, when the Strawberry Moon sweetens your House of Joint Income. This Full Moon represents bounty and blessings. The Ophiuchid Meteor Shower also supports your bank account, energizing your Joint Income House on the 20th. Even the Solstice points to Money. When the Sun spends the longest day of the year energizing your House of Personal Income, celebrate the start of summer with a flush bankroll. Remember the first rule of casinos; the house always wins. This house has a name, and it is spelled A-R-I-E-S.
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
Your birthday may have already passed, Bull, but June brings a belated present. When the New Moon lands in your constellation on the 3rd, new projects benefit from your famous work ethic. The Moon is exalted in Taurus - that means activated – and lunar dreams manifest in the earthly realm. Have a partner in crime? When the Strawberry Moon sweetens your Partnership House on the 17th, you will discover an ally. Somebody is willing to work as hard as you, and together you can accomplish that special goal you have in mind. Your Partnership House also hosts the Ophiuchid Meteor Shower, further blessing this alliance. (The meteor shower should be super pretty. Check it out on the 20th.) Taurus hosts the Summer Solstice June 21st. It is the longest day of the year, and all that solar energy restores your bullish strength and stamina. It is going to be a fantastic summer.
Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
Which is it Gemini, naughty or nice? The Twins are the proverbial angel and devil this month, whispering conflicting advice into ears. Make good choices because the New Moon lands in your Karma House on June 3rd. On the 5th, your constellation hosts the Moon-Mars alignment. This planetary combination leads to crazy-head, so remember: don’t believe everything you think. Got a sweetie? The Strawberry Moon lands in your Marriage House on the 17th, sweetening your love life. Nothing beats a summer romance in Los Angeles. The good vibes peak on the 20th, when a Meteor Shower in the same house adds sparkle to your love life. Summer officially opens on the 21st when the Sun refuses to go to bed for the Solstice. Once again, the solar energy is in your Karma House. Sow what you want to reap.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)

I hope you have something important to say, because the world is listening.
Ophiuchus (November 29 – December 17)
You know that friend your parents didn’t like? The fun one? That friend is you, Snake – Bearer, and this month you encourage the whole Zodiac to break curfew and steal the car keys. Rebels win June when lucky Jupiter visits your constellation (June 10th), rewarding all risk takers with their hearts’ desires. And Ophiuchus hosts both the sweet Strawberry Moon (June 17th) and a Meteor Shower (June 20th). These events bring blessings and energy to the cool kids. You were right all along, playing by the rules is for losers.
