Jonathan Cainer Zodiac Forecasts

June 19th to June 25th 2006

MONDAY June 19
Mars Saturn Conjunction

Mars has now completed its conjunction to Saturn, although you wouldn’t know it from looking at the two planets. They are still as close as peas in a (rather large) pod... and will remain so all week long, visible in the West, just after dark. Astrologers, though, find that most astrological alignments reach the height of their influence in the phase when they are ‘coming together.’ Once they start to separate, albeit slowly, they affect us less. So if you’ve been grappling with something very difficult lately, you may find life a lot less intense soon.

Powerful Week email

Dear Jonathan,
My horoscope said, "Here comes a powerful week". I must ask, does powerful translate into intense, trying, gruelling, financially devastating? Because that’s what kind of week I had. It seems that without fail, whenever you give me a great forecast, things fall apart for me. John

Dear John,
Powerful times are not always easy to live through. Their consequences, though, can be extremely positive and long-lasting. Don’t forget too, that easy, happy, challenge-free times don’t always have wonderful outcomes.

Midsummer Solstice

Solstice Greetings! By the time you read this I should be asleep, having stayed up all night to greet the dawn. This is a great tradition amongst astrologers, though I must admit that where once I would have carried on till the next evening, I am reaching the time of life where it's easy to stay awake through the shortest night but difficult to get through the longest day without a little nap! I normally find that the first light of the Sun on Midsummer day brings a prophetic revelation. If I see anything, I'll let you know tomorrow.

Solstice comment

Thick clouds covered the sky as I watched the sun rise yesterday. Instead of the first dazzling rays of dawn, a pink and orange glow gradually filled the horizon. I was standing in a ‘Wood Henge’; a circle of giant tree trunks, specially positioned to align with the solstice dawn. About 1000 people were drumming, singing and playing Tibetan singing bowls. As the Sun made its first clear appearance, a chorus of bagpipes began to play. And I saw a difficult year for the global economy... but by no means the time of great disaster that some now fear.

FRIDAY June 23
Violent World email

Dear Jonathan,
The more I read the news, the more disillusioned I get. It seems people are more violent towards each other than at any other time in history. Technology and progress have brought much more hate and fear than love and happiness.

Dear Steve,
If that's the impression you have, it’s only because technology has brought us the ability to know about matters which used to be hidden from us. The world is actually rapidly getting better, but ironically as it improves, we’re finding out how bad it has been... and how much better it still needs to get.

No Thought for the Day

SUNDAY June 25
Dark of the Moon

Your Week Ahead:

This weekend, once more, we are in the “dark of the Moon”. For the next couple of days, distant stars will be more visible as too, according to traditional belief, will distant spirits. This is supposed to be a time when the “veil between the realms” grows thin, and it becomes possible to communicate with the beings beyond; with our ancestors... or even our future selves! On Tuesday, at twilight, you should see the Moon reappear - thin but clear on the North West horizon. With luck, you may also pick out three planets around it: Mercury fast sinking from view, Saturn to the Moon's left, and fainter Mars to the upper left of Saturn.
