The lunar eclipse in June presents a challenge. Travel across town or across the world, but get inspired. Meet someone on their turf and take on a broader perspective. The Universe is handing out subsidies ($$$) only to those who are inventive and adaptable. Visionaries are in. Bystanders (gawkers) are out.Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Or else, a behind-the-scenes relationship has its reasons. For the executive, key money-saving relationships are identified. Stop throwing money at old-school protocol.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Get a passport and start thinking large. Get an expert’s opinion to insure delivery of perks or rewards earned. Stay social as relationships heat up in late summer. In the meantime, get the office under control. New organizational systems must be implemented. If you are unhappy or under performing at work, go on the offensive; step-up or step aside.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Enjoy! You are gaining access, guidance or support which is enviable. The most unasked question is, “How is she doing it?” Work tensions force a decision by June, while an announcement before October launches a new chapter. Maybe it’s time to take someone up on their generous offer.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Overcome fear by joining a new group or social circle. Groupon promotions are an easy fix. Embrace the inevitability of change within the home. The old home ain’t what it used to be.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

A logjam is breaking loose. Fast changes in reputation bring good news. Proving your skills is job No. 1.
