With the Sun squaring up to Uranus an instinct will tell you that some of what's being said isn't reliable. Without getting into a huge battle, remind one or two people that you expect honesty and transparency in your dealings with them. And perhaps they'd like to reassure you that, if they have told little white lies, it was out of a fear that the truth might be too much for you. Explain that there’s no need to keep things from you, no matter how awkward they may be, and you should all be in a position to move on feeling good about the way you function together.
As the Sun allies itself to Jupiter and Neptune you can’t conceal strengths and talents that others would love to call their own. The fact that you’re doing well in certain areas means that some jealous people will feel they’re being left behind. The obvious thing to do is to give them a wide berth if possible. But if you do need to have face-to-face contact with them, draw yourself up to your full height, puff out your chest and tell any potential mischief-makers that you refuse to be held back by their resentment of the fact that you are doing something with your life. They need to grow up.
The Sun’s clash with Uranus means there are likely to be occasions during which you'll have to at least pretend to be consumed by workaday, professional, financial or career issues. While you shouldn't allow anyone else to dictate to you or push you around, you probably do owe it to somebody to at least acknowledge the fact that there are some practical matters that you'll need to deal with fairly immediately. Career issues or practical problems sometimes require you to shelve certain aspects of your private or romantic life for a short while. Promise yourself that you'll sort things out at the first available opportunity.
On Sunday 21 June the Sun is moving into your sign and we celebrate the Summer Solstice, or midsummer's day. However, there might be a danger that you'll be perceived as being too full of yourself as you feel you’re very much in the spotlight or making headlines. Even so joint financial, work-related or business endeavors are likely to go really well. And you will be made aware of the importance of being effective and efficient without destabilising or undermining the confidence of certain others. So, tell yourself you can make important moves this week without coming across as arrogant or ostentatious.
Your ruler the Sun makes its way into Cancer on Sunday 21 June and you should let your sixth sense inform you of who or what you should be focusing on at the moment - and which are the situations you should put to the back of your mind for a while. As you've also got Venus and Mars joining forces at the highest point of your chart, you should be able to bring some of your logical and finer thinking as well as your zest for life into an arena in which you can impress some very important people. But it will require you to get your priorities right.
If you're not careful you'll find yourself in the firing line as far as some of your colleagues or loved ones are concerned, especially as the Sun's squaring up to Uranus. While these people think everything should remain as is, you'll be trying to tell them that flexibility is a valuable resource. And you’ll become less concerned with the way you're perceived in the outside world outside and more interested in your own hopes and wishes or ways in which you can brighten up the lives of other people. You can achieve a tremendous amount by being open-minded and versatile - but also encouraging others to follow your example.
You must have known for some while that you need to rethink your image or bring yourself to the notice of people in influential positions. And you can show yourself off in a more prominent and impressive light as the Sun reaches the highest point of your chart when it enters Cancer on Sunday 21 June, generating some midsummer magic. You can contribute something of your own that's very valuable and important to a set-up in which you and others could do well. But don't bombard the people involved with so much talk about yourself and how wonderful you are that they start giving you a wide berth.
Focus on a work-related, financial, business or property matter which promises to be very profitable in the end. As the Sun squares up to Uranus you’ll realise you can only bring things to a successful conclusion if you're willing to sacrifice some light-hearted, romantic, escapist elements of your life. Not forever of course. But if you are to make your mark, think of this as a week when you must get down to business and concentrate on one particular deal or project that you've been skirting around for too long. Put everything you've got into it right now and you'll get a tremendous amount more out of it.
Bear in mind that with the Sun moving into Cancer at the weekend it's inevitable that an exciting, appealing joint venture will be up for discussion. But you mustn't get carried away with all the talk about how wonderful it's going to be. There are practicalities to put in place. There's a also a need for you to make absolutely sure that those you're working with are going to stick to the rules and guidelines. This is not a time to take risks, especially if you want to end up in profit and much better off in terms of your image and reputation.
Uranus squaring up to the Sun means it might be hard to come up with all the innovative and highly original ideas expected of you by colleagues, employers or associates. But you mustn't give up or give in. Uranus has a way of inspiring you with originality and inventiveness. And you have plenty of other assets and resources at your fingertips. Just don't let the fact that the Sun's also linking up with Jupiter and Neptune convince you that it's enough to be gifted and talented. It’s not. You've also got to have stamina and a willingness to work hard until you've achieved whatever you want most.
Routine work and responsibilities need to be taken care of. But you mustn't be bullied into putting so much into your on-going commitments that there’s no time or space left for anything else. Yes, with the Sun moving into Cancer on Sunday 21 June you're entering a phase during which you'll need to be seen at your most competent and effective. But let the magic of midsummer inspire you with imaginative ideas on how to meet deadlines and fulfil commitments in a way that brings enjoyment and a sense of achievement. If everything becomes one long, hard slog, you'll be in for a pretty miserable time.
Almost everything in your chart this week is positive, helpful and optimistic. Even the one clash occurring between the Sun and Uranus should be capable of giving you the kick-start you need in order to make corrections and improvements to a set-up that has been allowed to slip and slide. You perhaps haven't realised how much inventiveness and originality you have at your fingertips. This is going to help you find creative ways of getting ordinary, everyday work done quickly and efficiently so that you're left with time to develop some exciting new ideas with which you could soon be carving out a niche for yourself within an important area.
