Planetary alignments increase the odds you’ll need to repair a vehicle or appliance either at midmonth or around the 30th. Be cautious here if a friend recommends someone, because the resulting work could be sub-par. Before going ahead, consider whether the wisest choice is replacement or repair; it may cost you less in the long run. Also try to avoid the same time frame if you plan to travel. Circle June 4 on your calendar. That’s the date Jupiter arrives in your sign to begin a year-long trend of optimism and luck. More often than not you’ll have good fortune in your endeavors as long as you remember this caveat: Jupiter can promise far more than it delivers. So focus on making your own luck by choosing the best opportunities instead of giving in to your desire to do it all. Workplace relationships will be challenging at times, mostly later in the month. Before then, however, you’ll be in sync with just about everyone. Plan a social outing around the 8th, when you’ll be in the mood to see people and celebrate friendship. This is one of your favorite months of the year because it’s all about money. That’s the influence of several planets and the June 1 Good Moon in Gemini, and the June 15 Good Moon in Sagittarius, your financial sectors. These lunations are even stronger this year because they’re both eclipses, and thus hold greater promise for increased income, favorable credit terms, and debt reduction, if necessary. You could see immediate results within the first two weeks of June, but take precautions to safeguard valuables around the 10th, when purchases also are likely to be disappointing.
