Don't let the fact that you don't have any big letters behind your name get you down. Credentials can never compete with experience. You may not be an expert in the technical sense, but that's never stopped coworkers or clients from treating you like one. That said, don't get tweaked out when dealing with someone who did go and collect all those degrees on June 3. The assumption that he's talking down to you couldn't be more off base. You'll want to keep a tight grip on your insecurities because it would be a shame to alienate someone who wants to learn from you.

You're in danger of jumping out of the frying pan and right into the fire on June 3. Yes, circumstances are challenging and you're clearly feeling the heat, but panic is not the answer. You need to keep on doing what you're doing. This advice flies in the face of loved ones and friends who feel like you're being stubborn but the time to be stubborn is when your ruling planet Venus is caught in the cosmic crosscurrents of a mutable grand cross. What you'll come to discover over the next two weeks is that things will work themselves out on their own.

You're going to be pulled in all kinds of directions, which is why it's important for you to remain centered. Centered doesn't mean you have to be clear on what you want or that you even have to know what you're doing because that's probably the last thing you'll be feeling. Centered means being there for yourself and refusing to let circumstances or people throw you off balance. This will be one of those weeks when both bad and good things happen — probably within moments of each other. Think like a tree — bend with the winds of change and you won't be uprooted.

You're focusing too much on how to get out of a situation rather than dealing with it. Saturn opposite the sun at such a sensitive angle of your horoscope is bound to make you feel insecure, unsupported and like you should escape while you can. And given what you've been through recently, you would have vamoosed if you could. The fact that you are stuck where you are is good — not bad. We live in a society where it's easy to walk out on the challenges that make us grow. Summon up your willpower and ingenuity. Challenges aren't obstacles to your happiness; they're stepping-stones.

Jupiter is the planet of good fortune and when it's traveling through a zodiac sign like Virgo you can feel like you're working twice as hard as everyone else and reaping half the benefits. This can be discouraging, which is why you might be tempted to throw in the towel on June 2. But don't. Things aren't coming easily to you right now and you may even feel like your luck has turned, but this won't last forever. You need to keep on doing what you're doing and trust that there's a purpose to all of this. That purpose will be revealed in September.

You feel like you're on a mission with Jupiter traveling through your zodiac sign. Since last August it's been up to you to sound the call, wave the banner and tell people the things they don't want to hear. For you it's all about effecting a positive change, but others might see you as high-handed and self-righteous. This week you need to ask yourself if your message is getting across or if people are looking at you as the messenger they would most like to beat? You've done what you set out to do. Now step back and let everyone absorb what you have to say.
Next: Libra horoscope
You're having a helluva time coordinating everything in your life. It feels like every time you line all your ducks in a row, one or two of them stand up and start waddling off. This feeling that you can't hold things together no matter what you do reaches a crescendo on June 4 when the new moon in Gemini tips the domino that sends all the others tumbling. You'll want to run after them, but don't. Let the pieces fall where they may because after they're done you'll finally see where you stand. And the view won't be half bad from where you're looking.
Next: Scorpio horoscope
Nobody likes negotiating from a position of weakness when they're playing for high financial stakes. And being a Scorpio, your impulse is to come out stinging. You refuse to genuflect to people who don't deserve it and who have come by what they have dishonestly. Nevertheless, you must find a way to appeal to the other party's better nature. Yes, you're dealing with a greedy bastard but calling him that won't get you anywhere. Instead you need to massage that ego, praise his magnanimity and appeal to his sense of fair play. Do this on June 4 and you'll be delighted by the results.
Next: Sagittarius horoscope
Frustration levels are rising and it's more than you can bear. Not only do you feel overlooked and undervalued in your life, but you could grow old waiting for people to deliver on the promises they made. So what are you waiting for? Wouldn't it be better to take the lead? Sagittarians often talk about what they would if they could, but become strangely silent when given the opportunity to take charge. Thankfully the new moon/Jupiter square on June 4 will push you to speak up. Not only will you get the attention you seek, but people will ask what took you so long.

The sun in Gemini is always a harried time of year for you. It's exasperating, nerve-wracking, and it could throw you off balance if you allow it to get the better of you. The solution is to work with what life is throwing at you. Surely distractions and trivial concerns are taking away from the things that really matter, but they still make for good mental exercise. Use these to become more flexible, to juggle competing interests and obligations and to strengthen your focus. Yes, you'll spend less time doing the things that truly matter but you'll also take care of them quickly and efficiently.

It should be clear by now that people don't know what they want. There's talk of walking out on this, pursuing that and maybe even starting afresh somewhere else. But for all of their declarations, threats and ultimatums, you can see they're staying put. Mars is retrograde and no one is going anywhere until after it changes direction and reenters Sagittarius in August — and even then people will scale back their grander pronouncements. Meanwhile let it go in one ear and out the next while you find something relaxed to do. This is your downtime for the year and you should take advantage of it.
Next: Pisces horoscope
You feel under the gun and surprisingly it's making you more resolved and determined to turn things around in your life and to improve. Usually you're the first one looking for the exit when things get heated in the kitchen. You don't like pressure, stress or being bullied around, but you're also beginning to recognize how you've missed out on things by evading and avoiding. Adversity introduces us to ourselves because it shows us that we're tougher, stronger and more resourceful than we know. It's like a talent. You'll never know you've got it unless you take it off the shelf and use it.
