For months you felt like you were working twice as hard as everyone else and for half the results. This is what happens when Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, is in Virgo, the sign of its detriment. The prosperity still comes through but not without its complications and at a reduced rate of return. Thankfully this all changes when Jupiter forms a trine to Pluto on June 26. The harmonious configuration between the planets of prosperity and wealth will give that money tree a vigorous shake. Bills, rather than pennies, will fall from heaven and this will do a lot to refill your empty coffers. Unfortunately, nothing is for free when it comes to Pluto and you may find that your lucky break comes at a steep price. It's best to pay it and move on.
The sun moves into that part of your solar chart that pertains to home and family on June 20. This signals that it's time to bring to an end your travels and your quests (at least for now) and return to the castle to take care of business. Maybe there's a loved one who's feeling neglected, a garden that's become overgrown or a household fixture in desperate need of improvement. You may not like the enforced stay — people born under Aries are naturally restless — but you'll get into it. You may even be willing to beat your sword into a ploughshare by month's end.

This is not a good week for aggressive financial negotiations. Mercury at cosmic crosscurrents with Saturn, Neptune and Jupiter shows that you either have an inflated sense of your own value or you're receiving some pretty bad advice. Everyone feels like they deserve more and there's nothing wrong with wanting more. However, the business world is defined by things like budgets, sustainable income and market value. Placing an arbitrary figure on something you're selling sets you up for a rude awakening with someone who's buying. Do yourself a favor and readdress this when the planets aren't so distorted. Prospects look much better in September.

You'll be delighted to learn that someone actually listened to your advice and that it worked. How will you know? Because this fellow will come look you up and thank you himself on June 26. You'll be bowled over — and maybe even a tad embarrassed — by his gushing praise and gratitude. Nevertheless, it will be one of those moments that makes you love what you do. However, there will be one drawback and that will be that you honestly can't remember what you gave him advice about. It's a real bummer too because it sounds like something you could use yourself right now.

Why is it that everyone else can tell you all about their extramarital affairs, their Machiavellian politicking at work and how they secretly siphoned off monies that didn't exactly belong to them, but when you muse aloud about doing something that smacks of self-interest they recoil in horror and respond with shock and outrage? It's called a double standard. You may not like how this all plays out on June 20 when there's a full moon in Sagittarius, but that's what comes of being everyone's moral compass. It's your job to always take the high road — which is probably a timely message if you think about it.

The Jupiter/Pluto trine on June 26 shows that you are on solid ground, money-wise. It took a while to get your financial house in order but you've succeeded. You have a solid foundation and can proceed with confidence. This is a good time to apply for a loan, refinance or renegotiate the terms to a contract or lease. You look good on paper and it will result in a swift approval. The only worrisome note is that Mars is still retrograde. This could materialize as an unforeseen cost or unexpected penalty, so don't finalize anything until after it reverses direction on June 30.

You were born under the zodiac sign of the reformer. You can spot the soul of a saint buried beneath the skin of a sinner and you will work tirelessly to help that person realize his inner potential. But sometimes in your mission to help you can get so fixated on your idea of what you think is best that you miss out on the fact that this is still a choice that each person must make on his own. It may be disillusioning to discover that you can't turn geese into swans on June 25, but it could also come as a relief.

You're going to have to give to get if you want a business venture to be successful. Otherwise it won't go beyond where it is now. This could mean paying employees more, upping a backer's percentage or volunteering to take a smaller piece of the pie. Libra is the sign of partnerships and partnerships are a two-way street. Yours has gotten a bit too one-sided lately. These sorts of things happen when Mars is traveling backwards through that part of your solar chart that pertains to finances, but you can remedy it easily enough. Be more generous and you'll reap higher dividends in return.

It's hard to feel centered when you feel pulled in four conflicting directions. Your money doesn't support your aspirations, your aspirations look totally divorced from your circumstances, your circumstances genuflect to your obligations and your obligations are such that you can't even see how you could make money doing the things you know you were meant to do. Obviously this isn't a time to make any big decisions. A good way to navigate this predicament is to leave the options right where they are. Sit with the dilemma and let it speak to you. You'll figure out what it's trying to say soon enough.

Is it too early to hope that you're out of the woods yet? Yes. However, developments on June 22 and June 24 point to a rosier picture. The good news is that it looks like you have come up with a sustainable solution for keeping the wolf from the door. In the past, this would have resulted in a hastily arranged loan or begging a favor from a friend, but this time the planets show you securing a job with real promise. You still have a ways to go before you're in the clear, but at least you can see the forest for the trees.

An extraordinary Jupiter/Pluto trine moves you from the bottom of the barrel to the top of the heap on June 26. For months you've slogged in the mire — working your fingers to the bone in hopes that one day your work would be recognized. Well, not only will it be recognized, but you'll receive the bonus, raise or promotion that goes along with it. This will feel tremendously gratifying so let yourself bask in the moment. And don't worry about taking too much time to do this. You're a Capricorn, which means you'll be setting your sights on the next peak to climb soon enough.
Next: Aquarius horoscope
You may say that you don't really care what others think, but in truth you do. Aquarius is an air sign, which means that you are always wetting a finger and pointing it upwards in order to determine the direction that public opinion is blowing. However, public opinion can also be like junk food. It can stimulate the taste buds while delivering information that has little (if any) nutritional value. This is something you will want to watch out for on June 20 and June 22 when Mercury is adversely aspected. If something sounds like it's much ado about nothing, then chances are it is.

June 25 will be an upsetting day. This is when the moon occults Neptune, thereby lifting the veil and affording you a glimpse of what's going on behind the scenes. This could materialize as an email that was sent to you by accident, an overheard snippet of conversation or even a vivid dream that doesn't fade. You're used to dealing with people's confidences and secrets, but it's rare when you're the subject of them. The best thing to do is to divulge what you've learned. It will be awkward, but remember that the onus is on the other person to explain himself, and not on you.
