Love horoscopes: June 9 – June 15
Venus opposite Saturn can be a pretty low point for love, but when it coincides with the full moon on June 12, then this energy will act swiftly and decisively to pull the plug on relationships that are just plain unhealthy. For those of you who have been looking for an escape from a one-night stand that lasted six months too long, then this is your lucky break. You can head toward the nearest exit with no guilt or shame. And if you're one of those suffering from boomerang love — throwing him out only to see him return again — then June 12 will end this interminable cycle. You won't like it at first, but you'll be grateful to get your life back.

ARIES (March 20-April 18)
Mars forms its third and final square to Pluto on June 14. This is when the verdict will be in and you'll learn whether you're going to live with or without him. It's been a long back and forth since December. At times enlightening and at other times exasperating, the experience has been enriching as it truly opened up your mind, heart and soul. If things come together, great. If not? Then know that you gave this your best shot and move on. You've done the trial run for a relationship. Now you're ready for the real thing.
TAURUS (April 19-May 19)
If he hasn't made a commitment by now, then he never will. And this has nothing to do with his busy schedule, his history of heartbreaks, or his crazy childhood. The man is damaged goods and all the love, sex and understanding in the world won't warm his heart. There are certain planetary transits in astrology that signal when enough is enough and Venus opposite Saturn on June 12 is one of them. Will he live to regret his indecision? Yes. Will you? Nope. You'll barely remember what all the fuss was about three months from now.
GEMINI (May 20-June 19)
You assumed you'd be the one to end it, but you may be surprised to see him beat you to the punch on June 12. And it doesn't look like he's breaking up for the reasons you assumed. Your pride doesn't want him to have the last word, but follow your heart instead. You've known for a while that things weren't simpatico and you should be grateful that the cosmos is handing you a “get out of jail free” card. In fact the relief will be so extraordinary that you may be tempted to kiss him.
CANCER (June 20-July 21)
It will feel like insult is being added to injury on June 14 when you learn that your ex is getting married, your BFF is over the moon about the new love of her life and even that frumpy busybody at the office is dating. What can be said? There are times when you're on the market and times when you're not, and you are definitely going through a dry spell. Thankfully this will begin to change after the summer solstice on June 21. And it's a good thing too. You were starting to get crabby.
LEO (July 22-Aug. 21)
It's important for you to get in touch with your heart and to examine what lies at the root of your discontent when Venus forms an opposition to Saturn on June 12. Is the fellow you're with really keeping you from being everything that you are meant to be? Or are you projecting all of your daddy issues on him so that he can't do anything right? You need to be clear on all of this before you decide to leave or stay because once made that decision can't be unmade again.
VIRGO (Aug. 22-Sept. 21)
Neptune turning retrograde on June 9 means that that person you set your sights on romantically will be doing some kind of disappearing act over the next few months. He may be called away for work or called back to take care of unfinished business in his relationship. In any case you will be asked to wait for him. It's a tall order considering how many times you've been kept waiting for no-shows in the past, but rest assured this guy is different — as you'll see for yourself when you're reunited in November.
LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 21)
It's a choice between love and money on June 12 when Venus is opposite Saturn. Actually it looks like you've already made up your mind. It's telling him about it that might prove awkward. You were born under one of the most romantic signs of the zodiac, but you're no fool for love. You can size up a paramour's earning potential with the precision of an IT analyst. You don't like this about yourself, but it's true. Thank heavens you were born with a gift for letting people down gently without them ever catching on.
SCORPIO (Oct. 22-Nov. 20)
You need to let go. Chances are you're right about this person making an enormous mistake. You probably are the best thing that's ever happened to him. However, he's not going to see that as long as you're around. All he hears is someone telling him what he feels and that just won't fly. Part of the curse to being a water sign is that you're extremely prescient about people. One could even say psychic. Unfortunately being prescient doesn't make you timely, and time and circumstances both say that you've reached the end of the line.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20)
Are you being true to yourself or are you getting carried away in the moment? It will be hard to tell on June 10 and 12. The difficulty with being born under a fire sign is that it isn't easy to distinguish the difference between feelings and passion. Feelings are more sensitive and fluid while passion is about the thrill of the moment. Right now it looks like you want to kick over the traces and follow your heart's desire. It's OK to kick as long as you remember that once that gate closes behind you, it's closed for good.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 18)
This is not the best week for love. The Venus/Saturn opposition on June 12 shows that you're not feeling particularly amorous and that secret doubts have taken hold. You'll want to turn to him for reassurance, but even if he gives it, you won't believe him. That's because Saturn can be very critical, suspicious and off-putting when it's traveling through this part of the sky. You're probably better off just keeping your insecurities to yourself and waiting until June 18 for this heavy planetary energy to lift. Don't worry. You'll be back in the mood again.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 19-Feb. 17)
All dalliances must come to an end and June 12 looks like the day. Being an honorable Aquarian, you prefer to meet face-to-face so you can say your goodbyes amicably and with no hard feelings. Unfortunately the heavy presence of Saturn shows that things won't go so swimmingly. Evidently you didn't take into account how emotionally invested he is in you and that for all of your talk of “friends with benefits” he always saw himself as more. It's probably his male ego talking but coddle it anyway. It will get you out the door quicker.
PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19)
Ruling planet Neptune reverses direction on June 9 and so do you. It will be hard to explain why you're suddenly feeling so hesitant about taking things to the next level with him. Are you picking up something fishy about him? Or is this your relationship pattern reestablishing its narrative in your life again? Give yourself a couple of weeks to sort things out. The secret gift of a retrograde is that it gets you to travel back over the ground you just covered. This could reveal a pearl of wisdom you overlooked the first time.
