Gemini (21 May-20 June)

We are still in Gemini season, so you might feel like this week has been all about you, and you would not be wrong! The Sun and Venus are both in your first house of self as Art Basel kicks off. Did your solo project in the Statements sector get featured in a listicle? Try to hold on to that satisfied feeling during 14-16 June while Mars in your second house of income sits opposite a retrograde Saturn in your eighth house of shared resources, when you realise a best-booths feature does not pay the fair fees. As the full moon on 17 June nears, kick back with trusted friends.

Libra (23 September-22 October)

Libra has a habit of being a yes-(wo)man, so you may have agreed to too much at the beginning of the week. By 14 June, Mars is in your tenth house of career opposite Saturn in your fourth house of family; unless you are Iwan and Manuela Wirth who have managed to fuse their personal and professional lives into one arty lifestyle brand, you might feel like you have to choose between your work and your loved ones. Prioritise the latter: the full moon on 17 June, which shines in your third house of communication and community, will help.

Libra artists: Carolee Schneemann, Faith Ringgold and Caravaggio

Aquarius (20 January-18 February)

Venus recently moved into your romance sector with the Sun, currently in fellow air-sign Gemini, and your love life is as hot (and maybe as messy) as Swiss fondue this week. Yet Saturn is retrograding through your 12th house of solitude and the subconscious from 14 to 16 June, asking you to get real about what you need, resetting boundaries with friends and lovers who may have been dipping into your pot too much. The Sagittarian full moon, however, illuminates your 11th house of destiny and desire—now is the time to follow your heart, wherever it leads, even if it is just to cheese.

Aquarius artists: Jeff Koons, Amrita Sher-Gil and Takashi Murakami
