“The winds of grace are always blowing but you have to raise the sail.”

Summer solstice—it is hard to believe we are here already. Solstice brings the longest day and the shortest night. We must make the most of our Vancouver summer—it is short, but very, very sweet.

To find out what the rest of June has in store for you, calculate your key number by adding the day and month of your birth. Continue adding until you arrive at a single digit. For example, if your birthday is October 14, your personal number is determined as follows: 10 + 14 = 24. Then 2 + 4 = 6, and you have the key number (6) that you will keep for life.

Key number 1
The energy of fun and frolic continues to be dominant during the rest of this cycle month. If you are not feeling happy, then fake it ’til you make it. The muscles in your face don’t know if it is a real smile or a facsimile. Under this energy, you can be extremely charming. Using your charm to ask for a raise or to convince a loved one to do something your way is not considered to be manipulation. Creative demons are dancing in your brain—give them an opportunity to express themselves in creative ways, otherwise the black dog of the dark mood will wag its tail and brush all that could be positive away.

Key number 2
In case you have not noticed, and it would be hard to miss, you are in a test cycle month this month. This energy requires that you be exact and complete all your tasks as perfectly as possible. This energy also insists that you tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, because if you don’t, your nose will not only grow like Pinocchio’s but you will be found out, even in little white lies, and exposed. Continue to work hard until the very last day of this month. Provide a shining example of what you can accomplish when your nose is firmly on the grindstone. Continue to be aware of what you feed your physical vehicle.

Key number 3
Continue to search for new thoughts to fill it your inner world. Look for novel ways to respond to usual situations. Remember that when we continue to do what we’ve been doing, we keep getting what we’ve been getting. Shake things up! Try a new way of putting your clothes together. Wear a hat if you never do, and if you do, go head bare—especially if you’re in the habit of wearing baseball caps. Baseball caps hide who you really are. Try saying hello to people you usually regard as invisible. You may be surprised at what they have to say in response to your greeting.

Key number 4
This continues to be a time when home and cosiness, perhaps even balcony or backyard barbecues, hold the greatest charm. Curl up with a good book and a loved one. If no loved one is present in your reality right now, this is the perfect time to go hunting—go online and post a realistic, but flattering, picture. Tidy your environment; it will give you a great deal of satisfaction to come home to a clean and sparkling lair. Continue to be the person who listens. Listen to the stories of others and give advice where necessary. However, remember that there is no one so charming as an attentive listener—especially if the listener is willing to hear without criticism. Good listeners are sexy.
