The Sun goes through all 12 signs in a year. (By comparison, the Moon goes through all 12 signs in a month.) On Monday, the Sun enters Libra where it will stay for the next four weeks encouraging discourse in the courts as well as between countries. There will be a greater emphasis on fashion and clothing. People will want to socialize more, especially in restaurants, hotels and resorts where they can relax in elegant surroundings. Famous Libran Oscar Wilde said, “True friends stab you in the front.” He also said, “I find it harder and harder every day to live up to my blue china.”
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Once a year for four weeks, the Sun is opposite your sign. Symbolically speaking, in your astrological chart, this means the Sun is as far away from your sign as it gets all year and since the Sun represents energy, it means that your energy will be flagging. (Yes, you will need more sleep.) Respect your need for more rest. Meanwhile, this polarized position of the Sun will give you more objectivity and detachment in viewing your closest friendships and partnerships (including spouses). Therefore, in this next month, you have a chance to observe your style of relating and get a better idea of your strengths and weaknesses. You can learn something important about yourself. Meanwhile, Mars will give you energy to work hard. Go, go, go!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Roll up your sleeves because you’re in work mode for the next four weeks. You will work hard, and set high standards for yourself to be efficient and productive. You will start to examine how you should manage your life in general and what duties, obligations and responsibilities this entails. Ironically, you will probably have to make some adjustments because someone else has plans for you. They want you to do something for them and you will have to accommodate this as well as meet the demands of your own schedule. Fear not, you can handle it all. Set aside some time to scrutinize your physical health and make sure you are in touch with your needs.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
For the next four weeks, it’s play city for Gemini! The Sun will be in your fellow Air Sign, which gives you the confidence to express yourself and be exactly who you are. Your drive will be to do what you want. Naturally, you will want to get out and have a good time. You will feel free-spirited and lighter! Vacations, parties, social get-togethers with others plus a chance to express your creative urges will be gratifying. Romance will flourish because your attitude toward relationships will be more lighthearted and playful. You will enjoy fun activities with kids. Grab a chance for a fun getaway because increased chaos, activity and friction at home are likely. Run away! Run away!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
There’s lots going on with home, family and your private life. In the next four weeks, grab every chance to cocoon at home and relax among familiar surroundings. Having said that, many of you will tackle redecorating ideas and do home repairs and DIY projects. (You know which end of the hammer to hold.) Fortunately, Mars will give you the energy to swing into action. However, Mars also makes you identify with your ideas and opinions (as others will find out)! Tread carefully because you might come on too strong. Easy does it. Some of you are more involved with a parent. Do what you can to create the home you truly want.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You will enjoy the next four weeks because the Sun, Mercury and Venus are all well-placed for Leo. The tempo of your life will accelerate with a busier schedule of short trips, increased reading and writing plus appointments and conversations with relatives and neighbours. You’ll have a strong desire to talk to others and tell someone how you feel about something. You will meet new people and be involved in group discussions. This is not the time to settle down and relax. Au contraire – get out there and hustle! Your social life will pick up and activities will be pleasant and agreeable. The month ahead is the perfect time to let someone know how much you love them. (Smoochie boochies!)
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
For the next four weeks, your focus is on earnings, wealth, assets and movable possessions. This is why you will reflect upon your values. (Sidebar: What do you value? What is important to you?) Examine the stuff you own. Does it serve your needs or does it hold you hostage? You might want to show something off to someone because you will be shopping more than usual. Fortunately, you have moneymaking ideas; plus Venus will attract money to you while at the same time encouraging you to buy beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. (Is there no mercy?) Meanwhile, Mars in your sign pumps your energy making you more of a fighter for your own rights. “I’ll be back.” (German accent.)
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
It’s all about you, dear Libra because for the next four weeks, the Sun is in your sign. Mercury and Venus are also in your sign for much of that time soon followed by Mars! This makes you energized, focused and ready for action! This is your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of year. You have a strong need to express yourself, which is good because your first duty is to yourself at this time. Get out and travel. Enjoy expressing your POV to others. You’re a people pleaser, which makes you choose your words; however with Venus in your sign now – you’ll be charming! This is a great month to enjoy a vacation or good times with friends.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
For the next four weeks, you’re getting mixed messages from the universe. Because your birthday is looming ahead, a handful of planets are hiding in your chart ready to spring centre stage when it’s Scorpio time. Until then, they are hiding in the wings, which means that you too, will prefer to work behind the scenes, “in the wings”. But lo! Feisty Mars is not hiding! Oh no, Mars want you to engage with others aggressively! You will love athletics and physical activity with groups. You might be competitive with someone. Note: You will best achieve your goals by working with a group, even though three other planets want you to be low-key. Can you handle this juggling act? Of course!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You’re looking at a popular month ahead! Enjoy the company of friends, groups, clubs and organizations. This is the best time all year to think about your goals and expectations in life. For starters, make sure your goals are your own goals and not someone else’s. Likewise, examine your attitude to groups because you are influenced by friends and associates. They can influence your thinking, which in turn influences your choices – and your choices create your life. This is a good time to socialize extensively with others because these interactions will benefit you. It’s a good time to make friends. In fact, a friend could become a lover.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
There’s lots of action at the top of your chart in the next four weeks. This means others will notice you more than usual; and fortunately, they will admire you (even if you don’t do anything special). You can use this to your advantage and make your pitch or do whatever you can to advance your agenda or go after what you want because bosses, parents, VIPs and teachers will more likely cave to your demands. Timing is everything. (You have to know when to hold and when to fold.) Actually, because you make such a fabulous impression on others in the next few weeks, some of you might begin a romance with someone in a position of authority. Hmmm.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
In the next few weeks, you want to do whatever you can to expand your experience of the world. If you can travel – please do so. If you can’t travel, then explore your world through learning. Sign up for a course, read books, watch films and talk to people from other cultures. Because you’re so curious, this is also an excellent time to study and writing papers. Some of you will begin a new romance with someone who is “different.” Meanwhile, because your appreciation of beauty is heightened, this is an excellent time to see an art exhibit or visit galleries or places where you can admire the creative talents of others.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Life will take on a more intense quality in the next four weeks. The word casual will disappear from your vocabulary. Everything will matter. Everything will be black-and-white. You might have to soften your stance when dealing with partners and close friends because with Mars opposite your sign, you are easily annoyed with others. Fortunately, this is gone by October. The good news is that despite this intense focus, gifts, goodies and favours from others will come your way. In fact, the next few weeks are an excellent time to approach a bank for a loan or mortgage. In addition, intimate relationships will be affectionate and impossibly romantic. (Just the way you like.)
