This week two major changes are happening: Mars moves into Scorpio to stay for six weeks; and the Sun moves into Sagittarius to stay for four weeks. Meanwhile, news that will please everyone is that on Wednesday the 20th, Mercury retrograde is over! Yay! Please note: The “shadow” of this retrograde lingers until Dec 8th, which means if you’re buying a big-ticket item like a car, truck, bike, cell phone or computer – wait until after that date. Nevertheless, transportation delays and goofy errors will lessen. On the other hand, for maximum spotlight attention, nothing beats a big mistake!
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Pack your bags because in the next four weeks, you want to get outta Dodge. You need a change of scenery and you want adventure! Please do yourself a favour and do anything to expand your experience of this world. If you can’t travel, then explore your own backyard. Or instead, you might be thrilled to sign up for a course or take up a new study that transports you into a whole new reality. Meanwhile, disputes about shared property and inheritances might arise. The underlying note of your entire month includes an amplified sex drive. Woot! In fact, some will begin a romance with someone “different” or from another culture. (Fun way to learn a new language!) Oh yeah.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The next four weeks are complicated. Fiery Mars is opposite your sign, which means you will be annoyed with partners and close friends. Really? (Apparently.) Meanwhile, the Sun will heighten your focus on issues related to shared property, inheritances, insurance issues and anything that you own jointly with others. This combination could mean you will be in conflict with someone close to you. Fortunately, Venus and Jupiter will soften things and attract money, loans, mortgages and inheritances to you. Yes, it’s your turn to get richer! Venus will also guarantee that romance is sweet, passionate and memorable. (The stuff of movies.)
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You will need more sleep in the next four weeks because the Sun is now as far away from your sign as it gets all year (symbolically in your chart) and of course, the Sun represents your energy. Ironically, even though you may have less energy to keep up to your schedule; Mars is now moving into the part of your chart related to your job, which means you will have lots of energy for work! Go figure. In fact, you will want to work so hard in the next six weeks, you will start to dictate and delegate work to others as well. “Move that mountain!” “Build that bridge!” Relations with partners and close friends will be warm and cozy and the silly errors at work will reduce.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
For the next four weeks, you will set your sights high because your ambition is to get better organized in every aspect of your life. You want to do whatever you can so that you feel that you’re living right and making good choices. The more you conquer loose ends in your world, and the more you feel you are in control, then the happier you will be. (Natch!) Coworkers will also be supportive to you, and your health will feel more vigourous! Conflict with kids might be likely for the next few weeks. Nevertheless, you personally want the freedom to express to others about what and who you are. Romance will be passionate and physical!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You are entering a lovely four-week window full of opportunities to party and socialize with others. Yay! Sports events along with playful activities with kids will appeal. Romance will sizzle! New flirtations are likely, mostly because you feel sexy and good about yourself. Creative activities will also appeal because you need to express yourself through some kind of creative work. Meanwhile, your home scene will suddenly be topsy-turvy because of visiting guests, redecorating projects or renovations, or residential moves. There will be great activity where you live! Naturally, if it’s too much insanity, domestic strife will occur. Take the high road whenever possible.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
The next four weeks are about home, family and your private life. You will cocoon in personal surroundings. You might want to be by yourself as well. You might have an important conversation with a parent. In fact, in conversations with others, you will be surprisingly strident and forceful! Your confidence and talking to others in the weeks ahead will help those of you in sales, marketing, teaching, acting and writing. In fact, because you will identify strongly with your ideas and opinions, be careful not to coerce others into agreeing with you. Nevertheless, if you have to defend yourself – you will do so with energy and style!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Heads up because you’re heading into a busy six weeks ahead. The pace of your days will accelerate with appointments and visits plus short trips and increased reading, writing and studying. However, you won’t mind this busy pace, in fact, it will excite you! You will enjoy talking to others. Your everyday surroundings and activities will be more pleasant and agreeable to you. At a deeper level, you will discover there is more love in your everyday life than you knew. In the next month, you might identify with your wealth. If you have money, you feel you’re a good person. If you don’t, you feel discouraged. But it’s obvious that you’re not your bank account or your furniture. (Of course, you are your car.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
In the next four weeks, you will be more attuned to money, cash flow, earnings and finances, which will prompt you to reflect upon your values. In other words, what really matters? As you survey your assets and movable belongings, take note of whether or not you are in charge of what you own. Do you own your stuff or does it own you? This will prompt you to want to have greater control over your life through the things that you own. Ironically, you will buy beautiful things for yourself and loved ones in the next month. Meanwhile, this week fiery Mars moves into your sign, boosting your energy and making you proactive. Expect great activity and a desire to work hard to get ahead.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
This week the Sun will be in your sign for the next four weeks giving you a chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. You will easily attract people to you, more than usual, and you will also attract favourable circumstances to you. We like! (Note: The next few weeks are the perfect time to buy wardrobe goodies for yourself.) This is a wise idea because you want to project a confident image to your world before you start to earn more money next year! However, a hidden activity might take place that makes you feel vaguely irritable. Guard against little, self-defeating facts. This could be because someone is working against your best interests. If you think something fishy is going on – it is!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Two contradictory influences are at play for the next several weeks. One influence encourages you to be low-key and work alone or behind the scenes. You want to keep a low profile at work as well as relax by yourself. By contrast, the other influence will push you to be involved with groups, clubs and organizations. In particular, you might be physically competitive through athletics; however, you will achieve your goals by working cooperatively with others. This is also an excellent time to set goals for the future. Therefore, don’t worry if you feel pulled in two different directions – this is totally appropriate. Just go with what feels right at the moment.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You will love the next 4 to 6 weeks because the Sun is sitting in the part that is “your home” in your chart. This will turn your attention to your friends and also toward groups to which you belong. You will find that friendships and group relationships are suddenly important to you. In addition, this will be the best time for you to work and cooperate with others to achieve your goals. You see that it’s important to establish who you are among your friends and let them know this and also what your values are without violating your integrity. Meanwhile, your ambition will be aroused! You will be gung ho to accomplish something and nothing will stop you. (All the more reason to get “a little help from your friends.”)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You make a fabulous impression on others in the next 4 to 6 weeks! You don’t have to do anything special because people will admire you anyway. Obviously, you can use this to your advantage and ask for what you want. Push your own agenda because doors will open for you. Because you look so attractive to bosses, parents and VIPs, some of you will strike up a romantic relationship with a boss. All of you will enjoy good press and others will ask for your creative input and your creative ideas about something. Meanwhile, travel appeals! You are excited about the possibility of doing something that will expand your horizons and your experience of the world. Bon voyage!
