Did you know that each sign has rulership over different parts of the body? Capricorn rules the knees; and its ruler Saturn rules the teeth, hair and the skeleton. In the last year, more people have had trouble with their joints, especially their knees, plus problems with their teeth. And bad hair days? Don’t even go there! This is because the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are all in Capricorn! This week Mercury will leave Capricorn and move into Aquarius, which will help lighten things. (Do you think instead of getting your teeth whitened, it’s easier to get a tan?) Personally, since the holidays, my dental plan has been chewing on the other side.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This heavy emphasis of planets in Capricorn is a mixed blessing for your sign. Because it occurs at the top of your chart, it emboldens you to go after what you want and achieve success, in your professional career or in any walk of life where you interact with society or create an impression on others. This influence is absolutely beneficial for you! Having said that, this same heavy influence is technically at odds with your Aries Sun, which will definitely encourage problems with your bones and your teeth. Stiff joints are par for the course for many of you right now. Because this is a great time to travel – I suggest you explore somewhere warm, sunny and dry! Why not?
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Although this strong emphasis in Capricorn can encourage problems with teeth and bones for your sign, nevertheless, because Capricorn is in your fellow Earth sign, it is basically very supportive to you. This means you actually have more vigour, determination and strength to accomplish whatever it is you want to do. One thing you want to do is travel and explore the world! You also want to get further education and training to learn something useful. Many of you can likewise act on opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. This month is an excellent time to talk to bosses and VIPs. Maybe you need a raise?
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Like other signs, you too, will feel increased stress in your skeletal structure, joints or anything to do with your teeth, especially in the last year. You won’t have to rely on my dental plan (chewing on the other side) because you can count on financial and practical support from others, as well as indirectly from your partner. As Mercury changes signs this week, you will encounter more chances to travel, learn, study and explore opportunities in publishing and the media. This is actually a good time to do this because Venus is at the top of your chart paving the way for relations with bosses, parents and VIPs. They like you! In fact, for some of you – a romance with a boss could begin.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
All this planetary focus in Capricorn has been challenging for you. Not only has it been challenging for your bones, joints and skeletal structure as well as your teeth in the last year, it’s been challenging for marriages and close partnerships. The thing to keep in mind about Saturn is that it tends to make things look worse than they are. Keep things in perspective. Right now, Venus brings you opportunities to travel and explore romance with someone “different.” In addition, you’re gung ho to work hard because Mars is travelling through your House of Employment. “Hi ho, hi ho, off to work I go!” (Or more appropriately – “I owe, I owe, off to work I go!”)
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
For Leo, this heavy focus on Capricorn is a mixed bag! It has been a great boon to you because it has made it easier for you to work hard and accomplish a lot in the last year. Nevertheless, like many others, you might have encountered problems with your hair, and problems with your teeth and your joints (especially your knees) because this Capricorn influence is taking place in your House of Health. Oh yes. What the large print giveth, the small print taketh away. Fortunately, money from other sources will benefit you now. Likewise, your sex drive is amped and intimacy is affectionate.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Like Taurus, you have benefited from this strong planetary influence in Capricorn because for the most part, it has been supportive to you. It will continue to support you both in terms of your career as well as recreation and playful diversions, especially in areas related to the hospitality industry, the entertainment world, vacations and anything you do for fun and pleasure. Venus is opposite your sign now, which will sweeten relations with partners and close friends. In fact, expect a surprise this week because you might meet someone “different.” (You will welcome any diversion to escape the increased chaos at home.)
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
This strong planetary influence in Capricorn is not easy for you. Almost definitely, most of you have suffered with teeth problems and joint problems in the last year. (Especially the knees.) Even your hair might have been a source of frustration. Aaggh! Nevertheless, the best way to use this energy is to make home improvements and explore real-estate opportunities, especially this year. Likewise, you can do positive things to solidify family bonds and be supportive to family members. Fortunately, Venus will attract the help of coworkers to you. And with Mars in your House of Communications, you can talk your way into and out of anything! Not too shabby.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This continues to be a fast-paced, busy time for you to take short trips, interact with siblings and daily contacts plus enjoy stimulating diversions. It’s also a great time to take courses and learn something new. In fact, many of you are writing and reading more than usual. Despite the demands, you are also working hard to boost your income and yet – in an almost baffling way – you’re spending time partying and enjoying vacations! This means you are living your life with all six burners turned on high. Learn to pace yourself because no one has infinite energy. Protect your health and take time to restore yourself. Meanwhile, romance swoons dizzily along.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Because your ruler is lucky, moneybags Jupiter, by nature, you look for opportunities to make money and expand your world. It’s who you are. Lately, you are keen to boost your income because at a deeper level, you can see that this is possible this year. And it is! Something will increase your wealth whether it is a better salary or money from a sale or an inheritance — but it will be something. You can count on it. Keep hustling because with Mars in your sign now, you have lots of energy to explore many avenues. Meanwhile, Venus encourages entertaining at home as well as redecorating and making your digs more attractive. It’s all good!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Despite this strong influence of planetary activity in your sign, this week you will feel more serious about life. (Remember to smile in your bathroom mirror.) The reason you’re more serious is you will be giving more thought to your duties and responsibilities. Naturally, this serious influence will in turn, tend to make it more difficult to relate to people, in part, because you feel more isolated or alone. Furthermore, you will feel lower energy. Nevertheless, you will do very well at organizing and planning and creating form and order in your life because this week, the Sun is in your sign lined up with your ruler Saturn. It’s a bit like going to the principal’s office or having to account for yourself with the boss. But you can handle this.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
This week Mercury moves into your sign, which means the next few weeks are a great time for you to express your point of view to others. This is because you will put a great deal of yourself into whatever it is you have to say. Ironically, at the same time, your ability to examine yourself with greater objectivity and detachment is superb. (A wonderful combo of influences.) Meanwhile, act on your strong urge to get out and travel, probably for short trips. You will enjoy talking to others and sharing your ideas because you feel mentally alert and confident. And why not? You’re the brainiac of the zodiac! (You were the first to realize that the answer to everything in the universe was 42.)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
For the most part, this strong planetary activity in Capricorn has been a blessing for you but it has kept you busy! Basically, it has magnified your interactions with friends and groups and made you feel indispensable to others. People want your opinions. People want to talk to you. They will seek out your ideas as well as your company. Now with Venus in your sign, you are even more charming and diplomatic than usual, which means everyone loves you even more! (It’s almost pathetic.) As Mercury changes signs this week, it will enable you to do research and discover answers to old questions or solutions to old problems. Fortunately, with Mars at the top of your chart boosting your ambition – you’re up for it. “The game, Mrs. Hudson, is on!”
