There’s a lot happening! This week, the Sun moves into Libra where it will stay for the next four weeks. At the end of the week, Mercury goes retrograde until Oct. 18 (nevertheless the shadow phase continues until Nov. 3. Therefore, if buying big-ticket items like cars, trucks computers and cell phones, wait until after Nov. 3.) The week starts off on a happy, upbeat note. Yay! But by Wednesday, squabbles are likely. Cat owners might feel calmed by “furplay”. ((That semi-elicit feeling you get when a cat rubs against your leg.) This is not to be confused with another faintly elicit feeling – “muffinlust”! That’s the anticipation you experience when undressing a cupcake.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
In the next four weeks, you will have a strong focus on close friendships and partnerships because the Sun is opposite your sign. (This is the only time all year this occurs.) When this happens, you have the advantage of having more objectivity, which allows you to more clearly see the relationship you are in. Nevertheless, Mercury retrograde is also taking place opposite your sign. Oy! This will attract ex-partners and old friends back into your world. Sometimes this is an opportunity for fun times and a chance to catch up on old history. Sometimes it’s disastrous. That’s because ex-partners come in all flavours, shapes, sizes and colours.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
There are different messages for you this week. As the Sun changes signs this week, it means that for the next four weeks, you’ll be gung-ho to work hard, work smart, and get better organized! You will set high, personal standards for yourself and want results for your efforts. Commendable! (So far so good.) However, Mercury retrograde will rob you of some of your desired efficiency. You will encounter delays, goofy mistakes, mixed-up communications, lost paperwork, missed appointments and broken equipment (including transportation). This means that right when you want to be on top of your game, Mercury retrograde will be like Loki – the trickster – trying to sabotage your best efforts. Courage!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You’re in a playful mood at the beginning of the week. Ideally, you would love to escape somewhere, especially a fun vacation. Relations with children will also be pleasant. Admittedly, midweek there will be dissension or power struggles. The good news is that the next four weeks will bring opportunities to have fun and socialize with others. Sports events will delight. Fun activities with kids will please you. This is an excellent window of time to be on a vacation. Meanwhile, old flames might be back in the picture. This can be a challenge. Sometimes it’s dreadful or sometimes you’re Jennifer and Ben? Note, this is a strong week for those in competitive sports because you will give everything you have!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The next four weeks will be a strong emphasis on home, family and your private life. Many will be more involved than usual with a parent. One of the reasons you might have this strong focus on home and family is because of family reunions. Relative you haven’t seen for a while might be camped on your doorstep and eating out of your fridge. Hopefully, someone will help you with home repairs? You’re keen to make improvements and changes at home. Be patient with partners on Wednesday to avoid power struggles. (You need that like a fish needs a bicycle.)
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Expect a fast-paced four weeks ahead! Your daily pace will accelerate because of a jampacked schedule full of short trips, appointments, meetings, extra time spent with siblings and relatives, increased studying and reading plus conversations with everyone. You’ll be full of ideas and eager to communicate. Please note: in this same window of time, Mercury retrograde will trip you up because it is sitting in its own “home.” Expect transportation delays, mixed-up communications, misplaced items, cancelled appointments, goofy errors and crazy misunderstandings. Very likely, you will hear from old friends and run into people from your past. Enjoy redecorating at home and buying pretty things.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
“Show me the money!” In the next four weeks, you will focus on money, cash flow and earnings. You might contemplate big expenses and major purchases. You will have moneymaking ideas, especially ideas you considered once before. Why not try again? Run it up the flagpole to see if anyone salutes? Meanwhile Mercury retrograde will cause delays and mistakes. Cheques in the mail will be late. Be aware of all financial transactions because it’s easy to make a mistake now. Perhaps information is incomplete? You might be led astray or jump to wrong conclusions? Disputes about money or possessions on Wednesday are possible. Fortunately, with Venus in your House of Communications, you are charming and diplomatic.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Once a year, for four weeks the Sun is in your sign giving you a chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. That time has arrived! You will feel invigorated, confident and energetic! Things will go your way and you will also attract important people and favourable situations to you. Furthermore, fiery Mars is in your sign! When you add the energy of this to the Sun – you end up being PowerPoint on steroids! Mercury retrograde is also in your sign, which means you will be plagued with silly delays, stupid mistakes misplaced items and car problems. You might encounter ex-partners from the past either in person or online. You might dream about them or think about them? Stay mellow on Wednesday. You will get a lot done this week.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This is an excellent time to buy wardrobe goodies for yourself. (Check the daily Moon Alert to avoid regrets.) Meanwhile, for the next four weeks, the Sun, Mercury retrograde, and fiery Mars are all “hiding” in your chart. This means it’s an excellent time for you to be retrospective and do a little navel gazing. Not only will you benefit from contemplating some inner issues – you might also do research and dig up answers to old problems. It will be very easy for you to “go into the past”. You might also work alone or behind the scenes to do something to shore up your home and family scene. Whatever work you do now will have a pay off in the future. (We like!)
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
The next four weeks are a popular time for you! Younger people as well as physically active people will be in your world. In fact, some of you might be involved with a competition, especially to do with physical sports. Not only will you enjoy the company of others; this window of time offers you a good opportunity to share your hopes and dreams for the future with someone to get their feedback. (This is because their feedback will help you.) Likewise, it’s a good window of time to do some serious goalsetting. Try this. Goals are helpful. They make future decision-making easier and they keep you on track. They give you a sense of purpose and clarity. Meanwhile, a hidden love affair might be taking place for some of you.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
The Sun will be at high noon in your chart for the next four weeks, which symbolically means it will be casting you in a spotlight. This is good news because this spotlight will be flattering! This means that without doing anything special, bosses, parents and VIPs will admire you in the next four weeks. (It’s all smoke and mirrors.) Since you have this marvellous advantage – use it! Now is the time to make your pitch and advance your agenda. Squabbles midweek might take place but don’t let this hold you back. By the end of the week, your ambition will be so strong you will achieve results that please you. This is also a lovely time to enjoy the friendship of creative, artistic people. “You’re related to Pablo? I thought you looked unusual.”
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You will have strong feelings of escapism in the next four weeks. “I gotta blow this pop stand!” Grab every chance to travel that comes your way. You might also explore opportunities in publishing and the media as well as something to do with medicine or the law. You will also have strong opinions about politics, religion and racial issues, which could lead to arguments. You are an idealist and you always want to make the world a better place. Very likely you will be revisiting old issues. Incidentally, Mercury retrograde will help you to finish important papers, manuscripts, screenplays or a book. You might also be in touch with someone in another country whom you have not seen for a while.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Activity is taking place in one of your Money Houses, specifically the one dealing with the wealth and assets of others. Issues will be quite intense for you in the next four weeks. Past situations are suddenly back on your plate again. The good news is that the next four weeks are an excellent time to wrap up old business concerning wills, mortgages, shared property, insurance matters and anything that you own jointly with others. Squabbles and disputes about ownership might take place. Just remember – you can be happy or you could be right. What’s going to be?
