Last week, triggered rebellions and direct action. This week, Neptune will promote creativity, imagination, escapism, peaceful solutions and powerful dreams. It’s the perfect time for artistic projects and using our imagination. But Neptune is tricky. It blurs the lines between reality and illusion. We might think we’re on a noble quest, but it’s really just an excuse for adventure. Escape through drugs will rise. The best approach? Maintain a relaxed attitude. Carry on with business as usual, while creative ideas percolate on the back burner, especially if you’re an artist. Speaking of artists. Do you know the difference between an amateur and a professional? The professional always throws away her best work.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You excel at arts and crafts. You love doing something for the first time to puncture the mystique of how it’s done. Ah yes! That resounding satisfaction of the “ah ha” moment. Two different influences are at play this week: You want to be low profile. That’s fine. Nevertheless, bosses and people in authority admire you. They see your talents and they’re prepared to reward your efforts. You can run but you can’t hide. Keep working at what you’re doing, because you’re heading for a time of recognition this summer. Perhaps as early as May. (Auguste Rodin, the sculptor of The Thinker, said, “I choose a block of marble and chop off whatever I don’t need.”)
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This is a lovely week to enjoy the company of others. You’ll be happy with friends plus, groups and organizations. In fact, because your idealism is aroused, you might work on behalf of a charitable organization or join the efforts with others to help those who are less fortunate. Creative groups related to the performing arts or music will be rewarding to experience. Meanwhile, some of you will fall in love with, or develop a crush on, someone who is “different” — perhaps from another culture. You might also join forces to advance the cause of good in another country or a far-away place. Many healing possibilities exist.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You make a fabulous impression on others this week, especially bosses, parents, teachers, the police and people in power. They see you as wise, compassionate and helpful. In fact, because you attract admiration and praise — gifts and favours from others might come your way. If you deal with important financial decisions about shared property, inheritances or debt, you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank. However, some of you might use your influence or clout with people in power to do fundraising and allocate resources or money to those who need help. It’s beneficial to help others in need, for your own good as well as theirs, because what goes around, comes around.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Travel plans and a desire to escape somewhere wonderful and exotic will appeal this week. That’s because you have a strong urge to “get away from all this;” and possibly, this is shared by a close friend or partner. If you can’t swing a major vacation, maybe you can do a mini escape? Some will use the platform of social media, publishing, higher education or the law to promote ideas of peace and welfare for others. Some of you will welcome a chance to help a partner or close friend because in small ways (or big), you see how to make a positive difference in their life. This is a wonderful week for you to practice kindness.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This week, you have rewarding opportunities to help someone, most likely through your job or through any effort or task that you set for yourself. For starters, you might help a coworker either directly with physical assistance or advice; or you might help someone because you inspire them. (You are definitely someone who knows how to inspire others and encourage them to be the best they can be.) In another vein (different arm), you might be happy about your health. You might easily heal a problem. Some will have good news or experience greater enjoyment connected with a pet. On the whole, you will be happier in your work and derive a greater satisfaction from what you do, especially if what you do benefits others.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This a creative week! Many of you will explore creative ideas and express your artistic talents. Write down innovative ideas or share them with others. You might be involved with children, especially teaching children or helping children in need. Sports events, especially competitive, might be a strong focus. There are huge romantic possibilities this week – major! Some of you will fall in love. Amusing diversions, social outings, chances to express creative self-expression as well as fun times with children will make this a lovely time for you. It’s a great week for games and fun! Enjoy concerts, museums and places wherever good art can be found.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Many wonderful things will take place this week that affect your home and your family. For starters, you will be thrilled with redecorating ideas or chances to tweak your digs because you’ll be inspired to try new ideas. You might entertain at home. Family relations will be tenderhearted and gentle. Despite your desire to entertain or redecorate, this is also a lovely week to enjoy quiet hours at home, especially to experience the closeness and warmth of family living. Despite the increased activity and chaos at home, you are achieving a wonderful balance and coping superbly. (And remember: If you put out fresh flowers, you don’t have to dust.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Even you might be surprised at how skilful a communicator you are this week. Your words will be like gold! You will know how to please others, soothe a troubled friend, inspire or encourage someone, and make people feel good. In doing so, you will feel a reverberating energy coming back to you, that makes you realize how much love there is in your daily world. These feel-good vibes will be so strong, you will also appreciate the beauty of your daily surroundings more than usual. It’s true! When you change the way you look at things, the things that you look at change. The power of perception. Meanwhile, many of you will see ways to make money from your words through writing, teaching, selling or acting. Bravo!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Even though your primary focus is on home, family and a parent (for many); nevertheless, money and possessions are also a strong focus for you this week. For starters, you might be shopping and buying beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. If so, be careful about being too extravagant because you will be tempted to do this. Care in spending is advisable. Meanwhile, financial negotiations will be favoured. It will be easy to borrow money. Investments will look worthwhile, especially those related to the arts, gas, oil and beauty products. However, keep your eyes open and be careful about anything that looks too good to be true. Perhaps it is.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
This is a powerful week for you because Venus and Mars are in your sign and each of them is affected by Neptune. Neptune will cast an illusory magical vibe on the energy of these two planets in your sign, which in turn, will make you feel gentle and warm hearted to everyone. You will have a strong desire to relate to others and to make peace where there is discord. You are ready to compromise because you understand both sides of the question. This is a good week to enjoy the company of others. You will also like to take a vacation because you will rank pleasure above work. However, you will assert yourself on behalf of others, especially if you want to defend someone from injustice. Note: This is a wonderful time to dance.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
This is almost a mystical time for you. In one way, admittedly, you are concerned about money, cash flow, earnings and your possessions. You’re taking stock of your wealth. However, another completely different vibe will affect you at an unconscious level. You will enjoy solitude because you feel content and happy to be in your skin. A strong dreamlike quality might pervade your days and certainly your nights! In fact, your dreams might be vivid and memorable. Personally, you will be selfless in your genuine concern for others. You want what’s best for someone else. You will feel self-denial in love relationships because your highest concern is for your loved one. (Pretty heady stuff!)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
This is such a powerful time for you! The Sun, Jupiter and Neptune continue to be in your sign; however, this week, they are dancing with Venus and Mars, which will benefit friendships and all your relations with friends and group activities. You will be more loving and affectionate with others. Because your ego energies will be low, you will easily get along with everyone. Romance will be delightful and friendly. For some, a friend will become a lover. Lofty goals will appeal because you believe in yourself more than usual. In fact, you will see that the only thing holding you back was your own lack of confidence. You understand that Richard Bach was right, “Argue for your limitations, and they’re yours.”
