This week we are walking a tight rope balancing heart and mind — logic versus emotional sentiments. By midweek, balance will be achieved. (“I want a hot dog. Make me one with everything!”) However, Wednesday is also the only Full Moon all year in productive and useful Capricorn. It will make us feel more personally in charge of our lives. We don’t need the approval of others; instead, we have our own inner validation. I once heard a wise teacher say, “If you think you know something and you don’t – that’s arrogance. If you think you know something and you do – that’s confidence.” Dale Carnegie said, “Action breeds confidence. If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” (Hmmm, does this mean I have to get dressed?)
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Your home scene might be interrupted this week with unusual surprises and events. Renovations and repairs along with unexpected visitors are some examples. A family member might have an unusual idea? Or perhaps, a family member will do something a bit dazzling or different? Meanwhile, an element of confusion will be at play with siblings, relatives, neighbours and daily contacts. This could make you underestimate a situation or not “get” what’s going on. (Usually, you are quick to see what’s happening.) Be aware that your ability to interpret what’s happening around you might not be hundred percent reliable. By the end of the week, entertaining at home will be fun! Make plans.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This is an active, busy week because Mars in your sign is boosting your energy and keeping you busy. But expect your daily routine to change. Oh yes! You might meet someone who sets a chain of events in motion that you didn’t expect. Something out of the blue might occur. Whatever happens, you can handle this because Mars is supporting you. Be aware that financial matters might create confusion. For starters, you’ll be tempted to go overboard buying something luxurious. (Not surprising because you adore collectibles.) Be forewarned something might not be as it appears. Double check purchases. Save your receipts. By the weekend, a short trip or discussions with others will be upbeat and fun!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Be careful because there is a tricky aspect happening this week: Venus in your sign is having a confusing dance with fuzzy Neptune. This could make you unrealistic in your dealings with others but you’re not aware of it. For example, you might be disappointed because someone doesn’t live up to your ideals. (Note: Unexpressed expectations almost always lead to disappointment.) In one way, Venus will make you seek out romantic moments with loved ones, candlelit dinners with romantic vibes. But it might also create a confused situation that leads to a breakup. Meanwhile, impulse shopping will take place. Fortunately, you’re happy about your possessions and financial matters by the end of the week. Perhaps a special purchase?
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This continues to be a strong week because the Sun and Mercury are in your sign. In fact, Mercury will get an electric jolt from Uranus this week, triggering new discoveries, new encounters and exciting new events. You will impulsively do things like suddenly reaching out to others. Caution about rash, impulsive decisions, especially because with Venus hiding in your chart, you might feel confused about a relationship, especially a secret love affair. You might even be deceived! Therefore, think carefully before you make important decisions because somethings in your world are puzzling. (“No matter what I do to kid-proof the house – they keep getting in!”)
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This week is weird. Both the Sun and Mercury are stirring up your subconscious more than usual. You might revert to childhood behaviour patterns that you thought were long gone. (“These are mine!”) This can mean your actions might work against you and suddenly, you’re your own worst enemy. (“Really? I’ve had worse.”) Beware of sudden, “bright” ideas that might not be so bright, even though they initially dazzle with promise. Meanwhile, relations with an artistic person might be confusing even deceiving. You’re not sure how to handle things. You might be disappointed in this person. (Leos have high standards for their friends.) Fortunately, by the weekend, you’re happy. There’s sunshine in your soul.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You’re popular! Everyone wants to see your face, especially younger people. You also look good to bosses, parents, teachers and the police. (Major bonus!) Fortunately, you’re full of bright, creative ideas that impress friends and member of groups to which you belong. You might start off on a new path or suddenly embrace new goals that are bold and different. However, something to do with a parent or a boss might confuse you or end up in a misunderstanding. For some, this misunderstanding could lead to a breakup of the relationship. Too many assumptions? Fortunately, by the weekend, opportunities to schmooze with others abound. “Come out to the coast. We’ll get together, have a few laughs.”
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
This week you are admired, which means you have an advantage. If you ask someone for something, whatever you say will be well received. (Good to know.) Furthermore, you’re full of bright, clever ideas that you can suggest to a boss or someone in power. (Possibly, it’s the other way around and an authority figure has a bright idea that they suggest to you.) Either way, everyone wins! Nevertheless, be aware that travel plans or something to do with foreign countries might be confusing this week. Something might promise more than it can deliver. Or perhaps, you will fall for appealing propaganda that isn’t truthful? By the end of the week, a parent or boss might help you or do you a favour. Yes!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You are still keen to travel and do anything that will broaden your horizons. You’re full of bright, unusual ideas, which means you might travel impulsively. Others will experience sudden changes related to the media, publishing opportunities or something to do with medicine or the law. Hopefully, whatever occurs will benefit you. The area where you have to be astute and wary is anything to do with financial matters with others. This includes inheritances, debt, taxes and insurance disputes. Be cautious in these dealings. Be sure to do your due diligence and check things out because things are not as they appear. Plan on opportunities to travel or do something different and exciting by the end of the week. (“I barely had time to pack my bag.”)
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You’re percolating with ideas about financial negotiations, shared property or anything that you hold jointly with someone else. (Taxes, debt and insurance issues.) At a deeper level, you might have an epiphany about an inner psychological truth. For example, you might see a new way to be a better person. Or you might have a profound conversation with someone? Ironically, relations with those who are closest to you are subject to confusion and disappointment. You might feel let down by someone. You expected more of them. But did they know this? Did you communicate your expectations to them? Keep your pockets open at the end of the week when money and favours will come your way. Yippee!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You need more sleep this week. (This need will end next week when the Sun changes signs.) This week, someone close to you might say or do something that surprises you. Or they might introduce you to someone who is different or unusual. Meanwhile, be careful about relations with work colleagues as well as people related to your health or your dealings with your pet because there will likely be a misunderstanding and disappointment. Knowing this, strive to be clear when talking to others. Happily, your encounters with other will be warm and friendly by the end of the week. Enjoy fun time with partners and close friends!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You are still in work mode, which means you’re getting a lot done simply because you are motivated. (Motivation is everything.) This week you can expect some work-related surprises. You might have some genius-like ideas? Or a coworker might surprise you in some way? Or you might meet a new coworker or a new method of doing something? Surprise work-related travel might happen. Could be anything! Meanwhile, romance might disappoint some of you. You might want to ask yourself if you had unrealistic expectations about someone? By the end of the week, you’re pleased with your health or your work or something to do with a pet. Good time to tackle chores.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Parents must be extra vigilant this week because this is a mildly accident-prone week for your kids. Keep this in mind. Meanwhile, surprise invitations to social events or exciting diversions might suddenly pop up? Admittedly, social plans might be suddenly cancelled or delayed because anything to do with your social scene, romance, the arts and dealing with your kids is subject to sudden changes. Meanwhile, something at home might disappoint you. Perhaps you expected more from a family member? You might feel let down. One thing is certain: you want to entertain, and the perfect time will be this weekend, when vibes are sunny and friendly! Creative projects are favoured then, as well.
