All Signs

This week we have a strong hit of Uranus happening. Uranus was discovered around the time of the French Revolution. (“Liberty! Equality! Fraternity!”) Uranus represents the defiant energy to break free from oppression. It challenges the rigid structures you work hard to maintain. It is associated with the unexpected, something out of step in your everyday world. It forces you to break free of mind-numbing habits and blows fresh air into your life. It rejuvenates and makes you feel younger and more alive! It’s a reminder that you will never again be as young as you are as you read these words. Therefore, Carpe Diem! (That’s Latin for “Fish Sale!”)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your ruler fiery Mars is lined up with unpredictable Uranus in one of your Money Houses. You definitely have to pay attention because at the beginning of the week, something unexpected could impact your wealth, your earnings, your assets and your possessions. To put it mildly, you might find money; you might lose money. Be aware and conscientious so that you can protect what you own from loss, theft or damage. On the upside, someone might suddenly give you something. Or perhaps, you will display sudden generosity to someone else? Sudden purchases for your home, especially something beautiful, will please you. You might spontaneously entertain at home, especially on Tuesday. Protect your financial situation again on Friday.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Caution! As this week begins, fiery Mars is in your sign lined up with wild, wacky Uranus, triggering sudden upsets, rash behaviour and unexpected incidents. It will be difficult to make plans because many things will happen without warning, and suddenly — your plans have gone south in a New York minute. You’ll have a tendency to be impulsive and act rashly. This same energy can make you careless because you’re moving too fast, not thinking ahead of time. Perhaps you’re angry at someone? You definitely want to assert your individual freedom. And why not? It’s time to do your best imitation of Janis Joplin, “… freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.”

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a tricky week. Your fast-paced continues with errands, short trips, plus increased reading, writing and studying. You might be busy at home with repairs and family discussions. Nevertheless, something surprising and unexpected going on behind the scenes will catch you off guard, especially at the beginning of the week. It could impact your earnings. For example, you might spontaneously buy something unusual, modern or high tech. You might also receive a gift of money that you did not expect. (Fingers crossed.) Do your best to stay mellow this week, even though life will feel unsettled. Be patient with coworkers on Friday when upsetting issues might catch you off guard. (An Eastern proverb says, “Even a hurricane only lasts a day.”)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your focus on money, possessions and your personal values continues this week. However, a friend will surprise you – no question. Especially during the beginning of the week. Possibly, for some, this surprise is an encounter with someone who is different or unusual in some way. This surprising encounter might also be connected with a club or an organization. You might join a protest group. (Or you might be asked to leave!) This unexpected interaction might ultimately impact your relations with kids or with a romantic partner. It’s complicated; but at least, it’s not a boring week. Remember not to act hastily so you can avoid later regrets. Be mindful.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This continues to be a powerful time for you with the Sun in your sign. You can rejuvenate and restore your strength. You can also attract people and favourable situations to you. However, this week, begins with something abrupt, sudden and unexpected, very likely dealing with a parent or a boss. This person might do something that surprises you; or in turn, you might feel that you have to defy them or break free of their restrictions or ill-advised rules. (They will seem ill advised from your point of view.) Basically, you are not a follower, you are a leader. Therefore, you do not like to be told what to do. Be patient with family members on Friday. Be gracious and do what you can to keep the peace. Be an example.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Tread carefully if travelling this week because many of you will face delays, cancellations and interruptions. This same unexpected influence might impact legal matters or something to do with a medical situation. Some will be surprised through the media. If travelling, double check details before you leave home. Be mindful and pay attention to everything you say and do to avoid accidents. You might also meet a real character this week, especially around Tuesday. Or perhaps, someone you know will do something that surprises you. Be patient with siblings, relatives and neighbours on Friday. In fact, stay chill to avoid an accident then, as well. (Yikes!)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This continues to be a lovely week to schmooze with others, especially because you feel particularly sociable. Enjoy good times with friends, as well as interacting with clubs and organizations. In particular, you’ll make a fabulous impression on bosses and VIPs, which is why some of you might strike up a sudden romance with someone in a position of authority, especially around Tuesday. Meanwhile, check banking details and anything to do with inheritances, shared property and insurance matters because this week begins with a surprise or something unexpected that could impact shared property, debt or your finances in some way. Stay top of these red-tape areas so that you are not caught off guard, because when it comes to money – you snooze, you lose.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This week will definitely hold a few surprises for you. You continue to be high viz. with the Sun at high noon in your chart. Furthermore, you continue to make a fantastic impression on everyone, without doing anything special. Go figure. However, a partner or close friend is sure to surprise you at the beginning of the week. This could be an explosive argument, unexpected news, or the introduction to someone who is unusual or surprising in some way. Get ready. Meanwhile, surprise opportunities to travel might come your way early in the week. You might also meet someone unusual or hear pleasing unexpected news about something to do with higher education, the media, publishing, medicine or the law. Be patient on Friday, when you will feel tested.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You love to travel. But this month, you’re especially eager to spread your wings. Grab every opportunity to do this! Meanwhile, discussions with bosses and people in power will be favourable. In fact, people will listen to you, so don’t hesitate to speak up. Unexpected goodies, gifts and favours from others might come your way, especially around Tuesday. However, at the beginning of the week, something related to pets, your health or your job might surprise you or catch you off guard. Prepare yourself and get ready for this. You might have to streamline a situation. Or you do something so that you have more time to have wiggle room to deal with the unexpected. Ditto again on Friday.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This continues to be an intense time, with strong psychological compulsions surfacing. (Why do I keep opening and closing the fridge?) You might be concerned about finances that are jointly held or trying to get a loan or a mortgage. Parents must be aware that the beginning of this week is an accident-prone time for your kids. Therefore, be vigilant. Know where they are at all times. Likewise, sports accidents can occur. Social plans are subject to cancellation and sudden changes. Romantic relationships could be on rocky ground. Unexpected things might occur and later boomerang back on Friday. Fortunately, Tuesday brings good news related to partners and friends.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Focus on home and family this week because something unexpected will occur. Take precautions to avoid fires and home accidents. Likewise, be patient with family members to avoid arguments. A moment of distraction could lead to a home accident. Could be major or minor. If negotiating a real-estate transaction, double check every angle. Ironically, the next day Tuesday, something favourable might surprise you at work. Or it could relate to your health or even a pet. Keep your cool when dealing with parents and authority figures on Friday. George Burns was right, “Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family – in another city.”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

It’s a good thing that you’re on top of your game this week — working hard and being as efficient as possible — because at the beginning of the week, there’s an accident-prone influence for your sign. Therefore, stay tuned. Be mindful and aware. Pay attention to everything you say and do because it will be easy for you to go off half-cocked, and say or do something without thinking. And you might regret this later. And beware: this same unchecked energy will manifest again on Friday. This week is not just about some serious warnings. Tuesday might bring a fun invitation to an entertaining event, possibly the theatre, a musical group, a sports event or playful activities with kids. An exciting invitation might surprise!
