In the middle of this week, fair Venus will dance with unpredictable Uranus making everyone restless and keen for adventure! Surprise invitations to unusual events might occur. Romance will be scintillating and love at first sight is possible. Something to look forward to! Meanwhile, let’s do a reality check about where we have been and where we are. Astrology gives us a wonderful roadmap to get a clearer picture of your game plan. (Even if you don’t have a game plan, tomorrow will arrive, whether you plan for it or not.) I love the quote by Dwight Eisenhower: “In preparing for battle, I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” So true!
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Midweek, you might enjoy romance or a saucy flirtation? You might get a chance to improve the appearance of your work station. Some of you might even get a surprise raise? Or pleasant news about your health? Meanwhile, lucky Jupiter is in your sign, and it will stay there until May of next year. (Yes, it will slip back into Pisces for seven weeks at the end of the year – no biggie.) Jupiter brings you good fortune! Since Jupiter can be in your sign only once every 12 years, make the most of this! Since 2018, you’ve been on a roll. Your challenge now is to figure out how to take time for yourself and yet, satisfy the demands and needs of groups, clubs and friends. There’s only 24 hours in a day. How can you best handle this?
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Surprising social events and entertaining diversions including exciting romance will be a major perk midweek. Yay! Meanwhile, it’s important to know that this is your time of harvest, when your cherished dreams are coming true. Admittedly, you will experience failure because that’s what happens during harvest. You see what works; you see what doesn’t work. Even though you have many responsibilities, this is a productive time for you! That’s why this can be one of the most rewarding times of your life. You will continue to work hard as well as spend money until your birthday next year. (Caution about wasteful spending to gratify your ego.)
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Forgive me for repeating this: Normally, fiery Mars is in your sign for six weeks once every two years. Right now, it’s in your sign until April 2023! (Seven months!) You’re PowerPoint on steroids! Although you might overwhelm friends and partners with your drive and enthusiasm, you can use this increased physical energy to get a lot done! You will also be more of a fighter for your own rights as well as the rights of others. This is a popular year for you, so get out and schmooze! Continue to get your ducks in a row because next year, you enter your time of harvest, which occurs only once every 30 years. Meanwhile, spontaneous entertaining plus shopping for home will occur midweek. Enjoy!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This is an amazing year for you because you look so successful to others. Indeed, many of you are blessed with promotions, awards and accolades for your efforts, if not now, then later in the year. Ironically, recently, you have had to get along with less. For some of you, this is because you have finished some intense encounters with partners, which meant you had to divide assets and make changes. Whatever the cause, you are now forced to stand on your own two feet, which you do very well, thank you. Be ready for a fun surprise midweek. Perhaps an entertaining diversion with a friend, sibling, relative or neighbour? If an invitation comes your way – say yes!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Keep your eyes open midweek because a sudden windfall might come your way. You might get an unexpected raise or a gift or even money? Likewise, you might make an impulsive purchase of something beautiful that pleases you. Meanwhile, this year you want to travel and do anything you can to expand your horizons. Many of you are also exploring opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law, and possibly, higher education. Certainly, partnerships and close friendships have been challenging. In fact, some have bit the dust. In part, this is why you are so goal oriented right now, planning for your future. Enjoy physical activity with friends, such as athletics because this will energize you!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Something delightful will surprise you this week. A fun invitation, a spontaneous social situation, or a flirtation? If it requires a response, act quickly because this window of opportunity is brief. Financial delays are par for the course with Mercury retrograde in your Money House. Cheques in the mail will be late. In either case, you are working hard; in fact, you are busting your buns, which is why at times, you feel overwhelmed. Fear not – you can handle this. Your effectiveness as a human being is being tested. Fortunately, gifts, goodies and benefits are coming to you this year, perhaps indirectly through a partner. No matter how they come – it’s good news for you, practically and financially. Ka-ching!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
This is an excellent year for partnerships. In fact, this is the best year in over a decade for Librans to get married. Meanwhile, many of you have had increased responsibilities with children. In turn, this may have impinged upon your social life and made you withdraw from encounters with others. Ironically, part of you wants to travel and explore new horizons. Nevertheless, you can satisfy this urge by learning more through books and film. Be patient this month with Mercury retrograde in your sign. It can help you in times of introspection, as well as dealing with people and issues from your past.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This year you can either improve your existing job or get a better job! It’s important to know this. (If born late in your sign, this influence continues well into next year.) Meanwhile, since 2012, you have been reinventing yourself. In the last few years, life has been a roller coaster but now, it’s important for you to solidify your home base. This might require home repairs as well as repairing family relationships, including disputes about inheritances or shared property. Expect invitations to surprising events midweek. Grab every chance to socialize with others because your interactions with others will help you discover more about who you are.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You look fabulous to everyone while the Sun is at the top of your chart casting you in a flattering spotlight. Midweek, an unexpected flirtation with a boss or some kind of perk from an authority figure will come your way! Look good because something will happen. This year is a wonderful time for vacations and chances to express your creative talents. Relations with your kids will improve. You might be proud of them. Since 2020, many of you have been in a state of flux with residential moves and job changes. This will stabilize next year. Meanwhile, be patient with partners and close friends while Mars is opposite your sign until May of next year. Patience is the antidote to anger.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Around 2015, you began to downsize your life. By 2018, you set off on a new path; and this year, you have marvellous opportunities to improve where you live. You are also giving serious thought to your values. What is important? You don’t want to be 90 years old, looking in the mirror thinking, “You blew it!” More than any other sign, you like a well-planned ending. Fortunately, you have a lot of energy to work. You’re working hard and also working to improve your health. (This could sound like a contradiction.) Your devotion to accomplishing a lot, as well as improving your health, will continue until next spring. Be ready for unexpected travel opportunities midweek!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
This has been a playful, upbeat year that has been busy! Oh yes, you’ve been hopping! However, you are happy. No need to feel selfish but admit it – in the latter part of this year, and until next spring, you can practically do what you want. You can put your own needs first. You can be playful, independent and claim to the world, “I am!” (Admittedly, conflict with kids might rankle.) Essentially, this is an optimistic time for you, which means enjoy your good fortune! You have been reinventing yourself for the last two years, (a process that is finished in about five years). Expect gifts, goodies and surprises midweek!
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Oh joy! This year, it’s your turn to get richer! You will either earn more money or find a way to save it. The upshot will be that by next year, your assets will have increased – no question. Meanwhile, your home scene has been chaotic and busy due to residential moves, renovations or visiting guests. (Gasp.) You are also in the midst of a time of letting go of people, places and possessions because it’s what you have to do. Do not think of this as a time of loss. Instead, it is a time of lightening up so that you are free to set out on a new path in 2023. A partner or close friend will surprise you this week!
