Today’s General Tarot Card

Knight of Chalices

This is a card of proposals and invitations, of socializing, networking, and making new contacts. There may be artistic or romantic proposal, or simply the enjoyment of good times, perhaps with an invitation received to attend a propitious occasion. The invitation may allow for social advancement or provide a desired opportunity to make necessary contacts for emotional fulfillment and satisfaction in life. If representatives of a person, this card is someone who has something beneficial to offer. One’s enthusiasm may prompt openings and opportunities, especially through casual mingling among people who prove helpful. Relaxation and good times are indicated, as well as holiday fun with others, and opportunities. Artistic expression is given direction and finesse. There is also a possible opportunism with this card: someone being capricious with one’s emotions, vacillating and leading one on. Flattery or deception could come into play. or a person could be misleading one either for his or her own gain or simply because of an inability to be emotionally consistent or make a sincere commitment. Other cards in the spread will clarify the intention.

Marigolds, flowers of well being, affection, and relationship, make a wreath. A stork, a symbol of beginnings, devotion, and opportunities, stand by the tree.

Meaning: Artistic direction, romantic or social proposal, invitation, fun, relaxation, opportunity, advancement, emotional sensitivity, developing style, love, breakthrough.

Prompt Words: Proposals, socializing

Today’s Love Tarot Card

Knight of Athames – Court Card

This is s card  of swift action, especially once one’s mind is made up. There is determination and an aggressive approach to getting something done, so the inherent warning is to look before leaping. Spur-of-the-moment enthusiasm and the excitement of embarking on a new objective  could result in a lack of preparation or making a premature commitment without a solid understanding of what is involved. There a an element of impulsiveness and a sense of self-assuredness that could board on recklessness in pursuit of adventure. However, this card indicates a smart, eager, and courageous person who is goal-focused and has the capacity to succeed with determination and incisiveness. Sudden changes are possible, as well as the skill to solve one’s own problems. Impatience and a quick temper may hinder cooperation from others; however, this card indicates someone who is competent and able to take charge for a successful conclusion.

Peppermint for action, challenges, and accomplishment, grows wild along the track. A badger, a symbol of assertiveness, determination, and action, watches from one side of the track.

Meaning: Swift action, aggressive energy, self-assured, sudden changes, boldness, courage, ability, skill, incisive career activity, bravery, heroic action, quick implementation of ideas.

Today’s Rune

From The Rune Site

ISA

Sound: “i”, “ee” as in “east”
Stands for: Ice
Color: Brown (Black)
Casting meaning: Like an icicle formed at the start of winter, with this rune we can only wait until the warmth of the sun allows us to be free from a constricting form. Isa represents a halt in activity until a change is made.

Today’s Witches’ Rune  

From The Summer Goddess Book of Shadows

WAVES

The Waves Rune stands for intuition and artistic imagination as well as cloudy perception. In this way, this run stands for self-sacrifice or self-sabotage.

When this rune turns up in a reading, it indicates that the answer is still not clear. Often, the matter of your concern will soon dissipate or phase out with no resolution or closure.

On the positive side, the Waves Rune represents a wellspring of creativity where you are nourished by the power of your own imagination.

Sometimes this rune means that the matter you have asked about depends upon your timing. So what you can imagine can become a reality, as long as you are willing to clarify and follow through.

Today’s Ogham Stave 

From Ogham Symbol Gallery

H is for Huath, or Uatha, and is symbolic of the Hawthorn tree. This prickly-thorned tree is associated with cleansing, protection and defense. Tie a thorn with a red ribbon and use it as a protective amulet in your home, or place a bundle of thorns under a baby’s crib to keep bad energy away. Because the Hawthorn typically blooms around Beltane, it is also strongly connected with fertility, masculine energy, and fire.

In folklore, the Hawthorn is associated with the land of the Fae. Thomas the Rhymer met the Faerie Queen under a Hawthorn tree and ended up in the Faerie realm for seven years. Despite its connection with female and goddess-centered pre-Christian belief, it’s considered unlucky to bring Hawthorn into your home. This may stem from the fact that some species of Hawthorn give off a particularly unpleasant –almost corpse-like–scent after they’ve been cut. No one wants their home to smell like death.

In Glastonbury, England, there’s a famous Hawthorn tree known as the Holy Thorn. The tree that stands there today is supposed to be a descendant of one that stood on Glastonbury Tor two thousand years ago, when Joseph of Arimathea brought the Grail to England from the Holy Land. When Joseph thrust his staff into the ground, it turned into a Hawthorn tree.

Birch Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: If you’re hoping to conceive a child, the appearance of Huath could be fortuitous. In addition to fertility, consider this a sign of protection, healthfulness and self-defense.

Magical Aspects: Understand that no matter how thorny a problem may be, you can use your spiritual strength to protect and guide you. You may also find that you can provide strength to those who depend on you.

Today’s Numerology Number

From NUMEROLOGY SINGLE DIGIT NUMBERS

The Numerology Meaning of the Number 3: THE CREATIVE CHILD

The Love Child of Zeus and Hera.

In the previous chapter (on the number 2), I described the unique union between the numbers 1 and 2 as that of the father and mother unit, while revealing the contradictory natures of their personalities. Now, we move on to what could be considered the result of their union: the number 3, an extraordinarily talented child.

The number 3 is like a gifted teenager who is still under the protection of its parents – a bit spoiled, clearly scattered, and perpetually in need of guidance. However, the 3 excels in the creative field.

An individual with 3s in key points of their numerology chart will have a passionate need to express feelings, ideas, and vision. Coupled with an extroverted personality, they are likely to seek a career in art, especially the verbal arts.

Another unique quality of the 3 is the tendency to be “lucky,” or rather, to be in the right place at the right time. This may be connected to their innate sense of rhythm – the 3 seems to be in tune with the cyclical nature of their surroundings.

Their social skills are also excellent.

Charm, wit and a sense of humor help a 3 along their path, and a compelling charisma make them particularly attractive.

Followers are willing to forgive less favorable traits exhibited by 3s, such as their lack of focus and direction, a tendency to procrastinate, an inability to finish projects, and an unwillingness to take responsibility.

There is also a superficial side to the 3 that can be harder to look past – a narcissistic streak, the need to be the center of attention. It’s easy for the optimistic 3 to enjoy day-to-day life as long as all is well, but when challenging issues arise, internal fortitude is often lacking.

Without little focus on deeper aspects, the 3 can succumb to difficulties unless friends and family provide support.

For the 3 to become a balanced, happy person they must learn discipline. Fortunate 3s who exhibit talent early in life (such as gifted dancers and music prodigies) are often placed in environments with just the sort of discipline a 3 needs to protect those talents.

Relationships can be a bit of a challenge for the 3, at least those requiring long-term commitment and loyalty. With plenty of acquaintances (probably more than is healthy), when true depth and intimacy enter the picture, the 3 may turn tail and run.

The 3 can have a jealous streak too, causing conflicts when those it has rejected move on in search of more meaningful bonds.

Jealousy stems from the 3 recognizing it has been skimming the surface of life since birth. As a result, they feel insecure, thinking others know things that have escaped them.

But, once a 3 finds the motivation to delve deeply into the realities of life (something that may only happen when confronted), its happy facade has the potential to be replaced by the serenity true wisdom brings. Such a “transformed” 3 is a thing to behold.

No one is represented by just one number but is a mixture of several if not all the numbers in their chart. Those who are blessed with a heavy dose of 3s in their numerology chart tend to have an easier time being happy, optimistic, and playful.

However, this kind of “joie de vivre” can leave those same people unprepared for the more demanding experiences that life inevitably brings.

While the western mindset focuses on happy moments as the ideal, unhappy experiences are often the ones that bring greater depth and quality to our life.

For the number 3, happiness might be easy to achieve, but is almost always a consequence of something materialistic or fleeting (a new car, a new relationship, a sunny day). A higher happiness, one that is not the consequence of a particular event but the result of a deep appreciation toward life itself, is worth a million times more.

The biggest challenge for the 3 is to recognize the real beauty of life is not found in possessions or frivolity, but in the deepest aspects of being human.

When the 3 defies the odds to achieve this state of being, the fact that it has had to travel far to reach such a height makes this number uniquely qualified to help others reach the same goal.

Today’s Animal Spirit Guide

OCTOPUS

“Practice shapeshifting by altering your physical appearance and mannerisms”

To become adept at shapeshifting, it’s necessary to remain flexible and resilient, and be willing to practice different identities by altering your way of dressing, your hairstyle, your demeanor, and your mannerisms. Particularly focus on your body language and voice qualities. Experiment by first making small changes in any of these aspects and watch what happens. You can also become skilled in modifying your aura (the energy field around you.) by intentionally contracting and expanding it. When you practice these things, sometimes even your friends won’t recognize you. You can even get so good at camouflage that you become invisible to others.

Everyone has numerous personas though which they operate, and you’re no different. It’s a matter of being conscious of those personas and modifying them through the art of shapeshifting. Just like actors do, study other people and notice their mannerisms, clothing styles, and how they walk and carry themselves.. Observe animals and their behaviors, and try to mimic them. Developing this ability can help you more readily adapt to the various situations you encounter, thus enabling you to deal with them more effectively. Let yourself be an actor in your everyday life, and have fun with it. Just remember who you are at the core.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, June 13, to Saturday, June 19, 2021

All Signs

Saturn makes a harsh pass at Uranus this week, which could bring upsets to material wealth. (Ouch.) Meanwhile, the last time Mars was in Leo was two years ago in July/August 2019. Being an energy planet, Mars will pump your ego and energize the Fire signs for the next two months — Aries, Leo and Sagittarius (plus Gemini and Libra cuz they’re buddies). Meanwhile, Mercury retrograde continues until June 22. (Note: If buying ground transportation, computers and cell phones, wait until July 8, when the shadow is gone.) On the upside, Mercury retrograde will help you finish old business. Nevertheless, Mars will give you the energy to put the PRO back in procrastination! A cruel hoax? Indeed!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Expect a surprise from a friend or a group this week. (This surprise could impact your finances.) Meanwhile, because of the frustrations of Mercury retrograde, be smart and allow extra time for everything, especially when you leave your home. This is because your daily travel will incur delays. Arrrg! Flat tires, missed buses, car problems, truck problems, bike problems – you name it. In turn, this will trigger missed appointments and embarrassing delays along with mixed-up communications and forgetfulness. Fortunately, things at home are warm and supportive. In the next two months, Mars will make you playful and supportive. It will boost romance and encourage socializing (and possibly conflict with your kids.) Nothing’s perfect.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Something sudden and unexpected might create obstacles for you at this time. It could relate to the government or rules and regulations. It could be surprising news from a boss or a parent. A sudden change in the role of authority? You might have to step in to do some damage control. Meanwhile, financial delays are frustrating along with cheques that are late in the mail. On top of this, your home scene continues to be full of confusion, increased activity and chaos. Oy! It’s time for a quality Pinot Noir with a nice triple brie. Fortunately, amidst all this, you are charming and delightful. Hats off to you!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Plans related to higher education, future travel or something to do with publishing, the media, the law or medicine might suddenly change. This could catch you off guard. If so, you will be vocal and proactive about this because Mars is in your House of Communications. Fortunately, the Sun in your sign will empower you. Admittedly, your ruler Mercury is retrograde and that is a bit maddening because this creates mistakes, confusion, errors and misplaced items plus delays. However, there is always some good news. Venus will attract money to you. Oh yes. That’s why you will buy beautiful things for yourself and loved ones, which is a sweet bonus.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

In a way, you’re waiting in the wings before your birthday arrives. This means that you are prefer to play things low-key. Of course, fair Venus in your sign encourages socializing and warm times spent with others. This is also a great week to buy wardrobe items for yourself. Make a note of that. (Especially because you are spending money!) Nevertheless, a sudden change to something to do with taxes, inheritances, shared property might impact your wealth. Do be aware of this. This could be good news or bad news. But it is likely unexpected. Whatever happens, it’s a fact that you are having a successful year in 2022, so this sudden impact to your assets won’t hold you back.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Mars is in your sign, you’re energetic and feisty! Furthermore, the Sun and Mercury retrograde are bringing opportunities to socialize with friends, especially people from the past. Your hidden Venus will attract opportunities for secret love affairs. (Oh yes.) However, something unexpected and powerful might impact a close friendship or a partnership. For some of you, a partnership might end. Perhaps a sudden shift will take place in a close relationship? For others, someone unusual, different and new will enter your world. It’s not a boring week. Extend your friendship to others because they will welcome seeing you.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You continue to be high viz., which means that people notice you more than usual. But more than that – they admire you! (Obviously, this week is an excellent time to advance your agenda or make your pitch.) Venus will promote warmer relations with others – friends and members of groups. In fact, a friend could become a lover. Something unexpected will impact your work scene. It could be sudden and create a big change. (Yikes!) Your job might end or change in a dramatic way. This unexpected news might also be something related to your health or a pet. Go slowly so that you are prepared for the unexpected. Pull your act together to stay in control.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You continue to make a fabulous impression on others because your ruler, fair Venus is at the top of your chart. This makes you look attractive to everyone! It also makes you look like you know something about design, layout and that you have good artistic judgment, which most of you do. Your urge to travel and do something different to inject some excitement into your life is still strong. Get out and do anything that gives you a thrill and makes you feel like you’re living! Parents should be careful and vigilant with their kids because accidents or something unexpected could impact your kids. There might even be a family intervention? A vacation might be cancelled. Sports accidents are also possible. Tread carefully. Remember – the future unfolds one day at a time.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You are determined to achieve your goals now. In fact, a number of things have come together that makes you ambitious in a happy, optimistic way. Travel for pleasure will also appeal if this is possible. Romance with someone different might also be in the picture. What cannot be ignored however, is that something very basic and possibly literally to do with the physical structure of your home will suddenly occur this week. It’s unexpected and it affects home and family. It could be related to your physical residence. It might also apply to an older family member. Whatever it is, it will shake things up and require your attention. Steady as she goes.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

First off, let us remember that you need more sleep this week. Definitely. (You work hard and party hard.) You love to travel and this week, you might have a chance to do so because you certainly are pushing the sides of the envelope to explore new ideas, see new places and meet new people. Quite possibly, money, gifts and goodies will come to you – so be receptive to this. Don’t be afraid to attract generosity. Keep your pockets open. Romance is certainly passionate! (That’s a given.) However, please pay attention to everything you say and do because this is an accident-prone time for you. Something unusual will interrupt your daily routine.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You are in work mode – no question. Therefore, get as much done as you possibly can this week. Admittedly, Mercury retrograde is in this part of your chart, so you will suffer from delays and goofy mistakes and misplaced or broken equipment. Fortunately, your close relationships are excellent at this time. (And your sex drive is amped!) It’s good to have this wonderful support because something unexpected will impact your earnings or your wealth this week. It could be good; it could be bad. A sudden influence might bring loss, damage or theft to your possessions. Alternatively, you might suddenly acquire something you least expected to get! Stay alert and guard what you own.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This fabulous, playful planetary influence continues this week. Lucky you! Accept all invitations to party and enjoy sports events plus creative activities with kids. Relations with coworkers are splendid. The only fly in the ointment is that you might feel annoyed with a partner or close friend because of some kind of tension building up between you. (Patience is your best ally.) Midst all of these wonderful influences, nevertheless, you feel caught off guard by something unusual this week. It might make you feel rebellious. You will want to protect your independence. You might even lash out in a sudden unexpected way. Basically, this could mean a sudden break with a person, a friendship, a partnership or a particular situation. If so, this could be freedom from something that was previously oppressive.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Home, family and your private life continue to be your primary focus, especially because many of you have been revisiting past issues with family members. Or perhaps, relatives are camped on your doorstep eating out of your fridge. (It was ever thus.) Fortunately, you are charged up to work and be as productive as possible. Nevertheless, Venus will encourage you to party and have good times, while lucky Jupiter in your sign will basically encourage good fortune in your life. However, something going on behind the scenes will be disruptive this week. It could be that there was an unconscious need for change in your life and now it’s occurring in an upsetting way. Hopefully, you will become free of something that you’ve been putting up with for too long.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, June 6, to Saturday, June 12, 2021

All Signs

Mars is an energy planet. It visits one sign for seven weeks every two years. According to the sign it is in, it will be in a different part of your chart and affect you in different ways. (There will be a pop quiz on this next Tuesday.) This week Mars moves into Leo, which is exciting news! It’s summer, and in most areas, Covid restrictions are relaxing. This means we want to party! We want to barbecue! We want to enjoy sports, social outings, the arts and fun times with kids. (The freedom is dizzying!) Think haircuts, manipeds and restaurant patio dinners with a real server. Hot air balloons! Close dancing! Oh yeah! Put on your pants and brush the back of your hair. “Table for six?”

Aries (March 21-April 19)

There are three Fire signs and you are one of them. This week Mars moves one of those Fire signs. (They are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.) When Mars is in one of them, it supports you like the third leg of a three-legged stool. Since Mars is an energy planet, this means for the next seven weeks, your energy will be high! Your self-confidence will be strong. You will be more effective and more competent in everything you do. Because this Fire sign is Leo, it means a very playful part of your chart is energized! Romance will blossom! Your interest in sports (especially competitive) will be strong. You will do exactly what you want to do.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

When Mars changes signs this week, it means your home, family and private life will be energized. At a glance, this looks good. It means you have more determination to deal with your domestic world. But this increased energy will also create chaos and confusion at home. Visiting guests, renovations, residential moves will be a challenge! In fact, these challenges by extension, could create tension within the family, especially with a parent. Domestic strife is classic when Mars is in this part of your chart. The thing to keep in mind is that this is a short-term. In about seven weeks, Mars will move on to energize the most playful, fun-loving part of your chart. Until then — patience.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The Sun is still in your sign with Mercury retrograde, which lasts until June 22. This is why you are misplacing things and making goofy mistakes! (However, if you’re buying a Mercury-related item like a computer, car or cell phone, wait until the shadow of Mercury retrograde is gone, which is July 8.) Meanwhile, this week fiery Mars moves into the part of your chart that deals with your daily activities and your style of communicating to others. This means that for the next two months, the pace of your days will accelerate and you will be much more forthright and proactive when talking to others. In other words, you will say what you mean and mean what you say!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This continues to be a time when you’re happy to hide in the wings. Nevertheless, Venus in your sign will encourage you to socialize with others. And why not? Venus makes you charming and diplomatic! (Kiss, kiss, hug, hug.) New flash: This week is a lovely time to shop for wardrobe goodies for yourself. A summer dress? Strappy sandals? Cargo shorts? This week is also when fiery Mars moves into your Money House encouraging you to work hard to make money; and at the same time, spend money! In particular, you will be happy to use your possessions to get something done. Of course! (The reverse is such a waste.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Things are certainly looking up for your sign because this week, fiery Mars is moving into Leo! (The last time it was in Leo was in July-August 2019.) When Mars is in your sign, it denotes great activity in your life. It promotes your desire to work hard and further your own interests. It also gives you the energy to work hard to follow through on your desires. It makes you much more of a fighter for your own rights than usual, as well as the rights of others. Your physical energy will be high and you will accomplish a great deal. The only downside is you might come on too strong for others. If you see the hair blowing back over their ears – that’s a sign. Be nice to the little people.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You continue to make a fabulous impression on others because the Sun is at the top of your chart casting you in a flattering spotlight. Meanwhile Venus encourages warm bonding with friends and groups. Everyone loves you! This week, Mars moves into a hidden part of your chart, which is tricky. Someone out there might not have your best interests at heart. (This might or might not happen.) But it is a warning. So, if you think something fishy is going on – it is! Meanwhile, in this hidden position, Mars can easily make you give others the wrong impression, which undermines your position. (“Did I just say that?”) Therefore, be mindful of everything you say and do. Use your personal editor.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Things are going swimmingly because your ruler Venus is at the top of your chart making you look fabulous to everyone. People will seek your advice about artistic matters or how to make something look better. Romance with a boss or someone in authority might occur. Meanwhile, you’re excited about travel or the possibility of doing something “different.” Do note that fiery Mars is entering your House of Friendships this week to stay for seven weeks, which encourages physical activities with friends, especially athletics, and it makes you competitive. You will refuse to take a backseat position. You will also resent group pressure. Coordinate your needs with the needs of others for a win-win solution.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You have a growing desire to travel and explore new places, new ideas and learn new things. You will also have an excellent opportunity to wrap up old business with insurance issues, taxes, inheritances and shared property. This week, fiery Mars moves to the very top of your chart, which will definitely arouse your ambition. It will stay there for the next seven weeks, which will make you identify with whatever project you’re doing, which in turn, is why you will work extremely hard to get it done! The only downside is that conflict with coworkers might arise because they feel threatened by your hard work and energy. (You also might be a tad bossy.) “Moi?” “Yes, you.”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Like Aries and the principle of a three-legged stool, you benefit by Mars moving into your fellow Fire sign this week. Mars is an energy planet and it will give you more support in everything that you do, especially if it requires physical energy. This is why you will enjoy increased self-confidence; enthusiasm and feel more competent and more effective. You will be clear about your intentions and know exactly what course you want to follow. Mars will also boost your sex drive! (Well, Mars boosts everything.) As the traveller of the zodiac, you’ll be delighted to hear that Mars will spur your desire to travel and explore the world. Oh yes, you want it all – first-class.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You like efficiency and production, which is why you’re happy to work hard. However, you are frustrated by the delays, confused communications, missed appointments, late deliveries and minor moments of mayhem in your job due to Mercury retrograde. Please remember: Mercury retrograde will help you finish old business, so, you can use this to your advantage! Venus opposite your sign beautifully promotes warm relations with those closest to you. This week, Mars moves into one of your Money Houses indicating potential disputes about inheritances, shared property, taxes, debt and insurance issues. Arrg. These will be ego conflicts. Be smart. Think of your long-term objective.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This week is lighthearted and playful! You will enjoy social outings and fun activities with children. Old flames from the past might be in touch. Accept all invitations to have a good time because this is totally appropriate. Relations with coworkers are warm, which is rewarding. However, this week, fiery Mars moves opposite your sign where it will stay for several weeks making relations with those who are closest to you contentious. Disputes with partners and close friends might arise. Basically, these are probably power struggles. The upside is you now have the courage to speak up for yourself and tell your truth. That’s important.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Home, family and your private life continue to be important. Mercury retrograde will recycle past issues that you dealt with at home. “Not this, again!” On the upside, Mercury retrograde will help you finish home projects. Meanwhile, lucky Jupiter and fair Venus want you to party! Both these planets will also promote new love, and enhance existing partnerships. In the midst of this encouraging news, this week, fiery Mars moves into the part of your chart concerning your job, your health and your pet. This means you will work efficiently with perseverance at whatever task you’re doing. Your health will also be invigorated. (A pet might require your attention.) And so it is.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, May 30, to Saturday, June 5, 2021

All Signs

This week there’s good news and bad news. The good news is that leading up to Thursday, fair Venus will dance with lucky Jupiter, which will promote good feelings and fun times for everyone! Some will attract money, gifts and goodies to them! Nevertheless, by Saturday, fiery Mars will oppose big daddy Pluto; and this is a tough scene. It can trigger power struggles and encourage ruthless behaviour and in rare cases, violence. Obviously, we have to take the bad with the good. We can either turn up our eviction speakers, or some day in the future, look back on this and plow into a parked car.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This will be a curious week dealing with home, family and perhaps parents. For most of the week, you will enjoy redecorating your place and making things look better. You will also enjoy entertaining at home. Family relations will be upbeat and positive and people will be generous to each other. (We like this part.) However, something will definitely go off the rails at the end of the week because by Saturday, power struggles, chaos and crazy activity seem to be the order of the day. Gone are the smiles that are now replaced with gritting teeth and daggered glances. (Oh yeah, the Brothers Grimm are watching from afar saying, “No way!”)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

There is no question that this week has a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde overtone. Definitely a time of contrasts! In the beginning of the weekend, leading up to Thursday, your everyday relations with others are wonderful! You are happy with your surroundings. In fact, you appreciate your surroundings and you even appreciate your warm relations with others. (How cool is that?) But something will happen that suddenly pits you against others by the weekend. This confrontation will not be nice. You won’t be happy. In fact, stay away from dangerous areas or violent neighbourhoods because people are on the warpath on Saturday. Better to be safe than sorry.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

In one way, this is a powerful time for you because the Sun is in your sign boosting your energy and attracting people and favourable situations to you. Admittedly, Mercury retrograde is also in your sign attracting old friends, ex-partners and triggering goofy mistakes and misplaced items (to name a few glitches). The contrast of the good news/bad news (see All Signs above) will impact you in a financial way. Initially, you can boost your earnings this week. You can attract money to you. You might also buy beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. However, by Saturday, you’re at loggerheads with someone about shared property, shared responsibilities or how to use a particular possession. Grrrr. Patience is your best ally.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You are keeping a low profile, choosing to be alone or work behind the scenes. Unlike many signs, you can use Mercury retrograde to your advantage because it will help you research issues or dig into the past for solutions and answers. In the beginning of this week, Jupiter will dance with Venus in your sign making you feel contented and happy with social interactions. It’s an ideal time to take a vacation and enjoy socializing with others. You might also feel lazy and self-indulgent. (“Will someone peel me another grape?”) However, by Saturday, you might be involved in an intense power struggle with someone, perhaps a partner or close friend? You’re playing Gary Cooper in High Noon.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a popular week for you. People want to talk to you, especially young people. On the whole, you will be happy because you have a feeling of inner contentment and you feel good about yourself and good about life. You might even have a spiritual epiphany of sorts. (It’s all great.) However, by the weekend, an element of confusion can contribute to a nasty power struggle taking place. Initially, you might feel some kind of resentment building up in you. That feeling of “This is the last straw!” Your best option is not to act out any feelings of resentment because you might do or say something that you later regret. After all, future experiences are largely shaped by present actions.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You look great in the eyes of others because the Sun is still at the top of your chart casting you in a flattering spotlight! This happens only once a year for four weeks so make the most of this. Now is the time to make your pitch and ask for what you want, especially between now and Thursday! In fact, during this window of time, you will get along famously with others. Creative, artistic people will enjoy your company. However, for some reason, by Saturday, you’re at odds with a member of a group or a friend and it’s a real ego battle. (The worst.) “It’s my way or the highway.” Generally, ultimatums with others never work and you know this. Try to find a win-win solution, which is a compromise for everyone. Life is all about accommodation.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your desire for travel and stimulation, change and a chance to learn something new and exciting continues to be strong this week. You might meet people who are “different,” and possibly learn new things from them. You will also enjoy any kind of study or exploration into new ideas and new ways of thinking. Relations with bosses and parents are excellent this week until Friday. In fact, some lovely, positive, planetary aspects will guarantee that you look fabulous to others and you relate well to parents and bosses. However, on Saturday, the bottom falls out of everything! Whaaat? Now you’re at odds with a family member. Strife, arguments or power struggles will be a challenge. Avoid angry people and dangerous places. Do what you can to maintain the peace.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You have lots of passionate energy lately, which some of you have directed into dealing with shared property, taxes, debt and red-tape issues. But not all of you. Some of you are channeling this passion into an exciting relationship! Meanwhile, this week you have lovely opportunities to travel or explore avenues in publishing, the media, the law, medicine or perhaps higher education. You might strike up a new relationship with someone different. All of this will be exciting and gratifying. However, by the weekend, arguments about ideological differences, politics, racial issues – something – will ruin your enjoyment of good times. Stay away from dangerous neighbourhoods and potentially violent people. Definitely.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your focus on close relationships is strong, perhaps due to ex-partners and old friends who are back in your world. One thing that will please you this week is that gifts, goodies and favours from others will come your way. You might even receive money. (Money is always the right colour and the right size.) Likewise, a passionate, sexy relationship might flourish! This is an excellent week to negotiate any kind of financial deal or discussion about how to divide or share something including an inheritance. Unfortunately, by Saturday, everything seems to go south and you find yourself quarreling with someone about money, possessions or property. In other words, it goes from very good to very bad! (It happens.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’re in work mode this week. Stay focused and accomplish as much as possible because this will make you feel rewarded and gratified. Relations with those who are closest to you will improve. Nevertheless, by the end of the week, a confused communication with a coworker might occur. Or perhaps this confused communication is related to your health or a pet? The upshot of this is that you will be at odds with a partner or close friend on the weekend. Basically, it will be a power struggle, which means you can step back and give the situation some space. After all, you want to be happy not angry.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You’re in a playful mood, which means you want to have fun! Anything to do with the arts will delight you, especially if you can express your creative talents. You will enjoy interactions with kids, sports events and social outings. All fun choices! Work-related travel might occur for some. All of you will have excellent relations with work colleagues this week. You might also feel healthy in a vigourous, vital way. Nevertheless, by the end of the week, some kind of confusion, perhaps with your kids or a social event might lead to a power struggle that affects your health or your relations with a coworker or even a pet. Tread carefully!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Home and family are where it’s at this week. Home repairs and improvements along with family discussions will take place. Many of you will be involved more than usual with a parent. Meanwhile, this is a playful, fun-loving week in terms of the arts and good times with kids. It’s also a romantic week! New love will blossom for some of you. Nevertheless, a misunderstanding with a family member might trigger arguments with your kids or a romantic partner by Saturday. These difficulties with others that take place at the end of the week, will require diplomacy, sympathy and understanding of human nature – all of which you have in abundance. Good luck!

Weekly HoroscopeSunday, May 23, to Saturday, May 29 2021

All Signs

And the beat goes on. We have all been feeling the effects of Mercury retrograde; however, this week, Mercury Retrograde officially begins (yes, folks – it’s official) So, what’s the overview for this week? How is this Gemini Sun affecting us? How is Mercury Retrograde (also in Gemini) creating havoc? And what’s up with Mars? And who is that man behind the curtain? The thing to remember about Mercury Retrograde is that as annoying as it can be, it deals with small stuff. Yes, I know that a flat tire or a computer problem doesn’t feel “small”, but it’s not a hurricane. These are niggling frustrations that we can handle. What’s not to handle? “Remember when there were two Scott the Plumbers and then they both moved away at the same time?” That’s major.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a busy fast-paced week. Relations with siblings, relatives and neighbours will be warm and cozy, which is nice. (Plus, it makes life easier.) Nevertheless, Mercury Retrograde will threaten transportation issues. (Aaggh.) Expect missed buses, car problems, truck mishaps, flat tires and unexpected repairs to ground transportation, including bikes. (This is a heavy cross to bear but not as heavy as when both plumbers leave town.) Also, increased chaos and activity on the home front will be maddening and require patience with family members. Reward yourself with some fun socializing, if you can do this safely. This week, your ability to work effectively with everyone will contribute to your productivity.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This week you will be busy socializing with friends and groups – no question. Furthermore, you will be proactive in all your communications with others. You won’t hesitate to say what you mean and mean what you say! Meanwhile, the Full Moon on Wednesday might bring financial matters to a head, especially related to the wealth of your partner or something to do with loans and mortgages. Fortunately, because you are the financial wizard of the zodiac, you will work things out in your favour. Nevertheless, cheques in the mail will be late and goofy, financial delays will be frustrating. Having said that, Venus in your House of Earnings will attract money to you. Yay!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a happening week! The Sun, Mercury retrograde and Venus are all in your sign; and on Wednesday, the only Full Moon directly opposite your sign all year will take place. Yikes! (What do you wear to a midlife crisis?) Tension with a partner or close friend might take place. Possibly due to the fact that ex-partners and old friends are back in the picture? Could jealousy be a factor? (“It’s complicated.”) Fortunately, both the Sun and Venus will empower you and make you confident, charming and diplomatic. In addition, Jupiter at the top of your chart makes your reputation shine! This means whatever happens, you will come out smelling like a rose. No worries.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You are pulled in several directions this week. Part of you wants to hide and keep a low profile, especially because some kind of hidden activity (or a hidden relationship) is going on and you might want to avoid the fallout. Nevertheless, Mars in your sign makes you confident, proactive and ready to jump on anything with both feet. “I’m on it!” Actually, it might be a good idea to use physical exercise to blow off any pent-up steam that could be building up within you. Midweek, the Full Moon could bring a health situation to a head or something to do with your job or a pet. After the Full Moon is over, especially by the end of the week, these problems will dissipate or disappear. (Disappear is nice.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a popular week and you are more involved than usual with creative, artistic people, which you adore. You might hear from old friends or members of groups from the past because of Mercury retrograde. Meanwhile, you might be unsure of future goals. By early July, you’ll have a better idea of what you really want to do. Why not let those plans simmer on the back burner of your mind? Issues related to your kids or a romantic partner might be tough to deal with midweek. Fear not because after the Full Moon peaks, by Friday or the weekend, everything is copacetic. Note: At the beginning of this week, it will serve you well to be generous to others.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You are high viz. this week, making a great impression on everyone. In fact, you make such a great impression on bosses and important people, you might begin a romance with someone. It’s time to revisit old issues from the past with parents or bosses you haven’t seen for a while. When it comes to dealing with friends and groups, you’ll be enthusiastic, possibly even competitive. The Full Moon on Wednesday will challenge you because despite the demands of your job or your career, a family member will also make demands on your time. You’re caught in the middle! Cope as best you can, but don’t ignore career. Not this week.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You want to travel and do something different and exciting! Naturally, most of you cannot do this because of Covid restrictions. This means you have to figure out another way to get the feeling that you’re being adventurous and expanding your world. Not easy to do. But you can learn new things and study something new because that can be exciting. You might also have a formal dinner with your family or do something “different” that makes you feel turned on and energized by life. You might “go out for dinner” or “have a drink” in a classy way at home? All things are possible. The trick is to satisfy the urge in your mind, not your body. Guard against accidents midweek. Pay attention to everything you say and do.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Money, loans and mortgages as well as anything to do with shared property and the responsibilities for others is a primary focus for you. In fact, the Full Moon on Wednesday will bring something to do with these these areas to a head. Hopefully, afterwards, there will be some kind of resolution or a solution in sight. Whatever comes up in the beginning of the week could create financial tension for you. Fortunately, after the Full Moon peaks, problems that were intensifying, miraculously diminish or even disappear. Work to benefit others this week, especially before Wednesday’s Full Moon. What you give will come back to you multiplied.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The only Full Moon in your sign all year will peak on Wednesday this week. Problems seem to increase and intensify as the Full Moon approaches, and then inexplicably, after the Full Moon peaks, these same problems diminish or disappear. Some of these problems could be related to tension with partners and close friends; possibly something to do with an ex-partner or an old friend who is back on the scene? You might also have a dispute with someone about shared property or an inheritance. Whatever happens, keep the faith that by the end of the week, everything will mellow out and fall in place. Because it will.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This will be a busy week for you because you are motivated to work and to accomplish as much as you can. Admittedly, Mercury retrograde will create some hassles. Misplaced paperwork, confused communications, lost items, missed appointments and equipment problems are just some things that might dog your footsteps. Nevertheless, you are motivated and focused! Furthermore, relations with coworkers will be smooth and supportive. Having said that, be patient with partners and close friends because some tension here is likely. Problems will intensify before Wednesday’s Full Moon and then afterwards, they will diminish. You can look forward to this. Plus, your optimism is strong!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a playful, fun-loving week! Grab every opportunity to enjoy sports, social interactions with others (probably online) and fun activities with kids. You will also enjoy any chance to express your own creativity. Old flames are back in your world either literally or in your thoughts or in your dreams. This is due to Mercury retrograde. In fact, Mercury retrograde might encourage you to resurrect a previous creative project to either finish it or take it in a new direction. Despite your involvement with the arts and children, you are still keen to work hard. Do not let tension building up toward Wednesday’s Full Moon sideline you. Stay mellow.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a powerful week for you with lucky Jupiter in your sign. Furthermore, Mars makes you want to play and have fun! It will give you a competitive spirit in sports or any activity. Your focus on home and family will be primary, especially dealing with a parent. Many of you will be in touch with relatives you have not seen for a while. You will enjoy any kind of home entertaining or family gathering – whatever is safe and permitted. You will particularly enjoy making where you live more attractive. Wednesday’s Full Moon will make you feel pulled between the demands of your career versus the demands of home and family. This week you cannot ignore home and family and your personal life.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, May 16, to Saturday, May 22, 2021

All Signs

We’re in the fires of Mordor! Actually, it’s Mercury Retrograde, which means you will hear from old friends, ex-partners and old flames, which is either fun or horrifying. (I once tried to hide in the aisles of a video store.) Mercury is retrograde from May 28 – June 22; but the shadow period makes it a longer time: from May 16 – July 8. Zooks! That’s today! You can use this time to wrap up old business and make insightful observations about your past. Avoid buying ground transportation, computers and cell phones. This week, the Sun moves into Gemini giving each of us a new focus for the next four weeks. Everyone will feel more curious and restless – eager for something new and interesting to happen. (Geminis don’t do boredom.) It’s time to make a cat video!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your sign will feel this particular Mercury Retrograde more than the other signs because Mercury Retrograde is taking place in the part of your chart that is Mercury’s home. Expect car problems and transportation delays. (Flat tires, failed engines – something.) Get ready for missed appointments and confused communications. Oy! However, you will easily finish studying or writing something. Even though you’re caught up in delays and goofy mistakes, you will enjoy life because it is fast-paced and exciting! Plus, you will appreciate the beauty of your daily surroundings and feel more warmly connected to others. Gosh.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your focus on money, cash flow and movable possessions will be strong in the next four weeks. (“I can’t believe I own all this stuff.”) Something will prompt you to catalogue, organize and get rid of what you don’t need. You will also be more focused on money, cash flow and earnings. Although cheques in the mail will be late and other delays might be irksome, nevertheless, a moneymaking idea that you had in the past might be worth reconsideration? Why not run it up the flagpole to see if anyone salutes? You will attract money, goods and favours to you this month. Likewise, you will buy pretty things and antiques. (It’s who you are.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Oh my, the Sun, Venus and your ruler Mercury are in your sign for the next four weeks. (Venus moves into Cancer on June 2.) This means the whole world will experience a dazzling display of Gemini energy! Obviously, this is your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. It’s also why you will feel vigourous, energetic and enthused about life; while Venus will make you smooth, charming and diplomatic. Of course, Mercury Retrograde will attract friends and ex-partners back into your world. Mostly this is a good thing because it’s nice to have history with others. Enjoy this lovely boost of energy and attention!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your personal year is coming to an end; however, your new year is not yet ready to begin. This means the next four weeks are the perfect time to reflect. Look back over your shoulder. How well are you doing at the art of living? What changes do you want for your new year ahead? What goals do you want to make? After all, goals make future decision-making easier and they keep you on track and give you focus. This window of time will be great for doing research. Meanwhile, some of you are swept up in the throes of a secret, passionate, love affair. “Heathcliff!”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

The next four weeks will bring a welcome change into your life because you will be more popular and more involved with younger people as well as creative, artistic types. (Just what the doctor ordered.) You will enjoy talking to groups and friends online or in person. You’ll be excited about creating new goals for the future. It’s as if you’re waking up after hibernation. “Life! I remember what that was. Yes, it’s time to live again!” Mercury retrograde will attract old friends back into your world; plus, it will help you to accomplish old goals that you never achieved or finished. Relations with friends will be cozy; in fact, a friend could become a lover. “Masks off!”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Life will be increasingly thrilling during the next four weeks because this is the only time all year the Sun will be sitting at the very top of your chart. This means you will be thrust into the limelight! Everyone will notice you more than usual. But lo! This light is flattering. Everyone admires you especially parents, bosses and VIPs even if you don’t do anything special. (It’s smoke and mirrors.) This is why you will be asked to take on increased responsibilities, and others will come to you for your advice, especially about how to make something look better. Meanwhile, competition or increased physical activity will stir your blood! All hail the valiant Virgo!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The next four weeks will be like a breath of fresh air for you because you will do something to satisfy your urge for adventure, stimulation and a chance to learn something new! You will appreciate the beauty of art, architecture and the crafts of other cultures. Ideally, you would achieve these things through travel, but in these times of Covid restrictions, you probably cannot do this. This means you have to travel in other ways – through books and film. Talk to people from different cultures. You might hear from people far way because Mercury Retrograde will attract them to you. Do what you can to satisfy your love of beauty and learning. Explore new avenues in publishing, the media, medicine and the law.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You are an intense sign and in the next four weeks, your life will become even more intense. (“Her knuckles are very white.”) For starters, romance and love affairs will be passionate! The stuff of movies. This could be because ex-lovers are back on the scene. (Sigh.) Or you might meet someone new through an old friend who has returned to your world? Romantic passion aside, details about inheritances, shared property and insurance matters will be a strong focus. Fortunately, Mercury Retrograde will help you wrap up old business in these matters. You will also receive a gift, an inheritance or a favour from someone in the next month. Major bonus!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

For the next four weeks, the Sun and Mercury retrograde are sitting directly opposite your sign, which is a sure indication that you will hear from ex-partners and friends from your past. Plus, it will give you an opportunity for closure and a chance to learn more and catch up on old news. (Trade lies about the bad old days.) You might even learn more about your style of relating and your values with your closest one-to-one relationships. Meanwhile, your sex drive is amped because of the placement of Mars in your chart. However, this same placement can also indicate disputes about shared property, mortgages, inheritances, loans and debt. Overall picture: A fascinating time with others, especially people from your past.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You are hard-working. “No slackers allowed!” You like efficiency and you hate waste. These are some reasons you’ll be happier in the next four weeks. That’s because your main goal will be to get better organized. You want to work smart and be effective in everything you do. You will make lists and tackle old jobs that you’ve been meaning to get to for a while. Not only will you work to organize your world, you want to improve your health as well. “I want it all!” Coworkers will be supportive. Please note: Your ability to finish old jobs and work that has been dragging on and on will be stellar. You’ll wrap up this stuff in a flash. Show us your superpower!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You’re entering one of the most fun-filled months of the year! Mercury Retrograde will attract old flames from your past. Meanwhile, parents might hear from kids who wandered off the block. Your personal goal will be to enjoy yourself and express your creative urges. (“Look, ma! No hands!”) Social outings, the arts, sports, playful activities with kids and the freedom to be just who you are and express yourself without fear or hesitation will be the order of the day! In a perfect world, you would go away on a vacation. With current restrictions, you will have to have a vacation the best way you can make it happen. “We’re booking male dancers and ordering a case of wine.”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your focus on home, family and your personal and private life will be much stronger than usual in the next four weeks. Your interaction with a parent will be significant. Furthermore, you will be in touch with relatives you have not seen or heard from in a while. If they are safely in your bubble, they’ll be perched at your place and eating out of your fridge. Some of you have a strong urge now to redecorate and make your digs look prettier. A few velvet pillows on that new sofa? Fiery Mars will urge you to be active in sports and fun athletics, especially with your kids. Despite these busy distractions, you will value quiet moments to cocoon at home, as well. Nice.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, May 9 to Saturday, May 15, 2021

All Signs

We are approaching the second Mercury retrograde this year: May 28 – June 22. However, a shadow period extends this window while Mercury is slowing down and catching up; hence we have May 16 – July 8. Obviously, Mercury always moves forward; but relative to planet Earth, it “appears” to go backwards and when that occurs, silly, goofy errors and delays plague our lives. Aagh! Plus, these are poor times to buy “Mercury-related” items like computers, cell phones, cars, trucks and bikes OR to start new projects or businesses. But! Mercury Retrograde is a wonderful time to wrap up old business and be introspective. Consider: You will never again be as young as you are reading these words.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

For the next three months, you will be more contemplative. Something in your immediate environment will make you think of profound realizations like the fact that every moment, you are approaching the end of your life, which is why you have to decide what you should do with the time left to you. Sobering, indeed. What’s happening is that for the next three months, Jupiter, the planet of wisdom, will be in the part of your chart associated with spirituality. This will make you more empathetic and give you a deeper understanding of the world. If you don’t take the cloth, at least, take the free condiments.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your popularity will increase in the next three months. In fact, your friends will benefit you, which is why this is not the time to go it alone. Oh no. Enjoy interaction with friends and groups (online or in person) because they will play an important part in your life and help you attain your wishes for the future. It’s important to know that regarding your interactions with others, whatever you put out will come back to you in an even greater quantity. Quite literally, “What goes around, comes around” will really apply! This is fortunate because many of you will decide to work for social reform and make changes for the better. Bravo!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

“Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!” Oh my! is right because lucky Jupiter will be at the top of your chart for the next three months. (This happens only once every 12 years.) However, Jupiter will return to the top of your chart in Jan. 2022 for four months; and then return again for two months in November. So, consider this a preview of coming attractions. Jupiter at the top of your chart signifies promotions at work, public recognition, accolades, prizes and acknowledgements for your efforts. Very dazzling! If you don’t get a promotion, then you’ll have a chance to change your job or field of work to medicine, healing, the law, higher education or travel. It’s one of the best influences you can have!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

For the next three months, your desire to expand your world and increase your knowledge will be strong. Traditionally, this would be a time when you would travel or do something to enrich your life. Obviously, with the restrictions of Covid 19, you cannot do this. However, you can do something in a more abstract way to learn, study and expand your world by taking courses, reading and seeing the world online. Join a consciousness-raising group. You might explore opportunities in publishing, the media or something to do with higher education. One thing is certain: Something will expand your world. Yes!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Lucky moneybags Jupiter will slip into your Money House and stay for the next three months. Ka-ching! Specifically, this is the Money House that relates to the money and wealth that you share with others – money back from the government, shared property, inheritances, money from insurance, wealth that comes indirectly through someone else. This means that in the next three months, these specific areas will expand or be magnified in some way, which means you’re going to get gifts, goodies and favours from others! Oh yeah, keep your pockets open! Whatever happens will be powerful, fortunate changes in your life at this time.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Oh joy! This week, lucky Jupiter will move to sit opposite your sign for the next three months. This is a lovely benefit for you! It will improve your closest relationships and partnerships. In fact, this is such a wonderful benefit to partnerships, the next three months are the best times to get married in the last 12 years. (Fear not Jupiter will return to your House of Partnerships in Jan. 2022 for four months; and then again for two months in November.) This three-month window of time is also an excellent time to consult professionals. It will even improve your interactions with members of the general public. Basically, it improves all your relationships. Sweet!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The good news for your sign is that in the next three months, your health will improve. You will feel more vigourous, more lively and more optimistic! If you are recovering from an illness, this three-month window will assist the process. (Be careful about gaining weight.) In addition, this is an excellent time for any kind of work or duties that you do. In terms of your job, you can improve your job or improve your workspace, and even improve your relationships with your coworkers. If this doesn’t happen, then instead, you can get a better job! (Goodbye suckers!) You will also gain the esteem and admiration of your peers. (As a paw-note, many of you will also enjoy increased pleasure with pets.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Lucky you! Jupiter is all about optimism and pleasure. In the next three months, Jupiter will move into the part of your chart associated with vacations, fun, games, playful activities with kids, sports, the arts and your creative expression. All the fun stuff! (This includes financial speculation.) Because you will be more in touch with your creative self-expression, you will find the courage to be yourself! You will express yourself without fear or apology. Your relations with children will improve. Romance will blossom in a dazzling way. It will be a wonderful opportunity for personal growth and increased wisdom because you have the personal freedom to express who you are. (Buy something wonderful to wear!)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Lucky Jupiter is your ruler, which is why many Sagittarians are fortunate people. In the next three months, lucky Jupiter will move into the part of your chart symbolizing home and family. This means relations with family members will become warmer and happier. Family members will be more generous to each other. You will feel pleased about where you live. Some of you might move to something bigger and better. Others will renovate where you live to improve your home. This same blessing will also give you a chance to make money from real-estate speculation. If you rent, you will still improve where you live or rent something better. You will feel happier and content to be in your own skin. Bonus!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Jupiter is the planet associated with magnification, expansion and increase. It makes things bigger and better! In the next three months, it will move into a part of your chart relating to your daily habits, daily contacts and daily communications. Obviously, it will increase your contacts in the world either in person or on-line. It will stimulate your mind by bringing opportunities for advanced training or study. Many of you will read and write more than usual and with great enjoyment. Relations with siblings and relatives will improve and you might receive financial benefits from them. Ka-ching! In the bigger picture, your plans for the future will be more ambitious and your daily communications will be more positive. (We like!)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Good news! For the next three months, lucky, moneybags Jupiter will sit in your House of Money and Earnings, which means you have an opportunity to get richer and boost your earnings in some way. Definitely! You might earn more money or get a better paying job; or you might increase your assets, even if you have to buy them. (Nevertheless, you will feel richer.) To put a finer point on it, Jupiter will increase whatever it is you most value. Take a real look at your overall goals to see what you really must have in order to achieve them. Jupiter will help you do this. It will increase the dimension of your life that is most important to you.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Well, well, well. Lucky Jupiter is going to enter your sign and stay there for the next three months. (It does this once every 12 years, which means that in your adult life you experience this maybe five times?) Usually, it will stay in your sign for one year. However, after being in your sign for three months this year, it will return in Jan. 2022 for four months; and then return again for two months in November. This signifies the beginning of a new major cycle of growth in your life. It will be a time of learning and gaining new experiences. You will easily attract people to you who are beneficial and of course, it will be a time that is fortunate for you in personal terms. Jupiter will give you divine protection. Sweet!

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, May 2, to Saturday, May 8 2021

All Signs

This week begins with tough love because on Monday, relationships with parents and bosses are strained. We are forced to deal with balancing what “we want to do” versus what “we should do.” (I hate that.) Self- gratification versus duties and responsibilities. Oy! Things will be depressing and restrictive for many. News in the media will be bleak and we will feel the weight of the world on our shoulders. Fortunately, the rest of the week gets better and better and by Thursday, relationships are hot and sexy! And by Saturday, everyone wants to enjoy the company of old faces! “Natasha!” “Boris!” (“Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.”)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your emphasis on money, cash flow and earnings continues to be strong this week. It’s important for you to know that things are better than they actually look. You will attract money and goods to you, so keep the faith. Having said that, during the beginning of the week, you will be disappointed because you might be turned down or you might hear depressing news that impacts your earnings and spending power. Arrrg. Nevertheless, stay strong because as the week unfolds, your financial scene looks better! Therefore, cope as best you can with the chaos and increased activity on the home front. It is what it is. People will help and the cash will come. “Friendship is the bread of life but money is the honey.”

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You continue to be empowered because it’s your turn to replenish yourself for the rest of the year. You are also attracting favours, gifts and resources to you. Admittedly, this week starts out tough. You might feel discouraged. You might wish you didn’t have to work or deal with certain people. Issues with parents and bosses will be restrictive. But lo! What news from yonder modem breaks? As your week unfolds (not unravels), your mood transforms into feelings of passion and excitement. Romance will be promising! The arts will appeal! By the end of the week, you will be happier enjoying the company of others. Websites must be scoured! Money must be spent!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your ruler Mercury enters your sign on Monday, which will make you more talkative and able to put a great deal of yourself into whatever you have to say. Your mind will be busy jumping from topic to topic and you will seek new, fresh experiences! Normally, Mercury is in your sign for about two weeks once a year. However, this time, Mercury will be in your sign for 11 weeks! (Whaaat?) Yes! Until Sunday July 11. The reason for this is that Mercury is going to go retrograde in your sign from May 16 to July 8. (The last time this happened was six years ago in 2015.) This is a major deal! Don’t be discouraged at the beginning of the week when life feels tough because this week gets easier and easier as it unfolds.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your popularity with others and your interaction with groups continues to be strong; nevertheless, someone will oppose you at the beginning of the week. Whatever happens might make you feel discouraged to the point of even changing your future goals. Don’t let this get you down because these difficulties and restrictions will disappear. In fact, someone, perhaps someone creative, artistic or attractive will make things better for you. In some cases, a friend will become a lover. But all of you will feel relieved and happier because of this person. Meanwhile, you are strong and vigourous because fiery Mars is in your sign. “I can do this!”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You continue to garner the admiration of others because the Sun is still at the top of your chart along with Venus, which is a very favourable influence! Nevertheless, at the beginning of the week, you might be slammed by harsh news or have difficulty dealing with a parent or a boss. This might curtail your plans or create problems. Definitely a bummer. The thing to know is that this is the only tough time this week. Once you deal with this, things will get better and better, and ironically, by the end of the week, your reputation will shine! People will think so highly of you that some of you will begin a romance with your boss or someone “important.”. As for Monday? “Even a hurricane only lasts for a day.”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a powerful time because five planets are cresting the top of your chart. You have a take-charge style dealing with others; and you’re eager to study and expand your horizons and share your idea as best you can in these times of Covid restrictions. Nevertheless, as the week begins, rules and regulations or legal matters (possibly something medical) will create difficulties or disappointments. The good news is that once you get over this initial hump, your week gets better and better. Romance with someone different might blossom. You will also have an increasing enjoyment of other cultures and their arts and crafts because you have a stronger appreciation of beauty.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

I recently read that Bruce Lee said, “Don’t speak negatively about yourself even as a joke. Your body doesn’t know the difference. Words are energy and cast spells, that’s why it’s called spelling.” Wise words! Meanwhile, you want to improve yourself; and in your desire to do so, you might be self-critical. Don’t be discouraged about your shortcomings. Cut yourself some slack. Be kind to yourself and remember that you’re doing your best – for today. This week begins with discouraging news about finances, taxes, debt or shared property. But you will handle this! As the week progresses, gifts, goodies and favours will come to you. A fabulous change!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Many of you need more sleep this week and are focused on your closest one-to-one relationships because the Sun is opposite your sign. This happens once a year and when it does, it offers you a chance to gain greater insight into your style of relating to others. However, at the beginning of the week, you might clash with a parent or a boss. You won’t get the approval or permission you want. Your plans might be dashed. You will be discouraged. Fortunately, these feelings lessen to the point that later in the week, relations with others are excellent! This week is a true transformation in that sense. For some of you, a new, passionate romance will begin.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You still want to get better organized, become healthier and work as efficiently as possible. Noble goals! However, this Sunday or Monday, some kind of barrier might hold you back from doing what you want to do. Relations with authority figures will be testy. In addition, your energy will be low and you will feel depressed about the state of the world. More than any other sign, sometimes you need to take a news fast or a break from the media because it’s important for you to maintain your optimism about life. Speaking of which, this week gets better and by the end of the week, everything will fall in place for you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Although this is a lighthearted time for you, at the beginning of this week, something will discourage you. It could be difficulty dealing with your kids, or a challenge to your plans for a social event or perhaps it is related to sports. For some of you, this challenge could be a disappointment with a romantic relationship. None of this sounds like fun. The important thing to know is your situation will improve rapidly this week. Trust me. Whatever difficulties you encounter at the beginning of the week soon will be history. By the end of the week, romantic relationships, relations with your kids and social plans will be exciting and promising!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your relationship with a parent or relations with your family will be challenging at the beginning of this week. This is almost a certainty. Maybe someone has put their foot down or shut down your ideas, which makes you feel blocked or restricted in some way? Perhaps a home project is overwhelming? Two things are going to turn this situation around for you. The placement of Mars right now gives you lots of energy to work hard him, which means you will accomplish a lot this week. Furthermore, a Venus influence will greatly ameliorate your difficulties at home and in fact, redecorating plans, real-estate plans and relations with family members will be fine! (Whew!)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might be worried about something this week to the point that you feel victimized. “Why me?” This is because something in your daily world will discourage you or make you feel shut out or blocked. Naturally, this will be discouraging. In truth, everyone feels a challenge at the beginning of this week. You are not alone. Don’t fall into worry mode because this difficulty is brief. Already by Thursday, things look much better! And by the weekend, you’re laughing! Continue with your ideas to improve where you live with DIY projects and home repairs. Mars will guarantee fun times with others, especially with romance and sports. It’s all good.

Weekly HoroscopeSunday, March 28 to Saturday, April 3 2021

All Signs

Oh my, April is arriving in style! This week Mercury will move into Aries to join the Sun and Venus already in Aries to create an imposing fiery trio! Everyone will be direct and to the point. Quick and fast. In and out. “Finito!” “Vamonos!” Meanwhile, fiery Mars in Gemini continues to stoke our desire to talk, explain, listen, whisper and relish gossip. (“I heard she got the house, the car and the plane and he kept the cabin at Silverstar?”) The slower moving planets are all where we left them. This means that overall, this will be a high-energy week that is fast-paced and definitely, a bit competitive. (My partner and I laugh about how competitive we are. But I laugh more.)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a powerful week for you! The Sun, Mercury and Venus are all in your sign. Naturally, the Sun will give you energy and a chance to replenish yourself for the rest of the year. Mercury will encourage you to express your POV to everyone. Your mind will be busy; you will be talkative; and you will want to get out and hustle! (And travel, if you can.) Fortunately, Venus in your sign will soften some of this cheeky energy and help you to be charming and diplomatic with everyone. Your warmth and friendliness will melt those who are close to you. Incidentally, this is an excellent week to buy wardrobe goodies. (Check the Moon Alert.) Your ruler Mars will make you unusually persuasive and heighten your desire to communicate verbally, by mail, or by smoke signals.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

“May you live in interesting times” was a Chinese curse. This week will be interesting but you need not be worried. Nevertheless, the powerful energy from the Aries trio (see All Signs above) will stir up hidden things for you. On the upside, it will promote your ability to research and sleuth out information and hidden answers. It will also attract secret love affairs to you. However, it can stir up suppressed psychological energies regarding unresolved problems in relationships. If this energy surfaces, be aware of your behaviour. In particular, you might be more aggressive than usual about financial matters, cash flow or your possessions. (Twenty years from now, will this matter?) Keep things in perspective – stay chill.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A lovely, friendly week ahead! You’re in top form! (With fiery Mars in your sign who would expect less?) Do remember that this energy from Mars in your sign, (which lasts about six weeks) can happen only once every two years. This means now is your chance to show the world what you can do! Meanwhile, all this fiery energy from the Aries trio mentioned in All Signs above, will promote your interaction with friends and groups. Your exchanges with younger people and artistic, creative people will prompt you to think differently about your future. You might decide to reach for more exciting possibilities? You might want to change your appearance? Very likely, you will realize life isn’t a rehearsal – this is the real thing. Go for baroque!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a powerful time because that trio of Aries energy that I mentioned in All Signs above is sitting at the very top of your chart! All hail, Caesar! You make a great impression on others now. Your conversations with others will be well timed and to the point. In fact, you will schmooze with bosses and VIPs so well, a flirtation might begin with someone? Actually, this is more likely than you think because the influence of Mars will encourage a secret love affair. (You cheeky devil.) Since this is a strong influence, and we all know you love an adoring peanut gallery – be mindful that it would be foolish to threaten a permanent relationship with a mere bonbon.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your urge to travel and do something to expand your horizons is stronger than ever this week. This is because now there is a trio of Aries energy in your fellow Fire Sign encouraging you to explore new avenues in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. You will be keen to take courses and learn more. Obviously, as part of this desire to expand your world, travel would be a compelling choice. Who knows? Vaccines might permit this – but maybe not. Meanwhile, fiery Mars continues to encourage some kind of competitive situation in a group (perhaps physical sports?) Or with a friend. Do you the know tune to “Anything you can do I can do better?”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your ambition is still strong! Small wonder because Mars at the top of your chart arouses your ambition for almost two months. It’s important to know that this influence can happen only once every two years. That’s why you might as well use this energy. If you want to boldly go where no man has gone before, now is the time! Meanwhile, this trio of Aries energy that I mention in All Signs above will heighten your focus on taxes, debt, shared property and even differing values with someone else. It will also heighten your interest in sex. You will be more passionate than usual. Not only that, you will attract money to you. (Now that’s a curious combo.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

In All Signs above, I mention a strong planetary trio of Aries energy. For your sign, this is taking place directly opposite you! This means your awareness of partners, spouses and close friends will be more acute and more accurate. Obviously, you will learn something from this. (And why wouldn’t you because happy relationships support a happy life.) Mercury will encourage discussions, while Venus will encourage warmth and mutual understanding. This is important because your sign, more than any other sign in the zodiac, likes to have someone else sitting on the other side of your teeter-totter. You’re not a loner.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This will be a productive week for you because this high-energy trio of Aries planets (see All Signs above) will encourage you to work harder than ever before. In fact, your desire to get organized and work smart will be paramount. You will also apply this same determined energy to improve your health. You will like this drive because Aries and Scorpio are very similar signs. In fact, until Pluto was discovered in 1930, they shared the same ruler Mars. You are both proactive and willing to fight for what you want. The difference is that Aries goes for immediate gratification – while you bide your time, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. (Yikes!)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a delightful and exciting week for you because that trio of Aries energy that I mention in All Signs (see above) takes place in your fellow Fire Sign, which of course, offers you tremendous support – physically, psychologically and even in the everyday events of your life. (“Elementary, my dear Watson.”) This is why things will flow more easily for you right now. It’s also why you feel playful, prankish and ready for fun! If possible, this is the perfect time for a vacation. It’s also a wonderful time to express your creative energy and to enjoy rewarding activities with kids. In fact, all fun plans including social encounters with others will appeal. This week, you’re a winner!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your focus on home, family and your private life has increased even more so this week because now, a trio of planets will channel your energy in that direction. For some, this will mean increased involvement with a parent. For others, it will mean you want to cocoon more and relax at home or “hide.” Many of you will use this energy to do home repairs or redecorating projects and certainly, to entertain (specially to show off what you have done). Whatever your plans, the placement of Mars will give you the energy to follow through on your ideas. This is definitely a productive week for you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your pace has been accelerating for the last few weeks and this week, it will accelerate even more. Oh yes, fasten your seatbelts! In part, this is because you are encountering new ideas, new faces, new places and learning new things, which makes life stimulating! (You’re certainly not sitting around getting dusty.) But what is particularly enriching is that while all this increased stimulation is taking place, it also brings a heightened awareness to your daily world making you see the beauty of everything around you – including the people close to you. How illuminating! This is valuable knowledge.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

No matter what is happening in your life, this week you will definitely be focused on money, earnings and cash flow as well as something to do with your possessions. For starters, many of you are thinking about moneymaking ideas more than usual. Plus, you will attract money to you in addition to which you will spend money on beautiful things for yourself and your loved ones. It will feel good to enhance your self-image – and why not? Love yourself. Love how you look. You only get one time around at this, right? Meanwhile, increased chaos and activity on the home scene are unavoidable. This could be visiting guests, renovations, repairs – whatever. Cope as best you can.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, March 7 to Saturday, March 13, 2021

All Signs

Neptune is the planet of dreams, inspiration and imagination as well as illusion, confusion and deceit. Neptune takes 165 years to travel through all 12 signs, and right now it is in Pisces from 2012 to 2025. (When it was last in Pisces from 1847 to 1861, photography came into its own to the chagrin of outlaws in the Wild West.) This week, the Sun lines up with Neptune, which happens once a year. A few days later, the Moon lines up with Neptune, which happens once a month. A double whammy of selflessness and self-deception. “I’d walk through fire for my best friend. Well, not fire – that would be dangerous. But a super humid room…. but not too humid because, you know .. my hair.”

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You get the biggest hit of this fuzzy Neptunian action because it’s all taking place where Neptune lives in your chart. This might make you more aware of childhood behaviour patterns from your past. Now that you see them, you can see how inappropriate they are. You also might see that you’re giving out mixed messages to people: “Come close!” “I need to be alone.” “Come close!” “Go away.” You might also feel that you need to be a bit sacrificial and take one for the team, or work for someone else’s benefit. Actually, this could be rewarding because we get self-respect and self-love by helping others. (Of course, you have to keep score.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a tricky week for dealing with friends and members of groups because you’re inclined to idealize someone and expect a lot from them. (Especially if you admire them.) Unfortunately, when you put someone up on a pedestal, they are bound to disappoint you. Furthermore, if you had expectations that you didn’t express – this is a guarantee for disappointment. When we feel idealistic about someone, we think they should be able to read our minds. Somehow “they should know.” (Ha!) But that’s not realistic, is it? Meanwhile, on the upside, you might make ambitious goals for the future this week. “Follow your bliss!”

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a tricky week because this illusory Neptunian influence is taking place at the top of your chart, which could create confusion with parents, bosses, teachers and VIPs – even the police. You might feel disappointed with someone you admire because you expected more, or you feel let down or unnoticed. Possibly, you feel that you’re letting yourself down because you have these high goals and now you can’t achieve them? Give yourself credit for what you are doing. This is a tough year for so many. If you are coping and taking the time to be aware of the needs of others as well as your own – congratulations!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your idealism is aroused this week – without question. For many, it will equate with philosophical ideals or something to do with religion or how to address society and the world community in a meaningful way? (Heady stuff.) In a more personal way, you might develop a crush on someone who is “different.” You might also become more involved with wanting to help people in another culture, people who are less fortunate than you. Meanwhile, be careful about confusion when dealing with the law this week. Stay realistic and if you can’t be honest, then say nothing. Don’t lie because this will get you in even deeper and create further regrets. You will find it gratifying to learn something new. (Did you know that baby porcupines are called “porcupettes?”)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This week as both the Sun and the Moon line up with Neptune, you might face a situation where your values are at odds with the values of someone else. This is a sobering reality, especially if this person is dear to you. This is something you have to live with because you can’t change other people’s values – only they can. There might also be confusion about inheritances, shared property, taxes, debt or how to spend a certain amount of money or share something. We have different ideas about what generosity means. Keep in mind that Leos are very generous. They will even borrow money to lend it to someone. Very few would do this.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your closest relationships – spouse, partner or dear friend, could be the source of some confusion and disappointment for you this week. In all likelihood, you might be expecting too much from this person? Or perhaps you have not expressed your expectations? (After all, they can’t read your mind.) Misunderstandings and confused communications will be classic. On the upside, you might also have a mind-meld with someone because your Spidey sense is highly developed now when it comes to dealing with others. So, this situation could go either way. You might feel disappointed or disillusioned or you might feel a true, almost spiritual bond with someone.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The Neptunian influence that is present this week will introduce tendencies to be selfless and altruistic and to be willing to work for others without reward and even without recognition. (This is kinda tough to do unless you have a Mother Teresa style.) Nevertheless, it’s possible. Therefore, if you find yourself in a situation where you are giving more and going more than halfway to help someone else – just suck it up. It’s par for the course right now. It’s okay, you’re not being a martyr or a fool. This is an influence that can permeate your job or something to do with your health or even your relationship with a pet. “It’s a joy to labour for those you love.”

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The conjunction of the Sun and the Moon with Neptune will create number of possibilities for you this week. One is it could relate to romance. You might be head over heels in love with someone and expecting a fairytale. If this doesn’t happen, you might be disappointed. Kierkegaard said, “The most painful state is remembering the future.” Neptune triggers disillusionment. You might also feel disappointed with your kids. Or you might feel disappointed with your own creative output or lack of it. However, on the upside you might be completely open to your muse and be in touch with your artistic expression. This Neptune influence can create many possibilities.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The area where you might have the greatest misunderstandings this week will be with home and family. Conversations with a parent might be like two ships passing in the night. Relatives might not understand what you’re trying to do or what is important to you? Or perhaps someone in the family accuses you of misunderstanding them? This could lead to disappointment. Or perhaps this influence will inspire you to be the best that you can possibly be for a family member? You want to do whatever you can within your power to help them or make their life happier and easier. You might even use this same influence to redecorate or create more beauty in your home. It can manifest in many ways.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Please make an effort to be as clear as possible in your dealings and communications with your everyday world this week to avoid serious misunderstandings that might occur. In fact, you might encounter someone who misleads you. At its worst, you might even doubt your own ideas and thoughts? However, you might also pursue studies, conversations and ideas about metaphysics, mystical subjects, karma and reincarnation because you want to understand how things work. Neptune can create illusion but it can also put you in touch with your highest ideals. It’s a mixed bag.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This week it’s important for you to keep your eyes open because the Neptunian influence that I mention in All Signs above can affect your assets, your wealth, your money and your cash flow. Think twice before you give something away. Make sure you know what you’re doing with how you handle your possessions and your wealth this week. Above all, you don’t want to have regrets later about what you do now. Likewise, be careful about sudden splurges of extravagance. If you are tempted to blow your money, keep your receipts – and the box. Things might not be as they appear. The worst-case scenario is that you are even being deceived in some way. (Yikes!)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Well, all this Neptunian influence is happening right before your very eyes because the Sun is lining up with Neptune in Pisces; and this week, the Moon will be in Pisces and it too, will line up with Neptune. In addition to which, fair Venus is also in Pisces. Yes, it’s all about you! You might experience two extremes of these influences or both. You might feel turned on by ideals, dreams and the love of beauty to the point that it feels spiritual and that you are in touch with the Divine. Alternatively, you might feel disappointed, disillusioned and discouraged because life isn’t turning out how you had hoped it would. Actually, both these extremes are an illusion. Do not give into either one. If your head is in the clouds, make sure your feet are on the ground. Trust to your own staying power because within a matter of weeks, everything will change.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, February 28 to March 6, 2021

All Signs

This week fiery Mars enters Gemini to stay until April 23. (That’s seven weeks!) Mars is big-time energy. It activates different parts of our charts to stimulate different areas of our lives. It also affects us personally in terms of our physical and emotional energy. Read your sign (as well as your Rising Sign if you know it) to find out how this blast of energy will affect you. Einstein discovered a formula for the relationship between energy and mass. Apparently, when mass is in pajamas, the level of energy is diminished. It is practically inert in the presence of pizza with pepperoni, mushroom with extra cheese. (No anchovies.)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Holy cannelloni! You’re entering a super, turbocharged seven weeks! This is because Mars will be in the part of your chart that affects your everyday activities. The pace of your days will accelerate. You face a jampacked schedule full of errands, tasks, short trips and everyday hustle and bustle. Not only will Mars energize the activity of your days, it will affect your style of talking to others, especially relatives, siblings and neighbours. You want to express your ideas! You will say what you mean and mean what you say! In addition, many of you will write, study and read more than usual. Busy you!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You are the financial wizard of the zodiac. (You practically mint money in your backyard.) Mars will now activate your primary Money House for the next seven weeks, which is why you will identify with your wealth and possessions so much. You will feel like you are what you own. Of course, this is silly, (admittedly you are your car.) Hence you might have disputes about the ownership of something. You might also be excited about a special purchase. Your drive to earn money and act on your moneymaking ideas will be strong! You also might find yourself defending your values to someone. (That’s Mars.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Hello world! For the first time in two years, fiery Mars will be in your sign for seven weeks. On the upside, this will boost your energy. You’ll be like Popeye after a can of spinach. “I yam what I yam!” Not only will Mars increase your energy, it will make you more competitive and aggressive when dealing with others. You’ll be more of a fighter for your own rights than usual. If attacked, you will respond! However, this supercharged physical energy will help you to get lots of work done. Be careful you don’t come on too strong with others. Even though this is your chance to show the world what you can do – don’t be pushy. Make nice with people.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Not since the spring of 2019, have you felt what you’re going to feel for the next seven weeks. This is because the strong energy of Mars will be “hiding” in your chart. This is not what Mars likes to do. Mars wants to lead the charge into battle! This means you might feel frustrates and irritable. When you try to create a good impression on someone, something might backfire, and you find yourself being your own worst enemy. (Eeek!) What’s happening is that Mars is revealing the self-defeating acts that you do (we all do). Suddenly they’re so obvious! If you want to accuse someone of something, the truth is you’re actually in confrontation with yourself. On the upside, this offers a valuable learning curve about your hidden impulses and tendencies.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Mars will be in the part of your chart that affects your friendships and groups. This brings a mixed blessing. On the upside, it will energize you and make you take a leadership role. However, it could make you so bossy, your intentions will backfire. The solution is to coordinate your needs with the needs of others. Look for a win-win solution. You will also be super competitive, which is good if you’re physically active in sports. Not so good in meetings, perhaps. (Zoom or in person.) One positive influence is Mars will stimulate your desire to pursue your goals. Ironically, you will more easily achieve these goals by working with others.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Mars is often a mixed blessing for some signs but for you, it will be a winning thing because for the next seven weeks, Mars will travel across the top of your chart, arousing your ambition more than it’s been pumped for about years. Once you identify a project, you will work extremely hard to achieve your aims. You will want to be independent in whatever you do; and of course, you will want credit. Ideally, you should be your own boss. (Note: conflict with employers, bosses and parents is likely.) The key to your success is to remember your objective. Maybe you will achieve your objective by working better with others? Consider this. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For the next seven weeks, Mars will stimulate your desire to travel. However, most people cannot travel due to Covid restrictions (even though a glance at any street, highway or airport will show you that people are travelling). You will have to be creative. What is really driving you, is your desire for adventure and a chance to learn something new. You want to see new places, new faces and learn new things! How can you do this without physically travelling? Start by getting excited with creative, intellectual work. Do whatever you can to expand your mind. Many will be more involved with the law or something to do with medicine. Publishing and the media will also be activated. Expect an exciting time ahead!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

In the next seven weeks, you might find yourself in a dispute with someone about shared property, inheritances or anything to do with joint resources, particularly money. (Perhaps how to spend a certain amount of money?) This conflict might be about the wealth of someone else, especially a partner. Or perhaps you’re attracted to someone who has a powerful effect upon you and causes you to change? This could be due to a disagreement about values? Meanwhile, Mars will boost your sex drive and make you very passionate. This is a fact. One thing is certain: as you assert yourself in the world, you might discover you have to let go of old ways of doing things and try something new.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

For the first time in two years, fiery Mars will be opposite your sign for the next seven weeks. This means you will have to be more patient with partners, spouses and close friends. Mars opposite your sign tends to make you annoyed with others. (That’s because they probably are.) But hey, your reaction or response is within your control, right? To save yourself a lot of grief, resist the urge to just react. Instead, take a beat and process what you’re thinking. What do you want to achieve? Be clear about this and then respond. (Lose the knee-jerk reaction.) For example, if someone annoys you, and you react — this escalates things and you have a rotten evening. Do you want to have a rotten evening? No, you don’t. Your call. Simple.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Lucky you! Although the energy of Mars is creating disputes and problems for many people; for your sign, Mars will be useful to you in the next seven weeks, because it will help you to work hard and get things done. You’ll be willing to put aside today’s pleasure for today’s work. (Admirable!) Admittedly, many of you will work for the benefit of someone else but this is something that has to be done. Look for ways to work independently because you will not feel like a team player. Do be careful of health hazards, infections, fevers and accidents because Mars can trigger impulsive, reckless behaviour. Having said this, you will take pride in what you accomplish in the weeks ahead.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

For the most part, because fiery Mars will be in your fellow Air sign for in the next seven weeks, things will be good for you! Mars will make you feel confident, energized, decisive and willing to work. Nevertheless, it might stir up conflict with your kids. If so, remember who the adult is. The main influence that you will feel is that you want the freedom to be yourself and express yourself. You will want to do your own thing to an almost reckless degree. Romance will be hot and sexy! You’ll be aggressive in sports and keen to seek out fun diversions. And of course, you will want to play!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

It’s been two years since Mars travelled across the bottom of your chart. In one way, this will stir up a lot of deep, unconscious energy and perhaps trigger behaviour patterns from your past. (If you find yourself behaving compulsively and inappropriately – this is what’s happening.) Meanwhile, you can definitely expect increased activity, and even chaos, on the home front. Residential moves, redecorating projects as well as conflict with family members are some reasons for all this hubbub. Meanwhile, professionally speaking, someone might block your efforts to get ahead. Methinks you might be wise to keep a low profile – and keep your eyes open.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, February 7, to Saturday, February 13, 2021

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This heavy emphasis on Aquarius promotes interaction with friends and group activities – probably online. You’ll be active on Facebook and social media (or however you are in contact with friends and groups at this time). Friends from the past are back in the picture. The bottom line is for you to think about the friends that you have in your life. Are these quality people? Do they have your back? Is your life enriched or happier because of them? Life is too short to waste time on those who don’t deserve you. You’re quality goods!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This mosh pit of wild, Aquarian energy is taking place at the top of your chart, which means this is the culmination of a 30-year cycle, as well as a 12-year cycle. It’s a time when your cherished dreams are coming true and you are being noticed for your accomplishments. More than that, you are proud of your accomplishments! Because of the New Moon taking place at the top of your chart, this a good week to think or your life direction in general. Where do you want to be five years from now? Two years from now? One year from now? What do you have to do today to start to move in that direction? Ideas?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

All this wild and crazy energy taking place in Aquarius means six events are doing their thing in the element of Air. And you are an Air sign! Connect the dots! You have a VIP pass to whatever you want to do, especially related to publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education or further training. It’s an excellent time to think about future travel plans, whenever this will be a viable opportunity (and that day will come, most certainly). Meanwhile, you don’t want to stand in place getting dusty. You’re eager to learn and expand your world! What can you do that will be adventurous and stimulating?

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This week you’re focused on issues related to shared wealth and the wealth and resources of your partner or another party. This might include your involvement with an inheritance or something to do with insurance issues, taxes and debt. (Benjamin Franklin said the only thing we can be sure of is taxes, death and doing banking on cell phones.) Mercury retrograde will help you wrap up old business related to these areas. This is a benefit for you! Venus and Jupiter will favour you financially and attract gifts, goodies and favours from others to you. Another benefit for you! You wanted more?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This gaggle of planets in Aquarius is happening opposite your sign, which means you are focused on partners and close friends. You might also be dealing with members of the general public more than usual. Mercury retrograde will attract ex-partners back into your world in person or in your memory. You’ll be thinking about these people more than usual. The good news is that this will give you greater objectivity and a chance to learn more about how you relate to those who are closest to you. Meanwhile Venus and Jupiter will promote good feelings! They will encourage you to express your affection and make your feelings clear to those who are closest to you. It’s all good.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You are a doer. You are an Earth sign who likes to be efficient, organized, alphabetized and colour-coded. (Of course, perfection doesn’t exist.) Ironically, this heavy emphasis in Aquarius (six planets!) will make you want to be better organized in every aspect of your life. Yay! You want to be on top of things at work; you want to be healthier; and you want to be timely in how you do things, especially with a pet. Admittedly, Mercury retrograde will create delays and goofy mistakes – but nothing serious. The upshot is that it’s time for you to set some goals about what you want for yourself, especially in terms of your work in the next two years. Is it time to update your resume?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

All of this Aquarian activity taking place this week (see All Signs above) bodes well for you because these six planetary influences are happening in Air, and you are an Air sign. It’s as if the universe is offering you “direct support.” Such a blessing! Furthermore, this gaggle of planets is sitting in the part of your chart related to romance, parties, vacations, creative activities, sports and children – all that fun stuff! So, in a nutshell, this week, you want to have fun! Old flames are back in your world. People will reach out to you in person or online through social media or zoom because they want to share time with you. Children will be a source of joy! You will give yourself permission to be exactly who you are. No need to pretend.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

As you see in All Signs, there’s a lot going on the sign of Aquarius: The Sun, the New Moon, Mercury retrograde, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn. All of this is happening at the bottom of your chart activating everything to do with home, family and your private life. (This includes your interactions with parents.) In broad terms – it’s everything to do with home and where you live now, and where you might live in the future; plus, everything to do with family members and your relationships to them. Mercury retrograde will put you in touch with relatives you haven’t seen for a while either in person, on social media or even as a memory? Venus will encourage you to redecorate and entertain your family bubble. Jupiter and Saturn will make you think about real estate and where you live.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a fast-paced time because this gaggle of planets mentioned in All Signs above is occurring in a part of your chart that affects your daily activity, your daily thoughts, your daily contacts and your daily habits. Naturally, Mercury retrograde will create snafus in these areas, which means you can expect transportation problems, mixed-up communications and misplaced items as well hearing from siblings, relatives and neighbours you haven’t seen for a while. However, all this will stimulate your mind! You will want to communicate to others! You might want to study and write more. Start making new plans that will affect your daily world.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Because this is the year that you are going to get richer, who is surprised that the planetary energy of six configurations (see All Signs above) is taking place in your Money House? Naturally! Admittedly, Mercury retrograde will slow things down and cheques in the mail will be late. However, Mercury retrograde will also give you an opportunity to wrap up old business and see old contacts that might boost your income or promote your moneymaking ideas. Meanwhile, Venus and Jupiter will attract money to you. If not money, then gifts, goodies from others and favours. Of course, fiery Mars wants you to play! It will energize your involvement in sports and any kind of social diversions that you are able to explore in these pandemic times.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Well, it’s all about you, dear Aquarius. Ex-partners and friends from the past are back in your world. Meanwhile, a variety of opportunities are coming your way because Venus and Jupiter in your sign and this attracts them to you! You have a strong desire to express your ideas to others, which is a good thing because people want to hear what you have to say. This is an unusual time for you because you are virtually setting out on a new 30-year journey, as well as a new 12-year journey (two separate influences). The bottom line is that you are going to grow and transform who you are and become a more evolved person. (You always knew that life was more than a dress rehearsal.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is an unusual time for you because the Sun, the New Moon, Mercury retrograde, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn are all “hiding” in your chart. (There is plenty of room.) This means you are more in touch with your subconscious mind and how it affects you and directs your activities and influences your decisions. Oh yes! Important to know! Memories of childhood behaviour patterns will appear. You’re happy to be low key and perhaps do research. You will be giving in your romantic relationships. (Some are having a secret affair.) Overall, you are exploring your spiritual world, and starting to wonder where this might take you. (If you believe in fairies clap your hands!)

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, January 31, to February 6, 2021

( I am sorry this is being posted on Tuesday instead of Sunday)

All Signs

It’s the end of January 2021. As we sail into this new year, with a sense of uncertainty, let’s recap where we’ve come from and where we’re headed. Broad strokes are helpful information. Once you get a sense of the big picture, you can start to narrow things down in order to make daily decisions. After all, if you’re headed into winter, you get warm clothes. If you’re going to the beach, your take a swimsuit. These are bare basics, but bare basics are essential to know. (Yes, I do see the connection between bare basics and swimsuit. And yes, a sheep in a swimsuit is a Lamb Bikini.)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

When you look over your shoulder, you see that after giving up a lot in the mid-90s, around 1996-97, you began to reinvent yourself. Around 2003, you started to put down roots; and by 2008, you were busting your buns for several years to show the world what you could do. Sure enough, by 2010-11, you got recognition! (Nevertheless, that was when relationships might have ended.) By 2018, your success was shining and cherished dreams came true! Now you need to balance working for others with working for yourself. In about two years, you will start downsizing to get rid of what you no longer need because by 2026, it will be a new world!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This month you’re coming on like gangbusters because fiery Mars is in your sign giving you energy to take charge and get things done. From 1999 to 2005, you redefined who you were in the world. And from 2003 to 2005, there was lots of change. By 2010, you worked hard and by 2012, you received recognition for your efforts. Relationships were strained from 2012 to 2015, which is why many of you had to get along with less during 2015 to 2018. But you survived. In fact, now is your time of harvest! Oh yes! The chickens have come home to roost. Expect promotions, accolades and admiration this year, followed by increased popularity in 2022.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Around the turn of the century, you gave up people, places and possessions. This set you off on a new journey around 2001. Between 2005-08, job changes and residential moves kept you hopping. Happily, by 2008-09, you had a home base you could rely on. You were busting your buns from 2012 to 2015 to prove your worth to others. This is why 2015-16 was an eventful time. It marked a major shift because after that, your focus became more ambitious. Now you need to get performance ready for 2023. This is when you will shine! Prepare for this time by taking courses. Perhaps you can travel? Learn new technology. Get savvy — to get ready!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

If you look back, you can see that you virtually reinvented yourself from 2003 to 2010. Who you were in 2010-11 is very different from who you were in 2001-02. Am I right? Recently, since 2018, partnerships have been challenging. Many of you have ended relationships, which is why you are forced to get along with less this year. Fear not, as you learn to stand on your own two feet, you’re becoming more independent. This is important because in 2023, you will enter a two-year window where you will prepare yourself for your time of harvest, which will be in 2026. Oh yeah! You’re going places!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

After giving up much between 2003 and 2005, you entered a new world where you slowly created a new identity by 2012. Since then, despite personal detours and decisions, you worked hard to reach this year, which is a pivotal time. This year you will get recognition for what you have been doing for the past eight years and longer. This will prompt your focus to pivot to your external world. Admittedly, personal relationships will be challenging in the next two years; and by 2023-24, you might regroup –with your partner, or not. One thing is certain: by 2026, you will begin to polish your skills and abilities to get ready to enter your time of harvest about seven years from now.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Ever since 2004-05, you have undergone change. Initially, you gave up much before entering a new world around 2008. Some of you even changed your daily wardrobe. By 2010-11, job changes and residential moves kept you on your toes. By 2015, you wanted security for your home base –something you could rely on. In the last few years, you keep asking yourself what you want to be when you grow up, no matter what your age is. Now you’re in a window of about two years of hard work. Suck it up and get on with it because your pay off will arrive in 2023, when everything you’ve done since 2008 finally evolves into a major shift of focus.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

In 2004-06, you were admired. You had responsibilities but you saw what was working and what was not. Around 2008, you began to dismantle much of what you had created since 1996, which led to changing your public persona around 2010-11. Unpredictable situations affected your job and your residence between 2015 in 2018, after which you worked to solidify your home base. This year, you want to play and have fun! You want a fun vacation! (Not easy during a pandemic.) Nevertheless, you will enjoy yourself because in 2022, you have marvellous chances to improve your job or get a better job. You will work hard to gain the recognition that comes your way in 2026.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

In 2005, you took your power. You saw what needed to be done and you had the courage to act. However, that was related to your external identity in the world. This year, you are grappling more with private, inner issues. You want to secure your home base, something you trust and can rely on. This is why many of you will do major repairs to where you live or perhaps contemplate a move. You can improve your living space this year or next, depending if you are born late in your sign. Next year promises vacation delights, which might be doable! By 2023, look forward to a better job and better health. Awriiight!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Between 2012 and 2015, your life was a roller coaster. Changing jobs and changing residences created adventure, which is something you like. (Peace and quiet in short bursts is nice, too.) Now, you’re in a two-year window when changing jobs and changing residences are likely. Fortunately, you are optimistic this year, which means you will attract something positive to you because you’re looking at the world with “winning” eyes. Around 2023, your real estate scene and your home will improve and you will be happier! Your family life will be happier as well! Small wonder that vacations, romance and fun times beckon to you in 2026!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

In many ways, this is a positive year for you because most of you will increase your assets and get richer. (If you are born late in your sign, after Jan 13, this benefit will come to you in 2022.) Nevertheless, this year, you will give a lot of thought to how you want to earn your money and what your basic values are. This could lead to a change of residence or a change of jobs between 2023 and 2026. These changes might follow because of your increased wealth this year, or because of a preference to have a different job or a different residence. One thing is certain: in 2023-24, you have a marvellous chance to improve where you live or make money through real estate. Count on this.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

So much is happening for you for this year because both Saturn and Jupiter are in your sign! In fact, Mercury and Venus are also in your sign right now, which means Mercury is retrograde in your sign. (Expect silly, goofy errors, mixed-up communications, delays, technological glitches and transportation breakdowns. Plus, all kinds of people from your past popping up out of the woodwork.) The good news is that you have survived your life since 2018 when frankly, you have been going through the dark night of the soul. That is over. Now you are lucky to have the divine blessing of Jupiter in your sign this year. And next year, in 2022, you will make more money! How sweet it is!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Since 2008, you have been more concerned with your external goals in life. In fact, around 2015-16, many things came to a culmination, which made you proud of your achievements. This year, you are entering a time when your spiritual development will become enriched. You might meet a teacher or become a teacher to others. You are also casting an eye about you to get rid of what is no longer relevant in your world. This is why you’ll go through closets, garages and storage lockers to downsize. Be smart and do this ruthlessly! Lighten your load so that next year, when lucky Jupiter enters your sign you can make the best of this blessing. And in 2023, you will get richer! Yay!

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, December 27, 2020 to Saturday January 2, 2021

All Signs

It’s the last week of 2020, which means we can say goodbye to a harrowing, hellish year. As we do so, the Sun and Mercury are in Capricorn. Venus is in Sagittarius, and Mars has only 10 days left in Aries. Thank goodness! (Normally, once every two years, Mars is in Aries for six weeks. But this year, Mars has been in Aries for six months!) Plus, from Sept. to mid-Nov., Mars was retrograde, which was brutal. That’s why this week is like asking someone why they’re banging their head against the wall. “Because it feels so good when I stop!” Will next year be better? Yes. Emphatically. Except for those who suffer from CRS (compulsive renovation syndrome). Warmest wishes for a Happy New Year to everyone!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Well, it is so very, very rare that your ruler Mars would be in your sign for six months like it has been this year. In one way, it boosted your energy and gave you an enormous drive and determination. However, when it went retrograde, it created indecision and negative factors in your life. In 10 days, this will be over. Meanwhile, the Sun and Mercury are at the top of your chart making you look wonderful to others, especially bosses, parents and important people. You want to talk to them and vice versa, they want to communicate to you. It’s a good time to ask what you want because they see you in such positive terms and with Mars still in your sign, you have the gumption to go after what you want!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

It’s not surprising that fiery Mars is entering your sign in 10 days to boost your energy and give you lots of drive for about six weeks. The reason this makes sense is because you’re entering such a powerful year! A year where you will be recognized for your achievements. Meanwhile, this week, you need a change of scenery and would love to travel or do something different. You’re keen to to study and learn new things. This same intellectual enthusiasm can be used to write or finish an important paper. Physical intimacy will be affectionate. Many of you will also receive gifts, goodies and favours from others – even cold, hard cash. Yes!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

As this year ends, relations with others are delightful and warm because fair Venus is opposite your sign. Venus makes you patient and tolerant. It also makes it easier for you to see what others are experiencing. Once you appreciate what someone else is going through, you have a better understanding of them and therefore, sympathy for what they’re dealing with. That’s all anyone wants is a little understanding. (Well, that and seconds on dessert.) This week your focus is on the wealth and resources of your partner and others. Your emotions are intense. Hey, let’s hope others appreciate what you are going through!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

For the last six months, Mars has been at the top of your chart arousing your ambition. This is why no matter what you have been undergoing, you have had a fierce determination to continue the fight. This has been useful for you; however, from Sept. to mid-Nov. when Mars was retrograde, you might have felt confused about your life direction. “What’s it all about, Alfie?” Right now, relations with coworkers are smooth and supportive. With the Sun opposite your sign, you will continue to need more sleep for the next three weeks; however, this also gives you more objectivity in your closest relations, which is a good thing. In fact, it’s a gift to be explored.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Yahoo! Venus is travelling through the most fun part of your chart! Venus is a very social influence. This means you want entertaining diversions and fun times with others. (Admittedly, it weakens your self-discipline.) But it will improve relations with kids as well as your own creative output. It favours romance and socializing with others because you feel there’s no need to pretend to be what you are not. You are someone who values your integrity. Leos rarely sell out. (All that Leo schtick: royalty, nobility and pride.) You will begin your new year very strong because Mars will be at the top of your chart in 10 days, and this will arouse your ambition as never before!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The planets are supportive to you now. Venus encourages home entertaining and enjoying times with family. Or you might prefer a quiet time at home with yummy food and drink. “To the good life!” In addition, the Sun and Mercury are in the most playful part of your chart, which means you want to escape on a vacation, enjoy social diversions, explore the entertainment world and have fun with kid’s activities. This same influence promotes romance. In fact, Mars is currently heightening your sex drive! All in all, you are blessed! Take a moment to alphabetize your blessings.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You wind up this year with a focus is on home, family and perhaps home repairs. Certainly, family discussions are taking place. Fortunately, with Venus in your House of Communications, you’ll be tactful, diplomatic and charming. Here is some good news for you: For the last six months, fiery Mars has been opposing your sign. (This is most unusual! The last time this occurred for this long was 32 years ago in 1988.) This has tested your patience with partners and close friends! From their POV, you’ve been a handful. In 10 days, when Mars moves on, all your relations with others will improve! Whew!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Even though this year is winding down, you are winding up! You are so busy! Reading, writing, studying, appointments, phone calls, Zoom sessions, small trips and other demanding errands have given you full schedule! Fortunately, many of you will attract money to you, which is a good thing. Furthermore, Mars is in a part of your chart that is helping you to work hard. (This has been your secret power!) Your busy pace will continue right into the beginning of 2021. Next month, you can have a breather and focus on home and family. Until then – carry on!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You often have big plans and big ideas. This week, most of your ideas are connected with money, earnings and what you plan to do with your possessions. Actually, these are fitting considerations as this year ends because it’s time to take stock. Many of you will be have residential moves in the next two years and possibly even a job change, which could mean your focus on possessions will be stronger than usual. (There’s an old army saying: “Three moves are worth a fire.”) With Venus in your sign now, everyone loves you. (Venus has a way of doing that.) Get ready to work hard in January when Mars moves into your House of Employment.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This continues to be a strong time for you with the Sun, Mercury and Pluto in your sign. That’s why you make a great impression on others and are able to attract people and favourable situations to you. This good fortune will last until January 19. It’s a good idea to think about ways to boost your earnings because this will be possible for you in the year ahead when you will get richer! Further good news is that the conflict, tension and increased activity and chaos that you have felt on the home front will diminish in two weeks. “And there was a great calm on the land and it was good.”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

For the last six months, fiery Mars has been in your House of Communications, which makes you identify strongly with your opinions! In fact, you identify so strongly with your ideas that you have been more inclined to be argumentative. If someone disagrees with you, you take it personally. Furthermore, if you’re excited about an idea, you want everyone else to jump on board, which is why you might be a bit pushy. Naturally, this can trigger conflicts with your immediate neighbours, relatives and people whom you encounter daily. But it has helped you to sell yourself even if at times, it’s got you in trouble. You’ll be glad to know that in 10 days everything will return to normal – whatever that is. I am speaking to an Aquarian, after all. Meanwhile, in one month, you will shine!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You are popular and will stay popular for the next three weeks. Enjoy hanging out with others, especially younger people. Friendships are especially important to you now. In addition, you’ll find that this is a great time to cooperate with others and work in tandem with them. (It’s a win/win.) With Venus high in your chart, it’s easy to get along with bosses and VIPs. (Oh yeah, your stylin’!) For the last six months, Mars has heightened your interest in business, earning money plus shopping. Many of you have been making big purchases! (Yes, the PS5.) In 10 days, Mars will leave your Money House and move into your House of Communications, which will make you busy, assertive and much more confident. You won’t hesitate to speak up for what you want. Plan for this moment.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, December 20 to Saturday, December 26, 2020

All Signs

On this Winter Solstice, Monday, Dec. 21, Jupiter and Saturn will be the closest they have been since 1623. (That’s 400 years ago!) This great conjunction marks the end of a 200-year era and the beginning of a new one. But really, it’s more of a constant flow of subtle changes. From 1820 to 2020, the seeds of the new era came with television in the 50s, home computers in the 80s and the Internet for the masses in the 90s. Looking ahead, technological advances will be mind boggling! (“Beam, me up Scotty.”) The move towards a global village and world government will encourage equal opportunities for everyone. Look up in the skies to see this rare event. The Santa fans call it the “Christmas Star.” (And you know that when you stop believing in Santa is when you start getting clothes for Christmas.)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Bosses, parents, VIPs and even the police will think you are wonderful in the next four weeks. That’s because you will impress others without even doing anything special. (Oh, the power of it all!) The reason for this is this is the only time all year that the Sun is at the top of your chart acting like a spotlight on you — and this spotlight is flattering! (You can’t go wrong.) Travel opportunities appeal but can you travel? Meanwhile. this great conjunction mentioned in All Signs above will begin a new kind of popularity for you. New friends, new groups and new associations are all waiting for you to appear.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

The next four weeks are interesting because three planets make you want to explore your world and do something different. “I need a change!” If you can’t travel, which would be ideal, then make every effort to learn something new so that you are stimulated by new ideas, new knowledge and fascinating discussions with others. It might be fun to learn a new language? Meanwhile, this great conjunction (see All Signs above) takes place at the top of your chart, which certainly bodes well for your career and your reputation with your peers! Great things await you. People have expectations of you in the coming year and you won’t let them down.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You will be intense and passionate in the next four weeks. Perhaps something important is at stake? Whatever happens, you will not be casual about things. Everything will matter. Issues will be black-and-white, good or bad. However, in the bigger picture, you want to get outta Dodge because you need a change of scenery. It’s in your nature to thrive on variety and stimulation; and many of you are getting cabin fever. Personally, relations with partners and close friends will be warm and supportive. Nevertheless, do something so that you feel some kind of exciting change! Shake things up a little.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

The next four weeks are the only time all year when the Sun is opposite your sign. Because the Sun is your source of energy (symbolically speaking in your chart) it means it is now as far away from you as it gets all year, which means you will have less energy. This means you need more sleep and more rest. Don’t ignore this and get run down. Mercury is also opposite your sign now, which means you will have lively discussions with partners and close friends. You might even attract someone very chatty to you. Meanwhile, the great conjunction mentioned in All Signs above takes place in one of your Money Houses. This bodes well for you! It means that the universe is going to open up and give you favours. Expect to benefit from banks, partners and the resources of others in the coming year. Ka-ching!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Suddenly, you’ve decided to swing into work mode. So much to do! Actually, you want to be better organized and efficient during the next four weeks. This is why you will do everything within your power to pull your act together so that your world is running smoothly around you. You want that reassurance. When you achieve this, then you have greater freedom to do the things you really want to do or deal with certain, necessary challenges. Nevertheless, Venus is in a part of your chart dealing with parties, fun activities with kids, sports and the arts so you will still have some fun. (Did you ever doubt it?)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Lucky you! You’re entering a wonderful four-week window that encourages you to enjoy life and do your own thing. Playful activities with children, exploring the arts, enjoying sports and just feeling good about life will be your theme for the next month. Family relations will be warm and friendly. You will enjoy redecorating where you live and making it look more attractive. If you can entertain at home in some way – you will. You might dramatically improve your health in the coming year, you might also get a better job or certainly, improve your existing job.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This Winter Solstice marks a time when you will start to focus on home, family and your private life much more than usual. In fact, in the next four weeks, you will welcome opportunities to cocoon at home and be more involved with a parent or family members. You might address certain home repairs. Family discussions will be important. Quite likely, you will feel more peaceful and appreciative of your surroundings. You will feel gratitude. Meanwhile, this important conjunction mentioned in All Signs above might lead to a more rewarding relationship with your kids. It will also encourage you to value your creative talents.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

For different reasons (some of them quite obvious at this time of year) you’re ready to swing into action!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your personal year is ending very soon; however, your new year has not yet begun until your birthday arrives. That’s why you are in a state of limbo for the next four weeks.

Meanwhile, you will create favourable impressions on bosses and people in business, and anyone connected to your professional life at this time. In fact, regardless of what you do for a living, others will want your input about design, layout, redecorating or PR decisions. Some of you might begin a romance with someone older or more established. You will also start to explore your private, inner world and your spiritual values more than usual. You realize this isn’t just a rehearsal – it’s the real deal. Be there or be square.
