Positive vibes are exploding this week! Except for seven weeks in Nov. & Dec. — lucky Jupiter is in dynamic Aries from May 10, 2022 to May 16, 2023. That’s a ten-month shot of adrenaline pumping into us! This week, Mars (the ruler of Aries) joins the dance, amplifying the energy of Jupiter, making it explode in astrological “goodness!” This will boost everyone’s confidence, erase their inhibitions, and make people believe they can achieve their dreams. But (there’s always a ‘but’) …. Mars in Aries rules war; so feisty confrontations are likely. Also, Mars is our ego. Ergo: “We are right!” (Gotta watch that ego/ergo thang.) “Whaat? If was wrong, don’t you think I’d know it?”
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Your ruler Mars will be in your sign for the next six weeks, which is super energizing! Although this can happen once every two years, this time it will be an over-the-top experience for you because at the same time as Mars is in your sign, Jupiter will be in your sign as well. (This can happen only once every 12 years.) This means you’re cooking on all six burners. You feel courageous, eager, enthusiastic and totally confident about carrying out your plans. You’re ready to think big and nothing will hold you back. Obviously, this fortuitous combination can help you accomplish something. Grab the baton and run!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Mercury is retrograde in your sign until June 3; however, the shadow phase of Mercury retrograde will last as long as June 19. (Be smart and postpone buying ground transportation, computers and cell phones until after June 19.) Despite the annoyances of misplacing items, forgetting appointments and dealing with goofy mistakes, when Mercury is retrograde in your sign, it helps you to study the past, and learn more about who you are by seeing where you came from because you are the sum of all that you have ever been. It’s a time of reflection and wisdom that can be attained by deduction and revelation. You can make this work for you.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You are empowered because the Sun is in your sign until Tuesday, June 21. This means the next month is your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. This is timely because you’re looking at a popular time ahead! For the next year, Jupiter will boost your interactions with others and increase your involvement in clubs and organizations. For the next seven weeks, fiery Mars will urge you to formulate goals and pursue them. It also might throw you into a competitive situation with someone else, especially in athletics. Fortunately, it will stimulate your physical activity. You might get a promotion or a boost in your income. Looking swell!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This is a fabulous time for your reputation, your career and the impression you create on your peers because for the next year, Jupiter will be at the top of your chart giving anyone the impression that you are successful. (Hopefully, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.) Very likely, something will substantiate all this admiration. You will get a raise, a promotion, an award, or earn accolades and public recognition for your efforts. For the next month, Mars at the top of your chart, will arouse your ambition to go after what you want. Meanwhile, Venus is also at the top of your chart smoothing all your dealings with authority figures. Possibly promoting romance?
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You’ll be popular for the next four weeks because your attention will be on friends and groups. This is because friendships will be important to you. You might examine your role in these relationships, and wonder if you are being a good friend to others. Should you do more to cultivate warm friendships? Meanwhile, lots of activity is taking place in the sign of Aries because Jupiter, Mars and Venus are gathered together in this sign. This ensemble will boost your desire to travel and do what you can to get a change of scenery. It might also increase your ambitions in publishing, medicine and the law. Meanwhile, Mercury retrograde will attract bosses and authority figures from your past back into your world.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Once a year, the Sun travels across the top of your chart for four weeks. That time has arrived, which is good news because it symbolizes that you are in a spotlight, and this light is flattering. Yes! (You look mahvalous dahlink.) Especially to bosses, parents and VIPs. And you don’t even have to do anything special. (It’s smoke and mirrors.) Obviously, you can take this to the bank. (Oh yes.) Lucky, moneybags Jupiter, Mars and fair Venus are all in one of your Money Houses! Jupiter will stay there for the next year, which will increase your wealth from other sources – the government, loans, inheritances or indirect benefit through your partner. Romance is hot as well!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
In the next four weeks, you want to get outta Dodge and grab a change of scenery to feel more stimulated about life. You want to study, travel, seek adventure and meet new, interesting people. Yeah! Likely, this will include partners or close friends because this part of your chart is activated for the rest of year. Venus and Jupiter will introduce positive, upbeat vibes with those who are close to you; however, Mars has just entered the room to stay for the next seven weeks. Mars represents war so it will create conflict. (See All Signs above.) On the upside, Mars will give you the courage to speak your peace, which might be a good thing.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
In the next four weeks, you will be more in touch with a deeper part of yourself. You want to experience life on a feeling level, not an intellectual abstraction. (You might meet someone who triggers this process.) You might find you are more concerned about finances bills, insurance issues, shared property and money from others. Meanwhile, Mercury retrograde will attract ex-partners and old friends from your past. “Homer!” “Marge?” However, one thing is certain, anything related to your job will slowly start to improve – no question. Opportunities to improve your existing job or get a better job will come to you. Relations with coworkers will also improve. This is nice.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Once a year, the Sun sits opposite your sign for four weeks. That time has arrived. This means you are focused on partners, spouses and close friends. “Sup, hon?” It’s important to know that while you are focused on this relationship, it’s an ideal time for you to learn more about your own style of relating to others because you have more objectivity right now. Meanwhile, the Sun is your source of energy, and symbolically, it is as far away from your sign as it can get all year. This means you will need more sleep. It’s also a good time to consult experts – lawyers, counsellors, accountants or an astrologer. But in the bigger picture, it’s going to be party city for your sign because you want to have fun! Children will be a source of joy. (Nice.)
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Roll up your sleeves because in the next four weeks, you will be productive, busy, hard-working and you will accomplish a lot. Oh yes. You will set your standards high, which is why whatever you do – you want to do it as efficiently as possible. (Like the wise carpenter: Measure twice, cut once.) You’ll be happy in the next four weeks because you like to be efficient. It pleases you. Meanwhile, a strong energy is focusing on home and family for you that will last all year. However, a strong burst of energy in your personal life will take place in the next several weeks. You might do renovations, redecorating projects, repairs or just shove some furniture around. Enjoy your home!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
This is one of the most playful times of the year for your sign because for the next four weeks, the Sun will travel through the part of your chart that deals with vacations, parties, playful activities with kids, sports, the entertainment world and just having fun. Yay me! Your creative vibes will be hot. You want to socialize, as well as express your talents. Retrograde will put you in touch with family members you haven’t seen for a while. Meanwhile, optimism will be the theme of all your communications in the next year. And in the next several weeks, you will mean what you say and say what you mean! “‘Ten shun!”
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Home, family and your private life will be your main focus for the next four weeks. No question. Many of you will also be more involved with a parent than usual. Meanwhile, this is a wicked Mercury retrograde for your sign right now so expect transportation delays, car problems, mixed-up communications, missed appointments and lots of delays. (Major groan.) However, you will also enjoy coming in contact with relatives, siblings and neighbours you haven’t seen for a while. This will be a great time to study history and do research into the past. But the really good news is that for the next year, you’re going to get richer! Ka-ching! Would I kid you? (Not about money.)
