All Signs: The predictions for this week are a bit like a weather forecast with heavy rain interspersed with sunshine. On Monday, we will all experience detours, accidents and unpredictable situations because of Uranus. This happens again on Thursday, but it’s a bit milder. Fortunately, Tuesday is charming and easy-going; and likewise, Wednesday is calm and productive. So this week definitely has its highs and lows. This means you have to be careful about how you act or speak on Monday. Don’t shoot from the hip. And remember: the only substitute for good manners is fast reflexes!
Aries (March 21-April 19)
The Uranian surprises (including accidents) that you will encounter this week will be related to home and family. Be especially polite and patient with family members on Monday and Thursday. However, this influence can hover on other days as well. The good news is that if you do overstep your boundaries or get into trouble on Monday, especially with an authority figure in the family, Tuesday is the perfect day to make amends. That’s because Tuesday is a soft, warm easygoing day. Just remember that patience is the antidote to anger; and while there so much going on at home – you need lots of patience! August promises to be a much more fun-loving, lighthearted month. Whew!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This wild Uranus energy that manifests on Monday and Thursday – and hovers for much of this week – will create more problems for you than with other signs. (Sorry.) Do be aware of this. For starters, it’s an accident-prone influence, which means you have to be very careful this week, especially Monday and Thursday to avoid a verbal accident i.e. blurting something out you might later regret – and also to avoid a physical accident. Go slowly and carefully. Be cautious. Think before you speak. Fortunately, midweek (especially Tuesday) is an excellent time for financial matters and boosting your earnings. You might also buy something you really like on Tuesday. Good luck!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Keep an eye on your money scene this week because this is where you might have a rude awakening. On Monday and Thursday (most especially those two days), you might find money or you might lose money. Or perhaps, something you own will be lost, broken or stolen. Therefore, you have to keep your eyes open; and be vigilant and careful in how you handle what you own. Admittedly, unexpected opportunities to earn money could fall in your lap as well. But loss and breakage are more likely. Tuesday is a lovely day to schmooze with others; and Wednesday is a wonderful day to make serious plans for the future. (Where there’s a will – I want to be in it.)
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This week is full of unexpected events, snap decisions, surprise situations, restless, impulsive actions and maybe even a palace coup or two. Oh yeah. You feel rebellious and independent and will brook no interference from others, especially authority figures. “On guard! Who goes there?” My advice for you is to slow down and take it easy. Watch your impulses so that you don’t do or say anything you later regret. Be cool. Also be very careful physically because you don’t want to get hurt. Tuesday and Wednesday are both gentle days that will be like a lull between Monday and Thursday. Don’t be hasty about anything. It’s always darkest before it gets pitch black.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
The unpredictable energy that is flying around this week, especially on Monday and Thursday, will ruffle your feathers in a more private, behind-the-scenes way. Whereas some signs are more obviously threatened by a direct accident either verbal or physical, you will feel plagued by a vague restless feeling. There is stuff going on behind the scenes that troubles you. Yes, you are surprised and caught off guard – but others might not know this. At least, they don’t know the extent to which you feel surprised. (Leos are great actors.) Tuesday is a lovely day to schmooze with friends and groups. Wednesday is a good day to make plans, especially about vacations. You love vacations!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
The issues that will throw you off your pace this week (because every sign will feel Uranus one way or the other) will be related to friends and groups. For example, at the beginning of the week, you might be at odds with a friend or a member a group and this might be about a competition. If it is not a direct, obvious competition, it might be a subtle competitive situation. Be careful because this definitely can involve an accident. A friendship might break up. The thing to do is to not overreact and not to respond too quickly. Think about what your overall objective is and stay on track with that. Resist the temptation to get caught up in just an emotional response to things. Use your smarts. Be chill.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
For Libra, this is a tricky week to deal with parents, bosses, authority figures and the police. Do not go looking for trouble – it will find you all too easily. If you have a standoff with a parent, boss or an authority figure – think before you speak or act. Don’t be impulsive or hasty. Almost certainly, someone will do something that amazes or angers you; or perhaps it infringes on your freedom?. Naturally, you want to respond; but why let your response make things worse? Whatever happens Monday might have an echo on Thursday – so be careful. Travel for pleasure on Tuesday will delight. But overall, this week, you can use your Libran charm and diplomacy to stay out of trouble.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Travel plans and matters related to publishing, the media, medicine, the law and anything to do with higher education are subject to sudden changes and surprises this week – especially on Monday and Thursday. Just be aware of this. For some, it can be an accident-prone influence, which means you have to be mindful of everything you say and do. You might encounter conflicts about politics, religion or racial issues. People are ready to revolt. They feel inflamed by something. Tuesday is a good day for financial discussions, especially about shared property and debt. Tread carefully. Keep your eyes open! Be alert – (the world needs more lerts).
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
This week Uranus is creating surprises for everyone; and it’s important to know that the surprises and unexpected events that will impact your sign will relate to inheritances, taxes, debt, shared property, insurance issues and anything that you own jointly with others. Just be aware of this. Double check everything. Assume nothing. For example, some kind of financial arrangement that you were counting on might fall through. This could also relate to a loan or a mortgage. Or the flip flop might happen. You might suddenly get an unexpected approval for a loan, mortgage or credit card. Tuesday is a lovely day to schmooze with partners and close friends. Make note of that.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
This is a rocky week for your closest relationships and partnerships. In fact, some relationships will end. All relationships will experience surprises and unexpected situations that might trigger arguments. Perhaps you or someone else will jockey into position so that there is more freedom for you in the relationship? Maybe you want to do things differently? Maybe you want an open relationship? This influence is strongest on Monday and Thursday. Tuesday is a great day at work because coworkers are supportive and helpful. Maybe even flirtatious. And Wednesday is a great day for financial planning. Good luck!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Get ready for a hairy week because your ruler Uranus will create problems in your job, your health or where you work. These surprises and problems might also have something to do with a pet. The obvious is computer problems will occur on Monday or Thursday, causing glitches, delays or a shut down. Or someone at work, especially in authority, could also trigger a big surprise. If so, you might be defiant. After all, you are a freedom-loving sign who values justice and fairness for all. This week you might get on a soapbox and fight for what you think is right. Meanwhile, Tuesday is a lovely day to take off. Enjoy parties, long lunches and pleasant socializing with others. Wednesday is a good day for a serious, practical heart-to-heart talk. “Hi, my name is Smith comma John.”
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Please be careful because the surprises that Uranus brings to your sign could relate to your kids or children you work with. This means this is an accident-prone week for your kids, especially Monday and to a lesser extent on Thursday. Therefore, you have to be vigilant and on the ball. Make sure that nothing hazardous or dangerous is in the picture. This can also provoke fights and arguments with your kids. Again, remember that patience is the antidote to anger. Patience stops things from escalating. Patience stops you from saying or doing something you will later regret. Tuesday is a lovely day to entertain at home or do some redecorating. Wednesday is productive at work. Take note: this same influence that could impact kids, will also create changes to your social calendar. Parties, plays, the theatre and even vacations might be cancelled. Get ready.
