All Signs: This week there are a few speed bumps. The beginning of the week is exuberant and upbeat; however, by Wednesday, people will be a bit at odds with each other. This will intensify on Thursday and possibly build up emotionally and psychologically before the Full Moon in Scorpio on Sunday. These things happen. But hey, they present an opportunity for us to practice patience and demonstrate some class. After all, it’s easy to be smiling and patient when everything is hunky-dory. The real test is to keep smiling when you’re getting a bikini wax.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You begin this week with a lot of enthusiasm because your ambition is aroused and the financial and practical support that you need from others looks strong. (“Yay! I’m laughing all the way to the bank!”) Hold on to this solid and positive frame of mind so that you are not at odds with authority figures on Wednesday, which could easily happen. Ultimately, the energy that is building up this week until the Full Moon on Sunday, is all about money and finances. In particular, it deals with how your values differ from the values of someone else, especially regarding shared property and inheritances. Oh yes – you never really know someone until you have to share an inheritance with them. (Gulp.)
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
It’s true that this is a testy week for a lot of signs. And admittedly, as the energy builds up before the Full Moon in Scorpio on Sunday, this particular Full Moon is the only Full Moon opposite your sign all year. Nevertheless, you are empowered now because this is also the only time all year that the Sun is in your sign! And this makes you feel good! Yes, there will be some stress. However, the beginning of the week starts off with enthusiastic plans about travel, publishing, higher education, medicine, the law – something that will please you. And you will shop for delightful goodies this week as well! Just remember to be patient with loved ones. Avoid controversial subjects on Thursday! Run the other direction.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
A dispute you have with someone about shared property, inheritances, taxes or debt will go in your favour at the beginning of the week, especially Monday. You are charmed then! Perhaps this is why you might be at odds with a friend on Wednesday. (Don’t take this too seriously. Friendships have their ups and downs.) As the week progresses toward the Full Moon on Sunday, you might feel stress to your health, or stress building up in your job. Just cope as best you can because I assure you, after the Full Moon peaks on Sunday, much of the stress will diminish or even disappear. Whew! Hang in there. (Remember – this is the year for your health to actually improve!)
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Plans with partners and close friends are enthusiastic and upbeat at the beginning of the week! You’re really pumped to do something and you will enjoy the company of others. For some reason, by Wednesday, you disagree with a parent or a boss. Don’t make a big deal about this. Let it go. Instead, gather your strength to face the energy that builds toward Sunday’s Full Moon in Scorpio, which is one of the most intense Full Moons of the year. It could create stress with relating to your kids. It might also create stress in romantic relationships as well as social situations. The thing to remember is that whatever stress you feel will be gone by the beginning of next week. Trust me. The following week is a walk in the park!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You have lots of gung ho energy for your work at the beginning of the week! Relations with friends, especially artistic, creative types are smooth and supportive as well. Avoid controversial subjects like politics and religion on Thursday because this will cramp your style. The thing to keep your eye on is the build up of tension toward the end of the week for the Full Moon on Sunday, which will encourage stress on the home front. In fact, you might be pulled between the demands of home and family versus the demands of your career and your public reputation. Relations with female family members will be tough. But this is temporary. It’s a fleeting dark cloud on your horizon.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You begin this week with mucho enthusiasm about sports, social occasions, activities with children, romantic relationships or something to do with the arts. You have plans for fun and you intend to have a good time! Disputes about shared property might arise on Wednesday. By Thursday, relations with lovers or kids are intense. Avoid ego battles. Why try to prove something with a loved one? Just love this person and relax. Meanwhile, pay attention to everything you say and do because tension will build at the end of the week as you approach the Full Moon on Sunday and this tension could be accident-prone for you. Be vigilant. Be patient. Be smart.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You have lots of energy to make positive changes at home or within your family at the beginning of the week. This will please you because you like things at home to be pleasing, attractive and harmonious. Be patient with partners and close friends on Wednesday. Avoid family arguments on Thursday. Why even go there? Peace and harmony at home are more important. Don’t get caught up in tension that might build up by the end of the week about money, shared resources and inheritances. Although this feels important right now – in a matter of weeks – it won’t be important. Don’t blow your cool. Demonstrate your beautiful Libran diplomacy.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Like everyone else, you are upbeat and enthusiastic at the beginning of the week! Guaranteed. Admittedly, by Wednesday, you might be rankled by someone at work. (Don’t take it personally.) But you might because by Thursday, you are determined to win an argument. Be careful because as the week moves on, the energy will build to the only Full Moon in your sign all year, which takes place on Sunday. This will stress partnerships and close friendships. You have to ask yourself what do you want to be? Do you want to BE right? Or do you want to BE in the relationship? Demonstrate grace under pressure because no one has more willpower than you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You’re throwing your money around at the beginning of the week – spending big! Alternatively, you might be busting your buns to earn money because you are putting a lot of energy out, financially speaking. Ka-ching! This makes sense because your focus is on work and productivity this week – no question. Be patient with romantic partners and kids on Wednesday. By Thursday, financial issues are serious. You might be locked in a battle or determined to do something. Be aware that the Full Moon of the end of the week can create a build up of stress in your job and even your health. Take a step back and allow everything to have some breathing room. Give the situation some space.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You’re full of energy at the beginning of the week! You’re enthusiastic and excited about life. Vacations, romance, the arts and fun times (including sports) hold a lot of appeal for you right now. Things are smooth at work as well. However, be patient with an authority figure at home on Wednesday. On Thursday, use this intense energy to work hard instead of getting caught up in a power struggle. By the end of the week, the Full Moon could create stress with a friend or your kids – but it’s nothing you can’t handle. Just walk on by because next week is smooth sailing for your sign.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Go gently this week. The entire week builds up to the Full Moon in Scorpio on Sunday and this is a tough Full Moon for Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. One of the toughest in the year. Your enthusiasm at the beginning the week might lead to disputes with someone by the middle of the week. These disputes could continue until you feel at odds with parents, bosses, VIPs or someone at home. But you can sidestep this. Cultivate detachment. Instead of getting involved – just watch the circus. After all, it will all be over by next week. So don’t get your belly in a rash. It’s not worth it. With Jupiter at the top of your chart, you have divine protection.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You begin this week with eager enthusiasm, especially dealing with friends and groups. Some money concerns might arise on Wednesday. No biggie. Avoid power struggles with friends on Thursday. As the end of the week approaches, be extra careful because the Full Moon on Sunday will encourage an accident-prone situation for your sign. This could be a verbal accident or a physical accident. (Definitely.) Obviously, neither has to happen if you are mindful and aware. Enjoy redecorating at home. Invite a dear friend over to enjoy good food and drink. Avoid dicey conversations about politics, religion and racial issues. You are imaginative and powerful when it comes to creating your world. Create the world you want!
