All Signs: This week we have the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars in Leo plus Jupiter in Sagittarius. Five planets in Fire signs! Water signs – Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are emotional feelers. Air signs — Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are intellectual, animated and fast thinking. Earth signs — Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are practical, tactile builders. But Fire signs  — Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are passionate, dynamic and spontaneous! A single spark can start a forest fire! This means we’re looking at an active week ahead. Lots of stuff happening! Expect greater emphasis on the entertainment world, sports and children. Hmmm, I’ve got the place childproofed but the kids still get in.

Aries (March 21-April 19)  

This week your focus is on the issues that I mention in All Signs above. If you are involved in sports, be careful because accidents might take place, especially toward the end of the week. This is a week full of fun, social diversions that include parties, social outings, the arts, the theatre, musical performances, barbecues, picnics, romantic dates and of course, playful times with children. You will socialize extensively and enjoy having a good time. Many of you will be involved in creative projects, because let us not forget, you can do anything with your hands since you are the artisan of the zodiac. 

Taurus (April 20-May 20) 

This handful of planets in Fire signs hypes your interest in home, family and your private life. Many of you are redecorating where you live or making plans for a new home. You might buy beautiful things for your home or family. This is also the perfect time to tackle home repairs. Family gatherings might take place. In fact, you might be more involved with a parent than usual. There will be increased activity, even chaos, taking place at home due to visiting guests, renovations, repairs or residential moves. Practice patience because this chaotic influence can fray your nerves and create arguments with family members. Keep the peace and zip the lip.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) 

This is a fast-paced, exhausting week! Just resign yourself to the fact that your daily pace will accelerate as you try to keep up to the demands of your schedule. Short trips, a list of appointments and tasks, increased reading and studying plus time spent with siblings and relatives are some reasons you are juggling a lot in the air! Fortunately, your verbal skills are tops now. You are persuasive, diplomatic, convincing and at the same time, forceful and proactive. This means you will get what you want. It’s a strong week for those who teach, write, act, promote, sell and market. Take note that it is also an accident-prone week for you, especially around Friday. (Don’t squat with your spurs on.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22) 

This week your focus on cash flow, money and earnings continues to be strong. Some of you are involved in financial wheeling and dealing. Mercury in your Money House promotes moneymaking ideas. Mars will boost your energy and drive to earn money. Meanwhile, many of you might be contemplating a major purchase. Since you are never casual about money, this is something you will give much thought to. Be careful towards the end of the week, especially around Friday, because something unexpected could impact your wealth. You might find money; you might lose money. Something you own might be lost, stolen or damaged. This means you have to keep your eyes open.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) 

You are in your element this week because four planets are in your sign. This means the entire world is having a Leo hit! The Sun boosts your energy and gives you a chance to rejuvenate yourself. Mercury urges you to express your point of view to others and helps you put a great deal of yourself into whatever you have to say, which means you’ll be convincing! Venus urges you to schmooze and socialize with everyone. It also makes buying wardrobe items easier and more successful. Mars in your sign gives you a chance to show the world what you can do! It gives you vigorous energy and helps you make a great impression on everyone. Be respectful talking to authority figures on Friday.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) 

Keep in mind that this year you can make improvements to your home. You might also expand your family through birth, marriage or adoption. You might move to a bigger home. Likewise, you might benefit through real-estate speculation because everything to do with home, family and real estate will receive a benefit in your life in some way this year. However, this week, you are comfortable taking a backseat. You might choose to work alone or behind the scenes. In fact, it’s an excellent time to study and do research. Some of you are also dabbling in secret love affairs. (My lips are sealed but my fingers are moving.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) 


Many things about this year are changing in your day-to-day world. These changes not only introduce chances for you to learn something new, you will also likely be more involved with relatives – brother, sisters, cousins etc. Your plans for the future are more optimistic, in part because you realize that some of your limitations were self composed. Communications with others will be upbeat and optimistic; and this week is no exception. Enjoy hanging out with friends and members of groups, clubs and organizations. In particular, you will enjoy the company of younger people as well as creative, artistic types. You might be in competition with someone. This is a lively, stimulating time for you!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) 

With four planets at the top of your chart, the world notices you! Not only do people notice you, they admire you – especially bosses, parents and VIPs. This is due to the influence of the planets and relatively little to do with your performance. (Call it magic.) Since this influence benefits you only once a year for several weeks, use it to your advantage! Do whatever you can to advance your cause. Ask for permission or approval because people see you in a very good light. Actually, you will have no trouble doing this because Mars is one of those planets and Mars has aroused your ambition. Plus this is your year to get richer!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) 

It’s laughable that you love to travel more than any sign in the zodiac – and right now, there are four planets sitting in the part of your chart that urges you to travel. It doesn’t get better than this. Therefore, I repeat myself: Grab every chance that comes your way to travel this week. And likewise, grab every chance to learn something new or study. Meanwhile, this same energy will also bless your activities and ambitions in publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education. But hey — Jupiter is in your sign this year, which means important people and resources are drawn to you. It’s a lucky year for you plus the beginning of a major 12-year cycle of growth. (Time to let out another pleat in the shower curtain?)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) 

This is a powerful, intense and productive week. You are more in touch with your inner self right now, which means you have a better idea of what you want. You might even talk to someone else who provokes self inquiry in you? In addition, you’re focused on shared property, inheritances and anything that is held jointly with someone else. It’s a good week to have discussions about financial negotiations or shared property. You might have conflicts about these areas and have to assert yourself. Meanwhile, Venus will attract money to you through your spouse or business partner, which is why it’s timely to ask for a loan or mortgage. Furthermore, romance, sex and love relationships will be hot!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) 

Well, it’s a bit much with four planets opposite your sign, isn’t it? Both the Sun and Mars might encourage conflict with partners and close friends. It makes them challenge you and vice versa. Fortunately, it also gives you some perspective so that you see what’s going on. Fortunately, Venus is in the mix as well and Venus opposite your sign is the very best position for all relationships! It can even smooth the way with your enemies. Obviously, go with what works and what works is Venus. Use your sense of humour. Be patient. Do whatever is necessary to keep the peace. After all, as an Aquarius, you are a networker extraordinaire!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) 

Four planets are in the part of your chart that heightens your focus on dealing with pets, for whatever reason. These planets will also encourage you to think more about your health and wellness and what you can to promote the best possible health for yourself. However, for those of you who have a job, it’s all about your work. You have the energy to work hard as well as delegate to others. You’re willing to roll up your sleeves and get hands-on with whatever you’re doing. Fortunately, coworkers will praise you and you might even get a raise. (Ka-ching!) Look for ways to make your work place more attractive because you can do this. It’s a very productive week! (I’m impressed.)
