All Signs: It’s an easy-going week. There are a few hiccups but life always has speed bumps. The good news is Mercury is out of its retrograde shadow. (Even though Mercury retrograde was over mid April, Mercury did not catch up to where it was when it first went retrograde until May 4.) This means we now have the green light to buy cars, trucks, bikes, computers or cell phones. But do check the Moon Alert of the day because that would be like, duh? There’s a Moon Alert every few days, which I mention at the top of my daily horoscope as well as on Twitter and Facebook. Yep – gotta stay clued in! Who wants to be lost in the mountains with a broken leg and no cell service?
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This week you continue to focus on money, cash flow, earnings and major purchases. It’s a good week for business and commerce. You have excellent moneymaking ideas, plus you are blessed if you are involved in disputes about shared property, inheritances taxes and debt. Your ambition is strong, which puts you in the driver’s seat. Venus guarantees that you’re smooth talking, which is wonderful news for those who write, sell or market, teach or act. Mercury is in your sign, and for the first time in eight weeks, it’s in the clear and charging forward! Yeehaw! This makes you want to express your views. You’re upbeat, excited and have a strong urge to travel.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You’re in top form because the Sun is in your sign! You’re riding the wave! Relations with partners and close friends are warm. You’re keen to travel – no question. You are also buying beautiful treasures for yourself and loved ones. Nevertheless, opportunities to make more money still exist. Some will explore new avenues in publishing, the media, the law or something to do with higher education or medicine. You might want to have a “do over” in one of those areas. “Let’s try this one more time!” Remember: With the Sun in your sign, you are favored. Stay confident!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
There are two influences at play this week. Because the Sun is hiding in your chart, likewise you want to withdraw from the hectic world around you. You’re not antisocial – you just want to focus on your inner world. But Mercury and Venus have different plans! Mercury wants you to schmooze with younger people and hang out with groups, while Venus in your sign creates a desire within you to relate to everyone! Venus makes you warm and charming! (And it always ranks pleasure above work.) This is why you want to go out and have fun. Thus, you have a pendulum swinging back and forth this week: “I’m staying in.” “I’m going out!” “I’m staying in.” I’m going out!”
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Your popularity continues. This week it will be meaningful to hang out with friends and groups, especially if you share their values and ideals. You will examine the role that friendships play in your life. You will enjoy working and cooperating with others because you want to socialize more. This might also be a fun escape because relations with partners are a bit dicey. (Yeah, you’re annoyed.) In addition, because your idealism is aroused, it’s reassuring to hang out in a group that supports your values. Be patient with bosses and parents on Monday. No need to antagonize anyone. Just stay chill because it’s a solid week after that.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
“You look mahvellous dahling, mahvellous!” This is the only time all year when the Sun is at the top of your chart, which symbolizes a flattering spotlight on you. This means bosses, parents and VIPs are smitten. They admire you. (The joke is you don’t even have to do anything special – it’s all smoke and mirrors.) Nevertheless, they are impressed! Obviously, you can use this to your advantage by choosing this time to make your pitch and advance your agenda. Fortunately, you’re keen to work hard. (Mars in your 6th House is taking care of that.) And when you do go out to schmooze – you are charming! (Venus in your 11th House will take care of that.) How sweet it is!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
The planets are smiling on you! If you’re lucky – you are travelling on vacation. You can also benefit from opportunities in higher education and training or the law or medicine. Positive career moves related to publishing and the media also exist; and with Venus at the top of your chart – bosses and VIPs think you are the cat’s meow! (A romance related to someone in a position of authority might begin.) Note: Much of the reason for these good vibes is your own positive state of mind. You believe in yourself. You believe in your future. You understand that nothing is perfect but that you are in charge. You are Master of your fate and Captain of your soul!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You’re focused on red-tape issues like inheritances, shared property and things that you own jointly with others plus insurance and taxes. (Hmm, do you think taxes test our powers of deduction?) Mercury is opposite your sign now, which means you’re keen to talk to partners and close friends. Nevertheless, this opposition can also trigger conflict. (You don’t like conflict although ironically, you are verbally eloquent and a great debater. Go figure.) Increased activity and chaos on the home front might be distressing. The ticket is to travel somewhere because this is what you really want to do. (“I’m packed – call a cab.”)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
It’s a solid week. As mentioned last week, you need more sleep and this still stands. Go to bed. Nevertheless, fair Venus in one of your Money houses improves your chances to benefit from the wealth and resources of others. You can attract money to you through your partner or your spouse. Or a bank. Venus also sweetens your intimate relationships. (Be still my beating heart.) Romance is sweet and cozy! Meanwhile, fiery Mars is in your House of communications revving your engines and increasing the tempo of your everyday life. You are forceful in all your conversations with others. Don’t try to coerce someone to agree with. Lighten up. It’s all good.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
This is a productive week primarily due to your motivation. You are concerned with physical efficiency and managing your life effectively. Naturally, you’re prepared to work for this and do what needs to be done. Because you want to be efficient, you will refine and hone your techniques. These high standards will apply to your health as well, which is why you want to be as healthy as possible. Part of this mix is fiery Mars stirs up your desire to earn money. Yes, it’s all coming together. The cherry on the cake is fair Venus is in your 7th House of partnerships and close friends, making this an excellent time to discuss agreements, especially related to your work or professional. “I am so on it!”
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Opportunities to play and enjoy life continue for your sign. That’s because this is the only time all year that the Sun is travelling through your 5th House making you want to freely express yourself! You have a strong urge to get out and have fun! You feel lighter than usual! You feel playful! Relations with children will improve. Your interest in sports will be strong, and yes, romance and relationships will be high spirited and saucy! (I’m not making this up.) Mars in your sign gives you lots of drive and energy, while Venus ensures smooth relationships with working colleagues and coworkers. In fact, many of you will get praise now if not a raise. (Fingers crossed.) It’s totally appropriate to go after what you want.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Your personal life, home and family continue to be your primary focus. Many of you are involved with a parent more than usual. You enjoy your home now because you want to feel comforted by being around familiar things. Nevertheless, Venus urges you to socialize and enjoy vacations, sports events and fun activities with children. Venus in your 5th House also promotes new romance. Oh yes. You find it easy to get along with others because there’s no reason to pretend to be what you are not. You feel confident and relaxed with no need to explain or apologize. What freedom! Plus Jupiter at the top of your chart gives you such great press! “Anyone want my autograph?”
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Your fast pace continues as you encounter new events, new places and new people. It’s stimulating! This is a wonderful time to take a course or learn new things because you are curious and open to receiving new knowledge. Relations with family members are warm and supportive. Because of your hectic pace, you welcome a chance to enjoy quiet hours at home. You are also keen to redecorate your home or buy pretty things for home or family members. However, Mars is all about energy and competition, and right now it is influencing your relationship with friends and groups. Best to coordinate your needs with others. Look for a win/win. Physical activities with friends and groups will be gratifying. (“I win! Yes, this means you lose.”)
