All Signs: This week the Sun moves into Scorpio to stay for four weeks. This occurs on Tuesday, the same day it opposes Uranus — a sure sign of surprises! Meanwhile, all this happens on the day before the Full Moon! Oy! The beginning of the week is rocky – no question. (Keep ice cream on hand and send out for dark chocolate.) News flash! Mercury is retrograde from Nov. 17 to Dec. 6; but the buffer dates are Nov. 9 to Dec. 24. This means December is a write off for buying cars, trucks, computers and cell phones as well as opening a business. If your holiday shopping includes any of these items – buy now! But beware the bargain that takes your money and leads you astray through false profits. What the large print giveth, the small print taketh away.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
In the next four weeks, you want to experience life at a more feeling level. You’ll be compulsive. (You might not understand this behaviour.) This is because a hidden part of yourself is getting more energy. Naturally, this promotes psychological self inquiry, perhaps with a counsellor or professional who can help you understand your inner world. This influence lasts for a month once a year and often produces a psychological transformation. It also increases your involvement and concern with finances, shared property and anything you own jointly with a spouse or a business partner. The next four weeks are passionate and intense!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The only time all year that the Sun is opposite your sign is during the next four weeks. This means you will learn more about yourself through your intimate one-to-one encounters. You will examine your close relationships to see if they do or do not fulfil your needs. This is not the time to go it alone. Au contraire, it’s an excellent time to consult an expert – lawyer, psychologist, doctor or astrologer. You might experience conflict personally or legally. Meanwhile, you need to get more sleep because symbolically, the Sun is as far way from your sign as it gets all year, and the Sun is your source of energy. Go to bed.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
In the next four weeks, think about how to best manage your life and what duties and responsibilities need your attention. You want to be productive so you can get the most bang for your buck. This is why you will refine your technique or procedure for doing something. (Note: You might also have to work according to someone else’s wishes.) Since you’re on this efficiency kick, focus on your health and start to do what you think you should to be the best you can be. Why be less? Begin by stopping harmful habits and cultivating healthy ones. Go for a walk! (Take some M&M’s because let’s be honest here.)
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The Sun is now in one of the “happiest” parts of your chart for the next four weeks, which means you’re free to express yourself and be who you are! Do what you want to do and set your own priorities. Obviously, your main goal will be to get out and have a good time! Romance and love affairs will flourish. A vacation would be perfect. You will enjoy socializing with others, going to sports events, movies, musical performances plus eating out and meeting friends for Happy Hour. Your relationships will be lighthearted and playful. You will enjoy fun activities with kids. And if you walk near a vending machine, two Kit Kats and a bag of Hawkins’ Cheezies will fall out. You rock!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
The flashy part of your life will slow down in the next four weeks as you focus on home and family more than usual. What you want now is a solid base for what you’re doing. You might also be involved with a parent more than usual. Welcome the chance to have some privacy, especially in familiar surroundings. Basically, not only are you giving yourself a home-base to accomplish what you want to do, you are also giving yourself a chance to regenerate. You will recall past events and old memories from your youth because these images bubble to the surface of your mind. (Remember when they took the toilets from the boy’s washroom and put them on the roof of the high school?)
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Fasten your seatbelts because in the next four weeks, your daily pace will accelerate! You face a jam-packed schedule of short trips, errands, tasks, meetings, conversations with siblings and relatives plus increased reading, writing and studying. But it will be “fun busy”! Slip away on a vacation. Note: Your primary thrust for the month ahead will be communications. You want to enlighten others. You want to tell someone how you feel about something. This is excellent. Let clear communications be your goal. However, be aware that communications are a two-way street, so remember to listen! (“I heard every word he said and I don’t understand a thing.”)
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
“Show me the money!” Right now there are four planets in your Money House of Earnings. The Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter. This means you have moneymaking ideas and you’re negotiating financial deals. Venus will attract money to you and enhance your ability to negotiate. Jupiter will increase your earnings, especially with foreign interests. The Sun makes you assess your wealth, and your possessions and how you use them to be happier in your life. This is why you will also ponder your values. For example, which is better? Netflix or Amazon Prime? These are soul-searching questions. Don’t even mention Hulu.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This is a dazzling time because the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter are all in Scorpio! (Admittedly, Mercury will soon go retrograde in your sign. Yikes!) This is the classic example of “Make hay while the Sun shines!” You have many advantages. The Sun energizes you and attracts people and favorable situations to you. Mercury makes you articulate. (You sound smart.) Venus makes you diplomatic and charming; and Jupiter attracts good fortune to you and makes life easier, richer and more rewarding. That’s why this will be one of the most powerful birthday months you’ve ever had. Admittedly, home is chaos and frantic activity. (Nothing’s perfect.)
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You’re outgoing, friendly and breezy; however, in the next four weeks, you will withdraw from the busyness of your everyday world not because you feel downcast or antisocial – but because you feel the need for privacy in your life and getting in touch with your subconscious self. For example, childhood behaviour patterns that have outlived their usefulness will be more obvious to you. You recognize them and realize they’re no longer relevant. As your birthday looms ahead, your personal year is ending. Now is the time to look back over the last year to see how well you are managing the art of living. What changes do you want to make for your new year ahead?
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You’ll be more popular in the next four weeks. Because friendships are important, you will examine the role they play in your life. You want to be who you are without violating your integrity. Also, because your idealism is aroused, you will be more involved with clubs and associations. You’ll find it rewarding to cooperate with others. However, once again, examine the role that these organizations play in your life. Do they exemplify your own goals? After all, the people you associate with are a reflection of yourself. Romance with a friend might develop. (A friend could become a lover.)
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
A gaggle of planets is at the top of your chart! The Sun casts you in a flattering spotlight, making you look capable to bosses and parents. You can use this to push your agenda forward. Mercury at the top of your chart makes you plan for your future and encourages discussions with bosses. It also helps you to undertake a new study to boost your career. Venus at the top of your chart attracts people and circumstances to you that will help you. (You might be involved in design, layout work office redecorating or doing PR work.) Venus will also trigger a romance with a boss or someone older or in power. Jupiter at the top of your chart brings good fortune to get ahead in your career! A powerful month!
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You long to travel and break free of of your daily routine. Anything that offers stimulation and excitement and a chance to learn something new will appeal to you in the next four weeks. This is an excellent time to study or to take a course. It’s also great time to get outta town. Mercury will make it easy for you to study and talk to teachers. Venus will enhance your appreciation of beauty, which is why you will enjoy museums, art exhibits, college campuses and architectural buildings. You might broaden your experience of the world by falling in love with someone from another culture or someone different. Jupiter will attract opportunities to travel and broaden your views on life because Jupiter is a maturing influence.
