All Signs: The planet Uranus represents energy that is wild and wacky. It rules Aquarians who were all born 50 years ahead of their time. They sit around inventing things and starting revolutions. (“Save the males! Save the males!” What? Oh sorry. “Save the whales! Save the whales!”) The planet Uranus denotes anything unpredictable, sudden and explosive that crashes through traditions, barriers and restrictions in order to create something better. Uranus takes 84 years to cycle through all 12 signs. The Sun takes 365 days to do likewise. Therefore, once a year they line up. (“What? You again.” “Wanna sign a petition?”) This annual meeting of the Sun and Uranus happens this week. This is why you will break rules, rebel or snap your fingers and meet Captain Underpants. Oh yes. Beware the Wrath of the Wicked Wedgie Woman! Bwa-ha-ha.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You will definitely be a lot to deal with this week. Oh yeah. You will be high energy, impulsive, excited about new possibilities and going off in all directions. Va va va voom! Others might think you are being rash. Your decisions will be fast and unusual. You might choose to do something nobody expects. And you won’t want anyone telling you what to do – oh no. Daily routine will stifle you. You will want to do things that are different and exciting. You want to be free of anything that holds you back, in a job, in a relationship and in life! “I’m outta here!” Do be careful because this energy is also accident-prone. Ya think? Yes – look before you leap!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The same volatile, impulsive energy that propels Aries (see above) is also at work for you this week. However, it is taking place in a hidden part of your chart. Therefore, you will feel restless and possibly discontented. You will seek change; and feel the need to defy routine but you might not really know why. It will be a general feeling of discontent. Like you’re sitting on a situation that simply has to give! But what might also occur is quite intriguing. You will experience some kind of epiphany. An intellectual or spiritual breakthough. That ultimate “ah ha” moment. Eureka! Uranus has the ability to go beyond the bounds of conventional thinking, sort of like an explosion. Think of it like colouring outside the lines. Whatever happens will ultimately make you feel younger, fresher and rejuvenated!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
The people you encounter this week – and this might include a friend – will be different and exciting. They will not be the kind of people with whom you usually interact. In fact, something about these interactions will make you feel younger and more alive! Yeah! You will learn something new, perhaps something radical from someone. Someone might also trigger a mental chain of events within you that causes you to change your future goals. And if you don’t meet someone new who is different and exciting – then perhaps, someone you already know, will act in an unusual way and amaze you. Whatever the case, your interactions with others will make you stretch, grow and consider the impossible. What will my tomorrow be? No guts, no glory!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This week a boss, parent or someone in a position of power (including the police) will catch you off guard. It might be a direct challenge, which makes you feel threatened. Or someone might challenge you to step up to the plate. (Time to put on your big girl pants.) Or you might get a promotion or praise that surprises you. These relations with parents and bosses will make you freer in the long run, even if it means you have to rebel and grab your freedom. (Not usually your style.) You would rather lie low in the tall grass and see what happens. But this week, something will reach out and grab you by the throat. Do not overreact. Do not quit your day job. Nevertheless, you have an opportunity for more freedom.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This week you might get an unexpected opportunity to travel. Admittedly, travel plans that were made in advance might now be changed or cancelled. Likewise, you might get a surprising opportunity with publishing or the media or something related to medicine and the law. Some will also suddenly decide to take a course or have an unexpected change related to training and education. You might also have an unusual exchange with someone from another country or a different culture. Or you might meet someone unusual from a different background. Something related to all these areas will surprise you. Count on it!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Do your homework and stay on top of financial matters that are related to shared property, taxes, debt, inheritances, wills and anything to do with insurance issues. That’s because these are the very areas where you might expect a surprise this week. Not only will it be a surprise; it will be something unexpected that ultimately liberates you from some responsibilities. You will feel freer. You will be relieved of a burden or an obligation, especially a financial obligation. You might also be relieved from having to take care of someone or their belongings or their property. Ultimately, this will make you feel lighter and happier.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Your closest relationships and partnerships might be challenged in the coming week because you will longer put up with whatever has restrained you or confined you or forced you to deal with something you did not like. It could be the proverbial last straw. Something might make you want to throw in the towel because you’ve had it! Enuff awreddy! Or perhaps a new flirtation entices you to escape an existing long-term relationship? Hmmm, an easy temptation to fall for. You have to ask yourself if years later, you will regret your decision – or not. Don’t risk something strong and enduring for a mere bonbon. Relationships are important to you. (And there is no end to better.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This week something sudden and surprising will occur that impacts your job. You might find a new job. Horrors – you might lose a job. You might rebel against boring routine and discover a better way of doing something. You might introduce more technology into your job. Or someone unusual might appear on the scene as a coworker or boss. These same unusual events might also impact your health; and for some, these unexpected changes will impact your relationship with a pet. Whatever the case, it will be sudden; it will be surprising; and it will free you from confining routines and responsibilities you no longer want to handle.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
This will be an exciting week for you! You might get an unexpected invitation to a fun event. Something you did not expect might occur in the arts, the hospitality world or the entertainment industry. You might suddenly join a dance class or take up drawing, painting, weaving, jewelry making – whatever because you want a chance to express your creativity. You might suddenly go on a vacation. A surprise party might occur. Parents might be caught unawares by unexpected news related to their kids. Whatever happens will make you feel younger, freer and liberated from the past. Grab some sparklers and do some kicks!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Many people will be surprised by unexpected events this week; and for your sign, the surprise will most likely be related to your home and your family. You might have a chance to change residences or make changes to where you live. You might buy new toys for your home, especially something high-tech or perhaps modern art? Family news might surprise you. Some of you will also be liberated from some family responsibilities. Whatever new changes occur will give you greater freedom that makes you feel rejuvenated, lighter and younger. Perhaps a parent will make an announcement that amazes you. “Luke, I am your father.”
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
This is a fast-paced week for you with lots of changes and exciting ideas! Without question, your daily routine will not be the same this week. This might be due to a detour, transportation glitches and delays; or relations with a sibling, neighbour or relative. Someone might surprise you with exciting news. Because your pace will accelerate and ideas will be bouncing off your brain, you might be distracted, which means this also could be an accident-prone time. Therefore, be careful. Pay attention to everything you say and do even though it’s a constantly changing landscape. Fasten your seatbelt!
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Something unusual will impact your finances, your earnings and possibly your possessions so do keep your eyes open this week. Of course the good news is that you might suddenly get a new job, get a raise, receive a gift or get a boost to your wealth in some way. Admittedly, surprises can go both ways and you might suddenly experience a loss. But the overall tone of this surprise will be that you feel younger and liberated and freer for some reason, which leads me to believe that for most of you, this will be positive news. Something might cause you to change your values in a rather radical way. Because of this you might give up possessions that have been weighing you down. “Be gone! Now I’m free!”
