All Signs: This is a fascinating week! We have a gaggle of planets in Capricorn: The Sun, Venus, Mars, Saturn and Pluto. Plus, there is a lovely back-and-forth between some of these planets and lucky Jupiter. The only downer moment might be a brief time late Friday night. Do note that as this week unfolds, there will be a few surprises next Saturday and again on Sunday. Well, I know growing old is full of surprises and learning moments. For example, you learn that when you bend over to tie your shoe, it’s smart to ask yourself, “Is there anything else I should while I’m down here?”

Aries (March 21-April 19) 

This week you will have a strong involvement with parents or bosses and authority figures because all of these five planets in Capricorn are at the top of your chart. You will be ambitious about going after what you want! Furthermore, you will be high viz. – people will notice you. Fortunately, they will admire you and give you the benefit of the doubt. In fact, your relations will be so cozy, some of you might strike up a romance with a boss. You can definitely get the financial, practical and emotional support from other sources that you need. If you want money or equipment – just ask for it!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a strong and wonderful week for you because five planets in Capricorn are totally supportive to your Taurus Sun. This week you will be thrilled to travel and explore more of the world. And if you can’t travel, you will make travel plans because you intend to go places! Likewise, your ambition will lead you to sign up for a course or training so that you learn more. You will also have a chance to explore avenues in publishing, the media, medicine, the law and perhaps working in higher education. Relations with partners and close friends will be warm and wonderful! Yay!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your financial scene is looking fabulous because this gaggle of planets in Capricorn (see All Signs) is parked in one of your money houses, specifically the money house related to the wealth and resources of others. This means you can easily get money and funds from others! Others might give you gifts. They will do favours for you. In financial negotiations, you will come out on top. You will also be skilfull about achieving your financial aims in discussions about inheritances, shared property and insurance issues. Meanwhile, job opportunities are starting to look fabulous! Lucky you!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

With five planets opposite your sign, of course your focus will be on close friendships and partnerships this week. Venus will make everything sweet and friendly, which is reassuring and pleasant, especially since Mars will stir up some trouble by making you impatient with someone. The Sun will offer you an opportunity to observe your style of relating. Pleas note: An opportunity like this is important because the more skilful you can be in your relationships to those who are close to you – then the happier you will be! And, of course, the same for them. (Basically, if you want to be respected and valued then you have to respect and value others.) Parties, vacations, romance, sports and playful times with children are on your menu. Yay you!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

There’s  no question that you begin this new year with a firm resolve to pull your act together. You want to be organized, efficient and on top of your scene. You want to get the most bang for your buck by making your efforts and actions count. You will extend these high standards to your health as well, which is why many of you will embrace a new exercise regime and start to eat healthier. (A balanced diet is a hotdog in each hand.) And while you’re doing these wonderful things and making these ambitious plans, you will still entertain at home and ponder ideas about how to improve your home. Oh yes. This will be one of your big projects this year!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Lucky Virgos! This week is all about fun, romance, flirtations, parties, social diversions, sports events and fun activities with children. You are in touch with your Muse, which means you will have no trouble expressing your creativity and your talents. You will also be aggressive about going after what you want! For example, if you set your sites on someone, you will make the first move. You will extend invitations to others. Not only will all this fun stuff be a top priority, this week you will also notice your optimism growing within you. At first, you might not recognize it. What is that strange feeling? Hmmm, this feels so familiar. (pause) OMG! It’s happiness!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This week your focus will be on home, family and your private life; in large measure because you are determined to beautify your digs. You want to make where you live feel more comfortable andinviting in a casual, elegant way. (You love beautiful surroundings.) And you will make a big effort to do this! You might also buy something beautiful for where you live. For some, this interest will extend into exploring realestate opportunities because while you consider some of these domestic and real-estate issues, you are also thinking of ways to boost your earnings. Naturally! That’s one of the things you’re going to do this year! Ka-ching!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a busy, fast-paced week! Grab your rollerskates and get out the door. Short trips, errands, shopping, reading, writing and studying plus talking to everyone are just some of the things that will create a jam-packed schedule for you. You will notice that the pace of this week will accelerate as you start juggling everything. But you can do it because lucky Jupiter is now in your sign where it will stay for this year (and this is happening for the first time in 12 years). It’s a wonderful blessing! It boosts your confidence! It makes you feel content and appreciative of what you have. Plus it attracts good fortune to you! Let the good times roll!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

“Show me the money!” Oh wow – five planets are sitting in one of your money houses – specifically your House of Earnings. This means most of you will have a chance to boost your income or figure out a way to make money on the side or get a better paying job. You will be focused and aggressive about going after this and the doors of opportunity will open for you. Yes, timing is everything. The key for your success is you have to figure what is that you really want? Define your values. You don’t want to be waiting at the train station when your ship comes in. Start to figure this out because lucky Jupiter will enter your sign at the end of this year! Get it together before then. “Gentlemen, start your engines.”

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Well, it’s obviously all about you, dear Capricorn with five planets in your sign. (Slightly embarrassing, isn’t it?) Just use this planetary phenomena to your advantage. You will attract people and favourable circumstances to you this week, which means you should act on this opportunity. You will also be energetic and aggressive about going after you want because Mars boosts your verve and drive! Use this to your advantage! Meanwhile, this is an excellent week to buy wonderful wardrobe treasures – preferably high end labels on sale. What a coup! You can do this! In addition, new friends will come into your life along with invitations to join clubs, groups and associations. Enjoy your increasing popularity!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Jupiter is lready at the top of your chart, which is why you’re starting to look fabulous to everyone. The success that will come to you this year is already apparent, (well, at least, it is to me). Ironically, this week you will choose to be low profile and work behind the scenes or even work alone because this is your preference. Some of you will be involved in secret activities and yes, secret love affairs (you devil.) Nevertheless, younger people will be involved in your life this week and even your behind the scenes activities will draw attention to you in a positive way. No matter how quiet you try to be – you will shine! But be careful when dealing with others this week. If you think something fishy is going on – it is. Trust your Spidey sense!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a popular week! Suddenly, everyone wants to see your face! Yes, your dance card is full. Enjoy schmoozing with creative, artistic people. You might also be physically involved in sports or outdoors activities because some of you will be competitive with someone or another team or a group. This is the perfect week to share your hopes and dreams for the future with someone so that their feedback can help you. In turn, this can lead to your ability to define goals for this year. Of course, you’re going to travel and focus on education but you have to get more specific, don’t you? For example, where are you going to travel? What are you going to study and learn that is new and fascinating? (Exciting possibilities!)
