All Signs: This week stern Saturn dances with wild, wacky Uranus, which triggers a wake-up call for everyone. This is an excellent time to make changes because they will be done methodically and smoothly. These changes will be well planned and yet, swift. Ironically, we will take on more responsibilities, and at the same time, have more freedom. (Go figure.) It’s a time of “firsts” for structural changes in our lives. But hey, before we make these changes, let’s take a moment right now to take stock. Not literally of course, because that would be cattle rustling.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This is an excellent time for you to make decisions about future travel plans. And likewise, to also make decisions about future plans for further education and training. Perhaps you can see ways to make headway in areas connected with publishing, the media, medicine or the law? In the late 90s, you reinvented yourself; and since 2010, you have been heading for a time of success and culmination. Do what you can now to finish this momentum. (Do note that this is the perfect week to shop for wardrobe items.)
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The big thing in your favour is that this is your year to not only boost your health, but also to get a better paying job or to improve your existing job. That’s a fact. Right now, you are empowered with both the Sun and Mercury in your sign. This makes you eager to talk to others, especially regarding matters about earning money. (And for many of you, spending money!) Since 1999, your life has been on a certain course. Changes between 2003-05 demanded that you settle down between 2005-08. Now you need to settle financial matters so that you can move forward to a career peak in 2020.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Work alone or behind the scenes right now and use this time to think about what your goals will be for your new year, which begins at your birthday. One thing is certain, partnerships and close friendships have been challenging since 2015. In fact, at times, things have been so tough you wanted to call it quits – and perhaps many of you did. This tension will not subside until 2018. Fortunately, this year is a year vacation, fun, colourful sports events and joy with children, which makes it easy to deal with challenging partnerships. Right now, Mars in your sign makes you powerful and active. You hold the cards!

Furthermore, many of you are making headway with bosses, parents and VIPs, even to the extent of having a romantic connection. You gave up a lot around the turn of the century so that you could reinvent your life between 2003-10. At this time, you are working hard. In fact, at times, you feel overwhelmed. Nevertheless, you have a chance to create your dream home and benefit from real estate and family matters this year. Make the most of this because you won’t have this kind of opportunity again for over a decade. Act now.

You gave up a lot around 2003– 05. More recently, between 2012-15, major changes took place at the core of your family and home. At this stage of your life, children are an increased responsibility, regardless of the their age. However, you must begin to lay the groundwork to expand your home (and family next year. This will be a source of joy!

It might come swiftly. It might be unexpected. But it will be appreciated and it will be necessary. At this stage, you need to figure out where to live and establish a strong base for yourself so that you can sally fourth for future successes.
