All Signs: Around Nov. 23 – three weeks from now – Mercury starts slowing down before it goes retrograde at the beginning of Dec. (Relative to planet Earth.) This means if you’re shopping for the Holiday season, you should know you only have three weeks to buy “Mercury -related items.” It’s okay to buy anything else in Dec. but don’t buy Mercury -related items after Nov. 23. What are Mercury -related items? Anything to do with ground transportation and communications – cars, trucks, bikes, computers, printers and cell phones. Yup – computers and cell phones. If you’re planning to give this kind of a gift – you would be wise to buy it in the next three weeks. Or wait until Jan. 11, 2018. Obviously, this only applies to big-ticket items. I wouldn’t be afraid buy a pencil.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This is a sexy week for you! Romantic relationships will have a greater intensity to them. New relationships that begin now will be impacting. This is because Venus is in your Eighth House of Sex and Money. This really heats up romance! But it can also attract money to you through your spouse or business partner. This is an excellent time to try for a loan or a mortgage. Having said this, Mars will be opposite your sign, which can create tension in relationships. (This could be great for make-up sex.) Whatever the case, sex and money will be on your mind – no question. Some of you will also start to make travel plans for the future – something fun!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This week the Sun, Venus and Jupiter are opposite from your sign, which is good news! This polarized position makes you think about your partnerships and close friendships more than usual. Not only will you think about these relationships, you will want to talk to these people about the relationship itself. Venus, of course, will help these encounters to work out smoothly. You can easily express affection and make your feelings clear to someone now. You will also understand their needs. If it’s a time of conflict – this is a fine tie to mend broken fences.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
An influence from last week continues to be in play this week, which is: You want to play and you want to work! You want both! Fiery Mars definitely wants you to kick up your heels and fun. It encourages competition in sports and a playful, supportive energy in general. Physical lovemaking will be important because you want to express your “true self.” You have lots of energy for passionate pleasure! Nevertheless, the Sun, Jupiter and Venus want you to excel at work. They will even bring opportunities for you to explore a new job or improve your current job. Either way – you win! (Classic twins in action.)
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
“I gotta be me!” Your desire to express yourself freely and get out and have a good time continues! The Sun, Venus and Jupiter are teamed up to urge you to express your creative talents. After all, this is the best month all year to explore parties and entertaining diversions. Nevertheless, fiery Mars is now travelling across the bottom of your chart; and Mars is energy. (Wherever it is in your chart it brings energy and activity.) For your sign, Mars now creates arguments and disputes at home about practically anything! You might find yourself fighting about something you don’t even care about. (Whaaat?) Living with parents will be challenging. Keep in mind this is a temporary thing. In a month this is past history. (Whew!)
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Your focus on family, home and your private life continues. You have decorating urges or ideas for how to improve where you live. Plus you’re preparing for winter! You know that it wasn’t raining when Noah built his ark. Yup — plan ahead! Meanwhile, the energy of Mars pumps your everyday communications and everyday tasks. It gives you high energy and makes you verbally aggressive, which might trigger arguments with others. Mars also makes you identify with your beliefs to the extent you want to convince others to see your point of view. Be mindful that this influence. Remember to be gentle. Remember to listen. Remember the power of simple courtesy.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Your fast-paced tempo continues! Short trips, increased reading and writing plus a desire to talk to others, especially siblings and relatives, keep you on the go now. Family discussions and home repairs are also on your Virgo menu. But when we look at Mars, we see it is travelling through one of your money houses – specifically your House of Earnings and Possessions. Because Mars is associated with the ego, right now, you will feel that money and wealth make you a better person. And if you don’t have money and wealth – you’re less. It’s as if you are what you have. But hey – you are what you are! Simple as that. Even Popeye knew that. “I yam what I yam!”
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Your focus on money, earnings and cash flow continues. You’re thinking about your income and how well you can live on what you have. You’re definitely pondering beautiful purchases. Fortunately, many of you have ideas about how you can boost your earnings; and this is entirely possible because Venus will attract money to you now. Plus you’re full of ideas! Much of this is due to a deeper concern that you have, which is that you want to solidify your home base. You want to secure your refuge plus create something solid for your family as well. With Mars in your sign until mid Dec., you’ve got energy to burn, which means you are going to hustle and get things done! No moss growing on you!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Well, you’re sitting pretty with the Sun, Venus and Jupiter in your sign giving you divine protection and energy! These planets actually attract wealth and favours to you! This week is also an excellent time to buy wardrobe treasures. Meanwhile, busy Mercury is in your House of Earnings making you think about money, assets, wealth and whatever you value in life. It’s sad and curious that we often don’t really know what we value and then only discover it after we lose it. Now is the perfect time to think about your attitude to money because your attitude towards anything affects how it manifests in your life.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
The Sun, Venus and Jupiter are hiding in your chart, which means you too, want to be low key and work behind the scenes. Some will also have a secret relationship that you want to keep private. However contrasting this, Mars urges you to interact with friends, clubs and associations, especially in a competitive, aggressive way. You want to grab the baton and run! Similarly, Mercury in your own sign, makes you want to get out there and talk to everyone! Yada, yada, yada. Your mind is busy jumping from issue to issue. Mercury also makes you want to get out and travel – mostly short trips. You will certainly put a lot of yourself into whatever you say!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Your popularity continues, dear Capricorn. Enjoy the company of friends as well as clubs and associations. Enjoy the company of artistic, creative people. Fiery Mars is still travelling across the top of your chart, arousing your ambition and making you work hard. You prefer to be your own boss because you want to work at your own pace plus you want the credit for what you do! Nevertheless, avoid conflict with coworkers. They might feel threatened by your work ethic. This is not what you intend; it’s just that you are gung ho to achieve certain objectives. Nothing wrong with that.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
A gaggle of planets is still at the top of your chart calling attention to you. People notice you! And they see you in a flattering light. They admire you! Obviously, you can use this to your advantage. Some of you might even strike up a romance with a boss or someone in a position of power. Meanwhile, Mars ignites your desire to travel and get more out of life. You want to see the world. And if you cannot travel, you want to study more about the world because you want to learn, explore and expand your knowledge of everything. Many of you have scientific minds along with high-tech capabilities. (Aquarius is the sign that rules computers and science.)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
This is a lovely time for you because you want to explore everything around you! You want to learn, you want to study, you want to travel, you want to meet people from different backgrounds. Basically, you want to expand your appreciation of life! That’s why this is a great time to go to school or university. It’s also a fantastic time to travel. The placement of Mars heightens your sex drive this month. However, it can also trigger disputes about shared property and inheritances. Mercury at the top of your chart, makes this the perfect time to plot your career and choose which techniques to learn. It’s also a strong time for you to talk to bosses and VIPs. Your sign is very favoured! (Wanna come to my house for dinner?)
