Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
Your thoughts and actions this week revolve around you and things that immediately concern you, Aries. You may be entering a new phase of relationship and as you share the news with others, you find that not all your friends are happy about “losing” you. Their perceptions of your beloved and the choices you are making with your life now are colored by their own attachments and dependency upon you. Actually, changes in your relationships now are ultimately liberating and energizing for everyone concerned, even if it feels strange or disruptive at this moment. Some health advice you receive or work rules you must adhere to may not be to your liking initially, but once you get over your immediate emotional resistance, you see the reason and can keep your focus on the desired outcome rather than the inconvenience. When you declare your love of life, the love you have for yourself and those you love, you feel like you rule the world – and you do.
Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
An interesting week is ahead for you, Taurus. Over the course of things first going your way, then maybe not going exactly as you had intended, you learn some valuable lessons about yourself and your need for acceptance and approval. At times, your creativity may be recognized and at other times, you may be overlooked, ignored, or criticized. The key lesson you learn this week is that your happiness and self worth are not dependent on any person, place, thing, or circumstance. You may notice that as soon as you decide to continue doing what makes you happy, perhaps investing your own time and money into a project that no one else wanted to back or support, that suddenly others take notice and are eager to follow along. Keeping love as the only option in all endeavors and exchanges makes you feel extremely valuable to yourself and all others.
Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
Even though you are extremely adaptable and open-minded, Gemini, you may find yourself judging a person or group who has a life view much different than your own. Despite this, you are able to find common ground and perhaps broaden your mind. Your initial adverse reaction and subsequent acceptance of this new way of thinking may cause you to closely examine your root beliefs and upbringing. Why do you still use something that may not work well for you or limits your potential? Not everything passed down through families is a beneficial inheritance. As your spirituality shifts, you may experience a minor existential crisis over money, which is an opportunity for a powerful transformation that points you toward more heart-centered money making and management.
Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
A friend or group may be relying heavily on your nurturing qualities, Cancer. They know your concern for the welfare of others keeps your mind busy finding the ways to keep the sustenance flowing and drives you to success. You don’t mind working hard for others when they are busy working hard, too, but right now someone may be counting more on your sense of responsibility than their own. You may be asked to loan or invest money. After giving it some thought, you will probably decide to hang on to what you’ve got and lend moral, rather than financial, support. This decision on your part could be met with some strong negative emotion, but ultimately the freedom and space you create in all your relationships now allows love to change in an exciting way. If you have ever weaned a nursing child or animal, you will be intuitively aware of this.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
Advancement and adaptation to new responsibilities are possible for you at work, Leo. A strong desire for more income has taken you out of your comfort zone and you accept a position that requires you to work with a larger group of people. One of your biggest challenges in work may be marketing to the many or having to consider the needs and personalities of other workers you must now manage – and for whose performance you will be held accountable. Handling a business of any kind skillfully sometimes requires doing the parts of the business you would rather avoid for whatever reason. This week, you may find that success means doing some things that you were able to avoid when you were less successful. If you think about it, the word “success” is an active word that means a continual moving ahead. Those who love you may have to put up with some big cat growling or roaring at home as you adjust to your new role. Once you release your fear and resistance at work, you find you love the stimulating excitement new challenges bring and you are so glad you let go of the old.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Travel or education plans may be made this week, Virgo. While exploring the various places you might like to go, though, you come up against various reasons why the trip or school is just not practical or the dream place you imagined. Perhaps you have to give up some creature comforts or share space with a roommate in order to make the dream a reality, but your own list of essentials for comfortable travel or living is too demanding. You may decide to shelve those plans and just wait out your nemesis, Mercury retrograde. This Mercury retrograde has been directing your attention to both the inner and outer you. The more concentrated, no-nonsense Virgo essence you carry in your energy field now may be too much for some friends. If anyone comes to you looking for sympathy or commiseration, they are likely to hear you tell them to get over it and get on with it. Yes, you are a bit prickly now, but you are loving yourself too much to take on any stress or problems on behalf of anyone, no matter how much you love them. A care-less attitude may help you meet a new lover unexpectedly – because you could care less if you do or you don’t – or make a current relationship more unpredictably exciting because you could care less if they are around or they are not.
Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
Purchasing that antique sofa or vintage dress may not be a good idea now, Libra. In addition to being your usually impressionable self, you are also at your most intuitive and empathetic right now. Wearing clothes that belonged to another person or using anything glommed up with old energy can have you acting and talking like a possessed walk-in. Seriously, sea salt baths are in order now. An urge to merge and lose your boundaries of self may lead you into believing an encounter is the love of your life. Deep down, you know they have nothing for you that you don’t already have within yourself and you may have some second thoughts if you follow an impulse. This may not be the best week to make serious relationship changes or decisions, but it could be that some things are unfolding on their own and that you have little control over other key players. If the sparks of love are flying between you and a co-worker, you may be pushed to walk away from the job or walk away from the romance. In any scenario, the planets indicate love as being a force for sudden change in work or how you sustain and care for your health and well being. Yes, it could be a slightly crazy week, but I think you’ll enjoy it.
Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
A visit to an art gallery or some kind of artistic presentation may inspire dormant creative urges, Scorpio. Either you share these feelings with your mate or you spend some time examining this hidden aspect of yourself. Pursuing a new activity may require some adjustments on the home front. Some of your family time and maybe even some space at home must be set aside in order for you to give this urge a chance to express. Once you begin to allow your creativity to unfold, the difference in your passion and zest for life will impact work, family, your health, and more. You’ve been carrying so much deep inside you that you haven’t had words for. Now you have a means to share what you are feeling in a way that makes you feel excited, not exposed.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
When duty calls, you are there. Your mate may not like the extra time you are spending on the job and misses your conversation and companionship the most. You are a great thinker, Sagittarius, and it could be you haven’t been receiving the credit for your inspiring ideas at work or you’ve been giving away your intellectual work for free. The harsh reality of needing to feed and care for yourself or your family more easily may push you into making an emotional declaration of your value and worth. When you affirm greater worth, you invite ways to change and add value to your life. An opportunity to travel, further your education, or learn new skills may bring about a new home life as well. Traveling may require that someone be a care taker for your home or pets. You may invite a friend to live with you so that less of your income goes toward housing expenses. Your creative mind can find numerous ways to have more and be more now.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
With more pay comes extra demand for more performance. That’s no biggie for you, Capricorn. You love work so much that you even add the kind of structure to your leisure activities that make play look like work to the rest of us. For a short time this week, you may be wondering if you’ve taken on far more than you can handle and some panic or outright fear could set in. The expression “necessity is the mother of invention” comes to my mind. I see you having a major genius mental breakthrough that sets you up to work smarter, not harder, as you laugh your way to the bank. Well, maybe more like the hint of a smile on your face as you drive to the bank in your new company car while “Smooth Operator” plays on the sound system.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
You are particularly emotional, psychic, and sensitive now, Aquarius. Although you can easily “read” for others, the messages you receive for yourself are not always clear now, and your emotions may muddle things further. Your best way to keep yourself grounded and balanced is to give equal time to your intellect. Read and write, do crossword puzzles or Sudoku – anything to keep your mind sharp and your emotions steady. I recommend writing sentences that begin “I love…,” “I am…,” “My life is…,” “My body is…,” “Money is…” and see what happens. An intense awareness of the subconscious soundtrack that has been running your life may occur. By re-writing the script in the form of a passionate love letter to yourself, you trigger sudden changes in your ability to attract abundance.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Romantic confusion is possible at some point this week, Pisces. Conversations with the one you love about how you feel or thoughts in general about love may take up a great deal of your waking hours. Then, just as you think you have found a new level of intimacy and understanding, you may feel lost, alone, or far, far away. “How can that be,” you may wonder, after what seemed like such a level of harmony was reached. Please be aware that the feeling may be strong, but it is of short duration. Following the feeling of the big empty comes a new and rather unique feeling that might be best called agape. You suddenly realize that no one person can fill that emptiness and that all the love you could ever need or want is within you. Your love for others expands along with this awareness. Whoa – is this enlightenment? Quite possibly, it is.
