Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
The theme of interconnection with others continues for you this week, Aries. As you’ve become more receptive to the needs of others and more aware of the problems and struggles people are facing, you may have become something of an expert at solving problems or finding ways to assist others. Some Rams may have joined an organization that helps the earth, people, or animals. Whatever the situation, it seems you’ve become a leader or expert who is in high demand. While this is not a bad thing, it may be that you are doing more work for which you receive little or no pay and the rest of your life is suffering from a lack of time and attention. The needs of the world and your own life seem never ending and the demand greater than you can physically handle. You may feel like you are bailing a sinking boat with a thimble when it requires a bucket. The planets currently make you extremely empathetic and nebulous. Boundaries are rarely an Aries issue. Most people sense the fire nature and would never consider imposing on Aries – and if they do, Aries is never one to be quiet about an imposition! Some strong water is subduing that fire now and it will require conscious effort on your part to draw the lines of demarcation that limit how much of your time someone can receive. Strange as it may sound to an action-oriented person like yourself, you can accomplish more good deeds for humankind and the planet now on the inner planes through prayer and meditation than by physical doing. The more you take time to go within, the more in control you feel.
Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
Love can be a powerful creative force, Taurus. Whether your passion is a person or a project, it looks like love is lifting you to higher thoughts and pumping up your risk-taking muscle. I know you Bulls look before you leap and usually want a guarantee and extended warranty before venturing forth, but right now intuition and passion have more weight than cold logic when it comes to your decisions. The flow you are moving in now benefits a business, large group, or organization. You are so content to be creating and sharing that you may not be protecting your work properly. Make sure you get credit where it is due and keep clear records, copies, etc. The work you do now may not seem so valuable in the moment, but it can be a leveraging tool for your career in the future. Be sure you can list it in your resume. The relationship with your lover or your project is at the fascinating, mutually intimate stage of unveiling and sharing secrets and similarities.
Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
You may find your interest in metaphysics and New Age subjects growing now, Gemini. Swimming in the mainstream may feel more like spiritual drowning. The mind/body connection as it affects health may lead you to explore and use modalities or techniques that give you a better sense of physical well-being. Specifically, learning to balance the chakras and work with kundalini energy, yoga, or Tantra may bring you to new levels of confidence and inner power. Sharing your new “out there” interests will shake up both your business life and your personal life. You may find new friends who encourage you to grow and expand personally and professionally. You may also experience some backlash from family members or old friends who think you’ve gone off the deep end. It may cause you some confusion or discomfort if people you love don’t seem to like your new interests. Please don’t waste time or breath explaining, arguing, or justifying. Continue to follow your heart and accept your own choices. When you love and accept yourself, the world around you reflects love and acceptance back to you.
Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
Relationship planets are sharing your element now, Cancer, which turns your thoughts to romance. The planets are also encouraging travel. If I were a Cancer, this is what I would do now: Plan my honeymoon trip, take a second honeymoon, or book a trip to somewhere where the accent turns me on – and flirt like mad when I get there – which is almost anywhere but where I am now! An opportunity to advance your education may also present itself. Work may tell you that now is not a good time to run away and “play,” but reasons why you can’t follow your dream are not based on hard fact. If you take a chance to expand your horizons through either travel or higher education, you will bring back far more to your career and future than if you choose not to do so. Love and romance are the gravy now – travel and education are the main dish.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
Security for your home and family drives you to work hard now, Leo. You’ve got your kingly castle thing going on now and you may be thinking of installing a moat and drawbridge to keep the world out. Much of your thought now goes into ways to maximize your money and expand your business so that your castle and subjects are safe. The king needs a queen, too – or the queen needs a king. You may escape the stresses of life through sharing time with your partner, taking comfort and pleasure in having someone by your side. For single Leos, the yearning to find a mate may be strong now. Even if you are busy with home and work, your mind is reaching out and intending your mate toward you now. Either your mate or a potential partner may express some philosophic views that are outside of your usual thought stream. A new look at life is not necessarily a wrong look at life. Leos like a certain degree of control and feel most confident in familiar settings and situations. When Leo enters new territory of any kind, the momentary vulnerability that comes with exploring the unknown is what flips the switch to activate Leo’s famed courage. Welcome the opportunity to draw on your reserve of courage this week.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
You are in your high season now, Virgo. Caring for yourself, your body and health, and your home are most important to you. The planets are also blessing you with a vivid imagination and a persuasive voice. Single Virgos may find themselves talking, flirting, and maybe dating someone for whom they have a strong sexual attraction. When the moment arrives to take things to a more intimate level, feelings of panic and self preservation may arise. Ask yourself if your partner encourages you to be more of yourself or limits or diminishes you in any way. That can be your compass to help you decide what to do in any relationship. You are more than willing to do the work of relating, but you are not prepared to sacrifice yourself to the relationship. Engaging in a craft or hobby that uses natural materials like wood, clay, dried plant matter, or wool can be good therapy and extremely satisfying.
Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
While your tastes are seldom extreme, Libra, you are often attracted to items of high quality and exclusivity. You may find yourself unable to resist buying luxurious clothing or home decor now. Indulge yourself within reason, but avoid racking up debt. Remember the story of the grasshopper who played his fiddle all summer while the ants were busy storing food for winter? Like that grasshopper, you have a tendency now to get caught up in the pleasures of the season and the moment, forgetting that your money must take care of necessities as well as pleasure. Too much time spent eating rich food, drinking alcohol, or excessively using any substances that medicate or alter your mind can be detrimental to your general health now. Mindfulness and moderation keep you on track. When it comes to love and romance, you are easily swayed now by all the aspects of the lover that are not really the important ones that count. You can too easily get caught up in scent, eye candy, and tall tales. Right now you see your mate or potential partner through rose colored glasses and are feeling so romantic that you will spend all and do all for love.
Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
Your reputation for being the sexiest sign of the zodiac is not unfounded, Scorpio. Put on your best black leather and mingle now, unless you already have a partner who is the jealous type. If you do have a jealous partner, you might want to warn them ahead of time that you are a magnet for lust and attention, and not to blame you when hotties are hanging around you like bees around a flower. Blame it on the planets. Your social life in general should be much more active than usual and you keep your shy side well hidden from the crowd. Creative Scorpios showcasing their talents may get some stage fright when they find themselves in front of a bigger audience than they’ve ever seen before. Don’t be afraid to take on more than you think you can handle when it comes to creative expression or artistic endeavors. Your speaking voice is magnetic and powerful now and when you converse with others, they feel as though you understand them emotionally, which is why everyone is clamoring to be with you.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
This week signals the beginning of an end, Sagittarius. Relax, that is not as ominous as it may sound. You feel the fall weather settling in now and your energy is tuning into the planets that are bringing cycles of completion to your own solar year. Now is not the time to launch entirely new projects. It is a busy career time for you, but your work time is best spent bringing all projects and plans to their close or delegating tasks to others. If you haven’t taken some vacation time for yourself yet this summer, this week is a perfect time to go somewhere quiet, possibly near water, to unwind. You are in the mood to review and digest now before the dark days of winter and the madness of the holiday season creep up on you. Have you been so busy that even connecting with your friends feels like work? Work may want you to keep in touch while you are incommunicado. If you absolutely must stay connected to the job, keep it to a short time frame daily and don’t bend the rules or make exceptions. You deserve your free time and it should feel free or you might as well be working.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Are you surprised at yourself, Capricorn? A download of new planetary energy is making you feel a bit more primal than proper. Maybe you’ve decided to take that African dance class or you bought a book on cooking with aphrodisiac foods and you are planning a dinner seduction. Somehow or other, you feel more like grooving with a group or a favorite friend than being solo now. If it’s ethnic, foreign, shocking, or eclectic, you are willing to spend your time and money on it, even if it mystifies, confuses, or terrifies you. That’s the point, isn’t it? Spend some money on infusing new life into your wardrobe. If you really want to shift internally, take a friend shopping and ask them to pick out what THEY would like to see you wear. Dress-down Friday? How about wearing tie-dye or a dashiki? Put your iron away and skip the dry cleaner this week.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Your week begins with a focus on career and business with the world at large, Aquarius. Midweek, you pause for some time to yourself in order to sort things out and decide what to do about something. By the end of the week, you are ready to begin something new. Expanding in business now may require partnering with someone or seeking capital. Money spent on acquiring more skills or knowledge is well spent. Money spent on branding, image, or advertising may never be justified or yield a return on your investment. Spending your time making personal connections with people who share your passion may not yield immediate dollars, but creates the potential for long term business growth. Express your spirituality in your business. Invite Spirit to be CEO of your company and ask for Divine leadership and guidance – and maybe a cash advance or sign-on bonus!
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Dear Pisces, you are swimming in some murky water now. Please think long and hard before making any radical changes in your life, especially concerning relationships. There is a possibility that what is tried and true has become old, stifling, or boring to you. There is a chance that a certain someone who is larger than life, very charismatic and sexy has caught your attention. Take care – the planets are inclining you toward passion and romance, dreams of fated love, and misplaced affection while at the same time making you dangerously erratic and rebellious in behavior. You’ve got the “Devil may care” energy and you are tempted to wreak some havoc just because you can or to prove a point. Avoid making assumptions about others’ feelings toward you and you will not be disappointed if things don’t progress as you might like. Use this energy now to write the next great love song or romance novel rather than turning your life upside down.
