Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
If this week were a race, you would be in the lead all week and the first to finish, Aries. With benevolent Jupiter blessing the first house of your chart, you may get so lucky that you take luck for granted. On the physical level, Jupiter can expand your waistline if you are not careful, so I suggest you expand your exercise routine as a preemptive strike. You have been working hard at career, stabilizing your relationships, and making people connections. This week, so many good things come so easily and so fast that the only downside I can see is a tendency toward a little too much pride, ego, or arrogance. What - Aries - arrogant? Everyone wants you to be the leader now. Show them they've made the right choice.
Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
It looks as though you have a secret plan, Taurus. Just recently, you rose to the top of your career or work environment and possibly took on a position of leadership. When you pay attention to things, you are a powerfully quick learner and the planets indicate you have already achieved a level of mastery or a full understanding of your position and field. Now what? While climbing the ladder, you made some astute observations and now you are mulling over what works and what does not. You may also be thinking that you can do something better yourself - and you are probably right. Being practical, you know the plans come first and then the financial backing. While you go through the required daily motions this week, you are busy working on those plans and the latter half of the week gives you an opportunity to present them to a potential backer.
Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
Gemini is a restless air sign that flits from one idea to the other. Currently, the planets are filling your mind with more words and ideas than you have time to translate into writing or other forms of creativity. The same planets are affecting you physically, too. Does life feel like a revolving door, Gemini? How the heck are you supposed to be creating or communicating when you have so many places to go and so many people wanting some of your time? And how can you get any real paying work accomplished when you don't have time? For your own sanity, you will have to make a day or two for yourself during the middle of this week or you could have a very dramatic public meltdown. There comes a point where nothing will get done any faster and nothing more productive can be done unless you are more grounded and serene. I have an image of a large overstuffed purse falling on the ground and all the contents spilling out. If the purse doesn't fall to the ground, the stuff inside might never get sorted and put back in an orderly fashion.
Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
Your sense of purpose and clear direction of last week carries over into this week, Cancer. All Cancers crave security. They like to know they have something for a rainy day. The planets indicate you will be striving for a strong, secure relationship, a happy home life, and your future business or investment plans to be ship-shape and proactive. It is possible that one of the ways you or a partner seek to increase income is through working more hours or overextending financially in a business one of you owns with the idea that doing so will bring bigger rewards at a later date. Depending on who is doing the overextending, the other may initially object or attempt to control the more exuberant party. Your weekend is a time to rest and, if you have a partner, to reconnect on the emotional and spiritual level. Your week may have been filled with paperwork and numbers, but the weekend should be full of soft music, soothing textures, and subtle aromas to calm you.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
You do your best work alone this week, Leo. The planets are making you passionate about your work and just a tad controlling and opinionated. Being right doesn't help you win the popularity contest, either. A boss or workmate who considers their methods superior to yours could be rubbed the wrong way when you logically and confidently go about things a different way. The flow of work goes much better when you can work by yourself or with someone who prefers you take the lead and give directions. The weekend is time to escape to a change of scenery with your mate or friends. After using your mental genius all week long to make plans or solve problems, you enjoy using your sharp wit to share jokes and stories and your curiosity to get to know people better.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Last week, when I wrote the astrological trends, I advised people to expect relationship endings. The beginning of your week could see an ending of a relationship of some kind, Virgo. There is a brief lunar aspect that suggests the possibility of an emotionally painful loss. Because astrology is a many-layered thing, it doesn't have to be a relationship with a person. It could also be a loss of something material, like money or a personal possession, or a way of living to which you've become attached. Money and business dealings figure prominently this week. The middle of the week is directed toward examining your finances and determining what plans you would like to make for long-term security. The analysis may help you come to a decision about a job or business you have considered pursuing or expanding.
Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
An interesting week is in store for you, Libra. Being a Libra, you thrive when you have other people around you to relate to and you will have plenty of opportunity to be social now. A mate or hidden aspects of yourself are encouraging you to grow beyond some rather rigid limitations you had put upon yourself in the past. The planets are stirring your imagination and creativity, causing you to be attracted to the unique and unusual in color, design, fashion, decor, music, and even people. After working so hard last year to appear more mature and established, now you may feel confused by this sudden urge to be uniquely different. The only permission you need to change your entire look is your own. Midweek brings the possibility of a material gift or financial windfall. A trip to an unusual location or meeting someone from another country could spark your interest in other cultures and their art may influence your own artistic expression.
Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
Some unsettled energy is moving back and forth between your thoughts and your health or work, Scorpio. Are you working too hard lately or is too much being expected of you? Do you have some fundamental differences with the company, the boss, or a coworker? Pay attention to your thoughts and environment and make any necessary adjustments. Situations ease naturally by the weekend, but taking action on anything causing you undue stress before it gets out of hand can protect your health and vitality. Your psychic abilities get a huge boost this weekend and you could enjoy connecting with other people who share your interests in spiritual or metaphysical subjects - maybe at a psychic fair or a spiritualist church, or an online forum? The conversations and experiences you share of otherworldly things make you feel less like a loner with a secret and more like you are part of a family with special talents and abilities.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Money could be burning a big hole in your pocket now, Sagittarius. The planets may have blessed you with an increase in income or a nice windfall and now you are finding many ways to spend, spend, spend. Unfortunately, you are under a kind of planetary spell that makes you believe you have the Midas touch and financial savvy, causing you to spend like there is no tomorrow. If you are not financially abundant, you may be feeling a strong desire for more money at the same time a false sense of being lucky is making you take stupid risks. Two good things may happen that help you steady yourself before you capsize: 1) A friend or organization offers you a job that keeps your mind off get-rich-quick schemes, 2) A mate or partner with less of an emotional charge around the money offers some wise advice and good guidance that you should consider before spending your money.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Keeping your work persona separate from your home persona will not be possible this week, Capricorn. You are so fully projecting a demanding, powerful but benevolent presence on the job that you can't crank it down or turn it off at home. You may be in such demand that you are still working on your off hours by phone or computer. Time off the clock could also be spent in creative brainstorming. What is driving you to work so many hours and pursue ideas? The planets have you thinking and dreaming about money and chasing multiple streams of income. You have the stamina and determination now to do both your day job and start up a few side jobs, as well. Studying marketing or Internet sales can be more entertaining than TV now. Your mate or partner could be doing the admiring or giving you the attention now, but you find romantic overtures to be more of a disruptive distraction than a pleasurable escape this week.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
With all the planets in your sign now, Aquarius, you should be flying high and moving at the speed of light toward a better future. Before you can fully utilize that trailblazing Aquarian energy, you must dig a little deeper into old pain and fear until you find what thoughts are holding you back. The planets that are showing me you still have yucky stuff in the way of manifesting what you want leave no room for any interpretation other than old, painful stuff pulling the strings of your present thoughts. The good news is that you will identify those thoughts and feelings over the course of the week as you think or write about the past. A healing breakthrough is followed by self-love and self-acceptance. The Grand Trine in air this weekend gives you a fresh new state of mind that allows abundance to flow.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Not everyone can go live in an ashram or monastery, Pisces, but there are other living situations, like co-ops and intentional communities, that are the right environment for people who feel communal living is healthier and happier than living a typical Western lifestyle. If you have the time or inclination to try a communal lifestyle, you may find it to be satisfying to your soul now. You are looking for something different and swimming in the mainstream can drown you. Don't put all your money into any one group this week or follow a friend's financial advice, even if you think you have chosen a good investment firm or your friend seems prosperous. Working from home now may be the best way for you to align yourself with the planets, especially if you do any kind of alternative healing or counseling work. Your home can be your ashram and your clients your intentional community.
