All Signs: Saturn is in its own sign Capricorn from Dec. 2017 to Dec. 2020. Saturn represents the status quo, the government plus borders and boundaries. Like a sneak preview, Saturn slipped into the next sign Aquarius in March this year, then returned to Capricorn three weeks ago. In mid Dec. Saturn will move into Aquarius again, this time to stay until 2023. This heralds a huge change! Aquarius is revolutionary! The last time Saturn was in Aquarius, the Cold War ended, the Soviet Union broke up, Russia elected its first democratically elected president and South Africa repealed Apartheid. (1991-1993). Change and innovation are coming! (Relax: If you put out fresh flowers you don’t have to dust.)
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You have lots of energy because your ruler Mars is in your sign, where it will stay for the rest of year. (This is most unusual! The last time this particular phenomenon occurred was in 1988. Yes, I will keep reminding you.) Meanwhile, the placement of the Sun encourages lighthearted relationships, parties, social interactions, active sports, hot romance, entertaining diversions and fun activities with kids. Note: The end of the week is an accident-prone time for your kids as well as sports so pay attention to everything. That also will be the classic time for sudden changes in social situations – surprise invitations or cancellations.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Life is good. You can attract money to you now. In fact, many of you are spending more money than usual on beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. You have a strong focus right now on home, family and your private life. Some of you are involved more than usual with a parent. Be careful towards the end of the week because some kind of upset on the home front or an unexpected surprise might catch you off guard. Be patient with parents and authority figures. Meanwhile, you have a busy pace this week because short trips, conversations with others plus reading, writing and studying will fill your time. Near the end of the week, avoid arguments, which are really just power struggles. Phffft!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Your busy pace continues this week because you have an ambitious To Do list. Not only are you reading and studying more than usual, you are talking to siblings and neighbours plus taking little diversionary trips. You are even more chatty than usual. Many of you will have financial discussions with others. With Venus in your sign now, of course you are charming and diplomatic with everyone; nevertheless, you will make your point! You’re also very goal oriented at this time, which is why you are thinking about your priorities for the future. Toward the end of the week, avoid financial arguments and be extra vigilant to avoid accidents. Forewarned is forearmed!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
It’s still all about the money for you this week: money, possessions and your assets. You’re giving this a lot of thought plus you’re thinking about your values as well. Please be aware that towards the end of the week, some kind of surprise or something unexpected will impact your earnings, your wealth or your possessions. (You might find yourself at odds with a partner or close friend.) Meanwhile, your ambition is aroused and will continue to be strong and forthright until the end of the year! No matter what happens, you will work hard to achieve your goals. Please be mindful and aware and do not ignore or overlook the needs of others, which is certainly not your style – but right now you mean business!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You are blessed this week with the Sun in your sign giving you a chance to re-energize and replenish yourself. Relations with friends and groups are warm and friendly because Venus makes you loving and affectionate with others. In fact, this is a lovely time to socialize with friends and groups in person or online. You continue to want to travel or explore and expand your horizons in some way, which is why you want to get out and do something different. However, be aware that as the weekend approaches something sudden or unexpected might upset your routine. It could be a sudden argument, a car breaking down or something that interrupts your everyday routine. Stay chill. Even in bad times – good things can happen.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You will continue to prefer to stay in the wings, working alone or behind the scenes. You’re not being antisocial – it’s just your preference. Fortunately, relations with parents, bosses and VIPs are smooth because they see you in a positive light. In fact, their admiration for you is so strong, a romance with a boss might begin for some of you. Many of you are hanging out with younger people, which is why you might be enthusiastic about new ideas. Disputes about shared property, inheritances and insurance issues are still in the picture. This could be because of something that catches you off guard at the end of the week. All is good. You’re just fine.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
This is a social week because you want to enjoy the company of friends and groups, which is small wonder because after all, you are the most social sign in the zodiac! Nevertheless, with fiery Mars opposite your sign in your House of Marriage and Partnerships, you have to remain calm when dealing with those who are closest to you. They might seem to be annoying. If you react, then they will react and then before you know it, you’re arguing. This does not promote your happiness, does it? For your own good, rise above this. Carpe Diem! “Seize the day!” Enjoy whatever is good in life all around you and be patient with others. Remember: You will never again be as young as you are today!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
The Sun is still at the top of your chart casting you in a flattering spotlight. (Remember that this happens only once a year for four weeks.) This makes you look wonderful in the eyes of others, especially bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. Obviously, you can use this to your advantage, which is why this is a good week to make your pitch or do what you can to advance your agenda. Nevertheless, steer clear of discussions about politics, religion and racial issues because arguments might arise, especially toward the end of the week. You’re working hard. This might also contribute to an argument with an authority figure by the weekend. Be patient: Like you, everyone has put their mask on one ear at a time.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Life is an adventure lately, which is why you want something exciting to happen! You want to travel and learn new things and meet new people and be stimulated by new ideas! Fortunately, relations with partners and close friends are lovely because fair Venus is opposite your sign this week. However, travel plans or matters related to publishing, the media, medicine and the law might surprise you or catch you off guard suddenly toward the end of the week. Your high-energy will continue (as it will for the rest of year), which is why you are seeking ways to express your creative talents. “I am!”
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
This continues to be an intense week for you, perhaps because things are topsy-turvy at home where something is happening to create increased activity, chaos or uncertainty for you. In turn, this can promote tension with family members. Fortunately, relations with coworkers are excellent. People will be supportive and friendly this week. Having said that, toward the end of the week, you might be at odds with a partner or close friend, possibly because of a sudden upset that impacts inheritances, shared wealth or the resources of your partner. Fear not, with lucky Jupiter in your sign, you have divine protection
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Continue to respect your need for more sleep and more rest because this is your reality. You are functioning on slightly less energy. Admittedly, your communications with others are forceful even persuasive but that’s just because you have a way with words. (Some not have way.) Despite your lower energy, you have many opportunities for fun this week. Creative activities are favoured because you need to express yourself! Romance is warm and reassuring. It’s also easier to relate to kids, which is why this is a great week for games and fun. Basically, you want to amuse yourself! Avoid arguments and upsets with partners and close friends at the end of the week. Anger serves no purpose except to make everyone miserable.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You will continue to bust your buns this week because you want to get a lot done and you want to do it well. You’re setting yourself high personal standards, which means you want to be efficient, organized and productive. You even want to improve your health! Some of this energy will spill over into efforts to redecorate and tweak your digs. You will also enjoy entertaining at home because you feel warm and social. Caution about spending too much money, which you might be tempted to do. Toward the end of the week, upsets at work might occur. Don’t let this spill over into arguments with kids or romantic partners. Chill out.
