All Signs: This is a strong time for the Earth Signs – Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. Not only is the Sun in an Earth Sign for the next four weeks, (along with Mercury for the next two weeks); Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter are also in Earth signs. Even Neptune and Venus in Water Signs are favourable to Earth Signs. “Elementary, my dear Watson.” Actually, this makes it a copasetic week for all signs. Kinda like – “What’s good for the bee is good for the swarm.” (This has little to do with, “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander” and nothing to do with “Your goose is cooked!”
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Despite this emphasis on Earth signs, fiery Mars, your ruler, continues to be in your sign (as it will be for the rest of the year) pumping you with energy and making you aggressive, proactive and confident! This will be particularly obvious in the next four weeks, as you begin to work harder than ever to accomplish what you want to get done. In the month ahead, not only do you want to work hard you want to work smarter. In other words, you want to get better organized in every aspect of your life. Your focus will be on efficiency and effectiveness, and you will strive to make every action count. Because you’re setting the bar so high, you want to improve your health as well! “I want it all!” (And why not?)
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You’ll be going gangbusters in the next four weeks because you are an Earth sign, and there is a huge beneficial energy for the Earth Signs right now. Specifically, the Sun will urge you to play and have fun! You will want the freedom to express yourself and do your own thing. This is why you will focus on amusing diversions and recreational pursuits! You will be free-spirited and your relationships will feel lighter than usual. Relations with children will improve. Romance will be fun and pleasurable. You will be more inclined to use your mind for amusing past times like reading, writing, playing games and doing puzzles. You won’t feel you have to justify whatever you do with a practical reason.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You will prefer to hide and cocoon at home during the next four weeks. You might also be more involved with a parent than usual. You will feel happy to be in familiar surroundings. You will enjoy private time for contemplation. Many of you will be reminded of past memories from your youth. In fact, you might find it reassuring to talk to a counsellor or good friend at this time because you will tend to want to do some psychological self-evaluation. Family discussions and a focus on home repairs will also be likely. Fortunately, you will attract money to you in the next few weeks. And you will also want to spend money on beautiful things for yourself and loved ones.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
In the next four weeks, your daily pace will accelerate with a busy schedule: Short trips, appointments, errands plus increased reading, writing and studying are on the menu. You’ll be dancing as fast as you can! Many of you will be involved in group discussions and conversations with others. This is not the time to settle down and relax. Get out and make things happen! Fortunately, fair Venus is in your sign now, which makes you charming and diplomatic with everyone you meet. Meanwhile, Mars continues to be at the top of your chart revving your ambitions and making you very bold about going after what you want. Use the next four weeks to clarify important issues with others.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
The next four weeks are the perfect time for you to reflect upon your values and whatever it is that you think is most important in life. Curious how we often do not take the time to define what matters most to us? It’s important to know what matters most because then you know how to make the correct decisions. You also know what to encourage in your life and what to discourage. Many of you will be focused on money, earnings and your possessions. You might want to take a critical look at what you own and get rid of what you no longer need. It takes up space and you have to take care of it. Get rid of it!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Dear Virgo, the Sun is in your sign for the next four weeks, which happens only once a year. This gives you a major boost! Plus, it attracts people and favourable situations to you. Therefore, make the most of this window of time! Mercury is also in your sign for the next few weeks, which is why you’re chatty and eager to share your ideas with others. Mercury excites your mind, making it jump even faster from issue to issue. Don’t get carried away. Stay calm. This is a great time to get out and travel or take short trips if you can. It’s okay to put yourself first because this is your time in the Sun! It’s all about you!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Your personal year is drawing to an end. Therefore, use the next four weeks to ponder important questions. For example, what do you want for your new year ahead? I suggest that you define some goals because goals help you achieve what you want. They focus your mind and they make future decision-making easier. Goals also give you a sense of purpose. They clarify things and keep you on track. Relations with bosses and authority figures are excellent now. In fact, some of you might even begin a flirtation or a romance with a boss. Continue to look for ways to improve your home or to benefit from real estate speculation. (It’s possible!)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
As a Water Sign, you will benefit from this heavy emphasis in the Earth Signs. For the next four weeks, you will be more popular! You will also be more involved in clubs, groups and organizations. Many of you will hang out with younger people more than usual. Note: It’s important to know that you will benefit from interreacting with others. Therefore, friendly! Reach out. Engage with others. Not only will you enjoy their company, you will learn something and also benefit from new contacts and introductions. Grab every chance to travel for pleasure because this will delight you. Furthermore, you deserve some time off because you are busting your buns hard working, working, working!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Ta da! For the next four weeks, the Sun is at 12 o’clock high in your chart, which symbolizes that you are in a flattering limelight! Others will admire you, especially bosses, parents and teachers — and you don’t have to do anything special! (It’s smoke and mirrors.) Obviously, this is the time to make your move. Ask for approval or permission. Doors will open for you. Mercury high in your chart will boost your ability to communicate with bosses and authority figures, while Venus will attract money and financial support to you from financial institutions or your partner. Ah yes, it’s your year to get richer!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Expect to get chances to travel or to expand your horizons in the next four weeks. You also might get further training or education or be able to explore new avenues in publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education. You might also be more involved with people from other countries and different cultures. Relations with everyone will be smooth because with Venus opposite your sign, for the next few weeks, you will find it easy to create a proper balance between yourself and others. You will also find it easy to express your affection for others. If you are in conflict with someone, you can make the peace. Nice!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
In a curious way, your feelings will become more intense and passionate in the next four weeks. This increased intensity will apply to a wide range of your emotional spectrum – anger, love, joy, fear, laughter and romance. Your desire to improve yourself might be stronger than usual, as well. Certainly, you are more willing to take a deeper look at who you are. In fact, some of you will do some soul-searching. Others might feel that their value structure is challenged. Most of you will spend some time on finances and dealing with jointly held property. Fortunately, relations with coworkers are excellent; and your ability to communicate to others is tops! (Clever you.)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
for the next four weeks, the Sun will be directly opposite your sign, which will draw your attention to partners, spouses and close friends. Because of this polarized position, you will have more objectivity, which will allow you to view your own style of relating with t more honesty. (Yeah, it will be tougher to kid yourself.) Obviously, this offers you an excellent chance to learn more about how you relate to others, hence, how you might improve. Romance will flourish and be playful, lighthearted and fun! Likewise, relations with kids will be positive. Nevertheless, you are working hard to earn money – and also working hard to spend it. It was ever thus.
