All Signs: I believe that in the next few months, we will discover information and data that has been withheld. There will be surprise about this new information that comes to light. Meanwhile, this is also a time when many of us might doubt something, especially our abilities. Doubt is not your friend. It creates mental chaos. Sometimes doubt is useful, but generally, it is not. Doubt can rob your confidence and paralyze you. It’s interesting to know that the antidote to doubt is faith. Simple faith in your future. Decide to have faith in your future! (I believe that faith can move mountains – but curiously, not furniture.)
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Listen up! You will need more sleep and more rest in the next four weeks for two reasons: For starters, symbolically speaking, the Sun is now as far away from your sign as it can get all year and the Sun represents energy. This means you will be more tired. Your energy will be flagging. However, in addition, your ruler fiery Mars is in your sign now going retrograde. This is most unusual. The Sun opposite your sign happens once every year; but Mars has not been retrograde in your sign since 1988! Therefore, take care of yourself. Don’t be cocky or overconfident. Be aware of what you do and say. Take it easy and be kind to yourself.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The next four weeks are a mixed bag. In one way, you will accomplish a lot because you are motivated. You are inspired to do your best, because you want to be productive, efficient and effective! You will also be more aware of your health. This is wonderful! However, Mars will be retrograde in a hidden part of your chart, which is bound to trigger feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt. This planetary phenomenon might trick you into being your own worst enemy. You might self-sabotage yourself. (This influence has not occurred since 1988.) By reading this, at least you will be aware of its possibilities. That’s the best thing you can do – be mindful to be aware.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
For the next four weeks, the Sun is in the most fun-loving, playful part of your chart! This is the perfect time for a vacation. It’s a great time to enjoy sports events, playful activities with children and explore the arts, especially opportunities to express your creative talents. Romance will flourish and existing relationships will be more attentive and encouraging. “Moi?” “Oui!” Venus will make you charming and pleasant. However, Mars will be retrograde in a part of your chart that deals with friends and groups. The last time Mars was retrograde in Aries was in 1988. Tread carefully with your friends. You might encounter something unexpected.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You are a nester, and the next four weeks will encourage you to feel cozy and comfortable, while you focus on home and family. Some will be involved more with a parent. In either case, you will love to cocoon at home among familiar surroundings. Family conversations will be important. Some of you will tackle home repairs. You might feel you have the money right now to do them. However, whereas before, you felt gung-ho about a particular project – now – you’re not so sure? Should you keep on track with your ideas or should you wait and rethink things? Well, as my mother always said, “It never hurts to give anything a sober, second thought.” (She was a practical gal with a sweet tooth, which meant we had two desserts a day! Lunch and dinner.)
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
It’s important to know that you’re in a four-week interval that is wild and crazy with big demands on your time! Your daily rhythm will accelerate because suddenly, you have so much to do! Short trips, errands, appointments, increased reading, writing and studying are just some things that will create your busy schedule. Fortunately, fair Venus is in Leo, and this makes you charming and diplomatic. Whatever you have to do, you will do with aplomb. (You have class and style.) Nevertheless, retrograde Mars might make you question your beliefs, question your politics and question your faith in something? Fortunately, this is temporary.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
In the next four weeks, you’ll be thinking more about money, possessions, assets and your personal values. What are your priorities? What really matters to you? You have to know what matters before you make important decisions. (This sounds axiomatic but it isn’t. Many people don’t know what really matters until they lose it.) Expect to come up with some clever moneymaking ideas in the next few weeks. You also will enjoy time spent in solitude. However, disagreements about shared property and inheritances might get bogged down. You might be forced to modify your position or rethink things. You can do this.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
This is your month! The Sun is in your sign giving you a chance to replenish yourself! It will also attract people and favourable situations to you. Mercury is in your sign as well and this makes you chatty and eager to talk to others. (Very favourable for those who teach or give speeches.) The tricky thing is that Mars is now retrograde opposite your sign. This could work to your advantage. Whereas before, you were quick to be annoyed with partners and close friends, now you might reassess things and see those who are close to you with more clarity. Could this be the beginning of wisdom? (Probably not. For that you have to read a fat book with big words.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Don’t worry if you feel at loose ends in the next four weeks. For starters, your personal year is coming to an end. Ideally, you will spend more time being low key this month. (Last month was popular!) Now you need time to be by yourself to pull your act together and do some navel gazing. Think about goals for your new year ahead because goals help to keep you on track and they give you more clarity in decision-making in the future. They also give you a sense of purpose. Meanwhile, you might doubt your ability at work? You might have some health issues that worry you? Whatever these doubts are, they are temporary. Believe in yourself.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You’re heading into a popular four weeks when everyone wants you on their team! You’ll enjoy this friendly, popularity, especially because you might be hanging out with younger people more than usual. Many of you have a chance to travel for pleasure (surprisingly). In any event, you will do what you can to broaden your horizons and learn new things and meet people from fascinating backgrounds. However, romance might be perplexing. In fact, not only romance but something to do with the entertainment world or show business? Something that you thought was a sure thing now looks ‘not so sure’. You’re doubting. You don’t like this because doubt is not your style. You need to have a positive belief in things, especially your future! Relax because by January everything will fall into place. (Until then, the kid stays in the picture.)
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
This is the only month all year when the Sun is at high noon in your chart, acting like a spotlight on you. And this spotlight is flattering! Obviously, everyone’s impressed with you, especially bosses, parents and teachers (It’s smoke and mirrors. You don’t have to do anything special.) What an advantage! (Impossible to ignore.) This is obviously the time to make your pitch and do what you can to get what you want. It’s a powerful month! Not only that, other sources will help you. It’s a good time to ask for a loan or mortgage. The one area that is perplexing and challenging is your home and family life. Be as creative and skilful as you can to keep things cooking on all four burners.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
This might be a frustrating time because you want to get outta Dodge. You want to travel and explore the world. However, most of you cannot do this. Therefore, you must think of ways to satisfy your urge to get more out of life and learn something fresh and exciting. Can you take a course? Learn a new language? You might talk to people from other backgrounds and different cultures because they will educate you. Why not travel through books and film? Fortunately, relations with those who are close to you are cozy and warm. Nevertheless, you might fear being misunderstood. You might hesitate to make your case. Do you doubt you?
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
The next four weeks will be more intense and passionate than usual but this is nothing you can’t handle. (It happens every year.) In fact, the underlying theme of this window of time will be one of self-improvement. Great! Why not be the best that you can be? Why be less? Because you will feel very much alive in the next few weeks, you might want to do some psychological self-exploration. In fact, you might meet someone who will help you do this? Financial matters regarding shared property and inheritances will be a focus. Guard against getting stalled in the water with earning money. Don’t be casual about this. Keep busy!
