All Signs: On this Winter Solstice, Monday, Dec. 21, Jupiter and Saturn will be the closest they have been since 1623. (That’s 400 years ago!) This great conjunction marks the end of a 200-year era and the beginning of a new one. But really, it’s more of a constant flow of subtle changes. From 1820 to 2020, the seeds of the new era came with television in the 50s, home computers in the 80s and the Internet for the masses in the 90s. Looking ahead, technological advances will be mind boggling! (“Beam, me up Scotty.”) The move towards a global village and world government will encourage equal opportunities for everyone. Look up in the skies to see this rare event. The Santa fans call it the “Christmas Star.” (And you know that when you stop believing in Santa is when you start getting clothes for Christmas.)
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Bosses, parents, VIPs and even the police will think you are wonderful in the next four weeks. That’s because you will impress others without even doing anything special. (Oh, the power of it all!) The reason for this is this is the only time all year that the Sun is at the top of your chart acting like a spotlight on you — and this spotlight is flattering! (You can’t go wrong.) Travel opportunities appeal but can you travel? Meanwhile. this great conjunction mentioned in All Signs above will begin a new kind of popularity for you. New friends, new groups and new associations are all waiting for you to appear.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The next four weeks are interesting because three planets make you want to explore your world and do something different. “I need a change!” If you can’t travel, which would be ideal, then make every effort to learn something new so that you are stimulated by new ideas, new knowledge and fascinating discussions with others. It might be fun to learn a new language? Meanwhile, this great conjunction (see All Signs above) takes place at the top of your chart, which certainly bodes well for your career and your reputation with your peers! Great things await you. People have expectations of you in the coming year and you won’t let them down.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You will be intense and passionate in the next four weeks. Perhaps something important is at stake? Whatever happens, you will not be casual about things. Everything will matter. Issues will be black-and-white, good or bad. However, in the bigger picture, you want to get outta Dodge because you need a change of scenery. It’s in your nature to thrive on variety and stimulation; and many of you are getting cabin fever. Personally, relations with partners and close friends will be warm and supportive. Nevertheless, do something so that you feel some kind of exciting change! Shake things up a little.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The next four weeks are the only time all year when the Sun is opposite your sign. Because the Sun is your source of energy (symbolically speaking in your chart) it means it is now as far away from you as it gets all year, which means you will have less energy. This means you need more sleep and more rest. Don’t ignore this and get run down. Mercury is also opposite your sign now, which means you will have lively discussions with partners and close friends. You might even attract someone very chatty to you. Meanwhile, the great conjunction mentioned in All Signs above takes place in one of your Money Houses. This bodes well for you! It means that the universe is going to open up and give you favours. Expect to benefit from banks, partners and the resources of others in the coming year. Ka-ching!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Suddenly, you’ve decided to swing into work mode. So much to do! Actually, you want to be better organized and efficient during the next four weeks. This is why you will do everything within your power to pull your act together so that your world is running smoothly around you. You want that reassurance. When you achieve this, then you have greater freedom to do the things you really want to do or deal with certain, necessary challenges. Nevertheless, Venus is in a part of your chart dealing with parties, fun activities with kids, sports and the arts so you will still have some fun. (Did you ever doubt it?)
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Lucky you! You’re entering a wonderful four-week window that encourages you to enjoy life and do your own thing. Playful activities with children, exploring the arts, enjoying sports and just feeling good about life will be your theme for the next month. Family relations will be warm and friendly. You will enjoy redecorating where you live and making it look more attractive. If you can entertain at home in some way – you will. You might dramatically improve your health in the coming year, you might also get a better job or certainly, improve your existing job.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
This Winter Solstice marks a time when you will start to focus on home, family and your private life much more than usual. In fact, in the next four weeks, you will welcome opportunities to cocoon at home and be more involved with a parent or family members. You might address certain home repairs. Family discussions will be important. Quite likely, you will feel more peaceful and appreciative of your surroundings. You will feel gratitude. Meanwhile, this important conjunction mentioned in All Signs above might lead to a more rewarding relationship with your kids. It will also encourage you to value your creative talents.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
For different reasons (some of them quite obvious at this time of year) you’re ready to swing into action! The next four weeks will be busy because your schedule will be full of appointments, errands, time spent with siblings and work plus increased studying, reading and writing. You have much to do! If you can, you will also travel or take short trips. The good news is you will attract money to you. You might get a raise or boost your earnings. You also want to spend money on beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. The great conjunction mentioned in All Signs above will bring about improvements to family and home. Whatever happens will please you.

You’re going to give more thought to cash flow, money and earnings in the next four weeks – definitely. Many of you will have excellent moneymaking ideas. Furthermore, with Venus in your sign, you will be charming and diplomatic with everyone. This will also be a time where you will enjoy playful banter with your kids, sports and competitive activities. The great conjunction mentioned in All Signs above is a signal that you’re heading into a year full of change – but it’s positive change. You will find that you are more confident and “thinking big”, which is what you like to do. You were born for big ideas – and you know it.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
This is your hour. The Sun is now in your sign where it will stay for the next four weeks giving you a chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. You are going to feel fulfilled, regenerated and rejuvenated! Others will notice you. In fact, you will attract people and favourable situations to you. Secret love affairs are taking place for some of you. Some stress on the home front is likely due to some kind of chaos. Meanwhile, your financial fortunes are getting ready to improve. Oh yes, you are going to get richer in the coming year! Music to your years because all Capricorns like to think they have a secure old age. (Why not a secure young one?)
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Your personal year is ending very soon; however, your new year has not yet begun until your birthday arrives. That’s why you are in a state of limbo for the next four weeks. Many of you will choose to play things low-key and hide behind the scenes. Others will get cozy with friends, clubs and organizations. Despite your low-key approach, your communications with others will be direct and strong. That is one thing for sure. Meanwhile, the great conjunction mentioned in All Signs above happens in your sign! This means you’re moving into a new area where you will feel more relevant. You will feel people understand you and in turn, you understand what’s going on. How refreshing!
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You’re entering a lovely, four-week window when you will be more popular and enjoy the company of others, especially younger people. You might also play a leadership role in a group. Meanwhile, you will create favourable impressions on bosses and people in business, and anyone connected to your professional life at this time. In fact, regardless of what you do for a living, others will want your input about design, layout, redecorating or PR decisions. Some of you might begin a romance with someone older or more established. You will also start to explore your private, inner world and your spiritual values more than usual. You realize this isn’t just a rehearsal – it’s the real deal. Be there or be square.
