All Signs: An interesting planetary coincidence is occurring around Valentine’s Day – that special time for “l’amour!” Mercury is retrograde in the same sign as Venus, which means people are encountering ex-partners and old flames in person or on social media. Although these chance meetings might be “in person,” they can also take place in a fantasy world. Oh yes! You can be transported by passionate, sexy dreams! This is because romantic connections with anyone from your past (including your imagination) are heightened now. Fortunately, dreams are private. Only you know what you’re up to.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
In the next four weeks, you are in a window where your personal year is ending, but your new year is not yet ready to begin. This gives you the perfect window for contemplation and self-scrutiny. It’s an ideal time to think about what you want to achieve in your personal year ahead (birthday to birthday). Make a point of defining some goals for yourself for the coming year. Do yourself this favour. Goals make future decision-making easier, and they give you focus. What are your hopes for the future? How can you make these hopes your goals? Do not just react to life as it happens. Grab life! Steer your course. Meanwhile, friends and acquaintances from the past are back in your world in person, online or in your dreams.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Your popularity with friends and members of groups will increase in the next four weeks. You are loved! Not only will you enjoy interacting with others (in person as well as in your dreams), you will want to make goals for your future. Examine how far you have gotten in realizing the goals that you set for yourself so far. Don’t ignore these goals because if you do, in about a month, they will create challenges. The next few weeks are an excellent time to ascertain what has to be done and line your ducks up in a row. This is also a good time to integrate your energy with those of the people around you. Work with others. Do not go it alone.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Looking swell! In the next four weeks, the Sun will cross the top of your chart, which is the only time all year this happens. Symbolically, it means you are thrust in a flattering spotlight, which makes people admire you. They see you as competent and capable even if you don’t do anything special. (It’s smoke and mirrors.). This is why others will seek you out to ask for your advice; plus, many of you will be more involved than usual with a parent. With the Sun at the top of your chart, now is the time to examine your life as a whole and see if you’re going in the direction you want. Friends from afar or from other cultures will enter your world again. Feelings and dreams of escapism will be strong. “I need a change of scenery!”
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
For the next four weeks, life will hum along nicely. Your energy will be strong. That’s why this is a good time to do something to broaden your horizons — perhaps study or explore new experiences. Naturally, you will want to travel; however, most cannot do this. Nevertheless, you can learn from people from other cultures. Meanwhile, your physical passions will be aroused, especially because you might encounter sexual partners from your past. These encounters might be in person, online or in your dreams. However, it happens, these “encounters” will be stimulating and memorable! Financial negotiations will favour you in the next four weeks, especially wrapping up old business and discussions about inheritances and shared property. Ka-ching!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Because Mercury retrograde and Venus are both opposite your sign, many of you are hearing from ex-partners, or thinking about them, or dreaming about them. In other words, they are back in your world! Actually, this is an intense, passionate time for you. You will have passionate feelings about every aspect of your life in the next several weeks. With Mars at the top of your chart, your ambition is aroused so you will also work hard to achieve your goals. The combination of all these different planetary aspects is creating a powerful time for you to achieve something important. Just do it. “Use the Force, Luke.”
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
In the next four weeks, you feel pulled in various directions; but one thing is certain: you will need more sleep. You will give more thought to your closest friendships and partnerships – perhaps, wondering about whether a particular relationship is more trouble than its worth? No partnership is perfect; but if a partnership benefits you more than not – it’s probably worth keeping. Always remember that your friends influence your future because they influence your mind and your mind makes your decisions. This is an excellent month to finish up old business at work or anything related to your health. You might even wrap up old business related to a pet? You’ll be productive.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
In the next four weeks, you want to turn over a new leaf. You want to pull your act together so you can take it on the road. This is why you will work hard and try to be as efficient and effective as possible. You will carry this high bar into your personal world in terms of health and everything you do – including dealing with pets. You want to make improvements in your world! Likewise, your romantic world will get a lovely lift, perhaps because old flames are back in your world – or in your dreams. (Anything can happen because your sex drive is aroused.) Meanwhile socializing with others via Zoom plus fun activities with kids will be a source of joy.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Lucky you! The next four weeks will offer you one of the most fun-filled months of the year! Not only will you enjoy fun times with children and romantic flirtations with others, you will also be more in touch with your muse and will enjoy any chance to express your creative talents. Traditionally this window of time is the perfect time to take a vacation. However, you can be creative and figure out how to take your own “vacation” at home or in a safe way. Family relations are warm. Relatives you have not been in contact with are back in your world again. Be patient with partners and close friends because fiery Mars is opposite your sign. (Patience is the antidote to anger.)
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
A lovely display of planetary energy is affecting you now. It draws your focus to home, family and your private life, especially dealing with a parent. Meanwhile, Mercury retrograde, lined up with Jupiter and Venus will promote warm communications and fun conversations with siblings, relatives, neighbours and people from your past. This will encourage learning, studying and writing, especially making money through your words. (We like!) Meanwhile, fiery Mars is in a part of your chart that makes you want to work hard. You want to accomplish a lot. In fact, you are so ambitious to be productive, you might be a bit bossy delegating to others.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
The pace of your days is accelerating in the next four weeks! Your mind will be busy and you’ll be eager to talk to others, plus you will read, write and study more than usual. Some will be forced to take short trips. This increased busyness could be related to sports or something to do with children or the arts, or possibly the hospitality industry or the entertainment world. Meanwhile, cheques in the mail will be late. (Grrr.) However, take heart! You might resurrect old ideas to earn money – ideas that failed before but might be worth reconsideration. “Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more!”
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
For the next four weeks, you will be more focused on money, earnings and cash flow. Likewise, some of you might shop or spend money more than usual. But at a deeper level, this focus on finances will also manifest as a profound exploration on your part, into your values. In other words, what really matters in life? If you don’t know what really matters, how will you know how to make wise decisions? Aye, there’s the rub. Fortunately, with four planets in your sign right now, including Mercury retrograde, you will have the means and motivation to do this soul-searching. This journey might be provoked because old friends and ex-partners from your past trigger epiphanies and memories. “Rosebud!”
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Once a year, the Sun travels through your sign for four weeks. This week this special journey begins for Pisces. Essentially, this is your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of year. Furthermore, with the Sun in your sign, you will attract others to you, as well as favourable circumstances. It’s a good thing! Meanwhile, secret love affairs and secrets of any kind might come out now. They might be revealed or they might be more prominent in your mind and your awareness. Certainly, your ability to research and look for solutions to old problems and answers to old questions is sharpened, which is why you will get results for your quest for truth.
