All Signs: How interesting. No planets are retrograde. It’s all systems go! Use this forward energy to remind yourself to believe in your future. (After all, you’re going to live the rest of your life there.) This week four planets in Taurus, which means you can improve your wealth because Taurus is the sign of money and tangible assets. I like what Winston Churchill said: “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” This echoes Albert Einstein, “Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.” But Teddy Roosevelt nailed it: “Believe you can, and you’re half way there.” Expect financial improvements!
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You’re thinking a lot about money and cash flow because there are four planets in your Money House. The Sun will make you assess your situation and think about what’s important and what you truly value. Mercury will trigger ideas about how to make money as well as spend it. Venus will attract money to you and encourage you to spend on luxuries, art and beautiful things. Uranus will bring change. (Not the kind under your sofa cushions.) It will trigger financial change as well as changes to your values. It will encourage you to find freedom in your relationship to the stuff and the wealth that you own. That’s real change.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Right now, the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus are all gathered in your sign. This pumps your energy and increases your self-confidence. It’s a favourable situation because you will more easily attract money, resources and important people to you. You will be more talkative than usual, not just about money but about everything. The next four weeks are the perfect time to buy wardrobe items for yourself – make a note of this. People are more ready to listen to you now because they sense that you have something to offer, and they value your wisdom, especially about financial matters because hey – you’re the financial wizard of the zodiac!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
All this energy in Taurus, which triggers financial wheeling’s and dealings is actually taking place in a hidden part of your chart. This does not mean that you are not thinking about money and cash flow; it means that you’re doing so quietly. Oh yes. Others might not be aware of what is going through your mind. This behind-the-scenes energy means you can research moneymaking ideas now, as well as research the philosophy of wealth. Beyond satisfying the necessities of life – food, clothing and shelter – what you want is often a state of mind. Rich people can feel anxious about money. They can suffer from poverty mentality. Meanwhile those who want little, will feel satisfied and content.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You’re smart with money because you know how to save, plus, you respect money. You respect what it can do, especially in terms of helping to build a nest for yourself and your family. You also know that money can help to secure your future. (These are important things for you because you are a nester.) Nevertheless, this handful of planets will activate your desire to socialize with others, probably online or via Zoom. You will also talk to younger people and creative, artistic people more than usual. This is an excellent time to explore how to make your hopes and dreams for the future a reality – because in some sense, you can!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
In the next four weeks, you will be more involved with parents, bosses, teachers and the police. This will give you an opportunity to sort out your demands and what you want to achieve, and at the same time, do your best to fulfil their demands and what they want to achieve. There will be more discussions. Know that you will appear to be charming, cooperative and diplomatic. In fact, you’ll make such a great impression on bosses, some of you will begin a romance with someone. The Sun is at the top of your chart for four weeks casting you in a flattering spotlight. (Happens only once a year.) Use this to your advantage!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
In some ways, this will be a frustrating time for you because this handful of planets that urges you to think more about money, earnings and your assets is taking place in a part of your chart that makes you want to travel and expand your horizons. Obviously, most people cannot travel now. But you can travel through books and film. Your basic urge is to be stimulated and break free of your mental routine. You can do this from wherever you are. You can also engage more than usual with people from other countries via Zoom or on-line. Do whatever you can to learn something new. Enjoy talking to people from other cultures. Romance with someone “different” might begin. This is a good time to write an important paper or manuscript.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
As mentioned in All Signs above, your attention will be on money, assets and wealth. No question. Many of you will increase your wealth and your assets by your association with someone else. For example, you might receive an inheritance in the next four weeks. You might become richer indirectly because your partner or someone close to you expands their assets or wealth. Because Venus is in your Money House, you will literally attract money to you as well as favours from others. Your closest relationships might become hotter and really sizzle! (In astrology, sex and money are linked.) This is also a good time to explore avenues in publishing and the media as well as anything connected to medicine and the law. (Wow.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You will need more sleep in the next four weeks because symbolically speaking, the Sun is now as far away from your sign as it gets all year, and the Sun represents energy in your chart. This polarized position of the Sun will also give you a chance to be more detached and more objective in your closest relationships, which means you can improve these relations. Major bonus! Mercury will encourage much discussion and allow you to clarify and explain important issues. (You’ll welcome intellectual stimulation.) Meanwhile, Venus opposite your sign is the best position for love affairs and relating to everyone you know – even your enemies.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You can look forward to getting better organized in the next four weeks simply because you will have the motivation to do so. Suddenly, not only do you want to be organized, you want to be working smart! You want to get results for your efforts in the most efficient way possible. You might also work for the benefit of someone else or be more focused than usual on service to someone or service to an organization. It will be a good time for mental work because you will pay attention to details. Both Mercury and Venus will guarantee that your relations with coworkers will be excellent. In fact, Venus is a hint that for some of you, a work-related romance will begin. (This can happen online.) Meanwhile, do be patient with partners and close friends while Mars is opposite your sign for one more week.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
This heavy emphasis on wealth and assets is taking place in a playful part of your chart. According to astrology, when you play with money, this is considered to be financial speculation. Technically, it’s the truth. This is why your love of drama and desire for entertainment and escape through fun activities will be strong in the next four weeks. Definitely, romance will flourish! Likewise, relations with your kids will improve. Your interest in sports will increase. But what can you do to have fun? You will resign yourself to your bubble of loved ones and play games online. You can do this.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
It’s not surprising that your focus on home and family matters is strong now and will be so for the next four weeks. Some might be more involved than usual with a parent. All of you will be interested in tackling repairs, DIY projects and doing whatever you can to redecorate or make your home more attractive. Mercury and Venus will definitely sweeten your relations with your relatives. Nevertheless, you will also want to withdraw intellectually and reflect upon important ideas that are been bubbling in your mind. Memories from the past will be more important.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Despite the fact that many people are in lockdown, nevertheless, the pace of your days will accelerate in the next four weeks. This could be because you decide to take on an ambitious home project? You might be juggling errands or tasks that take up your time. Many of you will definitely read, write and study more than usual as well. Because you will be eager to communicate with others, especially relatives and siblings, figure out some decent lighting when you go on Zoom so that you don’t look like an apparition appearing in a séance. “Hellooo out there? Can everyone hear me?” Actually, in the next four weeks, you can make money from your words. (Be patient with family members, while Mars is at the bottom of your chart.)
