All Signs: Good news! On Tuesday, Mercury retrograde is officially over! However, its shadow will continue until July 8, so it would be wise to wait until after July 8 to buy big-ticket, Mercury-related items like trucks, cars, cell phones or computers. The Sun is in Cancer for the next four weeks, which will encourage family values and the notions of “clan.” Cancer is about the past as well as hearth and home, and definitely garden and kitchen! Gardeners will be out in full force along with weekend barbecue chefs. This is also a bit of an idealistic week. Of course, Cancer is a sentimental sign, which is why they can’t throw anything away. And George Burns was right: “Happiness is having a large, giving, caring, close-knit family in another city.”
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Your focus on home, family and your private life will be strong in the next four weeks. Many of you will be more involved than usual with a parent as well. You will enjoy entertaining at home. You will also enjoy redecorating or making where you live look more attractive. Quite possibly, meetings and groups will take place where you live? Book clubs, civic gatherings or protest groups – could be anything. Your ruler Mars will boost your energy and give you the determined resolve to express yourself to others without fear or apology. It might also boost your sex drive! Because it could increase your interest in sports, it will also make you more competitive. (You hate to lose.)
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Your daily pace will accelerate in the next four weeks – no question. Suddenly, you have things to do, places to go and people to see! Many of you will also be reading, writing and studying more than usual. You will certainly be in touch with siblings, relatives and neighbours midst all this to-ing and fro-ing. Part of why you will keep on the run is that your home scene is chaotic due to increased activity, visiting relatives, residential moves, renovations or some other reason. Nevertheless, your spirits are high and you’re full of positive hopes for the future. Enjoy group activities and fun times with friends this week. From here on, your moneymaking ideas will unfold more effectively. Ka-ching!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Your focus on your possessions, your wealth and your assets will be stronger in the next four weeks. This is why some of you are seeking a better paying job. Others will look for ways to make money on the side? This is certainly possible because this week, you will attract money, wealth and favours to you. Yes! Bosses and important people might do something that boosts your wealth or your earning power. Meanwhile, something might trigger more profound thoughts. You will start to look at your environment and your daily world and give yourself a report card. You realize how fortunate you are to live where you live and have the affection of your loved ones.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Once a year, the Sun is in your sign for four weeks and that time has arrived. This means it’s your turn to recharge your batteries for the rest of year. The Sun in your sign will also attract people and favourable situations to you, which is why this is such a favourable opportunity! In turn, you will feel generous to others this week. You might want to help someone less fortunate in a distant land. You might also see ways to explore opportunities in publishing, the media, the law and medicine. By nature, you are frugal with your money but this month, you might spend big! (Open your wallet and let a few moths out.)
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Although your personal year is ending, your new year will not begin until the Sun enters your sign four weeks from now. This means, you’re kind of in limbo. Actually, it’s the perfect time to set goals for your new year ahead. What would you like to achieve? The past year was a strange year with Covid restrictions; but now, your new year has promising possibilities! If there’s anything you want to accomplish, be specific about defining your goals. After all, goals will give you a clearer focus on what is important to you. They will give you more clarity in decision-making. They will lead to more control over your future and give you a sense of purpose. Booyah!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You’re looking at a popular month! In the next four weeks, not only will you be more involved with friends as well as groups and organizations, but your involvement with others will benefit you. (This is important to know.) You will also interact with creative, artistic types. The next four weeks are also an excellent window to bounce your hopes and dreams off someone to get their feedback. In some fashion, your involvement with others will lead to a greater interaction with the public at large. You might encourage people to think big or achieve an ambitious goal. Bosses and people in power are willing to listen to you.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Once a year, the Sun sits at the top of your chart for four weeks shining down on you – casting you in a flattering spotlight. It’s a favourable situation and it has arrived! Yay! This is why you will look good to bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police. They will admire you even if you don’t do anything special or anything different. (It’s smoke and mirrors.) Since this influence actually exists for you, obviously, the next four weeks are the perfect time for you to make your pitch and do what you can to advance your agenda. Because Venus is in the picture as well, some of you might strike up a romance with your boss or an authority figure. Meanwhile, you might also help someone else in need.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
In the next four weeks, you have wanderlust! “I’m outta here!” With Covid restrictions lifting in many places, some of you will book a flight to grab a change of scenery and explore adventure! You want to learn something and be stimulated! “I’ve been cooped up too long!” However, this same influence will also bring opportunities in medicine, the law, publishing, the media and anything to do with higher education. You might want to take a course or get further training. You might also become romantically involved with someone “different”. Opportunities to enjoy a vacation, sports events and fun times with kids, as well as social outings will delight. Explore!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You will be more passionate about everything in the next four weeks. Romance will be passionate. Issues will be passionate. And in particular, you will be passionate about assets, shared property and the wealth of someone else. But it’s all good. If you’re negotiating how to divide something, you’ll come out smelling like a rose. Obviously, this means the next four weeks are an excellent time to negotiate mortgages, loans and financial arrangements. Fear not, as the traveller of the zodiac, you’ll be glad to hear that Mars will do its best to bring you opportunities to travel and expand your world! Focus on what’s necessary and the rest will fall in place.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
It’s that time of year when you need more sleep. That’s because symbolically, the Sun will be as far away from your sign as it gets all year and the Sun represents energy. Grab some cat naps in the next four weeks. You will find that your focus on partners and close friends will also intensify. And yet, you will have more objectivity to see these relationships more realistically and to see your role in them. This means you can see how you can improve your style of relating to others – major bonus. Your sex drive will be amped as well. By no means will you have a boring month ahead! (Meanwhile, roll up your sleeves and get hands-on at work.)
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
It’s time to sit up and be a person. You intend to be organized, productive and efficient in everything you do. Oh yes, for the next four weeks, you’re setting the bar high. (“I’m going to get dressed and get the mail.”) You will derive great pleasure from making this effort to work smart. Naturally, this will spill over into other areas of your life and you will decide to go on a diet, eat healthier, drink less and exercise more. This sounds like a serious makeover! Nevertheless, ice cream is still tempting, isn’t it? (Blame Venus.) Meanwhile, with fiery Mars opposite your sign, be patient and tolerant when dealing with others because you might feel annoyed. Be nice.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Lucky you! Planetary configurations now guarantee you a fun-loving four weeks ahead! Yay me! The bottom line is you want to have a good time! Take a vacation if you can. If not, take a mini-vacation on weekends. Enjoy sports events, playful activities with kids, romantic interludes, the arts and any chance to express your creative urges. Romance will definitely blossom. New love is possible for some of you, while existing romantic relationships will become even more affectionate and thrilling. Fear not, you won’t forget work. In fact, you’ll have lots of energy to work hard. (Impressive!)
