We have the “all clear” today to do business and make important decisions. The Moon is in Scorpio. Aries (March 21 — April 19) Today: You’ll love learning something new and exciting today because you want to push the sides of the envelope. You want to grab more of life, to feel in tune with what’s possible and what’s happening. This is a good day to study science, astrology, astronomy, hidden knowledge or technical disciplines.
This week: Mars will be opposite your sign for the next eight months and you will notice this. Some won’t feel it until next month, but at some point in the next eight months, you will be challenged by partnerships and close friendships. There will be tension, in part because you feel impatient with others. However, the upside is if you have been compromising too much in a relationship, this will end. “I’m not going to take this anymore!” Another upside is that there is lots of energy for you to join forces with someone and work with them in a professional capacity or a personal way. Taurus (April 20 — May 20) Today: You might see a better or unusual way to deal with debt, taxes or anything you own jointly with others. If you’re having trouble with disputes about shared property, you might have a novel solution. It’s easy to think outside of the box today.
This week: You are a hardworking sign if you like what you do. This long stretch of Mars for eight months (see All Signs above) is going to energize you in terms of work and getting things done. You’ll find it easy to work hard in the month ahead, in part because you will take pride in what you accomplish. Plus you love the energy to work hard (that’s half the battle). Mind you, you will be keen to be a team player. Some of you will be just as keen to adopt a rigorous physical regimen to boost your health. You mean business. Gemini (May 21 — June 20) Today: Partners and close friends are full of surprises today. In fact, you might meet someone who is a real character. However, someone close to you might want more freedom in the relationship or more space.
This week: Lucky Gemini! This eight-month journey of Mars will activate the part of your chart that governs all the fun stuff. “Yea me!” For starters, it will energize your creative talents and your involvement with the arts plus give you opportunities to express them. You will be keen to do this and just as keen to enjoy the creative works of others. Sports will be hyped the next eight months, as will vacations, playful getaways and social diversions. Parties, romance, love affairs, fun dates and hot sex will be charged with energy. You will feel less like work and more like play. But you will have to be more patient with your kids. Oh well. Cancer (June 21 — July 22) Today: New technology might be introduced to where you work today. Or you might see ways to introduce reforms or improve how you do a task. You’ll love to experiment with new gadgets and toys. Meanwhile, you might learn something groundbreaking that affects your health.
This week: This eight-month stretch of Mars will stir things up on the home front for you. Expect residential moves, renovations, redecorating projects and increased activity and chaos where you live. One reason could be that relatives or guests come to stay and they don’t leave. (Agghh.) Disputes among family members will be likely because all this energy bouncing around will create distractions and a sense of busyness.
Leo (July 23 — Aug. 22) Today: Stay light on your feet and accept all invitations today because this is a wonderful day to party, schmooze with others and enjoy sports events and the arts. Quite likely, a spontaneous invitation will come your way. Be flexible and ready to explore exciting new things, including romance.
This week: Good news for Leos because this eight-month stretch of Mars will stimulate your physical vitality and motivate you to work hard and accomplish a lot. This is your chance to show others what you can do whether you work alone or in groups. Your self-confidence will be strong and your ability to debate and convince will be spectacular. One of the reasons you will be this way is you identify with your beliefs and ideas. Do not try to coerce others into agreeing with you. But if you need to sell, market, write, act or teach — you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank. No one will be able to resist you. Virgo (Aug. 23 — Sept. 22) Today: You’re energetic today and you’re focused on home and family. This is a great day to entertain at home, especially if you invite people who are different or people who are new to you. You want stimulation and a chance to learn something fresh and exciting.
This week: Your chart looks like a pizza cut into 12 uneven pieces. When Mars sits in one of those pieces for the next eight months, it shows me where things will be stirred up! In your case, it’s going to be all about money, cash flow, earnings and the stuff you own, which, incidentally, includes your selfimage. This is no laughing matter (unless you look funny). Since Mars is a shot of energy (POW!), it means you will be willing to work hard for what you want and ready to spend money as well because you identify with your possessions.
Libra (Sept. 23 — Oct. 22) Today: This is an excellent day to do something completely different. Try new activities and meeting new people. Take advantage of what is happening around you so you can learn something more about yourself. You have a heightened perception about the world today.
This week: Well, an eightmonth stretch of Mars in your sign? First and foremost this will give you energy, which will translate into lots of activity in your life. You will work hard and play hard because you finally have a chance to show the world what you can do. You’ll be more aggressive, more energetic and much more of a fighter for your rights. If attacked, you will defend yourself. Be careful you don’t come on too strong to others. Scorpio (Oct. 23 — Nov. 21) Today: Trust your moneymaking ideas because you can think out-of-the-box today. You might see new ways to make money or get a new kind of job or ways to make money on the side. You might see ways to cut costs. Or you might buy something high-tech or avant-garde.
This week: Before Pluto was discovered in 1930, Mars was the ruler of Scorpio, which means this strong energy is no stranger to you. However, this eight- month journey of Mars will take place in a hidden part of your chart, which means you will be more involved in hidden activities, secret trysts, private love affairs and perhaps something clandestine. (Well, no surprise there because many of you work in law enforcement and medicine.) It will be a time of discovering secrets about yourself and others. But it will also be a time when hidden enemies and those who do not have your best interests at heart might have more power. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 — Dec. 21)
Today: This is an exciting day filled with all kinds of possibilities. Keep an open mind and be ready to go with the flow. Accept invitations from others, especially if it’s for something you would never do or with people you would normally not hang out with. Stretch yourself.
This week: Your physical vitality will be dynamic and strong for the next eight months because Mars will boost your energy big time! It also will boost your self-confidence and make you even more forthright than you usually are, which is saying a lot. (Sagittarius always tells it like it is.) Now you will take time to formulate your goals and actively pursue them. Capricorn (Dec. 22 — Jan. 19) Today: In a curious way, you are ready to be frank about yourself. This doesn’t mean you’re going to tell family secrets and let skeletons of the closet, but you’re more willing to learn about yourself and by doing so divulge more to others. Good.
This week: You will be more ambitious than you’ve been in decades because fiery Mars will be at the top of your chart for the next eight months revving your engines and fuelling your desire to go after what you want. Yowzers! By nature, you are ambitious because you intend to “be” someone. Prepare to work hard for the next eight months on some kind of project. You will want your own independent authority and you will want to be your own boss. If you do work for others, this could create problems! Don’t encourage these conflicts unless something important is at stake. Mars is a feisty, fighting energy — something to be respected. Use it internally like a drive or a force. Not externally. Aquarius (Jan. 20 — Feb. 18) Today: You’ll love meeting new people today, especially in group situations. They could be characters or people who just amaze you. Whatever happens might prompt you to modify or change your future goals. Be willing to greet others and accept their invitations.
This week: This eight-month sojourn of Mars means you’ll be more involved in creative intellectual work than usual. You will certainly explore new ideas, concepts, religions and political points of view. You might be excited about a particular discipline or ideology and try to get others to agree with you. Basically, you’re going to put a lot of energy into expanding your mind through travel and education. Pisces (Feb. 19 — March 20) Today: Bosses, parents and other people in authority might surprise you today by suggesting something you least expect. (Possibly, you are the one making an unusual suggestion.) Be open to new ways of thinking because it could ultimately change your direction in life.
This week: In the next eight months, your sexual energies will be highly charged. This bodes well for those involved in romantic relationships. In fact, you might expect a lot from a partner in this regard. (Just remember they take their pants off one leg at a time just like you.) Most of you will also encounter a powerful person who challenges you about something important. It could be values that differ from yours. An old order is passing away to create room for something new.
