We have the all clear today to do business and make important decisions. The Moon is in Taurus. Aries (March 21 — April 19) Today: This is the perfect day to practice patience because the Moon is in your Money House opposing first Mars then Saturn. Basically, this means that financial obstacles or people in power who affect your finances will irritate you. Oh dear. Patience.
Sunday: Your challenge today is to spend money wisely. It’s a poor day to shop or buy anything other than food and gas; but you can spend money for frivolous entertainment, which is exactly what you want to do.
This week: You’ve been in party mode for a while and it’s been fun. However, now it’s time to pull your act together. This always happens when you see September looming on the calendar, right? It’s probably that back-toschool headspace that affects you for the rest of your life, especially if it is reinforced because you are a parent. This is why you will want to become more efficient and more effective in everything you do. Give yourself the right tools to do a good job because it makes things easier and always get a better result. Taurus (April 20 — May 20) Today: Today the Moon is in your sign in a harsh relationship with two other planets. This can make you angry or discouraged. You feel you have to justify your actions to others, which is always a drag.
Sunday: This is a wonderful day to entertain at home and enjoy good food and drink with family members. You might be tempted to buy something beautiful for your home or a family member.
This week: While many feel the need to get more focused and pull their act together, ironically, you are going to slip into serious party mode. If you can slip away on a vacation in the next month — you will love it. Many of you are involved in music (Taurus rules the throat), which means you will love the chance to express your creative talents in the next four to six weeks. Enjoy movies, the theatre, sports events, the arts, cultural events and musical performances. Gemini (May 21 — June 20) Today: You might feel discouraged today. Life is difficult. No matter what you try to do, especially at work, it seems as if you meet with obstacles or people who block your efforts. Don’t worry because this is just a brief dark cloud on your horizon.
Sunday: You feel fabulous today. (Was yesterday only yesterday?) Optimism and enthusiasm for life will carry you through this day with joy and grace. It’s a great day to schmooze but a poor day to spend money.
This week: Your attention now shifts to home, family and your domestic scene. This might mean family reunions and increased interaction with relatives. However, this month will also offer a chance to cocoon at home and enjoy quiet moments in familiar surroundings. You can use this month to replenish and restore yourself, which is a good idea because October will be full of social engagements and plans to have fun.
Cancer (June 21 — July 22) Today: You find it difficult dealing with females today, as well as children and romantic partners. It’s hard to maintain your cool because others resist you or do whatever they can to make life difficult for you.
Sunday: This is a tricky day because in one way, it’s a good day for business and commerce. “There’s money in them hills!” And yet, if you check the Moon Alert, you will see it’s a poor day for major purchases.
This week: Fasten your seatbelt for a busy month ahead. Your schedule will be jam-packed with people to see, places to go and things to do. Short trips will be a factor along with increased study, reading and writing. You’re keen to talk to others because you want to enlighten them. You’re full of bright, clever ideas you want to share. One reason, you might be wheeling and dealing is you see financial opportunities you want to explore.
Leo (July 23 — Aug. 22) Today: This is a poor day to ask anyone in a position of authority for permission or approval. They will shoot you down. Don’t even go there. Fortunately, this difficult influence is only a matter of hours.
Sunday: This is a feel-good day because both Venus and Jupiter are aligned in your sign, which makes you feel warm and friendly! “Hail fellow, well met!” In fact, because this is a fortunate time for you, a lucky windfall might come your way.
This week: Even though the Sun leaves your sign this week, Venus and Jupiter are still in Leo bringing all kinds of good stuff your way. This is an excellent time to shop for wardrobe treasures because you feel good about yourself. “Look at me — I’m hot!” And that is the frame of mind you want to have when buying clothes that create the image you want to project onto the world.
Virgo (Aug. 23 — Sept. 22) Today: Travel plans might be delayed or cancelled today. Discussions related to the media, publishing, higher education, medicine and the law are discouraging.
Sunday: Like Leo, today is a good day; however, you will enjoy it in a quieter way. You feel content and inwardly peaceful and happy.
This week: For the first time in a year, the Sun has returned to your sign, giving you a chance to recharge your batteries for the next 12 months. This will be a fortunate time for you because when the Sun is in your sign (this happens only once a year for four weeks) it has the ability to attract favourable situations and important people to you. Make the most of this. Milk this for all it’s worth. Mars will help you to go after what you want because it now lends energy to all your communications — including your writing skills.
Libra (Sept. 23 — Oct. 22) Today: This is a poor day to ask for a mortgage or a loan or to borrow something. Everyone is tight-fisted. Don’t take this personally; it’s just what it is.
Sunday: Enjoy your popularity today. Everyone wants to see your face. Groups, casual friendships and professional associations will all be successful encounters for you.
This week: Venus and Jupiter continue to boost your popularity with friends and groups, which is wonderful. In particular, you will welcome the chance to enjoy the creativity of others, especially younger artistic types. Nevertheless, you can’t be all things to all people all of the time. This means that the month ahead is a good time to pull in your reins and get some serious R&R. Grab every opportunity to seek solutions so that you can start to plan your new year ahead (from birthday to birthday). Scorpio (Oct. 23 — Nov. 21) Today: The best way to approach today is not to expect too much from yourself or others. Be patient and easygoing. Expect minimal co-operation and don’t be surprised if you don’t even get that.
Sunday: You can boost your career in a wonderful way today because everything is lined up in your favour. It’s a perfect time for public appearances because you will impress any group.
This week: Prepare for a popular month ahead because everyone is going to want to see your face. Just accept this and go with the flow. Invitations to clubs, organizations, parties and social events will pour in. Say yes, because it will benefit you to interact with others. In fact, the month ahead is a good time to share your hopes and dreams for the future with others because their feedback will help you. Don’t work in a vacuum. Get the benefit of think-tank discussions where ideas build to new levels with new perspectives and vistas. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 — Dec. 21) Today: If you are at work today or you need to tackle certain tasks or errands, you will encounter difficulties and obstacles that irritate you.
Sunday: This is a great day to travel and explore more of the world because whatever you do will bring you joy and knowledge. Grab every opportunity to expand your horizons.
This week: This is the only time all year when the Sun slowly crosses the top of your chart. This phenomena acts like a spotlight on you, which means you are noticed. Furthermore, this lighting is flattering, which means people in authority (as well as others) see you as competent, desirable and talented. Don’t do anything to correct this impression. (Kidding!) This placement of the Sun is an excellent time for you to think about your life direction in general. Are you headed in the direction you want to go? You are a forward thinking sign who is always planning your future. Capricorn (Dec. 22 — Jan. 19) Today: Romance is in the toilet today. Don’t expect too much from your main squeeze. Be patient. Likewise, be patient dealing with children because all social and so-called “fun” situations will have their challenges, but these will be brief downers. Nothing serious.
Sunday: Keep your pockets open because you can benefit from the wealth and resources of others today. Gifts, goodies and favours will come your way or perhaps you will have the opportunity to benefit from something that someone else owns.
This week: You will have an exciting month ahead because you will make it so. Suddenly, you’re keen to travel and explore more of the world because you want adventure and a sense of being alive and getting the most out of life. By all means travel if you can, but the coming month is also perfect for signing up for a course or undertaking studies that broaden your understanding of anything. Talk to people from other countries and different cultures. Aquarius (Jan. 20 — Feb. 18) Today: Avoid important discussions with family members today, especially authority figures in the family. Don’t ask for favours. In turn, be patient with others because people are easily annoyed with each other today. To avoid arguments, keep your head down and your powder dry.
Sunday: In the coming year, you will have many opportunities to improve your closest friendships and partnerships, and today is one of them. Enjoy the company of those who are closest to you.
This week: Venus and Jupiter continue to sweeten your partnerships and close friendships, which is quite lovely. However, as the Sun now shifts signs, you will find that the coming month is more intense and primarily focused in two directions: Sex and money. Physical relationships will be powerful and transformative — for sure. But you will feel equally as intense about taxes, debt, inheritances and shared property because you want to sort these things out. Pisces (Feb. 19 — March 20) Today: It’s all too easy to be discouraged and annoyed with others today, especially siblings, neighbours and daily contacts. You might feel unloved and unappreciated. But know that others feel the same way.
Sunday: You can improve your job today for some reason. You might get a better job or better duties or you might improve your workplace. Some of you could get a raise or praise.
This week: During the next four weeks, the Sun will be directly opposite your sign. This is the only time all year this happens and because the Sun is your source of energy, and it is as far away from your sign as it gets all year, you will need more sleep. Respect your need for more rest. Meanwhile, this polarized position of the Sun will focus your attention on partnerships and close friendships.
