All signs: We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business.
ARIES (MARCH 21 — APRIL 19)
Today: It might be difficult dealing with authority figures. Your interaction could be a downer. Bosses might be demanding, critical or discouraging. This is just a temporary influence — don’t take it seriously or personally. Relax. Sunday: Double check information about debt, taxes, shared property, inheritances and banking details because something unexpected might throw you for a loop. Be proactive in case you can save yourself from a bad situation.
This week: You’re ready to put your cards on the table, especially with a close friend or partner. Naturally, this will create tension. On the other hand, this could be your chance to air your grievances and speak up about something that bothers you. It’s a tricky choice. Whether you should clear the air or stay mum. (Aries don’t do mum.) Fortunately, intimacy is sweet and encouraging. Furthermore, you might attract money to you through your spouse or a business partner, which means this is a good time to ask for a loan or financial support.
TAURUS (APRIL 20 — MAY 20)
Today: Rules related to the law, the church, society or school could cramp your style. Perhaps a teacher will rain on your parade? This is temporary. By next week, you’re laughing!
Sunday: Be diplomatic and charming with friends and partners. Use your warm diplomacy to head off something unexpected that you might not like. At the least, be prepared for a few surprises from someone.
This week: You’re gung ho to work hard and get things done. Plus you will take pride in how much you accomplish. Admittedly, you might have to work for others now, which will not please you. Move yourself into a position where you don’t have to work with or for others more than necessary because you don’t feel like a team player right now. Meanwhile, your relationships will improve — even relations with your enemies. You’re able to understand the needs of others and this helps you work together harmoniously. It’s a good week to mend broken fences.
GEMINI (MAY 21 — JUNE 20)
Today: You might feel a financial squeeze play. Perhaps you expected more from something that is divided? Perhaps you’re getting less from a partner or close friend? Stay on top of this. Sunday: Your work routine might be interrupted by something unexpected.
Knowing this ahead of time, give yourself some wiggle room to deal with surprises.
This week: You want to be playful. You will seek out amusements and opportunities for self-expression because you want to do exactly what you want to do. Oh yes, you’re not into self-denial or postponing self gratification. Physical intimacy will be hot and sexy and probably at the expense of romance because you are inclined to put your own needs first right now. But you realize you have to deal with the real world — not just fantasies. This makes you willing to discuss agreements with others, accept duties, and do what is expected of you. Definitely moments of blowing hot and cold.
CANCER (JUNE 21 — JULY 22)
Today: Conversations with partners and close friends might be stilted or difficult. You might feel someone is critical. They might reject your suggestions or be tough to deal with. Many people feel timid and cautious today.
Sunday: This is an accident-prone time for kids, which means you have to be more vigilant than usual. Know where they are at all times. Make sure you remove them from hazardous situations. Meanwhile, social occasions might be cancelled or changed.
This week: Increased chaos at home are a clear message to you. You have to be tolerant with loved ones. Guests, renovations, moves and people at home who don’t agree with you will try your patience. Fortunately, fair Venus is travelling through your Fifth House, which promotes fun and games with your kids. Creative activities will please you. Romance will flourish. You have earned this right to take a break and enjoy yourself.
LEO (JULY 23 — AUG. 22)
Today: You might have to work hard but not entirely get credit for it. In addition, it’s hard to please bosses, parents and teachers. Just cope as best you can and realize everyone is in the same boat.
Sunday: Minor breakages could occur or perhaps a family argument might break out. Something will change your home routine, that’s for sure. Slow down to avoid accidents. Stay calm and don’t overreact, especially with family members.
This week: You’re a natural leader; plus you are theatrical and melodramatic. Right now you identify with your ideas so strongly, you might be argumentative. You feel the need to drive your point home, and you’re tempted to coerce others into believing as you do. Remember that if you really want people to listen to you — whisper. Enjoy quiet hours at home, even if you are entertaining. Your home is your refuge right now. Let your energy wind down so you can relax and enjoy your home either alone or with friends and a nice Pinot Noir.
VIRGO (AUG. 23 — SEPT. 22)
Today: Children might be an increased burden or responsibility. Plus social obligations might be a drag. Another area that might be a downer is the demands of sports or training in the arts. “It’s show time!”
Sunday: Pay attention to everything you say and do because this is an accident-prone time. Think before you speak. Think before you act. This way, you will reduce being caught off guard or dealing with something for which you’re not prepared.
This week: You will work to earn money because you equate your wealth and what you own with your personal sense of worth. Obviously, you are not your bank account or your home. The upshot is you will also spend it lavishly! You might get into disputes with someone about money. Fortunately, Venus will make you appreciate your daily contacts. Venus will also help you appreciate your daily surroundings. (Appreciation is vital to happiness.)
LIBRA (SEPT. 23 — OCT. 22)
Today: An older family member might discourage or depress you. The Moon is lined up with stern Saturn and Saturn is demanding and tough. “Make your bed.”
“Pile that wood.” “Move that mountain.”
Sunday: Something unexpected will impact your assets. For example, you might find money or lose money. Likewise, something you own might be lost, stolen or damaged. Keep your eyes open! This week: Your sign excels in law, high-fashion, interior decorating and design, arbitration and promoting peace and goodwill. You are a people pleaser, and you hate to rock the boat. You want to make sure everyone gets along. This week, however, you’ll be aggressive, vigorous and will make a strong impression. You will be much more of a fighter for your own rights than usual and your physical activity will be pumped! This conflicts with your desire to keep everyone happy. A challenge? Yes, but you can handle it.
SCORPIO (OCT. 23 — NOV. 21)
Today: It’s easy to fall into worry mode; many people are despondent, self-critical and lacking in confidence. Don’t pay attention to these feelings; they come and go.
Sunday: You think and talk fast. However, you might be too impulsive or slapdash for tasks that require discipline and attention to detail. Don’t be too blunt or offhand.
This week: You’re strong-willed. The current planetary aspects are difficult if not handled properly. You feel frustrated because you’re not getting credit for what you do. You feel uneasy because it seems that inadvertently you create the wrong impression. The way to to handle this is to be conscious of yourself and any self-defeating acts. Be mindful and aware of what you say, what you do and where you are — at all times.
(You might discover you need to confront yourself instead of someone else.) Fortunately, Venus helps you relate to everyone. Venus wants you to make peace by making it easy for you to be diplomatic and charming. You’re saved.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22 — DEC. 21)
Today: Money feels tight, but even rich people can feel broke. Some people are rich in happiness and peace of mind. Mike Todd said, “I’ve never been poor only broke. Being poor is a state of mind. Being broke is temporary.”
Sunday: Something going on behind the scenes will probably catch you off guard today or tomorrow. There’s not much you can do to prepare for this except to be mindful and alert. Keep your day orderly so that you have room to deal with the unexpected. Be cool.
This week: You’re the most future-oriented sign! The current Sun-Mars combo is perfect for you because it encourages you to make goals and pursue them. You’re willing to work today because of what this will bring you tomorrow. But you need to work with others. However, Mars makes you want to go it alone! You need to co-ordinate your needs with the needs of others. Make their goals your goals or vice versa. Meanwhile, physical activity will really turn you on and give you a sense of personal gratification. And yes, secret love affairs are percolating on the back burner.
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22 — JAN. 19)
Today: Many people feel cautious, timid, critical and stingy. Depression is likely. On the upside, duty and orderliness will be a priority. Sunday: A friend, especially someone younger, might do or say something that shocks you. Alternatively, you might meet someone who is a real character. This person might challenge your way of thinking or reveal some side of themselves you never saw before.
This week: Status and the respect of your peers matter to you. This is a time of strong expression of your ego. You want to achieve and you will work hard to get something done. You want to be able to do your thing. You want to be your own boss. This might put you in conflict with authority figures. Be careful. You don’t want to lose the progress you’ve already made. Don’t create enemies. Think of your long-term objective. Fortunately, Venus is in a wonderful position to help you with friends and groups. Venus will help you compromise without feeling you’re losing something personally.
AQUARIUS (JAN. 20 — FEB. 18)
Today: You might prefer to work alone or behind the scenes. Many of you don’t feel up to socializing or being in the limelight. You want to keep your head down and your powder dry.
Sunday: Get ready for a few surprises today (or tomorrow). Your dealings with authority figures will involve something unexpected. Monitor your actions and be aware that you could be scrutinized.
This week: Friendships, independence and a desire to make the world a better place are important to you. The current planetary combo makes you want to convey your views to the world — ideas that you consider to be important to defend if necessary. However, when you identify your ego with your ideas, you believe that you are that idea, which is why you will defend it at all costs. Instead, look for experiences that open new dimensions of reality and quit wasting time defending your ideas. Expand and enlarge your present beliefs through travel or learning. Meanwhile, romance with someone older or in a position of power might blossom.
PISCES (FEB. 19 — MARCH 20)
Today: Someone older might be critical or demanding. But what can you do? Try to avoid depressing people, even if you feel a bit down.
Sunday: Travel plans will be changed, cancelled or modified. Alternatively, you might suddenly have to travel when you did not expect to. Today is full of unpredictable happenings.
This week: Right now, the Sun and Mars are in the part of your chart that affects your passion, your wealth and the values you share with others. Possibly, your values are at odds or you might disagree with someone about the management of jointly held resources? Ego conflicts might foul up negotiations. All of this is passionate and intense, speaking of which, sex will be passionate! At this time, something is fading away to create room for something new to begin. Meanwhile, travel for pleasure and an opportunity to learn something new as well as engage (perhaps romantically) with someone who is “different” are at hand for you.
If your birthday is today: Actress Kate Winslet (1975) shares your birthday. You are imaginative, creative and individualistic. You are sometimes serious because of specific ideas and beliefs. This year you are winding up things you began nine years ago. It’s time to leave behind burdens and move to something new and lighter! Start to identify what is no longer relevant in your life. You are lightening your load to get ready for new beginnings.
If your birthday is on Sunday: Actress Elisabeth Shue (1963) shares your birthday. You are kind, pleasant, cheery and optimistic. You can also be persuasive especially because others will listen to you. Now is the time to clarify goals because you’re entering a year of exciting changes and new beginnings! Start to define what you want for yourself in the next several years. Be proactive! This year you will feel energetic.
