All Signs

Because there's so much happening lately, let's do a brief recap: Jupiter has moved into Leo for the first time since 2002-03, where it will stay for a year boosting everyone's good fortune in a new way. Glory Hallelujah! Mars has finally left Libra where it has been since December. That's eight months of jackhammer energy focused in one place! Normally Mars is in a sign for six weeks once every two years. So that's a relief! (Ya think?) Now the Sun is in Leo for a month, along with Mercury and Jupiter promising pleasure, fun and games for everyone. Yay! (Incidentally, don't worry about avoiding temptation, as you get older, it starts avoiding you.)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Partnerships and close friendships will improve - no question. (If it's not too late.) It will feel like you have stopped banging your head against the wall. Get this: The stress you felt all year will not return for two years, and even then, only for six weeks. Meanwhile, back at the cabana, love affairs, romance, parties, social soirees, sports events and playful times with children are happening for your sign, not only for this month, but for the whole year ahead! (Mom always liked you best.) Something unusual might disrupt your home scene this week. (It's pretty intense.) Tread carefully and don't squat with your spurs on.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

The beginning of this week is accident prone because strong emotions could distract you or make you "lose it." Stay frosty. Meanwhile, in the big picture, fabulous opportunities are beginning to materialize that will benefit your home and family life. They will bring a positive influence that will help you at every level. For starters, the next 12 to 18 months are an excellent time to buy and sell real estate or invest in your home. During this window of time, family relationships will improve. In the month ahead, the Sun will strengthen your focus on home and family even more through family discussions and tackling home repairs. This is also a good time for writing projects, teaching, acting and selling because you can make money from your words! (And I don't mean a ransom note.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Keep an eye on your money and possessions at the beginning of the week because something unusual will occur. You might find money; you might lose money. Ditto for possessions that you own. It's a crapshoot! Meanwhile, starting this month, and continuing for the whole year, your life will get busier, more upbeat and fast-paced. You're starting to entertain big ideas. Mars will give you lots of energy to work; in fact, you will delegate to others as well. ("Move that mountain!") Yes, it's a happening time for you. As the wordsmith of the zodiac, you'll be glad to know that the Sun, Mercury (your ruler) and Jupiter will sweeten your tongue.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

In the month ahead, the Sun will focus on money, cash flow and earnings for your sign; and then Jupiter will continue bringing opportunities to these same areas for the next 12 months. (Beautiful.) This means you have the best chance in over a decade to boost your earnings or get a better job or, if unemployed, to get a job. This week is a good time to buy wardrobe goodies because you like what you see in the mirror. (It's terrible to shop for yourself when you hate what you see.) Unexpected flirtations and new relationships will begin for many. If so, they will be memorable. Meanwhile, financial speculation looks promising. (Something I rarely say.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a favourable time for you, dear Leo. Right now the Sun, Mercury and lucky Jupiter are all in your sign. This is the perfect time to rev your engines and replenish yourself for the coming year. Furthermore, it's an indication that the coming year will be fortunate for you in terms of general opportunities, as well as meeting important people and attracting favourable situations. Admittedly, the next month is harried at home because of increased chaos and activity, but you can handle this. Meanwhile, secret love affairs are passionately exciting for some. Others will contemplate issues and perhaps experience a groundbreaking epiphany about something. ("Hand me the dictionary. I need to look up the meaning of life.")

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

A friend might surprise you at the beginning of the week; or you might reach an unusual arrangement with someone. Perhaps a friend will become a lover? There certainly does seem to be a lot going on behind the scenes that you're not telling others about. Hmmm? For some, this will be a secret love affair. In your day-to-day conversations and activities, you will be more forceful and direct in the next month. In fact, you might even be a tad argumentative. That's because you identify strongly with your beliefs now, which is why you won't take guff from anyone. But it's a strong time for those of you who write and sell. Oh yeah.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You can expect a popular month ahead because the Sun and Mercury will attract others to you, especially younger people. And then Jupiter will continue energizing this attraction for the next year as well. (Excellent!) Accept the fact that you are entering a social year with lots of schmoozing an activity with others. Right now Venus at the top of your chart creates favourable circumstances with bosses, parents and teachers. VIPs approve of you. (Romance with a boss or someone older or richer is possible.) Others will ask for your creative input on design, layout, redecorating and such. Your focus on money, cash flow and how to best use your possessions to your advantage is strong. Ka-ching!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Everything related to your job is improving! People notice you now - people who count, people who can promote your name and reputation. And hey --this is just the beginning of a 12 to 18 month window where you will show the world what you can do. In fact, this is the best chance to promote yourself that you have had in over a decade. Meanwhile, you couldn't start this in a better way. With Mars is in your sign now for the first time in several years, revving your engines! Va, va, va, voom! There's mucho activity in your life and you're working hard. Meanwhile, travel for pleasure looms ahead. Others will use this same influence to make money through publishing, the media, medicine and the law. Ah yes, there's no time like the pleasant.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You are the traveller of the zodiac. That's why travel is always on your mind; however, even for you, travel opportunities are exciting because the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter are in that part of your chart. Grab every chance to broaden your horizons. Travel now and make plans for future travel as well. This same energy will promote positive activity related to publishing, the media, medicine, the law and anything with higher education. Meanwhile, back at the bank, gifts, goodies and benefits come to you from the wealth of others. Ask for a loan or a mortgage. Midst all this, sex is affectionate and hot!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You have a strong focus now on dealing with matters related to shared property, taxes, debt and inheritances. This is good because things will likely be resolved in your favour. The Sun triggers this strong focus this month, and Jupiter will continue it for the rest of the year. This means the next 12 to 18 months are the perfect time to ask for a mortgage or a loan because you will benefit from the wealth of others directly or indirectly. This week partnerships and close friendships are intense and passionate. This could be due to competition with a group or another person. Lots of energy is swirling around you in your relationships!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Remember to get more sleep now because the Sun is opposite your sign, which is as far away from you as it gets all year and the Sun is your source of energy. This is the beginning of a 12 to 18 month window where you will improve partnerships and relationships. Your ambition is aroused for the next month so use this to your best advantage. Coworkers will help you. In fact, a romance or a warm friendship might suddenly strike up at work. Some of you will get a surprise raise or praise. It's looking good for your sign! Don't be stubborn or obsessed about something at the beginning of the week - be flexible. (The rigid trees are the first to snap in a storm.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Everything related to your job will improve in the coming year. Right now, the Sun is giving you energy to focus on work and improve relationships with coworkers; and Jupiter will extend this wonderful influence for the next 12 to 18 months. This is the time to either improve your job or get a better job. Trust me. Work-related travel will keep you busy. Meanwhile, set aside time for a vacation because an opportunity for fun, pleasure and travel will drop in your lap. Surprise love affairs with someone who is "different" might materialize. If so, this will be fleeting but dazzling and memorable!
