All Signs

Heads up! Mercury retrograde warning: By the 25th of this month, Mercury starts to slow down, which means October is a write off for initiating anything or buying computers, cell phones, printers and bicycles, motorcycles, cars and trucks). This gives us three weeks to begin stuff before a window of Sept. 25 to Nov.10, which, by contrast, is a good time to finish what is already started. (Use those dates even though the retrograde dates are Oct. 4-26.) I notice that the iPhone 6 launch date is Sept. 9 right after the Full Moon. Not good! Sept. 6 would be better: before the Full Moon, with Moon in Aquarius (electronics and radio waves). Plus they are launching on a Moon Alert day! Oy vey. Why don't companies check with astrologers? J.P. Morgan said, "Astrology is not for millionaires, it's for billionaires."

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Expect an increasing desire to talk to others in the next few weeks - especially partners and close friends. Yes, you'll want to talk to coworkers too, because the next few weeks are a good time to discuss agreements; and you will enjoy better relationships with superiors and employees. It's a good time to resolve difficulties! Some of you will develop a crush on a coworker. Others will get a raise or at least, praise. Even though you are working to be efficient and productive in the coming month, you are also keen to socialize! Disputes about inheritances, shared property, insurance still exist. "What is mine, is mine; and what is yours, is mine."

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Lucky you! You're a pleasure-loving sign, and now the planets truly favour you in the next few weeks, delighting you with creature comforts, vacations, social soirees, an enjoyment of the arts, and of course, toujours l'amour. "Bring it on!" How come you get all the breaks? However, you are still on the ball. You will extra attentive to to details at at work. Plan carefully in the next few weeks for how you want to advance things. You can get a lot of practical work done by devoting your attention to something. This is also the time to sit down with others to discuss problems. Caution against being critical. People hate that. (Fortunately, you are diplomatic.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You will want to entertain at home in the next few weeks, which is why you are into redecorating or making your home look more attractive. You will also feel playful and prankish. Possibly a flirtation with someone younger might begin? You will also want to use your mind for entertaining, amusing diversions such as reading, writing, playing games that require mental skills. Fear not, you still have lots of energy to work and get things done. (In fact, you're delegating.) Real-estate negotiations are favoured in the next month. So things look great! The only possible downside is overindulgence in good food, good wine and mucho pleasure!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

In the next month, you will have the pleasant experience of discovering that there is a considerable amount of love in your daily life. (Gosh.) Plus you will have cause to appreciate the beauty of your surroundings on a daily basis. (Who knew?) Naturally, this will make you feel positive and happy! Please let others know how much you care for them because you are experiencing a mutual admiration society. Make the most of this! Enjoy short drives; explore your surroundings. Communications with others will be diplomatic and graceful. (Hey -- you can't make this stuff up.) Family discussions will be significant and many of you will tackle home repairs and research family history.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You already know your focus for the month ahead is on money and earnings. But now Venus enters the picture, helping to attract money to you. (Oh yeah!) However, Venus also tempts you to be extravagant buying elegant clothes, jewelry, art objects and perfume. Venus encourages spending to make your home more attractive. Nevertheless, Venus will help all financial negotiations to be settled in your favour. Meanwhile, because Mercury changes signs this week, you will take short trips, want to talk to more people plus enjoy increased reading and writing. In fact, your curiosity about everything around you will be hyped! Be patient at home with increased activity and chaos because order will soon be restored. A comfy home is happiness indeed.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Fair Venus now joins the Sun in your sign. This is lovely! Things don't get better that this! (Actually, they do. I just said that.) In addition to being empowered by the energy of the Sun, Venus will make all of your interactions with others charming and diplomatic. It will be easy to make peace with others. The next three weeks will be great time to enjoy the company of friends. This is also the perfect time to buy wardrobe goodies because you like what you see in the mirror. You will have a strong focus on money matters in the next month due to buying and selling, shopping and wheeling and dealing. Ka-ching! "Baby needs a new pair of shoes!"

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Even though two planets (the Sun and Venus) are hiding in your chart, making you content with keeping a low profile; nevertheless, busy Mercury enters your sign this week. By contrast, this accelerates the tempo of things because it makes you think fast, talk fast and work fast. Your conversations are excitable and stimulating while your mind jumps from issue to issue. You feel restless, impulsive and eager to travel or take short trips. You will be on top of things if you have to negotiate financial matters because you will do your homework. On top of that, Mars makes all your communications direct, forthright and persuasive. Wow, you can't lose!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This continues to be a wonderful social scene! Enjoy schmoozing with younger, artistic types. All groups will please you (business conferences, classes and meetings). Romance will get a boost because friendship brings love and love brings friendship. Plus Mars in your sign energizes you and helps you go after what you want. But in the bigger picture, you are reevaluating friendships and how important they are in your life and who you want as friends and who you don't. This is not an area in which you are fuzzy. You are black and white about where you want to invest your time and energy. (A friend is not a backstabber; a friend is someone who stabs you in the front.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a lovely time for you because both the Sun and fair Venus are moving across the top of your chart. The top of your chart is how you look to the world - it's your reputation. Naturally, the Sun calls attention to you in a flattering way but Venus really clinches the deal! It creates favourable circumstances for you professionally speaking because it attracts people to you, especially people who are older and richer. Perhaps a mentor figure. Venus will create a romance with someone in power. People will ask you for your advice about artistic matters - design, layout, furniture arrangement and that sort of thing. Conversations with younger friends will pump you with energy!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Now you really want to travel for pleasure. Definitely. The Sun ignited your desire to explore more of the world but this week, Venus sweetens the pot. In particular, it makes you want to see beautiful places, art galleries, gorgeous architecture, stunning beaches and attend great concerts. You may encounter a loved one who introduces you to new vistas. It's a good time to start to think about what new studies might help you in your career. It's also a good time to talk to bosses, employers and VIPs, especially to get a promotion or to get their help. You're holding a good hand now - don't be afraid to play it.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Mars is high in your chart arousing your ambition. Meanwhile, both the Sun and Venus are travelling through one of your Money Houses, which helps you in financial negotiations with others, especially about inheritances, taxes, debt, insurance matters and shared property. Actually, the placement of Venus here will attract money to you so this is also a good time to ask for a loan or a mortgage. Meanwhile, sex will be hot, passionate and sweetly affectionate - an irresistible combo! And Mercury adds an interesting twist by piquing your curiosity about things, making you want to travel or take a course so you can learn anything new. "I want it all!"

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

First the Sun moved opposite your sign (to stay for a month) and this week, fair Venus sits there as well. Looking sweet! The Sun, of course, focuses your attention on partnerships and close friendships; however, Venus sweetens everything. In fact, this is considered the best position for all relationships, so enjoy the next few weeks! You will easily express your affection to others and you will just as easily understand the needs of your partner, which makes your relationship work harmoniously. Even if you are in conflict with someone, you will smooth troubled waters. Meanwhile Mercury will help you to take care of loose ends with shared property, taxes, debt and such.
