On Monday, Mercury retrograde ends and silly errors reduce. (Yay!) Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto continue in Capricorn, an influence that strengthens the status quo. But on March 21, (Spring!) Saturn enters Aquarius. Quelle difference! Saturn in Aquarius will challenge the status quo. But not yet. It will be a whiff in the air of what’s coming. Saturn returns to Capricorn in July to stay until mid-Dec.; then it’s gone for 30 years. Oh yes. In 2021, change is a-comin’ because radical Aquarius is the energy behind unions, Green Peace and Amnesty International. Everyone will have tattoos and earbud implants (except for seniors who get rock music through their Mercury fillings). “Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!”
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Once again, a mixed message from the universe is hitting your sign. Because the Sun continues to hide in your chart (until your birthday) this solar influence makes you want to hide as well, and keep a low profile by working alone or behind the scenes. Countering this, four planets at the top of your chart, urge you to make a big splash in the world! They arouse your ambition and magnify your public success! People are impressed! You have to continue to juggle this contradiction until your birthday. In the meantime, Venus will attract money to you and urge you to buy beautiful things for yourself and loved. “I like!”
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Your popularity continues! (Everyone wants you to sit at their table because you’re a foodie.) In the next few weeks, you will be charming and diplomatic with everyone because your ruler Venus is in Taurus. This makes you so attractive! You will like what you see in the mirror, which makes this an excellent time to buy wardrobe treasures. Do it! Conversations with bosses and authority figures will improve because Mercury retrograde will no longer be at the top of your chart. Major relief! Meanwhile, your desire to travel and explore opportunities in publishing, the media, the law, medicine and higher education continues to flourish!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Another week with the Sun at high noon in your chart. (This happens for four weeks once a year.) It symbolizes that you look fabulous in the eyes of others, especially bosses, teachers, and VIPs, which is why this window of time is when you should make your move! Ask for a raise. Ask for a promotion. Ask for that parking spot. Ask for whatever you want because the odds are good you will get it! Others see you in a flattering way, even if you don’t do anything special. Secret love affairs might flourish for some of you. (You love your adoring peanut gallery.) Meanwhile, gifts, goodies and money from others continue to come your way. Oh my – what’s not to like?
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
A strong group of planets now sits opposite your sign. This is a mixed bag because Saturn has created problems in your closest partnerships and friendships in the last two years. (Thank goodness, this is gone by the end of December never to return for 30 years.) In addition, Mars, which is opposite your sign for the rest of the month, makes you easily annoyed and impatient with others. (Well, they’re annoying.) But are they? Could it possibly be the lens in your Martian glasses? What ameliorates these influences is lucky Jupiter at the rescue. Jupiter brings joy to your friendships and partnerships, and blesses your one-to-one encounters with others and attracts “different” people who can help you into your life. Thrilling!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This cluster of planets in Capricorn makes you work hard. (And you’re no slouch in the worst of times.) This continues to be a productive time for you because you’re putting out energy at your job and also on personal tasks that you’re doing. (“I making lists. I have quotas. I will prevail!”) This week fair Venus is at the top of your chart, which is a blessing. It makes you look attractive and clever, especially to bosses, parents and teachers. This is why you will attract others to you who will ask for your advice about creative matters like design, layout, furniture arrangement and the right beer glass for each brand. Plus, the Sun will energize your passions both sexually and in your approach to anything that’s important to you. Look out world!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You still need more sleep. The upside is that you have more detachment and objectivity to view your close friendships and partnerships. You see your style in relating to those who are closest to you, and this knowledge can help you improve these relationships. You can see how to be a better friend: you can see how to be a better partner. Your desire to travel will be strong in the next several weeks; but, if you can’t travel, you can still do something to widen your universe. Explore your own backyard! Study new things. Read books, watch film and movies and learn more because this is what you want and need. Take a tiny vacation. Accept invitations to socialize – definitely.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Because more than any other sign, you are affected by your environment (colour, lighting, smells and the beauty of your surroundings), you are working hard to restore your home to the standards you want. Lately, redecorating projects, changes, repairs and visiting guests have made it tough to keep your home the way you like. It’s important to know that 2020 is the year to focus on your home because you can make wonderful improvements to where you live! You can also explore real-estate opportunities. In fact, this year is the best chance for you to do this in over a decade. This week, money and gifts from others will help you do this very thing! (Oh my.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
It’s fun city for Scorpios because your opportunities to play and enjoy vacations still exist! Socializing and fun getaways plus a chance to enjoy arts and sports events will delight you. Activities with kids will be rewarding. Venus opposite your sign for the next few weeks paves the way for warm, affectionate relations with those who are closest to you. Family discussions are important now and for some of you – home repairs. Despite your focus on fun and pleasure, Mars continues to hype your communication style making you proactive, direct, convincing and persuasive! (Gasp.) People are listening to you! Continue to enjoy your good fortune!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Home, your personal world and your family continue to be your strong focus. Many of you are involved more than usual with a parent. (“Hi Darth.”) Take advantage of the fact that Mars is encouraging you to work hard to earn money because this is the year for you to boost your income! (Yes, Mars will encourage you to spend it as well.) Transportation delays and silly errors in communications will reduce this week and from thereon, because Mercury is no longer retrograde in your House of Communications. (Whew!) Venus continues to bring you praise and perhaps a raise in your job? It also sweetens your relations with coworkers. That’s nice.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
It’s a fast-paced week and you’ve got energy to burn! Fiery Mars is still in your sign, urging you to assert yourself so that you can show the world what you can do. You are more dominant than usual, (but only if forced). You do however, want the complete freedom to do whatever you want. Meanwhile, you’re busy! You have a packed agenda and many of you are taking short trips as well. On top of this, Venus has just moved into a playful, fun-loving part of your chart, which encourages creative activities, fun times with children and also beautifully enhances romantic relationships. Because Mercury is no longer retrograde, money will come to you more easily. About time!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Money, cash flow and earnings continues to be a big focus for you. “Gimme all ya got!” Life has been a bit hairy because Mercury retrograde slipped back from Pisces into your own sign. Aagghh! But as of Monday, this week, Mercury is no longer retrograde. (Good news for you!) In fact, Venus will encourage you to entertain at home. Invite friends over for good food and drink. Many of you will also want to tweak and redecorate your digs. You might even explore real-estate possibilities or a better renting situation? Whatever the case, your life is improving. Nothing is static. Therefore, improvement is always a good sign. You know it; I know it; we both know it.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
The Sun is still in your sign giving you a chance to re-energize and restore yourself for the coming year. “I’m back!” Venus is now travelling through your House of Communications, sweetening your words and making you appealing to everyone else in an affectionate, charming way. (You really know how to do coy, don’t you?) Coy on! This is actually timely — because fiery Mars is energizing your activities with friends and groups and making you possibly, I just say possibly, a bit pushy and “in your face.” Moi? Yes, you. The upside, of course, is that you are able to rouse your troops and set them marching. “To the gates!”
