At the beginning of this week, clever Mercury will be at odds with stern Saturn. Admittedly, this will encourage feelings of loneliness and depression in many of us. (Expect a spike in the sale of sour pickles.) Nevertheless, like a rabbit out of a magician’s hat, Mercury suddenly lines up with wild, wacky Uranus, triggering an explosion of something different! A surprise to your daily world will occur. Expect a change to your daily routine. For some, a relative might have news. Other will dream up new goals. Hey, I figure that if I can’t come forth to the world with some originality – I can come fifth and win a George Foreman grill.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This week, especially at the beginning, you might encounter some financial difficulties dealing with the government, bosses or anyone in a position of power and authority. This might be frustrating. Do not let feelings of doom and gloom over take you because ultimately, with Jupiter still high in your chart, you are protected. Furthermore, Venus, now travelling through your House of Communications, indicates that not only is your social life picking up, but you will be pleasant, agreeable and happy with your everyday surroundings and activities. Great! Yes, some kind of surprise that impacts your earnings, cash flow and possessions might happen. Let’s hope it’s a happy one?
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
There’s a lot happening in your sign this week. At the beginning of the week, Mercury is in your sign at odds with stern Saturn at the top of your chart. This is classic for experiencing difficulties dealing with the government, bosses, parents and VIPs. Someone might throw cold water on your plans and ideas. This will be frustrating. However, right on the heels of this, you will react! Feelings of independence, even rebellion will make you speak out and defend yourself and also defend your own best interests. But hey, fear not because all next year, Jupiter will be at the top of your chart, which bodes well for your career and your public reputation! Success is in your future!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Others are not really aware of what is going on in your life now because whatever is happening is mostly taking place behind the scenes. At the beginning of the week, you might be worried or feeling stressed. If you can improve things or discover solutions, work on this. If the stress you feel is beyond your control – let it go. Your worries will have no benefit. (Easier said than done, I know.) Fortunately, you can benefit from your own ability to be charming and diplomatic right now because Venus is in your sign. This means your people skills are excellent this week! No matter what happens to ruffle your feathers, you will look cool, calm and collected. Make time for creative, intellectual work. You might defend your beliefs in discussions with others.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
At the beginning of the week, someone older or perhaps someone richer or in a position of authority might say or do something that makes you feel diminished. (You are far more sensitive than anyone could ever imagine.) Don’t let this get you down because right on the heels of this – something unexpected will happen. Someone you know will say or do something that surprises you. Or perhaps you will meet someone unusual – a real character. Maybe a friend will become a lover? This is a passionate time for you; however, some of you are using this passion to fight disputes about insurance, shared property, taxes and debt. Hint: If you change your goals, a retreat can become an advance.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
At the beginning of the week, you might be unhappy with your dealings with a parent, boss or someone in a position of authority. They might be uncooperative. They might lay down the law or be too restrictive from your POV. Fear not because this is brief. Following this, some kind of surprise will occur with the same authority figures. You might rebel. You might confront them or they might confront you. Mars opposite your sign makes you impatient with those who are close to you; however, Venus is in a part of your chart that smooths your relations with groups and casual acquaintances. (Whew!) Two different influences! Don’t do anything you will later regret. Keep your cool.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Local news or in the media or something related to another country or perhaps a medical or legal situation will concern you at the beginning of the week. Very soon however, these same areas will be a source of surprise for you. Something might force you to travel or stop you from travelling. Likewise, something unusual in the media or perhaps related to medicine and the law might amaze you. However, once again, this influence will be brief. You are keen to work hard now in order to be productive, which is why you can create such a great impression on bosses, parents and VIPs. Everyone loves you!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Something to do with taxes, debt, shared property, inheritances or anything that you own jointly with others will be sobering and possibly disappointing at the beginning of the week. “What? Is this all I am getting?” However, immediately following this possible disappointment, something unusual or unexpected will occur. Quite likely, it will surprise you. It might be a reversal of your original news? In some cases, it might be your defiant reaction to something? Double check banking details and details related to taxes and shared property so that you are not caught off guard. Forewarned is forearmed.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
At the beginning of the week, you might find partnerships and close friendships restrictive or depressing. Someone might be critical? You might feel cut off from someone? Hey, relax. These feelings occur in every relationship at times, especially when we are all in each other’s faces more than usual. This is one of the challenges of staying at home! Naturally, this will lead to some kind of “break-out” moment. Someone might rebel. You might surprise your partner by doing or saying something they didn’t expect. Or vice versa, they might surprise you. But it could be liberating? Mars is at the bottom of your chart indicating increased chaos at home Remember what your objective is. You want to be happy.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Be patient with situations related to your health or a pet or your job at the beginning of the week. Whatever occurs might be restrictive for you or limit you in some way. It might also discourage you. Very soon this situation will pivot into something unexpected? You might have an argument with someone or feel you have to defend yourself. Equipment might break down. Something sudden and surprising will create a detour for you. It’s possible that this surprise will be pleasant. But it might also be a surprise that is a speedbump for you. (Oops.) Fortunately, relations with partners and close friends are warm and supportive, even though you are assertive now! Oh yeah!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
At the beginning of the week, you will need to be extra patient with kids or with a romantic partner because something will irk you. You might have to face increased restrictions or responsibilities. You can handle this because you have broad shoulders. However, be alert because right after that, an accident-prone time, especially for your kids, definitely exists. Caution! Likewise, romance will be a rocky road. This means that the first half of this week requires vigilance, awareness, patience and effort on your part. Fortunately, everything connected with your work and your health looks positive. Playful and social diversions also look promising! Yay me!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You might find it challenging dealing with an older family member at the beginning of the week (perhaps a parent) because you will be forced to deal with some kind of restrictions or rules and regulations. (A bit of a bummer.) Nevertheless, stay on your toes because shortly following that, you will encounter something unexpected at home. This is an accident-prone time for your home and family. Although it also could be that small appliances might break down or silly delays occur. Domestic arguments? Something will upset your home routine. Easy does it because with Mars in your sign, you are quite aggressive. Fortunately, Venus will encourage your playful side. (You still have it, don’t you?)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Be good to yourself this week. At the beginning of the week, you might feel depressed or fall into a state of negative thinking. (Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.) On the heels of this challenging beginning, something unexpected will occur. It’s an accident-prone time for you. Definitely! Therefore, slow down and be mindful of everything you say and do. On the upside, the same influence that can promote a sudden change of plans or an accident – can also trigger genius-like ideas because it’s easy for you to think outside of the box. Write down these original, clever thoughts because you might be glad to have them later. Meanwhile, family is supportive. Enjoy relaxing times at home. You might also have redecorating ideas to make things more pleasant where you live.
