All Signs: This week is a recap — a reality check. It’s a quick look at the bigger picture to see what’s happening with all the planets for each sign. Think of it as a telegram from the heavens — “Here’s the skinny.” The big thing to be aware of this week is perhaps some tension building up before the Full Moon in Taurus on Sunday. It might make a lot of people want to eat good food to soothe their soul. It will electrify the foodies. Just remember: It’s not the minutes at the table that put on weight, it’s the seconds.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You’re working hard and delegating as well. (“Go do this.”) Things on the home front and with family continue to be positive and mutually beneficial. This blessing to your home means this year is a great time to explore real estate opportunities, or improve your home, or move to something better and bigger. You can go forward more easily now with loans, mortgages, taxes, bills and debt. Negotiations about shared property will move more quickly. Meanwhile, Venus at the top of your chart paves the way for dealing with people in authority. In fact, they are so impressed with you that a new romance might develop with someone older, richer or worldlier. Woo-woo!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Continue to get more sleep — you need it. This is a good time to observe your style of relating to partners and close friends because you might learn a lot. Fiery Mars makes you competitive in sports and keen to have fun. You want to do your own thing. Hot sex definitely appeals. However, this playful energy could create conflict with your kids. Be patient. Grab every chance to travel for pleasure because you’ll love this. You’ll also love learning something new that expands your world. Your plans are larger and more expansive now because you’re starting to realize that many of the limitations you thought were imposed from without are actually self-imposed. (“It was me!”)
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You’re still working hard to be efficient and productive but now — good news — your efforts will be more effective. Errors, delays and goofy mistakes will diminish. This is a good time to jump on the bandwagon with a new health regime (diet, exercise or both). Keep your pockets open because gifts, goodies and favors from others continue to come your way. (Yes!) Not only are you blessed with the wealth and resources of others right now, but opportunities to boost your own income continue to exist, now and well into 2014. However, chaos and increased activity at home will test your patience. Just cope with what’s happening as best you can and keep the jokes coming.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Things are looking good! This is such a playful time for you, parties will find you even if you’re not looking for them. Sports events, vacations, the theater, movies, social excursions and fun flirtations are tops on your list because you want to be free to express yourself and do your own thing. Basically, you feel more fun-loving and light-hearted, plus with Venus opposite your sign, relations with partners are warm and cozy. And Jupiter continues to bring you good fortune well into 2014! Sheesh! Because you identify strongly with your ideas and beliefs, a few arguments might take place here or there. This is a strong time for those of you who sell, write, market, teach, act or need to persuade others. (ìWhere do I sign?”)
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Home, family life and your private world continue to be your primary focus although you’re starting to feel more in control of everything. (Finally.) Home repairs or residential moves will make many of you more hands-on than usual. Fortunately, work is relatively easy. Some of you might get praise or even a raise. Because things are so copacetic, others will start a work-related romance. (Hey, ya never know.) Because you have a sense of being more in control, you’re working harder than ever to earn money. You want things. In fact, impulse shopping is likely. (Leos have class and their home is their castle.)
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This is a busy time for you with short trips, errands, increased reading and writing plus conversations with everyone. But your efficiency has improved. Transportation delays will diminish now. (Thank gawd.) You’re bouncing with energy because fiery Mars is in your sign and Mars rules your muscles, your aggression and your sexual energy. (Oh yeah.) This gives you drive and determination to accomplish a lot of things, so make the most of it. Fair Venus attracts romance, social invitations and opportunities to express your creative side as well as more time for fun and play with children. On top of this, your popularity rating is high. You’re busy! (But fun busy.)
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
“Show me the money!” You continue to focus on ways to boost your earnings as well as how to stay on top of your financial scene so that you’re getting the most bang for your buck. A few weeks ago, this was a bit sloppy — but you have pulled in the reins and you’re back in control. Nevertheless, your desire to redecorate and tweak your digs might cost money. Your public reputation and professional stance in your community are excellent now. Nevertheless, you’re doing something behind the scenes that takes a lot of energy. (For some, this is an extra curricular romance that is a secret.) This is a good time to enjoy warm, close times with family. Invite the gang over for good food and drink. (“More whiskey and fresh horses for my men!”)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Fair Venus makes you diplomatic and charming with others, which means social chitchat is friendly, witty and smooth, so you are really in your element because the Sun and Mercury are also in your sign. Hey — what more could you ask for? Travel and chances to explore new places and ideas are still at hand and will continue this way until next year. This same influence will allow you to promote yourself in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. All this increased enthusiasm could create a competition with someone, possibly a friend or someone in a group. If you align your goals with this person then the outcome is simply a win-win situation, good for everyone.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
There are mixed signals for your sign at this time because Mars high in your chart arouses your ambition. You’re keen to achieve or accomplish something right now. Nevertheless, you’re treading water or staying in the background for some reason. It’s like you’re waiting in the wings for your cue to leap out into centre stage. Perhaps this is why you are slipping off when no one’s looking to buy beautiful goodies and treasures for yourself and loved ones. Shopping therapy? You can get away with this because the wealth and resources of others benefit you now. This continues to be a good time to get a loan or ask for a mortgage. Ka-ching. (Looking good.)
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
This is a great time to shop for wardrobe goodies because you like what you see in the mirror. You feel attractive, charming, and indeed you are! Youíre so magnetic, some people are mesmerized by you. Enjoy your increased popularity, especially with younger people. Grab every opportunity to travel and broaden your horizons because you can do this now. You can also benefit from partnerships and dealing with members of the general public. In fact, this is a good time (the whole year) to enter into new partnerships. Experts in any field can benefit you, so by all means sit down with someone and restructure your long-term goals. How can you make your dreams a reality?
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
People in authority continue to look favorably on you. (Just assume they’re right — you are great.) If asked to take on increased responsibilities, say yes. You won’t have to do anything special to dazzle anyone. Romance is hot because your sex drive is amped. However, disputes about shared property, inheritances and anything you own jointly with others might occur now. Meanwhile, your health is strong and anything related to your job is blessed. If you don’t like your job, look for another one. Or look for ways to improve your job because you can do this. (Your evil boss might be transferred out of here any day now.) Secret love affairs are in the picture for many of you. Be discreet.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Travel anywhere if you can because you’re eager to expand your horizons and grab more out of life. You will have to be patient with others because Mars opposite your sign makes you easily annoyed with those who are close to you. (You are part of this formula — it’s not just them. But hey, it’s mostly them.) Basically, you want to play! You want to enjoy vacations, romantic escapades, sports events and fun activities. Children are a strong focus for you this year and might trigger your ability to connect with expressing your creative talents. Kids do it all the time. Take a course or make an effort to learn something new. Be a tourist in your own city. Hang out with creative people to stimulate your own creativity and joie de vivre.
