Nicols' weekly here. She writes like she knows you.
March 1st to March 8th
This week there is
an exciting dance between lucky, moneybags Jupiter, unpredictable Uranus
and fair Venus. When spontaneous Uranus dances with money planets, this
means pennies from heaven. (Oh yeah.) However, hold the phone. Do not
immediately bet all your money on long odds that pay off big because
there are no guarantees. But it is a fact that many of you will receive
a boon or a windfall this week. Read your sign to find out where this
might happen in your life. But I repeat - there are no guarantees for
this influence, which admittedly does exist.
