Check back next week for more great horoscopes by
(Feb. 19-March 20)
The Sun is still at the top of your chart
casting a flattering light on you, which is why you look great to
bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. Accept increased responsibilities,
if anyone asks you, because you will shine (and you won't have to do
anything special). Schmooze with others because Venus paves the way for
warm friendships. (A friend could become a lover.) Disputes about shared
property are likely and might continue for months ahead. (Groan.)
Meanwhile, your gonads are in overdrive and intimate relationships are
sexy. Where you can really pull things together now relates to preparing
yourself for a career peak in the next few years. Move forward with
travel and plans for further education and training. Just do it.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Your popularity continues! In particular, many
of you are talking to younger people right now - yada yada yada. This is
an ideal time to formulate future goals and pursue them. For months to
come, you will look for ways to travel because you want adventure and a
chance to expand your experience of the world. Travel to foreign
countries, exotic places; and grab any chance to learn something new.
Many of you will go back to school. Others will forge ahead in
publishing, the media, higher education, medicine and the law. But in
the bigger picture, this week you feel more solid than ever about your
life direction, especially related to your job. Job improvements make
you feel like you are on the right track. Finally!
(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 confident about who you are. Meanwhile, something
will trigger enormous ambition in you, more ambition (for the next year)
than you have felt for decades. Do some quiet planning so that you can
strategize your new year. After all, you might as well focus all this
ambition with some direction to get the most bang for your buck. Your
greatest opportunity right now is your ability to stabilize
relationships. Some of you will sign on the dotted line with
professional partnerships or discussions of marriage. Others will expand
their involvement in the world because of a relationship with a group.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
The Sun and Mercury are still in your sign
boosting your energy, bringing opportunities to you. Fair Venus brings
chances to make money through the arts or dealing in beautiful objects.
Venus also encourages you to buy beautiful things for yourself and
others. Involvement in classes and groups will be competitive and
active, and this will continue for months. But where you can really
solidify things has to do with loans, mortgages, shared property, debt,
taxes and anything you own jointly with others. Here is where you are on
solid ground. You can get wealth from others. Ask for a mortgage or loan
because you can quietly secure things for yourself. The resources of
others will help you!
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Money, earnings, cash flow and possessions continue to be a top
priority for you. Take note that you can boost your earnings through all
kinds of communications: writing, editing, acting, teaching, sales,
marketing or giving talks. Your words are golden! However, the most
significant thing taking place in your chart is that a new pathway,
which opened up for you in the last year, now shows marvelous signs of
expansion in the future. This could lead to future travel, publishing or
advances in the media, medicine and the law. Quite likely, your success
will be more than you ever hoped for. Some will dabble in secret love
affairs. All of you must be aware of secret enemies as well. Hmmm. (I
hate that part.)
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Your busy pace continues with short trips, increased reading and
writing, errands plus conversations with everyone. You're on the go.
You're also puttering around home and redecorating (something you love
to do). Fortunately, you have the energy to follow through on these busy
plans. Incidentally, this energy will last for months, which probably
means many of you are exercising more than usual. But what is
significant right now is that you are starting to feel financially
secure. In fact, not only do you feel more solid in terms of your cash
flow, you feel more hopeful about what your career will generate in the
future. Looking swell!
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Home, family and
domestic matters continue to be a strong priority. You're working hard
to earn money and also spending it! Plus social diversions, romance, the
arts and playful times with children are also appealing. This is all
good stuff. But where you can really make a shift - and you will notice
it this week - is your relations with others in groups. This could be
small clubs, classes, organizations or professional associations. Now
you will start to feel confident in your dealings with these groups. You
feel you belong. You feel you have a future with these people. In fact,
your popularity might generate a lifelong friend. This is reassuring.
(July 23-Aug. 22)
This is a playful time for you because you want to socialize
with friends, slip away on a vacation and enjoy romantic love affairs. A
work-related romance might begin for some. Basically, you want to have
fun! Plus you feel creative, which is why many of you will dream up
ideas related to the hospitality industry or the entertainment world.
Hey --this is great! But where you can really make strides will be doing
something to solidify your home base. You can strengthen where you live
or your family structure. Something here will make you feel richer and
more secure. It's as if you figured out how to bring it all together.
(This will also help you sleep better at night.)
(June 21-July 22)
You want to pull your act together and get
organized. Good fortune is yours because lucky Jupiter is in your sign
until next summer. (Make the most of this because it won't happen again
for 12 years.) As mentioned last week, Mars will stir up lots of
activity on the home front creating exploding energy and chaos because
of renovations, moves and visiting guests for most of the next year.
(Gulp.) This could also create conflict at home. But right now, you can
maximize your chances to express your creativity or use your talents.
This is also an excellent time to figure out what you want to do when
you grow up. A lovely stabilizing influence connected with children,
your social life and your creative expression in the arts exists now.
Make it work for you.
(May 21-June 20)
Contradictory influences exist right now for
your sign. (This is often a theme for Gemini, I think.) One part of you
wants to play, flirt, slip away on vacation, explore the arts and enjoy
parties and fun times, especially related to the hospitality industry
and the entertainment world. You might also be involved with playful
times with children. Trust me, this is a strong influence that will last
for almost a year! However, another part of you wants to work hard
because you're keen to earn money and boost your income. But you can't
do both, can you? (Even though there are two of you.) This juggling will
take a bit of self-discipline.
(April 20-May 20)
Partnerships and relationships have been
challenging. No question. Those that have outlived their usefulness will
end. This week in particular, some kind of understanding will come to a
head. It could be about a relationship or it could be about a necessary
readjustment so that a relationship will endure. There is something
hopeful, especially in the future, in these discussions and, at the same
time, something permanent and long-lasting is implied. No doubt
conversations about shared property, taxes, debt and anything you own
jointly with others will be significant. Amidst all this, you are keen
to work! Busy you.
(March 21-April 19)
One of the most important opportunities for you now is a chance to
enrich your home life. This could be in financial terms, which means you
can move to a better home, or add to or expand your home, or buy
something for your home so that you feel richer. This is one
possibility. You might also pay down your mortgage or do something that
makes you feel financially secure in your home. By the same token, this
can apply to family relationships. Something might happen that
emotionally deepens the relations between you and family members.
Opportunities to use the wealth and resources of others are optimal this
week. Look for ways to expand your world through travel and adventure.
Sometimes Jupiter and Saturn are at odds with each other; and
sometimes they're working in tandem. ("Working in tandem" makes me think
of a team of oxen, yet I've never seen a team of oxen. Plus to me, team
means Go Canucks! But I digress.) This week Jupiter and Saturn are
beautifully aligned, which introduces an element of stability for
everyone in their lives. Stability is wonderful, especially if at the
same time, you can reach out and maximize whatever you are doing. (Yeah,
I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.)
