Check back next week for more great horoscopes by
(Feb. 19-March 20)
This is a time of mixed
energy for you so you can really pick and choose what you want to do.
The Sun and Mercury will pull your attention to home, family and your
personal life. Many will cocoon at home and relax among familiar
surroundings. Some will be more involved with a parent. You might tackle
home repairs you've been avoiding. Venus promotes schmoozing with others
and helps you to appreciate your daily surroundings and feel
affectionate to everyone. Mars urges you to play, flirt, and be socially
active and competitive in sports. It also amps your sex drive! This
means you're in the driver's seat! You can pick and choose what you want
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
As the Sun changes signs
this week, it introduces you to the most fun-loving four-week window of
the year! Yay! You're heading into a fantastic time for a vacation. It's
also fantastic for all kinds of fun-loving, playful situations. Accept
invitations to party. Enjoy the arts, movies and musical performances.
Visit galleries and museums. Have fun activities with kids. Sports will
appeal - and yes, romance will be toujours l'amour! This is also a
wonderful time to redecorate and make your home more attractive,
especially because you will entertain.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You're the real deal because you face reality. This week the Sun ushers
in a four-week window where you will set high standards for yourself.
You want to be efficient; you want to be effective; you want the most
bang for your buck! This is why you will give more thought to how you
manage your life. You hate waste and likewise, you hate to waste your
energy. You're not afraid of hard work because "no pain no gain" is your
motto. However, fiery Mars is opposite your sign makeing you impatient.
Note: The impatience is on your part. Yes, they seem annoying but it's
through your eyes. Reward and pamper yourself so that you
are more patient with everyone. You deserve a massage or a pedicure.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
The Sun is your source of
energy and because it will be opposite your sign for the next four
weeks, this means (symbolically speaking) it is as far away from you as
it gets all year. This is why your energy will flag. You will need more
sleep. Nevertheless, this polarized position of the Sun will increase
your focus on partnerships and close friendships. You will be more
engaged, more talkative and more observant about your style of relating
to those who are close to you. Meanwhile, Mars will amp your sex drive!
Relations with coworkers are lovely due to Venus.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You are a passionate, intense sign and this week, you enter a
four-week window that will be also be passionate and intense! (Go easy
on the coffee.) For starters, sex will be affectionate and memorable.
We're talking great diary fodder if you had time to write. (We only
write in diaries when we break up.) The stars are really smiling on you
when it comes to relationships because not only is your passion aroused,
boosting your interest in physical intimacy, but with fair Venus
opposite your sign, you find it easy to get along with others. Egos will
be softer. Cooperation will be easier. A sudden chance to travel midweek
might fall in your lap. Stay tuned!
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You love to interact with people, especially in a beautiful
setting where the glassware sparkles and the conversation is
scintillating. In the next four weeks, you want to travel! If you can
blow town, please do so. If you can't, then at least, get away on a
short trip because you need a change of scenery. You will also adore
learning something new so by all means, sign up for a course, hear
lectures, learn a new language and talk to people from other cultures so
you can expand your world. Sex will be hot and memorable. Woot! You will
also receive gifts and favours (even cash) from others. Because your
ambition is aroused, you'll do something exciting!
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
The Sun is at high noon in your chart for four weeks. This happens only
once a year and it symbolizes that the Sun is shining a spotlight on you
-- and this spotlight is flattering! As a result, in the next four
weeks, bosses, parents and VIPs will admire you and think you are super
competent and capable. Do not do anything to dissuade them of this
notion. This is not the time for false modesty. Travel for pleasure will
appeal and perhaps something exciting will happen midweek that makes
this a possibility because on Wednesday, your relations with friends or
groups will bring a surprise. Sounds exciting!
(July 23-Aug. 22)
Every sign has a ruling planet and your ruler is the Sun. This is why
you bring energy to every situation and relationship. This week the Sun
moves into your House of Friendships, which means you will be more
popular in the next four weeks! You will be eager to socialize and be
more active with clubs and organizations. You might take the helm and
direct the activities of a group. You will also hang out with younger
people, and will give thought to your hopes and dreams for the future.
Venus at the top of your chart encourages warm relations with bosses and
VIPs, perhaps even a romance. (Especially since Mars indicates secret
love affairs.) You saucy devil!
(June 21-July 22)
Because your birthday is a
month away, your personal year is drawing to an end. This means the next
four weeks are the perfect time to think about what you want for
yourself in your new year ahead. For starters, how do you want it to be
different from last year? What changes would you like to see in your
life? This has been (and continues to be) your year to improve your job
and your health. If this hasn't happened yet - get on it! This is also a
significant time because Saturn is opposite your sign creating a strain
on partnerships. (You stay in the wrong relationship too long because
you hate to let go.) Midweek, something exciting will rev your engines!
(May 21-June 20)
Ta da! The Sun enters your
sign at the beginning of this week, which is the only time all year that
this happens. It will stay for four weeks boosting your energy and
attracting favourable opportunities and important people to you.
Obviously, this is your turn to howl! Since things are going your way -
use this to your best advantage! Mercury is also in your sign making you
talkative, chatty and eager to meet others. It's an excellent time to
give a talk or explain or sell something. Because this is the beginning
of your personal year - make some goals - with deadlines. Secret love
affairs and flirtations will take place for some.
(April 20-May 20)
You're the financial wizard
of the zodiac. (Incidentally, you are also the collector of the zodiac
because you appreciate beautiful things.) As the Sun changes signs at
the beginning of this week, likewise, your focus will shift to money,
cash flow and earnings for the next four weeks. You will give more
thought to money-making ideas and how to boost your income. You'll be
more hands-on about how you earn your living. (Note: The next few weeks
are a marvellous time to buy wardrobe treasures for yourself.)
Meanwhile, pay attention to everything you say and do on Wednesday
because something unexpected will change your routine. Oops!
(March 21-April 19)
You will love the next four weeks because as the Sun changes signs on
Tuesday, it ushers in a big shift! The pace of your days will accelerate
and you will start to be booked with appointments, errands, tasks,
visits, conversations with siblings and relatives plus increased
reading, writing and studying. You'll be Alice's White Rabbit, "I'm
late, I'm late for a very important date!" You will be curious. You will
meet new people and see new places. Many will read new books and delight
in learning new facts. Accept this and let the dishes and the laundry
pile up - a bit. Midweek, something unusual will impact home and family.
The Sun goes through all 12 signs in a year, which means it is in each
sign for one month. The Moon goes through all 12 signs in one month,
which means it is in each sign two and a half days. We feel the changes
of the Moon; however, because the Sun is in each sign for much longer -
we get a totally different direction in our lives during that time. This
is because the Sun not only energizes us, it also channels that energy,
for example to work hard or perhaps to play hooky or escape on a
vacation. This week the Sun enters Gemini, which makes all of us busier,
more active and curious about learning new things! Very likely, someone
shorter than you will ask you to name your three favourite reptiles.
