Check back next week for more great horoscopes by
(Feb. 19-March 20)
Lucky you! Opportunities
for vacations, socializing, exploring the arts, enjoying parties and
sports events plus being involved with kids activities are all topics on
your menu this week. In other words, you want to have fun! You want to
play! In addition, fair Venus opposite your sign promotes and enhances
all your relations with others, even your enemies. Yes, your social
calendar is promising! The only downside is that as Mercury begins to
slow down before it goes retrograde, you will experience snafus, errors
and frustrations at work. No getting around this. Just grin and bear it.
Continue to look for opportunities to expand your world through travel
and further education and training.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
This week you want to get
better organized. (This has been your theme song very recently.) You're
working hard to feel like you are on top of your game. Likewise, you
want your health to be tops as well. High standards! Bravo! Keep your
pockets open because you will benefit from the wealth and resources of
others this week. This is the perfect time to decide how to divide or
share something. With Mars in your sign, you'll have no trouble standing
up for your own best interests. Meanwhile, Venus makes intimacy
memorable. Your sex drive is heightened. In view of the fact that
ex-partners are back on the scene, this will be interesting for some of
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
The Sun is still opposite your sign, which draws your focus to
friendships and partnerships this week. These one-to-one relationships
are important to you. You can also learn more about yourself from these
relationships. Meanwhile, travel for pleasure appeals. Romance with
someone different or from another culture might also arise. You are
working hard to earn money but you're also spending it! As Mercury slows
down and goes retrograde this month, this will help you to finish and
wrap up old details regarding inheritances, taxes, insurance issues and
shared property. You will get things done with amazing speed. Voila!
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
This is another intense
week for you. Issues are black-and-white. Everything matters. Many of
you will be focused on inheritances, shared property, insurance issues,
taxes and debt. All this intensity also translates into sexual energy.
Oh yes, you're passionate! Some of you are involved in a romance with a
boss or someone older or more established. You might be very bold about
going after what you want because Mars lends energy to your
communication style right now. Travel plans might be delayed or
cancelled. Bummer. If travelling during Mercury retrograde, ideally its
best to go someplace you've been before. Considering how much you travel
- the world is at your fingertips!
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Many of you are dealing with profound situations and
contemplating the big, serious questions of life. This might provoke
escapist tendencies for some of you, which is why you want to blow town.
Ah yes, travel beckons! You will also appreciate any chance that comes
your way to learn something new. Even though your communications with
others are unusually direct and to the point right now, you are having a
wonderful time schmoozing with friends. Be aware that as this month
progresses, you will have more and more opportunities to run into
parents, bosses, teachers and authority figures from your past. No need
to click your heels but do be ready for this. Old contacts might prove
to be helpful?
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Even you might be surprised at the degree to which you will
go in order to seek privacy. You will want to hide at home and keep a
low profile. Don't worry; this is just what's happening. No biggie. When
the Sun enters your sign next Sunday, you will suddenly step out, centre
stage, flying your colours! In the meantime, continue to be patient with
close friends and partners while Mars is opposite your sign. It is what
it is and you have no choice. Mercury is in your sign now slowing down
before it goes retrograde, so you will encounter silly delays, errors,
mixed-up communications, missed appointments, misplaced items -- and you
will wonder if you're losing it. Don't worry. You're not. Meanwhile, you
can boost your income. Enjoy buying beautiful things for yourself and
loved ones. "For me? Thank you!"

(July 23-Aug. 22)
This continues to be a powerful time for you because the Sun is in your
sign rejuvenating you and giving you a boost of energy! This placement
of the Sun will also attract favourable situations and people to you.
Meanwhile Venus sweetens all your words with others. People will enjoy
talking to you, especially relatives, siblings and neighbours. This is
an excellent week for writers, actors, teachers and those of you in
sales. Disputes about inheritances and shared property might wear you
down. You don't need this. Remember: Your first loss is your cheapest
loss. If looking for work, return to places you previously applied or
where you worked before. To make money, "go backwards."
(June 21-July 22)
You're charming and
diplomatic this week, especially talking to someone older. Someone will
seek out your advice. (It will please you to learn how much someone
cares about you.) An unexpected short trip is likely. You might also be
delighted with your surroundings for some reason. Trust your moneymaking
ideas this week because they are solid. In the bigger picture, where you
want to put your effort, is into you. Yes, you. Take a realistic look in
the mirror. How can you improve your image? Different hair? Something
new to wear? Ideas? You're not being indulgent. Now is the time because
the New Moon is in your sign, and it's the only one all year! Act on it.
(May 21-June 20)
Money, cash flow, earnings
and financial negotiations are still a primary focus for you. This could
be due to real-estate negotiations, which are favourable at this time.
Cash flow decisions might also relate to opportunities to redecorate and
fix up your digs. You will definitely enjoy entertaining at home as
well, which can be costly. And of course, exciting plans to travel also
require money. Some will divert money towards education and classes.
Unfortunately, cheques in the mail will be late. In fact, cancelled
trips, confused communications and transportation delays will be par for
the course as your ruler Mercury starts to slow down. These delays and
errors are silly and frustrating but they are not major. They just make
your teeth itch
(April 20-May 20)
You cannot ignore that this
is a busy fast-paced week because it's a busy, fast-paced month! Just go
with the flow and keep smiling. Venus will bring you many opportunities
to party and schmooze with others. Romance is blessed. Flirtations
abound! Sports events and playful activities with children will delight.
Nevertheless, Mars at the top of your chart keeps your ambition aroused,
which is why you are relentless about doing whatever you have to do to
complete your goals. And you will succeed! Meanwhile, a special family
occasion will attract relatives to your doorstep. Stock the fridge.
You'll have lots of opportunities to trade lies and talk about the bad
(March 21-April 19)
This week, you will continue to focus on home and family. Your
interaction with a parent might well be significant. Fortunately,
coworkers are supportive, which is always a welcomed thing. You might
get a raise at work and certainly praise from coworkers and bosses. Your
challenge is to be patient with friends and members of groups.
(Something annoying here.) Be especially patient with someone with whom
you might feel competitive. Grrr. Meanwhile, old flames will be back on
the scene. Oh yes. You can count on this. Grab your sexiest hat, wear it
at a serious angle and remind them of what they're missing. You've still
got what it takes!
This week the Sun is in Cancer, Mercury is in Leo, Venus is in Virgo and
Mars is in Aquarius. (Naturally Jupiter is still in Scorpio and Saturn
is in Capricorn.) Basically, it's a gentle week. But lo! What news from
yonder modem breaks? Could it be that winged Mercury doth prepare to
slow down? For sooth, 'tis true! Slowly, slowly before it goes
hurlyburly retrograde on Wednesday, July 25 creating much ado about
nothing until August 18. Isn't over then? Nay! All will not be at rest
until naughty Mercury reaches the starry degree it held when first it
turned - and that degree presents itself on September 2. Till then -
bite my thumb!
