Check back next week for more great horoscopes by
(Feb. 19-March 20)
Once every 12 years,
lucky Jupiter sails across the top of your chart giving you a chance to
expand your influence in the world. That's what's happening this year
for you. Suddenly, people notice you. They admire you! Many of you are
getting praise, awards, kudos and promotions. Definitely, something is
happening to make others view you as a success in their eyes.
Fortunately, you're entering a lovely two-month window where you are
prepared to bust your buns to work hard to achieve your objectives.
Quite likely, you will do this at your job. However, you will also put
out this same energy to buff your bod or get in better shape. (Not a bad
idea, especially if you're starting to look like your passport photo.)
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Friendships are important
to you because more than any other sign, you are a natural net worker.
You understand the power of the collective - when people of like minds
join forces to make a difference in the world. This year you have more
than usual access to this power because you are popular. Not only do
friends appreciate you more, clubs and groups also admire your ability
to lead, mediate and make things happen. Meanwhile, fiery Mars is
opposite your sign for the next seven weeks, which might bring tension
and conflict to partnerships and close friendships. Take the high road.
Be the person you want to be.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Your energy might be flagging a bit because this is a low-energy month
for you. However, in a week or so, things will start to pick up. You'll
feel it. Nevertheless, your sex drive is amped, and I'm sure you can
feel that! At a more subtle level, many of you are experiencing some
personal growth and a deeper understanding of who you are, especially
with your spiritual values. This is important. We tend to overlook our
inner world compared to riches and so-called success. But what is true
wealth? Surely, it is whatever makes you happy and content. By the end
of this year, lucky Jupiter enters your sign, and this will boost your
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
This has been a fortunate
year for you in many ways because your ruler Jupiter is in your sign.
(This blessing lasts for a year and occurs only once every 12 years. The
next time you have this advantage will be 2031.) Jupiter attracts
wealth, good fortune, opportunities and interesting people to you.
(Admittedly, you might gain weight because it even attracts flesh to the
bone.) Enjoy the good life! But that's not all. Next year you will make
more money! (Mom always liked you best.) Meanwhile, grab every
opportunity to travel and expand your world in the next seven weeks
because this is what you really want to do. Veni vidi Visa! (We came. We
saw. We went shopping.)
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Well of course, the great news for your sign is that this is
your year to get richer. Ka-ching! Incidentally, if you were born late
in your sign, this will not kick in until late this year. (Astrology
depends on mathematics and the degrees of the planets.) But it will
happen. It's nice to have bucks in jeans and you deserve it. Meanwhile,
job changes and residential moves have kept you in a state of flux this
year (and next year). This means you have to stay on your toes and keep
your eyes open. Which way is the wind blowing? One thing is certain,
around 2021-22, your home scene looks fabulous!
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Oh boy! This is your month because this is the only time all
year when the Sun is at high noon in your chart, which means
symbolically, it is "shining down on you". Do we care? Yes we do! This
astrological aspect means that this light is flattering, which is why
everyone is so impressed with you, even if you don't do anything
special. Obviously, this is the time to use your positive energy and
optimism to promote your agenda. Go after what you want because doors
will open for you! Meanwhile, tackle major repairs at home and do
anything you can to secure your home base for you and your family. Just
do it. Ironically, retrograde Mercury might help.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This continues to be a popular time for you. In particular, you will
enjoy hanging out with creative, artistic people. In fact, you'll feel
so chummy that for some, a friend might become a lover. Please remember
that this is your year to improve your home or your real-estate scene.
You can buy a better home, or rent a better home or improve your
existing home through renovations, repairs and purchases. Likewise, your
family life will be happier and family members will be more generous to
each other. Make plans for a big vacation next year because that's also
in the books.
(July 23-Aug. 22)
Most people think you are dramatic, playful, theatrical and the life of
the party. And this is often true. But the deeper truth is, you are
actually a serious person more than many people realize. Nevertheless,
this is your year to take a vacation, enjoy hotels, parties,
recreational theme parks, sports events as well as rewarding times with
your kids. Romance is also super amped! Grab your chance for fun this
year because next year is your turn to improve your job or get a better
job. Along with this, your health will improve then as well. Not too
shabby! That's why now is the time to get out and have some fun! Capisce?
(June 21-July 22)
You're still the star of
the show because the Sun and Venus are both in your sign. In fact, by
the end of the week, retrograde Mercury will join them. This means you
have lots of energy and charisma. Oh yeah, you're the belle of the ball!
Do not forget that your good fortune this year is all about improving
your job or getting a better job. You can really do this! Likewise, you
can improve your health. (Would I kid you?) Admittedly, partnerships are
challenging right now. In fact, some that have outlived their usefulness
will end. (You hate letting go.) In the next month, you will put out
more energy to earn and spend money.
(May 21-June 20)
You're still focused on
money and cash flow. You are also starting to rev your engines because
in the next seven weeks, you will be more direct, more proactive and a
much stronger communicator and fighter for your own rights than usual.
(Wow!) This year is a beneficial year for partnerships and close
friendships for you. Things are more chummy. In fact, it's a great year
for Geminis to get married. Ta da! Unfortunately, if you're in a
partnership, your partner is likely earning less. (Bummer.) Things will
start to change next year because wealth will come to you from other
sources. Ka-ching! Keep the faith.
(April 20-May 20)
Around 1999 and again in
2012 were both significant times for you. Both of these years ushered in
a change but in a different way. The good news about this year is that
you can benefit from the wealth and resources of others. One obvious
example will be that your spouse or partner will earn more and you will
benefit indirectly through this. However, many of you might also receive
an inheritance or money from the government or a payout from insurance.
This week you will start to focus on increased activity and chaos on the
home front, which will continue for seven weeks. (Gulp.) Do what you can
to stay organized and keep the peace.
(March 21-April 19)
This is a powerful time for you because you are in the peak of a 30-year
journey of Saturn in your chart, which means you are in your time of
harvest. This means the seeds you have planted in the past are now
coming to fruition. Obviously, this can be good or bad. Or both? Cut
your losses and focus on your wins. Next year, you will really shine!
Opportunities will come your way, promotions, kudos and a chance to put
your name up in lights! This year you have abundant chances to travel or
get further education and do something that expands your experience of
the world. Meanwhile, this week, you're getting ready to par-tay for the
next month ahead! ("Did you bring the cooler?")
Someone once said that the future is much like the present only longer.
(And let's face it - it's more expensive.) This week, aside from the
Full Moon on Tuesday, the planetary aspects are not dramatic. Therefore,
let's look at the big picture about what's happening this year because
after all, we're half way through and counting. Where have you been and
where are you going? I like to know where I'm going. Of course, I'm not
like Steven Wright -- he's a peripheral visionary. He can see the future
- but only way off to the side. One thing is certain -- no one goes
before their time, unless the boss leaves early.
