(Feb. 19-March 20)
No matter what you're
doing, (and many of you are working from home) you are focused on money,
earnings and cash flow. Mercury in your sign makes you eager to talk to
everyone. And this week, Venus has changes signs, which brings a
two-week influence that will make you want to redecorate your digs and
enjoy the company of family. However, in the next six weeks, Mars will
be hiding in your chart, which triggers a time of self-denial. It means
you might not get credit for what you are actually doing because you
have to stay in the background. Bummer! Be careful of little
self-defeating acts. accept what is going on and make the best of it
because it's temporary. Meanwhile, if you think something fishy is going
on - it is! Watch your back.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You'll be glad to know that
fiery Mars is moving into your sign where it will stay for the next six
weeks. This happens only once every two years and when it occurs, it
boosts your energy and makes you PowerPoint on steroids! The placement
of the Sun also indicates that you are eager to move and be active with
short trips and conversations with everyone. Of course, these two
influences will make self-isolation at home particularly challenging for
you! Fortunately, you're a brainiac. You see the world as a global
village. You understand the power of like-minded individuals to make
positive changes. Romance with someone of an age difference might occur
now - probably online.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Good news! Because the Sun is at the very bottom of your chart right
now, it's easier for you to stay at home more than other signs. (Having
said that, more than other signs, you have a strong sense of social
responsibility to the community, so you would do this anyway.) Financial
difficulties arise this week. Something might stop your earnings or cash
flow. But this is temporary. You are resourceful and capable of making
long-range plans related to earnings, money and your job. Capricorns
never give up. You're the mountain goat! You know that difficulties are
actually character building. "No pain, no gain." Meanwhile, one can
always shop for a decent handbag online. "Yes, Virginia, there is a
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
It's play city for you! My
heart goes out to because you're the traveller of the zodiac and this is
the month when you want to be on vacation. What to do? An elaborate
picnic in the backyard? Virtual tours of the great museums of the world?
Skype calls to your friends in other countries? Certainly, your
relations with partners and close friends are warm and cozy now because
Venus is opposite your sign for the next two weeks. You're entering a
lovely month if you write, teach or edit because Mars will make you
identify strongly with your ideas and opinions. Oh yes - you will speak
up! Caution about coercing others to believe as you do. Not everyone
carries the Centaur's arrow of truth.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Oh my! You're in busy mode. Running around the house with an
outboard motor on your butt! Be happy that you're motivated to get
better organized and get a lot done. However, difficulties with family
members will require your patience. Patience and tolerance. (Those words
are in the dictionary.) You're the most strong-willed sign in the
zodiac, but without even knowing it, you can steamroller over others. Be
kind to the little people. Actually, because you are strong willed with
amazing self-discipline, people now look to you for support. (Especially
because more than any other sign, Scorpio works in the medical
profession, septic engineering, garbage and recycling and the morgues.)
We need you!
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You need harmony in your surroundings. This includes colour,
design, furniture arrangement, smells - anything that makes you feel
relaxed with your surroundings. This is why you need to suck it up and
go more than halfway when dealing with partners and close friends
because this will be your quickest road to peace. Peace! Remember your
objective. You want peace. Therefore, don't make a big deal about
anything. Relax. Meanwhile, opportunities in publishing, the media, the
law or medicine are now at hand if you are ready to work for them.
Parents will have challenges with their kids this week. But you can
handle this. Fortunately, your family will be a source of joy for you
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This week will be frustrating in areas related to your job, your work,
your health and possibly dealing with a pet. You might feel angry.
Actually, this same astrological influence gives you much energy that
you can channel in other directions. You can get a lot of work done,
especially work that requires concentrated focus and great discipline or
a careful technique. Working with metals will be excellent. The good
news is that people in authority admire you now. They see you as the
voice of reason. They also see you as someone to guide them, especially
in matters of peace, harmony and beauty. (That's not too shabby.)
(July 23-Aug. 22)
This is a frustrating time for Leos who are in self isolation because
more than any other time of the year, you want to get outta Dodge!
Fortunately, you are creative, so you will see ways to break the
monotony of your daily routine. Since you are a teacher and a performer
at heart, share your ideas via YouTube or Facebook with others. Give
people a three-minute performance of something that appeals to you.
You're a natural! Relations with friends are warm and supportive in a
calm, practical way. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, difficulties with
partners and close friends will arise Your partner will be obstinate,
stubborn and frozen in place. Unlike you who is cooperative, wise,
all-knowing and completely flexible. It's a pity.
(June 21-July 22)
You look mahvelous dahling,
mahvelous, because the Sun is at the top of your chart. (This is not
surprising because many Cancer people are nurses, caregivers and in the
health profession. Oh yes, you're the big tit.) This is an excellent
week to study or finish writing papers and manuscripts. Disputes about
inheritances and shared property or insurance issues will come to a head
but they will be resolved by the end of the week. (Good.) Meanwhile,
close friends and partners are supportive and a source of joy to you.
They appreciate your fabulous sense of humour. (Phyllis Diller was Sun
and Moon in Cancer.) "Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight."
(May 21-June 20)
Things will become more
pleasant for you because fair Venus moves into your sign this week to
stay for two weeks. This makes you extra charming and diplomatic! Yes,
we love you! (Your bathroom mirror is covered in kisses.) It's tough to
be in self-isolation because this is a popular time for you! However,
you can still reach out to others on line. Although you might feel
restless in the next six weeks (because you want to travel), instead you
can use this energy to study and learn something new. Explore
philosophies, ideas and seeing new places through virtual tours. A
conversation with a boss or parent will be significant.
(April 20-May 20)
There are two conflicting
signals coming to you from the universe. Right now, the placement of the
Sun makes you want to hide in self isolation. (Sound familiar?) However,
for the next six weeks, you will be super ambitious, which runs contrary
to the necessity of taking a backseat. Sure enough, your ambition will
be blocked this week by authorities, rules and regulations. No worries
because ultimately with careful planning, you will actually attract
money to you. Enjoy conversations and online interactions with younger
people, in particular because they will inspire you and vice a versa.
(March 21-April 19)
For the next six weeks, Mars will give lots of energy to the part of
your chart related to friends, groups and organizations. This will help
people who are active in essential jobs - caregivers, fire fighters and
those who are joining forces with others to keep us safe. For those at
home, in the next six weeks, you will be more active online interacting
with groups and friends. Plus, Venus now moves into the part of your
chart related to everyday contacts. This is good news! It gives you a
greater appreciation for the people you encounter in your daily world.
You will develop a greater appreciation for the love and support around
In these scary times, many of us wonder what we can do to help,
especially from home. I received an email saying some people on
Vancouver Island were starting to meditate-pray at 8 PM Pacific time
every night for 20 minutes (or how long you want). It's a chance to stop
and take a moment to send your energy and wishes of love and healing to
all beings - people and animals. I have been doing this and I like it!
It makes me feel better. Will it make others feel better? I don't know.
But I think it makes the people who are doing it feel better. Why not
give it a try? Take three deep, slow breaths....and then...very slowly,
let go of your cell phone.
