Spring is springing with relish; the Sun, Mercury and Venus are all in the sign of Aries now, and this really spurs us all to break the mold if it doesn’t fit! New ideas are emerging even as we are still in recession; it seems the adaptation process is well under way and we are figuring out the new terrain and how to make it work. Action is being taken where before it was only a lot of talking and conflicting ideas. Sometimes it’s better to let those who know what they’re doing get on with it and go on about our business.
There is entirely too much opinion-throwing, which holds up everything and really isn’t necessary. Sometimes we argue just to feel like we had our say, with no real need. Our next task is to be more experimental; let’s just see how it goes. Sometimes the best decisions are made on the fly, and we are perfectly capable of filling in the gaps. This is an extraordinary time and we are ordinary people. We are each unique individuals, but not so special as to be excluded from the processes of growth and change.
Spring is here now, and off we go with our seasonal rituals that make us feel grounded. Let’s enjoy it!
Aries (March 21- April 19): Out of the gate you are in the spotlight with no less than three planets in your sign, including the Sun! What a rush! Saturn in your opposing sign of Libra is putting the brakes on sufficiently enough to keep you from taking corners on two wheels and getting a ticket. Pluto in your sector of creative expression is making sure you use all this energy in a way that encourages evolution of character. Wow, that a week this will be for you!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Three planets in your sector of Endings remove what you don’t need, either by your own will or not; if you have health issues, look to Saturn in your sector of work/health, because that is what is causing a drag, either for better or for worse. Given that we’re moving into tax time and you really don’t like to part with your money, you might be on the grumpy side, but cheer up! Pluto is on your side in your sector of spirituality/expansion so you’re good to go for the long haul.
Gemini (May 21- June 20): Your goals are drawing all of your attention now, and new friends are entering your life to help you achieve them. Don’t procrastinate or try to talk your way out of tending to the necessary details! Sometimes you just have to tackle them and bite the bullet. Saturn in your sector of creativity will help you with that one. It’s there to help you organize your thoughts. At the moment though, you are filled with the fire of inspiration. Don’t talk about it too much or the energy will dissipate.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): You are under the gun now! A major T-Square between the Sun, Mercury and Pluto put you under a lot of pressure this week, so take it easy and pace yourself. You could easily get overwhelmed and dissolve into a little puddle of useless tears, or you can come bursting out waving your claws and take on all comers. When you do that, you are downright scary and sometimes that is necessary to deter the riffraff. Do what it takes to stay centered this week (within legal parameters, of course)!
Leo (July 23 – August 22): Fire is the element of the day now, and you are well set for an influx of raw energy this week. Your sector of expansion/spirituality is loaded and being boosted by passionate Mars in your sign. You are naturally cautious and reserved, but this week you will have to participate and perhaps clamber for a better position in the workplace that comes available. This week will be intense, but it will calm down.
Virgo (August 23 – September 21): You earthy little thing, with so much fire in the Heavens it’s hard to ground yourself! Pluto is really helping you right now in this time of transformation, and you need to stay focused. Tempting distractions await you in your sector of intimacy/shared assets, and you may get an impulsive spark; be sure to do your homework and consider things before you jump. Fortunately, you are well informed so you will be able to make expedient decisions.
Libra (September 22 – October 23): Three planets in your sector of Relationship, and you may feel like the odds are not in your favor. With Saturn asleep (retrograde) in your sign, you are able to adjust the weights and balances; your friends are there for you, with strong Mars in your sector of friendships/goals. This will be an excellent week to spend as much time with your best friends as you possibly can, so out and do stuff and soak in their good vibes!
Scorpio (October 24- November 22): New things are popping up all over the place for you this week; three planets are now in your sector of work/health, and you may be starting a new lifestyle in terms of health. Overseeing the process is Saturn in your sector of Endings, so whatever you are throwing out wasn’t good for you anyway. You’re ready to emerge from inside and venture out; you are the Observer and you really are finding some new stuff to think about!
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 20): This week finds you getting your ducks in a row to launch a new endeavor; three planets occupy your sector of creative expression. If you’re a single Archer and have been looking for a companion, this period of time also yields some good possibilities. Mars gaining ground in your sector of Expansion gets you in the mood to travel, go back to school or do something to broaden your mind and experiences. Ah, good times!
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): As if you needed more energy on the Home front, now the Sun joins Mercury and Venus in that sector. You’d better fire up the barbecue now and get used to it! Mars is moving at regular speed now in your sector of intimacy/shared assets, so you and your spouse have some socializing to do and some moldy corners to scrape out. You want to capture a different idea or way of thinking now; if you can, go somewhere different for a bit.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 20): Your sector of short trips/communication is loaded with three heavenly bodies pulsing away; retrograde Saturn opposes two of them from your sector of expansion. Your ideas are beginning to take shape and you see tangible results. This is a good thing! You are very good at bossing others, and while it’s difficult for you to get your own feet long enough to really get something done, as long as you keep track of things! Of course, you’re not the best list-maker in the world but you do have your own system!
Pisces (February 21 – March 20): More good news on the economic front for you, especially if you are networking and trying out some new things that have short-term interest. Long term is still unstable, but you are gaining ground now and this is good! You are all about distribution and returns are coming your way if they’re not already at your doorstep. Jupiter in your sign is really doing well for you and Mars lending his fire to your sector of work/health is providing the needed fuel. Excellent.
