Ready For Some Fun?

I’ll tell you what, next month is going to be such a screwy mess with Mercury going retrograde straight through the holidays I suggest we party now, this week! This week is the turnaround from the gnarly, skanky and downright nasty stuff that’s had us all so discouraged in one way or another.

First and foremost, Jupiter and Venus both come out of retrograde on the same day! This will occur on Thursday, opening the way to sign the documents, close the deal, book the tickets, etc. from that day through December 9 when Mercury goes retrograde. If you’re doing the holiday shopping thing either by land or online, now is the time to do it (from Thursday on).

We begin this week with communicative Mercury and fiery Mars marching along energetically in friendly, risk-taking Sagittarius, so this gives us that little push to go ahead and just do it, whatever it is.

Lastly but not leastly, the Full Moon this weekend will be in security-seeking, solid Taurus. This will raise the sensuality level and any social activities this weekend will be extra special.

Everyone take advantage of this week, because it’s a wide open window that we haven’t seen very often in the past few years. The results of major actions taken between this Thursday and December 9th will hold so much more potential, far beyond what we expect. Let’s undertake it joyfully and with that sense of anticipation that smoothes off the jaded edges.

Aries (March 21- April 19): This week is set up to be one of your best in the entire year! Just in the nick of time, too, huh? Mars and Mercury are both set up to manifest good things for you in your sector of Expansion; you may also be planning a trip for next year now, and if that’s what you’re doing, make this week the one for making critical contacts and connections. The Full Moon at the end of the week falls in your sector of finances, bringing you that much needed boost, and if that isn’t enough to make you feel good, the Sun and Jupiter are singing in a way that just makes you want to dance!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): If you have a pending contract to sign or something important, make it happen on Thursday if you can, because that is the day marked for you to get the most out of it all! Why? Because your Ruler Venus comes out of retrograde and anything that’s stalled out will move on through, just when you’ve gotten down to your last nerve and are ready to gore someone with your horns! You’ll be carried along by the Sun and Jupiter washing you with the balm of their mutual harmony and by golly, you’ll be ready to party this weekend! Oh, and let’s not forget the Full Moon on the weekend, in your sign!

Gemini (May 21- June 20): Jupiter and Venus both come out of retrograde with week, and Jupiter is your friend! This is especially good for you Twins born around mid-June because you will feel the relief immediately, beginning Thursday. As it usually goes with planets coming out of retrograde, there may be one last gnarly thing early in the week, but you’ll be able to deal with it swiftly thanks to these two. The Full Moon at the weekend brings you the illumination you need to finally finish something that’s taken an awfully long time, enabling you to sprint for the finish line.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Moonchild, Stern Saturn in your sector of Home has not been very nice to you. Take heart though, because this is your week to get ahead (or get even)! Both Venus and Jupiter come out of retrograde on Thursday, giving you the fresh wind in your sails to take it over the top and turn things to your advantage. This week may very well be one of the best of the year for you, so dry up those tears, pull in the explosive reactions and aim your gaze at the horizon where your fortune will rise. The weekend’s Full Moon in your sector of goals/friendships trigger a sudden surge in good stuff. It’s your week! Take it!

Leo (July 23 – August 22): Now listen. Two planets are coming out of retrograde this week, on the same day! Do I have your noble attention? This is the time (from Thursday until Dec. 9) to get the stuff ordered you need, such as appliances, buying a car, etc. that you’ve been waiting for. The best deals will come your way as if by magic due to your Ruler the Sun in a gorgeous dance with lucky Jupiter. You will notice it, mark my words! This weekend’s Full Moon in your sector of career will bring good news on the moneymaking front too. You should be one happy lion now!

Virgo (August 23 – September 21): Saturn in your sector of money has forced you into redefining playing, but guess what! You can come out from under your rock now because this week is a real turn of fortune for you (if you are already fortunate, you will get even more so)! First of all, both Venus and Jupiter come out of retrograde on the same day (Thursday), so by the weekend you’re going to feel immediate relief and you’ll want to celebrate something! The other lovely planetary news is the Sun in your sector of communicating holding lucky Jupiter’s hand as he turns into direct motion…my, oh my!!!!!!! Run, don’t walk! The icing on the cake is the Full Moon this weekend, solidifying a plan and putting it right under your feet in the coming days. Go out and grin!!!!!!!!!!

Libra (September 22 – October 23): Saturn in your sign has sure been shoring up your discipline in areas you didn’t even know existed, but this week you get a lucky break because communicative Mercury and energetic Mars join hands in your sector of thinking/communicating; you’ll actually be able to call it for what it is and not get told off for it, wow! The other exciting news of the week is lucky Jupiter and your Ruler Venus coming out of retrograde on the same day (Thursday). You are one who will feel immediate relief. Top it off with the lovely Full Moon in your sector of intimacy and you have it on a silver platter. Have or go to a party this weekend, for sure!

Scorpio (October 24- November 22): Not a moment too soon, Venus and Jupiter both go direct on the same day this week! Thursday is the X that marks the spot for you, and to further boost the revelry, the Sun in your sign holds Jupiter’s hand, bringing you into the warm waters of emotional comfort. The weekend’s Full Moon falls in your sector of relationship so plan something special with your darling or if you’re single and searching, know your luck will turn for the better in the next couple of weeks!

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 20): Okay Archer, you’ve nocked an arrow and you’re ready to let it fly! Your target will come into focus from Thursday through December 9, and this will be one of the best weeks of the entire year for you! Your Ruler Jupiter and esteem-building Venus both come out of retrograde on the same day (Thursday) and you Archers born within a few days either way of December 15th will feel it immediately. Mercury and Mars are marching along in your sign as well, boosting your spirits and urging you to communicate encouragement (even to yourself), and this weekend’s Full Moon will illuminate and crystallize a health matter for you; start your engine!

Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): Even you will be bit by the Fun Bug now, Cappie. Great good things are happening in the Heavens and you’re going to be smiling at nothing because you’ll feel so good! On Thursday, lucky Jupiter and powerful Venus both come out of retrograde and you’ll feel the cascading effect of flow from then on. Talkative Mercury and energetic Mars in your sector of Endings bring a project to a close with all parties shaking hands amicably and the whipped cream in the hot chocolate shows up this weekend with the Full Moon illuminating your sector of Expansion. Looks like you’re off to the tropics soon!

Aquarius (January 21 – February 20): With steps of merriment and a mysterious gleam in your eye, you’ll walk through this week with bells on your toes! First off is communicative Mercury holding hands with energetic Mars in your sector of goals/friends. Looks like you’re dancing already with the best people in your life! Thursday sees lucky Jupiter and esteem-building Venus coming out of retrograde, and immediate relief will be felt by all and sundry. More sparkles of magic come because the Sun in your sector of Career gives Jupiter a leg up as he comes out of retrograde and your personal ball gets hit out of the park. Now grab that wand of yours and paint the sky!

Pisces (February 21 – March 20): A big shout out to my Piscean friend David Bentley who got hit by a car in Friday Harbor and literally “just rolled with it!” That’s Jupiter in your sign at work, and guess what…on Thursday, Jupiter and Venus both come out of retrograde! Now things will radically turn in your favor even more so and with Mercury and Mars side by side in your sector of Career, it looks like you have an even better chance of making those long-distance connections I told you about last week. But wait, there’s more! The Sun in your sector of Expansion gives Jupiter a hand up now, and with this weekend’s Full Moon in your sector of communicating, it’s likely you’ll seal a deal. Wow. Love it all! No cars in the crosswalks anymore!
