ARIES (Mar. 20 - Apr. 20) — Still time to jump on the romance vibe, be dramatic and heartfelt and give yourself permission to be your bold self! It's also a great week to ask for that raise or promote yourself in some way. Feelings run high and lovely things are even lovelier. Take the time to enjoy all that is beautiful around you.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 21) — Very dynamic energy this week as your ruler Venus connects with Mars. Energies align in such a way making almost anything possible. Trust yourself and where you want to go. Those ideas you have for expansion or moving into something bigger are right on target, so get going and begin building in a practical way.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 22) — It may take all your energy to not exaggerate the truth this week, yet it is energy well invested. The gift of gab is yours, you just need to make sure you stay connected to the truth and don't go off on a well-imagined tangent. Say what you need to say; just try to do it in a slow and steady fashion with little embellishment — stick to the facts!
CANCER (June 22 - July 23) — This week may start a little slow and uninspired, yet it finishes with some big and dynamic energy. Trust your slow periods for they will be followed by high energy, so conserve while you can. Pace yourself is probably the best advice, for you want to guard against biting off more than you can chew going into next week.
LEO (July 23 - Aug. 23) — Relationship matters are all up to you. Anything that you consider a matter of the heart is in your hands, whether to make things different or bring energies together. Be bold, yet steady. Stand firm in your conviction and then move forward. Don't allow another's off-handed comment to knock the wind out of your sails.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23) — You along with Gemini need to keep the facts straight. You may vacillate between moments of deep self-assurance and other moments of pure insecurity. What can you do? Weird stuff happens. The best thing is to make sure you have all the facts and are speaking the truth, for with the truth on your side all things will fall into place.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23) — Ah, lovely time to be you and enjoy this fall weather and beauty. Take the time to enjoy your surroundings and the people you share this beautiful life with. You have great gifts in wooing people to your side of things this week, so use the energy well and share it with others if you have the chance. Love is in the air and you may well be the center of attention.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 22) — High productivity this week, so jump on it and keep on getting things done. Wow is all I can say! It is almost like you've been waiting for just this moment to get going on long awaited projects and everything comes together to make this the time to get it all done. This energy does linger for a little while, so enjoy it and stick to the plan, however loose the plan may be.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) — Things may seem a little serious this week, yet it has been building for a while so you may just want to surrender to it. Your usual optimistic and dynamic self may be in a bit of a low period and it is just one of those things. Know it is not permanent and that the energy will change and renewal is just around the corner. It's okay to be serious now and again, so cut yourself some slack.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 - Jan. 20) — Yes, the energy is big and you may be feeling the pressure to accomplish something, and yes you may have no clue what it is you are supposed to accomplish. This is a very weird energy time where you are kind of walking in a fog, and yet feeling this pull of destiny or something akin to it. It is just what is happening, so you can only keep moving and trust where you are being led.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 19) — This week you may find yourself feeling more disconnected than usual from people and situations. In many ways you are disconnected and for right now it's okay. Later in the week you will find yourself more engaged, yet for right now and through the weekend it is more of a time where you are complete unto yourself. Look within for any answers or encouragement.
PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20) — I know you would prefer a world where everyone gets along and we all have compassion and love for one another, yet here you are in this world of fear and pain and everything else. There is love and compassion mixed in with all the other stuff so you will need to focus on those things so as to not get overwhelmed by the other less pleasant stuff. Your focus does matter most, so keep yourself focused on the goodwill around you and hold thoughts that are full of goodwill as well. It's your best choice right now.
