Aries (March 21-April 19)
This month is a preview of coming attractions because your year ahead is the best time in over a decade to improve your job; and this month your focus on your job becomes strong. This same influence applies to your health. In other words, you will improve your health in the coming year, and this month, you will start some kind of new regime, be it diet or exercise, to boost your health. However, Venus and Mars still put you in party mode. No matter what your age – you don’ t look a day over adorable.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Things are heating up for you because so many opportunities to have a good time are on your horizon. You might meet someone new. (Hopefully, you’re not humming Tinder is the Night.) Existing partnerships will become romantic and fun-loving. In fact, every aspect of your life will become more fun loving, including sports events and playful times with kids. The month ahead is perfect for vacations, social soirées, long lunches, musical performances, the arts and just hanging out with your pals.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This month, your focus is on home, family and your private life. All of you will become more focused on the enjoyment of family and how you spend your private time. Some will improve your home by expanding it or move into bigger digs. Others will contemplate renovations and redecorating projects. Alternatively, you might just cocoon and escape from the busy social swirl around you. This is understandable because both Venus and Mars continue to attract new faces, new places and exciting new situations into your world.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This month the daily pace of your days will accelerate. Short trips, errands, increased reading and writing plus more involvement with siblings, relatives and neighbours are just some of the reasons your schedule will be jam-packed in the month ahead. Fortunately, with Jupiter nearby, your optimism is high. You’re excited to be doing all these things. You’re not complaining. In part, this could be because your finances are starting to improve. Yes, when the gears start to grind, money is a wonderful lubricant.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This is a lovely time because both Venus and Mars are in Leo. In fact, fair Venus will stay in your sign until October, attracting social occasions to you, while, at the same time, making you charming and appealing to everyone. Venus can do that. Right now your focus on money, cash flow, earnings, finances, assets and possessions is stronger. This will be a thoughtful month because not only are you thinking about your wealth, at a deeper level, you will ponder your core values. What really matters? (Beyond fame, fun and friends.)
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Oh joy! Both the Sun and Jupiter are in Virgo. It doesn’t get better than this. Well, I lied. There is always room for ‘better’, isn’t there? That’s what makes contentment so elusive. It’s also why contentment has an aspect of intelligence. But enough of profundity. You’re pumped because this is your turn to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. With the Sun in your sign, you attract important people and favourable circumstances to you. This is the one time where it is just fine to put yourself first.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Because your birthday is just one month away, this month is the best time to plan what you want your new year to be all about. For starters, how do you want it to be different from this last year? Think about this because if you define some goals, you will find that they will be more easily achieved simply because you have named them to yourself. They already have that much ‘reality.’ Venus and Mars will continue to push you into social situations, as well as competitive, physical sports. Enjoy schmoozing!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You’re entering a popular year, and this month will kick it off beautifully. That’s why you feel a stronger need to join clubs, groups and associations. You will also become more involved with your friends, as well as make new friends. In addition, your interactions with others will not just be fun, social escapes; these interactions will actually benefit you – physically, financially, practically and psychologically. This is the perfect month to define your future goals. (‘I want a pony and I want to be a ballerina.’)
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
This month, the Sun is at the top of your chart, which is the only time all year this happens. Because it throws a flattering light on you, bosses, parents and VIPs are impressed with you. Now is the time to ask for a promotion or the endorsement of an idea or the approval for something you want to do. Things will unfold as you want them to because Jupiter at the top of your chart is triggering a year-long boost to your professional reputation. Nevertheless, Venus and Mars urge you to travel for pleasure. Oh dear, what a drag. More fun and travel. Suck it up.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
This month brings travel, new ideas and discussions about politics, religion, philosophy, racial issues, medicine and the law. Many will also discover opportunities opening up in publishing and the media. Basically, it’s time for you to expand your world and this month is your introduction into this. Naturally, some of you will expand it by traveling; but you can also enhance your life through training and more education. This month in particular, is a good time to sign up for a course.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You’re entering an intense month. Everything has a more black-and-white quality, a life-or-death overtone. Along with it will be a strong desire on your part to become a better person – to really pull your act together so you can take it on the road. This will trigger some soul-searching. If you’re in the midst of disputes about inheritances or shared property, you will defend your own best interests. The good news is this same intensity amps your sex life. Did I say life? I should be more specific. Your sex drive – the rest is up to you.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
The Sun is opposite your sign now. Since the Sun is your source of energy and it is now as far away from you as it gets all year, you will need more sleep. Go to bed. This polarized position of the Sun also means that you will be focused on friendships and partnerships more than usual. Fortunately, it will give you a chance to learn more about yourself through your intimate one-to-one relationships. This is not the month to go it alone. Be involved with others. It’s also a good time to consult experts – counselors, doctors or an astrologer.
