Different aspects of our astrology charts show us our talents.

All Signs:

Different aspects of our astrology charts show us our talents. Great singers have Taurus elements. (Taurus rules the voice and throat). Chefs have a strong Moon or Cancer aspects. Great lawyers have Libra because Libra rules the law. And this week, Venus and Saturn dance together, which is a sure sign of artists, musicians, architects and mathematicians. (This means babies born this week will have this Venus/Saturn combo in their charts.) It is about form and function. This combo helps everyone see how space, timing and order can balance with aesthetics. (I have this aspect in my chart, which is why I LOVED designing and building my own home. Admittedly, I forgot to put the roof on, but hey, why be a stickler for details?)


Aries March 21-April 19

At the beginning of the week, you might feel some tension building up within you because of the approaching Full Moon energy, which will peak Wednesday/Thursday. This energy could manifest as tension with children, friends and lovers. It could also precipitate conflicts with sports, and vacation plans might trigger arguments. Fortunately, a lovely Venus/Saturn dance will help you to write, draw and create beautiful things. (Yay me!) Not only will you create beautiful things with your hands (including designs), your speech and communications will be tasteful, gracious and filled with forethought and planning. (Oh my.)


Taurus April 20-May 20

Except for the energy that builds up Monday and Tuesday before Wednesday’s Full Moon, this can be a lovely week for you. Nevertheless, be careful dealing with parents and authority figures (bosses and the police) at the beginning of the week because you could blow it. Just suck it up. Defer to others with respect and a genuine acknowledgment of their authority. (You can rebel later.) The bottom line is to make your own life easier! Meanwhile, in another part of the forest, you can make lovely purchases that please you, especially antiques. You can also start to make long-range practical plans about how to boost your income. Ka-ching!


Gemini May 21-June 20

Tension builds up each month before the Full Moon, and each month, the Full Moon takes place in a different sign, so it has a different energy. The Full Moon on Wednesday is in Aquarius, which means that Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are slightly accident-prone times for you. Therefore, slow down and think before you speak or do anything. Be scrupulous about your behaviour. (The origin of the word “scruples” is “to hesitate.”) The overall tone of this week, however, is quite different. You’re in touch with your creative talents! And you’re particularly in touch with your ability to show others affection and love in a beautiful way. (Gosh.)


Cancer June 21-July 22

You are always sensitive to the Full Moon because the Moon is the ruler of Cancer. Therefore, at the beginning of this week, avoid financial disputes with others or arguments about shared possessions or something you might own. You might even have disagreements about your salary or something related to your job. Bummer. Don’t get too carried away because Full Moon energy is crazy. (Too emotional.) Far better to discuss these matters next week. Fortunately, you have the ability to make excellent plans secretly or behind the scenes. These plans could secure your home base. However, other Cancers are carrying on secret love affairs or flirtatious dalliances with someone of an age difference. (It’s never too late to be naughty.)


Leo July 23-Aug 22

Relations with partners and close friends might be strained this week because the Full Moon on Wednesday is directly opposite your sign. (It’s the only one all year.) You will feel this certainly by Tuesday and Wednesday. Solution? Be gracious, tolerant and patient with others. And remember that a closed mouth gathers no feet. (Pulling my foot out of my mouth is the only yoga I do.) All group discussions will go especially well because your ability to work with others and plan dazzling events, beautiful situations or tasteful ceremonies is tops now. Whatever you do will be done with grace and elegance. (Natch.)


Virgo Aug 23-Sept 22

So much is going on behind the scenes right now that even your health feels like it’s being tested. You will especially feel this Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Therefore, do anything you can to pamper yourself. Have a massage or a long soak in the tub. Be good to yourself because this stress could affect your job as well. Fortunately, the Venus/Saturn dance (see All Signs above) makes you look unusually dignified, gracious and capable to others, especially bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. They see you as someone who is an excellent role model because your quiet grace and ability to deal with others, especially people in authority, is elegant. You are admired by others.


Libra Sept 23-Oct 22

The Full Moon midweek, which creates tension on Tuesday and Wednesday, is challenging for you when it comes to dealing with friends, groups and perhaps even children. Disputes about how to do something or move forward with collective plans might arise. Others might disagree with your goals. (If you read the book Steve Jobs, you won’t care!) Meanwhile, you couldn’t pick a better time to make long-range travel plans. These plans will please you and they will be surprisingly practical and beneficial for you. This is also a good week to make plans about future publishing, higher education, the media, medicine and the law. It will please you to see how everything is all coming together in a very fitting way. (“Size 16? Surely this is mismarked. I never have been and never will be a size 16!” harrumphed the Queen of Denial.)


Scorpio Oct 23-Nov 21

I’m not going to sugarcoat it. The energy building up to the Full Moon on Wednesday will be a bit tough. On Tuesday and Wednesday especially, you might feel at odds with parents, teachers, bosses and authority figures as well as family members. Oy vey. Just tough it out and cope as best you can. Be reasonable. Be co-operative. You can be part of the solution or part of the problem – your choice. The good news is that discussions with others, especially partners or anyone you share wealth with, can be productive and beneficial for a long time in the future. Romance with someone of an age difference might also take place now. If so, it will be very sweet, gentle and maybe old-fashioned.


Sagittarius Nov 22-Dec 21

Do be extra careful this week because the energy building up to Wednesday’s Full Moon can create an accident-prone time for your sign. Naturally, accidents don’t have to happen. In fact, they generally happen because you are distracted or hasty or your mind is angry or disturbed — classic textbook stuff. Therefore, slow down and take it easy. Be extra mindful of everything you say and do. Obviously, this is the week to avoid controversial subjects like politics and religion. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, relations with partners and close friends are unusually smooth, supportive and lovely this week. A casual relationship could become more committed. This good news applies to intimate relationships as well as professional partnerships.

Capricorn Dec 22-Jan 19

You are someone who values their good reputation. You also value status and prestige in the world. Nevertheless, you know that a rich person is not necessarily one who has the most, but one who needs the least. (You’re realistic and practical.) Disagreements about shared property, debt, taxes and anything you own jointly with others might arise at the beginning of the week because the Full Moon energy will stir this up. Even though these subjects are staring you in the face, this is actually a poor time to try to settle them. By contrast, this is a very good week at work. People are supportive and co-operative. (In fact, a work-related romance might begin for some of you.) Your health feels good as well.


Aquarius Jan 20-Feb 18

The only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place this week. Without question, this can make you more emotional than usual, which in turn can create problems or tension with spouses, partners and close friends. It’s just what it is. (You can run but you can’t hide.) Knowing this, do your best to be accommodating and tolerant. Don’t add fuel to the flames. Instead, focus on fun-loving alternatives because this week romance is sweetly charming and sort of classic in an old-fashioned way. In fact, romance with someone of an age difference might arise. This is good time to make long-range plans for future vacations. You’re feeling good about life.


Pisces Feb 19-March 20

The Full Moon this week could create problems at work or even health-related problems for you. (I’m simply pointing out where the stress factor is for your sign.) Naturally, this doesn’t have to happen. Furthermore, whatever does happen will greatly diminish by Thursday. The good news is this is a lovely week to entertain at home and to enjoy relations with family members, especially older relatives. It’s also an excellent time to explore real-estate deals or redecorate where you live. Any changes you make now will probably last for a long time in the future and give you a greater sense of security and happiness about where you live.
