All Signs: “Spring is sprung, the grass is riz, I wonder where da boidies is? Ah dere’s a boidie on the wing! Now ain’t dat a funny ting? I always tort the wing was on the boid.” This time of year I always recall that verse from someone’s Brooklyn childhood (not mine, which was the Canadian prairies). This week, we have the Vernal Equinox, which means we have come full circle as the Sun returns to Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. (They believe the firstest with the mostest is the bestest. Natch!) Read on to see how this new Aries Sun affects your sign. But considering boidies or birds — I don’t know how much you can trust those age-old rules of thumb. I mean, look at the big deal we have made about the merits of being the “early bird.” What about the early worm? (Or should I say woim?)

 

Aries March 21-April 19

Hubba hubba! The Sun is back in your sign, which means it’s your birthday. Since the Sun is your source of energy, this is your turn to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. (We like!) Furthermore, when the Sun is in your own sign, it tends to attract people and favourable circumstances to you. Make the most of this! (Ya think?) Demand the advantage. Ask for what you want. Meanwhile, continue to work hard. Many of you are improving your health through changes in diet or exercise. Perhaps we’ll be looking at the new you by the end of this year? This year also promises money-making opportunities.

 

Taurus April 20-May 20

Every year, when the Sun enters Aries, it’s your signal to work behind the scenes and ponder profundity. In fact, because your birthday is just one month away, this is the ideal time for you to plan or strategize what you want your new year (birthday to birthday) to be all about. Are you pleased with last year? How do you want things to be different? With Jupiter in your sign for the next several months, you can expect many favourable conditions and pleasant surprises to please you. Then later this year and into next year, you will boost your income! Meanwhile, Mars continues to urge you to flirt, take vacations plus enjoy sports and playful activities with children. (Not too shabby!)

 

Gemini May 21-June 20

You will so enjoy the next six weeks because by nature, you’re curious and social. You like to be out there in the thick of it. You like to know what’s going on and you love the gossip! You will love this very popular month ahead. Get out and schmooze. Accept all invitations. Join groups, gatherings, clubs and associations. You’ll find it particularly beneficial to discuss and share your hopes and dreams for the future with others because their feedback will help you. (Almost guaranteed.) You might need to touch base with a good friend to talk about the insanity or conflict and chaos that is going on at home. (Hey – there might be two of you, but you can only stand so much!)

 

Cancer June 21-July 22

The Sun is now at high noon in your chart acting like a spotlight on you. This is why the next six weeks will bring moments where people will notice you more than usual, in particular bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police. (Ah yes, do take note this includes the police.) Fortunately, this so-called spotlight is actually great lighting for you, which is why you will be perceived as being unusually talented, capable, industrious or clever. (And you are!) This is why others will ask you to take on increased responsibilities. Just say yes. You can do the job. Furthermore, your ability to be assertive (surely you have noticed) will no doubt serve you well. (“Where do I sign?”)

 

Leo July 23-Aug 22

As the Sun changes to Aries this week, your desire to travel and explore more of the world will increase. In fact, you want to grab more of life! This is why any kind of exploration will please you, be it physical, i.e. through travel or exploring your own city, or mental, i.e. travelling through books and film and learning more about the world. This is a great time to study and read. It’s also a good time to explore opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. (You also enjoy meeting people from different backgrounds and other countries.) Meanwhile, you’re spending money like it’s going out of style. You might want to try to curb this (yeah yeah, why even mention it?)

 

Virgo Aug 23-Sept 22

Suddenly, you’re intense about practically everything. And it looks like you’re going to stay in this focused mode for the next six weeks. (Get ready, world.) Naturally, this gives you a greater drive for self-improvement and also for improving your surroundings and especially dealing with shared property, other people’s resources and anything you own jointly with someone. You want to clear up the mess! However, this same energy will also make you sexually passionate. (Woo-woo!) Either way, you’re turned on. And with fiery Mars still in your sign until the summer, you are all systems go! (“Houston, we’re ready for take-off.”)

Libra Sept 23-Oct 22

The Sun is our source of energy, and for the next month the Sun will be as far away from your sign (astrologically speaking) as it gets all year, which means you are going to need more rest. Many of you will have already noticed that you are sleeping more. (Your sign is funny when it comes to sleep. Your sleep patterns are all over the map.) Just remember to get more rest. You might feel easily confrontational with partners, and close friends as well. Instead of being annoyed with them, be the change that you want to see in them. If you want them to be loving and flirtatious, be loving and flirtatious! (Get it?) Got it. (Good.)

 

Scorpio Oct 3-Nov 21

Aren’t we industrious? This Aries Sun makes you want to work! Well, you might as well make the most of this urge because it comes only once a year. Act on this by giving yourself the right tools to do a bang-up job. Buy cleaning equipment, paint, file folders, hangers, shelving, closet organizers or whatever you need to de-clutter where you live and work. Give yourself a feeling that you’re more in control of your life and on top of your scene. (You’ll love yourself for this later.) By the way, many of you want to maximize your health as well. Focus on a healthier diet and doing more exercise. (You’ll love yourself later for this as well!)

 

Sagittarius Nov 22-Dec 21

Aren’t we industrious? This Aries Sun makes you want to work! Well, you might as well make the most of this urge because it comes only once a year. Act on this by giving yourself the right tools to do a bang-up job. Buy cleaning equipment, paint, file folders, hangers, shelving, closet organizers or whatever you need to de-clutter where you live and work. Give yourself a feeling that you’re more in control of your life and on top of your scene. (You’ll love yourself for this later.) By the way, many of you want to maximize your health as well. Focus on a healthier diet and doing more exercise. (You’ll love yourself later for this as well!)

 

Capricorn Dec 22-Jan 19

Many of you are travelling for pleasure now. Enjoy yourself! Furthermore, enjoy flirtations, vacations, love affairs and romance. You’re keen to expand your world and learn more about everything around you (preferably thousands of miles away). The irony is that coupled with this desire to travel and expand your world you’re also focused on home and family in the next month. (Weird combo.) Some of you might travel with family or to see family. Others will do both: travel somewhere and then later enjoy “hiding” at home to do some serious thinking. Some will create a new home in another country or a different location. My, my.

 

Aquarius Jan 20-Feb 18

During the next six weeks, you’re busy. You’ve got things to do, people to see, places to go. Interaction with siblings and relatives will increase. So will your involvement with reading and studying. “I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date.” You’ll be doing the White Rabbit thing. (You might want to get a digital pocket watch.) You’re eager to inform others about something or enlighten people. That’s why you’ll find yourself talking and writing more than usual. Home decorating projects will also appeal. Nevertheless, disputes about shared property or inheritances lurk in the wings.

 

Pisces Feb 19-March 20

ou’re pretty revved up about money in the next six weeks. You’re focused on your cash flow as well as ideas about how to boost your earnings. Some of you will explore new job possibilities or ways to make money on the side. At a deeper level, you might wonder what your true values in life are. In other words, what really matters? (We know your car matters and the shoes you wear but, aside from that, what are the top five things that matter the most to you?) The more you are aware of what you value, the more you will live your life in a way that makes you happier. (I just made that up but I think it’s true.)
