All Signs: Fair Venus moved into Gemini last month and will stay until August (a rare event that won’t occur again for more than a century). Today the Sun moves into Gemini to be quickly followed by Mercury in Gemini and, in about three weeks, lucky Jupiter returns to Gemini for the first time since 2001. (Jupiter will stay in Gemini for a year.) So what’s with all this Gemini stuff? Sheesh! It means the whole world is having a Gemini hit, which is why everyone wants to learn and explore new things. (“Look, a bright, shiny object!”) Many will want to take short trips and talk to people from other cultures because the Gemini archetype is one of insatiable curiosity. (Geminis are interested in anything for about five minutes.) But hey, they can make love in several languages because they’re the wordsmiths of the zodiac. “Bad spellers of the world untie!”


Aries March 21-April 19

Your tempo is quickening. In the next month, you’ll be running around like you’ve got an outboard motor on your ass. The pace of your days will accelerate because you’re cramming more into each day. Short trips, busy errands, conversations with everyone plus increased reading, writing and studying are just some reasons your pace will be approaching Warp 9. But you’ll welcome the challenge! (You love being out there, flying your colours, talking to everyone.) Look for ways to make money from talking and writing because you can do this in the next four-to-six weeks. Hey, you’re more than just a pretty face.


Taurus April 20-May 20

This heavy-duty Gemini trip makes you focus on money, money, money! You’ve got money-making ideas and opportunities to earn money. Naturally, since you’re earning some coin, you’re thinking about major purchases. (You do love your treasures.) But at a subtler level, when you think about your assets and what you own, you’ll also think about your life values. What are your values? What guides you? You know you want to be happy, and you know you want financial security. (Mortgage-free land!) So what can you do that’s fun and rewarding and makes lots of money? (Will this make you happy?)


Gemini May 21-June 20

“…the envelope please. And the winner is Gemini!” All this good stuff snuck up on you, didn’t it? Well, I say grab the baton and run with it. Life is full of up-and-down cycles as well as cycles within cycles. It’s important to recognize when you’re on a roll and things are going well. In fact, things are going to be even better and better! Don’t take this for granted. Not only do you have a great summer ahead, you have a fortunate year ahead of you. Make the most of this. That saying, “Make hay while the Sun shines,” is true! Fortunately, you don’t sit around getting dusty. But why not go one step further? Hatch a plan. Set some goals. Write down what your perfect world would be about a year from now. Be specific.


Cancer June 21-July 22

Because Gemini is the sign next to yours in the zodiac, many of you have some planets in Gemini in your chart. This means all this Gemini pixie dust will sprinkle on you as well. We know you’ve been working hard to secure your home base and feel good about where you live. (You’re a nester.) But for the next four-to-six weeks, it behooves you to think about what you want your “new” year (birthday to birthday) to be. For starters, why not look back over your shoulder and size up your last year. How are you doing at the art of living? If you clearly define the goals you want to achieve in the coming year, they will more likely become a reality. After all, are you steering your life or just responding to whatever happens?


Leo July 23-Aug 22

You’re looking at a popular six weeks ahead. (Do get out of bed.) Invitations will pour in as friends, clubs and organizations make demands on your time. Expect to hang out with younger friends and creative, artistic types. (These are your people.) And while the next six weeks are the perfect time to schmooze and enjoy the company of others, they are also a good time to think about your hopes and dreams for the future. You’re a leader. It’s not your style to muddle along relying on management by crisis. Your reputation is getting a lovely boost now so what can you do to best use this advantage? (He who hesitates is miles away from the next exit.)


Virgo Aug 23-Sept 22

Of course, you’re still a force to contend with because fiery Mars has been in your sign since November (staying until July). Small wonder this Gemini hit occurs at the top of your chart. It boldly calls attention to you, especially the attention of bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police. You are definitely high viz during the next six weeks, and take note: This spotlight is flattering! Others see you as capable, which is why you’ll be asked to take on increased responsibilities. Say yes because you don’t have to be an action hero to please them. (It’s the great lighting, get it?) Romance with someone older, richer or in a position of authority might percolate. (When you don’t know what you’re doing – do it neatly.)


Libra Sept 23-Oct 22

In the next six weeks, you want to blow town. You want a change of scenery. You want to see new places, new faces and hear new ideas. In fact, you want to be stimulated by fascinating conversation with intelligent people who transport you to new levels of awareness. You want mind-blowing experiences to make your life exciting. Obviously, if you can travel, do so. If you can’t travel, then explore your own sandbox. Go someplace you’ve never been. Talk to people from different backgrounds. Do things that are out of the ordinary (nothing as extreme as jogging, but you could get a window table in an ethnic restaurant and watch runners go by. Of course, cyclists are more fun because they dress better. And the guys shave their legs.)


Scorpio Oct 23-Nov 21

Keep your pockets open because all kinds of gifts, goodies, money, as well as favours and perks will come your way in the next six weeks. Ka-ching! (Would I kid you?) People will give you things directly and many of you will benefit indirectly because your partner or someone close to you gets a windfall. The next six weeks are the perfect time to ask for a loan or a mortgage. They’re also the perfect time to decide how to share jointly-held property or an inheritance or settle insurance disputes. Sex will be very hot as well. Hey – you’re laughing!


Sagittarius Nov 22-Dec 21

You are on the other end of the teeter-totter with Gemini because Gemini and Sagittarius are 180° apart. In other words, you are two ends of the same plank. Therefore, all this wonderful stuff swirling around Gemini mirrors you! In fact, life will be so dazzling you’ll need to wear shades. Relations with everyone will be smoother, more gracious and diplomatic. A casual relationship could become more committed. It’s a great time to begin new partnerships (personal or professional). This is not the time to go it alone. Form working units with others and let people help you! Good time to consult experts as well. (“Is there a taxidermist in the house?”)


Capricorn Dec 22-Jan 19

Your urge to organize (which is always there) is going to be strong in the next six weeks. You’ll want to alphabetize your CDs and colour-code your closet. (“A home for everything and everything in its place.”) Not only will you enjoy getting better organized at work and at home, you’ll become more active at work in a hands-on way. Partly, this is because your relations with co-workers are so good right now. (Good enough for a romance to spark!) This drive for self-improvement will expand to your health as well. The high standards you set for yourself could earn you a raise or praise from others. Kudos!


Aquarius Jan 20-Feb 18

The next six weeks are going to be one of the most fun-filled times of the year for you. Grab every opportunity to enjoy a vacation (even a tiny one). Attend musical performances, summer fairs, sports events, the arts, craft fairs and anything to do with theme parks and the hospitality industry. Playful times with children will be rewarding. Romantic relationships will get a wonderful boost. Singles could start a new romance. Existing relationships will heat up in a sweet way. Look for ways to express your creativity because this will be satisfying.


Pisces Feb 19-March 20

You’re entering a domestic phase for the next six weeks. This is why you will enjoy gardening, redecorating, puttering around your digs and tweaking things. You will definitely enjoy entertaining at home, which is also why you’re keen to tackle home repairs. This impulse to improve your living space extends even into your family, which is why family relationships will become a stronger focus and also more rewarding and affectionate. For those of you who are exploring real-estate deals, this will be a busy time. Profitable opportunities are possible so keep your eyes open.
