On Thursday, the planets bring good news and bad news. The main thing is not to blow your cool

  • Sep. 14, 2012 7:00 a.m.

All Signs: This week the Sun moves into Libra bringing a shift of focus for everyone. On Thursday, the planets bring good news and bad news. The main thing is not to blow your cool that afternoon if others make you angry. There is no upside to this. Anger worsens every situation and makes everyone miserable. Since you know you’re coming into this vulnerable time, which starts around 3 p.m. on the West Coast and finishes around 8 p.m. on the East Coast, then “…step aside. A lot of men didn’t and a lot of men died.” After all, “A soft answer turneth away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger.”


Aries March 21-April 19

For the next month, the Sun will be directly opposite your sign. (This is the only time all year this occurs.) Since the Sun is your source of energy, you’re going to need to get more sleep because the Sun will be as far away from you as it gets all year. Factoid. Respect your need for more sleep because when Aries doesn’t get enough sleep, Aries gets cranky! Naturally, this placement of the Sun makes you focus on friendships and partnerships more than usual. Although Thursday is a difficult day for partnerships and dealing with others, ironically, by nightfall, romance looks cozy and everyone is happy. (Could be makeup sex.) The next few weeks will teach you more about yourself and how you relate to others.


Taurus April 20-May 20

Suddenly, it seems like you’re gung-ho to get better organized. Basically, you want your life to run more smoothly. This is why you will do whatever you can to make things run more efficiently at home and at work. By all means act on your impulse to buy shelving, file folders, labels, batteries, flashlights, cleaning equipment, paint – who knows? – so that you can use these items to make your life smooth and productive. Since you’re on such a self-improvement kick, you will likewise be keen to introduce dietary changes and start new exercise regimes. You’ll also buy something beautiful for where you live. “My life is almost perfect!”


Gemini May 21-June 20

Lucky you! You are entering what could be the most fun-filled six weeks of the year for your sign. Basically, your focus is simple: You want to have fun. It’s not selfish, it simply means you want to do your own thing and have a good time. Naturally, you’ll enjoy sports events, the theatre, the arts, movies, parties, and all kinds of amusements. This next month is also a wonderful time to participate in playful times with kids. Dabble in arts and crafts because you will find it rewarding and gratifying to express your creativity. Romance and love affairs will shine now. Work quickly to meet your daily obligations so that you have more time to play. (No guilt!)

Cancer June 21-July 22

You’ll enjoy the next six weeks because in many ways you’re a nester. You need to have a place where you can have long baths and curl up in a fetal position and have a warm feeling in your tummy. (“It’s hard out there without your towel.”) Therefore, it will please you now to enjoy a stretch of time where your focus is primarily on home, family and personal matters. You will probably tackle some home repairs. Similarly, family discussions will be significant, especially with parents. You’ll also want to spend time alone doing a little navel-gazing because lots of childhood memories will come up. (Keep an eye open for ways to boost your income Thursday and Friday this week.)


Leo July 23-Aug 22

The tempo of your days will accelerate in the next six weeks due to a jam-packed schedule of short trips and increased reading and writing. On top of this, you’ll be running around doing errands and talking to everyone. Just accept this and go with the flow. This is not the time to stay at home. Instead, get out and hustle thy buns. With Venus in your sign, you’re attractive and socially charming, which means the month ahead is an excellent time to shop for wardrobe goodies. (The best time to buy clothes is when you feel good about yourself and you like what you see in the mirror.) However, be patient at home because domestic tension is the only dark cloud on your horizon.


Virgo Aug 23-Sept 22

Ka-ching! For various reasons, according to the details of your own life, you’re going to be much more focused on earnings and cash flow in the next six weeks. Some of you will push for a raise while other will be looking for a new job. You might also be keenly focused on budgets and figuring out how to best juggle your money to keep the wolf away from the door. Some will contemplate a major purchase. However, money is an external value. This focus on cash flow tells me you’re really focused on your basic values in general. This means this is perhaps the best time of the year to ask yourself if you know what your values are. What really matters in life?


Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This week the Sun enters your sign for the first time in a year, which means you’ll be pumped with energy for the next four weeks. (This is literally your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year.) When the Sun is in your sign, you easily attract others to you, plus favourable circumstances come your way. Naturally, you should make the most of this. Look for these opportunities coming your way and jump on them. You’re working hard to earn money (and spend it). Relations with friends, especially group situations, are warm and friendly. And upsets with others on Thursday this week can be avoided if you zip your lip. Basically, you’re looking at a very fortunate month ahead!


Scorpio Oct 23-Nov 21

Your personal year is ending. That makes this next month the perfect time to look over your shoulder and ask yourself how well you’re doing at the art of living. Think about the last year. How do you want your new year to be different? If you write down some specific goals, this will increase the likelihood you’ll achieve these goals. It’s your choice. You can either go through life doing damage control and responding to whatever happens, or you can have specific goals in mind that you want to achieve. Use the next few weeks to formulate goals that relate to your job, your health, your home, your relations with family members, your personal relationships, your spiritual life and how much you get a chance to express your creativity. (What’s to lose by trying?)


Sagittarius Nov 22-Dec 21

You’re suddenly popular! The next six weeks are all about talking to friends, joining clubs and groups, schmoozing with acquaintances plus making valuable new contacts. In the bigger picture, you’re aware of your hopes and dreams and thinking a lot about how close you are to achieving them. With Jupiter directly opposite your sign this is a time of culmination for you. You feel a sense of achievement. Travel for pleasure is totally possible. In fact, romance with someone from another culture or a different country could become a thrill. (Easiest way to learn a new language.) Enjoy this excitement ahead!


Capricorn Dec 22-Jan 19

YDuring the next six weeks, the Sun will slowly cross the top of your chart acting like a spotlight on you. This is why others, especially parents, teachers and VIPs, notice you more. Fortunately, this lighting is flattering so everyone thinks you’re hot. (Obviously, this is an opportunity for you.) Demand the advantage! Ask for a promotion or raise (or anything you want). Bosses will ask you to take on increased responsibilities. (Not surprising because this is the year you can improve your job.) Meanwhile sex will be sweet and affectionate; plus gifts, goodies and favours will come your way. (Not too shabby.)


Aquarius Jan 20-Feb 18

You’ve got the wanderlust and travel totally appeals to you in the next six weeks. Bottom line: You want to do something different! You want to expand your horizons. You’re hungry for fresh ideas, new knowledge and an opportunity to meet fascinating people. Study or sign up for a course. Naturally being in a different environment will satisfy your desire for stimulation. Yes, you’re restless but it’s a positive thing. Meanwhile, fair Venus opposite your sign guarantees warm relationships with others. Avoid controversial subjects on Thursday. (Do not trifle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.)


Pisces Feb 19-March 20

You’re sensitive and emotional. (This doesn’t mean you’re wishy-washy. Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs were both Pisces.) But you do react emotionally to events around you and, in the next six weeks, many of you will be much more intense than usual. Your world will feel very black and white/right or wrong/on or off. No middle ground. You might do some soul-searching, and many of you will meet someone who triggers this psychological self-inquiry. Or someone might challenge your values? One thing is certain: Sex will be passionate and memorable! (Mae West said, “Good sex is like bridge. If you don’t have a good partner you’d better have a good hand.”)
