Aries: Mar. 20 - Apr. 19
The issue that has preoccupied your thoughts while Mercury was retrograde could improve considerably once the Messenger has turns direct. Information you've been waiting for should appear in a corrected (probably not the final) version to lift your spirits. And once loving Venus is in your Libra house of partners, there'll be more reasons to smile. Enjoy her visit; until September 11, the goddess will be bestowing bountiful blessings and moments of sheer pleasure and joy, especially over the Labor Day weekend.
Taurus: Apr. 20 - May 20
Too many impromptu get-togethers, too many social obligations can put even the gentlest of Bulls on edge. Since your Venus ruler will be leaving earth-sign friendly Virgo for airy Libra you may get caught up in a whirlwind of activity. Weigh the invitations carefully; some can be advantageous to your career, some can be both disappointing and exhausting. High hopes have a good chance of panning out if you schedule a grand entrance for the full moon. If there's actual work to do or a charity event to attend, so much the better.
Gemini: May 21 - Jun. 20
Nothing spells "relief" like your Mercury ruler getting back to where it once belonged. A financial matter that may have gone south during retrograde slowly gains momentum after Mercury moves forward again. It may take until the end of August before you see genuine progress, but rest assured it is coming. More good news: Affectionate Venus entering lovable Libra makes it easier, more pleasant as well, to hang out at home and get out and play. Romantic and recreational matters benefit from the supportive trine between these air signs.
Cancer: Jun. 21 - Jul. 22
Faith may be able to move mountains, but there's a good chance demonstrating yours will cost more than you figured it would. Maybe you won't mind and you'll adjust fairly easily to a revised set of circumstances, maybe you'll squirm like a worm on a hook. The full moon on the 19th should reveal and resolve the matter, but if you don't have the patience to wait it out, if your crabby Crab persona demands answers ASAP, then you could be SOL. Focus instead on the data Mercury retrieves from its trip through retrograde.
Leo: Jul. 23 - Aug. 22
If it seems that nothing much has been happening and that (except for your not-quite-as-bright-and-beautiful-as-it-could-have-been birthday) August has been a bust, just wait for Mercury to turn direct in your sign. Although the Messenger may move slowly at first, it'll pick up speed and put you back in touch with people and situations that'll make you feel hopeful again. Something quite wonderful, borderline miraculous could occur while optimistic Jupiter favors imaginative Neptune in your Aquarius marriage house.
Virgo: Aug. 23 - Sep. 22
A certain amount of contention is to be expected, particularly among colleagues with a mutual financial interest. Try to keep your cool until your Mercury ruler delivers the revised information you're all banking on. Unfortunately the charm and diplomacy Venus bestowed while she was in Virgo ends Tuesday when the goddess moves on to Libra. On the other hand, as Venus transits your money house, she'll steer you towards good-looking goods and profitable purchases. Buying and selling should bring considerable pleasure.
Libra: Sep. 23 - Oct. 22
A romance could flourish nicely and so will you when your Venus ruler is in Libra, back home where she belongs. Although the goddess can increase your allure and social graces, it is expansive Jupiter in your sign that'll heighten your chance of experiencing a story-book kind of love. Since Jupiter lends considerable support to idealistic Neptune, a person or project that took center-stage in March, when they last formed a favorable trine, reclaims its prominent position. The benefits are mutual, but not long-lived. Carpe diem.
Scorpio: Oct. 23 - Nov. 21
After a surprisingly satisfying weekend, it should be obvious that the efforts you've made to manage your finances are finally paying off. The difficulties you faced in June have been successfully overcome, but only for the time being. Remember that while your Pluto co-ruler is embedded in your Sagittarius house of money earned, seasonal fluctuations will be the rule, not the exception. Meanwhile Mars, your co-ruling planet, nestled in your Taurus marriage house, is honing your involvement with a significant other.
Sagittarius: Nov. 22 - Dec. 21
The bitch is moving on. Venal Venus in your career midheaven leaves perfectionist Virgo for the lighter, looser heights of airy Libra. Expect more laughs and better luck over the next four weeks, particularly when dealing with colleagues and club members. But for the moment, it's your power of persuasion, your knack for making something out of nothing that is being recognized by the creative Leo sun. That talent may help you attain your fondest wish midweek when your magnanimous Jupiter ruler and faith-based Neptune trine.
Capricorn: Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 1
