|General Forecast |
Its a fairly chaotic week, what with the Gemini sun aggravating unpredictable Uranus on Saturday, before it lends its solar power on Monday to the favorable trine between macho Mars and paternal Saturn. If that doesnt put you in the mood for Fathers Day and all things masculine, nothing will. Wednesdays adoration of ephemeral Neptune and the glorious visions it produces sets the stage for the airy Gemini new moon on Thursday. Take a deep breath and hope for the best. Mercury in Cancer turns retrograde on the 15th, but the little guy can cause the usual hassles a few days before and after its target date.
Aries: Mar. 20 - Apr. 19
Heres another promising forecast, perhaps with better odds of success than the one based on prosperous Jupiters optimistic vision. This week Rams are urged to follow the respectable, realistic advice Saturn offers as it trines your impetuous Mars ruler. Because Saturns wealth of experience is being filtered through Leo, you should get to share in the Lions fondness for luxury. Now, while Mars is still in Aries, dont pass up any opportunity that incorporates both your engaging personality and remarkable chutzpah.
Taurus: Apr. 20 - May 20
Even it makes you feel uncomfortable, when the sun in your Gemini house of assets, such as talent, favors imaginative Neptune in your career midheaven, youre likely to be inspired. How this positive connection between money and name recognition will pay off is anybodys guess. While the sun illuminates, Neptune tends to confound. Mercury turning retrograde in early Cancer (June 15-July 9) could mess with communication and transportation matters for Bulls born in April, finances for those born in May.
Gemini: May 21 - Jun. 20
The best birthday present you receive this year might be more of a shock than seeing a bunch of familiar faces yelling, Surprise! A challenging assignment, a higher calling or a chance to explore a place youve longed to visit? If, none of the above, you could still be thrown for a loop, in a good way, when the Gemini sun contacts inventive Uranus and artistic Neptune. Despite your Mercury rulers change of direction and because youre familiar with what may happen, the usual retrograde hassles shouldnt hold you back.
Cancer: Jun. 21 - Jul. 22
It makes no difference what your gender, this week father-son issues carry a hefty amount of weight. Not simply because another Fathers Day is on the horizon, but because this year its possible to benefit from the rewarding trine between paternal Saturn in your Leo house of values and adventurous Mars in your Aries midheaven. Some Crabs will profit financially by maintaining their independence; others could find a way to reconcile experimentation with tradition. Athletes, shrinks and cooks have the best shot.
Leo: Jul. 23 - Aug. 22
Suggesting to a well-meaning Lion that setting limits is the best course may have worked last week, but now that enthusiastic Jupiter is not such a compelling force, the updated advice is: go for it. A favorable trine from ballsy Mars may be able to penetrate the conservative stance Saturn has imposed while its been in Leo for the past two years. No matter how this ultimately rewarding situation comes about, you wont see anything like it for another 30 years. The new moon arrives with a well-informed colleague in tow.
Virgo: Aug. 23 - Sep. 22
Another week of excitement and/or tension, depending on how much is at stake. If youre making a desperate attempt to succeed, having the media-friendly Gemini sun at the top of your solar chart could be your ally. If youre counting on partners support, make sure that their contribution remains within the realm of the possible. Too weird, too wired, too far ahead-of-the-curve can be a problem that wont get solved for another month or so. Remember: your Mercury ruler goes retrograde on the 15th for three weeks.
Libra: Sep. 23 - Oct. 22
If your partner seemed overly optimistic last week, this week the pendulum swings the other way. Not quite into depression, but towards a sobering awareness of the way things tend to work out. Call it the voice of experience or Saturns steadying influence on impulsive Mars in your Aries marriage house. This rewarding relationship can lead to an artistic project or a deeper commitment to a sports team and its glamorous star. Should a talented loved one, e.g., the child prodigy, figure into the scheme of things, so much the better.
Scorpio: Oct. 23 - Nov. 21
Two years ago, when it entered your Leo midheaven, disciplined Saturn became more involved in the development of your career, helping you form and, more importantly, solidify connections to powerful people. This week your energetic Mars co-ruler perfects its rewarding trine to Saturn. Also this week your other co-ruler, cautious Pluto in your Sagittarius house of income earned and treasures acquired, is exposing you to the wide range of possibilities that the versatile Gemini sun knows so well. Aint synchronicity grand!
