Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
You’re in the leadership position, but handling that kind of power at this particular moment requires the ability to unite people in a common cause. Contemplate how you can inspire others to get involved in positive action and then use that information for personal inspiration.
Taurus April 20-May 20.
Honor your desire to stay at home and hunker down in familiar surroundings. Even if the travel goddess starts humming a tune that’s hard to resist, there’s plenty of time to sing along in the coming days. Right now what’s important is acknowledging your need to rest and to restore your inner reserves.
Gemini May 21-June 21
Lively conversations with significant others—spouses, lovers, cousins, or friends—stimulate a new perspective that has the power to shift your attitude and realign your intention. Pay attention to what’s said, but pay more attention to your responses and you’ll discover several new approaches.
Cancer June 22-July 22
It might be wise to focus your attention on specific tasks. Yes, I know it’s Mercury Retrograde and new initiatives are likely to be filled with obstacles. But there are plenty of old projects that require energy and effort, and spending your time dealing with some of those details could be beneficial.
Leo July 23-August 22
You’re in your element, so let your light shine brightly and don’t be shy about taking the lead. Just remember that one of your greatest gifts is generosity of spirit, so as you take the helm, be sure to delegate responsibility to your followers. Everyone benefits from your example, even you.
Virgo August 23-September 22
I’m not suggesting that you start writing the next great memoir (although if you are inspired to do so, have at it), but this would be the perfect moment to chronicle your experiences. The world is shifting, and articulating how that shift affects you will help you to identify your next steps.
Libra September 23-October 22
Lots of social interaction keeps you busy, and while some of these exchanges have the potential to be exhausting, others have the potential to expand your frame of reference and alter your day-to-day patterns. So rather than resist this expansion into new territory, welcome it—you won’t be bored.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
You could be presented with several opportunities to improve your financial situation, and even though the retrograde rule is “nothing new,” these opportunities might be difficult to turn down. Instead of just saying “no,” consider whether the potential benefits outweigh any extra work.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
There’s no need to apologize if you find yourself vacillating between optimism and pessimism—that’s what happens when Jupiter is your ruling planet, although more often than not, you tend to be optimistic. The remedy is to acknowledge your mood swings and accept that you are in process.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
Consider the week a slight break from the unrelenting intensity of Saturn and Pluto in your Sign. Take as many deep breaths as you need to clear the air and meditate as much as possible to clear your mind. When you are ready, give yourself permission to simply rest—the only thing you’ll miss is the stress.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
The best way to avoid strife, internal or external, would be to practice wu-wei, the Taoist principle of taking no unnecessary action. I know that sounds contradictory, but if you can avoid insisting on your way and your way only, the appropriate course of action will present itself at the right time.
Pisces February 19-March 20
The best way to spend the energy of the week is to devote yourself to work—even if you are retired or unemployed, find a meaningful endeavor that will engage your mind and heart. If you can focus your energy and harness your ambition, you’ll keep yourself inspired and active.
