Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
The Moon moves into your Sign today and its presence is likely to stir passionate feelings—just what you need when you’re doing your best to stay calm, cool, and collected. Never mind the emotional intensity—stick to your plan of taking personal responsibility for what you’re doing in the moment and you’ll handle the increased intensity with skill.
Taurus April 20-May 20.
Your week carries a fair degree of financial tension and while some of the stress is unavoidable, I wouldn’t allow it to interfere with the real progress you’re making toward your career goals. Yes, there have been setbacks as well as surprising twists of fate, but that doesn’t mean you’re failing to actualize your dreams. It simply means you are going to have to work harder to keep it real.
Gemini May 21-June 21
Try not to let stressful interactions with significant others spoil your plans and efforts for meaningful contact with those you love and work with. It won’t be easy softening your stance—you have a lot to say and it’s important and necessary to express yourself. But it’s also important to listen to others carefully so you can truly hear what’s being said and make the necessary adjustments.
Cancer June 22-July 22
Whether you’re working for yourself or someone else, gainfully employed or seeking employment, actively engaged in career pursuits or retired, be open to telling yourself a different story about work. I’m not suggesting unrealistic plans for expansion or fear of financial contraction. I’m advising that a shift into a fresh perspective will provide opportunities for successful endeavors.
Leo July 23-August 22
The story you’re looking for is one that helps you connect your creative endeavors to a larger community that appreciates your participation. As you search, be sure your story contains your efforts to succeed as well as your innate generosity of spirit—be happy for those in your life who have already achieved their goals and you’ll create a positive field for your own success.
Virgo August 23-September 22
So many stories are yours for the telling that it’s hard for you to know which one to focus on first. Take a moment to see what you are passionately drawn to and then pay particular attention to the obstacles that immediately impede your vision. Those obstacles are the issues that need a new story—one that is positive, powerful, and makes you proud to tell it.
Libra September 23-October 22
You’re definitely telling yourself—and anyone else that will listen—a new story about relationships, especially about your relationship with yourself. So take a deep breath and get ready to create a tale that rivals the adventures of brave Ulysses. Try not to limit yourself to the distant past—the last few years have been a wild exploration of what partnership means, and you survived, which is a tale all its own.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
You can focus on money, and if you do, please also read Taurus, above. But also include this: Your desire to work trumps any obstacles, financial or other, because once you make up your mind to get the job done, very little, if anything, can deter you from your goal. You’re like the postman: Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays this courier from getting the job done.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
It’s simply a matter of choice: tell yourself a sad story resembling Sisyphus’ fate, a story of toil and labor, or tell yourself a story of joy and the thrill of being alive at a time with so many options and opportunities. I’m not suggesting a magical story that denies reality. I am suggesting that perspective is everything—remember, the universe rearranges itself to accommodate our picture of reality.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
You’ve done a great job thus far—it isn’t easy handling the presence of a Saturn/Pluto conjunction. As today’s Aries Moon pounds that conjunction, you’re tempted to tell a different tale, and maybe a woe-is-me story about how hard it is. You can tell that story of suffering, or you can continue to ask: “what is my spirit is trying to learn from these difficulties?” and continue to grow.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
Give yourself permission to have intimate conversations with those you love and as you do, to go for the gusto—speak from your heart and don’t be afraid to express your feelings, even if they are uncomfortable. The story you ultimately want to tell is a story of love; sometimes that can include difficult subjects, but more often than not honesty always evokes a positive response.
Pisces February 19-March 20
You can continue to tell the story of conflict between work and home, but it won’t resonate with the same effect, if only because you’ve outgrown it. Spend some time thinking about the tale you would like to tell—a new story about cooperation and teamwork around creating a healthy home where everyone’s efforts are appreciated and valued.
