The sun returns "home" to your sign this week. You likely will find it to be energizing. Now is the time to focus on new plans for this next year of your life. Take a fresh look at where you want to direct your energy. It is appropriate that your attention be directed toward yourself right now.
For All Signs: This year's intense stellium of planets in Aquarius now includes Pisces as well. Both of these signs are strongly involved with the Greater Good, humanitarianism, and finding peaceful resolutions for all challenges. Aquarius is more mental, strategically oriented, and strongly inclined to the value of the Greater Good. Pisces is the sign of compassion that cares for those that are in pain. Persons who have the Sun, the Moon, or other planetary energies in either of these signs are bearing messages. Some are highly intense and verbal and others, more introverted, are aching with the need to convey a message of care. Overall this combination of planets is represented in this country by Obama's call to action on finding a "right" way to provide quality health care.
Aries: Mars, your ruling planet, is in Gemini from July 11 through most of August. During these seven weeks, your activities and feelings will be intensified in the life sector related to vehicles, short distance travels, errands, communications, education, your neighborhood, and siblings.
Taurus: A relationship or new situation that began in late January arrives at a point of evaluation. The question of commitment may always be an issue in this situation. The Bulls are careful about commitment because they mean it.
Gemini: Mars, the warrior, entered your sign on July 11 and will be traveling with you until the end of August. This energy is best used to handle physically heavy projects or take initiatives that you might not otherwise tackle. You will feel the need to set boundaries.
Cancer: Relationship problems that emerged into the light during the July eclipses are likely pushed to the background for the moment. You are recovering from the whiplash and shock factors of a changing situation in your partnership.
Virgo: Think carefully about what is truly important to you now, at this time in your life. Don't allow old habits or rules from the past to make your decision for you. Rise above your circumstances to a level that can see beyond your ego and the situation becomes more workable.
Libra: It is possible that you are studying a philosophy or a point of view that is really helping you to understand how to find meaning in life. Others share this study with you and you can help each other. Your new self-reliant start in January now comes to a turning point.
Scorpio: The pressure of pending change is making itself known in your work arena. The fulcrum is a situation that may no longer be tolerable. It is true that change is absolutely necessary, but perhaps a shift to a totally fresh solution would take the emotional sting from the situation.
Sagittarius: Prospects are favorable for getting your wish, especially if it involves your daily work routine. If you need healing on a physical or emotional level, seek out the alternative sources for good results at this time.
Capricorn: The pressures that come with sharing financial resources are causing you to confront new issues related to your partner. The issue already existed, but now it has to be squarely faced by both of you. If this is not occurring with a partner, look inside your own mind for the argument you are having with yourself.
Aquarius: Your effort on behalf of a Greater Good is observed by others and offers a sense of satisfaction at this time. Positive vibes are on the horizon for love, social life, travel, education or legal interests.
Pisces: Pleasure comes your way through home, family or other property. Although you often feel as though you don't belong on the planet, someone will go out of her/his way to welcome you into a "fold."
