ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take the reins in hand now and work toward improvements concerning issues of family, home and vehicles. Make the first move and hold to a positive outlook concerning the outcome. Your attitude is likely to be reflected by others, so give what you wish to receive. Physical energy is also strong.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The Saturn/Pluto opposition is punctuating issues of finances, debt, sexuality, and intimacy. You may also be thinking seriously about existential concerns as well. At present there appears to be help that comes through a family member or through the use of your own property. You are not as alone as you may have felt.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20):Now is the time to handle communications with a serious attitude and careful consideration. If you are involved in a contract, read it very carefully and be certain you are willing and able to fulfill your part before you sign or make a promise. Sincerity will work wonders in issues of intimacy.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is a great week to tackle a heavy physical project, so long as you don't exceed the limits of your body's preparation. Your attitude is positive, even generous, and this will serve you well in all relationships. An apology may be needed. Give it freely or grant vindication with grace.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The inner critic is loud and demanding this week, and it may be directed at you, others, or both. Sometimes it presents its point of view in fearful thoughts and worries. If you allow yourself to dwell in critic-land, it will drain you of energy. Beware of no-win thoughts and fears. Look beyond them to real answers that dwell within.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Incoming news concerning either career or family may be serious. It would be easy to slide into a negative attitude or even panic, if the word is truly difficult. The best approach is to search out all relevant data and determine what part of the news may be transformed by handling it in a better way.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Librans are known for their ability to be objective and to help others arrive at compromises. If you see those around you whose attitudes are hardened into concrete, you may be able to offer an alternative point of view this week, which could make a difference. Avoid alignment with one side or the other for best results.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is a favorable time to follow through on promises concerning financial matters, issues of intimacy and/or sexuality. Lip service won't cut it. Taking action will demonstrate your sincerity (even if this promise was to yourself). Interests concerning education, travel or activities involving those at a distance are favored.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Communications and paperwork are significant this week. It is important that you be clearly specific about promises as well as expectations. Otherwise the outcome may be less than you hoped. You have a power surge of energy, which needs a constructive outlet.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Beware of your inner critic this week. It may be critiquing everyone, including yourself. You can't help but listen, but you don't have to accept that it has the last word on the subject. Insist on finding the positive viewpoint as well. If you need to research data on anything, now is the time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Incoming news concerning children and/or pet creative projects may be serious. Your best approach is to lend an empathetic ear while allowing others to solve their own difficulties. This may be a very good time to consult a trusted friend or a specialist in the area of your concern.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your conscious thoughts and your subconscious mind may be at odds with each other this week. If it seems difficult to move forward, an internal reluctance of some kind may be the cause. Lovers and children are energetic and offer support as well as entertainment and fun things to do.
