March 21 – April 19 

You've been looking not only for the deeper meaning of life but also the deeper meaning within your relationships. Any conclusions you draw can be liberating but might also encourage you to look out for other possibilities within your closest bonds. There might be more options than you realize. Venus, your planet of relating, moves into Aries this week, which could set you thinking about why one particular connection is so special to you. The answer may not be what you expect.



May 21 - Jun 20 

You're moving through a phase now in which your focus may be turned inward toward your thoughts, emotions, and dreams. At the same time, the Sun is in the topmost sector of your chart, which puts you in the spotlight. If you feel a little uncomfortable, it could be because you're aware that you've changed over recent months and you're still adjusting to your new identity. Over the coming weeks, fresh insights can reaffirm the direction you've chosen.



May 21 - Jun 20 

With Mercury closely aligned with Pluto's transformative energies in an intense sector of your chart, the week's start could encourage a decision. Even if it isn't the right one, the fact that you've chosen can bring a sense of relief. But your friends may have something to say about your choice. You'll need to be strong and positive enough to drown out their voices and stick to your guns. At the same time, the present lively social scene can be very uplifting.



Jun 21 - Jul 22 

A skill that you acquired in childhood could be required as part of your job or for a business idea. Don't worry if you haven't used it in a while. Once you get going, you may find you're an expert. With Mars powering through your career sector, you could be more determined than ever when it comes to finding work or securing a contract. Desire can encourage you to go to great lengths. A little charm goes a long way, too.



Jul 23 - Aug 22 

It could seem like you've emerged from a darkened cave into the sunlight this week as the shift in the planetary picture brings optimism and hope. You might be tempted by new opportunities, but you'll also be eager to see new sights and enjoy being a tourist in another culture. If you haven't booked your next travel adventure, you may do so this week, even if it's at another's insistence. And if you must delegate to get it done, it's worth it.



Aug 23 - Sep 22 

With Mars in a transformative sector of your chart, you may find that it stirs up your inner landscape of patterns and compulsions, perhaps compelling you to take certain actions. Would it be wise to give in to them? It might not if they sabotage your recent hard work. The other way to deal with them is to observe them and allow such desires to pass through you and out. By doing this daily, you could be free of them for good.



Sep 23 - Oct 22 

You could be quite excited by an encounter that seems a little bit out of the ordinary. If this person has magnetism and charisma, you may not be able to resist - and why should you? You could find that going with the flow and working toward a deeper connection is very exciting. It can be even better if you share certain experiences or interests in common. If you do, this might be very special and even have soul-mate potential.



Oct 23 - Nov 21 

You may be ready to embrace the more serious side of the new year now, which could involve committing time and energy to making your goals a reality. However, as Venus, your planet of relating, enters a more practical sector of your chart today, you might want to involve others in your plans. Get your buddies to buy gym memberships and share the joy of getting fit together. Pool info on the healthiest eating places or best yoga classes and enjoy the support.



Nov 22 - Dec 21 

Competitive sport or hearty aerobic exercise can be really good for you now and in the coming weeks. If you've felt the frustration of handling a great deal of responsibility lately, this can be a great way to let off steam and feel more upbeat. Jupiter, your personal planet, turns retrograde in your social sector at the end of the week, so you might need to push yourself to move in new circles, but it could be worth it.



Dec 22 - Jan 19 

The presence of Mars in your home zone can be a call to make some overdue changes. The likelihood is that you'll feel very positive about tackling them. What seemed rather daunting earlier could seem like a piece of cake now, and you might get done in no time at all. Later, Jupiter turns retrograde in the topmost sector of your chart, so your efforts toward achieving a goal may not bear fruit quickly, but they will if given enough time.



Jan 20 - Feb 18 

At times, it can seem like you're the one supporting your friends and at others that they're supporting you, which is how it should be. But this week as Jupiter, your social planet, turns retrograde, you might prefer to strike out on your own and enjoy a few solo adventures. Perhaps there are experiences that you wouldn't have if you were in a crowd or even with one other person. It could be very rewarding if you go down this route.



Feb 19 - Mar 20 

As Venus enters your sector of values and self-esteem, consider investing in yourself in whatever way seems best to you. It may be that you'd feel great with new clothes or a new hairstyle. Whatever you do for yourself can help boost your confidence at a time when you may be a little worn down by all your recent hard work. And if you haven't received much in the way of thanks, it's certainly time to give something back to yourself!
