ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You may be more concerned about your finances and money in general, than usual now.  That may be, in part, because you are also more attracted to objects of beauty now than you typically are.  In fact even artistic things will probably hold a greater attraction for you than usual and that will likely include the dramatic arts as well as physical objects.  In short, you are not in your most practical mode at this time - and that may cause you to spend more money than you should.  It might be a good idea to try to curb your desire nature to some degree now.  In any case, you will probably indulge in and enjoy some harmless pleasures more than usual now but try to apply some moderation, especially in relation to food, such as pastries, as you are probably a little more inclined to gain weight now. 

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)      

This is a time in your life when you will likely experience growth, expansion and development in your one-to-one interpersonal relationships.  Even your dealings with others in general will bring an aura of constructive possibilities.  You may view the outer world more positively now and you may feel significantly less self-centered in general, possibly even having ecstatic moments of self-forgetfulness.  Your tendency now is to see the outer world, socially and politically, in a more philosophical sense and therein you may have a greater sensitivity towards social awareness and responsibility than usual.  You may find yourself more extroverted than typically with a stronger inclination to see the good in others.  Relationships may assume a mode of greater honesty and openness currently.  But with increased interpersonal self-confidence beware of the danger of becoming arrogant at this time.  Relationships in general will tend to go well at this time. 

GeminiGEMINI (May 21 - June 21)    

Your "frame of reference" for your thinking at this time may be your "ideals," plain and simple, and thus you may be less inclined to compromise those ideals in the face of external social pressures. In terms of decision making though you may find yourself subject to rapid changes of mind at this time and so your ideals may serve as the measuring rod.  You are likely to be more mentally clear currently and thus less affected emotionally in relation to thoughts or decisions that may require logic, regardless of feelings attached to same.  Your communication is likely to be more rapid than typically and that may be reflected in the rapidity of you or your friend's mutually shared speech with each other.  In fact this may be a period in which you are significantly more inclined to communicate with friends.  Others may see you as being or coming across as more emotionally detached at present.  You may even seem to be or feel to be oddly alienated or disconnected from others now despite substantial communications. 

CANCER (June 22 - July 22)    

You are likely to experience a good deal of social grace now within the context of friendships - you may even gain the financial or material favors of a personal friend and benefit from the general goodwill, generosity or support that a friend offers or gives graciously at this time.  At this time there may be a prompting or even temptation to become more involved with another who has hitherto been just a friend or acquaintance - be sure that the changed or increased involvement is appropriate and emerges naturally from emotional intimacy so that the change in the status of your relationship doesn't hurt anyone else. 

LEO (July 23 - August 22)   

This is a good time for self-analysis, that is, looking into your own motivations on a psychological level, so that you can gain a better understanding of what drives you to seek what you feel driven towards.  The more self-understanding at a deep level you gain the more self-control and personal power you gain and the less the chance that adjustments, as you live your life, will be needed later.  In other words, if you really have an insight into what you are aiming for, is clearly understood by yourself, then it is far more likely that your ultimate experiences will be meet as "one" with your expectations.  This is a good time to clear up nagging responsibilities and to set your life's agenda in order and to straighten out and clarify records and schedules that add order to your life and support personal responsibility.  This may be a good time to deal with and take care of any paperwork regarding business matters, such as invoice payments and the like.  You may be more prone to attend to small things, mundane issues and finer details of the general business of your life now and you may also find yourself, in addition to setting your personal business affairs in order, doing a fair amount of cleaning and tidying-up of your personal environments.  If you find yourself a feeling a little more anxious and tending towards worry or even feeling a little compulsive now then it may be that exercise will help to "smooth out" your nervous and muscle systems and help you to relax more.  But it might also be the case that the anxiety is being generated because your preconscious mind is telling you to attend to practical matters now that you may be somewhat neglectful of or even ignoring. 

  VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)  

This is an excellent time for learning about the arts, or about things which are centered within the arts, especially the fine arts such as painting, sculpture, dance, poetry, drama and the like. You will also be attracted towards those things that provide a cultural learning experience or opportunity for you and this may even include a bit of travel. You may find yourself in a position of "ethical" mediator or instructive counselor that this time. At this time you may feel unusually spiritually inspired about a number of personal "developmental" issues in your life, particularly in respect to the overall direction that your life is going in and in the "existential" meaning that you might find in that direction. This may be an especially good time to engage in a new educational or learning endeavor that is not too demanding on your long-term time. You are likely to feel quite good about your goals now and may have more clarity than usual on those issues.   An excellent time to take in a good movie as well. 

  LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)         

You may be experiencing less than stable relationship patterns at this time - the pattern may be one that is erratic and involves an on-off-on-off sequence of inconsistency.  One thing that you should check at this time is the degree of impulsiveness that you allow to drive the patterns of relationships now - it may be in your best interest to think before you act now, especially in respect to any decisions that must be made that directly affect your relationships.  One aspect of this pattern may be a sudden and unexpected emotional detachment that you or your partner or friend bring into play. If you find yourself in a state of emotional detachment you might analyze what feeling state that you might be trying to protect by splitting off from your emotions.  The environment around you personally may be rapidly and dramatically changing currently - the best thing to do regarding that is not to make decisions based on your external world but rather more now on your internal world, that is on your own personal convictions and values.  You may have some electrical or electronic issues currently such as, for example, a computer hard-drive, telecommunications problems or the internet or perhaps issues involving wiring. You may be a little more prone at this time to see the world in more objective or even technical terms - that is you may be a little less inclined to view the world through romantic eyes. 


Scorpio SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)   


The central focus of your life, at this time, is likely to be on practical work and mundane responsibilities, especially in regard to putting your affairs in order, such as in sorting out your finances and in listing the day-to-day priorities in your life.  Attending to things that must be done, regardless of whether or not the activities themselves are "boring" or "unstimulating" will be important now.  Try not to leave any responsibilities undone, unfinished or at least unaccounted for now as you may find yourself having to pay a heavier price later for neglecting those things than  you would as compared to taking care of them at present. 

  SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)    

At this time you may find yourself more interested in forms of art and entertainment, whether you find that on TV, a video, in the theater or in a novel.  You mind may be a little more restless than usual and may seek simple little sources of entertainment or amusement such as drama or even games such as chess, computer based games and card games.  Another thing that you may find yourself attracted to is recreation that is based more on sport activities but it is more likely at this point that any activity involving that would be more along the lines of discussion and registration rather than the activity itself.  (For those who have children this is can be a busy period of more intense involvement in their pursuits, especially in relation to all the logistics and running around required in order to facilitate the activities that the children are involved in.)  You will probably feel a little more self-conscious now, for whatever reason and this may manifest in as strong a way as to express yourself artistically or to be more vainly careful in how you appear.  New romance may begin, at least in a manner now but probably more by way of initial recognition and communication rather than in any feeling mode, such as in feelings of affection. 

   CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)   

At this time the foundational aspect of your life will play a major role and will likely either be at the forefront of your mind or be intuitively drawing on your awareness.  Your home and family will take on a major role and gain the focus of your attention.  Your focus may be taken up with home improvement or interior and exterior decorating now.  Activities such as painting, buying new furniture or home renovation in general may kick into play now.  Interaction and identification with family members may also take on a central role in your life currently.  More extensively, identity with your community may now become important to you, including your residential environment in general, in fact some under this influence may begin to consider a residential move.  All of these issues may significantly impact on or be quite tied up with your sense of emotional security and certainly, if anything, you will find yourself to be more sensitive now, especially in respect to those issues that you directly or indirectly identify as being the basis of your existence or roots.  You may be more in touch with your preconscious mind now and for that reason your dreams may have a seemingly greater impact on you at this time - if so, be mindful of the content of those dreams as there may be an important message there.   


 AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)   

This should prove to be a good time for involvements and activities with friends, in fact you may meet a new friend or two now.  At this time you will quite likely be actively involved with those things that you see as being more towards the ideal and less of a requirement that serve other purposes in your life, such as money.  In other words this is a time in which you are more inclined to engage in activities and associations just in and for themselves, that is, just for their own direct benefit.  You may thus find yourself becoming more engaged in hobbies and avocations as opposed to work based activities and you are inclined to join company with others who have similar interests to your own or you may simply seek the company of kindred spirits now, to whom you can relate to as sharing common ground with yourself.  Make sure that you are not overly distracted by things that do not really help you with the basic practical necessities of your life.  Make a good effort now to distinguish between what is truly your ideal as opposed to what is just an idea. 

    PISCES (February 19 - March 20)                 

You are likely to experience a good deal of social grace now within the context of friendships - you may even gain the financial or material favors of a personal friend and benefit from the general goodwill, generosity or support that a friend offers or gives graciously at this time.  At this time there may be a prompting or even temptation to become more involved with another who has hitherto been just a friend or acquaintance - be sure that the changed or increased involvement is appropriate and emerges naturally from emotional intimacy so that the change in the status of your relationship doesn't hurt anyone else.
