Mercury in Libra — When the planet of thought and communication studies in the sign of balance and harmony, our words and ideals aim for fairness and diplomacy. It’s a good time to weigh options and make decisions for the benefit of a group.
March 21 — April 19
One of your best qualities, Aries, is your fiery inspiration and ability to kick things off with a bang. A quality you’re less well-known for is your follow-through. However, if you decide to channel your fire into taking care of the tasks before you this week, your chart indicates major increases in your wealth and resources. Right now you’re more dynamic and creative than ever, and your projects are blessed with luck. Your personality shines and your talents are on display, so don’t be surprised when others come to you for help or guidance; be kind, but don’t let it sidetrack you from meeting your own goals. Lead by example!
April 20 — May 20
As a stable earth sign, Taurus, you value nothing more than what is aboveboard and honest. It takes you by surprise when people in your circle, whether coworkers, family or friends, say one thing and do another. Keep your eyes open this week — they’re preferable to your ears for now, as actions should mean much more to you than words. Trust your instincts, and don’t be discouraged if some people turn out to be different than they seemed. This is actually a blessing that can lead you to better communication and more authentic relationships. Be true to yourself and your personal standards — this is when you really shine.
May 21 — June 21
Hold on tight, Gemini! A tidal wave of movement is building in your chart, and you are going to be riding it any minute now. No worries — you won’t be preparing alone. Powerful Pluto is plotting in your House of Allies, so you’ll be surrounded by people in “high places” that can lift you up and help you on your way. A little secret of the Universe: Gratitude is magic. When you receive, give plenty back, and be prepared to pay the effort forward when you’re presented your chance. This week is incredibly energetic for you — use this time to complete projects, tackle to-do lists and explode procrastination.
June 22 — July 22
Your power comes from your emotions, Cancer. You can empathize and communicate in a way that helps others understand things in ways they never have. This week, the way you relate to others is colored a deeper darker shade, with the planet of power, Pluto, in your House of Relationships. If you’re not aware of the potent magic you currently possess, you could even knock a few people over with your passionate, direct style. If channeled through your trademark compassion though, you attract all the people whom can help you accomplish the goals you’ve set. Passion and sensuality are indicated as the week goes on — have fun!
July 23 — Aug. 22
Life is probably looking very different than it was even just a month or two ago, huh, Leo? Your chart says that you’re feeling thrown out of your comfort zone. You may not be feeling it yet, but this is actually quite a lucky stellar occurrence. If you’re feeling a little antsy or uncomfortable where you are, take heart: You won’t be there long. Aspects in your chart indicate a new adventure is around the corner, and the best way to get there is to infuse your actions with your principles, your heart. You may also be forced to bring some information to light that could upset a few others — the Universe supports you when you choose to grow despite obstacles.
Aug. 23 — Sept. 22
Life is moving in a new direction, Virgo, and it’s been a long time coming. Be willing to speak up this week — ask for what you want, or stand against what you don’t. New opportunities are forecast for you, and this is the very reason that you must be straightforward about what you want, both with yourself and others. It’s an incredibly social week for you; new friendships or networking opportunities (there’s that word again!) are indicated, even the possibility of a new romance. There is an element of temptation in your chart as well — be sure that you aren’t falling for “greener grass.” Make a list of pros and cons first — you know you love them!
Sept. 23 — Oct. 22
It’s back to basics for you this week, Libra! As the sign of the ever-swaying scales, you benefit from a strong, stable foundation from which to weigh your lofty ideas. It’s a good time to reevaluate your budget, clean house, rearrange furniture, and generally prepare yourself for the beneficial changes that continue to drift into your life. If a sense of nostalgia or even melancholy creeps in this week, don’t worry. You’re processing everything that you’ve been through recently. Even when we’re in a better place, we sometimes look over our shoulder to be sure. All is well. Trust your intuition and keep moving forward.
Oct. 23 — Nov. 21
You’ve got this, Scorpio. Your chart says you definitely need to hear those words right now. With giant Jupiter in your House of Career, you’re a big deal right now. Lots to do, lots of people looking at you while you do it. Stress is on the menu, yes, but also a heaping helping of accomplishment and reward. Your House of Communication is imbued with Pluto’s potency, so you are regarded as an authority whenever you speak this week. Allow this wisdom to filter through you when you are taken aside for a heavy conversation or two this week. No worries — you’ll know exactly how to handle it. Take some time for your own creative projects — beauty and time for dreaming benefit you now.
Nov. 22 — Dec. 21
This week is all about value for you, Sagittarius. Yours, others’ and financially speaking as well. With the Sun shining in your house of Career and Destiny, all eyes are on you, and your chart indicates that they like what they see. It’s time for you to look your best, speak succinctly and have crystal clear intentions. You’re impressing others who have the means to help you make your dreams come true. Your House of Allies is blessed by lucky Jupiter, indicating that friends, coworkers, helpers and investors will be coming out of the woodwork to help you complete your inspiring project. Be sure to give credit where it’s due and make your cohorts feel appreciated. You get as you give.
Dec. 22 — Jan. 19
It’s time to make yourself known, Capricorn. You’re no showboat — you’ve got quiet confidence that says you don’t need to boast, and with potent Pluto in your House of Personality, there’s no telling what kind of transformations you’re capable of creating. Your power of personality also draws in new connections of all sorts—friends, cohorts and even admirers. Make sure that you spend time with those who love you for who you are, not what you can give them. This week, the stars grant you full permission to focus on yourself, feeling the way you want to feel and getting where you want to be. (They’re directly connected, you know.) Your financial future looks sunny — be practical and positive.
Jan. 20 — Feb. 18
Are you feeling the heat from the spotlight pointed directly at you yet, Aquarius? Your chart has marked you with a sort of cosmic highlighter, making it impossible for you to fly under the radar, even if you wanted to. A transformation is not just on the horizon—it’s already here. You may feel it in the small adjustments you’ve made almost without realizing it. These times of enrichment — dare I say enlightenment? — usually come with some emotional load that you have to carry to the finish line. It’s not a permanent weight—ironically, you only have to carry it until you’ve decided you’re done carrying it. You can set it down any time you are ready. Ready to enter a brave new world?
Feb. 19 — March 20
Congratulations, Pisces! If you haven’t yet, you are about to celebrate a big, new step in your life! You’ve been dreaming of this step for a long time, but your chart indicates that you’ve awoken, and you’re ready to let that magic flow into your waking life. Your energy is amazingly attractive now, drawing in opportunities and allies who can help you realize them. Benevolent Jupiter and loving Venus are blessing your House of Work, indicating a new source of income. Above all, this is a time of movement. Don’t allow yourself to passively take in what comes — be an active player. Create your circumstances rather than evaluating them. The future is light and bright — trust your intuition; follow your happiness.
