This is a quiet week. The skies promote comfort and tranquility. Mercury moves into Cancer on Sunday the 13th, so the sun and Mercury meet together in the sign of the water arachnid. Wet weather, spills, and flooding are likely. Be careful not to get your tech items wet and make home improvements now to prevent water damage. 

Mars and Saturn wrestle in Scorpio, so remain sensitive to the feelings of anyone you might collaborate with. This month, gusto is best paired with compassion. Saturday’s full moon in Capricorn should bring good tidings regarding your career. 

This weekend, go to a beach, lake, or river to interact with water. Swimming will restore your health this summer, for Cancer embodies motherliness and water is imbued with curative powers this time of year.

Aries (March 21–April 19)

Next week should clear up, if family or houseguests have been occupying most of your time. It’s your time to have fun now. The transit of Jupiter, the most jovial planet, into Leo will set your fifth house of pleasure aflame with fun. Your self-esteem will peak when the sun follows suit on the 23rd, so make fantastic vacation plans. Saturday will deliver good tidings at work (the moon is in your sector of honor and status). 

Taurus (April 20–May 20)

You are very busy this summer and excelling at work because of your relationships with colleagues. But remember to take some time off to recharge. Next week, Jupiter enters your celestial sector of domesticity, so time spent around the house will prove extra satisfying. Usually, it’s unadvisable for a Taurus to indulge in lethargy, but it’s crucial to your happiness now. Your zone of home-life is currently Leo, so lounge about like a lazy lion.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)

Your thoughts are occupied by love and money, but keep your health in mind. The aspects favor checkups. Last month was the time for fun, frolic, and superficiality. Your dual nature allows you to be in two places at once, so remember to pair work and play to make the most of your character. Your ruler, Mercury, dives into Cancer on Sunday in your sector of assets: Fast cash is on its way.

Cancer (June 21–July 22)

Go out and socialize at any chance you can, because the heavens favor your sign over all others now. The planets align to bring joy, pleasure, and money into your life. Mercury rushes into Cancer on Sunday; you will seem to emit a magnetic charge that attracts things to you. Converse and be yourself; pull those you want into your world through the confidence you exude.

Leo (July 23–August 22)

Things in your life are haywire now, and it seems as if respite will never arrive. Don’t fret; by the end of the month both the sun and Jupiter will enter your sign, bringing laughter and peace to calm your unsteady home-life. If you haven’t been feeling well, catch up on sleep during Saturday’s full moon. Also, be careful and avoid injuries to the bones, teeth, or knees.

Virgo (August 23–September 22)

Engage in fun activities this weekend as the full moon blooms in your zone of pleasure and childish wonder. Right now your group of friends are wonderful and comforting, but be mindful of what you say or write at this time. As long as you behave sensitively during correspondence, you will avoid the influence of Saturn and Mars making mischief in your sector of communications.

Libra (September 23–October 22)

You are working hard to increase your income, and your travails will at last bear fruits by this weekend’s full moon. Enjoy peaceful time at home, if possible. Try not to worry so much about money. Once you step back, you will see that your skill sets are worth more than you thought. Confidence coupled with peace of mind will bring about success.

Scorpio (October 23–November 21)

This is a time for you to turn inward and reevaluate what you want from life. It’s possible that your perspective has changed quite recently, and your interests point somewhere you had never dreamed of before. Indulge in this newly acquired passion and discover new things about yourself that will change your point of view for the better.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)

Something comes to an end this month — most likely something that’s been a great trouble to you. Worries over money could bother you instead by the full moon. Look to partnerships to avoid this problem. If it is your relationship that has ended, then you may need the assistance of a mental-health-care professional to help you to get through the emotional turmoil. Remain optimistic and remember to smile in public.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19)

The full moon occurs in your sign. This will bring an end to a work situation that has you emotionally involved. If a superior has been getting on your nerves more than usual lately, this feeling may be solved by next week. Your zone of marriage and partnerships is full of starlight, so if you want to team up with someone special, your sparkle has the power to attract.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18)

Once you attend to your health (an absolute must), it will be your turn to meet someone very special. This person will enliven your spirits and stimulate your mind. If you are paired up, the next few weeks could bring a fresh, fun outlook to your coupling. Take advantage of this transit and plan a romantic outing with your partner or someone you find enticing. Foreign travel will transport a sensual lover your way.

Pisces (February 19–March 20)

Distract yourself now by throwing a small party with family or trusted friends. If you have children, it’s a great time to have fun with them — it’s sure to be contagious. If you’re not around children, indulge in activities you may regard as silly or foolish. It’s important to laugh at ourselves when things get too serious, and children are the best people to remind us of this.
