Tip of the Week:
Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius remains in the spotlight. It is playing a lead role literally and figuratively. That it is retrograde adds a sharp spike to the already potent punch. Jupiter is big, very big, and so its influence is as well. It forms a couplet with Saturn as one of the two ‘social planets’. Together, these two planetary giants synchronize social, evolutionary cycles. As ever, how these will influence any given country is subject, in part, to that country’s Birth Chart. Of course the same is true for each individual person. Yet, in our modern age, the information super highway is inevitably and inexorably producing a global culture, whether we like it or want it or not. Jupiter’s role currently is to blend cultural beliefs and smooth out the edges where differences are pronounced. There remains a long way to go in this regard, but it is happening quickly now. The balancing act for us all is to acknowledge distinction yet forge unity. Unity in diversity is the operative phrase.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You are poised to enter the next effective phase. It could be said that you have broken through the surface crust layers. With the way cleared somewhat, you will really begin to drive hard. This includes a close communication process. You want to be extra clear about your direction and objective before you go for it.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
This is perhaps the busiest time of you for many and especially you. Tending to both your personal and your professional responsibilities is the reason. This year you are in an experimental mood and are keen to try new approaches. Yet, you have to test before you commit and this is a main focus now.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Taking new leads and strides is likely now. Some of these may be more due to necessity than inspiration. Your ability to adapt is extra important. Deep changes that have been underway for a couple of years or so continue. These together reveal an overall process of deep changes, yet you may have to really step back to recognize them, or you don’t because they are alarmingly clear.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
Keeping busy behind the scenes continues. Positively, this could find you happily in your yard planting your garden. Otherwise, you are happy to lay low for a while. Busy could apply to reading a book which has captured your imagination. Meanwhile, circumstances are pushing you to be more assertive these days, so make the most of this time-out.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
Experimenting on social fronts finds you actively breaking old patterns. Trying new methods and approaches with social media, looking for new employment and joining new groups and clubs are all examples. One way or another, things are shifting and shaking especially in your public and professional life so focus to engage deliberately.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
If you have been working for earned rewards and waiting for your time to gain recognition, the time has come. You may have to focus to break through limiting and restrictive beliefs and self-concepts. This could amount to being one of those times when you ‘feel the fear but do it anyway’. Patient perseverance is ever wise but now it is time to go for gold.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Paying closer attention to the details of the big picture is keeping you busy now. This can include assessing current activities in light of long-term implications. Keeping other goals and interests in mind is featured. This altogether constitutes the goal of striking a healthy balance so that your long-term goals are supported by your current commitments.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Circumstances are inspiring and perhaps pushing you to be more realistic. Some measure of research and investigation is implied. Changes on relationship fronts are indicated and if they have not already occurred, they are brewing. The likelihood is that these changes began last year but have now entered a major developmental stage.
Sagittarius (Nov 22–Dec 21)
Social opportunities are abounding for you now. These include a process of significant change in your overall lifestyle. Establishing these is requiring more effort than you might have bargained for, however. This will not last long but is active now. Yet, your ambitions are running strong leading you to confront hidden blocks.
Capricorn (Dec 22–Jan 19)
Your brain is working overtime. Both logical analysis and imaginative and intuitive thinking are all engaged. Getting clear regarding your dreams, visions, goals and plans represents the linear part. Success now requires that you work cooperatively. Family members may be your main focus but business associates are in there too.
Aquarius (Jan 20–Feb 19)
A fun, social and creative cycle is underway. It does include work too, however. The efforts required represent a slow but sure process, but also holds deep implications for the future. These may be described as practical, yet may also amount to cultural advancement that reveals hidden talents and serves to boost your confidence.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
Staying busy close to home is likely and preferred now. Positively, this is a creative cycle and you are able to get a lot done. You are probably busy attending to a variety of fronts. As well, destiny has brought you to a time when you are meant to think differently about your approach. This may not be entirely comfortable but is important.
