This week is relatively mellow except for some tension that starts to build on Friday before the Full Moon in Scorpio on Sunday. Four signs are called Fixed Signs (they can’t have kids). They are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. When the Full Moon occurs in a Fixed Sign, it has a greater depth, energy and intensity. This means everyone will feel the Full Moon next weekend. (Count on it.) Everything will have an exaggerated quality — both good and bad. Aside from that, it’s an easy-going week, for which we can rejoice. And by the time this column is published, some cities will rejoice the first round of the NHL playoffs. Others will not. Someone once said, “The most difficult part of getting to the top of the ladder is getting through the crowd at the bottom.” Ain’t it the truth?
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This week your focus is on money, major purchases, cash flow and how to make money. You will be assertive in all your communications with others, in part, because you identify with your beliefs. If you have to sell anything or sell an idea — you will be successful. Your social life will be light-hearted and friendly because you will enjoy hanging out with others. This is a good time to let others know how much you love them. You can also make money from your words through sales, writing, marketing, acting or teaching. Continue to fine-tune your vacation plans. And don’t forget the possibility about more than one vacation! By Friday, tension about money, shared property and who is responsible for what will build until Sunday night. Good luck.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This is a high-energy time for you because the Sun is in your sign. Mercury and Mars are also in your sign, which make you want to talk to everyone and express your ideas. You have strong opinions now. You also want to look good to others, through what you own. Fortunately, this week is pretty solid when it comes to finances. In fact, you can borrow money, if you must. This might be in the cards for some of you because right now is one of the best times in a 24-year cycle for you to explore real estate deals. Don’t ignore this. By Friday, tension with partners and close friends will increase because of the Full Moon on Sunday, which is the only Full Moon opposite your sign all year. Good luck.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This week you are truly the Twins. One of you wants to hide and work alone or behind the scenes. The other one is prancing boldly and wants to show the world what you can do. Mind you, this aspect of you is also willing to work hard, and will make you fight for your own rights. Fortunately, fair Venus softens everything cloaking you in diplomacy and charm. So depending on your mood, this is a Jekyll and Hyde week for you! Now you see me, now you don’t. Be patient with co-workers because on Friday, tension before Saturday’s Full Moon will start to build. This energy might even affect your health. Good luck.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
It’s still a popular time for Cancers. Enjoy schmoozing, especially with younger friends. Some of you are more involved with groups and clubs as well, in part, because you feel you have something to say. However, some of your activities are taking place behind the scenes, and these hidden activities include secret love affairs. (Oh yes.) Look for ways to boost your income because they still exist for you. However, on Friday, expect conflict and tension with children as well as romantic interests. This can also apply to sports events. The tension will not subside until the Full Moon in Scorpio peaks on Sunday night. Good luck.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You continue to be high viz. because the Sun is at high noon in your chart casting a spotlight on you. Use this to your advantage because you look great in the eyes of others. Physical activity, especially athletics, is a good idea this week, and because you feel competitive with someone, this might be a way to blow off steam. This is the perfect time to formulate goals and start to pursue them. Relations with others are cozy and friendly. Make the most of this. However, from Friday onward, tension between home and family and your private life vs. your career and your public life will increase. It will be over by Sunday night. Good luck.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You’re keen for adventure and a chance to travel because you need a change of scenery. You’re just as keen to learn something new, which is why any form of study or the enrolment in a course, or a chance to learn a new language will appeal. Meanwhile, your ambition is aroused and you look great in the eyes of authority figures. In fact, you look so great some of you might strike up a romance with your boss. However, do be careful because on Friday, tension will start to build before Sunday’s Full Moon. This tension could distract you in some way and create an accident-prone situation. Good luck.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You want to trip the light fantastic and fly away somewhere that is fun and adventurous! You also want a chance to appreciate beautiful places, which is why this is a great time to visit art galleries, museums, special, architectural buildings and parks. Because your appreciation of beauty is heightened, you will enjoy these places. However, trouble in paradise looms on Friday and continues to grow until the Full Moon late Sunday. Disputes about shared property taxes, debt and who is responsible for what, will create problems. By next week, this tension will diminish or disappear. Good luck.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This week, you can benefit from the wealth and resources of others because gifts, favors and direct cash will come to you. This coincides with opportunities for you to boost your reputation in a lovely way. To put a finer point on it, intimate relationships will be hot and sexy. This is a good thing because it will counteract some of the tension that will inevitably arise from the fact that the only Full Moon in your sign all year will be occurring on Sunday. Aagghh. It will trigger increased tension with partners and close friends beginning Friday. (You can run but you can’t hide.) Patience is your only recourse. Don’t overreact because this will only make things worse. Good luck.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You’re keen to get better organized this week. Some of you are actually labeling jars, oh yes. Likewise, you want to improve your health as well. Very wise. It’s important to stay in shape because so many travel opportunities are coming your way now, and you have to be able to sprint across any airport. Meanwhile, you’re working hard and busy delegating to others. Fortunately, fair Venus, opposite your sign, sweetens your partnerships and close friendships making relations with others mutually beneficial. Nevertheless, expect tension from Friday onward, especially with co-workers until the Full Moon peaks on Sunday night. Good luck.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You’re pulled between a desire to play and have fun, and a need to work hard and keep your sterling reputation shining. Fortunately, relations with co-workers are so good now, many of you will get a raise or at least, glowing praise. (Recognition is always nice.) This means your challenge is to balance your need to work, with your need to be playful and flirtatious. Meanwhile, remember that this is an excellent time to go for a mortgage or get a loan because you will benefit from the wealth and resources of others. Unfortunately, starting on Friday, tension with children and romantic partners will mar some of your fun, and this will not really be resolved until Sunday night after the Full Moon peaks. Good luck.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Some kind of insanity or increased activity and chaos continues on your home front. This could be because of visiting guests or renovations or redecorating projects. Who knows? (Actually, you know.) Fortunately, relations with children and opportunities to enjoy sports events, the arts, the entertainment world and the hospitality industry are excellent. In fact, romance will flourish for many of you because you are in the mood for love! Do take note: From Friday onward, increased tension on the home front or with authority figures and parents will mushroom and not subside until after Sunday night when the Full Moon peaks. Just cope as best you can. Good luck.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
This is an excellent week to redecorate at home and entertain loved ones. In fact, why not invite the gang over to see what clever things you have accomplished? “That rug really ties the room together.” This is also a good week to explore real estate opportunities. Meanwhile, you will be successful in most of your communications with others because you are direct and proactive right now. However, if you are too direct, it could start to backfire on Friday, when tension before Sunday’s Full Moon starts to build. Be careful because this tension could be a distraction for you and create an accident-prone situation. Be mindful. Pay attention to everything you say and do. Good luck.
