I pronounce Uranus the British way, “UR-in-us” instead of the Canadian way, “yur Anus”– and so would you, if you had to say it as often as I did. Uranus represents the unpredictable — sudden explosions, volcanoes, dynamite and accidents. It also represents freedom, a mental leap, a genius-like revelation and anything that broadens your world or gives you more independence. It’s a crapshoot. This week, Uranus lines up with the Sun on Monday; with Mercury on Wednesday; and with the Moon on Saturday. It’s a week full of surprises, accidents (verbal and physical) and unexpected change. It’s a Boy Scout week because we all have to “Be prepared.”
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This week you’ll be singing, “Don’t Fence Me In.” Not only will you want greater freedom and independence; and not only will you resist others telling you what to do; you will have a strong drive to break free from routine, especially oppression. What you’re keen to do is to inject enthusiasm and excitement into your life. This is why you will seek out circumstances and people that are electric and different. You’re hungry for stimulation! You might act on this energetic desire in a rebellious way, which will surprise others and perhaps, even surprise you. In fact, be careful about acting irrationally. There’s a difference between freedom and cocky stupidity.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Exciting changes are taking place in your life right now, but ironically, many people are not aware of this. This is because these changes are taking place behind the scenes. They relate to your personal life or private plans that you have cooking on the back burner. Fortunately, because of the very nature of Uranus, whatever is happening will happen swiftly. (Uranus never sits around getting dusty.) Stay light on your feet and keep your energy pumped, which, in fact, will be no problem for you because fiery Mars is in your sign this month. Ah yes, you are a force to be reckoned with: “It’s Captain Underpants! I fight for Truth, Justice and all that is Pre-shrunk and Cottony!”
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
If there is one sign who hates to be bored — it’s you. You don’t do boring. This is why you will likely be thrilled and stimulated in the coming week. Naturally, your daily routine will be history; but one thing you can look forward to is the fact that you will meet intriguing, fascinating characters, people who are bohemian, avant-garde and different. In all likelihood, these people will be younger than you. They will shake up your headspace and make you look at life differently, which, in turn, will cause you to rethink some future goals. “I don’t want to be a bank teller. I want to fly a helicopter and do voice-over for movies!”
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You’re high viz. now because this is the only time all year when the Sun is at high noon in your chart casting a spotlight on you that is flattering. Yes, in the eyes of others, you look fabulous. Naturally, it behooves you to milk this for all it’s worth. However, while you are playing this angle (something you really should do) surprise encounters with people in authority might blow you out of the water. You could have an argument with a boss. Don’t quit your day job because this explosion, if you will, will be over swiftly. Someone might even prompt you to change your life direction. Pretty heady stuff. Friendships are cozy at this time, as well. In fact, a friend could become a lover. Physical athletics and workouts with others will please you. Hmmm.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
“Oh to be in England now that April is here.” Really, what you need to do is to hop on a jet or do anything so that you can see those telephone poles going by. You want a change of scenery, especially something that is adventurous and stimulating. Hopefully, you will learn something new, as well as enjoy the feeling that you are expanding your world and getting more out of life. Sounds good to me. Do note: While travel is an obvious way to get your kicks right now, many of you will instead, explore sudden opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education. One way or the other, you’re going places!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Tread carefully this week because the part of your chart that is impacted by Uranus (see All Signs above) relates to taxes, debt and shared property. Naturally, you don’t want to be caught off guard with financial matters, especially anything involving your fair share of something, or any debt or payment that you owe someone. Information is power and this is particularly applicable when it comes to money. Oh yeah. Therefore, make friends with your bank account. Find out if the posse is after you. Get the full picture. On the upside, surprise gifts and goodies, inheritances and favors from others might fall in your lap. Yay — the gravy train!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
This could be a rocky road for marriages, partnerships and close friendships this week because all this unpredictable Uranian energy is going to take place directly opposite your sign. This means it will affect your closest relationships. Possibly, someone else is going to demand more space or freedom in the relationship? Possibly, you are the person with demands; after all, this goes both ways. Or you might be surprised at your involvement with someone. You might find yourself entering a relationship that you thought you never would. (“I can’t believe I’m doing this.”) Fun stuff might happen or arguments might break out — could be either one or both.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Something with your work and employment scene will throw you a curveball this week. There’s a strong chance this could relate to technology, meaning you might have computer problems or delays related to electronics or equipment. It might also relate to blow-up at work or a job change. More likely, it’s just snafu related to cancelled meetings, staff shortages, computer crashes and tension with employees. But hey — this could be surprisingly positive. It might mean a promotion, or the allocation of new equipment, or an introduction to an unusual coworker. The only thing for certain is that your daily routine will be interrupted on the job. It should be noted that these same kinds of interruptions could be health-related.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
An unexpected opportunity to take a vacation might fall in your lap this week. Yay! Just what you were hoping for. You might also have a breakthrough with creative activity or something to do with the arts, sports, the entertainment world or the hospitality industry. Quite likely, this will be an exciting week for you. And you might dream up original approaches to something because your ideas are bold and inventive. Admittedly, this can be an accident-prone time for your kids, so parents should be extra vigilant. Please know where your kids are at all times and remove situations that are potentially hazardous.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Your home team will be interrupted in some way this week. This could be because of home renovations, guests who refuse to leave, small appliances breaking down or minor breakages. But there is also a flipside. You might buy something high-tech and exciting for your home. A family member might have over-the-top news that surprises everyone. You might buy modern art or do something snazzy and avant-garde to where you live. Avoid family squabbles because they will not resolve anything. This is a playful time for you, and romance can flourish. This is also an aggressive time for you, if you are involved in sports, because your competitive edge is sharp! “I’ve got it!”
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
This is a busy week, and the pace of your days will accelerate as it goes along. (You’re putting messages in fortune cookies, “Help! I’m trapped in a Chinese bakery.”) The upside about this week is that you are full of original, inventive, genius-like ideas. You’re really stoked and will have brilliant ideas. The downside is this could be an accident-prone time for you, which means you have to be mindful and aware of everything you say and do. Expect to meet new faces and see new places. It’s a thrilling, exciting week. Meanwhile, this is a great time to do renovations at home or make improvements. Decorating projects, in particular, will appeal to you, as will entertaining at home. Invite the gang over for pizza and beer!
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Keep an eye on your money scene because something unpredictable will happen to your cash flow. You might find money; you might lose money. This same unpredictable quality can apply to anything that you own. Therefore, guard your possessions against loss or theft. At a more subtle level, you might experience a change of jobs, or have an opportunity to get a better job. The latter is more likely. Quarrels about money and possessions are also likely. Just take it easy and be confident in the fact that you will improve your employment scene this year — for sure. Factoid. You are diplomatic and persuasive and very skilled with your words this week. (Some people have a way with words; some not have way.)
