(★ Astrology Wonks see bottom of page)

Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
You are vehement about protecting the rights of your independent spirit!  If anyone tries to label or pigeon-hole you this week, including yourself, you will resist with all your considerable might.  The real trick in life, which you have mastered so well, is to keep moving.   Serious Saturn gets in your mix at the end of the week, insisting on forethought and planning.  But you’ll have the gift of concentrating on one goal, and accomplishing lots!  Trash the idea that lengthy concentration is arduous, and that you must struggle on alone.  It’s not all on your shoulders.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Usually you feel that endings and beginnings are the pits!  When you see an end coming, don’t resist.  Lighten up.  It’s simply a new idea taking hold that will speed up the progress you deserve.  Your gifts of discipline, patience, hard work, and the blessing of good judgment work together this week to create a success that looks like "luck" to others.  Just don’t hold yourself back with doubt about your own power and ability.  Once you decide to commit, you'll do it "even if it takes forever.”

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
More than usual, you can count on your eclectic style, unusual habits, and original methods to implementation your ideas. Your unique sense of timing in life, which sometimes works to your favor and sometimes doesn't, takes you on an emotional roller coaster this week. Your highs very high, and your lows, very low. You may find that you jump from one transformational situation to another, but Serious Saturn is challenging you to settle on one thing.  Trust that you’ll have the endurance necessary for the long haul.  Don’t worry, you won’t lose your exciting chameleon adaptability.  

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
You are the zodiac leader when it comes to nurturing, and this week you have an especially strong preference for an open and free atmosphere in which to take care of your children, your friends, or yourself.  Some fears of becoming too close or too attached to others may haunt you and provoke some emotional impulsiveness, which is not usual for you.  You want to build your projects and your life with bedrock security and as little risk as possible, and Serious Saturn supports your efforts.  You’ve got Goliath strength on your side!

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Your emotional energy is all over the place this week!  You’ll feel extremely sociable, friendly and available one minute, and rather aloof, independent, and unavailable the next.  You have little tolerance for overly serious or stuffy people, so you’ll do what you can to loosen everyone up.  Mixing things up for shock value.  But Serious Saturn steps in with concentrated effort and thoroughness at your work.  There’s some resistance when you try to assert yourself or take initiative, so you’ll enjoy working alone.  In fact, it’s where you’ll do your best work this week.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
What would you like to do?  For a moment, set aside what everyone else needs from you.  A craving for newness and excitement may give you a willingness to forego the security of your orderly existence in order to try something unusual.  You’re in for new interests, but without "throwing the baby out with the bathwater"!  Your gifts of endurance, perseverance, and the willingness to work hard payoff this week with success.  Remember it’s love and serve thy neighbor, but you first!  Everything else will fall into place.  

Libra (September 23-October 22)
You need space and freedom, and situations that allow for spontaneity.  Routines will be especially boring this week, particularly those at home.  You need to mix things up a little in order to prevent a restless, unsatisfied feeling.  Change your schedule, leave the bed unmade.  Serious Saturn will give you plenty of impetus to choose practical, realistic goals, step-by-step orderly planning.  Key for you this week is, don’t let your decisions be colored by your monetary fears.  Remember, you can’t always get what you want, but usually it’s not what you needed anyway!

Scorpio ♏  (October 23-November 21)
Unusual is usual this week.  No worries, you are so good at planning a strategy and sticking to it that nothing unusual with throw you off course.  Even though you may feel like the rug is being pulled out from under you any moment now, you’ll still land on your bottom-line feet!  You’re not one who is drawn to traditional roles anyway, nevertheless you need a predictably secure friendship.  With such strong influence right now from Underworld Pluto, your involvement with other people often focuses on the harshest side of human experience. You’re keenly aware of the destructive energies around you, but the Scorpion Eagle in you rise above the battleground as sees the transformation.  

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Rebelling against traditions is something that seems to come naturally, but you might want to be careful that you’re not being irresponsible or insensitive in the process.  Self-discipline is offered to you this week from Serious Saturn, but it may not feel like the gift that it is.  Still, it helps you instinctively realize that any creative achievement is "10% inspiration, 90% perspiration."  You won’t waste any effort when you thoroughly balance your drives with your responsibilities.  Bless everyone with your vision, especially you.  

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Behavioral patterns are quirky, changing, and inconsistent, all week.  This will be most obvious when you are at home or with family and very close friends.  True, you’re humor and spontaneity will see you through, but atypically you’re given to acting on your whims.  Check it out with your strong sense of justice, and you’ll have the best lemonade stand in town!  You exercise great self-control, even self-denial, in order to accomplish what you want.  Even obstacles are stoically met with patience.  At times you’ll feel that you must rely on yourself alone, but try to remember that it's not all on your shoulders.  Who is your rock?

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Your spontaneity and creativity gives your activities an exciting carefree feeling all week.  A deep-seated restlessness and desire to break away totally from your past will cause some well-worth-it emotional tension, so build relaxation into your schedule (that means time to do absolutely nothing!).  Of course, easier said than done.   Serious Saturn makes you capable of great self-control, but seriousness can be a hard task master when you expect far too much of yourself.   And you do!  This week has an unusual challenge:  If you start to feel anger or frustration when you work with others, you are depending too much on their support.  It’s not usually your cup of tea, but right now you’ll work best in solitude.  

Pisces ♓  (February 18-March 19)
An unusual pattern and way of expressing yourself can be interpreted by others as flighty, indifferent, or irresponsible.  It’s not so, but you’ll do yourself a favor by keeping people posted about your ideas and plans.  This week you’ve got a good luck charm from your visionary view of the final results of your efforts.  You know how to get to your goals through steady, patient, and persistent progress--and visioning your future as if it were true now.  Ask to find the compassion to honor your own heart’s desire.  

✶ Astrology Wonks
An Aries Moon gives us an explosive wake up call this Wednesday when this fiery ball of feelings first conjuncts Urgent Uranus 5:07 AM, PST.  Then she grabs a bit of curiosity and optimism from an easy sextile with Jovial Jupiter at 6:02 AM, and quickly runs into a misunderstanding (square) with Powerful Pluto.  It shakes her agile feet and opens up a cave of deeply intense feelings.  

Triggers of the upcoming 3rd and 4th squares of Uranus and Pluto occur midweek.  Revolutionary Transformation that began with the Arab Spring aren’t done yet!  Mark May 20th and October 31st for pivotal events and universal turning points.
