ARIES (March 20-April 19)
Watch out that you do not take on more than you expected this weekend. Avoid power struggles. Remain focused. Valentine’s Day rolls in Monday. Enjoy the day with someone special. Your friends are there for you. Mercury winks at Saturn. Great time to communicate. On Wednesday, Lady Luck steps forward. You could find yourself in the winner’s circle. With Jupiter in your sign, the red carpet has rolled out. Jupiter remains in your sign until June. Now is the time to take the lead.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Remain focused. With Jupiter, the planet of growth, luck and opportunity, in your 12th house, it is an excellent time to work behind the scenes. In my book, I call Jupiter in the 12th house an angel on your shoulder—your guardian angel. Luck be with you. Put one foot in front of the other. Show your confidence. The folks in authority will take notice. You have four planets in your career department this week. Now, you do not have to share all your secrets.
GEMINI (May 20-June 20)
This week, you could find the opportunity you have been looking for. If you are a writer or have an interest in music you could find a lucky break with four planets in your brother air sign, Aquarius, in your space of travel and higher knowledge. Hook up with your Aquarius friends. This is the last full week of their birthday month. Spend Monday with your Valentine. When Mercury teams up with Saturn on Monday, this sweet trine aspect will anchor in your department of common sense. Remain focused.
CANCER (June 20-July 22)
With four planets dancing around in Aquarius, you are now in the spotlight. You could find your focus on long-term financial needs—taxes, loans or shared resources. The folks in the financial world are there for you. Go ahead and have a chat with your banker. Monday is Valentine’s Day. Spend it with that special someone. If you become a little antsy as the week moves forward, blame the full moon coming up next week in Leo. You water signs—Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces—feel the effects of the full and new moons more intensely than other signs. Chill out. I know you feel as though you have been bouncing around in a sea of change.
LEO (July 22-Aug. 22)
We know you little lions love to party. With four planets in your house of relationships, it is time to celebrate. Monday is Valentine’s Day. Enjoy it with your true love. It is not a good time to argue with the people in authority. While the moon lingers in Taurus, people may appear bullheaded. Could be the folks around work. Don’t waste your time and energy. On Wednesday, the moon moves to your sign, dear Leo. You will be host to the full moon next week. On Friday the 18th, the sun moves to Pisces.
VIRGO (Aug. 22-Sept. 22)
The spotlight shines bright in your daily work department. We know you love to detail and analyze. Go ahead. Show others how creative you are. Saturn will help you bring stability to new projects this week. Monday is Valentine’s Day. Spend it with your sweetheart. On Monday, Mercury, your ruling planet, teams up with Saturn. Good for you. You are back to earth with your values and earned income. Have a chat with the boss. The folks in the work force are friendly. Share your goals and dreams.
LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 22)
This could be one of your most creative or romantic times of the year. Enjoy Valentine’s Day with someone special. Your air signs—Gemini, Libra and Aquarius—love to chat. You are the unique folks of the zodiac. While four planets visit Aquarius this week, enjoy yourself as Lady Luck takes center stage. Take advantage this week before those planets move out of Aquarius. Run around the playground. Next week brings a full moon, and several planets move to your daily work department.
SCORPIO (Oct. 22-Nov. 21)
The folks on the home front take the spotlight this week. This is the last full week for four planets to visit that house. Your Aquarius friends wind up the last full week of the sun’s visit to their sign. Find a birthday party. On Monday, happy Valentine’s Day. Do something with someone special. As Saturn works with Mercury on Monday, share a few of your dreams and perhaps a secret. If you feel antsy Tuesday, chill out, my friend. You water signs—Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces—get a little emotional during full and new moons. Next Friday, the 18th, the moon will be in fiery Leo. Enjoy a week with friends and family.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Chill out. I know you are eager to chat. While four planets visit Aquarius this week, you have a desire to get your point across. Your communication skills are excellent. You could make a major decision before the week ends. This is your week to talk. Make sure all your information is correct. Do not allow anyone to sway your judgment. Lady Luck takes center stage. Opportunity, growth and luck are on your side while Jupiter visits your brother fire sign, Aries, for the next few months.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20)
You need to know this is not the week for all work and no play. I know it is all about earned income with four planets in Aquarius, but this is the last full week your Aquarius friends have to celebrate their birthday month. Spend Valentine’s Day with the folks you love and the evening with that special person. The people in authority are taking notice of you. Your ruling planet, Saturn, teams up with Mercury, the messenger. You have the ability to talk about your professional goals and your future.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
Enjoy the last week of your birthday celebrations. I want to explain something about you later-born Aquarians. If you were born near February 17, you are known as cusp babies. When you are born in the beginning or the end of a sign, it is a good idea to read the neighboring sign as well as your own. Later-born Aquarians may find a little Pisces. The sun enters Pisces on the 18th, setting off a month of birthdays there. Much energy flows your way while four of the 10 planets visit your sign this week.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
The sun travels to your sign next week as your Aquarius neighbors enjoy the last full week of their birthday month. Some of you are cusp babies—those whose birthdays fall close to the 18th. You Pisces with birthdays early in the sign should read both Aquarius and Pisces. Now, I know with four planets in the secrecy part of your chart, you want to spend time alone. Get the rest you need. With the start of your birthday month next week, you are ready to party. Happy Valentine’s Day on Monday. Spend time with your valentine. Monday also is a great day to chat with the folks in the business world. Saturn gives you structure.
