ARIES (March 21–April 19): Change is afoot! With romantic Venus in your social sector most of March, single Rams could meet someone just by mingling. But messenger Mercury does that blasted retrograde thing from the 5th to 28th. And in your unconscious zone, it could dish out some doozies with communication and technology, so back everything up. On the 6th, game-changer Uranus enters your financial sector for seven years: Start empire-building now.
TAURUS (April 20–May 20): Your career gets a boost with Venus (your ruler) in your public sector until the 26th. Add some creative flourishes and network like crazy. But note: From the 5th to 28th, communicator Mercury is retrograde in your social center. (So if you thought people were flaky before…) The headline news: Game-changer Uranus enters Taurus on the 6th for seven years. What changes are you hoping to make? What steps can you take this month?
GEMINI (May 21–June 20): Get new initiatives underway before your ruler, whimsical Mercury, goes retrograde from the 5th to 28th in your professional and public sector. Miscommunications and tech glitches are likely, so get everything in writing, and back up all important data. Single? You could meet someone while traveling, or an elegant stranger might cross your path here. On the 6th, game-changer Uranus enters Taurus, kicking off a seven-year cycle of inner transformation.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Career opportunities abound this month as the magnetic Sun races through your success zone. Calculated risks are supported, but note that trickster Mercury will be retrograde from the 5th to 28th, increasing the likelihood of miscommunication and technological glitches. And once disruptor Uranus moves into Taurus on the 6th (for seven years), rethink your online presence, whether that means getting more serious with your social networking or going on a digital detox.
LEO (July 23–August 22): Ch-ch-changes are coming, so if you’ve been asking for a shift, you can drop your prayer beads! Radical disruptor Uranus blasts into Taurus and your house of career and public image (for seven years). This is your once-in-a-lifetime moment to take a gamble on your vision, whether it’s a change at your current situation or going in a whole new direction. Your love life also gets a sweet infusion as Venus sails through that sector until the 26th.
VIRGO (August 23-September 22): If you’ve been planning an epic getaway or considering some advanced training (as a student or teacher), opportunities will open up starting on the 6th, when game-changing disruptor Uranus charges into Taurus and your travel, education and adventure zone (for seven years). Think before you speak to your beloved or business partner from the 5th to 28th, when your ruler, communicator Mercury, goes retrograde in your relationship zone.
LIBRA (September 23–October 22): Music to a Libra’s ears: Your love life is the headline-news cycle this month! Your ruler, romantic Venus, is sailing through your seductive sector until the 26th, making you irresistible. At the same time, the Sun is in your partnership realm, making it hard to focus on much else! And on the 6th, game-changing Uranus blazes into Taurus and your intimacy zone for the next seven years, giving you the firepower to bring about any changes you desire.
SCORPIO (October 23–November 21): Think twice before you overshare with a love interest when communicator Mercury goes retrograde from the 5th to 28th in your zone d’amour. And with game-changing Uranus moving into Taurus and your partnership corner for the next seven years, you could enact the shifts you desire. But wait until after the 28th to do anything irrevocable. Feeling antsy? Decorate your home while Venus is holding court in your domesticity quarters!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21): It’s a frisky, flirty month, and single Sags will be exceptionally popular and lucky in love. Attached? You’ll have a “power-couple surge” at the end of the month. Hold off on any home renos while indecisive Mercury is retrograde in your domestic sector from the 5th to 28th. What you love today you might loathe next month! And when radical Uranus moves into your health and self-care corner on the 6th, make you your priority!
CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19): Been fantasizing about your dream home? You can begin to make it a reality this month! The Sun beams through your domestic zone, Venus is in your house of security and possessions, and on the 6th, transformative Uranus marches into your creative corner, ready to knock down walls if necessary. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to make Big Changes—but hold off on anything irrevocable while Mercury is retrograde from the 5th to 28th.
AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18): With charming Venus in your sign and the Sun in your communication center this month, you’ll have a silver-gilded tongue. But it comes with a warning label: Messenger Mercury is retrograde from the 5th to 28th, and signals can get scrambled. Get terms in writing—and be prepared to wait things out. Changes in your home or living situation could come as early as the 6th, but this is a seven-year cycle, so no need rush into anything.
PISCES (February 18–March 20): If you’ve been kicking a financial situation down the road, it’s time to take it on directly. With the Sun in your money zone, you’ll have the confidence to take necessary actions. But with mental Mercury retrograde in your sign from the 5th to 28th, things you think are crystal-clear could be misconstrued. Don’t make assumptions, and get things in (legally binding) writing. By next month, your seedlings could be bearing fruit.
