ARIES (March 20-April 20)

It is miscommunication time. You may find that some people may not be agreeing with you. Review your strategy. Do not doubt your own instincts. Communication can play out to your advantage. Sweet Venus hooks up with Saturn. This should add a little tact to your words. Yes indeed, my friend, it is maturity time. You are quite clear about your feelings. Control your words. Make them work in your favor. Raise delicate issues. While Mercury is retrograde, you can wrap up unfinished business. Indeed, cross the t’s and dot the i’s. This is not the time to try to conquer the world..

TAURUS (April 20-May 21)

Run around the pasture. Keep an eye on your health. You don’t want to add those extra pounds, little bull. Take time out and enjoy a little pleasure. Be playful in how you dress and act. Venus and Mercury increase the likelihood of misunderstanding. Other people may step up to the plate, and you may change some strong opinions when Mercury slides back into Libra, a sign ruled by Venus. This is really not a good time to make long-term decisions. Watch out for confusion. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Yes indeed, my friend, you are the creative one. This is your week to focus most of your energy on a creative enterprise. We know you love to talk, but many people may not realize how much you like to write. The sun moves out of your creative department and Mercury, still retrograde, moves in. Go ahead with your old projects, and give it your all. On Wednesday, Venus and Mercury are not happy, and this increases the likelihood of misunderstanding. Truth pops out unexpectedly on Tuesday. Use careful planning or you could look like a fool instead of the genius you really are.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

I know, dear little crab, Mars is in your sign until the end of the year, so anything goes. You feel you have nothing to prove, yet any action you take has a positive outcome. Acknowledge your strength and let others know your intentions. You may already begin to feel the effects of the full moon next week. The moon is your ruler, so you will go with your emotions. Bring your message forward. The planets allow you to make necessary changes. Climb out of your shell. The red planet sends energy. Teach someone the skills to function creatively. Toss out bad habits on Saturday. That’s also a good day to start a diet. Take care of your health.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 23)

A pay raise is possible, and if this occurs, your ego gets a boost. Mercury retrograde could cause a few delays. Bring out the inner child. Run around the playground. Get the best out of your relationships. Overlook any imperfections and acknowledge all strengths. This should allow you to draw people in. Speak softly. You don’t have to yell. Double-check all your facts. I know, Mercury is retrograde. Mistakes can become costly. Now take the time to reorganize. Clear up clutter and get rid of anything that is not useful. Get ready to bring in the new.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 23)

Now, my dear little Virgo, with all your detailing and analyzing, solutions are within reach. What you could not say just a few days ago, you can say now. Okay, Mercury retrograde does cause confusion, and miscommunication has now moved to a different level. You can go ahead and express yourself. I know you play the emotional field, and sometimes you feel full of guilt. Now you still have to think clearly, and remember, you are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. You have the opportunity to engage in open discussion about needs and functions.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

Remember, my friend, education is the key that opens the doors of opportunity. Mercury remains retrograde. This is not the time to make any major purchases. We are between the new moon and the full moon, which arrives next week. Make your wish and set your monthly goal. While you are at it, set your yearly goal. Write down a few of the wishes for the year. Yes indeed, little peacemaker, happy birthday to you later-born little Libras. You wind up your birthday month on Tuesday. Mercury moves backward into your sign for one last hit before he moves direct on November 1. This is the last of Mercury retrograde for 2007.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)

You begin a month of birthday celebration on Tuesday, dear little detective. Happy birthday to you early-born Scorpios. Take a look at your finances and reexamine your commitments. Be a careful shopper until Mercury moves direct on November 1. Okay, I know it is your birthday, but you should make large purchases later. You can expect a few of your friends to show up a little late for your birthday party. Delays are common when Mercury is retrograde. On the positive side, you may hear from people from your past.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You are the sign for higher knowledge, and remember that you should now be concentrating on long-term goals rather than short-term. As the week winds down, you will begin to feel the full moon. Now you will understand why you are so determined. Plan a short journey or at least take time off for a little R&R. Mercury goes direct on the first of November. I know you are willing to take on a more difficult task, indeed, but wait until Mercury, the messenger of the gods, moves forward again before you begin any new projects—after November 1. Add substance to what you have already created.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)

The mountaintop is getting a little brighter. Full moon next week in sister earth sign Taurus. Okay, climb off the mountain and spend time with the little bulls. So you have learned a lesson or two from your past. Thank you very much, Saturn. He’s your ruling planet. Now I know you are in a pattern of focusing on your long-term goals for the future. Go ahead with your social journey. Chat with friends. Accept their invitations. Yes indeed, tell them about your goals, hopes and wishes. Mercury, the communication director, winks at your ruling planet, Saturn. This is an excellent time to tackle difficult issues that will not go away on their own. Saturn provides wisdom..


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Trust your logic, my friend. Yes indeed, dear Aquarius, all ears are tuned to you. Be effective where you are. The full moon will occur in Taurus next week, so you may feel a little anxious as the week winds down. Neptune, the planet of hopes, wishes and dreams, is retrograde in your sign, dear little genius, but he moves direct on the October 31. Then you will begin to see things a little differently as the fog lifts. Don’t make any rash decisions. Yes indeed, Scorpio, step forward for a month of celebration. This brings a bright light to your career department.

PISCES (Feb. 18-March 20)

I know, little fish, you are feeling a little anxious this week. You may decide it is time for a long journey. The moon is full next week. I know you will discuss travel this week with a friend. Could be a friend from another little pond. Your conversations are more practical. You are more down to earth. Now, keep your eyes open, my friend. This is not a good time to get into verbal conflicts even though you may hear something you do not agree with. When the full moon occurs next week in Taurus, people may appear a little more stubborn. Just try to laugh about any misunderstanding.
