LEO (July 23-Aug 22)
Your financial skills will be tested. Saturn is trying to teach you to value yourself, and don't let material possessions determine your sense of self-worth. You goals and friendships are emphasized. Being the social butterfly whatever happens will be your own doing for a full passionate month. With your warmth and strength you have no problem drawing people to you.
VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 23)
Seek needed rest. The eclipsed full moon throws new systems in work patterns and daily routines. Focus on a step-by-step plan for more confidence and optimism. You deserve to be in good company, so enjoy a treat. Be flexible in matters of transition. Enjoy sharing efforts to achieve results. Hasty actions result in accidents.
LIBRA (Sept 24-Oct 23)
Contact new and old friends. It is an experimental time. Mix with people. You tend to avoid confrontations, but if someone else starts them, you'll be happy to finish them. You may be tempted to overspend and give more than you receive in a relationship, but patience helps. Attend social gatherings and meditate on new projects.
SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22)
Mars-Saturn will test your stress resistance by punching you down and holding you back. If you escape this, you'll speak freely, and follow an urge for something big after your secret investigation from the real world and the mystical dimensions. Inspire to envision fresh possibilities and forgive the past. Be happy, take people as they are, and put aside expectations.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23-Dec 21)
Don't neglect inventive ideas with your need for outdoor and philosophical adventure. Put your intuitive instincts to work to get your goal to the finish line. Associate with people who are good for you. Aggravation on the home front. Lie low and keep your feet on the ground. It is no time to give in to confusion. Avoid arguments. If someone is pushing you, it is for your own good.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 20)
Avoid being stubborn, and try to protect what you care about. If you think you can move mountains, go for it, as Mars in easy-going Gemini are a confident optimistic pair. But your ruler's thinking Mercury asks for the facts. You may turn a fairy-tale image into a regulation and rule-drive plan. Avoid straining yourself. Try to make up for lost time. Also, spell things out to avoid misunderstandings.
AQUARIUS (Jan 21-Feb 19)
Focus on public relations and competition. You will be in touch with all kinds of admirers. Fiery Mars is in your House of Lovers in Gemini, the sign most famous for its love of variety. Believe in yourself and don't procrastinate. Don't let differences in money dealings blow out of proportion. To get things done, involve others - it is a fun way, especially when you let them set the pace.
PISCES (Feb 20-March 20)
Be careful of unreliable partners and share ideals with someone like you, who has a spiritual heart. Break from routine. "Expect the unexpected." If you are attached, take your sweetheart away, maybe to the place of your first honeymoon. Sometimes success comes by accepting a subordinate role temporarily. Some vision or course needs inspiration and commitment.
ARIES (March 21-April 20)
Sometimes you might have to bite the bullet and sit down for a lesson from chilly Saturn when your enthusiastic spontaneity hits a brick wall. Later in the month you'll find a realistic game plan to chase your dreams. When thoughts turn serious, move a little slower. Work goes well, and don't forget that too much of a good thing can hurt.
TAURUS (April 21-May21)
Hard work will be noticed and rewarded big time. A domestic problem may not be as serious as it seems. You'll come up with new answers for old problems. If you're presented with obstacles about a friendship, steer clear of jealousy, and protect your emotions, cause you have to deal with heavy burdens. Patience is your virtue - use it. Also pay attention to family; be more loving.
GEMINI (May 22-June 21)
Siblings may affect your big ideas. Put your ability to the intuitive wave of psychic knowledge supply with awareness and you may use the information in the future. Emotions cause difficulties. Read and enjoy a bit of private time alone. Someone insists on being the one who's right. Try to investigate things and cooperate.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
