VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 23)
The most important message in this time is self-care, and Mercury back in Virgo has you thinking about how you look and present yourself to others. With clear thinking you've yet to consider serious decisions carefully. Use the right words now to take you far, and don't let the ego get in the way. It may be that you need some adventure or daring in your life; after the 20th Venus enters your sign, turning you into a magnet for new admirers.
LIBRA (Sept 24-Oct 23)
Get ready to tear down limitations and break free from the past's karmically releasing habits and unhealthy abstractions. Private revelations you've been gifted with can elevate your perspective when you feel that forces beyond your control are in your way. If you take constructive action on your visions everything will manifest itself for real. An intimate setting brings goals within reach. Whatever you do, do it for fun. This time you'll have to give more than you get.
SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22).
Expect all kinds of happy news to come your way. Your schedule may need to be altered - be forgiving. If you have to draw back and regroup, be sure not to let a small worry blossom into a major problem. Look below the surface and get answers others miss. Personal finances are favorably emphasized but don't go overboard. Use your ability to read between the lines. If you're feeling anxious or depressed seek the advice of a physician.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23-Dec 21)
If you have to follow the ideas of authority, help from above could be just what you need. Pluto replaces trust with suspicion and you feel that you can't back down, but dark strategies put resources at risk. And you have to realize that other people want tolerance and liberty as much as you do. A break with the past seems inevitable so you can move forward. Social fun and gatherings are in store for you, as well as new beginnings with career, business and community standing.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 20)
Remember how hard you've worked at self-improvement and control. Tend to a professional matter with an eye towards fairness and equality. If you handle the situation well you will have a raise or promotion. Turn your attention towards your body. Your strength lies not in knowing the right answers but in asking the right questions. Try to appreciate others and in the work arena chose your battles carefully. Reserve moral judgments.
AQUARIUS (Jan 21-Feb 19)
Don't upset your financial foundation or credit limit. There may be confusion as to how you express your beliefs and how they are heard. Some delays and problems are in the air with some power struggles with your inner conflicts. You have to work on liberation and pursuing new paths. In order for your big dreams to come true, don't lose sight of the work that is necessary. Regarding differences, keep an open mind and back up promises with action.
PISCES (Feb 20-March 20)
You may make wild impulsive changes in the way you relate to a long time partner. Venus in Virgo can heal a wounded partnership and return passion and an air for cooperation, compromise and mutual agreement, but watch for Sun-Pluto and Mercury-Uranus upsets, which could bring a sudden "no" ending. Don't indulge in outbursts because misunderstandings are likely until Mercury goes direct on the 29th. Then you ask questions to find out what is going on.
ARIES (March 21-April 20)
If you've done the work, an influential alliance will support your ambitions. So enjoy a passionate side through a more intimate encounter. Avoid confrontations due to the pushy, poor-judgment influence of Mars- Jupiter and use your self-control for the battle. A career/financial surprise may come up after the 22nd and someone from the past might be the cause. About a health issue that's worrying you, talk to someone you trust. A friendly brunch can be delightful.
TAURUS (April 21-May21)
If you take the right changes and make the right choices, long term benefits help you balance personal interests with social freedom or exciting new friends. Be careful signing papers. It is time to get yourself back on a budget. Sweet romance is in the air for three weeks. Enjoy your romantic pursuits and avoid doing things too quickly. Some relationships have a few minor setbacks to deal with and frustrations to iron out.
GEMINI (May 22-June 21)
A period of introspection and re-evaluation will lead to a wise, rational new worldview. Hot Mars is on duty in your house of finances for the next six or seven months, so don't hesitate to ask for advice. If someone new moves into your area, the two of you could strike up a friendship or personal relationship. If single, look after the 22nd to bring someone new into your life. Some emotions turn private and obstacles must be faced head-on. Work and reputation are in favor.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
You get a glimpse of others' viewpoints and work on old problems with a fresh outlook in order to be released from emotions that kept you trapped. Some luck after the 20th. Heaven help anyone who disagrees with you this month and you may spend a bit more on entertaining. Pent-up emotions make you sick, especially for your sign which rules the emotions, so do yourself a favor and let your feelings out. Protect your health and keep an open mind.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22)
Something you've been pursuing as a hobby is about to begin paying off big time. A renewed interest in your health may be a part that helps out. As a change you meet someone who'll further your career and monetary interest. If you really care, let your mate call the shots on the 22nd. Your sun changes signs and you're ready to don your social hat for a while. Think before you say what's on your mind and steer clear of any arguments because people take offense easily.
