This week the element in deficit is air; there is a balance between fire, water and earth and this points to a plethora of emotions and actions with no real consideration behind them in the big world. No matter your political or religious affiliation, know that this is a temporary and intense time on the world stage, necessary as a reality check and a dose of “What are we doing to ourselves?” kind of thinking. Times like this happen when a wave of simultaneous impacts hit cultures and societies and the synergetic effect of demanding change produces tangible results, for better or for worse. With the lack of mental energy coming from the heavens, we have to rely on our own more.
Mars ingresses to Pisces on Thursday, and since he is an action oriented, fiery and energetic planet he isn’t happy being in a water sign, ever. Pisces is a sign that has difficulty with boundaries and is known to jump the banks and flood everything around it; on the other hand, Pisces is the Dreamer and the poet, the one that holds reign over fantasy and imagination. Mars will square Jupiter in his own sign of Sagittarius and typically, these two signs don’t get on well because Sagittarius is independent and can’t stand being bogged down in emotions where Pisces considers feelings and emotions almost before anything else. What’s called for is a focus on balance, facts and a good look at trends. In our own lives, reason and thoughtfulness will bring more rewards than a heavy hand and need to control.
Venus in her own sign of Libra comes out of retrograde this week, and she’ll be the only air sign planet emanating logic and strategy. She’ll become the morning planet once again as our planet tilts further toward winter and Venus’ orbit changes. You early birds will enjoy seeing her bright light in the predawn sky!
Keep looking up and looking after each other!
Happy Veteran’s Day Monday; yesterday marked 100 years since the guns fell silent on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

Aries (March 21- April 19): This week begins well enough, but things could get a bit sticky due to your Ruler Mars entering the sign of Pisces on Thursday (your sector of Endings/New Beginnings) and forming a square with Jupiter in your sector of Expansion. Something from your past could block your way on the road you’re trying to travel during the next couple of weeks. Watch your words because after Mars is done squaring Jupiter, it will be Mercury in conflict with Mars. Always something, isn’t it? Jupiter will expand anything he touches, especially in his own sign. That being said, you’ve basically got this unless something takes you by surprise and makes you mad. A quirky week, indeed!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): This week looks pretty darned good for you to get done what needs getting done before Thanksgiving, whether it’s extra work, homework, sorting out travel plans or gathering the food for the feast. Some lovely alignments involving water signs are soothing your nerves and keeping you steady; you may even be enjoying extra good sleep now. On Thursday, Mars enters Pisces and will tour your sector of Friends/Goals. At first he’s going to square up with Jupiter, but the argument will not last long nor cause you any damage as long as you don’t rely on unreliable people to keep any promises made to you.
Gemini (May 21- June 20): This week Mars moves into Pisces and causes a bit of a problem with Jupiter who’s in Sagittarius. Since you’re one of the Mutable signs, you’ll feel it and it might make you crabby and impatient for a while since you prefer to move fast and on the surface. There may be others wishing for you to deep dive with them emotionally but that just isn’t your style; you want to figure it out, fix it, and move on. You may also have your own pile of stuff internally to deal with, leaving nothing to give. That’s okay, just be honest about it. This occurs on Thursday, so make hay while the sun shines and get ready for a potential pity party in the next few weeks.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): This week has some thrills and spills, but you’re likely going to be more of a spectator than a participant in the spills part. On Thursday, Mars moves into your companion water sign Pisces. This causes a bit of a stir because he won’t be in a very good alignment with Jupiter, so you may feel some stresses around travel plans or university life and your health or job. If conflicts start popping up in scheduling, hold on and see what will ease up first. If you get impulsive you may cause another problem you don’t want.
Leo (July 23-August 22): Other than Mars entering watery Pisces and arguing with Jupiter who’s in your sector of Creative Expression, this week holds quite a bit of a variety for you. Stick to your guns and don’t let someone else’s whining and complaining deter you; you’re on a mission! Venus is coming out of retrograde in your sector of Thinking/Communication and she’s in a lovely alignment with Mars so she’ll help you with strategy and self-focus as we head into the weekend. You may have conflicting emotions, but stick to facts and you’ll know what to do. All in all a week of forward movement is there for you!
Virgo (August 23-September 21): This week has some ups and downs, mostly having to do with Mars entering your opposite sign Pisces (sector of Relationships) and energizing Jupiter in your sector of Home. This could indicate an impending problem with either emotional outbursts or a water problem of some kind. Be sure your pipes and plumbing are in good shape and if something is off, get it repaired sooner than later because of the potential of it suddenly failing in a way you won’t like (this applies to emotions as well). Other than that, Venus coming out of retrograde in your sector of Finances will ease the pain for you and help you with what you need.
Libra (September 22 – October 23): Mars moves into your sector of Work/Health on Thursday, sparking an argument with Jupiter and later Mercury in your sector of Thinking/Communication. This indicates an awful lot of communication and maybe more people knowing what’s going on than you’re comfortable with. Pull back and watch to see which way the wind is blowing, for your own best interest. Your Ruler Venus is coming out of retrograde in your sign, so that will give you a boost and clarity as we move toward the weekend. Don’t look for what’s fair, look for what’s good.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22): Venus comes out of retrograde in your sector of Endings/New Beginnings and you’re already feeling the effect of her benefits since she is in her own sign of Libra. Mars moves into your fellow water sign Pisces on Thursday, and this may spark a financial conundrum because he’ll be squared up with Jupiter who’s in your sector of Finances. It appears you’ll have to weigh the pros and cons of a situation involving money and future potential spending. You’re wise enough to not impulsively jump into anything, so hang tight and crunch the numbers.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 20): Mars moves into Pisces on Thursday, squaring up to Jupiter in your sign. This may spark some ill feelings regarding your home life or something to do with real estate. You’ll want to take your time with this situation and pay attention to details. If something appears to be unfair, address it calmly and negotiate. Don’t let anyone rain on your parade, because you are one of the signs that doesn’t do well with people telling you what to do or how to live. You like your independence and being treated with justice, like you treat others. Ask more questions rather than make statements and you’ll get farther. Above all, curb bluntness now.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): This week is in your favor in general, with a couple of interesting things thrown in; Mars moves into your financial sector on Thursday and immediately sets up an argument with Jupiter who’s in your sector of Endings/New Beginnings. This may prompt a review of your spending or a mistake that’s been made regarding a new purchase. You being the sign you are will tend to the situation with dogged determination and no messing around, so it’s likely there are no worries. Venus comes out of retrograde in your sector of Career/Ultimate Potential, and since she is in a nice alignment with Mars your skills of negotiation and strategy will be regenerated.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 20): This week holds a couple of interesting situations; Mars moves into your sector of Finances and squares up with Jupiter in your sector of Friends/Goals. At the same time, Venus comes out of retrograde in your sector of Expansion and is in a lovely alignment with Mars. This adds up to decisions being made with others that require compromise and consideration. Even if you project the final result in your mind, you’ll need to listen and accommodate others’ feedback in order to pull something off in a manner that all parties are happy with. You should be able to do that since you’re the consummate Humanitarian and like it best when your peeps are happy! Refrain from jumping to conclusions and judging.
Pisces (February 21 – March 20): Mars sails into your sign on Thursday and immediately tries to start a situation with Jupiter in your sector of career/Ultimate Potential. This energizes you in the manner of pulling back on things that drain your energy and get out of control fast and make you feel taken advantage of. The week holds some good insights and manners of conduct for you, and you have a lot of support to move ahead without limiting entanglements. Don’t forget to come up for air once in a while and look through your periscope! The current on the surface will be different to the depths. Keep dreaming, the world needs your dreams!
