This week moves much like last week did, but the weekend holds changes due to Mars ending his tour of Sagittarius and moving into Capricorn, joining the Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto stellium (three or more planets occupying the same sign). His energy will add some oomph next week, but this week will be for reflection, backtracking, analyzing, figuring things out, finding a way to move forward and throwing off icky thoughts.
We just witnessed a spectacular Full Moon (Supermoon) in Leo and now the Moon is waning; this contributes to the more laid-back energy of the week.
This being the Week of Love, it’s good to remind ourselves that as silly as Valentine’s Day may be to many, it is a tradition and a fun day if one knows how to keep it simple and dodge the commercialism of it all. Better yet, it isn’t only a day for lovers, it’s a day for Lovers! Let us celebrate love of all forms, friendships of all forms and find ways to appreciate each other. I always find a way to drop some love off to my single friends because it’s just fun and ever so appreciated. If this sounds good to you, pick your target and go!
Mercury is edging close to Neptune in Pisces and Pisces is the greatest lover of all, being the consummate lover of humanity. This amplifies this special week and brings us to a broader perspective of what love is…love is holding close, love is letting go. Love is saving a life, love is letting something or someone die. Love is the easiest and hardest thing. Love lifts and destroys, depending on the way we love. Love is full of mystery and a myriad of lessons, trial and error, grace and clumsiness, laughter and tears. Love is a state of being, not an emotion. It truly is a power. To strive for unconditional love is to set oneself up for failure because there will always be that one condition we cannot fulfill. Better to just love and sometimes love from a distance or love with detachment rather than try to use the inappropriate frequency of love for a certain situation. It’s truly about tuning in and gauging. It’s about caring, not just about the other but also about ourselves.
I hope you all have a LOVEly week and enjoy surprises received or given. Make it fun and whimsical, bring a smile and let your heart beam.
Keep looking after each other!

Aries (March 21- April 19): Your week starts out well, so take advantage of the first few days in order to make up for the last few days when your Ruler Mars leaves friendly Sagittarius and enters stern Capricorn where he’s not exactly happy. He will form a trine with mighty Uranus in Taurus (your sector of Finances) though, and this could create a windfall for you in the form of a tax refund you weren’t expecting or some such government compensation. See? Not so bad. The bugaboo for you will be Venus in your sign forming a wide square with Jupiter at the weekend which will fully form next week. You’ll see it coming and receive advance warning as to how it will manifest. Don’t spend that windfall too fast, there may be a stupid repair needed that will take the money away. Don’t you hate that??
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Mars moves into Capricorn this week and forms a nice alignment with Uranus in your sign. This makes for energetic and unexpected events of a pleasing nature, so get ready for some happies and jollies! Being one that enjoys good company, beauty and food, you are sure to have access to all now as we turn our attention to spring and the changing weather indicating that it’s right around the corner. Your Ruler Venus in your sector of Endings/New Beginnings approaches a square with Jupiter this weekend and it will be exact next week; this indicates conflict with higher ups in some area that can very well see you walking away from a situation that displeases you greatly. You do not compromise beyond a point, and if you have been pushed, you’ll walk. Fortunately, there is something else waiting for you anyway.
Gemini (May 21- June 20): Your Ruler Mercury is coming up to conjoin Neptune in Pisces, making you more emotional than usual. You may be taking everything personally now, but this transit will pass fairly quickly; hopefully you won’t say something you’ll regret later under the pressure of it. In better news, Mars enters Capricorn and forms a trine with Uranus in Taurus and this helps ground you and see things for what they really are (hence helps you hold your tongue in the heat of the moment). You’ll be able to calm down more quickly and stream your thoughts in a more linear fashion rather than having them going all over the place. Finally, powerful Venus in your sector of Friends/Goals is gearing up to square Mars in your sector of Shared Assets…be careful in the days to come!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Mercury is right up against Neptune in your companion water sign Pisces, so listen to yourself and enjoy the calmness this conjunction brings you. Mars moves into your opposite sign Capricorn this week and immediately receives harmonious signals from mighty Uranus in sturdy, steady Taurus. This combo brings you support from your closest people and the feeling of comfort and safety that helps you function better in a world that seems to be flying apart at the seams. You’ll want to do some planning for your spring garden now or begin to surround yourself with colors that lift your spirits and remind you of renewal, for that is what is at hand. Open yourself to the love that surrounds you and bask in it.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): You just had your Full Moon of the year and are sitting pretty! Venus in Aries continues to serve you well this week, so take advantage of that because next week she will form a square with Mars and that’s never any fun. Use this week to take preventive measures! Mars joins Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn this week and immediately aligns beautifully with Uranus in Taurus. Your axis of houses 10 and 6 move into harmony, bringing your sense of belonging in your line of work into reality by either gaining a new job or shifting perspective where you are. Your health is also bolstered by this alignment and you may find a solution to a nagging problem during this time if you address it now and proactively. If your provider is being lazy, find another one. Don’t suffer needlessly! This week is packed with potential, so milk it for all it’s worth!
Virgo (August 23 – September 21): Mars moves into Capricorn (joining Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto), setting up a lovely alignment to Uranus in Taurus. Along with your sun, we have a Grand Trine in earth signs and this bodes well for you, especially if you were born during the last week of August. Thing suddenly fall into place as if by magic and you find the reliable people you need to get the job done well. Your Ruler Mercury is conjunct Neptune in your opposite sign Pisces too, and this brings depth to your significant relationships in the form of communication of epic proportions covering a plethora of subjects. Looks like you’re having some merry romps through the universe! This is a good week for you that you’ll look back on fondly for some time to come.
Libra (September 22 – October 23): This week sees Mars moving into Capricorn (joining Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto) and immediately receiving harmonious signals from mighty Uranus. This sets up an energetic practical bent in you that, esoteric though it may be, will have you focused and steady rather than all over the place. The effect may see you fluttering about then suddenly landing on something and taking up the yoke and plowing a straight and true path with no deviation. Take advantage of it! The Sun in Aquarius also helps you focus as this is your companion air sign; Aquarius is also focused as it is a Fixed sign that focuses on finishing things. This is helpful for you, the Initiator (then you yell “Squirrel!”). Make it all good!
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22): Mars moves into Capricorn and joins your Ruler Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn. He immediately receives good vibes from Uranus in Taurus, your opposite sign. Your significant relationships bear a lot of weight now in your decision making, and you and your partner may be in the process of making a major decision due to sudden developments (or this could be soon to come). Nothing will happen fast as you consider deeply before you do anything and there is no reason to rush even though Mars is an impatient planet. You’re perfectly capable of imposing patience. Mercury and Neptune are conjunct in Pisces now and this soothes your nerves and helps you broaden your vision, affording you the discovery of more options than usual. All in all, a good week for you!
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 20): Strides are yours to be made this week! Mars moves into your sector of Finances and immediately receives good vibes from mighty Neptune in Taurus (your sector of Work, Health). This has the potential to bring you new avenues of revenue if you’ve been searching, and likely through unexpected discoveries. If you miss one target, you’ll hit the bullseye on another, so search for that arrow even if you think you’ve missed! Mercury is conjunct Neptune in your sector of Home and this gives you the desire to burrow and redo the crib in a manner that reflects your mood and fantasy. Your imagination runs high so ditch being a grownup and go for it! Venus in your sector of Creative Expression is still serving you well this week so take advantage of her because she will square up with Mars next week. Take preventive measures this week and stick to your plan to avert icky things.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): Mars joins Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in your sign and receives the steady Taurus vibes from Uranus right away. You’ve become used to this by now. You have another spike of steady energy to move forward, and explore options beyond your current experiences that pop up from the most unexpected places. Venus in your sector of Home brings company that delights you, likely females since Venus indicates sisters, aunts and other prominent females. Mercury is conjunct Neptune in Pisces now in your sector of Thinking/Communication so you’re very introspective and reflective now. Do try not to buy into conspiracy theories. Uranus in Taurus will help you stick to provable facts rather than conjecture, helping you keep the ground under your feet. You just do better that way.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 20): Mars sails into Capricorn this week, joining Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto and enhancing that stellium that’s been lasting forever. Your Ruler Uranus in Taurus (your sector of Home) sends signals to Mars right away and this is good for you, because you will be able to focus on finishing things up that need to be finished and put away. Some of the stuff you have to do is stuff you hate and you’ll do anything but that stuff most times. This week you’ll have the focus to get it done once and for all, making way for the Day of Love and all the fun stuff that goes with it if you’re attached. Mercury is conjunct Neptune in your sector of Finances now and this could muddy the waters in terms of what money goes where, so hopefully you have a good financial advisor to help you with that; don’t try to do your own taxes this year!
Pisces (February 21 – March 20): Mercury is conjoin your Ruler Neptune in your sign and you’re downright self-absorbed right now. This may make you unavailable to others, but it’s a fast transit and you need some space since you’re often the wailing wall for others, especially during these trying times when nothing seems to make any sense at all. Mars joins Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune in Capricorn, bolstering that stellium and immediately receiving signals from Uranus in Taurus (your sector of Thinking/Communication). This means you want practical, solid and meaningful conversations, not flights of fancy or conspiracy theories or negativity and you’re defending your mental space. Good for you! You are a humanitarian and right now you are your own cause so burrow away with a nice warm drink and recharge.
