A very different week now! This week may feel like that old game of Pick Up Sticks after a cosmic blast, so we’ll be busy playing catch up and rearranging stuff to get our bearings again. That won’t be all that difficult as long as we really focus on balance and gratitude; the Sun’s difficult alignment to Saturn is bothersome as this dynamic appears irresolvable. Helping is the Sun’s simultaneous lovely alignment to Pluto, which has a transformational effect and has the capacity to take us to a higher level if we’re open to it.
Retrograde Mercury’s havoc in Gemini will switch to Taurus on Saturday, where the retrograde will continue until its termination next month. Money issues may arise so keep an eye on those debit and credit card balances! Remember, a retrograde Mercury is best used for research, review, reassessment and regrouping, not for trying to forge ahead.
Also on Saturday, the Sun enters Gemini and our last month of astrological Spring. This tends to lighten the mood and put a spring in the step as the signs of summer approach.
Keep looking up, stay healthy, and…
Keep looking after each other!

Aries (March 21- April 19): Things are going well in general but don’t forget about retrograde Mercury and double check everything before proceeding. This also isn’t a time to make a major purchase or decision. Other than that, it’s a go! The Sun is in a difficult angle to Saturn right now so this may cause some disappointments as well as financial slowdowns but with Jupiter in your sign being in a lovely alignment to Mercury and the Sun, you’ll recover quickly. This isn’t such a major week of changes as last week was other than Saturday when Mercury backs into Taurus and the Sun enters Gemini. Retrograde Mercury in Taurus will be a caution to you to be careful with spending.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): This week isn’t as earthshaking as last week was but it is still potent with powerful stuff. The Sun in your sign is in a difficult angle to Saturn in Aquarius and at the same time in a lovely alignment to Pluto in your companion earth sign Capricorn. This indicates that it’s better for you to keep your focus on things that expand your horizons in some manner. New ideas, new approaches, new attitudes. In other matters, retrograde Mercury demands review and reassessment. On Saturday, Mercury backs into your sign again and the Sun enters Gemini. The weekend will remind you to look after yourself and reconsider a few things.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): This week will contain some changes for you toward the end of the week. At the moment, the Sun is in a difficult angle to Saturn in Aquarius but at the same time it is in a lovely alignment to Pluto in Capricorn and Mercury is retrograde in your sign. In plain English, things are humming right along with stupid little things going wrong that really annoy you this week. Saturday changes things when the Sun moves into your sign and Mercury backs into Taurus, shifting your focus to things that need to be revisited and reassessed. This isn’t a time to start something new; rather, it’s a great time to research a new idea or project.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): This week doesn’t contain the energy and stresses of last week but there is still plenty of power there; the Sun in Taurus is in a difficult alignment to Saturn in Aquarius, so while there may be conflict in your sectors of Friends/Goals and Partnership (people letting you down or restricting you in some way), the Sun is also in a lovely alignment to Pluto in Capricorn (your sector of Relationships). Your nearest and dearest are there to turn to for support and strength. Changes come on Saturday when the Sun moves into Gemini and retrograde Mercury backs into Taurus; this encourages you to reassess recent encounters and regroup.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): The Sun in Taurus is in a difficult alignment to Saturn in Aquarius at the moment so your sectors of Social Life/Career and Relationships may be strained, but at the same time the Sun is in a lovely alignment to Pluto in Capricorn in your sector of Work/Health so it could be that your focus is better placed on health matters now or matters at hand in the work place that need to be sorted. Retrograde Mercury will back into Taurus on Saturday while the Sun will move into Gemini. This will wreak a bit of havoc for you, so be sure you double check everything and leave nothing to chance or assume that something in someone else’s hands is safe The Sun in Gemini will bring a breath of fresh air in the way of time spent with friends.
Virgo (August 23 – September 21): The Sun in your fellow earth sign Taurus is in a difficult alignment to Saturn in Aquarius at the moment so you may be feeling tension in your sector of Expansion in the form of restriction of movement or progress. Fortunately, this is not a long lasting transit and will resolve in a few days. Of more concern is retrograde Mercury backing into Taurus on Saturday, bringing stalled communication, glitches and general frustration. Helping you is Mercury’s fine placement to Jupiter, which brings you the tools to deal with it. On Saturday the Sun moves into Gemini, your sector of Career/Social Life and this brings you more activity around others; mask up and enjoy!
Libra (September 22 – October 23): This week sees changes at the end of the week; at the moment the Sun in Taurus is in conflict with Saturn in Aquarius and may bring tension to your sector of Partnership; someone may be doggedly hanging on to an idea that doesn’t work for you. This isn’t insurmountable due to the Sun’s simultaneous good alignment to Pluto in Capricorn (your sector of Home). Home is where you are able to process what’s going on and use retrograde Mercury’s demands to reassess, review and regroup. Speaking of which, Mercury backs into Taurus on Saturday so be ready to have to work harder to communicate. The Sun moves into Gemini on Saturday, being a saving grace for you in your sector of Expansion/Travel.
Scorpio (October 24- November 22): This week holds less forward movement than last week but if you launched last week, you should be set. The Sun in Taurus is in a difficult alignment to Saturn in Aquarius still, bringing tension to home and spousal relations, but at the same time the Sun is in a lovely alignment to Pluto in Capricorn so it looks like solid communication and looking at the big picture is the key to getting past the difficulties. Saturday brings changes; retrograde Mercury moves into Taurus and gives you a chance to review and reassess your relationships and the Sun enters Gemini, breathing fresh air into your sector of Partnership. It’s looking good, in general!
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 20): This week sees the Sun in Taurus in a difficult alignment to Saturn in Aquarius; your sector of Health/Work will see some tension, so be sure to take good care of yourself now. Retrograde Mercury will be moving into that sector on Saturday and you will have the opportunity to do some reassessing, revising and reviewing as well as research. It will be a good time to turn over a new leaf. The Sun is also in a lovely alignment to Pluto in Capricorn (your sector of Finances/Resources) so this should be a time of recovering money. Saturday will also see the Sun moving into Gemini, bringing fresh air to your sector of Relationships.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): The Sun in Taurus is in a lovely alignment to Pluto in your sign, so you should be seeing transformative effects in your sector of Creative Expression/Children now. This is a short-lived but powerful transit. At the same time, the Sun is in a difficult alignment to Saturn in Aquarius, so be careful with money now as you may have an emergency expense. There are several nice alignments working on your behalf this week offsetting retrograde Mercury but caution is still advised in terms of retrograde protocol. On Saturday, Mercury backs into Taurus and the Sun moves into Gemini, bringing a breath of fresh air to your sector of Partnership.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 20): The Sun in Taurus is in a difficult alignment to Saturn in your sign at the moment but this will be ending this week. There may be tension at home, but at the same time the Sun is in a lovely alignment to Pluto in Capricorn so knowledge and tools from the past help now. This week looks pretty smooth in general in spite of retrograde Mercury; Mercury will back into Taurus (your sector of Home) on Saturday and the Sun will enter Gemini the same day. As long as you hold your ground and be consistent, things should be fine but you won’t be able to count on others to do the same. The Sun going into your sector of Creative Expression will help you deal with the tensions by expanding your coping skills and helping you assess how big a deal the issues really are in the scheme of things.
Pisces (February 21 – March 20): This week sees the Sun and Saturn in conflict in your sectors of Thinking/Communication and Endings/New Beginnings. If you’re trying to start or finish something, this is the culprit. Fortunately, this is a fast transit only lasting this week so hang on. At the same time, The Sun is in a lovely alignment to Pluto in Capricorn, so your friends will play an important role in helping you transform your attitude. Saturday sees changes as retrograde Mercury backs into Taurus (your sector of Thinking/Communication) and the Sun enters Gemini (your sector of Home). This indicates that you’ll be challenged in your ideals and values you’ve long held dear, but by withdrawal to your crib you’ll be able to recharge and reassess and regroup.
