If you are ready for a little respite after a very active, Aries-heavy month, the Sun is moving out of Aries and into the domestic, luxury-craving sign of Taurus. Whatever ideas you created or relationships you established during Aries will now meet realistic situations full of money-grabbing, people-planning, and accomplishment.
These are all the perfect foundational tools you need until the Sun jumps off into mercurial communicator Gemini-when it’s ruling sign Mercury will no longer be retrograde and you can take full advantage of open lines of communication.
After around the 23rd when communicator Mercury is out of retrograde and Venus is in Aries, there will be quick resolution to problems and hopefully “peace, love, and happiness.”
Go forth and read the details on your sun sign! If you know your rising sign, read that too.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19)
When you play with fire, Aries, you are likely to get burned and you’ve lit fire to many different aspects of your life lately. Thankfully, the Sun is leaving your sign, you can cool off a little bit in practical Taurus, and rebuild the house of your psyche. Start thinking about your life ambitions, what you want to implement, and how much that will cost you. You might want to build a castle on a cloud, but Taurus will remind you to start small and work your way up.
It’s time for you to step back and simply. Figure out what is most important to you and focus on that. Doing this will keep you from making a mess of whatever project you are working on because you juggling too much. Don’t worry about getting bored from only doing one thing. As an Aries, you can creatively focus on the minutiae and even find joy from that activity. Do you remember that scene from American Psycho where the businessmen compare their business cards to see who has the most perfectly simple one? That is kind of what you need to do this week, Aries. Focus on the perfection in the simple instead of the spectacle.
Yeah, yeah career, great, but how’s my love life going, you may ask? Fabulous. You will be the center of attention if you instill the above philosophy into the way you act and in your physical presence as well. Get a chic bob haircut and try on a little black dress. Keep make-up minimal and see how many people will be wowed by your natural beauty.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20)
Taurus is never as happy all year-long as when the Sun alights its own sign, so get ready for the best month of your year! Everything thing you’ve been lazily dreaming about can come true, although you still need to utilize some actual willpower and energy in your endeavour. It just won’t be as hard as it has been int he last couple of months, especially when it comes to getting accurate communication from those who’ve been keeping you hanging.
When a Taurus gets into a situation like that, where the communication isn’t exactly to their liking, it’s usually the fault of the Taurus. Not to be harsh, but Taurus’ are very stubborn with their ideals of what is right and wrong. Likewise, when you need to express your opinions, you can often be too passive-aggressive. Try to see what happens if you are completely direct, especially with Mercury direct. If those people who keep dragging you along don’t listen, they are never going to listen and it’s time to cut your losses and move on.
Just keep your head up until about June 4 when lucky Jupiter enters Taurus for a year–the first time it’s visited n twelve years. This summer will be amazing and a lot of similar things will happen this year as they did in 1999-2000.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
The average Gemini is not the kind that carries around much baggage, but you’ve been in an emotional place lately, Gemini. Especially with Mercury retrograde and all those signs in Aries burning holes in your pretty façade. With the Sun in Taurus, you will have a chance to give yourself a break and maybe doing a little emotional spring cleaning before your birthday comes around.
One form of “cleaning” you need to do is with your friends and the people you surround yourself with. If you have any bitterness and animosity, it’s time to either put those feelings out in the open or realize that you can’t be friends with everyone (although you always try, dear Gemini). You have the tendency to try to be completely (and frustratingly) logical about situations–which can sometimes sound like accusations because most people can’t handle frank truth. Try to soften your intellectual blow, don’t alienate the overly emotional, and be as diplomatic as possible.
Venus will enter your “technology” zone, so if you are looking for a new love interest, you might actually find that person from online dating, Twitter, or an online forum of some kind. Most like that person will be just like you–passionate about the arts, culture, and volunteer work.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Dear little Cancer, you want to crawl up into your shell and not come out this week–but that’s not an option. With the Sun moving into your “networking” sector, you will feel pressured to go out and socialize, especially with people in the same industry as you. This will be a good change of pace for you, because you have been borderline (if not a full-blown) workaholic lately. This way you can do your “job” while still having fun.
As disheartening as this is for the less socially inclined, most of a person’s true career is built more on interpersonal connection and not how well they do their job. Cancer’s are good at networking because they like to make sure everyone in the room is happy–if someone can get you out of the house to actually do it.
Although you haven’t really been focused on your love life as of late (read: borderline workaholic), something has happened around you that you might not have noticed. A flirtation, a spark, an interest–whether it’s from your or directed at you and you aren’t aware of it yet. It could be that someone already in a relationship has their eye on you. If that is the case, enjoy it for what it is but don’t go any farther than harmless flirting.
Leo (July 23-Aug 22)
It’s time for Leo to pump up the jam, especially since the Sun is moving into your sector of power and success–a perfectly pleasing position for most self-respecting Leos. Now is the time to focus on your most “unattainable” goals and organize your life around accomplishing them.You are also more likely to get people to help you out for free–if you are convincing enough.
The best way to get the things you want this week is to briefly take the attention off yourself for a while and lavish the (deserving) people around you with praise. Take them to dinner, cuddle up with industry higher-ups, and talk about all your dreams in a way that makes them feel as if they’d be an important part of it. Regardless of what you say, what they are looking for is your actual physical presence.
While you are having a very successful career week, you might also have a love spark with someone who is completely foreign from your average “type.” Only your career moves and the way you handle yourself at networking events has to be “good on paper.” Future lovers? Not really. Go with what your heart (and libido) tells you.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sep 22)
Take a trip, Virgo, of both the literal and metaphorical variety. You’ll want to go out of your mental and geographic comfort zone this week to find the true answers to what you are searching for.That doesn’t mean you actually have to go somewhere. You can talk to someone via the internet in a difference country or city and get the same effect.
It also might mean that you find a job where the headquarters are in a different place and where you can work from home/ This would be ideal for the average Virgo, who is a lot more productive without any kind of distraction and with all their tools of comfort surrounding them.
Also, if you are single, you are going to need to leave the house when sassy Venus flirts with your house of seductive charms which will help attract the kind of emotional-spiritual connection you have looked for in a person.
Libra (Sep 23-Oct 22)
Libra’s are really good at dating. It’s ok to admit it, it’s not a skill that many people have, but the average Libra diva finds it easy to balance Mike, Bill, and Joe–all in one day! But with the Sun in your area intimate bonding, you might actually be interested in settling down. Scary, we know. As usual, you will probably find your next relationship potential right under your nose. In fact, they might already be a good friend or a flirtatious co-worker that you never thought a second time about. This week, you will be thinking a third, fourth, and thirtieth time.
Whatever is going on, there will definitely be a party in your bedroom which is aggravated by Venus in Aries and your relationship zone for a month. Holy libido!
As long as you’ve pushed those demanding, overly needy exes away from you during Mercury Retrograde (like we warned), we should be able to just slip into a perfectly healthy, fresh newly-minted little love honeymoon. Even if that person’s attention seems too good to be true, it’s not. Allow yourself to be worshiped. It’s fun and it won’t last forever!
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21)
Even if you’ve been in a committed relationship, you might have let love get you down lately, Scorpio. Most of this has had to do with feeling sorry for yourself and putting up emotional barriers. Well, with your Taurus in your committed relationship house for a month, all of this might soon change.
You’ll start opening yourself up to people again and the biggest news will happen on June 4 when Jupiter chills in your relationship sector for an entire year. If you aren’t in a relationship, this might be the year that you find the love of your life, especially if you are positive, take care of yourself, and realize the dynamic power of love rather than the typical Scorpio obsession.
One thing that really helps is that Venus takes a trip into your sector of self-care and you will be a lot more conscientious of your bad health habits, how that effects how you appear to the outside world, and most importantly, how that makes you feel about yourself.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21)
Get ready to get organized, Sagittarius! A lot of big things are about to happen and you need everything as organized as possible. You won’t be able to be as effective if you are trying to find or understand something. Start trying to manage your time and the space around you more effectively. While this is the kind of attention to detail that Sagittarius despises with all their heart, if you make it into a little game or tell yourself that this is necessary for the realization of your dreams, you should soon get over that.
Even if you are in a relationship, Venus shows up to your romance house until May 15 wearing her most precocious party outfit, looking for some fun. All of the things you most enjoy in life like creativity, passion, and pleasure will be making love easy, enjoyable, and almost the best part of your life right now.
Just make sure you don’t let all of this go to your head and forget to be kind to the people who aren’t in such an ideal spot as your right now. If you are kind, people will be kind back. Likewise, if you act like a jerk, you are going to get that same response back. If you want a love of epic proportions to happen, you are going to have to be the one that initiates it.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19)
It’s time to go out, get glamorous, and be wild. Some signs do that all the time, but not uptight hard-working Capricorn. Once you realize that you can have fun when you relinquish a little power (not everything has to be in your control), you will be the happiest you’ve been in years.
Stop being scared of having fun and being happy. Life might move fast, things might be frustrating, and you might have had to completely rebuild your foundation, but you are over and done with that and it’s time to go out and hippie it up.
What liberates your soul? Art, music, love? Figure out what makes you happiest as a person rather than a product. For the next month, explore yourself through whatever creative venture possible. If you are trying to find a partner-in-crime, it will be a lot easier this week because you will be more open to experimenting and exploring with fresh meat than trying to beat on the same old door with a boring ex-lover.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18)
Time to whip out the knitting, bake a cake, and cuddle with your favorite kitty. With the Sun entering Taurus in your domestic sector, independent Aquarius will all of a sudden become a goddess of the household. That doesn’t mean you should disregard your enterprising or inventive nature. You can utilize some of those “domestic” skills like cooking or crafting for a hobby-fueled business venture.
If you’ve wanted to plant some seeds, literally and figuratively, this would be the perfect time to plant a garden or to sow your fields of interpersonal relationships–especially with family. They will be calmed by your new grounded attitude, Mercury will be direct and maybe you can actually solve some of your difference, if not only agree to disagree.
If you are looking for love, you might be looking for love in all the same places. Go do something new and you might find someone who is Mr. Right Now instead of Mr. Been There Done That.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
Most Pisces don’t have a strong attachment to what goes on in their neighborhood, beyond what is happening in their own abode. But with Taurus in your community sector for a month, you might find all the things you need just outside your door. This month is the perfect time to go around asking your neighbors for a cup of sugar.
If you’ve felt like the things in your community need to change, this is the perfect week to connect with local government, start a group in your apartment building, organize a party where neighbors can come, or build a website for your neighborhood. That can also be a way for the sometimes perpetually poor artist Pisces to get a little money in the bank.
As for your relationship status, it might be a little complicated this week. While you are in a beautiful traditionary state, it might make you really consider if you can be with someone for the long-term. Even if you are best friend’s with your significant other or you have a great relationship, sometimes it’s important to be honest with yourself and really consider if you can be with that person for the rest of your life. Not everything beautiful can be held on to.
