[LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Many who are upset will be seeking your solace and gift of listening. Do not overload your schedule because even you, the peaceful warrior, may feel short tempered. Drive carefully. Vehicles, tools, or other things may suddenly break. Concentrate on staying with your center. Your intuition is uncommonly accurate now.

[SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) The sun returns “home” to your sign this week. You likely will find it to be energizing. Now is the time to focus on new plans for this next year of your life. Take a fresh look at where you want to direct your energy. It is appropriate that your attention be directed toward yourself right now. But while you are doing this, stay aware of the needs of those around you as well.

[SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You are struggling to gain a foothold on the new identity. Let the past go. Keep only what and who is truly important to you. Between now and the year 2018, the main trajectory is to blend what is at your core and unchangeable with what is nontraditional for you. This will be a test of confidence and creativity, but it is timely now.

[CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Once again, this week may bring sudden developments concerning your home, your property, or your family. For a time things will feel out of control and maybe difficult to understand on any rational level. This struggle could be internal and of the ego. Take time enough to discern the truth before speaking or deciding impulsively.

[AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) One side of you is devoted to maintaining the status quo and following the rules. Another side of you is the rebel deluxe, the one who always colors outside the lines. You probably feel much more comfortable in one mode or the other. Whichever way is your norm, you now encounter your opposite. Stay absolutely true to yourself in the midst of this storm.

[PISCES (February 19 to March 20) There is news to cheer over concerning your Significant Other (business or personal). The relationship is taking a turn for the better. Those with clientele will be super busy accommodating an increased public. You feel generous, almost to a fault. Don’t give away the store.

[ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a really challenging time for you and many others as well. You may be presented with a relationship issue that will cause you to distance from a negative bond. Perhaps it is time. But if this is someone you truly don’t want to lose, then watch your temper and attempt to talk through problems.

[TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This should be a wonderful week for love life and creative activities. Venus, your avatar planet, is favoring Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto. Honor the artist in yourself. Broaden your definition of “artist” beyond painting. Activities involving your children go well. Aspects favor travel, education and love life.

[GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Challenging news comes your way concerning children, a love affair, or investments. It may be sudden so brace yourself. Stay calm so that you can have your wits about you to think issues through. Rise above the appearance of things so you can envision a larger picture. You need to access your ability to think outside the box.

[CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Changes in your work or daily life are requiring that you bend to accommodate for new technology. You were getting things accomplished just fine, thank you very much. This one just won’t go away. It is probably very good for you in the long run. However, just right now the learning curve interferes with your daily output.

[LEO (July 23 to August 22) You may be tending to your own or another’s healing on either the physical or emotional level. It is even possible there is a funeral you must attend where you are uncomfortable with other attendees. This is not the time to bring up old hurts and angers. The Other will not be amenable to discussion right now. Find some way to let it go. There will be other opportunities.

[VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You are a giant magnet this week. You will attract supporters wherever you go. People will fall all over themselves for you. Try it. Dress well and move around in the public eye for an ego boost. On another level, there are concerns about the financial picture. Leave your credit cards at home. “Neither a borrower or a lender be”…
