In his 12-year orbit, Jupiter spends about a year in each sign. Now he’s heading into his own home sign of Sagittarius. Ideally, this releases a year of more open-mindedness, philosophy, and good humor. God knows, we could use all of that these days! Opportunities come to those who speak up. Sing out, Louise!

ARIES (March 20 – April 19): All those deep, dark, erotic fantasies that have been tickling your imagination are ready to come to light. Reveal your most secret passion to someone who can help you make your dreams come true. It will be even better than you imagine!

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Your luck in relationships is improving. This could be your time to meet Mr./Ms. Right or be free of Mr./Ms. Wrong. Speak your mind about problems you’re having, and solve longstanding issues. In any case, speak your mind boldly!

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Your health should be improving generally, but be careful of your liver. Exercise outside (as weather permits). Hiking and biking are especially good. Look for opportunities at work. A new job or promotion is within reach.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Your run of luck is improving, but see your personal astrologer about when to gamble or invest. Develop any creative skills you have, and think about how they could help you make some money down the road.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): This could be the time to find the home you want or to make improvements that your current squat has needed. Speak up about family problems and clear the air. You might shock them, but they’ll get over it!

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): You could get an early start on your holiday cards, or otherwise clear up and catch up on letters and communications. Take time out to touch base with siblings, and mend fences or just hang out with neighbors.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Money could come flying at you, but be smart or you’ll send it flying away just as fast. Invest in education. The stars recommend classes in financial management, but anything from Amharic to zoology could be valuable.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): You’re approaching a climactic end of a very lucky year (when the end comes depends on your birthday). At that time, you’ll get lucky with money, so no complaints! For now, be bold and take the risks you’ve always wanted to dare.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Whatever blessings you have in your life may seem to be a bit too well disguised. Difficulties that are testing you now will lead to huge rewards soon. Spiritual retreat and self-examination help in the meantime.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Consider what you really want in the long run and embrace social opportunities. Make new friends, especially those who have influence and helpful connections. If you honestly like each other, it’s not “climbing.”

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Indulge in shameless self-promotion. (Like, what’s to be ashamed of?) You will rarely have a better opportunity to build your reputation and get ahead in this world. Make the most of it!

PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Take a trip, go back to school, or do anything to open new horizons. A new class – especially in philosophy, a foreign language, or any aspect of a foreign culture, from calligraphy to cooking – will enrich your life.
