Just as the sun spends a month of every year in each sign, Jupiter, in his 12-year cycle, spends about a full year in each sign. Fresh into Capricorn, he will help to build up organizations and bureaucracy. The coming year will be a big one for the mature look, leather, and bondage. This week’s horoscope will be valid through the year!
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Socialize with important folks. Those doors are wide open to you. Looking respectable and conservative will help you get ahead. Even in the most buttoned-up crowd, people know the power of appearance.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): If you have unfinished school business or want to go for a degree, sign up for those classes! Otherwise, delve into ancient philosophies or go traveling to historical, even archaeological places on your own initiative.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): Not that you need the help, but your sexual magnetism is charging up. Trying to look young will not help. Maturity, experience, and authority all work in your favor. If you’ve been wanting to explore leather and kink, this is the time for it!
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Look toward formalizing an existing relationship or refining your criteria for one. Not only can you afford to be picky, but holding out for what you really want in your partnership will help you get it.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Any skin growths or bone or joint inflammations should be checked quickly, but in general your health should be good. Luck at work should improve. Look forward to promotions and be willing to take a risk to get them.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Some people think creativity is about mad inspiration. You know it’s about hard work. Your hard work can pay off big – probably more in terms of personal growth, but there could be money, too!
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Researching your roots, taking time with older relatives, or spending time with community elders will give you a better sense not only of your background and foundations, but also of where you’re going.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Your mind needs stimulation and novelty, and you’re a bit more loquacious than usual. Be careful with that! Developing new skills, perhaps learning a new language, will open doors and help keep you focused and out of trouble.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): This should be a very lucky year for you for money – investments, lottery tickets, new businesses – but, it’s also “easy come, easy go.” A conservative attitude and long-range perspective will prove most profitable. Consult an astrologer with your full birth chart before taking any big chances!
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): You’re in for a spell of good luck. Just be yourself and you’re sure to get ahead. There’s no point in being shy. Go for any opportunity that feels right. Further education and travel can serve you especially well.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Blessings will come to you in disguise. If life gets hard, the troubles can easily be made into a springboard to tremendous luck. Volunteer work with venerable charities will prove advantageous in the meantime.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Social opportunities will open up for you more easily if you “work the system” and follow conservative, conventional methods. Hobnob with “important people,” but what’s “important” is subjective. Of course, those who don’t look or think like you can be important, too!
