Mercury squaring Neptune in Pisces while entering Gemini inflates wonderfully imaginative notions. Jupiter entering Taurus could ground them and find profitable applications. Jupiter in Taurus for the next year “should” be good for the economy. It will be good for bankers at least.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Your recent lucky spree will now focus more on financial fortune. How? Mad dreams and inspirations offer some clues. Talk out your crazy notions with your friends and find a way to bring them to the bank!
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Recent hard times are about to turn around. How to cash in on your good fortune? You can turn your friends’ craziest suggestions into practical ideas. Inspirations now can point the way to future fulfillment of your dreams.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): It’s time to get creative. You have some big challenges coming up in the next year. Your intuition is now unusually sharp to see how you can turn those into opportunities. Spiritual guidance can be especially helpful now.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Dreams can lure you too easily into never-never-lands of fantasy and escape. Sharing some of those phantasmagorical reveries with friends can help you find some practical outlet for them.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Remember the difference between dreams and goals! Friends encouraging you to chase after your dreams offer some helpful inspiration, but a little of that can go a long way. Don’t let them distract you from practical, achievable aims.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Your brain is buzzing with schemes for success. Your partner is likely to encourage all your wildest ideas. Sweet, but wrong! You need a leveler head with a bit of critical distance to give you pragmatic advice.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Expansive, fortunate Jupiter is starting a year in your house of sex and other profound challenges. The deeper you go the greater the rewards. Don’t be shy on either count. Neither is without risks, but Jupiter is good to have on your side!
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): You and your sweetie are due for a bit of frolic. That could open up some questions and confusion. Keeping communications clear and aboveboard could be a small challenge. The rewards are well worth it.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Job opportunities are opening up for you. Have faith in yourself. If familial encouragement is unrealistic, don’t worry about letting them down by “settling” for what’s in the real world. If you’re happy, they will be too.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Usually better focused, you’re way too open to distractions and thus, accidents. Mediation, poetry, music and/or art will help you get back into balance. Take classes in any of those fields. You need new ways of seeing the world.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Financial investments are especially risky now. If something feels just right it could win big, but don’t put in any more than you can afford to lose. First ask yourself, what would mother advise? Then ask, is her advice reliable?
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Sing out, Louise! Whatever you have to offer, make it heard and known! Your family will back you up in your endeavors, but you really need to be very clear on who you are and what it is you’ve got.
