Retrograde Jupiter in Virgo runs amok and trines Mercury, Venus and Pluto. We feel our world shake, shimmy and gyrate. Hold on tight, friends. It will be difficult to detect when too much is too much. But what a way to go!

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
The powers-that-be will tell you that hard work will bring its own rewards. But they may only offering meager crumbs - just enough to keep you toiling hard with your nose planted on the grindstone. Aries may feel more motivated at work but be sure that there is a viable and valuable payoff. You are not interested in volunteering your talents. Nor should you!
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans are full of over-the-top, uncontrollable fun. Your goody bag seems to have no bottom and you are apt to take things to the extreme. Enjoy life while you can and try to go global in your jolly mirth. Maybe it is time to travel and expand your horizons. There is a world shaking surprise waiting for you out there... somewhere. Gird yourself and find it.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
This may be a good time to concentrate on home based projects and family issues. Geminis not only want to prepare their surroundings for an entertaining marathon, they might also become more domesticated in general. Entertain more at home. Also consider reconnecting with lost relatives. Who knows what valuable stuff you can get out of them? All in moderation.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Although you are known for being more on the quiet and reticent side, this week you are full of opinion and noise. This is not a bad thing, Cancer. Anything you say can become more forceful and compelling. But moderate your tone and don’t just ask for the sake of asking. Know what you want and what you most value. Then go, go, go for it.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos never think that they are paid what they are worth. Now it is beginning to take its toll. You may begin to chaff at the thought of being underpaid and under appreciated. But this may not be the reality. Before you try to upend the corporation, take a breath and maybe a long lunch. Work smart rather than hard. The rewards and recognitions will come... eventually.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Not only do you have more than your usual share of charisma, you also know how to use it to get exactly what you want from others. Virgos think that they need to get out of their usual routines and create new social connections. The people you meet now can change the course of your life for the next few months. Be sure that you are ready for that change.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
If your intuition is talking to you, listen carefully. Libras think they know what is going on behind the scenes but it may b e less dramatic than you think. Interactions with family can go well and you may be able to build or rebuild bridges. You can also make positive changes around the house whether you redecorate, renovate or move. Or maybe a combination?
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Open up the lines of communications with friends. There may be many things that you want to say but couldn’t. You now not only have the oomph, you also have the opportunity. Who knows how these relationships will change? Sprinkle your comments with sugar and see how sweet some folks become. Salt gets them sassy. Vinegar gets you nowhere, Scorpio.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Sagittarians are all gung ho in their career now. But how long will that last? Let’s see. You are full of energy and ambition. So be sure to do your best work and put out your best efforts in the hope that the senior staff will sit up and take notice. If played correctly, the payoff could be substantial. Just don’t spend it all in one place or on one particular staff member.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns feel the need to get out and explore their world now. Not only do you have some great ideas for adventure, you are able to capitalize on your charm and good looks among the exotic strangers you meet on your journey. Go for the gold or the glory. Even better, go for the first class upgrade and the unlimited champagne. But plan carefully.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Sometimes actions create unexpected reactions. Prepare for the ground to swell and shake. You are catapulted into new directions. Aquarians are open to the possibilities but need to see what is possible and what is pipe dream. Get out of your comfort zone and take a calculated risk. You discover virgin territories to plant your flag. Hmm anyone we know...?
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces want to reach out and touch someone ... really anyone. You are not merely interested in the concept of relationships and connection. You are driven to build all types of relationships from love to work to platonic. See which ones are worth the effort. Will you get these disparate groups confused? Life will certainly be more interesting if you mix and match!
