Big planetary movers elbows each other for position. Jupiter redirects, squaring Uranus and opposing Pluto to create a “Grand Cross”. Any grandiose unrealistic dream is brought back down to earth with a dull thud this week. Don’t stop dreaming but keep all dreams from becoming dull thuds.
(Bruce WIllis has Jupiter in Cancer)

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
You think that you have planted some amazingly fertile ideas at work but don’t be surprised at all of the landmines that seem to pop up. Aries may retreat and hang around the house, hoping the political storm will pass. Start planning a personal press tour to recoup momentum but know that total escape is not possible. So buck up, grab your get up and go and go do.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans find that even their vocal best can’t halt the stream of backroom scuttle that dogs their every step this week. Your words can be taken out of context and wind up biting you on the butt. Carefully weigh your words with certain you-know-whos. This is a great time however to collect your great ideas for future use. Use your sharp mind to poke the zeitgeist later.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Money issues can bubble to the surface during the week. Geminis who carefully count their pennies not only have trouble holding on to their dough, they also contribute to the splurgy wastefulness of it. But sometimes to it goes to a good purpose: Wild sexy fun is in the making! How many doughy lumps will you knead before you get a yeasty rise? Let’s see.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers try to push the boundaries of their various relationships this week. But they can all push back, especially if your high expectations don’t match your needy ego. Not everybody wants what you want. Not everyone is prepared to compromise either. So take a break. Sometimes you win by appearing to lose. Remember I said “appearing”....
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Stray thoughts and “premonitions” buzz about like so many gnats. Swat them back while the cosmos stings. Leos can become obsessed by details and trivialities that can lead to regrettable actions, if you allow. Before you get poked in the snoot with an errant action, stop, think and turn your attention to something other than the tiny dust bunnies of life.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
When is too much, too too much? Possibly this week. Virgos will have a tendency to go over the top in their various social and fun pursuits. This is usually not a bad thing but now it can cause rifts among friend or your various social groups. Maybe its because you open up your wallet to whoever wants a taste. Who gets a piece of you? Ah, who indeed!
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Expect a spate of jealousy among partners this week. Not only do you think that you are on top of your game, you also tend to take more obvious risks. Try not to take unnecessary risks, Libra. Why not sit back, reassess the pitfalls of certain actions and quietly, carefully plot your revolution. You are a legend in your own mind. What becomes a legend most?
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
There is an advantage to being outspoken, forthright and honest, Scorpio. But this week it is to your advantage to look and listen without commentary. Try to just sit back and take notes. By the time this week’s knotty issues untie, you will be in a prime position to take a stand... depending, of course, on what position you tend to favor. Ahem.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
You can find yourself in the epicenter of the party hubbub this week. Everyone vies for your limited amount of attention and affection. Sadly, not all will get it. This means that there will be a few souls with their noses out of joint. Drama! Jealousy! Intrigue! Yikes! What is it about Sagittarians that make them so appealing now? Beats me. Use it or lose it.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns will learn how to balance their personal needs with those of relationships this week. You may be a shooting star in other areas of life, but among partners and in certain one-to-one relationships, you may be creating a load of cosmic debris. How quickly will it all fall to earth under the weight of your own gravity? It depends upon your tail wind.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
As much as you may try to escape, forces pull you back to the job. Of course even while you are tied to the desk, that will not prevent your imagination from kicking in and enjoying a dreamy faraway meditation. Dream on Aquarius. There will be a time soon when you can enjoy some downtime in a gorgeous, relaxing locale. Or is it a local...?
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Are you a creative genius or just another one of those posing wannabees? Let’s guess as the week unfolds. Pisces seem more than a little over confident and are not shy about sharing their assorted gems with others, especially close companions and compadres. Pushy, pushy. Can you take as much as you can give? Hmm let’s just see....
