Ground control to Major Ram. Time to touch back down to Planet Earth. With so many planets in Aries, you’ve been flying high lately. This week, the sun, Venus, and Mars all shift into Taurus, restoring your grounded groove. Pay the electric bill. Call your mother back (already). Then, start project managing that brilliant idea you dreamed up near your birthday. This is doable with a practical plan in place.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Your cosmic ruler Venus grooves into Taurus from Monday until May 8, boosting your social currency like post-iPhone Apple stock. By the weekend, the sun and go-getter Mars will also be planted in Taurus for a month and six-weeks, respectively. Although you’re in demand, a personal venture will consume most of your thoughts. Obsess, develop, promote! You might just have a goldmine on your hands.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Stick a fork in it, Gemini. A situation you’ve been struggling with is (or darn well should be) over like Don and Betty Draper. You’ll need a distraction for the mourning process, though. Indulge your fascination with all things indie. From little-known designers to yet-to-be-discovered bands (who will naturally invite you to hang out backstage with them), this treasure hunt puts you in the cabal of cool — and that status alone can comfort you through your darkest hour.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Your feverish fan base is growing like crazy, Cancer. Stop holding them at bay with your workaholic ways. Three celestial bodies leave your career-centric tenth house and move into Taurus and your team-spirited eleventh. Have you even stopped to consider how much faster you’ll reach the finish line if you turned your obsessive quest into a joint venture? Work smarter, not harder, and initiate a collab. P.S.: This opens up room in your schedule for that elusive thing called fun.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Powerlunch on the bistro’s back deck? Networking drinks at the posh rooftop bar? Oh, heck yeah. With Venus, Mars, and the sun entering your elite and ambitious tenth house this week, you snap back into mover-and-shaker mode. The next six weeks are blindingly bright for your career. In romance, save your final rose for someone whose professional creds make you swoon with equal force to the physical attraction.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Twerking with the spring breakers may be miles from a Virgo’s comfort zone, but some vacation playtime is definitely in the stars. Romantic Venus, the radiant sun, and go-getter Mars team up in your travel zone, prompting you to pull out your passport and start scheming with friends in other cities. If you can’t fly off before the end of May, at least book your ticket. Planning your holiday can be as brilliant as the trip itself.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
It’s sexy time, Libra, thanks to a mashup of the sun, Venus, and Mars in your cosmic erogenous zone for the next three weeks. But Hannah Horvath-experimental you won’t be. Reserve your charms for the rare mind-body-soul meld that satisfies you in a deep and abiding way. Already attached? Talks could turn to co-signed leases, joint checking accounts, and other more permanent forms of attachment.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Romantic high season begins Monday, as love planet Venus orbits into your partnership zone for three weeks. The sun and Mars are hot on her heels, making your urge to merge insatiable by the weekend. Is that you slinking around Neil Lane in dark lunettes, “checking out the merchandise?” Here’s a tip: Rather than hide your desires behind a veneer of cool, start letting people know that you’re actually interested! More often than not, the feeling will be mutual.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Decadence comes with a price (sigh). Planets shift gears from your hedonistic fifth house to your health-conscious sixth, getting you back on the well-being wagon. Swap those melt-off-the-bone short rib dishes for a melt-off-the-pounds workout that is both fun and challenging. You could really get into this whole green juice and kale salad thing, especially when your radiant glow is restored and your energy levels shoot to the moon.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Modesty is horribly overrated, Capricorn. With three heavenly bodies converging in your fame zone this week, it’s okay, and probably even necessary, to fan your peacock feathers a bit. Benefits will be measurable in both love and career, so check the metrics by the weekend. Color is your new keyword. Dump your go-to greige and replace with pops of coral, turquoise, and emerald green.
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
Hew the excess — and frankly, exhausting — social commitments from your calendar. The focus is on family this week, which for you, Aquarius, may include more friends than people who share your DNA. No matter. Your inner circle is starved for your attention. Brew the iced tea and blow up the air mattress. Château Aquarius is ground zero for all things social this week.
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Know thy frenemies, Pisces. Your nemesis could emerge as Ally #1 this week if you’re willing to drop your defensive posture. Why fight for the same corner of the market when joining forces can bring you both the prosperity you crave? With the sun, Mars, and Venus setting up shop in your house of dynamic duos, buddying up will spell money in the bank well into May. Think of them as kindred spirits, not competitors.
