Revolutionary Uranus makes a U-turn this Wednesday, turning retrograde in Aries until December 16. Deep-dive into one of your most innovative ideas, researching its potential, and strengthening your game plan. While it may take until holiday time to launch this brainchild, the behind-the-scenes work you begin this week could yield epic results. Communicator Mercury ends a three-week retrograde on Friday, however, restoring harmony to your home life. Phew!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This is so not the week to insert yourself in other people’s drama, even if you believe that you can help. Detach and let them hash it out on their own. This is more complicated that your cursory assessment reveals. With Mercury waking up from a three-week retrograde on the 19, turn your energy to new friends and networking with people who can help boost your cachet.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Geek out, Gemini, as gearhead Uranus starts a five-month backspin through your technology house. Whether you’re sharpening your social-media know-how, learning more than the mere basics of blog-building, producing online content, or mastering new software, your income will grow in direct proportion to your burgeoning skills. Mercury turns direct on the 19, finally clearing up a mysterious money situation. News about a job could come by next week.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Remix! Expressive Mercury resumes forward motion on the 19 after retrograding through Cancer since June 26. Maybe you put your foot in your mouth or sat in stoic observation, while, inside, you were bubbling over with brilliant ideas. It’s never too late to switch up your game, letting people in on the fabulosity you’ve kept under wraps. Certainly, your bold assertions may shock this week, but at the moment, that’s the best way to get people’s attention.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Playing with fire is a tempting idea but before you stick your hands in those flames, make sure you know what you’re really messing around with. Some information will be obscured this week and acting in haste could really burn you. On Friday, Mercury powers forward after a three-week nap, giving you the green light to exit (or take a long sabbatical from) a stale and emotionally draining situation. Onward!
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
It’s time to pay the piper, Virgo, which will bring you peace of mind. Spend the week clearing up IOUs and getting installment plans in place for any lingering debt. An old love could return to your life after the 17. The chemistry is as insane as it ever was, but if any sneaking around is involved, steer clear.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Your liberation front could be met with opposition this week. Question: Is there a double standard in place? If you want your freedom, you have to grant others the same right. Being possessive one minute and pushing people away the next could lead to animosity. What’s it gonna be, Libra? It’s time to choose. A brewing career crisis clears up after Friday when Mercury turns direct. Roll up your sleeves and get back to work.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Back up your words with action this week. People need to see tangible proof that you can really pull off all your grand promises. And, if you can’t? Call a summit to devise a Plan B. Better to be authentic about your limitations than to fake it until you (don’t quite) make it. PS: A pared-down plan could actually hit the jackpot.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Reminder: Fame for fame’s sake is not the end goal, Sagittarius. You want to be known for putting something memorable and high quality into the world. Over the next five months, innovative Uranus helps you deepen your knowledge and draft a tighter blueprint. On the romance front, you could kick an errant lover to the curb after the 19, replacing him or her with a real-deal romantic.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Mi casa es su casa? We thinketh not, Capricorn. With cranky Uranus spinning backward through your home sector from the 17 until mid-December, you’ll need more rules and regulations regarding your nest. Evict a slacker roomie, move to a quieter unit in your building, or set some clear ground rules with an incendiary person living under your roof. Bottom line: You need to feel at home at Chateau Capricorn. Also, scrambled signals regarding romance clear up with Mercury’s direct turn on July 19. Bring back the love!
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
Draw clear lines this week, Aquarius, lest people mistake your kindness for weakness. In fact, you may need to show a tougher face to the world altogether. Contrary to what you might fear, people won’t hate you because you are firm with them. Rather, they will appreciate knowing where your limits lie. No more walking on eggshells, wondering when you might get upset.
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Mercury wakes up from a three-week retrograde on the 19, giving you the green light to get out and about. From summer music festivals to far-flung locales avec passport, you’re ready to pack your bags and travel again. One caveat: With unpredictable Uranus backspinning through your money zone for five months, beginning July 17, you’ll have to be a budget-minded traveler. Mix in some couchsurfing or camping with those boutique hotel bookings.
