Beyond that hopeless crush (or near fatal attraction), what are your long-term goals with love? Romantic Venus tours your tenth house of success and future planning for four months, making you far more serious about commitments. Career-wise, you’re being invited to make money doing something creative. Let your artsy side lead the way to prosperity.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Are you overly dependent on someone in your life? This person may be too busy or distracted to lend you an ear, set of hands, or shoulder to lean on this week. Instead of spinning out, seize the opportunity to make new contacts. Having an abundance of supporters leaves you feeling far more safe and secure in the world.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Me+you=portmanteau. Super-couple dreams are spinning through your head. With Venus in prestigious Capricorn and your eighth house of lasting love, these visions could manifest between now and March 5. If they don’t play out romantically, this pairing could show up professionally. Be selective about who you invite into your life. Only the best will do.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
It’s fine to stretch — and you certainly have since expansive, adventurous Jupiter entered your sign this past June 26 — but you don’t want to snap. On the seventh, Jupiter turns retrograde for four months, urging you to press pause on your world-domination quest. Go back and do the checks and balances. Make sure everything you’re building is being done with integrity. And, if you’ve stepped on anyone’s Choos, apologize and make amends.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Reform your own approach to health care, Leo. With vital Jupiter spinning backward for four months, you’ll need to take better care of your bod. Reducing stress is step number one, then refuel with healthy food and regular exercise. Your radiant glow attracts many — single Leos could meet a mate in the free-weights room. Who needs a spot?
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
A legendary love affair could be in the stars for you as Venus nestles down in your romance house for an extra-long, four-month stay. This will also be a creative renaissance. Fall in love with your personal passions, and you’ll be simply irresistible. You’re ready to network, too, but return to a group from your past and see if there’s more gold to mine within that familiar crew.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Slow and steady wins the race. Though you’d love to become an overnight mogul, you have to follow due process — at least for the next four months while expansive Jupiter is retrograde in your career house. Yes, Jupiter is still your lucky star — even while retrograde — but there’s no room for rushing or careless gambles now. Take calculated risks and work from a plan.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
This week, the intellectual connection trumps all others. A meeting of the minds could bring the spark of a deeper attraction, so attend events that call forth the erudite in you: lectures, book signings, discussion groups. Geeks are hot, Scorpio! On Thursday, jet-setting Jupiter turns retrograde in your ninth house of travel until March 7. Plan a trip to a place that holds special meaning for you. This could turn into a spiritual pilgrimage.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Don’t undervalue your gifts, Archer. Just because something comes naturally to you doesn’t mean you should give it away for free. Repairing trust in a relationship will be a grand theme in your life between now and March. Although you want to believe the best in people (and yourself), this process will take time. Don’t rush it or you could shortchange the other person’s growth, and your own.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Hello, gorgeous. Radiant, resplendent Venus tours Capricorn from Tuesday till March 5 — a rare, four-month stay! Translation: you are the zodiac’s It Girl (or Guy) now, and people will bask in your glow. You can afford to be picky now and might prefer your independence to being tied down. If you’re in a relationship, you’ll need a little more autonomy to pursue your personal passions, especially the creative ones.
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
Clean up your act! Have you strayed from your core values, Aquarius? As the 12-steppers say, you’re only as sick as your secrets. As much as you’d rather not fess up, relationships and friendships can only thrive in truth. Better people should hear the tale from you rather than find out on their own. Your psychic sensors are strong now, too. Do you suspect someone is giving you half the story? Investigate and bring back the transparency.
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Fame for fame’s sake is certainly fun, but you’re so much more than a celebutante, Pisces. With erudite Jupiter spinning backward through your star-powered fifth house until March 7, it’s time to earn some genuine credibility. Study with a master or practice until you’ve perfected your craft. An old love affair may be revived, perhaps with someone you met during your summer travels. Revisiting a sentimental location sets the stage for rekindled passion in an existing relationship.
