Overall, this is shaping up to be a lovely week! Even with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto still fully in retrograde, we have a bit of a cosmic break from some of the harsh aspects you may have been experiencing recently. Mercury moves into Taurus, slowing down your thinking and turning thoughts to treasures and pleasures. You'll be more focused on getting the most for your money and purchasing luxury items. At the end of the week, the sun moves into Gemini, bringing out a more social side for the next few weeks. What does this mean for your zodiac sign (both sun sign or ascendant)? Here's the breakdown, courtesy of astrologer Suzie Kerr Wright.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Activity in your second house of values and valuables has you focusing on what is most important. You'll be a bit more discerning about who you hang out with this week, choosing to spend time only with those who make you feel the most comfortable. An intimate dinner party with your closest friends who share your views will make you smile from the inside out.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Mid-week, Mercury entering your sign gives you more confidence to move forward with a decision you've been struggling with. But before you give notice at work or make a change in a relationship, take one last look to determine whether stubbornness has played a part or if you've simply given it all you've got. Once you are clear, take decisive action.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Your ruling planet settles down into an earth sign, and you now have a chance to be more deliberate with your actions. Recent events have had you thinking about where you're holding yourself back. This week, you get an opportunity to release old habits one step at a time and understand the benefit of doing things a bit more thoroughly for longer-lasting results.
Cancer (June 21–July22)
Early in the week, you'll be enjoying the company of a dear friend who's been supportive of your dreams. You're inspired by the way she sees you for who you are and who you can become. This is a powerful time, when you realize how to get from where you are to where you want to be. It all makes sense now, thanks to this lovely interaction.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Coworkers seem a bit feisty and stressed. You'll want to keep to yourself as much as is possible for a gregarious Leo. Just remember—it's not about you right now. Review your budget and get it balanced, and focus on long-term financial planning. By the end of the week, the head-butting ends and you'll feel more like your old self, with a better plan for the future.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Sun in a lovely trine to your sign keeps the flow of good energy moving easily until the end of the week. You may have been thinking about reviving an old hobby or a creative project with a possibility of generating additional income, and the stars align with that desire. Speaking of desires, a dream trip now becomes more of a possibility with a bit of creative thinking.
Libra (September 23–October 22)
Partnerships of all kinds are your biggest focus now, and compromise is your mantra. Don't let business interests interfere with your ability to charm your way into everyone's heart. On the same note, overspending on loved ones can cause problems in the next week. Strive for a healthy balance of romance and finance.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
If you expect too much from others this week, you may be let down. Stubborn or just contrary behavior from those closest to you could have you scratching your head. Don't ignore their ideas, but for now, the best advice is to keep your eye on what you can do on your own and just get it done. A previously stalled situation may suddenly come back to life by the end of the week, so you'll want to be ready to jump on this fantastic opportunity.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
The week starts with a pile of responsibilities and ends with opportunities for expanding your network of fabulously interesting individuals. Date night with your significant other could turn out to be more exciting than you planned but also more expensive, so make sure you know your budget limitations before spending wildly. You've worked hard and deserve the best, but you don't want to end up with a financial hangover.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
You have the verbal advantage as you get your point across with style. As much as you've been feeling powerless lately, you've now got others' attentions too, so make it good. The emphasis is in your fifth house of self-expression, children, and romance. If you work for yourself, expect to be in demand. However, do your best to let work take a back seat while you enjoy some time with your love.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Spending time with family becomes a priority this week, and a lovely trip down memory lane can have you feeling nostalgic while also realizing how far you've come in life. Reflecting on what is most important and how to keep the balance between obligations to family and your own life will be your priority. You can still be the amazing individual you are and find time to share your life with those who may not fully “get” you.
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
You'll find love, romance, and beauty right in your own back yard this week. Explore your local shops and interact with interesting neighbors. You'll find opportunities to learn and grow. At work, you'll have a chance to further your education.
