Horoscopes by Tracy Allen.
March 21–April 19
You’ll like the simplicity of this week’s planetary activity, compared to last week’s bedlam, because it allows you to streamline your actions and intentions. First, the energy-giving sun in your sign forms an opportune angle with expansive Jupiter in your cognition-and-communication sector, enabling you to think big, voice your ideas with vigor, and propagate enthusiasm. This is the time to say what you mean and mean what you say. And you might want to try writing a mission statement now for the coming year. Think of the “About” page on an organization’s website: What should people know about you? What are you here for? Next, appealing Venus and assertive Mars align in Aries, melding what you want with how you go about getting it. Zero in on what you most want to pull into your life and tailor your doings to those priorities. With Mars as your ruler, you tend to do, do, do. You’ll gain even more satisfaction if you match a “want” to each “do.”
April 20–May 20
You’re still in the mood to lay low, with four planets lingering in your solitude sector. When the vivifying sun connects with growth-oriented Jupiter in your worth zone early in the week, take this opportunity to apply the shred of energy you do have to building up your financial security and/or your confidence. How? By concentrating on an untapped talent or resource that you can maximize this year if you invest more faith in it. Yin Venus, your ruling planet, joins with her yang counterpart Mars later in the week, combining attraction and drive. By virtue of what she desires, Venus draws things to her, while Mars goes after things and fights for them. Think about what you want and what you can do about it. But given that the part of your chart Venus and Mars are currently transiting concerns release, also think about what you need to let go of in order to facilitate the process. Fear? Ego? Control? If you become more conscious of an encumbrance, you can start to unpack it.
May 21–June 20
This week brings an energy boost from friends or a group that revives your belief in what you’re aspiring to become. With voluminous Jupiter in your sign, you’re in a major growth cycle, and a cluster of planets in your network zone keeps drawing you to teamwork, probably with erratic results. But it’s easier for you to bridge the gap now between what you’re hoping to achieve and what others are bringing to the table. To make the most of this period, you need to be capable of identifying what you want from people and how you conduct yourself with them. Is your circle of friends supportive of the direction you’re heading in? Are you affiliated with a group that shares your interests or goals? Do your dealings with others reflect your values? Coordinate your efforts with those of others in a spirit of congeniality this week, putting out there what you want to get back.
June 21–July 22
The egoistic sun has been lighting up the top of your chart, beckoning you to show what you’re made of in the public arena. When encouraging Jupiter in your subconscious sector makes contact with the sun this week, the confidence that you’ve been keeping under wraps—perhaps even from yourself—nudges you into the spotlight. Allow your personal inspiration to propel you to greater heights, even though it means stepping out of your comfort zone. Your professional appeal is high, and you’re able to go after your goals with a mixture of creativity and guts. You’ll command respect if you adopt a sense of authority now, based on the belief that you’ve earned this chance to shine. Get clear on what you want to be known for, and act accordingly.
July 23–August 22
When your ruling planet, the sun, gels with boundless Jupiter in your humanity sector this week, you’re challenged to shine your light for the sake of others rather than to serve your own ego needs. If you can get beyond self-interests and aim to make a meaningful contribution to the world, you’ll push the limits of what’s possible. Expand your definition of yourself, motivated by high ideals and the hope of having an impact on other people’s lives. Travel and other forms of exposure to foreign cultures will broaden your perspective and help you learn what you want to do and be. You’re attracted now to people and experiences that can teach you—that means opting for the new and different over the tried and true.
August 23–September 22
It’s only through digging deep down within yourself and affirming who you are and who you are not that you’ll approach your highest aspirations this week. The better you understand yourself psychologically now (with no judgment attached!), the better you’ll be able to move toward what you’d like to believe you can accomplish. When you see what’s truly inside you, you’ll see that your faith in your potential is justified. You’re craving intimacy, probably in a one-on-one relationship but possibly with your core self as well. You want raw realness and are willing to work for it. But if you’re not fully aware of this fact, compulsive behavior could be driving you towards a confrontation with someone close to you or with hidden aspects of your psyche. Uncovering what you most desire will facilitate its acquisition.
September 23–October 22
If you can see yourself through the eyes of someone else this week, that will pave the way to a broader vision of your future. Look at the way you’re seen by the people you interact with most closely. What ego needs do you bring to your partnerships? What sides of yourself do you present in one-on-one encounters? Whatever you can learn about who you are in your relationships will feed into a more optimistic outlook on who you’re becoming—and will ultimately make you much wiser by expanding your viewpoint. And when your ruler Venus harmonizes with Mars in your relationship angle later in the week, you’re able to balance charm and aggression. You can make a move to get what you want with minimal risk of offending someone.
October 23–November 21
When the sun in your work zone jibes with Jupiter in your sharing sector, the energy you’ve been putting into self-improvement fuels your optimism about a close relationship. Alternatively, your enthusiasm for your job may coincide with hopes for a joint venture. In any case, your belief in a partnership is built up by your own vital efforts. And when law-of-attraction Venus links with go-getter Mars, your co-ruler, your desire for quality work and your ability to execute it effectively come together. You’ll combine creativity and efficiency now, especially if you endeavor to be of service to others. With a bit of effort, you can bring what you value and what you do with your time into accord. But you may need to have the courage to strip away some nonessentials to get to the heart of what you want to be doing.
November 22–December 21
The vibrant sun in your joy sector clicks with fortuitous Jupiter—your ruling planet—in your partners house early in the week, so expressing yourself in a heartfelt way is likely to go over well with others. With your ruler in your opposite sign, you’ve been feeding off the energy that relationships bring to your life. The sun is bringing out your fun and possibly romantic side, nudging you to let the teenager in you out to play. Creativity and love inspire you now, and your inspiration will be contagious to someone else. And when Venus and Mars collide, desire and action blend, which could result in a flurry of artistic work or the pursuit of a person or object who’s captured your fancy. You have the boldness now to go after whom or what you want, but ask yourself first if he, she or it raises your happiness quotient.
December 22–January 19
When the charged-up sun in your foundation angle syncs with buoyant Jupiter in your duties house, it gives you the stimulus to tackle your workload with gusto. You’re able to handle your responsibilities with an upbeat attitude if you stay humble. This isn’t about power or ambition; it’s about clocking the hours and getting things done, and done well. “Things” are likely to pertain to employment, but could also include health and fitness, errands, service to others, pets and other elements of your daily routine. The right mix of self-confidence and humility will keep you on track not only to cross off tasks on your list, but to sharpen your skills and refine your time management while you’re at it. Strive to be not just more competent, but more useful. How can you improve yourself on a day-to-day basis so that you’re in a better position to improve something beyond yourself?
January 20–February 18
This is not the week for you to be incommunicado. The energizing sun in your communication zone forms a cooperative angle with exuberant Jupiter in your joy sector, helping you to convey whatever is in your heart. This could be a highly creative time, as you’re able to express something that’s unique to you, and you’ll inspire others with your exhilaration and originality. Or you may simply feel playful and affectionate, so definitely make a point of reaching out to people you’re happy to be around, including children. Love—romantic and otherwise—can blossom in you now, but you have to stay open to it. Make room in your mind for the possibility of love from unexpected sources. Don’t hide from people or shrink your world in some way, because it wants to expand. Notice the positive energy that you can get from the simplest interactions. And when magnetic Venus and just-do-it Mars combine forces in your mentality house, think about the emotional atmosphere you want to draw to you and what you can do to make it happen.
February 19–March 20
The life-giving sun in your worth house meshes with freedom-loving Jupiter in your roots angle, suggesting that a positive self-image can help to liberate you from the past. Strengthen your confidence as much as possible, and then you can begin to understand how your family history might be viewed from a different perspective—that of a solid, independent individual. You may gain valuable intellectual distance from childhood by shoring up your self-esteem. Then when Venus and Mars hook up in that same part of your chart, figure out what will enhance your sense of worth and resolve to go after it. Will greater financial security make you feel better? If so, what are you doing to attain it? You can attract wealth of all kinds into your life by aligning your values and your actions.
