LeoLEO

July 23–August 22

The sun and Mercury click with timekeeper Saturn before entering Leo this week, so you’ll be extra inclined to take stock of your life as your birthday season begins. Follow your intuition regarding what to leave in the past and what to build on in the coming year. Take pride in how far you’ve come, and believe in your ability to little by little become the person you were meant to be. Your energy, mentality and self-expression are on an upswing, but Venus’s retrograde turn may make you feel less social than expected. In the next several days, you might choose to review your finances, values, possessions, talents, self-esteem and priorities. Try to distinguish between needs and wants, and consider how your desires reflect your self-image. Think back to this time of year in 2007 (the last time Venus was retrograde in the same part of the zodiac). If you remember anything that was going on with you then, it can offer clues about the next month and a half. Keep an eye on erratic behavior that might undermine you as Mars in your subliminal zone fights with unpredictable Uranus. You may learn something from shooting off in new directions, but try to be aware of what you’re doing. Most of all, enjoy the vitality that comes with having the sun in your sign. Happy birthday!

VirgoVIRGO

August 23–September 22

Expressing yourself clearly to friends and other groups should come naturally this week, with the sun and Mercury in your network sector syncing with Saturn in your communication house. You’re liable to learn from others or come across as a voice of authority yourself. You could also make beneficial contacts, so socializing can be productive, not just enjoyable. However, you’ll need to be flexible, because a Mars-Uranus battle could spell disruptions in your circle that require you to adapt. Soon after, the sun and Mercury segue into the last house of your chart, making the next few weeks less about socializing and more about recharging your battery. Your energy will be oriented inward rather than outward, luring you to focus on dreams, spirituality, imagination, introspection, rest and relaxation. Tune into your intuition, as it’s apt to be particularly on point now. Venus is turning retrograde in your sign, another factor that will direct you inward. Think back to this time of year in 2007 (the last time Venus was retrograde in the same part of the zodiac). If you remember anything that was going on with you then, it can offer clues about the next month and a half. Over the next several days, set aside time for personal reflection.

LibraLIBRA

September 23–October 22

The sun and Mercury are at the top of your chart, jibing with Saturn in your worth house this week. So shining in your profession or in public should dovetail with taking your talents seriously and getting clear on what’s most important to you. Ideally, working hard to shore up your security and making an effort to appeal to people who can give you a leg up will come together now. Your ambition might rub someone the wrong way, though. Be prepared to tweak your actions if need be to accommodate a close relationship or an unexpected response. Venus is going retrograde now and will continue backtracking until early September. You’ll probably feel somewhat reclusive in the coming week and find yourself sifting through vague desires or reflecting on the past. Think back to this time of year in 2007 (the last time Venus was retrograde in the same part of the zodiac). If you remember anything that was going on with you then, it can offer clues about the next month and a half. Libras and Tauruses are apt to feel the impact of this retrograde even more than other signs, since Venus is your ruling planet. You’re better off retreating than forcing connections. If you feel off, opt for observing and contemplating rather than engaging out of habit.

ScorpioSCORPIO

October 23–November 21

The sun and Mercury in your expansion house are harmonizing with Saturn in Scorpio this week, confirming the importance of broadening your horizons. Travel, learning, new experiences, abstract ideas, unfamiliar beliefs and people different from you can all foment the process of self-definition that you’ve been going through in the past few years. So make a point of getting beyond your routine and exploring uncharted territory. Daily life is apt to interrupt your adventures at some point, so be willing to improvise. Still, this is a good time to reinforce an outlook that will feed future personal growth. As the sun and Mercury cross your ambition angle, your focus shifts to formulating and communicating goals, making a good professional or public impression and devoting energy to accomplishing something big. But considering Venus’s retrograde turn in your network zone, be advised that you might feel less in sync with friends, peers and other groups than you’d like. If you feel out of it socially, pause and ponder the web of connections in your life and what roles you want to play. Think back to this time of year in 2007 (the last time Venus was retrograde in the same part of the zodiac). If you remember anything that was going on with you then, it can offer clues about the next month and a half.

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS

November 22–December 21

The sun and Mercury are in your depth sector and clicking with Saturn in your endings-and-release house this week, prompting you to delve into something and see it through to completion; work through an issue in your psyche and let it go; or conquer limiting fears and share yourself with another person. You’re naturally inclined to jump ahead and explore new territory, but just before these two planets segue into a house in your chart that encourages that, you’re called to go deeper into what’s already going on. One caveat: you might need personal space at some point if an intimate relationship heats up too fast. Next, your energy will get a boost, and you’ll grow more excited about what’s to come. Learning, travel, new experiences and abstract ideas will become extra appealing, as your vision expands. With Venus going retrograde in your ambition angle, though, a creative pursuit may stall or you may question how you come across professionally or publically. In the coming days, consider what goals have the most value for you. Think back to this time of year in 2007 (the last time Venus was retrograde in the same part of the zodiac). If you remember anything that was going on with you then, it can offer clues about the next month and a half.

CapricornCAPRICORN

December 22–January 19

Thanks to the sun and Mercury in your relationship angle harmonizing with Saturn in your humanity zone, you should enjoy productive interactions with people this week. Connecting with others one-on-one can help you to firm up new goals and continue to build a supportive team in your life. Professional networking could yield beneficial new contacts, and encounters with individuals and groups who share your interests or objectives will strengthen your resolve and give you energy. You’ll be able to communicate effectively, but working with a partner might lead to conflict if your emotions or personal life disrupt your rapport, so be ready to improvise. After the sun and Mercury move into your sharing sector, the complex inner workings of close relationships and of your own psyche draw your attention. Thinking about or discussing something in depth will be favored, and investigation and research are apt to go well. As Venus turns retrograde, your current taste for travel, learning and unfamiliar experiences and people could wane or be thwarted. In the coming days, reconsider what you’re chasing after. Think back to this time of year in 2007 (the last time Venus was retrograde in the same part of the zodiac). If you remember anything that was going on with you then, it can offer clues about the next month and a half.

AquariusAQUARIUS

January 20–February 18

You should feel like you’re getting somewhere this week when the sun and Mercury in your efficiency house gel with steady Saturn in your ambition angle. You’ve probably been working hard—trying to improve your health, stay on top of job responsibilities, take care of daily business and get yourself together in various little ways. And now hopefully you’ll feel things falling into place, as the evidence of gradual progress is likely to manifest with this planetary configuration. You may need to tweak your methods and take some breaks, because a Mars-Uranus squabble means distractions could prevent you from executing your agenda exactly as you intend to. When the sun and Mercury cross your relationship angle, your attention will turn toward one-on-one interactions, personal bonds and professional partnerships. You’ll gain vitality and mental stimulation from others, so don’t go it alone. But know that Venus is turning retrograde in your sharing sector, and you may feel you’re not getting all that you desire from someone. Delve into your psyche and mull over what you really want out of close relationships. Think back to this time of year in 2007 (the last time Venus was retrograde in the same part of the zodiac). If you remember anything that was going on with you then, it can offer clues about the next month and a half.

PiscesPISCES

February 19–March 20

This week, the sun and Mercury in your fulfillment house are vibing with Saturn in your expansion sector, reinforcing your personal growth. Through love, creativity and various playful pursuits, you can learn more about life. Cultivating different sides of yourself will make you a more well-rounded person, enrich your experiences and give you a broader outlook. Express more of the real you every day, and the world can start to take on a different shape, subsequently shifting your path in it. A Mars-Uranus dustup suggests that you may not be able to do things exactly the way you want, especially if your finances or other resources are unsteady, so be flexible. When the sun and Mercury continue on to your productivity zone later in the week, that’s your cue to get to work tackling your health, daily duties and job responsibilities. Venus is turning retrograde in your relationship angle, so you may feel less connected to people and might sense someone pulling away. Reflect on your bonds and examine what you want from people. Think back to this time of year in 2007 (the last time Venus was retrograde in the same part of the zodiac). If you remember anything that was going on with you then, it can offer clues about the next month and a half.

AriesARIES

March 21–April 19

The sun and Mercury at the bottom of your chart are meshing with Saturn in your depth sector this week, suggesting that time at home—either alone or with someone close to you—can help to solidify your relationship with yourself or with that person. If you concentrate on nurturing yourself or your bond with someone, it will pay off by making you feel more grounded. This might be a good opportunity to work through personal insecurity, a lingering fear in your psyche or apprehensions about intimacy. One caveat: Mars is quarreling with Uranus in Aries, so you’ll probably get antsy at some point and need a breather. The sun and Mercury move into your fulfillment zone next, injecting you with playful, creative, romantic, joyful, humorous, expressive energy over the next few weeks. But with Venus going retrograde in your efficiency house, in the coming days, you’re called to consider the value you place on your health, work and time. Perhaps your habits, methods or schedule could be changed so you get more satisfaction out of your days. Think back to this time of year in 2007 (the last time Venus was retrograde in the same part of the zodiac). If you remember anything that was going on with you then, it can offer clues about the next month and a half.

TaurusTAURUS

April 20–May 20

One-on-one conversations and interactions should be productive this week, thanks to the sun and Mercury in your communication sector vibing with Saturn in your partnership angle. Everyday encounters may take on a more serious tone, as you’re prompted to engage on a meaningful level. This would be a good time to discuss issues in a relationship that need resolution. Hopefully you’ll find that such a conversation can be handled maturely, respectfully and clearly. Soon after that, both planets dip down to the bottom of your chart, pulling your attention to your emotional state, home life, family, personal comfort and memories. With the sun and Mercury coming together, the theme of expressing your feelings is repeated. If it doesn’t seem appropriate to have a big talk with someone, you might try journaling instead. Venus is going retrograde until early September, which will likely make you feel more introverted and could result in a creative block. In the next week, you might reminisce about a past love or rediscover an old source of pleasure. Think back to this time of year in 2007 (the last time Venus was retrograde in the same part of the zodiac). If you remember anything that was going on with you then, it can offer clues about the next month and a half.

GeminiGEMINI

May 21–June 20

You should find it easier to get your priorities straight this week, because the sun and Mercury are in your value house, gelling with Saturn in your productivity zone. You’ll have the ability to utilize your resources well and operate efficiently to accomplish something. Apply an upswing of confidence to tasks that matter. Give some thought to your finances and material needs, and decide what must be done to improve your security. Assess your range of talents and how you can make them work for you. A Mars-Uranus skirmish cues you to avoid conflicts with friends, colleagues or another group over money, possessions, values or priorities, and let people go their own way. Next, the sun and Mercury skip into your cognition-and-communication sector, so your thoughts and daily life will pick up speed, as information and interactions increase. However, Venus is going retrograde for the next six weeks. Think back to this time of year in 2007 (the last time Venus was retrograde in the same part of the zodiac). If you remember anything that was going on with you then, it can offer clues about the next month and a half. In the coming days, family relationships may shift, or you might experience discomfort in your environment and consider whether your décor or your living situation truly pleases you.

CancerCANCER

June 21–July 22

Just before the sun and Mercury leave your sign this week, they each sync up with stabilizing Saturn in your self-expression house, encouraging you to continue on a path to personal fulfillment. Taking yourself—and perhaps your creative potential—seriously is vital to your growth. If there’s something you’ve been working on that you’re ready to share, this would be a good time for getting constructive feedback. You’ll probably feel more confident now about the process of becoming a well-rounded, happy person. You’re able to radiate your personality and make an impact. Just be careful not to cross swords with an authority figure such as a boss or parent. When the sun and Mercury move on to your worth zone, your attention turns toward finances, possessions, talents, values and self-esteem. You’ll be more focused on what you have, need and want than who you are. With Venus turning retrograde in your cognition-and-communication sector, you may feel yourself pulling away from people a bit and mulling things over in your head rather than expressing them. Think back to this time of year in 2007 (the last time Venus was retrograde in the same part of the zodiac). If you remember anything that was going on with you then, it can offer clues about the next month and a half.
