January 20–February 18
This is a good week for teamwork, since the sun in Aquarius is forming an alliance with Saturn in your network zone. Turn to your friends, peers and colleagues, and work together as a group to make something happen. Mercury in your sign is in cahoots with Mars, who’s charging through the house that rules mindset and communication. This link should help you to walk your talk, assert your ideas, connect with people quickly and effectively and tackle a cerebral task. You’ll be able to present your case and defend your position should you need to. As the sun segues into your worth house, your birthday season draws to a close, and the spotlight shifts to your personal values, resources, finances and possessions.
February 19–March 20
With the sun in your solitude corner harmonizing with Saturn in your ambition angle this week, you may feel like retreating from the world, but you can still chip away at your goals. Private study or behind-the-scenes work will prove productive, and making a sacrifice can help you show responsibility—thus fortifying your reputation. Mercury is vibing with Mars in your worth zone, prompting you to use your instincts and imagination when dealing with possessions and money. Compassion could lead you to donate something or to use your resources to help others. The sun’s arrival in Pisces kicks off your birthday season, infusing you with vitality and allowing you to project your personality with vigor. It’s perfectly appropriate for you to focus on yourself in the coming month. Happy birthday!
March 21–April 19
This week’s sun-Saturn collaboration links your network zone and your expansion house, facilitating group travel, learning and adventure. Mixing with people who share your interests and ideals can help you make sense of the world around you, figure out how to play the game of life and determine your own path. Mercury in your network zone is meshing with Mars in Aries, so you shouldn’t have any trouble communicating your intentions to others and planning your next move. This planetary pairing can inspire you to solicit support for your agenda from friends, colleagues and peers. The sun’s move into your spirit corner signals that your solar year is winding down, and it’s time to take a step back, reflect and recharge your battery.
April 20–May 20
The sun is hovering at the pinnacle of your chart and syncing with Saturn in your depth-and-sharing sector this week, implying that partnership, doing deep work on yourself or focusing intently on a passion project can enable you to shine in public or in your profession. Constructive cooperation with another individual and the determination to persevere through dark days will work in your favor. If you’ve been working privately without receiving credit, this week’s Mercury-Mars confab will allow you to publicize your efforts to higher-ups and to figure out a plan for finishing something up. When the sun enters your network zone, that’s your cue to be more of a joiner and engage in group activities. You’ll have energy for socializing and professional networking in the weeks to come.
May 21–June 20
When the sun in your exploration zone gels with Saturn in your one-on-one angle this week, sharing a new experience with a close friend or significant other could strengthen your relationship. Attend a class, take a trip, meet new people or do something outside your normal routine together. Interacting with people who are different from you may help you meet a potential partner. A Mercury-Mars conference promotes learning in a group setting and traveling with friends, and you can also learn a great deal from teamwork now. The sun’s ascension to the peak of your chart invites you to shine in public or in your profession in the month to come. You may be called to take on more responsibility and perhaps even a leadership role.
June 21–July 22
As the sun in your depth-and-sharing sector forms a coalition with Saturn in your efficiency corner this week, you’d do well to engage in a working partnership; dig into a research project or investigation; draw from outside resources to fulfill your responsibilities; or deal with a psychological issue to improve your wellbeing. Concentrate your energy on one worthwhile endeavor for maximum productivity. Mercury’s link with Mars in your ambition angle reiterates this theme and further implies that intensive mental work will promote progress toward a goal. The sun shows up in your exploration corner next, indicating that your focus will soon expand, and mind-broadening experiences such as travel and encounters with people from different backgrounds will help you to thrive in the coming month.
July 23–August 22
Your ruling planet is traveling through your one-on-one angle and gelling with Saturn in your love-and-happiness sector this week, motivating you to share your true self with other individuals and possibly partner with someone on a creative project. Make definite plans to see people and enjoy life; don’t expect fun to happen spontaneously. A little effort will pay off. Mercury is clicking with Mars in your expansion sector, suggesting that you might also want to plan a trip or an adventure with someone or engage in a lively philosophical discussion. You’ll be quite convincing but can also broaden your mind through attentive listening. The sun’s arrival in your depth zone turns your attention to subtleties and puts you in touch with powerful emotions in the weeks to come.
August 23–September 22
This week, the sun in your efficiency corner jibes with Saturn in your foundation angle, implying that working from home or working on your home will be productive enterprises. Whether you choose to tackle small tasks around the house or one big domestic project, you’re likely to make good progress. Helping out a family member or someone you live with would also be worthwhile. Your ruling planet is syncing with Mars in your depth sector, so you might discuss a relationship problem with your partner or a close friend or examine a psychological issue in detail. After the sun crosses your one-on-one angle, your connections with other individuals should become a higher priority, and you can learn about yourself through your encounters with people.
September 23–October 22
With the sun in your love-and-happiness house harmonizing with Saturn in your thinking-and-talking corner this week, you can communicate your feelings clearly and maturely, and you’ll also take creative self-expression quite seriously. This planetary combination allows you to revel in being yourself and have a good time without losing your head and taking unwise risks. In fact, this combo favors taking a well-calculated risk. A Mercury-Mars link underscores the theme of communicating your feelings and also encourages you to playfully engage other individuals and show your sense of humor. The sun’s arrival in your efficiency corner for a month-long stay gives you the incentive and the energy to put your nose to the grindstone and cross a lot off your to-do list.
October 23–November 21
When the sun in your foundation angle joins forces with Saturn in your resources zone this week, introspection and reflection on the past can help you to clarify your personal values and shore up your self-worth, and you may also have significant success with an organization project in your home. Mercury is vibing with Mars in your efficiency corner, facilitating productive conversations with coworkers and family members. This planetary pairing also encourages you to tune into your innermost thoughts and feelings—and perhaps examine the past—in order to work through a problem that’s affecting your wellbeing and maybe even making it difficult for you to function. The sun’s entry into your fulfillment sector coaxes you to express your whole self and do more of what makes you happy.
November 22–December 21
Saturn in Sagittarius is pairing off with the sun in your cognition-and-communication house this week, enabling you to connect with people, express yourself well, learn something useful, plan wisely and gain self-knowledge. If you’ve been feeling isolated, this is a good opportunity to put yourself out there and feel understood. When Mercury gels with Mars in your pleasure sector, you might take a short trip; enjoy a new experience or brief encounter; engage in creative writing; bravely share your heartfelt feelings; have fun with a sibling or neighbor; or meet someone you want to pursue. The sun dips down to your foundation angle next, shifting your focus to home, family, comfort and security in the coming month, and you may crave downtime to unwind or reflect.
December 22–January 19
The sun in your worth zone is teaming up with your ruling planet in your spirit sector this week, nudging you to finish a project, make a mature sacrifice, cut your losses or gain a clearer understanding of the past. All of the above can make you feel better about yourself and what you have going for you. An ending may serve your needs better than you realize. A Mercury-Mars coalition suggests that your judgment related to money and possessions will be on point, and you could make a well-timed decision about your living situation. As the sun segues into your thinking-and-talking corner for a month-long visit, the tempo of your thoughts and daily life will pick up, and your curiosity and wanderlust may be aroused.
