Read on to see what the stars have in store this week…
January 20–February 18
Recognize that you don’t have all the answers when feisty Mars in your worth house spars with high-minded Jupiter in your perspective zone this week. You’re identifying strongly with what you have and what’s important to you while Mars is in this house, increasing the chances of disagreeing over money, possessions and values. Mars is also clashing with Saturn in your network sector, so you could feel blocked by others—tempting you to go against group interests to get what you’re after. Use your resources wisely and avoid impulse spending. The sun sails into Aquarius on Thursday, kicking off your birthday season and filling you with vitality. You’ll be able to project your personality with gusto in the coming month, bringing you positive attention. Happy birthday!
February 19–March 20
Mars in Pisces jostles with Jupiter in your sharing sector this week, so be careful not to overpower another individual. Your assertiveness combined with your expectations can lead you to push too hard to get what you’re hoping for, and you might need to dial it down a bit. Mars is also skirmishing with Saturn in your ambition angle, warning you to proceed with caution around authority figures. Temper an urge to buck the system. Play by the rules and don’t show resentment—but don’t get discouraged either. You simply need to slow down and operate in a more methodical manner. With Venus in your sign gelling with Pluto in your humanity zone, socializing and professional networking should go very well, so get out and circulate.
March 21–April 19
Your ruling planet is still hiding out in the last house of your chart and scuffling with Jupiter in your one-on-one angle this week. Continue to guard against self-sabotage, irritability, regressive behavior and actions motivated by emotions you’re not fully aware of—or not dealing with. Left unchecked, such issues are likely to impact your relationships. Mars is also contending with Saturn in your expansion sector, suggesting that you could get frustrated toiling away without credit and feeling like you still have so much to learn. Or you might feel like you know enough that you should be making more progress. It’s also possible that a mature, practical outlook will feel like an impediment. Work on finishing something up rather than starting anything new.
April 20–May 20
Friendship and teamwork could be complicated this week, due to Mars in your group zone quarreling with Jupiter and Saturn. If you have a lot on your own plate, you may find it difficult to collaborate with others. Or it could seem like a particular individual has different priorities and isn’t holding up his or her end of the bargain. Sharing, trust and intimacy are especially challenging now. As the sun ascends to the peak of your chart, you’re encouraged to focus on your career, goals and overall life direction. You may take on more responsibility in the coming month and have an opportunity to stand out from the crowd. A Venus-Pluto confab favors group travel and soaking up knowledge from other people.
May 21–June 20
Mars is at the top of your chart, fueling your ambition, but his spat with Jupiter in your pleasure sector means that work and play probably won’t mix well and you’ll have to be flexible in juggling the two. Mars is also feuding with Saturn in your one-on-one angle, so it’s likely to feel like a particular person, a partnership or a relationship obligation is holding you back. It would be a good idea to compromise a bit rather than fighting to achieve only your own aims. Partnering with someone else can help you to make a good impression and do creative work. With the sun cruising into your expansion zone, your wanderlust and hunger for knowledge are bound to be triggered in the weeks to come.
June 21–July 22
This week’s Mars-Jupiter disagreement hints that a big part of you is motivated to broaden your horizons, explore the world, fight for what you believe in and chase after new experiences—while another part of you is content to enjoy some peace and quiet, spend time with people you already know and keep your world safe and small and cozy. You crave a sense of belonging and wellbeing, but you also know you should get out of your comfort zone. The Mars-Saturn feud, on the other hand, pits your quest for adventure against your workload, and you may feel like you simply have too much to do and can’t get out of your routine. Seize any opportunity to interact with someone new, as you could make a powerful connection now.
July 23–August 22
You might be thinking too big when it comes to a shared activity, sex or joint resources, since hopeful Jupiter in your cognition corner is squabbling with provocateur Mars in your merging sector. Mars is also in conflict with Saturn in your joy-and-self-expression house, hinting that romance and love may seem to be lacking in an intimate relationship—or you might feel too inhibited to get close to someone. But a Venus-Pluto collaboration implies that working on a relationship or sharing a job or health endeavor can facilitate closeness. And with the sun crossing your one-on-one angle, this is not the time of year to go it alone. You’ll get a lot of energy out of your relationships and learn about yourself through your encounters with others.
August 23–September 22
Your quest to get your own needs met can make it harder to cooperate with other individuals this week, given that Mars in your one-on-one angle is out of sync with Jupiter in your resources house. Tweaking your list of demands and making full use of what you already have will make matters easier. A Mars-Saturn disagreement suggests that domestic or family responsibilities, underlying insecurity or the weight of the past can also block your efforts at partnership. But the Venus-Pluto confab hints at a worthwhile moment of romance or shared pleasure, so do make a point of connecting with someone close to you. As the sun enters your productivity corner, you’ll have more energy to take care of business and take care of your body.
September 23–October 22
A conflict between Jupiter in Libra and Mars in your efficiency corner this week nudges you to tweak your approach and advises you not to take on more than you can handle. This is a good time to scale back and take things one step at a time. Mars is also quibbling with Saturn in your cognition-and-communication house, so a limiting mindset may prevent you from doing what you’ve set out to do, but critical thinking can actually help you to modify your m.o. appropriately and craft a workable plan. A Venus-Pluto connection hints that you’ll enjoy working from home now. And with the sun arriving in your joy sector, you’re reminded to make time for romance, play and creative self-expression in the weeks to come.
October 23–November 21
When Mars in your joy zone tussles with Jupiter in your subliminal corner this week, your unconscious expectations might feed into your behavior in a romantic relationship or drive you to take a risk to get what you want. Mars is also clashing with Saturn in your worth house, so it’s likely that limited funds or confidence could keep you from pursuing pleasure or something you desire. Although you shouldn’t let insecurity call the shots, it would be wise to go slowly now nevertheless. Besides, an encounter between Venus in your joy zone and Pluto in your thinking-and-talking corner can facilitate an unforced moment of happiness or affection, fueled by a self-empowering mindset. As the sun segues into your foundation angle, the importance of a solid emotional and literal home base is emphasized.
November 22–December 21
With dynamic Mars at the bottom of your chart fending off restrictive Saturn in your sign this week, you might experience a conflict with family or people you live with—or feel cut off from what they’re doing. You may be holding in unpleasant emotions in an effort to seem like you have it all together, and an old behavior pattern can work against you now. Carve out alone time if you need it, and get to the bottom of what’s going on inside you instead of repressing it. Your inner and outer selves may be working against each other, and it’s time to make them allies. The sun’s move can inspire you to balance out that self-reflection with energizing interactions and challenging intellectual activity.
December 22–January 19
Be mindful of how you deal with higher-ups this week because go-getter Mars in your thinking-and-talking corner is out of sync with excessive Jupiter in your ambition angle. Mars is also skirmishing with Saturn in your subliminal zone, so you may naturally keep yourself in check without intending to. However, regret, doubt, self-judgment or guilt can prevent you from executing your game plan, and you should try not to undermine your own efforts in such a way. Instead, use this energy to create a doable plan for finishing something up. A Venus-Pluto collaboration empowers you to convey positive emotions with vigor, and it implies that you’ll be able to relate to people on a very deep level, expressing the you that you’re slowly becoming.
