Leo Sun Fun The last full week of this year's Leo sun will bring the congenial Libra moon and helpful, beautiful people into our lives. Alas, Friday's square of the sun and Saturn will keep us from getting too comfortable. The sticking points in our lives may …Read more. Solar Attraction and Action If a persistent person ever pursued you, you know that even when he or she finally got to you, you were less receptive than you might have been without the hassle. The sun, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and, finally, the moon in charismatic Leo declare big …Read more. Straight Ahead for Saturn Saturn is the karma king, the key keeper of each new incarnation, a wizard wielding blessings and curses and often within the same wish-granting spell. Retrograde Saturn dished just deserts in such a confusing manner, his change to direct motion …Read more. Venus, Uranus and Love As rebellious Uranus follows the retrograde trend started by Venus last week, it's a time to realize that love is not a one-size-fits-all proposal. It's a custom job. If your love isn't catered to the person receiving it, it's not love. Love is more …Read more.

Solar Journey of Earthly Excavation


When the dinosaur died, what the ground swallowed up was nothing more than a rotten carcass. A hundred million years later, when the skeleton was unearthed, it was an invaluable treasure, a window into a fascinating world, a source of breathless wonder. The start of the solar journey through the earth sign of Virgo is an ideal time to excavate your past. The artifacts you discarded like garbage will now be awesome discoveries.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). As a rule, you're a quick study, but this week sees you at a plateau. Getting to the other side will require special attention. Learning to learn is in order. The way you practice will be more important than how long you spend at it. Get a teacher who will give you highly structured training and immediate feedback.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The journey without is always reflected by the journey within, eventually. There's usually a time lapse involved. Why is it worth mentioning now? The things you're thinking are going to take some kind of physical form in the future. This is certain. Make adjustments accordingly. It's the kindest thing you can do for future-you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The fight, flight or freeze response in the primitive part of the human brain can be triggered by the most minor things at times. When that happens this week, just know it's normal. When you don't know what to do, wait it out. Breathe to relax and let the message travel to other parts of your brain. No panicking!

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You know what you need to fix. You don't need to learn from the best. You just need to learn from someone who is better than you by a few points. Incremental improvement counts, and one small improvement this week will be life changing. Likely your teacher is someone you'll only meet with three times.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don't view the world like you used to. The joys and trials along the way gave you new eyeballs, and it will happen again over the course of this week. However you're seeing things now, know that it's not how you're going to see them at the end of the week. Give yourself a plan that leaves room for a change of mind.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). True, you have dozens if not hundreds of stellar connections already, but try to add a few more to your contact list this week anyway. Ask for introductions to interesting and powerful players. You have yet to meet all of the people who will be important to the task at hand.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Is your life about self-discovery or self-creation? This week it's about both. You'll use what you learn about yourself as a foundation to build the next version of you. That version of you will in turn be even better equipped to discover the deeper levels of who you inherently are.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Usually, people who do more consume less. The joy and effort of doing is so fulfilling that it diminishes the need for a lot of other "stuff." The money you put into training of any kind will be well worth it this week, but do research the instructor and operation before you plunk down your money. What do the critics say?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If it works, it works. Accept it. Sure, you will be tempted to break down the process and analyze it in depth to figure out why it's so effective. Leave that for some day when you have more time. This week, you're wise just to run happily along with what's working for as long as it does.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). For you, passion has both good and bad connotations, as you can recall someone who matters to you becoming frighteningly out of control. It's part of why you strive to be slow to anger and infatuation-resistant. When you give, you give all. Shouldn't you make sure the other person is worthy of it first?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Benjamin Franklin said, "An investment in knowledge pays the best interest." This is the best week to invest in your skills and education. Also, any information you buy (short of international secrets or Wall Street insider trade information) is likely to pay off handsomely in the long run.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You've been looking for your niche — the lucrative one that will pay you for the unique expression of your talent. Don't worry. You'll find it. You're very close. You just need to ask more questions to find out what they need and want. At the intersection of their craving and your gifts, there is a goldmine.

THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: What you do to improve the environment for yourself will make it beautiful for everyone around you, too. The events of the next six weeks will inspire you to change your priorities and goals. Sock away money and carefully plan your financial strategy because you'll want to invest in a January business opportunity. In May, something will grow where there used to be a hole in your life, and you'll be so happy that you had the room to embrace this. Romance fuels your spirit of adventure and vice versa.
