"Undercover Boss" Yourself
The cosmic board meeting takes place in Capricorn now, as the sun, Mercury and Pluto mingle in the sea goat's part of the sky. Venus and the moon join the meeting, inviting us to become the undercover bosses of our own lives. Return to the basics to understand the higher levels of our existence. Make plans, write lists, assemble teams and set up structures. The new moon in Capricorn on Friday is an ideal day to start.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). An old relationship will move in a fresh direction this week. This doesn't necessarily have to do with another person. It could be your relationship with money, work or your own body that takes a turn for the better. Friday brings clarity regarding the rules you want to live by from here on out.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Whatever a loved one asks of you, you're up to the task. But are your requests being answered with equal enthusiasm? Learn from your past mistakes, and assert yourself sooner in a relationship rather than later. Also of note, there's a mystery brewing, and Saturday will most certainly satisfy your curiosity.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As Mercury, your ruling planet, connects with Pluto this week, get prepared to run into exactly the person, problem or entity you want nothing to do with. Life's not-so-funny little coincidences may seem inconvenient, but later you'll appreciate this chance to rise to the occasion. The weekend brings pleasant attention.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). This week's Venus transit has a stabilizing effect on your personal and romantic life. You may suddenly feel more in control of your feelings and better able to separate emotions from facts. The practicalities of relationships may even seem to matter more than those passing feelings that you can't quantify or touch.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). All hands point to your career, and you'll get general focus and clarity regarding your next moves. This won't come in the form of an idea that strikes like lightning from the blue. Instead, it comes from getting your hands dirty with the work that must be done. The Capricorn new moon on Friday opens a fresh chapter.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Seriousness is optional. It may be challenging to stay lighthearted in your daily life as your ruling planet, Mercury, connects with the deeply intense dwarf planet Pluto. At times, it may feel as though you have to decide the fate of the whole world. If that is the case, it's better to do it with a smile on your face.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As your guiding planet, Pluto, makes a connection with communicative Mercury, you'll want to talk about the deeper issues of life — the same ones that make others uncomfortable. If anyone can get people to open up, it's you. If there's something to get off your chest, just do it. You'll be healthier for the effort.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You know people. This will help you in matters of finance this week. Many deals involve money, but usually there is so much more than that at stake. Your ability to get to the real things being negotiated and exchanged — for instance, power, freedom, choices, ego gratification — will give you a definite business advantage.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The new moon in your sign on Friday will be the fresh start you've been wanting. Fast progress can happen over the next two weeks if you know specifically what you want. With five luminaries in your part of the sky, it's as though the heavens are cheering for you. Seize this time; it's your time!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Mars is an invigorating presence in your part of the sky, lending you a physical burst of strength and vitality that would be a shame to waste. Consider taking on a fitness or dietary goal. The early week is ideal for planning how to make this a reality. Friday's new moon in determined Capricorn is the perfect start date.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Mercury and Pluto connect to point out obstacles to personal growth. You may see them best as you are tripping over them, and that's good. "We stumble and fall constantly even when we are most enlightened. But when we are in true spiritual darkness, we do not even know that we have fallen." —Thomas Merton
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: Many can fight when a fight is required. But a peaceful, harmonious existence takes much more work and sacrifice and a greater degree of heroism. This is how you live this year. You do what's necessary to get along, to have strong relationships and a smooth road from day to day. Romantic promises will be exchanged this month. You'll master a job and be paid handsomely in February. March brings music to your world. May and July show you new parts of the world.
