Aries (March 21-April 19)  

Get ready for a summer like no other, Aries. Creative play is where it’s at! What’s your favorite way to express yourself? Are you inclined toward the arts, or do you prefer dreaming up new businesses? Or maybe you like to pull engines apart and put them back together again. Whatever medium you like to play in, get the tools and supplies that you need! You’re ready to grow your skills and promote your passions. Romantic relationships benefit greatly during this time (your sex drive is running high too)! You deserve it all kiddo, you’ve been through a lot in the last few years. Think of this playful time like watering your own roots (you’re going to bear some juicy fruit next year).

You’re in for a spirited summer, Taurus! Your creative nature is ready to blossom. All you need are a few seeds of inspiration and a fertile imagination. The arts are calling your name! Intellectual studies such as learning a language or a new skill-set to augment your craft are highly also favored. While partnerships may have been strained or even tested lately, you are likely to feel that you are standing on firmer ground. Relations with family members, parents and children alike, are playful and good-natured. You’re feeling more in-tune with your deeper emotions and this promotes an easy harmony with others. Restorative and bonding times with loved ones are heartfelt and honest. Accept all invitations that come your way!

You’re matter-of-fact in your approach to life this summer, Gemini. Matters to do with your craft or service and how effective or efficient you can be have been on your mind. You will spend some time cultivating better methods and procedures, whether that’s simply just for yourself or for the teams you work with. Get ready to take some credit! Get-togethers with coworkers and friends are pleasant and easy-going. You can easily appreciate the little things in life. This is a nice time to let others know how much you care about them and your communication skills are tops. Short trips or traveling to places around your hometown can also provide you with stimulation and delight.  Exciting events and spontaneous occurrences keep you busy and engaged!

It’s your time of year, Cancer. Happy Birthday! The stars are aligning, boosting your vitality and strengthening your spirit. It’s okay to be a little self-centered right now. You’re eager to work hard towards a goal and you’re not shy about asserting yourself right now. If others try to dominate you or persuade you against your wishes, you are simply not going to stand for it! You’re focused and strong in your convictions. You can easily accomplish a lot now.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

A number of planets are transitioning into your sign, Leo. (Hello, Jupiter and Venus!) This pushes you into the limelight. This ain’t nothing you can’t handle, baby. Exciting opportunities, playful events, and warm-hearted people make their way into your life this season. Romantic flirtations and meaningful connections keep your heart beating fast. What’s the catch, you ask? Responsibilities to do with home and family are on the table. You need the ground beneath your feet to be firm. In order to achieve this, a residential change or improvement at home or within a family dynamic might be in the works. Since you’re likely to see an increase in your income or your personal resources, securing a firm footing is much more of a reality that a pipedream!

Friendships and group camaraderie are extremely rewarding now, Virgo. You’re eager to establish yourself within a team and share your goals. This is an excellent time to align your intentions with others and get involved in group projects. If you don’t have a particular project in mind, get out there and start socializing! You might be amazed at how inspired you are by listening to others and learning what they’re trying to accomplish. Your humanitarian nature is stirred. Wanting to help others, especially those less fortunate, might be an important theme. Time spent in the great outdoors, communing with nature or relaxing with friends might be just what the doctor ordered. Earth-based spiritual philosophies and causes that help the environment will call your name.

You’ve gone through a lot in the last few years, Libra. And you have an excellent grasp on what is meaningful to you now. Your value-system is refined.

Over the next three years you’re going to see a substantial increase in what makes you feel rich. It’s like a harvest that will continue to blossom due to the efforts you’re taking! (Makes sense, right?) In the meantime, quality connections and new friends are being made. Like the old saying goes the “birds of feather flock together” you’re meeting like-minded people you can relate to. (Friends might become lovers and possibly old lovers become friends.)

While you’re still making big changes for yourself, keep in mind Rome wasn’t built in a day. Take advantage of the summer season to travel a little and expand your horizons. Even the most trivial encounter can result in a pivotal learning experience you. Forays into the philosophical, metaphysical, religious and spiritual realms might be extra appealing right now.

The winds of change are in the air, Sagittarius.  Can you feel that shift in your innermost being? You’re moving into a two year time of tremendous personal understanding. Meaningful conversations with others can be life-changing and pivotal now. (Big stuff, seriously!) You’re willing to go to great lengths to connect with mentors and teachers and seek the knowledge you desire. Key relationships both personal and professional might go through a few growing pains. You’re getting more in touch with your value system. If others don’t appreciate your position or are not willing to see things from your point of view you’re likely to make a stand. This might come as a surprise to others since they’re accustomed to you being so easy-going!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Key relationships and one-to-one encounters with others become a strong focus, Capricorn. You’re encouraged to thoroughly examine your own position in relationships (business and personal alike) and also consider the needs and motivations of the other party. The more aware you are of your intentions the better the working dynamic between yourself and others. (Your moral compass is getting razor sharp.) If you already have a strong personality, others might find you intimidating this summer. Be sure to throw a little sugar on your words. (Smile and the world smiles with you.) On the other hand, if you’re more reserved by nature, you’re more likely to stand up for your ambitions now. Good! Regardless of your demeanor, if there are any glass ceilings to push through, this is the time to do it!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You’re ready to get more organized across the board, Aquarius. This is an excellent time for upgrading or on-the-job training. It’s also a great time to pick up some extra shifts and get a second job if need be. Make hay while the sun shines right? Even though you’re going to be busy this summer you’re still going to find some time to play! Workplace romances as well as festivities with colleagues will make things that much more exciting. Married Aquarians are receptive to their partner’s needs making this a good time for communication. Major joint decisions such as tying the knot, or purchasing property together are likely. Your Aquarian freedom loving nature is ready for some down-home commitment!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

It’s an inspired and sensual summer ahead, Pisces!  This is a cosmically charged time for all forms of creativity and self-expression. Put aside some time for your artistic hobbies and your personal interests. If others want to join in, hey-  the more the merrier! However, if your efforts to support others push your own interests to the side, you might not reap the true benefits of this time. (Don’t forget your boundaries, dear Pisces.) The desire to get outside and commune with nature will also be strong this summer. Mars is making a sweet aspect to your sign supporting you to feel more energetic and enthusiastic. Your libido is running quite high too! You are likely to attract a lover where there’s a powerful physical chemistry. Enjoy!
