Searching for that special someone? Once your Mars ruler enters your Libra house
of partners on the 19th, it should be a lot easier to focus on forging a suitable
alliance. No more wondering how close to Virgo perfection the candidate must come.
Rams born in mid-April may get an unexpected affirmation from the positive fire
trine between the life-giving Leo sun and regenerative Pluto in Sagittarius. Is
a creative project back on track? Will your trip be extended? Were you taken off
the waitlist and officially approved?
Taurus Taurus pundits and publicists could get a leg up from the supportive trine between Mercury and Jupiter, the planets governing the written and spoken word, along with the folks who control media outlets. There may even be an opening big enough to get your foot in the door. Every Bull can benefit from the even more fortunate trine between artistic Venus ruler in Virgo and generous Jupiter in Capricorn, the other reality-based Earth signs. Look for an opportunity during the games people play, maybe via an attractive teammate.
Gemini Twins who live mainly in their heads tend to be less practical than the rest. That's why the merger on Friday of your Mercury ruler and constructive Saturn in earthy Virgo could serve as stabilizing influence. Their close connection can also increase your interest in a family or real estate matter. Be sure to factor in the promise of success tendered when Mercury and magnanimous Jupiter form a rewarding trine on Sunday. If that's not enough info to juggle, Mercury further complicates the matter during an either/or opposition with erratic Uranus on Thursday.
Cancer June Crabs should watch out for an irate sibling or neighbor holding a grudge. What promise hasn't been kept, what suggestion wasn't adopted? Attaining perfection (or a reasonable facsimile) won't be much of an issue after assertive Mars leaves Virgo on the 19th. Making peaceful overtures, as is the Libra custom, might be equally stressful, but not for long. The July-born continue to deal with money matters, some of which need further clarification before they can be resolved. Ask the pertinent questions midweek.
Leo Few planetary aspects are as welcome as a rewarding trine between Venus and Jupiter, the "fortunate" planets of the crew. That Venus is currently in your Virgo house of valuables could tweak your anticipation of the goodies that may come your way this weekend. Luck can be a significant factor, so if you're in the vicinity of a raffle ticket, buy one. Ditto for casinos and bingo halls. The partial lunar eclipse may also be a factor, since it's your sun ruler that's diluting the dose of full moon magic we expect to be exposed to.
Virgo It's not going to happen again for a long while, so be sure to relish every drop of good fortune you may get while lucky, lovable Venus in Virgo perfects its rewarding trine to expansive Jupiter in your Capricorn house of romance, creativity and children. Sure, there might be more benefits when your Mercury ruler trines Jupiter on Sunday, but Venus is all about love, not scoring points, per se. On Tuesday energetic, occasionally abrasive Mars leaves your sign, not to return for another two years. And next Friday, solar Virgo begins a four-week gig glorifying your essence.
Libra If Lions and Crabs can benefit from the wonderfulness of the Venus-Jupiter trine, imagine what it'll do for you. Although your Venus ruler forms this rewarding aspect twice a year, this week it favors a family or real estate matter that's been a concern, probably an extra expense as well, since 2008 began. For now, you don't have to do a thing but admire the ease with which the pieces fall into place. However, once take-action Mars enters Libra on the 19th, you may want to adopt more of a "hands-on" approach.
Scorpio The full moon eclipse this weekend accentuates the Leo-Aquarius axis of your solar chart, the signs governing your career midheaven and what's going on at your house, within the family circle. Since Neptune's predilection for wishful thinking is permeating the atmosphere at home, try to clarify the situation there before the enthusiastic Leo sun cajoles your Pluto co-ruler into spending a lot of money for not a valid enough reason. But if a high-spirited celebration can be justified, this would be a good week to throw one.
