Saturn, the planet of whips and chains, finally redirects this week after a four month retrograde. The world shifts. You find that some things will now fall nicely into place while new challenges may bubble to the fore. Choose your punishment from a glorious array of possibilities you naughty thing!

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Relationships may go through a period of increased stress but also some much needed review. Aries need to reassess what they want and do not want in a partnership. Those Rams on the hoof may go through several versions of the same song and dance before they learn to tango. Find your personal beat. Before you know it you will have your pick of the dance floor.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans will never work harder with less payoff now. But before you resign yourself to resignation, think about how much you can learn during this informative period. This is the time to keep your pencils sharp and your erasers handy. Put in a little sweat equity and before you know it you will be on top of the heap. Uh, which heap is that?
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Creativity will be more perspiration than inspiration at this time but sweat is needed to get the little details done. Geminis may want to soar with the eagles but will have to content themselves with riding the bus with the rest of us. Never fear, you will have quite a few laughs along the way. That is if you do not take yourself too seriously. Ahem.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers begin to feel that relatives don’t understand them. Unspoken problematic issues suddenly are shouted. So be it. Expect to grapple with what you want vs what is expected of you. It feels like one thing after another but it will be an excellent time to clear the debris and dump the garbage. Think of how nice your personal space will look when you are done.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Can’t think of the right thing to say? Think that your opinions are not worth the breath? You may think that it is best to keep your pearls of wisdom to yourself for a while. But this will be a mistake. Leos are apt to feel that they do not quite measure up but you will soon find that not only do you measure up admirably, you are quite a ruler.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos can regain their considerable charisma but unfortunately may begin to feel that they don’t have enough dough to grease their wheel. If it is not one thing it is another! The next few months will teach you the upside of examining the bottom line. You may become very well endowed after all... or find a benefactor who can help you feather your nest.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Prepare for a chance to really show the world what you can do, Libra. This new phase of your life may find you chaffing at the bit to try some new stuff but I recommend that you do your homework before you strut it around for others to view. Once you are learned and wise, you will succeed beyond your wildest dreams. How wild can you get?
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Scorpios may feel some low level stress at this time. Where is it coming from? Hard to tell. The secret of success in this stressful period is to work on improving your karma by volunteering for a worthy charity. Your efforts may not be fully recognized by mere mortals but there are a few gods and goddesses up there taking notes and paying attention.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Sagittarians begin to take stock of certain friendships. Do you really know who is in your close confidence circle? The clouds of deception part and a bit of sunlight peeks through. There may be a few bugs who need to be dispatched. Avoid feeling too lonely and out of sorts by joining new clubs, seeking new associations and making new brilliant connections.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
While professional accolades tended to rain down from above, expect a bit of a drought as even your strongest corporate efforts seem a bit dry. Capricorns should use the time to review their accomplishments, consolidate and therefore strengthen their power base and hone their skills. Hard work catapults you up. Lazy ones warm the couch.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
There will be the temptation to stay close to home. As your attitude puts a crimp in any travel plans. Favorite places seem off limits, travel has its stresses and strains. But this is no time to play it safe, Aquarius. You may feel a little constrained but you know that it is time to hoist your flag and wave it in faraway lands. Spread the word....among other things.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces are not often the most sensual of folks and now you may feel a bit more like a damp dishrag than hot patoot. Your best moves are when you decide to leave and explore other stimuli. However all is not lost; this is a great time to do a little self reflection and hone those dull edges into something sharp and snappy. Hey watch where you point that thing!
