The dog days of summer heat up with lots of planetary movement. All personal planets change signs and some oppose retrograde outer planets. Actions can go into overdrive for the next few weeks, run amok and lead us into unalterable changes. Will it be a howl at the moon or dance under the stars? It’s your move.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Minor home-based decisions have mammoth repercussions in your long term plans and life mission. Move a couch and create a sinkhole. So my advice for any Aries who is hankering for domestic transition is to wait until the fall. Only then can you more easily accomplish what you initially set out to do without any surprising fallout. Meantime, enjoy the peace and quiet.TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Stray thoughts and minor comments resonate through the cosmos. This is great if you are interested in creating a ruckus but not so great if you want to quietly work behind the scenes. Taureans should keep their opinions to themselves for now. Think happy thoughts. You can unfurl your manifesto later this year and create a winter revolution.GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis may blow their carefully crafted budget now as their eyes (and desires) grow too big for their wallets. This can get you into a financial hole if you are not careful. Lovers and other hangers-on may make their demands, but that doesn’t mean that you have to agree to them. In fact, being a little thrifty now may offer more to spend later this year. CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
What is yours is yours and what is theirs is .... yours? Now, now Cancer. You can’t achieve balance in relationships if you are not willing to give a little. But giving up too much is not a good thing either. Your mission now is to achieve balance between the “I” and the “We”. Discover the connections as well as the individual needs. Achieve nirvana as the year progresses.LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Ongoing stress has a way of contributing to any of your physical ailments. This is the time to deal with the burden of any secrets or psychological baggage in your life. Leos always want to put on the very best face to the crowds. It is still possible to continue your big performance but at very least wrestle with your skeletons backstage. VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Friends can lead you into mischief if you heedlessly follow their lead. Lucky thing! Virgos may unwittingly go overboard in the thrill of the moment. Think before you leap and see if what pals do is something that you really want to do too. If not, go it alone. Even better, connect with new acquaintances or groups that give you something that pals can’t at this time. LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Your career commands center stage and seems to require all of your attention. The power brokers like what they see in you and opportunities open up before you. Jump into the shark tank with your harpoon, Libra, and go hunting. But too much focus on your professional path can make partners and family feel left out. Can you find time for both? Let’s just see.SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
You step into the global stage and are ready to create a big splash. But your words might be taken out of context and you may flub a vital point. There is no erase and re-record option here, Scorpio. So be very careful with what you say and how you say it, especially where it can land you in the deep end. Keep your thoughts fluid but don’t gush. SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Lovers and their demands may become more trouble and much more expensive than they’re worth at this time. Are you prepared to give in to every little whim? If so, be prepared to pay dearly for it. Otherwise be kind but firm. Sagittarians are advised to window shop rather than buy. Enjoy things in small bursts. Ah, isn’t that the way it always is?CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Relationships begin to consume you and you might change your entire outlook and life direction because of them. Try not to fall into someone else’s concept of who you should be. Retain your individuality and own sense of destiny and purpose. And most importantly, know yourself and what works best for you. There is time to be a pair. But a pair of what, Capricorn?AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Potholes in your job can cause unintended tumult when and where you least expect it. Things that you have put off doing and colleagues that you might have mentally written off, come back to bite you. But all is not late nights and weekends working back into any good graces, Aquarius. Redeem yourself with careful and calculate apple polishing. Rubadub!PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
What seems like carefree fun may lead to serious changes in the dynamics of certain friendships. Maybe you have out grown some pals. Or maybe your interests are taking a different direction. Whatever it is, be prepared to go out on your own and create new associations that are more in sync with your creative passions. Swim in new pools, Pisces..
