March 21 - April 20

Your inborn drive to be always pushing ahead receives added impetus during this week.  Your energy levels will be high and you will find much scope for taking fresh initiatives and getting fast results - something that always makes you feel good.  Your communications are well lit up but be very diplomatic.


April 21st - May 21 

You must be careful with money, joint resources, taxes etc., anything linked with your solar second and eighth houses.  This area of your life is affected by retrograde Mars.  It will be important to watch spending and pay attention to fine print when making purchases or commitments. Though, this is a good time for friendships and networking. Your social life is picking up pace.


May 22 - June 21 

Plans can change suddenly, but the diversion you take now may be helpful overall. There may be some drama regarding a relationship or a significant discovery about one. It's not the time to push yourself too hard with Mars and Saturn, retrograde in your opposing sign. You should try to get away from mundane realities of life, but choose any escape routes wisely.


June 22nd - July 22

Family life appeals greatly now, and you're in need of feeling secure and safe. Mars retrograde will affect you in the areas of creativity, children, recreation, entertainment, hobbies, and romance because Mars rules these areas of your solar chart. This may be a good time to re-assess a love affair.


July 23 - August 23

There can be some difficult matters surrounding your work and health to deal with. Energy may not be at its best and you could be feeling sluggish or bored.  Mercury continues to transit your solar tenth house. Career matters are busy at this time and it's a good time to analyze your work tasks and to streamline them or improve your skills.


August 24 - September 23

You could be feeling happy, optimistic, and more confident, especially as your goals are within reach. Others are likely to find you inspiring  and they also see you in a good light. Now that Mars is retrograde and for you, this occurs in your solar 4th house of domestic affairs. Watch for passive-aggressive behaviour and patience is also necessary now. Love will also blow hot and cold.


September 24 - October 23rd

You may find the pace of your daily life challenging this week, however responsibilities on the home front can be daunting, and finding the time to run errands and handle paperwork may be a challenge. There can also be some disagreements with siblings, neighbours, or acquaintances. Some of you could experience delays or challenges with education or short inner city travel plans. 


October 24 - November 22

You are more likely to pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms, aiming to improve and enhance your attractiveness as Venus and Mercury are transiting your opposite sign. Try to steer clear of differences of opinion and other conflicts that threaten to be unprofessional. 


November 23 - December 21 

Watch for pent-up anger and passive-aggressiveness in your partnerships.  Occurring in your solar first house, Mars retrograde cycle is very up close and personal! Fortunately, Mercury goes direct enhancing your overall communications. You'll have the most success if you bring more creativity to your daily routine or work.


December 22 - January 20

Living in the moment, and enjoying it, without too many expectations is your best bet right now, as long as you don't go overboard. Work is strong now, and you're likely to immerse yourself in it.  Private affairs and solitary work might need to be put on the back burner. Any fears or anxieties need to be dealt with as concerns of the past could be part of the picture.


January 21 - February 19

Mercury and Venus are transiting your Solar 4th house of home and family. You are likely to  find much joy and pleasure  in your family connections and   experiences during this transit. Opportunities to buy or sell real estate for financial gain may present themselves. Home improvements and renovations are also favoured.


February 20 - Mar 20

Career developments grab your attention this month, and unexpected events trigger new directions. A more creative direction is likely, and you'll find that it suits you very well. Brand-new initiatives are not favoured generally speaking with Mars retrograde. This is a good time for re-assessment and fine tuning anything that you have already started.
