"Go, wind, to wind, there turn and change together.
My love with words and errors still she feeds,
But edifies another with her deeds."
(Troilus in Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida [V.iii.110-2])
It's that Virgo time of the year again, as the Sun is slowly creeping past a really sensitive point in every Virgo's chart. To make matters worse, we're all just coming off of a nasty Pluto square the Sun thing. Looks like the Republicans might win. Then again, there's always hope in this mud slinging contest. For less rhetoric and more straight astrological news, keep your computer tuned to the channel with all the news that's fit to print. Updates at once, too!
Aries: I'll bet you are starting to get tired of the song and dance skit that I do about work, "You've got lots of work heading your way; be glad that you're an Aries...." See? Two steps to the right, dip, then two steps to the left, sway, it's all so nice and choreographed. And that's what your life feel like right now, as if it were choreographed. Work still seems to be eating up too much of your time, but you'll survive in a fine fashion.
Taurus: This is a good week for you Taurus types because you've been waiting for a period of time in which many of aspects of your life start to run smoothly. For some strange reason, the idea of children keeps popping up this week. Since the word "children" can encompass a rather broad range, I would tend to look at this as if you are making, getting, having, or looking after children. And this is most pronounced this week. In any case, it's a good week, and you feel better than you have in a long time.
Gemini: We move from a good period of time into a less than wonderful period of time as work frustrations start to plague you. You will find that one of the Gemini's 43 voices is being told to shut up. While this wouldn't normally be a problem, there is an inherent frustration which can rise this week from that poor single voice being told to be quiet. The trick at a time like this is to maintain one's sense of integrity and realize that the poor Gemini will be allowed to shine in the future. This week's frustration will pass.
Cancer: Love is in the air, in truly big way. The problem you got this week is that you are likely as not to be caught in a fantasy dream land, and when you do get caught, just to make the whole situation worse, you will have your short down around your ankles. Now this doesn't have to happen. If you can keep a tight rein on reality, and not spend too much time day-dreaming, you might avoid this unfortunate experience. Please tell me I was not right about this one.
Leo: Leo is a fire sign, in traditional Western Astrology, and this fire indicates a high degree of passion. Lots of Leo's are passionate. There is also another problem with it, though, and poor Leo is a fixed sign, too. This week, besides making money, it is a time to be careful about rash and sudden decisions. Impulses are not the same thing as an intuitive insight. This is not a good week to stand up in the fishing boat. In fact, as much as you want to rock the boat, this ain't a good week for any sudden and impetuous ideas.
Virgo: I'll give you a hint because you've been nice to me: there is an upcoming event in Virgo that is going to make you unhappy. It's the Mercury Retrograde thing, and the problem is that it hits you real hard because in some books, Mercury is your "ruler" which means it has a lot a more effect when it does its tailspin in your sign. My prediction is that you are already feeling this way right now. Get ready for the real stuff to hit the fan, and remember that whatever hits the fan is never evenly distributed.
Libra: There looks like there is a sudden upswing in your popularity right about now. Actually, this effect may have been slowly building over a period of time, but you will no doubt notice this week. There is one minor and irritating problem, and that's pesky mercury doing his retrograde thing coming up. The problem is that he starts his backward spin in YOUR sign, so you feel like you are a bit of a victim of the whims of the stars, the odd gods of the galaxy, and whatever else you might ascribe luck and chance to. The best thing to do is to carry on as if you didn't notice this small interruption, and continue on as if there were no problems at all.
Scorpio: Talk about some one with luck! This is not, by any stretch of the imagination, considered a lucky time in traditional astrology. However, from my own observations, you Scorpio's and myself might be on the verge of a big breakthrough because you seem to be having the best luck possible. Maybe it's because every one else is doing so poorly, or maybe there are some other difficulties out there. You should ride this good wave as far as it will take you. In fact, the waves are so nice, you might want to consider surf fishing.
Sagittarius: There are some needs that you have for greater emotional security which aren't being met this week. In fact, you might become a little strident in giving voice to your needs for this security. Shopping is not really an answer to the question, either. Sure, a little retail therapy can sublimate you problems for a short time, but it doesn't answer the long term need. By the end of the week, you should be back in rare form, but I would try and be cognizant that there are some big doin's up in the sky, and you are going to be face to face with BIG changes pretty soon.
Capricorn: We're still doing the tough money thing this week. Tough Money sounds like a self-help encounter group thing, sort of like Tough Love, only, this is financial and real, not a group lead by rent-a-friend. Here's the scoop: the stars say that you are about to be double-crossed in a business deal. Since that might be a little too specific, just be careful about little details, like your paycheck, and make sure that all the deductions your employer takes are legitimate. If this isn't the case, I'm sure you will be kind enough to let me know.
Aquarius: Remember that one big earthquake? Well, there is going to be a similar experience in your own, personal life, and it will have the same effect, that is, one of great upheaval and confusion followed by a period of rebuilding your life. and it happens right about now. Like this week. As in now. You will probably start off the week a little blue, and then this quake-like experience hits, and you will be radically transformed by the event. Let me know about it.
Pisces: One great idea for this week would be: home furnishings. You need some new things around the house. Grab last week's Sunday paper and start looking through the ads. I sure wish I could get a commission on the money you are about to spend. You will find, though, that you need to be quick about this because you want to get the purchases out of the way before the planets fall in evil disarray next week.
