Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
Take a deep breath and get ready for a quickening as Mars, your Ruling Planet, moves forward and puts many projects on a fast track. The best way to acclimate to the new pace is to first prioritize your goals and then to prioritize your time and energy around those goals.
Taurus April 20-May 20
Mars Direct stimulates stagnant partnerships in need of revitalization, and as it does, you’re likely to feel the need to make a new kind of contact. Don’t be shy about shifting your partnership priorities. I’m not suggesting a divorce. I’m simply advising you to stay open to a new attitude.
Gemini May 21-June 21
As Mars moves forward, you’ll need to make way for powerful surges inspiring you toward greater awareness regarding health issues, specifically how to take better care of yourself. This is important, given that Mars’ momentum also increases your workload.
Cancer June 22-July 22
In addition to taking care of your physical world with greater care, Mars Direct could reveal your romantic tendencies as well as your determination to turn infatuation into action. Have at it—just be sure to stay present for the wide range of feelings that are likely to emerge.
Leo July 23-August 22
Mars Direct signals an end of what’s best described as an extended period of personal hibernation—and now you’re moving out into the world and there’s no stopping you. So rather than resist, prepare. Get a haircut, a new outfit, and a positive attitude that engages life with joy.
Virgo August 23-September 22
Be prepared for lots of issues to rise to the surface of consciousness as Mars’ forward motion stimulates a need to clean out and refresh areas of life best served by activity. You’ll need strength to handle this process because it requires taking an internal inventory of what needs to shift for you to experience greater personal peace.
Libra September 23-October 22
Mars Direct provides the energy to straighten out financial matters, particularly those related to partnerships, personal as well as professional. This process is supported by an even deeper theme—yes, something is more important than money. It’s a chance to build solid self-esteem.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
As Mars moves forward, you’re likely to experience renewed energy about making progress in all the areas of your life where you’ve felt tired or where your efforts wouldn’t make a difference. It’s time to dispel that lethargy and get busy revitalizing those places with a new attitude.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
Mars Direct shakes off that tendency to brood like a dog shakes off water after a swim. The difference between you and Fido is the ability to get those around you wet. Rather than dump your concerns on others, use this forward motion to regain your normally positive disposition.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
Mars’ forward motion invites you to analyze your involvement in community activities. Pay attention to what inspired you, deepened your commitment or put you off participating at all. This is an opportunity to know yourself and your needs at a deeper level—make the most of it.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
Use Mars’ forward motion to clean up the lingering details of various professional obligations, and then hold on tight as it gains momentum and moves you into increased activities in your community. You don’t have to join an organization—you have the skill to ride this wave on your own.
Pisces February 19-March 20
Take a deep breath, and as Mars Direct expands your horizons, allow yourself to take in the new view. Yes, some of what you’ll see could be disconcerting, but don’t let that stop you from also beholding the beauty. Stay open to this new perspective, and those around you will also benefit from your expanded field of vision.
