Hello to readers in Endeavor!
The planets continue to align in dynamic, industrious formations this week, and the routines of daily life continue to reflect their celestial resolve. Anticipate plenty of planetary support for accomplishing your goals or all your tireless work helping others to accomplish theirs. The good news is that you can also expect tangible results for your efforts. But don’t worry that the week is all-work-and-no-play. Flirtatious interactions spice up what might otherwise be deemed a highly ambitious atmosphere. And those flirtations give the week a sense of balance. But not normalcy—normalcy isn’t returning anytime soon. Nevertheless, there are real opportunities for getting a steadier grip on the day-to-day, opportunities that should give nervous systems a chance to relax.
The determination to work hard and the consolidation of efforts are attributable to a trine between a Mercury/Mars conjunction, in Taurus, and Pluto, in Capricorn. This combination of influences indicates indefatigable energy, coupled with a desire for success. Jupiter squares that Mercury/Mars conjunction, adding the potential to take on too much, if only because the potential for being overly optimistic drives the mind, symbolized by Mercury, and the muscles, symbolized by Mars. Taurus as well as Capricorn are practical Earth Signs, which minimizes the risk of being rash. But given that Jupiter is tightening its trine to Uranus, optimistic, impulsive, and grand schemes are probable. Think big…but not so big that you run out of steam before you start.
Venus, the goddess of love, beauty, and true value, is in Gemini, where she continues her sextile to Jupiter, a convivial interaction that supports creativity and fosters gregarious alliances. Venus also sextiles Uranus, in Aries, an alliance that signals the desire to flirt with all sorts of pursuits from romance to creativity to causes. And her current pursuits aren’t necessarily trivial, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself occupied with ideological concerns.
This week, seize as many moments of astral stability as possible. We are still dealing with powerful waves of change, waves that have destabilized daily lives, individual and collective. Reach for strength, but not just physical endurance. Reach for spiritual strength that makes sense in the midst of change. Reach for strength that encompasses the highest ideals of tolerance, compassion, and non-violence. And then bring those ideals down to Earth through your choices to live as if all life matters.

Aries March 21-April 19
It’s another week of opportunities to make actual financial gains. There’s no guarantee you will win the Lottery, although buying one ticket isn’t a bad idea. There are simply plenty of indicators that current choices will have beneficial outcomes.
Taurus April 20-May 20
You are in the spotlight, so don’t hesitate to make the most of this opportunity. Feed your body, mind, and spirit, by concentrating your time and energy on whatever endeavors bring you the greatest joy. And don’t worry about time and money—just let happiness guide your decisions.
Gemini May 21-June 21
Stay open to spontaneous conversations with friends and associates about how to handle certain partnership issues, personal as well as professional. It’s not that something is “wrong.” This is simply a chance to weed out any cracks in the foundation that could cause problems later.
Cancer June 22-July 22
Positive alliances with powerful associates are possible, but try to avoid magical thinking that sees anyone other than you as the key to your success. Remember, the people we align with are simply a reflection of our own potential.
Leo July 23-August 22
Holding back won’t be possible—you’re simply channeling too much energy to pretend to be anything other than yourself. So rather than try to contain your ambition and drive, let it flow, and if you encounter any rough spots, do your best to skillfully refine those areas.
Virgo August 23-September 22
Relying on your intuition is mostly a matter of filtering out wishful thinking and applying common sense. This sounds simple, but it requires rigorous self-examination and the discipline to put aside personal preferences. Try it—you might be surprised by how much you enjoy this process.
Libra September 23-October 22
You’re on a great and powerful mandala of change, and you have a couple of choices about how to handle the power of this wheel: (1) Try to nudge it in a specific direction, or (2) surrender to the process. There’s no “right” answer, but allowing things to unfold might take less effort.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
The emphasis is on partnerships, personal and professional, and while some of what you may encounter could be challenging, the positive impulse of this process outweighs the negatives. Be bold, brave, and direct: Say what you need to be happy and invite others to do the same.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
There’s an abundance of opportunities for you to make grounded progress in just about any and every endeavor you are engaged in. So put your mind as well as your muscle into the projects that matter most to you and you’ll be more than satisfied with the results.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
Put on your creative thinking cap and be prepared to channel a wealth of ideas. Then spend some time contemplating what ideas have the most meaning for you. While you may not be able to delve into every project, you will be able to identify where to best spend your time and energy.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
Answer that strong call to hunker down and spend your time and energy making home improvements. Just keep in mind that some of these renovations could include internal adjustments, such as increasing or refining your meditation practice.
Pisces February 19-March 20
Expect conversations with significant others about significant issues, and while some of these exchanges might be difficult, the overall outcome could be quite liberating. Be clear and direct about what your needs are, and encourage loved ones to do the same.
