Some of the biggest astrological transits of the year are happening this week. Mars connects harmoniously with Neptune on Monday, while beneficent Jupiter moves into the earthy sign of Taurus on Tuesday. Then Mars opposes Pluto on Saturday, and the sun moves into Gemini on Sunday.


Aries — You can concentrate on your own inner life early in the week and get a deep sense of being your whole self. Starting on Tuesday, your money sector gets a boost from Jupiter, bringing luck and expanded opportunities for earning. Be aware that this is a temporary “easy come, easy go” situation and so take advantage of it while you can. On Saturday, your ruling planet Mars moves into the sign of Leo and aspects powerful Pluto. This configuration lights up your creative self-expression and builds your confidence. Be mindful of over-confidence creating power struggles with friends.


Taurus — On Tuesday, expansive Jupiter is moving into your sign for about a year. This is the beginning of a major cycle of growth in your life and should make you feel pretty fabulous. You will get a taste of what you can really accomplish and make a good first impression on people. A major shift in energy happens this weekend, with your home and family getting much of your attention for a while. On Sunday, you’ll be able to find the things that you truly value and create a more secure environment for yourself.


Gemini — Friends notice that you have a certain Je ne sais quoi early in the week. You have a mysterious lucky streak that is based on your ability to put ego aside and empathetically reach out to others who need your help. With the strength of your convictions inspiring you, you can make powerful changes in the world around you without any selfish motives. On the weekend, you move forward with confidence and more strength than you realized you have. Keep an eye on any haters but don’t let them slow you down. You are a shining star.


Cancer — This week, you realize that your future is brighter than you ever would have guessed.

Look back on your past behavior to see where you have undone your own good intentions, so that you can learn from earlier mistakes.


Leo — You will get big results for your efforts with your career, reputation and social status this week. As long as you don’t brag or become overly bossy, the gods will smile on your ambitions. You have confidence and will get the opportunity to show the world what you can do now. How you handle the inevitable resistance to so much progress will determine the ultimate outcome.

You are focused on partnerships and are feeling optimistic about relationships while you have an urge for independence and individuality within your relationships.
