STARCAST: Current planetary upheavals are sure to affect us mere humans. This week, as Mercury bumps heads with Uranus, is ripe for jumping to the wrong conclusions. Mercury’s placement in stubborn Taurus further stirs the stew. Once you’ve made a choice, it’ll be darn near impossible to change it.
ARIES (March 20-April 18)
Saturn remains a control freak where advancement is concerned. You may be forced to take off the pink gloves as the question arises: “Who’s on top?” Despite rumors to the contrary, power for it’s own sake isn’t your thing. Of course, that doesn’t mean you want people power tripping on YOU.
TAURUS (April 19-May 19)
Last year about this time a trio of planets exerted a positive influence on travel, publishing, and higher education. Did you catch the brass ring? The carousel’s coming around again. Mega opportunities abound, but you’ll have to move your cute little buns to connect with them.
GEMINI (May 20-June 19)
Two planetary biggies-Saturn and Pluto–struggle for control of your hormone house. While your love
life is fantasy driven, you long for security. Shared resources play a part. Timing is everything. Take the high road as you wait for an emotional whirlwind to settle.
CANCER (June 20-July 21)
Saturn is a heavy handed influence in your one-on-one house, hardly the housemate for power hungry Pluto. Your mission is to detach yourself from your desires. Well, at least one desire. Karma is such a drag-most particularly with volatile Uranus presiding in your friendship house.
LEO (July 22-Aug. 21)
Pluto and Saturn do a little bondage number in your work house. Saturn cracks the whip, while Pluto reminds that feelings matter too. There’s more to life than big cheese status. Sharing the bragging rights is the better part of valor. Most particularly if the derriere you save is your own.
VIRGO (Aug. 22-Sept. 21)
No Virgo’s an island-surely not you who values both creativity and romance. Currently, powerful Pluto gives the nod to both, but then you have Saturn, Mr. Rules and Order, putting his foot down. This week a playmate suggests a challenging opportunity.
LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 21)
Pushy Pluto and stern Saturn rendezvous in your root cellar. The issue involves family matters and/or real estate. You’ll need to work hard to achieve resolution. Creativity is the wild card. Play it right and rewards include a re-vitalized living space and strengthened family relationships.
SCORPIO (Oct. 22-Nov. 21)
A control freak tries to manipulate you just as a sexy someone beckons. Blame it on stern Saturn while tuning into Pluto (the power plant) who counsels: Keep communications clear and concise.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 20)
As Pluto and Saturn form an unholy union in your money house, you sense that at least one aspect of your life rests in the hands of someone else. Financial issues feel strained and strange. A clue: fulfillment will come through higher channels. Think philosophical, maybe even spiritual.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 18)
Pluto and Saturn take center stage in your sign. Pluto may have hero potential but Saturn’s hardly a director’s dream for the fairy godperson role. Though the tough love nanny continues to teach your master class, this week offers a glimpse of future stardom.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 19-Feb. 17)
With Pluto and Saturn sitting in your house of secrets, mixed allegiances pull like taffy. You Waterbearers have tales to tell but should know better. This week an amorous connection-possibly from the past-offers a surprising venue for your distinctive talents. Just remember, Big Brother never sleeps.
PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19)
Be careful what you wish for this week. The cosmic merger of Saturn and Pluto highlights long term goals. Focus on what you want, what you really, really want. Then call in some markers. Friends can play a large part in bringing a dream to life.
MINERVA’S MAIL BAG:
I’m a Taurus who works for a Pisces and a Gemini. I get along well with both of these guys and am wondering what the astrological take is on these relationships.
I think you’re a dream team in the making. Gemini would benefit from your focus but brings social savvy and mental stimulation to the stew.
Pisces is a wonderful addition. This player is a dreamer, you’re a supreme realist who can turn fantasy into something tangible, workable and salable. Looks like the start of something great for all of you.
May the Stars shine on you.
