Saturn is station direct, Mars is still out of bounds but just entered Aquarius, Venus is newly arrived in Scorpio and the sun is still in Virgo.

Aries (March 21 - April 19): Your ruling planet just dipped into Aquarius which, combined with being out-of-bounds, means you might get the urge to climb on top of buildings or cross the yellow tape. So, in the words of a Gemini, “Have fun, stay safe, don’t do drugs, use protection,” and you’ll be fine.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Neck cramps? Try meditation or yoga. Doesn’t hurt to give it a shot, even if nothing hurts. Things are going to get busier and more stressful from here on out, so make sure you’re taking care of yourself in whatever ways work best for you. In the words of a yogi master, “find what feels good.”

Gemini (May 21 - June 20): People keep trying to tell you what to do, write this essay, come to this meeting, buy me a pizza, go to the involvement fair, go to college, get a job, blah blah blah. Remember, they can tell you whatever they want, but you decide if you want to listen this week.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Don’t look at this week as a week; instead, look at it as seven individual days with seven different chances to be good or bad, productive or lazy, fun or boring, a day you remember or a day you forget.


Leo (July 23 - August 22): There may be a project you’ve been keeping on the back burner for a while - an art piece or a blog post or a short film or the design of widely marketable waterproof backpacks - but you tell yourself there’s no time, there’s not enough energy, it’s pointless. Well, you’re wrong, and this is a great week to realize that and get to work.


Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Carry an umbrella, leave some space open in your schedule, study your professors for tics (do they say “um” a lot?), give a compliment to the next person you see and play to your strengths while they’re super-strengths.


Libra (September 23 - October 22): Venus may have left your sign for Scorpio, but she’s still your ruling planet. Maybe your flirting is falling flat, so try a more personal approach in the world of romance this week. Even friendships can benefit from shedding the superficial.


Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): On Venus in Scorpio: Roses are red, / money is green, / but whether you’ll find either / remains to be seen.


Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): This Friday night is ‘bout to be lit, watch out man. The moon will be payin’ you a visit so consider this your nomination as team hype man.


Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Don’t let things become routine. Maybe you’re getting more adjusted to the semester and things are clicking into place, but don’t let that equal boring. Look out for chances to challenge monotony.


Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): You may feel at odds with the things around you this week, which shouldn’t be a new feeling for you. Energy will have you flying above all the storm clouds the rest of us will be dealing with. Don’t let this force distance, just enjoy the view.


Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Going with the flow is nice until you turn a river bend and find yourself facing a waterfall. You don’t need to know exactly what’s going to happen all the time, but maybe keep a map in your back pocket just in case.
