Dear Readers– Please visit the website of the National Blood Clot Alliance at StopTheClot.org to learn more about blood clots and when you might need to see a doctor about it.
Venus enters Gemini at 8:34 am Monday. Venus in Gemini is always the flirt, but with ruler Mercury retrograde in Gemini right now, a Twin might make some verbal missteps. Since Venus also rules cash and finances in general, Geminis might also make some errors in writing checks or figuring their personal accounts. Still, Venus in Gemini is famous for its wit and a lighthearted way of communicating. Gemini tends to be superficial in conversation, yet a mature Gemini is able to elevate the discussion to encompass hearing out others’ points of view. Gemini loves to discuss abstract ideas rather than how-to instructions. Famous people with Venus in Gemini include: Ringo Starr, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, William Shakespeare, Mary McCarthy, Benjamin Spock, and Franz Kafka.
Mars at 16 degrees Libra opposes Uranus in Aries at 4:25 am Wednesday. Mars opposite Uranus sounds pretty explosive to me, also pretty bad for purchases of mechanical objects such as cars, lawn mowers, etc. Many of us get ready to just about kick off the harness and run off for the greener pastures they’ve heard legends about. Sudden changes are possible or even probable, even emergency surgery may be in store for some of us. Between this transit and the Moon-Mercury conjunction on Thursday, people will be blurting out everything they have held inside for too long.
We have a New Moon at 5 degrees 37′ Cancer at 4:08 am Friday. It is accompanied by a Moon trine Neptune in Pisces. Neptune has a bad rep, but the trine may help some of us find kindred spirits who hold to the same ideals that you do. New Moons in Cancer tend to put the focus on family issues, family businesses, possibly an addition to the family or house. Your home becomes a focal point, either in terms of renovating, buying and selling, hosting more social events, or housing an exchange student or two.
Ceres and Vesta will be conjunct at 20 degrees Libra this week. These two asteroids have been slowly moving almost in lockstep thru Libra for quite a while, so you may not feel like anything special is happening. Couples may find they need to have some prolonged talks about where the relationship is going, or even seek out couples therapy. A lot of times Vesta will sacrifice their own happiness in a relationship, to the point of even letting the other person leave if they think they will be happier with someone else.

Readers can follow not only their Sun sign horoscope but also their Ascendant for further clues to how your week will develop. NOTE: some aspects are exact on a weekend but may find opportunity for expression on the Friday or Monday nearest the exact aspect. Times given are in Eastern Standard or Eastern Daylight Savings Time depending on the season.
ARIES – March 20-April 19 – The conjunction of Ceres and Vesta in your solar seventh house has extra oomph due to the angular placement; there is some chance you will be cast in a caregiver role, but more often this transit makes you too willing to sacrifice your own needs or break up with someone if the other expresses a wish for more freedom. If you believe that the other person is a good match for you, you will need to fight for this relationship, offer to go into couples therapy if necessary. Venus’ entry into your solar third house can bring more socializing, love notes, and appreciation of beauty in poetry or music.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from Sunday till Tuesday morning. Midday Sunday favors a pleasant swim among friends, or perhaps volunteering at a fund-raising event. Monday morning may be hard to face because you just see the piles of work to be done, but you can do it. Monday night is a carefree night on the town. Venus’ entry into your solar second house can bring in some cash or small prizes, so use it wisely. Best day may be Tuesday when a Moon-Venus conjunction on the cusp of your second house helps you find someone to trade favors with.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 7:06 am Tuesday till Thursday evening. Geminis get lots of promises of help Tuesday morning. Tuesday night might be filled with worries and anxious moments so do those little tricks you have to calm the butterflies. Wednesday afternoon may hold some high-spirited games with friends, but try not to get carried away with those tackles. Thursday morn starts off with a lot of chatter and calls right away. Venus’ entry into your sign on Monday ushers in a month of being kind to yourself with a salon visit or makeover.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – The Moon is back home in Cancer from 5:06 pm Thursday thru the end of the week. Friday morning may be a bit too dreamy; try to keep alert during your commute. Friday night you are bound and determined to get your to-do list done. You get good advice from an elder or an expert Saturday morning. On Saturday night you feel so darn optimistic and generous that you could just about give away the store; better let someone else look over contracts and such. Venus’ entry into your solar twelfth house puts your guardian angel on the job.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – Venus’ entry into your solar eleventh house can bring an invite to a class reunion or just good times with kindred spirits. Tuesday might be the best day to swap favors with a friend. Be especially careful driving or traveling on Wednesday due to the Mars-Uranus opposition in your travel houses. A professional associate may blurt out stuff about their feelings, making for an awkward exchange; let them vent, but do let them know that you are not their mom.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Venus’ entry into your solar tenth house can bring some real “employee appreciation” in the form of perks or performance bonuses; you might possibly invest in your own career by starting a business. Tuesday might be the best day to schmooze with the higher-ups at the company. Check your finances early Wednesday because the Mars-Uranus opposition might make electronic devices do wacky things. Your ruler Mercury goes direct next week so just hang in there; I know you hate it when errors crop up in all sorts of paperwork.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Venus’ entry into your solar ninth house can bring a summer vacation to scenic places like Mount Rushmore, a national park or seashore, or a Greek island; take a loved one along, or add someone along the way. Tuesday might be the best day to get a suggestion on where to take that vacation or where to book your hotel. Be especially safety-conscious on Wednesday due to the Mars-Uranus opposition on the angles.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Venus’ entry into your solar eighth house can magnetize some money into joint accounts or investments; also you look good in that Little Black Dress for your heavy dates. Tuesday might be the best day to find a new LBD. Co-ruler Mars makes an opposition to Uranus Wednesday so be extra safety-conscious. The New Moon on Friday falls in compatible Cancer; you may locate advisors or professional people who hold to the same ideals that you do.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Venus’ entry into your solar seventh house puts you on your best behavior with people you want to charm, and maybe an actual introduction to Mr Right or Ms Right. Tuesday might be the best day to find someone to swap favors with. Your mate blurts out her feelings and needs on Thursday; try to be as accommodating as possible and yet try to set up regular meetings for discussing family matters so resentments do not build up.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Venus’ entry into your solar sixth house can make you start a new diet so you can look good at the beach, adoption of a new pet, and in general a better spirit of cooperation with coworkers. Tuesday might be the best day to visit the local pet shelter. Be especially safety-conscious on Wednesday due to the Mars-Uranus opposition on the angles. Friday’s New Moon energizes your mate, who may become more involved in local politics or school issues.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Venus’ entry into your solar fifth house can bring lots of flirting and possibly some beautiful expressions of your creativity. Tuesday might be the best day to find a discounted class in painting, dancing, music, or in a craft. Be especially careful driving or traveling on Wednesday due to the Mars-Uranus opposition in your travel houses. On Thursday one of the children may blurt out their real feelings, and may feel like their needs are not being met; give them practice in managing some of their own choices.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – Venus’ entry into your solar fourth house can spur you into a major renovation or redecoration of the home; you might also find things go more smoothly with parents or other family members. Tuesday might be the best day to get treated to brunch or dinner. Check your finances early Wednesday because the Mars-Uranus opposition might make electronic devices do wacky things, or some debts may come due.
