The next phase of astrology is all about partnerships and making them action-oriented rather than all talk. Mars is in Gemini until August 2nd, meaning communication will be more concise, more direct, and we’ll be less likely to start conflicts with our loved ones. And with Cancer coming into play, things at home will be perfectly cozy. Just the kind of awesome summer vibe we need after such a hectic spring!
Go forth and read the details on your sun sign! If you know your rising sign, read that too.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19)
Your Weekly Mantra: Be a steady fire.
With your ruling planet Mars in Gemini, you’ll finally be ready to listen and engage with other people, instead of feeling like you are just spouting off all the time. Because guess what, Aries, you were. Luckily, all your friends and family are used to hearing you give your “opinion.”
These days you will finally be afforded the gift of a little introspection and with that you will be able to connect better with the people around you.
When the Sun hits Cancer in your fourth house of roots, you will feel a little restless not doing your average fire-driven Aries activities. You can do all those things, but in the house! Paint, redesign, garden. Whatever you decide to do will be done with inevitable Aries fire and panache.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20)
Your Weekly Mantra: You’re in the money.
Time to stop noshing, lazing about, and making out. Taurus, you need to get yourself a little money. Luckily, with passionate Mars manning your second house of money, you might actually be able to get yourself a job. And you will probably find this money through someone in your social life.
You’ll be all about love too with Cancer in your cheeky third house. Even if you aren’t the one hooking up, you will have fun mixing and matching your less love lucky friends. It might be time for you to take a break from being the stubborn center of attention on the sensual turf. And right now, you are OK with that.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Your Weekly Mantra: Get in the driver’s seat.
You’ve been up, down, spun around and now you are ready to just jet straight forward in one direction. With Mars in Gemini, this is your time of personal power and drive. Get it done before August 2nd and relish this time while you have it. This time is all about you.
Whether being all about you means that you travel the world, start a new business, or ask out that crush you have hanging around, Mars is a super stimulating planet, and even if you just sit around, things will start happening. They have no choice but to. You might as well make them what you want.
This is also a good time to start thinking about money matters. Just make sure with all this “responsible” and “assertive” planning you don’t forget to give the things your personal life a soft touch.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Your Weekly Mantra: Ch-ch-ch-changes.
For Cancer this is a huge time of change, although with your little crabby claws gripped firmly around the prize, you won’t go down without a fight. Try not to fight it, because you need this excitement to change the things in your life you do not like. It might be hard, but it will eventually be a good step for you.
If there is something in your life you want to change, just do it. Move houses, change jobs, color your hair.
Even if it hurts, you are better off doing the things that are true to yourself and represent your core self rather than doing the things that keep you happy in the moment, but that are a total misrepresentation of your personality.
Leo (July 23-Aug 22)
Your Weekly Mantra: Power up.
You haven’t been wielding all the power lately, Leo, and that’s been making the power-hungry lion inside you mightily mad. With Mars camping out for six weeks in your house of collaboration, you will be dealing with this “superiority complex freaks” way more than usual. Be the leader that you are and show the people around you what real power looks like.
This is your last month of this years’ zodiac cycle, so make it count. What didn’t work out this year? Give yourself a little time for introspection while you are also trying to teach those around you lessons and figure out what you do and don’t need.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sep 22)
Your Weekly Mantra: You gotta give some to get some.
It’s been rough going in 2011, Virgo, but this year is finally starting to look up for you, especially on the career front. You’ve learned a lot about going out of your comfort zone in order to impress people and even make money. Mars is going to give you that much needed boost that you might have normally been too shy to take.
And with Cancer in your house of networking, you will be able to finally go out and not feel a fool, because you are very comfortable playing the motherly, warm role amongst the scattered energy of your work peers.
They will look to you for guidance and courage, which you will be more than happy to finally give. Especially since you seem to be getting a little back.
Libra (Sep 23-Oct 22)
Your Weekly Mantra: Looking For Love In Faraway Places.
You are still wanting to leave town, Libra, and maybe you have had the opportunity. If you can’t go on the vacations of your dreams all the time, try satiating your travel bug with overseas romances or even learning how to cook a specific exotic cuisine.
Something is coming into you life, whether it be career or romance, that is going to give you what you need how you need it, and it might just be an international affair.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21)
Your Weekly Mantra: Pennies for peace.
These last couple of months have been all about cultivating love for you, Scorpio, but until August 2nd, Mars will be handling your money. In the past, you were the kind of person who didn’t think anything of a new outfit here and spa trip there, but these days, those kind of things are starting to add up–especially with long-term goals like marriage, kids, retirement, etc on your mind.
Most Scorpios really hate thinking about money, but luckily you will have Cancer in your ninth house which will inspire you towards and more zen, organic outlook on life. Maybe you should start saving money for a cottage in the woods, a beachside vacation, or a yoga retreat.
Whatever it is, looking at money as something to help you decompress rather than get depressed will change your attitude toward life completely.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21)
Your Weekly Mantra: Get what you want by being who you admire.
It’s time to start wheeling and dealing, because all those deals are about to be dunzo, Sagittarius. And for the best. Mars will be in Gemini and stroking your partnership zone. Whether you’ve met the business partner (or romantic partner) of your dreams, you are prepared to talk about what you can do for each other.
This may not sound romantic to every other sign, but to Sagittarius, boldness is a form of foreplay. You just need to find someone who can understand or match you. Just stop trying to test everyone to make sure they fit the bill.
Try to let them notice for themselves how to act around you, otherwise you might lose some good people in the fray.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19)
Your Weekly Mantra: Be compassionate.
Hey, Capricorn: Not everyone can be as organized, ritzy, or intelligent as you are. Shove any pretension that you might have developed for people around you down the drain.
For the next six weeks, the Sun and Cancer and your house of connectivity. While you’ll be dying to cut people that you aren’t vibing with out of your life, like you are wont to do, don’t.
Unless someone has genuinely hurt you, look at your relationship with them as a lesson you need to teach yourself. A majority of the time, you are just being sensitive and that person is just prone to teeth-grinding frankness.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18)
Your Weekly Mantra: Be a show-off.
While the average Aquarius is normally incredibly open-minded, they are also very idealistic, making it hard for Aquarius to sometimes truly enjoy the freedom or the liberal philosophies they might intellectually allow themselves. This is your time to finally learn how to enjoy those things in real life too, Aquarius.
Let yourself be “bad” more; let yourself be “crazy” more; let yourself be “in love” more. Whatever it is, trying letting yourself be ruled by emotions and not your brain.
Doing this will not only help you live up to those ideals that impress you, but it will also help you attract people, the right kind of people who will admire and need your passion and talent.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
Your Weekly Mantra: Pamper yourself.
Watery little Pisces love the beauty of a fairy tale, especially the luxurious scenery with the long-haired princesses and the knight in shining armor. The boundary between reality and fantasy is quite blurred for Pisces and with the Sun in Cancer in your fifth house, you might actually be able to make some of those fantastical dreams come true. As long as you remember to take care of yourself.
This includes self-love, Pisces. Normally you leave all the lovin’ to other people but this is your time to learn how to give it to yourself.
Especially if there has been a certain woman in your life who hasn’t been giving you the love and attention you need. Give her a taste of your newfound self-confident sassy medicine and she should eventually thank you. Eventually.
