When a tornado
meets a volcano
Uranus is the planet of revolution and change. It will knock over the game board in your life and send all the pieces flying. Pluto is the planet of ordeals and the transformations that arise from them. It introduces situations that will test your willpower, faith, and spirit. When these two planets square (i.e. clash), like they will on May 20, then you will be forced to choose between the hell you know and the heaven you don’t. Who you are on the other side of this will be a very different person from who you were before.
ARIES (March 20-April 18)
This won’t be the easiest time to lock in commitments so don’t push people before they’re ready. The Sun/Neptune square will be garbling messages, clouding minds, and creating false memories through the 26th. This won’t sit well with you which is why you’ll want to blow off steam at the gym or go for long walks — especially on the 24th when you hear news that something you were betting on falls through. But don’t lose heart, because there’s a much better something else right behind it.
TAURUS (April 19-May 19)
You knew that a certain situation couldn’t stay in limbo forever and this week it will unravel. It will be nice to see that it won’t devolve into a fiasco. If anything, it will prove to be a relief for you and the other parties involved because everyone will finally be free to go their own way. There will be certain details that need to be worked out — like who owes whom what and how much — but the overall outcome will be a swift resolution to matters.
GEMINI (May 20-June 19)
Don’t let hurt pride (and maybe even feelings of revenge?) drive you to cut off your nose to spite your face. Right now your Star is on the rise, but that doesn’t give you cosmic immunity. You can still jeopardize your good fortune by locking horns over a financial dispute that just isn’t worth the aggravation. This is the time to let bygones be bygones because you are moving on to bigger and better things. Don't imperil your future by fighting over something that really belongs in the past.
CANCER (June 20-July 21)
You will be forced to choose between two sides at work. One side is pushing for true change while the other is pulling to stay put. It’s a difficult position to be in because both will demand your absolute loyalty and neither will accept anything less. Obviously you have to go with the side of progress — even if it looks iffy and untried. The status quo has run its course, and this will result in a dramatic reshuffling of the ranks between now and June 19.
LEO (July 22-Aug. 21)
Battle lines will be drawn between your friends and your family. What started out as a conflict in personalities has escalated into a full-scale war of the words and neither side will back down. This is a Leo nightmare. You just want people to get along and for everyone to like you. But perhaps the trouble stemmed from sidestepping this issue in the first place? Before making your decision, make sure you’re not acting out of blind loyalty. Be ready to speak from the heart on the 24th.
VIRGO (Aug. 22-Sept. 21)
Expect big to-dos on the home front and at work on the 24th. These two areas have been at odds for years, and it all comes to a climax on Friday. Has work been dominating your private life? Have familial obligations forced you to stay on a career track that you would have abandoned long ago? Whatever the outcome, you will want to allow time for it all to sink in. The result won’t be what you expect, but it will certainly be for the best.
LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 21)
Life continues to throw you curveballs from out of left field this week and you will have to decide to swing, bunt, or walk. Actually walking may look really good on Monday. You are currently being pulled in two directions by the planets. Uranus, the planet of revolution, insists that you liberate yourself from the chains that bind you, while Pluto insists that you stay put and sweat things out because everything will work out in the long run. Somewhere between the two lies the true middle course.
SCORPIO (Oct. 22-Nov. 20)
It looks like you will finally be free of a financial burden on Friday. And if you’re not totally in the clear then you will at least come up with a workable payback plan that will no longer drain the life out of your savings. For two years you have struggled to make ends meet, and every time you came close to your goal something inevitably happened to move the goalposts. Thankfully this will all be behind you. You can look forward to some real financial stability and sustainability.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20)
This Friday you will awaken to find that the rug has been pulled out from under you. What felt secure the night before is in now in free fall. But this is actually good. You do your best thinking on your feet and tend to put off things if given too much leeway. Well, you won’t have much time to cobble together a contingency plan, but rest assured that what you fashion on the go will provide you with the kind of blueprint that has eluded you for weeks.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 18)
Your next life chapter begins in earnest on Monday. You planted the seeds for this last May and they look like they will yield a bumper crop of rewards. Not only have you made a favorable impression with higher-ups at work (there are dollar signs in your near future), but it looks like you’ve gotten your body into shape. You will also be undergoing major changes in your home life. You could be getting ready to set down roots, marry, or welcome a new addition to the family.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 19-Feb. 17)
It isn’t easy being born under Uranus — the planet of what I don’t expect. Uranus is as revolutionary as it is revelatory which is why it’s the planet of surprise twists, shock endings, and rude awakenings. You never know where the next bombshell will go off. One of these will be taking place this week, and it promises to rock your world to its very foundation. However, it will also galvanize you to make the changes that only you can make and that you know are long overdue.
PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19)
You will experience highs and lows this week thanks to the lunar eclipse on Friday. The highs will be in your career as you finally receive the recognition that you deserve. You will also see some financial remuneration as well. The lows will center around your private life. It looks like a quibble will escalate into a quarrel forcing loved ones to choose sides. It’s the last thing you need considering the headway you made recently. It’s up to you to hold the space when everyone else abandons theirs.
