A higher purpose
Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and higher purpose, will be winding up its stay in Gemini over the next three weeks. This is especially good news for people born under Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. There are few times when we can discern the workings of an intelligent design in our lives and this is one of them. Not only will you get cosmic confirmation that you are on the right track, but you will also get the emotional and financial support you need. Aim to do the highest good, and Jupiter will bestow upon you the best results.
ARIES (March 20-April 18)
Used to giving 150% (and getting zero recognition for it), you may be taken off guard by a compliment on the 27th. This will be followed by another one on the 28th and even a recommendation. There are times when the alignment shifts upstairs and suddenly that thing you’ve been doing for years is seen as special, praiseworthy and valuable. Don’t be shy. If anything, you want to make the most of the buzz that you’re generating. You are surrounded by people who can open doors for you.
TAURUS (April 19-May 19)
For weeks you’ve struggled to maintain a situation that is unsustainable. You knew something had to give, but unfortunately that knowledge only made you more inflexible. The beauty of the sun/Uranus sextile on June 1 is that you can go to bed exhausted and discouraged and wake up feeling enlightened and invigorated. And it’s not because you found your answer. It’s more like coming to an understanding that there’s nothing left to fight for. This simple realization will give you the freedom to act in your own best interest.
GEMINI (May 20-June 19)
The wayward pieces of your life will start to fall into place on Monday and Tuesday thanks to the incorporating energies of Jupiter. Suddenly you’re connecting with the right people, going to the right places, and being paid what you’re worth. It’s reassuring to know that there’s an intelligent design at work; however, you will need to guard against that Gemini tendency to “improve” on what you have. Sit on your hands if need be on June 1. You don’t want to tinker with the delicate forces at play.
CANCER (June 20-July 21)
It’s crazy! No sooner do you claw your way to the top, then you will discover by week’s end that you will have to prove yourself all over again. Is life really that fickle? Actually this only goes to show that the Universe stands still for no one. The planets are constantly on the move and so are we. Nobody grows by doing the same old thing. Being pushed out of your comfort zone ensures that you will always rise to the higher occasion of yourself.
LEO (July 22-Aug. 21)
You’re on to bigger and better things this week — which is great. You just wish you knew where you were going and how much it will cost. This is one of those times when you just have to put your trust in the stars because figuring out the whys and wherefores would be like putting the cart before the horse. The freedom to reinvent doesn’t come from repeating what’s come before; it comes from winging it. Go with what inspires and enlivens you, and you can’t go wrong.
VIRGO (Aug. 22-Sept. 21)
Jupiter in your solar midheaven is lifting your sights and expanding your horizons. Its job is to get you to live a fuller and more fulfilling life, and the way that it does this is by introducing spontaneous twists into your day-to-day life that get you to question the formulaic. These could manifest as thought-provoking conversations, unexpectedly creative collaborations, or even being seated next to someone that you would never socialize with in a million years. The Universe chooses curious mouthpieces during times like these, so listen up!
LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 21)
You’ll be in search of your higher purpose as Jupiter forms a conjunction to Venus this week. Just make sure that your higher purpose isn’t the guy you’re crushing on or the pair of Manolo Blahniks that you’re obsessed with. You need something more transcendent to feed the soul. Sign up for volunteer work or try your hand at philanthropy. But don’t write a check. Be hands-on — and bring along a girlfriend or two because what starts off as a lark often takes flight when Jupiter is powerful.
SCORPIO (Oct. 22-Nov. 20)
You’re tired of managing a loved one’s craziness and you’re ready to throw in the towel. Thankfully, benevolent planetary aspects on May 27 and May 28 will bring the turnaround that you’ve been praying for. This could result in this person seeing the light, or he could bottom out all together. In any case the stars will be providing some well-timed cosmic intervention, and he will definitely get the message. Keep up the support and encouragement because the next 3 weeks are all about him getting back on track.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20)
Wishes don’t always make the easiest translation to reality as you will see for yourself on Tuesday when something you’ve longed for finally comes true. Now that you’ve gotten what you wanted, you will soon see how it introduces a new slew of complications. This is not the time to disappear. What’s needed is an ever-present you. It’s your job to sell loved ones, friends, and colleagues on this new and radical development. They’ll need your reassurance and your belief that what’s transpiring is really for the best.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 18)
Your schedule is not your own when you have a lot of Mercury energy coursing through your horoscope. Mercury loves to mess around with your to-do list and delights in reshuffling your priorities. But this isn’t capricious. You really will have to field a flurry of breaking developments that occur simultaneously and each will require your immediate attention. It’s a Capricorn nightmare because you don’t like to be interrupted, but when you see who’s calling (and why) then you won’t be so bent out of shape.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 19-Feb. 17)
Some people panic when their world is turned upside down. And some people — like yourself — come to life. Last week’s developments were certainly life changing, and you’re probably still waiting for the dust to settle; however, there’s no denying that you are also feeling more inspired than you have in years. Remember that your greatest resources will always be your human resources so turn to the people in your life to help you chart your new course. They’ll be there with support, guidance, and even a helpful tip or two.
PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19)
A chapter in your life is drawing to a close which is why you are dealing with so many endings, partings, and relocations these days. People want to make sure that things are good between you before they move on to other destinations. You can help ease their transition by being the wonderful sounding board that you have always been. And they can help you to accept these changes in showing by example that being true to yourself is the greatest truth that you could ever hope to embrace.
