The aspect between Venus and Saturn on Tuesday creates a work atmosphere in which you'll be able to accomplish a great deal. The Gemini moon, meanwhile, suggests partnering up to be more efficient. You'll enjoy having a teammate, so use this opportunity to collaborate.

Wednesday may bring emotional tumult as the moon aspects feverishly with all seven heavenly bodies — be prepared for ups, downs, and mood swings. This influence will soon pass, so make an effort to maintain an even disposition on the 25th.

Pisces (February 19–March 20)

If you receive money, be careful that it does not disappear just as quickly as it arrived. Be smart about investments and deposit funds in the right places. Mars in Aries in your chart’s sector of wealth signifies an increase in assets, but as Venus enters into Aries also, it could mean that you won’t handle this new income appropriately. Beware of impulsive decision-making.

Aries (March 21–April 19)

With Mars (your planetary ruler) in Aries, you feel passionate and hot-blooded. As Venus enters your sign this week, you'll experience romance or intense moments of close friendship. Be careful not to be domineering or impatient, which can sometimes happen when warlike Mars occupies your sign.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)


Work and social responsibilities have depleted your energy, so make time to relax at home this week. Next month, Venus, your planetary ruler, enters Taurus. Soon you'll feel marvelous and want to be noticed — but until then, prepare for all the excitement to come with plenty of rest.
 

Gemini (May 21–June 20)


Work will go well for you now, with the sun in your chart’s area of honors. Your social calendar is likely filled with large gatherings or parties — both Mars and Venus are in your horoscope’s sector of society and public life. You can communicate your deepest ideas effectively now, but have the good sense to know when it’s appropriate to share personal thoughts in public and when it’s best to simply exchange pleasantries.

Cancer (June 21–July 22)


This week, the universe grants you the opportunity to excel at work and impress your superiors. You may even earn a raise or promotion soon. With both Venus and Mars in your chart’s sector of accolades and fame, you have what it takes to succeed. Trust your intuition and move forward with confidence

Leo (July 23–August 22)


Be careful and take proper precautions if traveling abroad. Mars and Venus in Aries in your chart’s zone of overseas travel suggest that there could be trouble — so prepare appropriately. If you have no plans to journey to a far-off place anytime soon, this transit suggests that you remain modest about your beliefs and be careful not to preach to others about how they should live. Allow others to have their own opinions this week.

Virgo (August 23–September 22)


You may experience a decline in physical energy this week as Venus and Mars enter your horoscope’s eighth house of endings. However, this transit also makes it possible for you to receive a sum of money from an unusual source, so be open to new sorts of income.

Libra (September 23–October 22)


Pair up with someone now to create an unstoppable duo. Because both Venus and Mars hover in Aries in your seventh house of partnerships, you have the ability to accomplish a great deal with the help of a trusted confidant, spouse, or business associate. Share your ideas in an egalitarian manner to collaborate effectively and avoid conflict.

Scorpio (October 23–November 21)


Over the next few weeks, Mars will give you the power to focus on minutia and fine-tune your daily routine. At the same time, the golden influence of the sun in your fifth house of celebrations blesses you with abundant creativity. Now the universe favors both work and play, so find innovative ways to get things done that engage your inner child and make chores fun. 

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)


This week you will feel happy, energetic, artistic, and productive. Mars and Venus pair up in your fifth house of pleasure to create an atmosphere that favors fertility, both in the sense of creative endeavors and domesticity. If you would like to start a family, now is a good time.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19)


Mars will lend you the wherewithal to finally complete home-related projects this week. Make domestic improvements or invest in tools or carpentry. Be sure to protect your head while performing any potentially dangerous work — Mars in Aries makes this area especially susceptible to injury.


Aquarius (January 20–February 18)


Funds will come your way if you make the most of your work contacts and communicate to people about what you need. Increase business through dealings with other people and focus on public relations. Remember to be polite in your correspondence.
