We begin the week with All Fools Day on which the world loves to play tricks on unknowing individuals. While this day does not bear any astrological significance, it does have a quality to it that unites us in the art of trickery and humor, some of which we are witnessing and some of which we could use. We’ve seen especially abundant amount of cosmic trickery with Mercury in retrograde these last few weeks as the world spun out of control from devastating news and revelations. Perhaps it is time to shift our focus towards the humorous side in an effort to seek balance. With the Sun in Aries, where it is exhalted, we can view this as a time of new beginnings. The Sun is the master of our corner of the universe and while in Aries it reveals a certain amount of power. Of course, this also puts into play an upcoming challenging alignment between the Sun and Saturn/Pluto both currently in Capricorn. Even though this time frame is narrow, we might still be in for a difficult set of circumstances. While we won’t feel the impact until next week we might feel the applying pressure of such a connection especially towards the end of the week when the new Moon arrives in Aries and triggers events.
Elsewhere the majority of the action takes place in Pisces currently hosting Mercury (now direct), Neptune (Piscean ruler), and Venus (exalted in Pisces) cojoin in the middle degrees of the sign. This collection of influential inner and outer planets delivers up a lot of fantastical conversation about lofty ideals and possibly delusion and grandeur. That particular aspect may be a bit too real for us to approach, but take heart because the opposite may also come to the fore. We might finally see a shift in the direction of our current political dialog. With so much activity in Pisces we would be wise to pause and mull thoughts over before speaking that which might be fraught with mis-truths and false facts. Neptune directs the subconscious and in that capacity it can be a dangerous purveyor of both inflated and delusional dialog when coupled with Mercury. The phrase silver-tongued devil might be the most apropos term to use this alignment. The sweetness of Venus with the messenger of Mercury combined with the illusive and surreal of Neptune could deliver some rather surprising news that is either powerful in its revelations or surreal beyond belief. It will be interesting to see what comes to light during this period.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Yikes Aries, you may be on fire later this week! Your dogged pursuit of all things that pertain to your career may shift to overdrive as you plow forward with a relentless passion. Never one to shy from jumping in head first, you are the epitome of motivation. Be careful not to burn too brightly, though.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may feel the desire to revolt this week. Going against the tide may not be a common route for you, but discussions and plans with coworkers may force you to take an alternate route. Your passion may be running hot with regard to starting something new after a revealing journey. Channel that excitement.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Motivated and eager, you my find that you are in big discussions surrounding your role this week. Be aware of a confusion factor though, especially if you work in a large organization. Facts may be difficult to discern and that may lead to frustration. Close friends and partners may be a better outlet for your thoughts. Restraint.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): Employment opportunities may light up your world this week. You may stumble upon what looks like the perfect job, however, you may also lack a certain skill that may be required. You may consider pursuing some education to bring the gap. A significant partner may raise concerns over your approach, so be prepared to defend it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This should be a good week to reach out and offer a helping hand to others. While this sort of gesture may be a challenge, it may also be necessary, especially if you are coping with an elderly relative or working within a large organization. Be sure to get your facts straight so your efforts are not in vain.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A dialog with your significant other may be full of lofty ideas and plans that are hard to ground. There may be nothing wrong with dreaming big, just be aware of the impact on other areas of your life if you reach too far. Seize the time to stretch your creative self and release your inner child.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Expect to be animated and driven this week especially by events that deal with close friends or partners. Challenges persist on the home front with family members possibly demanding your advice or aid. While challenges are necessary to make progress this week they seem to be bearable and enlightening. Seek balance in all you do.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): An unexpected turn of events may come from your partner this week as emotions run hot late in the week with work roles and duties. Adopt a creative approach and explore all options for making significant progress, particularly with siblings, paperwork and legal topics. Reign in your temper and avoid speaking to hastily.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may see an opportunity to exert yourself in areas where you might not belong. A matter that concerns family and your physical home may tempt you to offer up your two cents, especially with children. Money and investments may be at the root of the topic so tread lightly, particularly late in the week.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Personal accountability looms large in your life this week and most of the action may involve your home and family in particular. Be aware of confusing documentation processes especially as near the end of tax season. Double check your figures. The arrival of spring may motivate you to exercise and alter your lifestyle.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A possible confusing time may unfold with regard to siblings and equality. Money may be the likely culprit and there may be nothing so divisive as that single topic. You could be divvying up an account that requires oversight and balance, so tread carefully along those lines. Possible flare-ups late in the week.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You may be looking at the world through rose colored glasses this week so keep that in the back of your mind. Are situations what they appear to be? Challenges may arise from business associates so be forewarned of a hurdle looming there. Strive to find the balance on monetary matters and watch your temper.
