IF YOU ARE ON A CELL PHONE, THE ADDED FEATURES (PLATFORMS, SHORT STORIES, YEAR AHEAD, ETC.) CAN BE ACCESSED FROM THE TOP LEFT HAND CORNER (STACKED LINES). ALSO, THE ‘TRANSLATE’ & WORLD CLOCK WILL APPEAR AT THE BOTTOM.
*** All times / dates: Please remember that all time references (e.g., “dawn”) are PST – Pacific Standard Time zone. You can refer to the World Clock in the sidebar for more listings or Google ‘time zone converter’.
START NOTHING: 0:40 am to 4:08 am Sun., 6:27 am to 9:33 am Tues., 2:09 am to 11:11 pm Thurs., and 7:52 am to 10:29 am Sat.
ALL SIGNS: Mercury goes direct Wednesday (morning in N.A.). From here forward, we can take up new ideas, relationships and projects. Some astrologers believe the effects of the retro (delays, indecision, mistakes) last until Mercury regains the position it held when the retrograde started, which in this case would take us to February 7 before the delays and indecision end. I suspect there is some truth to this, solely because I have often felt, even a few days after the retrograde ends, a little discombobulated and uncertain. But until Feb. 7? That means the retro’s effects last about 42 days. Since there are 3 mercury retrogrades a year (sometimes 4) that means 126 days a year during which we should do nothing but gaze upon the past? No, that seems too much. Over third of every year? And some years, with 4 retros, equals almost half a year during which we are not supposed to start anything? No, I can’t quite swallow that. I think the few days of continuing uncertainty after a retro ends are merely the body and mind shaking off the retro “mood” or “mindset.”
THE FORECASTS WILL BE SHORT THIS WEEK, AS I HAVE TWO CORPORATE TAX RETURNS I MUST DO, SO LITTLE TIME…
ARIES: March 21-April 19
The accent remains on your ambitions, career, prestige relations and worldly standing, Aries. Keyword: pressure. Communications and paperwork play important roles. From Jan. 18 onward, you are released from the delays and mistakes of the last few weeks. Charge ahead, ambitiously! Socially, your life rides a sweet swell.
Life’s depths call you, and benefit you, Sunday to Tuesday dawn (PST). Best: Monday pm, when “something hidden” can be profitable. Wisdom, acceptance, gentle love come to you Tuesday morn to the forenoon Thurs. Law, far travel, higher learning, social/cultural rituals benefit, esp. Tues. Midday Thursday to Saturday morning awakens that ambition — you’re lucky and impressive, so charge forward, esp. Fri./Sat. Saturday pm is for friends, flirts, fun.
TAURUS: April 20-May 20
Take a wide view of the world, Taurus. Far travel, higher learning, beliefs, social/cultural rites, law, media are favoured. Wednesday ends several weeks of indecision, delays and frustrations. You can charge forward without hesitation now. Income questions/delays are resolved now. (Until late March, $ will flow to you. Three things: 1) don’t spend it all, 2) likely source of more $ is management role, and 3) better to opt for a pay raise than overtime, as the former is “permanent.”) Higher-ups favour you until Jan. 26, so do involve them n your plans.
Relationships fill Sunday to just past dawn Tuesday (PST) — be diplomatic, not everyone approves of your goals. Best: Monday pm. Life’s deeper side floats to the surface Tuesday morn to midday Thurs. This opens doors to sexual intimacy, financial actions, medical or lifestyle decisions — easy, lucky ones Tuesday morn, afternoon. Avoid self-deception late Wednesday night. Everything this month is about (far travel, media, etc.) intensifies midday Thursday to Saturday morning — in good ways! Yes, declare love if it applies. Saturday eve: ambition, schmooze with VIPs.
GEMINI: May 21-June 20
You’re still deep in life’s more mysterious zone, Gemini. Finances, sex, medical and lifestyle decisions are called for — and can be made, after Wednesday morning, when 3 weeks of delay and indecision dissolve. Your sexual magnetism is working overtime until late March. Exercising this magnetism can steer you into a place/situation where a major life wish can come true on or before mid-year. (If single, this can spell a life-mate; if married, it can spell a business partnership or relocation due to a good opportunity. If you’re in the public, your popularity will expand like a cloud over a warm ocean.) Your legal, learning, International and cultural side is blossoming now, too — until Jan. 26.
Tackle chores Sunday to dawn Tues. A so-so interval. Work with deliberate speed, not hastily. Tuesday late morning to midday Thursday brings exciting meetings, major intimate temptation, new horizons and opportunities. Best: Tuesday afternoon (PST). Worst: very late Tuesday and Wednesday nights. January’s characteristics “double” from midday Thursday to late Saturday morning — secrets, research, big finances, life style change, medical needs — and lust. Best Friday morn and Sat. — yes, do commit. Saturday eve, seek love and understanding.
CANCER: June 21-July 22
The accent continues on relationships, Cancer. For the past couple of weeks and a couple to come you can experience an almost secret affection towards someone, and it looks like you might want it to be Intimate. The big story, though, is 3-fold: 1) the weeks-long period of delay and indecision ends Wednesday: 2) the hesitation you have felt in career areas basically ended last week, so you are free to pursue career goals, esp. in management zones; 3) until May, your career/status luck is super-high. Charge after a promotion — you’re likely to get it. If you’re independent, now to May boosts your business/practical luck.
Sunday to mid-morning (dawn) Tuesday, are for passion, romance, beauty, pleasure, teaching kids, games and creative projects. Your luck is mixed, best Monday night. Tackle chores Tuesday morning to mid-morn Thursday. Eat, dress sensibly. Tuesday afternoon best. Those relationships and opportunities flow in at double intensity, Thursday morn to mid-morn Sat. Exciting meetings can occur! (And they might become swiftly intimate, fleshy, or quickly funded, financially viable.)
LEO: July 23-Aug. 22
This is your last week of work and drudgery, Leo. Less than a week, for Friday begins a month of relationships, fresh horizons and exciting opportunities. Last week an impediment ended, which had delayed international travel, higher learning, legal, cultural and media success. This Wednesday, another impediment — 3 weeks of indecision, delays and mistakes — also ends. This “ending tone” can help you finish a project/task — good, get ready for the unknown, for excitement. Some Leos will find love and a wedding now to May. You already have a hint, as one or a few are treating you with (re)new(ed) affection — and you them/him/her. An Aquarian might do a ”crazy love” thing.
Stay home or nearby Sunday to just past dawn Tuesday. Neither a great nor terrible interval — better the second half of Monday. (Tho’ you still see a problem to solve, it will “vanish” in 2 months.) Romance calls, as do creative, beauty, pleasure and sports desires, Tuesday midmorn (PST) to Thursday late morning. Indecision ends now, so charge ahead. Tuesday and Wednesday daytimes best. Wednesday night, deceptive. Give your pile of chores one last mighty shove Thursday pm to midmorn Sat. This s a good, productive interval — get “done” any task that can interfere with your capacity to love or to relocate after this week.
VIRGO: Aug. 23-Sept. 22
This is your last week of romantic vibes, Virgo — so wrap up creative, pleasure, sports or child-oriented projects now — and try to move a romance to a stronger level (esp. Thursday to Saturday). Bosses might have been critical, or perhaps were working to change your duties in a major way the last 80 days or so. But they have been held back — now, if you embrace this change in duties, welcome it, you could find yourself on the path to riches — or at least, a bit better pay! Think of snarling bosses not as enemies, but “life changers” — and hop on board their change boat! Workmates are pleasant all month. Investments (or lifestyle changes) made over the next 4 months can make you richer. Newly-wed? Pregnancy very available now to May.
Friends, casual contacts, short trips, calls, paperwork, all emphasized Sunday to just past dawn Tues. (PST). Double check figures, addresses. Best: Monday pm. From Tuesday morn to mid-morn Thursday, lean toward home and family. Emphasize “fun” and affection. Yes, do doubt your security Wednesday night. (A good interval, tho.) Thursday morning to late morning Saturday brings everything about January — romance, creativity, pleasure, etc., into intense focus. It’s time for decisions, Virgo: put up or shut up time. Saturday pm, tackle work.
LIBRA: Sept. 23-Oct. 22
The emphasis continues on home, kids/parents, security, foothold, mother nature, stomach and soul. This area has been blasted since 2009; but the planet responsible (Pluto) will leave your “home zone” in March, and by 2024 will fade forever, home-wise. You are about to be freed to find love, partnership, new horizons and opportunities, without Pluto coming in and destroying them. Of course there has been a lesson in all these 13 years: it has something to do with re-aligning love and ambitions/money goals, and discovering that love is there better choice. A legal, international, social/cultural, media or higher learning “idea” or situation that has hovered around you since last August, is now being reborn. This idea can bring a life-mate. Now to mid-May, if single, you could mate, or find your future mate; if happily married, you and your mate can launch many adventures; if unhappily married, now to May might spell separation.
Chase $, shop (carefully) Sunday to dawn Tuesday. Perform errands, return calls, travel, ask questions, do paperwork Tuesday morning to mid-morn Thursday. Thursday noon to late morning Saturday brings the whole weight of this month: kids, home, etc. Repair, start renos, build a tree fort or go camping. Saturday pm — chase love, it’s very near.
SCORPIO: Oct. 23-Nov. 21
This is your last week of errands, calls, texts, paperwork and trips, Scorpio, all the easy but time-consuming things. You might have felt a brief, light relief from work Nov. to now. But now that work influence fires up again, to March — in lucrative ways! So be brave, be active, get major projects started or finished. Work, until late March, might open doors to vistas and (mostly sexual and/or financial) opportunities you never imagined. Now through March, DON’T invest impulsively. Your home, family are sweet all month. Delays of the last 3 weeks end Wednesday — delays that have impacted your hopes and your finances. So charge ahead now.
Your energy and charisma soar Sunday to just past dawn Tuesday. Someone doesn’t co-operate Monday, but this night brings affection and co-operation. Timing’s everything. Chase $, buy/sell, embrace your lover, Tuesday morn to mid-morn Thursday. Tues. and Wed. daytimes are best. Thursday pm to mid-morn Saturday brings a last wave of errands, calls, paperwork, etc. — perhaps the most important wave, so dive in.
SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 22-Dec. 21
This is your last “money week,” Sage. Buy/sell, collect and pay. A good time to memorize anything. A casual sexual affair might begin (or did, last few weeks) — but it’s important to separate “casual sex” from a true, real, intense love attraction. Choose the latter, even if it risks having no one. A casual affair now would tend to push real romance out of your future path. (I mean near future — now through June.) Others have been feisty since August, but they “retreated” the last two months. Now, relationships of all kinds (but mostly romantic or creative bonding) will brow intense until mid-March. This intensity can (80 %) lead to huge love, or (20%) a major enemy. Much is up to you. Sages always need a bit of honey in their “frank” speech. Delays of the last 3 weeks end Wednesday — you can charge ahead now.
Lie low, sleep in, pamper your health, observe others, seek advice, charity and spiritual orgs, Sunday to Tuesday morning. Your energy and pizzazz shoot upward Tuesday morning to late morning Thurs. Get out, call the shots, see and be seen, and perform an action that might end these Dec./Jan. delays, esp. in money zones. Thursday morning to Saturday morning features the money chase: bill, collect, pay, ask for a pay raise, shop, etc. — a good interval. Casual sex available, but at what future cost?
CAPRICORN: Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Your money picture looks good, Capricorn, but it should get even better by this Friday into late February. You start this week with happiness, and end it with satisfaction. Sunday to Tuesday morning bring optimism, popularity, social delights, friendly romance and entertainment. But retreat from the fray Tuesday morning to mid-morn Thursday. Lie low, rest, contemplate. Seek advice. Liaise with gov’t or head office Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, eves. Your energy and charisma surge upward Thursday morning to Saturday mid-morn. Get out, see and be seen, give older projects a push, or start new ones — those 3 weeks of delay and indecision end Wednesday morning.
Your family and home (or real estate) meet huge luck now to May — the more you seek it, the bigger it gets. “Profit” here, whether emotional, monetary or otherwise, occurs when you tackle all chores. Delays (since November) end in this, also.
AQUARIUS: Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Remain in the background, Aquarius — until Friday, when a new personal month begins, one filled with “the world according to Aquarius.” But more on that next week. Last Thursday, pent-up romantic (or creative or pleasure-seeking) feelings began to find an outlet. Now to late March, a powerful romance could begin (or resume). Despite your weariness, others are attracted, because your demeanour has grown sweet, soft, reasonable. This lasts all Jan. Wednesday ends 3 weeks of indecision, delay and mistakes.
Be ambitious, preserve prestige contacts, and shine up your worldly status symbols, Sunday to just past dawn Tues. Best: Sunday and Monday afternoons. Dream of your favourite outcomes Tuesday morn to mid-morn Thursday — your popularity raises slightly, your hopes and delight in friends bless this interval. Caution Wednesday late night — deception/confusion. Your “birthday month” begins Friday, so your energy is on the rise. But Thursday mid-morn to Saturday morning dump you in the energy-sapping zone again. Use this to clear/clean up anything “left hanging” from these last weeks of jumbled efforts. Saturday night — you start a strong, successful weekend.
PISCES: Feb. 19-March 20
This is your last week (for awhile) of social delights, popularity, optimism and general bouncy happiness, Pisces. Friday starts a month of retreat, rest and “new plans.” Your home is still friction-prone, but these frictions were “unsolvable” since late October/22. Now to late March, they’re very solvable. Wednesday ends 3 weeks of delays and indecision, so you can charge ahead with home solutions/repairs/renos, family healing, furniture purchases, etc. On Friday you begin a month of retreat, rest, visualizing, liaising with gov’t and other “bureaucracies.” (In January, you will find this retreat very pleasant.) For the past 13 years, you have looked to foreign people or intelligent people for “love interests.” That will tend to end this March.
Sunday/Monday are intellectual, mellow, tolerant. Dream of faraway places, esp. Monday night. Be ambitious Tuesday morn to mid-morn Thursday. The accent’s on prestige relations, career and worldly standing. Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons good for action. Happiness comes for a visit Thursday to mid-morn Sat. You’ll be popular, optimistic, flirty — but only at 75 %, as you have also entered a “rest period” Friday. All’s well!
I told you 4 years ago that the FBI was corrupt. I told you tech stocks would plummet. I told you, a year ago, that inflation would come, but would subside after (was it June/22?). I told you nuclear fission would be developed, 2023 onward. I told you the Biden crew was corrupt and that electing Biden to the Presidency would be like “buying a haunted house.” Told you in 2016 that the liberals would scapegoat Trump and undemocratically try to destroy him because they deem him a threat to democracy. Told you, in every instance, that the Liberals corrupt attacks on Trump, — impeachment 1 and 2, Jan. 6 committee, etc., etc., would fail. I’ve called almost every up and down in the stock markets for decades. Remember when in 2007 or 8 I told you to buy, buy, buy stocks. The Dow was then 6,300. It is now 33,800 — 5,300 % higher. I told you, back in the 1990’s that a police state was coming.
All correct predictions, and that’s just what I can remember off there top of my head. But the “feedback” on all these predictions has been almost zilch. Finally, I’ve learned my lesson: my readers aren’t interested in the stick market nor in politics. So I will only occasionally delve into these areas in future.
