Destiny by Eric Francis
I’m no holiday from horoscopes, so there is no Planet Waves Weekly this week. This is a (much) shorter horoscope that appears in “Woman” in the UK. It’s associated with these phone lines: http://planetwaves.net/sign/signs.html
Mercury turned to retrograde motion in Leo, saying think differently about money and you’ll have a lot more of the stuff.
Aries (March 20-April 19)
Your life this week will have the feeling of bringing somebody else’s groceries home from the market, and experiencing life from their point of view. Or imagine you pay to get into a feature film and instead watch two hours of home movies of your childhood you didn’t know existed. Who needs reality when you have Mars opposite Neptune? Family Focus: Call your mom, or an aunt — they will he happy to hear from you.
Taurus (April 19-May 20)
A child in your life may seem to be reversing the progress of their maturity, though this is normal at the current stage of growth. What you quite can’t see is that this is their way of claiming their inner space and exploring emotions they don’t feel like expressing, mainly because they’re not ready. Giving them space to be themselves amounts to giving them space to grow. Family Focus: A partner now has the capacity to balance your needs with theirs.
Gemini (May 20-June 21)
You’re blessed with the gift of insight, and what you perceive, understand and say may surprise everyone. You can apply your mind to problems that have gone unsolved for months or years and actually get results. One of them involves a financial concern that’s troubled you for months, and what you may discover is that the solution involves more than one person. Family Focus: Wisdom from the mouths of babes — you’ll think you made up that expression yourself this week.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You’re catching a glimpse of how valuable your intelligence and personal resources are, and you may be deciding it’s high time you keep them to yourself. You’re a person with great regard for the well-being of the whole community, but I’m here to remind you that at the moment, the community begins with you. Invest in yourself and you will have plenty to share with others. Family Focus: People are finally figuring out that it’s fun to take care of themselves.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23)
Pay attention to a vision or plan for yourself that looks easy, obvious and effective today. Over the next few weeks, it may seem to disappear and become more of a wish, or something whose importance you neglect. But it’s time will come, you can trust that. Until that time, take good care of it, and vow to remember what’s so important to you today. Family Focus: A child is the star of the show — don’t steal the spotlight!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)
Mercury, your planetary first love, goes retrograde today, and this is a brilliant opportunity to ‘go public’ with a plan that you’ve been wanting to hatch for a long time. You’ll need your friends to make this happen, and remember that people you’ve known a long time are probably the most dependable. Family Focus: Teenagers should be the first people you go to when you have a technology question.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23)
Not only is there still time to save a professional project you might have given up on, it’s best moment has yet to come. As usual, you’ll be moving up in the world in an unusual way, and depending on your considerable experience and your dedication to your work. But this is not just about long hours — it’s about recognition for who you are. Family Focus: Everyone has a second chance to grow up, even adults.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
For as confident as you usually are, those moments of insecurity can be unbearable. Don’t you wish you could move past this once and for all? This will be the year, and this month is a key turning point. As for this week: remember, leadership is compatible with emotional vulnerability. Family Focus: Kids will not be in the mood to take too much authority, so you’ll need to be patient — and subtle.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22)
Pleasant surprises are in store in a close personal relationship, which is fine as long as you don’t mind a dash of the unexpected or unpredictable. What develops this week aligns with your recent heartfelt vow to expand your horizons and update your beliefs on a regular basis. Anything that challenges who you were yesterday will nudge you toward tomorrow. Family Focus: ‘Never a dull moment’ is the perfect mantra for you now.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)
It may come as a relief that others are finally going along with your plans on a financial matter, but you need to be cautious that everyone else is holding up their end of the deal. Your integrity is not a substitute for theirs, so you need to pay close attention to business this week, and ensure that everyone does their part. Family Focus: Kids will push your boundaries and your buttons; don’t fall for it.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
You have a soft spot for someone that you would be wise to guard. It’s not that others deliberately want to take advantage of you; it’s more like someone is poised to get their way and is just not considering the cost. Your sixth sense will warn you of any potential issues — but you will need to listen, and be brave enough to speak up. Family Focus: You’ve no need to feel guilty about saying no, and you don’t need to explain.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Take care to give yourself plenty of space from work. There is something else you need to do, something more visionary and creative that’s outside your usual routine, but you won’t see it if your head is stuck in a cubicle. Get to a different space so you can get into a different state of mind. Bring your notebook, and have important conversations in person. Family Focus: This is an excellent week to rearrange your living space.
