March 22 - April 21 and Aries Rising
Your abilities to cut through confusion and take charge will be in demand, especially in August, October and December. Be sure to look at the root of issues before moving to action. In July, the planets create fortunate energies at spiritual/creative levels. This occurs in your financial, family and philosophic sectors. Some Aries will enjoy success in real estate, better work environment, family gatherings and retreats. Your home becomes a busy place now. Visitors, workmen and relatives are in and out and things can get out of hand. Take control here, in a kind but organized manner. Continue to blend your values with your action.
April 22 - May 21 and Taurus Rising
Your talent to promote order in the universe comes into play now as the stars create differences between what you want and what others want for you. Your path becomes clear in July when fortunate energies help you to understand the motives of others and give you better understanding of your deeper goals. Many Taurus will be successful in arbitration, communications and some will benefit by joining spiritual/creative groups that give support at deeper levels. Enlightened people around you offer better means and ways to succeed. You are now working on letting the past go and turning to a higher calling.
May 22 - June 21 and Gemini Rising
Your work and ideas of the past year begin to take shape and become more substantial. July offers opportunities for further development, financial backing and improvements. A realistic person offers to become your financial adviser for the short term and will put your money house in order. Make this agreement this summer for best results. New and futuristic ideas are still your forte, but you don't have time to try them all. Keep a notebook of your thoughts and references. September and October bring several occasions for you to teach or speak at multicultural events. Speak from your heart.

Jupiter, the planet of wisdom and abundance, enters the sign of Cancer now, bringing popularity and opportunities.

But partners may feel unsettled with your enlightened ways. October brings conflict. Be patient and don't push; true wisdom can be antagonistic to some. Many Cancers will be involved with children, education and personal improvement over the next six months. Decide what you want and follow through.
July 22 - August 21 and Leo Rising
The planets are moving into a place of retreat, introspection and review for you. You will gain insight and vision during this period. July's special opportunities offer home and family support and luck in real estate and finances, but the major focus will be spiritual work over the next six months. People from your past come into the picture and you will benefit from their advice. You may be in a contrary mood this September as some annoying reversals come into play. Move into your quiet place to avoid conflict. More responsibilities with family seem inevitable. Accept the challenge, Leo -- your leadership qualities will serve you well.
August 22 - September 21 and Virgo Rising
All communication activities are still in the picture Virgo, but now speaking, writing, and P.R. activities are enhanced, as Jupiter, the planet of wisdom, offers multiple opportunities for you.

Your goals and purposes are correct. Stick to your vision of things.
September 22 - October 21 and Libra Rising
Jupiter now enters your career sector and will bring some changes in routine accompanied by better benefits, possibly financial. But your stars find you at odds with much that is going on around you. Nothing seems to be the way you would like it. Your usual abilities of balance and arbitration seem to have little effect on others, but can help you adjust to the way things are at present. September and October provide social activities that make you happy, but watch your budget. In November, a person from your past contacts you, but may not be a true friend. The stars are in a watch and wait position. Take your time before making decisions.
October 22 - November 21 and Scorpio Rising
Your introspective talents now move out into the world to observe it. Many Scorpios will travel while others attend educational facilities. Legal and philosophic activities are successful, especially in July. Your already intense psychic abilities are entering an enhanced trend and you will be more sensitive to the needs and thoughts of others. Venus activities are likely. Your usual need for personal space and freedom seems to be balanced with responsibility and commitment. November has many social activities for you, but the second half of December finds you longing to be quieter, and you withdraw a bit into your inner world.
November 22 - December 21 and Sagittarius Rising
Work that is for the public, but not in the public, benefits you now and your finances improve. Ideas and plans that are in the back of your mind may have to come forward as the need quickly arises. Get them ready. July is positive for family and home. Some Sagittarians will move near water over the summer and others will renovate their living quarters.

Older children need you to look into their activities and be part of them. Make sure their values are in order.
December 22 - January 21 and Capricorn Rising
Foundation areas still need your attention. This can include renovating the place where you live, working on old ideas that form a base of security but need to change, and some health issues. Fortunately, major and powerful planets help you to reorganize and restructure your life. July offers opportunities to arbitrate differences with others, at least to a better level of understanding. But Jupiter, now in your opposite sign, will present people with contrary opinions. Nevertheless, your forte is diplomacy and things will get done. Social and group activities provide fun and good business contacts. Travel is likely in November and December.
January 22 - February 21 and Aquarius Rising

July offers rewards for your services with a promotion and improved finances. People with opposite personalities try to undermine your work in September, but are quickly exposed. Past memories come to mind from time to time, but you have moved on and have made positive changes. December brings better vibrations with travel and recreation.
