March 22 - May 21 and Aries Rising
The stars give you the opportunity to express your fun side and the focus will be children. Coaching, sports, crafts and physical fitness are among the projects in which many Aries will participate. The challenging patterns will continue to be in career areas where you will feel blocked by others. As the warrior of the zodiac, learning to go with the flow, while difficult, may be the position you have to take. January sees Jupiter entering your place of spiritual insight. Wisdom comes more easily.
May 22 - May 21 and Taurus Rising
Your usual strength and patience is under challenge as issues with family and a possible housing situation seems to change daily. March and June present the best times for stabilizing matters. Keep up your health routines. While you cannot control some of the chaos around you, make your personal physical and spiritual practices a priority. A steady rhythm is best for you. There is much work required from you in philosophic, religious and spiritual organizations right now. Get involved.
May 22 - June 21 and Gemini Rising
Many opportunities are here for you, Gemini, especially in education, general business, building and crafts. Local projects, sports and working with young people bring out the kid in you. Changes and re-organization in career areas are occurring, but you can adapt. April and May could bring back old issues that are stressful to you, but new opportunities coming in June allow you to move on and transform the old with new ideas.

The focus for many Cancers is re-packaging old wisdoms into new technology. This will be of great benefit to the new generations. Travel, education and spiritual input are strong and positive forces now. You may have to make some difficult decisions about whether to break from tradition or to remain in an uncomfortable status quo situation, especially with family or partners.

August 22 - September 21 and Virgo Rising
This is an interesting time for you, Virgo, as you analyze, re-assess and move to higher planes to solve problems. Opportunities in education, creativity and problem solving are in your stars and make you happy. Others want to choose a different path for you, but they do not understand where you are and what your true work is. Some attention will have to be given to past issues that re-surface, but this may bring a little financial help. Keep more to yourself in June, as stress can be a real problem.
September 21 - October 22 and Libra Rising

Added responsibilities bring out your organizational side as you rally to meet demands. Charitable institutes become a focal point. Many friends surround you. Some changes in your world are unavoidable, especially in June, yet your inner peace is a constant. Stay within the boundaries that you are comfortable with.

There seems to be much discord at your workplace, but this will pass. Focus on positive energies that bring you new insights and mental sharpness. Read, write, teach or take classes. Some Scorpios will work on creative projects with children, while others will bring computer skills to the classroom. New responsibilities over the summer may be difficult. Be sensitive to your own health needs before taking more on.
November 22 - December 21 and Sagittarius Rising
Opportunities for giving your time to others abound, but financing projects may prove to be a challenge. In your personal work, look to multi-cultural organizations, especially in law and education fields to further your career. Your attention seems to be pulled to family issues for a while. The stars are showing a division here and what you see as just and fair, may not come into the picture until June. Forbearance is probably the best choice.

New opportunities in June require careful scrutiny, especially where finances are concerned. Know what the truth is.
