Mars goes into fire cardinal sign Aries on June 27 and will remain there for six months until Jan. 6, 2021. Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn in cardinal earth sign Capricorn, along with Mercury in a cardinal water sign, are likely to add some additional sparks. This tug of war and shift of the energy may leave your daily routines feeling stagnant. If you balance air, water, earth, and fire, you can expect a good outcome. Mars in Aries—governing politics, wars, forcefulness—is likely to enhance your self-confidence. This aspect also adds a sense of brilliance and bluntness yet is passionately compassionate at the same time. Mars’ energy is heating up, suggesting a time for starters, not for finishers, unless you have a team to back you up. Be mindful of people who are confrontational just to arouse you. Stay motivated and be inspired to ignite the spark within others along the way. “The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.” Carl Jung

Capricorn: Cap: You know how it feels to be left out, abused, uncared for, and unloved. But you’re always the one people can count on and come to in time of need. Where are they, when you need them in your time of need? These next five months of Saturn in Capricorn, your ruling planet, says to have no time for wannabes and slackers. You’re on a mission to accomplish what you started. The next five months are going to make a warrior/soldier and a lover out of you. Be prepared for this ride and nurture yourself and everything that you do. Like magic, you may be in for an amazing outcome. Keep your attitude in check. Feel and hear the divine messages that are likely to be delivered from within. “Persistence guarantees that results are inevitable.” Paramahansa Yoganada

Aquarius: You are not one to be messed with at all. Your quirky individuality and sense of humor can easily turn to an “I just want to be left alone” attitude. Your work may have you feeling like you’re spiraling in all four directions; you’re stepping up your game to something more fulfilling. Decisions have to be made. Take a day or two to meditate and answers should be forthcoming. Either you’re out or demand a raise, plus the possibility of opportunities may be coming your way. Either way, you’ll be rewarded for your service and work in divine time. You’ve got to have patience! “Don’t worry about a thing, cause every little gonna be alright.” Bob Marley

Pisces: It’s time to roll up your sleeves and get to work. You’re likely to receive an answer to your question; if something was once a mystery, that’s no longer the case anymore. You’re moving onward and upwards to more stable ground and it took a moment to get there. Wait, however, since you may have a straggler or two from your past still hanging on. Relationships, work opportunities, and obligations around the home or debts from the past may require your attention. Write your goals and routines down, then review it daily to stay motivated and mentally focused. You have no time for games. You are the captain of your soul. You know where you are going. “Your best teacher is your last mistake.” Ralph Nader

Aries: Taking the lead this week is no problem now. However, you need a support team to complement your projects. Boss of all bosses, you’re paying the price to be one. You have to make some changes and decisions to make room for opportunities that are knocking at your door. If you need help, seek it. That’s what family, friends, associates, and professionals are for. Get off your high horse. Mars entering your zodiac sign will fill your heart with passion and unconditional love for self. Feed and nurture your soul to become a better version of yourself. Mars in Aries to the negative can be reckless, ruthless, and manipulating, and that’s not the way to act if you want to be respected. What you put out comes back to you. Take a look in the mirror and stare for a moment. Who do you see? Do you like what you see? If not, then change it. “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” Vincent Van Gogh

Taurus: Last week, you were very self-assured and assertive in what your heart desires, in addition to accomplishing your mission. You love nice, quality things that are made from earth and that money can buy. Speak, see, and write what you want into existence. Then, bathe, shower, or go near a body of water to reflect on the images in your mind. Neptune enters Pisces on June 23; your emotions, including dreams perhaps, may be heightened and take on a different tone and meaning this week. A woman of influence may counsel you or vice versa; either way, allow the message to come to you rather than seeking and looking for the answer. “I done the best I could with what I had.” Joe Louis

Gemini: Now that you’ve eliminated all the riffraff that was immobilizing you, now’s the time to step forward. You can see clearly that the storm has cleared away. The ups and downs are a symbol of growth to your character. Step out of your comfort zone and see the beauty when you step into the reflection of self. Who and what do you see? Pull your bra strap up, and fellas tighten your bootstraps and suspenders to get a grip of yourself. Young man, pull your pants up and put a belt on. Attend any family obligation. Get it together and do it for SELF. “Don’t believe everything you hear: Real eyes, Realize, Real Lies.” Tupac

Cancer: Last week may have been a reality check and a sign to snap back into what you love to do. Plus, getting things in order, including around the house this week, is recommended. There’s nothing better than seeking the answers from within to connect with that most important person in the world…YOU. Hidden truths about you, people, places, and events will be more meaningful this time around. Your friends are there to pull you up and assist when needed. A conversation with a loved one, family member, or friend will turn out to be beneficial. Now that the sun is in your sign, you can expect to see events and opportunities coming up on the horizon. “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” Maya Angelou

Leo: Symbolic news of a pregnancy, wedding, graduation, or advancements within your environment or circle of family and friends may be announced this week. Along with revealing the sex of the baby, a vision of flashes of an idea comes to mind. Love, work and being of service amplify your heart, flowing with positivity. What’s coming your way up the road is a sign and seal of approval. Leo, love yourself, and the rest will reflect on others as well as you. The sun and moon always shine light in those dark, lonely moments, and keep the energy of the heart a brave one.

Whatever your dreams are, go for it.” Magic Johnson

Libra: Change occurs when it’s necessary, and the time to update the program, rules, and regulations is now. This week! Libra, this is your time to take the initiative and transform yourself into initiating a universal makeover. Nothing is stopping you unless it’s Y-O-U. Would you rather be in control or allow the planetary orbits of the sun to do what they’re meant to within your circle? The universal cosmos is now leading you to walk forward rather than backward. How do you truly feel inside? Check your pulse rate. Is it beating at a fast or normal pace? It’s time to make it rain with drenching success, so get on your duty. “Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.” Napoleon Hill

Scorpio: Looking for a home, a raise, or promotion to further your search for a change? I know you sense that change is approaching fast without a doubt. You have to apply yourself for the change to occur. You will notice that when you do, opportunities will present themselves to you. Start beating your feet to the beat of the rhythm of your heart. You are so direct when it comes to who and what you allow in your personal space. Apply that same energy to your heart’s desire. You got this, so handle your business, and stop beating around the bush. “Being beautiful is all in the attitude, it’s about confidence.” Ciara

Sagittarius: Staying in routine gets you closer to the finished product. Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune planetary aspects are at work, giving you the tools required to push the envelope a little farther. There’s a phrase: Ante up! Sag, you adore going hard, especially when you love what you do. Uranus strikes again with lightning bolts, illuminating brilliant ideas to incorporate into your projects and plans. What a lovely week ahead. You are the boss, teacher, therapist, explorer, etc. all in one. You work with the energy, instead of the cosmos frequency knocking you upside your head against the wall. Everything else from that point is far more manageable. “We change people through conversation, not through censorship.” Jay-Z
