Trust, believe, and keep the faith that you’re heading in the right direction and it’s leading to a promising path. Stay on point and do what you feel is right. This week’s energy will be laden with promise so don’t jump the gun. Everything in moderation, since there are four planets now in retrograde (Pluto, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune) doing their due diligence while you continue your journey. Keep your eyes and ears open to information. Friends or family members may ask for guidance. Pay attention to the social realm as you will find the answers to your questions soon. “We must act to shape and mold the future, and leave our imprints on events as they slip past into history.” Haile Selassie

Capricorn: This is a monumental, outstanding week to adjust your preparations in areas of self- realization towards a better quality of life. When interacting with others, embrace them with a smile along with a compliment. People will want to occupy your time; make sure it’s conducive to your schedule. An increase in finances, along with networking with others, may be the catalyst and keys that hold the pieces to the puzzle. It could be a friend of a friend or a colleague who may be the source of the catalyst you seek. Lucky you! “There is no barrier to success which diligence and perseverance cannot hurdle.” Oscar Micheaux

Aquarius: The floodgates are opening with advancements, recognition, and a possible increase in pay. Wait! Hold on, and think about it, since the excitement of it is getting to your beautiful, intellectual mind. The question becomes: can you handle being in authority, along with the skill-set of obligations? Reach out to an elder or someone of wisdom to consult with during this cycle. A unique and strategic approach with a plan is all you need along with time management. ”Without a struggle, there can be no progress.” Frederick Douglass

Pisces: What your body can sense and feel your mind can interpret to help you collectively assemble things in a rational matter. Almost like the influence of the cosmos, divine sources are softly speaking, whispering in your ear, directing you. Sometimes things don’t need to be said or justified until there’s a click in the other person’s mind. Don’t second guess yourself or deviate from your responsibility, particularly this week. “I planned my success. I knew it was going to happen.” Erykah Badu

Aries: If you can sense it you can feel it, knowing something important and dynamic is forthcoming. There is a special energy surrounding you that lets you know it’s about “me” this time around. Carefully sit down in a comfortable position, relax your mind, and meditate. Envision, in your mind’s eye, the clues that are in sight. Don’t get distracted by instantaneous experiences. Instead, try to understand the who, what, where, when, and the how. Just don’t overthink. All things materialize in divine order as always.” If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.” Booker T. Washington

Taurus: Your mind may be in a trance now, fixated on the ideas, people, and the things around you. There’s one thing to understand: you can’t keep doing the same old “ring-around-the-rosie” situation and realistically expect the same results. Mentally, the alpha and the omega are directing you to extinguish wasteful matters once and for all. A brand-new expedition is accessible, but only if you’re ready to detach yourself completely. What you hold onto this week will only deplete you mentally from your progress. “If you don’t like my ocean don’t fish in my sea. Stay out of my valley and let my mountain be.” Ma Rainey

Gemini: Things can get a little spooky and out of pocket if someone crosses the line. The experiences you encounter may shake you up, resulting in bringing you to your knees at some point. Your circumstances could spell a demise regarding your present environment and, along the way, your present duties could be slightly troublesome. You must hone in and rise like a “phoenix from the ashes.” It’s a reminder of the death of old ways of doing and thinking and the rebirth of something new. Do what’s in your heart. “Whatever you see you gotta keep a sense of humor; you gotta be able to smile through all the bullshit.” Tupac

Cancer: A change in your environment and the directions you’re heading in is for your peace of mind this week. Problem-solving situations, in the end, can lead to handsome and rewarding compensation. Being assertive and taking proper care of your mental and physical well-being is vital. Romance is in the air if you want it or are seeking a commitment of some form. Finances and a helping hand, coming from all angles, is on the menu now. “I just had a God-given talent for making people beautiful.” Zelda Wynn Valdes

Leo: Happy solar return this week, Leo! Some things are not meant for everyone and you seem to intuitively understand. People have different paths and circumstances to take which are different from yours. You have no time to waste, and hardly time for a break. Your mind is moving faster than the words coming out of your mouth. Slow down a bit. “Like I always tell my brothers, if you gonna go into history, you can’t do it with a hate attitude. You got to remember times was different.” Henrietta Lacks

Virgo: A form of establishment and security is needed, if you happen to be tending to family obligations this week. Giving birth symbolically or otherwise to a new concept of a project, yet putting an end to something no longer needed, is on the table. It’s time to get the ball in the basket, shooting from a three-point distance on the court. You are a leader and an authority in your field. Let the games begin. “We are here because there are things that need our help. Like the planet, each other, and animals. The world is like a garden, we are its protectors.” B.B. King

Libra: Being able to recognize the matter at hand may be the key to finding solutions to helping others during this cosmic cycle. So, let’s not be rivals. Understand, we’re all battling issues from within. If you have compassion for yourself, then for goodness’ sake, have it for others. Once you show compassion for others it can shine like a beam of light as a healing aspect. Try it, even if the person doesn’t understand how they will soon hopefully feel. “Self-reliance is the fine road to independence.” Mary Ann Shadd

Scorpio: Consistency and persistence are the keys this week, especially for those who want to eavesdrop by asking you 100 questions for nothing. Meanwhile, get into a routine. Additionally, there may be positive and constructive signs showing up more frequently regarding your present situation. It’s time to make self-improvements in your social and business affairs. Friends and acquaintances may have an influence on your work, or be in need of guidance or vice versa during this cycle. “We are all gifted. That is our inheritance.” Ethel Waters

Sagittarius: The best approach to any matter is to come from the side of truth and honesty. Along the way, you may have two different styles of approach. One is more philosophical, and the other has more of a mind of its own. It’s like being at “6’s and 7’s.” They both have different energies and a different perspective, yet can find a balance in the middle of things. You don’t always have to agree; you can get along and get things accomplished as a team and become a force to be reckoned with. Making your dreams a reality is the golden ticket to your success now. “I am ready to act, if I can find brave men to help me.” Carter G. Woodson
