Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, has run into a bothersome spot. Facebook has lost half its value since the social media company got listed on the stock exchange, and Zuckerberg has personally lost $10 billion of his personal fortune.
Zuckerberg was born with the conjunction of Moon and Saturn at birth, and now Saturn is experiencing the “Saturn return.” No doubt he will be undergoing a sobering cycle, which is in contrast to his youthful and enthusiastic, “I can conquer the world” attitude when he first started Facebook.
Year 2013 will be an even more trying time as he may discover close associates undermining him. But 2014 will bring him better good fortune and karma. Although he will experience a difficult 2½ years, he will emerge from this trying commercial cycle much stronger and wiser.
You could be forgetful during this phase, but perhaps forgetting is exactly what you need to stop you feeling angry at someone this week. On a practical level, absentmindedness means you lose things of value. Keep your mind on what you are doing.
It’s easy to get involved with someone because of the added benefits that might go along with that relationship. Human beings are not accessories, so don’t be tempted by money, power and influence. That is not something that is going to be yours for the taking. Love for the correct reasons.
Reevaluating your relationship requires in-depth discussions and negotiation. Fortunately, Venus gives you the edge, and you are able to move your relationship forward to a better space than it has been in recently. Getting away for a couple of nights to a new environment can facilitate this more easily.
You are likely to be angry this week with the person you love most. Your creative needs are not being met, and this will create frustration. Just remember, you can’t hold a gun to other people’s heads to get them to do what you love. At times, you need to go it alone. This week is one of those times.
You have perfect opportunity to enjoy social and romantic interludes, but you must not let money get in the way of smooth engagements. If financial issues are clouding a relationship now, you must gently but firmly speak your mind and resolve things.
It’s time to turn over a new leaf and boldly assert your identity. This change may adversely affect some of your current relationships, because people are creatures of habit and may not like what they see—or may not be able to control you anymore.
Affairs of the heart move slowly during these coming few days, but look at this in a positive way. It gives you the opportunity to carefully analyze those parts of a person’s nature you might otherwise overlook. Even if you get to see the dark side of an individual’s personality, at least you know what you’re in for.
You are in top form now with your ruling planet Mars transiting your Sun sign, and attractive Venus in the upper part of your horoscope. What could possibly go wrong, you ask? Egos may clash, ruining an otherwise excellent relationship. Humility will be your keyword in keeping a good thing going.
An unexpected new relationship or friendship may not be all what you had expected. Issues of power and control may emerge, causing you to rethink your position. If someone’s not right for, it’s like trying to force a round peg into a square hole. Let things take their natural course.
The relationship you are currently in may start to radically change your personality. With the change, fear is inevitable because you are not sure what the unknown will bring. For this reason, your keyword in the next week or two is trust—not just in another person, but in what life can offer if you are open to these transformations.
Envy and spite are character traits that will reduce the trust in any relationship. You may feel your partner or someone you’re interested in is showing more attention to a third party. You must not allow these feelings to undermine what could develop into a much better relationship in the coming weeks.
You have to keep up with the changes that are happening to your spouse or partner in the coming week. Begrudging their success will not help you in any way. Sharing in the excitement of your partner’s current good fortune will bring you better luck as well. This is a time of sharing and good karma—if you allow it to flow.
Torn between two lovers
I am a 35-year-old Gemini who has fallen in love with two men and can’t decide between them. One is an Aquarian, the other Scorpio. What should I do?

This is a complicated situation, and you need to make a choice to be fair to these gentlemen. However, from an astrological angle, the Aquarian is generally more compatible with you, being an air sign like Gemini. I have, however, found that Gemini and Scorpio can, in some circumstances, also have excellent communication.
Without looking at the detailed horoscope of all three of you, it’s difficult to make a clear judgement. But I would suggest you pay more attention to the Aquarian for the time being.
