Aries season has been as frenetic as expected. For one Aries club (Winnipeg) that’s been good news; not so much for the others. Now that Venus moves into Aries this week as well, and Mercury is still on its Pisces path, expect some more — stop me if you’ve heard this one before — chaos.
The Gemini Mars, plagued with indecision and a lack of focus, has been brutal for a lot of Gemini-leaning clubs, in particular, Toronto. There’s still time to get back on track leading into trade szn.
Connor McDavid: 60 points, 39 assists (Capricorn)
Auston Matthews: 21 goals (Virgo)
