ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)
You usually have oodles of confidence but your self esteem might have taken a knock recently and you may wonder what your next step should be. Sunday’s New Moon will give you a clear indication of your position and which steps to take. Venus enters your sign, on Sunday to highlight your charms and turn a few heads in your direction. You are strongly advised not to enter into any dispute with those who hold positions of authority on Thursday.
TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)
You might feel that you are under more pressure than usual on Saturday morning when other household members seem to be taking over. Discreetly remove yourself from the foray and leave them to their own devices. You might be tempted to be over generous with your hospitality on Sunday, which could turn out to be costly. You should endeavour to postpone any legal and financial discussions until the Sun’s conflict to Jupiter abates on Thursday.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)
Your plans seem to have gone awry lately but there is light at the end of the tunnel so be patient for a little longer. The Moon’s conjunction to your ruling planet, Mercury, is likely to raise your spirits and put you in the mood for a party on Saturday. Venus is at odds with Pluto on Monday morning, which might cause some tension between you and your partner over finances. Something that you overlooked in the recent past may resurface on Thursday.
CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)
An opportunity is likely to present itself and this could be just what you have been waiting for, particularly if you wish to further your career. Younger family members might cause a bit of disruption to your plans over the weekend but you can handle the situation with grace. You will be in a strong position to negotiate on Monday but make the most of it, as the following days might not be so easy. Thursday could bring tension in your relationships.
LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)
You may be presented with a bit of a financial problem today (Friday) but inspiration is at hand to provide you with a solution tomorrow morning. Sunday’s New Moon is likely to fill you with the desire to travel and explore new territory but you should keep your feet on the ground! The Moon is favourable to Saturn on Monday morning, when you will be taken seriously. Thursday could be tricky and you should postpone important events until later that afternoon.
VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)
A few adjustments might be necessary as Sunday’s New Moon will demonstrate. You will, in all probability, find yourself back where you started a few months ago. However, Mercury is influential in bringing things to a satisfactory conclusion, where financial negotiations are concerned but stay cool. Saturn remains retrograde in your sign for a few more weeks, allowing you to think before committing yourself to anything new.
LIBRA (Sep 23 to Oct 23)
You may be feeling unsure as to where you stand but today (Friday) promises a glimmer of hope to raise your spirits. However, the coming week does not promise great things but it also does not portend disaster. Monday offers you a chance to re-think things and change tactics. Venus, your ruling planet, enters your opposite sign, Aries, at the start of the week, which will go a long way to smooth your path in the field of marriage and partnership.
SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)
The Moon is at odds with the fiery Mars tomorrow (Saturday), which might set sparks off at home when family members refuse to co-operate. However, you are bound to regain control over your unruly household on Sunday morning. The New Moon brings an idea involving a fresh approach to resolve a dispute regarding land or property. It is important for you to keep your eye on the ball on Tuesday and Wednesday, particularly where money is concerned.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)
You are likely to put your foot down on Sunday, having decided that enough is enough. You might have the overwhelming desire to cut and run from an untenable situation and perhaps you should follow your instincts in this instance. Monday should help you to think clearly and communicate effectively. There is likely to be a few obstacles in your path on Thursday morning but the clouds of uncertainty will have rolled away by Thursday evening.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)
You might feel a trifle restricted this weekend but Sunday’s New Moon should have a positive effect on your household generally. This is a good time to start renovations or redecoration in the home and all ventures connected with property and land development. A voice from the past is likely to spring a surprise on Tuesday, as an old friendship is revived. Thursday’s clash between the Sun and Jupiter could leave you feeling tongue tied for a day.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)
You should feel less pressured now after the labours of the last few weeks but there are still some loose ends that need to be tied up and you will have to be patient a while longer. Tuesday’s Moon clashes with Neptune and you are advised against forming conclusions as your perception is likely to be unclear. The Sun’s conflict to Jupiter on Thursday may cause you to revise a decision you made on Sunday’s New Moon.
PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)
Things might be a little muddled at the start of the weekend but you are not easily thrown off course. Saturn’s retrograde motion in your opposite sign, Virgo, seems to be giving many folks a hard time but you must focus on fulfilling your own requirements before helping others. Otherwise, you too could be swept away by the tide. Your mind will become clearer following the Sun’s conflict to Jupiter on Thursday, when you can dive in to the rescue.
