VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)
Mercury, your ruling planet, is currently moving through your sign and is preparing for Monday’s conflict with Pluto. You might become a little oversensitive this weekend to other people’s remarks, particularly when it comes to loved ones. Saturn enters your sign on Sunday, which will not help to improve your disposition. However, if you allow yourself time to think things over, your perspective should have altered by Wednesday morning when you will start to see sense.
LIBRA (Sep 23 to Oct 23)
Friday’s Moon, in your opposite sign of Aries, forms a brilliant aspect to Pluto, currently in your solar house of travel and communication. This configuration is advantageous for the unattached, or those who might feel dispossessed, in some way. Saturn changes signs on Sunday, heralding a time of reparation and fusion, and the restoration of losses for those born under the sign of Libra. You will not hesitate to state your terms during Tuesday’s negotiations.
SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)
You might benefit from a break away from your routine this weekend as your batteries are very likely to be in need of a recharge, as a result of all the recent activity. Saturn enters your solar house of friendship and group endeavours on Sunday, which is likely to hamper your efforts to save the world by making you aware of your limitations! Monday and Tuesday are not brilliant for matters of a business nature. Money is scarce this week so hold back from spending.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)
If you happen to be unattached and looking for a soul mate, the Moon’s aspect to Mars, currently in your sign, could bring someone suitable to your notice on Friday. Saturn changes signs on Sunday and enters your solar house of ambition and status, where it will remain for the next two years, giving you the opportunity to stabilise and put down roots. However, this is not a week for making hasty decisions as the Sun moves into conflict with Jupiter on Tuesday.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)
Saturn, your ruling planet, puts you ahead of the game on Sunday as he enters the sign of Virgo. You are likely to stop and think twice before finalising plans or signing contracts. The Sun’s conflict to Jupiter on Tuesday, to say nothing of the conflict between the Moon, Mars and Uranus, suggests that it might be wise to postpone a journey. The unattached are favoured when the Moon weaves her tapestry of romance on Thursday.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)
Money matters take precedence on Friday as there might be something that you have overlooked that requires your immediate attention. I advise you to balance the book, otherwise Tuesday’s conflict will very likely take things out of your hands and you could be left without a single string to your bow. Saturn’s entry on Sunday into the sign of Virgo will reward you for hard work and straight talking.
PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)
You might find yourself feeling a little unsettled on Friday, particularly where partnership is concerned, as you do not seem able to see eye to eye at the moment. However, Saturn’s shift from Leo to Virgo this weekend is likely to help you to sort things out eventually. The forecast for Tuesday could be described as chilly on the home front and Tuesday is not a good day for travel, as you are likely to encounter obstacles along the way.
ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)
The chances are that you will be seeing the results of your efforts on Friday, which will give you a free hand over the weekend. You are likely to be undergoing a period of change at present, possibly moving house or expanding your business, or both. Saturn changes signs on Sunday and enters your solar house of work and health. The important thing to remember is, keep a balance and don’t overdo it and risk your health. Thursday’s Moon favours entertaining at home.
TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)
The fiery Mars is currently working his way through your solar house of income and expenditure, which might tempt you to go out and spend money like water. You are not usually reckless with your resources and you are advised to think twice before splashing out on something that you could do without. Saturn enters your solar house of leisure on Sunday, which is likely to restrict your pleasurable pursuits for a while but help to focus your attention on the rules of the game.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)
Life’s small complications are likely to be source of irritation this week starting from Friday’s disruption on the home front. You might imagine that you have things under control on Saturday but don’t be too complacent. Saturn changes signs on Sunday, which is likely to keep you anchored in one spot for a year or two, unless you have already managed to effect any changes in your sphere. Wednesday morning is a good time for meeting people for business purposes.
CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22))
You seem to be knuckling down to the business of getting things done in the practical sense at the moment. The Moon, your ruling planet, is in good aspect to Neptune and Pluto on Friday, which brings romance for the unattached, coupled with a hint of passion to benefit most close, personal relationships for those born under the sign of the Crab. Saturn exits your solar house of income and expenditure on Sunday, which could free up some cash after Tuesday’s conflict.
LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)
You are likely to be feeling on top of the world now that Saturn is exiting your sign. You might even be rewarded, financially speaking, through benefits that Saturn could bring while transiting your solar house of income and expenditure. The conflict on Tuesday between Mars and the eccentric Uranus could stir up a hornets nest and distract you from your game, unless you keep your eye firmly on the ball.
