AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)
There has been some miscommunication, which may have left you feeling vulnerable but Friday will enlighten you. The Moon’s opposition to Mars is likely to fuel the fires of passion, making Saturday night memorable. Monday’s Moon bodes well for business and financial transactions, particularly concerning land development and property. A solar eclipse follows Thursday’s New Moon, which will give you the green light to forget the past and move on.
PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)
Things are set to improve this weekend and you will get full support from those around you in whatever you do or say. The Moon’s aspect to Saturn on Sunday evening will encourage you to heed long-term consequences, when planning your next move in the commercial sense. It may be better to act on Monday afternoon when you will have given yourself time to think. The New Moon and solar eclipse on Thursday will give you an insight into your future.
ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)
You are likely to be clearing and packing on Saturday morning if only to get rid of unwanted clutter. You are entering a new phase and it is necessary to create some space in your life. Saturday evening brings romance for the unattached. Monday requires a degree of hard work, which will pay off at the end of the week. Thursday’s New Moon brings a solar eclipse in her wake, which will alert you to facts that were overlooked in your previous calculations.
TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)
Your weekend is likely to turn out to be quite enlightening, providing you are open-minded. Younger people can be trying at times but we can learn from them if we take the trouble to listen. There seems to be a rift between you and other family members but good relations should be restored soon. Business may be slow at least until Wednesday and you should avoid making major decisions until the effects of Thursday’s solar eclipse have subsided.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)
You might feel that a weight has been lifted now that Mars has moved forward, having stayed retrograde in your sign for several weeks. Friday’s harmonious aspect could lead to a productive and satisfying weekend, free of opposition and obstruction! Your ruling planet, Mercury, is still retrograde in the sign of Aquarius, which advises you to be patient to complete what you started. Thursday gives you time to reflect on the merits of a u-turn.
CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)
Friday could pave the way for good relations in marriage and partnership. However, you will need to think twice before you spend more than you can afford when the Moon opposes Mars on Saturday evening. Fortune favours the unattached on Sunday evening and Monday morning could bring a business opportunity that might seem too good to refuse. It may be better to wait until Thursday’s New Moon before committing yourself to anything serious.
LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)
The Sun’s transit through Aquarius might put relationships under strain. However, Friday should help you restore harmony and minimise discordant effects of Saturday. There should be improvements in your solar house of income and expenditure from Monday. Thursday brings the New Moon, which joins hands with Mercury but the planet’s retrograde movement could frustrate your efforts. However, you needn’t be disheartened for long.
VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)
You seem to be going from strength to strength, particularly with regard to your self esteem. You may have finally realised that you have a great deal of inner strength, which others may not see. Friday will help achieve your aims, particularly when it comes to signing legal documents and business contracts. Monday is a good time to start a new venture or learn a new skill. A setback may occur on Tuesday but a solution will surface on Thursday afternoon.
LIBRA (Sep 23 to Oct 23)
You might be pleasantly surprised on Friday when good luck falls into your lap. Your ruling planet, Venus, aligns with Jupiter and the effect will lift you out of the doldrums. Monday’s Moon moves to join hands with Venus, which is likely to positively influence your financial prospects. Travel is likely to be on your agenda for this week. Romance is definitely in the air for the unattached on Thursday’s New Moon.
SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)
Your intellect might not be as sharp as usual and you are likely to be feeling a little weary at present but Jupiter’s influence is likely to give you a lift on Friday. Monday morning will see the return of your energy and you will be encouraged by the results at the end of the day. Wednesday’s conjunction, between the Sun and Mercury, could bring a person whose influence will change the course of events.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)
Life might have been getting you down recently but Friday’s union between Venus and Jupiter will soon reinstate your optimism and revive your enthusiasm. Things are likely to liven up on the home front on Saturday night, when you could be throwing a party. Monday morning is likely to bring some welcome news concerning financial matters but don’t spend it all at once. A lot is happening on Thursday and you might be prone to self deception.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)
Heightened emotions could cause tension in relationships and there may be trouble in paradise. If you or your partner overreacts, at least you will both be aware of where you stand. Apart from that it will be a relatively uneventful weekend with no real crises. You may need to make an important decision on Monday but make sure you sleep on it. By the end of next week, you will be in full flow and be much more productive using original ideas.
