PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)
There is much to be gained today (Friday) when your efforts turn out to be worthwhile. Things are likely to go smoothly over the course of the weekend as long as you keep your cool on Saturday evening, when you may be irritated by a passing remark. You will be firing on all cylinders this week especially on Tuesday. The Moon enters your sign on Thursday and moves to oppose Saturn, and you will exactly know where you stand.
ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)
Take some time this weekend to complete tasks that you may have left unfinished. The Moon’s transit through Capricorn on Sunday and Monday gives encouragement to those who are striving for closure. Several options may be open to you this week and decisions will have to be made, particularly if you are running your own show. The Moon’s conjunction to Neptune will lend an air of romance to Wednesday evening.
TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)
There may be some disruption today (Friday) in the workplace. This could also influence weekend plans and you might have to change your arrangements at the last minute. However, things might turn out surprisingly well tomorrow (Saturday). Reserve some space on Monday to bring yourself up to date with paperwork before Tuesday. Thursday brings an opportunity for you to meet and make new friends who will be of benefit to you.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)
You might be at odds with the rest of the world today (Friday) but do not give in. You are blessed with being able to think on your feet and you are able to turn the tables to your advantage. Your weekend will finish on a good note on Sunday night. By Wednesday morning you will have recovered your good humour and equilibrium. The Moon’s aspect to Pluto on Thursday will assist you when dealing with people in positions of authority.
CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)
There are many opportunities that are open to you this week. Your weekend is likely to be flavoured with the unusual, particularly arising from today’s (Friday’s) astrological conflict. Tie up any loose business ends on Monday so you are prepared for Tuesday. Wednesday night brings the promise of romance for the unattached and endeavour to be mindful of your limitations on Thursday, particularly in the financial sense.
LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)
Your weekend is likely to start with a great idea and end with an anti-climax. The fault is with your high expectations, which can bring you to your knees when things do not go according to plan. However, on a brighter note, things will certainly be looking up from Tuesday when Mars changes signs. You might have been feeling a bit bogged down of late but with a shot of Martian enthusiasm, you should be making up for lost time..
VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)
You sense of propriety is likely to be challenged today (Friday) but you should remain calm in the face of adversity and take it in your stride if you do not wish to appear foolish. Monday’s Moon brings compensation for your pains, particularly for the unattached who are in search of a soul mate. The energetic Mars changes signs on Tuesday, which can bring nothing but benefit to you in the field of commercial enterprise and finance.
LIBRA (Sep 23 to Oct 23)
You may have been on edge during the past few days with no apparent rhyme nor reason. However, the Moon’s conflict to Uranus should put everything into perspective for you at the start of the weekend. Tomorrow’s (Saturday’s) conjunction between the Moon and Pluto will help you to rebuild your confidence and put you back in the driving seat. Mars enters the sign of Cancer on Tuesday when you can kiss the past goodbye.
SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)
You may be tempted to overspend today (Friday) while planning lavish entertainment but there is no need to push the boat out too far to create a good impression. Your good will and personality will take you as far as you need to go. You are poised to enjoy a relaxing day with family and friends on Sunday in preparation for a busy week ahead. From Tuesday onwards, it is all systems go, particularly where business is concerned.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)
The pressure seems to be off but you should not sit back and do nothing! Your weekend may be physically demanding and may involve much coming and going in your domain. Monday morning can be well spent in reorganising your weekly routine in preparation for Tuesday. The Moon joins hands with Neptune on Wednesday, which brings the promise of romance for the unattached and inspiration to those with some artistic streaks.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)
There may be confusion in your field of communication today (Friday) and you could be easily irritated by the smallest of misunderstandings. If you can hold your horses and refrain from firing any angry responses, you will successfully ride the storm. The Moon enters your sign on Saturday, which portends a pleasant evening and a peaceful Sunday. Monday and Tuesday are days when things should go your way in business.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)
This past month may have been financially tricky and you will be glad to see the back of it! Saturday’s Moon moves to join hands with the powerful Pluto, which indicates the working of unseen cosmic forces which will be helpful to you. Your confidence may have taken a knock but you will be poised to reinvent yourself from Tuesday. Thursday is your lucky day in more ways than one, particularly if you happen to be unattached.
