CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)

Without doubt you are ahead of the game at present and there seems to be no stopping you. However, Mars enters your sign on Tuesday night to reinforce your resolve and boost your energy and as a result, you will become a tower of strength. The Moon enters your sign on Wednesday and joins hands with Mars, which is likely to cause a bit of a stir in your personal relationships, particularly when you are forced to put your foot down.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)

This weekend’s conflict between the Moon and Saturn will show you where you stand in the scheme of things. You might have to rethink and restructure your plans for this week when Monday’s Moon generates some disruption on the home front. Mars changes signs on Tuesday night, entering the practical sign of Capricorn, which will help to hold things steady for a while. Wednesday is promising for career changes and business matters.

PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)

You are likely to find yourself completely incapable of making a decision on Sunday. Keep your counsel and wait until Tuesday before delivering a verdict. Wednesday’s conjunction between the Moon and Mars is likely to put you on the spot. Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning are favourable for business and legal transactions, as long as you remember to read the small print thoroughly before signing on the dotted line!

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)

Mars joins hands with the powerful Pluto on Saturday, which could bring about a reunion of some sort. However, no matter what the circumstances, you are likely to find yourself on top form this weekend. Mars changes signs on Tuesday night alerting your sensibilities to the practical side of life. If you happen to be unattached and in search of a partner Venus and Neptune  join hands on Thursday night, to help you on your way.

TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)

The Moon is at odds with your ruling planet Venus on Saturday morning, which could throw you momentarily out of kilter. However, Uranus intervenes and brings you a flash of inspiration. Monday’s Moon brings an opportunity for you to take a fresh look at an old scenario and bring it to a satisfactory conclusion. On Wednesday you can really feel that your New Year’s resolutions are taking effect and you will be able to move forward with a new plan or project.

GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 21)

There is likely to be a bit of a storm brewing in your solar house of romantic attachments on Saturday as the Moon is in conflict with Venus. Monday’s Moon moves to join hands with the powerful Pluto, giving you an opportunity to get your point of view across to the best effect. Monday is also a good day for business transactions and, if you are well prepared, you will achieve the desired results on Wednesday and celebrate on Thursday.

CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)

Family members are likely to be a source of irritation this weekend due to the Moon and Venus being at odds in your solar house of joint financial commitments. The only solution would be for you to go it alone. The Moon’s aspect to the powerful Pluto on Tuesday is likely to ignite the flames of passion in one way or another, depending on your circumstances but, I guarantee, that it will not be dull!  Wednesday’s Moon is likely to encourage you to be practical.

LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)

The Moon’s brush with Venus on Saturday morning is followed by yet another clash with Saturn. This is likely to put the cat among the pigeons and scupper your plans for the weekend. However, Mars steps in and ensures that you have a cracking good evening to compensate for the earlier debacle. Things are likely to calm down by Monday morning when it is business as usual. Tuesday is a good time to get to grips with your financial situation and balance the books.

VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)

There are times when you wish you could worry less and let your hair down. Saturday night is a good time to start. You might be a little short of energy on Sunday morning as the Moon and Saturn are at odds for a while in your solar houses of health and communication. Mercury enters the sign of Aquarius on Monday evening, which should help to alleviate any worries that you might have in the workplace.

LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 23)

Despite the fact that you constantly put on a brave face, you still have not achieved peace of mind. Perhaps you are not quite in harmony with your current surroundings, which can have quite a dampening effect.  This coming week holds the key to your future and you will have a better idea as to how to proceed after the conjunction between the Moon and Pluto on Wednesday night

SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)

You might feel inclined to cancel any plans that you might have for Saturday, as it looks all too complicated. However, if you can hold back for a few hours before making a decision you are likely to navigate your way through the sea of complications and enjoy a good evening’s entertainment. Your skills will come in handy on Monday when a friend requests your help to deal with a tricky situation. Thursday is a time when you can pull rabbits out of hats.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)

There is more than one way for you to achieve your objective this week, but you will be required to stay cool, calm and collected, in order for you to maintain control of the situation. A visit from a friend on Saturday afternoon helps to restore your sensibility and your perspective on life. Things are considerably calmer on the home front as Monday dawns when Jupiter joins hands with the Moon. Wednesday holds promise in the sphere of business and finance as long as you look before you leap.
