LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)
You might have the feeling that you authority is being undermined, particularly when younger family members put up some slight resistance to your plans for the weekend. The Full Moon could instigate a change of heart on Monday morning, which might turn out to make you a trifle unpopular but the alternative could be a lot worse. Now might be a good time for you to take a break from the routine and have some fun, or at least make plans for a holiday.
VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)
Venus turns retrograde in your sign on the 27th, which should give you an opportunity to tie up any loose ends in your personal relationships. The Moon’s aspect to Mars on Saturday is likely to kindle a flame of passion for those inclined towards a romantic weekend. Monday’s Full Moon could give you an idea, which will help to resolve a financial problem and you will have the confidence to carry it off on Tuesday. You could be in for a surprise on Thursday.
LIBRA (Sep 23 to Oct 23)
The past is likely to enter the picture, in some way, as your ruling planet Venus turns retrograde at the start of the weekend. You will probably reminisce about how things used to be. However, Sunday’s Moon, in harmony with the fiery Mars, will awaken you to present conditions and strengthen your resolve to make changes. You would be wise to refrain from making a hasty financial decision on Tuesday morning. Your perspective will be a lot clearer on Thursday.
SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)
You might not see eye to eye with your partner on Friday as Venus turns retrograde, which could trigger a discord between you. There is likely to be a storm brewing over the weekend and you will strive to be restrained, for the sake of keeping the peace. It might be a good idea for you to air your differences after Monday’s Full Moon. The fiery Mars moves to do battle with Saturn on Wednesday, which will cause you to run out of energy, unless you take it easy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)
You might have trouble letting go of a subject that you feel strongly about but now is not the time to waste energy arguing. You must get your priorities right, particularly when it comes to your financial affairs. A spanner could be thrown into the works on Saturday and you will need all your mental faculties to find a solution. The fiery Mars is subdued by Saturn, which might scupper plans on Wednesday. A touch of spice to your personal life is likely on Thursday.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)
Business seems to be booming and you might feel that you are making progress, at last. However, the retrograde motion of Venus is likely to slow things down for a short time, but I strongly advise you not to lose heart because things will pick up again before too long. Monday morning is likely to present you with a challenge, financially speaking, but if you sit tight and do nothing, the situation will have taken on a different perspective by Wednesday.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)
It might be a good idea for you to slow down for a day or two before your energy deserts you. Venus turns retrograde on Friday, which is likely to leave you feeling a bit run down. Monday’s Full Moon, in your sign, could signify the necessity for you to make a U-turn and take an alternative route. Tuesday is a time for you to give some serious thought to any plans you might have for future development or projects of a business nature.
PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)
There might be another way out of your current difficulties, as will prove to be the case at the start of the weekend. You only have to have more faith in your own abilities and ignore those who try to tell you that they know better! Monday’s Full Moon brings out the ingenious side to your nature, enabling you to wipe the board clean and start afresh. Otherwise, the effects from Wednesday’s conflict, between Mars and Saturn, are likely to linger for several weeks.
ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)
The retrograde movement of Venus might cause you a temporary headache or two on Friday and I recommend that you take it easy on Saturday. The Moon’s aspect to Mars is likely to restore your energy somewhat and rejuvenate your enthusiasm for life, which will help to offset the effects of Monday’s Full Moon. You might encounter some difficulty in your monetary dealings on Tuesday and you should think twice before committing your name to paper.
TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)
Friday could turn out to be quite taxing on your energies, as Venus, your ruling planet, turns retrograde. The weekend is likely to see you dealing with practical matters on the home front, such as malfunctioning household appliances! However, if it all gets too much you can always eat out. Sunday looks better altogether, with peace and harmony reinstated and contentment on the faces around you. The Full Moon makes Monday a day for the unattached to find fulfillment.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)
Now is a good time to mend fences and make the best of your enclosed situation. You were born with a nature that requires constant movement as you dislike being grounded or bogged down and, unfortunately, this is not a week where you can move forward. However, that does not mean that you cannot progress. The Full Moon gives you ample scope to prepare for your next venture, in practical and legal terms, so that you have everything ready to go.
CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22))
You might be put out slightly when your plans for the weekend go awry but it is no use looking for a culprit. The only thing you can do is to accept things as they are, with a good grace, and put it down to circumstances beyond your control. Your imagination is likely to be working overtime on Monday morning following the Full Moon and you must try not to let it create havoc in your mind. Monday evening is a good time for making new contacts and meeting people.
