CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)
You might feel a little restless this weekend, due to Saturday’s Full Moon in your opposite sign of Capricorn. Consider a change of scene for a day or two, to give yourself a break from the obstacles that beset you in the wake of Mercury’s retrograde movement. Things are set to improve after Tuesday’s conjunction between the Moon and Neptune, which could lighten the atmosphere on the home front. Romance is in the air for the unattached on Tuesday evening.
LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)
Someone might put a damper on your plans on Saturday, and you are advised to remain as circumspect as possible because any display of anger is likely to affect your standing in the community in general. If you can keep a cool head, you will win the respect and admiration of those who matter to you. If you happen to be unattached, you could be all set for a romantic encounter on Tuesday evening, when the Moon joins hands with Neptune.
VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)
You might run into someone, with whom you share a common interest, this weekend, particularly if you happen to be unattached. However, I would advise you take things slowly, before committing yourself to something that could turn out to become a burden. Mercury, your ruling planet, is still retrograde, in the sign of Cancer, requiring you to approach any new concepts with a degree of caution, but Thursday morning should bring you to your senses.
LIBRA (Sep 23 to Oct 23)
Although you might have the feeling that time is running out, I can assure you that this is only an illusion. Mischievous Mercury is up to his old tricks, which might slow your attempts to make progress, but not for much longer. You are likely to get a break on Wednesday morning, bringing you a window of opportunity to clear most of the obstacles that lie between you and your goal. The unattached are favoured, on Thursday, when the Moon joins hands with Uranus.
SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)
The Moon’s conjunction to Pluto, your ruling planet, is likely to cause some concern in the financial sense on Friday, and muddy the waters in your solar house of partnership. Saturday’s Full Moon offers little consolation, but there is no need for desperate measures to be taken, as Sunday brings the light of reason. You are cautioned against parting with your hard earned cash, on Tuesday, when Neptune is likely to cloud your judgement.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)
Things will come to a head this afternoon (Friday), when the Moon joins hands with Pluto in your sign. You are advised not to take any impulsive steps, financially speaking, on Saturday’s Full Moon. Your ruling planet, Jupiter, influences the unattached on Monday evening, by lending a touch of romance to the proceedings. You might encounter some disruption at home when Thursday’s Moon falls under the influence of the quirky Uranus.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)
You might not see eye to eye with your partner over money matters this weekend, and Saturday is likely to highlight some differences and obstruct your attempts at reaching a compromise. The Sun’s aspect to Draconis on Sunday will help repair the damage and you will be inspired on Tuesday to take a chance on a long shot. Your tolerance levels could be on the low side on Thursday, so try to keep cool, especially when dealing with friends.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)
One or two snags could crop up this weekend and you might convince yourself that your interpretation of a statement is fact and that the other party is wrong. Mercury’s retrograde motion, together with Saturday’s Full Moon, could create some misunderstandings and your best bet would be to retreat with a good book for a day, if at all possible. Monday will restore your faith in yourself and in human nature! Wednesday might land you with some extra cash.
PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)
You might begin by feeling a little under the weather this week but your energy will return soon. Nevertheless, this month’s Full Moon is likely to upset your thought processes and lead you along a trail of confusion for a day or two. Monday looks more promising and you will be pleasantly surprised at the end of the day. Wednesday is likely to bring a smile to your face, when you receive praise for your actions coupled with an apology of sorts.
ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)
You should not be surprised to find yourself running short of patience on Friday but if you manage to maintain a dignified poise, you will ride the storm out. The situation will resolve itself after Saturday’s Full Moon, and Sunday’s harmonious aspects will afford you a good sleep, so that you are calm and collected on Monday morning. The air is filled with nostalgia when you take a trip down memory lane on Tuesday. Thursday brings news that could change your life.
TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)
Your plans for the weekend might have to be put on hold, due to a technical hitch which might have something to do with Mercury’s retrograde motion. There is little point in getting yourself wound up over something that is beyond your control, so relax and enjoy the scenery! Sunday could turn out to be a perfect day for spending with family and friends and Tuesday’s opposition between the Moon and Neptune, is likely to bring out your creative abilities.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)
Your restless nature is highlighted by this month’s Full Moon. You will probably feel the need to go somewhere on Saturday, but the reality could be that current circumstances are keeping you grounded and you will have to accept things as they are for the time being. Your ruling planet, Mercury, is retrograde in the sign of Cancer, which could give you the feeling that you are being held back but Wednesday brings you an opportunity to change things for the better.
