ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)
Friday’s (today’s) Moon moves to challenge Uranus, which could cause things to go a bit awry. This is likely to add fuel to the fire over the course of the weekend. We are told that everything happens for a reason but the reason for this debacle is likely to remain a mystery for a while. However, Monday’s Moon enters Aquarius, which will take the heat out of the situation. Wednesday will inspire you to dream up a remedy for your malaise.
TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)
You might wonder whether some of those around you have lost all sense of reason this afternoon (Friday). Your plans for the weekend are likely to be thwarted but you should not let it drive you to extreme measures. Romance is in the air for the unattached on Tuesday evening but it might be short lived. Mercury enters the sign of Aries and challenges Pluto on Thursday morning, when you are advised against lengthy discussions with people in authority.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)
You may experience a setback in your recently made progress at the start of the weekend and you could find yourself in a state of upheaval on Sunday. It is important that you keep your head and retain a sense of proportion during this tricky phase because things will begin to sort themselves out next week. Mercury enters the sign of Aries, on Wednesday afternoon, throwing down the gauntlet to challenge Pluto, which will get things moving for you.
CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)
It seems likely that someone will say something to cause offence today (Friday) but you are advised not to let it eat away at you for the entire weekend. Mars is challenged by the Sun on Sunday, which could lead you into a fierce debate at home. Monday’s Moon enters the sign of Aquarius, which will hopefully help to bring about a truce. If you happen to be unattached Thursday’s Moon promises a little bit of romance.
LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)
The effect of the Moon’s brush with Uranus is likely to throw a spanner in the works today (Friday), in the financial sense. Avoid situations that require spending more than you have in your pocket because money may not flow with ease next week. Monday could turn out to be a bit disappointing in the business sense and Tuesday could be much the same. Wednesday should help you to choose the right words and express yourself freely at the right time.
VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)
Tonight’s (Friday’s) Moon might induce some strange behaviour from others around you and it’s no use banging your head against a brick wall when the only reaction you will get is indifference. The Sun’s conflict to Mars on Sunday is likely to provoke you more and you may blow your top but this is no bad thing and you will feel better for it. Tuesday is likely to be productive for regaining your mental faculties.
LIBRA (Sep 23 to Oct 23)
There may be a bit of tension at work today (Friday). There will, no doubt, be some sort of skirmish between younger family members tomorrow evening, due to a build up of tension. Monday’s Moon, in the sign of Aquarius, will go a long way to restoring peace and quiet. Some uplifting tidings on the financial front will make all the difference to an important meeting on Wednesday. The unattached are favoured by the Moon, on Thursday evening.
SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)
You are likely to be given a wake up call this weekend. You always like to believe the best of people, which is a noble attitude to adopt but if you discover that someone is playing you for a fool, that person will inevitably experience the sting in your tail. Monday’s Moon should help to restore good relations. If you happen to be waiting for some news, Tuesday should help things along on the communication front. You should take things at a leisurely pace on Thursday.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)
Your expectations can be too high as tonight’s (Friday’s) Moon will demonstrate. You may feel disappointed when your efforts are confounded on Sunday afternoon. Monday’s Moon will give you an opportunity to put things into perspective. Tuesday could bring some interesting news from an old friend and also encourage you to get away for the day. The unattached could meet someone with a refreshingly different outlook on life.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)
Today (Friday) is likely to beset you with petty irritants but nothing will prevent you from enjoying yourself this evening, especially for the unattached. The Sun’s conflict to Mars may cause disruptions between you and your partner so try to avoid pointless retaliation. Monday is business as usual and could turn out to be quite fruitful. A trip may have to be postponed temporarily on Thursday morning, as Mercury clashes with Pluto to add to your frustration.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)
You may feel you have been dealt a poor hand but the tables are about to turn. Yours is about the only sign that will benefit from today’s (Friday’s) aspects between the Moon, Venus and your ruling planet, Uranus. You will handle a tricky situation on Sunday with your usual tenacity. A business meeting should produce the results you hoped for on Wednesday morning. Thursday evening should be set aside for a romantic dinner for two.
PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)
Venus and Uranus join hands only to be challenged by the Moon tonight (Friday), which could cause chaos at home. On the positive side, it will certainly sort the wheat from the chaff in your relationships. Sunday’s Sun clashes with Mars, which could leave you feeling a bit shell-shocked with the desire to retreat for the evening. Your head will clear on Monday morning and you might be surprised at Tuesday’s results. Wednesday sheds a romantic light.
