SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)
There is likely to be a degree of tension around the home front as the Moon challenges the Sun on Saturday morning. Take this as an opportunity to sort out any misunderstandings that might have occurred the previous day. Monday’s Moon favours business and financial transactions, as long as you are patient and do not hurry things along! Relationships might suffer on Tuesday but you will have the opportunity to kiss and make up under a starlit sky on Thursday evening.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)
Your patience might be wearing a bit thin this weekend after the pressure of Friday’s debacle. Other members of your household are likely to be a trifle uncooperative but I am sure that you will assert your authority and have things shipshape in no time. You should avoid being persuaded to indulge in lavish spending on Monday evening and Tuesday morning, as you will probably regret it later on in the week. Lady Luck will be holding your hand on Thursday.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)
Saturday’s conflict, between the Sun and the Moon, will very likely provoke a difference of opinion in your domain over something you overlooked. Your best bet would be to admit culpability in order to avoid a full scale battle that can only end with you having egg on your face. The Moon joins hands with Uranus on Monday, which will inspire you to look at something that you set aside recently.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)
Someone might surprise you on Saturday but you might take it the wrong way. Take a deep breath and count to 10 before hitting the roof! Your ruling planet, Uranus, is courted by the Moon on Monday, which bodes well for your romantic and social life. Wednesday might be a good time to wrap up a business deal, particularly where land development and property are concerned.
PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)
You may feel disgruntled on Saturday as you wonder if someone is taking advantage of you. But if you stop for a minute, you will realise that no one is twisting your arm! The planetary aspects will help to see things differently on Saturday, giving you scope to enjoy Sunday. The Moon’s conjunction to Uranus on Monday takes place in your sign, opening the way for fresh negotiations, in the commercial sense. Wednesday is promising with a bonus on the cards.
ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)
Mars, your ruling planet, turned retrograde yesterday (Thursday), giving you an opportunity to retrace you steps to tie up any loose ends. The Moon’s challenge to the Sun on Saturday is likely to cause you frustration. The situation should not last long and things sort themselves out by Monday afternoon. The Moon enters your sign around midday on Tuesday, giving you a free hand in the commercial and financial sense. Your home life also improves on Wednesday.
TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)
Your normally pragmatic nature is likely to shift on the wild side at the start of the weekend. Whatever your current circumstances might be, you will cause a few raised eyebrows but I believe the outcome will be beneficial all round. Monday’s Moon joins hands with Uranus before moving into conflict with Jupiter, when you may be in danger of throwing away what you have gained. Thursday’s Moon enters your sign to assist you in making any necessary repairs.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)
Mercury, your ruling planet, moves into aspect with Saturn on Friday night, which might tie you down for the whole of Saturday. Your nature dislikes to be standing still for too long but you may have to comply with the circumstances that lie beyond your control – relax! The pace will quicken on Monday as the Moon brushes with Uranus to inspire you and then clashes with Jupiter to restrict you yet again. Wednesday will see a return of your energy along with your freedom.
CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)
Friday’s aspect, between Mercury and Saturn, could bring some thought provoking information. The Moon’s conjunction to Neptune on Saturday is likely to give you some new insight into a partnership issue. Perhaps you have been too hard on yourself and this has been reflected in your personal relationships. Monday is not a good time to make important decisions.
LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)
The Moon challenges your ruler, the Sun, on Saturday, which might light the fuse in readiness for an altercation on the home front, and which is likely to affect your evening plans. Monday’s aspects seem to suggest that you should expect the unexpected and do your best to be flexible, in the circumstances. Things will start to iron themselves out on Tuesday afternoon as long as you do not try to force anything. Pluto’s influence is providential in your dealings on Thursday.
VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)
The aspect between Mercury, your ruling planet, and Saturn is likely to give you an air of calm on Friday, which will work to your advantage, particularly in business. However, there could be some tension on Saturday between friends when you could be required as an intermediary. Monday’s conjunction between the Moon and Uranus, in your opposite sign of Pisces, might encourage you to take another look at someone.
LIBRA (Sep 23 to Oct 23)
You might have been kept in the dark recently but Friday will bring a glimmer of light into the working of events that have been going on. You now seem to be standing on the brink of success following your hard work of the past five years. Neptune has been influential in blocking your path but this phase is about to pass. Monday’s Moon joins hands with Uranus to rekindle your interest this week in something that you had formerly dismissed.
