Find out what the stars have in store for you this week...


Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19) 


Although the Sun leaves your sign this week to enter Taurus, you won’t feel any less enterprising. However, you should focus on consolidating what you have put together so far. Ensure that the seams of your current project won’t start unraveling. There’s good news on the horizon, but don’t let any revelries begin until you’ve got official confirmation. You may be tempted to push the boat out prematurely, but you have duties and debts to honour first. Some self-indulgence is called for, but don’t over-stuff yourself!

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)


You’re on a roll as both fertile Venus and the radiant Sun enter your sign this week. Now you should be able to see your glass as half full and take confident steps to ensure it’s full to overflowing! It’s also a time for sowing plans or developing personal relationships. You can be sure of a fruitful outcome when harvesting comes. Even seeds that you sow in unpromising soil will grow as long as your nurture of them is careful. The time is ripe for taking modest financial risks, provided you’re solvent. Speculate, but don’t go for broke!

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)


Fluent Gemini is governed by Mercury, planet of communications and consequently you usually have a lot to say for yourself. This week, your urge to air your opinions is strengthened. However, your freedom of speech must factor in the feelings of others. They too have opinions which count for something. Don’t always deride views different from your own. Your other main weakness is that you love spouting a deluge of verbal diarrhea on your favourite subject — yourself! Let others blow your trumpet for you.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22


The Moon, at loggerheads with Mars, Neptune and Uranus this week, indicates the possibility of accidents. A sensitive creature, the crab is well equipped to side-step threats. Nevertheless, be sure to err on the side of caution and carry an early warning device. This would ensure you can be fully possessed of the facts in tricky situations. In the face of danger, people are apt to react in bizarre ways which might jeopardize your own position. A discreet withdrawal is your best option, although you may have to account for this later.

Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)


Frenetic lunar activity heralds a busy week in which you find yourself pulled in all directions. Keep a sense of balance and resist any efforts to be sidetracked by non-essentials. Limit your appointments to fixed times. Keep your eye on the ball. If you want to score goals, don’t stray off-side. People envious of your abilities could attempt to halt your progress by obstruction. Use the wing to outflank the opposition’s defence. Your sense of fair play and high standards make you an engaging team player. In the game of life, play to win!

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)


The lack of significant Mercurial activity in your horoscope this week indicates an inability to express your inner feelings. You know what you’re expected to say, but seem tongue-tied. You find yourself torn between finding peace of mind and showing concern for others. Don’t be overly anxious about what other people will think of you: they have too much on their own minds to worry about your inner turmoil. Focus on a routine and stay away from awkward equations. There’s nothing to be gained in making pointless confessions.

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)


Don’t just live for the moment when the future lasts much longer. There’s considerable cosmic activity in the Eighth House that governs work which marks a point when a change of location can be considered. While you may find this daunting, you can request time to think about the direction in which you’d like your life to move. You need to get your emotions under control and let your head rule your heart. The formula that works best for you is a balanced analysis of all the angles. This should enable you to strike while the iron’s hot.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)


Although the Moon is at odds with most of the major planets this week, a powerful Lunar-Pluto alignment should unleash your inner strengths. There are vibrations in the air that only the scorpion can interpret. You should find yourself spot-on when it comes to solving an impasse. Secretly, you have always wanted to shine and win plaudits, but shyness has held you back. There’s more to you than meets the eye and next week’s Moon in Scorpio signals that people with influence will start blowing your trumpet for you.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)


There’s obvious disquiet in the heavens and this is bound to affect your peace of mind. However, the cosmic grumbles are not aimed as a criticism of you personally. It’s natural for you to feel a nervous anticipation at this time of the year. You are, despite private misgivings, ready to move on and venture toward pastures anew. Take the opportunity to leave your stable environment, travel or move into a different location when the chance presents itself with the Moon next week. The centaur requires freedom and change to avoid stagnation and it possesses the persistence and staying power to make the most of diverse challenges. Don’t worry — your intrepid spirit and dogged determination won’t let you down!

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)


The passage of the Sun into down-to-earth Taurus this week underlines the importance of forward planning and sticking to a fixed objective… once you have identified where you want things to go. Where others dither at delays, you should be able to make forward progressa under your own steam.  A Lunar-Saturn conjunction tomorrow should provide insight regarding where to start and how to proceed. As long as you don’t stop to pick up any hangers-on, you’ll go far. You can’t afford to pay for excess baggage. By the end of a busy week, you will be surprised by the amount you have achieved and the distance you have traveled. Don’t bother looking back over your shoulder because no one can overtake you in the fast lane.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18) 


This week sees seductive Venus in the love angle of your horoscope. With such a galactic giant in your corner, you are blessed indeed. You should find yourself extremely popular and more than able to charm the birds off the trees. Artistic or Romantic expression are especially well starred, but be careful that you don’t take the smooth, silver-tongued charm offensive over the top or you might find yourself swamped with too many offers. The best course is to target who you want to impress and arrange an informal and private encounter. Don’t let yourself get physical or over-emotional. Allow the atmospheric ambience and the music to do the talking. You’ll be absolutely irresistible — a real knockout!

Pisces (Feb 19- Mar 20)

Monday’s lunar confrontation with your ruler Neptune should calm you down a little and stop you from trying to take things at breakneck speed. You should put your commitments on the back burner and take a breather. The fact that you have been a shining example to others in terms of what you’ve achieved doesn’t mean you have to keep on going forever. You’re not a lifeguard on the night shift and are entitled to some enjoyment and self-indulgence. It might be hard to find a cut-off point and off-load your sense of responsibility, but you’ll wind up washed up if you don’t. No one is indispensable and the sooner others realize that they have to swim unaided the better.
