YOUR WEEK AHEAD

 

 

Monday 14th – Sunday 20th December 2015

Uranus the Awakener is heavily aspected this week, giving us plenty of turmoil and unexpected turns of event, plus pre-Christmas partying, gatherings and meetings.

ARIES THE RAM ( 21 March – 20 April)

Be ready to deal with all kinds of changes and surprising incidents, but that will be no bother to you, as you are one person who can easily take action on the spur of the moment. It might mean treading on someone’s toes, however. There is also a pre-arranged meeting at which you will be extremely affable and accommodating. Other people continue to call the shots in your life – for the moment. 

TAURUS THE BULL (21 April – 21 May)

You are still very stubborn and refusing to consider new, or different, ideas, even although you know that the decisions are not really up to you. Someone offers a possibility that seems to you quite radical – or else they actually take precipitate action. Show your compassion and understanding – the opportunity is there. A serious conversation should see you shifting your ground, in the end.

GEMINI THE TWINS (22 May – 21 June)

Make a major move this week, Gemini. Many of you will be changing your location and this is pre-arranged and unavoidable. You tend to be in a sombre mood now and thinking of the past. However, you are working towards a very festive and active time, next week. You should deal with unexpected expenses easily, as you have the cash in hand. Show your co-operative side, as you row in with other people.

CANCER THE CRAB (22 June – 23 July)

On Monday, do what your partner wants and help with some tidying up and sorting out. Then, check your financial affairs, especially insurance or investments – the outlook is cheerful, there, although you will have to do some spending. Late in the week is good for travelling, but make careful preparations, as you’re likely to be absent-minded. The weekend brings a different outlook and lively company.

LEO THE LION (24 July – 23 August)

You are in an expansive and generous mood, eager to cover some miles and be helpful to other people. You will certainly be on the move this week, even if you have a lot of work to do. Prepare to deal with a certain amount of chaos and a trip that may not go exactly according to plan. You are very busy indeed, mostly  because you are following someone else’s agenda.

VIRGO THE MAIDEN (24 August – 23 September)

You are particularly hard-working and conscientious this week, even where fun and frivolity are concerned. (You are always the one making the sandwiches, or packing the dishwasher!) Still, people are helpful and generous now and someone is returning an invitation they owe to you. Connect with people you haven’t seen in ages!  Somehow you can’t help thinking a lot about the past, this week.

LIBRA THE SCALES (24 September – 23 October)

You are unusually stubborn and determined now, even though your usual accommodating outlook might serve you better. You may try to stick to your own ideas, when everyone is running riot around you. Don’t be the one toiling in the background while everyone else is having fun – nobody will thank you for it.  A change of location is coming up for you.

SCORPIO THE SCORPION  (24 October – 22 November)

You have been feeling, in recent years, as though you have few choices and although you certainly need to work hard, the boundaries you are observing are largely self-imposed. You have been dealing well with the ups and downs in your working life, partly through a bit of subterfuge. Have a serious chat at the beginning of the week and then join forces and take joint action.

SAGITTARIUS THE ARCHER  (23 November – 21 December)

You need to stop overthinking things and trying to do too much, too perfectly. This week you are all business, overseeing changes in your career and adjusting your plans when things go awry. Be assured that you are in a fortunate year and little you do will go wrong if you retain your natural optimism and willingness to exploit an opportunity when it arises.  People are quietly helpful to you now.

CAPRICORN THE GOAT (22 December – 20 January)

It is good to have hopes and dreams, but it is less helpful to be  thinking up all kinds of things that could go wrong, so try to rein in your imagination and instead, do a bit of creative visualisation to make sure your life proceeds happily and successfully. Your mind is working overtime, especially in considering ways to  bring happiness to other people. You could be taking a long journey this week.

AQUARIUS THE WATER CARRIER (21 January – 19 February)

You are still going through a brilliant “can do” phase and you seem to want to carry other people along with you as you go; you are certainly in a leadership role. You are very organised and using any negative thoughts to spur yourself on to greater efforts. You will not be mincing your words this week and while this can be very funny, it can also be hurtful to certain people, so take care.

PISCES THE FISHES (20 February – 20 March)

Like Capricorn, you seem bent on imagining the worst this week, or at least setting up rules for yourself which are quite unnecessary. Support is available from some kind people, maybe your partner’s relatives. Those around you are fortunate and cheerful and eager to share what they have with you. A change of location looks good now, probably via a flight.

YOUR WEEK AHEAD

F67889

Monday 7th – Sunday 13th December 2015

Little Mercury, messenger of the gods, is transiting out of fiery, extroverted Sagittarius and into Earthy, introverted Capricorn on Thursday. This could well slow you down a little, as you begin to think more seriously about life, love and loot and to do only what is necessary, practical and traditional between now and 5th January. There is also a New Moon on Friday 11th December, joining the Sun in Sagittarius and bringing a wonderful mood of happiness and optimism. Many of you will be travelling this week, in harmony with the New Moon.

ARIES THE RAM ( 21 March – 20 April)

You still need to be really co-operative and this helps you to forge ahead with joint projects and to get along with people who might otherwise be quite difficult to deal with. You may have to let someone else call the shots, however, which may not please you and you might want to rebel in some way. However, you’

ll have the chance to make everything okay, if you want to do that. This is a good week for you to be travelling and to enjoy someone else’s hospitality.

TAURUS THE BULL (21 April – 21 May)

Like Aries, you too will be doing what other people want, but you should find it rather more enjoyable. Firstly, instead of clashing with others, you’ll meet with a great deal of appreciation. Show your artistic and creative side this week and enjoy some nights out, maybe listening to music, going to the movies, or having a drink with friends. Take a trip this week, too, in good company, to visit someone you love. Take a fresh look at your finances and accept a fun invitation.

GEMINI THE TWINS (22 May – 21 June)

Your festive mood becomes rather more serious from Friday, as you settle down to doing what is necessary, to assessing your cash situation and to helping out someone who is feeling poorly. However, it will not stop you from doing some very active socialising and having a lot of laughs with your friends. Keep an eye on kids who want to go a little crazy! Get involved in some artistic or charitable work, which you will really enjoy. Unattached Geminis could find new love this week! Or maybe make a new friend.

CANCER THE CRAB (22 June – 23 July)

The New Moon brings a different look to your working life this week and for some, this means it’s the Christmas party, with all your workmates. You might need to sort out some matters at home before you can attend, however. A few surprises may arise in your job and you may find you have some extra responsibilities. (Let’s hope this goes along with a raise.) You can have fun with the children in your life too – the New Moon in Sagittarius will encourage you to do some clowning around!

LEO THE LION (24 July – 23 August)

You’re in a real party mood at present and the New Moon ensures there’ll be a particular highly entertaining event this week for you to attend. It may involve your travelling quite a distance and perhaps even moving to a different place for a while. Are you having Christmas away somewhere, or just paying your respects to friends and relations at this time? Send your Christmas cards and contact everyone now in whatever way you fancy. Some of them have not heard from you for a while!

VIRGO THE MAIDEN (24 August – 23 September)

On Thursday, your focus shifts from your home and family to more frivolous matters and you’ll be spending the next few weeks doing a bit of partying. It will involve some work for you, however – maybe you’ll be showing off your culinary skills as you carry your latest creation to the house of a friend, or maybe you’ll be organising an event. There’s certainly someone marking a big occasion in their lives this week. You could be dong some child minding, too!

LIBRA THE SCALES (24 September – 23 October)

You continue to be very involved in your work, but you’re moving towards quite a large and impressive conclusion. Use your artistic and creative skills and things will go really well. You have money in your pocket, but it will be very easy for you to spend it, this week. From Thursday, you stop running around quite so much and begin to pay closer attention to your household and your family. Someone may be sick this week and will need your help.

SCORPIO THE SCORPION  (24 October – 22 November)

You’re on the move this week: why not take yourself off to a little hideout where nobody will disturb you? You could do with a rest! It’s also a great week to head off to a big gathering – hopefully, a party!  You are, in fact, in a very sociable and pleasant frame of mind right now. Take an opportunity to attend a cultural event in good company. The New Moon brings changes in your job – you may be ending a project, or just starting your Christmas break.

SAGITTARIUS THE ARCHER  (23 November – 21 December)

You continue to prosper in your career and even those of you who are making a change unwillingly will find it turns out to be a change for the better! You’re inclined to look on the negative side these days – let this spur you on to finer efforts, because it will certainly turn out well for you! You may go on a bit of a spending spree this week, so make sure you’re buying wisely and not merely letting money run through your fingers. The New Moon in your sign  gives you a brighter outlook, ready for a new beginning.

CAPRICORN THE GOAT (22 December – 20 January)

Christmas often makes you feel a little sad, so why not put these feelings to good purpose and do something really nice and charitable for people who are in need?  This is also a great time to attend some interesting cultural and artistic events, and to meet siblings, or close friends, for a drink, or a meal. Mercury hovering on your solar ascendant encourages you to contact your mates and go out for some fun. The New Moon gives you a new attitude to life and you may decide to do something quite different concerning your domestic arrangements.

AQUARIUS THE WATER CARRIER (21 January – 19 February)

Don’t be afraid to try new things and to go to new places, as your experimental phase continues apace. You have the chance to visit someone generous now and to enjoy their hospitality – this a great week to go off somewhere, quite a distance from your home. There’s also a big event happening this week which should be fun for you, even if it means some of your favourite people are inaccessible for a while.

PISCES THE FISHES (20 February – 20 March)

There’s a lot of goodwill about this week and as usual, you’re showing how kind and generous you are. However, this time you receive the same treatment in equal measure, which is not always the case for you. You’ll be galloping off to various social functions over the next few weeks, including a very special occasion. The New Moon this week, right on your solar midheaven, brings interesting changes in your career. You may take on a new job, or take some time out – and you are certainly mixing with a lot of great people!

YOUR WEEK AHEAD

full-moon-names

Monday 23rd November – Sunday 29th November 2015

This week there is a Full Moon in Gemini, opposing the Sun, Mercury and Saturn in Sagittarius. It occurs on Wednesday night at 22.44 and it’s all about communications and journeys, messages sent and received, flights, sailings, driving, walking and interaction of all kinds. With Saturn in the mix, planning is indicated, trips are probably essential (or at least scheduled) and messages tend to contain vital information, not always of a light-hearted variety. This Full Moon can also be all about trade and transactions.

ARIES THE RAM ( 21 March – 20 April)

When people seem to be trying to control you, you will make a break for freedom, whether this means running for the hills, or just refusing to listen. The Full Moon may lead you to change your location and you may feel the need to go to someone’s side. Other people are actually being very charming now and showing how much they appreciate you, but you are beginning to suspect some manipulation. Say what you think on Tuesday, even if it does ruffle a few feathers.

TAURUS THE BULL (21 April – 21 May)

You are giving a lot of your time to others these days and this week you find it really disrupts your peace of mind. You do like a regular routine, if  it is at all possible. Make some moves to improve your health – you may have allergies or sensitivities, or you may be just really tired and needing to recharge your batteries. Sort out insurance matters, or any joint financial issues you may have, with the Full Moon. Travel at the weekend is not without its difficulties.

GEMINI THE TWINS (22 May – 21 June)

The full moon in your sign makes you quite nervous and irritable this week and you may not be sleeping well. There is a great deal to do and it is worrying you somewhat. Get organized, make lists and pare things down to the minimum. Enjoy the attention you are receiving and have fun with your busy social life, but don’t try to do everything.  If your imagination is working overtime, try to be calm and logical and to see the situation for what it is.

CANCER THE CRAB (22 June – 23 July)

You are greatly influenced by the moon, your ruling planet and when the moon is full you often become very agitated and over-sensitive. Once you realise that this is a normal cycle for you, you can handle it much better. The full moon brings you to the full realisation of your work and health situation. You have a lot of responsibility and you need to know exactly what is going on before you can organize things to your satisfaction. You are very busy at home, as well as in your job.

LEO THE LION (24 July – 23 August)

Concentrate on having some fun now, especially with the younger generation. Enjoying music, dancing, the arts, the theatre and the movies will all lift your spirits. However, don’t try to cover everything, as a tense aspect to Neptune shows that you could miss your way, or become over-exhausted. The Full Moon brings you a party, or an important meeting.  Plan your activities carefully and try not to scatter your energy too widely. Next week will be extra busy!

VIRGO THE MAIDEN (24 August – 23 September)

Continue to organize your household and to make sure that things are just the way you like them in your surroundings. Stick to the facts in everything you hear, as you are very likely to be led astray by some false or misleading information. This is an important week for you, with the full moon bringing a personal career plan to culmination. You may be trying to fit too much into your day and you need to take care of your health and energy. Make sure you don’t miss your step!

LIBRA THE SCALES (24 September – 23 October)

You continue to dazzle everyone, with Venus smiling from your sign, and you are in great demand socially. Just don’t overdo it, or you will run out of steam. There is a certain amount of chaos around you, but you should manage to sort it out very well. Tidy your home and get rid of anything no longer required. The full moon may bring you a scheduled journey, or it may thrust you into the limelight, as you reveal plans for a communications project. There are far too many thoughts whirling around in your head at the moment. Try to calm down.

SCORPIO THE SCORPION  (24 October – 22 November)

Don’t attempt to do everything too rigidly by the book, because it just won’t work. Expect the unexpected and deal with issues as they arise. Make some positive moves towards dealing with any health problems – getting plenty of rest and sleep is probably the best answer. This will be a very hectic week, so try to list and prioritise as best you can. Deal decisively with financial and property matters, with the full moon this week.

SAGITTARIUS THE ARCHER  (23 November – 21 December)

Stop trying to do everything perfectly and relax!  Moving towards big changes does not have to be accomplished right away. Just take it a step at a time. Enjoy being around friends and family who are eager to show you how much they love you. Show some care and attention to someone who is not well, but don’t forget about your own health and wellbeing, at the same time! Try to be patient with someone who is irritating you, as the full moon could bring a bit of a row!

CAPRICORN THE GOAT (22 December – 20 January)

This is never your best time of the year and you often find yourself  longing to say “Bah! Humbug!” while everyone else is beginning to get the Christmas spirit. Never mind, you will feel much better after 23rd December. Meanwhile, be nice to yourself and if you don’t feel like socialising, it is perfectly okay to say no. Actually, you are working away like one of Santa’s elves behind the scenes, with a big project in mind, and you are finding it exceedingly therapeutic.

AQUARIUS THE WATER CARRIER (21 January – 19 February)

Try to strike a balance between what you want to do and what everyone else wants. You may have to restrain yourself from spending a lot of money now.  There is a way to sort out your financial situation, but you do not like it very much.  Meanwhile, express yourself in new and interesting ways, for all the world to hear.  The full moon is likely to bring you a great party or some other enjoyable event, with people you love.

PISCES THE FISHES (20 February – 20 March)

Stand up and let the world know what you have been thinking and planning, whether this means making a speech, playing the trombone, or somehow displaying your clever ideas.  Decide whether you want to do things your own way, or  whether you want to allow others to make the decisions, for the sake of peace. Try not to spend too freely, as there is a tendency to be extravagant this week, probably on impulse. The full moon may see you with a full house this week, perhaps playing host to some guests.

MARS TRANSITS INTO LIBRA

 

YOUR WEEK AHEADa-person-relaxes-on-a-hammock-stacy-gold

Monday 9th November – Sunday 15th November 2015

A New Moon, on Thursday, in the Fixed Water sign of Scorpio, which will dredge up a lot of emotional stuff we have been concealing, but it will be all for the best, as the New Moon denotes a new start and a different look at things. Thursday also brings a change of venue for mighty Mars, a planet much in the news lately.  Mars is leaving Virgo (where he had us connecting with nature and sorting out business matters) and is transiting into the gentle Air sign of Libra. Here he is not very comfortable, as he is in Detriment,   opposite his own sign of Aries. However, here he may give new impetus to romantic relationships – and also to lawsuits.

ARIES : CARDINAL FIRE ( 21 March – 20 April)

Your ruling planet, fiery Mars, is on the move. For the past seven weeks, he’s been insisting you attend to your work and cover a mass of tasks in great detail. He has also been bringing your attention to your health – and that of someone close to you – and you’ve been looking at a variety of remedies to cure what ails you. Now, however, he slips into Libra, your opposite sign. This may bring some complaints to the surface or it may cause you to take positive action in a close relationship. It will certainly make you express what is on your mind.

TAURUS : FIXED EARTH (21 April – 21 May)

You will be airing your innermost thoughts to someone close to you, with the help of the New Moon in Scorpio, but it will clear the air nicely, even if people are rather surprised by what you have been keeping under your hat. You can sometimes be very passive, but with Mars sticking close to your planet, Venus, you have no choice, but to take action this week. In some cases, a particular project sees the light of day, in others, your creative flair becomes obvious to all.

GEMINI: MUTABLE AIR (22 May – 21 June)

It is certainly a week of revelations and you will be showing a whole new side to yourself, as people sit up and take notice of what you can do. You are using your imagination and your artistic talent in a major way and this feels really good. You dig deep as you begin a new project. A friendship could easily turn into a romance this week, as Mars snuggles up to Venus, but it may not be the easiest of relationships. For some, it is decision time with your significant other.

CANCER : CARDINAL WATER (22 June – 23 July)

Your social life becomes very busy this week and the New Moon will bring a special event marking a particular life transition for someone, whether this is a special birthday, an engagement, a wedding, a birth, or some other big moment. For some of you, your true feelings for someone are revealed at last. You are extremely busy at home, with many things to do. You may be working from home, plus attending to some domestic repairs. Don’t be too abrupt with family members – you will upset them!

LEO : FIXED FIRE (24 July – 23 August)

You are much taken up with your home and your family at the moment and   determined to continue on your chosen path, no matter what distractions may arise. The New Moon brings some very deep and heartfelt conversations with family members or close friends and in some cases there could be a few revelations to absorb. It is all very beneficial, however. Certain matters have been held in for quite some time. Meanwhile, you are very busy in the garden, tending and beautifying your surroundings.

VIRGO : MUTABLE EARTH (24 August – 23 September)

As Mars enters your house of work and income, you become exceedingly busy and focused, but there is someone very agreeable on the spot to help you. Mars may insist you do some big spending – which you sometimes find distressing – but in this case it is essential. The New Moon sees you changing your location and somehow it all looks different, even if you are just returning home from a holiday. Maybe you have merely reached some new decisions about changes you want to implement.

LIBRA : CARDINAL AIR (24 September – 23 October)

As Mars enters your sign, you spring into action, full of new energy and vigour. Sometimes, you are inclined to let things slide, but not this week! You are very aware of things you need to do and you will be getting on with them. The New Moon brings a different look to your working life and you will get the chance to share some heartfelt thoughts and ideas with other people. Some may find your thinking a bit revolutionary, but it looks like you want to share it all with the world, regardless.

SCORPIO : FIXED WATER  (24 October – 22 November)

The New Moon in your sign is very invigorating, but also quite tiring. You are  exceedingly busy, you are covering a lot of ground and you are having some   deep and meaningful conversations, which you love. You like to play your cards close to the chest, but this week you reveal quite a lot about yourself  and you find it a great relief. You are not seeing as much of people you love as you would like. From Thursday, you may find your energy sinking a bit, but you’ll probably push on, regardless.

SAGITTARIUS : MUTABLE FIRE  (23 November – 21 December)

You are concentrating on expanding your sphere of influence this year, whether this means growing your business, or travelling around the world. However, a particularly manic phase is ending this week and you are able to concentrate, instead, on having fun with people you love. You will not forget your responsibilities, however. The New Moon helps you to reveal some well-hidden thoughts and feelings and certain people are very surprised by what you say.

CAPRICORN : CARDINAL EARTH (22 December – 20 January)

The New Moon in Scorpio brings an important social event, which marks a page being turned in someone’s life, as they make some profound changes. You will make a new friend this week, someone both wise and witty. As Mars moves on to the Solar Midheaven of your chart, you are galvanised into action. All those things you knew you should be doing now receive your attention. Luckily, you have someone kind and relaxed to help you make sense of it all. You might even emerge from your self-imposed hibernation!

AQUARIUS : FIXED AIR (21 January – 19 February)

The New Moon bring an important event in your career and it is a chance to show off your artistic and creative abilities. There is no doubt you will be communicating well and you may surprise even yourself with the reception you get. Mars ceases to force you to spend money on matters that may be essential, but seem to have more to do with other people than with yourself. Now you begin instead to think about travelling, in the company of someone you love, or perhaps to visit a loved one.

PISCES : MUTABLE WATER (20 February – 20 March)

For you, the New Moon is likely to herald a trip, probably a flight, which will have a beneficial effect on you and perhaps on someone else, as well. It might be to help someone out, but it certainly improves communications between you. Some are beginning a course of study now, no matter whether you are the student or the teacher.  Mars may be pushing you towards some major spending, but luckily, the money is there.

YOUR WEEK AHEAD

 

 

Monday 26th October – Sunday 1st November 2015

This week, the week leading up to Samhain, there is a Full Moon in the Fixed Earth sign of Taurus. This very earthy sign makes us very aware of the material side of life – our property, our bodies, our money and resources, the food and drink we consume and our creative abilities manifesting in practical form. It is a good time to connect with the earth and all growing things, with animals and all creatures, with our physicality, with all that surrounds us and that our thoughts have manifested for us. Thus we may be finalising business deals, buying new items, improving our homes, visiting a spa, doing a yoga retreat, attending and giving dinner parties and making music and art.

On 31st October it is of course Hallowe’en, or Samhain, one of the four great Fire Festivals of the ancient Celts. At this time, the veil between the worlds is  thin, allowing us to access the spiritual realms with ease. Traditionally, it is a time for scrying, reading the future and contacting those who have passed on, whether this means visiting a medium, or laying flowers on a grave.

ARIES : CARDINAL FIRE ( 21 March – 20 April)

As the week begins, you find it difficult to accomplish your aims, which is frustrating for someone as action-oriented as you. People who want to speak to you, or to meet you, may find they are unable to do so. Around the Full Moon, an important financial transaction takes place. Money you have been expecting comes within your grasp, but you may need it for a specific purpose and it could pass through your hands very rapidly. You are likely to spend Hallowe’en at home, or with your family in domestic surroundings.

TAURUS : FIXED EARTH (21 April – 21 May)

Even although you are feeling very emotional at the time of the Full Moon – or perhaps because of it – this is an excellent time to make up long-standing arguments and to see people who may have been quite distant from you in recent times.  Events may surprise you and this is a great week for a party. Other people are making all the moves at present, but this can be quite relaxing for you, as you await the outcome. You are likely to be on the move at Hallowe’en, maybe socialising with friends and neighbours.

GEMINI: MUTABLE AIR (22 May – 21 June)

As the week begins, you are unable to put your plans into action, which  is rather annoying, especially as these plans affect your social life. By Wednesday you are able to be more gregarious, although your thoughts are rather vague and scattered. Do you actually know what you are doing? You seem very tired, or even unwell. However, the Full Moon brings a change of attitude and a different aspect to your domestic situation as well, although not without considerable upheaval.  Hallowe’en is likely to be celebrated in private this year.

CANCER : CARDINAL WATER (22 June – 23 July)

The Full Moon brings you some important meetings and gatherings. Even although this has been anticipated by you, there is still an element of the unexpected, but there should be a very satisfactory outcome. You are doing a lot of running around here and there, but there is a special purpose to all of your activity. Life does not run very smoothly this week, but at least it is interesting. You love all of the traditional holidays and festivities, so you will be right in your element for Hallowe’en.

LEO : FIXED FIRE (24 July – 23 August)

You begin the week in organizing mode, maybe setting up a social event, but this may be hard to put into action in the end. Mid-week, you are making yourself do something that you would really rather not and it may prove to be  expensive. You don’t have the support you would like, either. However, the Full Moon see you accomplishing quite a big job, despite the difficulties you encounter. You will probably spend the Hallowe’en weekend quietly.

VIRGO : MUTABLE EARTH (24 August – 23 September)

You begin the week by attacking a job you would love to avoid, but you are always conscientious. However, you may find that you cannot follow your plan to the letter, after all. The Full Moon in Taurus sees you taking a trip, but there seems to be some work involved, so it may not be entirely a pleasure trip. Midweek, you use your considerable intelligence and communications skills in a very persuasive manner, in order to get what you want. At Hallowe’en, you are likely to be going out to celebrate.

LIBRA : CARDINAL AIR (24 September – 23 October)

A number of matters get sorted this week, with the assistance of the asteroid Chiron and one of them is your health, which will certainly improve. The Full Moon helps you to sort out your financial situation too, as you find you are better off than you thought. There is some spending to be done,  but at least  some of it is for pleasure. You seem to have more space now, although you are extremely busy reorganizing and recycling. You are likely to be hitting the high spots for Hallowe’en weekend!

SCORPIO : FIXED WATER  (24 October – 22 November)

You are very determined to take charge now, particularly with regard to your environment. Maybe you are knocking your garden into shape, or rearranging your furniture. You may meet with some opposition in your life, from friends or colleagues and the Full Moon will see this come to a head. There are things you must accomplish, although you would much rather be taking it easy. You will be going out for Hallowe’en weekend, maybe even travelling a considerable distance.

SAGITTARIUS : MUTABLE FIRE  (23 November – 21 December)

The Full Moon may bring some tension in your working life and you will be extremely busy. It is not unexpected, however and you do have help and support. Many are completing a specific job now. However, you would certainly prefer to be relaxing and having fun, instead!  You are also attending to your health and there is good news, or a successful treatment for what ails you. You receive an invitation for Hallowe’en weekend – you love dressing up!

CAPRICORN : CARDINAL EARTH (22 December – 20 January)

You begin the week by reluctantly paying a visit to someone, or having a talk you would rather skip. Maybe it is because there is a place you would prefer to be – maybe a concert, or a movie – but that is just not happening. However the Full Moon brings a great social event, probably involving good food and terrific music. At Hallowe’en weekend, other people urge you to join them, so why not go along and let someone else do the organizing?

AQUARIUS : FIXED AIR (21 January – 19 February)

It is hard to hold your tongue this week and you might say something you will later regret. This may be because you are unable to do something you really wanted to do and you think it is someone else’s fault. The pressure is on in the family circle and there could be a bit of an argument. However, certain domestic issues are concluded with the Full Moon, which may be a relief. You may have to work over Hallowe’en weekend – but it could be fun!

PISCES : MUTABLE WATER (20 February – 20 March)

You may be concluding a journey now, at the Full Moon. Other people are organizing things for you and they are delighted to see you. If you are not travelling, then you will instead be improving or enlarging your surroundings, to your delight. Someone gets rather bossy and wants to tell you what to do, so you may have to speak up for yourself. However, you will also receive some very flattering attention. At Hallowe’en weekend, you will be kicking up your heels and having a very good time.

YOUR WEEK AHEAD

 

painting-the-stars

Monday 12th – Sunday 18th October 2015

On Tuesday there is a nice little new Moon in the Cardinal Air sign of Libra , which will bring a new dimension to your relationships, to your ability to co-operate with other people and might even see a new start in your earning power, too. The New Moon traditionally  brings new beginnings and for some,  there will be a new romance.

On another level, this is a time of balance and integration between the essentially Female energy of the Moon in the Venus-ruled sign of Libra and the Male energy of the Sun in the Mars-ruled sign of Aries.

ARIES ( 21 March – 20 April)

It is time to rethink your relationships this week, to renew contact with a family member and to try communicating in a more sympathetic manner with your other half. Adjustments can be made in business relationships, as well, when you talk things through. At the end of the week, you can finish off a project you have been working on and it may mean you will be farewelling a workmate, or even a whole gang of them. You will be feeling very cheerful and optimistic at the weekend and you will do well at whatever you attempt.

TAURUS (21 April – 21 May)

You may be able to finish up a job you have been doing this week, although some of you will be taking on a new one, instead. Take care you are not doing these things simply to be obliging. Someone upsets you at the beginning of the week, or perhaps they are simply telling you some surprising news. At the weekend you will be waving goodbye to someone. Is it you who is heading off on an adventure, or is it someone close to you who is doing so?  You find making big changes difficult, so you may feel out of sorts for a little while.

GEMINI (22 May – 21 June)

Getting together with some interesting people at the beginning of the week is highly enjoyable. Get organized – it is time to sort out business, property and financial matters. Someone will be putting pressure on you, until you take the necessary steps. You will be feeling a little downcast, but it will help greatly once you know the essential jobs have been done. This is a really good time to be very creative, if you can just pin yourself down to dealing with the nitty gritty. Single Geminis may find the New Moon in Libra brings you a new romantic interest!

CANCER (22 June – 23 July)

Clearing out a lot of items you no longer want from your living space will certainly give you more room and it also feels good! You may be in the mood to organize a little party, in order to catch up with people you haven’t seen for a while. This is a good week for getting on better terms with family members and for inviting friends into your home.  Some of you may even be making some really big changes to your domestic arrangements, up to and including  moving house.

LEO (24 July – 23 August)

The week begins on a very sociable note and you will enjoy dressing up and going out. You may decide to head off somewhere on the spur of the moment. The New Moon is likely to bring you some new friends and you will have fun as you go exploring together. You will also be clearing away a lot of things you no longer want from your home, but also tidying up your garden, so that everything looks really fabulous. The only trouble is, you may spend rather more than you had intended this week, but then, it is only money.

VIRGO (24 August – 23 September)

Exciting things are happening in your job this week, or with a particular project and you will use your imagination and ingenuity to the utmost. It seems to win a lot of people over and it certainly makes you feel good. You need to be very well organized and this will help to dispel any feelings you have of insecurity or self doubt. You might not have the company you want at the weekend, but it is still a good time to chill out, to see a play or a movie, hear a band – or explore your own creativity, instead.

LIBRA (24 September – 23 October)

The New Moon in your sign galvanises you into action. You may receive a surprise invitation to go somewhere really interesting and this will help a lot with the personal changes you are undergoing. You have been feeling a bit out of the loop, although you are busy enough in your own way. It looks like you are being dragged out of the doldrums this week. You will be getting involved with some really creative work and perhaps also taking steps in your spiritual development.

SCORPIO (24 October – 22 November)

Your thinking changes this week and you are likely to take off to a quiet place where you can enjoy some culture, or maybe just the soothing effects of beautiful scenery. You will accomplish a huge amount and you somehow feel a lot of tension and anxiety draining away and leaving you far more relaxed. You are filled with determination and everything goes really well. At the weekend you are surrounded by people and there is a celebration and a big event.

SAGITTARIUS  (23 November – 21 December)

This is a great week for watching someone strutting their stuff, whether this means you are attending a concert, seeing a big match, or going to a cultural clambake. Whatever it is, you will get a buzz out of simply being with your friends!  This week is really busy for you and as a result, you will feel quite exhausted. Never mind, you have help and there is someone quietly efficient on the spot to assist with all you need to do. The people you love are really busy too, so everyone has to row in and make it work.

CAPRICORN (22 December – 20 January)

There are a few changes in your life this week and many of you will take on a new job, or make some different arrangements in the one you have. You are really impressing people now. For all that, you are entering on a two and a half year period during which you will be examining your own motives and plans for the future. You may even decide to have some counselling to help you see your way ahead. It is certainly a great week to talk to friends and clear your head. Take a little trip to somewhere quiet, maybe a spa or a retreat.

AQUARIUS (21 January – 19 February)

This is a great week to start a new project in communications or education, but also to take a trip, maybe to stay with someone. You will be the centre of attention and people will find your unusual outlook on life very refreshing. This is a good time to consult an expert, although you may be surprised by what is revealed.  There is some money coming for you (which you are expecting) but you may find you have quite a few expenses, as well.

PISCES (20 February – 20 March)

People are giving you a lot of practical support this week, some of it financial. Talk to someone who can help you to find a balance, or a just conclusion to matters weighing on your mind.  You want your voice to be heard and it will be. As the week goes on, people are extremely kind and accommodating and you realise how many friends you have. Take a trip at the end of the week, to a place that has a soothing effect on you and will help you to relax.

 

ENDS

YOUR WEEK AHEAD

eclipse-partial-4-14-2014-fred-espenak-sq

Monday 28th September – Sunday 4th October 2015

By now you will have seen the Supermoon, an amazing red Blood Moon, and hopefully, also, the accompanying Total Lunar Eclipse. This Full Moon is in Aries, opposite the Sun in Libra, giving a need for balance between war and peace, egotism and love, male energy and female energy, all of which will need to be resolved. Whether this drama in the skies also includes the end of days remains to be seen. Some prophets are promising impending doom, but NASA says there are currently no asteroids or comets on a collision course with Earth.

However, astrologically speaking, the Full Moon always brings a tension and a change, plus a lunar eclipse does bring important events for you.

ARIES ( 21 March – 20 April)

You are trying to be very orderly and organized now, getting on with essential jobs, even when you find this exhausting. There is a great deal to do and you may find you get rather confused as you clear away the detritus. Although in the main, you are in robust health, something seems to be sapping your strength now, perhaps another person, or an inner anxiety you are keeping to yourself. You will feel more relaxed after the Full Moon, even if there are some substantial changes in a relationship.

TAURUS (21 April – 21 May)

You are by nature quite an introvert, but you will be taking charge this week, as you deal with financial problems and unexpected events. You are usually pretty grounded and reliable, so that people do turn to you when things become difficult. You are particularly concerned with your home and family. Someone you love gives you rather a surprise and you may have to change your views, which you do not always find easy.

GEMINI (22 May – 21 June)

You are determined to keep things on an even keel, even if you sometimes think you are being knocked off balance. You can do this by showing your ability to take charge and display your talents. You may be facing a change in the friends that surround you, whether you are moving house, changing jobs, or perhaps someone you care for is leaving your circle. Other people continue to put you under pressure. It is time to show everyone that you know what you want and that you cannot be pushed around, even if retrograde Mercury does continue to muddle communications.

CANCER (22 June – 23 July)

The Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse at the beginning of the week unsettle you somewhat, but you will feel calmer as the week goes on. Changes are taking place in your home and work balance, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Make sure you communicate well with family members and that everyone is on the same page. Someone may be too tired to listen, or they may have their head in the clouds. Your surroundings are changing now, whether at home, or at work.

LEO (24 July – 23 August)

You are enjoying spending time with friends or family members and you can have some really good heart to heart talks. Just make sure you totally understand each other, while Mercury is still retrograde. You are going back into the past, whether in your thoughts, your reading, or the outings you are undertaking. You are also clearing away a lot of clutter and this could mean figuring out your budget and tidying your papers, as well as attending to some ongoing health issues. You are worrying about a child now.

VIRGO (24 August – 23 September)

You are working at making everything shipshape, as untidiness and mess make you quite irritable. This will mean taking charge, perhaps including the domain of someone else, maybe your partner, or a child. Your brain still feels a little fuzzy, thanks to retrograde Mercury and you may annoy yourself by forgetting things, or making mistakes. You hate that, especially as other people seem very confused as well. You may be settling a financial or property matter now, but it is a relief to have it sorted out.

LIBRA (24 September – 23 October)

You are the mover and shaker in your social circle just now, organizing events and calling friends to make arrangements. You may have to rally people shortly to help you with a problem in your immediate vicinity. Maybe you want some furniture moved, support with a charity project, or some muscle to help with paving the backyard. You may also need someone to help you decipher a document, or to make a judgement call on something. Even if you are feeling very strong – and you are – your thinking is not very clear, thanks to retrograde Mercury.

SCORPIO (24 October – 22 November)

You are forever giving yourself rules, regulations and stipulations, most of which are quite unnecessary. Take the chance to rest, or to pamper yourself, when it arises. Unexpected events will jolt you into action soon enough: just make sure you are not too stubborn in your outlook to consider new ways to look at life. Things in your working life are changing now as a project – or even a career – comes to an end and a colleague moves on. Some are changing location this week.

SAGITTARIUS  (23 November – 21 December)

Although your life is opening up nicely and you can see all kinds of opportunities ahead, you may be inclined to mess this about by trying to deal with far too much detail. You do not have to be perfect! You are busy and organized, as you draw on past experience, but it is all very tiring. You need more rest. This is an important week for someone you love. You may be saying goodbye now, as they move on to bigger and better things.

CAPRICORN (22 December – 20 January)

You are spreading your wings and doing what you want to do, but you may be expending more energy than you had intended. However, spending time at someone else’s abode will give you a nice rest. You don’t really want to be around your usual gang at the moment, so it is a good week to take yourself off somewhere, or even to simply chill out in private. You will be doing some impulse spending, but it will make you feel good.

AQUARIUS (21 January – 19 February)

You are experiencing challenges these days which require you to be brave and determined, but you certainly have plenty of support from other people, if you want it. In fact, everyone loves you at the moment, so it is a good time to go for a new job, ask for a raise, or ask a favour of someone. You are completing a project in communications and this will bring you plenty of attention. Just make sure you have dotted all the i’s and crossed all the t’s – and not the other way round.

PISCES (20 February – 20 March)

For some reason you feel a little guilty this week, as if there is more you could be doing. People around you are travelling to exciting places and doing well in their lives, yet you feel a little niggle of discontent, even although you are happy for them.  It looks as though you will be taking on a new challenge soon. Someone is giving you financial and property advice, but this may not be completely correct, so make sure you do your own research and make your own decisions.

YOUR WEEK AHEAD

SCCZEN_A_040415NZHNRECLIPSE9a_480x270

Monday 21st – Sunday 27th September 2015

On Wednesday, the Sun enters Libra, marking the Autumn Equinox, the time when day and night are of equal length, a time of balance and harmony, of harvest and plenty.

In the southern hemisphere it is, of course, the Spring Equinox.

On Friday, Mars leaves the orderly Earth sign of Virgo and moves into the   romantic, peace-loving Air sign of Libra. Also on Friday, Pluto ceases his Retrograde motion and begins to go Direct once more. Major moves that were set aside for months begin to loom large again and changes begin to take place.

On Sunday night, (actually, early Monday morning next week on the 28th) there is a Full Moon, a Supermoon, extra close to the Earth.  It is  in Aries, a so-called Blood Moon, the red colour caused by an effect of the sun’s rays shining through the earth’s atmosphere. There is also a Total Lunar Eclipse, visible from Ireland, at its peak at 3.47am.

All kinds of people are expecting the Apocalypse, or the Rapture, or possibly the end of life as we know it, with this Blood Moon and Lunar Eclipse. If it starts raining locusts or frogs where you live, let me know.

ARIES ( 21 March – 20 April)

Make the most of the fun, friendship and romance you have been enjoying while Mars has been in Leo, because on Friday, your ruling planet moves into Virgo and after that, you can expect several weeks of hard work, of going out of your way to help other people and of examining any health issues that may arise, whether for yourself, or for someone else. You will be coming down to earth with a bump this week, attending to your responsibilities and taking charge when necessary. The Full Moon in your sign at the end of the week may  indicate someone going out of your life now.

TAURUS (21 April – 21 May)

You have been receiving a lot of attention lately and this week is no different.  You enjoy the gatherings you attend, even if you can’t quite express what you are feeling. You are busy doing things for other people, even although you are feeling very tired. Someone is on hand to help you with a health problem, if that is what you want. The Full Moon influences your way of thinking and you find you can let go of a lot of your long-held ideas and theories, not easy for stubborn Taurus. If you have been considering a change of scene, you can go ahead now.

GEMINI (22 May – 21 June)

This is a great time to get in touch with old friends, or even to rekindle a past romance. (This could happen at a gathering you will be attending.) You are doing a great deal of essential tidying, chucking out and cleaning at home and this is really quite exhausting. A few old memories are unearthed along the way! A delay in your financial situation is sorted now, whether this means spending a large sum, or receiving one! It will work well for you, either way! The Full Moon brings a party, or an important meeting, perhaps to say goodbye to someone.

CANCER (22 June – 23 July)

Full Moon are always important for you and with the Lunar Eclipse as well, this one is even more so. It is all happening on your Solar Midheaven and therefore will affect your career and your future. Perhaps a project draws to a close, your boss resigns, or a colleague moves on. Changes which have been hanging fire for ages now begin to move forward. The information you receive may not be completely accurate, so check it out carefully before you react. You will be doing some research this week, but you will get full credit for it.

LEO (24 July – 23 August)

Plan to do something creative, or spiritually motivated, at the Equinox – you are in just the right mood. Get out into the countryside, or do some spade work in your garden. If you have been planning to get on with a project or two, but have not felt motivated, that will all change at the weekend. There could be a breakthrough  regarding your health as well, as you resolve to look after yourself much better and your mood changes to one of optimism. The Full Moon brings a plan for a trip – or maybe you are setting off now!

VIRGO (24 August – 23 September)

As Mars enters your sign, you feel a great burst of renewed energy and you turn to the things you know you must do and begin to take charge once more. Other people are not much help these days, or are just not available, but you already know that. Some Virgos are given extra responsibility at work, maybe even a promotion. If you have been waiting for someone you love to make a particular move, this can go ahead now and it is a great relief. The Full Moon brings an important stage in a group project; someone may opt out now.

LIBRA (24 September – 23 October)

As the Sun enters your sign, you begin to feel in control of things once more and to receive far more attention from other people. Just make sure that the information you are offering to others is actually reaching them. As Pluto turns Direct, a stalled domestic situation begins to move forward at last. Again, make sure you know exactly what is going on and make sure you read any documents thoroughly, as there could be confusion, or even deliberate subterfuge. The Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse is likely to move a relationship on to a new stage.

SCORPIO (24 October – 22 November)

As your ruler, Pluto, begins to move forward once more, you feel a welcome sense of freedom. You can make new plans now and consider some changes to your environment. (A health issue, or even chronic exhaustion, may help you to make up your mind.) You begin to concentrate on group activities, even if this means you are simply relaxing with friends! Do not feel you have to organize things, however. There is a possibility you will be micro-managing everything and worrying a lot. A career issue comes to a head with the Full Moon.

SAGITTARIUS  (23 November – 21 December)

As usual, you are trying to do too much and as a result, feeling very tired. Your home situation is draining you. If you have been contemplating a change at work, or if changes are pending, this can take place now, as Pluto moves Direct. You may even be receiving a sum of money! You are extremely busy, charging about in all directions, because like it or not, you are in control here. The Equinox brings a month of group activities and the Full Moon and Eclipse may see someone you care about moving out of your life.

CAPRICORN (22 December – 20 January)

You have been keeping a low profile lately, but the Equinox brings you a great deal of attention, perhaps because of some creative work you have been doing, or maybe because you have been doing charity work, or looking after someone. The Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse signal changes in your domestic situation. There is a greater sense of liberty now and many of you set off on a journey, while others may even be moving house. There is plenty of work to be done first, however!

AQUARIUS (21 January – 19 February)

The Equinox may signal the beginning of a course of study, or perhaps a trip in good company.  People around you calm down, become less concerned with their own lives and are far more co-operative. You need to take action in your financial affairs and pay close attention to all transactions, as you may spend more money than you intended now. Double check everything.  A burden is lifted from your shoulders and you feel you can go ahead with personal plans. The Full Moon and Eclipse bring changes to your surroundings.

PISCES (20 February – 20 March)

This week there is a parting with friends. Make sure you say everything you want to say, as your messages may find some difficulty in reaching their target. You have been focusing a lot on the requirements of other people over the past month or so, but with the Equinox, you find you can let this go a little. Instead, you will be focusing on your finances and seeking some expert advice. The Full Moon and Eclipse bring a big change for you in your career and your plans for the future. You may find that certain people become very intent on pushing a personal agenda, so hold fast to your own ideas.

YOUR WEEK AHEAD

old-guy-dancing

Monday 14th – Sunday 20th September 2015

After the New Moon in Virgo plus the partial solar eclipse yesterday, you will find you are now dealing with issues which have been building up for some time, but which are far better sorted out, rather than being hidden away.

Saturn, after having slipped back into Scorpio for twelve weeks, now returns to Sagittarius once more, opening up our lives to a far greater extent.

And Mercury is stationary in Libra, until he turns retrograde on Thursday., so expect all kind of problems in communications!

ARIES ( 21 March – 20 April)

You will certainly be making your presence felt this week, as you attract every eye. This will have a very beneficial effect upon you, as you realise you can actually deliver what you were promising. Just make sure you listen to other people too and consider their views before charging ahead and doing things your own way, out of sheer pride, or even nerves.  If you pass this test, there could be a lot more on offer for you in the months to come. It will be more work, more fun – or hopefully, both!

TAURUS (21 April – 21 May)

This is a good time for showing everyone how amazing you are, whether in your personal appearance, your interior design skills, or your immaculate taste in other areas. Enjoy yourself in a homely setting away from your usual gang. A bit of R and R is just what you need! Work slows to a halt, but make sure this is not because the lines of communication have been cut. Worries about your partner fade away now, but they will be replaced by some anxieties about your financial situation.

GEMINI (22 May – 21 June)

With your ruler Mercury retrograde, you will experience delays, frustration and general difficulty in travelling, or in sending and receiving messages. Still, this is an excellent time for delving into the past and you will find this most enjoyable. You will even uncover some surprising information. Problems you have had for ages in your career begin to dissolve now and your health improves, too, although you are still moving more slowly than your usual sprint. Someone close to you has a few money worries, which surface now.

CANCER (22 June – 23 July)

The waxing moon provides you with an excellent opportunity to continue with  ideas, matters and schemes begun with the New Moon. The Solar Eclipse has brought things to the surface and forced you to look at them, so that you can heal and improve these situations. A family member may have difficulty with mobility or with communicating, but this will pass in a couple of weeks. You find that work becomes extra taxing towards the weekend, but this is because you have additional responsibility, or else someone else has problems and these are adding to your own burdens.

LEO (24 July – 23 August)

You have a lot to do at the moment and you are very busy. It does not help that things will not go according to plan, since you will have to adjust accordingly. You will have difficulties with transport, as a past problem returns, but it can be fixed. Your attempts to be accommodating seem merely to result in your increased isolation. You will find you are expressing thoughts you have been holding in for a long time, but in the long run, this will prove beneficial.

VIRGO (24 August – 23 September)

As your ruler, Mercury slows and then turns retrograde, you find this affects your work and you simply cannot get on with what you were planning. If you cannot continue with a project, then maybe you should take this chance to relax. A few days doing as little as possible in a favourite place would do you the world of good. However, as Saturn moves into Sagittarius, you find you feel lonely, harassed and certainly very tired. Don’t take on so much and make sure you get plenty of rest.

LIBRA (24 September – 23 October)

With Mercury stationary and then retrograde in your sign, this is probably not a good time to be taking any trips, as you are likely to encounter delays and problems. If you must travel, allow plenty of time and double check everything. Make sure you know exactly where you are going. Other people  will be springing surprises this week, but this is just as likely to be fabulous as unfortunate. Here’s hoping it is the former! If you have difficulty in expressing yourself, this issue will be addressed this week.

SCORPIO (24 October – 22 November)

You should find a great burden is lifted from your shoulders this week, as Saturn leaves Scorpio and moves on into Sagittarius. Depression and anxiety lift, loneliness is assuaged, responsibilities diminish and you feel you can tackle anything. However, Mercury retrograde will have you dwelling on the past rather too much. Don’t start imagining difficulties that do not exist. You do not personally have to ensure that everyone gets along with everyone else. Let them sort it out for themselves.

SAGITTARIUS  (23 November – 21 December)

Saturn moved into your sign last Christmas and stayed there until late May, when he popped back into Scorpio for a while, but now he’s here to stay – at least until Christmas 2017. This means you’ll have to look hard at what is bothering you and take pains to set it to rights. You will feel uncharacteristically pessimistic, extremely tired and even unwell. You may worry about your job situation, or your finances. Usually you can look on the bright side, but this time Saturn will be pushing you to make some really good changes. No time like the present to get started!

CAPRICORN (22 December – 20 January)

As your ruler, Saturn, switches signs, you will need to look carefully at your hidden anxieties and think about how you can fix them. Maybe counselling would help you, or some form of self help or healing. This week you seem inclined to throw money at what ails you and this can even help, at least temporarily. However you are also likely to be exaggerating apparent difficulties in your mind, until they seem larger than life. Exploring your creative potential would be extremely helpful to you.

AQUARIUS (21 January – 19 February)

This is a week during which it will be very good for you to express yourself clearly and well, in the right quarter. You might need to hark back to earlier experience, or to dig into things half forgotten. However, various people – including someone in authority – are ready and willing to be on your side and to take action. Do not be surprised if there is a delay in receiving a response, however, but if you yourself have difficulty in being heard, make sure you push through the barriers until you reach your goal.

PISCES (20 February – 20 March)

With Saturn hovering on your solar midheaven, you need to take a good long look at where you are headed and decide what you want to do. There are challenges ahead for you, but this could be exactly what you need. A great career move is on the horizon, but you will need to be brave and reach out for it. For some, it is not so much about a job, as simply a decision regarding how you want your life to proceed. Other people are not particularly helpful now, so this is totally your own decision.

 

Image: Saturn, aka Old Father Time, will be busting a few moves in the Mutable Fire sign of Sagittarius, between now and Christmas 2017.

Your Week Ahead

 

YOUR WEEK AHEAD

Monday 31st August – Sunday 6th September 2015

Beautiful Venus, currently the Morning Star, has at last decided to stop sulking and will be moving Direct again on Sunday. This means that she will be stationary for much of the week and therefore there will be great emphasis on your relationships, on co-operation in various enterprises, on money, and on your leisure pursuits. You will find you are forced to look at these things very closely and perhaps to come to certain realisations you have been trying to avoid.

The Moon is now Waning, which means that this is a winding-down period after concerted efforts.  It is not the best of times to begin any important projects.

ARIES ( 21 March – 20 April)

Take care of business matters and don’t be afraid to assert yourself. (As if!) You can achieve much this week, which will not only improve a particular situation, but also set your mind at ease. You are moving towards a considerable change and although it is slow in coming, it will affect your future, particularly with regard to your financial state and your independence. You may feel you want greater freedom, but first you need to look into lots of boring details. You should attend to your health now. A romance gets back on track.

TAURUS (21 April – 21 May)

You will be be sticking close to home this week, whether you want to or not. You are still playing host to many people, particularly to young folk or children. (Maybe you are doing some babysitting!) It is a good time to invite people in for a party, or just to gather round your table and this could well help to heal a breach between certain people who have not been getting along well of late. You are planning a trip and soon you should be able to sort out your problems and head away.

GEMINI (22 May – 21 June)

You are in a calm and pleasant mood, even although there is quite a change in your circumstances this week. You should be able to deal with this transition without too much bother. There is an intensity to your relationships now, with some long heart-to-heart chats and secrets shared. This should help you to see your way forward more clearly and to tidy up any doubts you may have had about which path to take. You will  be having some fun with friends and there could be quite a new element to your carousing.  Try not to fritter your money away.

CANCER (22 June – 23 July)

You will be concentrating on relationships this week, especially those within the workplace. Friendly co-operation is required, but in some cases this may not be easy. Having said that, a relationship that has been difficult can now be improved greatly. You will, in fact, be saying goodbye to someone. There is fun to be had with young people and children, which you will really enjoy.  After the intensity of the Full Moon period, it is good to wind down a bit and to relax.

LEO (24 July – 23 August)

With Venus stationary in your sign this week, it is a good time to examine your relationships in detail. You may feel a little lonesome, even if you are with other people, but by the weekend you will be perking up and enjoying a better social life. This is a good time to examine your finances and your property concerns and to make any adjustments required. You will be doing a lot of clearing out and recycling, as you rid yourself of unwanted items and you will be thinking out a strategy for your future, as well.

VIRGO (24 August – 23 September)

You will be enjoying your work very much this week. It will give you pleasure and you will be able to see some tangible results. Some Virgos are actually doing very few of their usual tasks now and are on holiday somewhere very exciting, where you can really strut your stuff! You are in the mood for plenty of travelling, although, as usual, you will probably give yourself a challenge, or some jobs to do, instead of relaxing properly.  You will certainly not be idle. You will be covering plenty of ground and learning a lot, as well.

LIBRA (24 September – 23 October)

You are concentrating hard on certain relationships now. Maybe you are having an intense time with a particular dynamic person. Perhaps you are very involved with a club, a group, or a co-operative activity. (You are certainly in touch with a lot of people.) If out-of-the-ordinary experiences occur, you find it exciting, rather than annoying. If you have been feeling tired, you have a chance now to take a break and restore your flagging energy. You have been feeling quite nostalgic lately, but by the weekend you are ready to enjoy some new experiences.

SCORPIO (24 October – 22 November)

You may be changing your surroundings quite dramatically this week and it  will be very exciting! Concentrate on enjoying yourself now – but not so much that you turn it into hard work! You have a lot of details to attend to, but you are happy to take a leading role – and there is a bit of chaos to sort out. You will feel far more relaxed and comfortable by the weekend. You will be doing some  work on a close relationship, perhaps with your partner,  perhaps with a child. Things will seem less confusing afterwards.

SAGITTARIUS  (23 November – 21 December)

You have a very busy and exciting week ahead of you. You may decide to go on a trip and even although this will take considerable organization, it will be very worthwhile. You will get very involved in your new surroundings, although at first you may feel you cannot relax. However, by the weekend, you will have calmed down greatly. Do not feel you have to take care of every little detail. There will be plenty of outings and some very pleasant conversation.

CAPRICORN (22 December – 20 January)

You seem to be taking on rather a lot this week and trying to do everything perfectly. Some are taking a trip and you will want to do plenty of research concerning your destination and to immerse yourself deeply in the culture and your surroundings. Other Capricorns will be taking on a very demanding course of study now and you will throw yourself into this very heartily. Look carefully at your financial situation. It would be a pity if you were spending the money you have saved in a way you will later regret.

AQUARIUS (21 January – 19 February)

You will be spending a lot of time this week in contemplating an important relationship. It is hard to know whether to cling on to old grievances, or to move forward towards a more amicable state of being. It is possible to achieve a great deal of healing this week, if you so desire. There will be some friendly chats and a lot of the tension will have dissolved by the weekend. Try not to spend too much money this week – you will be tempted to try to impress someone.

PISCES (20 February – 20 March)

You are likely to be doing very little work this week. This may be because you are extremely tired, or not feeling very well and this inertia will actually do you a lot of good. People seem anxious to get in touch with you, even if you would rather hide from them! What you hear from someone may not be totally true, so do take it with a pinch of salt. People around you are extremely busy and doing all kinds of exciting things, but somehow you are not very closely involved. (This may not bother you much, however!)
