A number of factors urge a different slant on your schedule and agenda. Dodging your responsibilities or wriggling out of your commitments can never be recommended, but looking again at which activities you prioritise and why, will help make each day run more smoothly and promote a feeling of being back in control. You should review your current timetable from two separate but related angles. Although the majority of what you spend your time on nowadays, had a purpose when you took it aboard, how much does this still apply today? When did you last look over your to-do list with the idea of a pruning exercise?

april 20 - may 20
Life lately has been lots of fun. Clearly this is wonderful news and to be honest it makes a change, when what feels like recreation can actually teach you a substantial amount as well. It is possible to learn every bit as much while you’re enjoying yourself as you can through concerted study or even a talking therapy, although it takes a little application afterwards to appreciate its relevance and significance. Your eyes have been opened to some of the things that you enjoy or more precisely, you’ve had a glimpse of how life used to be. This reminds you of what you liked before the world turned in to such a deadly serious place…

A solar eclipse on September 1, throws the celestial spotlight on to your family affairs and domestic situation. Circumstances have been happier lately: you might have moved over the past year or turned a corner where you’re living currently. You could have redecorated or invested time and money in other home improvements; while perhaps your family itself has grown with the arrival of a baby, a companion animal or a relative coming to live with you. Similar trends continue for roughly the next six months, as you bring your creativity to bear. How best to fund several of your ideas, is probably your main concern…

june 21 - july 22
Life has been rather hectic and the pressure is starting to tell. Not that it isn’t fun to be busy and on the go; while there is plenty to do closer to home with your friends, neighbours and others from within your locality, perhaps with your immediate relatives too. But there are only so many hours in the day and your stamina is finite, even if for the most part you are having a great time. Several persistent but low-key health issues have the potential to escalate, if you don’t give them the attention they deserve. In the interest of catching up with your own needs, you could cut back just a little on your community activities…

Jupiter exits your financial sector and leaves you with some food for thought. To earn a living is a necessary evil for the majority perhaps, but there is a big difference between those who are out to get by and to afford a few luxuries, versus others whose material aspirations are in a far more ambitious league. The solar eclipse that starts September sees you called to re-evaluate whatever matters most to you, beyond your palatial residence and the glossy car you drive. As someone who thrives on the adoration of those around them, are you sure you don’t pursue certain goals, just so you can impress the neighbours?

august 23 - september 22
The departure of Jupiter from your sign and the solar eclipse that highlights it a few days beforehand, make this an important juncture. That may not be obvious to the casual observer or even at all to those on the outside, but it’s the beginning of a process and the end of an older cycle simultaneously, taking place in the understated tones that you prefer. This eclipse calls into question your customary methods of dealing with the world. For the first half of September it pays to be scrupulously aware of what you say and when. Thereafter, you have a little more freedom, so long as you’re always cautious and considerate.

september 23 - october 22
September marks the moment you’ve anticipated for so long. Jupiter moves from Virgo and into your sign, a visit that you last enjoyed eleven years ago. Up until this point you have been like a detached observer, watching other folk going about their affairs from a perspective nobody else seems to share. Perhaps you have felt becalmed and stranded in the doldrums, with circumstances beyond your choosing, conspiring to put your life on hold. Jupiter’s arrival on September 9, signals an end to this inertia. A new cycle of growth and progress is due to begin, as success ties in with your willingness to seize the moment.

october 23 - november 21
Mars and Saturn in your money zone steadily separate. Some of the urgency surrounding your financial affairs dissipates, although that doesn’t mean the pressure is off completely. Rather you should take recent events as a word of warning from the cosmos and as a piece of advice you ought to bear in mind, rather than a period of trial you should be glad didn’t last for very long. Your finances are constrained in the most part and given these circumstances, the need for action is palpable. A few find themselves in the enviable position of needing to ensure a sizeable sum, will provide for your future like it’s supposed to do.

november 22 - december 21
By the closing days of September, Mars has left your sign. In the meantime, it continues to make its presence felt and in combination with Saturn, serves to bolster and reinforce your energy levels and to provide you with more oomph and staying power. However, you’re so busy and everything is taking such a lot longer than you had expected, you might not notice how much more you’ve had to deal with and that you still have on your plate. Instead, you feel worn out and ready for a vacation. Rather than trying to handle this by yourself, the support of your friends or a trusted professional advisor, will never go amiss…

december 22 - january 19
The arrival of Mars in your sign on September 27 is an enormous relief, since at last there is an outlet for the anger you’ve been keeping bottled up inside and have felt, totally powerless to address. Even so, those who most deserve it, may not feel the full force of your fury even now. Also, on a different level and in one way or another, you finally have something to be proud about and that you can hold up to scrutiny as a definite result. Most likely, you have worked towards this for quite some time, often without support or vindication. By the end of this month, you are in a better position to discuss these frustrations openly…

The solar eclipse on September 1 is best seen from central Africa, with the remote southern highlands of Tanzania expected to get the best view. Most of Africa and parts of the Arabian Peninsula witness a partial eclipse, while a bright ring of the Sun stays visible around a dark centre on the centre line. You won’t be surprised this suggests an emphasis on your position among your contemporaries, with the focus stretching from those closest to you, to society in general. Your patterns of relating are up for review and a hard-core individuality is not your best choice. Remember in the end, actions speak louder than words…

february 19 - march 19
A solar eclipse in your opposite sign places the focus on your one-to-one relationships. Uppermost under this heading come your existing partnerships, a number of which need a dispassionate review, even if this condemns them to the past. On probability, you will not witness these celestial phenomena from where you’re living, but the effect of such a momentous event echoes right around the globe. It is a subtle contradiction that while ever closer involvement with a few trusted individuals seems the way to go, once your own self-expression is at a disadvantage, there is little option open to you, other than being yourself.
