The passage of Uranus through your sign over the past five years has regularly amazed you, sometimes upset you and has no doubt been a limitless source of revelation and surprise. Overall, you’d say that you have enjoyed the journey, although there have been a few occasions where you’ve wished that you could put the brakes on and savour a few moments, during which to catch your breath. This week starts off on a gentler, more pleasant and reassuring note, as looking back you’re coming to realise how many of these developments were actually for the best. It seems they have permitted you, a greater freedom in the end.

There are advantages to being on the periphery of current events. The scope to set your own agenda and to concentrate on personal concerns, like your domestic situation and family matters for example, without feeling that you are neglecting other issues is not to be underestimated. This is the perfect moment for any home improvement projects, to move house or to enhance your living space. Since a number of your acquaintances have proven less than stalwart allies, those you’d generally count as friends and more, are scarcer than before. So there never was a better point, to work on your own emotional reserves instead…

may 21 - june 20
Mercury continues in your sign and for the majority of this week, it is involved in a helpful and positive configuration, with Uranus on the one hand and the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter on the other. Making the best of this alignment is for the most part up to you, yet this is a pleasing period even if you are apparently overwhelmed by inertia. Motivating yourself to get involved in your community and making an effort to speak with those, who deserve your time pays dividends. Probably you will benefit in ways that are mainly intangible, but advertising is favourably indicated for any products and services you aim to sell.

june 21 - july 22
It is hard to put your finger on the exact reason, but with the Sun and Mars in your sign, the chances are that occasionally, you’ll be feeling a little cross. Ceaseless activity takes the edge off your temper, yet still leaves you irritable when you’re dying for a rest. Much of this has to do with an ongoing struggle for power and control within at least one close relationship, as this has reached an uncomfortable equilibrium, where little has been resolved and nobody is backing down. Those with children find them hard to exclude from this picture, while your stance on certain key financial issues, seems unlikely to encourage a compromise.

july 23 - august 22
The closing conjunction of Venus and Jupiter attains exactitude on Wednesday, with these two planets immediately adjacent in the western sky shortly after sunset. Thus your popularity reaches a pinnacle, your relationships are blessed and your financial good fortune is a wonder to behold, throughout this week especially and depending on how you handle these special trends. After that the energy begins to wane, only this isn’t the whole picture as more is to come. On July 25 Venus turns retrograde and comes back to meet with Jupiter again, although this event will probably be invisible amid the brilliance of the setting Sun.

august 23 - september 22
It might seem that others have all the luck. Only everyone feels this way at some point, so don’t imagine it is just you, or that you are especially downtrodden by the cosmos. Right now, all the focus is on Leo, the constellation preceding yours, but these are the closing stages of that particular saga. On August 11, Jupiter moves into your sign for the first time since 2004. All the good fortune, luck and abundance associated with its presence then heads your way for a change, with the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter happening this week, set to repeat itself in the early morning skies and your constellation during October…

september 23 - october 22
Are perfect relationships beyond you? And how will you know for sure? You shouldn’t imagine you’re the only one, who has ever experienced a pull between your domestic interests and professional ambitions, or your desire for intimacy versus another part of you that still yearns to be free. None of these factors are mutually exclusive, but it takes a careful balancing act to make them all work together. When it comes to your relationships you’ll find friendships and more casual associations, a safer arena for experimentation than any closer links. Generally, always seek to establish a middle ground that everybody can appreciate.

october 23 - november 21
Being ready to go your own way and to cut a unique furrow, stands you in excellent stead with those in authority and helps you further your aims and ambitions in any number of ways. You will need to be ready to share though and to open up certain parts of your heart that have become virtual no-go areas, prising apart the scar tissue from previously hidden hurts and risking the chance of blood flowing. Your rewards though can be considerable and comprise the basis for what lies ahead in future. Yet they rest in part on an insight into your psychology; it takes courage to look within yourself, at what drives and motivates you.

november 22 - december 21
Close relationships cannot flourish if you suppress your individuality and go against your sense of what is right. An element of compromise is essential, in any association that is to last for the duration, but there is a difference between adapting your views to fit a situation better and selling out completely in the interests of a superficial harmony. In the former instance, you become a wiser individual while in the latter, you feel weakened and undermined by the compromises you have made, leading to a loss of self-respect or a sense of anger and resentment directed at those, who you believe have forced you towards this position…

december 22 - january 19
July is an unusual month, since it contains two full moons instead of the more customary one. The second full moon is in Aquarius on the last day of the month, while the first occurs in your constellation on Thursday. Some refer to this sequence as a blue moon, but astrologers reserve that term for two consecutive full moons in the same sign. Ordinarily speaking, you will have one such event in your region of the sky each year, that connects with a similarly placed new moon six months earlier. This week marks a point of fruition and culmination then, during which to reflect on what you’ve achieved since December…

january 20 - february 18
You are fiercely independent and if you’re typical, don’t mind your own company one bit. Time alone for you is necessary therapy, because although you are concerned with humanity and eager to promote the welfare of the majority, seeing them camped out on your sofa or sucking up your bandwidth, isn’t your idea of fun. Still you rather like the idea of one special person and as Venus and Jupiter join together this week, they are certainly in the stars for you whether you are single or already attached. Yet limitations on your freedom, are especially hard to tolerate. In fact, they prompt you to explore other options, very fast.

february 19 - march 19
Although paid employment and your obligations otherwise are soaking up plenty of your time, there is still a lot of fun to be had. Ideally, you could enjoy yourself during the course of your duties: say in a job that you really loved, in the company of your colleagues and co-workers or caring for your pets and children, as a few examples. Romance in the workplace is a possibility, although this may represent a pleasant interlude, rather than a passionate affair. Travelling for business or to meet your commitments, proves satisfying and a break from dull routines, only minus the sense of dodging your responsibilities elsewhere.
