march 20 - april 19
It is hard to escape from the planet Uranus as it travels through your sign, sometimes comparatively swiftly and at others, revisiting ground it has covered before. But why would you want to anyway? This planet heralds an increase in your personal freedom and the chance to express your individuality more readily than before, even if the challenge to existing structures feels quite unsettling sometimes. While currently you are in a quieter phase, this state of flux lasts for several years. So, have faith in a positive outcome and basically, enjoy the journey. Don’t fixate on a stability, that would only be illusory at best…

april 20 - may 20
With three planets in your opposite sign this week, your partnership affairs are emphasised. If you are single and looking or in the early stages of a new liaison, you’ll find the progress of your relationship is favoured by the cosmos, especially if your domestic situation is significantly altered by your association. Established connections, like a marriage or similar prove equally rewarding, with just the proper balance of affection and commitment. Close friends and colleagues appear more amenable, while if you need to seek professional guidance on any matter, expect an enjoyable interchange and some excellent advice…

may 21 - june 20
Mars and Pluto emphasise those resources you hold in common with others. This covers a whole range of possibilities from physical intimacy and the sharing of your space, through to the financial arrangements within a marriage or linked with credit, inheritance, taxes and welfare that necessitate the involvement of an outside agency. In principle this is not new, since the say others have over your income and spending has been a feature for years. But Mars is a recent arrival and while it’ll encourage you to address any sources of concern, it also highlights the need for moderation and to accept where your influence stops…
cancer - cancer : the crab -
june 21 - july 22
The conjunction between a ponderous Pluto and a relatively nimble Mars perfects on November 10. Until then, your closest relationships are simultaneously blessed with a greater than usual dose of passion, but troubled by an element of friction and stress. The Sun and Venus conjoined exactly not so long ago in an area of your horoscope ruling romance, so you’ll notice when it comes to affairs of the heart, the positive side of this influence predominates. However, with those in authority you should stay more circumspect. Try not to undermine a good position, by flying off the handle or acting as if you can’t hold your tongue…

july 23 - august 22
Jupiter turns retrograde during December and then for five months, it backtracks across a part of the sky it first occupied today. This allows you to review and in some cases reconsider, the developments of the past few months along with where you feel, Jupiter’s expansive influence is proving all you’d hoped. It also puts the spotlight on activities that have failed to fulfil their promise and where you have been disappointed by the results. When it comes to your domestic situation, you couldn’t really wish for more. But your working life isn’t ideal, which means a detrimental impact on your confidence and joie de vivre…
virgo - virgo : the maiden -
august 23 - september 22
Those regions of the sky that are emphasised this week, stress the importance of communicating your feelings and explaining your motivations, even if you believe on the one hand that nobody is interested and at the opposite extreme, that you don’t have to justify yourself to anyone. A favourable planetary alignment emphasises your communication skills and suggests that if you are prepared to make the most of this opportunity, then you can get your message over more easily and accurately than usual. Besides, the longer you let a nebulous and confusing situation continue, the more you will guarantee lasting harm.

september 23 - october 22
Mercury is now moving forwards in your sign, but remains involved in an edgy and complicated planetary alignment until the weekend, peaking this Tuesday and Wednesday. Don’t imagine no good can come from this situation, but careful handling will be essential, especially where your nearest and dearest are concerned. If you could possibly arrange to spend the next few days away on business or working late, it would seem to be an excellent idea. Behind the scenes tensions have diminished by then, although being prudent with your timing is different, from suppressing your emotions until the whole situation explodes.
scorpio - scorpio : the scorpion -
october 23 - november 21
As the Sun, Venus and Saturn stay in your sign throughout this week, you can expect your relationships will turn out well. Closeness for you is a complex conundrum, since your feelings are powerful and often overwhelming, it makes you feel very vulnerable to reveal these during the emotional dialogue that love necessitates. Doubtless you have been hurt badly in the past, but in retrospect can appreciate how these experiences have made you stronger and the way time really, is an excellent healer as the saying goes. Relating occurs on many levels, so it isn’t only intimacy that can alter your perspective on these affairs…
- sagittarius : the archer - sagittarius
november 22 - december 21
Mars closing on Pluto places an emphasis on your material interests. These have been in the process of regeneration from the ground up over a number of years. It is apparent today that where you have resisted this process and held on to the same old ways of doing things, the wisdom of your immutability has not been all you’d reckoned. A few factors from beforehand continue to pay you dividends, but these appear to rest on increasingly shaky ground. It could be the world has changed and forces beyond your control have provoked this metamorphosis. Even so it isn’t a reason, for sticking your head in the sand…
capricorn - capricorn : the sea-goat -
december 22 - january 19
The combination of Mars and Pluto in your constellation is a potent and powerful mixture. It confers the energy and stamina to tackle big projects you might find daunting at other times, along with the strength and courage to ensure these are handled to the best of your capabilities. Less favourably, the combined impetus of two very assertive influences can make you domineering and belligerent, with an attitude that will accept no interference. It’s as well to remember that although your schedule is important, it isn’t the only show in town. By stirring up opposition unnecessarily, your goals become much harder to achieve…
- aquarius : the water-bearer - aquarius
january 20 - february 18
Your horoscope this week is encouraging, both for your professional interests and privately as well. The past couple of years have been eventful, with the rewards for your previous efforts finally in sight, as the consequences of any prior short cuts come back to make themselves known. Often it was a hard slog, with few lasting positives on a personal or financial level, that really stand out for you. Only now the visit of Venus to the uppermost sector of your birthchart, adds to the good fortune of Jupiter in your partnership zone. Success by itself won’t be enough for you, but a happier emotional picture might cut it.

february 19 - march 19
The start of this week sees Neptune linked with Mars in Capricorn and to the Sun in Scorpio as well. It’ll take a little concentration to get the most from this, but that shouldn’t prove too arduous and might even be quite fun, once you’re immersed in the swing of things. Your social life is especially favoured and you get the best from it, by dealing with folk from different walks of life to you. They may hail from a distant and faraway location, a contrasting religious and cultural background, or maybe another age group. They may teach you something quite unintentionally, that helps you to address lurking issues from your past…
