march 20 - april 19
The emphasis on your sign that has prevailed for some weeks, gradually continues to diminish. However, you couldn’t describe the pace of life as sluggish, since the atmosphere continues to prove exhilarating and engrossing, although perhaps a little calmer than of late. Uranus, the planet ruling change and the unexpected stays with you, enlivening your schedule through until 2019, which if you are counting equals another four years. Any means by which you can manage to make your mark as an individual, breaking free from limitations and ploughing a unique furrow, show that you are working with this symbolism well.

april 20 - may 20
It makes a change for your sign to be firmly in the spotlight, since you’re rather used to all the action happening elsewhere. Not that it troubles you, you have had plenty to attend to at home for instance and have appreciated the opportunity to get a few things straight. This process doesn’t have to stop yet you’ll be delighted to hear, while the passage of Venus through your financial sector could make more funds available for pet projects if you continue to apply yourself. Domestic improvements are high on the list of tasks you aim to tackle, with the accent on aesthetics and adding value, wherever property is concerned.

may 21 - june 20
You fret over minor issues, especially if your plentiful mental energy is not fully occupied by stimulating intellectual activity. Anxiety leads to nervousness and stress, creating a situation that perpetuates itself and causing worry to escalate beyond the levels it ought to in the circumstances. Some address this in a measured manner, but for others it becomes a real problem that causes many difficulties. Anything that helps to level out this vibration and enables you to relax a little is therefore welcome news, making the presence of Venus in your region of the sky throughout this week, exactly what the doctor had in mind…

june 21 - july 22
As the cosmos shifts its focus towards Taurus, celestial trends slowly become more attuned to your sensitive and intuitive nature. The prevailing atmosphere is somehow more reassuring and harmonises with your aims and approach, helping you believe that despite the everyday obstacles you must struggle to overcome, you are on the right track after all. Buoyed up by a sense of renewed optimism, you feel ready to look at the finer points of what has so far been a cut and dried experience. Life cannot be only about achievement after all; happiness, fulfilment, contentment and serenity should get a look-in as well.
- leo : the lion - leo
july 23 - august 22
Relationships for you are never a straightforward proposition. You are certain you have special talents and abilities that place you head and shoulders above the majority. Yet you are also keen for others to recognise the contribution you're able to make and hope they will appreciate and applaud your efforts. Only people are not always pleased by folk whose skills they cannot emulate. You’d like to stay on warm and friendly terms with everyone, but it is difficult when an element of competition intervenes. Possibly, you’d be better to acknowledge that in any contest, you can’t expect the vanquished will love you to bits.

august 23 - september 22
If only the favourable trends surrounding your professional affairs could be reflected in your circumstances at home. Perhaps you need to move; somewhere smaller than suits your pocket or to a neighbourhood where costs are lower. Maybe there are repairs needing your attention, with tasks you have been avoiding looking costly and hard to live with in the meantime. Those you ask for advice on these and other issues prove evasive, unreliable and perhaps even untruthful, for instance claiming to have essential expertise when the opposite is true. You’d be wiser, keeping your own counsel if you can…

september 23 - october 22
The new moon signifies this is a week, during which to look at your relationships with new eyes. Often it seems, these matters come to your attention at about the same time of year, whether as a result of the changing seasons or something only the planets can explain. On this occasion, it brings to mind the emotional undercurrents you have felt stirring deep inside you and the issues raised around your family situation and domestic life. Here a number of far-reaching changes have been rumbling along, with these routinely opening your eyes up to a range of possibilities, you may not have acted upon entirely as yet…
scorpio - scorpio : the scorpion -
october 23 - november 21
You need to look at your priorities consciously and where you can, arrive at an independent decision. In particular, try not to be swayed by material considerations, although when you have struggled for money in the past that might not be so easy as it sounds. Of course, your finances play a necessary role and there is no point promoting hardship for the sake of it, but it is tempting to believe that wherever prosperity lies is always the best option. When you’re making up your mind about which relationships to emphasise, remember there are other criteria to judge people by, rather than simply money in the bank.
- sagittarius : the archer - sagittarius
november 22 - december 21
Saturn in your sign is involved in a challenging, but potentially crucial alignment that needs careful handling. Also implicated are Venus, the planet of love and Neptune, bringing sensitivity and idealism into the picture. Combined these two might classically represent an idealistic love match that proves too good to be true, one where the realities of the situation find it difficult to equal the elevated expectations of its initial promise. Although the effect of Saturn is traditionally unsympathetic towards the intangible essence of this combination, it can help you to keep your feet on the ground and not lose all contact with reality…

december 22 - january 19
Pluto changes direction and begins its retrograde cycle, a trajectory it maintains from now through until late September. As this distant and icy body starts to backtrack over ground it covered during the past seven months, you’ll find that certain issues need to be revisited and perhaps looked at from a different angle. This is a natural and normal process, since sometimes the transformations with which Pluto is associated come too quickly for you to assimilate them. Hence the chance to review your course, to reconsider your options and then adjust your direction heading forward in the light of what you discover.
- aquarius : the water-bearer - aquarius
january 20 - february 18
Neptune sees you giving serious thought to your material affairs. This is a subject that often languishes low down on your list of priorities, since you are confident you have better things to spend your time and energy on, rather than worrying over what you’d consider to be a less than edifying subject. You are extremely idealistic, in your belief that if you look out for others and behave appropriately, the universe will provide for you as one part of some great cosmic plea bargain. In spite of your apparent naivety this has often proven to be true, although you have seen at least one huge upset that rattled you to the core.

february 19 - march 19
You are in the early stages of a period of harvest. This marks the culmination of a major phase for you, the like of which you’ll only encounter a few times in your life. Once you acknowledge the enormity of these developments, when viewed from a longer term perspective and in terms of your spiritual development, it becomes obvious that you must make the most of these trends, since opportunities like this one lie decades apart. At the same time though, your boundaries are permeable and your sensitivity is increased. You may need the help of a trusted confidant, to shield you from certain harsher influences.
