Significant developments lie up ahead. Pluto resumes forward motion at the top of your chart, suggesting the first inkling of certain changes you’ve initiated in your career and professional affairs. The planets align, to form a more constructive and helpful configuration than you’ve witnessed in a while, as the Sun enters your relationship zone just prior to the new moon. But all this occurs next week, making you feel you’re treading water in the interim. Still you can use this situation to your advantage, by reviewing your relationships and seeing where those you’re dissatisfied with currently, have fallen so short of the mark.

april 20 - may 20
The Sun and Venus pave the way for an enjoyable week, as a number of the tensions that have existed of late, temporarily subside. There remains a lot for you to do, both on the job and away from it, but you are developing a more objective slant that prevents your current circumstances from getting out of hand. Instrumental in this process are a range of recreational activities you pursue regularly, some of which have a creative foundation while others are more physical. Sport, your hobbies, pets and even spending time with your children, help offer you some distance and a better angle on your chores and obligations.

Everyone will tell you that with Mars in your partnership sector, you need to watch out for arguments, especially with your nearest and dearest. You can avoid these by keeping busy when you are together, although your present situation is a little different from the norm. Venus and the Sun put the spotlight on your domestic affairs, ensuring the atmosphere at home and within your family, remains relatively peaceful throughout. More difficulties arise when it comes to dealing with the outside world. Maybe due to your fragile self-confidence, it is knowing when in an unfamiliar situation, you are right to assert yourself.

june 21 - july 22
Mars highlights an area of your horoscope connected with your health. This planet is a stimulating and energising force that’ll boost your vitality, resilience and strength right through until the closing stages of October. But unfortunately it needs to since your schedule is hectic, while others expect you to prioritise their interests. The potential for minor accidents and their fallout such as cuts, bruises, scalds and grazes is greater than normal, especially when you are hurrying or feeling stressed. Rather than let the universe bring health issues to the fore, it is better you anticipate these trends and pay attention to them yourself.

july 23 - august 22
Jupiter continues in your sign and propels you to the forefront. A degree of circumspection proves an asset, since your exuberance knows no bounds and you might unintentionally tread on the toes, of more sensitive souls. But you are delighted to be noticed and to discover yourself back in the limelight, after a period when recognition appeared elusive, so don’t forget your manners or to acknowledge those who stood beside you, during these difficult times. Though a part of you fears that some of what happened is too damaging ever to address, it is never too late for fresh inroads and a genuine spirit of reconciliation.

august 23 - september 22
Venus continues in your constellation until September 29. Combined with Neptune and Chiron in your partnership zone, this can be a productive interlude, during which you are able to resolve an array of hurts from the past. Chiron is a minor planet only spotted in 1977, that is named after a famous centaur from classical mythology, who was skilled in the art of warfare and was also a gifted healer too. That unusual combination is what makes the effects of this planetoid unique. Where there has been upset, a troubled relationship can be strengthened. Where there was only unhappiness, a better future is in sight.

september 23 - october 22
The tense relationship that existed between Mercury in your sign and Pluto in Capricorn, eases at the start of this week. The changes you’ve experienced in your domestic circumstances over more than a half-dozen years now, haven’t only affected the bricks and mortar of the structure you inhabit. You may have moved house, or experienced significant alterations in your surroundings, but these have also extended to the dynamic within your family. Those challenges fluctuate, so after a period that was noted for a rather unpleasant intensity, it is only the unpredictability of key individuals you now need to tackle.

october 23 - november 21
When it comes to some of the obstacles you’ve faced, maybe you need to look inside yourself and figure out what really counts? Otherwise you could expend a lot of unnecessary energy, chasing objectives with no real relevance and dreams that don’t mean much anymore. Also, it is useful to understand how in certain circumstances, you can undermine your best interests in a way that nobody understands, least of all you. Such scenarios are emotionally driven, but as you struggle to suppress them, their import gets garbled in the process. Stand up for what you want, but endeavour to know what this is in the first place.

november 22 - december 21
Mars arrived in your sign a few days ago and doesn’t depart until the last week of October. This is a good period for getting a few items ticked off your to-do list, although it would be helpful to prioritise which of these are really necessary or even appropriate nowadays. Minor victories and small improvements in the short term are the best you can hope for, if you stick to a plan of action that saw its greatest chances of succeeding years ago. It is not like your current predicament wasn’t signposted, either. Optimism, along with faith in a favourable outcome are huge positives. Laziness and negligence, won’t promise so much…

december 22 - january 19
It is hard making definite plans, since your home life seems so up in the air. This may be due to where you’re living, with a move ahead or perhaps the prospect of extensive renovations and remodelling. Or it could come down to the internal dynamics within your family, as certain individuals prove capricious and your freedom to express yourself, becomes a significant factor too. Many of these alterations appear to have an external cause, but they reflect changes inside yourself. Since these are not complete yet it is hard to see beyond the shorter term. When looking further ahead, try to be happy with a general theme.

january 20 - february 18
It is not so much like you’re standing at a crossroads. Rather your present situation resembles catching sight of a T-junction, coming in to view and only just along the road. Once you reach it you’ll have two options, since going back the way you’ve come, isn’t a prospect that appeals. You can continue in the same vein and keep building upon your progress, out of necessity altering your trajectory slightly to reflect the attainment of your previous goals. Or you can accept a different challenge and turn your back on this phase, knowing you’ve achieved what you set out to accomplish and have the luxury of a choice.

february 19 - march 19
You’re imaginative and spend plenty of time, speculating on the awesomeness of the universe and the intricacies of the human condition. Although your perspective is debatably an almost mystical one at times, the solitude necessary for contemplation is not something that attracts you. You prefer company and since your expectations are high, you’ll have a few carefully chosen companions who feature as special people on your list. You are sentimental and affectionate towards those you care about, so while occasionally you criticise, when it comes to their welfare your boundaries are far more all-encompassing.
