march 20 - april 19
The current focus on your one-to-one relationships makes it hard for you to take independent decisions and to initiate the changes you would prefer to see. It is possible that some of what you’ve decided is going to need thinking through again, with the chance to further certain of these objectives afresh, later on during the year. Playing the waiting game has never been your strongest suit, while impatiently attempting to force the issue, is likely to precipitate all the wrong outcomes. Instead, you’ll be wiser to focus on your home and family affairs, where there is scope for prudent planning and for ticking a few items off your list.

april 20 - may 20
Universal time is a chronological constant, all around the world. Those who live either side of the Prime Meridian that passes through the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, reside rather close to this in their everyday lives, while the further east you travel the later it gets and the opposite heading west. So to say the trickiest period for you this week comes on Thursday evening, needs to be adjusted according to your time zone. Bring all your inherent caution to the fore and don’t do anything uncharacteristically rash or hasty, between Thursday morning for those in Hawaii and the same time Friday if you’re in New Zealand…

may 21 - june 20
The end of the working week heralds a few challenges. But fortunately, the worst of these are relatively short-lived and there exists the likelihood of a positive outcome, if you can handle this situation with both the gravity and levity it demands. At work and also when it comes to your responsibilities elsewhere, other people’s expectations of you are considerable. Plus, you feel a strong sense of obligation when it comes to not letting them down and this serious approach stands you in good stead. While life at home proves hectic and exhausting, several issues that should have been addressed before now, return to the spotlight.

june 21 - july 22
For some time, your interpersonal relationships have been characterised by complexity and passion. Within the right context this can prove rewarding and memorable, but when the same issues extend to even run-of-the-mill associations, it becomes rather tiresome and unproductive. Power struggles, matters linked with dominance and control, jealousy, possessiveness, manipulation and an unspoken agenda have all been to the forefront. Circumstances have encouraged you to demonstrate your resilience and tenacity, else the cosmos assumes you haven’t learned your lesson and brings more of the same in your direction…

july 23 - august 22
Venus continues in your sign, so there is plenty in your favour. This planet is the brightest of those visible to the casual observer and you can spot it presently in the eastern sky before dawn. To the ancients its luminosity suggested great advantages; so nowadays Venus remains connected with loving relationships, material good fortune and an easier life. Certainly it will be hard to follow the months prior to August when Jupiter graced your constellation simultaneously. But nothing is over until that woman with the weight problem has treated us to a song. The more you are prepared to try, the better matters work out for you…

august 23 - september 22
Mars and Jupiter in your sign is a very fortunate combination. Jupiter is the kind of cosmic indulgence that only comes around every dozen years or so, making you for once and officially, head of the heavenly hit parade throughout the forthcoming year. Mars means activity and in combination with its larger neighbour, the concept of fortunate and auspicious action is definitely something to bear in mind. Anything you begin now has a better chance than usual of going well and whatever you start, should be with one eye on the future. Your activities are unlikely to get lost in minutiae and not being able to see the wood for the trees…

september 23 - october 22
The Sun and Mercury conjoin, with Mercury in front of the Sun. You won’t be able to see this yourself as the glare from the latter is far too intense, but both these bodies are in your constellation and remain so for several weeks. Let’s say you are reaching a few conclusions from a psychological point of view, that involve your own attitude and expectations more than you’d imagined. Perhaps others are unpredictable and occasionally a burden, yet this doesn’t mean you can act without constraint. On an individual level you maintain your freedom of choice, but from another perspective both fairness and justice remain important.

october 23 - november 21
Remember, introspection is not the same as keeping everything to yourself. Being endlessly wrapped up in your own concerns is different, from taking an objective look deep into your psyche, with some sort of positive consequence once this process concludes. Unravelling the influences that have made you and the behaviours you have learned along the way, is potentially a lifelong project that most will never countenance, let alone tackle or resolve. Yet unless you address them, these buried outcomes and echoes from the past, remain to trip you up at every opportunity. Usually, this will be when you least expected it…
- sagittarius : the archer - sagittarius
november 22 - december 21
It is difficult to know what to do for the best. You have cast around and checked out your escape routes, none of which look especially inviting or even, particularly promising. But maybe you are looking at your situation from an overly pessimistic point of view. Saturn represents a reality check with an extended duration, but then Jupiter at the apex of your horoscope promises success, once you have the bit between your teeth. To accept what needs to be done and the timescale necessary to achieve this, possibly looks the most daunting part. Acknowledging you’re in for the longer haul, seems the hardest thing about it all…
capricorn - capricorn : the sea-goat -
december 22 - january 19
The problem with Pluto and its extended visit to your sign, is the disregard for the finer points of human nature that a prolonged exposure to this planet can encourage. In certain circumstances, Pluto has been connected with a single-minded obsession and with an extreme focus on a limited range of objectives, to the exclusion of everything else. It has also been linked with power and manipulation, where an attitude of might makes right or believing those who control the resources hold all the cards, easily gains a foothold. Within your immediate circle, be careful others do not get the impression that only your aspirations count…
- aquarius : the water-bearer - aquarius
january 20 - february 18
A number of issues you’ve faced recently, have caused you to question ideas that beforehand, were the mainstays of your outlook on life, forming a framework you assumed was the truth. It has been rather an eye-opener, especially when it comes to the gulf that exists between the values you hold to be important and what everybody else says they believe instead. Obviously, it is not unusual for people to espouse different principles and priorities. But while you can sympathise with the basic nature of what those around you are saying, there seems to be scant acknowledgement in return, when it comes to your point of view…

february 19 - march 19
Relationships are a mixed bag at present. Some prove warm and friendly, even loving and affectionate, but at the same time others are a major irritation, making the time you spend around these people tense and unpleasant. Your experiences with folk who hail from a different background to you, perhaps another age group, country or walk of life are without doubt the most entertaining; you are intrigued and amused by their contrasting perspective and willing to make allowances on their behalf. Other people though, especially those who appear forthright and assertive, just rub you up the wrong way without even trying…
