Aries Mar 21 - Apr 19


Though there's a fun element to the week, you'll also be aware of a difficult issue that needs attention. For instance, the heady enjoyment of romance might contrast with problems around finances, which take the edge off of a date night or special occasion. Things might be made all the more difficult as your motivation could limp along on Thursday and Friday. You'll need to summon your energy and make a determined effort to face up to whatever is bothering you. It's party time over the weekend!




Taurus Apr 20 – May 20


There may be a power struggle going on, so be careful what you say if you want to come out of it looking good. Words can sting, especially at this time when Mars in Scorpio can encourage heated disagreements. Yet with a little diplomacy you'll be able to talk through matters and soothe ruffled feathers. Over the weekend the Full Moon in Aquarius suggests you may be in the spotlight for one reason or another. You'll also get a chance to reflect upon your goals and priorities.




Gemini May 21 - Jun 20


There's a lively social undertone this week encouraging you to pursue contacts, friendships, and memberships. Yet you may need to work hard at communicating with a significant other, particularly if you're not seeing eye-to-eye. Stubbornness could be a major stumbling block if neither of you is willing to compromise. Perhaps you both want the same thing in the end, which you'll find out by keeping the conversation going. Meanwhile, there's a chance of romance over the weekend.




Cancer Jun 21 - Jul 22


Directing your energy into the right channels brings opportunities for success. In this case, brainstorming moneymaking ideas and coming up with creative outlets for your talents could substantially increase your income. When it comes to romance, though, a love interest could be irritable and hard to please. Persuading the person to join you for a social outing or date night could be an uphill struggle. But the weekend Full Moon could be your saving grace in this regard, encouraging positive interaction.




Leo Jul 23 - Aug 22


You're vibrating to the social buzz of summer and eager to mix and mingle with pals and associates. And you're truly in your element with your astrological ruler, the Sun, in your sign. But you could be treading a fine line when it comes to home and family matters. Your upbeat mood could be offset by someone's darker and more manipulative energy. However, the Full Moon on Sunday may push you into saying things you've been holding back - to good effect.




Virgo Aug 23 - Sep 22


Though you may be busy this week, the current lineup hints that this is a good time to relax and recharge. With a focus on your spiritual sector, your inner world and inner life may seem more appealing and even more important than your day-to-day circumstances. Meditating and reflecting on your goals and dreams could be particularly rewarding, especially if you've been feeling uncertain about a course of action. Time out can bring valuable insights and clarity concerning decisions that need to be made.




Libra Sep 23 - Oct 22


With partnership activity stimulated, there may be a few kinks and disagreements to work through before you can make progress this week. At times you could hit up against communication problems that might not yield easily to discussion or compromise. However, with a fabulous social scene showing up, time spent with friends can help ease any heartache. The result will be that you'll begin to see things from a healthier and more relaxed perspective. However, aim for sensitivity when dealing with loved ones.




Scorpio Oct 23 - Nov 21


A fortunate trend provides freedom of action and the chance to showcase your skills and abilities to good effect. With a sizzling focus on career, opportunities abound for enhancing work and business success. However, you may need to clear up unfinished business first in order to be ready for new and exciting projects. There could be a conflict of interest that you'll need to resolve before you can take advantage of the smorgasbord of favorable circumstances on offer. The Full Moon is excellent for partying over the weekend.




Sagittarius Nov 22 - Dec 21


The urge to get away is strong, which could mean getting lost in a daydream, fantasy, good book, or movie. Equally, you'll be eager to travel to new places and explore new horizons. Whether or not you can take a trip now, contemplating one for the future may give you something to look forward to. Watch out for the Full Moon on Sunday, as feelings could be intense. Try not to do or say anything that you might regret at a later date - but do have fun!




Capricorn Dec 22 - Jan 19


An opulent lineup in your zone of shared resources hints at a windfall or increase in business and income. However, there could be a temptation to indulge. It could be all too easy to max out your credit card and come unstuck later. Budgeting may be a way to go in order to guard against this. In addition, your social life looks livelier than has been in some time. Use this opportunity to network with folks who pull the strings and make the decisions.




Aquarius Jan 20 - Feb 18


While it won't all be clear sailing in your career, a more focused and incisive frame of mind can make solid headway possible. When talking to others, you might need to ignore their words and instead go with your gut feelings, particularly when sussing out deals or job opportunities. However, relationships of all kinds continue to flourish. Whether you're in a long-term partnership or looking for love, the week ahead brings all the ingredients together for you to have as much fun as possible.




Pisces Feb 19 - Mar 20

Where your job and lifestyle are concerned, whether you feel a restless stirring within or circumstances beyond your control provide the motivation, it's to your advantage to embrace the notion of change. Passions are strong when it comes to expanding your horizons in general, giving you the courage to make a bold move. The presence of Mars in Scorpio can push you to explore new options. You may be looking for something that speaks to your need for intense experiences that can transform your life.
