Aries March 21 - April 19

Although there's fun to be had, this week does have its moments. A developing tension could reach its peak midweek, resulting in either a breakthrough or a meltdown. As an edgy blend of e

nergies encourages a clash of views, you'll need to stand your ground in order to make the best of the situation. There's also a New Moon on Wednesday, which might encourage a fresh start reached through making one or two key decisions. Later, lifestyle matters develop in importance.


Taurus April 20 - May 20

Social opportunities and home-based entertainment can bring plenty of satisfaction and a chance to mingle with new people. Communication and interaction can play an important part in the events of this week, particularly if something needs to be discussed. In order to make the best use of this week's influences, it helps to tackle any misunderstandings early, before they have a chance to fester. The New Moon can bring an chance to forgive, forget, and start again with a clean slate. 


Gemini May 21 - June 20

Make use of positive influences to advertise your goods and services. Don't let this be hit or miss - you'll have better success with a well-planned strategy. Watch finances around Wednesday, when you may have to scramble to pay a bill or deal with an unexpected expense. If you know what's coming, you can keep things from taking a downward turn. The New Moon encourages you to make a fresh start by working out a budget that allows you to save and have fun. 


Cancer June 21 - July 22

It's time to secure your boundaries and stand up for your principles. A potent alignment that peaks midweek needs handling with care. While it's an opportunity to make a few changes, you might have to deal with other people's objections, which could be a hassle. Your courage and determination seem to increase with the potent New Moon in Cancer. If you know what you want, the days ahead can be instrumental in encouraging you to get it, no matter what the consequences. 


Leo July 23 - August 22

Make time to relax and connect with your feelings and heartfelt desires. If you've been busy meeting deadlines, dealing with the pressures of everyday life, and keeping all the plates in the air, it's time to kick back and recharge. Allow time to reflect on any problems, creative projects, or inspired ideas, as time spent doing so can bring the answers you need. Wednesday's New Moon encourages you to make meditation or other spiritual practices a regular thing for peace of mind. 


Virgo August 23 - September 22

The path of true love may not be smooth this week, especially when it comes to a budding romance. If tension has been building or you've noticed jealousy from a friend or competitor, you'll need to tread carefully. An early heart-to-heart talk can accomplish much, but if you overreact spontaneously, especially midweek, you could lose out in the long term. Venus edges into your sign on Saturday, making you an even more attractive and desirable option. 


Libra September 23 – October 22

Money matters continue to be important, particularly early on. It helps to curb indulgence in order to save for something a little bit special. Your work/life balance may need attention over the days ahead, particularly if family members object to your plans. Your current focus is on forging ahead with your career or personal ambitions, but you might need to water down your schedule to tend to family responsibilities. Later, Venus in Virgo encourages you to keep a secret. 


Scorpio October 23 - November 21

You'll shine in the spotlight this week, particularly if you showcase your products and skills. This isn't the time to hide your light away. You could encounter a lot of red tape in the pursuit of one plan, which may cause obstacles and frustration. You'll need to be determined if you're going to resolve it, particularly if it lingers until midweek. The New Moon can be an excellent opportunity to start a course or travel to expand your horizons.


Sagittarius November 22 - December 21

Pay attention to financial matters, particularly if you've let things drift recently. This week's intense blend of energies suggests that things could be urgent unless you take action sooner rather than later. The New Moon offers a chance for a fresh start, particularly if you're willing to discuss your issues with someone who can offer some helpful advice. And if you haven't had a break for a while, make a point of enjoying a short vacation and a chance to unwind. 


Capricorn December 22 - January 19

If you face an edgy situation this week, try to compromise. A matter that has been building up could boil over, and you might need to adopt a conciliatory note to resolve it. Although the influences involved could encourage outbursts and arguments, you'd be better off engaging those involved in a heart-to-heart chat. Putting yourself in their shoes can help you understand where they're coming from and how to respond. Saturday's move of Venus to Virgo hints at romance in an exotic setting.


Aquarius January 20 - February 18

It seems you'll be busy juggling all kinds of chores, deadlines, and other tasks this week. Try to give yourself a chance to recharge, especially if you've been under pressure for some time. The presence of Saturn in your career sector may mean you have even more on your plate, so it's vital to pace yourself. The New Moon can help you decide to make a few changes, particularly if you're eager to tweak your everyday routines and schedules.


Pisces February 19 - March 20

There's a passionate and rather intense quality to romantic relationships, which might enhance intimacy. If you and another are just getting to know each other, things could get pretty hot and spicy over the week ahead. Be sure this is what you want before you get too involved. Venus dances into Virgo on Saturday, adding extra warmth to all of your business or romance interactions. However, avoid being too critical of certain people if you want to keep the peace.
