March 21 – April 19 

Although certain aspects of your life may not be moving as quickly as you'd like, this week still shows promise. Indeed, because of the number of planets currently dancing backward, you'd do best to focus on smaller, more easily manageable projects or break bigger ones into smaller chunks. There's a chance your confidence may be lower than usual, but don't let that keep you from moving ahead. Friday's New Moon could be a call to continue your efforts even if only a step at a time. 



May 21 - Jun 20 

With Venus newly in your sign, you'll be ready to explore new social opportunities for pleasure and business. With a focus on Taurus in general, it's time to channel your energies into projects that are deeply meaningful to you, especially any long-held dreams that you may be in a position to realize. Easy does it, though, as you'd be wise to plan first and take special care regarding costs. Romance could be in the air, too, if you're ready to date and have fun. 



May 21 - Jun 20 

With a focus on your spiritual sector, you may be moving through a period of reflection. See the coming weeks as an opportunity to do a little emotional housecleaning and finally be done with issues that have been bugging you for some time. The New Moon on Friday could bring dazzling insights regarding situations or people that are ready to leave your life. Don't be too attached to them - let them go! It's time to make space for all the new opportunities coming your way.



 Jun 21 - Jul 22 

Your social life looks like it's moving through a lively, upbeat phase, with Tuesday showing special promise regarding one event. Whether it's a party or first date, you look set to have a wonderful time. Also, a reunion with old friends or even an old flame is possible. Just be careful about promising more than you can deliver, as the present setup could bring unexpected delays. Be conservative rather than overly generous in your estimate of what you can do.



Jul 23 - Aug 22 

With the Sun, Mercury, and Venus moving across the top of your chart, this is a good time to take stock and explore fresh possibilities associated with your career and major ambitions. With Friday's New Moon in this sector, you'll be well placed to start a new job or contract or enjoy time in the spotlight and make the most of it. Just go easy concerning finances, as the present alignment could see you buying items that, while desirable, may not be necessary. 



Aug 23 - Sep 22 

High adventure beckons, so be prepared to move out of your comfort zone and consider broadening your horizons. Indeed, if you're finding it difficult to make headway in key areas of life, turn your attention to exploring new options that might enable you to channel your energies elsewhere. You may experience such delays on the home front if family responsibilities keep you from doing as much as you'd like. Even so, small forays into new territory can leave you feeling upbeat. 



Sep 23 - Oct 22 

Your sector of secrets, shared expenses, and intimacy is very much in focus this week. And with the Sun and retrograde Mercury here, this is definitely the time to take stock and consider how you might get your money and intimate life back on track. Friday's New Moon can be the perfect opportunity for a fresh start, but you'd be wise not to rush into anything. Wait until Mercury pushes ahead again on May 22. Research your options in the meantime.



Oct 23 - Nov 21 

With Mercury now retrograde in your sector of relating, you'll have the perfect chance to resolve any niggling issues or disagreements with others. If certain deals or situations need tweaking or compromises need to be made, this is your chance to go for it. While Friday's New Moon can be the perfect time to take a relationship to the next level, don't hurry into anything. Keep the intention uppermost in your mind and see how you feel in a few weeks. 



Nov 22 - Dec 21 

Routines could get snarled as Mercury continues its backward dance. While inconvenient, you can use this phase to your advantage. Opt to rethink your timetable and the way you spend your days and consider making one or two radical changes so that life becomes easier and more efficient. See the weeks ahead as an opportunity to experiment with what works for you. With a number of planets now retrograde, reviewing your progress can be helpful in others areas of life, too.



Dec 22 - Jan 19 

Pleasure plans come to the fore as you and your sweetheart, love interest, or perhaps family and children come together in the spirit of fun and adventure. It can be a time of indulgence, too, as Venus in Taurus encourages romantic dates with all the trimmings. Cultural activities can also bring a lot of enjoyment your way. If you're eager to increase your musical or artistic knowledge, this is the time to do it. With Neptune prominent, be careful what you promise and to whom.



Jan 20 - Feb 18 

You'll be ready to take time off in the coming weeks, and the coming days are no exception. With a lively focus on your home and family zone, this is the ideal time to take the opportunity to kick back and relax, as well as spend time with those you're closest to. And with the New Moon in this same sector on Friday, you might feel motivated to give your place a makeover or clear out the clutter. If you have items to sell, you could make some money, too.



Feb 19 - Mar 20 

As Mercury continues retrograde in your sector of speech and mind, make sure to back up important files on your computer and put vital documents in a safe place. Enjoy the opportunity to reunite with old friends or spend time with family members you haven't seen in a while. If you've had a minor brush with a neighbor, the present lineup makes this the perfect time to smooth things over and get back on good terms. Watch out for mixed signals in relationships, too.
