Matters at work are moving slower than you’d like. You believe big changes are necessary and in your customary fashion, you’re eager to see these happening right away. Saturn at the apex of your horoscope suggests a number of obstacles and delays are likely to continue though, although you can take some solace in the knowledge that your progress, still proves very lasting: even if in a way rather different from what you set out to achieve. So you’re safest moderating your impatience a little and relying on your own resources wherever you can, despite the lucrative offers and persuasive people, likely to come your way.

Let’s enumerate the positives of Uranus in your sign. Where life is dull, tedious and limiting, the planet of surprise and originality can enliven your lot. Of course, if you’re actually rather fond of your regular rut and the general groove you already occupy, you may find yourself at quite a loss to imagine how this is supposed to benefit you. But everyone, no matter how comfortable or satisfied has some tendency or trait they would like to improve; something different they’d be keen to try, or another destination they have always wanted to visit. Even if it is just new clothes, jewellery or another hairstyle; why not give it a whirl?

From late May until the start of July, one planet after another in your zodiac sign gets embroiled in a complicated, but creative scenario with Jupiter across the sky and Neptune at right-angles to this axis. Mercury initiates things, then the Sun takes its place at the New Moon. Venus assumes control two weeks later, before the Moon alone sees you through to July. Although tricky, this is not a harsh combination. The danger comes if you prematurely trust or empathise with somebody who seems entirely plausible, without giving them the time to prove themselves. The same applies to any foolproof schemes, especially at work.

june 21 - july 22
Across Earth’s Northern Hemisphere the June solstice marks the longest days, more clement weather and a natural abundance, as plants and animals all hurry to make the most of this often short-lived state of affairs. With your links to motherhood and this time of the year, it is not surprising the Moon was made your ruler, in the region of the world where Western astrology has its roots. Your receptive, empathic and traditionally ‘feminine’ perspective is tested this month, by three planetary visitors that are traditionally very male. Try to tackle any issues before they approach boiling point, especially with those close to you.

Finally, you notice a little progress, even if you need to wait until almost the end of this month to see it. Mercury’s arrival is the first planetary attention you’ve enjoyed in a while. Since Mercury is accepted to represent communication, it favours all kinds of activities that involve spreading the word. Writers, journalists and broadcasters will benefit the most obviously; but this is also a wonderful time to launch a new product, sign a contract, trade or advertise. Neighbours and community activities assume greater prominence, as do any siblings. It is helpful to remember that listening skills form part of a close rapport…

august 23 - september 22
Oddly enough, this is a good time for almost anything, so long as you are careful when other people get involved. Even then your experience doesn’t need to be negative, but the more ready you are for these celestial shenanigans, the more likely you are to dodge unnecessary unpleasantries. These trends can even work out in your favour, but it depends on your willingness to act. In the best scenarios, your friends prove forthright and courageous, while your partnerships are dreamy and inspired. At worst, almost everybody makes you angry, while your take on people’s motives and character is diametrically incorrect.

september 23 - october 22
What you’ve achieved and where you’re heading are two sources of concern. Why they should suddenly be to the forefront is a matter of conjecture, but the stars suggest that when life gets tinged with a hint of sadness and regret, then in it only human nature to seek justification and consolation, in more tangible achievements that are customarily reckoned to count. Being financially secure, somehow compensates for a lifetime wasted in a job you hate. Owning your own home, outranks a paucity of family and affection. Hopefully, this mood is only temporary. Viewed objectively even you can see, such criteria are unjustified.

A complicated cosmic paradigm during June sees your everyday circumstances in stark contrast to the picture of perfection you’ve developed in your mind. Much as you have struggled to make changes these have been slow to eventuate, with obstacles at every turn and an overwhelming resistance to your ideas. Certainly, those you closely associate with are not helping this situation to improve. While your material prospects are safeguarded by these relationships, how long you can maintain them for the sake of stability is debatable. It is almost by trying to play things safe, you encourage the disruption you’re keen to avoid.

november 22 - december 21
While your traditional ruler Jupiter remains in your sign, the world is your oyster. It is fair to point out that your prospects are currently disproportionately limited by your expectations. If you can only see yourself working in your local convenience store, then this for the most part is what you’ll achieve. If you believe a rather helpless and ineffectual partner is all you deserve, then congratulations: because such individuals are never hard to find. Hopefully though, you will have broader horizons these days and won’t allow past disappointments to knock the stuffing out of you. That was then, not now. Know what the stars are saying?

Saturn, a beautiful planet and also your ruler, remains in your sign. Here it draws inexorably closer to Pluto: a member of the Solar System far distant in terms of miles, but sharing the accolade of the most feared celestial augury, among those with a limited understanding. Much of that reputation, comes from the karmic associations of these planets. Still, if you’ve behaved as you should, there is nothing to dread. Karma is only a bitch if you are, as the proverb goes. Even if worst comes to the worst; you’ve doubtless made adequate provision. Maybe the point of this exercise: is helping you to figure out what really counts?

Whether you’re a pauper or comfortably off, Neptune’s journey through Pisces over the past eight years, has changed your attitude to the material world considerably. Your actions might have appeared quite inexplicable, almost as if you deliberately threw it all away, to find the person you were underneath. And astonishingly, you are still here: you’re happier and coming out the other side. You’ll never be the world’s richest person, not counting wealth in terms of money and property. But there is an enduring prosperity that comes with insight and wisdom, while the universe grows proportionately intent on looking after you.

This month, your ruler Neptune forms two powerful contacts with the social planets, Jupiter and Saturn. The former happens roughly every seven years, while the latter is rarer and hasn’t been seen since the mid-Nineties. Jupiter is at a right angle to Neptune in your sign. This is a positive, expansive and lucky combination, but it might incline you to go overboard and take unnecessary risks. Fortunately, Saturn provides just the sense and stability you need, to make the most of these opportunities and even create a few of your own. This can be an excellent month, especially around the full moon and the days either side.
