march 20 - april 19
You are uncharacteristically rattled by the need to make a swift decision. While many would consider these feelings only normal and natural, you are desperate not to miss out on opportunities needing initiative, determination and prompt action. Mars in particular, firmly established in Aries, suggests the perfect opportunity for tying up loose ends, and considering how you can bring old issues to a final conclusion. The only downside is a lurking expectation your conclusions and the cosmos, have different goals in the long term. Yet there is a path to strike between inertia and independence. Try to rise above your anxieties.
>> taurus - taurus : the bull -
july 20 - july 20
With Uranus remaining in the constellation of the Bull, you might be wondering whether the sign or the planet is strongest. This is not always a clear-cut comparison, but depends on your circumstances and the mindset of those who currently take up most of your time. This may be the folk with whom you have been spending the bulk of your private life; any work interests, your work/life balance and on how capable you are of sorting this out for yourself. Suffice it to say those who are largely independent, will keep going along the same way. Those who are diametrically disposed, repeat their customary behaviour in turn too…

may 21 - june 20
Gazing at unknown rafts of the stellar fiduciary, it is hard for the beginner to figure which of thousands of tiny lights constitutes a planet and which represents a star, like our Sun. Mainly it is just a question of size, with larger bodies distinguishing themselves by looking brighter and of course, by slowly altering the neighbourhood each one inhabits. With the Moon at night and the Sun during daylight hours, Venus is the brightest object you’ll see in the sky bar these two. During July, the Sun begins to tempt Venus back into line again, only now as the morning star. The latter’s reputation saw a battering, except not irreparably so.
>> cancer - cancer : the crab -
june 21 - july 22
The annular eclipse on the June solstice, represented something important. It is also helpful to remember that eclipse phenomena, are not random events. The astrophysics behind them remains like a lifelong insurance policy that is unique to you, and in terms of ongoing eventualities, so these do not necessarily need to dominate every waking moment. Sometimes taking a step backwards, means literally standing away, listening to the messages from your subconscious, that can exert a conscious fallout far beyond their misty origins. Don’t feel you must be consciously alert, nor maintain 100% connectivity, all the time…
- leo : the lion - >> leo
july 23 - august 22
The Sun hits your constellation from July 22, ending what has seemed to be the most interminable wait in the corridor. Yet the fastest and swiftest developments made previously can render their best effects almost glacially slowly, when happening in reverse. Remember too that intense data input can be dwarfed by mega-pixel Internet and human interaction. It is horses for courses when one set of circumstances, that looks almost superhuman under one range of conditions, appears obsolete beneath the forthcoming round. It means while your core identity remains the same, you need to keep on changing with the times.
>> virgo - virgo : the maiden -
august 23 - september 22
Mars and Neptune in the area of your birthchart dealing awkwardly and clumsily with these circumstances, doesn't help. Your intentions when trying to alleviate any pain and tension originate with and from the best of intentions, but are more likely to fail than to succeed. There is too much water passing under the bridge, too great a chance of unnecessarily complexity and an inflated prospect you’ll snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. You should rely on your own judgement and while at times, some help from outside proves more or less indispensable, this isn’t an affair you’ll ever be able to put fully in the hands of others.

september 23 - october 22
Your health is complicated. Everyday medications could cause unusual or unwanted side effects. Routine drugs that usually work synergistically interact in an unexpected fashion, leading to the need for a degree of dose titration, along with other combinations that might better be avoided, or giving holistic and alternative therapies more of an opportunity than usual. Your emotional state is linked directly to your physical and mental well-being, so crossing the boundaries between treatment and normal living is a good idea. Try counselling; talking therapies, moderate exercise, reflexology, pets and watching what you eat…
>> scorpio - scorpio : the scorpion -
october 23 - november 21
Jupiter currently lurks around the foundations of your horoscope, so while a short break would still work out well somewhere moderately familiar instead of totally alien, you’d never thrive in an environment that conspired to be totally the same as usual, rather than at times even slightly intriguing and stimulating. With all the changes you have been through lately, you may feel even you have seen enough and should confine your travels to tours with better toilet facilities, a nearby destination and a few sturdy packets of Lomotil. Alternatively; you may find using your mind in a course of online study, could fulfil a similar role…
- sagittarius : the archer - >> sagittarius
november 22 - december 21
The Centaur values money, yet you have a way of expressing your fondness, that doesn’t seem overly materialistic. Let’s say you love education and learning, which often means travelling to see your gurus, visiting places of worship and venues of spiritual enlightenment. In this mystic environment you throw your belongings out of the window in a calculated way they are easy to retrieve, but making it look you’ve needed your powers of perception to work a lot harder. Only by then, you audience has seen and heard enough. Doubtless, they’re intrigued and quite probably, intensely fascinated and at least partially hooked.
>> capricorn - capricorn : the sea-goat -
december 22 - january 19
From the beginning of July and onwards Saturn returns to your sign again, only this time you will have a bit more style and finesse the second time around, even if this means being a bunch less greedy and selfish. You realise that working in specific fields, you’ll have a far greater chance of success, if you can revolve in certain areas without feeling watchful, limited and compromised. If you can also express yourself in an unusual way, but still a manner that fits the situation perfectly, then people love this new caring you. Especially those who would accept less money, to place their own spiritual advancement first…
- aquarius : the water-bearer - >> aquarius
january 20 - february 18
It has taken most Aquarians some time to realise, that although money is clearly not the answer, it can certainly help either you or others to obtain, the wherewithal necessary to survive in everyday circumstances. You have quite an issue with the financial side of life, but when your freedom to move forward in the manner you feel is right for you is threatened, then you will bring your ingenuity in to effect to ensure it still happens. Making one person’s life rather more bearable, when it could never have been that great anyhow, it’s in the interests of improving the world immeasurably and indefinitely that counts…
>> pisces - pisces : the fishes -
february 19 - march 19
Late during June, Mars moved into Aries, representing the monetary and financial sector of your natal horoscope, where the circumstances of its position are harder to handle. From your own perspective, the consequences of your current situation are limited by circumstances. This means where you have been squeaky clean and acted in accordance with civil and moral law, there are no doubts due. Where a few short cuts have been taken, only where these have infringed your basic moral and /or legal rights, made other people’s life worse, cut corners or created pointless issues, should you be feeling any remorse at all.
