Aries March 21 to April 20
Sometimes an opportunity isn’t what it appears.
Truth is, Aries, you’re not in control of what’s going on with those around you as much as you think and that may be a good thing.
Leave them to get on with it and when the time is right, strike. Swift ootwork this week could put you exactly where you want to be.
At home, the solstice highlights what needs adjusting there, be it bricks and mortar or those you live with.
Taurus April 21 to May 21
You appear to be running out of steam as far as one project is concerned.
Sometimes when we give up we gain so much more in return, including a better perspective. So let it go.
Money is your next challenge and the focus is on how you can make more, not spend it.
Venus has seen to the latter but Mars is having none of it – he wants opportunities exploited, belts tightened and all the energy you’ve saved elsewhere put into money-making schemes.
Gemini May 22 to June 21
It’s a case of one in and one out this Tuesday as you lose the Sun and gain Mars.
It’s not a bad exchange and you get to keep Venus so you’re still as shiny and appealing to those you continue to charm.
What you actually lose is frustration over all those plans you’ve had that aren’t coming to fruition and you gain an opportunity to look at money-making potential.
Get to it, Gemini, put some effort into realising your dreams.
Cancer June 22 to July 23
The Sun is about to hit his highest point and as he does he will start to wane.
Shorter nights beckon and the winter king gets his icy boots ready to put on. Cheery. Then again it’s your birthday time – hooray.
It’s your happy new year so make some resolutions and build them big. New people in your life are helping dreams come true.
Conversations are deep and meaningful. Love, work or family, it’s time to prepare for great things.
Leo July 24 to Aug 23
You couldn’t have seen how things could have changed but now you’re in the position where reacting is all you can do – so do it quickly.
Work is the most likely arena so politics are still at play but you won’t be taken for anyone’s fool. Good for you.
For single Leos, the thrust of Mars into your social sky is something that could send Venus into a tizzy.
She has missed her running mate and, now he has arrived, that tizzy gets you busy. Use his move to improve your own love life.
Virgo Aug 24 to Sep 23
It seems someone is moving on and you’re not entirely sure whether you should be stopping them or helping them on their way.
So do nothing at all Virgo, keep yourself out of it and accept that things are changing.
You have Mars at the top of your chart from Tuesday, the Sun in your social sky the same day and Venus somewhere between the two offering you a career boost and more cash.
Libra Sept 24 to Oct 23
Earlier this month Saturn began to introduce what could be very good for you.
Now he’s getting some help from the Sun. From Tuesday, it is illuminating your career sky and leading the way for others to follow and Mercury is already there.
Use these guys, in conjunction with Venus and Mars, to put you at the heart of the in-crowd, to mix with the movers and shakers so you can move and shake too.
Scorpio Oct 24 to Nov 22
Mars, your ruler and passionate master, is leaving your love sky but don’t panic.
He is moving into the eighth house of your solar chart and with Jupiter in your love sky and Neptune showering new love affairs with magical meetings, it would be a small wonder if you see daylight this week.
If you really can’t be bothered then maybe these planets are suggesting you look at a relationship where you’re owed some cash.
Sagittarius Nov 23 to Dec 21
The Sun says farewell to your relationships sky and hello to what your other half has been spending money on.
If you fail to bring the subject up it could set itself into fester mode and that won’t be pretty.
Love is interesting as the Sun moves out because Mars moves in to join Venus and even if the old ball and chain has been silly with credit card, it’s clear you’re still smitten.
Capricorn Dec 22 to Jan 20
The opposing forces of Pluto and Mercury are setting up camp between you and your other half.
Nothing will be resolved if all you do is talk and don’t listen. From Tuesday things start to become clearer and both of you can begin to come to a compromise.
Work is a hot bed of lust for those who are looking for romance among the staplers.
Aquarius Jan 21 to Feb 19
You may think that bloke over there fancies you but that wink might have been a blink. Don’t be disappointed, there are plenty of options coming your way as Venus and Mars now bring some excitement to your love life.
On the domestic front, things are getting steadier and after a few weeks of heated debate you’re getting to the root of what’s been going on. At work, forming a surprise alliance could be the best way to get round a problem.
Pisces Feb 20 to Mar 20
A falling out with friends may not be as bad as you think – maybe they need some time before you can sit down and talk things out.
For some the issues may be with a new love or a romance that isn’t going the way you would have wanted.
On the domestic front Mars is about to stir things up. Don’t panic, Pisces, that could be a very good thing and it may mean you get that new kitchen you’ve been after, or a wayward lodger moves out.
