Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)

You will be determined to replace all the things that no longer count in your life with something fresh and exciting. Whether this applies to your personal life or your work only you will know for certain.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)

A Mercury-Saturn union will make you sensitive to criticism, and unusually reluctant to answer back. But could there be more than a grain of truth in the words of a loved one? Everyone needs their faults pointed out at times.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)

A number of minor things may not be working out as you’d like them to but they only seem so critical because you’re paying them too much attention. Do what you feel comfortable with this week and ignore all else. If something doesn’t work then it really doesn’t matter.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)

A potent New Moon in that area of your chart relating to your status and standing in the world at large can mean only one thing: success is on the way. Plans you made many moons ago are about to bear the sweetest kind of fruit. Soon you will know all the effort was worthwhile.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

There is nothing subtle about this week’s positive aspect between your logical ruler, Mercury, and structured Saturn. The facts have been laid out in front of you and it is you who must decide how to respond.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

Some things matter, some don’t, and this week’s powerful New Moon will leave you in no doubt which is which. Even if your finances aren’t as bright as you’d like them to be, there is still plenty to be thankful for - and plenty you can do to improve the situation.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

You love finding patterns – experience has taught you life is anything but a random process. A pattern will reveal itself to you this week and you will immediately see ways to exploit it, financially and professionally. But that’s fine – you’re entitled to benefit from your intelligence.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Common sense should tell you the best way to bring a project to fruition is to leave it alone. It may be taking longer than you would like but you can be sure there’s a reason for that. Tampering with something that doesn’t need fixing is an invitation to disaster.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)

If you desire something so strongly that you think about it all the time then you might as well make the effort to turn your dream into reality. Deep down you may wonder if it will do you much good but how will you know for certain unless you experience it yourself?

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)

You will have so many ideas buzzing around your brain this week you may feel a little giddy. Fortunately, with rational Mercury linked to self-disciplined Saturn, you’ll recognise the need to focus on one thing at a time. Keep your feet on the ground and you won’t fall over.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

You may be eager to get started on something but deep down you know the time is not quite right. Once Venus leaves your birth sign on Friday you’ll get a more accurate picture of your current situation. Only then can you make your move without fear of failure.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

In common with the tortoise and the hare, some races require stamina more than speed. You may be tempted to give up on a business arrangement which has become a drain on your resources, but if you stick it out a bit longer you’ll see the breakthrough you’ve been waiting for.
