This week the themes of power and control seem to permeate throughout the heavens. Pluto, the planet that embodies these characteristics, links both to Venus, and to Gemini’s new moon. But although this dark and distant planet may revel in the absence of the moon’s light, it’s not all doom and gloom. Mercury is leaving its shadow and allowing us to focus on new ideas with fresh perspective. If you feel pulled about like a puppet, just remember Pinocchio. With a pure heart, we can tug our own strings.
ARIES MAR 21–APR 20
Do people see you as approachable? Someone who’s willing to be patient and listen carefully to the concerns of others? You’re certainly capable of such behaviour, but it might not be the stake upon which your reputation hangs. You’ve been too busy out in the world, getting things done and making a difference, to be always available, on tap, for anyone. This week, it’s time to slow down and soften your image. If you take time to show someone that you care about them, you’ll make a valuable and lasting connection. Worried? Call to hear your unmissable indepth, forecast: 1902 222 500.
TAURUS APR 21 – MAY 21
“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind. And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.” Academics have discussed this line from Shakespeare. The first part makes sense, but why should it place Cupid at a disadvantage? Doesn’t Cupid govern the heart, and isn’t the heart even more inclined to look beyond the superficial? With Pluto’s links to Venus, your love for someone or something may be proving hard for you, or anyone else, to understand. But it’s teaching you a valuable lesson. Be willing to learn. Anxious?

GEMINI MAY 22–JUN 22
While Venus may be the planet most traditionally associated with love, it’s the moon that governs our emotions. And this week it turns dark in your sector of the sky. But just because it disappears doesn’t mean that we don’t feel its effect. Far from it. This is a time when your cool and analytical mind may be overwhelmed by the beating of your heart, giving you a new perspective from which to view your relationships. Give yourself permission to experience wonderful feelings that you never realised you had. Confused? Call to hear your unmissable in-depth, forecast: 1902 222 500.
CANCER JUN 23–JUL 23
You often become more vulnerable in the days prior to the dark of the moon. It makes you more emotionally sensitive, and receptive to the moods and feelings of others. That’s fine if you can rely on them to express positivity. But if your loved ones behave badly, or if strangers speak sharply, you lose access to some of your usual defence mechanisms. Yet sometimes, it is only when we’re soft that we allow new possibilities to arise. And, with Venus linked to Pluto, that could be about to happen now. Uncertain?

LEO JUL 24–AUG 23
“I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more” sang The Proclaimers. It seems they knew the value of a gesture, and weren’t afraid to journey far and wide in pursuit of love. Your heart too has been on a journey. It may not have passed the 1000-mile mark, but it’s certainly been round the block a few times. And yet, it’s imperative that you stay optimistic about your ability to feel love and offer the same in return. Look for the positive this week. You’ll discover the difference that experience makes.

VIRGO AUG 24–SEP 23
They say there’s no such thing as a free lunch. If that’s so, perhaps there’s no such thing as unconditional love, either. Perhaps everything has a price. Perhaps no one’s capable of giving, without expecting something in return. Are you depressed yet? Well, don’t be. You may not be about to discover that your world’s full of altruists and slavish devotees. But with Mercury’s link to Pluto, you’re about to find that you can supply what someone’s asking you for – and that they in return can do you a vital favour. Anxious?

LIBRA SEP 24–OCT 23
“Ooh-bee-doo” as Louis Prima sang when playing the orangutan king in The Jungle Book, “I wannabe like you-ooh-ooh”. And, although your life may not be an open book, I can see why it could feel like a jungle. Rather like King Louie, who was fascinated by Mowgli’s fire, you’re fascinated by someone’s abilities and style. It’s as though they have the key to a secret power which you’d love to be able to use to help yourself. Yet we all have our own strengths. This week, don’t underestimate the power of your emotions.

SCORPIO OCT 24–NOV 22
How deeply do you believe in yourself? Are you treating yourself in ways your own harshest critic might hesitate to do? What lies behind a suspicion that perhaps you don’t deserve the love your heart yearns for? No matter what seems wrong, or missing in your personal life, the first priority must be to rediscover your self-belief and self-worth. From this, all you require will come. As caring Venus and the new moon link to your ruler, you’ll yet attract, into your life, the support that you truly ought to have. Uncertain?

SAGITTARIUS NOV 23–DEC 21
My three-year-old is scared of the dark. That’s hardly surprising – it seems to be a primal fear that’s hardwired into humanity. Most of us get over it as we grow up. But we may still walk a little quicker on a poorly lit street as we make our way home. Opposite your sign this week the moon grows dark. This is nothing to be feared. It’s not a threat emerging from the shadows. It is a wonderful emotional opportunity. Where, in your life, can you start anew in a vital relationship? Here comes your new beginning. Worried?

CAPRICORN DEC 22–JAN 20
Things can’t be exactly the way you wish they could be. But why should this represent pain or frustration? Can’t you wish for something else instead? Suppose you start hoping for the very thing that you’ve actually got already – or that you might soon be reasonably expected to get? As Venus links to Pluto, you can let go of a regret. Haunting memories and unfilled hopes can be forgotten. Then, what currently seems like a gap in your life can start to be filled with satisfying and meaningful encounters. Anxious?

AQUARIUS JAN 21–FEB 19
The stars point to a week of emotional expression and whole-heartedness. It would certainly make a change! Too often, you feel duty-bound to be the one who tempers creativity with realism, who points out the fatal flaw in an otherwise perfect scenario. Here’s your chance to be optimistic, generous and unapologetically emotional. There’s great depth of feeling within you. Don’t be afraid of tapping that spring. And certainly don’t shy away from allowing others to drink from it. No matter what, you’ll find it refreshing. Confused? Call to hear your unmissable in-depth, forecast: 1902 222 500.
PISCES FEB 20–MAR 20
The Mariana Trench is more than six miles deep. It makes the Grand Canyon look like a tiny crevice. But if you want a real example of a bottomless pit, you don’t have to look so far. Just consider your own endless appetite for reassurance and emotional security. Who can possibly ever supply all the love that you desire and deserve? That’s a superhuman task. But then, some people are both human and “super”. Your love life may not yet be bringing you all you want but, with the Venus’s links to Pluto, it may come close. Uncertain?
