This week, Mer­cury leaps into Scor­pio, does a back­flip, and a twirl, then lands per­fectly to please the judges. That’s be­cause it con­juncts Jupiter, the planet of hope, op­ti­mism and op­por­tu­nity, and boosts our men­tal agility. But it’s not just our minds that can be per­fectly poised. With Venus re­turn­ing home to Li­bra, our hearts can achieve a bet­ter sense of bal­ance. And with the new moon op­po­site Uranus, though the bar may be high, we’ll be lim­ber enough to reach it!

ARIES MAR 21–APR 20

They say that love con­quers all. Sadly, of­ten this is not the case. Na­tions and part­ner­ships can be­come di­vided by ar­bi­trary cir­cum­stances. But, how­ever dif­fi­cult the bat­tle may be­come, love’s con­quest re­mains far from over. No mat­ter how many times it is beaten into re­treat, it re­turns and will re­turn again to ad­vance upon ter­ri­tory where it’s looked upon as a longed-for stranger. Venus is mov­ing op­po­site Aries this week­end while Mer­cury also op­poses Uranus in your sign. Don’t fear an am­bush. In­stead, wel­come the cav­alry. Pow­er­ful changes are pos­si­ble as Venus brings in­spi­ra­tion. Call 1902 222 500.

TAU­RUS APR 21 – MAY 21

Think of how you con­verse with a friend or loved one. Both of you take time to lis­ten to each other and then pro­vide hon­est re­sponses. Com­pare this to the in­ter­ac­tions you may have with oth­ers, where you don’t gen­uinely lis­ten, or it seems like you’re both just giv­ing your opin­ion with­out con­sid­er­ing the other. The plan­ets now of­fer a rare op­por­tu­nity to deepen a con­nec­tion you al­ready have, and make it into a more emo­tional link. Be bold in tak­ing the first step and pay proper at­ten­tion to what is be­ing said. It’s an ex­cit­ing week as Venus, the planet of love, changes signs. Call 1902 222 500.

GEM­INI MAY 22–JUN 22

As C. S. Lewis once wrote, “To love at all is to be vul­ner­a­ble”. It is to take a leap of faith, to place your whole world and life in the hands of an­other. That is why, when we do so, we pray it is for­ever. But what hap­pens if it isn’t? If one day our heart is re­turned to us, dam­aged and un­wanted? Or, con­versely, if our own af­fec­tions stray? For­ever is a prom­ise none of us are en­ti­tled to make but, what­ever you do, don’t dis­card some­thing that may be mag­i­cal for fear of fu­ture sad­ness. Pow­er­ful changes are pos­si­ble as Venus brings in­spi­ra­tion. Call 1902 222 500.

CAN­CER JUN 23–JUL 23

A lot has been left un­said. Many loose ends are far from be­ing tied. Much re­mains un­re­solved. Is this about to change? Are all your var­i­ous ques­tions about to be an­swered, all the plot­lines in your life tied up in a neat bow? No, and thank heav­ens for that. How bor­ing life would be­come with every­thing pre­dictable! Don’t try to solve every­thing. Just tackle one thing that’s wor­ry­ing you. If you are coura­geous and hold a can­did con­ver­sa­tion, you might be sur­prised how pos­i­tive the out­come is. It’s an ex­cit­ing week as Venus, the planet of love, changes signs. Call 1902 222 500.

LEO JUL 24–AUG 23

Movies are pretty straight­for­ward. They have he­roes and vil­lains, good guys and bad guys. But, un­for­tu­nately, real life isn’t quite so black and white. Re­cently, you’ve been feel­ing the need to jus­tify an old de­ci­sion. Rather than stand­ing up and say­ing, “I did what I felt was right”, you’re in­clined to say, “I was forced to say that”. But no one can make you do any­thing you don’t want to do. You – and only you – have con­trol over your ac­tions. Be brave enough to be the hero – stand up for what you be­lieve in. Pow­er­ful changes are pos­si­ble as Venus brings in­spi­ra­tion. Call 1902 222 500.

VIRGO AUG 24–SEP 23

Some peo­ple would give any­thing for a “nor­mal” life. But there’s no such thing as a “nor­mal” re­la­tion­ship! It’s the tiny de­tails, the pe­cu­liar­i­ties and the in-jokes that make each re­la­tion­ship so per­fect. Sure, these things are also likely to cause the oc­ca­sional prob­lem... But would you re­ally want rid of them? You’ve been won­der­ing, whether a re­la­tion­ship is “wrong”. I sup­pose that can only de­pend on how much you value the so­cial con­struct of “nor­mal”. If it makes you happy, how can it be wrong? It’s an ex­cit­ing week as Venus, the planet of love, changes signs. Call 1902 222 500.

LI­BRA SEP 24–OCT 23

In the heat of a new pas­sion, it’s easy to for­get that per­fec­tion doesn’t ex­ist. We’re over­whelmed by some­one who touches every part of our soul and holds forth an of­fer of com­pan­ion­ship. But sooner or later the rose-tinted glasses have to come off and we must view our ideal in the cold light of day. It’s of­ten a dis­ap­point­ing moment. But that shouldn’t mean the in­ten­sity of your emo­tion was with­out mean­ing or re­al­ity. Your eyes might just take a moment to be­come ad­justed to the new light. Give them the time they need. Pow­er­ful changes are pos­si­ble as Venus brings in­spi­ra­tion. Call 1902 222 500.

SCOR­PIO OCT 24–NOV 22

Many peo­ple fall into a re­la­tion­ship trap. They fall in love, not with the per­son be­fore them, but the per­son they be­lieve they can turn their part­ner into. It’s rare that we change any­one into any­thing they’re not. Even if it seems to work, such ef­forts are only ef­fec­tive with a will­ing and en­thu­si­as­tic ac­com­plice. We have far less con­trol over oth­ers than we as­sume. But we have far more over our­selves than we credit our­selves with. You’re an enig­matic, at­trac­tive char­ac­ter. But this week you can grow stronger. It’s an ex­cit­ing week as Venus, the planet of love, changes signs. Call 1902 222 500.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS NOV 23–DEC 21

I’ve only once been in­volved in a sur­prise party. But I re­mem­ber the fun – gig­gling as we all hid, while a laugh­ably im­plau­si­ble cover story some­how ush­ered an un­sus­pect­ing birth­day girl into the back of the pub. Yet for the sur­prise to have the most emo­tional im­pact, it’s of­ten best to con­vince the re­cip­i­ent that ev­ery­one has for­got­ten or sim­ply doesn’t care. Some­times that’s ex­actly how the world’s at­ti­tude to­wards you feels. But with­out want­ing to spoil the sur­prise, I sus­pect you’ll soon know that’s not the case. Pow­er­ful changes are pos­si­ble as Venus brings in­spi­ra­tion. Call 1902 222 500.

CAPRI­CORN DEC 22–JAN 20

Cheats never pros­per. Is that re­ally true? Ev­ery­where we look we see peo­ple bend­ing rules and get­ting away with it. Even those who are held to ac­count are rarely given more than a to­ken penalty. So should you leave the moral high ground and de­scend to their level? Aban­don your prin­ci­ples? No. Cheats may ac­crue fleet­ing ma­te­rial ben­e­fits but your re­wards are much greater and more sus­tained. Be­ing kind, open and hon­est will bring greater spir­i­tual ful­fil­ment than any­thing else. It’s an ex­cit­ing week as Venus, the planet of love, changes signs. Call 1902 222 500.

AQUAR­IUS JAN 21–FEB 19

Why are you apol­o­gis­ing? Don’t you agree with what you said? Oh, you do? Good! Then stand tall and proud be­hind it! Never be afraid to back your­self. Now, with Mars in your sign, it’s time to be your truest self. You’re filled with a pow­er­ful en­er­getic force for good – there’s so much you’d like to do, change, and ef­fect! While it’s im­por­tant to be sen­si­tive to the needs and ideas of those around you, you’ll find, this week, that the best re­sults come from be­ing brave enough to wear your heart on your sleeve. Pow­er­ful changes are pos­si­ble as Venus brings in­spi­ra­tion. Call 1902 222 500.

PISCES FEB 20–MAR 20

You get out of the world what you put into it – whether that’s love, gen­eros­ity or joy. Peo­ple sense your good­will and, in turn, go out of their way to re­turn it. The world is full of in­cred­i­ble peo­ple. Re­mem­ber that, be­cause it can be too easy to pre­emp­tively de­fend our­selves from the 0.01 per cent who don’t fit this de­scrip­tion. But, in clos­ing our­selves off from the world, we close our­selves to the joy and in­spi­ra­tion that oth­ers en­gen­der. See the best in peo­ple, this week; you’ll be amazed by the re­sults. It’s an ex­cit­ing week as Venus, the planet of love, changes signs. Call 1902 222 500.
