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.
