This Week’s Stars

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL IN THE WHITSUNDAYS - by Joanne Made­line Moore

ARIES Mar 21 – Apr 19 With so many plan­ets pow­er­ing through your part­ner­ship zone, the buzz words for this week are co-op­er­a­tion, con­sul­ta­tion and com­pan­ion­ship. The so­lar eclipse in­di­cates a ma­jor turn­around to do with money mat­ters or an in­ti­mate re­la­tion­ship. It’s time to ini­ti­ate pos­i­tive changes, and i nspire oth­ers to do the same.

TAURUS Apr 20 – May 20 If you ac­cept things at face value (es­pe­cially at work) you may find later that you were way off the mark. Dou­ble- check all ap­point­ments, as mis­un­der­stand­ings are likely. Are you stuck in a re­la­tion­ship slump? Have your part­ner­ships be­come bor­ing? The so­lar eclipse and Venus urge you to re- con­nect with your near­est and dear­est in cre­ative new ways.

GEMINI May 21 – Jun 20 The week gets off to a pos­i­tive start with the Mer­cury / Jupiter sex­tile ( which f avour s business, ed­u­ca­tion, friend­ship, travel and con­ver­sa­tion). Re­mem­ber that Mer­cury is still in ret­ro­grade (un­til the week­end) so it won’t all be smooth sail­ing! Jupiter (planet of gen­eros­ity and abun­dance) en­cour­ages you to con­trib­ute more of your time to your lo­cal com­mu­nity.

CAN­CER Jun 21 – Jul 22 Casa Can­cer is the place to be but, with Mer­cury ret­ro­grad­ing through your do­mes­tic zone (un­til the week­end) there’s a back­log of chores to do around the house. So get your clean­ing and de- clut­ter­ing skates on! The so­lar eclipse prom­ises a pe­riod of nur­tur­ing old friend­ships and es­tab­lish­ing new ones. It’s a won­der­ful week­end to fo­cus on fam­ily and friends.

LEO Jul 23 – Aug 22 What you do and say will be closely scru­ti­nised by oth­ers, which suits you just fine. You don’t mind if peo­ple are clap­ping or crit­i­cis­ing – as long as you are be­ing no­ticed, you’re happy! Satur­day’s sun/ Venus con­junc­tion helps you pump up the charm at work and at home. Col­leagues or loved ones are look­ing to you to come up with some daz­zling cre­ative con­cepts.

VIRGO Aug 23 – Sep 22 Mer­cury is ret­ro­grade from Mon­day un­til Fri­day, so it’s a good time to re­vise and re­visit as you plough through pa­per­work and tie up loose ends. Mer­cury fi­nally moves for­wards on the week­end, so Sun­day is the day to re­lease the brakes and take ac­tion. Be in­spired by Pablo Pi­casso ( born Oc­to­ber 25, 1881): “One must act in paint­ing as in life, di­rectly.”

LIBRA Sep 23 – Oct 22 Keep an open mind as you ab­sorb new fi­nan­cial i nfor­ma­tion. Venus and t he so­lar eclipse prom­ise an in­crease in cash flow – but you may can­cel t hat out by in­dulging in a Li­bran shop­ping spree. With Mer­cury mov­ing for­wards i n your sign ( and the sun hook­ing up with Venus) it’s a won­der­ful week­end to con­verse, so­cialise, cre­ate and col­lab­o­rate.

SCORPIO Oct 23 – Nov 21 If you want to win some­one over, start a project, ap­ply for a job, pitch an idea or clinch a deal, then the week­end is the time to do it as the so­lar eclipse, Venus ( tran­sit­ing into your sign) and Mer­cury (turn­ing di­rect) all pro­pel you for­ward with stacks of mag­netic Scorpio style. And if you com­mu­ni­cate clearly and cre­atively with oth­ers then you’ll make spec­tac­u­lar progress.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21 Mighty Mars is charg­ing through your sign for one more week, so don’t hes­i­tate to grab lucky op­por­tu­ni­ties when they ap­pear. I f you set am­bi­tious goals, main­tain mo­ti­va­tion and are pas­sion­ately proac­tive, then your life will start to move in dy­namic new di­rec­tions. Your motto for the mo­ment is from Pablo Pi­casso: “Ac­tion is the foun­da­tional key to all suc­cess.”

CAPRICORN Dec 22 – Jan 19 When it comes to your am­bi­tious goals for the fu­ture, are you kid­ding your­self? With the so­lar eclipse and Venus both ac­ti­vat­ing your hopes and wishes zone, it’s time to re- imag­ine your Capricorn as­pi­ra­tions. I n or­der to sus­tain suc­cess, cre­ative pas­sions must be trans­formed into prac­ti­cal projects. Re­mem­ber there’s a fine line be­tween dreams and delu­sions.

AQUARIUS Jan 20 – Feb 18 The so­lar eclipse stim­u­lates your ca­reer zone, so strive to cre­ate work op­por­tu­ni­ties and max­imise your pro­fes­sional po­ten­tial. You may have to ditch a strug­gling project and start from scratch. Get­ting in touch with your con­sid­er­ate side sees you be­ing ex­tra co- oper­a­tive on Satur­day. If you ap­proach oth­ers with charm and tact then your ef­forts will be re­warded.

PISCES Feb 19 – Mar 20 It’s a great week to re­search a project or do some se­ri­ous re­vi­sion. Don’t skim over the sur­face – whether at home, work, school or univer­sity, the devil is def­i­nitely in the de­tail. Many rest­less Pis­ceans are keen to travel, and the best time to take a hol­i­day is from Oc­to­ber 27 through un­til Novem­ber 16. Start sav­ing, plan­ning, book­ing as soon as pos­si­ble!
