Aries (March 21 - April 20)
A friend or family member confronts you with a hard luck story, but it’s nothing you haven’t heard before. Gently suggest that they stand on their own financial feet. You’ll be amazed what tough love can do.
Taurus (April 21 - May 20)
With Mercury at a standstill until early December, projects may be hampered. For now, short-term projects are more likely to attract. If anything drags on, expect frustration.
Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
Mercury retrograde is asking you to slow down, which is probably welcome news. Life may be quieter than usual, but in no way are you robbed of your magnetism. It may not be an instant love, but deep friendship.
Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
If you haven’t already made changes, this week twists your arm to do so. Watch for an opportunity to stretch your imagination. Turn your dreams into what’s truly achievable and they’ll move closer to reality. The cosmos also keeps love relationships strong — a deep and intense fascination seems likely.
Leo (July 23 - August 23)
Should it suddenly seem like the fates have it in for you — it’s just that Mercury’s misbehaving. After December 2 all upended plans should manage to right themselves. In the meantime, take deep breaths and postpone important plans.
Virgo (August 24 - September 22)
A stalled Mercury causes havoc until December 2. Use this time to go through old files, tidy up correspondence, complete projects and tend to unfinished business. Computers, phones, and cars may experience slow-downs or failures.
Libra (September 23 - October 23)
In this delightful week, a special magnetism enables you to win people over. You could also turn the tables on the past. Though this doesn’t guarantee regaining something that was lost, something equally valuable may make up for it.
Scorpio (October 24 - November 22)
Scorpios are a law unto themselves. So when this week offers something different, you’re keen to give it a go. Other people’s schemes, no matter how tempting, are ignored as you become more determined to follow your own path.
Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21)
Pay outstanding bills, reorganise your cupboards and rid yourself of emotional baggage. Slow-moving Mercury is prompting you to tie up any loose ends — sooner rather than later.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)
Devote more time to you, Capricorn. It’s a busy week at work but remember to look after yourself as well. Being in the right place and making the right contacts works in your favour. Out with the old, in with the new.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)
It’s a powerhouse week. The catch? A total change may be required. If, until now, you’ve felt that all your efforts have been unappreciated, the tables start to turn. But if you want something done, do it yourself.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
No prizes for discovering that you don’t think or feel the same way others do. Most are used to this, so they should know better than to force your hand. Especially now — when despite a backward-moving Mercury — you’re more inspired than ever. Go on, Pisces — it’s time to live the dream.
