Saturn has been sitting almost perfectly still, looking over proceedings with a critical eye. Today it begins its annual move backwards through the skies. As the great cosmic teacher returns to pastures old, it will keep us grounded and remind us of the value of keeping focused on life’s gifts rather than life’s fancies. As bright and shiny as much appears to be following the sun and moon’s convergence with Uranus, it’s worth shoring up foundations as we prepare to embark on a time of inner growth.
ARIES MAR 21–APR 20
They say “Stick to what you know”, and there’s no doubt that change is challenging… hence the expressions that encourage us to stick with the familiar. For you, though, there’s no longer any reason to avoid looking at what’s not right and choosing another way to proceed. You simply can’t carry on living your life following the same principles when they’re so restrictive and holding you back. When something is clearly not working, you have to change. Being open to the possibility means that it can begin. For your latest inspiring guide to the week ahead, call 1902 222 500.
TAURUS APR 21 – MAY 21
Deep down we’re all secret philosophers who think that everything happens for a reason. When we don’t understand what that reason could be, we either blame someone, or something, or ourselves or we berate ourselves for our lack of insight. We think that if we try harder we’ll understand why what’s happening is happening. So what have you done to deserve the good things that are due to come your way today? Could they just be happening because the cosmos is benevolent? Yes they could. The sky is positively charged with astrological promise. Call 1902 222 500.
GEMINI MAY 22–JUN 22
For too long now you’ve been held back by invisible restrictions. It has been difficult for you to know where your limits lie. Limits that forced you to adapt and lower your expectations. Since you’ve set simpler objectives for yourself you’ve made unexceptional gains when you could be attaining so much more. Your ruler’s retrograde motion gave you a chance to understand what the problem is. Now, you can begin to find a way to negotiate your way past this barrier and move into clearer, brighter territory.

CANCER JUN 23–JUL 23
Is there something you need to be worried about? Or anyone who you ought to feel daunted by? They say that rules are made to be broken, and they can certainly be bent in the right situations. But your conscience is not so easy to ignore. As Saturn, the great teacher, begins to move backwards, you’re becoming aware of a principle that you need to enforce. As long as you’re honouring your own moral standards now, you’ll be able to move forward towards a truly delightful new freedom. The sky is positively charged with astrological promise. Call 1902 222 500.
LEO JUL 24–AUG 23
How can we learn from the past if we push it to the back of our minds? It’s not easy to find the balance between forgetting past difficulties and focusing on them so much that we’re unable to move on. As Saturn begins to travel backwards, it brings an opportunity to overcome unhelpful, entrenched behaviour. You have a chance to learn from your past in a way that will benefit you. All you have to do is rethink an old way of thinking. Nourish your belief in the future, and you’ll see it begin to unfold. For your latest inspiring guide to the week ahead, call 1902 222 500.
VIRGO AUG 24–SEP 23
Beneath calm exteriors we all swing between extremes. One minute we feel calm, the next we’re stressed. We might be full of humility only to be overwhelmed by self-importance. The challenge, is to find a balance so that we can somehow be complicated yet naive, courageous yet nervous, malleable yet strong. It’s not an easy goal to aspire to, but when we try we’re enriched both internally and outwardly. Be kind to yourself. The cosmos is encouraging you to continue on your path. The sky is positively charged with astrological promise. Call 1902 222 500.
LIBRA SEP 24–OCT 23
How can you make a decision when it seems as if there’s a lot to lose no matter what you decide? Suppose you think about what you have to learn? Because that’s the gain you’ll make providing that you conduct yourself with your usual sincerity and honesty. Things are going to work out fine. Even the events that you’re regretting will eventually be seen in a better light so that you can see why they needed to happen and what gifts they have brought. If you look for an opening, you’ll find one. For your latest inspiring guide to the week ahead, call 1902 222 500.
SCORPIO OCT 24–NOV 22
The secret to success is elusive. It is not guaranteed by hard work – there are too many people slogging away to dispel that myth. Belief doesn’t seem to be the solution either. Nor does luck. If you don’t have good judgment you could have any combination of those qualities and still not be successful. An amalgamation of wisdom, insight and objectivity are being inspired by Saturn’s change of direction. As long as they’re based in honourable and ethical reasoning, your efforts will be worthwhile. The sky is positively charged with astrological promise. Call 1902 222 500.
SAGITTARIUS NOV 23–DEC 21
When the sky brings you a present it doesn’t provide a receipt. So even if we think we’ve got plenty of what’s being offered, or we don’t quite like the style of what we’re unwrapping, we simply have to find a way to assimilate it into our lives. If what you’re now receiving doesn’t seem to fit your needs, keep the faith. There’s a reason why the cosmos sees this as a gift rather than a burden. It takes time to understand the value of something new. With less doubt and more imagination all will be revealed. For your latest inspiring guide to the week ahead, call 1902 222 500.
CAPRICORN DEC 22–JAN 20
I know you don’t like to be in the spotlight but can you hear the applause? You need to move to centre stage and take a bow. You deserve recognition for your achievements. Sorry, you won’t come onto the stage? Are you worried that the cheers might turn to criticism? You don’t think you’ve done enough to be worthy of appreciation? Now that your ruler has changed direction it’s time to stop judging yourself so harshly. You’ve done well. Accept the gratitude and take a break. You’ve earned this. The sky is positively charged with astrological promise. Call 1902 222 500.
AQUARIUS JAN 21–FEB 19
With your traditional ruler, Saturn, turning retrograde, it’s a little bit as if you’re waiting on the station for a connecting train. You’ve got just the right amount of time to stretch your legs, buy yourself a coffee and catch up on your emails before it pulls into the platform and you embark on the next stage of your journey. Of course, while you’re waiting there are a plethora of options. You can take any number of trains to other destinations. But it seems right to wait. Follow your plans and your heart.

PISCES FEB 20–MAR 20
Back in the 1990s, the British government’s slogan was, “education, education, education”. Your own approach now needs to be similarly focused. But, although there is always more to learn, the more appropriate mantra for you is, “communication, communication, communication”. Mercury has turned direct and Venus, in the part of the sky representing information, is opposite your ruler Jupiter. With a few simple words you can open minds and gain support. And with a listening heart you’ll gain even more. The sky is positively charged with astrological promise. Call 1902 222 500.
