Your Stars By Linda Shaw



Mar 21 - April 19

We’ve got transforma­tion; death and rebirth; new beginnings. The trick is to understand that we need to let go of the old to make space for the new. That’s the thing we love to procrastin­ate about. Even so, it’ll be difficult for you to make a mess of this week. The universe wants your life to work. Decide what you want and trust yourself.


Apr 20 - May 20

You’re uncomforta­ble around the seemingly unstoppabl­e pace of change and distressed by the blizzard of talks, meetings and endless ludicrous ideas that are filling your world. But if you can stay sane and detached, you’ll find you’ve accumulate­d a tremendous amount. Not just money, either. Lots of other useful stuff too. Make the most. Smile at everyone.


May 21 - June 20

Don’t let anyone tell you the world’s not a wonderful place. For as you’re rapidly discoverin­g, reality is largely about perception. And right now, your enthusiasm is vibrant enough to be contagious. And yes, there’s a possibilit­y your energy levels are taking a temporary dip, but that has more to do with your emotional needs than your physical health. Wait a while. Change is coming.


June 21 - Jul 22

Those powerful friends could come in handy now. Not that you’re being encouraged to abuse your position. But if you’re willing to show your vulnerabil­ities, and actually ask for help, you’ll be amazed at the offers. If you insist on that “I don’t need help from anyone” act, you’ll probably end up doing it all yourself. But the planets would rather you let someone into your heart.


Jul 23 - Aug 22

Being too idealistic? The only problem with that is it always leads to disappoint­ment. Still, enjoy the moment while you can. And then look out for some real encounters of the passionate variety. If you’re already taken, try creating some romance at home. Think abundance. Fascinatin­g opportunit­ies are on the way. Your job is stay sane until you’ve figured out all the angles.


Aug 23 - Sep 22

A new relationsh­ip or a different look at an old one is calling. And with your mood as it is, anyone ambling in your direction with romantic intentions had better plan strategies in advance. For a change, you know precisely what you want and you’re in no mood for games. One thing. Inspect the eyes more carefully than the wallet. Ask yourself what you’re willing to give.


Sep 23 - Oct 22

This is your week for serenity and balance. So if you haven’t left home in a month, grab your sneakers and start running. And if you’ve spent the past fortnight fixing everyone else’s life, tell them you’ve just resigned your post. Get the picture? Of course, if you feel lost with no-one to rearrange, think of this as a slow transition. To a new you. The planets are starting with your love life.


Oct 23 - Nov 21

Secret affairs and fantasies are keeping you up at night. What you’re probably after is an escape rather than an escapade. Still, enjoy it for what it is because you’ll be working harder than usual with relatively little recognitio­n. You might consider taking a new business partner instead. Before you do that, think of something that will make you happy. And give yourself a special treat.

SAGITTARIU­S Nov 22 - Dec 21

You’re ready to take on the revolution­ary and incorporat­e new experience­s into your thought patterns. This is a good time to take up the study of something demanding — or better still, teach it. You’ll discover a new enthusiasm for integratin­g what works with what doesn’t and creating something new. Leave the love life where it is for the moment. Later for that.

CAPRICORN Dec 22 - Jan 20

It’s all systems go. With your sights on career and money, a lucrative new source is making itself known. Remember to finish what you’re doing first and wait for firm offers. In writing. And pay no attention to the grumps who tell you the market’s gone to pot. Intuition is your strongest weapon. Trust yourself to make the best use of your talents. Here’s your chance to take the prize.


Jan 20 - Feb 18

Trust is not so much about what you say as what you do, as you’re discoverin­g.

And slowly the pretty speeches are developing a hollow echo. Your test for the week: keep every promise and refrain from making promises you have no hope of keeping. You must arrive on time, and stick to the plan. You must listen to what’s being said. You must be willing to learn and grow.


Feb 19 - Mar 20

Arguing without listening to the response may be satisfying for the ego, but it doesn’t do much for the relationsh­ip. For now, pay attention to whatever’s being said.

And even if you don’t grasp the point up front, prepare to give the benefit of the doubt before jumping down any throats. There’s nothing to be lost here but love. This is one of those weeks when real magic is possible.
