(March 21 - April 20)

If the world were go­ing to end to­mor­row, would you feel as if you’d had enough time? Most of us would prob­a­bly feel we’d wasted too much on pet­ti­ness and pass­ing wor­ries. Wel­come every minute as an op­por­tu­nity for pos­i­tiv­ity. Your re­la­tion­ships sus­tain you, even when they are a source of stress. Reach within for in­spi­ra­tion this week and your hope will be re­flected back through the peo­ple around you.

TAU­RUS (April 21 - May 21)

Some peo­ple have de­fences like me­dieval cas­tles. They’ve built so many walls, draw­bridges and moats that any at­tempt to reach them on an emo­tional level can feel like a bat­tle. We all have in­se­cu­ri­ties; some so well hid­den they take us by sur­prise when they ap­pear. To strengthen an em­pathic con­nec­tion in your life, you just need to demon­strate kind­ness and pa­tience.


(May 22 - June 22)

The heal­ing process is com­pli­cated. Even the most pos­i­tive medicine has its neg­a­tive side ef­fects, and surgery has a tem­po­rar­ily de­bil­i­tat­ing ef­fect on even the most ro­bust among us. But it’s a process by which the ends jus­tify the means. Some­times, even healthy sit­u­a­tions and re­la­tion­ships have an el­e­ment that seems dif­fi­cult or wrong for a while. Even if the role you find your­self in has its dif­fi­cul­ties, it’s worth stick­ing with. Be pa­tient with your­self (and your near­est and dear­est) this week.

CAN­CER (June 23 - July 23)

There seems to be a rea­son for ev­ery­thing. One par­tic­u­lar prob­lem has had you stumped for so long that you haven’t even been truly search­ing for a so­lu­tion. In­stead, you’ve reached the con­clu­sion that it’s bet­ter just to ‘make do’. Your op­tions might not be straight­for­ward, but that cer­tainly doesn’t mean that you should give up. Some­one sur­pris­ing has an ex­per­tise which will help you find a pos­i­tive way to pro­ceed.


(July 24 - Au­gust 23)

What would you do if you were to en­counter your zo­diac sym­bol, the lion, in the wild? (Don’t worry, the chances of you com­ing face to face with any man-eat­ing big cats this week are very slim.) Yet it’s al­ways good to have a strat­egy in place. Would you cower and shake or would you stand your ground, and look it in the eye, so that you es­tab­lished a sense of com­mand and re­spect? This is the way to act if any­one tries to take con­trol or un­der­mine you. It’s time to re­veal your con­fi­dent side . . . with sweet re­sults.

(Au­gust 24 - Sep­tem­ber 23)

There’s some­thing you need to know, yet you can’t seem to find the in­for­ma­tion you need. Is some­one with­hold­ing vi­tal facts? Or have they sim­ply for­got­ten to tell you? Are you sure this is some­thing that you re­ally need to know? This week, if you find lit­tle birds whis­per­ing in­for­ma­tion into your ear, take their news with a pinch of salt. It’s likely that any emerg­ing opin­ions will be dis­guis­ing some­one’s hid­den agenda. Lis­ten to their mes­sages, but fo­cus on your in­tu­ition. It’s finely honed this week.

LI­BRA (Sep­tem­ber 24 - Oc­to­ber 23)

Your vi­sion is cloudy. At least, where one par­tic­u­lar re­la­tion­ship is con­cerned you’re find­ing it dif­fi­cult to get a clear view. But for­tu­nately you’re aware of this bias. And it’s not as wor­ri­some as you think. The good news, this week, is that you don’t have to jump through any hoops to achieve a sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment. Your adap­ta­tions need to be emo­tional rather than phys­i­cal. Some­where in your re­cent past you can find a valu­able clue.


(Oc­to­ber 24 - Novem­ber 22)

You have a prob­lem. Ac­tu­ally, you have two prob­lems. Your sec­ond prob­lem is that the first has an an­swer that makes no sense. No mat­ter how you ap­proach it, you can’t seem to ar­rive at the so­lu­tion you’ve been told is cor­rect. Who told you this was the right an­swer? You’ve been try­ing to work back­wards to prove some­thing is right, but this ap­proach has clouded your vi­sion. If you can free your­self from pre­con­cep­tions you’ll know the right way to pro­ceed.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Novem­ber 23 - De­cem­ber 21)

We all ex­pe­ri­ence uncer­tainty. You’re no ex­cep­tion. Ex­cept, you can be a lit­tle more ef­fi­cient than the rest of us at tack­ling feel­ings of in­se­cu­rity. Some­times, in­stead of doubt­ing your­self, you chal­lenge your sense of in­ad­e­quacy. Then you trans­form your in­ner demons into help­ful mo­ti­va­tors. It’s a great way to pro­ceed as long as you’re cer­tain that you’re work­ing to­wards the right goal . . . and, of course, you are! You have no rea­son not to trust your­self .

CAPRI­CORN (De­cem­ber 22 - Jan­uary 20)

When the Greek hero Odysseus landed on the is­land of the lo­tus-eaters, he had to res­cue his crew from the so­porific ef­fects of the fruit. The past is a lit­tle like that is­land; lovely to visit, but you can’t overindulge in its of­fer­ings. You can gain in­sight from look­ing back, but suc­cess this week will be de­ter­mined by look­ing op­ti­misti­cally ahead.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan­uary 21-Fe­bru­ary 19)

The prophets of doom never seem to take a day off. Some­times, it can be easy to buy into their hype. Yet an­tic­i­pat­ing the worst is al­most like invit­ing it to hap­pen. As you move fur­ther into the new year, you find your­self on the re­ceiv­ing end of some­one’s con­cerns and fears. Try not to be weighed down by their wor­ries. The be­lief, con­fi­dence and hope that you need right now is avail­able. You just have to look in the right place to find it.

PISCES (Fe­bru­ary 20 - March 20)

Some­thing lovely is hap­pen­ing. Yet, you hes­i­tate to put your faith whole­heart­edly into it. You’re look­ing for the catch. But, sup­pos­ing there isn’t one? While some things are too good to be true, and some things only seem that way, how will you know which is which if you’re too doubt­ing to give the ex­pe­ri­ence a proper try? Whether what’s be­ing re­vealed is en­tirely good re­mains to be seen. But it presents an op­por­tu­nity. Con­sider the op­tions if you must, but the cos­mic in­di­ca­tion is that this is one worth tak­ing.
