Your stars for the week with Penny Thornton
aries 21 Mar – 20 Apr
This is a good time for talking to the money people and getting your accounts in order. Early in May there will be something of a financial reckoning and attentions paid to all things fiscal now can only help make that a positive experience.
taurus 21 Apr – 21 May
The pressure is off and there will be fewer upsets to deal with. Nonetheless, with more than one planet on a retrograde roll, there is still a risk of delays and cancellations, whether we’re talking transport and travel or projects and plans.
GEMINI 22 May – 22 Jun
Affairs of the heart may prove dispiriting at this time and a tactical withdrawal could be the answer; by contrast, you could be ready to name the day. Knowing what you want is half the battle, and these stars certainly bring clarity.
cancer 23 Jun – 23 Jul
Pluto’s journey through the area of love and relating is long and winding, but especially if you have a birthday near 9 July this ‘planet’ is exerting a profound influence on your life in 2017. And this week could reveal why.
Leo 24 Jul – 23 Aug
It is human nature to want to go to ground when we’ve been hurt, but this is entirely the wrong strategy. Sharpen up your image, reboot your self-esteem and use these influences to get back on top where you belong.
VIRGO 24 Aug – 23 Sep
If a project or relationship is struggling you may well feel there is no choice other than to abandon it. Hold your horses. With a clutch of planets in retrograde there may still be plenty of water to flow under that proverbial bridge.
LIBRA 24 Sep – 23 Oct
It could be that a little distance and perspective will enable you to see a situation in a better light, or by finding a fresh outlet for your energies and passions you will cease to need what appears to be lost.
scorpio 24 Oct – 22 Nov
With Mercury currently on a backwards roll, if you need to mend a broken fence or someone from the past is on your mind, reach out before you lose the momentum. It’s never too soon to mount a charm offensive, never too late to say sorry.
sagittarius 23 Nov – 21 Dec
The right mindset will prove crucial to your success, so first thing Monday, put yourself in reality mode and don’t expect a free lunch from anyone. With determination and patience, you can overcome any obstacle.
capricorn 22 Dec – 20 Jan
It is a plus to discover a glitch before it morphs into a catastrophe and you are far better without people who cannot give their full commitment to you. And the same is true in reverse: face the music.
aquarius 21 Jan – 19 Feb
Fantasy has no place in your life at the moment. If someone is feeding you vagaries and making excuses, insist on answers. And vice versa: if other people are pressing you for information, be honest.
pisces 20 Feb – 20 Mar
If you are experiencing doubts about the future of a relationship or an enterprise, don’t be afraid to voice your concerns. Unspoken fears are like monsters in the dark: they need bringing into the light and cutting down to size.
