Mar 20 – Apr 18

While you can’t avoid making plans, ensure they’re flexible. The powerful aspect between bountiful Jupiter and the unpredictable Uranus, which is positioned in Aries, on Thursday the 28th, triggers breakthroughs in existing arrangements and, just as much, surprise developments in close alliances. Knowing that, ensure plans are flexible and explore every idea or offer that comes your way.   


Apr 19 – May 19

For ages there’s been talk of changes in elements of your daily life or, perhaps, work. Or both. While you realise they’d be beneficial, you dread the way they’d disrupt your routine. However, they’re happening, and within days. Tempting as it is to battle these, deep down you know they’re in your best interests. That being the case, forget about those battles and go for it. 


May 20 – Jun 20

Recent events have forced you to focus on domestic or family matters and, possibly, the balance between these and your activities out in the world. Sudden developments mean those ideas and discussions must turn into action. Because these are triggered by Thursday’s link between Jupiter and inventive Uranus, what arises is as unexpected as it is thrilling..


Jun 21 – Jul 21

Talk about rethinking your home or working life isn’t new. However, the extent and swiftness of this week’s events could still seem overwhelming. While the pace will be rapid and elements of arrangements a surprise, the planetary setup is superb, which means that even what’s most unexpected is likely to turn out brilliantly. However, if you don’t go for it, you’ll never know just how well. 


Jul 22 – Aug 21

It’s rare you allow yourself to get worked up about mere ideas. But this week’s discussions, events or changes in your own views could lead to serious clashes. Your personal views will be strong, so much that overlooking issues won’t be easy. Still, try to keep your Leo ego reined in and focus on asking questions. What you learn won’t just be interesting, it could be life-changing. 



Aug 22 – Sept 21

On occasion, situations demand you put you and your interests first. In the past this has proved surprisingly difficult. However, with both your ruler Mercury and the planet of ego, Mars, actually in Virgo, you’ll already have had thrilling ideas in mind. Now, suddenly, they could become reality. Learn as much as you can, but if in doubt, say yes first and ask questions later.  


Sept 22 – Oct 22

As a Libra, your priority is to create and sustain lasting relationships. Yet at the moment there’s pressure to make worrying changes. Because this is triggered by the link between Jupiter, planet of growth and good fortune, which is in Libra, and Uranus, even unexpected or unsettling events are about growth. That being the case, at least explore what arises. You’ll never regret it.   


Oct 23 – Nov 21

While it’s true, you tend to battle changes, especially if they’re unexpected, the key is understanding what’s involved. However, with things moving so swiftly and, possibly, taking you into unfamiliar territory, you’re hesitant. Don’t be as early October’s spectacular links between Venus, Mars and your ruler Pluto, suggest the more you learn about these, the more excited you’ll be.    


Nov 22 – Dec 20

You benefit from your easygoing and inquisitive nature and, equally, the accompanying enthusiasm makes you popular with others. Yet both you and those around you could be hesitant, if not react with suspicion to events, ideas or offers that are thrilling but also overwhelming. They could even threaten to take away your prized free will. Still, if your instincts are to say ‘yes’, they’re right.


Dec 21 – Jan 18

Those who leap into changes, in anything from their daily routine to their work or lifestyle, fascinate you. Yes, you may have sudden passions, for people or projects. But life-changing commitments are another matter. However, certain events, offers or even ideas lead to making decisions so suddenly you can’t believe it’s you. Yet, judging by fortunate Jupiter’s link to Uranus, it’s unlikely you’ll regret it. 

Jan 19 – Feb 17

Doing things for others? Great. However, the reverse is another matter, because few understand what you’d really like, personally, in terms of favours or even your taste or style. Yet judging by Thursday’s rare, powerful and positive link between Jupiter and your ruler Uranus, even what is least expected will be what’s needed. As you’ll soon realise, since you won’t always have a choice.   


Feb 18 – Mar 19

The time has come to reorganise your life. While this involves others, you must put your interests and yourself first, and without compromising because you fear worrying or upsetting others. Only when they fully understand your position and needs, can they lend a hand, which is this week’s major theme. And, better yet, the more others do for you, the more they’ll benefit.
