This week begins with the year’s second full moon in Aries. For all born under the sign of the ram, there’s a rare second chance coming up – after it seemed all choices had already been made. And for the rest of us? A similar sense of deja vu. We have been, once before, somewhere like where we are now. We can learn from past errors, draw on the confidence that only experience can bring, and start trying once more to put right something that seems to have gone wrong. If effort is sincere, the likelihood of success is high.
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
Are you getting old? Perish the thought! You are surely looking younger and more lovely with each passing day. But you are definitely getting more experienced. You are recognising a pattern you have seen before. You are no longer worried about something in the way you might once have been. Nor are you allowing someone to intimidate you in the way they used to do. Trust your better judgement this week and don’t get caught up in a silly fuss over nothing. All will be fine if you trust what you know, stay true to what you believe in and remain calm, buoyed up by your faith in what has to be right.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
What should we be most worried about? Climate change? Recession? War? There’s always some threat hanging over the world, just as there’s always some potential problem in our personal lives. I’m not suggesting that we can just shrug any of this off. We’ve got to wise up, get real, face issues and make smart moves. But we don’t have to panic and we certainly shouldn’t feel there’s no point in even trying to make things OK because it will never happen. If you’re positive, you can make amazing changes come about. Be inspired, not afraid. Look for reasons to help create positive change, not for reasons to worry.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
Look at your ankle. Do you see a chain? Does it lead to a big heavy ball? Maybe it’s not the end of your leg you need to look at. Perhaps it’s in your mind that the great weight is slowing you down. Even so, coming events should wipe away a problem from the past and make it possible to proceed in a spirit of freedom. Just be aware, though, that sometimes, when we have been set free from a burden, we don’t realise at first that this has happened. We continue to stoop or to step nervously, fearful of our fragile circumstances. But soon you’ll see how much better things have become and you’ll feel much happier.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
Are you asking for too much? Are your hopes and aspirations unrealistic? Probably not. Change may not come as quickly as you might like it to, but it will come soon enough. Meanwhile, it is better to reach for the moon and only attain the top of a tree, than to strive for the treetop and end up getting only a few inches off the ground. One of your more important objectives may not be as elusive as it currently seems. Be open-minded this week and be ambitious too. As long as you’re also sensitive, kind, sharing and forgiving… then even if you don’t end up with all you are asking for, you’ll get all that you need.
PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
Do you know how much power you have? Are you aware of your own strength? Do you think someone else is calling the shots – or that you are merely a passenger in the car of destiny? You are the driver. The steering wheel is in your hands – and yes, it really is connected to the wheels! You know what you need now? A map! Ask questions. Find out where you are and what may be available to you. Then, start making confident choices. The roads ahead are clear. The heavens are granting you the chance to make choices and successfully implement decisions. You must just strive to make the wisest possible moves.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Our friends are often quite a lot like us. Sometimes, we find this pleasing. Sometimes, irritating. Either way, it’s our own fault! Consciously (or unconsciously) we choose to develop those social bonds. Families are another matter. They are full of people who have inherited similar traits and thus remind each other of their own best (and worst) tendencies. There is no getting away from a challenging situation now. Mars and Venus, though, suggest an easy way to learn to live with it. Be kind and forgiving. Your love life is due to improve. Your finances may pick up too. You can afford to be generous!
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
Recent events have stretched your patience. To cope, you have had to develop new inner resources – more tolerance, more wisdom, more restraint, more strength and more adaptability. And now? Well, effectively, a battle has been won. A milestone has been passed. A challenge that once seemed impossible now just seems a bit tricky. But you cannot return to normal. For, once we have been mentally and emotionally stretched, we are “bigger” in heart and spirit than ever before. You are creating, now, a “new normality” and soon you’ll begin to feel very comfortable within (and highly protected by) it.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
It is often surprisingly easy to disempower someone without meaning to. When, for example, we stop a loved one from learning through their own experience. Or when we demonstrate our superior skills in some area of activity in which someone else is only starting out. The trouble is, when we know we are right, it is very hard to sit quietly and watch someone else get it wrong. Hard it may be, but sometimes, to make a point, it is essential. I think you know why I am saying this now. This week, what matters is not so much what you already know as what someone else now sorely needs to find out for themselves.
CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
“Least said, soonest mended.” So the old saying goes. For centuries, people have been using this phrase as a justification for avoiding difficult issues and maintaining a state of deep psychological denial. There are, of course, some things that it is genuinely pointless to discuss. You, for example, can think of several topics that you may as well not bother wasting your precious time and energy on this week. One matter, though, really does deserve as much dialogue and discussion as it can possibly be given. The motto you need to keep in mind now is probably “most said, quickest benefited.”
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
They say, “there’s no smoke without fire.” Haven’t they ever heard of a dry-ice machine? The world is full of surprises. We think we know what we’re dealing with – but often, we don’t. Whilst this means we should be wary of unfamiliar factors, it means we must be careful, too, when assuming that we know exactly what we are up against. You are now pessimistic about a proposition. It reminds you of an enterprise that has had disappointing results in the past. That resemblance, though, is misleading and superficial. What’s really going on is different. You are entitled to be optimistic and if you don’t yet feel that way, you will soon.
VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
Jugglers flip balls or batons from hand to hand. When their concentration slips, everything stops. You, though, are a plates-on poles person. You set one spinning, then another, then another. Provided you get things straight at the start, you can commence a process that takes care of itself for a fair while. But you have to keep watching for signs of wobbliness. And sometimes, two or more plates go shaky at once. This week, you have to decide which to fix first. It’s possible one may have to drop but as long as you are clear about the situations and arrangements you most want to protect, all will be fine.
LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
Imagine a world without risk, drama, mischief or naughtiness – a straight, sober society in which everyone always behaves impeccably. Perhaps somewhere in this vast universe, such a place exists. We, here on Planet Earth, live differently. We like a little order with our chaos – but we know that, if we have too much, our existence will lose colour, adventure and excitement. Are you now pursuing something frivolous and indulgent or something crucial and essential? That rather depends on how you look at it! You need, this week, the levity, joy and adventure that only something a little less than sensible can supply!
