A spectacular solar eclipse is visible for some on Friday. It is not necessary to witness such a celestial spectacle to benefit from it. We will all, soon, experience a moment of revelation as scales fall from our eyes and veils are raised in our subconscious minds, enabling us to understand situations that may have previously caused us stress. If you do happen to live in a part of the world from which the eclipse is visible, remember not to look at it! The only light that any of us want to be blinded by is the inner light!
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Not until 2073 will Uranus form another right angle to Pluto. So the one that is happening this week, is significant and meaningful, not least because much of the astrological action is taking place from within your zodiac sign. Think of yourself as a human alarm clock, capable of waking other people up to facts that they need to face. But see yourself also as someone who can soothe many a furrowed brow. You can also help people to see why some of their worst fears are unfounded. Doing all that will help you too.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
Some chairs are poorly designed. No matter how we try to sit on them, we can’t get comfortable. The more we wriggle, the worse it gets. Some situations are similarly inhospitable. How much more effort must you make, this week, to adapt and adjust. Isn’t it time to think, instead, about a more radical change of circumstance? But even that isn’t going to be easy. Don’t deny or ignore your strongest feeling now. Just wait patiently for the right opportunity to be decisive and make a difference. That is coming up sooner than you think.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
Sorry? Say that again? You hope to do what this week? Then, what precisely happened last week? Are you sure? Or are you just saying all this because it is what you are saying to yourself and you suspect that if you just keep saying it, it will sound more credible? They say that a lie, if repeated often enough, becomes a kind of truth. I’m not suggesting that you are being deliberately deceptive. But beware, this week, of trying so hard to convince yourself of something that you can no longer recognise a reality.
CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
Why do so many different cultures place such an emphasis on the need for a day of rest? Isn’t it strangely counter-intuitive to undergo a forced phase of time out or time off, when we just want to keep pushing away each day towards the same objective? Well, stop and think about your current ongoing commitment to a plan, project or arrangement. Aren’t you getting a little snow blind? Might not a break bring precious perspective that, in turn, might hasten success? This week, if you want to rise up, ease up.
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Younger readers may be surprised to learn that back in the day before electronic games, people used to do jigsaws. There would be a picture, mounted on board, carved into small pieces and jumbled up. They would have to sort them out and put them in order. It gave amusement but posed the question, ‘If all you want is the picture, why break it to begin with?’ But then, don’t we all do that at times? This week, you are reconstructing something that was once deliberately dismantled. It will be a positive process.
VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
Can you hear those bells? They are tinkling faintly to remind you that fairies are abroad in your world this week. Fluttering and floating all around, these invisible ethereal beings await any opportunity to assist you. Got a problem you want to solve? A fear you hope to conquer? A conflict you would like to clear up? Snap your fingers, make a wish and… Well, perhaps it won’t be quite that simple – but, in principle at least, there is a supportive celestial climate and you would be wise to nurture some positive expectation.
LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
Are you holding this page upside down? Are the words making no sense? Or does everything seem normal? What if I told you that all the characters actually have been inverted? That might at least be in line with all the other strange developments around you lately. You have noticed those, haven’t you? In much the same way as I’m sure you can now see through my pretence of using distorted lettering, you may yet find that your determination to clear up another source of confusion brings more success than you expect. Believe in your own brightest beliefs.
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
This isn’t necessarily the week when the whole of your life changes forever. It may even be the week when things finally stop changing quite so much, quite so chaotically. Instead, a sense of enlightened understanding may rise like a phoenix from the ashes of some explosive and extensive conflicts. A series of confusing psychological collisions has left you feeling defensive and apprehensive about what your future may hold. As Uranus now completes its seventh square to Pluto, you regain lost confidence and start to see a clear path from here to a happier tomorrow.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
Just sign here please. Agree that you have read and accepted all the terms and conditions. What are these? Why ask? You don’t read the t’s & c’s every time you sign up to a website do you? And as for what precisely it is that life is asking you to sign up to now? Well, when do we really ever understand exactly what we are letting ourselves in for when we make a commitment about anything, to anyone? A hunch is all you have to go on this week. Yet it is a hunch that may yet cause you to stand straight and tall.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
‘Oh soldier, soldier will you marry me with your musket pipe and drum?’ You may or may not know this old folk song. It is a salutary tale for all who ever let romanticism overwhelm common sense. The soldier requires a growing list of gifts from his would-be bride and once she has supplied his every need, he still finds a reason to let her down. Now I’m not saying that anything so sad is due to happen in your world now, but you should be wary of your own uncharacteristic vulnerability now. Don’t get too soft or too soppy.

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
This is the last time I shall tell you about the importance of a celestial right angle now being formed between your ruler and Pluto. It will be 60 years or so before the next one happens. And will it be 60 years or so before you forget all the challenges you have faced and the changes you have been through over the past few years? It may. But it may also be much sooner than that, before you begin to see just how valuable so many of these experiences have been. Greater strength and stability awaits you soon.
PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
So, are we agreed? This week, you will write the forecast and I will just read it as if I were you. Go on then, what kind of a week are you going to have? What should you be wary of? What can you confidently, happily, look forward to? You don’t really need to be an astrologer this week, to foresee a key element of your own destiny. You just have to have faith in your own ability to make what you want to happen, happen. If you genuinely believe that it is possible and fair, you will get it. And I like that outlook as much as you do.
