August 2017 Horoscopes

Aries
21st March – 20th April
There are two eclipses this month, indicating long-term trends and cycles underway. Your ruler Mars is at the center of the eclipse pattern, so for you there’s lots of action and activity. The full moon lunar eclipse (7th) is about things coming to a head related to friendships, groups and gatherings. It’s also about keeping your mind and heart open to your hopes, dreams and future vision. The new moon solar eclipse (21st) is about fresh new beginnings related to creativity, love-life, fun and entertainment. It’s a very positive and empowering eclipse pattern, which means it’s easier to sync up with the benefits and rewards of your situation, now and in future.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
Change is in the air, indicated by two eclipses during August. Events around eclipse time often have long-term significance and meaning, and these are no exception. The full moon lunar eclipse (7th) is about things coming to a head or coming full circle, regarding plans, aims and ambitions (especially linked to career). Perhaps events from around February time are relevant somehow. The new moon solar eclipse (21st) highlights home and family matters, and speaks of new beginnings now or in the coming months, for this area of your life. The eclipse picture is strong and positive, despite indicating a few challenges on the way (first week and midmonth), so there’s plenty in store to look forward to.

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
August is deeply transforming for love-life, creativity, and communication. It’s time to let go and trust what takes you more deeply into your heart (especially first week, also 12th, 15th, 17th, 27th). Mercury retrogrades (appears to move backwards) from 13th, indicating a different perspective is required, especially related to home and family matters. It’s all reflected in the message of two important eclipses this month, which are about long-term change. The faith-filled full moon eclipse on 7th is about direction and purpose. Maybe there are talks about where things are going. Then the positive and upbeat new moon eclipse (21st) is about important new beginnings, now and in months to come, especially for communication and information.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
August has two eclipses, which is always big news for you, being ruled by the moon. Eclipses are about events with long-term impact for plans and progress, and the full moon lunar eclipse (7th) spotlights your chart of deep healing. Events come to a head where trust has been an issue, and regarding how much you want to share with others (you can be an iceberg when it suits, with so much hidden under the surface). The new moon solar eclipse (21st) is like the next step, with a message of new beginnings in coming months linked to income, resources, self-worth and self-esteem. What happened during February might have relevance to all this somehow too.

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
There are two fabulous eclipses in August, both involving your sign in a big way. Eclipses indicate changes are afoot, and events around their dates tend to have long-term impact. The full moon eclipse (7th) is about certain situations coming to a head or moving and transforming after a stalemate. Events from February might be relevant somehow, and relationships, partnerships, contracts and agreements are the focus. The solar new moon eclipse in your sign on 21st is the astro event of the year for you, indicating an important new life chapter is underway. A new you is emerging; more steady, stable, bold, and productive than ever. Relationships, romance, travel and education are all in the spotlight from now.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
Logical Mercury is in your sign, so you’re on a mission to get things sorted; in your own mind at least. Mercury meets foggy Neptune midmonth, which can cloud some issues; then is retrograde (appearing to move backwards) from 13th, indicating a change of mind or direction. There are two eclipses with a message of long-term change: the full moon eclipse (7th) is also about getting things sorted, especially at work or with health and fitness. The new moon solar eclipse (21st) happens in the most spiritual angle of your chart and indicates new clarity and spiritual awakening. It means intuitive ideas often seem illogical or irrational, yet notice how perfectly the pieces fit the bigger picture.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
There’s a cleansing and clearing process happening first week of August (also midmonth and 24th), so trust the process instead of overreacting or bottle things up. There are also two extremely positive eclipses with impact for months, even years to come. The full moon lunar eclipse (7th) spotlights creative projects and matters of the heart, where things seem ready to come to fruition or full circle. On the 21st, the new moon solar eclipse is about new beginnings involving friends, groups, teams and gatherings. It’s also about becoming more aware of your current vision for the future, and how the universe will support your hopes, dreams and wishes. This eclipse is about dreams coming true, more than ever before.


Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
There are two eclipses during August. The lunar eclipse on the 7th indicates things coming to head in certain situations right now, especially regarding home and family matters. What happened around February time might be relevant this month too. Events around eclipses often have long-term significance and coincide with important changes, and the new moon eclipse on the 21st speaks of new beginnings, new plans, new goals and ambitions emerging in coming months, particularly linked to career, but any area where you’ve been wanting recognition and the chance to shine. It’s not always plain sailing this month (4th, 9th, 13th, 15th, 25th) but the eclipse picture still indicates positivity reigns supreme.


Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
August starts with a transformational first week for finances, friendships and your connections with groups, teams and gatherings. The full moon eclipse (7th) has long-term impact, and is highlighting communication, travel and education (The phrase ‘when the student is ready, the teacher appears’ seems to fit). Midmonth, plans or partners might be temporarily backtracking (not stalling), but don’t assume the worst. Meanwhile, you’re feeling more clear, creative, disciplined and productive than you have in months (especially from 25th, when even extra responsibility feels like an adventure). The theme of the powerful new moon eclipse on the 21st is that the joy is in your journey right now, but the destination looks promising too.

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
Demands of first week in August might bring out your inner control freak and your intensely ambitious side. But rise above power struggles because you have true transformation and renewal happening (especially in career). There are two important eclipses this month, indicating long-term change and developments. The full moon lunar eclipse (7th) focuses on finances, resources, and self-worth (including self-esteem), and events have a sense of completion and culmination about them. The new moon solar eclipse (21st) is about holding your nerve with what’s unknown or uncertain, particularly regarding shared resources (easier from 25th). It’s a positive, future-focused eclipse, despite any challenges. It’s about real stability, firm foundations, and true freedom of spirit.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
There are two important eclipses this month, the first is a full moon eclipse in your sign on the 7th, indicating that a significant turnaround, change of direction or change of approach is happening within you regarding some ongoing situations. Relationships, contracts and agreements are relevant to this all month, especially during the new moon eclipse on 21st, when it’s a busy, bold, proactive and productive time for new beginnings. There are twists and turns this month, as well as hidden dynamics and agendas that are playing out or sometimes acted out (4th, 13th, 15th, 17th, 25th), but in general the eclipses show stability via change, and the promise of a future you can believe in.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March

There are two eclipses during August, and events at eclipse time often have long-term impact. The full moon lunar eclipse (7th) takes place in the most spiritual part of your chart. Events might draw your attention, through signs, symbols or synchronicity, which gets you thinking and seeking more from your spiritual path (And perhaps there’s a link to events back in February somehow?). The new moon solar eclipse (21st) is about the day to day running of your life, your working day, schedules and appointments; it’s also health, fitness and wellbeing. It means new beginnings are manifesting. The planets are in a positive pattern, which means this part of your life will reflect that too.

July 2017 Horoscopes

Aries
21st March – 20th April
There’s a full moon of renewal and change on the 9th, which brings earlier events to a head somehow (perhaps linked to career or home?), so rise above power struggles to transform and transmute conflict. Midmonth is busy, especially for communication and relationship, but July really kicks into gear after 20th, when Mars indicates it’s all systems go for creativity, romance, fun and entertainment; especially from 23rd when Mars links to the new moon in a truly sparkling, if unexpected way, indicating new beginnings. It also means a deeply positive perspective will deeply enhance this experience: even rose-tinted glasses allow you to recognise opportunities that negativity only clouds and conceals

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
July opens with a choice: lose yourself in drama dynamics or let go and emotionally release and renew. Power struggles are everywhere it seems, even up to midmonth, but you don’t have to participate. Certainly not around the intense full moon (9th), when emotional pressure comes to a head for many. Just keep the faith you don’t have to control the uncontrollable to get where you want to be. From the 20th positivity is strong, and one of the most unusual and magnificent new moons of the year for you takes place on the 23rd, in your chart of home and family. It’s also about partnership, whether business or romance, and indicates impressive new beginnings in store.

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
First week up to midmonth, but especially around a full moon of change and renewal (9th), events revolve around income, resources and ownership. Don’t be drawn into power struggles at this time; they seem irresistible but at heart it’s about ‘lack’ of something wanted, so there’s no real power to be gained from conflict. Believe in your abundance instead. Midmonth is busy and enlightening, especially for communication and relationships. Then from 20th there’s unusually strong power (real power!) and positivity to your communication. Local neighbourhood and transport is a focus, as are sibling or sibling style relationships. Mars next to new moon (23rd) speaks of impressive new beginnings on their way that are something to be pleased and proud of.

Cancer
22nd June – 19th July
The sun is in your sign until the 19th, meaning the world is on your wavelength and you’re ready and recharged. There’s an unusual emotional intensity to circumstances up to midmonth (focal point for it all is full moon on 9th) especially in relationships, and it needs careful handling to avoid succumbing to drama and power struggle. Endings are a possibility, but only for what you’ve grown beyond, so loss holds relief. New life and fresh focus awaits, symbolised profoundly by a truly stunning new moon on the 23rd, in your chart of self-worth and resources. Mars stands with this new moon, indicating lots of new activity and drive forward in this area of your life happening for long-term plans and ambition, especially career related.

Leo
20th July – 23rd August
Events as July opens suggests a balance must be found between surrendering to circumstance or controlling details and specifics, because both are necessary at times. Renewal and regeneration is your guiding vision, especially around a powerful full moon on the 9th that calls you away from outer power struggles and toward inner peace. From the 20th desire planet Mars is in your sign, and the empowering sun from the 22nd, suggesting the next few weeks are truly your time of year. The new moon linking to Mars in your sign is an unusual and spectacular indication of magnificent new beginnings, so let your imagination soar about your next moves.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
Up to midmonth there might be some deep and emotionally intense dynamics in certain situations. Friendships, matters of the heart, and creative projects all seem to have this going on somehow. It’s productive in that what has been bottled up or emotionally buried might come to light to be dealt with, especially around full moon time on the 9th. This makes moving on to pastures new easier, and from 20th there is certainly much that is new and dynamic making itself known; indicated by Mars and the sun moving into the most spiritual part of your chart for an empowering new moon of new beginnings on the 23rd. In other words, destiny is calling and you’re ready to respond.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
Lots of focus on long-term plans and ambition for the first half of the month; also home and family matters, status and reputation, and comfort zone (just how far should you push those boundaries to push those plans forward?). In other words, lots going on that matters to you and your future direction. Rebirth, renewal and regeneration are key themes in this, especially during the emotionally deep full moon (9th). Refuse to participate in power struggles so things go much more smoothly. From the 20th it’s all about friends, groups and gatherings. A fiercely friendly new moon (23rd) is about new beginnings and recognition, linked to like-minded folk and your kind of lifestyle.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
Up to the 22nd, the sun moves through your chart of faith, views and beliefs. Faith is necessary during the first half of July, as there’s lots of unknowns and uncontrollable factors, especially first week and around full moon (9th). This full moon is emotionally intense yet brilliant for you as you instinctively know how to handle events around that time. Trust that you do, so power struggles don’t arise that close down the positive energy. And boy is there positive energy, especially from 20th, and 23rd, when a feisty new moon speaks of sparkling new recognition in store, for career and long-term ambitions. Definitely a time to keep reaching for the stars.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
Lots going on that requires trust in the unknown this month, especially first week and around full moon on 9th. It’s about making peace with uncertainty, and getting comfortable with not being able to control all the moving parts of a situation. Keeping an open heart and open mind about what’s possible will help, and giving people the benefit of the doubt rather than jumping to conclusions certainly helps too (especially 2nd, 5th, 17th). Then from the 20th it’s easy for you to find a strong, sure, sparkling and positive view about pretty much everything, which then means you’re a magnet for pretty much everything that is strong, sure, sparkling and positive.

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
The rebirth and renewal theme that has been with you for some years is active again; total transformation is something you’ve been drawn to, especially in yourself, your appearance and how you’re approaching certain situations. Full moon on 9th is about make-overs and changes in yourself that impact closest relationships and partnerships. In fact, the emphasis is on relationship for much of July, whether work, family, or new romance. From 20th you’re in bold, bright and radiant mood, which pushes you fearlessly forward into unfamiliar territory. New moon on 23rd is about the new ‘you’ that is emerging over the coming weeks, as a result.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
Everything revolves around practical, everyday stuff for first half of July. Whether it’s streamlining your working hours, making sure schedules run like clockwork, sorting health and fitness, or just sorting out in general. There’s renewal and regeneration for what was static or dormant but don’t be drawn into power struggles, especially up to the emotionally intense ‘clear the clutter’ full moon on 9th. Then assertive planet Mars moves into your relationship chart from 20th, followed by the sun (creativity and empowerment) from 20th. It means you’re now pushing forward in magnificent, strong ways for or with your beloved. New moon (23rd) is about all this, and your new vision for the future that is emerging over the coming weeks.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March
Friendship, family and fun is on the agenda for July, which can provide light relief from a deep and meaningful mood that’s mainly around first week and full moon time (9th). It might not feel like it sometimes but there are no dead ends this month. Think rebirth and renewal, and always look for next step in the process. From 20th mighty Mars moves into your health and wellbeing chart, followed by the empowering sun from 22nd. This indicates lots to be proud and pleased about (especially after new moon on 23rd). There’s appreciation and recognition, as well as boldly moving forward and never looking back. Very positive indeed if you allow it to be.

June 2017 Horoscopes


Aries
21st March – 20th April
Be ready to surprise yourself with your unconventional approach, especially in certain relationships. This is around the 3rd but also full moon time on 9th, when your desire for positive and fair communication can also work wonders building bridges, faith and confidence. Midmonth, communication can seem deceptively confusing or obstructive, so stick to what you know is true inside. Summer Solstice (21st) and new moon (24th) makes home and family matters more of a focus for you. There are new beginnings now, which might test your patience if it’s not at your preferred pace (28th), so let go and don’t push for control, especially 30th.


Taurus
21st April – 21st May
You’re in the mood for a break of routine, and anything unusual or unconventional attracts. Love and money planet Venus is in your sign from 6th, so you’re only interested in living according to what you value most. Faith might be restored that there are solutions and answers, especially to what was needed over the past few months; it’s more likely towards end of June, but notice what happens around full moon time (9th). Finances and resources have your attention for much of the month but from summer solstice (21st) and new moon (24th) it’s all about communication, which is deep, direct, focused and transformative, if you can resist power struggles.


Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
It’s your time of year Gemini. The sun is in your sign until the 20th, which symbolises creative power and opportunities to shine. Friends might surprise you (in a good way) on the 3rd, and the adventure-themed full moon in your relationship house (9th) is about not arguing for your limitations (18th, 20th). This moon symbolises a turnaround in matters of the heart that moves things forward more steadily in the coming weeks and months. The summer solstice (21st) and the new moon (24th) focus on important new beginnings linked to finance and resources. Events at end of month are challenging, yet your mind is powerfully clear and sharp. Use this power only for good!

Cancer
21st June – 22nd July
Mars (planet of drive and desire) is in your sign from the 9th until mid-July, indicating movement, action, and pushing forward with plans and goals. Full moon (9th) is about having faith in your journey, especially midmonth when things don’t feel as clear as you’d like. There’s a bit of ‘going with the flow’ required until 21st (summer solstice) when the sun moves to your sign and the future feels more in your hands. New moon in your sign (24th) happens once a year, and symbolises a new you emerging. End of June there’s potential for drama and power struggles, so don’t buy into them, keep your heart open instead; especially as there’s romance this month too.

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
There’s a new pattern in your planets. It happens every 19 years and lasts about 2 years. It’s about the kind of opportunities opening that come from you being your authentic self. Not the self that lives up to others expectations, or that has to hold back to fit in. It might mean stretching comfort zone, but worth it. For this month it’s all linked to friendships, groups, and gatherings, especially around full moon time on the 9th. Then from summer solstice (21st) and new moon (24th) you’re wanting something to immerse yourself and lose yourself in, so make it positive and healthful, like art, music, mindfulness, spiritual path, etc, and avoid power struggles and drama, especially 28th, 30th.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
The sun lights up your aims and ambition chart until the 20th. It’s also your chart of status and reputation, so all these themes are important to you, and is where your creative power works for you. Events around full moon (9th) highlight this. Midmonth there’s a crisis of confidence related to all this, which is just a call to look more clearly at the positive side of a situation, and to stop energising negative thoughts with your attention. Summer solstice (20th) and new moon (24th) is about new or renewed friendships, and finding ‘your tribe’. There’s lots of activity around this by end of June, especially 28th and 29th, when endings lead to beginnings.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
Jupiter (faith and perspective) moves forward in your sign on 9th. It indicates a turnaround or turning point for you, where the path ahead lights up in an easy and friendly way, making the next steps of certain situations clear and obvious, and unknown territory more of an adventure. It’s time to put the wisdom of your experience before the opinions of others (wisdom always feels positive), and from summer solstice (20th) and new moon (24th) this is what you’ll be doing when it comes to long-term planning, aims and ambitions, especially linked to career. Just take care to stay in balance end of month; don’t overdo, over reach, or over work anything.


Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
Events seem to revolve around the unknown and unfamiliar for much of the month, or anything requiring an amount of trust and faith in others, such as shared resources (first week expect the unexpected). A finance focused full moon (9th) emphasises the idea that security is a state of mind, not a set of circumstances, and the challenge midmonth is to change your mind whenever it drifts from this perspective. The rewards are peace, ease, and a turning point you’ve waited for, perhaps noticeable from summer solstice time (20th) and new moon (24th). End of month there’s such power in your perspective that things can manifest quickly, so stay focused on what feels good.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
Up to 20th, the focus is on relationships, partnerships, contracts, and agreements. First week is brilliant for creative projects, and it’s the annual full moon in your sign on 9th that brings out your adventurous side and your joy for a journey. Your ruling planet Jupiter moves forward then too, after months in reverse, indicating faith rewarded (good to remember midmonth, as circumstances might test that faith). The message of summer solstice (21st) and new moon (24th) is that endings always lead to beginnings; then events during final week might test your patience as well as your faith, but there’s also positive and powerful results that come from refusing to close your heart, no matter how wrong others are.

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
Love is in the air this month, big time. Romance will find you as it’s like the universe is on a mission. Around full moon time (9th) it’s about going with the flow, not forcing anything, and pushy Mars in your relationship house from 4th might make that challenging, but it’s good for getting the most out of contracts and agreements. All partnerships, whether business or pleasure, are important this month; more so after summer solstice (20th) and new moon (24th), that carries a message of new beginnings for key relationships. Potential for power struggles is high by end of month, so don’t get hung up on the outcome of events; it’s the journey not the destination.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
There’s surprising or enlightening communication first week of June, maybe linked to home and family. Creative projects are energising and moving forward despite appearances of being off track midmonth (sometimes things aren’t what they appear to be). You’re proactive about health and fitness all month, but especially after 20th (summer solstice), and a new moon (24th) focusing on new beginnings for health and wellbeing. End of month has a challenging planet pattern that is like a pressure cooker for relationships, and brings up unfinished business in general to deal with. The key is to keep rising above and away from power struggles, so the positive, productive side of this pattern can dominate.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March
There’s emphasis on home and family matters, and full moon time (9th) is about getting the work/home balance right, and about looking at long-term plans (also 15th and 18th). There’s a positive vibe for family connections over generations, and maybe discussions or communication around 13th. Creative projects, matters of the heart, and fun and enjoyment in general are all becoming increasingly important as the month goes on because these things are clicking into place more and more, especially after summer solstice (20th) and the new moon (24th) of new beginnings. There are tricky dynamics to contend with at end of month, but you have a knack of soothing conflict (especially 26th, 28th).

May 2017 Horoscopes

Aries

21st March – 20th April
From 3rd, Mercury (communication and logic) is moving forward after weeks of retrograde in your sign, which means a powerful change of mind and mindset. It’s not overnight, but some situations move suddenly, especially around the resourceful full moon on the 10th. It’s more like you’re between two worlds, moving on from past hurts but still unsure exactly what the future holds. So get comfortable and curious with uncertainty and the unknown, to stay open for the universe to surprise and delight you (12th, 19th). Not always easy, especially final week when you feel more like shutting off, but the new moon in your communication chart (25th) helps you stay connected.

Taurus
21st April – 19th May
The Sun in your sign until the 20th means you’re recharging and renewing creatively. There’s a full moon in your relationship chart on 10th, which has a soothing and transforming effect on issues brought to a head this month. Logic-loving Mercury, planet of conversation and dialogue, has been retrograde (moving backwards) for weeks, but this month moves forward and into your sign from 16th. This is great for communication and clarity, especially around 25th (new moon = new beginnings) and 31st. It can be a messy or chaotic month at times, but all the pieces of the jigsaw are there, and the fun is in putting back together.

Gemini
20th May – 21st June
From the 3rd, your ruling planet Mercury, is moving forward again after weeks of reverse motion, which supports your efforts in dealing with unfinished business. Up to mid-month, and especially around full moon on the 10th, relates to this, especially with friends, groups and gatherings, and in unconventional or unexpected ways. It’s easy to over-do or over-react mid-month, but the Sun (creativity and recognition) moves into your sign from 20th, and there’s a new moon of new beginnings for you on 25th. This is also when relationship or financial-themed unfinished business shows itself; along with some very productive action (if you don’t freak out about certain limits and boundaries that are still in place)

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
You’re seeking balance this month (especially 19th, 29th), and the key is a willingness to be happy in the here and now regardless. Meaning don’t wait for things to work out before you let yourself feel settled and secure, find ways of feeling it before you get your outcome (easiest around full moon on 10th). Aims and ambition, plans and projects, status and reputation are all in the spotlight and moving forward again, sometimes suddenly or in unconventional ways. Don’t be put off by limits or delays at end of May, however unsurmountable they temporarily appear; and do look forward to new communication and connections with the new moon from 25th.

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
Recently, you reached to the past for faith and perspective. Travel and learning was important, and maybe you reconnected with the past there too. From the 3rd, Mercury moves forward, which means new information and knowledge coming your way (often suddenly or unexpectedly), which focuses you on the future instead of the past (3rd, 12th, 19th) and transforms views and perspectives (9th, 25th, 31st). The sun is in your career and status chart until the 20th, with Mercury there from the 16th, indicating how things are revolving around aims and ambitions; especially events around the security-orientated full moon on the 10th. Also, especially from 20th, it’s all about friendship, groups and gatherings; with important new beginnings from 25th.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
Your ruling planet Mercury has been retrograde (appearing to move backwards) for weeks, which meant a roller-coaster of experiences revolving around who to trust, who to invest in, and what matters most to you. From 3rd, Mercury is moving forward, which means you are too; this time armed with the wisdom gained from your experience, and ready to make some informed choices. Things can happen quickly this month, especially first week, 10th (full moon), 13th, and 19th. Mercury moves into your faith and perspective chart from the 16th, and the sun is in your aims and ambition chart from 20th. This is a supportive blend, which works well around the new moon (new beginnings) on 25th.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
Mercury (logic and communication) has been retrograde for weeks in your relationship chart, indicating a time of review or assessment in partnership, contracts, and agreements. From 3rd, Mercury moves forward, which might mean you’re re-encountering issues that were a sticking point then, but you’re now ready for a different approach. This is most noticeable during first week of May, and during the ‘finance and resources’ focused full moon (10th), when situations might move surprisingly fast, also 13th. From 19th it’s about finding your balance when things increase or escalate quickly, and new moon on 25th is about renewal of faith and perspective, and perhaps some renewing related to home and comfort zones.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
From 3rd Mercury (logic and communication) moves forward in your problem-solving chart, which means solutions that seemed illusive over the past few weeks are likely to emerge, and in fast, unexpected, or unconventional ways. Especially around the 10th, during a fabulous full moon in your sign, which spotlights relationships, contracts, and communication in positive ways. Relationships, values, and resources have got your attention all month, and the universe will find ingenious ways to deliver what you want, if you stay open (especially 12th, 19th, 25th, 29th, 31st). The new moon on 25th is about trust and intimacy: people, places, and projects are all unknown quantities, and there is hidden potential and possibility to mine and discover now.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
There’s stable support from responsible Saturn and innovative Uranus all month (especially 19th). Fun and entertainment hasn’t been top priority recently, but Mercury moves forward from 3rd, indicating a change. Creative projects also get the green light, perhaps in surprising, sudden or unique ways; so no matter how many times something hasn’t worked, May can be the month it does (perhaps around 10th, 12th and 19th). It’s also a time to work on relationships, contracts and agreements: the Sun moves into this area of your chart from the 20th, and there are new beginnings in store with the new moon there on the 25th; so don’t let limits define you, or close your mind, by end of the month.

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
Your ruling planet, sensible Saturn, is in positive relationship to unconventional and experimental planet Uranus for much of May, most powerfully around 19th. It symbolises the general theme of good balance and good timing (startlingly perfect timing in fact), also the urge to plan and produce something unique or innovative, also sudden, surprising, or unpredictable progress (eg, leaps of faith instead of baby steps). This is most visible, along with your sense of fun and adventure, through communication and learning; especially around full moon time on the 10th. You might be inclined to overthink or overdo things towards end of May, especially at new moon (25th), so let go and trust the universe will meet you halfway.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
Your ruler is the unconventional and freedom-loving planet Uranus, and this month it teams up with Saturn, the planet of law, structure, and responsibility. Sounds like a clash of opposites, but this is a positive meeting, so it blends into a time to plan and shape your wildest dreams and watch them flow into easy fruition (but don’t be put off by challenges during final week). Friends, groups and gatherings might play an important part in events, along with communication, messaging, and even local neighbourhood (10th, 12th, 19th, 25th). You might be a freedom loving individual, but a sense of belonging matters a lot to you, and this is woven tightly int
o your decision-making now.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March

Career plans, or any long-term aims and ambitions that recently slowed, reversed, or hit obstacles, have the potential of moving forward again this month. The motion forward might be fast, unpredictable or erratic at times but it’s there, especially around a full moon (10th) that focuses on learning, communication, travel, and faith in your road ahead. The Sun warms and energises your home and family chart from the 20th, and there’s a new moon of new beginnings there on the 25th. The challenges of the final week can trigger defensive or protective behaviour but don’t let this shut down a burning desire for new adventures.

New Moon in Taurus - 26th April 2017...

...@1.15pm in the UK, though the new moon period includes a day either side of the date.

Whether we are already up and running with plans, or just at the ideas or dreaming stage, new moons are about new beginnings related to what matters most to us right now.

And earthy Taurus is about how much the physical world matters to us, and how much our relationship to what is tangible and already manifested means to us. It’s about value and worth… it’s possessions and purchases…ownership and business. It’s what you want to invest in. It’s self-worth and self-value. It’s your rock and anchor in life: what’s steady in an ever-changing world.

Taurus traits are loyalty, devotion, steadfastness

The Taurus experience is the pleasure, worth, and appreciation of the physical

So new moon in Taurus is about new beginnings in any or all of this. We have a lot of retrograde energy right now, including the effects of the recent Venus (ruler of Taurus) retrograde, which also puts the emphasis on the idea of renewal and regeneration, for example…..

for Aries: new/renewed income, purchases and possessions. Renewed sense of self-worth.
Taurus: re-investing in yourself, how you present yourself and how you approach the world.
Gemini: Something new and valuable to immerse/lose your whole self in. Renewal of spiritual values.
Cancer: renewed value of friendships, groups and gatherings. Investing in hopes and dreams.
Leo: renewed loyalty to aims and ambition.
Virgo: the value of perspective; appreciating the journey and where you stand right now in it. The value/wisdom of your experience.
Libra:  renewed sense of trust and intimacy. The value in sharing resources.
Scorpio: renewing valued relationships, contracts and agreements.
Sagittarius: Appreciating the little things. Renewing health and fitness commitments. Valuable problem-solving.
Capricorn: The value of the creative process… re-investing in fun and entertainment.
Aquarius: The value of comfort zones… re-investing in home and family.

Pisces: New or renewed communication. The value of sibling relationships. Investing in local area/neighbourhood.

April 2017 Horoscopes

Aries
21st March – 19th April
The sun is in your sign until 19th, so you’re in the cosmic spotlight. The planet patterns aren’t easy this month, especially 7th, 11th, 21st and 30th, but they are productive and healing. Full moon in your relationship chart (11th) is about balancing priorities, defying convention, and staying true to your true self (don’t ignore intuition or feelings). Then Venus, your relationship ruler, ends retrograde on 15th, indicating a turnaround or change of direction in key relationships. Mars activates communication and dialogue from the 21st (especially 28th) and there might be a second chance at something that didn’t go well first time round then too.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
Your ruler Venus has been retrograde (moving backwards) since early March, indicating a time of reconnection, reunion, and review in key relationships, including your relationship with yourself. From 15th, Venus is moving forward, which means relationships, business, finance, contracts and agreements do too. There’s a crisis of confidence around 8th or 21st; so don’t argue for your limitations, or give up faith in what can be.. Mercury retrogrades in your sign from 10th, which can delay or divert communication or schedules temporarily. But the sun moves into your sign from 19th, bringing your annual new moon (26th) which indicates new beginnings that feel freeing, valuable and worthy.

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
April isn’t an easy month but you’ve learned so much by the end of it that you define it an empowering and successful one. Events around 7th and especially full moon time on 11th, might surprise you or take an unusual or unconventional direction (and it might be repeated around 28th); especially for friendship, groups, and gatherings, as well as career, status and ambition. Mercury is your planet, and it retrogrades from 10th, indicating a change of mind or approach that helps you prepare for much needed talks or discussions. Venus ends retrograde from 15th, so relationships and finances are moving forward, and Mars in your sign from 21st means motivation to complete goals is uber-high.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
It’s not easy to be pragmatic this month (so don’t be!), as many things don’t fit expectations or fully make sense so you have to get comfy with the irrational and illogical. This is most noticeable around 7th, 28th, and especially during the full moon on 11th when key relationships, contracts or agreements are transforming. It’s also noticeable when Venus moves forward from the 15th, bringing a turning point to surrender into, and go with the flow of. New moon on the 26th in your friendship chart is refreshing and nourishing given the challenges of the month. New beginnings of substance, stability and value are emerging, with like-minded folk and crowds you want to feel part of.

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
There are challenging planet aspects (especially around 8th, 11th, 14th, 21st) indicating challenges for you, but they are serving to strengthen your purpose and resolve. In other words, what gives you a crisis of confidence around the 8th won’t by 21st, because all your experiences are increasing your self-assurance. Events around full moon on the 11th are about sorting your own unique balance of priorities that you’re comfortable with. Venus (love and money) ends retrograde on 15th, which means a change of direction, and striding forward after a period of uncertainty. Career and ambition might feel up in the air until next month, but the buds of new beginnings appear with the new moon on 26th.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
Venus, the planet of love and money, ends retrograde on 15th, indicating significant turnaround in these areas, slowly bringing healing and long awaited solutions and answers after weeks of feeling things were forced backwards or towards the past. Before that, especially around 7th and full moon on 11th, limits or obstacles might seem unsolvable, but your own planet Mercury retrogrades from 10th, indicating a review or update in your thinking. This enables you to revisit everything from a different perspective, particularly from 21st when purposeful Mars moves to your sign, then the new moon on 26th reveals a new sense of security and self-worth.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
It’s not a straightforward month, particularly around 7th, and the relationship-themed full moon on 11th. It’s difficult to sort sense from the complex dynamics, yet you end up feeling more clear and straightforward in yourself about so many things. Your planet Venus is ending retrograde on 15th, so after weeks of moving in different directions to your plans, there’s a slow turnaround to back on track. What happens around 15th is about healing and re-orientating yourself, and there might be communication or discussion to get there. From 19th and especially new moon on 26th, you’ve a new sense of faith and trust in the unknown; exactly what’s needed around 28th.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
You aren’t really in the mood for being practical as April begins, but it might be an idea to stay sensible at times (7th, 8th, 11th, 21st, 30th). Venus, planet of love and money, ends retrograde on 15th, which means things get moving and you’re looking forward again to what’s ahead. It also holds great significance for creative projects that stalled or needed specific solutions. Sun moves into your partnership chart from the 19th, and Mercury retrogrades there (11th) which puts all relationships, contracts, and agreements in the spotlight, and suggests reviews, reconnection, rescheduling and rethinking. A grounded new moon in your partnership chart (26th) is about welcoming a new sense of security, stability, and self-worth.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
Some situations don’t come naturally to you this month (especially around 7th, 11th, 21st, or 30th), but that doesn’t mean they are wrong situations, or that you’re wrong. It’s your desire to step up that is calling you forward; it might not seem practical but your sensible, responsible side is moving you forward in all this, into a leap of faith. Moving into the unknown, learning as you go, is actually the next logical step as that all comes naturally to you. This is most active around the freedom-seeking full moon (11th), and when Venus ends retrograde from 15th, bringing deep healing experiences for relationships and important connections.


Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
There are some tricky dynamics in situations this month; it takes a little bit of counting to ten, and a lot of believing that justice will prevail, despite lack of evidence. Especially around the 8th it takes effort to not let others push buttons or trigger ‘old stuff’ in you, and again around full moon on 11th, also around 21st and 30th, though by that time you’re more immune; maybe because of what happens around 15th, when love and money planet Venus ends retrograde, as there’s a change or turnaround triggered by events at that time, along with some overdue healing for situations. From 19th and especially new moon (26th) you are seeking security, stability and substance; and finding it.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
One side of you cares deeply about being fair on everyone, another side feels fiercely passionate about being able to be yourself, regardless of who takes offence. You are finding your balance in this during April, especially around full moon time on 11th, also 14th and 28th, when your desire for free speech and freedom of expression might get you into trouble with your internal censor. It’s also an exciting time for communication, travel and learning, if you don’t ask for conventional or predictable. Venus (love and money) moves forward from 15th, in your finance and self-worth chart, and new moon on 26th is about new beginnings at home and with family.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March

Some unfinished business is being completed this month (though some waits until next month), highlighted by events around the healing and balancing full moon on 11th, and when Venus (love and money) ends retrograde and moves forward in your sign from 15th. The full moon symbolises unusual and surprising answers and solutions arriving all month, in ways that can keep your faith in the future strong, even when things feel unfair or draining (maybe 7th, 21st or 28th). Much of April is focused on finance and security and from 19th communication becomes more relevant, especially with partners and with siblings. New moon on 26th brings new beginnings related to all this.

March 2017 Horoscopes

Aries
20th March – 20th April
March continues on the recent theme of balancing your need for freedom with your desire to expand and grow certain relationships (especially first week). Also, love and money planet Venus retrogrades (appears to move backward) in your sign from 4th until mid-April, which means a review and restyle: of yourself, of finances, and relationship. Mercury (your communication and thinking) is in your sign from 13th, followed by the Sun on 20th. Then the annual new moon in your sign on the 28th is a potent symbol of a new you. March is basically about your fabulous potential and what’s new and renewing about it, so the excitement and thrills keep coming.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
Your planet is Venus, the planet associated with love and value. Venus is retrograde (appearing to move backwards) from the 4th, until mid-April, so it’s an important time for reviewing, re-evaluating, and reconnecting with your priorities in relationships, finances and resources. You might feel more compelled to act, or make a first move on something that matters, especially after the 20th, also around new moon on 28th (don’t jump to negative conclusions though). Mars in your sign from 10th, indicates endurance and determination regarding your current desires, which makes you a formidable force in achieving goals and desires.


Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
A break, holiday, or change of pace might be happening this month. It gives you breathing space and thinking time about a long-term plan or project, possibly work-related. Around full moon time (12th) obstacles or limits are put there by you not others, even though it might seem otherwise. Relationships in general are also highlighted: friendships might rekindle or reconnect, once Venus retrogrades from 4th (and from 13th). In romance, there’s the potential for deep and satisfying resonance and harmony, so minimise challenges (especially around 24th!) and keep your heart and mind open to what can’t be put into words.


Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
Up to the 20th (especially full moon time on the 12th), the focus is on expanding horizons; perhaps through learning or travel (a holiday is a great idea!), but all month there’s huge focus on career, status, reputation and ambition. For example, Venus retrograde from the 4th until mid-April reconnects you with people, places or plans from the past, and brings a much wanted turning point or change of direction. Final week might be intense, but there’s method to any madness; it’s not for nothing that there’s a beautiful new moon (28th) bringing new beginnings and the birth of new opportunities.


Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
Situations that were important late-December, especially linking to travel or education, might become relevant again this month. Venus is retrograde from the 4th until mid-April, which means relationship reconnections and reunions (especially around 25th), and the new moon (28th) indicates new beginnings. Up to 20th, imagination is your secret power. The challenge is to stay focused on what you want rather than picturing what you don’t want, as your focus energises and magnifies whatever scenario you stick on. Full moon (12th) brings issues of security and resources to a head, so turn a crisis of confidence into a reason to keep the faith (15th, 17th, and final week).


Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
The annual full moon in your sign on the 12th, is about sorting out where you stand emotionally on things that are important to you now. It’s about emotional balance with others, but also your relationship with yourself. You’re looking for what’s real and true, and you have an open heart and open mind about what that might mean, which is a strong position to be in (challenges around 24th require you stay in that strength). Venus is retrograde from 4th until mid-April, which is about reconnections or reunions in relationships, as well as reviews of finances and resources (especially shared resources), and the new moon (28th) indicates new beginnings in all this.


Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
It’s been a case of expect the unexpected recently, with things happening that led to sudden change and sudden clarity. This is a continuing theme for March (especially first and final week), as well as a huge emphasis on relationships. Venus, your ruling planet, is starting a retrograde phase in your house of relationships, from 4th until mid-April; indicating a time of reviewing and re-evaluating, and reconnecting and reuniting. Not just for romance, it can be any relationship, including work or financial. It’s about reversal of direction, or a turnaround in events that is designed to lead you closer to where you want to be in future, and the new moon on 28th is about new beginnings linked to this.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
Creative projects, matters of the heart, friendship and fun are all at the forefront for much of March. The full moon on the 12th is about all this and any limits and obstacles that have been in the way. Love and money planet Venus is retrograde from the 4th until mid-April, in your work, health and fitness chart, which means you might be returning to a diet or exercise plan, or re-evaluating occupation somehow. Maybe some faces or places of work from the past become relevant again, and new, important beginnings are in store, symbolised by the new moon on 28th. Final week of March is intense, challenging but very productive.


Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
This is another month of unexpected or sudden happenings that brings clarity, new focus and vision. Up to the 20th the focus is on home and family, and balancing work and personal time. This theme is magnified around full moon time on the 12th, along with the idea of extra responsibility, limits and a new sense of authority. Venus retrograde from the 4th until mid-April is about reconnection and reunion, and new moon on the 28th is about new beginnings linked to this, for creativity, matters of the heart, fun and entertainment. Final week, especially 24th and 30th, is about renewal of resources, and keeping the faith in friendship. Love is transforming you too.

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
Recent events might have brought sudden or unexpected changes of plan, especially in home or family matters, that appeared disruptive yet positive for the long-term, and this theme continues for March. Venus is retrograde from 4th until mid-April, indicating family reunions, reconnecting to childhood, and a re-evaluation of your comfort zone. New moon (28th) is about new beginnings out of this. A philosophical full moon on the 12th is about how the wisdom of your experience serves you well, and how you’re broadening your horizons and widening the scope of your current experience through travel or learning. Final week (especially 24th and 30th) is about communication linked to career or ambition, and a sense of faith, renewal and transformation.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
New, sudden or unexpected events revolving around communication, learning, education and travel are a continuing theme for you this month (especially from 20th), just like it was last December (it will be again in September too!). Venus is retrograde from the 4th, so the past is more relevant than usual and perhaps reunions and reconnection are in store. Full moon on the 12th is about how you’re handling unknown or uncontrollable factors right now; especially with shared finances, and deepening certain relationships. This again crops up from 18th, especially 24th, 26th and around new moon on 28th. It’s all about working with the past, not rejecting it; and trusting your current journey to reveal a new sense of order.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March
The Sun is in your sign until 20th, which means it’s your time of year. Full moon in your relationship chart on the 12th is about reaching a balance, meaning you’re not losing yourself in relationships and not shutting down for self-protection. Venus is retrograde from 4th until mid-April in your income and resources chart. It means you’re re-evaluating and redefining your sense of self-worth in various productive ways. Recent sudden or unexpected events relate to all this somehow, and there might be more to come, unsettling you at times, yet really opening your eyes to your inner strength and resourcefulness. A new sense of respect for yourself is then reflected back to you by others, so take their compliments seriously.

February 2017 Horoscopes

Aries
21st March – 20th April
This can be a very healing month for you, even though things don’t always feel gentle or soothing (especially first and last week of Feb). Relationship and money planet Venus joins your ruler, the action planet Mars, in your sign from the 3rd, which suggests you’re more pro-active about your priorities than ever (with deeply transformative results around 22nd). There are two eclipses: on the 11th the lunar eclipse is about blending your sense of purpose with the group purpose. On the 26th there’s a solar eclipse in your house of spirituality and healing, and this is about the idea that healing starts with a sense of inner wholeness, regardless of outer circumstances.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
Beginning of February, and especially final week, might bring unexpected or unpredictable events, but balance-seeking Venus moves into the most spiritual part of your chart from the 3rd, encouraging you to let go of what others think, and take action that resonates most for you right now, with fabulous results. Eclipses indicate events with long-term impact, and the lunar eclipse on the 11th highlights stuff that has been coming to a head for a while, perhaps linked to home/work balance, or your comfort zone regarding long-term plans (maybe both), then the solar eclipse on the 26th again emphasises relying on your inner voice, intuition and feelings, especially regarding friendships and group involvement.

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
There might be sudden and/or mind-expanding communication, especially at beginning and end of February; also around lunar eclipse time on the 11th. Eclipses link to long-term events, so how you’re feeling at that time about communication, also your neighbourhood, and local area, is likely to stay relevant for a while.  Similarly, the solar eclipse on the 26th is powering your status and ambition chart, so the ladder of success is an important and long-term symbol and theme for you now. Mars and Venus are moving together through your friendship and support chart, so you’re actively seeking like-minded folk, and finding them. It’s also about your vision for the future, so think big, don’t second guess yourself, and watch how things fall into place.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
Being so tied into the moon cycles as you are, you might notice February’s eclipse energy more than most. Planet patterns this month suggest suprising or unexpected events, especially first week and last week. The lunar (full moon) eclipse on the 11th highlights your resources and resourcefulness, so this is the month to appreciate what you have and who you are (appreciation attracts more of what you focus on), even if you’re not fully where you want to be. The powerful solar eclipse on the 26th is about new beginnings and new perspectives. It indicates travel, education, and expanding horizons happens by moving where your kindness, love, and imagination want to lead you. 

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
The sun moves through your partnership and union chart until the 18th, and there’s a powerful lunar eclipse in your sign on the 11th. It means recognition of what matters to you, along with the motivation to move on what you value with others. If you’ve been tensing against your own truth (inner truth never ever hurts, that’s why it feels true), then events this month will help soften stubborness and break through any rigid perspectives that are holding you from your hearts desire. First week and final week is strongest in this, and the long-term focused solar eclipse on the 26th is all about surrendering to, or embracing what used to make you feel defensive and closed.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
Two eclipses this month indicate new cycles of development and change underway, and planet patterns speak of breakthroughs and faith rewarded. First week and final week have the most concentration of energy, and events that happen unexpectedly or break with routine. Lunar eclipse on the 11th is about recognition and visibility, even though you aren’t a sign that chases the limelight. It’s also about health and fitness, and opening to new solutions. Then the solar eclipse on the 26th is about powerful new beginnings in partnerships, whether in love or business. Situations make it difficult to do anything but follow your heart this month; it’s a time when love, kindness and compassion triumphs, even/especially in business.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
Jupiter, planet of optimism and expansion, is retrograde in your sign from the 6th, until early June. This indicates a change of direction for you, where the past becomes important to your present, and some old adventures become relevant again. Planet Venus joins Mars in your chart of relationships, contracts and agreements, and despite your peace-loving intentions, you don’t mind stirring things up a bit on your way to perfect partnerships (especially first and final week). Lunar eclipse on the 8th highlights friends, groups and teamwork in powerful ways. Solar eclipse on the 26th is about new beginnings related to health, fitness, and daily schedules; which might sound mundane, but there’s magic to be found there too.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
There’s something about the timing of things that has been a sore point for you recently; it was about the pressure of knowing certain situations had a time scale, yet not being fully in control of all the elements involved. The beginning and end of February looks a bit unpredictable, with things happening suddenly or seemingly out of the blue, but the lunar eclipse on the 11th still speaks of long-term plans being made; while events around the solar eclipse on the 26th suggests that if you relax and accept the bigger picture has a timing all of its own that somehow benefits everyone involved, it can soothe and heal any sore point.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
Your planet Jupiter is retrograde (appearing to move backwards) from 6th until early June. It can mean a turning point or change of direction for you now, where the past brings fresh meaning and momentum for the future somehow. Things move suddenly and unpredictably at times this month, so it’s about getting comfy with uncontrollability (especially beginning and end of February). There are also two eclipses: the lunar eclipse on the 11th is about travel, learning and expansion. The solar eclipse on the 26th centres on home and family matters. Eclipses indicate long-term trends, changes and accomplishments, so what is important this month stays important for a long time.

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
Take time out when you need it, even when you think you haven’t got time. Meaning, the idea of meditation is to give yourself peace and calm breaks, at least once or day, to reconnect fully with yourself (just sit for a few minutes and focus on your breathing). Then you’re fully charged and ready to deal with what this busy February throws (suddenly at times) your way. Eclipses indicate events with long-term impact and there are two this month. Lunar eclipse (11th) is about trusting the process, especially linked to home and family situations. Solar eclipse (26th) is about going with the flow, especially linking to communication (where there are important new beginnings).

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
There’s a lunar (full moon) eclipse in your relationship chart on the 11th. Eclipses set long-term trends, and magnify the energy of current events, as well as indicating a temporary shadow cast over circumstances. So perhaps your heart isn’t in certain relationships like it used to be, or losing your heart to a new relationship is disorientating. Whatever way it plays out, it’s important to remember ‘this too shall pass’, and the light always returns. Solar eclipse (new moon) on the 26th is about new beginnings related to finance and resources. It’s about a sense of self-worth that translates into something tangible when you aren’t afraid to keep your heart and mind fully open to receive.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March

There’s a powerful solar eclipse in your sign on the 26th, which indicates a new you emerging. Maybe not fully at once, but the process is underway, as shown by events during February, which can happen suddenly or unexpectedly at times (especially first and last week), and are signs of what is developing. The key is to let go of doubts and let things unfold in their own time (they will anyway but the urge to help things along can be irresistable). The lunar eclipse on the 11th is about things coming to a head, finding solutions, and ending stalemates. Events around eclipses have lasting impact, so focus on keeping here and now positive.

January 2017 Horoscopes


Beautiful January is underway, here we go with the first horoscopes of 2017...

Aries
21st March – 20th April

Happy 2017 Aries! You're in soft and mellow mood as January opens, and if you need to wear rose tinted glasses to stay there, so be it, because you’ll achieve more by relaxing into the prevailing flow. January in general is about breakthroughs and expansion that you're guided to, rather than pushing towards (including romance). Around 7th to midmonth (full moon on 12th), might feel more demanding, yet more productive too. Then, around 28th there's a new moon (new beginnings) for friends, groups and gatherings. Unfinished business from December might finish at this time, and your ruler Mars moves into your sign, indicating it’s now time to be proactive and push forward.


Taurus
21st April – 21st May

Happy New Year Taurus. Regeneration and renewal through travel, education and learning is your theme for much of January, especially towards midmonth and around full moon time on the 12th, when the planets stand in strong formation calling you towards soul-satisfying journeys. Links with groups, whether work related or friendship based, are important too. It’s where romance sparks and thrives, and it’s where you feel motivated or driven by the sense of oneness from group purpose. Mercury (communication) moves forward from 8th, and from 19th the sun re-energises your ambition and career chart. New moon on the 28th indicates new beginnings linked to this; perhaps from plans that you’ve been conscious of since midmonth full moon.

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June

Happy 2017 Gemini...the planets are gathering in your ambition and career chart. Your style of climbing the success ladder is different from others, in that you like to spend time dreaming and imagining success, even at the expense of taking care of some of the practicalities at first. This is exactly the right way to do it by the Law of Attraction, so don’t let others change your style, even during the security-orientated, financial full moon on the 12th. Mercury moves forward from the 8th which means your relationships are too (take note of how unfinished business from December is finished by end of month). And a future-focused new moon (28th) is about travel and learning.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July

Happy 2017 Cancer! It’s all about the next logical step for you this month, which is easier to take from the 8th when Mercury (logic and communication) moves forward after weeks in reverse (notice what happens around new moon on 29th regarding unfinished business from December). Next steps are also around 12th, when the annual full moon in your sign moves stalemates, and breaks through static situations. Relationships, romance, and contracts are all in focus as a result. There are lots of planets in your travel and education chart all month, which means lots of your energy and attention put there. Certain people or places might be calling to you, so go if it feels positive


Leo
23rd July – 23rd August

Happy New Year Leo! January can be a ‘sweet spot’ of the year, despite there being elements of certain situations you’d prefer were different. Maybe because it feels easier to relax and trust the universe has your back, and this lack of inner tension helps things click into place naturally. From around the 7th to around the rather spiritual full moon on the 12th, there’s plenty happening that would normally create tension, but because you’re tapped into the productive and constructive aspects of the situation, it feels like things are building in positive and creative ways. From the 19th and especially new moon time on the 28th, relationships have your attention, where new beginnings are in store.


Virgo
24th August – 22nd September

Happy 2017! There’s still a lot of emphasis on relationships, contracts and agreements as the new year gets underway. Lots of planets are lining up in this area of your chart which means so much seems to revolve around this area of your life. Your ruler, logical Mercury, moves forward from the 8th, indicating a turnaround in your thinking and communication, and perhaps something to look forward to linked to home and family. Full moon (12th) is about the challenge of a situation that brings forth positive and maybe sudden increase and expansion. There are endings as beginnings too, particularly around the problem-solving new moon on 28th. Unfinished business from mid-December-ish might get sorted at this time too.


Libra
23rd September – 23rd October

Happy New Year! You’re fully focused on the flow of your daily schedule, and it’s likely to feel busy this month, so staying effective and efficient is important to you. Lots of planets are in your health and fitness chart, which means lots of your energy poured into this area of your life and New Year resolutions are fulfilled. Romance might be found in the most mundane of places, yet still feel special (especially midmonth and final week). Second week, including full moon on 12th, is about productive effort toward change or make-overs linked to home, family, and/or long-term plans. Then, a ground-breaking new moon on the 28th indicates new beginnings involving creativity, and especially creative partnerships.


Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November

Happy 2017 Scorpio! Planets are visiting your fun and entertainment chart this month, so even though January has it’s serious and sensible moments there’s still lots of lightheartedness in store. Creativity is strong too, and it’s easier to find yourself ‘in the zone’ than before. The second week, and especially around 12th, during a full-on full moon, is about keeping the faith and a sense of belonging, and there’s (maybe sudden or unexpected) beginnings through endings via communication (especially 7th and 10th), and via home and family (new moon 28th). End of January might bring back unfinished business from mid-December, and you might choose to move forward on something you turned away from back then.


Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December

Happy New Year :) January can be a pivotal month for change (no pressure then!), especially around the second week, during the financially focused full moon on the 12th. Value, balance, friendship, networking, and creativity are all important themes at that time, which can call forth profound change as the new year inspires you to take a leap of faith and a new perspective, and make the most of dearly held dreams and visions. There are also plenty of planets all month in your home and family chart, which means lots of energy and attention to this area of your life. And some inspiring communication or ground-breaking information might show itself from 19th, particularly around 28th.


Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January

Happy New Year, Capricorn! The idea of building step by step toward long-term goals is right up your street, so you always do well at this time of year with new year resolutions. The urge for change and transformation might be strongest second week, helped by the sun energising your sign until the 19th and a full moon on the 12th in your partnership chart. This energises (and possibly magnfies) what’s happening in your close, personal, or business relationships, so if things are sweet they are about to get sweeter. There’s also huge emphasis on communication all month, and also situations involving your local area and neighbourhood, especially 19th and 27th. Unfinished business from December is transformed then too.


Aquarius
21st January – 18th February

Happy 2017! January is about relaxing into the idea of things happening at the perfect time (especially regarding finances). This takes a bit of trust because not everything can be planned for, and not everything is under your direct control; so there’s an element of faith in the bigger picture required. This is exactly what events during the second week (especially 7th and 10th) are about, along with the very spiritual ‘go with the flow’ full moon on the 12th. The sun moves into your sign from the 19th, and there’s the annual new moon there too, on the 28th. This indicates inner balance, new ideas for the future, and opportunities 
for self-development and growth. 


Pisces
19th February – 20th March

Happy New Year :) Several planets visit your sign during January, which indicates your focus on changes you now feel ready for. Your approach to issues is by the path of least resistance; you prefer to go with the flow around obstacles, rather than confront or push against them, and this will work well for you, for the most part, all month. That’s not to say effort isn’t required, especially during second week and full moon on 12th, but efforts are rewarded with a sense of healing and improvement in key situations, especially when you feel beyond the appearances of a situation into the quiet truth of it (where truth doesn’t hurt). New moon on 28th suggests new beginnings linked to all this.
