Your Year Ahead

This year, others see you as being different – and you are.  It seems like you’ve finally found the inspiration to make dreams come true.  Your desire for freedom and new experiences is intense and urgent.  You’re far more rebellious with a strong need to travel – or simply, escape the daily routine.  Do it, if you can.  And it won’t be a lonely journey as love beckons.  

Aries (March 21 – April 20)

Mercury, the cosmic communicator, turns direct on 6th May – after which any recent misunderstandings, confusions or delayed communications come to an end.  Usually, the message with Mercury moving forward is “full speed ahead”.  Expect a new job, new status or new love.  


Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

Everything has an upside – something worth remembering this week. Although usually shrewd, your affirmative batteries need a quick top up. The real problem is you’re feeling vulnerable. When life becomes this confusing, it can help to take a quick break – particularly after the 6th.  


Gemini (May 21 to June 21)

Once your mind’s made up, you’re unstoppable.  You’ve had some great ideas lately and can’t wait to put them into motion.  Just consider: have you included your partner or a particular friend in the decision making?   They deserve to voice their opinions.  


Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Fulfilment and happiness are near at hand – promising the successful outcome of a venture or relationship.  This culmination of events may also indicate material wealth or greater spiritual awareness. You may choose to buy that dream house or a wonderful partnership is on offer.


Leo (July 23 – August 23)

Leos feel a strong push towards securing house and home this week, preferring a safer, more conventional stance.  But this sudden call for stability may be at odds with a more restless partner or friend.  End result: head-on conflict.   So much for peace and quiet.


Virgo (August 24 – September 22)

Supposedly, everyone is innocent until proven guilty. But should your suspicions be aroused this week, few will get the benefit of the doubt.   An advantage of being so astute is that it’s all-but impossible to get the better of you.  Your inner voice serves you well.


Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Foresight has it’s place in helping you to be successful, but this week may find you trying to second guess the future.  End result?  A whole heap of ill-founded conclusions – some of which are just plain wrong.  For now, leave prophecy to the psychics.


Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)

It’s a week to be cautious because you or another may be unscrupulous. You may be running away from an unresolved issue, or someone could cheat you out of something that’s rightfully yours. An envious colleague may also try to make you look bad, just to exemplify their own reputation.


Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Seems you’re the luckiest sign of the zodiac this week.  But even with Lady Luck on side, don’t test good fortune.  Mercury is still out of phase until the 6th.  So to avoid bad press or quarrels – be on your best behaviour.  And if you’ve nothing good to say, say nothing.


Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

At last there’s an honest breath of fresh air in your relationships, allowing you to comfortably be yourself.  The week ahead offers an easier run, though there are no promises regarding how long this will last.  For now, you’ve the chance to simply enjoy.


Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Life has its ups and downs, and understanding and accepting this helps us to hold a more realistic view of life itself. Remember, though – that just as the proverbial ‘wheel’ can turn up, it can also surely turn down; that’s just the eternal rhythm and cycle of life.


Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Not sure how to tackle a delicate situation?  Just be tactful.  Don’t worry if you say something that causes resentment.  Your antagonists will eventually be blessed with the right level of insight – and then you’ll be deeply thanked.  Perhaps even rewarded.
