Your Year Ahead

Some Leos have a tryst with destiny this year: to become a leader against cruelty.  Whether you’re fighting against domestic violence, the harming of animals or the environment – for you now, might makes right.  Sure, the Leo nature is usually more playful – but your inner Rescuer breaks through. Tremendous satisfaction comes with the experience of battling for a cause. Many will benefit from your active involvement.

Aries (March 21 – April 20)

Best Day: Friday 11th

Something feels wrong, Aries.  For starters, your financial judgment is “off”.  Stay open and honest in all your dealings, and assume everyone else to be the opposite.  Check documents for unnoticed errors and keep credit cards under control.  Don’t overspend.  

Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

Best Day: Monday 14th

There are times when we experience loss or significant change in our lives. If this is your current situation, try to see this as just one more of life’s experiences.  There’s no need for fear.  This too, shall pass.  Remember, without endings, there can be no new beginnings.


Gemini (May 21 to June 21)

Best Day:  Thursday 17th

It may be hard to keep your feet on the ground when all of your senses are flying sky high.    Right now, many Geminis seem preoccupied with anything but the here-and-now.  The most likely culprit?  That crazy little thing called love.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Best Day: Tuesday 15th

The cosmos is fully aware of your professional merits and now helps to promote them. Don’t waste this chance – take advantage of new opportunities. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing hard work pay off, and winning the respect of bosses and colleagues alike.


Leo (July 23 – August 23)

Best Day: Friday 11th

You’re quick to learn, Leo – so this week should suit you well. The planets promote an atmosphere of open chat, and there’s so much new to learn. At the same time, discard outworn attitudes and embrace the new.  Then stand by for the unexpected.


Virgo (August 24 – September 22)

Best Day:  Wednesday 16th

A crises can force a change of mind – and this week brings such a time.  Along with altering the way you think and react to others, you develop a deep need to strengthen your inner power.  Just don’t forget to recharge your batteries every few days.


Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Best Day:  Saturday 12th

Apart from the occasional moment of uncertainty, a delightful week awaits.  On the whole, you feel energetic and confident.  Better still, both friendships and finances feature highly; and if you come across as being a tad over exuberant, you’ll be forgiven.  


Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)

Best Day: Friday 11th

Well, here’s one for the books. Scorpios can be resistant to change.  But this week, if anyone’s going to search for excitement, it’ll be you. Something’s caught your imagination.  Fun takes priority – a happier you breaks through.  Enjoy your special moments.


Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Best Day: Tuesday 15th

This week is well-suited for deep thought. Your mind is ready to come up with new plans, but it needs some quiet time to piece the puzzles together.  Others may try to distract you – but don’t let them.  You don’t need their company right now.  You need to concentrate.


Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Best Day: Wednesday 16th

Knowledge is power.  It’s also the key to a successful and satisfying future, so make new studies a priority this week.  Travel could also expand horizons.  If these options aren’t possible, then simply pick up a new book.  You’ll be amazed at what you could learn.


Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Best Day:  Saturday 12th

Seems you’ve stepped into the right week, Aquarius.  You’re positively dripping with charisma, and cheeky enough to flaunt it.  Words roll smoothly off your tongue, and that fierce jungle that we know as business is practically eating out of your hand.  Lure in the prey.


Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Best Day: Monday 14th

We all move on and leave things and people behind. It’s the way this old world of ours turns. But before starting on life’s next chapter, bring unresolved issues to an end. If you don’t, the cosmos will do it for you.  And I’m sure you’d prefer to be the one in control.
