Your Year Ahead

Think back a few months – projects started then should finally start to pay off. Others may make extra demands on your time, but this only motivates you to push capabilities to the max. Better still, financial worries start to ease.  As long as you don’t count your chickens before they start chirpin’, you should manage well. The danger lies in spending before anything actually rolls in.  A difficult ask, when there are so many temptations on offer. Ditto for romance.  Nonetheless, the biggest surprise this year will be just how well you cope with the unexpected.   Memorable moments are in the making.  

Aries (March 21 – April 20)

Best Day:  Friday 20th

Mercury asks that you sort out your finances once and for all so you now have to be totally focused on money in order to thrive.  The upside:  promotions and pay rises seem likely – so stash any extra cash and you may just gain yourself a reprieve.  Love brings surprises, with romance possibly venturing towards being secretive.


Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

Best Day:  Sunday 22nd

Don’t know about sticks, but this week it’s verbal stones that could break bones.  No bodily harm will come of it, of course, but there’s bound to be some wounded pride or hurt.  Someone needs to be the peacemaker.  Let it be you – lead by example.  Or, you could benefit from trying a completely different environment or social circle.  


Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Best Day:  Thursday 26th

Mercury, your ruling planet, moves backwards this week – playing tricks on your mind or giving you bizarre dreams or disturbed sleep patterns.  Misplaced keys, forgetting things or physical exhaustion are possible results of Mercury’s churning over thoughts and actions.  Don’t rely on your memory – write important appointments and details down.  

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Best Day:  Monday 23rd

You’re in a low-energy, high-pressure week, and several planets are behaving badly.  This is a time for visiting friends or family, relaxing at home or catching up on overdue beauty sleep.  It’s time to self-indulge, avoid responsibility and mental overload. So, slip into something comfortable, fire up your social media and retreat for some well earned R & R.


Leo (July 23 – August 23)

Best Day:  Wednesday 25th

Go easy, Leo. You can’t treat life as a battleground and not expect conflict. Very few would be prepared to compromise with an arm twisted behind their back. If it’s peace you’re after – consider waving the white flag.  And if you hear a clanging alarm, it’ll be your finances giving you a wake-up call.  Thankfully, fortunes change by late July.  

Virgo (August 24 – September 22)

Best Day:  Saturday 21st

Seems you’re the luckiest sign of the zodiac this week.  But even with Lady Luck on side, don’t test good fortune.  Mercury goes out of phase after the 23rd, so to avoid bad press or quarrels – be on your best behaviour.  And if you’ve nothing good to say, say nothing at all.  If you need extra moral support, look to friends or family.

Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Best Day:  Friday 20th

Give yourself a break, Libra.  There’s still plenty to be achieved, but it can all wait until you’ve had some time out.  This week, you need to do what you enjoy best.  There’s also the chance for an honest breath of fresh air in your relationships, which also allows you to comfortably be yourself.  Singles, too, are better placed to find a compatible companion.

Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)

Best Day:  Sunday 22nd

The intense, and sometimes dramatic, Scorpio heart often rules the head, with love always on your mind – especially so this week, with strong emotions present.  You’re also blessed with uncanny insights into how others feel.  You now truly understand what loved ones both crave, and need.   Finances aren’t too dire either.


Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Best Day:  Tuesday 24th

Looks like you’re not as pliable as some would like.  Sagittarians are too astute to be duped, but this won’t stop those with less morals from trying.  You’ve half a mind to call their bluff, but the best thing to do is go about your business, and ask others to do the same.  Look after your own interests for a while.  


Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Best Day: Thursday 26th

It’s rare to find a Capricorn lazily lolling around, but that’s just what the cosmos has in mind for you right now.  During an intense week of planetary folly, take your holiday at home and fill your days with television, sleeping, yoga and perhaps – the occasional chocolate binge.  It may be hard for you to resist invitations, but it’s worth it to get the rest you now need.  


Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Best Day:  Saturday 21st

When several not-so-heavenly bodies heave you here, there and everywhere – you’ve a right to feel confused. One minute you’re up, the next…down. If doubt invades your confidence, remember your talents and strengths. You’re loaded with them. Anyway, right now – you should be concentrating on having fun.


Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Best Day:  Sunday 22nd

Calling all hoarders:  if you have belongings that you never use, it’s time to designate them to the trash.  At work, a shake-up calls time out on something.   If a new system is in place, get clued-up as quickly as you can.  Things are less clear in your love life, when someone suddenly becomes a tad more secretive.  Keep your wits about you.
