Aries (March 21 - April 20)
Unexpected visitors or friends could become the bane of your life. Although you might feel you can cope with whoever turns up, a certain blast from the past may still have the power to blind-side. Not a problem. Simply charm, and then disarm. The more accommodating you are, the sooner you realise who deserves to be shown the door.
Taurus (April 21 - May 20)
Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
Mercury’s back-pedalling could mean your finances are pushed to the extreme, but don’t fret. In recent times, you’ve doled out much monetary kindness and now is the time to call some of these favours in. If you can’t guilt-trip people into submission, you can at least ensure they’ll think twice before asking for your help again.
Leo (July 23 - August 23)
Mixed messages could cause confusion later this week. With Mercury slip-sliding through your relationship sector, avoid saying anything you don’t really mean. You might say something on a whim and then come to regret it after the cosmic dust settles. Think carefully before you speak - your words could cause others pain.
Virgo (August 24 - September 22)
Libra (September 23 - October 23)
For you, the idea of financial disorder is a nightmare. But does Mercury care? Not one iota. This capricious planet is happy to slide you back into uncertainty. There’s also emotional interplay at work. Expect an office romance or personal versus professional conflict. Perhaps more self-confidence would help you take bolder strides.
Scorpio (October 24 - November 22)
Until your domestic life is sorted, nothing is going to make sense. This week’s powerful planetary emphasis on your fourth house reminds you that charity begins at home. Your desire to make a mark on the big wide world is admirable, but to do all-round good, you must give your full attention to an urgent situation within your immediate family.
Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21)
Expect a communication breakdown this week, Sagittarius. A mischievous Mercury turns retrograde, making it harder than usual to get your message across. You may have projects and potential deals in the mix, but hold off signing documents for a few weeks. You may also suffer some insensitivity-syndrome, so think before you speak.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)
With last week’s uncertainty out of the way, this is a much easier week to navigate. Aside from some confusion caused by Mercury’s mischief, you glide through the next few days with barely a glitch, and with the Sun in your financial sector hopefully bringing extra cash. Just don’t spend it all on luxuries - you do need to eat.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)
Mercury causes stress-overload for many Aquarians this week, so it’s hardly surprising that your energy levels are low. Stop being in denial. You’re a powerful life force, but even you can occasionally overtax your strength. And ease off the junk food. Your body is meant to be kept like a temple, not a rubbish bin.
