Sometimes there’s not much celestial activity to write about. And others, the planets offer an embarrassment of riches. Despite having the complexion of an overripe tomato, I’m not remotely ashamed by how much astrology I can talk about this week. The mere thought of explaining how Venus, which has been in a Grand Trine, then enters Virgo, while Mercury joins with Mars as they both oppose Neptune, which also combines with a New Moon — and it’s the Equinox — in so few words, makes me break out in a sweat. So I’ll simply suggest that it’s best to embrace a new paradigm.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

What are your thoughts about the Loch Ness monster? The only evidence for it is a blurry photo or two and the occasional sighting of something large in the water. But, just because we haven’t seen something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. We believe that dinosaurs ruled the earth, although none of us has ever met one! There’s some truth at the heart of every legend and myth. You feel your dreams about the future have the same chance of coming true as meeting Nessie. All you need to know now is, don’t rule anything out. In your love life: Nothing wrong with having a keen intellect; but it’s what’s in your heart that counts for far more than what’s in your head.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

The cartoonist Scott Adams said, ‘Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.’ Now I don’t want you to think that you’re doing anything wrong. Quite the opposite. You’re meticulous in your methods, and resolute in your reasoning. But sometimes we need to accept an element of risk. We must sacrifice certainty for opportunity. This week, you have the chance to create something beautiful from difficult circumstances. To do so, you need to be willing to engage with imperfection. In your love life: Are you making a mountain out of a molehill? Soon you’ll get some much-needed perspective.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

Lots of us can’t begin our day without a dose of caffeine. Others choose nicotine to kick-start their mornings. Though both may have nasty side-effects, they contain chemicals that stimulate us. Mercury is conjunct Mars again. But this time, it’s going in the right direction, which means that it’s having the same effect as the most delicious of pick-me-ups. This doesn’t mean that you’ll be buzzing around like someone on their third cup of coffee. But, you should notice that things start to pick up. Exciting times lie ahead. In your love life: Something has changed in you — a difference in your moods and attitudes. You’ll make some powerful impressions soon.
#Gemini Daily Prediction

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 22)

In this great age of communication, how do you make yourself heard? How can one voice lift itself above the chatter? Is there any point in even saying anything, when we’re saturated by information? Yes! Because you have something important to say. And if you say it in a measured, positive and passionate way, you will be heard. People will realise that you’re proposing a vision that can and should be shared and fulfilled — not some pipe-dream. So take a deep breath, and speak up! We need to hear you. In your love life: It is now clear that a recent decision was right. Expect a sense of great vindication and relief. Don’t doubt yourself so much.
#Cancer Daily Prediction

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 23)

Just because something didn’t work out the first time, doesn’t mean it won’t work now. The trouble is, that we’re so used to instant internet access, high-speed travel, and electronic communication, that we stall when plans don’t work immediately. It seems that in this frantic world, there’s no time built in for second attempts, or ‘time to ponder’ pauses. But no one ever alighted on a ground-breaking discovery in just one day — ask the people of Rome! Try something new and you’ll be surprised by what suddenly seems possible. In your love life: A deep sense of loyalty now prevents you from exploiting an otherwise ideal opportunity. But that may well be right.
#Leo Daily Prediction

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

Venus is in your sign. In case you were wondering, that’s why you have so many deep emotional resources at your fingertips! Where matters of the heart are concerned, you find yourself with an impressive repertoire of skills. It’s a positive position to be in. Just watch out that your ability to intuit the emotions of others doesn’t lead to your own feelings being overlooked. You could easily give too much of yourself. So, instead, be carefully loving and generous with your time and your energy. You’ll find that it’s reciprocated. In your love life: People are not always very nice to other people. But when they are, amazing miracles can happen... as you will soon see.
#Virgo Daily Prediction

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

The Sun is about to enter your sign. It marks your solar return, (your birthday), and another milestone reached in your life. But milestones and achievements aren’t necessarily the same thing. We may get the chance to achieve many ambitions early in life, but we usually need to be able to place them in the context of wider experience before we fully appreciate them. This week, consider both the events, and their settings. As you gain new perspective, you’ll find that their value soon becomes apparent. In your love life: There is a chance now to do something a little wild. Are you mad to pursue this? No. You’d be crazy not to.
#Libra Daily Prediction

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

It’s a fact that nothing unites two warring factions as much as a common enemy. Individuals as well as organisations have repeatedly found that a shared dislike can bring people together in a powerful and positive partnership. Governments use this to keep the people busy and take the heat off the politicians! In a part of your world where there has been conflict recently, you can use a similar technique. Find a common bond and you’ll find that you have support and encouragement from surprising resources. In your love life: Don’t worry about going over the same ground; it will help you form a plan that will pay off handsomely.
#Scorpio Daily Prediction

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Some things are down to providence. We’re simply in the right place at the right time. A series of completely unpredictable events ends up turning out in our favour. The problem is that we can’t rely on luck alone. We have to be prepared, ready to catch it if it happens to be passing our way. And, it’s not as though we’re powerless to create our own fortune either. The movements of the planets suggest that you’ve done a lot to create some luck of your own. You should start to reap some deserved rewards this week. In your love life: Why ask yourself an unanswerable question? Because you’ll make the best choice if you reach for the highest perspective.
#Sagittarius Daily Prediction

Capricon (Dec 22 - Jan 21)

You know what you must do now... don’t you? Or, could it be that you’ve made an assumption and find yourself in a position when you’re assumed to have more knowledge than you have. If you’re feeling out of your depth, don’t panic! We all sometimes pretend to know more than we do. We’ve all found ourselves in tricky positions because we’ve made a supposition and then leapt into action. Simply asking the right people the right questions will lead to an easy solution. Look for wisdom and you’ll find it. In your love life: It’s one challenge after another. Your emotional obstacle course may look daunting, but you’ll get through it with ease!
#Capricon Daily Prediction

Aquarius (Jan 22 - Feb 19)

Well-intentioned, intelligently organised plans often fall apart because of our inability to work as a team — even when we’re working towards a common goal. How does it happen? How can a project fail when everyone’s pulling together, believing in the same things, and striving for the same goals? The answer, of course, is the ‘people’. There’s nothing quite like personal agendas to disrupt a process. Now, rather than worrying about who’s responsible, think about the solution. I suspect you might just find that the answer is... you! In your love life: There’s lots of free advice floating around. But it may be wiser to listen to your heart than to conventional wisdom.
#Aquarius Daily Prediction

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

Some people have ‘super powers’. The Moken tribe of South-East Asia can hold their breath twice as long as the average person and see clearly underwater. Tibetan monks can apparently dematerialise. How does this affect you? Well, you underestimate yourself. You might not be able to teleport, or survive underwater, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t have super powers of your own. The Grand Trine is empowering your hidden gifts. If you make the most of your abilities, then the week looks very promising! In your love life: There’s a lot of fuss about one issue. Treat it as if it’s no big deal — then relax as its apparent importance diminishes.
