Welcome to the Equinox, when the Sun puts on an astonishing mesmeric show. Okay, so it might not have the glamour and glitz of a Solstice, but it’s a significant moment nonetheless! This particular celestial event exerts its influence without fanfares, celestial fireworks or flashing lights as it brings the chance to look at another side of a familiar story. With this week’s Full Moon expressing its energy through a link with industrious Saturn, here come opportunities for realisations that will have far-reaching consequences.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

There’s a big difference between taking a calculated risk and making a wild gamble. As the Full Moon in your sign highlights what’s been restricting you from attaining your ambitions, all you need to do is ensure that when you feel as if you need to push your luck, there’s room to both push and manoeuvre. The stakes aren’t as high as they seem; so rather than concentrating on what you might gain, it’s worth considering what you risk losing. Apply some common sense and you’ll find an easier way to get what you want. In your love life: You’re dealing with volatile issues. Be discreet, but don’t start apologising for things that you are entitled to be doing.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

Just as music stimulates our memories and excites our emotions, so the planets heighten our mood and strike chords in our hearts. In times gone by, it was believed that they were celestial instruments, playing a sound in a heavenly song that we struggle to hear. They’re currently creating a symphony that’s making you feel nostalgic, and a little uncertain about what to do for the best. This week, as Mercury changes signs, you’ll understand why you are where you are, and how it is helping to get you to where you want to be. In your love life: Don’t know if you are being unfair? What seems okay now will one day seem despicable. Don’t wait; change it now.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

There are major ramifications for the choices you’re making. Yet, although it’s vital to be clear and honest, it’s essential to approach any unresolved issues with an open mind. As the Full Moon links to Saturn and your ruler changes signs, a drama is coming to a head. That’s not supposed to send you into a panic. Quite the opposite! The feeling of being baffled by the way a key person is responding to a situation has been adding to the complexities that need to be sorted out. Be willing to learn, then you’ll be able to lead the way. In your love life: Spending your life coping with the ugly twin sisters of guilt and emotional obligation. A fairy godmother is coming.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 22)

We live our lives, we learn a few things along the way, we carry on living and learning. That's the nature of life. You're wondering if you were wrong to be so nervous of a certain possibility, which you then tried to avoid. Yet feeling doubtful, with hindsight, suggests that a lesson has not yet been learned. You needed to do everything you did, even if it was just so that you could stand back and decide not to go ahead. This week, brings reason to be grateful for a decision you’ve reached; so you’re free to be optimistic about the future. In your love life: Underestimated the energy that a commitment is likely to require? Give it more; it will eventually give you more back.

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 23)

Since human beings first graced planet Earth people have been pondering the meaning of our existence. Philosophers across the centuries have reached different conclusions. Some even think that the universe has been designed so that no one ever gets what they want. If they’re right, then you’re living proof that there’s a flaw in the laws of the cosmos! With Mars opposite your sign, there’s a good chance that if you want something you can get it! And, the less effort you make, the more likely you are of success. In your love life: Apparently irreconcilable forces can be united. It’s worth making an effort for that kind of a perfect compromise.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

Although a problem may baffle just about everybody else in a room, you’ll have an idea of how to solve it. In fact, there’s a good chance that you’ll know just what to do to make everything all right. You have clarity. Yet, you don’t always manage to follow your logic through with the right actions. Does that matter this week? As the Sun leaves your sign, we find you in a less pragmatic and more poetic frame of mind. Even though your methodology may surprise even you, it could turn out to be unforgettably successful. In your love life: Serendipity is about to start working in your favour. But don’t feel obliged to accept every gift you are offered.
#Virgo Daily Prediction

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

When is it time to say “stop”? How do we know when we’ve had too much of a good thing? Or when we’ve reached the end of the road? Warning lights aren’t always as obvious as we’d like to think they are. And, sometimes, things look far gloomier than the reality, and we hear false alarm bells. You’ve been the recipient of information which has caused you so much concern you’re considering coming to an abrupt halt. Yet your project means a lot to you. With the Sun in your sign, you just need to stay alert, and keep on track. In your love life: You are doing something delicately and it is having the right impact. Don’t become blaring instead of caring.
#Libra Daily Prediction

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

Romantically minded folk talk about finding a soulmate. It’s such a wonderful idea… no wonder we wistfully imagine such a creature exists. Yet souls have ethereal natures and cannot be possessed by anyone. On the physical plane of planet Earth, it’s hardly surprising that no matter how strong the bond, or affinity of a relationship, there are moments of exasperation. That’s life. With Venus in your sign, don’t let your ideals of an impossibly romantic dream stop you from enjoying the reality of what’s on offer! In your love life: Playing roles can often be the right thing to do. It may be awkward to adjust to, but it can bring you what you want.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Life has a way of surprising even Sagittarians! You have no idea what it might call you to do in the future. You often show a fascination for gathering information that others might consider irrelevant. But rather than condemn this characteristic, you should value your innate enthusiasm. You're increasing your knowledge base – and knowledge is power. This week, as you're called to use some of your experience to assist in a critical situation, you'll find that you're appreciated for your attention to detail and your willingness to share. In your love life: Don't let anger derail you. Look and see that you can create vast improvement in a set-up that you object to.
#Sagittarius Daily Prediction

Capricon (Dec 22 - Jan 21)

You feel as if life is stretching you one way, while something from your past pulls you in another. This is creating a worrying situation and causing you to doubt the thinking behind your carefully constructed plans for future success. Perhaps you fear that you don’t actually want what you thought you wanted. Yet, a fundamental change of plans could be the best way to proceed. It doesn’t mean that you need to change everything in your life. As you’re about to discover, you have far fewer reasons to worry than you think. In your love life: Take another look. You may find that you underestimated something the first time. Take your time.
#Capricon Daily Prediction

Aquarius (Jan 22 - Feb 19)

With the energetic power planet Mars still in your sign, there's nothing like a sense of urgency to slow things down. When the heat is turned up, and the pressure is piled on, priorities and perspective go out the window. While it’s great to feel motivated, feeling frantic creates a space for erratic and wild energy, which can be very disruptive. Rather than impulsively leaping into action this week, it’s better to do nothing until you’ve formed a proper plan. Then, you’ll find that there are great gains to be made. In your love life: A forthcoming development will open your eyes. It will help you to appreciate the true value of an existing asset.
#Aquarius Daily Prediction

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

How would you define the art of success? Did you say “happiness”? It’s true, of course, that if you haven’t got that, then everything else is rendered almost irrelevant. So, is there something that’s stopping you from being happy? If you answered that in the affirmative, could that be anything to do with your unsatisfied desire for success? Ha! That’s this week’s paradox in a nutshell! It’s going to be easier than you imagine to get what you really need: it’s just that you might not recognise it when you get it. When you do, it will make you smile. In your love life: You can’t control everything! Too much is just... too much. Do your best, then draw a line. And relax.
