A Blue Moon occurs when a second Full Moon takes place in a calendar month. It doesn’t happen very often. Rarer still, is a second Full Moon in the same sign, like this week’s second Full Moon in Libra; it’s known as an Astrological Blue Moon. This one comes just after Mercury has entered Aries, and emphasises how new understandings can grow from honest, heartfelt communication. As Venus and the Sun prepare to change signs, they energise this potential. Both personal and international relations will be enlightened this week.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

There are reasons why we won’t do particular things. These are often based on sound thinking. Perhaps we’ve made promises to ourselves or to others. Or, we’ve made decisions based on our experience. But sometimes, our reasons are silly. We base our excuses on miscalculations. We manage to convince ourselves that we’re standing up for something we believe in when, in truth, we’re sitting on the fence, colluding with our fears. When the Astrological Blue Moon brings an opportunity, don’t be afraid to take it. In your love life: Be wary of a potentially unhealthy symbiosis in a key relationship now!

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

There’s absolutely no chance of you witnessing a phoenix rising out of the ashes if you’re not prepared to behold a raging metaphorical fire. If you’re on the lookout for a magnificent rainbow, you’ll need to take yourself where there’s a good chance of rain and sunshine. Life is full of bittersweet moments. We have to be prepared to take the rough in order to appreciate the smooth. You’ve become aware of an unsatisfactory situation. Yet, the Astrological Blue Moon suggests you’re about to discover the gift it holds. In your love life: Your fan club has many followers; and part of the attraction is your mystique. Don’t try too hard to be accessible.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

I need to find the right way to say this…. um, it’s just that your grasp on the reality of a situation is a little… how can I say it… Er… you’re in danger of banging your head against a brick… well you get the picture. The thing is, I don’t want to be confrontational. You’re a Gemini. You know what’s what and you’re sensitive to criticism. So, I’ll try some reverse psychology. You’re doing amazingly and your judgment is faultless. Perhaps, though, to keep others on board, you might be wise to listen to their opinions. In your love life: Ignore your concerns. Your solution is as close to perfect as you’re ever going to find. It’s now time to apply it.
#Gemini Daily Prediction

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 22)

Breaking news! Due to this week’s Astrological Blue Moon, you’re being transported into a different dimension. You’re living in a universe where everything looks and feels the same as it did, but certain factors have been altered beyond recognition. Okay, that might sound a bit fantastical. But, it’s a fair enough evaluation of the scenario you find yourself facing this week. It’s as if an ethereal spirit being is watching you with the ability to change things to suit your aims. Just be careful what you wish for. It might come true. In your love life: You are about to enjoy significant increase in status. Step, with humility, into your position of power.

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 23)

Although everyone makes misguided decisions, there’s no denying that you’re a lucky person at heart. If you’re feeling flummoxed and confused by that assertion, it’s because you’re feeling unusually uncertain about following your intuition. Where you’ve been doubting, you should (galvanised by the Astrological Blue Moon) be able to make an important choice. If you'd rather hold on to your doubts, you might be fall into feelings of self-importance. Yet, no matter your attitude, luck is presenting something delightful. In your love life: Disentangle yourself from negative responses. Resist the urge to get further into something you need to let go of.
#Leo Daily Prediction

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

You appear to be caught on the horns of a dilemma. You have a choice to make. You can either develop a friendship or make a categorical point. You can’t, though, do both. I’m here to remind you that you’ve already won the argument. You know, in your heart, that you’re right. But being right isn’t always a comfortable position to be in. It can be lonely. Sometimes, it’s better to be in good company than isolated at the top. There are grey areas in which a gentle compromise will work very well this week. In your love life: Don’t let this sleeping dog lie! Wake it up. Make it bark and draw the attention of someone who can help.
#Virgo Daily Prediction

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

Every conversation involves an element of risk. Suppose it turns confrontational? Or creates misunderstanding? Suppose it starts a relationship with someone who might not have your interests at heart? Yet, we’re social beings. Since we can’t move or speak without making relationships, we learn to filter out such worries. As the Astrological Blue Moon forms in your sign, you’re taking courageous action. Although the repercussions will be important, you will like what they bring. Keep doing what you’re doing this week. In your love life: You are just having a minor wobble. Steady yourself. A development very soon will bring an inspiring revelation.
#Libra Daily Prediction

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

There are more than a few people in your life who feel confident that a part of you belongs to them. Most of the time, this feels flattering. Yet, it places you under a lot of pressure too. When other folk project their feelings and expectations on you they also place a weight on your shoulders, which is why you sometimes feel guilty. This week, under the Astrological Blue Moon, you’re being given a chance to break free from several arrangements which have become burdensome. Be strong enough to help yourself. In your love life: You can’t break the rules of nature to make the ‘impossible’ happen. But you may be able to bend the rules a little.
#Scorpio Daily Prediction

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Where is it all going to end? You’ve been on this particular path for a long time, and you’re becoming understandably bored with the endless, repetitive stories that are being told. Although it promises to be a meaty drama, it feels as if you’re watching a farce. Under the Astrological Blue Moon, you can create a much more satisfying scenario. This week brings the potential to make a significant change to the plot. Your increasing awareness of what isn't working will enable you to put it right. The end is in sight. In your love life: Don’t feel inadequate because your life is not Bollywood. That’s a fantasy; you can create real natural magic now.

Capricon (Dec 22 - Jan 21)

What are the signs that tell you when you’re hungry? Do you need to calculate the amount of energy you’ve used up, and compare it to your calorific intake? Do you have to have special permission from a nutritionist before tucking into a meal? No! There are some things you just ‘know’ without thinking about it. So it is with a dilemma you’re facing. The Astrological Blue Moon empowers you with the ability to ascertain your true feelings about the best decision to make and the right way to communicate it. Trust yourself this week. In your love life: Are you so upset about something big that you are directing your opprobrium at something small? Focus on the big issues.
#Capricon Daily Prediction

Aquarius (Jan 22 - Feb 19)

The most important thing you need to bear in mind over the next week is that regardless of how intimate you may feel with someone, there’s a limit to how much you’re able to understand about their position regarding a mutually complex situation. Likewise, they’re unable to completely ‘get’ your innermost feelings. The Astrological Blue Moon indicates a time when pragmatic action will be much more helpful than wishful thinking. That’s lucky, because you’re highly skilled at that. This could be a very productive week. In your love life: Mischief? Or harmless pleasure? It may soon be time to think about drawing a line. But not necessarily right now!
#Aquarius Daily Prediction

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

The ball of rock we’re living on just keeps on spinning. As it turns, we spin with it. It’s astonishing that we don’t feel dizzy. Yet, we don’t even notice the rotational motion. What sets us in a spin, is the way life turns and twists. Just when we think we’ve got everything under control, whoops, there it goes again, turning things upside down and round about. Even though the Astrological Blue Moon may unsettle you or cause you to question a key relationship, your life is taking a real turn for the better this week. In your love life: Events are making you face a choice. Raise your spiritual consciousness or sink into a sense of unnecessary unease.
