Mercury’s transit across the face of the Sun may be over, but its effects continue to wield an influence. This week, as Mercury changes direction, it morphs from being a fault-finder into a solution-sleuth, and helps us appreciate why we seem to be lumbered with certain tasks. As Mars returns home to Scorpio, we’ll be motivated to dig deep, and be inspired by underlying factors and newly discovered insights. And, with the Sun changing signs at the end of the week, it’s a time for lighter moods and brighter prospects.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

While some people spend their lives seeking the secret of eternal youth, others search for the key to happiness. Yet they share the same objective; if we want to stay youthful in spirit, we need to be happy at heart. And if lasting happiness is our goal, we need to keep mentally, physically and spiritually active. Growing older doesn’t need to come with a jaded approach to life. As a dynamic Aries, youthfulness is part of who you are. Enjoy the adventures of the week, and you’ll grow wiser as well as older.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

Cooperation is the buzzword of your week. I say that, even though I know you’ve done very well by yourself, and that you’re embarked on a project that is highly personal. It’s true that you could carry on carrying on... and probably get quite a long way without needing any help. But if you can find a way to compromise on the idea that no one else can do it quite like you, you’ll make greater gains at greater speed. You don’t need to sacrifice your integrity either. Being gracious will take you far this week.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

One of the most famous lines from the Western marriage service is ‘Till death do us part’. Interestingly, the vows don’t extend to consider the concept of reincarnation. Yet if, as some people believe, we keep coming back to work on our karmic relationships, we could end up with an awful lot of partners and spouses on our hands! With your empowered ruler turning direct this week, you’ll be relieved to know that a challenging phase you’ve been going through with someone close is coming to an end.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 22)

Since today is the first day of the rest of your life, what are you going to do with it? The problem is that we spend too much of our time doing what we feel ‘obliged’ to do with our days, rather than what we’d like to do with them. Under the current, positive cosmic climate, this week presents you with possibilities to actually find ways of enjoying doing things you’re obliged to do. And, if you want to make the right thing happen, you’ve just got to make sure that it involves doing something that makes you happy!

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 23)

They say ‘if you can’t do the time, then don’t do the crime’. But they also say that ‘if you can’t stand the heat, you should get out of the kitchen’; which is useless if you’re somewhere you can’t escape from. You’ve recently realised that you’re in a situation you’d rather not be in, and can’t find an easy way to extricate yourself. As your ruling planet, the Sun, moves into enthusiastic Sagittarius this week, the situation will unfold in such an innovative way that you can move onwards, and upwards, with ease.
#Leo Daily Prediction

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

We’re supposed to have something put aside for a rainy day. But what if there’s a huge deluge that lasts until the end of the year? Maybe you should save a little bit extra just in case the weather turns. How about the people who are indebted to you? Should you be checking to ensure they’re going to honour their intentions? When we feed our insecurities, they grow so big that they destroy things that are secure. This week, focus on what’s going on in the here and now. It’s much better than you think.
#Virgo Daily Prediction

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

Mysteries fascinate us because they’re so intangible. As soon as we understand something, the enigma that surrounds it completely evaporates. Likewise, once we can see behind a problem, it loses its power; and when we recognise why someone is behaving in a certain way, we know how to deal with them. This week, as Mercury changes direction, it blesses you with exceptional insight, and reveals the way to make sure that what you discover works to your advantage. Keep an eye open for treasure.
#Libra Daily Prediction

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

As we come to the end of your birthday season, we find you adjusting to a new situation. Whilst you’ve been expanding your horizons, and investigating new possibilities, the process has left you feeling slightly discombobulated, and uncertain about what to do next. This week, as Mars enters your sign, it brings a boost of confidence that will help you to process all your recent experiences, so that you’re more relaxed and clear about the direction you’re heading towards. Things are about to get better.
#Scorpio Daily Prediction

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

It’s that time of the year when it seems as if the leprechauns have been at the wine, and the fairies have been so busy polishing their wands that they’ve had to take time out to recuperate. So, this week, if you want to summon cosmic assistance, you’ll have to be clear about what you need. Remember too, to be careful about what you wish for. As the Sun prepares to enter your sign, magic is heading into your world. Be sure to use it wisely... and enjoy the early birthday presents the week brings!
#Sagittarius Daily Prediction

Capricon (Dec 22 - Jan 21)

If we don’t know what the rules are, it’s impossible to know whether we’re living by them. This is important, because whilst some rules were made to be broken, others are meant to stay in place... and if you’re ignorant of what the rules are, how can you tell which ones can be flouted, and which ones need to be rigorously maintained? This week, as Mars changes signs, one or two of the rules and regulations that have been stifling you can be (gently) broken! A new sense of freedom is possible.
#Capricon Daily Prediction

Aquarius (Jan 22 - Feb 19)

It’s easy to overlook the obvious; we’re drawn by whatever appears to be most demanding and urgent. That’s why it takes such an effort to stop... and take a moment to reflect, rather than be dragged into drama. You’ve been coping with several different crises recently. You certainly don’t need any more plates to spin. So, this week, as Mars settles into a new sign, if you can find the discipline to calmly contemplate what’s taking so much of your energy, you’ll find a way to set something impossible right.
#Aquarius Daily Prediction

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

You have a list of what you need to do. Some things are under the heading marked ‘possible’ and some are filed in the ‘impossible’ drawer. Yet you’ve overlooked an important category; it’s called ‘things I might be able to do’. As Mars changes signs, you can uncover a talent you’d pushed to the back of your mind. You’re about to discover an ability you need, but thought you lacked. It will enable you to navigate round the obstacle that’s been preventing you from moving ahead with your plan. It’s time to move on.
