All this week Venus squares up to the intense energies of Pluto. The trick to handle this is to be conscious of our deeper motivations in terms whatever or whoever we are drawn towards. Furthermore, if we encounter someone who lays on the charm with a trowel, we need to ask if their charm and patter are sincere.
Aries 21 March - 20 April
How we express ourselves is going to become quite a thing for us all now that the Sun is finding his feet in Gemini which is ruled by the planet of communication, Mercury. And this week's New Moon in this sector is going to add even more power to the way you get your ideas across. However, with Venus in your sign clashing with the powerful Pluto, the trick is to not try too hard.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
You more than most have a great appreciation of life's little luxuries and marshalling your resources Taurus. This week's lunation can help you to do this even more effectively over the next four weeks. Mind, with Mercury in your sign angling to the gentle energies of Neptune, it could be that you're going to do something really kindly or thoughtful for someone in your circle.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
The planets are conspiring tremendously positively for you. With a New Moon in your sign this can give you greater get up and go and a sense of urgency. If there are any projects that you're wanting to initiate, this is a fabulous opportunity to springboard them to success. Yet it's going to be important to understand around your career, that subtlety remains important.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
A collection of energy in your sector of spirituality and healing, as well as a fine link between Mercury and Neptune, can see you thinking reflectively about your situation and your future. This may include grappling with older issues which may still be playing out in the here and now. One person you encounter may also seem very persuasive, but try to identify their motives.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
A really social vibe kicks in this week Leo, and you can enjoy being at the heart of it all. This could also be a fine time to think about your longer term hopes and aspirations. The more you network and connect with others, the better you can do. However, around your love life, in an on-going tie there needs to be a fair share of responsibilities and freedom between you.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Your star is in the ascendant now Virgo, so do all you can to reach for them. You're set to be in demand, and people can recognize your special talents and capabilities. Even if you're someone who is sometimes reluctant to push yourself forwards, raise your profile and march onwards with confidence. If you've felt under recognized, someone close can be very encouraging.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Your appetite for new horizons can really burgeon now. You'll refuse to be identified on the basis of anyone else's values system. Look to explore both physically and intellectually. This can see you looking to travel, booking future expeditions and enrolling in college courses. However, one very close relationship or a potential love affair can seem rather supercharged with passion.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
You're known as the zodiac's most passionate operator, and this week signals a major increase in your powers of persuasion, your natural magnetism and your sex appeal. You can also have an inner sense that certain elements of your life could be ripe for change. However, someone you encounter can give you some very insightful, if gentle, but powerful advice Scorpio.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Relationships are a key area of life for us all, but this week the focus really switches onto these for you. Solo? This can give you the push to interact more. Joining clubs or interest groups can be a great way to do this. Involved? You may want to better understand what you will get and give in the game of love. You can also find yourself feeling more competitive now, Archer.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
You have a great appreciation of organisation - well usually! And if some of your life routines have got a little out of sync, now is a fine time to grapple with them. You also can find yourself becoming more conscious of what you eat and drink. In general, a little more virtue can light up your situation. However, one conversation can turn out to be uplifting, perhaps inspiring too.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
A much more outgoing and playful vibe shapes your situation this week, and although there may be one or two moments when you reject an invitation and opt for some restful down time, it probably won't be long before people are trying to tease you out into the social whirl. Your creative talents are also going to come powerfully into play. Have total confidence in yourself.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Keen to decorate, spend time on your garden or in nature? This week is made for you. The New Moon can give you a tremendous appreciation of creating the perfect environment, and also the chance to muse on the things that are important within yourself. A very special connection to a close friend or family member is also possible as the week comes to a close, Pisces.
