The Week Ahead for Aries
Going it alone is not always the best solution.
The astrological focus is still on finances, and with little or no aggravation from the planets you should make smooth progress dealing with monetary organizations and people with whom you have shared financial interests. While you work well on your own and enjoy a degree of independence in all walks of life, the importance of backers and partners cannot be underestimated at this time.
Listen to what other people have to say and what they have to offer you, and try not to treat advice as criticism. And although work and money are top of the list this same advice could come in handy with a romantic relationship.
The Week Ahead for Taurus
It’s time to talk business. On the one hand, this is an ideal week to work with people who can help you make career progress and to form partnerships of a business nature; and, on the other, if there have been difficulties in an intimate relationship much can be done to resolve problems or, if necessary, find an amicable solution to going your separate ways.
Always someone who keeps your feet on the ground, you could still be emotionally affected by what is happening at present, but you should do your absolute best to remain objective and keep the door open just in case things change in the future.
The Week Ahead for Gemini
Venus has been on a mission to heal rifts and set you on the path to relationship happiness, but in the process she may have had to remove an obstacle or two. Now, these obstacles could have come in the form of fears of commitment or doubts about someone’s integrity but whatever the difficulties they should be behind you.
You will have further opportunities in December to right relationship wrongs and make or break the ties that bind, but this is an exceptionally good moment to reach agreements or to prepare the ground for such developments in the near future.
The Week Ahead for Cancer
Knowing your assets.
Venus enters the seventh house in preparation for a season of important relationship developments. This may tie in with your plans for, say, an anniversary or some other special occasion or it may put you on the alert for a new romance. Likewise business partnerships and work contracts will be in the frame until the end of the year.
Sometimes you fight shy of putting yourself in the spotlight and drawing attention to your assets, but not so now. Other people will be much more open to your charms, and you should exploit this mercilessly! Any opportunity to allow your personality to shine should be grabbed with both hands.
The Week Ahead for Leo
Mars enters the zone of relating in preparation for a six-week period of intense exchanges. If sex has been off the menu for a while, it could return, whether a new passion enters your life or the embers of the old are re-fired. Then again, Mars is renowned for its feisty and fearless nature, so don’t be surprised if you start butting heads with people who are normally the sweetest of souls.
While you yourself are courageous and self-protective, for the rest of 2016 make sure that you’re not taking on someone or something bigger than you. Be pragmatic and gracious because someone could take advantage of your passion and your pride.
The Week Ahead for Virgo
Most people lead busy lives but you could be running the risk of failing to miss opportunities simply because you are bogged down in routine life. Now is the time to put forward ideas to other people with the intention of bringing them into reality. It is also the time to reach out to people with whom you have lost touch.
Christmas is but six weeks away and a timely message now could make a huge difference to how joyful the season of joy can be this year. Allow your emotions and your intuition to guide you - there will be plenty of time later for you to bring your organizational and practical skills to the party.
The Week Ahead for Libra
Get on with it!
With three planets moving into new areas of your solar chart, there is movement and change in your life. First, the home front is going to benefit from Venus’s ministrations, second, your communication skills will receive a boost from Mercury, and finally Mars will be in the most creative and pleasure-driven sector beefing up social life and potentially putting you in the spotlight.
Travel is also in the mix, whether you are heading out of town in the near future or plans are being laid down for later in the year. Not for the first time am I giving you a gentle reminder that putting off till tomorrow what you could agree to today is a pointless strategy.
The Week Ahead for Scorpio
Turning maybes into actualities.
If you have been thinking about redecorating or making home improvements, Mars has joined the team turning maybes into actualities. Likewise, using your property as a means of extra income should be explored. Anything on the home front that has required attention will be greatly helped by this planet’s energy and drive.
Of course, there’s a downside - everything in astrology has a plus or minus factor - and in this case you will have to watch out for upsets and conflicts regarding the home or the family. Put on your diplomatic boots and leave the boxing gloves in the closet.
The Week Ahead for Sagittarius
Mercury emerges from the mists of the twelfth house bringing you clarity and the power of speech. Hopefully, you have made good use of the past few weeks researching, preparing and discovering hidden truths - some of them in your own heart. From now on sharing your thoughts with others and activating your plans should be uppermost on your agenda.
After the 12th money and self-esteem get the Venus treatment so although you cannot expect all your financial woes to disappear you will make progress. And perhaps the most important aspect of Venus’s transit will be your feeling richer in spirit.
The Week Ahead for Capricorn
Making the most of your assets.
Venus transits your sign once a year inspiring good fortune and love. Now, you could just sit back and test the theory out but you would be better using this planet’s divine qualities to manifest your desires. Rather than wait for that person to ask you out or make you an offer you wouldn’t dream of refusing, turn the tables and make the opening move.
Much can be done to improve personal and professional relationships, so if a cooling off has occurred it’s time you started taking people to lunch. Making money is also going to be a theme for the next few weeks, and if ever there was a time to mix business with pleasure it is from now until Christmas.
The Week Ahead for Aquarius
Time to get going.
Mars enters your sign on a mission to get you moving and motoring. While the next six weeks could be one of the most active and “happening” periods of 2016 if you want to get a project off the ground or achieve one of your main goals the green light is on. You may have to sacrifice some fun time, and you may have to ruffle a few feathers, but this is not the time to put your ambitions on hold but to show people you mean business.
The end of a chapter is approaching, first and foremost in regard to home and family life, but for some Aquarians a change of job is on the horizon. Use this week’s influences to back up your position.
The Week Ahead for Pisces
Stand up and be counted.
Late November through December is one of the most go-ahead periods of the year, and when you have an astrological tail wind behind you there is no excuse to keep your head below the parapet. Launch your manifesto! Show those who count you are a contender. And, most important of all, be clear about your intentions and stick to your guns.
While getting on with colleagues and superiors is always a plus, being a people-pleaser compromises your own happiness and success. There are all manner of fish in the sea from minnows to killer whales: it’s time you showed your true and beautiful colours - swim with the sharks!.
