This week there’s a powerful Jupiter/Pluto square. How will it affect you?
Inspirational quote for the week is from actor, martial artist and philosopher Bruce Lee [born on November 27, 1940].
“Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.”
KICKASS ARIES [March 21-April 20]
This week’s powerful Jupiter/Pluto square boosts your desire for attention and success in the outside world. Which certainly suits your innate Aries drive and ambition. But, if you overdo it, then you’ll just end up alienating authority figures [like your boss] or loved ones [like your partner] in the process. On the weekend, your wonderfully witty side is set to blossom, as you brainstorm ideas and amaze others with your quick-witted quips and controversial comments.
TENACIOUS TAURUS [April 21-May 21]
Are you a stubborn Bull who is holding onto outdated ideas? Are you obstinately sticking to old ways of working, as if you’re on auto-pilot? It’s time to put aside preconceived notions and examine your beliefs in a mature and philosophical new light. On the surface it may appear that you lack self-belief, but you have a quiet inner confidence that will eventually shine through. If you’re faced with a problem on the weekend, let your intuition point you in the right direction.
GUNG-HO GEMINI [May 22-June 21]
When it comes to a tricky relationship, are you desperately trying to fix a frustrating situation? Expect some resistance from others this week – especially a child, partner or friend. A quick-fix just won’t work. Instead, you need to slow down and take the time to really think things through. Expect a welcome boost on the weekend, when the Mercury/Uranus trine precipitates a brilliant light-bulb moment, when you solve a sticky problem or come up with a stunning idea.
CREATIVE CANCER [June 22-July 23]
Here’s the uncomfortable truth … you can be a bossy Mother Hen! And the more you try to control those around you, the more they will push back. So it’s time to take a good long look at your motives. Perhaps you are on the wrong track? Perhaps you need to be less possessive? Perhaps you should give a loved one more freedom, so they can fight their own battles and make their own mistakes? Food for thought this week Crabs as you connect with family, friends and colleagues.
LUCKY LEO [July 24-Aug 23]
The current buzz word is humility! Hubris, pride and over-confidence often come before a fall. Especially this week, when Jupiter squares Pluto. So you need to practice being super humble at the moment Cats, otherwise you’ll come a cropper. Mercury, Saturn and the Sun [your power planet] are all moving through your self-expression zone. So it’s also time to tap into the playful child within, as you translate inner inspiration into fabulous creative projects in the outside world.
VERSATILE VIRGO [Aug 24-Sep 23]
Jupiter and Pluto place money matters or self-esteem issues under the microscope this week. But don’t waste too much time weighing up the pros and cons of a given situation. Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus all encourage you to stop ruminating, pondering and postulating. Instead, start turning your thoughts and ideas into active, dynamic and productive projects. As birthday great Bruce Lee declared “If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.”
LOVABLE LIBRA [Sep 24-Oct 23]
Has your perfectionist streak got out of control? The more you try to make things ‘perfect’ [including yourself] the more you will attract opposition from others. You need to focus on the process rather than the outcome. It’s also a week when you may suffer from a crisis of confidence. Be inspired by the wise words of birthday great Bruce Lee “Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.”
PASSIONATE SCORPIO [Oct 24-Nov 22]
Proceed carefully with all forms of communication this week, especially social media. Otherwise you could provoke a negative response from hidden enemies or known frenemies! The Jupiter/Pluto square can also make you much more self-critical. By all means examine your inner motivations but don’t spend too much time navel-gazing. Heed the wise words of Bruce Lee [born on November 27, 1940] “To know oneself is to study oneself in action with another person.”
SASSY SAGITTARIUS [Nov 23-Dec 21]
Under the influence of the Jupiter/Pluto square you could get carried away; promise the Moon [and the stars]; and then fail to follow through. Or blow your budget with a spontaneous spending spree. Or commit yourself to an ambitious project that you really don’t have the time [or enthusiasm] for. Big talk is no good if it doesn’t translate into dynamic action. So this week’s special celestial message is “People will prefer it if you under-promise and then over-deliver.”
CLEVER CAPRICORN [Dec 22-Jan 20]
Ambitious Goats aspire to climbing the work or corporate ladder with nimble ease. But are you blaming circumstances [and other people] for the relatively slow progress you are making? Be careful that this week’s Jupiter/Pluto square doesn’t fan your control-freak tendencies. Examine your motives carefully Capricorn. And remember – the only person you can control is yourself! As birthday great Bruce Lee declared “To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.”
AVANT-GARDE AQUARIUS [Jan 21-Feb 19]
This week avoid taking short cuts and instead, take the time to do everything by the book. The current Jupiter/Pluto square could exacerbate a current legal situation – or lead to one in the future. So make sure you stay on the right side of the law. The weekend is wonderful for creative communication and flashes of inspiration, as you socialize in style or post up a storm on social media. And for some digital divas - a controversial comment you make could even go viral!
PERCEPTIVE PISCES [Feb 20-March 20]
Compassionate Pisces - if you jump in and try to help others this week [whether in person or online] then make sure they require your assistance before you begin. Otherwise you could end up playing the martyr in a rather messy situation. With Neptune [your power planet] now going direct, it’s time to stop being distracted by dead-end detours and instead, get yourself some firm direction. This week the universe offers you a cosmic compass so make sure you use it.
