Overview

Psychologically, this can be a breakthrough day for many. The Sun sextiles Chiron, shining a positive, healing light onto past trauma and enabling us to learn from it with grace and ease. For the Air signs, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, this aspect encourages talk therapy or a heart-to-heart talk with a loved one. For all of us, this energy is about healing and the easing of pain. Looking ahead, June begins on a diplomatic note, with the Libra Moon encouraging fair play and politeness.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


You might sense disapproval or displeasure coming your way from other people today. Generally speaking, most people are more reserved and self-disciplined now than usual. If you don't fall in line with their prim and proper behavior, they might look askance at you. In a professional or other formal setting, this could be a problem. But if you're just out and about, being yourself, who cares what others think?

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


Sometimes -- okay, often -- you like to treat yourself well. Shopping can be a dangerous prospect, and so can eating out! But today is an excellent time to get back on track in these or any other areas, if you feel you've been excessive lately. You're much more self-disciplined than usual. You can tap into a grounded, practical energy that's perfect for moving forward in a conscious way, taking carefully planned steps.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


Today it may seem as if people are placing too much emphasis on trivial details. Does process really matter that much? The answer, at least at the moment, is that yes, it does matter. Your best bet is simply to do your best. If your employer gives you a project, don't take any shortcuts. Even creative thinking isn't the best idea now. A traditional, methodical approach is so much more favorable.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


You have great respect for tradition -- the people who have gone before you and established proper protocol or logical rules to follow. Today, you can show your respect for tradition by staying within those lines. Straying outside the boundaries of acceptable behavior isn't favored now. But that's not really you, anyway. You actually enjoy rules and step-by-step processes. They make life easier, comfortable and organized.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


It's important to be thorough in everything you do. Cutting corners today means you'll redo something tomorrow. But paying close attention to craftsmanship, on the other hand, will bring you great satisfaction. This taps into your artist's soul -- the part of you that appreciates style, beauty and fine lines. And you can bring this principle to your life no matter what your job or hobby might be.

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


Make short-range or longer-term plans today. You feel grounded and centered. Your perspective is at its most practical. You know your limits, and you can see areas of your life that may have gotten out of hand. Being able to identify a point of excess helps you trim it back to a reasonable level. Spend time today getting things in order, or setting out logical steps toward that end.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


Work should go well today, and conversations are calm and intelligent. You're really using your mind, which feels like a great mental workout! Seek logic and efficiency in anything you do today. Streamline your routine as you run errands or work through your task list. It's a great time to impress your boss or a client, because your attention to detail is rarely more precise than it is today.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


You can see where other people have gotten a little sloppy or excessive in their habits. And you're always great at giving solid, compassionate advice to people who need it most. Today, this talent is especially strong. Many people are trying to live more frugally or healthfully now. And you have a way of offering support or advice that doesn't make them feel criticized. That's a real gift!

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


You tend to have less of a filter than some people between your thoughts and your words. And truthfully, that's part of your charm. You're honest and forthright, and people appreciate that about you. But this is one of those days when it's a good idea to watch what you say and how you say it. Do your best to make a good impression. Instead of speaking your mind, just smile and nod!

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


You're more health-conscious today than usual. It's a great time to get back on track with your diet or exercise. It's easy to spot when and how you may have slacked off. Just don't be too hard on yourself if you aren't as fit as you'd like to be, or if you need to improve your health for medical reasons. Just do your best to respect your body and your health.

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


Many people have higher standards today than usual. This might make your job tougher, but it also makes your work better. And that's certainly something you can appreciate. So whatever you're working on today, subject it to rigorous quality control inspections. Make sure you're doing the absolute best job you can do. No cutting corners or getting creative! Anything you work on now has to stand the test of time.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


Nervous energy abounds today. And you're like a sponge for other people's energy. If your coworker is stressed out, you'll feel stressed too in no time. If your spouse is tense, you'll soon start feeling knots in your own shoulders! It's days like this when it's most important to stay focused on your own tasks. Don't get caught up in trying to help everyone else with theirs. Put blinders on to stay sane!

Overview

There's a Virgo Moon today, so in theory we're very grown-up and behaving diligently. In practice, however, the Moon opposes Mars, so there are a few rebels screaming to be free of the prim and proper Virgo vibe. The Earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, need to take care not to allow careless accidents through too much rushing. For all signs, impatience will increase as the day wears on. Looking ahead, Tuesday could be a fraught day for love, as Retrograde Venus squares up to Mars.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


Today it's wise to control your exuberant energy and channel it into some useful activity. This might mean working hard at your job or at some personal project. It might also mean fine-tuning your health regimen or your budget. Though you may find this tedious, the current energy really lends itself to this type of pursuit. Just think: Once you've gotten things in order, you can relax again.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


You're truly in your element today. Your perspective is even more logical than usual, which grounds you in the here and now. You can serve as an anchor for anyone in your life who isn't feeling so serenely on top of things. If nothing else, you can be an example for them. You're moving through your task list with such efficiency, you make even tedious tasks look easy!

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


Today, life is all about the details. With your keen eye and sharp mind, spotting the small stuff shouldn't be a problem. On the contrary, it's sweating it that could be the issue now! It's easy to get stuck on something minor that really doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. Alternatively, you might face so many minor issues that you quickly become overwhelmed. Try to keep a sense of perspective!

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


Pay attention to your health today. It's a great day for starting a new health regimen or recommitting to the one you've already established. Physical well-being is a big part of living a long, functional life. So eat right and get some exercise. Go to bed on time, so you can get quality sleep. Then you'll wake up refreshed in the morning, ready for any challenges life throws your way.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


Today you're interested in clean, simple living. Hard work and physical exercise both ground you in your body, which is a very good thing right now. Stretching your muscles reminds you of what you're capable of, when you use both your body and your mind. Treat yourself right now. Simple, balanced meals and solid sleep are key. If you cover all these bases today, you're sure to feel even better tomorrow.

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


Focus today on streamlining some process or organizing some area of your life. Issues of health and finance are especially important now. Getting your budget, diet or exercise regimen in order might be a very good place to start. Alternatively, you may want to focus on timesaving techniques at work, or subject your daily routine to an efficiency assessment. While cutting corners isn't a good idea now, trimming the fat certainly is.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


Today you may find yourself focused on some aspect of your health regimen. If so, it's a great time to reintroduce balance to your diet, your exercise routine, or any other area that may have gotten out of hand. After all, you love indulging in pleasures like relaxation or delicious treats. But you also know you can have too much of a good thing! Recommit to a life of healthy equilibrium.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


Clear thinking comes easily to you today. Often you view life through a highly emotional lens, but now you're more in touch with your rational side. This enables you to make solid, methodical progress on a project, because you don't let your feelings get in the way of what needs to be done. You can also assess your plans for the future, determine their feasibility, and make any necessary changes.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


You're a big-picture person, which could make today a bit of a challenge. Life and the universe may seem to conspire to push you into dealing with minor details that you'd rather ignore. If this happens, try not to let it get under your skin! Just do your best to get the particulars in order. Stay as organized as possible, and keep an eye out for any opportunity to fix or improve things.

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


It's a great day to impose order on some area of your life that could use a little upkeep. This might mean tackling that pile of papers that needs to be filed, streamlining your budget, or anything else that will help you manage your daily affairs more easily. Place special emphasis on being orderly and methodical. Keep your living and work spaces clean and free of clutter. This helps you clear your mind.

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


Details seem extra important today. In your work, it could be tough not to become bogged down in particulars. It's good to tie up any loose ends, especially if you're in the final stages of a project. But do try to remember the phrase 'Don't sweat the small stuff.' If some point isn't working, set it aside. Move on to larger issues. The big picture is important, too.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


Attention to detail can be tough for you, but that's what's required today. You might not have any downtime for daydreaming, as logic and routine prevail. But this is a temporary situation, and your best bet is just to ride it out. Stay as focused as you can, and be efficient in all you do. This applies to running errands, working, and even communicating. Clarity and reason count for a lot now!

Overview

This is an incredibly productive day under the guidance of a Moon-Saturn trine. Whether you're powering ahead with household chores, catching up at work or enjoying a favorite hobby, there will be a real sense of satisfaction by the end of the day, so keep going! The Air signs, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, are set to enjoy this dynamic vibe to the full. Looking ahead, a Sun-Venus conjunction on Wednesday is the perfect excuse for treats and indulgence.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


Do your best today not to let an irritable mood get the better of you. Try to get along with your friends and family. Focus on being content from the inside out. That way, you won't spoil the good feelings surrounding you with rude or domineering behavior. Of course, being insincere won't work, either -- your loved ones know you too well for that! So think of one thing you're genuinely happy about. That's a good start.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


You keep wanting to treat yourself to indulgences both great and small. What has happened to whet your appetite for luxury? Whatever it is, your yen for life's many little pleasures could get you into trouble today, if you aren't careful. It might help you realign your priorities if you put your extra spending money toward a gift for someone you love, or toward a charity for those who are less fortunate than you.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


Yesterday's fun continues today. Spending time with your favorite people feels wonderful, so gather family and friends for an impromptu party, and tell funny stories to make everyone laugh. You can also flex your creative muscles by dreaming up innovative decorations for your home, or making a gift for someone you care about. With those clever hands of yours, you can create something unique that they'll remember forever.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


Conflict and disharmony are two of your least favorite things, but you may have to face them today. If so, stay calm and focus on forgiveness, instead of unleashing criticisms and hurt feelings. Your instinct might be simply to run from these issues and hide in the comfort of your own home. This could work, unless the conflict is with someone in your family. Try to take a balanced view and talk it out.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


If you've experienced any tension recently in any of your friendships or other personal relationships, this is a good day to talk things out and find a resolution. You're feeling kind, affectionate and balanced, which means you're ready to take your own share of responsibility in whatever has been going on between you. It's easier than usual to listen to your friend's feelings without taking them personally, so take advantage of this gentle energy.

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


If you spent yesterday having a good time, turn your focus today toward your responsibilities at home or in your relationships. Balance is especially important now, and it's always good to cover all your bases. A personal connection may need some attention; if so, talk things over and see if you can reach an agreement together. This should be easy, as long as you let the other person know how much you care.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


Spend the day with someone you care about. Your friendships, partnerships and personal connections are very important to you, and it's a great day for letting the people you love know how you feel about them. Why not be creative about this? You can make a handmade, personalized card for someone, and write a poem or a heartfelt sentiment inside. The personal touch makes any gift that much more special.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


You're feeling more easygoing than usual, happy to connect with friends and family in an open, balanced way. Your loved ones make you laugh, and you appreciate their company at a level that you might not normally. Even arguments don't get overly heated, because you're being generous and diplomatic instead of insisting on your own point of view. You'll probably notice that other people seem to feel much closer to you, too.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


Your sense of justice comes to the fore today. A conversation has you acting as negotiator, helping everyone focus on the principle of the matter instead of the various details that don't really matter in the grand scheme of things. This is you at your best -- thinking on your toes, coming up with workable theories that broaden other people's minds and make them look at life in a new way.

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


Take a look around you. You'll probably see many people who are laughing, talking and having fun together. So why do you have such a long face? If you're feeling nervous about something, remind yourself that life isn't only about working hard, building your reputation and getting ahead. Those things are important, but the most important aspect of life is spending time with the people you care about most.

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


Since your creativity is even stronger today than usual, it's a good day to get together with friends, either for fun and laughter or, better yet, to do a creative project together. You're used to being on your own, and you can work on a project alone, of course -- but the stimulation of company and conversation is so much more fun! You can brainstorm ideas together and come up with something truly imaginative.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


Decision-making is tough today. You want everyone to get along, and you're intuitive enough to pick up on the feelings and needs of almost everyone around you. That wonderful quality can become a problem on days like this, when you can't move forward on a certain matter. The only fix is to stop worrying about everyone else and focus on you, but that runs against your nature. Try to make a decision, Pisces.
Week of May 24, 2020

Overview

Communications are complex this week, as Mercury forms an aspect pattern with both Jupiter – who over-promises – and Neptune – who confuses and deceives. We should all take care to communicate clearly and to seek clarification from those communicating with us.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


Your focus and concentration get a boost this week, so it's good for pushing through, meeting deadlines, and getting work done. A busy home week could mean lots of entertaining, but you'll be quite glad when the guests have gone.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


Multi-taking is easier if you're highly organized, so start making those lists! An exceptionally busy week finds you in high demand at work and at home, but you can easily stay on top of everything if you carefully prioritize.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


Put your whimsical mind to good use by creating an alternative income stream through arts and crafts of some kind. You're more talented than you realize in this area, and you've certainly got the skills to sell your work.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


This is a light-hearted week for you Cancer, and you'll enjoy conversations with friends and family, setting the world to rights. Be aware of an increased tendency to worry, however; you may find it more difficult than normal to sleep.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


Guilt and regret pay you a visit this week, and it could be a challenge to stay positive under those circumstances. Talk things over with someone you love and trust. It's important to understand that the past is gone - but the future is yours.

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


There are plenty of extremely bright ideas whirling around in your brain right now - your challenge is getting them out of your head and into practice. Take small but positive steps towards this every day. Little by little, you'll get there.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


You speak with some degree of authority this week and people are listening to you. Make sure that what you say is both truthful and important. Avoid gossip at all costs, because you know the damage it can do.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


Details may escape you this week. You'll know exactly how to end poverty and eliminate world debt, but picking the kids up from school may be a trick too far for you. Make lots of lists and get some help with the important things!

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


Listen to what your instincts tell you about people. You're talented at picking up intuitive signals and you can now see right through to someone's inner motive. It may not be a pretty sight, but it's better that you know.

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


Negotiation and cooperation are your strong points right now, which is slightly unusual as you are often more of a lone wolf. In business and at work, you can make a strong team player - take advantage of this while it lasts!

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


You have an excellent grasp of detail at the moment, but sometimes you're missing the bigger picture. Don't get so obsessed or involved with something that you forget why it's important in the first place. Take a step back and get perspective.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


This is an unusually competitive week for you, Pisces, and you feel it's important to win. You're working extremely hard to that end, whether it's your career, a sport or a contest of some kind. Keep going. You're closer to victory than you know.

Overview

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


The Lunar Eclipse during the Full Moon on June 5th asks you to think about a recent adventure or journey; something is left undone from this event, and it matters. Between June 6th and 13th, your priority should be understanding what you have learned recently about your spiritual purpose in this lifetime. The Sun squares up to Mars on June 6th and your impatience may be at breaking point, but don't give up. You don't have all of the facts yet, but more will become clear during the Sun-Neptune square on June 11th and the mid-month Mars-Neptune conjunction on June 13th. When Mercury turns retrograde on June 18th, it's the perfect time to reflect on your childhood or your past.

The solstice and the Solar Eclipse on June 21st are further opportunities to learn from what has happened before. If you don't, you'll end up repeating certain lessons again and again. It's time to heal from family trauma and to forgive yourself and others for decisions you unknowingly made years ago. Use the reflective period offered by Neptune's retrograde, which begins on June 23rd, to come to grips with this. Your patience will be rewarded on June 27th when Mars, your ruling planet, returns to your sign.

A burst of confidence, optimism, and positivity will more than make up for the month's other frustrations and delays, and an important Jupiter-Pluto conjunction on June 30th heralds long-awaited career success. You're in the right place at the right time - now go for it!

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


It may be time to re-think your long-term objectives this June. The Lunar Eclipse on June 5th finds you suffering from some guilt and regret, but it's important not to dwell on this for long. A tense square between the Sun and Mars on June 6th highlights areas where you have failed to meet your objectives so far, perhaps due to financial constraints. This isn't a great feeling, but it's important to be able to understand where you currently are on your path. That clarity of mind matters, because your monthly horoscope forecasts that things are about to get confusing.

A square from the Sun to Neptune on June 11th muddies the waters, and Mars' conjunction with Neptune on June 13th makes you turn your anger towards yourself. However, none of this is your fault. You've done the best you can with what you have. Get rid of guilt and instead, as Mercury turns retrograde on June 18th, focus on revisiting your positive qualities, skills, and undoubted abilities. The solstice and the Solar Eclipse on June 21st are positive moments for you.

You'll be able to think more clearly now about where you want to head and how you can get there. Neptune's retrograde period, beginning on June 23rd, will help you to judge which of your objectives were mere illusions, versus what you truly want for yourself. By the time Mars arrives in your spiritual zone on June 27th, you'll have a much better understanding of your life purpose. A stunning conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto on June 30th will help you take early steps towards manifesting something special.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


You're set to learn a lot about your career ambitions during June, Gemini, but there will be some financial blips along the way. Your monthly horoscope begins with a Lunar Eclipse in your love zone, which urges you to keep your loved ones up to speed with your plans. However, the following day, June 6th, a tense Sun-Mars square highlights your personal frustration in your work-life and how you feel side-lined or unappreciated in your career. This frustration may only increase during the following week, Gemini, when the Sun squares Neptune on June 11th, and then Mars conjuncts Neptune on June 13th. Avoid doing anything drastic at this time, however, as your thinking is foggy and confused.

Mercury turns retrograde in your money, values, and resources zone on June 18th, which traditionally suggests a temporary slowdown in your income. In practice, however, this gives you the chance for a skills audit - discover what your strongest skills are and learn to value yourself instead of expecting others to cheerlead for you. The solstice and the Solar Eclipse in your money zone on June 21st will help you to understand how your value does not solely depend on how much you earn. In this way, you can re-think your career frustration, Gemini, and Neptune turning retrograde on June 23rd will help with this process. Mars arrives in your humanitarian zone on June 27th with a huge burst of energy, and you may then understand that what you do matters more than how much you are paid for it.

This paves the way for a big jump in self-understanding on June 30th, when Jupiter conjuncts Pluto.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


The Lunar Eclipse on June 5th highlights a situation where you refused to conform to the expected way of doing things, probably at work. It's the fallout from this which makes you angry on June 6th, when the Sun squares up to Mars and you feel as though your freedom and independence are being threatened. In truth, it's not your freedom at stake here, but your values, ideas, beliefs, and opinions that are being challenged, especially on June 11th when the Sun squares Neptune, and June 13th when Mars conjuncts Neptune. You may feel as though you are being backed into a corner and expected to defend your values. When Mercury turns retrograde on June 18th, take the opportunity to go back over your views and to see if you, or they, have changed in any way.

The Solar Eclipse in your own sign on June 21st will help you see the light on this, and you may realize that your opinions are outdated or mistaken. It takes courage to admit that, but you're willing to do the philosophical work required. As Neptune turns retrograde in your house of philosophy on June 23rd, you're growing stronger as an individual. Mars' arrival in your career zone on June 27th is a breath of fresh air, a burst of positivity, and a fresh new challenge for you to embrace. Finally emerging from the confusing quagmire created earlier in the month, you're bright, breezy, and ready to go now.

Look out for an exciting and fortunate opportunity in love as Jupiter conjuncts Pluto on June 30th.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


June overall has something of a selfish flavor for you, Leo, but you'll gain valuable insights into humility as the month goes on. It begins with a Lunar Eclipse in your risk zone, highlighting a situation where you took a chance but didn't want to deal with the consequences. The following day, when the Sun squares Mars, there could be anger around, especially from someone who helped you but to whom you appeared ungrateful. Between June 11th and 13th, you may feel confused, irritated, or worried by the concept of being indebted to other people, whether financially, emotionally, or morally. You aren't naturally a selfish sign, but as the Sun squares Neptune and Mars conjuncts Neptune, you'll start to wish that you didn't have to deal with anyone else.

The remedy for this psychological unease could be some time alone. When Mercury turns retrograde in your privacy zone on June 18th, it's an invitation to spend time in meditation, prayer, or just a quiet retreat, working things out in your mind. The Solar Eclipse on June 21st is also in your privacy zone, which also affects your spirituality - this is a chance to come to grips with who you think you are, and how you want to be. Your period of reflection ends quite abruptly on June 27th, when Mars arrives in your adventure zone and considerably lightens your frame of mind. Stronger and more secure in who you are, it's now time for some fun.

A stunning Jupiter-Pluto conjunction in your health zone on June 30th also brings good news about your wellbeing.

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


During June, you may find that your closest relationship must take a backseat to your social life or your wider community commitments. The Lunar Eclipse in your family zone on June 5th highlights how your time is not really your own right now, and responsibilities are calling. Tensions between your working life and your love life are evident on June 6th, during a tense Sun-Mars standoff, and again on June 11th, when the Sun squares Neptune. On June 13th, when Mars conjuncts Neptune, you can expect some magical moments with your partner, but tension may reoccur when your other commitments become clear. Mercury turns retrograde in your social zone on June 18th, and this is where you'll have to start putting in extra work if you want to maintain a friendship or follow through on your community promises.

The Solar Eclipse on June 21st also occurs in your community zone and highlights unpleasant consequences if you neglect this side of your life. With Neptune turning retrograde a couple of days later in your love zone, you'll need to tactfully explain the situation to your sweetheart. Don't worry; on June 27th, Mars arrives in your passion zone, and this exotic, sensual vibe will help greatly in soothing over tensions in love. Indeed, on June 30th, a lovely Jupiter-Pluto conjunction in your joy zone suggests that now is a great time for getting pregnant, or otherwise cementing your happiness together.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


It's important to keep at least one foot firmly on the ground this June. The Lunar Eclipse during the Full Moon on June 5th occurs in your thinking zone and suggests that you're not being entirely realistic, which can lead to disappointment. Indeed, the following day, a tense square between the Sun and Mars highlights a situation where your idealism doesn't sit well alongside the day-to-day practicalities of life: what you ideally want is simply not doable right now. This issue raises itself again on June 11th, when the Sun squares Neptune, and again, potentially with ill-temper to match, on June 13th when Mars conjuncts Neptune. You are not thinking clearly, or your judgement is clouded.

When Mercury turns retrograde in your career zone on June 18th, it's a good time to reflect and reconsider. What are your objectives, really? Are you sure? The Solar Eclipse on June 21st is also in your career zone and asks you to be very sure about where you're heading, before it's too late to change direction. With Neptune turning retrograde on June 23rd in your reality zone, this is an important moment to weigh up what is genuinely possible versus what is not.

Look for help from your sweetheart after June 27th, when passionate Mars arrives in your love zone; your partner will want to support your dreams, no doubt. Likewise, a very lucky Jupiter-Pluto conjunction in your family zone on June 30th suggests that family support could play a large role in the decisions you make next.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


Your approach to risk is due for an overhaul, and this June is likely to provide it. We start with the Lunar Eclipse in your money zone on June 5th, which could bring a shock or the need to face an uncomfortable truth about your finances. Hot on the heels of this, on June 6th, the Sun squares up to Mars in an ill-tempered link between your house of risk and your house of debt. On June 11th, this issue is raised again, when the Sun squares up to Neptune, suggesting there is some confusion or deception in the mix. Finally, when Mars conjuncts Neptune on June 13th, anger may spill over - but what can be done about it?

Surprisingly, Mercury retrograde may have some answers. This period, which begins on June 18th, asks you to re-think your approach to education. You may have been over-confident in issues of money or investment, but this is your chance to learn and improve by managing these issues. The Solar Eclipse in your education zone on June 21st provides a catalyst - something crucial that you need to learn becomes clear at this point. A few days later, on June 23rd, Neptune turns retrograde in your risk zone, giving you breathing space to re-think your attitude.

Your June horoscope ends on a much more positive note, with Mars arriving in your health and wellbeing zone on June 27th, giving you a real upsurge in vitality and energy. A very fortunate conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto on June 30th suggests that new ideas and fresh initiatives you are planning will be very well received.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


Personal independence is a key theme for you this June, Sagittarius, because the month begins with a Lunar Eclipse during a Full Moon in your own sign on June 5th. This may bring about a minor crisis of identity, or simply frustration that you are somehow not allowed to be the real you. There is likely a familial or parental connection here, as the tense Sun-Mars square on June 6th centers around conflict between your relationship and the rest of your family. Be careful not to over-react, because this could be a simple misunderstanding. With the Sun squaring Neptune on June 11th and Mars conjunct Neptune on June 13th, the real issue within the family may be much more subtle.

During the Mercury retrograde period, which begins on June 18th, you'll have a chance to re-think your approach to forgiveness, blame, and guilt. This could be a healthy time to seek therapy regarding any lingering family issues from the past. The Solar Eclipse in June 21st helps put all of this into perspective and supports your right to break free from the patterns of the past and to be your own person. When Neptune turns retrograde in your family zone on June 23rd, you will be able to lay some ghosts to rest for good. A brighter, less complicated energy sets in for the end of the month, when Mars breezes into your joy zone on June 27th, bringing our your fun-loving side and ending the navel-gazing.

This is followed by a very lucky financial conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto on June 30th - time to get back to work.

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


Thinking is a little bit muddled this June, so take your time dwelling over decisions and important communications. The Lunar Eclipse on June 5th occurs in your spiritual zone, so don't be surprised if you find yourself drawn more and more towards the esoteric side of life. However, your ideas don't find favor with everyone, especially at work, and a tense Sun-Mars square on June 6th pits your own philosophies against those of your colleagues. You don't have all of the facts, so don't leap to conclusions, especially on June 11th, when the Sun squares Neptune, or on June 13th when Mars conjuncts Neptune. Mercury turns retrograde in your love zone on June 18th, so this is another indication that you need to take care of how you communicate with those important to you.

With a Solar Eclipse in your love zone on June 21st, tensions may be riding high and simple misunderstandings could easily escalate beyond control. Mean what you say and say what you mean, because sincerity is vital right now. When Neptune turns retrograde in your communication zone on June 23rd, social media may become an issue - be careful not to over-share. There is better news and certainly more mental clarity towards the end of the month. Mars roars into your family zone on June 27th, bringing energy, a sense of fun, and a spirit of adventure to family life.

Meanwhile, an important and very fortunate Jupiter-Pluto conjunction on June 30th should be a tremendous boost to your confidence.

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


Confusion over finances or skills could curtail some of your plans this June. You may have big ideas regarding your social life, but as the Lunar Eclipse in your social zone on June 5th suggests, it's important not to run before you can walk. A tense standoff between the Sun and Mars on June 6th highlights conflict between what you want to do for fun and what you can afford to do. This theme continues June 11th, when the Sun squares Neptune, and on June 13th when Mars conjuncts Neptune - be very careful not to waste money you can't afford to lose, or take financial risks beyond your means. When Mercury turns retrograde on June 18th, it's a good time to look more carefully at your schedule and daily time management skills.

You may need to learn something new in order to get the most from your day, or perhaps it's time to take on some extra training. A Solar Eclipse on June 21st in your everyday work zone suggests that something must give - you only have 24 hours in your day, just like everyone else. With Neptune turning retrograde in your skills zone on June 23rd, could it be that you have over-estimated your ability to handle particular projects? Mars arrives in your intelligence zone on June 27th with a huge burst of new ideas and new innovations; this is a good sign and shows that you'll be able to get things quickly back on track. However, don't neglect your spiritual life - a very fortunate Jupiter-Pluto conjunction on June 30th highlights hidden abilities you didn't know you had.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


Confidence issues need careful handling this June, Pisces. Remember that you are never alone, and that those who love you are always willing to help - if you let them in. A tense Lunar Eclipse in your career zone on June 5th may put you in the spotlight, whether you like it or not, and you may judge yourself harshly at this time. A standoff between the Sun and Mars on June 6th highlights how memories of the past can be unhelpful; instead of looking to the future, you're blaming yourself for things you can no longer change. On June 11th and 13th, you may feel quite down and perhaps confused too, as the Sun squares Neptune and then Mars conjuncts Neptune.

Talking to others is vital at this time - don't bottle things up. The Mercury retrograde period, which begins on June 18th, is surprisingly helpful to you as it highlights your creativity and creates time and space during which you can practice self-care and heal via art. With the Solar Eclipse in June 21st also occurring in your creativity zone, don't under-estimate the power of your imagination and your creative drive. As Neptune retrogrades in your own sign on June 23rd, you may enjoy using creative means to get your message out to the wider world. There's good financial news as June heads to a close - Mars drives forward into your money zone, motivating you to increase your income, potentially via this creativity you've unleashed.

Friends will rally around too, and a lovely Jupiter-Pluto conjunction on June 30th is especially fortunate for your social life.

2018

Possibly the biggest astrological news of 2018 is likely to be the arrival of Uranus in Taurus, in May; the last time Taurus hosted Uranus was during the Great Depression, ahead of the Second World War. The rebel planet’s sign change suggests a major world shift may occur in realms traditionally associated with Taurus, such as the earth, the environment and the financial system – and such a change is unlikely to happen smoothly. Once Uranus turns retrograde in August, change imposed too quickly from above could lead to protests and even violence. Three squares between aggressive Mars and Uranus, in May, August and September, are potential flashpoints to take seriously.

The upheaval associated with Uranus’s sign change may however be softened by two beautiful trines between Jupiter and Neptune, in May and August. This energy brings great generosity of spirit, and a collective sense of spirituality and justice which may help us to “do the right thing” even when choices are tough.

Another anchor in a potentially turbulent year is the grand trine aspect in August between the Virgo Sun, Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. The earth sign energies involved here bring common sense to the debate, and act as a catalyst for sensible change, rather than headlong chaos. It’s interesting that this grand trine involves Uranus, a planet associated with the future, and Saturn, a planet associated with the past: perhaps we can after all build a bridge between what has already happened and what has yet to happen, given goodwill on all sides.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


Overview

What are friends for? Quite a lot, if you’re an Aries in 2018. There’s a strong emphasis on your friendship zone throughout this year, and most particularly in the second half of 2018. Expect to find your social life becoming increasingly important, with friends rallying round to support you through your lower points and to cheer on your successes too.

There’s an adventurous vibe to your year too. As Uranus turns direct in Aries in January, you start to feel back on safer ground after a tumultuous 2017. You being you, however, safer ground gets boring after a while, so the search for new challenges begins. March should be the perfect month for taking on more than you ever previously dared, when Mars, your ruling planet, teams up with ahead-of-its-time Uranus to push the boundaries, inspiring you to dream big. Don’t go crazy, though. Your urge to show off makes you your own worst enemy in July, when the Sun opposes Mars and highlights risks which could prove unwise or even dangerous.

Overall, this is a year for growing on a personal level, and for seeking out fresh, new and exciting projects. A word of caution: watch your temper in May, August and September, when your ruler Mars squares up to Uranus, promising fireworks and drama which you may not always be able to control.

Love

If you’re single and looking for love, March brings about opportunities to meet someone very interesting. The second Full Moon that month falls in your love zone, so any new attraction may develop very quickly, taking your breath away for all the right reasons! If you’re already in a stable relationship, compromise is likely to be important. This is not a year for getting your own way – at least, not all the time. During the Venus retrograde period in October, it’s especially important to listen to your sweetheart, and to actively seek win-win solutions which work for you both.

However fresh or established your relationship, expect your mutual spiritual understanding to deepen considerably in December, when Mars your ruler teams up with gentle, romantic Neptune. A sense of having met before will underpin any new relationships formed at this time; if you’ve been together for some while, you may find yourself suddenly realizing that your destiny has been linked through previous lifetimes as well as this one.

For those who are feeling unlucky in love, or going through a rough period in a relationship, friends are important in saving your sanity. With so much activity in your friendship zone, be sure to make time for your own friendships, even when you and your sweetheart are loved up and intent on spending time together. Maintaining your own identity and your own social links will help you to feel strong – and loved – no matter what the future holds.

Work

Feeling lucky? You should be! A fortunate break comes your way in January, as Mars and Jupiter combine to bring about financial or business success. Keep your eyes open for new opportunities at this time, and don’t be afraid to take a leap of faith. Importantly, however, keep a grip on your spending. Other parts of the year may be more troublesome than this early period, and you’ll need to hold something in reserve, financially.

One such trickier period is April and May. In April, serious, sober Saturn and disruptive Pluto both turn retrograde in your career zone. For a time, it may feel as though your luck has run out, and there could be obstacle after obstacle in your path. Hang on in there. This isn’t your fault, and there’s nothing you could or should have done differently to avoid it. You are simply being tested and stretched. As Uranus moves into your money zone in May, the surprises continue, and unexpected bills are highly likely.

Fortunately, August sees Uranus turn retrograde for the rest of the year, giving you some breathing space to get back on track. Northern Hemisphere Summer vibes should also help sort out work-life balance issues, so that you can get more quality time with your family while still earning well and moving forwards in life. A Sun-Uranus opposition in October highlights how you use – or waste - your scarce resources. Figure out a budget, cut back on excess and take a more sensible approach to work and money. This new attitude will serve you very well indeed.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


Overview

Buckle your seatbelt, Taurus, this year could be quite a ride! One of the galaxy’s biggest hitters, Uranus, is about to move into your sign, having spent the last seven years in Aries. The last time Uranus was in Taurus was over eighty years ago, so this big news indeed. When this shift happens in May, life may well be briefly turned upside down – but from the chaos, good things will emerge. Think of it as a learning curve; you don’t necessarily want this lesson, but looking back on it in later years you will most definitely be glad of the experience.

There are other major indications of change in your 2018 chart too. A grand trine in August occurs between the Sun in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in your own sign – here the three earth signs join forces in a very positive way to embrace the new and to break free from the old. If you’ve felt stuck in a rut over the last couple of years, this will be music to your earthy ears. As a general rule, you don’t “do” change, but when you must, you like to get used to new situations gradually and constructively, and that’s exactly what this energy will bring.

All in all, 2018 looks to be a year which puts you in the driving seat, and allows you to make some very valuable changes to your life and your lifestyle. You won’t necessarily get it all your own way, however. Not for nothing is Uranus known as the Rebel Planet! When warrior Mars squares up to Uranus – three times, no less, in May, August and September – you may well feel as though you’re losing control and being buffeted by unseen forces. Hang on in there. The ship will stabilize, and you will be back in charge, right where you belong.

Love

Springtime in the Northern Hemisphere looks set to be a playful time for your love life. Whether you’ve been together for years or are just starting out, remember to make things fun. Re-ignite the spark, if necessary, and seek some spontaneity in romance. A helpful Full Moon in March should see passions smoulder, and this is a fantastic time for being swept off your feet!

As summer above the equator gets underway, however, be sure to appreciate what you have with your partner. With Jupiter turning retrograde in the most flirtatious zone of your chart, it’s all too easy for you to take your lover for granted, and perhaps even to look elsewhere. That would be a mistake. Be sure you know what you’re risking if you do decide to play away. There’s a sense here that romantic upsets may well be your own fault, so get good at apologizing, fast.

During August in particular, as Uranus turns retrograde in your sign, you may become bored of your sweetheart, especially if your relationship lacks sparkle and is well past that first flush of love. Fortunately, two beautiful trines between Jupiter and Neptune, one in May and one in August, help to remind you how much you have to lose and see you back on track. This year, it’s all about learning to value your sweetheart for what you already have together, rather than hankering after something else.

Work

The theme of change this year is very relevant in your working life. As well as Uranus moving into your sign, giving you the courage to try a surprising new direction, we also find go-getting Mars in your career zone for a good six months this year. Ambitions should be running high, but you may feel that you are being overlooked or not being given due credit for your work. If you feel that you have outgrown your position or that you are not being appreciated, by all means look to move on.

Most of the year is favorable for job hunting and for success in interviews and tests. Expect to reach a major decision on this front in July or August, perhaps prompted by the Lunar Eclipse in your career zone early in July. Something may happen which forces your hand, or which makes you more determined than ever to try something different. However, your confidence may take a bit of a hit at the same time, particularly when Mars is retrograde, during July and August. The Northern Hemisphere’s spring and fall are therefore the best times for making your move.

One slight word of caution: beware of coming across as too quirky or unconventional during May, August and September. At this time, Mars squares up to Uranus and these two strong-willed planets are not working in your favor. Tone down the rule breaking during these periods, and work hard on presenting a professional, approachable, trustworthy image.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


Overview

Astrologically speaking, 2018 is set to be a relatively quiet year for the Twins. A key theme will involve you balancing your desire to settle into a routine against your desire for adventure and change – because, as ever, you’re unlikely to make up your mind firmly on exactly what you want. A lot of planetary activity this year takes place in your higher education zone, so perhaps you can calm your wandering mind with a course of study or a new qualification of some kind.

In May, Uranus, the planet of surprise and rebellion, moves into your spiritual zone, where it will stay for the next several years. Don’t be surprised to find that you no longer feel quite at home in your current faith, and don’t be afraid to ask difficult questions and to explore your spirituality. There are no right or wrong answers, because the search for answers is the journey in itself. Be aware that family or friends may be unsettled by your changing beliefs, and this could cause some arguments in May, August or September – this is when Mars squares up to Uranus, so deeply held convictions will resist challenge or change.

Overall, it’s a year for learning and growing, and for expanding your mind and your spiritual horizons. A Lunar Eclipse in July could signal a sudden need for excitement, so expect a crazy couple of weeks sandwiched in-between periods of calmer, quieter progress.

Love

Passionate Mars spends the early part of the year in your love zone, so you can expect your relationship to be warm, spontaneous and a lot of fun. If you’re single, the first three months of 2018 are the ideal time for dating – but don’t set out with a preconceived idea of your perfect partner. Let things evolve and unfold. The last three months of the year are less helpful for single Geminis, as Venus turns retrograde. Turn to friendships and family instead, and stop trying too hard.

In an existing relationship, there’s a delicate balancing act to tread in February when career and work issues may eat into time available for love. Mars squares up to Neptune at this time, putting romance on the back burner, much to someone’s displeasure. A Full Moon in March could mark a rise in tensions at home, probably related to this work-life balance issue, but any ensuing argument will help to clear the air so that you can get back on track.

Watch out for control and jealousy issues in April, when Mars conjuncts Saturn in the sexiest part of your chart. Avoid using intimacy as a weapon, or being overly suspicious of your partner. Honesty and openness will help to avoid too much tension at this time.

Work

It’s a nose to the grindstone year – how much hard work are you prepared to put in? Financially, 2018 could be a little stretched, so you may find yourself needing or wanting to look at side hustles to increase your income. A Full Moon in your money zone in early January may mark a shock to the system; this is followed in June and July by two tricky oppositions from the Sun to Saturn and Pluto respectively, both of which indicate financial restraint, belt-tightening and perhaps some losses. The good news, however, is that this financial trouble is likely to inspire and motivate you, rather than scare you. You’ve got this.

You’re starting the year as you mean to go on, with a brilliant Mars-Jupiter conjunction in your daily work zone, which provides you with plenty of go-getting energy, and a rather nice helping of luck and good fortune too. So, whatever it is that the Full Moon brings, you’ll fight back. Good for you. Some of the fight back may involve having to knuckle down in a job you don’t really enjoy. When Jupiter turns retrograde in your daily work zone in March, you’ll be hanging on in there regardless, determined to stick it out.

Your tenacity and perseverance will pay off. Bountiful Jupiter joins forces with idealistic Neptune twice, in May and August, to boost both your ideas and your prospects. Even if finances are up and down, you look to be staying positive and upbeat, which will attract better fortunes your way. As the year closes in December, an excellent Mars-Neptune conjunction in your career zone indicates work which is both lucrative and fulfilling. Don’t give up on pursuing that dream job.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


Overview

You’ve spent a lot of time in recent years focusing on other people’s happiness and success, whether that’s at work or within your family and circle of friends. This year, it’s time to take care of yourself better, and to pay closer attention to your most intimate relationship. Batten down the hatches, and turn inwards to focus on what matters most.

The tone for 2018 is set early, with a powerful Full Moon in your own sign in January. This energy encourages you to be more assertive about your own wants and needs, and to learn the gentle art of saying “no” to others. It’s important in these first few months of the year to keep your private life private; the more you open up to others, the more helpful “advice” they will have, which will only serve to confuse you.

Travel beckons this year, especially as a tool for broadening your horizons and expanding your interests. In May and August in particular, two beautiful trines between your passion zone and your travel zone bring opportunities to discover something – or someone – to love. New experiences will enrich your life at any point this year, so don’t be afraid to take on new challenges. You have more courage than you know.

Love

Of all areas of your life, it’s your love life which will need the closest attention in 2018. A promising Mars-Jupiter conjunction in your passion zone heats up the temperature in January, but as the northern spring arrives, there are signs that your relationship may need some TLC. From April to September, both Saturn and Pluto are retrograde in your love zone, indicating power struggles and a real clash of wills. When Mars conjuncts Saturn in April, frustrations could come to a head.

The northern summer months are a time of re-assessment in your love life. That’s not as scary as it sounds. In an established relationship, intimacy issues will need some work during the Mars retrograde period in June, July and August. During this same period, the Cancer Sun opposes first Saturn and then Pluto in your love zone, so it’s important to put your own ego aside in order to listen to your partner and to acknowledge any problems. Turning a blind eye to relationship niggles will only make things worse, but with open and honest communication, the healing process can quickly get underway.

By the time October arrives, loving Venus is retrograde in your passion zone. Sounds like a bad thing, but actually this is one retrograde which you can embrace. This energy helps you to appreciate what and who you already have. Spend October and November re-imagining your relationship, ready to re-light the spark which drew you together in the first place. Perhaps it’s time for a second honeymoon?

Work

Financially, life looks set to be pretty stable during 2018, and you should be able to maintain or improve your current standard of living. There are some question marks, however, around what exactly you do to earn a living, and whether or not you could and should be doing something more emotionally satisfying. February is a good month to explore this: a square between Mars in your everyday work zone and idealistic Neptune in your philosophy zone highlights your humanitarian instincts. Could you take a sideways move into work which you might find more meaningful or worthwhile?

Ponder on that, but hold on a few months before you make the move. During March and April, Mercury is retrograde in your career zone, so these are not the best months for job hunting or for selling your skills. It is the perfect time for incubating ideas, however, so you can plan where you would like to be and find a way to get there. An inspirational trine between Mars and innovative Uranus will help you find an unusual angle or an ahead-of-its-time concept to run with. Work which combines technology with a social conscience will be especially rewarding for you this year.

The travel vibe I mentioned earlier is relevant to your working life too, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself traveling for work purposes. During May and August in particular, insight into other countries and cultures could help a great deal in terms of moving forwards in your career.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


Overview

2018 is a very family focused year for you, Leo. You’ll feel a strong desire to put down or deepen your roots, and you’ll want to spend as much time as possible with your nearest and dearest. If you are hoping to expand the family, a fantastic Mars-Jupiter conjunction in January suggests a new arrival could be on the way. Whether we’re talking baby or hamster here, you’re sure to have lots of love to give and lots of nurturing to do during the coming twelve months.

There are some definite surprises in store for your family life, however – especially with bountiful Jupiter in residence in your family zone for a good part of the year. 2018 could mark a turning point in family life, perhaps with a move to a bigger home, or to a smaller one if older kids are leaving the nest. There may be births, engagements or other excitement you weren’t expecting, but most of the surprises bring definite reasons to smile.

Be careful with your words from August onwards. Mercury turns retrograde in your sign and Uranus, the rebel planet, also retrogrades; this allows the surprises to settle and for a “new normal” to be established, but someone may be misinterpreting what you say or do, in a bid to create mischief. Stand your ground and be as open as possible in your communication style.

Love

Your closest relationship will benefit from the overall loving and family focused vibe this year. However, there are periods of the year where your work-life-family balance is out of synch with your partner, and this could cause some frustrations.

A square between passionate Mars and idealistic Neptune in February gives the first hint that one or both of you are wearing rose tinted glasses, and perhaps ignoring brewing discontent over family time. When Mars moves onto square volatile Uranus – three times, in May, August and September – the problem can no longer be ignored and tempers are likely to flare. In May, the Sun in your career zone opposes happy Jupiter in your family zone, indicating that something has to give. A Lunar Eclipse in your love zone in July may also suggest a crisis point.

Don’t panic. The key is to put ego aside and to find a compromise within your relationship, especially over each other’s careers and working life. The cosmos comes to your aid in this during August and September. In June, with idealistic Neptune turning retrograde, realism gets a bolder grip; with warrior planet Mars also turning retrograde, you have a chance to put conflict aside and to reach pragmatic solutions. By the time December arrives, your work-life balance should be much better and relationship tensions will have eased accordingly. Mars conjuncts romantic Neptune at this time in one of the most passionate areas of your chart, so it looks likely that you will end 2018 on a healing, loving and tender note.

Work

Your career looks likely to develop well in 2018, although as we have already seen, the time and attention you give to work could cause some frustrations in your home and family life. Overall, however, you are putting in a strong showing at work, and it seems likely that your leadership skills be will attracting praise. Innovative Uranus arrives in your career zone in May, where it will spend the next seven years or so – so this year could mark the start of a new chapter in your working life.

Unfortunately, not everyone is pleased for you. In April especially, work place jealousy or resentment is likely to cause some problems. Taskmaster Saturn and power-hungry Pluto are both retrograde in your everyday work zone at this time, and when Mars conjuncts Saturn, tempers at work may flare. Colleagues are likely to prove spiky and unreasonable at times – the best way to handle this is to keep your cool and simply get on with your job. Leave the office politics to those with time to waste.

A much more positive cosmic event is the grand trine in August, which takes place between the Sun in your money zone, Saturn in your everyday work zone and Uranus in your career zone – this should help with an innovative solution to the work-life balance issue, and may also set you off in an entirely new career direction. Exciting times lie ahead!

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


Overview

You’re starting 2018 in a very settled mode, Virgo – but perhaps a little bit too settled? You’re well within your comfort zone, but you get the sense that you’re simply treading water a lot of the time. All this is about to change, so put your brave pants on and start looking toward the future.

The first rumblings of change are likely to coincide with March’s Full Moon in your own sign. Suddenly, life looks a little bit samey, a little bit boring, and you’ll start to cast around for ways of switching things up. Come May, when Uranus arrives in your exploration zone, you’ll definitely notice itchy feet and a desire to challenge yourself. Trouble is, being an earth sign, you have a love-hate relationship with change of any kind. A tricky Mars-Uranus square occurs three times this year, in May, August and September, and each time you’ll struggle to reconcile your desire for change with your love of the status quo. Watch out during these periods for an urge to throw it all away and start again.

July is likely to bring something of a wakeup call in terms of your health and wellbeing, especially with the Lunar Eclipse in your health zone. It’s a fabulous time to look into your diet and exercise regime, and to start putting your own needs first. After a bumpy ride during the first half of 2018, you’ll become more comfortable with the pace of change from August onwards, when an earthy grand trine aspect helps you to be your own catalyst for change, rather than merely tolerating it.

Love

If your relationship is floundering, it won’t be helped by family interference in February, when a difficult Mars-Neptune square finds you being given deliberately misleading counsel on affairs of the heart. The northern hemisphere’s spring may also bring some tricky vibes, with Mars and Saturn going head to head in your passion zone, reigning in mutual attraction and making dating anyone new very tough going indeed.

The good news is that May and August could potentially be very special months for your love life. In both months, creative Jupiter trines romantic Neptune, suggesting that you’ll find a new or renewed creative and intellectual attraction with someone very interesting indeed. In June, Neptune turns retrograde in your love zone, highlighting karmic and spiritual links between you and your lover; you’ve known one another before, and it shows, in a good way.

The second half of the year is much better than the first for love and romance, although take care in September to stay grounded. An opposition between the Virgo Sun and Neptune suggests that idealism and escapism in love may be turning those glasses not just rose tinted but positively vivid pink. Keep it real. That way, as the end of the year rolls round, you’ll be able to enjoy a passionate Mars-Neptune conjunction in your love zone. This is what you’ve been waiting for, as your relationship moves to new and special heights.

Work

The first half of 2018 finds you going through the motions at work. You’re earning money, sure, but it’s very much “just a job” and not really lighting your fire. When colleagues become difficult or working conditions become uncomfortable in June, July and August, you may decide that enough is enough. Mars is retrograde in your everyday work zone at this time, so motivation to make that change is low, even though you’re not happy. However, in July a Sun-Mars opposition helps you to pluck up both the courage and the energy to make some changes.

August’s grand trine involves the Virgo Sun, Saturn and Uranus, all working together, creating exciting new work prospects for you – crucially with the opportunity to use your considerable creative abilities. Whatever you’re trained in and whatever career path you’re currently following, it’s stifling you. Look around and see what makes your heart beat a little bit faster. Follow your inspiration to unearth new job opportunities which could be tailor-made for your skills.

Don’t necessarily expect a new direction to pay off instantly, however. As Venus turns retrograde in your money zone in October and November, you may well end up taking a pay cut in order to get this new job or new venture off the ground. It’s a sacrifice, but it’s temporary. Hang on in there, because when you’re doing something you love, the rewards will come.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


Overview

Families can be funny things. Yours has been on quite the journey in recent years, but this has created a lot of baggage. During 2018 your family dynamics are set to change for the better, and this is also a year for forgiveness. Forgiving someone important for the wrong they have done to you frees up your emotional energy for healing and for moving forwards, so don’t hesitate to be magnanimous. You can afford to be, as you’re working from a position of emotional strength.

These energies get underway with a bang in April, when serious Saturn and power-hungry Pluto both turn retrograde in your family zone; at the same time, Mars goes head to head with Saturn, in an emotional tug of war from which there can be no winner. This could be a difficult period, but it’s important to remember that in life, everything changes. Nothing ever stays the same. Try to adapt to the changes and indeed, welcome them. You cannot cling to the past.

Things will get much easier in the northern summer months. August’s grand trine is a hugely positive indicator of emotional healing and these energies will prove to you that you can learn from the past, and that yes, you can forgive, if not forget. You’ll end the year with a sense of family togetherness. Although much water passes under the bridge this year, you still understand that you’ve got one another’s backs.

Love

Your love life may be experiencing a rough patch as the year gets underway, not helped by Mercury’s retrograde period at the end of March and into April – it could be difficult to get your words out, or to say what’s really in your heart. However, there’s a new lease of life coming in May, when rebellious Uranus arrives in the sexiest part of your chart, ushering in several adventurous months for your sexuality and your private life.

Whether this is your existing relationship being spiced up, or a brand new and very intense love affair, it will certainly make you smile. Be careful not to take things too far, however. In May, and again in August and September, passionate Mars squares up to Uranus, indicating tempestuous jealousy and the possibility of someone using sex as a weapon or as emotional blackmail. Steady on. Things may come to a head during a Lunar Eclipse in your passion zone in July; watch out for a moment which changes everything. With Mars turning retrograde around this time, it’s important to realize that some things are simply beyond your control.

Once Uranus turns retrograde in August, the intensity should start to lessen, which will be good for your nerves if nothing else! During the second half of the year, karmic and psychic links between you and your lover become more and more prominent, so you’ll end 2018 with a much deeper level of understanding than you thought possible.

Work

Although 2018 begins with your finances and career in reasonable shape, there could be some surprises in store. January’s lucky and creative Mars-Jupiter conjunction occurs in your money zone, so unexpected opportunities to make some money are very welcome. However, once Jupiter turns retrograde in March, money starts to be frittered away at a rather alarming rate. In June and July, you may come under pressure to lend money to a family member, or to bail out a kid in trouble. You’ll feel duty bound to help, even if it’s against your better judgement – and this could be expensive.

A new business venture or new job in the early northern hemisphere springtime starts well enough, but do rein in the risks you are taking. You may be over-reaching, either in terms of your ability or your finances. Don’t be tempted to bluff your way through, as you will be caught out. There’s better news in August, when a lovely Jupiter-Neptune trine indicates a bettering of your position, helped by your imaginative and creative pitch about what you’re worth.

Through sheer hard work and talent, you should be able to survive this year, even with family pressures, but do take expert advice with your finances. This is especially important in October, when a Sun-Uranus opposition suggests that your ego may get in the way of your financial or business judgement. Provided you can keep your spending and your risk-taking under control, you should end 2018 in a stronger position than you started – you’re heading in the right direction.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


Overview

How’s your health, Scorpio? Yes, your physical health is good. Great. But what about your mental health? During 2018, you’re being asked to take a good look at your emotional equilibrium and mental wellbeing, and to make some adjustments to help you truly feel at your best. It’s a slightly unpredictable year, with lots of planetary activity in and around your sign, but one thing I do know for sure is that 2018 is a great opportunity for your personal growth.

The year begins on a high, with a fantastic Mars-Jupiter conjunction in your sign, which boosts your confidence and enhances your personal image. This is take-on-the-world stuff, so don’t waste it! By the time March arrives, however, Jupiter is turning retrograde in Scorpio, and your sparkle becomes a little dimmed. There may be further blips and dips in your confidence later in the year too, especially in October, when personable Venus turns retrograde in your own sign, and in early December, when communicative Mercury does likewise.

However, interspersed with these down times, there are opportunities for you to work on yourself and to regain the upper hand. Sometimes you are your own worst enemy, but if you can practice positive habits at the beginning of the year and again mid-year, you will shore up your own self-belief, allowing you to make the most of the year’s more reflective periods for growth and self-understanding.

Love

In May, Uranus, the most rebellious and freedom-loving planet of all, arrives in your love zone, where it will stay for the next seven years or so. This is the beginning of a new era in your personal life – and the first stages may be quite shocking, unsettling or dramatic. In May and again in August and September, warrior planet Mars squares up to Uranus, pitting your love life against your family life in a series of uncomfortable showdowns. Don’t be surprised to find your blood family aghast at your relationship, and doing their best to interfere.

This theme of family interference is likely to continue through the northern summer. When Mars turns retrograde in your family zone between June and August, things may come to a head. In July, there is a potent Lunar Eclipse in your family zone, which may indicate a point of no return for one side of the argument. Stay calm, and do what is right for you.

Fortunately, from August onwards, the situation quietens down a little. Uranus turns retrograde in your love zone, reminding you that “normal” is good. Find peace in everyday life with your sweetheart and stop looking for the next fight. Apart from a difficult Sun-Uranus opposition in October, when your selfish streak may cause trouble in love, the signs are that the rest of the year will allow the dust to settle; you’ll find your feet slowly and your relationship will be all the stronger for what it has survived.

Work

Creativity at work goes hand in hand this year with a rather impulsive streak, which is quite unlike you. To successfully harness and develop your brilliant ideas, you’ll need patience and staying power, and the will to wait for the right moment. Mars and Uranus drive forwards innovation and invention in March, helping you find surprising solutions to old problems. Optimistic Jupiter in your sign gets an imaginative boost from Neptune in May and August, so these are also ripe times for creating a new venture or for marketing yourself well in your existing career - provided you don’t rush in without due care.

However, a difficult Mars-Neptune square in February activates your money zone and your risk zone. Hasty decisions on finances could come back to haunt you this year. Mercury turns retrograde in your career zone in August, so you may need to take a step back at this time. Plan your future path by all means, but don’t push ahead foolishly at a moment when the risks are too high. In November, reckless Mars squares up to Jupiter, again activating your money and risk zones, so watch out for someone who encourages you to throw caution to the wind, yet remains safely protected themselves.

If you can develop an instinct for good timing, there is much this year to suggest very satisfying career progress. Work to your own agenda and your own pace, and don’t allow yourself to be rushed. When the world is ready for you, you’ll know!

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


Overview

If there’s one message being shouted loud from the cosmos towards you this year, it’s this: stop coasting. You have been sitting back for a while now, reasonably comfy in your status quo but not really going places. This year, it’s time to make more and better use of your talents, and to push yourself well and truly out of your comfort zone.

Early on in the year, around February, you may face the weight of unrealistic family expectations, especially in how much you are expected to care for others. With warrior planet Mars in your own sign at this time, a clash with idealistic Neptune could lead to a lot of resentment or guilt. Make sacrifices where appropriate, but don’t allow other family members to escape their share of the responsibility. Between March and July, Jupiter turns retrograde in the most spiritual sector of your chart. This could be a time of spiritual crisis, and that sense of guilt is still hanging around your shoulders. Whether you have a particular faith or not, talk to those around you who share the same beliefs, and listen to the advice you receive.

It's in the northern summer where you will really feel the push to stretch yourself. A Lunar Eclipse in July highlights your education and training. Should you go back to school for a while? With Mars retrograde in your learning zone, the focus is on what you don’t yet know. Expand your mind. Take on more. Learn and grow. That’s where you’ll find true satisfaction.

Love

Communication doesn’t always come easily this year, especially with those you love the most. While family pressures mount, Mercury turns retrograde in your passion zone in March, so making time for your sweetheart proves difficult. The good news is that a fiery and flirtatious Mars-Uranus trine during this time heats things up nicely. You may not have much time together, but what time you do have you can certainly put to good use! Flirting and date nights will strengthen and shore up your closest relationship, helping to keep that sparkle alive.

If you’re single and looking for love, don’t look too far afield. The special someone you seek is probably right under your nose. A colleague, friend or casual acquaintance may suddenly become so much more, if only you open your eyes and realize what’s staring you in the face.

Whether you’re in an established relationship or not, the northern winter months look sure to be cozy. A beautiful Mars-Neptune conjunction in December is highly romantic. Occurring primarily in your family zone, this influence will also soften the family tensions which have been around all year, freeing up more time for you to spend with your absolute favorite person.

Work

This year is not without its financial challenges. You never know, though. Perhaps this is fate’s way of jolting you into action. Get up off that sofa and get working! A Full Moon in March in your career zone may well be the trigger for events during March which leave you needing to work some financial magic. With both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your money zone between April and September, this is easier said than done. However, unpredictable Uranus arrives in your everyday work zone in May, bringing flashes of genius and off-the-wall ideas which might just succeed. Don’t overlook your crazier notions. There is gold within.

In May and again in August, help is at hand from a family member or close personal friend. Bountiful Jupiter trines imaginative Neptune at these times, so listen to those closest to you for inspiration and advice on your career or business. Although your creativity may feel blocked in June, during a tricky Sun-Saturn opposition, you do have what it takes to get a new venture off the ground now.

An earthy grand trine in August activates your career, money and everyday work zones, and surrounds you with positive, sensible, can-do energy. This is the time to get to grips with any financial or career problems, and to make a fresh start where necessary. New plans made at this time stand an excellent chance of success. Keep moving forwards and remember: if it’s difficult, it’s probably worth doing!

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


Overview

With lots of emotions swirling around you, 2018 looks set to be a sensitive and thoughtful year for you, Capricorn. You sense that you are at a turning point in life, which makes you anxious and slightly fearful. The planets this year may bring you concern and worries, but you’ll also benefit from a huge amount of emotional support. Your loved ones come closer than ever, which is a blessing in trying times. You’re not always sure who you can trust, and this year does highlight those trust issues. Although one particular friend may let you down, however, you will discover that more people care than you knew.

The year begins with a blip in your confidence as Mars squares up to Neptune in February. Secrets may be revealed, or you might feel on edge for no real reason. Between March and July, jovial Jupiter is retrograde in your friends zone, so you are likely to feel lost at large gatherings, or unable to assert your identity within your social group. For a similar period, between April and September, Saturn – your ruler – and Pluto are both retrograde in your identity zone. Watch out for taking on too much at this time. People may take advantage of your good nature, and you may have to step away from someone who is using you.

When you feel anxious this year, try to find unusual or even eccentric solutions. Getting creative will help enormously. Once free-spirited Uranus moves into your leisure zone in May, new hobbies will build both your confidence and your social network.

Love

Your romantic life is calm and ordered as 2018 begins, and the status quo suits you just fine. There is some excitement to come, however, particularly in May, when rebel planet Uranus arrives in your passion zone. Trying hard to inject some pizazz and sparkle into your love life will pay dividends – don’t allow yourself to get into a rut with love. Be careful not to push too hard. In June and July there are hints of a stalemate between you and your lover, when the Sun opposes first Saturn and then Pluto in your own sign. If you have been together for some time, your sweetheart may not appreciate your sudden desire to recapture your dating days!

You’ll get the balance right in August, when an earthy grand trine aspect highlights your flirtatious side and your well-hidden adventurous nature. This is an excellent time for re-inventing your relationship with confidence and – crucially! – with the blessing of your partner too. Together you can start afresh, but it must be an equal partnership, not just you wanting to push for something different.

As the northern winter arrives, a lack of trust between you and your sweetheart could lead to some divisive arguments. As Mercury turns retrograde in your house of secrets, try to be more open with your lover. Share your darkest fears and your strangest dreams. Opening up will bring you closer; hiding from one another will increase the distance between you.

Work

The main issues with your career this year also revolve around trust, and around your willingness to take risks. You have big ideas and big ambitions, but somehow you often seem to lack the impetus to do anything about them. Motivation is tricky in May, August and September this year, when an awkward square between Mars and Uranus leads to you regretting an impulsive action at work. Once bitten, twice shy, so you will be correspondingly less willing to take another risk at another point in the year.

However, when it comes to risk, you can be your own worst enemy. As Mars turns retrograde in June in your money zone, being overly cautious with your money can be almost as bad as being too reckless with it. Expect a turning point in July during the Lunar Eclipse in this zone of your chart. Run your ideas past your partner, since your money and your future income is very much his or her business too. Try to seek expert advice about finances. Some careers advice or life coaching wouldn’t be a bad idea either – get help with crystalizing and clarifying your ambitions, and creating a step by step plan for achieving them.

A tense opposition between the Sun and Mars in July suggests a reluctance to share; it could be that a relative or friend asks you for help, but you’re not entirely sure you want to give it. Whether you’re being asked for money, contacts or hands-on help, think carefully. Decide whether to help or not based on what you know about this person and their trustworthiness, not based on duty or a desire to be seen to be doing the right thing.

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


Overview

2018 looks certain to bring many changes for you, Aquarius – but that’s a good thing, right? You hate it when life stays the same for too long. Lucky you: there’s not much chance of that this year! Much of the change is set to be in and around your family life, but you will also be re-thinking your career options and re-assessing your personal values.

Between April and September, serious Saturn and power-hungry Pluto are retrograde in your sacrifice zone. This means you’re unlikely to want to compromise, especially where your principles are involved. Rules are made to be broken at this time, and if someone pushes you, you’ll react by breaking even more. Freedom and individuality are always important to you, but now more than ever. You’ll ruffle feathers in your ongoing quest against authority. This is a year when you can make a difference and make your voice heard as an individual against the powers that be, but be sure that you’re fighting this fight for the right reasons.

Unconventional Uranus arrives in your family zone in May, and will stay here for the next seven years. When this planet turns retrograde in August, your very definitely non-standard family lifestyle comes under an uncomfortable spotlight. You can hack this, but can your loved ones? As Mars turns retrograde in your identity zone through July and August, you’ll need to pick your battles wisely with family members. Take them with you, don’t motivate them against you. The Lunar Eclipse in July may bring matters to a head here, so be prepared. The good news is that August’s grand trine is transformational for your family life and for your personal values too – so if you are looking to create a new lifestyle this will be when you start to break through.

Love

In your love life this year, be careful to avoid selfishness. A Lunar Eclipse in your love zone in January hints at the problem – you are very busy thinking about what you want and need, but you tend to just assume that your sweetheart feels likewise. They might not. Find out – ask! Just because your sweetie hasn’t created an argument about something does not mean that he or she fully supports the idea either. Talk about it!

In July, a tense opposition between the Sun and Mars indicates that you are likely to be still putting yourself first. You value independence within a relationship, which is fine – but within your partnership, you must show more respect for your partner’s feelings, ideas and wishes. It’s not that you don’t care; you’re simply so busy with and so excited by your own plans and ideas that you forget to find out if everyone is as on board as you are.

As Mercury turns retrograde in your love zone in August, communication problems may continue – but it’s during this time that family lifestyle issues are likely to resolve themselves, so keep on communicating, keep on opening the dialogue. You’ll get there. Given the changes coming to your family this year, it’s not surprising that there are tense moments. Going into this with a loving and open heart will do a lot to heal any wounds.

Work

After a fortunate career period over the last few years, things may seem to stagnate slightly in early 2018. Bountiful Jupiter is retrograde in your career zone between March and July, and this vibe asks you to question the point of your work. What does it mean? Does it make a difference? Does it fulfil you? If not, why not?

This soul searching over your means of income is something of a luxury, however, so don’t be surprised if your sweetheart becomes impatient or exasperated with you over it. In May, especially, an opposition between the Sun and Jupiter pits your career zone and your family zone against one another, so it’s safe to say that your plans may not at this stage enjoy the full support of your long-suffering other half.

He or she will start to come around to your way of thinking later in May, and again in August, when a delightful trine between Jupiter and imaginative Neptune paves the way for an increase in income – and one you can accept with good conscience too, as the ethics behind this extra work are sound. Don’t let this increase go to your head. When Neptune turns retrograde in your money zone between June and November, your “easy come, easy go” attitude to finance could bother more sensitive souls. Try to act with a little caution. Come December, a startlingly positive Mars-Neptune conjunction helps you to make more money AND feel good about it, as your career shifts into a more meaningful and spiritually aligned direction.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


Overview

Looking for answers, Pisces? You’re right to search. You may not find all the answers in 2018, but your desire to seek them bodes well for your spiritual growth this year. Sometimes the energies around you this year will be a little bit vague and ephemeral, so don’t be surprised if you go through some periods of feeling emotional or anxious but without really knowing why. Your higher self is figuring things out, and that takes some time.

Intellectual Jupiter turns retrograde in your adventure zone in March, and in April, Saturn and Pluto do likewise in your objectives zone. Taken together, these influences spark a journey of the soul. You don’t know where you’re heading, but you sense the need to get going. During May and again in August, it’s important that you seek to be happy with yourself. Pay no heed to what others think of you. It’s not important. As Jupiter trines spiritual Neptune in your identity zone, the only thing that matters is your opinion of yourself.

Once your ruling planet Neptune turns retrograde in June, you may feel slightly lost and out of the loop. Warrior planet Mars also turns retrograde in your community zone, driving you to seek out those who feel the same way. Band together with like-minded souls and feel the power of togetherness. There is a Lunar Eclipse in July in the most spiritual part of your chart, which may take your breath away. Expect sudden spiritual insight, weird coincidences or a turning point in your spiritual life.

Love

If you’re single and looking for love, there’s good news. Your chances of meeting someone special are strong in July and August, when a retrograde Mars drives you to take shelter within your “tribe”, and among like-minded souls. Look there for a lover who truly understands you. In an established relationship, you will spend much of 2018 exploring your karmic and spiritual links. In July, for example, an imposing opposition between the ego-driven Sun and passion-driven Mars results in revelations about how you two met in a previous life, or what your joint soul mission might be.

The northern summer months are an inspirational time for your love life. August’s grand trine aspect activates your love zone and urges you to seek intellectual stimulation from your partner, and to step away from shallow physical attraction. It’s important to keep things grounded and real, however. In September, watch out for too much conflict-avoidance on your part. As the Sun opposes Neptune, you may be simply storing up problems for the future. If something needs to be discussed, talk about it now.

The Northern Hemisphere winter brings a beautiful conjunction between Mars and Neptune in your identity zone, which is a wonderful indicator of mesmerizing seasonal romance. The next holiday season should be one to remember for all the right reasons! Within an existing partnership, bring back the first flush of romance with plenty of poetry, music and romantic gestures.

Work

If your finances have been a bit stretched recently, January should bring a sigh of relief. Once rebel planet Uranus turns direct in your money zone, your income should start to bounce back nicely. However, be careful if your income depends upon your reputation – if you are a freelancer, for example, or someone well known in your industry. A difficult square between Mars and Neptune in February suggests disruption caused by a scandal of some kind. Be whiter than white, or be prepared to face the consequences!

After February onwards, your career takes a creative turn. Helped by a brilliant and inventive trine between Mars and Uranus, you’ll probably start to think outside the box, creating new ideas, new solution and new income streams. This would be a fantastic time to be involved in social media or online business ventures, or indeed with any kind of cutting edge tech. If you can blend the very modern with good old-fashioned courtesy and business ethics, you have a winning formula.

The notion of finding your spiritual tribe applies this year at work too. From April onwards, you may want to tighten your niche, and to look for work more closely connected to your heart. A new career in health, wellbeing, counselling or guidance of some kind would suit you perfectly. Don’t limit your dreams to the field where you already work. Go where your heart takes you!
