The Sun and Venus both shift into Virgo this week, so the focus is on detail. Virgoan energy can be rather moody, and the quest for perfection can be draining – however, a lovely Venus-Mars conjunction in the same sign this week points towards a meeting of hearts and minds.
Aries (March 20th - April 19th)
It's very tempting to take the easy life at work, especially if you can get away with shortcuts or doing the bare minimum. Think about your pride though - surely you want to keep doing the very best job that you can?
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
now in your dating zone, it's the perfect time to meet someone new. Keep dates light and playful, as this is not the time to get heavy or serious. Look for someone who makes you feel youthful or who loves playing sports.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
Family stability is your key priority this week and you'll want to do everything you can to make your home feel loving, welcoming and peaceful. It's a good time to redecorate or to repurpose a spare room.
Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)
Loyalty is a key issue for you now and you will be keen to show someone that you have their back. Don't be blinded, however. At some point, you may have to make a difficult decision regarding backing someone or not. Listen to your instincts.
Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)
You can be quite a materialistic sign and never more so than when Venus
arrives in your money zone. A quest for luxury this week could prove expensive - keep an eye on the budget! It is, however, a good time to launch a new, creative business.
Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)
You're more sociable than normal this week, as Venus
arrives in your sign and smooths your social interactions. This is a good time for dating, if you're single, as you'll make a wonderful first impression on someone potentially interesting.
Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)
A karmic attraction draws you towards someone surprising - there's magic in the mix here, so expect to feel intoxicated. If you're not single, this obviously presents some issues - think carefully before doing anything drastic.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
If you're single, you may meet someone special via community action or charity work. You're interested in what makes people tick and you'll love making new friends this week. An excellent listener, you're also a great mentor just now.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)
Put your charm to good use at work. People find you fascinating and compelling, so it's a brilliant time to work in sales, marketing or PR. The public is listening, so make sure you're telling them something good!
Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)
There's a delightful link between love and travel this week - so if you're single and looking for romance, head to unfamiliar places, the further away the better! If you're already committed, try to take a brief romantic break together.
Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)
hots up a relationship, bringing steam, passion and a definite need for privacy! If you're single, someone you meet this week could prove to be a keeper. If you're already in a relationship, take this opportunity to deepen your emotional intimacy.
Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)
shifts into your love zone this week, so it's all kittens, rainbows, poetry and love notes. Sweet! Get in touch with your inner romantic and show your sweetheart just how much you care. It's impossible to overdo the schmaltz with this cosmic influence!
