Weekly Horoscope

This week, it is the arrival of the first of three important pick-me-ups that pepper 2020. Optimistic and adventurous Jupiter links with imaginative and empathetic Neptune; and the gods of Sky and Sea combine just as the Sun enters Pisces. It’s time for innovation, growth, understanding and action… all carried out with panache! It’s only Mercury’s retrograde turn that creates a fly in the ointment. Yet we just need to remember that drawing boards can be returned to; that’s often when the best ideas are born.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

Since you set such high standards for yourself, it’s hardly surprising that you don’t always manage to live up to them. That’s nothing to be ashamed of. It’s much better to only just miss an optimistic goal than to set your sights on something that doesn’t make your heart sing. Although you haven’t quite managed to achieve what you’d hoped to achieve, you’re not yet fully aware of the effects of your efforts. Good news is on its way. At the very least, it brings a chance to use the experience you’ve gained.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

How are you supposed to react when people tell you to put your feelings aside and focus on the logical thing to do? Don’t they have a heart? Do they go through life like robots – impervious to feelings and ignoring their impulses and desires? How can you turn down the strength of your passions and your emotions when they’re a fundamental part of who you are? You can’t! Don’t listen to anyone who tells you otherwise. The powerful planetary forces encourage you to follow your heart this week.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

While lots of food is instantly edible, much of what we consume needs to be prepared before it can be digested. Whether it’s peeling, cutting, boiling or baking, it has to be processed before it becomes appetising. The same can be said for the events lining up this week. If you apply a flame of inspiration and a blade of brilliance, you can cut your problems into bite-sized pieces. The planets are most encouraging. Take one step at a time and you’ll get further than you’ve dared dream of.
#Gemini Daily Prediction

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 22)

The trouble with trouble is that it never takes a holiday. It’s always waiting for an opportunity to make its presence felt. Yet, even though it rarely takes time off, it’s prone to the occasional snooze when, if you take great care, and tiptoe past, you can get to where you want to be without disturbing it. Although I can’t guarantee that there won’t be the occasional creaking floorboard to navigate over, or that you won’t be overcome with a desire to tweak trouble’s tail, if you go gently, you’ll go far this week.
#Cancer Daily Prediction

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 23)

Although you feel as if you lack certain resources, and are feeling underwhelmed about an aspect of your emotional life, all is not lost. In fact, there are reasons to celebrate the fact of your disenchantment about a particular situation. It’s providing you with the right reasons to motivate yourself to implement important and necessary change. You’ve been aware, for a while now, that something can’t continue in the same way. This week, the powerful cosmic climate shows you what you need to do.
#Leo Daily Prediction

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

Is there anything wrong with being happy? As far as I’m aware, there’s no law against it. It’s not taxable. Nor does laughter (which is often a by-product) cause damage to the ozone layer or contribute to global warming. Sadness, on the other hand, often produces tears as a side effect – which don’t help rising sea levels. Seriously! This week’s cosmic message couldn’t be clearer. It’s time to treat yourself to people and things that make you feel good. Give yourself the favour you deserve!
#Virgo Daily Prediction

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

We like to have a strategy that leads us towards success. And, we want to have a plan that we can fall back on as insurance. That’s why we spend so much time thinking about things before setting off on a plan of action. Yet when we think too hard, and look at all the angles, it can cause confusion. You know this scenario well; you’re extremely good at seeing all sides of a story. This week, the cosmic climate encourages you to use your ability to adapt. It will enable you to take great strides forwards.
#Libra Daily Prediction

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

Although there are an infinite number of excuses, few of them count for very much. No matter how successful we are, we all have a sense that we could be doing better. We’re also aware of the fact that we can’t undo things that have already been done; or go back in time and do things that we didn’t manage to do. Yet, it’s never too late to put something right. This week, under a powerful cosmic climate, you have an opportunity to make peace with something from your past. Healing is possible.
#Scorpio Daily Prediction

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Before I explain the details of what’s happening in the sky, I thought I’d find out how much detail you require. Do you want to know all the intricacies? Do you need facts and figures, or are you happy to put your trust in a more general explanation? Right… you just need to understand why something you’re trying to achieve still remains elusive. In that case, you just need to know that under this week’s encouraging cosmic climate, determination, and trust will turn things around in your favour.
#Sagittarius Daily Prediction

Capricon (Dec 22 - Jan 21)

Forthright, intrepid, courageous, bold, resolute and determined. That’s you in a nutshell. Well… it’s certainly what you’d like other people to think about you. Actually, it’s a pretty fair assessment of your characteristics. I’m sure you don’t want me to burst any bubbles and tell you that these qualities are on limited supply this week. So I won’t! You don’t need to worry! You’re being blessed with cosmic assistance that will enhance your gifts. If you’re facing a challenge, you can easily rise to it.
#Capricon Daily Prediction

Aquarius (Jan 22 - Feb 19)

If you’re feeling as if you’re being stretched as far as it’s possible to be stretched, then you’re in a fortunate position. You’re being given a very timely reminder that something in your life needs to give. You’re being shown that things can’t continue in the same way. Your priorities need to change. This week, the powerful planetary forces enable you to renegotiate a promise and reschedule a commitment. You’re about to discover that the future has a delightful and different plan in store.
#Aquarius Daily Prediction

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

This is going to be a week to remember! As Jupiter, your traditional ruler, links with Neptune, your modern ruler; and the Sun enters your sign. So the cosmos is blessing you not only with the creativity and insight you’ve been waiting for, but with the energy to take positive action. Even though you have a difficult issue to deal with, you won’t need to focus on it to the exclusion of everything else. Look out for a bright new, hopeful vision of your future; because you can set out to achieve it.
