Although we feel uncomfortable with injustice, in the face of powerful manipulation we sometimes resign ourselves, bottle our outrage, and compartmentalise the unacceptable by accepting that certain battles can’t be won. But some battles need fighting even if they seem unwinnable. Mercury’s opposition with Uranus encourages the voicing of frustrations over situations that need to be challenged. It’s a cosmic reminder that victory lies in how far we’ve come, rather than where we end up.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

Traditionally speaking, my job is to give you a glimpse of what’s coming up in your life. Yet this week, you’re better placed to see the future than I am! One particular aspect of it feels a little too close for comfort; if you keep moving along the same track, it’s pretty obvious what will happen. The problem is that you’re no longer sure that you want it to unfold that way. The cosmic message couldn’t be clearer. You just need to be honest about what you want to achieve. The truth is your best friend. In your love life: What is a person really trying to say? How should you interpret it? All will become inspiringly clear soon.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

From social media to the news, there’s no escape from stories about the inhumane things we do to one another; there’s a stream of disheartening information. So, it’s important to remember that events only become newsworthy when they are unusual. Most people are compassionate and understanding; they go out of their way to help others. You’ve been the recipient of someone’s kindheartedness recently. This week brings an opportunity to share similarly generous acts. You’ll benefit too. In your love life: You’re concerned about a pressing matter. Be conscious of a possible problem but don’t be overwhelmed.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

Our views of the past are influenced by what’s happening in the present. Even historians don’t agree – we all interpret past situations through our own filters. And we all have an inner historian, who looks back and edits our experiences to suit our current circumstances. As time moves on, our emotional responses change: where we once felt anger, or sadness, we might come to feel acceptance, even appreciation. What’s happening this week, however, needs no debate. It’s going to be good. In your love life: Resist the urge to ride to the rescue. Wait a while to see if the cries for help continue.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 22)

Everybody likes to feel reassured. The sensation of being held, comforted and treasured is something we all desire. Yet sadly, there are few of us who regularly have these basic needs fulfilled. Although we find it relatively easy to offer them to children, we find it harder to share the softer sides of ourselves with other adults. Fortunately, there are times when the cosmos gives us the equivalent of a warm embrace. Despite the changes this week brings, you'll get the support and strength you need. In your love life: A balance of power now changes in a close relationship. Now you can do something about it.

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 23)

In those moments when life presents us with impossibilities, it also gives us chances to experience its magic. When we feel as if we're stuck between a rock and a hard place, we can find a way to escape. It's almost as if something mysteriously and invisibly guides us to safety. If you're approaching this week with a degree of anxiety you have nothing to fear. It's true that you're dealing with several challenging situations; but there's magic in the air. It will be easier than you think. In your love life: It's better if some fantasies don't come true. Remember that in your emotional and personal life now.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

When bizarre things keep occurring around us, we start to accept them as being normal. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that we should treat them as acceptable. The link between your ruling planet and Uranus highlights an area of your life that’s beginning to feel inescapable, yet which makes you feel ill at ease. It’s time to stand up and fight for what feels right. Which is not to suggest that you need to confront anyone. Patience and resilience will help achieve the right result. In your love life: Little white lies can sometimes be acceptable. Trust your own judgement in this area of your emotional life now.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

It must be great to be in politics. Whilst we all have to wrestle with uncertainties, it seems that once you’ve climbed up the ranks and are a successful politician, you don’t have to worry about getting things wrong! Religious leaders often follow a similar trajectory. As a Libran, you’re blessed with the ability to see both sides of any story. Your sense of self-importance is well under control. This week, if you courageously own up to a mistake, you’ll go further on the path to success. In your love life: Are you trying to reconcile things that do not go well together? You might not succeed, but nor will you fail.
#Libra Daily Prediction

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

We misunderstand one another more frequently than we think. Some sceptics believe that even when two people feel as if they’ve reached a place of mutual understanding, it’s probably because one of them doesn’t ‘get’ the other person’s point of view. You’ve invested energy into negotiating a truce between people you care about, but are concerned it’s about to give way. Despite pessimistic opinions, the agreement can be consolidated. Have faith in the process of co-operation this week. In your love life: A coming change will leave you with a challenge you wish you did not have, but it will be one to be glad of.
#Scorpio Daily Prediction

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

We may be constantly chatting and texting each other, but how often do we truly communicate? There are several pieces of news that you're not sharing with people who ought to know what you know. You're being economical with the truth. Yet there's a good chance that your lack of transparency is visible; and that others are withholding helpful information from you! As the planet of communication links to innovative Uranus, it's time to stop being diplomatic and be more honest. In your love life: Feeling less hopeful about a commitment that once excited you? It's time to refresh your enthusiasm.
#Sagittarius Daily Prediction

Capricon (Dec 22 - Jan 21)

Everyone loves the excitement of new situations. We enjoy it almost as much as we love our sense of the familiar. Yet at the moment, you’re not quite sure what you want. An adventure beckons, but it will entail sacrificing some of your security. And to feel more secure, you’ll have to abandon some of your freedom. Aargh! Fortunately, you’re a resilient Capricorn. When the going gets tough, you get going. There’s no need to be hesitant. If you trust your instincts, you’ll know what to do. In your love life: You want to act quickly. But consider going more slowly rather than putting a relationship under stress.
#Capricon Daily Prediction

Aquarius (Jan 22 - Feb 19)

When you're being offered the chance to go a long way, in these challenging times with ever-changing rules, it seems likely that this will take the form of an inner journey. So, this week brings a chance to travel into the realms of your imagination. Recent events have caused you to stifle a creative idea and to quash your ingenuity. As Mercury links with your ruling planet, Uranus, it brings a welcome, if unconventional way to widen your horizons. It's time to move onwards and upwards. In your love life: Pessimistic about your chance of success in one key area? Why so negative? Failure is not a certainty.
#Aquarius Daily Prediction

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

Some people believe that if they hide away from trouble, it won’t find them. Other folk view it with a very different mindset; if they think it’s heading in their direction, they go out to look for it so that they can tackle it head on. Don’t worry… I’m not saying that trouble is heading your way this week. It’s more that your approach to a drama will affect its outcome. As far as possible, let discretion and consideration be your guides. And if restraint is no longer appropriate, be guided by your ingenuity. In your love life: You have a deep secret hope. It doesn’t seem logical. But you should trust your instincts.
