The good news is that the second of 2019’s Jupiter and Neptune ‘squares’ occurs next weekend. Sometimes, the build-up to major events can make us giddy with anticipation; the sense of occasion gets to us and we lose our ability to concentrate. But, with the Sun’s courageous and purposeful nature encouraged by Jupiter this week, this is no time for distractions. The determination and energy required to achieve objectives is available — as long as we stay focused on what really matters.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

Give yourself a well-deserved medal. Actually, you deserve more than one. You can have one for persistence, another for endurance and one more for patience in the face of adversity. You’ve certainly been through a lot. You might not feel as if you’ve handled the stress particularly well, but you’re not in the right place to judge that. Other people can see that, under difficult circumstances, you’ve done remarkably. And with the current astrological climate, you’re about to do even better! This week brings a lucky break. In your love life: Wherever in your world there is a struggle to keep the peace, there will soon be a far greater sense of rapport.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

Something is irritating you. It feels as if there’s an unfair inequality in a situation you’re embroiled in, and you can’t work out how to remedy it. You could easily spend the entire week feeling hot and bothered about this. But it would be better to accept that there’s a limit to what you can do. If something appears to be going wrong there’s a chance that it might be going wrong for the right reasons! You’ve done all you can to encourage a discussion about a delicate situation. Trust in that and allow yourself to let go. In your love life: You can control how dramatic events become. If you want a situation to calm down, merely watch what you add to the pot.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

You’re preparing yourself. It’s as if you think you’re going to be dealing with someone (or something) demanding and draining. No wonder you’re polishing off your metaphorical suit of armour. With a battle looming, you’re preparing to deal with the consequences of courageously saying something that could cause controversy and put peoples’ defences up. Yet whilst it’s true that you face a challenge, the Sun’s link with Jupiter indicates that the cavalry is on its way. You’ll be delighted with how things work out. In your love life: Let others know how highly you think of them. Where genuine praise is deserved, offer it and it will be returned in kind.
#Gemini Daily Prediction

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 22)

What’s the best way to get rid of a problem? Well, it’s obvious isn’t it? Solve it! Yet the moment you do, it’s as if an invisible sign announces the fact that you’re a successful problem solver… and before you know it, people will be queuing up for help with their woes. Some people prefer to ignore anything that’s not going well – but that’s not a solution either. So what’s the best way to approach your current difficulty? Learn to love it! Every challenge holds positivity. Find that, and the problem will disappear. In your love life: Things look likely to go well for you soon. One little moment of insight will show you that you have all the power you need.

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 23)

Would you believe me if I told you that everything’s about to get easier? I suppose it’s a bit like telling someone who’s stuck in a downpour that things are about to get a lot drier. Meanwhile, all they can see are the grey clouds overhead. Yet you can feel that you’re moving in the right direction. And, as your ruler links with lucky Jupiter this week, you’ll be able to see why this particular journey has been so worthwhile. The gift of acceptance brings a change of heart which will free you from worry. All will be fine. In your love life: Don’t fight your critics. Just drop your own criticism of someone else and they will become less critical of you.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

The saying ‘there’s no smoke without fire’ was rendered obsolete when dry ice was invented! That’s how unpredictable our world is. We think we know what we’re dealing with; that we’ve got all the bases covered, when suddenly something new pops up and throws everything out of alignment. Don’t assume you know what you’re up against. You’re feeling pessimistic because you’re being reminded of a past mistake. Yet, what’s unfolding is very different. As you’re about to discover, Jupiter is bringing optimism into your world. In your love life: You feel a little vulnerable. Your world may seem short of refuges and safe places. Face it. Be persistent. It will pay off for you.
#Virgo Daily Prediction

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

Just take a look at the state of the world; so much injustice and misery. It can’t have happened by accident; somebody must be to blame. So who’s going to take responsibility for it? Why couldn’t it be your fault? Well… for precisely the same reason that the blame for all the problems in your life can’t be placed at your feet. In truth, it’s an act of selfishness to believe that you’re responsible for so much. As the Sun and Jupiter combine their energies, let go of your guilt and enjoy the good things the week brings. In your love life: You can aid a delicate situation – as much by what you don’t say, as by what you do, you can exert a helpful healing influence.
#Libra Daily Prediction

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

In those moments when life feels like a never-ending struggle, it’s okay to stop, stand back, and take a break from the difficult situation you’re embroiled in. From a different vantage point you can appreciate life, with all of its quirks and foibles for the precious gift that it is. This week, as we move towards the Jupiter/Neptune link, you’re being encouraged to find time to do something lovely. If you reach towards the brightest outcome, you’ll see that a troublesome situation is less problematic than it seems. In your love life: Sometimes you have to just dive in. Discretion is usually the better part of valour. Not always. Is this such a time?
#Scorpio Daily Prediction

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Every time we think we've moved on from the past, it has a tendency to catch up with us and tap us on the shoulder. You keep trying to negotiate with yesterday so that you can be free to enjoy a trouble-free tomorrow. Yet despite your best efforts, discussions seem to end up going nowhere and you find yourself back dealing with the very same situation you wanted to leave behind. As the Sun energises your ruling planet, Jupiter, it brings you the momentum you need to move on. You're about to be unstoppable. In your love life: Don't make a song and dance of it. Softly, softly... even if you are an excitable Sagittarian and there is drama in the skies!
#Sagittarius Daily Prediction

Capricon (Dec 22 - Jan 21)

Your world has been spinning faster than usual. You’ve been almost frenetically busy; either dashing around under relentless pressure or aware of commitments you’ve made that must be kept. Even when you’ve had time to relax, you’ve been unable to let go of the tension. The best news, would be to hear that this is the week when your problems will be sorted. But life’s not that simple. Although they won’t all be solved, the encouraging cosmic climate promises you can find ways to make them less important. In your love life: Understanding another’s needs and motives may be trickier than you expect it to be now - but it is not impossible!
#Capricon Daily Prediction

Aquarius (Jan 22 - Feb 19)

Just because your mind functions as well as a computer, there’s no guarantee that you always make the right decisions. Your innovative thinking shows you new ways around problems, but you still can’t see the whole picture. Why not? Because you’re human! One of the joys of experiencing the complications integral to life on planet Earth is the realisation that happiness is not dependent on knowledge. Listen to your heart this week. As the Sun and Jupiter connect, you know what you need to do. In your love life: Don’t fear the power someone has over you; for you have true power over them. Respect and integrity are your strong suits.
#Aquarius Daily Prediction

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

A block of wood might not look interesting, but if it’s holding up the table you’re sitting at, or keeping a window ajar, it’s serving a very useful purpose. You’re involved in a process which might not look particularly exciting, but it is extremely practical. In the approach to the Jupiter and Neptune alignment, there’s a chance to move on from a situation that’s been causing you trouble. This is an opportunity to find a jewel that’s been hidden in a mundane part of your life. A key to happiness is within reach this week. In your love life: Someone has drawn a line. Trust that, trust them and, despite the challenging nature of the skies right now, they will trust you too.
