This week’s most exciting development has got to be the moment when Saturn turns stationary. The planet of restriction, impediment and delay is beginning a phase of retrograde motion that is due to last till June. Retrograde motion may be an illusion, caused by the Earth’s motion, relative to that of a distant planet but it has deep symbolic significance. And what does it mean? It means, er… restriction, impediment and delay. So if the planet of restriction, impediment and delay is subject to restriction, impediment and delay, we can all expect to start making a lot of progress!
PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
The brighter the light, the darker the shadow. People who lead gloomy lives don’t have to worry about this. Everything merges into the same featureless terrain. When, though, there is a single source of hope and inspiration, the problems that are associated with this are shown up in sharp relief. We can see them so clearly outlined that we begin to wonder whether our faith is misguided. A great light is now shining down on you. It is creating a lot of joy – but it is also intensifying an apparent source of sadness or regret. Don’t let this upset you. Just keep looking at what’s good.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Christopher Columbus upset many people with his plan to sail around the world. “You’re crazy,” they shouted. “You’ll fall off the edge!” He was pretty sure of himself, but there must have been a part of him that was worried. He took his risk – and, soon, you will have to take yours. So, how confident are you? Be glad of your doubt. That’s your sanity check. It is the reason why you won’t become overconfident and make some foolish mistake. Let it slow you down, but don’t let it stop you. You know what must be done. You are in an excellent position to do it. Be brave. You’ll yet change history!
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
“The universe as we know it is a joint product of the observer and the observed.” So said the great philosopher Teilhard de Chardin. Later, the physicist, Werner Heisenberg reached a very similar conclusion and came up with scientific proof to back it up! So, who is watching who in your world now? And to what extent can you alter the state of play by changing the way you look at what you seem to be seeing? You’re not as limited as you think or fear. Look this week for a way to change what you need to change. You’ll find it. Ask the universe for what you want. You could actually get it.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
Some people love to argue. They’re not happy unless they’re unhappy. They’re only relaxed if they’re on edge. This may help them survive in this tense and turbulent world – but it’s hardly a state to aspire to. You and I want to relax and to know where we stand. Don’t we? Or maybe we feel that would be desperately dull. I mention this because, this week, you need to ask yourself what’s truly driving and motivating you. If you’re saying one thing and doing another, you’ll create a lot of confusion. Yet if you forget, this week, what you think you ought to want, you can get what you want.
CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
They say that what counts is not what you know but who you know. Yet what matters most is neither what you know nor who you know nor even what who you know knows. It is all down to who you know knows! With me so far? OK. This is where it gets tricky. If who you know knows what you know, they can tell what you know to who they know. But you want who they know to know you! So don’t tell all you know to you-know-who. Just get them to tell you what they know about who they know! Remember that and this will yet be a surprisingly straightforward and satisfying week.
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
It’s hard to know what really makes sense. You are experiencing problems in areas where life ought to be easy and you can’t quite see why this is happening. Crucial lines of communication are not as clear as they ought to be. That’s another reason why you are prone to feel frustrated or dispirited. Actually, though, you are going through an essential, if difficult, process. You are getting to grips with a real problem and, slowly but surely, you are finding a real way to solve it. Don’t take your worries too seriously. Just look, this week, for answers and slowly you’ll start to see them.
VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
Look up at the sky. Is there a large hand reaching down from it towards you? Have you passed any surprisingly vociferous burning bushes recently? Oh well. Perhaps your great communication from the Divine Creator has been delivered to the wrong address. Or maybe the cosmos has sent you an email and it has gone into your spam folder. Something out there somewhere, though, wants to get a message to you. There is something it is trying to tell you. Be open to hints, signs and signals over the course of the coming week. There is now a much easier way to get what you want.
LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
There is no forecast for you here; I am not allowed to supply a reading. New government rulings dictate that a permit must now be granted before any kind of cosmic consultation can take place. You must make an application – in triplicate. Probably, though, it will be turned down. The authorities do not like to encourage this kind of thing. So that’s it. Sorry. Er, actually, I’m just illustrating the kind of frustrating impediment that it’s common to come up against while Saturn turns stationary in your sign. Yet all you really have to do this week is remain good humoured and patiently persistent.
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
Think about how hard you have worked. How much effort you have invested. Has it all paid off? Of course not. Nothing we ever do is 100 per cent successful. It’s the same with the money we spend. Not every penny can be parted with wisely, no matter how frugal we try to be. We either accept this or we drive ourselves insane in an effort to achieve unattainable perfection. Now, think of an aspiration that you are all but ready to give up on; a campaign that you have lost faith in. Put more energy into your great dream this week, it won’t all work out… but some of it will.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
Venus remains in your sign. If, lately, your love life has become wonderful, your financial situation has become more encouraging and you have become full of inspiring, creative energy, you can expect all of this to continue over the coming week. And, if it hasn’t? Then, all the aforementioned must be rushing its way into your world as fast as it possibly can. Venus does not have long left now in which to shower you with an annual quota of gifts and advantages. Perhaps something is standing in her way? Consider what you can possibly alter to allow this planet more access to your life.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
You were not born yesterday. You have been around the block a few times. Not, I hasten to add, that this is obvious from your appearance. To look at you, we would all think you were at least 10 years younger – 20, probably. But from the way you are acting these days, it is clear you have been learning some very important lessons and you now have the benefit of experience to draw on. Trust your wisdom this week. Don’t make the kind of mistake that you might have done when you were younger. Ask the universe for what you want. While Saturn is stationary, you could actually get it.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
For some while now, you have felt rather like someone who is trying to push a heavy cart up a steep hill. If you have not already reached the brow and begun to enjoy an exciting, easy descent, you will start to have that experience very soon. A sense of fresh hope is about to be awakened. Saturn, the traditional ruler of your sign, is now starting to stand still in the sector of the sky which, as far as you are concerned, governs power, status, authority, influence and importance. It also, of course, brings pressure. But you’re used to that and will cope with it as things begin to go your way.
