The end of this week brings a partial Solar Eclipse. It’s not visible from many places but that doesn’t mean we won’t feel the influence. Nor should we belittle this rare event because it is only ‘partial’. Some students of mystic symbolism say there’s far more meaning in an event if it doesn’t go ‘all the way’. It awakens an idea. It sparks off an interest. It ends up having a lasting impact. Look out in your life soon, for the realisation that something you thought of as ‘too complete to challenge’ can be chipped away at and changed.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
They say, ‘There’s safety in numbers’. Perhaps so. But there is also stupidity. Think of the millions who have spent hard-earned money on atrocious clothes or appalling songs, all in the name of fashion. Consider the hordes who faithfully flock to vote for their preferred politician, only to be rewarded by a string of mediocre performances and broken promises. The majority of people would probably not approve of your current plan. Why, though, should you care about that? No matter what’s worrying you, there’s a way to make it all okay.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
Faith, they say, can move a mountain. Indeed it can, but it can move it all the more efficiently if it happens to be equipped with a large stack of dynamite and a bulldozer. You now fervently believe that something is possible. You have high hopes – and rightly so. This does not mean, though, that you can now sit back and wait for everything to fall into place. Your great objective is only just attainable. To reach it you will have to expend a great deal of effort. So roll up your sleeves and sharpen your focus this week. You will eventually get the results you seek.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
We can draw up quite a list of people who feel sure that a part of you belongs to them. You are ‘spoken for’ in lots of ways. This is all very flattering, but it implies a great responsibility. It also explains why you are sometimes plagued by a sense of guilt. But if others have projections upon you or expectations of you, can this all be your fault? And how many of those demands are you obliged to comply with? This week’s challenge involves breaking free from easy but unsatisfactory arrangements. You must be strong enough to be yourself.
CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
Do I know you from somewhere? Surely, it can’t be… well I never, it’s you! I do apologise. It’s just that I hardly recognise you. You may look much the same but don’t forget, I can’t see you in that way, any more than you can see me. This astrological communication between us, takes place in the psychic realm and it is at that more subtle energetic level that I perceive such a difference in your moods and attitudes. I don’t expect it can be long now before the rest of the world notices too. You had best prepare to start making a powerful impression this week.
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Will you get what you want? Probably. But only on one condition: that you find out what it is that you really DO want. If you don’t resolve that question, you will end up getting something you don’t really want but merely think that you do. Or worse, you will get what you want, but you will not realise that it is what you want – so you will send it away with the word, ‘unwanted’ stamped on it. A forthcoming solar eclipse insists that opportunity has rarely been greater. It’s discrimination that’s in short supply now. So make that what you want to find in yourself… and you will.
VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
How would you feel if I were to tell you that your week was due to present you with a new difficulty at every turn? Would you clasp your hand to your head in horror and say, ‘Oh no’ or would you shrug your shoulders and say, ‘Hey ho, business as usual.’ You have all but forgotten what it feels like to lead an easy life. You are expecting more trouble. You are beginning to suspect that this must be what you deserve. But you face no problem that you cannot solve, no obstacle that you cannot conquer. No matter what’s worrying you, you can make it okay.
LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
Who’s fooling whom? Could it be that in an effort to protect someone, you are withholding sensitive information? Your intentions are noble, but by keeping back a part of the truth, you are creating an imbalance and an obstacle. Meanwhile, it looks very much as if a certain someone is being similarly tactful with regard to news that you really ought to have. Indeed, it could well prove to be the case that you are tiptoeing round the very person who is tiptoeing around you! Find a table and place your cards on it. Take your sleeve, and wear your heart on it!
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
We all hate to wait. We live in a world that is ruled by the clock. We need to be at work at this time, at home by that time. We have appointments to keep and expectations to meet. Not only are we expected to be punctual in all these cases, but we are also governed by deadlines and time targets of our own invention. A part of you is now in a great hurry. Circumstances, somehow, are seemingly conspiring to hold you back. This could be because it is ultimately better if you do not attain your goal. What if it isn’t as urgent as you think it is?
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
Venus is in your sign. This auspicious astrological omen does not, sadly, guarantee overnight improvement in your material status. But it does suggest you are going to get a push to set your financial wheel spinning a little faster. If that wheel is somehow stuck or rusty, the experience may at first prove more frustrating than enriching. You may be able to sense the opportunity, but find yourself unable to take it. Don’t let that happen. Work now on being open to the possibility of a better way to move forward… and loosen whatever is stuck.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
Children are always being encouraged to act more like adults. They are told that their natural sense of fun is far too frivolous. They are urged to become serious and responsible, no matter how dull this makes them. When, though, are adults ever encouraged to be more like children? When are they told to lighten up and be less pompous – or to take more risks and be more honest? It may not be appropriate now for you to become more childish but you could certainly benefit from being more childlike. An open heart will open many doors.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
Football teams know that if they are playing in their home town they will always have an advantage. Most people in the crowd naturally tend to be on their side. The players will feel supported and this will reflect on their performance. Will they sense the same enthusiasm if their fans are only watching them on TV? It’s a moot point. You can argue that in ‘willing something to happen’, even though you are a long way from the action, you are wasting your time. But it can make a big difference. You have many supporters. Focus hard and don’t worry this week.
PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
Remember when yoghurt was just something you made by accident? Or when Crocs were worn only by eccentrics? Suddenly, somehow, these things went from the minority to the mainstream. The change seemed to happen almost overnight. Transforming processes often follow a trend like this. They look, for ages, as if they are never going to catch on. Then, before you know it, they have taken hold and there is no turning back. Now, about that big, brave, new idea you have been contemplating for so long. You may just find that the time has come.
