If it’s your birthday…
There are going to be some very big lessons about love and relationships coming your way over the next 12 months. Do try and stay open to whatever life is trying to teach you. The minute you metaphorically put your hands over your ears and start singing to block it all out, is the moment you lose! Love-wise and financially, it’s promising.
March 21 – April 19
This week your planet Mars starts to go backwards. Mars is the fiery force of the zodiac and your ruler. However right now, Mars is more damp squib than fireball and you might well feel the same. That’s ok! On the upside, you are going to have way fewer upsets with friends in the coming few weeks.
Your fire isn’t out exactly, but it’s definitely burning on low. Chill, a bit.
April 20 – May 20
Over the coming months you are going to learn more and more about holding your tongue when you just feel like lashing out wildly. That’s part of the whole Uranus in Taurus package. Learning how to control your new energy is a part of the challenge.
It’s an overall exciting ride so don’t fear it. This week you need to count to ten before you respond to anyone annoying – especially annoying family members.
May 21 – June 20
You’re famous for having a bit of a silver tongue but this week, your tongue looks a bit more like a sharp knife than anything else. Mind you don’t cut yourself or anyone else on it.
As your ruler, Mercury clashes with crazy Uranus, it’s going to be all too easy to say the wrong thing, or allow a conversation to spiral in all the wrong ways. So keep your counsel. Losing your temper almost certainly won’t get you what you want.
June 21 – July 22
You have so many lessons coming to you from the important people in your life – and Saturn is not going to let you forget it! In fact, every single person who upsets you is a teacher now.
So what are you learning about yourself and how you are in all of your most important relationships? Can you put your finger on it yet? If not, it doesn’t actually matter. There’s time. Anyone who makes you feel put upon is your teacher.
July 23 – August 22
This week the planet of sex and desire, aka Mars, stalls in your Love Zone. And if you think that sounds like a wilting love or sex life, well, you might be right.
On the other hand though, you might also find that the Mars retrograde starting this week is actually going to put out a few fires in some of your relationships, personal and professional. And that has to be a good thing. See how life feels when you’re less argumentative.
August 23 – September 22
If you have been pushing yourself too hard lately, then there is some good news for you; the pace of your everyday life is about to slow down as Mars loses speed in your Daily Life Zone.
Some of you might even decide to give yourself a bit of a break when it comes to exercise for the few weeks of this cycle. At least go a little bit less hard. It’s the time to recoup your energies and relax.
23 September – October 22
The main problem you look like having this week is being too well-loved, or perhaps it’s you that’s loving a bit too much? Or there could be a lot of spending going on?
Make sure you keep whatever budget you have in mind or you could easily blow out. Overall though, decide that this is going to be a wonderful social week and lavish your friends with your gloriousness. (Just don’t lavish them too much financially and all will be well).
23 October – November 21
This could be a very good week for you professionally – if you don’t go overboard. For some it will be purely that you are ‘more popular’ at work. Can’t hurt. For others the Venus/Jupiter action from your Career Zone to your sign could translate as actual more money.
However you are one of the signs that also needs a budgetary warning; don’t spend more than you can afford. You have luck on your side right now but don’t push it.
22 November – December 21
There are some lessons in the air this week as the Sun clashes with headmaster Saturn. For you, this clash is straddling not one, but both of your celestial money boxes.
Add to this a clash between luxurious Venus, who adores the finer things in life, and your ruler Jupiter, and the stage is set for you to spend your week … spending! Or perhaps dreaming of what you want but can’t yet afford. That’s ok. Visualise it to attract it.
22 December – January 19
Saturn in your sign is obviously not exactly a barrel of laughs. It has its positives, but overall it’s all about you stepping up, growing up and becoming accountable for your past actions.
You can’t alter what has happened but if you learn from it – really learn from it – then chances are it won’t happen again. There’s an old saying “to goodness and wisdom we make only promises. Pain, we obey.” Think about where you hurt and grow from it.
20 January – February 18
This week the planet of pushing ahead and chasing success, Mars, starts a retrograde cycle in your sign. This is very significant for you.
Hopefully you have done a lot of your own pushing ahead in the past few weeks and months, because this week you could feel a bit like you’re either coming to something of a standstill or even going backwards. Remember, life goes in cycles, and this Mars reversal in Aquarius means this cycle is about slowing down.
February 19 – March 20
This should be an overall good week thanks to a link between your ruling planet and the planet of caresses, silky underwear and love, Venus. If your life has been too humdrum lately, with too much work and not enough pleasure, commit to looking after yourself this week.
Ask yourself “What is the most loving thing I could do for myself?” and do that. Things are going to start changing for you now. Direct your future by declaring yourself “worth it”.
