March 20 to April 19
The week is dominated by a powerful, 90-degree aspect between the Sun and Pluto. The Sun is moving through your star sign, while Pluto is in the career and status sector of your solar chart. As a result of this aspect you’re going to be very ambitious. You’ll be looking for ways of getting ahead, and in many cases you’ll be ruthless. I am not saying that this is a good thing or a bad thing ñ it’s just the way it is, right now. And whatever your ambitions, you should resist the temptation to shout about them. Because sometimes a silent approach brings the best results, especially if you have to deal with lots of competitors. He or she that talks the loudest usually falls the quickest and the furthest! I should also say that for best results you’ll concentrate on one thing, with everything you’ve got. Once the lock breaks, through the sheer force of your will-power, you’ll start moving forward at the speed of light. Turning to your love life, and partners and lovers want to talk. You might have other ideas, but this week selfishness should be avoided.
April 20 to May 20
Mercury is making a favourable aspect to Venus, your ruling planet. So it’s a great week for communicating. However I’m not talking about mouthing off your opinions to everyone you meet ñ no, communication is a two-way process. You have to listen to what other people are saying, without passing judgement. It’s a slow process, and you might feel that you’re getting nowhere, but in all your endeavours you are building up trust. You’re also making yourself more popular, slowly but surely. But sometimes it’s important to keep a secret ñ there are aspects of your personality and lifestyle that there’s no need to talk about, even to people you know very well. Later on, when circumstances have changed, you can afford to be more open. Looking at the specific area of your love life, and if you’re a single Taurus, or you’re looking for someone new, then a person who is taller than average, with a versatile intellect, would suit you down to the ground. And such a person could be useful not just in terms of romance ñ they might also make an excellent business partner.
May 21 to June 20
Your friends could be hard to handle. They’ll be making lots of demands and they could also be playing power games. It’s an environment that you might enjoy for short periods of time, but for long stretches it won’t be worth the effort. So on balance, you should probably give your social life a miss ñ especially if you’re dealing with people in a group, rather than as individuals. As far as one-to-one contacts are concerned, the situation is much better. Mercury is making a favourable aspect to Venus, and as a result you’re going to be a lot more sensitive than usual. You’ll understand what makes people tick, and you’ll know what to say ñ and most importantly, what not to say. The Mercury-Venus aspect could also give a boost to your psychic powers. You’ll have a feeling about the key individuals in your life, that will be difficult to shake off. The feeling may not be one hundred percent right, but at some level it will approximate to the truth. In your career you’re given another chance to perform a particular task and it’s not a chance you should miss.
June 21 to July 21
There are things going on that you don’t completely understand. They’re happening under the surface, and in the long run they could be very significant. It’s a situation where you need to have your eyes and ears open, but at the same time you mustn’t over-react. Let things develop, in their own quiet way, and prepare yourself for the next stage. After all, at some point you’ll be clear about what’s happening, and you’ll be in a better position to take action. In terms of relationships, partners are saying less than usual, but that doesn’t mean that they’ve got nothing to say. They’re doing a lot of thinking and feeling, and they’re reaching some important conclusions. And when they’re good and ready they’ll explain themselves. On a different note, friends and colleagues are broadening their horizons, and they’re starting to understand that the world is full of possibilities. If you don’t want to get left behind, you need to engage with them, in a constructive and helpful way.
July 22 to August 22
The Sun, your ruling planet, makes a powerful aspect to Pluto. As a result you’re going to be pulled in two directions. You’ll want to do something different, that takes you far away from your everyday life. Perhaps you’ll be thinking about travel? Or else focusing on some spiritual pursuit? And in terms of your career, you won’t be happy with the usual pursuits, and you’ll want to do something that stretches you. However you’re going to be very focused on detail, almost obsessively so. If things aren’t done right you’ll get annoyed, and as a result it might be difficult to go as fast as you’d like. On a slightly different note, some Leos will start putting a lot of emphasis on health and fitness. You’ll want to be fitter and healthier than you are, and you’ll go out of your way to take the appropriate action. But just because you want to be healthy doesn’t mean that you should go over the top. Sometimes extreme measures can have unintended consequences. Nonetheless, if your lifestyle is unhealthy then now is a perfect time to change it.
August 23 to September 22
It’s OK for life to be complicated, and you don’t always have to know what’s going to happen next. Just stay with the situation, and see what you can learn from it. After all, just because something is complicated, doesn’t mean that you’re directly affected. Also, through your analytical skills you can start sorting the problem out. You can work out what’s important and what’s not, and you can help both yourself and other people to simplify the situation. In terms of money, at first sight things are as clear as mud, and you may be unsure which way to turn – especially if you’re dealing with shared financial arrangements. Yet if you do some digging and prodding, it won’t be long before you get some answers, and you’ll then have a clear idea about your next move. After all, once you can distinguish between the good people and the bad people, it’ll be easy to make decisions. Finishing up with your love life, and I would suggest that you don’t rush into anything. Right now you’re not very powerful, and it would be easy for partners and lovers to lead you a merry dance. Yet Mercury, your ruler, is making a favourable aspect to Venus. You and someone else can click together very nicely, but somehow the power equation has to be balanced.
September 23 to October 22
Mercury makes a favourable aspect to Venus, your ruling planet. So this week you’ll be communicating very well – and I am not just talking about words. You’ll be sensitive to what’s going on around you, and you’ll understand the people you’re dealing with. In this light, your body language will be excellent, and with the right moves you’ll win everyone’s trust. Yet once the talking starts, you’ll give the impression that you know exactly what you’re talking about, even when you’re discussing fine details. You therefore mustn’t be afraid of listing facts and figures, especially in your working environment. You might feel that you’re being boring, but in reality you’ll have everyone’s attention, and they’ll be fascinated by what you have to say. Also, it’s a good week for giving advice. You’ve got everyone’s best interests at heart and if someone’s being stupid you can tell it as it is, without causing offence. Put another way, you mustn’t be afraid of causing a fuss – you’ve got a message to deliver, and now is the time to deliver it.
October 23 to November 21
This week there’s a lot of noise. Everyone’s got an opinion, everyone’s got something to say, and as a result there’s real confusion. What do you believe? Who’s talking rubbish? Who is the wise person in the corner who everyone is ignoring? To deal with these issues, you need to take a step back from what’s going on, and start making maximum use of your intuitive powers. You can get a good feel for what’s going on, and at the same time you’re not someone who suffers fools gladly. And as time elapses, as people’s true nature starts to manifest, you’ll move into a commanding position, and you can start considering a return to the limelight. Turning to your love life, and Venus, your relationship ruler, is making a favourable aspect to Mercury. Partners have an active mind, and there are lots of things they want to talk about. And if you engage your nearest and dearest in a long and intimate conversation, the end result will be beneficial for both parties. If you want to encourage someone new to move into your life, then a sense of humour will be crucial.
November 22 to December 21
You’re so close, but so far. Or at least that’s how it feels. You can feel that you’re on the brink of an important discovery, and may of the clues are in place. However bringing everything together, into a coherent whole, seems too difficult. And as a result you might give up, and turn to new pastures. But if you did you’d be lazy. It’s a situation where you need to focus on what’s in front of you, and keep working until you’ve made the necessary links. Yes it will be difficult, but you’re quite able to deal with the situation. Indeed there’ll eventually be a moment of sublime intuition, where everything magically comes together. Elsewhere Mercury, your relationship ruler, is making a favourable aspect to Venus. Loved ones will be on good form, and they’ll know how to make you happy. Yet they’ll have a sense of order, and sloppiness on your part won’t be appreciated. So make sure that you honour your promises, and if you say that you’re going to do something, make sure that you do it properly.
December 22 to January 19
If you’re typical of your star sign, then you’ve got a cautious streak. You know that nothing can be taken for granted, that everything has to be worked for. While your solid, down to earth approach is to be commended, it’s possible that you take it too far. There’s a place for inspiration, provided it comes from your own heart and not someone else’s. So if you feel that the time has come to take a leap into the unknown, then don’t necessarily hold back. You might be moving into strange territory, but if you trust your instincts you’ll be just fine. Also, you’ll be good at finding things out, so if you feel that you haven’t got enough information then ask around. Other people will be happy to provide the answers. This means that in your career it’s important to be communicative. Don’t be afraid to discuss your opinions, and if colleagues and workmates have problems, then you must be ready to bend an ear. Your suggestions and feedback will be very useful, and may even make the difference between success and failure.
January 20 to February 18
You’ve got a feeling that something could go wrong. Not to you, but to another person, or organisation. If you so wish you can ignore this feeling, but is that the responsible thing to do? Your honesty might bring you criticism, and sometimes that can’t be helped. You have to do what’s right and let other people respond as they think fit. Those that listen to what you say will realise that you have saved them a lot of trouble. You might even have saved them from disaster! Moving on to your career, it’s another situation where you need to trust your intuition. In most cases you’ll be right and other people will be wrong, so it’s important that you stick to your guns. You’ll make things easier for yourself if you don’t engage in clever arguments. We’re dealing with the truth, and that’s something that can never be compromised. In your love life you give the impression of being a very calm and very sensible person, and if anyone’s looking for stability, you’re just the person to provide it.
February 19 to March 19
This week there’s a favourable aspect between Mercury and Venus. Mercury is moving through your star sign, while Venus is in the communication sector of your solar chart. So not surprisingly you’ll have lots of things to say for yourself, and your choice of words will be excellent. This means that if you want to persuade someone to do something then now is your chance. Your arguments will be clever and your voice very seductive. However if you’re not feeling very sociable, don’t worry – there are other ways of using the Mercury-Venus aspect. You might, for example, want to do some studying. You’ll get through the information very quickly, and in many cases you won’t have to read something twice – it will just stick, all by itself. And if you want to write things down, there’ll be a stream of consciousness, and before you know it you will have created pages and pages of quality material. Elsewhere partners and lovers want to get close, and the power of touch will be difficult to beat.
