Aries 22 March – 20 April

Venus smiles upon you and you will be a magnet for opportunities. There is also a concentration of planets in your zone of money.  What are you buying, what are you keeping, what can you afford? This is a time to begin to look at building your resources. Not just money, but personal self-esteem. If you act worthy, then you will soon feel worthy, and other people will treat you accordingly.


Taurus 21 April – 21 May

With a New Moon then a succession of planets entering Taurus this is YOUR month. Opportunities will be everywhere. Just don’t miss the silver lining because you are looking for gold!  While other people will react to this energy and excitement that surrounds you; it may not all be positive. Now is the time to make happen what you want to be, where you want to do it and how you want to do it.


Gemini 22 May – 22 June

It may not be a quiet month, but it would help if it were! Your energies are focused on peace and the best way to find this is in solitude. Sacred places of any description will be a solace. Your sacred place may be with a cuppa in the middle of town, another’s may be in the bush. If you don’t know what induces a peaceful feeling then its time to learn this about yourself.


Cancer 22 June – 23 July

The crab likes taking care of its burrow, of its home.  One never sees a crab climb up to see the distant horizons. But dearest Cancerians, this is the month you will feel driven to do it and even need to do it. One can think about our immediate day to day concerns forever. But there comes a time to think about goals and objectives. What are your long term plans? What do you want to be doing in 5 years.


Leo 24 July – 23 Aug

Yours status is at its highest and you will be recognised for what you do. This is the month that you are acknowledged for what you do, and could even gain awards.  But if you have not been behaving yourself, then it too will be noticed! It is within your reach to have opportunities and success offered to you in the workplace, as well as the ability to easily solve problems.  Success is within your reach.


Virgo 24 Aug – 23 Sep

Virgo’s are known as the sign that focuses on detail. This is a month where your mind expands and there is a quest for truth and higher understanding. So forget your routines, the details and various worries! Let your heart and mind expand and gain new knowledge and even a new belief! Isn’t it time some of those old beliefs were released. Any study, travel, foreign contacts, or even dealings with the law, will have long lasting benefits.


Libra 24 Sep – 24 Oct

Lift the lid, look in hidden places. You are here right now to search for deep meaning and deeper intimacy.  Beginnings must follow an end. Endings are the potential of all beginnings. How do you cope with these transitions? Hold on or allow it to happen? On the profound level you are on the edge of something mysterious.  On the mundane level there is a focus on joint finances, shared assets, or perhaps a legacy to consider. 


Scorpio 25 Oct – 23 Nov

All relationships and your awareness of others is at its peak this month.  The outcomes are variable. For some of you, new people will enter your life and enhance it. For others, existing relationships grow. But for others, competition is heightened and perhaps significant people become open enemies.  You can just as easily tumble into love, or surrender to an opponent. They are two sides of the same coin.


Sagittarius 22 Nov – 21 Dec

I am going to tell you that this is a month of responsibilities, duty and work. And I will try and make it sound good. But you are a Sagittarian, and while you can do it well, you don’t enjoy these aspects of life. So smile and deal with it. Venus, the goddess of love and good times, will be helping to make it enjoyable as possible.  Also pay attention to your health and any bad habits.


Capricorn 24 Dec – 21 Jan

This is an exciting month of creativity and fun times. So its time to let down your guard and let yourself go. The inner child within needs some space to play and be free. Perhaps some romance, perhaps time with young children perhaps fun with a hobby. Perhaps some risk taking, but do be aware I am not promising success; just an escape. You are special and you are unique, so let others see the playful you.


Aquarius 22 Jan – 19 Feb

Home is where the heart is, and yours is well and truly needed at home. Renovations or a new décor would please you. Do you want to settle down and make a “nest” for yourself, or even to improve your nest? What do you want to do that involves your immediate family, and especially your parents? You will have help, but not from anybody involved in any job or work that you do.  


Pisces 20 Feb – 20 March

Important decisions and communications are the feature for this month.  Learning and finding out information will help solve puzzles. Either undertake some study, or become a good negotiator as it will help prevent arguments. There is somebody that will be able to help with information.  Follow your instincts and pick up the phone to ask for advice, or to give it. You have a voice, and opinions that need to be used.

 What’s that in the sky?

For all you night owls

As with last month, the only planet in the sky is Saturn, the ancient King of the Gods. He is hard to find but once you do see him with a telescope you will never forget.  Look on May 14th and he will be the creamy colored light just below the Moon.

Duck outside at bed time to say hello to the Scorpion rising in the east.  Look for the huge “S” in the sky. Let the Moon be your guide when she will be at his head on 18th May.


For all you early birds

No planets are going to be visible. They are all traveling so close to the Sun. But you will see the Scorpion begin his dive head first into the western horizon before the sun comes up. Then turn around to see the Southern Cross lying on its side.
