Aries 21 March – 19 April

With planets entering your fun zone I bet there is an opportunity to enjoy yourself, or there may be a celebration about to occur. News comes to put a smile upon your face and it’s the perfect month to beautify or buy something for the home. Spend some time with your feet up and resting. You will get a chance to think and revise bold new ideas or projects begun earlier in the year.


Taurus 20 April – 20 May

While this month’s main theme is on your need to communicate, there will be issues, as recent discoveries and information may not be all that you expect.  While it may appear to be good news, you may be misled; or you need to find out more before you act. A journey, a possible trip or a holiday brings up unexpected emotions.  Pay attention to rules and regulations as there could be dealings with the law. 


Gemini 21 May – 21 June

The man is the moon says to pay attention to your finances. What have you been blind to? What remains hidden from view? This is the month to lose money or valuables, so take care. But there will be a silver lining as good fortune will come when you start to take “ownership” of your money and any assets you share with others. Talk to various trained advisors and become money wise.


Cancer 23 June – 22 July

Don’t be surprised if you feel “out of sorts”. There is an eclipse of the Moon in Cancer bringing a sense of awkwardness and uncertainty.  But Venus will soon enter your sign to bring a much-needed sparkle into your month. You will radiate her energy of peace and relaxation and therefore find you are able to attract attention. Decide on what sort of attention you would like to attract; and let it happen.


Leo 23 July – 22 Aug

Emotions you thought were hidden, or you passed off as belonging to family members will resurface. Information is also coming your way which may herald those repressed feelings, or it may simply be a busy time of communication and discussions. You will need to make decision and there will be no time to rest as its busy, busy, busy. Keep your head by finding a place of solitude every now and then.


Virgo 23 Aug – 22 Sep

There will be more contact with groups and networks of like minded people this month. You may like to join a new hobby or organised activity. Younger people will want your total attention and friends will seek your company. But they are not telling you everything. Be supportive and don’t force them to speak, as you will find out when the time is right.


Libra 23 Sep – 23 Oct

Do people really see you the way you thought they did? This month you discover that they see more of the “real you” than you thought. You may feel uncomfortable, but it will bring benefits and you will be appreciated. Any issues at work come to a peak then finally settle in your favor. Expect impulsive action or a change of mind by your partner or loved one.


Scorpio 24 Oct – 22 Nov

I recommend a holiday or an escape of any sort! Its time to move; so get going. If you drag your feet you will soon be bored and restless. There is the possibility of new study, or and new topic you need to learn. Contact with the law will feel scary and raise all sorts of issues, but they will be helpful and on your side.


Sagittarius 23 Nov – 21 Dec

The eclipse affects your money zone, and hence finances are important to you this month. Existing issues may resurface or new problems arise, but there is help at hand which will soon turn any situation positive.  To receive this help; all you have to do is ask. Don’t be caught unawares and double check that there have been no unexpected changes with anything you share with another person.  


Capricorn 22 Dec – 19 Jan

The loved, and the not so loved, people in your life will need you and draw you into their issues, current concerns as well as their joys.  You may find you are a stabilizing influence in their life, and as a dependable Capricorn you are well suited to this task. New love could blossom, especially when the Full Moon shines in your sign and this could arouse strong emotions.


Aquarius 20 Jan – 18 Feb

Listen to what other people have to say.  Even innocent words or news stories have great meaning for you this month. Listen and learn. Some will show you how to improve your health by letting go of bad habits. Some will show you how to make deeper connections, and some will help you achieve your goals. You are not alone; other people will be coming more and more into your life.


Pisces 19 Feb – 20 March

A youthful energy enters your life this month.  This can come through your children, or other young people. They may not start the month being happy, but it will soon change and they develop an optimistic open spirit which will change their outcomes.  Then this becomes a great month for a party or celebration.  Dress yourself up, and be as creative as you dare.



A lot of people do not realise that the Sun moves into the 12 signs of the zodiac on slightly different dates each year. If you are born close to the border of two signs then you are on the cusp and you are a blend of the two sun signs. The dates here are the 2011 Sun Ingress dates for Australia.

Quote of the Month


You have to change your reality.

Want to change your reality?

Change your focus!

Want to change your focus?

Change the questions you are asking!

                  Tony Robbins


To expand on this idea, try asking this question for yourself.

“How can I be even more………?”

I’ll let you fill in the blank. (honest, loving, successful, loved, healthy,….)      Kerry Galea

For all you night owls

Saturn is following the sun into the western horizon and will disappear before bedtime. If you are up at around midnight you can see Jupiter rise in the east.

The Scorpion will be easily seen high overhead and is worth going outside for a look. Look for a long curving row of stars and then his nippers and tail will be very obvious.  Let the Moon be your guide on the 11th when she will be between his nippers.


For all you early birds

By the early hours before dawn Jupiter will be visible high overhead. The reddish light of Mars will be seen rising in the east. You may lucky enough to see Aldebaran in the eye of the Bull, and to his left is the beautiful cluster of the Pleiades sitting low on the eastern horizon.  On the 24th July there will be a  conjunction of the Moon and Jupiter. Then by the 28th the thin crescent Moon will have moved next to Mars. Both are beautiful sights. But you will have to be up early! Brrrrr.
