Aries 20 March – 19 April

Venus, the “goddess of love and all good things”, enters your sign and she brings an aura of magnetic attraction. So it is impossible to hide. So you may as well let yourself true inner self shine, and see what happens. Have a think on what you would like to come into your life. Make your bucket list. Change is in the air!


Taurus 20 April – 20 May

More responsibilities and extra duties for you at work. Even those of you that are house bound will be busy chasing dust! For all of you; emotions will run high with anything to do with family issues. All this could make you feel stuck. The solution is to begin working towards the future; what are all your hopes and wishes?


Gemini 21 May – 20 June

There is no way you can stay still. So you may as well go with it, and enjoy yourself as you move from one place to another. Friends will have some surprises for you as they are ready for a change. They want you to be involved, and you are keen, but look for way out as a situation at work will soon sidetrack you.


Cancer 21 June – 21 July

Money continues to be a focus at the beginning of this month and any issues could lead to emotional reactions. Tensions are really due to feelings of insecurity, and will not be about the actual dollars and cents of life. A solution or a discovery will surprise you. So it’s time to get good advice. Some personal (”me”) time, will help you feel in control.


Leo 22 July – 22 Aug

With the Full Moon in your sign there is a tendency to overreact. It’s best to reflect before reacting, and if people upset you it is a good idea to simply ask “what do you mean by that”. Putting all your eggs in one basket will not work, so diversify your time and energy. During this month you need to negotiate how to share something important.


Virgo 23 Aug – 22 Sep

Relationships are so confusing! And the confusion level just got higher. There is nothing you can do to make logical sense of anything to do with the special people in your life, and for any organized Virgo that is a traumatic experience. What can I say; just let it go, because it’s going to be happening for quite a while. So get used to it.


Libra 23 Sep – 22 Oct

Amidst this continuing time of darn hard work, your loved ones, or not so loved ones, are going to be doing something surprising. It’s your choice to be upset or not. Or to join with them, or not. Hey; it may liven up your life, so give them a chance to do what they must do. Good regimes of diet and exercise will help any health issues.


Scorpio 23 Oct – 21 Nov

Young people, or those young at heart, are exciting, spontaneous, and carefree. Is that a hassle? They are simply doing what they are supposed to do. Let them awaken the inner child in you. Isn’t it time? Another theme in the stars is a spotlight focusing on work and your connection to the ruling authorities (bosses). There is no need to take the situation so literally, or so personally?


Sagittarius 22 Nov – 20 Dec

Say yes if you haven’t done so already. This is a month for a celebration or for an exciting social event that you have longed for. You can even take a trip or book a holiday. The stars want you to have some fun. So you may as well oblige!  Later in the month the focus will return to things that must be done at home.


Capricorn 21 Dec – 19 Jan

Money continues to be on the forefront of your mind. And if you have not sorted it out by now then you will tend to worry. If you made a decision, then stick with it. Not making a decision is actually a decision not to do anything. Later in the month you get a second change to make up your mind and therefore make yet another decision.


Aquarius 20 Jan – 17 Feb

All dreams have a cost attached. And right now you are not being very practical about the cost. If other people are getting emotional then it may be due to your blinkered vision about money, or it may not. But I bet its money! A sudden snap decision will either make it better, or make it a whole lot worse. Think carefully!


Pisces 19 Feb – 19 March

Golly I wish I were a Pisces right now! More luck and greater opportunities for you to enjoy yourself this month. Although your energy levels may be lowered. If you do have ongoing hassles, then now is the time that they can be turned around. Even in a storm you will have the opportunity to see the silver lining and hence develop a positive spirit.




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 2012 Sun Ingress dates for Australia.

For all you night owls

Venus and Jupiter are the bright stars seen in the west. They will be visible for a few hours after sunset. Jupiter is the one higher in the sky.  For a beautiful sight go outside and have a look when he moon will be next to Venus on the 26th, in-between them on the 27th and next to Jupiter on the 27th February.

Then turn around and look out for the reddish gleam of Mars in the East.

If you have clear views of the western horizon then look out for a brief glimpse of Mercury just after sunset. He is following the Sun, and if you sit and watch you will see him disappear. He’s easy to spot as you will see him move! The planets were known by the ancients as the “wanderers” that moved differently to the background stars.

And if you stay up late you will see Saturn rise up in from the eastern horizon.

Taurus the Bull is also clear and let the Moon be your guide as on the 1st Feb she will be near Pleiades in the heart of Taurus, then on the 2nd the Moon will be below Aldebaran in the eye of the Bull, and finally on the 3rd the Moon will be between the horns of the Bull.


For all you early birds

For the early risers out there Saturn and Mars will still be up. Mars is reddish and will be towards the east and creamy colored Saturn is overhead. Let the Moon be your guide as she will be next to Mars on the 14th and Saturn on the 13th February.

The Scorpio will be rising up from the eastern horizon and clearly visible. Antares is the bright star in his head. The Moon will be right next to Antares on 16th February. I love looking at the Scorpion. Once you recognize him, you will always be able to spot him when he arrives in the sky above you.


Have a great month
