LIBRA

The conjunction of Mercury, Jupiter with Venus, as the latter moves in your own sign, means you can expect a couple of peaceful harmonious days – but then the Solar eclipse activates the Saturn/Neptune square, rather than making you feel strong will cause frustration as communication becomes muddled and you feel out of control. Work on your own and wait a couple of days for everything to improve. Don’t become irritated by your partner and family – organize a girls night out or update your wardrobe. It works wonders!

SCORPIO

The conjunction of Mercury, Jupiter and Venus, as the latter moves into Libra, makes you feel inspired to organize social events, join a new group, with your partner being your best supportive friend. But then the Solar eclipse conjuncts the Saturn/Neptune square and suddenly no-one wants to co-operate, leaving you feeling unwanted, frustrated and disheartened… Don’t be – just relax, don’t argue or burst into tears. Instead, wait quietly, using your creative talents. You actually enjoy a little drama – use it in your dress.

SAGITTARIUS

As your personal planet Jupiter conjuncts Mercury and Venus, as the latter moves into Libra, you are favourably noticed by everyone listening to you, noticing not only your talents but your charm and beauty too.

PISCES

ARIES

The week starts on a high with everyone happy, good humoured at work no matter how busy you are.

Your family will also be stressed by the eclipse so do what you can to relax. Exercise will help – and don’t comfort eat!

TAURUS

With your personal planet, Venus, conjunct Mercury and Jupiter your life will be happy, romantic as you attract everyone to you. Venus then moves into Virgo when décor, design and renovations could take on new impetus – and also says this is the perfect time for a beauty treatment or new hairstyle.

Everything will be better next week – meantime avoid flu…

GEMINI

Your family and home are the source of your greatest pleasure and your influence grows by the day. If thinking of moving home, negotiating a new lease or purchasing a property, this is a good time to start. But then the Solar eclipse conjunct the Saturn/Neptune square will make you feel disillusioned about your home and other goals – don’t make quick decisions as everything will look better next week. Stay as self-sufficient as you can as Mercury is retrograde – your emotions are working over-time…

CANCER

A busy week racing between meetings, sharing information and ideas but then Mercury moves retrograde making it harder to make a decision, scattering your mind in many directions.

Shedding too many tears is not your best bet this week – and will be exacerbated by too many stimulants….

LEO

Finance and your core values are at the centre of your life this week – but when Mercury moves retrograde, followed by the Solar eclipse joining the Saturn/Neptune square, money worries raise their head.
