Aries: 20th March – 20th April
Now Mars is taking its time to travel through Libra, try not to dilly dally. It's unlike you to hesitate so what's holding you up? A commitment's required but who's committing to whom? Or who won't commit? As Pascal said, ‘It's not certain that everything is uncertain,’ so take a risk. Someone must for things to move along!
Taurus: 20th April – 21st May
The sun shortly moving into Aries gives courage to face your feelings. All earth signs can be on the cautious side, but with your gift of determination you can leave the shadows behind. The Spring equinox heralds the beginning of new life so honour the metaphor and join in, they say time waits for no one, so you've got some catching up to do!
Gemini: 21st May – 21st June
Thankfully some things have been straightened out and you can see clearly now, or can you? Depending on which half of the month you were born it will be clarity or confusion so follow this guide: early in Gemini, look through your own eyes, not those of others. Later, and you'll find a conversation you have will clear the air!
Cancer: 21st June – 23rd July
If you'd thought your luck had run out, think again. You've honed and polished a talent particular to you, now sell it! A talent isn't necessarily a skill or business acumen it can be a personality trait too and that's a very marketable asset. You're becoming more in demand so enjoy the success which is most definitely heading your way.
Leo: 23rd July – 23rd August
An assertive energy targeting domestic economy shows the red alert for finances. You must balance the books a bit more efficiently. You're not one who likes to curb expenditure, splashing out is more your style but it's not the moment to do it. What makes you feel most secure? Answer this question and you'll have the measure of what to do next.
Virgo: 23rd August – 23rd September
John Constable said, ‘I never saw an ugly thing in my life; for let the form of an object be what it may – light, shade and perspective will always make it beautiful.’ Apply this way of thinking to a present challenge and see it differently. Every challenge has merits we either learn or benefit from as you will too.
Libra: 23rd September – 22nd October
The new moon in Aries in March and full moon in Libra in April gives you the choice between starting something new or staying with the familiar. Looking at where Mars is placed it would suggest you stay with the familiar but maybe add a new dimension? If you start from scratch you'd have to find out where scratch is!
Scorpio: 23rd October – 22nd November
Venus in the compatible sign of Pisces at the beginning of April gives the chance to show your feelings. These are usually kept hidden from view but you've plenty of them and they need to come out to play. Swap intensity for light hearted passion because if you take out the leisure then you break Cupid's arrow and that just won't do!
Sagittarius: 22nd November – 20th December
In the myth of Sagittarius the centaur being half horse and half human looks for his/her evolved nature, parts of which rest in dignity, honour and openness of mind. These qualities are needed now to deal with a long standing problem coming to the surface yet again. Stay noble whatever comes at you and the day will be yours.
Capricorn: 21st December – 20th January
A taskmaster is required in part of your solar chart where groups and collective ideas need organisation. There's no–one better than you, with your practical and pragmatic approach to form and structure, to take control of a project seemingly going backwards, but in effect, is just on pause. A little push and shove is all that's required to get things moving.
Aquarius: 20th January – 10th February
No astrologer can predict an outcome, only a potential, so here it comes. Plans are afoot for a journey in late spring bringing about reconciliation. This isn't necessarily just about physical travel – it also connects to the mind and harmony of thought. Act now to bring this about and you may end up thinking an astrologer can predict the future!
Pisces: 19th February – 20th March Being the twelfth sign of the zodiac you're considered a very old soul and you're feeling it with the experiences of late; some good, some not so and some indifferent. Fortunately a New Moon in Pisces on 1st March and a rare annular eclipse in Taurus on 29th April sound the bell for change and a spring remembered creatively and emotionally.

20th March – 20th April
Uranus changes signs every seven years and is now travelling directly through Aries. What does this mean for you? Surprises, changes of routine and unexpected journeys. You've clocked up plenty of mileage recently so use cruise control and slow down Aries. You’ve obligations to those around you but you've obligations to yourself too, look at these and act upon them.
20th April – 21st May
January brings a new moon in Capricorn highlighting your solar chart where further education is concerned. Life has hard lessons to learn but these should be regarded as strengthening character because they bring wisdom and maturity. There are three educations: parental, schooling and the world, it's from the latter we gain most and it's presently teaching you.
21st May – 21st June
There's opportunity now to strengthen joint resources and make future plans. February brings communication to the fore and you may find yourself repeating the same words over again. Messages don't get through, wires get crossed and tempers fray. Ride this cycle out and apologise for delays even if they're not your fault. Good public relations are what you need now.
21st June – 23rd July
A full moon activates sensitivities so mid-January be prepared for emotional turmoil and mood change. Don't allow negativity to develop, throw that tee shirt away! Jupiter now in Cancer only happens every twelve years and is a golden opportunity to develop your skills so make hay while the sun shines and in ancient speak, the father of the gods will deliver!
23rd July – 23rd August
The first two months of the year are never the best for you, you're a sunny spirit so climatically this time of year isn't your best. Mid-February will however bring a turning point. It won't mean blazing sunshine at last, it's more of a heart-centred warmth that will fire you up, something's brewing and the heat is on.
23rd August – 23rd September
You're often accused of narrow mindedness but it's the desire to be precise and precision is what's required now. Those who say you're not seeing the wood for the trees need to bite their tongues. True at times perhaps, but look around too much now and you'll miss what's been staring you in the face all winter, problem-reaction-solution!
23rd September-22nd October
The Galactic Centre is a term used to denote the centre of gravity for our galaxy, but you're the centre of your universe where events are spiralling out of control. Saturn in a money angle of your chart can be earth shattering but it's only a phase and all phases pass, so stay grounded, things will settle down in time.
23rd October – 22nd November
Your sign is the only one with two images to express it, the scorpion and the eagle. One can sting itself to death and the other rise above everything and everyone. It's the latter you need to embrace as Saturn continues its transit through your sign so spread your wings and fly upwards until you soar above present manipulation in your life.
22nd November – 21st December
The full moon in Leo in February benefits you because it's in Leo, another fire sign, making a marvellous trine in your solar chart. Your mojo will be boosted and your entire system feeling that 2014 is going to be a good year. As one who looks for opportunities they abound especially where love is concerned. A heartfelt time then.
21st December – 20th January
Close relationships are centre stage with a bit of power play going on although not necessarily in a negative sense. Either way, there's an intensity that's pulling passion into your orbit although you may be playing a game of poker with it! Hopefully you've an ace up your sleeve as you don't want to lose the hand you're presently playing!
20th January – 19th February
You're well acquainted with change and although it's sometimes uncomfortable, you deal with it better than most. Just as well because your whole network of communications has been unpredictable and tiresome. This is likely to keep up until the end of February when hopefully you'll be able to sort out the chaos and find it wasn't as bad after all!
19th February – 20th March
I don't make predictions as such, but I' m making an exception for you. A wish is about to become a reality but it's secret so I won't expose it here. One cautionary note, make absolutely sure it's what you want in case all's not what it seems. Neptune in Pisces conjures up the dream factory, but has its nightmares too!

20th March - 20th April
Erich Fromm wrote a book called 'The Art of Loving', in your case it's more like loving the art but it's becoming a bore so increase the volume on romance, Christmas being a perfect time to do it. Magic’s in the air so conjure up a lovely illusion to soften the edges of your desires then make it a reality!
20th April - 21st May
Saturn now in the middle of Scorpio indicates you're half way through a problem and full moon in Taurus on 17th November suggests giving way on an issue that's become a tug of war between you and someone equally stubborn! When a book and a head collide and there’s a hollow sound it doesn't always mean it's the book!
21st May - 21st June
Your best quality is optimism and worst fault is inconsistency, you could sell sand to the Arabs but you might not deliver on time. As the festive period draws closer others have to make plans and your input is essential, lip service will not do and charm will be ineffective but adaptability will give good timing a helping hand.
21st - 23rd July
Your sign is generally associated with the Mother and its opposite sign Capricorn, the Father, but of course there are male Cancerians and female Capricorns, this is why so many of you Cancerians are engaged in a struggle with emotions, alpha male energy is coming at you. Confront delicate issues and be more assertive, you have to make a stand.
23rd July - 23rd August
You are your own creation and are right to take pride in it but remember you're still a work in progress. It's why you mustn’t take notice of criticism being aimed at you - critics feed on other people's efforts, so stay the lion or lioness you are - regal, proud and not deterred by those who seek to take your crown.
23rd August - 23rd September
In ancient times bread referring to food was considered a gift from the gods, not the slang term now used for money -heavan won't provide that, you must. Mars arriving in December in the second zone of your chart representing money and security suggests curbing your spending, wrong time maybe but remember it was bread that came from heaven not pennies!
23rd September - 22nd October
You've dealt with much soul searching and shocks during the past ten months. Just as well you've extra energy this December to meet a social whirl because it's what you like and what you need. Fun can be exhausting but it's invigorating so pull out the cork and put some fizz into your life in preparation for a new year.
23rd October - 22nd November
Scorpios will feel a force field around them this November due to a powerful eclipse on the 3rd and a full moon in Taurus on the 17th. A spectacular storm will clear the air for a fresher feel to your life, you won't exactly sparkle like the frost underfoot but you will feel the warmth of the home fires in December!
22nd November - 21st December
A celebrity is known for their well knowness that may not be you, however you're famous for having answers to many questions so answer this: Why do people sometimes take umbridge over what you say? You don't know? Look up the word tactless because it's something you need to avoid being as Christmas draws near and chaos begins.
21st December - 20th January
Life can be frittered away by detail so look at the bigger picture. Solstice sees a lot of activity around the sign of the goat meaning you'll move around more than usual, untethered from trivia. You’ve a lot to organise this winter so open your eyes to possibilities where before there were impossibilities. That's what comes from looking rather than thinking!
20th January - 19th February
Yule means the yoke of the year, the point of balance across the lowest point of sunlight, now what does this piece of science mean to you? Metaphorically a load’s off your shoulders and you’ll feel lighter in spirit. You're in the process of unburdening yourself so feel free to follow the dictates of your own heart for a change.
19th February - 20th March
Most people don't see a practical side to you but there is one and it's needed now to deal with opposition from someone trying to be assertive over a proposed plan. The problem is logistics, it's all too complex, simplicity is what's required and you're good at this so three key words to success here are - trim the sails!

Aries 20th March – 20th April
There's a record by Sade called 'Soldier of Fortune' about love and sums up a position you're in. Joint resources aren't going too well currently so look at this because they underpin your relationship zone and perhaps they shouldn't. To be independent one needs sometimes to separate out - co-dependency in financial matters creates limitation. Love freely without putting a price on it!
Taurus 20th April – 21st May
Your amazing loyalty's being tested and it's draining you. Once involved in somebody's problems you get lost in them and, being a good listener, become the sounding board. I'm throwing you a compass with the arrow pointing to 'way out'. It's this: Stop listening. Your story teller will soon find another ear the size of Dumbo's! You're then off the hook.
Gemini 21st May – 21st June
Are you a butterfly or a flutterby? Look at why you're seen as such a charmer but with little attention span. There's no doubt you're good company, entertaining and quite knowledgeable but work’s needed on making people feel they're of interest too! Call this a cosmic rap on the knuckles to remind you to listen a little more attentively!
Cancer 21st June – 23rd July
Your 'power animal' in astrology is any that have a shell including turtles and tortoises. Their virtue is protectiveness towards the vulnerable and this is where your strength lies now because someone in your circle needs a strong arm and a compassionate heart to see them through. Sensitivity is required and who better than a water sign to apply that quality when needed?
Leo 23rd July – 23rd August
Jupiter in the zone of your solar chart where ideals and dreams are hidden is giving an understanding of love and wisdom and what they mean to family life. You may have thrown three coins in a fountain but wishing won't be the answer. You’ve worked hard to establish the bonds that cannot be broken and guess what? You've done it!
Virgo 23rd August – 23rd September
The new moon and full moon in September give dark and light to a relationship matter. An issue that’s caused concern will later be resolved through a declaration of feelings that make you realise just how valued you are. Whatever your age, there are times when you've felt invisible and taken for granted but autumn will prove how wrong you were!
Libra 23rd September – 22nd October
Out of all the signs you are the one that has difficulty with decision making, just as well you're a peacemaker and not a warrior! Whilst September is a mulling over time, October comes in demanding you make up your mind. You're being pulled toward an answer and it's one where action will speak louder than words.
Scorpio 23rd October – 22nd November
Family matters are pressing and although you're not one who likes to bend to another's willpower, I am afraid there's no choice. Developments require a joint decision and everybody needs their say; that involves quite a few strong wills! Step to one side for once and allow the powers that be, those which are outside yourself, to take their course.
Sagittarius 22nd November – 21st December
Ta Dah! Venus moves into your sign in October making you the most attractive to the opposite sex that you've been all year. So your best qualities will be on view and they are: vivacity, enthusiasm, warmth, generosity, friendliness and freedom of spirit. So, as Autumn draws on, the weather may be cooler but you're a little ray of sunshine!
Capricorn 21st December – 20th January
Vision is the art of seeing the invisible. You cannot see what isn't there but you can perceive without reason. With Jupiter in your opposite sign of Cancer you're beginning to understand more about yourself and how powerful your intuition is. It's invaluable at this point because sensitive issues need a clear mind and sharp eye. You have both!
Aquarius 20th January – 19th February
As an astrologer I'm often asked 'what does the future hold for me?' and my answer is 'I don't know'. I only translate potentials in your solar chart which act as a guide. But I can say that emphasis on close relationships suggests they take centre stage if there’s to be any future or at least one that's desirable to both parties.
Pisces 19th February – 20th March
Full Moons in Pisces are time for reflection and thoughts about the recent past. September brings this window for you to look through and see if you could have done better. Nothing's ever perfect but you can make it the best it can be, so if you need to add an attachment to your previous actions, now is the time.
