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.
Taurus 20th April - 21st May. Venus is now in the part of your solar chart where security is comforting or threatened. The former is highlighted so no need to worry about losing your footing. You're slow to declare feelings but need to throw caution to the wind and trust in the Goddess of Love! She does, after all, have a habit of ruling your life!
Gemini 21st May - 21st June. Opportunities are likes buses, some come all at once but the wait in between can be tedious. Celebrate your birthday big time this year because Jupiter, joining your solar star from June 12th, means you've chance after chance falling from the heavens into your lap. Capitalise on this and expand your horizons, the world's shrinking but you're on a roll.
Cancer 21st June - 23rd July. If all life stemmed from the sea, you were first to scuttle on to dry land. An enormous relief from all that water but then you go and hide yourself under a rock! Come out and show your creative skills; cooking, recognising antiques from reproductions and spotting the genuine from the fake. It applies to people as well as inanimate objects!
Leo 23rd July - 23rd August. Mars in Libra signals a time to balance the accounts. It energises the 2nd house of your solar chart where money and possessions juggle for position in order of desire or necessity. Libra represents relationships so your relationship with personal resources is heightened throughout July and August. The law of averages isn't working at present, it's either up or down.
Virgo 23rd August - 23rd September. Meticulous moi? Yes you are and often accused of being fussy but the upside is if you're asked to do something you do it to a very high standard and that's always in demand. The pressure's been on lately but will ease off in July giving you respite and enabling you to view a job nobody could have done better.
Libra 23rd September - 22nd October. Pity Libra doesn't rule the planet then world peace wouldn't be a problem! You're such a co-operative individual always seeing both sides and trying to accommodate everybody but a challenge between Uranus and Pluto in July, symbolising sweeping changes everywhere, will test even you. Upshot is, being part of a collective problem means you're not responsible for it, test passed!
Scorpio 23rd October - 22nd November. A lovely lunation in Pisces in August will stir those still waters that run deep! Nobody realises how emotional you are because you hide your feelings well but you've longings like everyone else. Stirred but not shaken best describes affairs of the heart, you may get what you wish for, so wish with care, a Pisces moon can be deceptive.
Sagittarius 22nd November - 21st December. Christopher Isherwoood said he was a camera with the shutter open. This describes you, looking for opportunities to expand your repetoire. There's rumour in the stars that you're moving on from something. A lunar eclipse in your own sign on 4th June brings closure to one episode but opens another, just like the shutter, it's an open and shut case!
Capricorn - 21st December - 20th January. Your solar chart emphasises close relationships in July through a Full Moon in Capricorn and a New Moon in Cancer. This gives a chance to release those feelings you keep locked away. You can be shy, finding sentiment hard to express, but if you open your heart you'll find it soon fills up with the love you sometimes keep out.
Aquarius 20th January - 19th February. You join Pisces, Virgo and Leo in August when a phenomena called a 'blue moon', when two full moons appear in the same month, create cause and effect for your signs. A rare occurrence this, hence the saying 'once in a blue moon'. For you particularly, feelings need to be aired but carefully, it won't be cool to act cool.
Pisces 19th February - 20th March. There is such a thing as Universal Law which in Eastern philosophy is described as karma so with Jupiter moving through Gemini in your 3rd solar house watch what you say otherwise you'll have cause for regret. Chinese whispers abound so don't listen to them and certainly don't repeat them. Three wise monkeys - see nothing; hear nothing; say nothing!

20th January - 19th February
That old master of disguise Neptune symbolises confusion and disillusion but the other side is selfl ess and spiritual. A
crisis of identity is nearly over as the fi nal phase of Neptune in Aquarius comes to and end... There’s much to celebrate as you emerge better from the experience you’ve been put through an
