With Mercury in retrograde motion, we’re revisiting the ideas it helped to initiate back in March. It’s time to look at what’s working, what isn’t, and begin making necessary changes. The New Moon provides an earthy, stable base upon which new foundations can be built. But with Venus now direct, the rebuilding doesn’t need to be difficult. The planets aren’t like whips, cracking under the ancient Egyptian sun, but we can still begin building futures that will one day be wondrous.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

The history of science is filled with tales of code-breakers who could detect hidden messages by studying complex patterns. There are secrets waiting to be revealed in your world too. With Mercury retrograde in your sign, someone is saying one thing but doing another. Your mission is to find a way to accurately read and understand the information you’re receiving. But, you can’t just be logical. There are emotional issues involved. The return of Venus to your sector of the zodiac will empower your instincts. Trust them! In your love life: Why do some people feel they must control you. Once you know what’s really wrong you can start making it right.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

My three-year-old has recently discovered cookies. Each day, after nursery, he excitedly asks if we can pop into the shop to buy some biscuits. For someone who’s only just discovering the delights of confectionery, there are so many things to try. From the humble hobnob to the jammiest of dodgers, each represents a foray into a delicious new world. No matter what’s been spoiling your appetite lately, this week, life begins to taste sweet. And, if you’re willing to try a new sensation, things really can turn out to be sensational! In your love life: You are due to discover great fulfillment in the very area of life where you have lately had to endure great discomfort.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

Do you feel uncomfortable when life isn’t nice and neat and tidy? Even if your environment has clear surfaces, there will always be cupboards containing all kinds of secrets. And inwardly? Much the same applies. You may be able to act as if all is straightforward, but your thoughts are in a jumble — worse than the kind that you find behind a TV, or a computer, when too many extra gadgets have been plugged into it. But you can untangle a messy mindset. With Mercury retrograde, go slowly, strand by strand, and you’ll feel far better. In your love life: It really isn’t the winning that counts. What matters is not how good at something you can be, it’s how good you are.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 22)

Despite appearances, nothing stays still. Even when we enter an empty room, devoid of activity, we’re surrounded by vibrating atoms whose movements provide the force that keeps the walls solid, and the roof supported. And all this is happening on a planet hurtling through space at thirty kilometres per second. Yet sometimes we can make it appear still. And sometimes a little pause for breath is all we need in order to realise how different our life can be. This week, take the time to reflect. A new day dawns, but at its own pace. In your love life: What matters more, elation or explanation? Don’t just sit and think. Throw yourself into something you truly love.

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 23)

Don’t worry about a thing, ‘cos every little thing’s gonna be all right,” sang Bob Marley. Many of us love songs that contain messages of this nature. Why can’t we resist them? Can’t we see how this world is full of things to worry about? And if we take our eye off the ball, and stop worrying, even for a moment, don’t we make things ten times worse? Well, actually, no we don’t! And really, you don’t need to worry this week. The New Moon really does suggest things can start turning out better than ‘all right’. This is my message to you! In your love life: Trust your heart. As holidays approach, allow yourself to be courageous enough to honour your deepest feelings.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in!’ There’s a danger, this week, that you could find yourself sounding like Al Pacino in the Godfather Part III. Actually, you’re in the second part of your own trilogy. Mercury, now retrograde, is conjunct Uranus again for the penultimate time this year. It signals a time to revisit a change in your life that isn’t as permanent as you had once thought. Though this may be frustrating, it brings an opportunity. Learn all you can, and you’ll gain the insight to finally progress to the next level. In your love life: Do what is necessary to keep stress at bay. And that deadline that worries you? Breathe, relax, refuse to be rushed.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

Are you adopting positions you’re not completely sure you want to be in? There are aspects of your situation that you like, and many things to be grateful for; yet there are factors that you’ve been feeling uncomfortable about. It seems as if life has been less than fair, and you must deal with circumstances that you resent. You can let this bug you, or you can rise above it. Actually, you don’t have a choice! With Venus now direct and about to join Mercury in Aries, accept, trust and prepare for a week that brings surprisingly deep joy. In your love life: Aiming for the right thing but taking a complex route? Mars warns you not to push anything or anyone too hard.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

There’s nothing wrong with being a private person. After all, wearing your heart on your sleeve creates messy situations, and showing vulnerability makes you… well vulnerable! But being guarded creates problems of its own. Especially when you want to make a fresh start in an important relationship. Don’t be afraid of your passion this week. The depth of your feelings doesn’t mean that you’re losing control. It’s a powerful asset. If you want to deepen your connection to someone, you just have to try once more, with feeling. In your love life: Whose rules are you playing by? Is there nothing you can do about a difficult situation? You can rewrite the rulebook.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Libraries contain many books. Those books contain many stories but they’re nothing compared to the tales that could be told by all the billions of people who live (or have ever lived) in this world. Each of us has been on a series of great adventures. Though we look admiringly on those whose sagas seem to have been more dramatic, we really can’t say that any one person’s life has meant more (or less) than any other’s. As Mercury links to Saturn, in your sign, you’re dealing with something unique this week. You’ll handle it well. In your love life: You’re cross about someone’s role in a sensitive situation. The challenge is tough but the reward will be great.

Capricon (Dec 22 - Jan 21)

Fantastic Mr Fox. King Odysseus of Ithaca. Kevin in Home Alone. All are classic (ish) examples of how cunning is required to seal great victories. And this week, you’re being encouraged to take a fresh, creative approach to an issue that is refusing to go away. There’s no point lamenting your inability to stop this situation from recurring. There are some things that are beyond your control. Instead, you can celebrate a newly rejuvenated talent for improvisation. Adapt to this challenge, and you may even begin to relish it! In your love life: Fight or flight? No room for compromise? Pick one of your options. If it feels right, think no further. If not, think again.

Aquarius (Jan 22 - Feb 19)

How do model-makers get ships inside bottles? How do magicians seemingly saw people in half? These feats appear impossible until the trick is revealed. Agatha Christie used a similar technique in her murder mystery novels. She finished her victim off early, then bemused her readers with chapters full of diversions and irrelevant ‘clues’. This week, if you carefully revisit the evidence, you’ll begin to understand a matter that’s been baffling you. Mercury’s links, with both your rulers, help you see the secret. Everything will become obvious. In your love life: Your big issue is not about success or failure but about finding wisdom. You’re about to start doing brilliantly.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

Has the cat got your tongue?’. What a curious expression. There are far more likely scenarios that make it hard to communicate. Laryngitis for one. Or simple shyness. And if anyone did run away with your tongue, I’m not sure why it would end up with a cat. This week, if you’re hunting for the speech-thief, it could be retrograde Mercury that is your would-be cat-burglar. But even if your wires are crossing, you can find a new way to communicate an important message. Just let your heart, and not your head, do the talking. In your love life: Is there a persistent effort to get you to reconsider something? Give this enough respect to at least consider the offer.
