WEEKLY ASTROGUIDE


Oscar Cainer

This week not only brings the Solstice; it also hosts a competition between enthusiastic, adventurous Jupiter and imaginative, dreamy Neptune to see who can conjure up the most exciting plans for the coming weekend. They create a frisson of excitement that encourages innovative moves forward. With Mercury and Mars converging opposite Pluto, there’s little chance of being able to take a back seat and watch the action. If we respond to impulses and hunches, breakthroughs are possible.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

Although honesty is the best policy, it’s never a good idea to tell everyone your truth. It’s important to choose the right person and the right time before divulging precious information; and ‘spilling the beans’ can sometimes lead to a mess. This Solstice week, some things are for you to know and for other people to find out. If you’re asked a straight question, respond with a straight answer. But, in matters of the heart, discretion is the best policy. Choose the right moment before sharing your deepest feelings. In your love life: Give as fully as your heart is inspired to share. Accept what is freely, lovingly offered. More than that may be asking too much.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

Many ideas are great when they’re in the theoretical stage, but not so straightforward when it comes to putting them into practice. You’re currently embroiled in the real-life consequences of an ambitious project. A series of unpredictable events has created a degree of turmoil which is putting you off track and causing you to doubt the brilliance of an original idea. As we approach the Solstice, all you need to do is adjust to the latest development. This week, you can still make great progress. In your love life: Don’t inflame a silly situation; let it heal. Your heart won’t be the only thing that thrives as a result of a forgiving gesture.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

We’re all capable of putting ourselves through needless misery. When we project our fears into the future, we tie ourselves up in knots of anxiety. ‘What if’ questions lead to us prejudge what’s on the horizon before it becomes part of our reality. Then we wonder why our lives feel stuck. Don’t waste the powerful energy of this Solstice week worrying about something that hasn’t even happened. Real magic is on offer. If you make space for it, you’ll see the glittering bright potential that lies before you. In your love life: Beware of pressure this week. A misunderstanding can be resolved, as long as it isn't made into an unnecessary row.
#Gemini Daily Prediction

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 22)

The Solstice always empowers you. It gives you courage to say and do things that make people sit up and take notice. Even if you're unaware of the consequences of the change in your confidence, the respect you gain stays with you and you benefit from its effects. Rather than focusing on what's not quite up to your standards, try, this Solstice week, to seek out the positives and work with them. The cosmos brings the gifts of energy and innovation. With confidence, you can make a brilliant decision. In your love life: Possibilities revolve around opportunities to be more self-contained. As you do that, you may find yourself more in demand.

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 23)

What would Will Shakespeare have thought if he’d known that his plays would feature in school curriculums and be the focus of exam questions across the world? I wonder if it would have influenced his stories? One of his famous lines about ‘sound and the fury signifying nothing’ might have been written for your forecast this week. The Solstice signals the end of an alarm that’s been ringing in your life. You can stop letting someone else’s worries affect your own. It’s time to make your own noise! In your love life: We all need to be less of a victim of our needs! Push aside an irrelevant aspiration; find freedom to seek lasting fulfilment.
#Leo Daily Prediction

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

Most of the time, people don’t actually mean to behave badly towards others. Usually, they’re unaware that their actions are causing offence, or don’t understand that they’re causing upset. When we’re on the receiving end though, it’s hard to believe that we’re not being subjected to deliberate treatment. We wonder how they could be so inconsiderate whilst they wonder why we’re being so sensitive. This Solstice week, rather than falling into the blame trap, there’s a lot to be gained by seeking peace. In your love life: Surrounded by needy 'takers'. Draw a line. Make firm distinctions. Put aside any insecurities; trust your deepest feelings.
#Virgo Daily Prediction

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

With the Solstice comes the return of clarity. You're already starting to feel less baffled or befuddled by the confusing scenario you've been so caught up in. Over the next few days not only will your understanding will be as clear as it needs to be, but you'll also see why you needed to become so lost. Real appreciation of the intricacies of a situation can be gained only through experiencing it. What you now know is really worth knowing and will, as you’re also about to see, be immensely valuable. In your love life: Don’t cling too tight to a fantasy. If you judge your reality now you should recognise how much you have to be glad of.
#Libra Daily Prediction

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

What's stopping things from going as well as you'd like? You're worried that because a certain arrangement hasn’t worked out in the past, it won’t go right this time either. Yet an intermittent fault in your TV doesn’t mean that you can’t watch it most of the time. It’s because you care so deeply about this particular project that you’ve forgotten the difference between ‘often’ and ‘always’. The Solstice is a clear sign that a silver lining can be found, just where you least expect it this week. In your love life: You won’t master every situation this week, but you will gain an insight that does much to improve a key relationship.
#Scorpio Daily Prediction

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

The world is full of folk who like to give advice. There’s nothing they like better than telling us what we're doing wrong or what we ‘should’ be doing. Often they have no experience of the matter they’re advising on. In fact, the more insistent they are, the less knowledge they have. When we really know something, we tend to keep quiet until we’re asked for advice. An ‘expert’ in your world knows less than they think. Don't give your power away this Solstice week… the best person to trust is yourself. In your love life: An upturn is coming. Stay calm through one more set of brief frustrations, then magical rewards will start coming your way.
#Sagittarius Daily Prediction

Capricon (Dec 22 - Jan 21)

As the parent of a young child, it’s not easy to know when to say no. Is it best to keep firm, non-negotiable boundaries? Or is it better to give children the freedom to explore and experiment and allow them to be more adventurous? When they’re naughty, should they be shouted at or talked to? The truth is that we have ideas about how to behave, yet find ourselves breaking our own behavioural codes. Over this Solstice week, there's much to be gained if you tap into your natural integrity. In your love life: A fact must be faced. If that's seen as a compromise, not a sacrifice, the world will give back to you in delightful ways.

Aquarius (Jan 22 - Feb 19)

There are more questions than answers’ is a well-known lyric to a catchy tune. Yet I’d like to put forward a case for the opposite being true; that would explain why there’s more than one answer to a question! It’s also why we tend to ask ourselves the same questions over and over again – because each time, we come up with a different answer. You’ve been feeling exasperated by a series of frustrating dilemmas which have been impossible to resolve. This Solstice week brings a welcome answer to a puzzle. In your love life: Persistence pays. How sad if you dropped out of a race moments before you could have won. Listen to your heart.
#Aquarius Daily Prediction

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

A factor in your world feels ‘wrong’. Since this is affecting your emotional life, it's having a profound effect on your sense of wellbeing. You’re feeling upset and unnerved, and your ability to focus on the positive aspects of your world are being undermined. This week, the Solstice reveals the way for you to get to grips with an issue that needs to be dealt with. You might not be able to sweep a tricky situation completely out of your life, but you'll find a way of sorting it that makes you feel much better. In your love life: Problems? Less about getting what you want, more about getting less of what you don't want. You may yet succeed!
