Happy New Year! After Mars moves into Capricorn, Aries welcomes the Sun as the Equinox arrives and we celebrate the arrival of the astrological New Year. As Mercury and Venus connect, there are plenty of reasons to celebrate the moment when the day and the night are of equal length, although Mercury turning retrograde later this week suggests that there will be ideas that need revisiting. Still, as bountiful Aries infuses us with youthful energy, we should easily be able to access the positive motivation to do what needs to be done.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

You’ve done the hard work. You’ve ploughed and sown the seeds. But you’ve been waiting for some time, and you’re starting to doubt if you will see anything tangible from your efforts. Something to show for your work would be encouraging. As we move towards the Equinox, happy returns are heading your way. What’s more, you deserve everything you’re about to receive and more. Sometimes these things just take a little more time than we’d like. The cosmic postman brings good news this week. In your love life: A coming wave of change in your emotional life brings the power you have craved. Expect change for the better.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

Here’s a question before we start your forecast: how do you know that today is today? Are you sure you’re not just reliving yesterday? Or have you skipped a day and arrived in tomorrow’s tomorrow? How would you know if there were holes in your recollections? There has to be an explanation for the apparently inexplicable scenario that you suddenly find yourself facing. As Mercury prepares to turn retrograde this week, there’ll be some odd happenings in your world. But you might be surprised by their positivity. In your love life: Sometimes, disadvantages conceal blessings. You wish you could alter one key factor. It may be better not to.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

Mercury prepares to turn retrograde this week. You won’t lose your quick thinking, perceptiveness or your wit, it’s just that they won’t be running as smoothly as usual. If you find yourself feeling hampered by developments, remember that everything’s happening for a reason. As you investigate what lies at the root of some of life’s challenges, a positive, lasting change can occur. Nor do you need to worry about settling in and setting up shop in this challenging marketplace. Put up with it while you must, but be ready to move on again soon. In your love life: What has ‘gone missing’ from your emotional life lately? Begin by looking in the last place you encountered it.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 22)

The New Moon calls you in a new direction, and the Sun invites you to set your sights high and your ambitions higher. Your situation reminds me of the late, great Michael Jackson. In order to get to where you want to go you might have to do the equivalent of some moonwalking! You can find a stylish way to manoeuvre yourself around any obstacles this week. Like the King of Pop, you can relish any backward movements you need to make. With your flexibility and creativity, you can impress people with your skill. In your love life: Something exceptional is coming. Stop trying to be ordinary and psychologically prepare for a time of innovation.

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 23)

I wonder if the band Journey were interested in astrology. Their name represents the Ninth House in astrology which is home to faith and long-distance travels! It’s also where the Sun moves into your chart this week, suggesting that you’re about to embark upon a mental, physical or spiritual quest. Although the most exciting journeys involve ventures into the unknown, sometimes we have to travel over familiar ground too. So if you end up retracing some steps this week, don’t lose heart, and don’t stop believing. In your love life: Love and money. You can encourage those elusive elements into your life by manifesting confidence.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

You might be surprised to hear that as Mercury prepares to turn retrograde, resolution is on the horizon. For a while, you’ve been puzzling over a complex situation, trying to unravel the myriad of strands that have somehow formed an inextricable knot. It’s time to stop tiptoeing around a piece of faulty logic. You’re being offered the insight you need to get to the hidden heart of the matter. If you can find the strength to speak powerfully and truthfully both to yourself and those around you, you’ll have nothing to fear. In your love life: Headaches and stress. You can make them go away if you refuse to play someone else’s game.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

Before you take someone’s advice, ask yourself whether they’re really qualified to give it. It’s easy to confuse arrogance with authority. And people who venture advice are often the last people we should listen to. A pinch of information does not make an expert! Some people like to make dangerous enterprises sound reasonable and, perhaps more problematically, tell you that you’re unqualified for tasks that you’re well qualified to undertake. This week, the most important advice you can follow is your own. In your love life: Doubt is toxic and can do terrible damage. Rid yourself of yours. Go beyond fear, blame and judgement.
#Libra Daily Prediction

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

It’s so infuriating when someone tells you to ‘calm down’ when you’re already calm. It feels dismissive — as if your objection isn’t justified. This is especially true for comments that are hidden under the guise of ‘just a joke’, but are veiled criticisms. Someone who’s less than happy about the status quo may be using devious ways to affect your attitude. You just need to be clear and choose your words with care. Though confrontation isn’t easy, once aired, you’ll be able to lay your concerns to rest, and move on. In your love life: Your faery helpers are invisible but they not imaginary. Trust yourself. You’re winning earthly admirers too.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Do you feel like you’re walking taller yet? Are you skipping along the road as if a heavy burden has been lifted from your shoulders? As Mars waves goodbye it’s likely that you will feel a sense of relief this weekend. Perhaps you can already sense the release? These feelings will only increase. Troubles? Clearing fast. Rain? Blown away. Sunny times? Straight ahead. Your new astrological weather forecast is for a more settled period of happiness, relaxation and enjoyment. About time too! Enjoy! In your love life: Feeling guilty? It’s all in your mind. You don’t have anything to apologise for!

Capricon (Dec 22 - Jan 21)

Slow and steady wins the race’ might be sage advice, but it’s not universally true. Sometimes we have to throw ourselves headfirst into things with a jump-first-ask-questions-later kind of approach. So, what’s right for you this week? Mars entering your sign doesn’t leave you with as much of an option as you might like. It feels as if you must seize any opportunities or they will pass you by. But while there might be no room for prevarication, there’s time to listen to your instincts. Don’t be nervous — be excited! In your love life: Don’t worry about unsolvable problems. Focus on the here and now. Learn to love life afresh.

Aquarius (Jan 22 - Feb 19)

Probably since the dawn of time people have sought out the ‘rock ‘n’ roll’ lifestyle… party all night, sleep all day, never take a moment to smell the roses. Many a celebrity memoir has been penned about the rise and fall that comes with that kind of life. The desire to escape reality is something we all recognise. So, what are you tempted to run away from now? As Mars moves signs, you’re well equipped to deal with whatever is bothering you, but first you might need to do some soul-searching. Then, you’ll discover what it is. In your love life: ‘But what if?’ A question like that is a kind of terrifying virus... usually. But now you have the answer.
#Aquarius Daily Prediction

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

On the high street and online, shops are being constantly replenished with the latest products to tempt us to splash out. Given how much of it is useless, it’s remarkable how much of it we buy! The strong human desire to acquire more possessions seems to override our thriftier instincts. Though you might not be in a position to be extravagant, there’s no need to wear a hair shirt either. If there is something that will give you genuine, lasting pleasure, then treat yourself. You deserve to be indulged this week. In your love life: It is not always good to speak too frankly. Deal with what’s real and try not to embroider facts with feelings.
