Astrologer Patrick Arundell brings you your horoscopes for the week ahead – and lucky birthday messages for Gemini celebrating their special day.
Aries March 21 – April 20
You can go from feeling passive about a problem to becoming intense and really wanting to do something about it. This week can be a journey of discovery that encourages you to stand up for yourself rather than playing too nice. Being the first to reach out and discuss it might show you that you’re the one in charge, but spirits can easily unravel, so take things very slowly.
Taurus April 21 – May 21
You may be inclined to see the best in people at the start of the week, but your opinion of someone might have changed by the end, Taurus. You might think that this person has your best interests at heart, but the fact that they aren’t might become obvious. Yet, with Venus aligning with Jupiter, you will also enjoy the company of those friends who stay by your side.
Gemini May 22 – June 21
You can promise something out of the kindness of your heart because you want to be a force for good. But make sure you don’t change in the short term, as you could quickly become disillusioned. Taking a realistic approach can get you better and better, while hoping for the best can disappoint you. In addition, you could benefit from a surprise gift or a small windfall.
Cancer June 22 – July 23
As Venus enters your sign, you will be ready to soothe the murky waters, but also to find a way to solve an issue that is hindering your happiness. There are opportunities to have fun and even treat yourself, but be prepared to hold your ground too. Although you often trust your instincts, there might be some uncertainty about what they are telling you.
Leo July 24 – August 23
Caught in dreams of what could be? You might come back to earth with a bump if you pursue an unrealistic idea or plan. Anything that strikes you as amazing at the start of the week could be your downfall at the end of it, unless you research it deeply and solve the pitfalls. Now is not the time to take risks, as the impact can last. Approach new opportunities carefully.
Virgo August 24 – September 23
A quarter moon in your goal area means you’ll be eager to complete a project. If so, this is one of the best times to involve other people so that you can finalize the remaining issues. You may also be lucky, as the beautiful Venus aligns with Jupiter. With a little planning, this could turn into a lucrative business. Still, with Neptune pictured, it’s just as well to be extra vigilant.
Libra September 24 – October 23
As Diplomatic Venus moves through your lens sector, you’ll find that the charm can help oil the wheels of commerce and keep things running smoothly. This week, with Mars facing Pluto, it’s the family you may need to appease as tensions may mount. You can try to discuss this, but those around you will need to be flexible to fully embrace your ambitious plans.
Scorpio October 24 – November 22
A compassionate approach might alleviate a sticky situation that might otherwise become intense and a little overwhelming. As the week picks up, you may get angry unless you step back and handle it sensitively. As Venus moves into a lighter area, a big picture can also help. A stupid misunderstanding could be the cause.
Sagittarius November 23 – December 21
Things might not be as clear as they should be, and that depends on Mercury’s rewind phase as well as its angle to Neptune. There can be some confusion regarding finances, so it’s best to investigate and get to the bottom of any discrepancies, especially if an urgent issue needs to be addressed. Still, an easy going aspect can make you savor some time for me and enjoy life too.
Capricorn December 22 – January 20
Rather than stoking the fires of disagreement, it might be wiser not to feed them and let them run out. You might take something very personally, but then again, you can choose to forget about it and not let it affect you. With Mars heading towards Neptune and Pluto, the choice is yours, and it all depends on how valuable a relationship is to you. You can either fix it or let it go.
Aquarius January 21 – February 19
This week’s quarter moon suggests that you may have to spend more than you planned to get a project started. But if you’re almost there and it’s going well, it’s probably worth it. If you have something important to sign or are ready to commit, it is wise to read the fine print, as a blurry angle involving Mercury and Neptune suggests that all may not be what it is. seems.
Pisces February 20 – March 20
Channel your energy into plans and projects that serve you, rather than getting involved in a dispute with a friend or a group. With Mars tied to Neptune as well as Pluto, you can go either way. But with the graceful Venus pictured, you’ll benefit from reaching out and talking about it, preferably early before things get too hot. Ready to relax? A short trip can revive you.
