Start of the week sees the Sun combine with Uranus and joins in the square it has been forging with Pluto. This is a very powerful influence and any situation where you feel someone has been “keeping you down” or treating you unfairly, you may find that your emotions are very close to the surface, perhaps even volcanically so. However, this can also see us push against the inner blockages we have, the ones which stop us from really fulfilling our potential, so it can be a liberating influence too...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
The Sun starts this week side by side or conjunct with Uranus but squaring Pluto. Ring a bell? Well, it's because Venus and Mars have been through this in the recent past, and Mercury will do later this week. This can be choppy, no doubt, and stir up all sorts of issues, but especially around your need to be individual.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
You could find yourself with a surfeit of nervous energy but find it hard to settle and apply it to anything tangible or long lasting. If you would like to do more in any part of your life, hidden opposition which has been rumbling in the background could have a habit of coming to the fore this week. Keep your guard up.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Your thinking around certain plans may be subject to sudden about-turns. This can be particularly so if you feel that others are trying to coerce you, or hold you to anything which is not your responsibility or business. If you are someone with a wide circle of friends this week could be blighted by politics, jealousy or power plays.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Who holds the power in your relationship Cancer, and moreover should they? If you tend to be very much in charge be it at home or work, it's going to be important to stay conscious of this for there can be powerful shifts in the dynamic. If you feel someone has been too controlling of you, you may decide to break away.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Obligations that have lost their sparkle can seem even more onerous this week. If this seems to chime with something I have said before, it is because this has been a repeating influence over the last few years, but it reaches a new level of intensity now. On the upside, you might decide to do something really daring.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Your financial and romantic situation can be charged, to say the least. A massive crush is possible, or you could find yourself making impulsive spending decisions. This is not the best of times to act too hastily. However compelled you feel to do anything, try to resist it. Later this week you will find yourself less in the grip.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Someone can wing their way into your orbit in the most unexpected and sudden way today. And, they may be uplifting, witty or challenging, but not necessarily in any kind of bad way. On the other hand, you might find that your own relationship thinking and decision making goes through a series of changes of mind.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
An opportunity to learn new skills or to apply for a different type of role can come up this week. Events could be fast moving however, so you may be pressed by circumstances to make a quick decision. What you need to avoid doing just now, is overloading yourself with different options. Make a plan and stick to it.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
If you need to promote yourself, your ideas or abilities you can do so with real conviction today. Even any far sighted schemes could take a big step forwards, with you riding a wave of passion and enthusiasm. If you have a natural dash of the risk taker in you, it can certainly come to the fore, yet don't go overboard.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
People can pop in unexpectedly today. If you are someone who loves having visitors around this could be just what you'd relish. Then again, you may find yourself tempted to make changes to your home. More contemporary approaches might suit you, especially if you are someone who has been more traditional in the past.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Your mind could be super sharp today, okay I know this is not unusual, but truly you can really flex your grey matter to great effect. Whether it is in enjoying some witty repartee, regaling friends with your latest adventures or blazing a path with your zippy ideas, don't hold back from showing what an original one off you are.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
You could be ingenious about marshalling your resources, but equally this may see you change your mind on a long standing approach and try something completely different. The challenge around this week is that your motivations can be skewed by material gain to such a degree that you go against your better self.
