The Moon passes across Saturn in Sagittarius today, and then goes on to square with Neptune later in the day. If this rings a bell, it is because it is set to be a monthly feature for some time to come. However, despite the limitation to our spirits and emotional outlook that this can create or the degree of confusion or uncertainty, the wonderful news is that Jupiter, the planet of expansion and fortune, ends a long four month backward journey in Leo.
If things have seemed stuck around all sorts of legal issues, training, knowledge or higher education, progress can now be made. Yet you may encounter someone directly today itself, who is keener to tell you how it should be rather than listen to your take. Patience continues to be a virtue this week.
Aries 21 March - 20 April
It's Mercury's turn to align itself directly alongside Uranus. This can give you a buzz of extra creative energy and no little mental vibrancy too. However, your mood may be quite changeable. If you are hemmed in and doing anything dull, boring and repetitive, you might find yourself becoming distracted and restless more easily.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
An old memory can surface or someone can tell you something that you are rather startled by. You may have to accept that life has a tendency to confront you with issues or angles that you may not be expecting. This might be anxiety inducing, especially if it feels things are coming at you too quickly to easily process.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Your ruling planet Mercury is in the spotlight today, but it can see you razor sharp in your thinking and able to cut through life's froth. You may even be more direct with a friend. If there is someone you have been struggling to get along with, you might even decide to liberate yourself from the association, once and for all.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
You are often seen as a safe pair of hands, but you can dazzle someone in a prominent role by showing the full range of your talents. Bring in any new skills or ideas you have as you will find that they are particularly receptive. If a new opening shows up, be open to it. What you know may be safe, but this could fulfil you more.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Someone radically different to you can prove rather challenging. However, even if they do suggest something which goes against the grain or is completely novel, don't dismiss it out of hand. Sometimes we all need a jolt, and one now might be just what you need. Then again, it could be you playing devil's advocate.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Have there been elements of your life which seem in a state of flux? It wouldn't be a surprise, but your ruler Mercury is going to give you some help today, as it forges a fine link, along with Uranus with the planet of plenty Jupiter. Even something which at first doesn't look promising, can in fact be very much so.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Jupiter moves into forwards motion from today. This doesn't mean that during its rewind in the last four months you have been intrinsically unlucky around friendships or longer term goals, but perhaps you have been a little more introspective, working out exactly what you need. And one friend could delight today.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
You may not have had everything your own way professionally of late. In fact, it might have seemed that you've been having to continually re-evaluate exactly what you do want and what opportunities are right for you. In some instances an old income stream could have dried up, but stay alert and flexible, things can lift now.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Your ruler has been retracing his steps since early December last year, and today goes direct again. Your normal appetite for expansion may not have been completely blighted by this, but there might have been a sense of one step forwards two back at times, but today offers some wonderful opportunities for you to sparkle.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Your thinking around what you own, property, material assets or close associations has probably been more serious this year so far. But then these are areas that you can be quite a whizz at, and therefore this phase of deeper reflection has been a chance to get more in touch with what you really need and what's important.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
You could enjoy a real stroke of fortune today, and connect and click with someone who has a very similar outlook and mindset to you. This could go all the way to a dazzling romantic connection with someone. This person may have something rather unusual or striking about their features or their views and outlook.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Your health and vitality are given a welcome boost as the planet of optimism Jupiter goes into forwards motion. With it also aspecting Uranus and Mercury, your fortunes around work and money can also be revived. This will require you to remain aware of what opportunities would truly suit you and to be flexible, Pisces.
