Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Your home is where you often feel most creative, dynamic and romantic, with the current focus bringing a chance to consider your plans and goals for the future - including your personal and family's needs. Meanwhile, relationships look set to improve as Saturn turns direct - and at the least you will be clearer of where you stand.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Today's alignment can be excellent for taking advantage of fresh opportunities, so you may be delighted with news or information that offers the chance of an unexpected opening. However, a Mercury Uranus link suggests you'll need to be quick off the mark. Later, a shrewd financial move could leave you better off.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
If a money-making idea appeals then go for it, especially if it involves any modern technology or has a cutting edge quality. On another note, creative activities and romantic relationships look set to improve, as obstacles to success gradually melt away. Signs of improvement should soon show up, and boost your spirits too.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
The developing Jupiter Saturn link can coincide with frustration, especially on the home front. Even so, today's influences might also bring about a turning point. Perhaps a decision is made that changes things for the better giving you more options for the future. A delightful visitor later today could prove entertaining.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Tried and trusted could seem the safer and more reasonable option - yet, if a brilliant idea calls out to you how will you respond? The Sun and Mercury in your spiritual zone may highlight imaginative solutions to current issues. However, in order to take advantage of these, you may need to move beyond your comfort zone.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
You're engaging and charming enough as it is, but today you could be even more so. Venus, your personal planet, edges back into your social sector. And though charismatic you could be somewhat enigmatic too. And the Moon's link to Neptune may demand discipline - if you're to overcome the temptation to indulge.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
The Jupiter Saturn alignment could reveal a chink of light that's most welcome today. If you've been grappling with a tricky situation things might soon begin to look better. Your intuition may well help you around this, if you're prepared to respond to it. By following a hunch you can get results faster than expected.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
What seemed like a great opportunity could seem less so if Venus's retrograde phase coincides with a broken promise or a plan gone wrong. However, whatever unfolds be philosophical, as there's a strong likelihood of disruptions anyway. For now try researching your options and stay positive. Things will soon evolve.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
If a friend seems doubting, instead focus on getting the results you're after. An edgy influence can see you keen to shake off negative advice and to think along more upbeat lines. Although you're not one to waste money on projects that have little chance of success, you might just be tempted on this occasion.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Social influences seem to be stepping up the pace around you, with invites and opportunities to enjoy a party or get-together. Even so, your mind may be on other things, namely responsibilities that you can't seem to forget about. Don't let this stop you from having fun, as someone may have some excellent advice for you.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
A busy day may be interrupted by an unexpected event, as a Mercury link hints at news or the arrival of a friend. However, the chance to have a chat might be just what's needed to help you relax and begin to settle. Anyway, lighter vibes are ramped up as an impromptu invite brings expectations of a delightful evening.
