Aries 21 March - 20 April
You can easily accomplish much today if you can keep your mind focused on the job. There is a chance of restlessness showing up, though, if what you're doing isn't challenging enough. As a result, you might want to look into any new opportunities. Leisure options look lively too if you feel like chilling and having fun.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
You can make headway with ideas requiring common sense and attention to detail. However, Jupiter's influence could mean you're a tad complacent when it comes to meeting deadlines or targets, meaning you'll need to be disciplined to get results. At home a little de-cluttering could leave you feeling pleasantly liberated.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
An optimistic outlook adds a lively note to family affairs. Indeed, this might be a good time to plan an outing - as everyone looks to be ready for some fun. However, critical thoughts can also dampen your mood, so try to stay positive. On another note, new information could lead to an opportunity you won't want to miss.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
If you've felt uncertain around finances, the presence of Mars in your money zone looks set to spur you on. All you need is an idea and the persistence and enthusiasm to follow it through - and you could go seriously far. Pleasingly an old friend may call or rejoin the fold, which can delight as you happily catch up on news.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
As Venus rewinds in your sign Leo it could skew your take on friendships and your place within them. In addition, it may be time to seek closure for unresolved feelings, especially if they're causing angst. Even so, you have the determination and drive to accomplish those goals that you're deeply enthusiastic about.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Jupiter encourages you to cut yourself some slack and consider a reduced schedule for a few days. So, if you've been planning a getaway for something more adventurous than usual, do head off the beaten track and make new discoveries. However, perhaps it's best not to second guess a brilliant idea. It could prove invaluable.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Any restlessness can be used positively, if channelled into key projects or plans for self-advancement. At the same time your highest hopes can gain a central place in your life, bringing creative ideas and unique solutions. Meanwhile, today's Moon Mars link can see you keen to connect with a newcomer to your circle.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
A spontaneous and easy going approach may be your best bet today, but could be difficult to maintain if you're putting too much pressure on yourself. Try to relax and you'll find you accomplish a lot more in the process. There are options for a fun evening and for joining up with those on your wavelength. Seize the moment!
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
If you're looking for resources to help you achieve your goals or further your career, you'll easily locate them. With just a bit of digging useful tips can show up in abundance - and one or two may be the mine of information you've been hoping for. Later, an unlikely encounter could prove empowering and rather delightful too.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Whether you run a business or just want to spend your money wisely, current planetary influences encourage you to research your options. In addition, thinking out of the box can help you come up with solutions that might resolve a tricky issue. Any desire to expand your horizons can bring really positive rewards, Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
With Saturn pushing ahead in your goals' sector, there's a chance you're more aware of the limitations that seem to deny you success, rather than the possibilities that might invite it. The input of a friend, though a tad controversial, could well point you in the right direction - or give a new perspective that you can work with.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
When making key decisions try running your ideas by a trusted group of friends, as they'll make sure you grasp the reality of the situation. Their advice might help counteract a tendency to gloss over the downside. Those in your social circle can prove supportive in other ways, by being willing to chip-in and lend a hand.
