Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Patience is going to be important this month, particularly once Mercury goes into retrograde on the 13th. Balancing your worldly involvements with the needs of home, family and loved ones, may take some doing. However, as Saturn begins a direct motion on the 25th, your long-term financial situation can stabilize, as can shared resources or business interests, Taurus.

The eclipses this August can also be very positive for you, encouraging you to communicate at every turn. Your upbeat and radiant personality, will win many more fans, Gemini.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Both Uranus and Mercury go into retrogrades this month, and it's going to be important therefore not to take issues around your worldly interactions or everyday communications for granted. Yet anything linked to property could well turn out to be very positive. But remaining flexible and open-minded is going to be key in all that you do. Energy will also revive from the 23rd.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
On the 21st of this month, there's a stunning Solar Eclipse in your zodiac sign. This Black Moon means that you have received two lightning bolts of energy within one month that can help to rejuvenate ongoing strands, or see you initiate new ones. With Uranus also angling well to this Eclipse, there really is a sense of out with the old and in with the new, and it can feel very exciting.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Your ruler Mercury is in a very sensitive location this month, and from the 13th goes into a retrograde. It's going to be important not to get isolated from people that you are close to. There can be a sense of you just focusing on your everyday needs or one special person, to the exclusion of others. Your energy is set to improve hugely once the Sun enters your sign on the 23rd.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
With Uranus going retrograde from the 3rd, the restlessness you have experienced around relationships since 2010, can become a feature in the next half year. But see this as an opportunity, and an opportunity to network and connect with other bright minded beings. Both eclipses this month can be so powerfully good for you. Seize the opportunity to reach out to others.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
There's little doubt that your role in life can go through some big changes through to the end of this year, particularly as far as your professional and worldly involvements are concerned. Think big and aim high, but this may mean that you will have to embrace new ways of being and working. If you can have the confidence to go for this, despite any little snags, a brighter future beckons.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Your ruler Jupiter forges a magnificent angle to the Lunar eclipse on the 7th. This can bring a greater vibrancy to your friendships and the communications you enjoy with them. There's a sense that your natural desire to experience new frontiers is coming more strongly back into focus. In fact, by the time Saturn goes forwards in your sign on the 25th, it can prove to be irresistible.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Shared finances and property matters have something of a split dimension this month. On one hand this can be an area of great potential, whilst on the other, there is the potential for some misunderstandings. Work hard to avoid this. You may make some surprising decisions around where you live, who with and how, in the last half of this year, and it could even mean moving altogether.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Whilst your modern guide Uranus, and Mercury, both go into retrogrades this month, this still can prove to be a very powerful and special month for your zodiac sign, Aquarius. The Lunar Eclipse in your sign on the 7th links brilliantly to luck bringer Jupiter, and the Solar Eclipse of the 21st to Uranus. All this means that your moves around relationships can be truly life changing.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Some issues may surface this month which to begin with can seem a little disconcerting. Actually, what they're going to do is enlighten you with a much greater understanding of a key issue. With the Solar Eclipse of the 21st, along with Mercury's retrograde, you will be grappling with some nitty-gritty issues, but one relationship can truly hearten you all of this month, Pisces.
