Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Friendships are often hugely important to you, and this week will be no different.

Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Venus in your sign forges a stunning angle to Mars. A relationship you were unsure of can be clarified by this, or if you're single you can find yourself keen to socialize and interact with others. There can be lots of playful and even flirty moments from this. Professionally, a meeting can go exceptionally well, and the pace of life is set to step up quite considerably now, Pisces.
