Weekly Horoscopes 3rd October 2016
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Your relationship sector is being boosted by the New Moon of late last week, Aires. But what you can't do this week though, is to try to force the pace too much. It is going to be important to use a little bit of stealth and diplomacy allied to your drive in terms of your professional hopes, and apply a great deal of patience and listening skills, at a more inter-personal level.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
The key to this week is going to be the ability to prioritise. If you try to keep everybody happy, as well as embracing your own interests, you may find yourself drawn into making commitments which then prove a drag to fulfil or stop you from flying free towards the things that are really exciting you. The trick therefore, is going to be in under promising and in over delivering.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Your ruling planet is going to move into the most outgoing of zones later this week joining with the Sun and also the exuberant energies of Jupiter. Whatever your interests, talents and skills, this is going to be a wonderful time to showcase them. Yet you may also find yourself wanting to receive some kind of payback, but you may just have to give freely of yourself at this stage.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
The New Moon continues to pour its energy into your sector of emotions. With the arrival of Jupiter in this area too, there is a lot to think about and especially as far as your closest interpersonal ties are concerned. With both Mars in conflict with Jupiter and the Sun with Pluto, not everything will be milk and honey, but the value of certain people can become clearer.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
This can be a week when the pace of events seems to ratchet up several gears. Your desire to keep on top of everything can be laudable, but it could see you hopping between different demands without truly focusing on any of them quite as you would wish. All of this can create a degree of stress. Look to find some ways to still your mind and create tranquillity.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
You often have a great deal of self-discipline, not least because you have an innate ability to see what's really essential, and to discard what's not. However, this can be a week when you find yourself tempted by just about everything, but with Venus forging a gorgeous link with Pluto, it's possible that one conversation and one person can seem more captivating than ever.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Your situation is given even greater momentum this week, when the planet of communication arrives in your sign for a three week stay. Ideas that have been on the back-burner can come to the fore, and see you taking firmer control on what you want to do. Surprisingly, some people could seem somewhat resistant, but be persistent and a breakthrough is very possible, Libra.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
With deep Venus in your sign angling to your co-ruler Pluto, a conversation could turn out to be somewhat fated. But equally, you need to be selective about what you're tuning into from other people. There could be a tendency for you to pick up on any undercurrents and magnify them in your thinking more than they actually deserve. Past hard work can also now be rewarded.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
The Sun forges a fine angle to Saturn in your sign for most of the week. And the parts of your existence which you have really bedded down and refined, can give you a great deal of personal satisfaction. However, if you are planning to buy a friend a gift or do some form of generous gesture, try to rein in your exuberance somewhat, for it might not be fully appreciated.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Both action planet Mars, and Pluto the planet of change, are hugely influential in your situation now. The links to other planets suggest that if you have a well thought out strategy, there is an excellent chance for you to make progress in the wider world. But you will have to have an acute understanding of others' expectations. In love, a friend can become so much more.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
The arrival of Mercury in your sector of expansion, joining with the Sun, Jupiter and the backdrop of the recent New Moon, can fire up your appetite to embrace new beginnings and exciting adventures. One friend could be key to this, but unfortunately you may also need to stay abreast of any politics rumbling in the background. Some tricky issues could yet surface.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
You may find yourself receiving plaudits from someone in a position of seniority. This could even go all the way to a promotion or someone in financial services funding a business idea. If you're travelling, and especially with a group of people, the experience could prove particularly enriching and deepen your bond with a person with a more thoughtful outlook on life.
