Start the week sees Venus moving into an opposition with Saturn which is set to last until Friday. Of course, Venus only newly arrived in Gemini last Sunday, so this is an early challenge. Usually she is at her flightiest in this sign, and able to dazzle, charm and flirt with the best of them. However, with the rather cautious retrograde energies of Saturn directly opposite, the shine may not sparkle so obviously. So what does this mean?
Well, the very weakest of romantic relationships may hit the buffers and the most extreme cases come to a complete end. Then again if you have recently got to know someone new, this is a good time to take stock, and perhaps be more realistic about what you can offer one another. Venus also influences finances. DO NOT be surprised if the Global Markets take a knock, due to instability in Greece, and runs on Sterling due to election uncertainty.
Aries 21 March - 20 April
With the bubbly vibes of Venus having moved into the most vibrant sector for you, your communicational skills can blossom in the next month. However, charm alone is unlikely to unlock the doors of success as subtly will be key too. Fortunately, it can be someone else that provides a telling helping hand today.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Whatever you love, the chances are there can be more plentifulness around it in the next 28 days as your ruler finds its way in your sector of values. And with the Sun and Mercury so closely aligned, today a realisation can help you to see that something you already have is more valuable than you'd first thought.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Expect to be in demand in the weeks to come, when your popularity can really soar. And today's link between your ruler Mercury and the Sun can also encourage social interaction. You may also decide this is a fine time to give your wardrobe a boost, and recycle some older items and invest in some glam, new wear.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Your natural leadership skills can blossom, but if you are grappling with some really big decisions it's going to be important not to rush them. Also if something comes up today which frustrates you, don't jump to conclusions. However, if you give yourself the time and space to reflect, you can make some key decisions.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
If you can blend an openness with confidence and subtlety, others can be very responsive to you today. However, if you are trying to get others to comply to what you want, even if subconsciously, and in the process staying rooted to what you know, the day may flow much less positively. Be prepared to compromise.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Developing warmer relationships with the people you work with can become something of a talent in the weeks to come. This is not going to be a panacea when it comes to gaining a promotion, or being an influencer yourself, but it certainly can help. Today can also see you shrewdly marshalling finances.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
If someone offers you the chance to do something completely different today, how do you feel you will react? You might find yourself much more availing to different approaches, and generally your ability to liaise well, and find the middle ground is superbly accentuated. Your natural diplomacy can serve you well.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Mars and Neptune combine in a sextile. This can be good, and make us less ego driven. And with Mars moving through your relating sector, and Neptune twinkling in your sector of romance, someone really can strike the right chord with you. Just fend off any temptation to want perfection. Accept that this is a mirage, Scorpio.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Sometimes you can be outspoken, but as Venus starts to radiate her magic in your opposite zodiac sign of Gemini, you are being asked to let go, and not hold onto conflicts or frustrations. Even a slight change by you can trigger a different attitude from others. Make harmony your goal for the week ahead, Archer.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
You can make your points in a more nuanced way. If there is something tricky to achieve, doing so in a less direct manner can work out very well. If you have a talent linked to the arts or creativity this too can flourish, and especially if you can work on this in the sanctuary of home. Peace and flair complement one another.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Your mind can be very lively, and with Venus now accentuating the most affectionate part of your nature an interesting phase is in store when it comes to your love life. However, home and hearth can be affected by money issues. Is someone being as level with you as they could be? They may mask their true motivations.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Your motivations, and particularly around cash, could be a bit blurry. You may have to let go of something you really want, or accept that someone may need something from you which can defer your hopes and desires. On the up side, any desire to make improvements at home or in your outside space can shape up.
