Today sees the New Moon in Taurus. Dependent on whether we look at this influence more spiritually or materialistically, it is a time to focus on values and resources. How are yours looking at the present time? Are you feeling things are as you want?
If not, the next month provides an opportunity to work hard at things. But there can be a bright spark of energy today, as Mercury and Jupiter continue to combine well. This suggests that a lucky break can unfold, but make your move swiftly because tomorrow, Mercury goes into a retrograde.
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Clear up all outstanding communication. With Mercury set to go into rewind tomorrow, anything which is left or overlooked could cause issues over the next three weeks, perhaps even longer, because it won't be until the 27th of June that both the planet of thought and talk returns to the exact same position as now.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
This would be an excellent time to micro-manage anything of a financial nature. If you tend to be a bit laid back when it comes to checking bank, mobile phone or utility statements be determined to grapple with these more meaningfully now. It may not be hugely obvious right away, but an error could be lurking.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
You might find yourself having second thoughts about one plan that you have been working on of late. However, if this does happen it might not be such a bad thing. Although it may appear as if the fates are conspiring against you, in reality what you want and your tactics, can both change over the next six weeks.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
This is going to be a big week for your relationships, and one which is likely to give you plenty of food for thought Cancer. It's possible that you will learn more about one involvement or work something out by thinking issues through on your own. A certain amount of anxiety could bubble to the surface through this.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Jupiter in Leo continues its sparkling link with Mercury, suggesting your leaderships skills can come to the fore this week, and especially around friendships or associates. However, even if you are crystal clear about how you want to approach things, you can't assume that others will automatically fall in with what you want.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Someone influential really can have your best interests at heart, but they may not be too obvious or public about the way they go about this, so it is entirely possible that they will do things behind the scenes to help you. Then again, if there's a younger person you wish to mentor, this can feature strongly now.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
This would be a fine time to nail down the arrangements on any kind of higher education or travel plan. Certainly don't delay finalising things because with Mercury, which partly governs and influences these areas, about to slam on its astral brakes, the sooner things are sorted out the better Libra. So do be proactive.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
If you're someone who enjoys buying or selling, especially on line, or you have a bigger commercial enterprise, the stars really sparkle for you specifically today. You can be clear minded and yet throw the kind of bold moves to do well. Around personal finances, push to finalise any transactions as soon as you can.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Your guide planet Jupiter is going to be forging a fantastic link all week to Mercury. The combination suggests some kind of joint enterprise, a partnership or leisure activity can be really important. A meeting of minds with someone charismatic could spur you and them on. But some other communications can snare.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
You can come up with some good ideas about health and fitness and ironically about work prospects. If you find yourself revisiting things you have done in the past, it wouldn't be a surprise. But there may be something that is no longer active in your situation that can in fact work really well for you from now, Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
As the Moon glides into Gemini later today, so you can really find your spark both creatively and also potentially socially. And this lovely vibe can go on all this week. Ironically, with Mercury beginning to track backwards tomorrow, some plans may come or go or even be changed, but remain resolutely upbeat, Water Carrier.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Someone in your clan or extended family can prove to be a great support and immensely helpful. This could be on a home improvement scheme or be their wisdom over a situation that you are grappling with. You might also buy a domestic appliance that will help your daily chores to be less of a grind within your abode.
