From now until the end of the week, the Sun chimes harmoniously with the go-getter that is Jupiter. This gives us an opportunity to be more self confident in our approach, and more expansive.
However, you might be pondering, sorry Patrick, but didn't Jupiter recently go into a retrograde and won't that affect things? Well, the answer on both counts is yes. We can be hopeful during this transit, but we also need to be realistic. Because the Sun is in the grounded energies of Capricorn, this is possible.

Aries 21 March - 20 April
Feel moved to take up an opportunity that you'd relish? If so, keep your eyes peeled for adverts or offers in order to capitalize on this. Information might show up in more than one place - perhaps by coincidence or be mentioned by a friend of yours - in which case the cosmos may be encouraging you to explore further.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
You can be motivated to get involved in a hobby that you were once good at. This time around you may find there's so much more to it. And as you get engrossed in its various aspects it may seem even more fascinating and intriguing than ever before. So if you are mulling your options, don't discount past experiences, Taurus.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
As Mars moves to sync with Neptune you'll need to keep your wits about you if you're to negotiate the best terms. Special care needs to be taken for the next few weeks, as to ward off any chance of a misunderstanding. Therefore, you'd be best to tackle potential pitfalls early on, so you're adequately prepared for every eventuality.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Look to take the initiative around relationships, especially if it seems that you and another person could benefit from pooling your skills and experience. With Venus and Uranus currently angled towards each other, this is a time when you can be more into unique or novel ways to increase your income or express your more artisan spirit.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
You generally love what you love, and this can make you a very solid citizen, Leo. However, it is also important to be open to new possibilities and this week can, if you are open to it, lead to an unplanned and positive encounter or engrossing conversation that could provide you with angles that may soon see you bursting with new enthusiasm.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
As both the Sun and Mercury angle towards Jupiter you may wonder how to reassure a certain person, especially if delicate feelings are involved. This influence has a very practical quality, so rather than just talking it through it might be as well to let your deeds speak for themselves. A simple but thoughtful gesture on your part will go far.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Your ruler Venus continues to sparkle brightly with the planet of surprises, Uranus. That said, the latter is still causing some issues around the basic foundations of your life. If you are able to enjoy bright and upbeat exchanges - do, but more serious relationships can see you needing to feel that those close to you, nurture you too.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
As Venus ties with Uranus it can highlight a relationship that you might be keen to invest in. This encounter may be with someone who shares your values - and who you'd like to know better. It's possible too that you can convert a creative talent into something that gives you a really positive sense of self, and maybe some extra income.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Putting some cash aside for contingencies is a smart thing to do. However, current influences can also encourage you to take a closer look at your finances, as you may spot a few ways to economise. Mars in its developing angle to Neptune, can, over the next few weeks, see you use old skills and talents, but in a new imaginative way.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
If you get an intuitive hunch to reach out to someone today then you'd probably be best not to ignore this. Something from your subconscious can trigger an impulse to give someone a call or fire off a quick email. Sometimes acting on such fleeting feelings can bring results that are truly heart-warming and worthwhile. So why wait?
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
If you don't feel so motivated to get to grips with a goal or ambition, it may be because your ambitions are very subtly being dampened. You are not always as motivated by money as some, and perhaps what you are looking for in your life interactions is a greater sense of meaning. Fortunately, social influences remain very lively today, Aquarius.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Might a reunion be in the air? As the Sun and Mercury align with Jupiter there's a suggestion that you may feel moved to reconnect with friends from yesteryear. One of them may continue to have a very big place in your heart, and you could find yourself stirred by the prospect of seeing them again.
