The innovative and revolutionary planet Uranus now turns direct after many months in its retrograde phase.
As this can be quite a subtle influence it may not be noticeable right away, but we may find we are ready and willing to make changes that have long been on our minds. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Friday 30th December 2016 please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
While yesterday's New Moon may have coincided with an impulse to master a situation or a challenge, today's more specific vibe suggests that this can be an opportunity to dig deep into your reserves of faith and summon up greater belief in your abilities. If you have had doubts about dealing with a certain situation, rediscovering your inner strength will pull you through.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
This can be an opportunity to deal with a relationship issue that may need attention. With the Moon linking to the transforming energies of Pluto, you may sense that something you say could alter the tenor of a bond one way or another. It's possible that speaking out can be a relief to the other person too, as they may have been unwilling or unable to do so themselves.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
The desire to push forward with a raft of tasks and responsibilities may be there, but at the same time you could find it somewhat difficult to get going. The motivation may still be lacking even if some of those things on your to-do list are quite urgent, which can be down to the soporific effects of Neptune. Do your best, for your horoscope suggests that within a week your vitality can begin to sparkle again.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Those things that are highly desirable usually come at a price, which is why the current blend of influences can pose an interesting dilemma. You might find yourself yearning for an experience or even a relationship that can increase your happiness. But would it? New developments often come with responsibilities and will need maintenance. Are you prepared for this?
Leo 24 July - 23 August
There can be areas where certain situations may seem to be gaining a momentum of their own and could appear out of your hands. Could this be an illusion though, Leo? You might find that if you look into the matter it is possible to take control and to exert your influence over it. If this relates to a financial issue, then it might be wise to step in and do what you can for a positive outcome.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Your connection with one person can develop a warmer glow over coming days, especially as we move into the New Year. And while this lasts, you may find you feel less motivated to focus on other things. Whether solo or entangled this might seem so special that it has an almost spiritual quality about it. And though this could fade somewhat, the memory can certainly linger.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
It can be easier to fret about a certain matter than to have faith that it will all turn out fine in the end. With the Sun linking to the ethereal energies of Neptune, the path of least resistance might see you becoming anxious, but the cosmic setup does reveal a potential solution. By pausing and looking to the facts it's possible that you can identify a way forward that works for you.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Although the New Moon occurred yesterday, its influence lasts for a month and there is still an opportunity to get a key project up and running. Should this have a creative edge, then this may be the perfect time to launch it. With other aspects indicating that your imagination and artistic flair are bubbling, this can be a very rewarding time to invest in your personal expression, Scorpio.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
As the restless Uranus gets into its forward stride after months of being retrograde, you may notice a gradual shift in your attitude towards self-expression and your need for space. This can be helped partly by a tie to the more sobering energies of Saturn in your sign, and could lead to you taking up an activity that allows you to unwind while learning a sport or a lively new pastime.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
If you've felt a sense of dissatisfaction with the more traditional ideals of earning a living and working towards a better lifestyle, then it may be because of an ongoing focus on a more thoughtful sector of your chart. This influence can encourage you to contribute in other ways, and could involve time for charitable events or helping out with other social issues Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
If something isn't going to plan, you might wonder about the best tack. And yet the cosmic scene suggests that this can be an opportunity to draw from a well of spiritual wisdom that could provide you with understanding and some comfort too. A time of quiet reflection can allow your intuition to play a part and might reveal facets of a situation that can make quite a difference.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
While you may feel like reaching out to those who need a listening ear or some comfort, it is not possible to help everyone. Even so, a very compassionate focus might see you try. Over coming days give some thought to your own needs too and to doing something nice for yourself. A little pampering or self-care can give back to you what you have so freely shared.
