Aries 21 March - 20 April
Ready for a refreshing change? It might happen, with a surprise offer that could enhance your income and leave you happier. If it appeals take it Aries, as you may do well out of it. There can be distractions too, but these could pave the way for new developments. Plus, the weekend Leo New Moon enhances creativity, and encourages a romantic bond to flourish.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
With some frustration occurring this week, you may be tempted to speed up the pace by taking a short-cut. Doing so could be a lifesaver, but it might affect your reputation if your work isn't up to scratch, so follow your intuition. Ready to give your place a makeover? Starting this weekend can be an advantage, as your love of design and craft is at a peak. You just need to channel it.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
If someone seems resistant to your ideas, don't try to persuade them otherwise, Gemini. You'd be better to trust your knowledge and experience, and let the results speak for themselves. By the end of the week, they may be convinced. With a potent New Moon in Leo over the weekend, this is one of the better times to launch a project that could prove to be a real money-spinner for you.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Short on funds? It may seem this way early on, but opportunities could arise to tweak your income and even enhance it permanently. You just need to be open to offers and ideas, wherever they come from. Some suggestions might be a bit of a challenge, but can still be worthy of your attention. Ready to get finances in order, Cancer? Just making a start could leave you more assured.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Feel let down by someone's attitude? The start of the week could be a disappointment, but this may be replaced by better options that can leave you equally enthusiastic. By the time the weekend comes around, you won't even remember why you felt let down. In addition, the New Moon in your sign is the best of the year, and a great time to kickstart new initiatives and plans.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
If you're feeling the pace and working harder than ever, the focus on a quieter zone encourages you to act to avoid burnout. If you can get a break over this week, then go for it Virgo, even if only for a few hours. The chance to get away could give you a fresh perspective on life, and help you make some key decisions. Practicing meditation or yoga may be helpful for the long-term.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Perhaps you don't feel in the mood for socialising, especially early on. Yet connecting with others and getting out, could make this week extra special. You'll link up with some fascinating people, who may have opportunities to offer and ideas to share. And romance might call out to you too, Libra. Whether single or spoken for, the Leo New Moon highlights sizzling passions.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Certain reservations may be holding you back from reaching your full potential. These could surface early on, but they will not linger. With the days ahead bringing revolutionary ideas and fresh perspectives into the mix, what seemed like a challenge can soon be a breeze. Plus, the Leo New Moon brings a chance to stand out from the crowd and show your true worth, Scorpio.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
You may be putting a damper on your plans for no reason. This could make you reluctant to take a trip or grasp a golden opportunity. While being cautious can be a positive, you might be overly so, Archer. With so many great possibilities showing up this week, don't be afraid to see where they take you. A positive Leo New Moon encourages you to trust your heart and follow its lead.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Embrace new perspectives, and you could be offered more opportunities than you've had in some time. If you've held back due to a fear of trying anything new, the days ahead encourage you to move out of your comfort zone and be more daring. A truly positive transformation can result from this. Need to let go of something so you can move ahead? Doing so may be a release.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Is someone persistently trying to get in touch with you? If so, it can be worth reciprocating. You might not see any obvious reason why you should connect, but there could be more to them than meets the eye. And you never know when you may need their help in the future. And with a heart-warming New Moon, an encounter could be the start of a new friendship or romance, Aquarius.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
With plenty of activity in your relationship sector and lovely Venus continuing here, there's every chance to resolve any issues or difficulties. A meeting could prove exciting, and turn out to be more worthwhile than you thought. In addition, a powerful lunar phase in your work sector, can be a call to initiate new routines for better health, greater productivity and a happier life.
