The cosmos urges you to forgive a past grievance. Up until now, you’ve been indulging in a slice of resentment pie, which is serving no real purpose. By mid-week, the Sun’s alignment with healing asteroid Chiron comes to your rescue by illuminating a reason to let go. You don’t need to forget. Instead, turn your back on anger for your own benefit.

Creative Bulls showcase their talent in a big way. If you are a painter, dancer, singer or writer, it’s your time to shine. Although Uranus does add an unpredictable spin. Your dreams could veer off-course, going down a completely different path than expected. But if success is the destination, does it really matter how you get there?

GEMINI horoscope

Settle in. Twins are usually bubbling over with exciting social events and interactions. However, this week sees you embracing homebody status for a change. It’s not that you’re feeling blue, but instead that you are in a more content mindset. Enjoy your sanctuary and consider throwing an intimate gathering if you get too bored.

Money is on your mind when clever Mercury enters your cash zone. You want to know how to improve your lifestyle without increasing your workload, right? After all, there are only so many hours in the day, and you are already overstretched. The trick is to work smarter and not harder. Be open to a helpful piece of information or advice.

VIRGO horoscope

Friday’s black moon is in your sign, Virgo! Being the rare second new moon of the month, you are given the gift of a new beginning. How you use this fresh start is up to you. Will you dredge up an old flame or a missed job opportunity to try again? Or will you fertilise a seed that’s been planted and patiently wait for your new and improved beginning elsewhere?

LIBRA horoscope

Mercury subdues your vibe on Thursday when the communication planet enters your retreat zone. You may feel the need to spend time in solitude, which is perfectly okay, even if it serves no purpose other than to clear your head and recharge your batteries. Take all the time you need without guilt. Even Queens need a break every once in a while.

SCORPIO horoscope

The black moon sees to it that a brush with fame, big opportunity or recognition from a VIP, fuels your ambition. You are not meant for small-minded people and places, Scorpio. You’re far too deep for that. This week pushes you out of your comfort zone, which is just what you need. Don’t waste your talent resting on your laurels.


Archers should press ahead with career plans. Growth, expansion and opportunity are ripe for the picking with Venus and Mars hanging out in your professional zone. The only catch is, you have so much going on, it’s hard to complete every task. Juggling all the balls in the air is a sweet challenge when success is just around the corner.

CAPRICORN horoscope

Publishing a book, article or newsletter is doable for literary goats this week. Not started writing yet? Friday is the perfect day to begin. Others may present a unique idea on social media, and have it well received. Think carefully about the message you want to get across. Others are listening, so make your influence count.

AQUARIUS horoscope

Venus and Mars tantalise your sex zone this week. Be brave and explore a fantasy that’s long aroused you. If you’ve been too shy to bring up an erotic desire with your lover, this week gives you your chance. Singles receive a ton of attention, with many options to choose from. But that doesn’t mean you should follow each possibility into the bedroom.
