Electric Uranus halts its retrograde in your professional sector. Lionesses lacking direction suddenly become clear on their goals, as if hit by a bolt of lightning. Feeling stuck where work is concerned? Perhaps you know what you want, but an obstacle prevents you from moving forward. From Thursday, expect a career reboot.

When radical Uranus shifts gears on Thursday, you stop the struggle. It’s not that you’ve given up on a goal, person or project, you’ve simply decided to choose yourself. Making yourself priority #1 carries immeasurable bonuses, as you'll soon realise. Also, don’t be surprised if the thing you’ve had to discard in favour of self-love returns to you on a silver platter.


Tidy up odds and ends around the house, Libra. Investing time and effort into making your home run more efficiently produces fantastic results this week. The Sun’s link to Pluto creates family friction. Yet, like a diamond forged under pressure, your bond tightens if you don’t shy away from having a tough, deep conversation. Be raw and real.


You're the mistress of secrets, Scorpio, yet someone close is keeping something from you. Not that it matters - your world goes on spinning regardless. Still, you need to know that you can trust your nearest and dearest. For now, tighten your inner circle. Be selective about how you disclose sensitive information and who you open up to.

A love concern eases when Uranus flows forward on Thursday. After a long spell in retrograde, the rebellious planet stops testing you. And you’ll be pleased to know you’ve passed! New possibilities open up for singles, especially those tired of dating the same type. Couples put a weighty issue behind them to focus on conquering a monumental future goal.


Thanks to Mercury’s meet up with lucky Jupiter, you’re rewarded with an accolade, award or bonus. Get clear on your monetary goals because this week, they’re achievable. Or, at least you can get the ball rolling in the right direction. On Tuesday, Jupiter’s kiss with asteroid Chiron heals a rift. But, the question is, do you want to go back?


Do your best to relinquish control, Aquarius. The harder you push a point or try to bend a person’s will, the more it’s inclined to backfire. However, if you let go and let flow, a miracle happens. A leap of faith is called for, even if you're fearful. In fact, if something pushes you out of your comfort zone, that’s your cue to press on.

It’s not what you say but how you say it that really matters. And thanks to Wednesday’s new moon, that couldn’t be more true for you, Pisces. You’ll want to get your point across, but your words fall on deaf ears if you don’t verbalise your thoughts correctly. Construct your conversations carefully, and you’ll get what you want.
