Gorgeous Venus gets you questioning what you genuinely want from love. Amore comes in many different shapes and sizes. Sometimes, it's the quietest love that runs the deepest. This week, you'll realise who has your best interests at heart and who is selfishly serving their own agenda. Trust that the right person will be there for you.
Unpredictable Uranus is making waves in your home zone. An unexpected event catches you off guard, disrupting your usual well-organised routine. You won't appreciate an unannounced drop-in from a needy friend, or a surprise visit from a long-lost relative, but try to make the best of it. Learning to be more flexible is one of your biggest challenges, Taurus.
Don’t put off an interstate trip or a romantic B&B getaway. Even if you can only escape for a weekend, the break in routine will do you a world of good. If someone is doing their best to coax you away, take them up on it. Connections will deepen, friendships will be forged, and you’ll return with a spring in your step. Think of it as an investment rather than an indulgence.
La Luna enters your sign just before Thursday’s new moon, bringing a swell of emotions. Find an outlet for pent up feelings. Cry the tears, scream at the walls and punch a pillow if you have to. Allow resentments to wash away with the fresh lunar cycle. There’s nothing wrong with releasing your frustrations, provided you do so in solitude.
It’s a good thing you crave attention Leo, because you are in the cosmic spotlight, thanks to Thursday's new moon illuminating your sign. Use your power to your best advantage. You can achieve anything you set your mind to now. Improving your wellbeing is high on your agenda, so go for it! All the stars are aligning to help you become the best version of your physical self.
Mercury halts its retrograde on Thursday, healing a rift. Now that the communication planet is heading in the right direction, you have the green light to reach out to someone you've fallen out with. It's okay to send a text if you're not 100 per cent sure the olive branch will be accepted. Do it for you. Forgiveness is healthy.
If Venus could grant you one wish, what would it be? Be mindful about where you allow your thoughts to wander. The saying ‘energy flows where attention goes' couldn't be more accurate for you this week. See your heart's desire in your mind's eye and watch it manifest. Venus is waiting for your instructions, so be precise. Creating a vision board or journalling would be a huge help.
Thursday's new moon offers a shift in professional direction. Where do you want to be five years from now? Implementing changes with this lunar cycle will help you get to where you want to go. Feeling overwhelmed and unable to fast forward to your final goal is understandable, but if you progress in baby steps, you'll eventually find yourself at the finish line.
Further an educational path you've deferred, learn about a fascinating subject or sign up for a webinar. Thursday's new moon activates your study sector, encouraging you to expand your knowledge. Tip: if the topic doesn't rock your world, don't pursue it. You'll sparkle in a field that you love, but anything less will dull your shine.
Mercury is no longer retrograding through your relationship zone, which means it's all systems go! Are you holding back your true feelings? Speak up. Are you waiting for someone else to make the first move? Take the initiative. One word of advice; others may be feeling extra sensitive so while you have the thumbs up to push forward, make sure you do so with sensitivity.
Venus gets your sexy on this week. Singles will be revved up over a first date with someone they’ve long admired or lusted after. Couples can expect to feel the love in big waves of adoration and appreciation. If you want something from your sweetheart (a pet, gift or upgrading your Facebook status), now would be a good time to put the pressure on.
Thursday’s new moon inspires you to try out a new health trend. Whether it’s a juice fast, herbal detox or circuit session at the gym, you’ll reap fantastic rewards if you are willing to give it a try. Get out into the fresh air as much as possible this week. Activities around the ocean, water skiing or lakeside strolls will pep you up and rid you of lingering lethargy.
