What do the stars hold in store for you?

12 May 2019 - 00:00

20 April – 20 May
Who could fail to notice that inner glow of confidence? You're learning to like yourself more and to understand the true value of intimacy; even more after the love planets move in on Thursday. There are risks, but the potential for reward is equally powerful. Launch new projects at work. Your talents are growing; your efforts are being noticed.
21 May – 20 June
Here's your chance to make a name for yourself if you're keen. Make the most of the energies around you. Announcing that you don't need anyone's help is not just moronic - it's untrue. Besides, you don't want to make promises you can't keep. With that big mouth, you'll be promising the sun, moon and stars. And for that you'll definitely need assistance. Use Saturday's full moon to make the most of what's out there.
21 June – 22 July
Too much responsibility has brought a heaviness to your life. Enough of that. Suddenly you're bursting with a confidence that can literally make dreams come true. The ideas are there. As long as you can resist that age-old compulsion to doubt their source, you'll find the courage to take that leap into the unknown. Saturday's fabulous full moon brings talent and help. And your career planets are providing the rest.
LEO23 July – 22 AugustIf there are documents to sign, do it now. And if you're even vaguely worried about the details, ask for help. This is your week to flourish and prosper. Playing the victim is not allowed. If new offers seem limited, do something to change the energy. Go somewhere new, change your routine. Do something - anything - different.VIRGO23 August – 22 SeptemberThose career moves aren't over yet, so if the yearning to retire to the beach has grabbed you again, put it straight back in its box. New and fascinating directions are coming at you from the oddest sources. Seize them all, and experiment whenever you have time to play. There are forces coming that will demand all your time. There won't be much left for a personal life.LIBRA23 September – 22 OctoberIf you're looking for a job, polish your briefcase, and make sure your name is on all the appropriate lips. Your real interests, meanwhile, have shifted towards the alternative. So even though your romances are on slightly shaky ground, you're ready to take a leap into the unknown. Which is great. No guarantees except that you'll certainly have an adventure. Save your money though. It's coming in dribs and drabs for a while.SCORPIO23 October – 21 NovemberThere's hard work ahead, with the kind of effort that will leave you gasping. You can do one of two things: embark on an immediate and drastic fitness programme, or look out for people to help you. As you know, personal limitations are both inevitable and frustrating. What the planets are asking for is a direction change, not a jibbering idiot. Don't worry about your love life for now.SAGITTARIUS22 November – 21 DecemberDelicious flashes of inspiration are like sparks of genius sneaking through the haze of distractions. And there's no-one to match you at distractions. But for now, not even you can stop the flow of magic. And if you work with it, you may even discover a way to re-invent the wheel. Or something a tad more useful. The love life will improve next week. For now, avoid power struggles.CAPRICORN22 December – 19 JanuaryThe love life is not exactly going according to plan - so much so that a sudden mind-shift might even be necessary to hold off a war. Meanwhile, how about putting down the long-term plan to have a less demanding look at what you already have. Don't hold back. There's a full moon visiting your career on Saturday. Any new ideas can be presented with a flourish. Good news is already on its way.AQUARIUS20 January – 18 FebruaryHow about networking? That's what's needed to jack up your professional life. Everyone can use influential friends sometimes. Take courage and do what you need to. If there are any arguments, let the other guys win. You'll soon find you're making a fuss about nothing. Watch your health. Your energy is temporarily down, so you'll need supplements. Or maybe a massage. Just relax.PISCES19 February – 20 MarchIf relationships are causing problems, starting by deepening your friendships and work from there. One thing: for the time being, fantasy brings nothing but disaster. If you can stick with reality, concentrating on allowing a greater flow of love into your life, you'll be fine until these energies move on. The career is doing fine on its own for now. Even your money dramas are okay. Stop worrying about rubbish.ARIES21 March – 19 AprilPay close attention to everyone you meet this week. Get their cards, write down their names and keep in touch. A pool of talent is growing around you. Slowly you're beginning to like the idea of working as a team, and moving on to bigger projects as a result. Keep cool. The way you handle prosperity is important. Use Saturday's full moon to launch new projects. You'll be helped.
