Fire up those desires
Don’t ignore where your heart wants to take you
Are you worth more?
What adds up in terms of soul satisfaction, love or other take-outs features this week, Aries. Ruler Mars is asking: How much do you want it? Now ‘it’ in this instance could take the form of anything from that better paying job, to that thing you love to do and lose yourself in (in which case the ‘it’ may be the time to do that), or even that relationship. If you know what you want, the drive to have it sends you out into one of your most fearless weeks yet!
Of course, with any planetary transit, there is always the flip side. Of burning, blazing desire to have, do or achieve, the opposite side of the coin is: Is this really worth it? Or conversely: Am I worth more? If so, you will also being weighing that up. And focussing that passion and desire for more accordingly. There’s a lot of win around you this week. But how much you gain honestly depends on the actions you take.
Mars in your 5th is the instigator, the fueller of the fire, the drive that sees you attain your dreams. Mars in your 5th is all about taking action. The kind that wells up from your core and allows you to express the true you. Just unleash it this week, and go in the direction it wants to take you.
In a nutshell: Scorching intention and desire fuels your self-confidence and banishes hesitation this week, Aries. You’re unafraid to own whatever it is you want. And equally determined to make it happen!

Cups are made to be refilled
Ideas are wings which lift you higher
Jupiter now in your sign offers the best cycle for personal expansion, satisfaction and yes, love, you have experienced in 12 years. It’s funny but often Jupiter transitting our 1st can be better for relationships and attraction than Jupiter in our 7th. (Go figure!). You are at your personal best for the next 12 months, Taurus. The question is: how will you use your superpowers?
You exist right now to be the most magnificent version of yourself that you can be. That is part of the superhero job description. Did you check out your Jupiter Juice Astro Tarot card for this transit? If so, you’ll know your card is the over-flowing Ace of Cups (do check it out right now if you’ve yet to!). But what this tells you is its time for no-holds barred you. And to lift those limitations you’ve been holding on to around what is possible for you. This is what unleashes your greatness.
An extra boost this week comes from Venus now in your 3rd infusing what you say, create or send out with enhanced creativity, zesty love and allure. Watch the 26th for what this can bring you. Mars in your 4th aligning to the Sun in your self-worth sector welcomes a little competition. But also says you can crush it if you encounter it. Don’t hold back when it comes to working that magnificence this week. To the fierce, go the spoils, Taurus!
In a nutshell: You were not created to imitate others. Nor to apply a filter to your authenticity or greatness, Taurus. This week urges you to rock out everything that makes you special. That self-belief is what attracts the results you’re seeking.

What is the world reflecting back at you?
Opt for the last minute or surprising choice!
Venus in your 1st is like an early birthday surprise. Combined with Jupiter and also Uranus in your 11th, it puts you in goal-getting, attracting, social-butterfly mode. You want to unfurl those iridescent wings and show the world those colours.
A little or even a lot of focus on your image, appearance, brand, look, profile, style, face, ‘do’ and social media presence is permitted now.

Your future – and your people, await the new you that you are projecting.

Cut through distraction to the core of truth
Focus on what really matters
Long term planning brings a whole lotta satisfaction
Your usual attention to detail is replaced by big picture thinking. You opt for broad strokes instead of the finer points for once. But this allows you to maximise all the opportunities around you this week. And to focus on the best one.
You have an almost psychic ability to know how things are going to pan out over the long term. And this is what hones that focus. You see what and where the best possible potential for you lies. As a result, you cut through confusion and go right to the chase. Others may try to dress something up with distraction or details which when it comes down to it, honestly don’t matter. And if so, you’ll call them out over it. The hill of beans which Humphrey Bogart talks about in Casablanca in other words.
Mars in your 12th is only after the truth, integrity and in you putting your energy into what DOES matter. It tells you anything less is a waste of your life force. You may suddenly discover a seismic shift in how you define success or what you are aiming for as the Sun lines up with Mars on the 22nd showing you the real take out. It either measures up or you realise the cost on a soul level is no longer worth it.
If you do change direction this week, the alignment between Venus and Uranus on the 26th reveals a new, easier or better path for you. Or delivers a surprising revelation or insight handed to you by another which allows you to course correct. A highly unusual, stimulating and beneficial friendship could be on offer. Or someone shows you they are not a friend of the fair weather kind. Even if you had them pegged as just an acquaintance until now. It could be their ability to cut away the dross and reveal the real treasure within that allows you to do the same.
In a nutshell: No matter how others may try to dress things up, you have an uncanny ability to cut to the heart of the truth this week, Virgo. This talent for cutting away the extraneous means you’re not distracted by what doesn’t matter. Leaving you to focus on what does.

Restore the faith
Claim that opportunity
Take that walk into a wild, new world!
You’re in daring, freedom loving, let’s-take-that-walk-on-the-wild-side mode this week. Your sense of adventure is awakened. You want to explore or try something new. If you’ve been feeling in the wrong place, out of sorts, spinning your wheels for far too long, or simply that someone moved your mojo, this week sets that all to rights, Libra.
Travel, expansion, solutions or an opportunity could be held out and it’s up to you to break through any resistance and claim it as the Sun in your 9th aligns to Mars in your house of the future (22nd). Ruler Venus now in your 10th of rewards, status and recognition just wants to raise your personal stock now. It tells you to take yourself seriously. And also what you want just as seriously. Do know exactly what that is, Libra.
You have both Jupiter and Uranus in your ‘other’ money house along with the North Node for a little while longer. It’s all about what you have been working towards. And also about your self-belief in your ability to get it. A Libran friend of mine had a revelation courtesy of Jupiter in her 8th. And that was all that was holding her back from attaining what she wanted was her lack of faith in herself. She pushed that reset button and everything fell into place. Do look to this when it comes to what is held out or possible for you. Yes, you are ready. Yes, you are capable. And yes, you CAN, Libra.
In a nutshell: Is the only thing holding you back your loss of faith in yourself, Libra? If you’ve felt cut off from your magnificence, then this week restores that. Enabling you to take advantage of what’s on offer!

Explore the ‘hidden’ relationship in your life
If money talks, then what is it saying?
What sets your values?
Money matters this week. You have Mars is in its ancient ruling 8th in your chart. Plus of course, Pluto now in your 2nd. This involves you and another. Your spouse, live in lover, boo. Your boss, even an institution – the government if you receive benefits, your bank with regards to loans and mortgages. Your income and in the case of your relationships, who has what and how much.
There is the other ‘hidden’ relationship in our lives. And that is our relationship with our money and the material world. But money often plays a role in our human interactions that reflects these inner dynamics in some way. Do look at what money talks about when it comes to love or any duo, duet or double act you are in. And how this may merely be a manifestation of what you think about your cash or your financial situation in general.
The 22nd could deliver a raise, increase in business or financial news thanks to the alignment between the Sun and Mars. While Venus is its ruling 7th aligns to Uranus in your 5th. Do however be aware of the reality check or add-up angles between Jupiter and Mars (23rd). And the Sun and your ruler Saturn (28th).
If you are in a relationship, is there an unwritten rule that whoever has the economic power calls the shots? If your financial dynamic changed, how do you think this would affect your relationship? Is your boo who is better off than you, asking you to move in with them? And if so, how do you feel about that? Or are you the cashed up one offering your resources to that significant other or friend who has so much less? Have you discussed financial matters or are you ignoring them as they seem ‘unromantic’? Ruler Saturn says: talk about the bottom line. Money isn’t about your worth. So, don’t set your value by it. But do value what you bring to the table, Capricorn.
In a nutshell: Whether we know it or not, we are in a relationship to the material world. And this invisible one often sets the tone for our outer ones. So, do look at how they are interwoven and impact this week. If money talks, what does it say about love?

Enter the Now Age State of Living
Hot or not. There is no middle ground
Get yourself some hot love!
The heat is most definitely on this week thanks to smokin’ hot Mars in your 7th and the Sun in your 5th. Fuelled by Pluto’s reactor of attraction in your 1st, whatever you focus on, just seems to manifest as a natural law of physics. This especially applies to love, romance or anything that fires up your soul, Aquarius.
Conversely of course, you will be totally unable to fake it if you are not feeling it. One effect of Pluto’s arrival in your sign is an authenticity fusion reaction. You would not be able to hide your real feelings if you tried. There is also no meh, middle ground either. That place where things are sort-of-okay. There are either scorchingly, searingly intense. Or sub-zero frozen. With little hope of a thaw. You’ll act accordingly.
This doesn’t just apply to relationships but also what you do and even where you live. This week sees Venus in your 6th align to ruler Uranus in your 4th. Which could see changes around your job bring in others around where you live. Any feelings of being frozen in place for instance, shut out, restricted or down-sized against your desires, re-enter the hot zone thanks to the efforts you make. Passion isn’t just a fuel. It’s a state of living, Aquarius.
In a nutshell: Turn up the heat on living and loving in the Now Age, Aquarius. You feel everything with a new intensity. It’s either smokin’, passionate and makes you feel intensely alive. Or resigned to the Ice Age without hope of a defrost. Be a heatseeker, this week!

You don’t need options. You just need what’s right
Future proof your decisions
Get serious about those results
What you say, share or send out – or even swipe, brings you answers and results this week, Pisces. Just know what result you are aiming for. It’s time to get choosy and strategic now. Saturn in your sign tells you – you don’t need multiple choices. You need the one that’s right.
But you won’t get any results unless you take action. Be it applying for that job, making the first move, doing something with that idea – all remain in the realm of possibilities until you act. Look to your long term take out rather than instant gratification now. And this is where lasting satisfaction will flow from. Yes, that job you just saw may pay better that your present one. But would taking it bring you closer to your long term career goal? Or is it just another dead end?
Venus in your 5th is one of the most powerful transits of attraction we are blessed with during our yearly solar cycle. And you are having yours now. Yes, luck is on your side and as Venus aligns to Uranus on the 26th, surprises and opportunities could appear. But again, just because you have attracted it (or them!), does this actually mean this or they is what you want or need for the long term? Saturn hands us maturity, discernment and self-control. You have that in spades now. Do use it. And don’t forget Pisces, just because you’ve landed a fish, doesn’t mean you can’t throw it back. And cast that line out again for a bigger one!
In a nutshell: Saturn in your sign should boost your ability to see clearly what’s right for you – and what isn’t. You’re in a peak cycle of attraction, Pisces. But just because something comes to you, doesn’t mean it’s right. And if it’s not, throw it back. You’ve bigger fish to attract.
