Your stars today

05 January 2017

Check what the stars have in store for you today.


ARIES March 21-April 20 ***

Mercury is in retrograde motion for five more days. So it will be easy to misinterpret what people are saying. If you take the time to listen to others, it will help you avoid misunderstandings.

TAURUS April 21-May 21 ***

With Mercury reversing through your deep and meaningful zone, concentrate on the needs of loved ones. And listen carefully, or there will be mix-ups. So the buzz word for the moment is concentration.

GEMINI May 22-June 21 **

Talkative Geminis love to gossip but beware the tendency to spill secrets over the next five days. If someone tells you something in confidence, make sure you zip your lip and keep absolutely quiet!

CANCER June 22-July 23 **

Mercury is reversing through your work zone until January 8. So prepare for mixed messages, missed appointments or plenty of computer chaos. So strive to be an extra patient Crab!

LEO July 24-Aug 23 ***

Over the next five days you need to be extra tactful with a frazzled child, teenager or friend. Otherwise there’ll be communication chaos, as you misread each other’s words, actions or intentions.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 **

Do your best to be diplomatic with family members over the next five days, as Mercury reverses through your domestic zone, until January 8. If you are too critical, loved ones won’t be impressed!

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 **

Be extra careful when sending emails, texts or tweets over the next five days, as it will be very easy to send something to the wrong person. Or your meaning could be completely misinterpreted.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 **

The next five days will be tricky for money matters Scorpio, as retrograde Mercury stirs up mischief in your finance zone. So resist the urge to make big ticket purchases – even if they are on sale.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 **

Mercury is now reversing through your sign. So you may experience a temporary crisis of confidence and doubt your talents or your judgement. Look to a trusted loved one for some wise reassurance.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 ***

Mercury is reversing through your solitude zone. So it’s the perfect time to revise, review, re-schedule and reboot. Plus contemplate where you’re going … and where you’ve been.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 **

Don’t believe everything you hear today. Or let someone take you up the primrose path to trouble. Avoid making important decisions, and instead concentrate on creative or spiritual pursuits.

PISCES Feb 20-March 20 **

With Mercury now reversing through your career zone expect mix-ups, missed appointments and/or computer chaos at work. It’s not a good time to apply for a job. Wait until after January 8.


When Mercury’s retrograde it’s time to review or rehash old projects.


Focus firmly on personal relationships in 2017. As fellow Capricorn Kahlil Gibran wrote “Life without love is like a tree without blossom and fruit.”
