Your stars today



ARIES March 21-April 20 ***

Expect conversation overload as Mercury reverses through your relationship zone, until October 9. Make sure you choose your words wisely Rams, otherwise you’ll just upset loved ones.

TAURUS April 21-May 21 ***

With Mercury now retrograde, avoid signing contracts and buying big ticket items – like a computer or car – until after October 9. Plus get any health problems checked as soon as possible.

GEMINI May 22-June 21 ***

Retrograde Mercury is confusing communication – especially with friends. But, if you are clear and concise with loved ones, then you can still get your message across loud and clear.

CANCER June 22-July 23 **

Prepare for some domestic dramas and family fiascos, as Mercury reverses through your home zone for three weeks. So avoid bringing up controversial subjects until a more suitable time.

LEO July 24-Aug 23 **

Mercury is reversing through your social networking zone so double-check all posts, tweets and emails before you press send. It will be very easy to send the wrong message to the wrong person!

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 **

Mercury is reversing through your money zone, so you need to get serious about your financial situation. If you don’t understand all the facts and figures, then find someone who does.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 **

With Mercury reversing through your sign, things won’t go according to plan. So improvisation and patience are needed between now and October 9, when Mercury goes direct again.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 **

Scorpios can be stubborn souls but you need to be flexible, as others won’t behave in rational and predictable ways that you can clearly fathom. Strive to keep the lines of communication open.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 ***

A relationship with a friend or acquaintance is about to go through a tricky patch, as Mercury confuses communication and heightens sensitivities. A dash of diplomacy will see you through.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 ***

Strive to make changes at work that allow you more freedom to express your Capricorn creativity. But tread carefully with a colleague or acquaintance who is feeling frustrated.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 ***

Be careful how you pass on information over the next three weeks, as Mercury is retrograde. If you are vague, then you’ll be misunderstood. A cautious approach is the clever way to go.

PISCES Feb 20-March 20 **

If you can, avoid signing contracts between now and October 9, as Mercury reverses through your joint finances and ‘money-from-others’ zone. Instead, be patient and wait.


Communication planet Mercury is in retrograde motion until October 9.


The coming year is the time to be more social, as you work on consolidating friendships within your local community.
