Your stars today



ARIES March 21-April 20 ***

Mercury is in retrograde mode, so it will be easy to misinterpret what people are saying over the next three weeks. 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 career zone expect mix-ups, missed appointments and/or computer chaos at work. It’s not a good time to apply for jobs – wait until after January 25.

GEMINI May 22-June 21 **

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

CANCER June 22-July 23 ***

There may be a tussle between head and heart/intellect and intuition today Crabs, as you struggle to make a decision about something that’s been worrying you. In the end, let your inner voice be your guide.

LEO July 24-Aug 23 ***

Be extra diplomatic with family and friends over the next three weeks as Mercury reverses through your relationship zone, until January 25. If you are too self-absorbed, loved ones won’t be impressed!

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 **

Your ruling planet Mercury is reversing through your work zone Virgo – until January 25. So prepare for mixed messages, missed appointments and plenty of computer chaos. So strive to be extra patient!

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 **

Over the next three weeks 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 and intentions.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 **

The Sun/Pluto hook-up highlights your deep and powerful energies, so tread carefully Scorpio. Avoid getting drawn into arguments, and strive to keep your possessive streak under control.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 **

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

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 **

The next three weeks will be tricky for money matters Capricorn, 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.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 **

Mercury is reversing through your sign Aquarius, so take extra care when travelling, texting, tweeting and talking with others. Otherwise mega misunderstandings, mix-ups or delays are likely.

PISCES Feb 20-March 20 **

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


Mercury’s retrograde so it’s time to revise, re-schedule, reboot and review.


Focus firmly on personal relationships in 2016. As birthday great Kahlil Gibran reminds us “Life without love is like a tree without blossom and fruit.”
