ARIES March 21-April 20 ****

With curious Mercury now in your entertainment zone, it’s time to resume an old hobby or take up a new one. Plus initiate some lively conversation with a child, teenager or close friend.

TAURUS April 21-May 21 ***

Today’s stars highlight conversation and creative communication, as you enjoy the company of family and friends. Plus take the time to understand what a loved one is really going through.

GEMINI May 22-June 21 ****

Twins are in the mood to chat! Your ruler Mercury is in your communication zone. So you’re keen to express your ideas and enjoy plenty of stimulating conversations with interesting people.

CANCER June 22-July 23 ***

There is a tendency to overspend, as your wish list is a lot larger than your current bank balance. Mercury encourages you to become much more financially literate. Knowledge is power!

LEO July 24-Aug 23 ****

Communication planet Mercury is visiting your sign. So it’s the perfect time to express yourself – via the spoken and written word – in a wide variety of creative and colourful ways.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 ***

Don’t become too rigid in your approach and believe there is only one way to achieve your goals and dreams. Use creative visualisation to imagine your preferred future, and then pounce.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 ***

With Mercury navigating through your networking zone, expand your peer group to include an exciting and creative new crowd. Plus use your intuition to help solve a frustrating family problem.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 ***

The Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars are giving you a professional boost. You’re confident about your abilities, but that must be tempered with good communication skills and a willingness to compromise.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 ****

Mercury is moving through your travel zone, so it’s time to communicate with your overseas connections. If you amp up the Sagittarian charm, then you’ll uncover some helpful long-term contacts.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 ***

Coupled Capricorn - deep discussions with your partner could lead to a much-needed relationship breakthrough. If you are single and looking for love, then you’ll have to be creative and proactive.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 ****

With Mercury visiting your relationship zone, the more you communicate with loved ones, the better you’ll feel. Don’t be too independent. If you need help, then reach out to others and ask.

PISCES Feb 20-March 20 ***

Mercury is moving through your job zone. So aim to be more curious, creative and communicative at work. If you slow down, stagnate or procrastinate, then you’ll just be left behind.


Mercury in Leo favours artistic expression and creative communication.


On the outside you are a spirited and courageous person but resist the urge to be insecure and procrastinate. Nothing ventured; nothing gained.
