MONDAY AUGUST 19, 2019  

ARIES March 21-April 20 ****

Today’s fiery Aries Moon is fabulous for initiating ideas plus putting plans and projects into action. Your outer and inner needs are in harmony – for a change – so make the most of it.

TAURUS April 21-May 21 ***

Do you have a problem that’s bothering you Bulls? Listen to the wise words of a trusted friend, or tune into what your inner voice is telling you. It will point you in the right direction.

GEMINI May 22-June 21 ***

Today, intuition will give you the winning edge with family, friends and colleagues. But – when it comes to financial matters – don’t rush. Take the time to dot all the I’s and cross all the T’s.

CANCER June 22-July 23 ****

Resist the urge to take yourself too seriously today Crabs. The Moon’s connecting with positivity planet Jupiter. So do your best to communicate with extra compassion and a sense of humour!

LEO July 24-Aug 23 ****

You’re keen to nurture old friendships – and attract exciting new acquaintances into your peer group. Look for people who support and encourage your goals and dreams for the future.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 **

Hasty words will land you in heaps of trouble today. Think carefully before you say things that you later regret. If you pick a fight, you’ll find you’ve bitten off more than you can chew.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 ***

The more intently you listen to others, the more successful the day will be. Loved ones will continue to surprise you, so make sure you keep listening closely and communicating well.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 ***

Communication may be strained with a friend or family member today. If you are a super patient Scorpio – and keep the lines of communication open – then things will gradually improve.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 ****

Your motto for the moment is from birthday great, fashion designer and style icon Coco Chanel. “How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.”

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 ***

The Aries Moon helps you approach domestic duties in an energetic and enthusiastic way. But resist the urge to be a real worry-wort, as you stress about something that you have no control over.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 ***

The Moon’s in Aries which emphasises your independent side. But, with Venus in your relationship zone, you’re also in the mood to share. So strive to get the balance right between giving and receiving.

PISCES Feb 20-March 20 **

Sporty Pisceans - the Moon’s in active Aries and Venus is visiting your wellbeing zone. So it’s time to enjoy getting physically fit, whether at the local gym or in the great outdoors.


Expect some fiery emotions as the Moon moves through sparky Aries.


You are confident and influential. The next few months is a terrific time to start a hot romance or find a fabulous new friend.
