Your weekly horoscope

Your week in the stars

By Alison Moroney

ARIES Mar 21 - Apr 20

Until December 20, 2020, Aries will be guided by a strong sense of destiny as they reach for the stars. This is a time of accomplishment and recognition, where dreams for which you have worked become reality. The level of success attained is dependent upon both the extent and quality of your efforts. Humility is a great asset during this time.

TAURUS Apr 21 – May 21

The next three years is all about knowledge and the acquisition of it for Taurus. You place great importance on these matters as you strive to reach for an understanding of the complex world around you and its various philosophies. You may travel for these reasons. However, it is always important to understand the limitations of your own knowledge and the consequences it may have for you.

GEMINI May 22 – June 22  

Gemini individuals will be taking the lessons of the past few years and placing them into context, especially as they weigh up what is valuable to them. In a sense, you are feeling vulnerable as result of recent experiences, particularly in terms of support. Until December 20, 2020, you will be learning to balance your values better against those of others.

CANCER Jun 23 – Jul 23 

Cancerian natives will be redefining themselves in relationship to society and the world during the coming three years. This involves knowledge of self and your capabilities, particularly in dealing with intimate relationships and people with whom you work. Responsibilities and their management are key to success in these areas. Handled properly, you will be laying the groundwork for success.

LEO Jul 24 - Aug 23

The importance of the next three years is that it is a time of preparation for future success. For this, Leo needs to be organised, efficient, practical, and in good health. There is much work to be done during this period but it is important that you maintain your health by not neglecting it or by overworking. Time is at a premium: use it wisely.

VIRGO Aug 24 - Sep 23

The next three years is not the time for risk-taking. Virgo needs form and guidance in the expression of their creativity, and also needs to seriously consider the responsibilities associated with close relationships. This is particularly true for Virgoan parents, where you will be learning as you try to provide form and structure for those in your care.

LIBRA Sep 24 - Oct 23  

In the three years from December 20, 2017, Libran energies will focus on establishing or re-establishing a place to call home. Part of this process involves the assumption of responsibilities and dependencies as you build and maintain relationships that are fundamental to life and its ensuing stability. This process involves being realistic and practical about these issues.

SCORPIO Oct 24 - Nov 22 

Until December 20, 2020, Scorpio will be in a life-phase where they will be examining their habits and the way in which they interact with people they see regularly. Communications may be difficult during this time, perhaps being restricted or time-consuming. You feel the need to work on ways to make yourself better understood, so this is an excellent time for learning.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 - Dec 21 

The coming three years is a time of economy, when you need to be practical about your financial resources and possessions. You’ll need to assess your position, and how to maintain and improve it. Many of your efforts will be directed towards these matters during this time, but will also depend on what you truly value in life.

CAPRICORN DEC 22 - JAN 19

Over the coming three years Aries will be redefining themselves and their position in the world, which necessarily involves making time for yourself and the structures in your life. It is a time of laying solid foundations for the future, so it is important that you be realistic and manage your resources, energy, and time wisely.

AQUARIUS JAN 20 - FEB 18

The next three years is about tidying up loose ends in your life, which means reviewing and assessing what you’ve done to date, and preparing for a major new life cycle that will begin in 2020. At times, you’ll need to get away from the mainstream of life just to get perspective. However, you will also need to consider future options and make appropriate preparations.

PISCES FEB 19 - MAR 20

Until December 20, 2020, the lives of Piscean natives will become more integrated with those around them. You’ll place great value on friendships during this period, but will also be very selective of your friends. In social situations, you are likely to learn how to play the game, at least superficially. This is also a time when goals will be reassessed on the basis of merit.
