JAN 20 - FEB 18

Confident and Optimistic

Aquarius, the sun in Taurus and your home zone encourages you to nurture yourself and take some time out to reflect on your goals and plans. You’ll enjoy spending time with close ones and attending to home and family projects.

Get ready, though, because a very powerful and proactive focus develops in your sector of talk and thought that will inspire you to network and reach out to others on your wavelength.

Convivial Venus moves into Aries on May 2, followed by optimistic Jupiter on May 10 and dynamic Mars on May 24, so you’ll be as charming and persuasive as you can be. You could be busy with all kinds of communication, study, teaching, selling, marketing, and e-commerce. And because of your optimism and determination, you can go far doing whatever you attempt.

Chatty Mercury will be retrograde from the tenth until June 3, which could delay certain of your plans. Check that you have the right time and day for any dates and other events, because there’s a chance you could get it wrong. Mixed messages could be another issue. Make sure others really do get your meaning.

You could be in the spotlight when the lunar eclipse takes place in Scorpio and a high-flying zone on May 15. Something you do or say could attract attention, and it could go viral if you’re on social media. Use this opportunity to send a positive message out to the world and you can benefit from this lunar phase.

Are you ready to indulge in your favorite activities? The sun’s move into Gemini and your leisure zone encourages you to take time out from work to be more playful and relax a little. Romance is in the cards, and if you’re back in the dating loop, this could be a busy time.

Finally, if you’re looking for a fresh start or eager to launch a product or project, the new moon on the thirtieth can be a huge help.
