Venus moves signs this weekend, and Mercury and the Sun make tense alignments with Jupiter before converging around the Solar Eclipse and heading into Pisces. Combine all this with fiery Mars reacting with impressionable Neptune, and there’s a lot of emotion and sensitivity in the air as we head towards Valentine’s Day. But as feathers are being ruffled, something powerful is happening. This is a chance to change how we see one another and improve a partnership. Once the chips begin to fall, we’ll be delighted by where they land!

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

A biding by society’s rules is something that most of us want to do. But there are some rules that are difficult to adhere to. Even though they seem to be undeniably unfair, we’re supposed to follow them. The irony is that when you choose to campaign against regulations, you still have to abide by them! But some boundaries are made to be challenged. As Valentine’s Day approaches, you can not only break a rule, you can make a new one. It will enable a much easier relationship with someone important to you. In your love life: Just one small change — or flash of inspiration — is all that is needed for transformation. Are you looking at an inspired idea?

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

You’ve come to a point where repeating the same old habits and techniques is not bringing you enough satisfaction. You need to find a fresh approach as you prepare to tackle a familiar obstacle. It’s going to mean stepping out of your comfort zone. You might not master this new way of dealing with issues straight away. But you need some excitement in your world! Fortunately, with your ruler moving signs and romance in the air, a little risk seems like a fair price to pay. Jump out of that rut, and be innovative this week. In your love life: Ever reached your destination and not realised you have arrived? Perhaps you have already reached the perfect place.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

Remember the days when navigating involved a book of maps? Nowadays we’re much more likely to use satnavs. These machines are so fast at recalculating the route that you can’t always tell when you’ve gone wrong. You’re definitely heading in the right direction, so why is there a voice in the background telling you to make a U-turn? If you want to deepen a relationship, or bring romance into your life, you’re sharp enough to steer in the right direction. Follow your intuition and you’ll end up where you need to be. In your love life: Are you part of the solution or part of the problem? Focus on what can and will work out well; it deserves your attention.
#Gemini Daily Prediction

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 22)

When you walk down a narrow street, it’s customary to move out of the way for a person walking in the opposite direction. This small concession is often recognised with a quick nod or expression of gratitude. Where possible, we try to make room for other people in our lives, even though it’s not always to our immediate benefit. This week, with romance in the air as Venus changes signs, you don’t need to follow anyone else’s logic. The Solar Eclipse shines a light helping you to concentrate on what might be good for you. In your love life: A commitment is under question. You have been treading water and will feel better when you reach your big decision.
#Cancer Daily Prediction

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 23)

The greatest thinkers have to battle against the so-called ‘sensible people’ to make their voices heard and their discoveries known. ‘Evolution? How ridiculous!’ ‘The Earth is round? Don’t be absurd!’ But they had enough faith in themselves to stand by what they believed. Don’t be tempted to listen to other people’s ideas of sense this week. With Venus changing signs, a barmy suggestion might be the doorway to an inspirational plan. The Eclipse suggests that an amazing idea will arrive from an unusual source. In your love life: Some books take a few chapters to get going; then you can’t put them down. Don’t mistake slow change for no change.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

When a high-quality bargain store opens nearby, it’s surprising how few folk change their shopping habits and give it a try. It might be cheaper and closer, but they have a routine and they’re sticking to it. Why? Because it’s easiest to stay with the people, places and routines we know. But this week, as the planet of love changes signs, if you can bring yourself to change a long-standing pattern you can gain more than a cheap shopping bill. Challenge a tradition and you’ll be surprised by a delightful development this week. In your love life: Hope for the best; plan for the worst, they say. No! Plan for the best; give your finest energy to your highest aspirations.
#Virgo Daily Prediction

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

The Grand Masters understood that the creation of a masterpiece was a question of layering. They began with large brushes, creating sweeping suggestions of shapes and colours. Then they used finer brushes for the intricate details. Eventually they built so many layers that the casual observer could only see the whole. As the Eclipse arrives it brings a moment for abstract creativity and fun. Venus’ change of signs suggests that practice will eventually make perfect. There’ll be plenty of time to refine things later on. In your love life: Is a stressful situation on your mind? Vulnerable? You can’t fake disinterest but you can nurture greater independence.
#Libra Daily Prediction

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

Who are you? And no, I don’t mean your name, or any of those external features that constitute your identity. When we strip away the layers that make us who we are — friends, education, class — who’s left staring back at us? Is it your heart? Your soul? It’s a deeper, wiser part of you that is being inspired to bring you a message. As the Eclipse arrives and Venus changes signs, a tiny moment of awakening, and the recognition of the importance of a dream, could have a profound impact on the next phase of your future. In your love life: Don’t let your head get in the way of your heart when looking for peace, love and contentment. They are available to you.
#Scorpio Daily Prediction

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Ending a phone call can be difficult. Especially when there are emotions involved. It can feel as if whoever hangs up first is making some sort of statement. So both parties dance around saying ‘goodbye’. Sometimes politeness, or being sentimental, forces us to observe ridiculous rules. But when we’re honest and clear it’s rare to be misunderstood. As Valentine’s Day approaches, you’ll find that you can be much more effective if you simply say what you mean. A satisfying level of trust and warmth can develop. In your love life: Sometimes ridiculous rules have to be honoured. Do what you know will work and don’t worry about why it works!
#Sagittarius Daily Prediction

Capricon (Dec 22 - Jan 21)

The Solar Eclipse suggests your priorities are shifting. You’re questioning what you hope to gain from an enterprise that you’re involved in, and how it can benefit you. This is about more than satisfaction or pride. It’s the value of your pragmatic approach that’s being highlighted. And it’s only right that you should get what you deserve. As Valentine’s Day approaches and Venus prepares to change signs, by making a relatively small gesture, you’ll give someone the opportunity to show you just how appreciated you are. In your love life: There’s always someone who has all the answers. You might be better off with fewer of those... and more questions!
#Capricon Daily Prediction

Aquarius (Jan 22 - Feb 19)

Although this week’s Eclipse is only partial, it doesn’t mean that you’ll only feel part of the benefit. Prepare to have your mind expanded and your perspective altered. It arrives in your sign linked with your modern ruler, with Mercury in close cooperation. It suggests that a new way of looking at a problem will provide an ingenious solution, the answer you’ve been looking for. Not only can you find the final piece of a jigsaw, you’ll see the whole picture it forms, and realise the value of an important relationship you’re involved in. In your love life: Are you sitting right on top of a solution you seek. Step back, get some perspective. You already have what you need.
#Aquarius Daily Prediction

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

People seeking a forecast often ask when their life will change for the better. They hope that their astrologer will declare the precise day and time that their fortunes will turn round. But I don’t propose to do this! You hold your destiny in your own hands. The instant you resolve to allow your life to improve is the moment when it will. That being said, the Eclipse, plus Venus’ arrival in your sign, suggests that this week could be a good time to start! With romantic notions in the air, you could be in for a memorable week. In your love life: It is time to listen to your intuition and trust your imagination. Some challenges need more than just plain logic.
