October 23-November 22

Being one of the fixed signs of the zodiac you normally opt for a “better the devil you know” approach. However, devil’s advocate Mercury, moonwalks through your sign until the 20th leading you off the beaten track.

If you’re craving a bit of excitement there’s no need to take immediate action – use the retro-analytical skill-set that Mercury brings, and explore the root of your thoughts and feelings. An alternative approach could be exactly what you need to spice things up and spark your intrigue.

Cue motivational Mars, waiting impatiently for his grand entrance to Scorpio on the 19th. Make sure you’re you’re fighting fit with plenty of rest and some immune-boosting Echinacea, or you could burn out just as he arrives!

Mercury retrograde puts a wistful spin on your outlook, helping you realise what, or who, is clouding your happiness.

As lucky Jupiter boosts your confidence, you won’t have any problems believing in yourself – unfortunately, some people don’t want to acknowledge your input and may try to take credit for your ideas.

There’s no better way to show them what you’re made of than letting your success speak for itself! It’s time to don your boss cap, give 110% and override anyone who undermines you.

As long as you’ve studied the details and have all bases covered, your efforts could have a tremendous impact. By the Sagittarius New Moon on the 26th you’ll be reaping the rewards – even the naysayers will be impressed!

Mercury retrograde has arrived right on cue, to redress the growing imbalance between your work and home life. You’re good at what you do, but now you’re oversubscribed! Take a break to power-down, recharge your batteries, and re-think some strategies.

Spending time with your friends and family is a great way to share your workload-woes and let off steam. Your loved ones know you well and will be able to put you back in touch with your core mission, so figure out where you could be working smarter over drinks with friends.

Whether it’s redesigning your social media strategy, or switching-up your collaborative partners, you’ll have a much clearer idea about which direction you want to head in by the 20th, when Mercury turns direct.

January 21-February 19

There’s a whiff of spontaneity in the air this month, which has the potential to reduce your signature cool as a cucumber persona to an uncharacteristic hot mess!

The 12th’s magnetic Full Moon in steadfast Taurus celebrates that certain je ne sais quoi that only you possess, making it a great time to factor your natural talents into your career trajectory. But don’t reveal your plans to anyone unless you’re certain you’re ready to proceed – you’ll be held to your word when Mercury turns direct on the 20th.

As initiator Mars in your reputation sector encounters livewire Uranus on the 24th impulsive actions could trigger a rivalry – instead, tread lightly and you’ll be the talk of the town for all the right reasons!

February 20-March 20

Whether you’re thinking about retraining for a new career, or travelling to new lands on a spiritual quest, Mercury retrograde is transforming your vision of the future. With so many ideas percolating, examine your motivations under the microscope – it’s not just about the ‘what’ and ‘where’, but also your personal ‘why’.

Your ruling planet—ethereal Neptune—turns direct following the 26th‘s bountiful New Moon in Sagittarius so use this time to tackle your problems at the root and let go of murky mind-sets preventing your progress.

This a poignant time for closure and new beginnings so go with the flow and allow your personal philosophy to evolve as you grow – it’s time to take a leap of faith and embrace the adventure of the unknown.

March 21-April 20

Life is a mystery and sometimes Aries get so preoccupied with winning, they forget why they entered the race in the first place! It’s easy to think you’ve got it all figured out, but every now and then you have to take a break to get your bearings. 

Mercury retrograde is a period of introspection and for you, is moving through your psycho-analytical sector – you can’t hide from your deepest truths. Take some you-time to recalibrate your inner compass. If your current strategy isn’t working, there’s no shame in starting fresh on a new path. 

As Mars penetrates your subconscious realm, let go of preconceptions – you could arrive on the other side a completely different person with a whole new perspective on life.

April 21-May 21

You’re no stranger to the personal depths relationships can pull you into, and Mercury’s retrograde motion in Scorpio gives you plenty of food for thought around matters of the heart. Keep your wits about you as old friends (and flames) could test your commitment to your current life choices by reminding you what you’ve been missing. 

As one door closes, another one opens and the 12th’s Full Moon offers a renewed sense of perspective. Recognise patterns—and people—who have a knack for turning up when fresh cookies are baked and suddenly disappear when the dishes need cleaning…

Instead, recognise your own power; resist the urge to help others who demand a lot more of your time than usual and put yourself first – It’s time to prioritise your own needs!

May 22-June 21

There’s nothing wrong with the way things are Gemini, but life has become a bit predictable. Cue mischievous Mercury’s dramatic entrance, here to break the monotony of routine with his famous retrograde backspin!

Things will heat up on the 19th when searing Mars slips into sexy Scorpio, injecting some passion into your daily life. You’ll feel poised to heal the bond between your mind, body, and spirit so make time for exercise, address some of the bad habits that have crept back in, and meditate to keep yourself on track.

In all the excitement, don’t sign up to a gym membership or commit to anything long-term until Mercury turns direct on the 20th or your spontaneity could cost more than you bargained for!

June 22-July 22

With various commitments to manage, multi-tasker Mercury puts fun on hold while testing your ability to juggle conflicting demands. It may feel like you’re back at square one with too much to do, but it’s a case of mind over matter. You’ve got the mental stamina to accomplish anything, you just have to dig deep and believe in yourself! 

Once you’ve conquered the initial hurdles, you’ll get into your own stride. However, be realistic about how your time will be best spent – can you relieve some pressure by asking for help with the smaller tasks?

The Sagittarius New Moon on the 26th brings positivity, luck and a chance to start fresh – it’s a great time to introduce a daily dose of fun in your life.

July 23-August 23

Just like your feline counterpart, you certainly aren’t one for the chilly damp autumn weather – nothing has you reaching for a hot drink and curling up under a blanket with a good book, than this time of year.

But there’s a certain romance about the shift in seasons – it’s a great time to plan your year ahead: holidays, courses, change of career, relocating, babies…

Yes Leo, the deeper you go into your little cave, the bigger your ideas seem to get! So pay attention to the subterranean rumblings of your waking mind as Mercury retrograde digs up some of your personal buried treasure.

On the 26th, Venus and Jupiter boost your creative potential, so entertain those big dreams and let them take root!

August 24-September 22

Superficial chit-chat won’t cut the mustard for you this month Virgo, and as liability Mercury retrogrades through your communication sector, you could be subjected to a few awkward conversations.

Avoid being the source of contention by spell-checking your documents, double-checking the recipients of your emails, and scrutinising every detail before signing on the dotted line. It might also be worth glancing over your shoulder before expressing your honest opinion – you never know who’s listening and you’ll almost certainly be held accountable!

Fortunately, delightful Venus meets forgiving Jupiter in your home zone on the 26th, coinciding with a gentle and deeply healing New Moon in Sagittarius. Book in some self-care, batten down the hatches and seek sanctuary in the comfort of your own home.

September 23-October 23

Planetary powerhouses Saturn and Pluto are in the process of breaking down everything you thought you knew about yourself, revealing a steely core of determination. However, your mindset has changed and what matters most to you has evolved with time.

As Mercury retrograde moves through your values and possessions zone, you may feel the urge to clear out of your old belongings – so why not embrace this metaphor and release some baggage from the past? Detoxing your life and removing unnecessary clutter will help make way for the future. If it doesn’t reflect where you want to be, donate it to your local charity shop!

By the 26th’s liberating Sagittarius New Moon, you’ll feel optimistic about the future and ready for all it has to offer.
