Weekly Horoscopes are updated every Sunday.

ARIES March 21-April 20

With unique Uranus transiting through your sign (until March 6) have the courage and passion to be the authentic you (and let loved ones be themselves too). Be inspired by birthday great, anthropologist Margaret Mead “Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.” Coupled Rams – it’s time to connect with your lover on a much deeper level. Singles – if you meet someone special, avoid frivolous superficialities. Strive to get up-close-and-personal.

TAURUS April 21-May 21

Your ruling planet Venus is visiting your relationship zone (until January 7) so a problem with a loved one should start to improve, as you see things from their point-of-view. When it comes to your glorious goals for the future, don’t just talk about them. Long-term plans require action (plus the cooperation of others) to turn them into robust reality. The weekend stars highlight steady conversation and creative communication, as you enjoy the company of family and friends.

GEMINI May 22-June 21

Geminis can easily become preoccupied and side-tracked by the busyness and minutiae of daily life. But the more you concentrate on the needs of others, the better the week will be. With no less than six planets stimulating your relationship zones, you’re in a romantic and flirtatious frame of mind. So it’s the perfect time to pamper your partner with lashings of love and extra TLC. Are you sick and tired of being single? Sparks could fly with a lusty Leo or a sexy Sagittarian.

CANCER June 22-July 23

Attached Crabs – this week’s Saturn aspect is perfect for cementing your commitment to your partner, while Venus helps you find extra romantic ways to show your affection. Singles – give superficial suitors a wide berth. Look for lasting love with a soulful Scorpio or a conscientious Capricorn. With Mercury joining the Sun and Jupiter in your wellbeing zone, don’t just talk about improving your fitness. Jump off the comfy couch and get physical in the great outdoors!

LEO July 24-Aug 23

Monday is marvelous for making amends with a family member who you may have (unintentionally) offended. If you eat some humble pie, then the relationship will head in a positive new direction. It’s also time to share pleasurable activities with a loved one. Whether it’s a movie, a concert, a delicious meal or stimulating conversation, make it a priority to have fun together. You’re keen to say exactly what’s on your mind but resist the urge to pontificate about your opinions.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23

This week – despite domestic dramas and ongoing shenanigans – home is definitely where the heart is. Family matters and DIY projects are favored, as your ruler Mercury joins the Sun and Jupiter in your home zone. So do your best to keep the lines of communication wide open with relatives from near and far. Also, a troubled child, teenager, lover or friend is waiting to hear some sensible advice from the heart. And you’re just the person to give it!

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23

With Mercury moving into your communication zone, you’re keen to enjoy plenty of stimulating conversations with interesting people. So it’s a wonderful week for flashes of inspiration as you fraternize with local, interstate or international friends. Putting off domestic duties might seem like a good idea but you’ll pay the price further down the track. Sunday’s positive Venus-Saturn link helps you sort out your priorities and face your family responsibilities with a smile.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22

Saturn and Pluto are visiting the area of your horoscope that rules the internet, education and communication. So you could encounter problems with online trolls or other unpleasant people on social media. Don’t waste time worrying or retaliating! As birthday great Taylor Swift reminds us “Haters gonna hate.” Just shake it off and get on with the business of living a passionate and positive Scorpio life. Sunday is a super day to celebrate a relationship milestone.


The Sun, Jupiter and Mercury all move through your sign this week, which activates your spontaneous Sagittarian side. But avoid overcommitting and promising more than you can actually deliver. The weekend stars encourage you to tie up loose ends before you launch new projects. The more energy and focus you put into financial and business affairs, the more successful you’ll be. But you must do your homework and check all details thoroughly before you proceed.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20

Avoid being a cynical, over-critical and over-committed Capricorn. You’ve got a lot on your plate but don’t struggle on alone. Family, friends and colleagues are happy to help – if you let them. When you pool your talents with like-minded souls, magical things will happen! Venus boosts your charisma on the weekend, so make the most of it and call in a few old favors. If you combine a can-do attitude with a collaborative approach, then you’ll have a pleasant and productive week.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19

The more creative you are at work, school or college, the better the week will be. And the more you help others, the more connected you’ll feel. With Mercury moving into your networking zone, it’s also time to boost your social media profile by communicating with more family, friends, colleagues, clients and/or customers from around the globe. You have the ability to influence people in positive ways, as you employ praise and encouragement to get others onside.

PISCES Feb 20-March 20

Mercury joins the Sun and Jupiter in your career zone. So aim to be more curious, creative and enthusiastic at work. If you slow down, stagnate or procrastinate, then you’ll just be left behind. Sunday’s Venus/Saturn connection encourages you to have the confidence and discipline to turn your abstract ideas into a tangible form. But remember there’s a fine line between communicating your ideas with plenty of Piscean passion … and being completely misunderstood.

Last Weeks Horoscopes - December 3-9

KICKASS ARIES [March 21-April 20]

It’s a wonderful week to pursue creative projects, as your intuition and imagination run riot. But leave rational pursuits and important decision-making for a more suitable time, and make sure you can differentiate between fact and fiction. If you get lost in a fantasy world then you’ll just waste time and lose momentum. Friday onwards is fabulous for travel and foreign connections, as the New Moon activates your international/adventure zone and Mercury finally turns direct.

TENACIOUS TAURUS [April 21-May 21]

Venus (your power planet) is in your relationship zone until January 7. Attached Bulls – get creative and plan something special with your sweetheart. Singles – a friendship could take a surprisingly romantic detour! From Friday onwards, Jupiter and the New Moon signal a fresh start for finances. So - sometime over the next 12 months – some Taureans will benefit from an inheritance, divorce settlement, superannuation pay-out, bumper tax return, pay rise or lucky win.

GUNG-HO GEMINI [May 22-June 21]

Venus is visiting your wellbeing zone. So the fitter and healthier you are, the more you’ll be able to capitalize on good luck when it comes your way. But are you having problems with a partner, friend or family member? Focus your energy on that person and make them your number one priority. Energy goes where intention flows. If you combine a positive approach with good listening skills then – from Friday onwards – the relationship will start to improve.

CREATIVE CANCER [June 22-July 23]

Avoid being a clingy and complacent Crab. The New Moon encourages you to be more independent and adventurous – especially at work. If you stick to old ideas and outdated routines, then stagnation will set in. But if you are open to progressive changes and communicate in positive ways, then lucky opportunities will follow. Be inspired by fellow Cancerian, Sir Richard Branson. “Every success story is a tale of constant adaptation, revision and change.”

LUCKY LEO [July 24-Aug 23]

With this week’s Sun/Mars/Neptune connections, you’re in the mood to act on your hunches and follow your dreams! But don’t get too carried away, make dubious claims or promise more than you can actually deliver. Remember there’s a fine line between reaching for the stars and overreaching. If you take on too much, then you’ll just end up in a disorganized mess. Friday’s New Moon heralds a new romance, a rebooted friendship or a fabulous creative idea.


Close relationships will be confusing, as Mars and Neptune dampen your confidence and retrograde Mercury muddles your mind. Which could result in the tendency to send and/or receive mixed messages. Thank goodness Mercury (your ruling planet) goes direct on Friday. So communication – especially with family members – should gradually improve. The weekend is a wonderful time to get busy at home as you clean and de-clutter or tackle an overdue DIY project.

LOVABLE LIBRA [Sep 24-Oct 23]

This week’s planetary patterns maximize your natural charm but beware false flattery, and resist the urge to be talked into doing something you really don’t want to do. Stand firm and do your best to make your Libran lifestyle a true reflection of your core values and personal beliefs. Plus avoid the tendency to procrastinate about exercise and/or worry about work. Friday’s New Moon cranks up your communication zone as you make plans to socialize, study, teach or travel.


With vivacious Venus visiting your sign (until January 7) you’ll feel unusually flirtatious as you charm the cynics and dazzle the doubters. You’ll find it’s easier to get what you want if you stop being a Scorpio control-freak and try a double dose of diplomacy instead. Under the influence of Mars and Neptune, it’s time to be bold about pursuing your dreams. As birthday great Walt Disney declared “All your dreams can come true, if you have the courage to pursue them.”


Mars revs up your reckless side; Neptune scrambles your common sense; and retro Mercury confuses communication. So expect a few tricky days when you could feel discouraged. Energy levels will also be low so look after yourself … have a relaxing bath, a soothing massage or prepare some nourishing and nurturing comfort food. From Friday onwards (courtesy of the New Moon and Mercury moving forwards) you’ll be back to your sunny and funny Sagittarian self.


Are wonderful things happening to everyone else? Do you feel overlooked and under-appreciated? Avoid being cranky and critical. With the Sun, Jupiter and retrograde Mercury in your seclusion zone, success has been slowed down but that doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen. So be patient and take a long-term view. Your time will come! Under the glow of Friday’s New Moon, contemplate smart ways you can consolidate your strengths and work on your weaknesses.


Steer clear of making important business or financial decisions, as Mars and Neptune distort your perspective and confuse your mind. From Friday onwards, a fresh chapter opens up involving your peer group so make sure you choose any new friends wisely. In the words of singer-songwriter Jim Morrison (who was born on December 8, 1943) “A true friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself.” It’s also a good time to activate an adventurous new dream.


This week you’ll feel confused or discouraged but escaping into a fantasy world won’t make problems magically disappear. As the week progresses, do your best to be a firm and focused Fish, as you find creative solutions to current challenges. The gap between dreams and reality is wide but - with plenty of patience and persistence – you’ll eventually get there. A work issue improves from Friday onwards, when Mercury finally moves forwards in your career zone.
