Your recreation sector is loaded with planetary sparkle, making for heaps of get-up-and-go this week. If you play a team sport, your club is in for a win. Less sporty Rams (is there such a thing?) set their imagination alight with a brilliant artistic project. Follow through with any inspiration that drops in and trust your creative talent.

Venus glows in your passion zone by mid-week. Share a romantic moment with your sweetheart and don’t hold back your honest sentiments. Expressions of adoration will be embraced with open arms. Single Bulls happily fly solo, turning their attention towards self-care. A kind gesture reminds you of how awesome you really are.

GEMINI horoscope

Tick off your to-do list around the house or in the office when motivated Mars makes it his mission to get stuff done. Delays, or a frustrating push-pull situation, are finally given the green light. Not only will you achieve a long-standing goal, but closure allows you to forge ahead with a new set of plans. Set your sights on slaying future progress.

Crabs are highly attuned to the moon, and by week’s end, you’ll be wanting to take a breath. Slow down and take a look at what’s going on behind the scenes. Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing at all. Allow matters to happen of their own accord and don’t push. Everything will unfold exactly as it’s meant to. Exhale.

The sun lights up your cash zone for the next four weeks, beginning on Friday. An opportunity that encourages you to grow an investment, increase revenue or simply add to your savings stash presents itself. Grab it with both hands. Growth may require you to get real about your finances, but trust that this is ultimately in your long-term best interests.

VIRGO horoscope

Happy birthday Virgo! The sun begins to thaw out any lingering insecurities, vulnerabilities or reservations by week’s end. This is your time to sparkle, so don’t be shy. All eyes are on you now, for the right reasons. From your birthday, you will set up an essential trend for the upcoming 12 months. Aim to emphasise all that’s positive. Do away with anything that dulls your shine.

Make sure you are being told the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Friday sees deceptive Neptune in a tangle with Mercury. A little white lie may seem harmless at first but has the potential to spiral out of control if someone close gets wind of what’s being said behind their back. Be transparent in all discussions and expect the same in return.

SCORPIO horoscope

Someone in a position of authority may not be all that they seem. If you get the sense that they are all smoke and mirrors, you’re probably on point. Mercury and Neptune create confusion, so defer big decisions or commitments where this person is concerned. Next week, you’ll have a better understanding of where you stand.

Something that’s been weighing on your mind evaporates by mid-week. Now that Jupiter, your planetary ruler, is back to his happy-go-lucky self again, the struggle won’t be relevant anymore. Either you won’t care about the outcome, a solution presents itself, or you’re blessed with a miracle. Fortune smiles on you Saggie.

CAPRICORN horoscope

As if struck by lightning, you just get it this week. Venus smiles on your ah-ha zone, bringing a solution, or a critical moment of understanding that helps you out of a sticky situation or a problematic relationship. Follow through with an idea and don’t allow anyone to put you down. You’re well aware of the pitfalls. Do it anyway.

Mars motivates you to make a meaningful change. Venus offers financial help to make it happen, and the sun brings the gift of luck and opportunity. All the big cosmic players are batting for your team. No excuses; go after what you want this week. Hesitation is not your friend. Push forward with confidence and certainty.

The cosmos sweetens your relationship zone. You are likely to be entertaining a new romantic liaison, holding up an existing connection, or entering into a business partnership. Although it’s been a case of two steps forward, one step back, you can now proceed with gusto. Pour your full attention into this relationship to reap rich rewards.
