April 20-May 20

Being told what to do is one of your pet hates. Today it will be difficult to have others suggest let alone blatantly boss you around and you’ll be having none of it. Not only will you think it’s rude your inner anarchist is coming out to play and stick it to the man so you most likely won’t think twice before telling someone, no matter how important, where to get off.


May 21-June 21

Learning new information is intoxicating for intellectual, inquisitive Geminis. Today you’ll be on a mission to quench your thirst for knowledge through scintillating conversation, books and podcasts. Some of you will take it one step further and enrol in a short course or decide to embark on or complete a degree. At work, putting your hand up for different tasks is also sure to open doors and get you noticed.


June 22-July 22

Your libido and need for intimacy is stronger than usual and you won’t be shy about letting your partner know. If you don’t have much planned for the weekend or events that can be cancelled try your best to have a last minute get away or at least do something romantic. You may also feel a little more jealous with no real reason. Acknowledge these feelings but don’t give them more attention than necessary.


July 23-August 22

The need to bring cohesion to your relationship, whether it entails marriage, a joint account or fostering shared interests will be at the forefront of your mind. With loving Venus is in your sign you’ll be in the perfect position to introduce changes. Those embarking on a new romance thank your lucky stars, literally – unions formed during this time are built to last. Also, schedule in some ‘me time’ for daily physical activity.


August 23-September 22

Achieving harmony by balancing various aspects of your life will become an increasing focus. Have you been paying too much attention to work? It’s time to spend more of your energy at home. If you’ve been taking care of yourself on a physical level but feel spiritually bereft concentrate on nurturing your soul. You instinctively know what makes you out-of-sorts– all you need to do is make the time to restore your equilibrium.


September 23-October 22

Today you’ll realise just how much the demands of daily life have been overshadowing your need for fun. Suggestions from your most indulgent and least sensible friends will prove entertaining but also schedule in some well thought out R&R, whether it’s investing in a new hobby or going to the ideal day spa. You’ll feel like a brand new person and will aim to make the pleasure principle a priority.


October 23 – November 22

If you’ve been somewhat absent at home today you’ll be forced to get in touch with what’s going on under your own roof. A sudden yearning for domesticity will see you enthusiastically roll up your sleeves and take care of business but don’t be disappointed if household members don’t share your enthusiasm. Lead by example but don’t force issues. This is also the ideal time to hold an important conference or business meeting.


November 23-December 20

The week ends on an extremely busy note and luckily the weekend will bring its fair share of relaxation and rewards. Getting back to the busy stuff though, don’t get ahead of yourself in order to cross the finish line or it could become your undoing. Focus on one task at a time and be in the present moment instead of counting the minutes. You will clock off and leave work at work.


December 21-January 19

As a pragmatic earth sign you generally lean more towards logic than instinct relying on the cold hard facts to draw your conclusions. Today though, with your intuition being heightening your instincts and gut feelings are sure to serve you much better. Pay special attention to your dreams, surroundings, odd happenings and body language. Picking up on even the subtlest nuances will give you great insight into people and situations.


January 20-February 18

A bout of melancholia can be a very cathartic thing. Today you may be feeling a tad blue so get out a heart-wrenching flick or book and arm yourself with a box of tissues. Yes, you will feel more than a tad vulnerable but on an entirely different note this exposure may come via kudos for a job well done. With communicative Mercury in your relationship sector it’s the perfect for a heart-to-heart.


February 19-March 20

A conversation or situation may prompt you to question your most entrenched beliefs. A shocking piece of information could also cast someone in a totally different light. Try to be flexible and digest things before forming opinions. Meanwhile, you may feel a twinge of jealousy, in one of its many forms, whether is caused by a friend bragging about their new promotion or your partner being a little too friendly.
