By Petra Papadopoulos

Aries

20 March – 19 April

Time to stop laying your pearls before swine, Aries – with Venus in retrograde until today, you’ve been fooled a few times by a wolf in sheep’s clothing. No more. Concentrate on your goals and be sure to be a little more wary – maybe some X-ray glasses will help? Destiny is looking at everyone with suspicion.

Taurus

19 April – 20 May

Venus is in your ninth house of adventure this week. February is probably your least favourite month – dreary, cold and punctuated with a false holiday forcing love about. Not your vibe at all. So take advantage of this planetary arrangement and do your jet setting thing – you might make some interesting connections on a beach somewhere. Destiny is buying new swimwear.

Gemini

20 May – 21 June

This past week your mojo has been a little off, but prepare for that to take a turn for the better and you’ll be damn full of mojo this week. All those mixed signals from a new lover will become much clearer, and if you have no new lover, then now is a great time to stop Facebook stalking your ex(es) and do some speed-dating or just go somewhere looking super fab. Destiny is deleting her Facebook account.

Cancer

21 June – 22 July

Va-va voom Cancer! There’s no denying you this week. What mama wants, mama gets is the theme for you, so take this opportunity to settle some old debts – monetary and emotional. Romantically, everything has been clear as mud lately, but finally with Venus out of retrograde you’ll get some clarity – go and get what you want. Destiny is restoring the harmony.

Leo

22 July – 22 August

You shine as a solo star Leo – you don’t need anyone bringing you down, they only steal your star power. Dump whatever relationship you are in, it’s time to let go of that dead weight and fly. You’ve got some big things ahead of you and taking someone along for that ride will only hurt everyone. Destiny is cutting her losses.

Virgo

22 August – 22 September

We all know you’re the most virtuous of the lot, Virgo, so stop it with the humble brags. It’s time to just embrace your inner diva now. Go get yourself a make-over, buy that pair of flashy shoes you’ve secretly been eyeing up, or that overly extravagant bag. It’ll do you good to indulge in yourself and it’ll show you’re human to the rest of us. Destiny is getting a a seaweed wrap.

Libra

22 September – 23 October

Your house hasn’t felt much like home lately – between tensions with the flatmate or family, you’ve not really wanted to be around there very much, it’s doing a number on your wallet and your soul. So, make amends and buy some new house things, it’ll make everything seem fresh and you can stop staying out late enough for everyone else in the house to be asleep before you get in. Destiny is checking out interior porn on Pinterest.

Scorpio

23 October – 22 November

Change is in the air. You’re used to your usual places and schedule, but there’s an easterly wind bringing some new potential in your life. It’s time to shake things up and take a chance with the people that have been milling around in your periphery lately. Go to brunch with them- everyone loves brunch and you can bond happily in an environment that is familiar to you. Destiny is making waffles.

Sagittarius

22 November – 21 December

Mercury is in your house of dreaming, so prepare yourself for a rocky week. Sleep will be scarce, but when you do get some shut eye, it’ll be both restless and inspiring. Waking up in the middle of the night isn’t great, but take advantage of the situation and quickly jot down those dreams before you lose them, there might be some answers or even some great business ideas in there. Destiny is buying a dream journal.

Capricorn

21 December – 20 January

No guilt week this week, Capricorn, as a hedonistic Venus will end with a bang in your sign. Eat all the cake, go to all the parties, drink all the cocktails. If there’s a time to indulge, lovely Capricorn, it’s this week. That shopping bag full of non-sale clothes in your ASOS online account? Press the checkout button. Destiny is readying her credit cards.

Aquarius

20 January – 18 February

Your muse has been whispering in your ear for weeks now, but you haven’t had the time or energy to indulge in your creativity zone. Luckily, with Venus in your second house of dreams and creativity, you can finally answer her siren call. Go get your painting in order, finish off that book, or even do some choreography for your dance class. Destiny is taking a life drawing class with Adonis.

Pisces

18 February – 20 March

A new moon in your twelfth house of healing and transitions will help you let go of some serious baggage. This winter has been heavy with strife and your bubbly self has not been able to shine, so this is a great opportunity to return to yourself. Try some meditation, or even Tetris, which has been known for its meditative qualities. Destiny is breaking out the yoga mat.
