While the Sun, Mars, and Mercury transit your 12th house, there�s a lesson or message for you in some foreign film, art form or unusual culture but you have to fling open the doors of your mind and look deeply at what is on offer.

23 November - 22 December

Any gloominess or pessimism about your love life requires immediate attention, your biggest obstacle now is apathy or laziness which can be accounted for by the retrograde movement of Saturn in your Sun sign. Stop meandering through the mental scenarios of how it "should of, could of, might have" been and deal with people and life events face to eye face to tell them how you feel and accept things as they are. Your circular emotional arguments aren't going to change the reality of any relationship and communication is the supreme key to solving any love problems. But that communication has to be reciprocated.


23 December - 20 January

You have an unexpected ally in your midst but may be completely unaware of it. Hidden things are revealed when planets transit your 8th house as the Sun, Mars, and Mercury are doing right now. Don't blow off your rivals too hastily because as the old adage goes, your enemy�s enemy is your friend. Someone else once said that you should keep your enemies even closer to you than friends.

20 February - 20 March

Your employers certainly want their pound of flesh. At times you�re going to feel that this is completely unwarranted but fear may hold you back from saying anything. On one level, if you�re committed to the profession and ideals of your work, this will strengthen you in the long run. If you've sold your soul for the 'buck' and only work for money, this is a tough period. Start doing what you love.


21 March - 20 April

The Sun has just transited into your fifth house along with Mars so you are dynamic now and possibly even wanting some heavy duty competition to keep you on your toes. A pressing problem arises on the domestic front as the Moon now also enters this volatile combination. Family members, probably older women, need help and guidance through a tough period of their lives. You don't need to say a word � simply being there and sharing your time and love will be ample support for the person in question today. Give them a call first.


21 April - 21 May

Financial loopholes don't often slip by your critical mind and eye these days. Today, however, remain alert to the possibility of some veiled or hidden clauses in contracts and discussions. You may be a little too confident about your position and may need to play devil�s advocate in any negotiations now. Re-phrase your questions and don't be afraid to ask the pertinent questions especially with Jupiter still transiting your sixth house of debts. Excessive optimism won�t help you now. It's a day of disclosure and truth for you.


22 May - 21 June

The mental confusion over relationship issues isn�t yet passing but your new identity is emerging, as a result, some of the important lessons you learned over the past few months. Loved ones may have wanted you to change and in doing so, they may not have been prepared for the outcome � the new you! Strangely, Venus in your Sun sign makes you even more appealing than you were before so whatever you�re doing you should perhaps keep doing it. Adjusting to this new identity will be just as difficult for you as it is for them.
