Eager Rams love starting projects but often lack follow-through, so you can miss the Career Success Boat because you are rushing around and rarely finish things. But this week there are four planets moving through Capricorn (in your career zone) and your ruler Mars is in tenacious Taurus. So it’s time to complete an ambitious project with a
fiery flourish! Be inspired by birthday great, writer Benjamin Franklin. “Energy and persistence conquer all things.”
This week friendships are particularly favoured, as you link up with pals from home and far away (in person and online). You’re in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch or cheer up a work colleague who is down-in-the-dumps. Education, commerce and local travel will all benefit from the business-oriented New Moon. When there’s a global pandemic and times are tough, you need to be innovative, entrepreneurial and think outside the square!
Wednesday’s New Moon heralds a fresh financial or sexual chapter. So smart Twins will initiate a strategic savings or investment plan; attract a new business partner or love interest; or reboot a stale relationship. And 2021 is a good year to study, research and investigate. As birthday great Benjamin Franklin wrote “An investment in knowledge
always pays the best interest”. But avoid being too hasty on Tuesday – take the time to think things through.
Partnerships (of the romantic and platonic variety) receive a welcome boost this week, when Venus and the New Moon increase optimism and help you reform a rickety relationship that’s been experiencing problems. Setting positive new patterns of behaviour sees the union move to a deeper, more stable and more satisfying level in
2021. With Jupiter in your ‘money-from-others’ zone, some Crabs will benefit from a gift, bonus or boost to business.
You’re keen to make professional decisions and connections, as the New Moon highlights your job zone. So it’s a good week to initiate ideas, refresh work habits and create waves within your circle of influence. Attached Cats – with Jupiter and Saturn in your relationship zone, get talking and collaborating with your partner and find out their
plans for the future. If you’re a single Lion looking for a positive long-term connection –now’s the time to pounce!
This week make sure your talent for criticism (constructive and otherwise) doesn’t go into overdrive, as you critique the efforts of those around you. If you empathise with a frustrated child or friend, then it will help them to calm down and recalibrate. Virgos can get stuck in a very predictable daily routine. Jupiter, Uranus and the New Moon push you to broaden your horizons and take on board fresh ideas and alternative points of view especially at work).
Many Librans will commence an exciting new chapter involving home or family, which could include decorating, renovating, relocating or welcoming an additional family member. It’s also time to express yourself as you write, act, dance, draw, paint, perform, play music or sing up a storm. But friendships or finances look frustrating, as things
move at a snail’s pace … or even slide backwards! Persistence and determination will win out in the end.
The New Moon encourages you to reach out and help others, both within your circle of family and friends and within your neighbourhood. The close community connections you foster now will prove beneficial in the future. But steer clear of negative thinkers! Make sure the people around you are a powerful influence in positive ways. On Thursday, Pluto deepens communication and conversation, as you get deep-and-meaningful with someone special.
Relationships at work and within your local community will be a veritable minefield this week, as your (limited) patience and (under-used) diplomatic skills are tested. Trying to rush matters (and people) won’t help. Smart Sagittarians will strive to be extra tolerant and understanding. You’ll feel physically and mentally restless (especially on Monday and the weekend) so aim to get out and about as you check out new ideas, fresh friendships and places.
Capricorns are set for a colossal week as Venus, Pluto and the New Moon all activate your sign and you’re keen to contribute your money, time or talents to a worthy cause. But Saturn (your power planet) saps confidence on Wednesday, when your energy is curbed and others criticise your performance in some way. Plenty of patience will see you through. So your motto for the moment is from philosopher Aristotle “Patience is bitter but its fruit is sweet.”
With four planets (including the New Moon) highlighting your humanitarian zone, it’s time to step up and give back. So your motto for the week is from birthday great Muhammad Ali, “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” You also require plenty of rest and privacy, as you enjoy some special solo time. Solitude is
soul food for you at the moment so activities like meditation, contemplation, yoga and journal writing are all favoured.
Your involvement with a group, class, club or organisation has other people looking to you for extra inspiration. So use your networking skills to drum up support, and don’t be afraid to ask others for assistance when you need it. The more energy you put into helping others, the more smoothly the week will progress. Your motto for the moment is
from birthday great Martin Luther King. “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”
