Monthly Horoscope for August 2014 by Cathy Stronach

Aries
August is all about spreading your wings, to be daring and launch yourself into an adventure.  If in a relationship this month proves a time to get closer and rekindle the flame, if single there will be opportunities for falling in love as others will be attracted to your enthusiastic and energetic presence.  There is an increased chance to enjoy yourself and to live life to the full.  In the first part of August family will play an important role and you could find yourself playing referee in a family dispute.  Towards the end of August a relationship will be put to the test and this will allow you to sort out the real world from the dream world. 

Taurus
Keeping things running smoothly within your domestic life will take up a lot of your time up till 23rd.  Relationships need structuring and there will be obligations and changes to the foundations of your life that will need attention, however, once these are sorted out, the pathway clears and opens up before you to reveal a calmer and yet exciting vision for the future.  This month will have its tense moments as it is pushing you to clarify your intentions in your private life.  There will also be an option in business for starting to nurture a project that is close to your heart. 

Gemini
Your daily life has been demanding for a while and throughout August the picture does not change that much, there will be little time to allow yourself to be distracted from focusing on your goals.  Managing your affairs and finances will take president and charting a course for the future to ensure that you can navigate to avoid the possible stormy seas will be in the forefront of your mind.  Partners may be feeling neglected so make sure that you make some quality time for loved ones and look at what you do have in your life, remembering that the grass is not always greener on the other side. 

Cancer
Saturn is still weighing over your love life encouraging you to face fundamental issues, limitations and the measures that need to be taken to enable you to breathe more freely and live more in line with your needs and desires.  This month, however, finds you in a light hearted mood which others may misinterpret if they dare to think you have lost your hidden depth, this can work to your advantage as it will allow others to be more relaxed in your company and they will reveal their intentions quickly.  Cooperation is the key to success this August and you will be rediscovering your confidence in yourself and your partner.

Leo
Your charisma and energy levels will be receive a welcome boost for the first part of August; it may not be enough to breathe life into a stagnating relationship though.  You may prefer to withdraw from the scene as you think back towards memories of the past.  After 12th August this interim period finds its own level and passions are reformed as you rediscover your taste for seduction and love.  August give you the legs to rediscover your popularity, enthral your imagination and experience success.  Try not to judge others too harshly it is better to take the sensitive approach to any situation.  There could be feelings of doubts as you will be asking yourself fundamental questions, you with the current Leo and see where the tide takes you.

Virgo
Until 23rd August your life will not always feel like your own, there will be commitments, challenges and hard work that needs to be done for you to align yourself with your aspirations and goals.  After this date it would be a good time to retire from that scene and have a holiday or a change of scenery in order to relax down while you wait for the harvest.   Towards the end of August you will be reflecting on things, if you have any doubts that may temporarily darken your thoughts then do not indulge them, keep positive but bear them in mind and always questions your motive.  Friends will play a supportive role this month.

Libra
A social butterfly that flits around from one gathering to the next using your charm and encouraging nature to influence those around you.  You will exert your powers of attraction to boost your business affairs and further your status, getting your message across smoothly to those in high places. Status and furthering your plans is top priority for you rather than maintaining existing relationships.  After 12th August travel will be on your mind although you will probably prefer to travel within a group.  This is a month for battling away at business and career concerns just keep your partner’s needs in mind and use a spirit of compromise so that they do not feel too neglected.

Scorpio
Getting your relationships on track and heading in the right direction is everything at the start of the month, you will be aiming for harmony and progress.  In other areas you will be on the ball and woe betide anyone that tries to stand in your way or upset you as you will not hesitate to take control and exercise your will.  There may be certain expectations that you will feel pressure on you to meet and I suspect you will be weighing this up as to which commitments you feel ready for and those that can wait a while longer.  Watch out for the green eyed monster within towards the end of August things may not be as they first appear.

Sagittarius
There is a drive and a wish for change, a desire to do something new and in an innovative way.  Until 23rd you will be pushing back a few boundaries so that your key relationships can move forward.  Having said this think carefully before making an uncalculated plunge into the unknown, this is not a time for risk taking or acting on impulse.  Anxieties that are linked to memories that you will chew over, releasing repressed anger which could resurface as a result are likely to occur at this time and none of which will give you very good advice.  Take your time do not react under a misunderstanding.  Your life will open up shortly you just need to confront a few issues to allow it to happen.
Capricorn
Financially these are worrying times for you right now and you will be focused upon looking at the finances, making investments or paying off debts.  Changes in the daily financial routine are likely to occur and this can have a knock on effect to your lifestyle.  All will be resolved by 23rd and you will re-establish a balance.  If there have been things left unsaid after 12th you will be inviting your partner to share and open up, you will make the first move if there has been conflict and hold out the olive branch.  You will be giving your dreams full reign this August and it is your intention to review your mission in life and undergo a complete transformation.   Do not be too tempted to speed things up before they are ready to be accepted by those who mean a lot to you.

Aquarius
Until 12th August, you may have difficulty in extracting yourself from your obligations or the demands of your boss, who will know how to play you and get the most out of you by some form of manipulation.  When it comes to love you are more cautious at the moment and will not look upon this part of your life with the same light heartedness you used to.  Around 18th a relationship may become more intense and you could decide to live together or make a casual encounter more permanent.  This is a month divided by emotional commitments and a potential rift in your working life which will take a lot of your energy levels to tackle.   Stay on your chosen path and take one day as it comes, spread the feeling of pressure by living in the moment instead of thinking of the future.


Pisces
You will find it hard to get away completely from a demanding everyday existence, which will seem to want to keep your nose to the grind. The Sun will boost and protect your activities on all fronts, favouring your promotion, recognition or establishment of an activity which requires your full involvement.  There could be setbacks or apprehension that will effectively disrupt your plans but this will only aid in helping you to think twice about a chosen course and weigh things up more objectively.   This is a hard working month and can have its frustrations entangled within it.  You have the ability to pull things off and forget the tension that is weaving its way around you.

There is a greater need for love and closeness this month, family interactions are important along with a balance of fun and friendships.   All in all, July 2014 will be splendid for promoting your image, for relationships with bosses and/or authorities, for success and recognition.  Things are likely to work out by themselves without much effort on your part, accomplishments come easier and you will receive cooperation from others to aid you on your chosen journey.  Towards the end of July make sure that you get adequate rest and do not burn yourself out by too much activity.

Libra
It is all about relationships this month and you will be working hard to create harmony within an existing partnership, towards the end of July relationships will be finding a new level, the pressure will drop and it will be easier to relate to each other with more consideration.  However, this is a period of accomplishments, especially from cultural activities connected to trips or travel.  Popularity in the professional arena is likely and you could find support from unlikely sources.  After 28th you will find it easier to present your projects to others and come across as a confident and intelligent speaker.

Scorpio
Life seems to be getting better and better for you this month and it continues to improve.  The thing that makes it so good is your relationships with others. Whether you are moving around with strangers, chatting with friends or collaborating with others, the very interaction and mutual warmth is food for your soul.  On July 19th 2014 Venus moves into your house of higher education and long-distance love whilst cherishing intellectual and spiritual communion.  This is a good time for research, travel or getting pen on paper and writing and you could find an interest or hobby connected with a different culture.

Sagittarius
Sometimes you have to give yourself a break, restricting yourself too much is not healthy long term for a free spirit like you, so instead focus on recharging your batteries.  This is a good time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life.  The first part of July 2014 could become excellent for spending time together with a loved one or for meeting someone you might share your life with.  It is possible that you may receive a proposition for collaboration; relations with the public and clients will be good and profitable.  By late July gifts or circumstances may occur that will help you recuperate something or regain some rights of yours.

Capricorn
This is a time to be creative in your work and at the same time consolidate your relationships with those that you work with.  On the personal front you probably hoped life had calmed down but just as it seems that way, it speeds up particularly for this month.  You may find it hard to de-stress particularly at home, there always seems to be something happening and most of the time the interruptions are unexpected.   Time spent with nature and enjoying the peace and tranquillity give you a sense of revitalisation.  When contemplating on a health issue the answers are probably right in front of you, space and time spent recharging your batteries will allow you to solve the puzzle. 

Aquarius
Expect the unexpected, especially when it comes to phone calls, messages, emails and unannounced guests.  This is likely to be quite a social time even if you have nothing at all planned in.   You may find that you are more sensitive and receptive to external stimuli and this can give your relationship a boost as a more sensual you comes forward this month.   People will be attracted to you and flock to see you perform so if you have something to show off then now is the time.  You could also assume the role or position of leader and have to deal with organising and taking charge of a situation to make sure it runs smoothly.


Pisces
You have a strong tendency this July to absorb everything like a sponge and may be more influenced than you realise by the people you move with.  This is why it helps to focus on the positive rather than anything that might be too intense or negative.  July, however, has the potential to be the month of enjoyment, a feast for the body and soul.  Work will not seem like work this month and you will be able to self-promote quite easily.  You could find that you have a lot of physical energy and enthusiasm for physical activities, just be careful not to overdo it all straight away and take the time to increase your stamina gently.

Monthly Horoscope for June 2014

Aries
June is the month of the unexpected, things that surprise you, that you could never have imagined would occur – do.  Situations will be created that will enable you to speed up the course of your plans.  Be careful not to be too demanding with a loved one, your impatience may get to someone close, they will need more time than you to come to terms with something.  Collaborations will prove to be profitable.  If it seems towards the end of June that nothing is moving as fast as you would like, then have patience, solutions will be found and the end result will be more satisfying than you could have imagined.

Taurus
If you are looking for new opportunities or a new job then this month there will be a chance for expansion – a promotion or profitable long term change could be on the cards. It is not all down to luck but it does play its part and fortunately for you Jupiter is shining down on you right now.  A love relationship is set to flourish and you may think of making it a more permanent feature in your life.  Mutual understanding seems easy in June, even if you are unattached; there are contacts that enter your life that could prove to be extremely interesting.

Gemini
Keep those expectations within the realms of ‘normal’ and you will not be disappointed particularly when it comes to money issues.  This is because tension and stress seem to be involved when this subject is under scrutiny.  Family and the material side of your life are your main focus, especially the younger generation, whom you will find that you share a unique affinity with.   By 18th June if you are dealing with contracts make sure you double check the facts and figures as you could be a bit absent minded in the last two weeks of this month. 

Cancer
On the monetary front June will allow you to get on with the things that you have wanted to for so long, especially if you have put the effort in over the previous two months, positive and productive days are ahead.  There could be news of a change on the horizon and socially this will be a time of fun and pulling together with those of similar goals.  On the relationship front your partner is finding a new level of relating to you that matches your ideals, allowing you to feel more content.

Leo
Take your time when making decisions this month especially around 24th June as impulsive moves on your part could end up being hard to reverse.  You could find yourself attracted to someone who you look up to in some way or who has a high social status, these friendships could work wonders for your own personal advancement.  Your ambitions are likely to become a bit more daring particularly within your career.  Make sure you get adequate rest this month as you have had a tendency for overdoing it lately and some indulgences may have taken a toll.

Virgo
A change in the usual routine is on the cards and you will welcome the variety that now enters your life.  Your daily existence has been given a breath of fresh air and your love life is heating up, becoming warmer and sensual. This is a time of re-balance, allowing your body to get adequate recuperation, to put your relationships back on track so that they bring even more stability and satisfaction.  Where you life has recently known extremes, this month is all about bringing it all into harmony.

Libra
We see a bold courageous Libra this month and normally you are so tactful and diplomatic, this is likely to surprise those close to you.  Unexpected situations could arise especially within your love life; however, you will also be exerting yourself and are far more confident in this area.  Your family and close friends become extremely important to you and perhaps you learn to open up and put more trust their way.  This is a month for seeing yourself with more clarity realising what is important to you.

Scorpio
Special attention will be coming from you towards someone you love and you will feel compelled to take the time to enhance this area of your life, this influence will continue throughout most of June until about 23rd.  Your finances will receive a boost and you will feel as though you have more freedom to use your money as you wish.  The worries of the past few months will slowly be receding and from 24th June you will be changing your lifestyle considerably to reflect your changing personality and inner drives.

Sagittarius
Up until the 17th June it is time to focus on your own requirements and needs, this still means keeping up commitments to others but putting your own wants first in line with your specific goals.  From 25th June the motion changes and someone close to you will need some support and you may have to put some of your plans on the back burner.  It is up to you at that time to keep an eager eye on the long term goal and not be put off or dissuaded in any way from achieving that which you know will be a success.

Capricorn
Your skills of observation have become heightened this month and this will allow you to use your sharpness of mind and disciplined approach to make things happen.  You have great insight to move ahead and can see what needs to be done long before those around you.  When it comes to relationships keep the communication lines of honesty well open and make the time to get things off your chest if you need to – it will bring you both closer together in the long run. 

Aquarius
There could be the possibility of meeting someone special this June; the chance of flirtatious encounters is high leading to romantic and sensual liaisons.  This is a month of frivolous fun and enjoyment where you can let your hair down without too much worry of tomorrow.  There is an infectious optimism about you that is awakening your thirst for life and giving an appealing factor for those in your company.  Be spontaneous and you will enjoy being able to go with the flow, this will enhance your creativity and inspire your mind. 


Pisces
The beginning of June could bring a few tensions within your family circle, making you feel a need to be somewhere else.  However, this is a good period for mending things and negotiating contracts, even DIY will be easier at this point.  Your personal life is more poignant than your career right now.  It is possible that you will work from home and will need the support of a family member to assist your new role.  By mid June you will be craving some space to allow a bit of peace and harmony to flood in and help rebalance your emotions.

HOROSCOPES FOR 26TH FEBRUARY 2014

ARIES
This is an emotional time for you when you are likely to be far more receptive and sensitive to atmospheres and environmental changes.  Small things can trigger memories that can start a chain reaction of feelings within.  You will need more ‘you’ time this week so make sure that you give yourself some space to recharge.  In some areas patience is the key so do not give up at the first hurdle, perhaps the time is not quite right but soon it maybe.

TAURUS
You may be surprised this week as different routes start to appear that you can now consider and although you had your heart set on one way of moving forward it does not hurt to have a plan b.  A lot more will be revealed as the week progresses, someone you are close to could step in and help you take something to another level.  By combining skills you are able to take this further than you ever could going it alone.

GEMINI
Keep the approach original and unpredictable and you can’t go wrong this week, this is not the time to keep quiet, but to speak out directly the ‘truth’ as you see it.  Your intuition is spot on and serving you well right now and you have no problem in questioning authority to find answers.  Your sharp mind will let you know what you need to sort out with another and your keen observations will allow you to get there.

CANCER
Sometimes it comes to a point where you can’t fight everyone’s battles for them and you realise that you do not have to fight all confrontations and things that appear like battles in your own life either.  Some things you can just let go of as they are just not worth the energy it would take for the response you would get in return.  However, nurture the things that hold the most meaning for you and they will nurture you back tenfold.

LEO
It is time to set things straight, catch your breath and take the time to think things through.  You are finding your way through the latest maze but this time you are doing it with the experience of having been in a similar situation before.  Once something triggers that enthusiastic energy within you- there is no stopping you and nothing can steer you off course, especially if it comes from your heart.  Listen to your inner voice and charge forth.

VIRGO
A bridge that is broken has been playing on your mind and you will feel compelled to take steps to repair and rebuild that link.  Perhaps it is time to clear the air and start afresh.  It becomes obvious this week as to who loves you for who you are and those who love being with you purely for what you can give them.  Some honest exchanges are perhaps on the cards so that a stronger relationship can exist in the future.

LIBRA
At the moment these are poignant days for you, there is so much going on and major issues are up for consideration and need you to take some kind of action.   The areas you need to progress and move things on will become obvious and you will have some kind of external pressure for you to take positive steps towards achieving what needs to be done.  Others are watching you right now and your reputation is also in the limelight.

SCORPIO
If only you were aware of your own power you would understand how others react to your magnetic energy.  You feel things with far more intensity than some of the other signs and this brings far more depth and power to any present moment because of the weight behind it.  This week though what you really need is a good laugh and having some light hearted fun will do you the world of good. By the weekend the weight of a responsibility you have been shouldering eases.

SAGITARRIUS
You are likely to be slightly wired this week and any hint of unpredictability can seem to rock your boat far easier than usual.  Even though you are one of the social signs of the zodiac, you too need an element of time alone to ponder and contemplate where things are going and what it is you really want in it all.  The unknown, the unexplored, these issues can be asking you to question just how much you wish to embrace, when the home fires are calling you.

CAPRICORN
The ‘builder knoweth best’ and this line applies to you -  right now is all about building on what you have achieved in the past and also building for the future.  One step at a time will get you there, slowly, cautiously but accurately and definite as you place each foot firmly in front of each other on the climb up the mountain.  As each foot is done with such surety there is little that will be able to rock you from your spot.  Help from a trusted friend will be welcomed.

 AQUARIUS
Many times you have been known as the objective one, the one that does not get emotionally involved and uses their wit and mental pace to navigate through stormy waters.  Your apparent objectivity and detachment, however, is a natural defence mechanism that prevents you from getting hurt.  This week you are being asked to take an emotional risk, surrender and slip into those waters of feeling, there is an opportunity to deepen a connection with another. 


PISCES
There is some emotional relief coming your way, something that has been causing you great worry may soon be water under the bridge; soon an event occurs to calm the waters of concern.  Your faith is restored in humanity and an old friend or connection could surprise you with a loving gesture of support.  This is a period of sifting out, sorting out and figuring out, so be open to see another side of someone, a change of attitude may be a pleasant surprise.

Thursday, 20 February 2014

HOROSCOPES FOR 19TH FEBRUARY 2014

ARIES
You are in the spotlight this week so expect to receive some sort of recognition coming your way particularly in your career arena.  A good thing to remember is that you probably didn’t get there on your own, no man is an island and through your interaction with others and their input – this has made you what you are today.  You may hear from old friends or past partners and this can make you behave in a spontaneous and impulsive manner.

TAURUS
There could be a second chance for a position on the work front that you thought was long dead and gone as there is a productive influence that is asserting itself upon you.  This is a great window of opportunity to clear the air and clear your name knowing you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.  You have a social grace this week for connecting with others, well able to relate to all levels.  Your challenge, however, is to rise above the temptation of taking sides.

GEMINI
There is a trail that you are following, a puzzle that needs unravelling and the signs that are coming your way are the goalposts to realising the truth of this mystery.   Remain open to the unconventional and the radical as this could open up areas that were previously tightly closed.  Believe in yourself and your abilities and get rid of the doubt that keeps trying to agitate you from the depths.  Your vast knowledge and experiences will bring you the freedom you have been seeking.

CANCER
This week is all about deepening your connections with others and to make a clean and clear influence on your close connections.  Passion is starting to stir from within again and this will allow you to muster up the courage you need to confront issues that thrust up before you.  Major changes are in the wings and it is important to consider the long term effect of your current actions.  Seek out creative solutions now in preparation for the future.

LEO
Perhaps it is time to get off the garden fence and make a key decision, sitting in that position is ok for a while until you know truly what you want, but after a while you can become too comfortable and stagnation occurs - or you could lose the very thing you are worried about committing too.  It is time to turn a corner and have the courage to take charge, communication is the key, open up and by doing this your position may become clear.

VIRGO
You are on the tip of everyone’s tongues at the moment as your surge in popularity and position has sky rocketed.   Challenges are likely to occur but none that are unsolvable if you tackle them with a little thought and tact.   Your insight for seeing the truth in situations now is stark and even if others are having problems seeing the wood for the trees it is you that can sort it all out and make some sort of sense.  You are no longer the shrinking violet but the bell of the ball.

LIBRA
When your relationships work, life works and for you this is everything.  Just don’t rely too much on the promises of others right now as more can be happening than you are aware of and perhaps they have the right intentions but things are getting in the way of delivery.   Some parts of your old life will feel as though they just do not fit with you anymore and the only thing you can do is take the time to sift through what is working and what is dragging you down and then begin the process of de-cluttering.

SCORPIO
This is a contemplative time to look inspiring at your future and the array of promising possibilities that lay before you.  Now, however, you are looking at it from a foundation that is so strong and firm that nothing can rock your boat.  You have put the hard work in and now it is time to breathe a sigh of relief.  Nothing is impossible anymore, although you will still have to exercise a bit of patience when going after what you want.

SAGITARRIUS
It is all about justice for you right now, you are seeing so many injustices happen around you that you are likely to be fired up and raring to stand up for the underdog.   Your words and your ability to deliver will be so spot on that they will direct themselves at the heart and make the necessary impact.  Connections will be repaired and the air will be cleared.  In one area you may not have all the answers yet, so take your time and slowly but surely you will get there.

CAPRICORN
The fruits of your labour are in full bloom and your earning power is likely to increase.  There may be many opportunities coming your way and you will have to consider the impact this will have on others.   You will aim to do the right things because you can.  Break things down and look at the cause and effect of each action or non action and then devise a plan (which you are great at doing) that focuses on the future.

AQUARIUS
You may feel let down or in some extreme cases betrayed by someone you thought you could trust but this time you have something new at your disposal – leverage, some information you discover will give you the upper hand and help turn things around to your advantage.  Be sure you know what effect your words and actions will have upon others before you take action, when you speak, your blade of truth, can cut deep to the point - someone close may need a softer delivery this week.

PISCES
Something or someone could have been trying to put a twist to your plans, at first it could seem like a real annoyance but every cloud has a silver lining and it could turn out to be more opportunistic than you first realise.  You are in store for a good surprise, no longer are you allowed to float around in the background, your power and influence upon others will shift you into a new gear.  You are the voice of reason right now and others are waiting to hear your call.


Saturday, 8 February 2014

HOROSCOPES FOR 5TH FEBRUARY 2014

ARIES
Relationships with colleagues prove challenging this week and the art of diplomacy and tact need to be deployed when dealing with superiors.  Your patience could be tested as you wish for everything to be done and sorted out straight away; however, you still have to wait a bit longer for the universe to catch up with you.  Benefits can be found in paying attention to the details, doing the groundwork and slowing down – it won’t be for long. 

TAURUS
A real and lasting opportunity for inner transformation is occurring at the moment.  You are being shown various things that can bring you clarity with a situation you have in the past found yourself stalling or procrastinating.  It is time to get rid of the things that have no value to you now and draw a line underneath it all.  Insights are coming thick and fast, a mystery is solved and the steep climb to the top of the mountain ensures a nicer vista once you get there. 

GEMINI
Compassionate moments bring an increased sensitivity and you start to see a side of others that you were unaware was there.  It could be hard to concentrate at times and your mind could go wandering off occasionally and to others it would appear that you were literally in your own world.  You could find that you are more reactive to the effects of alcohol and any medication right now.  Make sure you give yourself enough space and room to breathe this week. 

CANCER
Females play an important role in your life this week and through an acquaintance you will reap the benefits in some way.    Relationships come to the fore and a close partnership will be tested, intense feelings will either turn to jealousy or to transformation, a hint of reality highlights the bond between you both and it either turns into a commitment or it could finish.  Either way it is the force of reality that neither party can escape from.

LEO
It is all about your root foundations and getting them sorted out once and for all.  In your heart you long for a place to call home and this week is all about deciding where that is or how to make your current abode homely and a reflection of you.  Perhaps you will pick up the trowel or the decorating tools or even start house hunting.  Family may need some sort of support at this time and this may prompt you to get involved and help them out. 

VIRGO
This is a chilled out time, the calm after the storm, I expect you have been pushing yourself to the limit and now the pressure is off and you can enjoy some fun and leisure time to recharge your batteries.  Opportunities and invites are likely to come your way and with a little effort on your part you can capitalise on the beneficial energy that is flooding towards you.  Give yourself a little pampering Virgo – you deserve it.

LIBRA
With Mars still very active in your sign this is giving you the impetus and drive to get things moving, you could literally move mountains with this rocket of energy sizzling away inside of you.  Nothing is impossible right now as long as you direct this force into something that takes energy or needs doing you can achieve so much.  On the other hand you could find that you are a little touchy within a relationship and you may need to think before speaking so you don’t land yourself in hot water. 

SCORPIO
You feel you know where you are at and have got to the point where you are quite comfortable with your surroundings and routine.  In fact you do not want things to change, you like your life at the moment, however, this week expect something unexpected and try not to let it ruffle your feathers too much.  The one thing in life that is constant is change and not all change is disruptive but instead can add another colour to your palette. 

SAGITARRIUS
You are wound up like a coil lately, pushing against what seems to be an almighty rock that you just can’t move out of the way.  The key to this week is to find another way, think outside of the box, do not be afraid to try new things, pioneer your journey out of the situation.  If you are pushing then stop, change tactic.  Friends and acquaintances prove very helpful right now, so networking will reap rewards and get you back on track. 

CAPRICORN
There is light at the end of a tunnel, happiness at the end of the rainbow.  An intense situation is coming to an end and you will want to build bridges and put into place a support structure for the future.  Connections and emotional bonds with family develop and you find a new level of communicating with each other that is easier and productive.   Things that were hidden now come to the fore and it is easier to see the truth.

AQUARIUS
A change is as good as a rest and for you there is no greater fact than that this week.  A break away or a holiday or even a change in routine will be like a breath of fresh air and will blow the cobwebs away allowing you to look at your life and its challenges with a new perspective.  You are likely to be more sensitive to atmospheres right now and can pick up on under currents, your radar is right on track.


PISCES
Old wounds have a chance of healing; this is a beneficial time for you, when all seems to flow.  You are in the right current, in the right river and heading in the right direction with nature.  The things that are usually a struggle seem to be easier and all starts to fit into place.  Your intuition is spot on and this enables you to navigate your way through the residue, the after effects of an old storm.  Interacting with those that are special in your life brings rewards.

HOROSCOPES FOR WEDNESDAY 22ND JANUARY 2014


ARIES
An emotional exchange with someone who helps you get to the other side of a worry will materialise this week and you will come up with a clever solution that is far from a pipe dream but a realistic and desirable way forward. By the weekend, you will not only experience a new found trust in this current process, but you will feel yourself on the right track once again.  It is all about not letting your emotions stop you from keeping your head.  Nice and easy does it every time.

TAURUS
It is time for a change, only a small one is needed but you now need to adjust yourself to your environment.  Things are not as they were and by making adjustments, before you feel as though you are stretching yourself too thin, will save a lot of hassle later.  Defending your truth within a close relationship may be an issue as someone may doubt your word and integrity.  Perhaps a little reassurance is needed.

GEMINI
Money and resources are on your mind; you will be working hard this week to forge a plan to balance your books in order to give yourself the best chance, finding that through this focus you discover an ingenious way forward.  Personal temptations are all around you and if you can raise yourself above it all, including the many distractions, then this can prove to be a real turning point for you. 

CANCER
There may have been something you have been putting up with for a good long time and you are ready to take back the reins and direct your life in ways that better support your essential needs. It has taken things to become out of balance for you to see that adjustment is needed.  This is a point where no compromises can be made if they impact your essential needs.  In fact you could be taken out of your usual comfort zone to enable you to see things from a different perspective.

LEO
Many of the vulnerable parts of you could feel exposed this week, however, understanding what makes you feel vulnerable and the reasons why can help to make you feel stronger.  By the weekend your heart will be given a lift and someone new will help you to remove a belief pattern that has become worn out and doesn’t serve you any longer.  You will find it very easy to express how you really feel about someone because of this.

VIRGO
It could be hard for you to find the right words this week and when you do think you are there the delivery is probably going to be tinged with emotion and will not come out exactly how you had planned.  Others in turn may also not be revealing their true feelings and motivations.  It can be a confusing time, therefore, give others the space and time they need to work it all out for themselves and you will discover that they care more than you think.

LIBRA
Are we a bit edgy this week Libra?  Impatience, restlessness with a desire to get things moving is driving you.  It is likely that you will find yourself taking centre stage in a debate or key meeting.  You may need to convince another to get back on board with your ideas.  Soon you will realize that however frustrating this time feels the delays will in the end somehow work to your advantage.  Do not overlook the detail. 

SCORPIO
Others will likely be looking to you for the answers, there could be a problem that mystifies those around, and you are their hope. These are creative weeks and as you have the ability to not only think outside of the box you also have the ability to hone right in on what the actual issue is.  Your powers of concentration are second to none right now.  However, be flexible and open to new ideas and directions.  

SAGITTARIUS
What a social time this is for you, it would be nearly impossible for others to encounter you and not remember who you are, your natural charisma is unforgettable.  Extra attention is coming your way and you will find it quite flattering and this makes it easy to give in to temptation.  Even if you are just playing be aware that others may take you seriously.  Your home life brings rewards too and any improvement you do in that area brings inner contentment.

CAPRICORN
This is a perfect time to get on top of things and make plans for the future.  Your powers of concentration and focus are intense and strong.  The pace of life at the moment is extremely fast with a lot happening, therefore, you may find it difficult to keep up and forget to relay messages on the communication side - information overload.  Friendships are vital for your success and a bit of delegation wouldn’t go amiss. 

AQUARIUS
Pay closer attention to your health this week as old emotional wounds could bring you a bit of discomfort until you deal with them or lay them to rest.  You are where you need to be and very shortly you are likely to meet a key person that will play a big role in your future.  Slow down and take your time then the emotional and mental conflicts will reside, get things done right even if you feel you are too slow.  There is not as much urgency as you think.


PISCES
For the dream that you envisioned to become possible you know that some key things in your life will have to change and not everyone will be able to join you. Generally there is a lot of stresses and strains around now so rest and relaxation is a must, keep a low profile and take care of tasks that need to be completed.  Keep problems in perspective so that you ensure you get the well needed rest you require.

HOROSCOPES FOR WEDNESDAY 15TH JANUARY 2014

ARIES
Strangely, you may be feeling unusually serious at the moment, there is much that you wish to put into place and you will be using this week to make plans concrete.  The more you know the clearer you will soon be on how to direct your life this year.  Be very careful with your words and actions as this is not the point to make impulsive decisions but to pay attention to the details and consult with loved ones, especially on the home and career front. 

TAURUS
Right now it is all about getting your foundations operating as you want them.  As long as you are crystal clear on what you need whilst formulating a game plan to make sure you get it what you want.  There is one relationship in your life that you can count on where you feel a solid sense of security and this will also become an area you wish to strengthen. 

GEMINI
Your feelings could be sky high this week full of emotion and inner smoldering passions.  This can have the effect of you becoming impatient and trying to force things into happening too quickly.  Be patient for now but remain positive, it is just that the time is not quite right yet.  Financially it also requires you to exercise some tolerance, give it a week or so and things will work out your way.

CANCER
Moderation is your key to good living and it will become critical that you become clear about what you need to put in place in order for you to maintain balance in your life.  You will be surprised at how others come forward to support your intentions.  Contracts could be up for negotiation and advancements in the world of work could be up for discussion.  There is an air of progression about you. 

LEO
This week is all about you; it is about creating habits that help you instead of hinder.  When you are looking after your needs properly and have a natural creative outlet then you are able to be extremely productive with your life.  It is not about depending on another to feel good; it is about finding what makes you come alive from within and sticking with it.

VIRGO
You have been slightly overwhelmed lately but the truth is you would not trust another to do the job as well as you can do it.  At least you know it will be done right or to your standards and the detail will not be forgotten.  By the weekend you can ease up a little on the workload and give time to affairs of the heart and as you do so a warm security starts to flood over you – very cosy.

LIBRA
Life does not seem under your control right now - it is as if someone else is holding the reigns and steering your destiny.  This influence is now encouraging you to start to think of your own needs, to rely upon yourself more, instead of putting the needs of others before yourself.  You will do so much for love but do not give so much that you lose yourself in it all.

SCORPIO
Getting your goals moving and motivating yourself to write, teach or to go places you have always wanted to visit is highlighted now.  There is nothing in the way to stop you from achieving what you want – only you.  Make the most of every day and this can be a time of remarkable achievements and success.  You have finally been given a green light so that you can move forward with relative ease.

SAGITTARIUS
Financially there is a need perhaps to cut back and slow down on your outgoings.  Tightening your belt and sticking to it could be the theme that is playing on your mind.  By the weekend though there could be significant financial gains in the most unexpected ways.  You will find that talents and abilities rise up to show themselves from within and these will be put to even greater use this year.

CAPRICORN
Whatever you put your energy into right now the universe is likely to give back to you tenfold.  There are those around you that are looking out for you and there will be a sign that this is the case this week.  New beginnings are all around you so keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities.  Keep your feet rooted to the ground and you will remain aware of all that is going on around you.

AQUARIUS
There could be something going on behind the scenes and perhaps there is someone who is working hard to help you, pulling strings on your behalf.  The bigger picture is your focal point and this will help you to remain steady and certain and on track.  The clouds of the past are beginning to clear and as they do a new brilliant, glorious horizon comes into focus. 


PISCES
A change to support the direction that you wish to go in is likely and it will feel liberating to have made a decision.  Important life choices that will radically affect your life for the foreseeable future are on the table.  Each choice will lead you in a very different direction, but each choice is equally as good as the other, so it comes down to what you want the most.

HOROSCOPES FOR WEDNESDAY 8TH JANUARY 2014

ARIES
Tasks and chores will seem easier this week so make the most of this energy to get tedious tasks done.  Allow relationships to take their natural course and go with the flow however unusual it all may seem.  Your romantic life can be electrifying and you will find collaboration with a loved one effortless.  A commitment from you may be forthcoming as you will be looking at making long term plans. 

TAURUS
If you have feelings of doubt building up then you need to ask yourself why?  There is a fabulous opportunity for you to empower yourself and to deepen and heal your relationships; however, you may sabotage this influence through feelings of uncertainty.  With a carefree attitude you can handle most things that come your way and there is an indicator that happiness, pleasure and joy are just around the corner.

GEMINI
Many things have fallen by the wayside for you lately but now it is the moment where you can show that you are serious about your ultimate place on the path.  By spending time on the things that matter to you will allow others to see where your real passions lie.  It may mean that you will be moving in a different direction from others, so the key is not to turn a blind eye to the struggles they face and not to lose sight of your own needs and desires.

CANCER
There is growth to be found this week within all of your committed relationships and unresolved pieces of the past will give you clues on how to progress.   Make sure you are direct and to the point and do not side step issues as you will feel stronger and free for doing so.  Inner talents are waking up and your awareness and observations are spot on.

LEO
This is a time to review what it is you really want and need.  All that was broken in the past can be mended and you are able to gain more balance and meaning in your life.  Emotionally this can feel like an upheaval as your thoughts align with your feelings.  You may want to hibernate for a while until the stormy weather has passed; however, the universe is asking you to take a long hard look as you reach a turning point in your life.

VIRGO
You do not want to have to rely on others like you have in the past and one focus of the moment is to put in place schemes that will enable you to be independent.  The more you get done this week the more rewards you will find.  You could find yourself becoming quite an organizer and being the one that comes up with the positive ideas for change.
  
LIBRA
It takes a lot for you to reach the end of your tether but this week you have arrived at the limit of your tolerance levels with one particular person or situation.  At the moment with the help of Mars you have immense courage and spirit to make your point heard and others will know that you mean business; it is through this new approach that many opportunities can come your way. 

SCORPIO
Putting into place routine and incorporating activities that you enjoy, so that you are able to strike a better balance, is a focus for you right now.   Your creativity and ideas are ready to be set into motion and you will find yourself being swept along so speedily that little things can turn into major accomplishments.

SAGITTARIUS
There may be something that you do not really want to do and this is making you hesitate in an area in which you are normally enthusiastic; in reality you are aware that you have to go through this in order to receive your remuneration.  The key is to relax and keep a cool head - no-one expects you to know all the answers all of the time. 

CAPRICORN
You have the motivation and inherent strength and determination to rise above your current conditions and limitations.  This is an empowering week for you where new beginnings are ready to emerge as you release an emotional restriction that has held you back.   Some relationships may still have a hold over you but it is easier to climb above the chaos.

AQUARIUS
Any possibility is within your grasp, all that went unrewarded in the past is now coming your way, if you felt like you had been forgotten; now you know that you are remembered and feel appreciated.  There has been a lot that you have felt has been out of your control and any feelings of regret are asking to be laid to rest.  Your passions are high and you may feel unusually spontaneous.


PISCES
It is up to you to initiate the new action that you know needs to take place, perhaps you have resisted something for a while and now it is likely that you will be pushed into making a change.  If you trust in taking action on the things that you are clear about and then leave the outcome to reveal itself. Intense passion is welling up from within as your fire is being fuelled, it is going to get hot.

LEO

VIRGO
You begin 2014 feeling slightly overworked and wondering if you have taken on too much but this all begins to fade as January takes hold.  Many of the restrictions that bogged you down in 2013 will leave you and you will find that you have much more personal freedom.  Others will be opening up to you and sharing more of their thoughts and feelings, some will be quite revealing and encourage you to reflect upon your own inner depths.

AQUARIUS
Adventure comes your way and gives you a chance to do the extraordinary.  A change of plan is likely and if you go with the flow you will find that this unpredictable turn of events becomes a voyage of discovery.  A person from the past may get in touch, some unfinished business that needs sorting out but if you meet it with a spirit of compromise much can be achieved. 


PISCES 

Insights are causing you to become much more aware of the real reasons, motivations and actions of others.  This will allow you to invest your energy in the places that support where you are heading versus where you have been.  Foresight is a valuable skill and you will be feeling grounded enough to be able to access this quality.  Unpredictable tides in early 2014 will not throw you off course.
