As Pluto and Venus align for a powerful union, it’s time to focus on finding your inner power.

This partnership is the chance to eliminate anything unnecessary in your life, as Pluto’s main domain is getting rid of baggage.

Venus’ principle governance is the expression of love and emotion, so be unapologetic with your relationships this week, and let people know they’re important to you.

♈ Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

As career opportunities arise, make sure you use your wit and charm to bag the deal.

Be careful to not come across as pushy, as you won’t be taken seriously.

A new direction in life will compel you to make drastic changes to your appearance, so go for it!

♉ Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

As emotion rules this week, be sure to keep your work problems at a distance from your personal affairs.

Be gentle when communicating with loved ones this week, as heavy topics will prompt you to be compassionate.

Be the shoulder your friends and family need to cry on, and the favour will be returned.

♊ Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Your relationships will help you see clearer, as a mutual understanding will lead to individual growth.

Don’t let others be an obstacle in what you hope to achieve this week, as you will be faced with many roadblocks.

Take time for yourself, as overdoing things will see you get burnt out.

♋ Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

While you’re used to being helpful and picking up the slack for others, it’s time to use the power of “no”.

Stop spreading yourself thin when trying to help others.

You also have to worry about your own wellbeing.

♌ Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

You will feel inspired to try something new this week, as therapeutic hobbies can make a world of difference.

Be patient when being your own teacher, because you can’t have everything all at once.

Stay motivated in your side hobbies, and this gumption will trickle into other areas of your life.

♍ Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

Despite your love for structure and routine, it’s time to mix things up.

Look at making big and meaningful changes in your life in order to avoid complacency.

Taking a calculated risk with your finances will pay dividends in the future.

♎ Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

Instead of holding back, it’s time to speak your mind.

Be more assertive to release yourself from your self-imposed social shackles, as people will welcome this new found confidence.

Don’t let others talk down to you.

♏ Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

The urge to be reckless with your finances will be strong this week, but shopping around will pay off in spades.

Recognise your bad habits and self-reflect on how you can improve.

Practice gratitude this week, and realise tangible treasures are fleeting.

♐ Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

One door will close and another will open this week, as it’s time to embrace the next phase of your life.

Moving forward while learning from the past will be spiritually freeing and uplifting.

Manifest and make it happen, Sagittarius. You know what you need to do.

♑ Capricorn (December 22nd – January 20th)

Pay close attention to your relationships this week, as these connections are not just a one way street.

Spend more quality time with your partner, and make sure to tell them how much you care.

It’s time to realise that quality time is more valuable than anything you can buy in a shop.

♒ Aquarius (January 21st – February 18th)

Just because your social life is a busy hive of activity doesn’t mean you have to accept every invitation.

Be wary of your social battery, and take the time to recharge when you need it rather than worrying about missing out.

Self-care time is just as important this week as catching up with old friends.

♓ Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

As your relationships may not seem as fulfilling this week, it’s important to read between the lines and not take everything too personally.

Find new ways to express love and gratitude to those closest to you, as random acts of kindness speak volumes.

Take time out to relax from your recent busy schedule, as as you’ll find the pressure affecting your life.
