Are Climate Change protests about climate or a re-jig of global power structures and elite Capitalism?
Is it Problem-Reaction-Solution or Fire Fire over there?
TAURUS MAN AUGUST 2018
Living with Mr Taurus
If you are in love with a Taurus Man, August will bring some relief if you have been at loggerheads about family related matters. It could be that you have been involved in disagreements about your children or your respective children and how to manage domestic issues from time allocation to where the kids spend weekends i.e. with you and your guy or with your exes. Some sense should now prevail and you may be able to resolve these matters or at least find clever ways to circumvent them.
Home life has not be very relaxing recently, in fact Taurus Man may have had to make many compromises and these have not sat easily with him. If you have recently moved in with Mr Taurus; he could have been rather irritable with the adjustments and you have to admit, even though you love him, he can be very set in his ways and when his little routines and rituals are disturbed to make way for you he gets a tad cranky. However, Mr Taurus is about to find that little part of him that does like to be flexible as he can sense that something new is brewing and it is rather interesting.
Mr Taurus is very curious in August – if you are dating, he will interrogate you as he wants to know what makes you tick. In fact, if you appear to be somewhat complex and confused he will become aroused intellectually as if he needs to get to grips with some of your issues and work them out. You may feel a little uncomfortable as you are put under the spotlight. Taurus Man can however smartly deflect questions aimed at the deep, dark private parts of his life with humour; there are some personal matters he does not want to be drawn on.
Taurus Man enjoys talking, in fact this month he may keep you up talking into the wee small hours as he is in a problem solving analytical frame of mind and there is this need he has to talk things though – he probably does not want feedback, he is thinking aloud and yet he needs you to be there paying attention.
Psychology, Honesty and Change.
The solar eclipse in August has a significant impact on family values and also a Taurean Man’s level of contentment and security. Taureans who find their partners do not offer some level of contentment or who do not contribute to their security (a key concern for Taurus) will find things reach a tipping point. Existing relationships which undermine who Taurus Man is at heart and which no longer reaffirm his independence and core values are certainly in question.
The key question you have to be honest about, if you are in love with Taurus Man, is how does he want you to change and do you want to change? Taurus Man is undergoing psychological changes right now, triggered by the eclipse, and some of these may manifest in him making what may seem as out of character demands and your own patience and tolerance can be tested. Taurus Man is always open to discussion however especially after the 19th of August when Mercury goes direct.
Taurus Man’s attitude to love is more sober and reflective this month with Taurus coming to terms with harsh realities and deeper psychological issues at play – it may be that these issues have come to light as you have both matured and become more savvy and/or just woken up or maybe the relationships is new and you are learning more about each other. Now, the question is, are the issues you see revealing themselves ones which you can deal with, are they worth dealing with, and do you want to deal with them?
Taurus Men are quite malleable right now – no matter what it looks like on the surface, he is open to your input and he is emotionally open to suggestions which can enhance your life as a couple and perhaps set some new precedents. By setting new precedents, I mean getting rid of relationships rules, like, “We don’t do that,” “that is not for us”, “we don’t do it that way,” etc.; do you still need these parameters, are the not holding you back?
In new and existing relationships you and Taurus Man must define yourselves as a couple and not be defined by anything or anyone else and so friends or family who seek to undermine the relationship or throw their penny’s worth in have to be given the cold shoulder.
Romance and Dating
Taurus Men are projecting a more mysterious persona, and they are attracted to people who seem to be in a journey. They are curious to know what you want from life and the more ideas and aspirations you have the more interested in you they become.
In dating, you and Taurus Man may be holding cocktail parties or entertaining at your home or at one of your respective homes. You may attend literary events or, if you have not yet met you may meet at a literary event, book launch or a recital. It is a month where Taurus is more involved with his family and so you may even be attending a wedding or milestone party with his family.
Taurus Man could be involved in prompting local tourism and if you are dating, one of your trips may be to a local museum or tourist spot where he tells you all the little secrets of his town’s past. Taurus Man may be more interested in history and culture right now and your dates may reflect that.
With the ruler of Virgo and thus Taurus Man’s 5th house retrograde until the 19th of August. Romantic affairs are subject to misunderstandings and miscommunications. He may get a time or date wrong or one of you could be caught in traffic or lose his cell phone; I know it is hard these days with so many communication avenues like WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat etc. to have any excuse not to communicate, however Mercury retrograde is still cunning enough to engineer a communication glipse which can make you question whether you have been stood up. So, be patient and do not jump to the worst conclusion, give him at least a few minutes to make his excuses when he does get back in touch.
Taurus Man has a hearty sense of humour but there are times when he cracks one too far and it can grate on you, so perhaps overlook a little insensitivity it probably sounded good when he thought of it in his head even if it turned into a lead balloon soon after.
You best dates tend to be spontaneous affairs rather that heavily orchestrated ones and so best to meet up and let the evening take you by the scruff of the necks rather than trying to stick to a pre-arranged schedule or have expectations of anything highly specific.
Taurus Man can be a little suspicious in August, and he reads the worst into many situations, not just in connection with romance but in general; a little habit you must take control of. Be honest and direct with him as if you are vague he will probably let his imagination run wild with some misinterpretations. Some of his mistrust is to do with insecurity issues which have roots deep in his subconscious rather than in reality.
Many relationships that start now will have a strong karmic bond – you may have met in a past life, and you may have extraordinarily acute ESP together.
If you and Taurus Man have set up home together and you may well be doing that right now as there is much action in the realm of Taurus’ domestic life, your attention may be drawn to issues around your home from repairs to improvements to discussions with your landlord or committee about rights and responsibilities. You may both move from a flat to a house and have more freedom in your home to do as you wish.
Taurus Man could be called to make decisions about their parents; he may have to assume the head of family role and take responsibility for some far reaching decisions.
As Mercury is retrograde until the 19th of August, any decision Taurus Man makes or anything he says before that time may not be set in stone and could be subject to change. As all signs are influenced by the vagaries of Mercury retrograde, it is good to avoid making promises, going on important trips and finalising any agreements during that phase.
After mercury goes direct on the 19th of August it will be ideal for any decisions you make in terms of home life; while it is good to have discussions and do research and planning before the 19th the final decision on any matter should be left until after that date.
There is a solar eclipse on the 11th of August and he effect can be a crystallisation of events relating to past relationships for Taurus Man. This eclipse can begin a powerful new phase of growth for him, almost a rites of passage time when he feels he can make some clean breaks with emotional ties or people from his past.
The eclipse also provides the impetus for any changes that are needed psychologically and gives Taurus courage to face up to some home truths – even though he may not admit it, as he is proud and admitting things to himself is often hard enough never mind saying it aloud and so do not go there; know when he is a little wounded and do not rub salt in it.
Taurus Man is not averse to change right now, but he with do the risk evaluation in his head. He tends to be a little funny about money – he wants to pay and he may be a little tense about his misses chipping in or lending. Taurus Man tends to want that traditional role of breadwinner and he is uneasy when you are more financially secure or have that extra bit of cash spare. He may spend on credit or scrimp in private to make sure he can keep up a chivalrous mode of treating you and being the provider. In some cases it can be quite defeating on a psychological level for a Taurus Man to be in an inferior financial position this month and you may want to avoid chatting about your raise or how you got a bonus. Remember Taurus are prone to material jealousy; no matter how they evolve they are always rooted in the material and money and financial achievement retains some significance for them no matter how spiritual or evolved they may seem.
Small insights into his own foibles and motivations can mean big gains in Taurus Man’s personal power and after a period of doubt, an increase in his own security. Look out for the period of doubt, which could result is him being a little needy and talking himself down or complaining – Taurus like a little self-pity in small doses, luckily it does not often last long, it is almost like a type of indulgence.
Taurus Man needs to give himself a shake down; he almost needs a wakeup call where a reality is thrust in his face and he starts to make adjustments. You can help him by not criticising him directly, but by helpfully suggesting how others may criticize him or dismantle his arguments and your perspective on how he would prepare for that. You can almost act like his coach, which works a lot better than being blunt like and Arian or Sagittarians may be and telling him just what you think no holds barred.
Taurus Man understands himself a lot better this month, although this process happens over the month and you may be able to observe it if you know him well; if you have just met him he may confuse you and give out so many mixed messages you may feel the relationship is like an emotional lucky dip.
Taurus Man tends to put himself through the mill this month and it may be very intense being with him: that is why you need to have time with your family and your friends as you can get sucked into his issues and his moods where whatever he is going through takes over your life. Taurus Man can be a distraction this month and you need to have a free headspace where you can just re-centre yourself and not lose touch which who you are, what you need and what your focus in life should be. Taurus Man should be part of your life in August 2018 as it may not be that healthy for you if he is all of your life.
Good sex is about understanding yourselves better and recognising certain gut reactions to things which are either useful or not – it is a good time to analyse, understand and change these unhelpful and often self-destructive reflex emotional reactions.
Sex life can always be improved and yet you both cannot escape the influence your upbringing had on making some aspects of sex or intimacy difficult and you may never be able to fully eradicate or shut these influences out. It is vital now to accept any limitations and decide to work within them, rather than raging against them which may be taking too much energy and creating too much stress. Once stress sets in, confidence and the ability to get those improvements can go out the window.
As a couple you should have a wider definition of what good sex is – good sex can be the orgasm, something naughty or forbidden, something that makes you feel loved, something relaxing, something that feels like escapism etc. In August good sex has to be preceded by the sense of deep understanding; if Taurus Man feel you do not know him, do not care to know him deeply or are no that bothered about the deeper aspects of his emotional life he can be wooden in love. The more you show compassion the better sex life is.
Sex with Taurus this month also has to be about deep relaxation and so massages, foot massages, Indian Head massage and any relaxation technique even meditation, if you both enjoy that, before sex or as foreplay is very helpful.
Sex also needs a sense of adventure in August and so perhaps new locations, sex outdoors or a very unusual holiday or trip could get the juices flowing.
The moon waxes between the 11th and 26th making these the best times for new starts and enterprise. These dates apply to all star signs and so they represent a green light phase for new activities, although the dates 19th to 26th are even better as Mercury is direct as well. So, in terms of your communications, any joint contractual arrangements you have, logistics, local travel or buying and selling etc. wait until after the 19th for Mercury to go direct. The waxing period as just stated is ideal for progressive and ground-breaking goals, and there can be success within mathematics, economics, or philosophy (i.e., social sciences) – which could be relevant if you and Taurus Man work in banking, economic analyses and research or academia. This is also an ideal period for collaboration with others on artistic (especially music and fine art) projects and humanitarian goals; and so you and Taurus Man may want to increase your involvement with or expand your networks as related to the music, theatre or art world.
Love – This is not a time when Aries are impulsive in love; you want to hold onto your heart and keep emotions in check and you are more reticent or even sceptical about love opportunities.
Career – Creative work gets a boost, especially where Aries work with their hands to fashion products or work with machinery. You should also take care to check your bank balance as if you do not keep up to date with daily changes you may not catch a security breach or cyber theft fast enough.
Health – Remember that what you have on your fork may have more to do with your health future than what is written on your prescription; so take control by taking more notice about what is on your fork.
Love – Taurus are doing extra work in their intimate relationships – yes, you want great things, but you also know that hard work and creativity are needed to keep romance alive and maintain that spark that makes everything worthwhile
Career – Patience is key, you have to take a wait and see attitude and cannot force the pace. Taurus have to find ways to deal with frustration and even some anger specially when things that should work don’t or don’t work quick enough.
Health – Bad habits that you developed recently are hard to break as you are lazy mentally and will look to take the easy way out where possible; this means you will skip gym and get a take away and think ‘what the heck I deserve it.”
Love – Time for a clear out of your contacts book or your little black book – time get rid of all those people who were all talk no action, those who folded and who just did not form a suitable match but who are still lurking around and possibly keeping a potential good match at bay.
Career – Material goals help provide motivation and so it is helpful to keep in mind an aspirational purchase or something near and dear to you that you wish to spend money on to help create momentum and help you through the tiresome phases of work.
Health – Good health today and in the next few week is about inner ease and so no amount of good food and fitness activity can compensate for a negative internal environment and so let go of bad feeling and do your best to cultivate good vibes inside.
Love – Your clarity of mind right now ideally places you to make sensible and also optimistic plans for your love life and you are able to set achievable social goals that can lead with good probability to lasting life.
Career – This is a good time for making management decisions as information is easy to come by, and it is one of those times things really are black and white. Your judgement is enhanced, and a reputation for, or past experience of, you being just and fair pays off.
Health – Good relationships and good company promote health and so forget the gym and head for the pub or club for a good catch up and a renewal of bonds with old and new friends.
Love – While at times family can bring pressures and create problems in marriages, today the exact opposite happens, and there is a healing quality fostered by family involvement.
Career – A time of checking, editing, and going back over what you have done to ensure plans are watertight and your research and writing are error free.
Health – Restoring your home is very much a theme, and often the restoration or indeed the packing up of things you no longer use to recycle or give away or going through old letters, photos, and souvenirs can be a spur to revisit aspects of your past and capture some of the positivity and naiveté of another era in your life.
Love – Contentious sexual and also marital matters can be discussed and resolved with some rational and common sense. As long as conversation is possible, resolution on many matters is possible with some quite creative and pleasing outcomes.
Career – Right now, the key to your business success is in your immediate environment, and that means local community, neighbouring businesses, local business networks, local facilities, and so take note of those things which are under your nose and see what they can tell you about how to do better business.
Health – Virgo need to step out of themselves and look at events from a perspective that is not your own – perhaps you need to look at things from your parents’ side, your children’s side, your competitors’ side – immerse yourself in their emotions, and see it from their eyes.
Love – A time of many questions and doubts about other people and their motivations; you may also question your ability to handle certain situations; however, you can sense truths now in the sober frame of mind which is very helpful.
Career – Disagreements in business dealings can be protracted and very hard to iron out, and it takes a great deal of mental fortitude and patience to keep going – the plus side is that what is eventually thrashed out will be enduring.
Health – If you have abandoned any project, especially one connected to self-improvement, now is the time to pick it up again and get going.
Love – Scorpio will seek to be with people who reinforce what you are most proud of and what you aspire to be; do not look to spend time with those who bring to the fore your baser instincts.
Career – Your own experience is your best guide right now; so no matter what others are saying about XYZ, if XYZ never worked before for you, it won’t now and so use the past as your best guide to the future.
Health – This is a very powerful time mentally for Scorpio; you can literally think yourself into or out of problems. Your mind is both incisive and highly observant, and you can project your thoughts out into the world so that they can manifest.
Love – You are able to turn on the charm, and you can avoid that foot in the mouth bluntness that often trips you up in love. Love means doing things together, and Sagittarians understand that good sex is all about ambiance and build up.
Career – This is not a good time to lend out equipment or share an asset, in fact, it is a tricky time for any sort of sharing or cost splitting.
Health – Look for anything you once aspired to or enjoyed and stopped doing because of a painful rejection, humiliation or harsh criticism and get back on that horse – learn from the mistakes and pick up the pieces and try again.
Love – You are entering an excellent time for relationships – problems can be smoothed over and in new relationships there is an increased level of understanding and cooperation
Career – Your dealings with others are about to get easier and so jump back into negotiations or discussions and despite the past you can actually get a new outcome that will surprise.
Health – Avoid alcohol and caffeine today: boost energy with avocado, a smoothie with coconut and a light salad with an olive oil and lemon juice dressing.
Love – Time to pay attention to technical details in love – your partner may care more about how you help out in practical ways rather than hearing sweet nothings. Often love is hard work and today you cannot escape the boring chores which show your commitment.
Career – This a more serious time when you have to put in the grind and concentrate. It is a great period for detail work and also for being highly critical – you can work long hours, often alone and can achieve a great deal.
Health – Aquarians are after easy answers in terms of health and that can cost – you may buy something which offers fast and substantial results but which fails to deliver.
Love – Pisces are happy to take on greater responsibility for friends where you feel the friendship has value and deeper meaning and in those friendships you will go to great lengths to aid and protect that friend.
Career – You are radically individual, and you trust your senses even when you feel they may get you into trouble.
Health – Restriction is to be rebelled against, and expansion embraced. Test yourself, set targets and goals both physical and mental. Diet should include more organic foods and fresh produce, and you must ensure you are not deficient in any minerals.
Love – A day filled with promise for meeting partners with potential and yet that potential can take a year or so to unfold. In marriage responsibilities feel lighter now, and so this is a good time to strengthen the emotional and sexual side of relationships.
Career – This is an ideal time for planning not only staff parties but parties for your suppliers, distributors or anyone who you see as an essential part of your network and day-to-day worklife.
Health – This is a very good time for training and weight-loss exercise; this is also great for those who want to build up to a big challenge fitness-wise.
Love – You want the one you love to have your back, just as you have theirs, and any sense that they are less committed than you can make you withdraw and be less emotional.
Career – Working in teams can be frustrating to you, and you may resent having to drag along the less able members – you need to make everyone feel included and valued to create more productivity in general.
Health – You may want to press yourself hard physically, but this may be to let off steam rather than for fitness sake per se, and you should be careful to be measured and not reckless.
Love – You will do anything for your loved one, and if someone crosses your partner, you will take it personally and go out of your way to fight their corner. You will also stick up for your partner if they are criticised by your family.
Career – Often, your pre-conceived ideas can cloud your judgment, and you may resent being questioned. Try to take a step back and ask yourself if you are making decisions on actual facts or perceptions as perceptions can be more powerful than reality to you.
Health – Trust in all your dealings is very important, and if you do feel that you have been betrayed or that your interests are compromised, you can be quick to end the relationship or take further action.
Love – Cancer are friendly and sociable, which means if you are single you will be placing yourself in the ideal circumstances to meet interesting new partners who have good long-term potential.
Career – Sharp and eloquent, you know what you want, and that will make it much easier for you to get it. Your focus is clear, and your mind is processing information fast.
Health – This is a great time to start lessons to improve skills, i.e., your golf swing, tennis serve, French pronunciation, your vocal range (if you are a singer), etc.
Love – This is a very practical and solid time in relationships where contentment, security and common purpose grow, increasing deeper understanding and long-term happiness.
Career – Your judgment is very good right now, and that can help you in business, i.e., by choosing the right associates and identifying the best plans, and it can also help you if you work with people where you make judgement calls every day, i.e., the police, social work, legal advice or arbitration.
Health – You will get bored very fast, and it will take a great deal to keep you occupied; you will seek new people, places, and often you can be rather extreme in seeking new experiences. It’s all about novelty and creating excitement.
Love – Your partner may find you a little erratic and very hard to understand. You are extremely impulsive right now, and some of your decisions may not go down well.
Career – Today old school ties, glass ceilings and perceived social class divides are more apparent and may hamper your progress. You have the will right now to fight against entrenched views and change things for yourself and others.
Health – Don’t overdo it – this weekend it can be hard to know when enough is enough. So be it partying, promoting, working – know when enough is enough and don’t burn too much of the midnight all. Pace yourself from today.
Love – A great time for the start of a new love interest. Aquarians are very appealing to the opposite sex right now as you are giving off a confident air. You are also more likely to make a move on someone who interests you, and this will open the door to new romance.
Career – Creatively you are fired up and can produce work fast and furiously – some of your work may need quite a bit of refining and editing later as you are inclined to just go for it, letting vent to all your deeply held emotions.
Health – You are not likely to make new friends or contacts now unless there is a very powerful reason to form that connection as you simply do not have the emotional energy to keep superfluous friendships going.
Love – Scorpio are great actors, and often they play a role; it can be part of a fantasy or indeed a way of self-protection, but how long is it sustainable, and what happens when reality tests a new relationship?
Career – You may find that you are disappointed in an authority figure who was once supportive and even instrumental in helping you in your career – this reflects how far you have come and that you can now see their mistakes and know that you want to avoid those mistakes.
Health – It can even be that you have a period of lessened contact with family members who you feel are controlling or are negative influences.
Love – Your partner cannot be convinced by arguing; let the matter lie, and discuss it at a time when you are both relaxed. Use the art of subtle persuasion rather than hammering home your ideas aggressively.
Career – This can a good day for any Archer involved in teaching or raising awareness, no matter what the subject, as you are skilled at putting ideas across in an inspiring way.
Health – Sagittarians have to be wary of bad habits making a return as your disciple and resistance is low and so stay away from situations where you could face temptation and fall off the wagon.
Love – You are very romantic right now and also extremely adaptable to the needs of your partner. You may get quite some satisfaction from helping or caring for your loved one.
Career – You can rely on your gut feel, flashes of insight and sudden inspiration to give you a spurt on in both business and artistic pursuits.
Health – Your ESP is strong right now, and you should not ignore hunches about people or places, even if they do not make sense – you are attuned to the atmosphere and able to pick up on subtle signals others are giving off.
Love – Little will get you down right now, and even if your loved one is a little reserved or even down in the dumps, you will cheer him/her up. You will most likely want to surprise your partner with a special gift, meal or even a trip away as you are highly spontaneous.
Career – Those with artistic interests will have excellent prospects in terms of receiving more training and honing your talent by developing new skills. This is an excellent time for all self-expression and for taking creative projects forward.
Health – This is a time of beig mature and you need to face up to the sharp side of things – this means acknowledging that there are often tough decisions to make in impossible situations, and that you cannot always please everyone, but you still have to be decisive to get ahead.
Love – Pisces are looking for a mirror for their own emotional intensity and may find love with Scorpios, or Cancer especially right now.
Career – An ideal time to begin new adventures, especially ones that are ambitious and long range – this is the time to start journeys (not in terms of travel, but terms of goals), and you should enjoy every step of the way rather than fixating on the eventual outcome.
Health – Understanding your own psychology and especially your relationship psychology could be the key to breaking bad habits. It is also time to address areas of your life where you are becoming too inflexible and a little obsessive.
Love – If you make a stand when it comes to red lines in relationships and you can pave the way for better understaing later on, but if you fail to set the tone now, you will regret it in 3 months’ time.
Career – A very energetic time when Arians can take advantage of a Mars burst of energy which enables you to get a great deal done, although you tend to start things and quit for something more interesting half way through.
Health – Good intentions and good beginnings mean that plenty of calories get burned but specific targets may not be reached.
Love – Everything is better with two today and so even if you are single seek out a pal to hang out with after work and if you are married time to get a table reserved at a nice quiet restaurant with a good ambiance.
Career – There is a strong desire to create today and that energy can be used to be artistically creative or just in terms of creative new environments, new methods and setting in motion new collaborations.
Health – A great day for health as you feel more at ease within and yet you are more likely to want to relax and luxuriate than do something physical.
Love – You are rather independent right now and are likely to wish to pursue your own interests away from the relationship – a time when you need to press the boundaries and resist in control in love that may be encroaching.
Career – You are highly conscious of your objectives right now and that means that you can work with great productivity and you can also motivate others as you lead by example.
Health – Gemini are vigorous and you have high energy which is great not only for your fitness goals but because you can energise any sports team you are part of and ensure success.
Love – A favourable impression you make on a boss or superior could be connected to your charm and also a certain sexual element and so make sure you keep that sexual side of things in check.
Career – Venus brings success in any group endeavour or with your public relations efforts – you find it easy to be diplomatic even with people who are difficult and demanding.
Health – You have a sweet tooth right now and so avoid temptation; if you remove things like sugar or cookies from sight there is an out of sight out of mind effect.
Love – Leo are in the mood for love and you are also in the mood for sex – you are itching to go dancing or do some physical activity that arouses you and gets you feeling sexy. You can be highly flirtatious and spontaneous affairs are possible.
Career – You are more willing to compromise today and so you will be less inclined to fight for what you want and yet if you go too easy on the competition today you may regret it later.
Health – Although a Mars trine to your Sun brings energy, the Venus square with your Sun inclines you to put that energy into having fun or pursuing things that make you feel happy and relaxed.
Love – Love, intimacy and affection all get a boost especially if your partner is an earth sign; but you may find that after the initial advances you just fall into bed and have a good kip rather than a major bonk.
Career – This is an excellent time for both working alone or in a team; you are very easy going and are able to apply your skills in many different spheres with ease – you can switch between roles seamlessly. An excellent day to pass a test or assessment.
Health – If you have been struggling with motivation, today should see a positive surge where you begin to believe that greater and better things are possible for your health and also for your lifestyle and work life balance in general.
Love – Single Libra are impatient to get into relationships and so may choose the first guy/gal that comes along rather than waiting and testing the waters.
Career – If you have colleagues or even clients whom you have to organise, it can be challenging, and you will have to give them tight deadlines and targets. Keep communicating and ram home the agenda.
Health – Eat like a peasant – no, not too little but focus on root vegetables, slow cooked meals and stews rather than modern meals like pasta and sauces or spicey exotic dishes.
Love – Today is about restoring intimacy on the deepest levels via quality sexual and intellectual stimulation. This, however, cannot be rushed; you need to make the time and turn down all the distractions.
Career – You can get the most out of today by doing things you really enjoy and being with people you really want to be with, rather than socialising or networking with people you don’t like just for some perceived advantage
Health – Being constrained by the speed or attitudes of others will feel frustrating, and yet being part of the group can help your own motivation and keep your energy high.
Love – You are very sensitive right now, and certain criticism may feed into your self-doubts and insecurity – you must repel any feedback that is negative or unhelpful and take on board anything that can take the relationship foreward.
Career – Crunch the numbers and pay attention to any rebates, allowances or government subsidies you may qualify for on a personal or professional basis – you could be missing out if you do not stay abreast of what is available.
Health – A time for new routines and for finding ways to fit everything in while allowing time for harmonious and quite meal times as well as at least 10 minutes a day for physical activity where you get your heart rate up.
Love – This is a highly idealistic time for relationships of all types and a time that can be richly rewarding or very disappointing. It will be disappointing if you allow your expectations to become unrealistic as getting carried away is a part of this phase. It can be rewarding if you can relax, let your hair down, go with the flow and have a no strings attached, wild abandon style of love.
Career – Creatively you tend to gel with people and yet when it comes to dealing with suppliers or caterers it can be a massive headache and so if you are holding events make sure the people who can make or break the event in terms of the logistics and supply are prepped and ready to perform.
Health – One in four people are very sensitive to everyday household products – you may be one and so tail back on fragrance rich cleaners.
Love – It may be a case of having to put your pride in your pocket when it comes to an individual dispute you have within your family for the greater good of the family as a whole.
Career – This is a good day to deal with real estate sales and transfers, investment in real estate or investment in geological research. Take note of environmental law and regulations and make sure you comply if looking into new development.
Health – You may feel a little irritable and ill at ease and that can make you you quite snappy, but you will be quick to apologize. You may need to let off steam by doing something like boxing or shouting at a sports team just to get that inner frustration out.
Love – Pisces’ desire nature is stimulated by Mars and yet you will have to compromise to get what you want and after all the compromise you may be more ready for sleep than sex.
Career – They say you have to spend money to make money and yet you have to really know if what you are spending on will have the desired results and so do not shell out impulsively hoping for the bets Pisces.
Health – Aromatherapy can have terrific effects and so if you need lavender for calming or basil and ginger to pep you up do not underestimate the power of smell.
Love – You love the tangible in love right now and so you will desire affection, some materialistic spoiling and a neck massive will go down extremely well as your neck and upper chest are your erogenous zones today.
Career – As the moon is in waxing phase Aries have to rev that engine on the starting grid a little longer and so hold back on the big surge forward or any brand new initiatives.
