ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Seeing is not necessarily believing. With the Sun at the opposite point of the zodiac to Neptune, there is a fine mist draped over life and love. Always the warrior, this is no time to head into battle without knowing the terrain – or your enemy. Check everything. Assume nothing. In the main, this advice applies to your words and actions in response to an unexpected situation, however, you may not be on top form, even a tad under the weather. If you are feeling less than your best, take a break and admit that sometimes it is all a bit too much for you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Feeling romantic? Are you dreaming of things you’d like to do? Places you’d like to go? People you’d love to be with? It’s that kind of astro-scape. Hopes and dreams are essential and time spent working on them time well spent, however, what you want to avoid in this climate is allowing your attention to wander when you need to be focused. You could miss a signal, misinterpret someone’s actions or simply make an error that could take time and effort to repair. And vice versa, other people could have their head in the clouds and their feet on slippery ground.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
We are still in Neptune country which means nothing is quite as it seems. Mixed messages, doubts and fears or unrealistic hopes could all be part of the astro-package and you’ll need to be on your guard for slips of the real and the metaphorical kind. Is there a plus to this planet of mists and mysteries? If you need inspiration Neptune is your mentor and should you enjoy soul-to-soul exchanges, this planet will provide them. So, although there are hidden dangers to be aware of, you could instead embrace your muse and enjoy a large helping of soul food.
Magic or mystery.
CANCER (June 21- July 22)
There is still a chance to expand your horizons, whether you do so in terms of miles, knowledge or experience – maybe all three. And although I wouldn’t recommend making a move that requires a huge element of risk, leaps of faith are often the way to achieve your dreams and ambitions. There could be an opportunity to mend a fence, which even if you believe you have done nothing wrong, you should take. Healing can occur now and understandings of the heart made. Indeed, although this is a tricky astrological climate, it can preside over miracles and magic moments.
It’s a strange world.
LEO (July 23-August 23)
Money is the primary focus for Neptune’s weird and not-always-so-wonderful influence. Figures may not add up, payments may fail to go through and in general what you thought was the reality turns out not to be. The antidote is to keep on doing the sums and making sure that everything you need to be there is there. Then again, Neptune could put on its benevolent face and provide healing and help where it is needed most. Forgiveness isn’t always easy to muster or accept, but it’s a whole lot better than feeling permanently aggrieved.
Show your love.
VIRGO (Aug 24-Sept22)
Neptune has been in the frame for a couple of weeks so you may still be confused by someone’s behavior or uncertain about the future of a project or relationship. Things may get even stranger this week, so avoid making any irrevocable moves. What seems to be true could be completely false. This is not to say you should ignore a red flag, more that a situation needs thorough investigation before you reach a conclusion. Some Virgos, however, will be getting the best of Neptune, in which case you’ll be living on cloud nine, enjoying spell-binding moments.
Not really real.
LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
Finally, the Sun exits the house of secrets and shadows and enters your sign. However, the mysteries may linger. Neptune is the master of intrigue and in charge of cosmic affairs this week. You could be lucky and have a dream come true or experience some other beautiful moment, but, in the main, you need to carefully monitor situations and avoid making moves when you are distracted or exhausted. Things go missing under Neptune, and that includes missing the point, missing connections and missing someone who should be there with you or for you.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21)
One thing you can say about Neptune is that at least it’s not Uranus and occupying your seventh house. Neptune is instead in the fifth house of love, pleasure and creative endeavors and it may well be supplying blessings in abundance this week. On the other hand, you may feel deeply let down. Perhaps an event fails to live up to expectations or maybe something will fall through at the last minute, but whatever disappoints can be worked through. Plus, when Neptune is in high profile, all sorts of misunderstandings and muddles tend to occur, which can turn out to be blessings in disguise.
Not all in the imagination.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21)
If you’ve ever had to untangle a set of tree lights, you’ll know how impossible it seems at the beginning, but if you keep going, suddenly it starts to free up. This is a metaphor for how things may seem at the moment. Complicated. A mess. No way through. However, there is a way through and with persistence you’ll get there. Neptune is in charge, which means there are no rules and threading your way through the week requires patience, diligence and an ace sat nav. Not everyone is speaking the truth or in possession of the facts, so take nothing on trust and do your research.
Don’t lose the plot.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
If the astrology were the weather, it would be misty and murky, dank and dismal. It’s not necessarily going to stop you from doing what you want to do, but you may have to negotiate some muddy waters and slippery slopes along the way. All things spiritual, artistic, creative and romantic thrive in a climate like this, but getting firm answers and situations nailed down is probably going to be a bridge too far. Travel could be more complicated than usual, and before you set off on a journey, it will be good to have a plan B and contact numbers in your backpack.
Don’t get caught on the hop.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18)
When Neptune is in the mix, truth and accuracy go walkabout, which is why you need to be super-alert for lies, mistakes and misunderstandings now. Especially where finances are concerned, do the sums several times and get offers and statements in writing. It could be you who misinterprets information or other people could get their wires crossed. Either way, keep reminding yourself that not everything you’re hearing, seeing and being told is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. By contrast, if you’re dating someone new – or even someone old! – things could get very romantic.
Use your demister.
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20)
Your intuition may be good but it’s not infallible, so tread carefully when following your hunches. Have a back-up plan. Feel your way tentatively. Get the facts. While the climate is perfect for a romantic idyll or activities that uplift the spirit, it’s not so great for precision work. Also, forgiveness may be divine but buying into a whole lot of raspberry definitely is not. It will be easy to slip into the victim role too, which means not allowing people to take advantage of your generosity and kindness. Ask yourself: is this real? And if the answer is no, walk away.
It’s got to be real.
