March 21 – April 19

Before you rush headlong into making any rash decisions, it is recommended that you investigate what is actually going on. Take a step back, if you can, you will then see the situation more clearly and learn much about yourself in the process.  You are now ready to confront your fears and grow beyond self-imposed boundaries. Go for it Aries, you like a challenge!


April 20 – May 20

You may have to admit that the decisions and actions you recently made, need to be dealt with now. It is always advisable to be totally honest in all relationships, especially with regards to your boundaries. Else a lesson be learned to others’ detriment! Endeavour to be truthful, even when it may cost you something you’d rather keep!  When decisions are made, we either reap the rewards or suffer the consequences of our choices. So choose well dear Taurus!


May 21 – June 21

Finally, the time has come for you to move on from the stagnant place you’ve been wallowing in. As you confront your inhibitions and old beliefs you will feel a great sense of balance. Even as your moods and circumstances ebb and sway, you remain motivated and charged! Be flexible with your goals and imagination during August, as things don’t always go to plan!


June 22 – July 22

Action is required, even though you are totally unsure of the outcome or how things will pan out. Work on yourself; take control, confront your fears and stand up for yourself and all that you believe in. Life is a wonderful journey, new beginnings are created after taking one step out of our respective comfort zones!


July 23 – Aug 22

A powerful Solar Eclipse in your sign on the 11th is going to ignite a spark within. which fires you up to work on some much needed changes in your life. Making this is a good time to begin visualising and creating what you would really like in and from life. Remember to put into action any feelings or thoughts which appear. Make things happen!


Aug 23 – Sept 22

August is about focusing on relationships for Sun sign Virgo’s. With the current planetary activity, you are being prodded to face the truth about what exists between you and those around you. Do you need to try harder or do you simply need to let go? This can be determined with an honest, non-judgemental and patient approach towards your friends and colleagues. Perfection is in the eye of the beholder, but some are more beholden than others!


Sept 23 – Oct 22

The time is ripe to begin chipping away at all the tasks you have felt too overwhelmed and browbeaten to undertake. Begin clearing and sorting slowly. Once you begin you won’t be able to stop, as you feel a deep sense of satisfaction when another task is crossed off your list! The Eclipse on the 11th will give you a much needed boost to get things progressing forward at an even swifter pace! Clear the clutter, clear the mind.


Oct 23 – Nov 21

Certain aspects of your life have picked up of late, that’s for sure! Yet, you are at a cross-roads in life and planning the next step seems to feel to be of huge importance. As with any change; concerns and anxieties will come to the fore. The advise is that you explore those emotions and don’t try to shy away from them! The fundamental decision is to choose what gives you life, opposed to eluding to any inner negativity. It feels like the time for another Phoenix transformation of bursting into flames to then be reborn with a new and clean slate and state of mind! It is and will be ALL good!



Nov 22 – Dec 21

The process of becoming and finding yourself requires flexibility, adaptation, and then repeat. Growth inescapably leads to change, while change doesn’t necessarily generate growth. Don’t shut down or become defensive when decisions need to be made out of your comfort zone. And definitely do not retreat in the face of adversity! Prioritise ‘yourself’ over any situation. Embrace and enjoy your life and all that it entails!


Dec 22 – Jan 19

A lesson we all need to master, is to not worry about what others are or aren’t doing instead of figuring out what is right for ourselves! Realise that what other people think is valuable information but not gospel. Now is a great time to prioritise and live your life on your own terms. After all, nobody but you is in charge of the steering wheel of your life!


Jan 20 – Feb 18

August is all about the choices you make and the impact that they have on every area of your life. It’s been tough recently, but relationships should be embraced as a reflection of past choices, when many lessons were learned. Or were they? Accept that resentment hurts nobody but you. You may need to change your mind or change your actions! But whatever you decide, do it from a place of love in your mind, body and soul. ‘Welcome to Cafe Karma. There are no menus. You get served what your deserve’.


Feb 19 – March 20

Embrace your own growth and potential this month. It is time for a shift in perspective and for making changes that stick in order to create real change in your life. No time for dreaming! If you don’t take the opportunities offered for transformation, the full moon on he 26th will push the changes on you. While we don’t get to choose all that life will bring, we can choose how we are willing to react to life’s opportunities and experiences we encounter along the way. Enjoy the journey!
