Mercury semi-sextile Venus on your solar return chart suggests a good year ahead. Expect a lot of new energy, new events and new emotional gratification to come from this area of your life. Access your inner child and allow them out to play…it is quite likely that they know precisely where you need to be on that sparkling horizon ahead. The first part of the year finds bonuses and rewards incoming for efforts you invested in during 2017. Tuck away any windfalls or unexpected financial pay offs and allow them to help you build a base of security rather than splurging them on a sudden new whim. Friendships and siblings play a role in here and learning when to trust their advice and when to trust your own is an important challenge. All in all the realm of finances and material security is under your own power and focusing on what you built in the previous period and making it work for you without losing your motivation helps you feel solid and settled.

‘Forecast for Today’
Aries : (April 14 – May 14)
Your responsibilities are clearly defined today and you can’t wait to get to work. Ironically, it doesn’t even matter whether you enjoy your job; you are simply excited about establishing priorities and completing tasks one at a time. Fortunately, there is a direct cause-and-effect relationship between your efforts and your accomplishments. Karma delivers in mysterious ways.
Taurus : (May 15 – June 15)
You are a master at work as you meticulously transform your plan into reality today. People know they can rely on your word; if you say you’ll do something, there’s no question you will come through with the goods. However, you could get so distracted by a trivial detail now that you lose sight of your overall goal. Pay attention to your progress moment by moment while keeping one eye on the distant horizon.
Gemini : (June 16 – July 15)
You are torn between hard work and no work today. You want nothing more than to please your boss now and are willing to work extra hard to demonstrate your diligence. Don’t get lazy and fall back on your charm as a substitute for blood, sweat and tears. Author Jack Canfield wrote, “There is only one person responsible for the quality of your life. That person is you.”
Cancer : (July 16 – August 15)
You can make your super-packed schedule work smoothly today by sticking to it with no exceptions. But everything is so tightly booked that it could quickly fall apart as soon as you add any extraneous activities. However, practicing self-discipline enables you to accomplish an amazing amount of work. Ultimately, your success depends upon creating a realistic agenda.

Leo : (August 16 – September 15)
You’re inclined to give more thought to your responsibilities, plans, work, and reputation during this cycle. You’re also more accountable for what you communicate and more aware of how you are coming across when you speak or write. Others may recognize you for your ideas or intelligence, and this is rewarding. This day is useful for making business contacts and connections or for learning more about your field.
Colour: Dove grey
Virgo : (September 16 – October 15)
This is a powerful time for optimism and hope or supportive, helpful news that excites you about your future. Look for openings and opportunities, particularly involving career, business, friendships, alliances, and reputation. Who you know may be important now, but perhaps even more vital is what you say or the ideas you come up with.Author Doe Zantamata wrote, “Your intuition is the most honest friend that you will ever have.”
Colour: Sea Green
Libra : (October 16 – November 15)
You take your work quite seriously today because you don’t want to be distracted by irrelevant matters. You’re clear about your values and committed to acting in accordance with them. However, the fussy planets encourage you to be so focused on the minutiae that you may lose sight of the big picture. It’s been said that life is like a cup of tea; it’s all in how you make it.
Colour: Leaf green
Scorpio : (November 16 – December 15)
Your reputation for accommodating others often precedes you, but you can be a force to be reckoned with when necessary. You are wielding an iron fist in a velvet glove today. Anyone who mistakenly thinks you are a pushover will quickly discover that they are dealing with a master strategist. You possess an intuitive understanding of how an action can influence a trajectory of events into the future.
Colour: Light pink
Sagittarius : (December 16 – January 13)
You are trying to budget your time extremely carefully today, since you need to make observable progress on a project to satisfy your boss. Unfortunately, the picture others see doesn’t tell the whole story. Paradoxically, the harder you try to please someone else now, the greater the potential for failure. Continue on your present course without worrying about falling short of anyone’s expectations.
Colour: Sky Blue
Capricorn : (January 14 – February 11)
Your objectives are so specific now that it’s easy to gauge your progress. There’s no doubt that you’re on track, but you may wish you were closer to fulfilling your ambitions. Don’t get hung up about the timing of your success; just keep on marching forward with a determined confidence today. As long as you stay focused on your primary intention, you’ll arrive at your destination sooner than you think.
Colour: Off White
Aquarius : (February 12 – March 13)
You gain strength from interacting with your peers today, especially if you are willing to let them help you. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to get along with others, but you can learn from their constructive criticism. Sufficient self-assurance enables you to truly listen to feedback, especially if it’s not what you want to hear. Goethe wrote, “To accept good advice is but to increase one’s own ability.”
Pisces : (March 14 – April 13)
Your altruistic ideals and high standards can limit your choices at work now. Opportunities may open up that are in conflict with your personal code of ethics, requiring you to get in touch with your moral compass. But don’t fret if you have to decline due to a conflict with your life’s purpose; serving the wrong master will only create heartache in the long run. There’s no reason to deviate from your prime directive even if another goal seems more lucrative.
