It's shaping up to be a difficult month with Venus retrograde only ending as Mercury retrograde begins. But we're getting close to Christmas, so keep up the positive vibes and we'll get through it together.

Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19)

For the most part, things have been going your way, particularly when it comes to relationships. But things have started to stagnate with Venus in retrograde, which will ultimately lead to chaos in your love life. You're going to be feeling uncertain about a lot of things as Mars moves into Pisces, but trust your instincts and things will become clearer.

Tarot: Ace of Wands, reversed - New opportunities are definitely on the horizon, but there may be delays on the way.

Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20)

The sense of balance you've been experiencing at work will have a positive impact on your relationships as the Sun moves into your 7th house, and you're going to find yourself better able to communicate in matters of sex and money. There's even a chance you might meet your soulmate at work with Venus in your 6th house, and putting all your energy into social occasions could prove fruitful.

Tarot: King of Pentacles, reversed - Beware of jealous feelings and selfishness in financial matters.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 20)

You'll find yourself the centre of attention in extracurricular matters which will ultimately cross over into your worklife in an important way this month. But your determination to get everything done and be everywhere is affecting your relationships, and emotions are going to be extremely heightened by the time the Full Moon appears in Gemini. Time to re-assess the balance in your life.

Tarot: Death - A huge change is on the cards for Gemini; embrace the transition!

Cancer (Jun. 21 - Jul. 22)

Your identity has been an important part of your self-discovery recently with the Sun and Venus in your 4th house, and exploring your roots could bring a love of excitement and even romance this month. An emotional trip could be on the cards, and all this self-confirmation has given you a new lease of life particularly in work matters.

Tarot: Three of Swords, reversed - You emotional confusion or heartache is about to come to an end.

Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22)

Communication amongst family members is set to become disrupted, particularly where children are concerned. Romantic relationships remain peaceful, however, so it might be a good time to focus on romance until the family situation calms down - which might be a while thanks to Mercury being in retrograde from later this month.

Tarot: Eight of Swords - Don't be tempted to cut yourself off from people to avoid confrontation. You'll only end up feeling trapped.

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22)

You've been working hard and gotten quite good at balancing the books and sticking to a budget, but you are in danger of becoming frivolous and spending too much on social and family events as Christmas approaches. You'll soon realise that you can maintain meaningful relationships without emptying the bank.

Tarot: Eight of Wands, reversed - Leave plenty of time for any big trip coming up, as there could be delays or setbacks in travelling.

Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 22)

You've been forming some great partnerships recently which are having a huge impact on the way you see yourself, and those are only going to intensify as the Sun moves into Scorpio. It will certainly have positive impact on your work ethic. Try to stay connected with the new people in your life, because it can only mean good things.

Tarot: Eight of Pentacles - You could be about to learn a new skill, or at least improve on skills you already have.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)

Financial pursuits continue to be optimistic for a couple more weeks - your intuition in such matters, and those of love, have been excellent so far but here's a warning: Don't get too big for your boots! The New Moon is in your sign which means it could be time for re-assessing some areas of your life - perhaps look at how much of your time is being taken up by your friends and family.

Tarot: The Star, reversed - Have trust in yourself; you are likely to feel a little disconnected from people this month.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

You've been enjoying the harmony you've found in social gatherings and any groups you are involved in, and as November goes on you're going to find being around people a healing experience in a powerful way. A new romantic relationship may not be the best course of action while Venus is still in retrograde, but you'll find happiness in focusing on yourself and learning about your identity during this time.

Tarot: Page of Pentacles, reversed - Procrastination will bring slow progress, so learn from your mistakes.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)

Work, you might find, will be a little disrupted due to new attractive social opportunities. As long as you keep work and play separate and maintain that balance, though, you should be fine. You'll be feeling really positive generally, but don't get overly optimistic - it's good that you want to focus on new creative ventures but don't let it distract you from what's most important.

Tarot: Three of Pentacles, reversed - Disharmony in the workplace could mean your forced to work alone. But this should soon pass.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)

Moral fibre is the order of the day for Aquarius. You'll be pleased to know that matters of friendship and charity will be at the forefront of your interactions, and it may have a profound effect on how people see you. A new adventure could lead to romantic opportunities, but it's unlikely to be anything serious.

Tarot: The Fool - It's time to realise your potential and jump at that next big opportunity that comes along. It could be special.

Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20)

Intimate relationships have been harmonious so far, and things will only get better - you know how to maintain mystery in your romantic ventures. Mars enters your 1st house which sees you putting a lot of energy into emotional matters. But try not to get too "in your head", or you're in danger of bringing it to your work life and you want to stay positive in that aspect.

Tarot: Ace of Pentacles, reversed - Stay focused on money matters because a lack of planning could be disastrous.
