Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Haste and inopportune actions could lead to disputes and conflicts during this unstable period. You have a lot of energy and enthusiasm which needs an outlet so ensure that you undertake physical activities. Channel the rest of the energy into projects which will keep you challenged and engaged but be careful that you do not burn the candle at both ends as this will only serve to exhaust you or make you vulnerable. Sustained effort rather than bursts of activity will be more productive so reign in your innate impatience and look to short-term goals to keep you motivated.
MANTRA: Be positive, be patient, be persistent.
STYLE: Keoki Playsuit
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Shifting priorities will challenge your need for stability and security especially if those priorities are set by others. Do not be tempted to justify your position as this will only be to your detriment. A better strategy is to set your own goals regardless of others’ opinion and pursue them to the best of your abilities. You will have to be prepared to take some risks or make changes as circumstances will create a crisis situation. Stick to your guns and persevere with your goals, trusting your ability to realise practical results.
MANTRA: I am attracting all of the love and I dream of and deserve.
STYLE: The Horse watch
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
Unexpected or upsetting situations characterise this period so be precise and considered in both opinion and communication with others. This is a time of crisis and change, so be circumspect in both decisions and ideas as they may come across as excessive or arrogant and some may take issue with them. The situation will ease off, however, relationships with others will be influenced by what has occurred. Use your innate ability to be articulate and do not rely on conjecture and rumour, instead, be direct and uncompromising with the truth.
MANTRA: Keep calm and carry on.
STYLE: Mayan watch pack
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
A good time to use your compassion and caring for the benefit of others although this may not be recognised or acknowledged. Do not let this keep you from doing what you think is right although do not be tempted to assume you know what is good for others instead be guided by their wishes. Some may be critical and use this against you but the important thing in this period is to persevere as the unexpected will put you and others on notice. The best response is to these challenges is to rely on your experience to weather the storm.
MANTRA: I will accept the things I cannot change.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Initial results of recent projects are good but be prepared to look beyond the surface as you will tend to see things with rose-coloured glasses. There may be issues that are not evident so be patient and take your time. You may want to look at alternative ways to get things done as the ordinary or orthodox ways will not be as effective. Constructive criticism is necessary to hone both your skills and efforts so do not rely on friends as you will have a tendency to hear only what you want. Be prepared to ask for it from colleagues or professionals.
MANTRA: I am a work in progress.
STYLE: Sphinx Skirt
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You have a need to do the right thing and to do it in the correct manner. The initial challenge may seem to revolve around conflict so be prepared to be flexible as being too pedantic can have negative results on what you want to achieve. Your need for consistency may also be undermined by an air of uncertainty so being adaptable to changing circumstances will help you through this period. Things will start to ease as you find that there are those who support your efforts as well as your endeavours. Decisions made now should also reflect the prevailing situation.
MANTRA: Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful.
STYLE: No Frills Crop
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Contentions and conflicts are in the air and your conciliatory nature will be challenged. You go to any lengths to avoid arguments and differences with others often at your own expense. Instead of trying to keep everyone happy or maintaining the status quo, consider voicing your opinion or taking a stand for what you believe is important. This may initially upset a few people but the long-term effect is that you will gain the respect of others for sticking to your principles as opposed to pleasing others. This may also help you develop new or better relations.
MANTRA: Choose to shine.
STYLE: Sundrop Lace Dress
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
The instability of this period comes unexpectedly so be prepared to change or adapt your plans. Any rigidity or lack of flexibility will make things much harder. Don’t waste time and energy hitting your head against a brick wall as this will not alter anything instead change your perspective. You will find that by doing so the instability becomes manageable. Trust your instincts during this time as they will help you navigate through situations which lack clarity or definition.
MANTRA: This too shall pass.
STYLE: Found Basics
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
A good period to evaluate the plans you have for the coming year as these will be subject to change which come about as a consequence of some new factors which have not yet been defined and which brings some new connections into your life. The challenge they bring will call on your ability to think outside the square and to consider alternatives which may be unorthodox or different. Your natural enthusiasm will help you see the positives but take the time to examine the detail before jumping in.
MANTRA: Do more of what makes you happy.
STYLE: #Floaty Inflatable Unicorn
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
The importance of good communication is emphasised as you look to implementing the continued changes that have been current for a while now. Strong ideas and their expression may see you take a particular stand on some issues which may put you at odds with some people. You may have to examine just what is important and what you are prepared to advocate and weigh this up against your need for respect and authority. In the long run, it is not simply about being right but about what you stand for in terms of integrity and credibility.
MANTRA: Stick to your guns.
STYLE: Keoki Playsuit
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Opportunities arise as consequence of a group or its activities and you may find there are financial gains to be had by taking on some added responsibility. This may come after a recent period of frustrations but you must be prepared to shoulder much of this on your own. Alternatively, these responsibilities may take you away from social or family connections so some may find this time isolating. Your need to be part of something coupled with a strong independent streak are your best assets to make the most of what develops.
MANTRA: Forward progress! Just keep moving!
STYLE: Vans Hi Tops
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
There are new connections that come your way and you will have to be prepared to be realistic about your expectations. Your sensitive and compassionate nature will often react emotionally to external factors and you rely on your intuition to guide you. During this time, you may have to be more pragmatic about things otherwise there is a real danger that a misplaced sense of trust could lead to at best, confusion or at worst deception. This may not sit comfortably but by doing things differently, you may find that the benefits are worth the effort.
MANTRA: I am grateful for all that is unfolding in my life and all that is to come.
