Astrologist Marjorie Orr Answers Your Questions


She accurately predicted Prince William’s wedding date and Liz Hurley’s marriage split, and this week renowned astrologist Marjorie Orr joined us on Facebook to answer your questions!

Here’s a roundup of what we can all expect in the coming months, based on her answers from the Q&A:

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

‘Aries are certainly in a year with two Lunar Eclipses pointing the way to relationship changes. You’re in a fairly independent phase so you’d need a partner who lets you suit yourself some of the time. From this July, Jupiter moving into Leo could make you more fertile (Leo is the house of children for you). You’re probably feeling a bit unsupported at the moment, though standing on your own does teach you how to cope. Your social confidence will be higher after mid-year so you’ll have a real chance of meeting someone new. Good luck.’

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

‘Oh dear -Taurus hate being insecure where finances are concerned, or if they’re tied in by other people. In general, you’ll feel more content within yourself in the second half of the year. The real push with debt problems will come next year, so it does suggest you’ll just have to chip, chip, chip away at the problem. It won’t sort out overnight.’

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

‘Gemini are feeling a touch stuck with Pluto dragging the anchor in the background, which often leads to seemingly unresolvable stalemates with those close to you. Learning to accept what you can’t change is one of the tough lessons of Pluto. Once you accept the way things are, they can improve; Mars in Libra will help since it gives you courage and energy. Keep looking ahead and planning the future you want for yourself, whether your partner comes with you or not.’

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

‘Cancer is the ultimate family sign – especially for mothers, as you will worry more than most. As Saturn is in Scorpio (your chart area of children), you do feel weighed down a bit – that’s around ’til late this year. But with Saturn, you usually get the results in the last third, which should be mid-year onwards. You’ll see then that your efforts have paid off.’

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

‘Leo are heading for good things. Try to enjoy quiet moments before July, after which you’ll bounce out into a new cycle of good luck and higher confidence. Work hard to sort matters out at home, both practically and in terms of any emotional tensions. May onwards is a good time to push yourself out to be more assertive and demand attention at work and elsewhere. From October onwards, you’ll want more time at home.’

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

‘Virgos are having some odd ‘there but not there’ relationships at the moment, what with Neptune hanging around – not really good for commitment or pinning down. At the best of times, Virgo is extra fussy and often takes a long while to settle. But you’re good at protecting yourself from unwanted advances so if you don’t like him, just freeze him out.’

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

‘Libra are feeling good and are attracting compliments and admiration at work and elsewhere. You’ll make lots of new friends after mid-year. Sorting out finances is a must! It’s not easy for an extravagant Libra but you need to get your long term security sorted out. Close relationships are in a rollercoaster phase, switching on and off. You really need to have space to suit yourself and closeness when you want it – partners need to feel the same or it’ll be tricky.’

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

‘Scorpio, like Taurus, are in an Eclipse year, so sorting out relationship dilemmas from May to the autumn is important. Make adjustments where necessary – you’ll be more independent from October onwards, wanting to make your own decisions. You’ll be generally enthusiastic ’til July and then successful at work or out in community activities.’

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

‘Sagittarius are turning a corner into better times. More generosity should be coming your way from the universe ’til mid-year. It doesn’t mean you won’t have to work hard – indeed, from spring onwards, you’ll really be buckling down to do more – so looking after health is important. You’ll be more enthusiastic from August onwards, but you’ll also want more quiet time from October. Money needs care since you’ll tend to be rather impulsive.’

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

‘Capricorns do have a bad habit of settling for less than they deserve. Sometimes they follow their head too much and don’t listen to their hearts. From now ’til mid-year you’ll be keen to back away from relationships which have no potential for the time ahead. Thereafter you’ll find that positive emotional changes move you into a different space, which is where you’re more likely to find someone who is able to give you what you need.’

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

‘Aquarius are taking their blinkers off to see there are more possibilities around than they expected. Thinking positively is the key to making progress. There will certainly be hard work, and you’ll be pretty busy making changes at home from May ’til October, finding new friends towards the end of the year. You’ll generally make better and closer relationships in the second half of the year.’

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

‘Pisces are a hugely sensitive sign – you tend to soak in what’s going on around you. If you can separate yourself a bit from other people, and stop reading the news, you’ll give yourself a safe place just for you to feel better. Think of what makes you feel good – music, movies, nature – then schedule that into your daily life. Thinking positively is a bit of a cliché, but it does work. If you don’t feel it then fake it! Force yourself to smile. Think of what blessings there are in your life. And keep doing that. It will eventually sink in – even if circumstances are difficult, you can be happy in spite of them.’
