Marjorie Orr shares her astrological expertise


She accurately predicted Prince William’s wedding date and Liz Hurley’s marriage split, and last week renowned astrologist Marjorie Orr joined us on Facebook to answer your questions! (She was even kind enough to stay for a second hour to answer even more 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 21 – April 19)

‘Aries are feeling that the universe is a less generous place than usual. This may seem unfair but it is a time when having to cope makes you stronger and more ingenious. It won’t last forever but it isn’t disappearing too quickly. What the Eclipses say is you have to make an effort to change things. Don’t wait for your luck to change, change it yourself. That sounds hard but there will be a way to improve your situation and gradually over coming months. Especially in May you’ll find that you can make a real difference and give yourself more security.’

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

‘Taurus are in the midst of two years of Solar Eclipses which really point to a crossroads. You are being challenged to decide where you go from here on in – which Taurus hates since it really doesn’t like change and would much prefer to keep walking the same road.’

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

‘Geminis are having quite a tough time with sudden jolts and changes and feeling stuck all at the same time. Happily there are new friends coming into your life and cross fingers more money coming soon. So although it may not all resolve overnight you will use your ingenuity to find a way through. Gemini is a very bright sign and quick witted.’

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

‘Cancerians are in a push n’ pull phase with close relationships with more jealousy or even power struggles around. It sometimes gets kind of deep and heavy. Bit bumpy over the next few days and again the final days of the year over the New Year. Luckily your confidence is high and there are good things happening for you especially mid November. You’ll feel loved ones are a bit more work than you might like or there’s a damper on your social life so you’ll need to push yourself to be livelier. If you feel short on affection then you need to give more.’

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

‘Leos are standing back slightly to regroup and see what comes next so it isn’t a high action time just presently. But don’t think of it as wasted time. Out of quiet moments comes inspiration. Sort out domestic and emotional matters now, keep working hard and from June next year suddenly the sun will shine on you and you’ll be off.’

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

‘Virgo always feels unfairness so deeply. I know because I am one. Virgo wants a perfect world and the reality sadly usually falls short. So sometimes it is about finding a new attitude and not getting so het up about what you can’t do anything about. Virgos are feeling a touch let down on the relationship front at the moment but will over coming months gradually find a way of calming down, re-centring and finding strength in themselves. You may not get justice outside but you’ll find strength inside. Virgo is more hopeful and positive thinking usually brings results. Maybe you need to look further afield or in a different area if you’re Virgo.’

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

‘Libra are possibly having a bumpier ride even than other signs since the disruptive Uranus Pluto square has been bouncing off your Sun. I’m afraid it won’t disappear instantly. There’s another upheaval within a few days and more over the holiday season. Not Libra’s idea of heaven since it likes balance and harmony. Just keep going with the flow even if it feels like a roller coaster. Luckily Jupiter at your mid-heaven at the moment should bring you good things, praise , promotion etc to make up for the humps and bumps.’

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

‘Scorpio like Taurus are in the eye of the Eclipses thro’ this year and next. Last and next May’s Taurus Eclipses say you could well find the kind of relationship you are seeking if you open up to change. Long running relationships may get a shake up since you won’t want to make the old compromises anymore. Just don’t be too perfectionist. Neptune in Pisces makes you want bliss and real life sadly doesn’t offer it too often. Accepting something more realistic will make you happier than sticking with day dreams which never materialise.’

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

‘Sagittarius are in a strange phase, marginally easier than some signs, with more generosity coming your way cash or otherwise for a few months. But you’re still mulling over what you need to chuck out of your life in terms of old attitudes since you’ll sense that a new phase is starting, not immediately, but you’re in the clearing the decks time now to get ready for what is coming. Just keep an eye on cash, over spending not wise.’

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

‘Capricorn – better relationships over the next few months in the sense that the good ones will get stronger and ones that have no potential for development will slide away with little regret on either side. Changes at home, some of them a touch unsettling, but they will long term give you more elbow room to do as you please. From mid next year more money and really beneficial changes over the year thereafter, financially and emotionally.’

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

‘Aquarius – I remember once hearing a top athlete saying that the training never got easier or less painful but they could just do more. Aquarius is a fixed sign and though inventive and keen on experimenting also likes a fairly even furrow to plough in life. You really don’t appreciate the amount of topsy-turvying that is going on at the moment. All you can do is hang on harder to the rail and see where you are heading. You should be feeling healthier with more support around and definitely better relationships from mid next year. So focus on what’s going right and accept that what isn’t right will sort it self eventually.’

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

‘Pisces are struggling a bit with Neptune in their own sign which is a touch lack lustre, friends being tricky and money being more wayward than usual. However if you look hard you’ll find that you do actually have more confidence than in the past which helps not only socially but also at work. Into next year you’ll also be feeling healthier and better supported.’
