“His death was no different from his life — a work of art,” recalls his producer. The parting gift of this extraordinary performing artist, Blackstar, was released a year ago, just two days before he left this world. This week we remember the life and work of the incomparable, David Bowie.

Capricorn: 22 December – 19 January  You know how obsessive you tend to become when there’s something you want, darling Goat. You need extra attention this week, pure and simple, though crossed wires don’t make it easy. Returning to work might do the trick!

 Aquarius 20 January- 18 February  Money literally swims out of your pockets this week, dear Visionary, and worry about how to replenish those funds could keep you tossing and turning at night. A steadying chat with a friend from afar can help you find that rudder.

Pisces: 19 February-20 March  When the love planet moves into your sign this week, our Mermaid turns into a sea sponge, soaking up the vibes of who ever and what ever is in your space. As long as they’re your special people and favourite places, life couldn’t be better.

Aries: 21 March – 19 April  Your antenna are working overtime this week, dear Ram, even if you’re still on holiday. It’s a challenge for a do-er like you not to obsess about what you should be accomplishing. Fortunately there’s someone nearby to help you chill.

 Taurus: 20 April -20 May The temptation to be with friends who’re still in holiday mode continues to be a powerful pull this week, yet the professional realm proves an even stronger attraction. A business trip helps you bow out of the revelry gracefully, and could prove quite beneficial.

Gemini: 21 May – 21 June  A random act of kindness is one thing, but when Venus swims into your professional sphere, it becomes very difficult to say no to anyone or anything. With your ruling planet retrograde until Sunday, postpone any binding decisions, if you can.

Cancer: 22 June – 22 July  Awareness of your environment is self-protective for those born in the sign of the Crab, but there’s wisdom in limiting the media you ingest this week lest you become overwhelmed by all the suffering in the world. Rom-coms provide temporary escape!

Leo: 23 July – 22 August  The Sun couples up with Pluto this week, provoking our Lioness towards ambitious pursuits. Making promises you can’t possibly keep because disappointing others is somehow beneath your dignity is likely to backfire. Save face with realistic alternatives.

 Virgo: 23 August – 22 September Sometimes indulging your nearest and dearest can have unintended consequences. Saying NO doesn’t mean you’re being a party-pooper, darling Virgo. You’re just better than most at assessing a dangerous situation when you see it.

Libra: 23 September – 23 October  Behaving like a despot on the homefront just because you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders is not the best way to enlist support, dearheart. Getting back to healthy habits after the holiday binge may sort you out!

Scorpio 24 October – 22 November  Working from home is an excellent idea if you can enlist the support of your co-workers, darling Phoenix. There are liable to be a million distractions at the office to hinder your concentration on some rather important projects.

Sagittarius: 23 November – 21 December  Scheduling social time with colleagues becomes a jolly segue out of the festive season and into the work-a-day mode. In fact, hosting at your place could make work feel like the continuation of one long party.
