Aries | March 20 – April 18
No Aries minds a bit of luck, even if it’s disruptive. The real problem is taking advantage of what’s arisen would mean conducting an in depth reorganisation of certain elements of your work or daily routine. Unappealing as the idea is, the results will more than justify the effort required.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
In early January fiery Mars moved into the portion of your chart that accents close links in your personal or working life, or both. Since then, certain issues have been inescapable. Should these tensions boil over, address them frankly. You’ll be amazed how much you’re able to put to rest.
Gemini | May 20 – June 19
Late last December your ruler Mercury staged the first of three alliances with the uncompromisingly truthful Pluto. This exposed difficult but crucial facts. Now, in late January, they meet again, twice. Knowing that, prepare yourself for yet more revelations and the serious but amazingly profitable discussions that follow.
Cancer | June 20 – July 21
There’s knowing somebody’s been mistaken, and then there’s getting them to admit it. While usually this wouldn’t matter, these errors could influence decisions that would, in turn, have an impact on your own plans. If they’re denying there’s a problem, don’t argue. Instead, simply ensure whatever you organise is flexible.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
While you can understand why certain individuals have a need to keep personal or emotional issues under wraps, being secretive about practical matters makes no sense to you. Yet this is exactly what you’re facing. Raise this, but carefully. Once you learn what’s behind their feelings, it will all make sense.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
Are you feeling vulnerable? It’s no surprise. Between your ruler Mercury’s retrograde cycle ending, on Monday, and the heightened feelings triggered by the recent Full Moon, minor challenges could have seemed overwhelming. Out of character as this may be, do the minimum. You’ll soon realise most of those concerns aren’t that important.
Libra | September 22 – October 21
Others may be eager to tackle persistent domestic or family issues and you too want to put them to rest. The real problem is, certain individuals aren’t ready to delve into the facts, which makes serious discussion impossible. Be tough. Say you’re happy to talk, but not until they’re fully prepared.
Scorpio | October 22 – November 20
Although most Scorpios have a stubborn streak, when you care about something or somebody, you can be amazingly selfless. Yet now, with the planet of ego, Mars, in Scorpio until early March, you’ll be facing a range of situations, small and large, in which you’ve no choice but to put yourself first.
Sagittarius | November 21 – December 20
On the surface, it undoubtedly seems somebody who you trusted has let you down. But as you’re aware, it’s been a tricky time for everybody and even more, there’s been a lot of confusion. Before you draw any conclusions, therefore, ask a few questions. What you learn will explain a great deal.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 19
Long ago you learnt that when you’re short of facts but cornered by tricky circumstances, an aggressive approach can achieve wonders. It puts others on the defensive, which, in turns, means they’ll reveal more than would otherwise be the case. Whether that information is accurate will be quite another matter.
Aquarius | January 20 – February 18
When Mercury was retrograde, you could blame it for the complications you’ve been facing. Although it’s now moving forward, it’s still positioned in the most strategic potion of your chart, and stirring up perplexing, if not frustrating, dilemmas. Challenging as defining them may be, once you do, the rest will be easy.
Pisces | February 19 – March 19
If you’re feeling restless, it’s no surprise. On 3 January the energetic Mars moved into one of the most inquisitive portions of your chart and remains there until early March. This is the perfect time to broaden your horizons via exploring new ideas, meeting new people, study or visiting unfamiliar settings.
