Aries | March 20 – April 19
While there’s no way around certain increasingly tense issues involving others, you’re better off ignoring them. Ordinarily you’d regard this as being irresponsible. However, by quietly doing nothing now, you force the individuals in question either to do what they can or offer the information you require and, perhaps, their support.
Taurus | April 20 – May 20
In mid-February, both your ruler Venus and the ideas planet Mercury reach the midheaven angle of your chart, which accents the structure of your life. Ideally, you’ll put off crucial decisions until then. In the meanwhile, focus on exploring your options so when it’s time to move, you’ll be well informed.
Gemini | May 21 – June 20
Over the next few days, you’ll realise that you need to rethink certain elements of your life. This is where you’ll acknowledge how resistant you are to making changes, and that some activities have become deeply ingrained habits. But, actually, that’s the point. They’re holding you back, though you don’t see it.
Cancer | June 21 – July 22
There’s no way around differences involving close ties, in your personal or professional life. Ordinarily, you’d take it slowly, gradually encouraging them to explore options that, only recently, they refused flat. Now you owe it to them and yourself to say exactly what you think and want. Nothing less.
Leo | July 23 – August 22
Ages ago, you vowed to yourself that you’d never let go of certain arrangements you struggled to make happen. Yet now, to your surprise, you’re beginning to recognise these must come to an end. Shocking as this is, it’s also a relief. These have become more of a burden than a joy.
Virgo | August 23 – September 22
Tempting as it is to argue points with those who insist on making changes you regard as unnecessary, ask what’s behind their thinking. With things moving so swiftly, even at your canniest, you’re likely to have missed certain developments, some crucial. Once you’re actually talking them over, you’ll be amazed how much you learn.
Libra | September 23 – October 22
For you, as a Libra, saying a flat, non-negotiable
no is nearly impossible. Not only is it forthright, and just plain blunt, it leaves little room for discussion. But for the situation in question, there’s no more to be said. Which means this seemingly abrupt manner is your best option.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
Although it’s the rare Scorpio who actually enjoys battling it out with others, you have to admit that a good argument does wonders to clear the air. Knowing that, should you sense one brewing, you might want to take a deep breath, put on your boxing gloves, and get involved in the fray.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 21
It’s easy for you, as a forward thinking fire sign, to forget that striding into the future, as you’re currently doing, inevitably means leaving elements of the past behind. Take time now to consider what must go, and make the necessary changes before your attention is swept away by new developments.
Capricorn | December 22 – January 19
The moment has come to assess how wisely you use your resources. While, as an earth sign, you can be amazingly canny, even you have blind spots. Review your concerns now. This prepares you for next Monday’s New Moon, which accents such matters and brings a timely fresh perspective.
Aquarius | January 20 – February 17
There’s a difference between making final decisions, which you’re under pressure to do, and making the variety of decisions that are tentative. With circumstances shifting nearly every day, you should you ensure what you arrange is the latter. Others will soon realise how wise you were to allow for things to be flexible.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
Situations with certain individuals have become so fraught you’ve no idea what to say or do. Fortunately, events are about to take these matters in hand, in the form of developments so different from those anybody expected, you’ll be forced to work together. That will change everything, and overnight.
