Aries | March 20 – April 18
Sometimes obstacles are no more than mere difficulties to be overcome. However, during this week of review, these offer an opportunity to examine certain arrangements and consider whether they still have a place in your life. You might discover you’re benefitting little but they remain out of habit more than anything else.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
While the presence of the communication planet Mercury in Taurus will both boost your spirits and lead to exciting discussions, resist the temptation to turn those ideas into commitments. Intriguing as what you’ve learnt may be, the circumstances in question are still in flux, so much that plans simply wouldn’t last.
Gemini | May 20 – June 19
For ages you’ve been sidestepping certain tricky matters. While you haven’t exactly looked forward to discussing them, you’ve also been short of facts. Now you’ve no choice but to deal with these. Bizarrely, once you begin talking them over, you’ll realise that others had the information you needed all along.
Cancer | June 20 – July 21
As you’ve probably already noticed, everything’s in transition. This isn’t just about the far-reaching changes everybody’s been discussing. With so much movement taking place in the skies, even relatively simple arrangements here on earth are unlikely to last as you intended. View them as temporary. That’s exactly what they will be.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
Nobody would blame you for being annoyed about setbacks in plans you’ve worked hard to make happen. While ordinarily you’d battle to overcome these, it’s worth actually investigating the issues in question. Tackle these now, while they’re still minor, and you’ll deal with them fully and finally, and without much effort.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
While you’ve probably already tried numerous ways to improve on persistently tricky situations, you’ve come to the conclusion they require a top to bottom rethink. Begin now, by giving serious consideration to what doesn’t work in great depth. Then, as potential changes arise, you’ll already know what’s worth responding to and what isn’t.
Libra | September 22 – October 21
Sometimes minor disagreements are no more than that. However, certain seemingly simple issues go back a long way, so will take considerable time, and discussion, to untangle. Still, not only will it be worth the effort, what you learn in the process will clear up confusion in other matters as well.
Scorpio | October 22 – November 20
Although the events triggered by clashes between Mercury and your ruler Pluto, last week, and now between the Sun and Pluto are aggravating, they’ll lead to powerful insights. The trick is to delve into these situations in depth. What you learn will provide answers for questions you’ve long been struggling with.
Sagittarius | November 21 – December 20
A month ago the planet of energy, ego and courage, Mars, moved into Sagittarius. This began a lengthy period of review, challenges, decisions and action. Urgent as things seem, with Mars in this position until late May, you’ve plenty of time to explore your options and refine your future plans.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 19
Nobody objects to the idea of opportunities that are as unexpected as they are exciting. However, those currently coming your way could prove inconvenient, if only because they’ll mean rethinking certain longstanding arrangements. Still, those now surfacing hold so much promise they’re worth a bit of disruption.
Aquarius | January 20 – February 18
By no means are you secretive. Still, it never occurred to you others would want to know about or take part in exploring new ventures and potential changes. While certain individuals are merely intrigued, a few think they’ve a right to be involved. Whether that’s the case or not is your decision.
Pisces | February 19 – March 19
As a Piscean, you’d rather pay somebody’s way than put them in an awkward position. However, certain unscrupulous individuals are taking advantage of this generosity. It’s time you clearly, and firmly, drew the line. They may not say anything, but the change in their behaviour will confirm that they got the message.
