Aries | March 20 – April 18
By no means are you secretive. Yet you sometimes sidestep tricky issues because you know even mentioning them will lead to a lengthy and pointless discussion. Despite that, certain matters need to be talked over. The secret is to outline the topics that require attention and focus on them, and them alone.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
There are few things more disheartening than facing obstacles that are unfair or dealing with those who refuse to discuss what’s behind their uncooperative attitude. Whatever the case, and situations of this nature are likely in several settings, say the minimum. Once you know more, everything else will make sense.
Gemini | May 20 – June 19
While you were born under perhaps the most inquisitive sign of the zodiac, certain matters have been uninteresting, if not just plain dull. But don’t write them off yet. Both discussions with others and facts that come from out of the blue will add the sense of excitement that’s been sorely lacking.
Cancer | June 20 – July 21
Sometimes discussing issues with others is important. At the moment, however, it’s about listening and nothing else. One particular individual really needs to talk. In doing so, they’ll both organise their thoughts and clear their mind. Knowing that’s the case, you need do no more than focus attentively on what they say.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
The current New Moon marks a time of stillness. Tempting as it is to force issues, instead, take a serious look at circumstances as they stand, especially those that are moving frustratingly slowly. There’s something to be learnt from these, something that will be as profitable in the future as it is now.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
While the side of your nature that’s ruled by the clever, quick-thinking Mercury will happily consider changing arrangements when the opportunity arises, as a practical earth sign, you’ll often resist the temptation to do anything while short of facts. However, currently experience alone can reveal the details you require.
Libra | September 22 – October 21
The trick to dealing with this rather unsettling period is to do something out of character, and view even the simplest of arrangements as tentative. This may seem a compromise, at least initially. Soon, however, you’ll realise those flexible arrangements allow you to make changes when the need arises.
Scorpio | October 22 – November 20
Change is in the air and you find it worrying. While your reservations about having to rethink, if not substantially alter, certain arrangements are understandable, the current New Moon is about exactly this variety of fresh perspective. Once you begin discussing these, in fact, you’ll exchange concerns for feelings of relief.
Sagittarius | November 21 – December 20
Recent setbacks have brought out your stubborn streak. While it’s true, what’s taken place is unfair, arrangements are by no means as fixed as they seem. Discuss your concerns frankly but briefly. Then give others a chance to reflect on your words. You’ll be amazed how responsive they are.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 19
Some arrangements fade away without much ado. Suddenly you realise you haven’t thought about the plan, project or individual in question for ages. However, currently, certain matters are giving you considerable aggravation. This leaves you no choice but to make it clear to everybody concerned things are coming to an end.
Aquarius | January 20 – February 18
When you made certain decisions some years ago, they were completely logical. Since then, things have changed but these arrangements haven’t. This makes the fresh perspective triggered by the current New Moon especially timely. Once you realise how much things have moved on, you’ll realise your attitude or habits must, as well.
Pisces | February 19 – March 19
It’s only now that circumstances are forcing you to take a stand that you’re recognising how much time you invest in certain relationships, and how little you’re getting in return. While you could mention this, the individuals in question are so selfish they’ll never notice. Simply reorganise your schedule. They’ll get the message.
