Aries | March 20 – April 19
Most who know you well would assume you’ve no problem saying a firm ‘no’ when the situation requires. While usually that’s true, there are one or two individuals who’re able to bend your will. You know who they are. Unless you’re careful, they could easily compromise your judgement.
Taurus | April 20 – May 20
For ages you’ve been tactfully sidestepping several potentially troublesome issues. Thus far, you’ve managed to avoid discussing them. While that may have seemed a victory, now that events are bringing these to a head, discussions will need to go back to the beginning. Still, it will be worth the effort.
Gemini | May 21 – June 20
As an inquisitive Gemini, you’ll hear about new ideas and rethink what you’ve arranged, often several times. It happens every day. But now, somebody you care about is reorganising plans, and you’re anxious. Worse, this is one of those times when you can’t really ask what’s behind those changes.
Cancer | June 21 – July 22
That you want guarantees the promises you’re being offered are reliable is wise. However, the planetary setup, now and over the coming weeks, indicates that even the simplest of plans will change, and change again. Knowing that, you’re better off adopting an easygoing attitude, one that views the unexpected as an opportunity.
Leo | July 23 – August 22
Some say they don’t notice the heightened feelings triggered by the lunar cycle. While you sometimes insist they’ve no power over you, there’s no denying the influence of the current Full Moon. Of even greater significance, this has made you realise how important certain people and passions are to you.
Virgo | August 23 – September 22
Almost every Virgo has spent time holding the hand of friends or loved ones who were struggling with dramas. But when it’s you who’s facing difficulties, you’ll often refuse to admit it. Now, however, you’re urged to, if only so you can benefit from the very helpful ideas of others.
Libra | September 23 – October 22
There’s no easy way around the obstacles you’re facing. Or at least that’s how it seems now. By early May, however, sudden changes will turn even seemingly impossible situations to your advantage. Knowing that, for now, do the minimum. Others may object, but you can trust instincts that say it’s wise.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
What began as a minor misunderstanding has blown up into a lengthy, and complex, conversation about a number of problems. Inevitably, the resulting discussions are both demanding and uncomfortable. Still, the effort required is more than justified by your increased understanding of others and, as important, the issues you clear up.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 21
Between the current unsettling Full Moon and Mercury being retrograde, from the 28th, things are unlikely to go as anticipated. Knowing that, you’ll develop an easygoing approach to life. While this is no problem for you, it’s inevitable certain individuals will be far more uptight about those twists and turns.
Capricorn | December 22 – January 19
As a Capricorn, your ability to eliminate problems by the sheer force of your will is extraordinary. Yet that doesn’t actually eliminate anything, it only creates a distance between you and those difficulties. Now, begin to acknowledge the source of certain of these issues. It’s how you can end them for good.
Aquarius | January 20 – February 17
Although Mercury doesn’t actually go retrograde until the 28th, you’re already dealing with its influence, at least when it comes to plans for late April and most of May. While, obviously, not everything you’ve organised will come undone, ensure arrangements are flexible and should changes be necessary, you’ll make them easily.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
It’s time for a celebration. While you’ve noted progress in several seemingly insurmountable matters, you haven’t actually stopped to give yourself, and those involved, a pat on the back. This variety of acknowledgment both gives you a sense of accomplishment and fuels your enthusiasm to continue with other plans or projects.
