Your stars today


Shelley Von Strunckel April 30, 2016

Aries | March 20 – April 19



It may not seem so now, but opportunity is in the air. In fact, with the Sun about to form a stunning alliance with the fortunate Jupiter, both existing plans and new ideas could work out far better than you imagine possible. Still, you must turn ideas into action and, ideally, swiftly.

Taurus | April 20 – May 20



To most Taureans, the idea of sudden changes isn’t just upsetting, you find yourself worrying about how far-reaching they will be. In this case, however, events aren’t just timely, what’s taking place is nothing short of a breakthrough, although probably not in the form you’d have conceived possible.

Gemini | May 21 – June 20



It may not seem much that’s hopeful is in the air. Within days, however, the fog that’s been obscuring the offers of others or good ideas will lift. While you’ve been aware of these, your information was so limited you didn’t take them seriously. What you learn will revolutionise your thinking.

Cancer | June 21 – July 22



Nobody enjoys having to deal with sudden changes. Still, at the moment even disruptive developments could prove to be of huge benefit, if in the long run. You may already sense the direction in which things are going is good for everybody. Bide your time. Soon others will also begin to recognise that.

Leo | July 23 – August 22



Not only is opportunity in the air, during early May your ruler the Sun forms a series of powerful and positive aspects to several of the planetary heavyweights. This indicates that while your past efforts will bear fruit, better yet, thrilling ideas or offers will appear from out of the blue.

Virgo | August 23 – September 22



While there’s a tendency for everybody, including you, to blame almost everything that goes wrong on your ruler Mercury’s retrograde cycle, which lasts until 22 May. It’s about ideas and communication, nothing more. However, those misunderstandings often touch the rest of your life, thus your assumption it influences everything.

Libra | September 23 – October 22



Now that you ruler Venus has joined the Sun in one of the most practical angles of your chart, events will prompt you to examine how wisely you use your time, money and even your ideas. However strange that seems, begin and you’ll realise that, in certain situations, you’re actually cheating yourself.

Scorpio | October 23 – November 21



Even if you didn’t know that the ideas planet Mercury is retrograde, the confusion you’re facing in certain arrangements would make you suspect it’s the case. Annoying as these errors are, most aren’t really serious. In fact, some will highlight situations that need practical attention, and the sooner, the better.

Sagittarius | November 22 – December 21



Don’t be surprised if sudden events force you to examine plans, even recent ones. Judging by the current powerful planetary setup, every sign is being forced to reconsider even familiar elements of their life and habits. While some of these may need only minor changes, others need to be substantially rethought.

Capricorn | December 22 – January 19



Life may be unsettled now. In fact, certain matters are so confused you’ve no idea how to handle them. Simply focus on discussing them with others and learning as much as you can. This prepares you for the unexpected but welcome changes triggered by the coming week’s stunning planetary activity.

Aquarius | January 20 – February 17



As an air sign, your sharp mind enables you to analyse even complex situations. Yet now the remarkable events or offers coming your way are so amazing they’re beyond reason. Rely on your powerful intuition, however, and you’ll soon understand how worthwhile they are and where they could take you.

Pisces | February 18 – March 19



If your instincts are telling you good fortune is in the air, they’re right. True, you may not spot exactly what’s coming right away. In fact, what’s best could first appear as a serious problem. Knowing that, get involved with everything that arises with an awareness it could lead to something wonderful.
