Aries | March 20 – April 19
It’s rare that an Aries gives up on a plan, idea or hope, however far-fetched others say they are. But it’s been a while and even you are beginning to struggle with doubts. Don’t. True, that miraculous turning point may not be until around the Full Moon, on the 20th, but it is coming.
Taurus | April 20 – May 20
Don’t be surprised if you suddenly find yourself unsure about certain situations in which, only recently, you had strong feelings. This is as much about your own perspective shifting as the circumstances in question. Urgent as things seem, take time reviewing the facts. You’ll be amazed what comes to light.
Gemini | May 21 – June 20
Usually making future plans is easy, especially for you as a Gemini and somebody who has a knack for dealing with minor twists and turns. Still, initially, even you could be confused by the unexpected ideas or offers triggered by Sunday’s Gemini New Moon. Knowing that, ensure any plans are flexible.
Cancer | June 21 – July 22
The time has come to rethink certain arrangements that, until recently, you regarded as stable. Then you realised just how much the foundation on which these are based have changed which means, inevitably, these can’t remain as they are. While you needn’t undertake those changes immediately, begin exploring your options now.
Leo | July 23 – August 22
Every sign is influenced by the clash between your ruler the Sun and tough Saturn. While, mostly, these involve practicalities, you could feel that you’re responsible for what arises and, even more, the resulting difficult decisions. You’re not. If in doubt, discussing this with those you trust will clear your mind.
Virgo | August 23 – September 22
The cycle of changes you’re currently contending with began in late May, with the Full Moon that accented the structure of your life. Since then events have raised questions about numerous arrangements you’ve regarded as a stable part of your life. Once they were. But times have changed and so, too, must these.
Libra | September 23 – October 22
Obstacles of any kind are annoying and can demolish a carefully planned schedule. Yet those you encounter as a result of this week’s powerful aspects to the practical but stern Saturn will prove so informative that gradually you’ll exchange that irritation for fascination with who you’re meeting and what you’re learning.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
Mercury’s retrograde cycle has just ended. While you’re probably well aware of that, you may not realise that Mars, planet of action and courage, which is in Scorpio has just gone retrograde. This, however, isn’t about errors but, rather, giving serious thought to what you did, and didn’t do, in the past.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 21
Sometimes setbacks are no more than that. Those you’re currently facing, however, are forcing you to declutter your life, mostly of commitments and plans that are going nowhere. Still, you’re clinging on to these in the hope they’ll work out. Accepting the fact they won’t isn’t easy, but it’s true.
Capricorn | December 22 – January 19
There’s little point in arguing with somebody who’s already made a decision. You know that but are still trying to convince one particular individual to go along with your plans. Stop, say no more, and busy yourself elsewhere. While this might seem weak now, within days you’ll realise how wise it was.
Aquarius | January 20 – February 17
Tensions involving family or loved ones aren’t easy to live with. However, since neither they nor you had ideas for dealing with these, you’ve had no choice. Be patient. This Sunday’s New Moon will introduce a much needed fresh perspective on these issues. After that, you’ll talk them through without dramas.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
Few things make you happier than being able to enjoy worry-free time with loved ones. But recent difficulties have overshadowed what should have been pleasant moments. Forget about trying to eliminate these. Instead accept the fact that while you can’t get rid of such matters, you can learn how to ignore them.
