Aries | March 20 – April 19
Most are familiar with Mercury’s retrograde cycle. However, the other planets sometimes move backwards too, as is the case with your ruler Mars, which has been in reverse motion since late May. Expect setbacks, many revealing. Better yet, a few of those will answer questions you’ve long been unable to resolve.
Taurus | April 20 – May 20
It’s not that you’ve been secretive as much as there’s never been the right time to address certain complex matters, so you’ve kept sidestepping them. While that seemed wise at the time, with each passing day the actual situations in question are becoming more complex. The sooner you speak up, the better.
Gemini | May 21 – June 20
Few things are more frustrating than attempting to discuss an important matter with somebody who’s obviously distracted. Yet that’s exactly what you’re dealing with. While this isn’t your usual approach, try being a bit theatrical. Be demanding or, possibly, act upset. That should ensure you’ll get and keep their attention.
Cancer | June 21 – July 22
Next week Venus moves into your sign. Then on the 20th the Sun enters Cancer, starting a powerful cycle. It’s not just about your birthday but a boost to your confidence and energy, combined with a sense of new beginnings. And until then? Focus on decluttering your thinking and your life.
Leo | July 23 – August 22
Ordinarily you’d fight for who and what you believe in, often without giving it a thought. Judging by the current planetary setup, a review is vital. This requires a quick but truthful analysis. You’ll discover that either circumstances have changed or your loyalties have, yet you’re reacting as if they haven’t.
Virgo | August 23 – September 22
Although the New Moon took place last Sunday, and the matters you discussed were exciting, nothing has come of them. That’s no surprise. Intriguing as these may be, either numerous vital details are missing or you’re concerned about potential clashes with others. These will be resolved but not right away.
Libra | September 23 – October 22
Sometimes obstacles are exactly that. However, several of those you’re facing are forcing you to examine situations that are so routine you give them little thought. Not only is it vital you focus on these, once you do, the odds are good you’ll realise changes are timely, if not urgent.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
The presence of the forthright Mars, in Scorpio, is forcing you into examining and acknowledging arrangements that don’t suit you. Admittedly these are timely. But you’ve no idea what to do next. Bizarrely, it’s worth taking a chance on the remarkable, if surprising, developments destiny will be bringing your way.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 21
From your perspective, as a Sagittarius, there are many kinds of plans. While some are meant to be lasting, others are by their nature temporary. But not everybody thinks this way. Knowing that, discuss not only the nature of certain plans but whether they’re short term or expected to endure.
Capricorn | December 22 – January 19
One particular individual seems to be trying to fool you, and they’re succeeding. Or they are, sort of. You sense that something isn’t right, but can’t put your finger on the actual problem. Do a little investigation. With your Capricorn gift for being thorough you’ll get to the bottom of this.
Aquarius | January 20 – February 17
For ages you’ve been avoiding certain matters because you simply haven’t known which way you wanted to go. And, as nothing’s been urgent, there was no pressure to make a decision. Now, however, the pace is picking up, which means you’ll need to do some serious investigation and equally serious thinking.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
For ages there’s been talk of rethinking, if not substantially reorganising, elements of your work or lifestyle. While there’ve been all sort of intriguing ideas to discuss, nothing has come together. Continue exploring your options. By the time of the Full Moon, on the 20th, those changes will be considerably clearer.
