Aries | March 20 – April 19
You’re capable of being a good listener and, in fact, when interested can be amazingly attentive. But now you’re in a hurry, so it’s another matter entirely. While you may already have figured out what’s best, at least take notice of others’ ideas. They may be more worthwhile than you anticipate.
Taurus | April 20 – May 20
Usually it’s others who’re hasty, and you who insists they gather facts and think things through. Yet you’re so enthusiastic about one particular plan or, perhaps, passion, you’re ignoring even very significant facts. Delve into these before you’re any more deeply involved, and while you can if necessary back out.
Gemini | May 21 – June 20
As much as you enjoy a lively exchange of ideas, when you’re preoccupied or have pressing obligations, you’ve a talent for brushing off those who’re attempting to distract you. Now, however, the individuals in question are worth at least listening to, as they could have access to information you’d find useful.
Cancer | June 21 – July 22
One of this week’s dominant themes is teamwork. Even those who aren’t obliged to pull together on certain plans or projects will do exactly that. But by no means will that cooperative mood be universal. On the contrary, those who’re so helpful in some matters could be actively obstructive in others.
Leo | July 23 – August 22
Since early in the year the powerful Mars has accented the structure of your life. Since then you’ve reviewed your work and domestic setup, extensively and in detail. Yet you’ve left certain matters undecided. Tackle them right away, ideally before early August, when Mars departs this portion of your chart for good.
Virgo | August 23 – September 22
While there are certain matters others are prepared, if not eager, to discuss, several are off limits. Pressing as these seem, you’re urged to put off conversations until later in the month. On 30 July your ruler Mercury moves into Virgo, which both clears your mind and boosts your confidence.
Libra | September 23 – October 22
After an unpredictable and frequently unsettling couple of weeks, you’re permanently on edge. While that’s understandable, you can relax. The planetary mood is far more benevolent, which means those once inescapable complications simply vanish. Now, in fact, seemingly impossible situations will fall into place, and with little effort on your part.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
Any discussion of this week means reviewing late June’s stunning alliance between fortunate Jupiter and your ruler Pluto, and the unsettling developments this triggered. Since then you’ve attempted to making lasting decisions, but with limited success. Finally, you’re realising that’s because certain longstanding arrangements must go. That time has come.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 21
The last thing you’re in the mood to do is tackle tedious financial or business matters. However, judging by the combined influence of the Full Moon and tricky planetary activity, what you ignore now will only become more complicated and more costly. The faster you take action, the better.
Capricorn | December 22 – January 19
Don’t be surprised if those closest, at home or in relationships out in the world, seem to need to talk things over. While you regard tricky matters as done and dealt with, they’re questioning ‘how’ and ‘why’. Pointless as this seems initially, you’ll soon recognise the benefits of further discussion.
Aquarius | January 20 – February 17
When you were actually living through the past week’s misunderstandings and clashes, it wasn’t much fun. Yet now that you’re looking back on what you dealt with and learnt, your irritation has turned to gratitude. So much that you’re wondering whether you bypassed any vital points. It’s worth doing a little investigation.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
True, the Full Moon brings feelings to a head, and can be unsettling. This is particularly the case with the recent one. Still, what you learnt about others, their plans and priorities and, even more, about crucial situations, more that justifies the emotional ups and downs you had to deal with.
