Your stars today

Aries | March 20 – April 18



It’s a busy week, so busy that you’d have every excuse to cancel various arrangements with friends and loved ones. However, you’ve done this once too often recently and certain individuals are, quite rightly, getting fed up. Besides, those seemingly pressing matters aren’t nearly as urgent as you think they are.

Taurus | April 19 – May 19



Don’t be shy about saying a grateful ‘yes’ to offers. While some may not be unexpected, others will be a complete surprise. So much so, you could easily refuse them unthinkingly. For now, therefore, make a policy of saying yes to everything, at least until you’ve time to investigate what’s actually involved.

Gemini | May 20 – June 19



While you can’t plan for the unexpected, you can organise things so that when surprises arise, you’re ready for them. Bear this in mind now, in the run up to your ruler Mercury’s retrograde cycle, which begins on the 30th. The more flexible your arrangements, the more easily you can rethink them.

Cancer | June 20 – July 21



Ordinarily you’d investigate the facts before getting involved in intriguing ideas or sudden offers. However, with things moving swiftly, you’re better off going ahead now but ensuring others are aware that, at some point, you’ll need to check out the facts and may, as a result, want to make some changes.

Leo | July 22 – August 21



Most Leos will happily stand their ground, confronting those who’re unfair and, as much, those whose attacks have been personal. Now, however, the matters in question are more complex, and you’ll need to gather facts. Tedious as this is, it’s vital if you want to put a stop to others’ antics.

Virgo | August 22 – September 21



While planning ahead is a virtue, between now and the Virgo New Moon, on Thursday 1 September, you’re urged to regard everything you organise as tentative. That may sound an extreme statement. However, changes in both your own circumstances and your existing priorities could mean rethinking all sorts of arrangements.

Libra | September 22 – October 21



Every once in a while an opportunity as thrilling as it is unexpected comes from out of the blue. Not only does the encounter between your ruler Venus and fortunate Jupiter indicate this is likely, the odds are good your past efforts will pay off, and far better than you’d imagined possible.

Scorpio | October 22 – November 20



Although Mercury’s retrograde cycle doesn’t actually begin until the 30th, it would be no surprise if you weren’t already dealing with certain mix-ups related to this period. Not only is a preview of this nature not uncommon, the period when it commences and ends can be the most disruptive of all.

Sagittarius | November 21 – December 20



Sometimes ideas or offers are so thrilling you know you must say yes, even before you’ve asked any questions. Understandably, others are anxious about these seemingly impulsive commitments. Simply explain to them the current link between Venus and your ruler Jupiter is so good, nothing could possibly go wrong.

Capricorn | December 21 – January 19



Usually, when somebody seeks your advice, the best strategy is first to ask about both circumstances and where the individual in question stands. They may already have made a decision, and are simply seeking confirmation it’s wise. Bizarrely, as you listen, they’ll come to that conclusion on their own.

Aquarius | January 20 – February 18



You’ve no problem with the idea of letting go of longstanding plans. However, you’re under pressure to either take certain arrangements to the next stage or say farewell to them. While these were once as promising as you think they are, times have changed. Enough you’re urged to reconsider your stance.

Pisces | February 19 – March 19



Both kindness and generosity come naturally to you. So much so you’ll often unwittingly ignore a loving gesture or offer from another because you’re so focused on giving. For now, reverse the flow. This may be more difficult than you’d imagine. Still, it will do wonders for your relations with those closest.
