Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
Tempting as it is to clear the air by saying exactly what’s on your mind, those whose advice you trust say to wait. So you are, but it’s not easy. Frustrating as this is, remain silent until others raise the issues in question and your position will be considerably stronger.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Now that your ruler Venus has moved to accent joint ventures, it’s time to talk over several persistent but tricky issues involving others. In some cases these will arise without you saying a word. But, ironically, you may need to raise and encourage frank discussion about those that matter most.
Gemini | May 20 – June 19
While you’ve no problem saying farewell to certain plans that were once exciting, others disagree with you. Tempting as it is, possibly in response to their request, think twice. Things aren’t working because there’s a serious flaw in those plans. Sympathise but stop there. You’d regret getting involved.
Cancer | June 20 – July 21
There are few things more satisfying than settling matters involving crucial elements of your life. While you thought you’d done exactly that, events or the questions of others are making you wonder if a review wouldn’t be wise. Possibly. It may not lead to changes but, equally, it could.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
As much as you enjoy hearing what others are up to, discussing your plans and exchanging ideas about new ventures, there’s been far too much talk and not enough action. You’ll be relieved, therefore, that your ruler the Sun’s move to accent your domestic and working life will kickstart welcome changes.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
When you organised certain arrangements, a week or so ago, while things seemed straightforward, your instincts said otherwise. Which is the reason you ensured those plans were flexible. Now that the first of this week’s twists and turns have arisen, you’re benefitting from trusting those feelings over seemingly reliable facts.
Libra | September 22 – October 21
Obviously life would be easier if you could put certain tricky issues to rest. The real problem is they’ve been unacknowledged for so long, you’re unsure how to raise and discuss these. Forget about finding the right time. Others know these are important and will be relieved you brought them up.
Scorpio | October 22 – November 20
In early October the communication planet Mercury moved into the most strategic portion of your chart, triggering a cycle that’s been as much about what you don’t say as what you do. Now that it’s finally in Scorpio, you’ll be able to clear up confusion about several issues, past and present.
Sagittarius | November 21 – December 20
It’s unlike you to give up in the face of obstacles or opposition. However, that’s exactly what you’re encouraged to do in at least one, if not several, tricky situations. The more you battle to keep them going, the more problems you’ll find. Letting go of these clears the way for far better options.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 19
The recent encounter between the volatile Mars and Pluto, in Capricorn, takes place only every two years, so is as rare as it is powerful. And because it’s all about standing your ground yet being as forthright as possible, what you say, discuss and decide could transform your thinking about certain matters.
Aquarius | January 20 – February 18
Having discussed several tricky issues on the domestic front, both with those involved and understanding friends, you’d think there’d have been at least a little progress. But there’s been none. Be patient. Things are coming together, if slowly. By the week’s close you’ll know exactly what needs to be done.
Pisces | February 19 – March 19
Watching arrangements you worked hard to organise come undone is as frustrating as it is disappointing. Yet your instincts are correctly telling you that what’s on its way out was only a dress rehearsal. An experiment. Know that, in letting go of hopes or plans, you’ll be clearing the way for something better.
