Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
Judging by the clash between the Sun and the inventive Uranus, which is actually positioned in Aries, you’re in a creative frame of mind but, alas, others are in no mood to experiment. If you’re convinced your ideas are worth pursuing, take it slowly. It’s the only way to avoid pointless dramas.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Last week your ruler Venus moved to join fiery Mars in accenting friends, colleagues and even neighbours. This began a cycle as sociable as, often, it will be perplexing. Those questions will be roused by encounters with individuals who’re interesting but seem strange. That’s the point. They’re there to broaden your horizons.
Gemini | May 20 – June 19
Hopefully you had the wisdom to stay out of disagreements that really weren’t yours to deal with. While, during less stressful periods you could safely express your views, it would have been colossolly unwise. If you did, be prepared to apologise, because inevitably, you’ll have upset somebody. And do it now.
Cancer | June 20 – July 21
The bizarre range of difficulties you’re facing could be blamed on the coming Cancer Full Moon. But it’s not until Thursday, and those around you are struggling just as much. Tackle these issues together and, not only will you put those matters to rest, you’ll also strengthen ties with others.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
As much of a relief as the revelations triggered by the recent encounter between your ruler the Sun and truthful Pluto may have been, you’ll need time to think some of them through. Yet these need to be discussed. Do so, mentioning you want to reflect on these. The odds are good others will agree.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
Although every sign has been influenced by Mercury’s retrograde cycle, which has just concluded, the fact it’s your ruler has meant you’ve struggled a bit more than others. And it means you’ll need longer to undo some of the past weeks’ confusion. Be patient. Soon things will be back to normal.
Libra | September 22 – October 21
Last week your ruler Venus moved to join fiery Mars in accenting certain tricky obligations. For ages you’ve been trying to eliminate these, but without feeling guilty. Now, with this powerful planetary duo backing you up, you should be able to discuss these frankly and reach an arrangement everybody’s happy with.
Scorpio | October 22 – November 20
Don’t be surprised if suddenly you have to address certain issues. As a Scorpio you tend to keep concerns to yourself until circumstances force them out in the open. That’s exactly what the recent link between the Sun and your ruler Pluto has done. Discuss these now, and as frankly as possible.
Sagittarius | November 21 – December 20
By no means are you secretive. Yet, equally, you dislike being questioned about matters you regard as nobody’s business but your own. But this is exactly what you’ve faced recently. As irritating as the experience was, you’re just now beginning to realise how much you learnt from the issues raised.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 19
Expect a week of insights, discoveries and changes in plan. Not only has Mercury’s retrograde cycle just concluded, which means you’ll learn the source of certain puzzling errors, on Thursday it moves into Capricorn. Not only will your mind be clearer, that clarity will enable you to discuss those issues frankly.
Aquarius | January 20 – February 18
Sometimes disagreements are best either sidestepped or, if that won’t work, dealt with as swiftly as possible. Judging by the current clash between the Sun and your ruler Uranus, however, these aren’t just of significance, the time you invest in talking issues through in depth will be hugely, and unexpectedly, rewarding.
Pisces | February 19 – March 19
It’s easy to ignore questionable statements of others that make it sound like you’re responsible for problems that were entirely the result of their carelessness. Tempting as it is to hope nobody else heard these, they’ll have been said with precisely that intent. Speak up now, while you can do so easily.
