Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
True, the Sun’s in the most decisive angle of your chart. If that were all you were dealing with, your ideas would turn into reality overnight. However, at the moment matters are more complicated. In fact, when it comes to making progress, patience and persistence will be essential.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Most Taureans are so easygoing that you’re rarely bothered by the unsettling influence of the Full Moon. However, the current one has others in a state. Not only is there little you can do about that, the resulting rather emotional exchanges could do wonders to explain puzzling situations in the past.
Gemini | May 20 – June 19
This is one of those bizarre weeks during which seemingly simple issues are complicated by others’ emotional ups and downs. The real problem is, because you don’t fully understand why they’re upset, you’d tend to make light of it all. Don’t. This will result in confusion, if not hurt feelings.
Cancer | June 20 – July 21
Every Full Moon both stirs your inner feelings and triggers changes, some unsettling. Yet because this one’s in the sign of Cancer and follows an exciting but disruptive period, things are bound to seem more intense than usual. If so, bear in mind they’ll diminish as the Moon wanes.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
While, as a Leo, you’re passionate by nature and rather enjoy life’s ups and downs, the feelings of vulnerability triggered by the current emotionally intense Full Moon are quite another matter. Challenging as dealing with these are, what you learn more than justifies any temporary feelings of anxiety or doubt.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
This is one of those tricky weeks during which both events and others’ decisions trigger sudden changes. While, logically, you might try to restrict their effects, once you’re viewing these in retrospect, you’ll recognise them as breakthroughs. The more you explore, the more swiftly you’ll realise how true this is.
Libra | September 22 – October 21
For ages you’ve been thinking about potential changes in your domestic or working life, but haven’t known where to begin. The events triggered by the current Full Moon, which accents these, won’t just clarify what needs to be done, they’ll kick-start the process. Once you’re moving, the rest will be easy.
Scorpio | October 22 – November 20
When you first decided not to mention certain potentially provocative matters, you were confident it wouldn’t matter to anybody else. Now that you’ve discovered these are of significance to certain individuals, tell them all you can. Talk things over frankly, covering every point and, even more important, answer all their questions.
Sagittarius | November 21 – December 20
Unappealing as the idea of spending time adding up columns of numbers and figuring out your costs may be, you really must review how you manage your life. This doesn’t just have to do with your finances but, equally, how wisely you budget your time and, bizarrely, even your affections.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 19
Sooner or later you’ll have to confront one particular individual about their increasingly difficult attitude. While you’ve no fear of forthright battles, the person in question can be capricious, if not completely illogical. Knowing that, forget about discussions. Instead, make it clear what you expect from them, no more.
Aquarius | January 20 – February 18
Certain individuals have a talent for blaming others for problems or, often, errors that were entirely their fault. While you’ll usually ignore this, at the moment you not only need to confront them about one particular situation, and openly. Say nothing, and you’ll be blamed for mistakes that you had nothing to do with.
Pisces | February 19 – March 19
The tides of your feelings are familiar. As you’ve undoubtedly noticed since early this week, being in the run up to Thursday’s emotionally intense Full Moon has brought these to the surface. There’s a lot to be learnt from them. Discuss those that involve others and reflect on the rest in depth.
