Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
Now that both your ruler Mars and Venus, which accents both close relationships and, through its rulership of Taurus, what you earn and own, you’ll have a lot on your mind. However, what’s most important is ensuring changes you’ve merely been talking about turn into plans, and those into action.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Ordinarily, the idea of organising arrangements once, and thinking through everything in detail, would be wise. However, with the foundation on which these would be based shifting constantly for the coming month, your priority is to ensure plans are flexible enough to ride out even the most unanticipated of developments.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
You’re by no means narrow-minded. Yet you’ve completely ignored certain ideas or offers, and solely because they’re unappealing. Ask a few questions and then, even more, do a little research and you’ll discover you’re not only short of facts, you’re wrong. The good news is, there’s still time to make changes.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
Appealing as the phrase ‘finalising plans’ may be, you’d regret forcing ideas into any form of lasting arrangement. While that may be convenient for you and would make others happy, too, judging by the coming weeks’ planetary activity, there’ll be plenty of changes before anything’s settled for good.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
Although every sign will be influenced by February’s two eclipses, because the first, in a week’s time, is in Leo, you’ll already be aware dramatic changes are brewing. For now, get involved but steer clear of solid plans or decisions. This is just the beginning of an exciting, if unsettling, period.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
There’s a difference between the decisions you’re making now, which are being planned during a dynamic but unsettled period, and those that will be lasting. Since it’s unlikely you’ll make the latter until the pivotal Virgo Full Moon, in mid-March, there’s no reason to bother with detailed arrangements now.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
While you’ve achieved a lot over the past several weeks, it’s cost you in terms of time and energy. It’s no surprise, therefore, that you need a break. The move by the ideas planet Mercury, to accent life’s pleasures, on Tuesday, promises that. Until then, focus on tying up any loose ends.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
No Scorpio is happy with the idea of having to make tentative plans. Because you put so much time and thought, and often heart, into even the simplest of arrangements, you expect them to last. Yet judging by the coming weeks’ planetary setup, changes are inevitable, and in a number of situations.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
Progress is always welcome and, better yet, exciting. Yet you sometimes forget that, as you progress, certain familiar elements of your life must change, if not go. Instead of making decisions about these changes at the last minute, recognise this about editing your life. You’ll find that you rather enjoy it.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
Only days ago, you were wrestling with changes you regarded as not only a nuisance, but felt they’d be risky. Yet now you’ve not only been drawn into exploring these developments, the more you learn, the more excited you’re becoming. This isn’t just thrilling, it’s a very real breakthrough.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
Facts may be facts. But as an Aquarius and, therefore, somebody who has a gift for knowing how best to address even very contentious situations, you’d rather not confront certain individuals with the hard facts. While the diplomatic approach you’ve chosen may work, keep those facts handy. You might need them.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
Sometimes what you don’t say is more important than the ideas you discuss, the plans you make or the issues you talk about. And this is one of those times. Several pivotal elements of your life are in transition. Focus on getting these settled first, then turn your attention to those plans and ideas.
