Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
One of your strengths is your ability to think and act swiftly. This is especially crucial now, since with the pace speeding up, you’ll need to make decisions fast, if not on the run. While others are wise to insist you consider details, some may need to be made at the last minute.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Although the New Moon was over a week ago, because it accented the structure of your domestic or working life, you won’t necessarily have spotted unsettling events as the timely changes they are. Now that your perspective is clearer, you’re beginning to recognise just how much promise they hold.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
Planning ahead may be a virtue. But judging by February’s two eclipses, even the simplest of arrangements will need to be rethought, if not substantially altered. Knowing that, if you must organise anything, ensure what you set up and what others have in mind is as flexible as possible.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
Looking back on the past few days, you’ll realise just how often you had to rethink plans. While, at the time, these changes were both natural and easy, it’s mostly because arrangements were flexible. With changes continuing, ensure future plans are just as easy to rethink, if not change dramatically.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
The last thing you’re in the mood to do is go back over differences that, only recently, blossomed into serious clashes. While you’d rather forget about these, not only are the circumstances in question changing, those involved have a far more flexible attitude than they did, only days ago.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
Every once in a while you need to take a break. This isn’t about a cup of tea or coffee, but a couple of days away from your routine. It’s time to rethink certain longstanding arrangements, and this will require the clear perspective that comes with time and a bit of distance.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
Nothing is more thrilling that the feeling there’s something new and exciting in the air. While that’s true, and in fact the Sun’s link to Jupiter, in a week’s time, promises exactly that, you’re so bogged down with duties you may not sense it’s coming. Still, it is, as you’ll soon discover.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
There’s a fine line between sticking to what you believe in, which is essential for any Scorpio, and being stubborn. If you’ve sensed that in certain situations, the latter has been the case, it’s true. Yet you hate the idea of giving up. Do exactly that. You’ll be glad you did.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
As appealing as the idea of organising plans once and being done with it may be, at the moment, life simply doesn’t work that way. Acknowledge the fact that even the simplest of arrangements are going through a cycle of extended, and exciting, transformation and you might even enjoy the process.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
Watching elements of your life you worked hard to build, and which you cherish, come undone isn’t just worrying, it’s a bit scary. Yet, admittedly, you’ve been bored by what you regard as stable and secure. The time has come to let some of these go, and to embrace the new.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
For ages you’ve been trying to convince certain individuals to venture into new territory, personally, professionally or in terms of ways of taking a break. But they’ve been unwilling to explore, even a little. Now, suddenly, they’re ready. Don’t ask why. Just be there to show them the way.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
The most important thing to remember during this unsettled period is exactly that. What you organise one day will probably come undone the next. Ignore those facts, and you’ll struggle to ensure things proceed as planned, which is unlikely. Out of character as making halfway plans may be, it’s the wisest option.
