Your Stars Today

Aries | March 20 – April 18

Although every sign is influenced by this weekend’s powerful eclipsed Full Moon, because it accents loved ones and close friends, unspoken tensions could boil over. While you’ll be tempted to get involved in potentially heated discussions, you’d soon regret it. Do a lot of listening and say as little as possible.

Taurus | April 19 – May 19

Only days ago you discussed the rather radical ideas certain individuals are proposing and concluded they were intriguing, but actually impractical. Yet now events are forcing you to take these seriously. The trick is to talk less and get involved. Once you’re in the midst, your perspective will change, and dramatically.

Gemini | May 20 – June 20

Now that you’re looking back on recent contentious discussions, it’s become clear these were as much about the tense feelings everybody was wrestling with as the actual situations in question. Now that things are calmer, it’s worth going back over these and rethinking the arrangements you made at the time.

Cancer | June 21 – July 21

Obviously life is easier if you can clearly define problems, then tackle them in an organised manner. But with such a lot in transition, things aren’t that straightforward. The trick is to do as much as you can, and ensure those arrangements are flexible enough that, when necessary, they can be easily rethought.

Leo | July 22 – August 21

Every sign will benefit from this weekend’s link between your ruler, the Sun and mighty Jupiter. What’s more, because this accents both new ideas and close alliances, what arises is likely to be as unexpected as it is thrilling. The only challenge is with things moving swiftly, you’ll have little time for debate.

Virgo | August 22 – September 21

The time has come for discussion. And not just polite chitchat but a genuine exchange of ideas. While you’ll resolve numerous issues, don’t tackle everything at once. Although it would be wonderful if you could talk through the full range of problems involving others, you’re better off doing it in stages.

Libra | September 22 – October 22

Eclipses are about breakthroughs, which are generally involve unexpected ideas or offers or, perhaps, sudden changes. This means that while it’s clear that with two in February, this weekend and the 26th, you’re in for some surprises, even the canniest astrologer would have difficulty saying the form they’ll take.

Scorpio | October 23 – November 21

When certain minor differences first arose, in early February, you assumed they could be dealt with in one brief conversation. But you’re still talking about, and in some cases, wrestling with these matters. This hasn’t to do with them being complicated, as much as the actual circumstances involved are in transition.

Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20

While nothing and nobody could undermine the power of the current link between the Sun and your ruler Jupiter, those stunning ideas or offers are unlikely to remain as you organise them. Annoying as these changes may be, ultimately you’ll recognise them as the exciting, if unexpected, improvements that they are.

Capricorn | December 21 – January 18

This is a period of review. While examining your financial situation is easy, as you need only look at your accounts, the wise use of your time and, even more, your affections is another matter. Still, it’s vital. Talk this over with somebody you trust. They’ll both guide and inspire you.

Aquarius | January 19 – February 17

Sooner or later you’re going to have to take a tough line with one or two individuals who seem to think they’re too cool to be responsible, even if that means inconveniencing others. Recently you’ve been amused, so laughed it off. Soon, however, you’ll become irritated, enough that you’ll speak up.

Pisces | February 18 – March 19

If you sense good fortune is in the air, you’re right. This will take the form of the exciting ideas or offers triggered by the Sun’s stunning alliance to the fortunate Jupiter. While you’ll recognise some developments as promising immediately, others will be less clear. That being the case, explore absolutely everything.
