Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
The last thing any Aries likes to hear is that somebody you’re involved with wants to ‘take things slowly’. Because you’re both impatient and passionate by nature, you tend to view any such delays as an irritation. Still, in this case, you rightly sense that slower pace isn’t just wise, it’s necessary.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Although the recent eclipse took place days ago, it triggered a discussion of the need to rethink elements of your life you’ve regarded as unchanging. Once, they were. But as is now becoming clear, with the actual foundation on which arrangements are based shifting, it’s not about whether but, rather, when.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
Eventually, somebody will need to confront one particularly stubborn individual about their increasingly difficult attitude. The irony is, while they complain constantly, they’re still convinced the issue is the behaviour of others and has nothing to do with them. Say nothing. Soon events will force them to face the facts.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
Tempting as it is to put off certain financial or business decisions until you’ve solid facts, with so much in transition, that will take ages. Instead, make those decisions now, but organise them in such a way that, when the inevitable twists and turns arise, you can easily rethink arrangements.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
The time has come to do your sums. True, it isn’t exciting. This is, in fact, the reason you need to be reminded about such matters. However, this isn’t just examining past expenses or profits, financially or otherwise. The resulting insights will be incredibly helpful when it comes to making pressing decisions.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
Yet again, you’re in possession of facts that aren’t just important, they could substantially alter plans being organised by certain individuals. However, you don’t want to interfere. Giving them that information isn’t interfering, it’s providing them with vital information. Do that, then leave the actual decision-making to them.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
It’s rare that you’ve any need to have the last word in discussions, even when things have become somewhat heated. Yet now you’ve no choice. If you don’t ask others to explain exactly what they have in mind, then detail your expectations, there’ll be confusion, and it will be endless.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
Change is in the air. You don’t mind it, but would rather know when it’s coming and the form it will take. While this seems unlikely, your instincts are saying these aren’t just wise, they’re in your best interests. Trust those feelings then try, very hard, to call a halt to all that analysis.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
You don’t think of yourself as being impulsive. Still, when you know what’s necessary, you become a ‘committee of one’, and will often take action without consulting others. This is exactly what you’ve done. Discuss those decisions, but only after everything’s finished, and the dust has settled.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
Only now, days after last Saturday’s eclipsed Full Moon, are you in a position to assess the impact of events and, even more, explore your options. Whatever you conclude, bear in mind that February’s second eclipse, on the 26th, will undoubtedly trigger yet more changes, some of which will be dramatic.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
Ordinarily you’re expert at getting vital facts, whether they involve practical matters, or certain individuals. But now, bizarrely, you’ve hit a wall. And the feeling certain facts are being kept under wraps isn’t as far out as you think. Be patient. These will be exposed, but not until late February.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
Pay no attention to those cautious but unimaginative individuals who’re urging you to examine the details of recent intriguing offers before you even show interest. If your instincts are saying these are worthwhile, which is likely, then get involved. You can back out at any point, but it’s unlikely you’ll want to.
