Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
Although, with its two eclipses, February’s bound to force everybody to rethink even seeming solid arrangements, other than those shakeups, things will be quiet until the final week. Knowing that, when you’re reorganising things, ensure arrangements are flexible enough you can easily discuss your options and review plans when the need arises.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Sooner or later you’ll have to tackle one particular difference with others. While you’ve employed all your skills as a charming and tactful Taurus, you’ve achieved little. Actually, that’s for the best. The circumstances in question are about to shift, and so dramatically you’d have to rethink everything anyway.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
If ever there was a time to take chances on the new ideas being discussed, it’s now. True, some are more of a dream that the kind of plan you can rely on. But, then, the mood is far more about exploration than trying to find a single, lasting arrangement.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
A few weeks ago you went through a tense period. By and large, others were both helpful and understanding. However, one or two individuals almost seemed to sense you were vulnerable and took advantage of it. Now they’re trying to apologise, although awkwardly. Still, being forgiving. Their efforts are sincere.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
The last thing you’re in the mood to do is spend time with others analysing already tense issues. The odds are good, however, once you actually begin talking things over, you’ll realise the problem isn’t the situation in question but a misunderstanding between you. Tackle that, and everything else will fall into place.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
As a Virgo, you’d never commit to a plan or arrangement involving others without knowing exactly what’s involved. Yet between now and the end of the month, you’ll have to do just that, and often. With the actual foundation on which plans are made shifting, there’s absolutely no reason to bother with details.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
Powerful planetary activity which accents close alliances, personal and professional, suggests that others are in for lots of ups and downs. Tempting as it is to be there for them, others are able to handle everything on their own. Instead, think carefully about how those changes would influence you.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
For ages certain individuals have been bugging you about changes in certain joint activities. They regard these as overdue; you think they’re unnecessary. Judging by the coming week’s planetary activity, events are about to decide for you, and in favour of those changes. Go along with them. You’ll be glad you did.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
Now that the Sun has moved to accent both your domestic set up and activities out in the world, discussions about changes could turn into solid ideas. Still, do nothing until after the eclipsed New Moon, in a week’s time. The events it triggers could revolutionise both circumstances and your thinking.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
In the two years since Mars was last in the part of your chart that accents the structure of your life, a lot has changed. Circumstances have shifted but so have your own priorities. Now Mars is back, and its influence will kick-start a process of rethinking existing arrangements and future plans.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
You’ve learnt to be tolerant of family or friends who seem unable to say a forthright yes or no. But now it’s you who’s uncertain what’s best. This is no surprise. What’s more, it’s unlikely your mind will be clear enough to make crucial pivotal decisions until later in the month.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
There’s a fine line between sidestepping matters you know would cause trouble and those where a confrontation is inevitable. Several of the latter type are brewing although, obviously, you’re trying to put them off. Don’t. Actually, it’s the reverse. The sooner you tackle them, the easier it will be.
