Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
When you stand your ground with those who’re argumentative, you don’t think of yourself as being stubborn. But in this particular case, that’s exactly what you’re doing and, worse, it’s preventing you taking advantage of a remarkable idea or offer. Pause. Think carefully. Then say ‘yes’. You’ll be glad you did.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Planning ahead may be a virtue. But with your ruler Venus going retrograde on 4 March, you’ll find you’re in a reflective mood. This, unlike Mercury’s period of reverse motion, isn’t about errors. Rather, it’s about going within, reflection and rethinking your priorities. You could decide major changes are timely.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
Some say that luck is purely about chance. Others insist it is made, that is, the result of effort, not good fortune. Judging by the current planetary setup, it’s about both. Brilliant aspects involving Jupiter will be helpful, but still, it’s up to you to take things to the next stage.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
As much as you’d like to get certain plans organised properly, it’s unrealistic. Not only are you contending with Sunday’s eclipse, but there’s also the coming week’s potent planetary activity, which involves the fortunate Jupiter and Uranus, planet of innovation and the unexpected. Things will be as unsettling as they are exciting.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
Being a Leo, you’re both strong and have a knack for charming others, including very difficult individuals. Yet even you are anxious about dealing with somebody in particular. You are, quite frankly, intimidated. That’s understandable. There is, in fact, no ‘right’ way to approach an individual who’s determined to be impossible.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
You’ll soon need to discuss certain increasingly tricky matters on the partnership front. This could involve personal issues, those of a business nature or, possibly, both. In every case, however, you’re urged to wait and watch and, most of all, learn from the events triggered by this week’s eclipsed New Moon.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
Obviously you’d rather not proceed with plans or decisions without the support of others, of those who’re involved in the actual situation or those you trust. Yet with things moving so swiftly and arrangements in disarray, you’ve no choice. You needn’t worry. What you’ve devised may seem final but it’s not.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
No sign is better at making plans, exploring every option and considering what will work and what won’t. However, even you, at your canniest, couldn’t possibly anticipate the changes triggered by the combination of this weekend’s eclipse and the coming week’s exciting, if unsettling, planetary activity. You’re in for a surprise.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
For ages you’ve been thinking about making major changes in elements of your life that work well but have become predicable, if not just plain boring. While the ideas or offers currently coming your way will be intriguing, they could seem overwhelming. Still, explore them. You’ll be glad you did.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
By no means are you fixed in your thinking or narrow-minded. Yet there are certain ideas or avenues of activity that, some years ago, you decided don’t suit you. While times have changed and so have you, those views have remained the same. At least consider these. What you learn will surprise you.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
There are few more powerful planetary alliances from your point of view than the link, in early March, between the fortunate Jupiter and your ruler Uranus. This is so powerful you may already be experiencing events that involve both shakeups and golden opportunities. Simply exploring them will lift your spirits.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
Now that the communication planet Mercury has joined the Sun in your sign, you’ll feel better equipped to think through certain complex issues and, even more, confront those who don’t see things your way. While they needn’t agree, a bit of support would be helpful. That’s all you’re asking for.
