Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
Keeping your thoughts to yourself doesn’t come naturally. But the very tricky circumstances you’re facing give you little choice. This is well-timed, since with your ruler Mars in Aries until the 10th, you’ll want to take full advantage of this rare and rewarding cycle of inner reflection and personal review.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
With both the lively Mars and your ruler Venus in the most strategic portion of your chart, life’s not about what you do, but what you learn. While discussions with others will result in some insights, most will emerge from reflecting on questions, many of which you’ve been wrestling with for ages.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
Discussions about certain minor issues between you and those closest, at home or in your working life, can’t wait much longer. While, recently, these didn’t matter, they’re of increasing importance. Enough that you’ll want to think carefully about your priorities, both in terms of your relationship and your long term plans.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
There’s no easy way to confront somebody who already feels embattled. The fact is, this is the result of their difficult attitude and their tendency to alienate those who disagree with them. Worse, at the moment, they’re picking on you. Risky as standing your ground is, it’s probably the best option.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
Tempting as it is to use your charms to win others over to certain plans, it’s unwise. And not just for them. You could be cheating yourself, as well. Invest a day or so in checking out the practical side of these arrangements. What you learn could substantially alter your thinking.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
While, logically, you know that as one element of your life takes centre stage, another must retreat and, possibly, come to a conclusion. Still, you’re wondering why you can’t juggle both. Give it a try. It’s likely, however, that you’ll soon realise this devours your time, yet gives little joy in return.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
Talking over issues isn’t just important, to you, as a Libra, it’s essential. The problem is that certain individuals seem determined to highjack what should be civilised discussions and turn them into an in depth and overly emotional sort of encounter group. Gently, but firmly, bring this to an end.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
Yet again you’re facing a situation in which unexpected, and last minute, developments mean you’ve no choice but to alter plans you’ve already dealt with, and in detail. While, logically, changes should be kept to a minimum, once you’re actually rethinking things, don’t hold back. Be bold. You won’t regret it.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
Since a very young age, most Sagittarians have heard, and ignored, lectures about the importance of planning ahead. Yet now, even you are struggling with the way seemingly random events are changing everything, often overnight. They’re unsettling but are part of a cycle that’s as beneficial as it is disruptive.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
While often those born under the sign of Capricorn will have many acquaintances, true friends are another matter. From your perspective, friendship is about trust, and that must be earned. Still, don’t be too hard on others. Certain individuals may, on the surface, seem to be flighty but actually, they’re deeply reliable.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
Although you’re sorry one particular individual is struggling with difficulties, they’re by no means alone in facing unexpected developments. You’ve wrestled with a few unanticipated dramas yourself. The real issue is the individual in question is so self-centred they can’t, and won’t, notice anything others are facing.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
Often, when making decisions, you’ll compare notes with others. But now certain of the issues you’re facing are either so personal or solely your responsibility with that you feel the need to deal with matters on your own. This isn’t just wise. Ultimately, it will make the process much easier.
