Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
As an Aries and a fire sign, you thrive on new ideas and the challenges that come with them. Still, even you might be struggling with the sudden developments triggered by last Friday’s link between the Sun and unpredictable Uranus. Explore these. The more you learn, the more excited you’ll be.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Although most are familiar with Mercury’s retrograde cycle, which triggers confusion, your ruler Venus has also been retrograde. It’s about reflecting on your life. While this period, which began on 4 March, has just concluded, you’ll be reviewing what you learnt and the numerous insights you’ve yet to think over.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
Since early March the planet of courage and action, Mars, has been in the most sensitive and strategic portion of your chart. While this will have forced you to tackle several unsettling if not truly uncomfortable matters, you’ve learnt a lot, lessons you’ll use when Mars enters Gemini this Friday.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
Unexpected, if not unsettling, as the events triggered by last Friday’s link between the Sun and Uranus may have been, you’re now benefitting from the resulting shakeups. These are freeing you to explore new ideas or venture into territory that, only recently, wasn’t possible. And there’s yet more excitement to come.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
Being spontaneous by nature, you’re always happy to hear about new ideas and explore unfamiliar territory. However, the changes that you could be forced to make are quite another matter. You’re lacking facts and can’t see their virtue. They’re worthwhile, but only once you’re actually involved will you learn how.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
While you don’t expect everybody to care as you do about organising plans wisely and, equally, getting the facts right, clearly there are many who can’t be bothered with even simple details. Yet, bizarrely, in one or two situations, because you’re rushed or lacking crucial information, that’s what you’ll have to do.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
When your ruler Venus began its retrograde cycle in early March, you too began a cycle of reflection and questioning. While Venus is once again moving forward, many of those questions remain unanswered and will continue to be a topic of profitable, if sometimes perplexing, discussion for some time.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
As a Scorpio, of the twelve signs, you’re probably best at dealing with opposition and obstacles, as has been the case recently. You’ve an amazing capacity to invest time in analysing the actual situation and, where appropriate, the individuals involved. The insights you’ve gained have proved extremely helpful and will continue to.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
Nobody would ever describe you as stubborn and, still less, inflexible. However, judging by the current planetary setup, you’re about to encounter situations in which you are unwilling even to consider making changes. While this realisation will shock you, it will also lead to a timely shift in attitude.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
Even when you’re not consciously making plans, you’ll be organising things in the back of your mind. Which means the sudden developments triggered by last Friday’s encounter between the Sun and Uranus, planet of the unexpected, are bound to have triggered shakeups. Bizarrely, despite the resulting chaos, they could prove timely.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
When the ideas planet Mercury encountered your ruler Uranus in late March, you began a cycle of discussion that’s been informative but still hasn’t led to decisions. However, the Sun’s meeting with Uranus, just last Friday, will have focused your thoughts and, better yet, brought everything together, and with astonishing swiftness.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
The idealist in you worries, sometimes too much, about letting others down, in terms of here and now commitments or future promises. Yet events are forcing you to make changes, some substantial. The individuals in question are experiencing problems of exactly the same nature, so won’t be in the least surprised.
