Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
Although Mercury’s retrograde cycle has a reputation for causing havoc, sometimes those unexpected events can be revealing. That’s especially the case now that Mercury, still retrograde, has moved into Aries. Even minor errors could lead to unexpected insights, often about issues that you thought you’d just have to live with.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Usually, the Sun’s move into Taurus would lift your spirits and give your energy a welcome boost. While both of those are likely to happen, the odds are good you’ll be distracted by the range of complex obstacles you’re currently facing. No single one is that demanding, but each will offer its own unique challenges.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
If you’re experiencing ups and downs, both in terms of your feelings but also your enthusiasm for certain plans and even people, it’s no surprise. While, with your ruler Mercury retrograde and forthright Mars moving into Gemini, mood swings are inevitable, you’ll also have noticed that life’s more exciting than usual.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
Although Mercury went retrograde on the 9th, it’s just moved, still retrograde, to accent the structure of your life. Worrying as that sounds, the minor errors it kicks up will call your attention to arrangements that demand far too much from you, and give far too little in return.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
You don’t think of yourself as a control freak. Yet there are a number of situations about which you feel responsible, so watch carefully. Suddenly others are volunteering to help. While this would be a relief, you’re also concerned. Instead of worrying, talk things over, and in as great detail as possible.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
True, there’s a need to rethink plans. However, during this week of twists and turns, in both the actual circumstances you’re dealing with and the mood of others, your efforts are unlikely to achieve much. If you must reorganise things, regard what you do as tentative, if not a bit of an experiment.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
Nobody has a better understanding of the tensions that exist in even the most stable of relationships, personal or out in the world. Add the tensions triggered by the coming weeks’ complicated events, and there could be dramas. If so, that’s great. There’s no better way to clear the air.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
You’ve several decisions to make. While some are straightforward and involve practical matters, others are far more complicated and a few mean you’ll also have to get entangled with the ups and downs of certain emotional individuals. Tackle the easy ones first, especially since the others will require time and considerable patience.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
By no means are you secretive, about your plans, enthusiasms or passions. Yet once you’ve revealed your feelings to those you care about, you turn to other matters. Consequently, those who need frequent reminders they matter could feel hurt. Still, they need only ask and you’ll respond, and warmly.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
Ordinarily minor misunderstandings are best forgiven and forgotten. But because the issues in question link to more serious matters, you’re urged to talk these over. Once you’re actually discussing them, you’ll realise how crucial they are but, equally, how with only a brief conversation , they can be dealt with for good.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
The last thing you want to do is suggest that somebody is being dishonest. Yet judging by what you’re witnessing versus what the individual in question is saying, that’s the case. While, ordinarily, you’d avoid asking about such matters directly, not only is it best, it will clear up confusion instantly.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
Understandably, you were rather hoping one particular individual would live up to their promise to compensate you for your efforts or financial expenses. However, yet again, they’re apologising and saying something else came first. If you want priority, you’ll need to be far less patient and a good deal more demanding.
