Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
There’s an unusual amount of planetary activity influencing Aries this week. However, the move by your ruler Mars into a new position, and into the restless, inquisitive Gemini could be the most significant. This triggers a six-week long cycle of discussion and exploration, one that could lead to life-changing discoveries.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
While you can’t prepare for what you haven’t yet encountered or discovered, which is what the Taurus New Moon on Wednesday the 26th is about, you can begin decluttering your life and your mind now. You’re focusing on numerous pursuits that were once rewarding but bring you increasingly little in return.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
Don’t be surprised if you suddenly feel it’s time to review, if not back out of, certain arrangements. While some are new, others have been a part of your life for a very long time. Still, with so much around you in transition, you’ve good reason to give these serious thought.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
Being an intuitive water sign, you’re often more aware of what others are feeling than they are themselves. True, most of the time you can’t raise such matters. However, the odds are good certain individuals won’t just mention these, but will seek your guidance. Your words could be amazingly helpful.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
For ages you’ve intended to explore ideas others regard as both exciting and worthwhile. Despite their enthusiasm, you still don’t get the point and, because of that, are putting it off. Don’t. What you learn now and over the coming week could change all of that. And without the dramas you dread.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
You’ve been saying to yourself that certain increasingly complex situations don’t need to be discussed. What’s needed is a new approach, if not a fresh perspective. That’s coming, but not until after the New Moon, on Wednesday. Following that, both the general mood and your own attitude will be far more positive.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
If you began this week knowing to expect twists and turns, and of many varieties, you’ll have been prepared. Of greater difficulty for you, however, will have been dealing with the emotional ups and downs of certain usually stable individuals. Actually, looking back, your own mood has been somewhat erratic, too.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
If you haven’t already decluttered your life, in terms of your possessions but, even more, in terms of various demanding relationships, the time has come. While you sometimes rather enjoy the dramatic ups and downs in the lives of certain individuals, they’re becoming predictable, if not just plain irritating.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
Sudden changes in either the circumstances you’re dealing with or existing arrangements don’t generally upset you. However, with the retrograde Mercury triggering considerable confusion, you’ll find that reliable facts aren’t easy to come by. Knowing that, when you make plans, ensure they’re flexible enough to ride out even unexpected developments.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
Although it’s been a chaotic couple of weeks, events have given you a welcome opportunity to tackle issues you’ve been meaning to talk over, but haven’t had time to discuss. Complex as the matters in question seem, once you’ve focusing on them, they’ll prove far simpler than you anticipated.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
Obviously life is easier if you can define issues, then talk them through all at once. But not only are things too complex for that, certain crucial facts are unlikely to surface for some days yet. You may not be feeling patient, but in this particular situation, you’ve no choice.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
By and large, it’s good to think the best of everybody. But in the case of one particular individual, that optimism needs to be tempered with caution, if not out and out suspicion. Although you’re hoping the dubious manoeuvres you’re witnessing aren’t for real, you’re urged to protect yourself and others.
