Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
You’ve faced all sorts of obstacles, some minor, others huge, a few surprising. But they’ve all been frustrating. Despite that, you’ve achieved a lot, enough you’re hoping for a break. You’ll get it, but only after you tackle certain remaining crucial situations. Once you’ve settled those, life will be far more straightforward.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
If it seems everybody’s on edge, it’s no surprise. The past week was challenging enough, and now certain individuals seem determined to ignore their role in those problems and blame others, possibly you. While you’d be justified in confronting them, say nothing. With things moving so swiftly, these will soon be forgotten.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
In early June Venus, the planet that accents both what you earn and own, and your close alliances moved into the most reflective part of your chart. While you’ve learnt lots since then, you haven’t been able to put those insights into action. Venus’s move into Gemini changes all that, possibly overnight.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
True, there’s no avoiding the conflicts and the resulting tricky issues you’re facing, and in a number of situations. Happily, however, others are surprisingly willing to talk over even sensitive matters. What’s more, your superb instinct for knowing when to take a subtle approach versus speaking directly will prove extremely useful.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
It’s not that you were keeping important facts to yourself, as some are saying. It’s that you thought they were irrelevant, so ignored them. It’s just that, until recently, they didn’t matter. But with the foundation on which plans are based shifting, and dramatically, you’ll have to rethink things in depth.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
Don’t be surprised if what begin as easygoing discussions turn into civilised but increasingly intense disagreements. While, the issue may be whether certain facts are right, with your ruler Mercury, and Mars, already having challenged Pluto, and the Sun doing it this weekend, those seemingly civilised discussions could deteriorate into power struggles.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
By no means are you secretive. Yet you’re cautious about what you say, when and the manner in which you approach potentially contentious matters. Yet, on the other hand, with so much in transition, you owe it to yourself and others to be clear, if not blunt, about both your plans and your feelings.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
It’s the rare Scorpio who needs to have the last word in arguments. You’d rather have things go as you planned and, possibly, plotted even if nobody realises you were behind it all. At the moment, however, things will go more smoothly if you give others an idea what you’re trying to achieve.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
Sometimes obstacles are no more than that, problems to be overcome. Judging by the influence of the clash between the Sun and your ruler Jupiter, however, events are urging you to examine certain long term plans in the light of recent, rather dramatic, developments. You may need to make some changes
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
Although the emotionally intense Capricorn Full Moon isn’t until Sunday, it would be no surprise if you weren’t already experiencing both the heightened feelings it ushers in and, equally, the sudden changes typical of every Full Moon. Urgent as decisions seem, take it slowly. You’ve lots more to learn and discover.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
Few things annoy you more than those who pretend to be prepared for changes but who, as you’re about to discover, have given these little thought. Your best bet is to adopt the role of advisor or coach, which means helping them figure out what needs doing, and
in what order.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
Disappointing somebody you care about isn’t easy. But you’ve tried to reorganise various pressing obligations so you can keep your promises. While your desire to keep the individual in question happy is admirable, tell them what’s up. The sooner you address this, the more swiftly those anxieties will vanish.
