Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
Having just lived through one of the most demanding weeks of recent years, you’re feeling a combination of exhaustion and achievement. But don’t relax too much, because there’s more to come. Welcome and, often, exciting as what arises seems, the odds are good you’ll face yet more of those complications.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Last Saturday, your ruler Venus moved to accent the structure of your life. This cycle of review and, ultimately, decision making lasts until mid-September, which gives you plenty of time to consider what merely requires a rethink and where serious changes need to be made. For now, concentrate on exploring your options.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
It’s the rare Gemini who’ll get so worked up about a difference of opinion that issues turn into an out and out battle. If that’s been the case recently, it probably had more to do with the misunderstandings triggered by your ruler Mercury’s retrograde cycle and the anxieties it roused in you.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
There’s been such a focus on practical and financial matters recently, that you’re worried others are feeling neglected. Certainly, you’re longing for the company of somebody you can relax with. That will come, and within days. You’ve achieved far more than you realise, as events will soon make abundantly clear.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
Every sign was influenced by last week’s powerful eclipsed New Moon, and the sudden events it triggered. However, because it was in Leo, both what took place and the insights you gained as a result of those events will have made it clear that the changes you’ve been avoiding really can’t wait.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
Although the Sun and your ruler Mercury are both in your sign, which boosts your enthusiasm and intellect, this won’t be an easy period. This is primarily because with Mercury retrograde, or in reverse motion, you’re contending with unexpected events and aggravating errors. Still, bizarrely, many of these are proving surprisingly informative.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
Recent unexpected developments, clashes with others or, perhaps, both have left what once seemed straightforward plans in disarray. While, obviously, you’re concerned, this is actually well timed. You’ve long sensed that existing arrangements should be reviewed. This is your chance. Once you begin, you’ll realise how wise it was.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
Many blame the retrograde Mercury for everything that goes wrong, but ignore how some of those errors reveal past misunderstandings that could easily have turned into real problems. You’ve already dealt with several. Note these and, equally, what arises this week and you’ll recognise the unacknowledged benefits of this period.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
It’s rare that you’re suspicious of others. Not only do you realise everybody has their failings, you’d rather deal with whatever arises than worry. Still, one particular individual is a habitual liar, and has no conscience about it. In this case, forgive and forget won’t work. Be cautious. It’s your only choice.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
While there’s no arguing that between August’s two eclipses and Mercury being retrograde until early September, you’re in a tricky period, but by no means are things going badly. On the contrary, combine last week’s exciting ideas or offers with the coming days’ events, and you’re in for thrilling results.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
Unexpected as recent clashes with others were, and there were several, talking things through cleared things up. The problem’s been that the current swift pace and, thus, lack of time to discuss decisions has meant certain individuals felt left out. Apologise, even if it’s not your fault, then concentrate on updating everybody concerned.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
With your powerful instincts, as a Pisces, you’ve a knack for spotting ideas or offers that are worth pursuing versus those that demand caution. This is always handy but especially now, with so much in transition. The only problem is convincing certain less intuitive individuals to trust your feelings.
