Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
Recent clashes didn’t seem that serious at the time. Since then, however, you’ve realised one particular individual takes certain of these issues very seriously indeed. Discuss this, going into their views and yours, and in depth. It will both explain everything and begin the process of healing that rift between you.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Judging by the current planetary setup, life has been far more about duty and dealing with practicalities than pleasure. While you’ve no question these matters need to be tackled, you need a break. You’ll get it, and more than that, but you’ll probably have to wait until a week from now.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
Usually, you’re the first to come up with new ideas. But in several recent situations you’ve been blank, and lacked suggestions of any variety. Over the coming weeks you’ll make up for lost time. Better yet, this will give you a chance to take advantage of the insights you’ve gained recently.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
Tempting as it is to stand up to somebody whose views are causing everybody concern, you’re urged to bide your time. At least wait until Mercury’s retrograde cycle ends, on the 5th. What comes to light after that could explain what’s behind their attitude and, even more, mean you’ve avoided embarrassing remarks.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
Few things exasperate you more than those who can’t make even simple decisions without consulting everyone they know. Now that you’re in that position, things are looking different. With changes influencing others as much as they have you, you’ve no choice but to discuss plans, and each step of the way.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
It’s rare that you’re so angered by an individual or situation that you’ve no idea what to say or do. Usually, you’ve an idea or suggestion. Actually, at the moment, the less you react, the better. This is a cycle that’s all about changes, some of which won’t be easy to understand.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
While it’s true, Mercury’s retrograde cycle ends on the 5th, that doesn’t means the confusion you’re contending with will vanish overnight. On the contrary, while this suggests certain errors will be untangled, the differences that have caused problems will remain an issue until they’re discussed frankly and in detail.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
There are many kinds of misunderstandings. There are some you decide to live with, mostly because it’s easier than engaging in long discussions regarding the issues in question. However, in one particular case, what were minor problems are getting worse by the day. The sooner you address these, the better.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
The brief but powerful window during which the dynamic Mars and retrograde Mercury are accenting exploration lasts only until early 5 September. Between now and then, review various places you’ve been, ideas you’ve heard about and offers you’ve turned down. On reflection, you’re likely to realise you really should change your mind.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
Because you think things through before you make or commit to a plan, when it’s organised, it’s rare changes are necessary. But now not only is that the case, once you’ve begun, you’ll realise there are all sorts of exciting ideas that can, and should be, incorporated into your original vision.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
If there’s a single virtue you’ll want to focus on developing, and maintaining, over the coming week or so, it’s patience. While, in general, you’re amazingly understanding about others’ odd characteristics, the individuals are a bit uptight and so are you. As a result, you could easily get on each other’s nerves.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
For you, as a Pisces, having something to dream about, and to work for isn’t just important, it’s an essential part of your life. However, recent events have forced you to rethink your vision. Since this can’t be done overnight, you’re feeling unsettled. Be patient. That new dream will appear, but it will take time.
