Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
It’s often asked if there can be too much of a good thing. With your ruler Mars in the fun-loving Leo, from 20 July, you’ve have enjoyed life, possibly excessively. Now that Mars is in sensible Virgo, you’ll answer that question. You’ll organise each day, and even more, will enjoy meeting your goals.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Practical misunderstandings are relatively easy to deal with, simply because it’s only a matter of setting the facts straight. However, those you’re currently facing involve complex personal matters and will require both understanding and a willingness on everybody’s part to be patient, ask lots of questions and actively seek a solution.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
While you can’t avoid making plans of your own or commitment to others, with your ruler Mercury just ending its retrograde cycle, changes are inevitable. Some may be merely disruptive, but others could be unexpectedly informative. In every case, if you take time to investigate, you’ll learn a lot from them.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
As a Cancerian and somebody ruled by the Moon, you’ve an instinctive sense of when the tides of feelings are at a peak, as is the case now. Obviously, you’ll want to discuss any pressing matters. But the rest can, and should, wait until the mood is calmer and certain relevant facts have been revealed.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
Now that you’re able to look back on the rare pair of Leo New Moons, in late July and the eclipsed New Moon, on 21 August, you’re beginning to recognise the breakthroughs they’ve triggered. So much that, instead of battling to keep certain arrangements as they were, you’re considering saying farewell to them.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
Every Full Moon brings feelings to a peak. But because the current one accents close alliances, you could well find the time has come to acknowledge, and talk over, certain unspoken issues. At one point you probably hoped they’d vanish. They won’t. But discuss them now and you’ll resolve them easily.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
During this week, each day will introduces a new element to your plans. Consequently, patience is vital. Yet you must combine it with a focus on getting things moving, although not at the pace you’d hoped. Still, you can achieve that balance, and once you do, everything else will fall into place.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
Planning ahead may be a virtue. But if August’s two eclipses taught you anything, it’s that what’s least expected and, indeed, most unsettling can also be in your best interests. That’s the case now, too. If you can’t say an enthusiastic yes, then at least don’t say no. You’ll soon understand why.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
By no means are you rigid in your thinking or approach to life. Yet you’ve consistently put off certain changes in elements of your work or lifestyle. Bizarrely, this has been your intuition telling you it’s too early to make a move. The events triggered by the coming weeks’ planetary activity clarify things.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
Nobody would blame you for a lack of enthusiasm regarding even the suggestion that existing plans be altered, or completely reorganised. However, with the current Full Moon accenting exactly such matters, a combination of changes in the actual circumstances and, unexpectedly, in your own priorities, could mean you’ll be eager to undertake these.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
You’re not usually shy about saying what’s on your mind. This is especially the case now. Recent developments were unsettling but also thrilling. Still, in certain conversations you’re holding back, mostly because others seem uncertain about their own plans and you don’t want to overwhelm them with your ideas or enthusiasm.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
The difference between hard facts and feelings would seem to be a clear one. Yet certain individuals are demanding that you explain the ups and downs you’re experiencing in terms that border on scientific. Obviously, this is ridiculous. Explain, once and clearly what you’re experiencing, in your own words. That’s more than enough.
