Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
Leaving discussions and decisions that will influence you in the hands of others won’t be easy. But you really have no choice. Tempting as it is to figure out a way to influence their thinking, there’s little point. The individual in question is well equipped to deal with this. Let them. And busy yourself elsewhere.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
If ever there was a time to trust in your intuition, even over hard facts, it’s now. While the strong feelings you have about what’s wise and, as much, what isn’t may not add up today, by Thursday’s powerful link between your ruler Venus and the planet of vision, Neptune, they will.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
In a little over two weeks’ time, your ruler Mercury has the first of a series of three encounters with the practical Saturn. During this period, which extends until mid-January, you’ll finally be able to discuss and resolve persistent misunderstandings and, better yet, will learn why they’ve been such a constant problem.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
Getting around to tackling a potentially upsetting issue can be really challenging, so once you’re discussing it, the tendency is to keep at it until everything has been dealt with. Not only would that be unwise, you’re short of vital facts. For now, say what needs saying. Leave the rest for later.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
By no means are you secretive. Yet it would appear that somebody you care about, and deeply, has been starved of your renowned Leo affection and support. The simple fact is, your attention has been elsewhere. Do what you can to make up for this, and the sooner, the better.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
The general view is that engaging in gossip is unwise. Still, you’re tempted to reveal certain things you’ve heard about recently. Don’t. While opinions about repeating gossip vary, according to the planets. If you do so at the moment, you risk upsetting somebody, and in ways you don’t realise are possible.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
One of your most admirable characteristics is your genuine concern for others, their wellbeing and their happiness. To the extent that, when wonderful things come your way, you’ll try to include those who might benefit. Don’t. This time around, these aren’t for anybody else. They’re for you, and you alone.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
Sooner or later you’ll have to face, define and deal with a crucial but particularly tricky misunderstanding. When it first arose it was no more than that. Since then, however, it’s turned into a power struggle about who’s right and who’s wrong. Try to get past that and focus on striking an accord.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
It seems that in a recent, possibly hurried, discussion you simply didn’t mention certain details. While these seemed unimportant at the time, since then they’ve become crucial. That being the case, go back over those conversations and ensure everybody knows absolutely everything. Tedious as this sounds, it’s the only solution.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
Events have backed you into a situation that is as unsettling as it is, in some ways, exciting. The problem is, these developments are taking you into unfamiliar if not completely unknown territory. While, on one hand, you’re anxious, on the other you’re eagerly anticipating the surprises coming your way.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
Sometimes challenging situations are best dealt with swiftly. But those you currently find worrying are really the result of the breakthroughs triggered by the recent link between Saturn and your ruler Uranus. These are about a new cycle, and will unfold at their own pace, some rapidly and others over time.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
During periods of change, such as this is, there’s a tendency to stick with what you know until your instincts say it’s time to move, then take immediate action. Instead, do a little each day. What you learn won’t just be informative, the insights you gain will contribute to the coming days’ decisions.
