Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
What begin as minor issues could, and without saying much, turn into a major but pointless battle. While, ordinarily, you’d stand your ground, in this case you’re better off compromising, at least in the short term. Eventually you’ll work out those differences, but when you think about it logically, they can wait.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Obviously, you’re concerned that last minute changes in plans, some longstanding, would upset others. The trick is to have your facts ready. This means thinking things through, to the extent you’re able to explain what’s behind these and, even more, give them clear details about how those you’re talking to would benefit.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
As intriguing as the ideas or offers currently being discussed may be, you’re already feeling overwhelmed by the amount of detail these would involve. While that’s understandable, once you actually get started, you’ll realise these details aren’t just crucial but will be so fascinating you won’t be bored, even for a second.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
Appealing as the idea of an offer coming out of the blue seems, actually dealing with what’s arisen is quite another matter. Exciting as this is, you’ve numerous unanswered questions. The solution? Say a tentative yes, then devote your time to getting the answers necessary if you’re to take things further.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
The New Moon, and the accompanying fresh perspective, may not be until this Saturday. But because it accents the structure of your life, the changes it could trigger will be very much on your mind. Discuss your views with those concerned. They’ll learn a lot about the situation in question and so will you.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
Because you’re inquisitive, and long ago realised that you can learn as much from ideas you don’t pursue as those you do, you’ve been exploring all sorts of potential changes. While, initially, you didn’t take these seriously, the more you discover, the clearer it is this might be a good idea.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
Hopes and promises are one thing. But, as you’re about to learn, not everything turns out as successfully as you anticipated. However, if you encounter disappointments, regard them as setbacks, nothing more. Things will turn out well. In fact, far better than you anticipated. You need only be patient.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
When you first heard about recent exciting but unsettling ideas, you were intrigued. But you were also unsure whether to go to the next stage. It seems destiny made the decision for you, because there’s progress being made. Continue to explore. What you learn could convince you it’s wise to take things further.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
A week ago the communication planet, Mercury, moved into Sagittarius for an unusually long stay, until mid-January. During this period, you’ll have plenty of time to discuss issues and explore various options. Knowing that, urgent as decisions seem, there’s no rush. Take time making them and you’ll only need to do it once.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
Planning ahead isn’t just a virtue, most of the time it streamlines even complicated situations. Judging by the unsettled events this week’s dynamic but somewhat challenging planetary setup promises, you’re better off ensuring even the simplest of plans are flexible enough to ride out the unexpected twists and turns coming your way.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
There is no wrong way to be inquisitive or interested in recent developments, although judging by the current planetary setup, certain individuals seem to think you’ve no business pursuing various ideas, plans or projects. If possible, don’t even respond. If you must, thank them politely, then do exactly as you please.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
Ordinarily, battling arrangements that simply don’t make sense would be wise. But judging by the powerful planetary activity between now and late November, even seemingly solid arrangements are unlikely to proceed as anticipated. Knowing that, express your concerns and suggest options, then back off and allow events to catch up with your ideas.
