Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
Being ruled by the forthright Mars, you regard your capacity to stand up to others, and to stick to your principles as a virtue. Still, that doesn’t mean that you must always confront those you disagree with head on. This is especially the case now. State your case and leave it at that.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
If you’re getting bored or, possibly, just plain exasperated by situations as unrewarding as they are predictable, it’s no surprise. The real problem is that, in the recent past, you’ve rejected potential ideas, and more than once. But making the necessary changes means taking chances, which thus far, you’ve refused to do.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
Being inquisitive by nature, you’re usually the first to hear about both clever solutions for ongoing dilemmas and intriguing new ideas. Yet even you can’t possibly be up to date on everything. Bear that in mind when, Mercury’s link with Uranus, on the 25th, triggers ideas or offers as thrilling as they are unexpected.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
Unsettling as sudden changes are, they’re timely. Still, be aware that you’re unlikely to make lasting plans until early January, when the Cancer Full Moon triggers shifts in both your own priorities and the actual situations you’re dealing with. For now, focus on exploring every single option, including those that seem least likely.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
In a few days’ time, your ruler the Sun moves to join Mercury and Saturn in the portion of your chart that accents who, and what, you care about most. The resulting discussions won’t just be important, what you learn, and others learn about you, could lead to life-changing decisions.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
Long ago you discovered that, difficult as giving somebody a firm refusal may be, it’s better than leaving everybody wondering what’s what. But now it’s different. With the options you’re dealing with changing almost every day, those plans should be viewed as, at minimum, an experiment, one from which you’ll learn a lot.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
As a Libra and an air sign, you’ll usually think through new ideas or changes in existing arrangements, then talk them through with those whose views matter. Judging by the current swift pace, however, you may have to take decisive action, and do it soon. If so, those discussions can wait until later.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
Because you gather facts before making even a simple decision, you rarely need to reorganise things later. As you’ve probably already noticed, however, even where you’ve carefully thought things through, changes are as dramatic as they are sudden. This will lead to breakthroughs, but how may not be immediately clear.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
No matter how strong your convictions are about certain matters, ensure you listen to everybody’s ideas. This includes those who make little sense. That may be true now, but with such powerful planetary activity in the heavens, seeming unchanging arrangements will be transformed, some overnight. The more flexible what you organise, the better.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
When you first brushed off questions about issues that had been worrying others, it was mostly because you expected the matters in question to right themselves. Not only has that not be the case, you’re now struggling with these problems yourself. Now that you’re tackling these, they’ll be resolved, and swiftly.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
Good ideas are always intriguing, if only because you’ll learn more about the world in general, certain matters in particular and the people involved. However, this is also an exercise in flexible thinking, since seemingly solid plans will themselves shift, probably more than once. This will be as informative as it is exasperating.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
One of your greatest gifts, as a Pisces, is your capacity to be tolerant of others’ quirks. However, what you’re currently facing is more than that. It involves sheer, unreasoning stubbornness. Forget about discussion. The only way to battle this is to state your case, and to remain unchanging, until you get your way.
