Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
One of your strengths is your capacity to think and move swiftly, and when necessary, without much thought. Except with your ruler Mars currently positioned in the most strategic portion of your chart, even minor details are crucial. That being the case, urgent as things seem, arrangements will be resolved. Take it slowly.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Unsettling if not annoying as sudden changes in your plans may be, the events triggered by the encounter between your ruler Venus and Saturn can’t be ignored. And with these both newly arrived to accent ways you could broaden your horizons, what you encounter or learn could be thrilling, if not life-changing.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
Certain decisions are pressing but, alas, the actual situations in question are not at all straightforward. Add to that the fact your ruler Mercury has only just concluded its retrograde cycle, and things had best be dealt with slowly. That’s no problem. What you’ll say to those who’re in a hurry will be.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
You can’t exactly prepare for the emotions that will be roused by the Cancer Full Moon, in early January. But you can be aware that because that’s coming, you’ve time to reflect on whatever strong feelings or issues arise. Take this opportunity to think things through now, so you’ll be able to deal with them then.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
Last week, both your ruler the Sun and Saturn, the planet of focus, have moved to accent your health, wellbeing and, obligations to yourself and others. That may sound a strange combination, but it’s about what’s good for you and, equally, doing good for others, something that means a great deal to you.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
Tempting as it is to analyse what was behind recent problems and difficulties, it will achieve little. Most issues will have been triggered by your ruler Mercury’s retrograde cycle, which is just now coming to an end. Not only will the cause become clear, even tricky problems will be resolved, sometimes spontaneously.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
For ages you’ve been aware certain complex family matters would need to be discussed and dealt with. But you were hoping for something that would force those who’ve refused to acknowledge the issue to join in, and tackle it. That’s now happening. Be patient and let things unfold in their own time.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
Thrilling as the ideas being discussed may be, you’re still unclear how they’ll fit in with your existing setup. The fact is, with the planet of growth and good fortune, Jupiter, positioned in Scorpio and introducing dramatic but welcome changes, what seems unlikely now could soon fall into place with ease.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
This week begins a dynamic new chapter of your life. Not only is Mercury no longer retrograde in Sagittarius, with demanding Saturn having departed your sign last Wednesday, a challenging yet instructive cycle has ended. Suddenly life will be easier. Tempting as it is to take the first offer, explore. There’s lots more yet to come.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
The time has come to give serious thought to what, and who, you spend your time on. While some activities and alliances are worthwhile and, in fact, pay off handsomely, others are less rewarding. And a few, not at all. It’s those latter ones that need to be rethought or end first.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
While you rather like the idea of luck, as a rational Aquarius, you don’t entirely believe in it. Judging by the rare and fantastic planetary activity involving your ruler Uranus, during the past month and as you move into January, things won’t just be good, they’ll be better than you believed possible.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
Every sign will need a few days to untangle the confusion triggered while Mercury was retrograde. Bizarrely, what you learn both about the actual situations in question but, as much, about the people involved will more than justify the time this takes. Knowing that, take full advantage of this. Don’t rush things.
