IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY
By no means are you shy about expressing your ideas, objectives or issues with others. From your perspective exchanges of this variety are as natural as breathing. Yet at the moment you’re dealing with certain individuals for whom being as open simply doesn’t come naturally. You may, in fact, suggest they reveal their views. Then, once you do, you’ll need to encourage them to discuss these. Still, the resulting conversations will be more than worth the effort.
Aries (March 20 – April 18)
When you believe in somebody or something, that commitment tends to be total and, equally, unshakeable. Yet the planetary setup urges you to, at minimum, question that. Things aren’t as good as they seem, and could get worse. Spot these problems now and there’s a good chance you can remedy them.
Taurus (April 19 – May 19)
While the intense feelings triggered by the Full Moon are recognisable as they arise, the influence of the recent New Moon was more subtle. For this reason, it may be only now, some days later, that you’ll be able to recognise their promise. The resulting changes are, in fact, very timely indeed.
Gemini (May 20 – June 19)
Only days ago, you would simply have sidestepped certain issues, mostly because you’ve already done everything possible to resolve them. Yet recent frank exchanges haven’t just given you hope, they’ve made it clear you misunderstood what the intentions of others were.
Cancer (June 20 – July 21)
Be wary of getting caught resolving problems that aren’t your responsibility and which, more important, are about principles and values, not practical matters. If others seek your advice, be cautious, as there are no simple solutions. And if they ask you to get involved, you’re urged to think even more carefully.
Leo (July 22 – August 21)
You think and act swiftly, so base decisions on facts you’ve gathered and your instincts. Now you’re being asked to justify your choices. This means reviewing your thinking and organising those thoughts and feelings in a way that others understand. The process will be as informative for you as it is for them.
Virgo (August 22 – September 21)
As a sensible earth sign, you know that while some situations respond to quick thinking and fast action, others require patience. Trust instincts that say forcing issues in one particularly tricky matter could result in complications. And if others are in a hurry? Tell them they’ll just have to wait.
Libra (September 22 – October 21)
The trick to getting through this complex week is to view even seemingly simple arrangements as tentative. That’s because many are unlikely to last. As important, instead of struggling to sustain plans and future arrangements, you’ll regard even seriously disruptive developments as the opportunity to rethink the way things are.
Scorpio (October 22 – November 20)
Nobody would blame you for assuming one particular individual is being secretive. After all, they’ve avoided your questions and seem to be hiding something. While that’s true, those feelings you sense are actually their guilt, both about the information they’re keeping under wraps and the resulting doubts they’re struggling with.
Sagittarius (November 21 – December 20)
While you appreciate others’ suggestions or their efforts to guide you in right direction, usually you’ll already have explored those options. In this case, however, not only is what they have in mind very different from anything you’ve thought of, it could prove to be hugely profitable, and in many ways.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 19)
Being blamed for problems that were neither your responsibility nor your fault is no fun. You rightly fear discussing these would only add to the confusion but, equally, are concerned silence will make you appear guilty. The solution? Mention them, but make it clear that in depth discussion can wait.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Your existing plans need to be rethought. This isn’t just wise, it’s necessary. Tempting, as it is to undertake this process all at once, you’re urged to take it in stages. First, invest time in exploring your options and then, having done so, discuss your ideas with those whose views you respect.
Pisces (February 19 – March 19)
As an intuitive Pisces, you’ll spot promise in situations others view as seriously worrying, if not disastrous. However, because you’re not dealing with these on your own, your biggest challenge is explaining those feelings of hope in a way everybody can understand. It won’t be easy but you can do it.
