The Sun’s link with inventive Uranus in your birthday chart is so powerful that it will both influence your own life and circumstances long after your actual birthday. But, also, the sudden changes and, ultimately, breakthroughs it triggers will influence every sign in some way. This, in turn, means that when you’re considering how best to handle the thrilling ideas and offers this ushers in, talk things over with others immediately. They, too, will be ready to make exciting changes.

Aries March 20 – April 18

If ever there was a time to be forthright about your feelings, it’s now. This isn’t just about warm feelings for loved ones, although revealing those would be timely. It’s also wise to reveal and discuss persistent doubts or concerns, and talk them through. You may discover you’ve drawn incorrect conclusions.

Taurus April 19 – May 19

Every Full Moon brings feelings to a head. However, because the current one accents the portion of your chart that involves complex responsibilities, there could be confusion about who should deal with what. Talk this through. The resulting conversations will clear this up, and a range of other issues, as well.

Gemini May 20 – June 19

Long ago you realised that for some people, gathering the facts, and ensuring decisions are based on solid information, is crucial. If you’re a typical Gemini, however, you tend to regard plans as more of a journey, one during which each day’s experiences shape where you want to go the next.

Cancer June 20 – July 21

It’s true, demanding as planning ahead can be, it also brings feelings of accomplishment combined with the knowledge you’ve imposed order on potential chaos. This is especially the case now, in the run up to the emotionally intense Full Moon, which brings both circumstances and your feelings to a head.

Leo July 22 – August 21

While you’ve had certain plans on your mind for ages, but done nothing, other events are so sudden you’ve no idea what to think. They’re all triggered by the link between your ruler the Sun and inventive Uranus, and while they may be disruptive, they’re also giving things a timely kick start.

Virgo August 22 – September 21

Being an earth sign, you don’t tend to experience the heightened mood swings others struggle with. Yet it would be no surprise if you react, and powerfully, to the emotions being triggered by the current Full Moon. Pay close attention to these feelings. They’re highlighting matters that need urgent attention.

Libra September 22 – October 21

Although the Libra New Moon was nearly two weeks ago, you’re still weighing up the wisdom of potential changes. Tempting as it is to plunge in, you fear that in your analysis of these, you’ve missed something. Probably not. But you’ll never know until you take that first step. Do it now.

Scorpio October 22 – November 20

As a Scorpio, you have a rare capacity to go deep within, so understand the intense feelings many ignore or are simply unaware of. Still, even you could be temporally overwhelmed by the heightened emotions triggered by the current Full Moon, which accents the most reflective, and vulnerable, angle of your chart.

Sagittarius November 21 – December 20

For ages you’ve been aware that certain complex, if not sensitive, matters need to be dealt with. But, to be honest, you haven’t been able to face them. Happily, the move, on Tuesday, by the charming Venus into Sagittarius will boost your confidence, enough you’ll raise these without a moment’s concern.

Capricorn December 21 – January 19

In certain situations you’ve no choice but to work with others. And this includes going along with their insistence you discuss your feelings, including doubts, frankly. Not only is there no chance you can avoid talking these over, once you have, you’ll wonder why you didn’t at least mention them before.

Aquarius January 20 – February 18

The last thing you’re in the mood to do is talk about anybody’s vulnerabilities, least of all, yours. However, with the current Full Moon bringing everyone’s feelings to a head, and accenting discussion, you’ll not only have no choice, what you learn about yourself and others could explain a lot.

Pisces February 19 – March 19

During unsettled times, such as these are, there is no single, perfect plan. This has nothing to do with the arrangements devised but, rather, with the fact that as circumstances shift, so, too, must those plans. That being the case, stick with the big picture. You can fine tune details later.
