Aries (March 20 – April 18)

Yes, you’ve good reason to speak frankly, if not be blunt, with certain individuals. Judging by the current wrought up mood, others are feeling just as annoyed with you. Raise issues and discussions could turn into pointless battles. Wait until the mood’s calmer and you’ll make your point but without tiresome drama.

Taurus (April 19 – May 19)

Judging by the recent powerful alliance between your ruler Venus and the planet of vision, Neptune, you’ve a strong sense of what’s next and what you should do to make it happen. Experiencing those feelings and acting on them are two different things. Still, it’s worth trusting what your instincts tell you.

Gemini (May 20 – June 20)

If you respond to the connection between your ruler Mercury and Uranus by making impulsive decisions, it won’t be the first time in your life. It’s just that because these accent breakthroughs, plans as sudden as they are unplanned could free you from persistent restrictions or introduce you to something new and wonderful.

Cancer (June 21 – July 21)

Being ruled by the Moon, you’ll be more aware of the growing influence of this Thursday’s emotionally intense Full Moon. Knowing that, encourage others to discuss feelings as they arise. Yet also, bear in mind that they may already be somewhat overwrought, so could be more dramatic than the situation merits.

Leo (July 22 – August 21)

Few things annoy you more than those who waste time on minute dilemmas but manage to ignore far more serious difficulties. The real problem is that they’ve no idea how to approach these more complex matters and are hoping they’ll find somebody to advise them. That person might be you.

Virgo (August 22 – September 21)

Although you made a number of important decisions around the time of the Virgo New Moon on 5 September, you’ve had to rethink many of them. Straightforward as they seemed then, both circumstances and your priorities have changed. Waste no time worrying where you went wrong. Regard these as a trial run.

Libra (September 22 – October 22)

There’s good reason you’ve been sidestepping an especially tricky issue. But now the circumstances are changing and the pace is picking up, which leaves you no time for diplomacy. Ask what others intend to do, then explain what you have in mind. Only once the facts are clear should you begin to negotiate.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Nobody’s better at spotting the little lies others tell themselves as a way of escaping unappealing situations. Now that there’s a need to discuss one particular issue they’ve been avoiding, you’ll have to delve into these. Despite your knack for dealing deftly with such matters, even you will find it very challenging indeed.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 20)

You may still be hoping you’ll find a clever way to avoid facing one particular situation. But not only is that unlikely, the odds are good it will get worse. Discuss this with those whose judgement you trust. Not only will this clarify your thinking, they’ll have exactly the kind of advice you need.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 18)

Facts may be facts. There’s no doubt the misunderstandings indicated by the clash between Mercury and the precise Pluto, which is positioned in your sign, are worrying. However, between now and the time certain plans are turned into lasting arrangements, these and any other conflicts will be dealt with, and for good.

Aquarius (January 19 – February 17)

Exciting as the ideas or offers that came you way recently were, you’re still wary. This isn’t because of the actual arrangements but, rather, everything seems too simple. That’s no surprise, since the superb alliance between Mars and your ruler Uranus indicates events that aren’t just good, but better than you conceive possible. 


Pisces (February 18 – March 19)

Those who’re so self-obsessed they don’t even notice the struggles of those around them puzzle you. Yet judging by the intense emotions triggered by this Thursday’s Pisces Full Moon, you’ll need to put your own thoughts and feelings before those of others. The resulting insights could transform your thinking and your life.
