  • Aries (March 20 - April 18)
    Aries (March 20 - April 18)

    There’s no denying the appeal of offers coming your way but taking advantage of them could force sudden alterations in your lifestyle. Since you can’t stop these changes, you’re better off getting involved and shaping them to suit you.

  • Taurus (April 19 - May 19)
    Taurus (April 19 - May 19)

    Tempting as the suggestions of others are, they’d trigger shake-ups in parts of your life you don’t want changed. Yet once you allow discussion, you’ll realise they aren’t just wise, they’re worthwhile too.

  • Gemini (May 20- June 19)
    Gemini (May 20- June 19)

    With your ruler Mercury only just ending its retrograde cycle tomorrow, both facts and your priorities are in some disarray. Knowing that, explore changes and ignore practical considerations.

  • Cancer (June 20 - July 21)
    Cancer (June 20 - July 21)

    With the confusion that accompanied the retrograde Mercury, which ends on Saturday, you’re unsure what’s best. Explore every offer. Opportunities this stunning are unlikely to appear again soon.

  • Leo (July 22 - August 21)
    Leo (July 22 - August 21)

    Wonderful as plans may be, the resulting changes to your life aren’t so appealing. Say yes now, then explore your options. Urgent as things seem, your plans are unlikely to be clear for the next fortnight. Until then, keep exploring.

  • Virgo (August 22 - September 21)
    Virgo (August 22 - September 21)

    Monday’s move by Venus into Virgo enables you to win others over to even controversial plans. But there’s no rush. As your ruler Mercury ends its retrograde cycle on Saturday, facts aren’t necessarily reliable. Even urgent decisions should wait.

  • Scorpio (October 23 - November 20)
    Scorpio (October 23 - November 20)

    Your life is brimming with exciting promises but is short of guarantees. While you’ll clarify any issues around the 27th, when Mars confronts your ruler Pluto, for now you’re urged to take chances.

  • Sagittarius (November 21 - December 20)
    Sagittarius (November 21 - December 20)

    You’re in the midst of a period of growth, one that continues for months. Knowing that, respond to what’s arisen. But also ensure arrangements are flexible so that you can gain from new offers.

  • Capricorn (December 21 - January 19)
    Capricorn (December 21 - January 19)

    Since certain recent developments were the result of persistent efforts, you trust them more than those that appear suddenly. Yet you’ve earned the latter, too. Knowing that, explore every opportunity with enthusiasm. You’ll be glad you did.

  • Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
    Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

    Monday’s Aquarius Full Moon marks a turning point in personal matters. Some changes are expected, others are timely, and a few could lead to anxieties. Despite that, these changes are freeing you from habits that, while familiar, are restrictive.

  • Libra (September 22 - October 22)
    Libra (September 22 - October 22)

    Usually you don’t mind change but anxieties about its fast pace and a shortage of facts are making you indecisive. The secret is to plunge in, then allow events to guide you. Experience will prove more informative than discussion.

  • Pisces (February 19 - March 19)
    Pisces (February 19 - March 19)

    Usually, saying yes to every offer would be unwise. But you should do so now, while you’re still gaining from the superb alliance between lucky Jupiter, Saturn and your ruler Neptune. This ensures that nothing worthwhile passes you by.
