Aries March 20 – April 19

As an Aries, you’re not only a quick thinking fire sign, while others are conducting endless discussions about the best way to get things done, you’d rather plunge in and learn from experience. Which is exactly what you’re doing. Keep in mind, however, that with the planet of ideas and communication, Mercury, retrograde until Friday the 15th, unexpected events could mean rethinking things, possibly more than once.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

Planning ahead may be a virtue and, even more, mean you know what to expect. However, with the fortunate Jupiter actually positioned in Taurus, sudden changes are about timely breakthroughs. Go with the flow. True, this may seem risky. The secret? Make a conscious decision to benefit from Jupiter’s bountiful influence. This, in turn, suggests you’re actually trusting what destiny is bringing your way, as you’ll discover by the week’s close.

Gemini May 21 – June 20

Since 23 August, your ruler Mercury has been retrograde, or moving backwards in the heavens, triggering a variety of confusing situations here on earth. Ideally, you’ll have put off what you could, and ensured arrangements you couldn’t ignore are flexible. The secret? Focus on exploration and, especially, trying out new ideas. What you learn could be as thrilling as it is unexpected.

Cancer June 21 – July 22

Usually your powerful intuition guides you through periods of unsettling change. Be aware, however, that those options are unlikely to be clear until the New Moon, on Friday the 15th, which triggers breakthroughs, both in circumstances and potential plans. And until then? Focus on shedding unworkable arrangements from the past and, at the same time, exploring recent, and intriguing, developments.

Leo July 23 – August 22

Looking back to August 16, when the Leo New Moon, triggered long overdue changes, you began a new cycle. Since then you’ve been exploring every option. This week, those plans come together and, to your surprise, you actually begin turning those ideas into action. The secret? With the foundation on which they’re based shifting, ensure arrangements and your thinking are flexible. The rest will fall into place magically.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

For you, as a quick-thinking Virgo, planning ahead is as natural as breathing. Yet between now and the Virgo New Moon, on 15 September, you’re urged to regard even simple arrangements as tentative. View these as a trial run, from which you’re meant to learn, and instead of struggling to get things right, you’ll take chances, knowing that whatever the outcome, you’ll learn from it.

Libra September 23 – October 22

The arrival of Mars, the planet of action and courage, into Libra on 27 August, began a six-week long cycle of change. While you’ve been wrestling with certain possibilities for ages, others have been as sudden as they were exciting. And details? They may seem urgent, but with so much still in transition, for now you’re better off focusing on the big picture.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

Recent events, from changes in circumstances to the decisions of others, have dramatically influenced your life. While you recognised some as timely breakthroughs, others are still worrying. Being patient won’t be easy. Still, wait and watch until the week’s close. The combination of sudden, and timely, changes and equally-welcome revelations will relieve all your concerns, possibly overnight.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

One of your greatest strengths is your zest for life and inquisitive nature. Yet the extent and pace of recent events is likely to have been overwhelming, even for you. This week’s discussions, and the resulting insights, will raise yet more questions. Explore these. Where they take you and what you learn won’t just be interesting, they’ll add something new, and very special, to your life.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19

You’ve a well-earned reputation for dealing with everything from difficult individuals to sudden and, often, challenging events with courage. Yet what you’re currently facing isn’t just taking you into new territory, you’ve little experience with the setting or the people involved. The secret? Let others know you’re eager to learn, then each day, focus on broadening your horizons. You’ll exchange those anxieties for joy, possibly overnight.

Aquarius January 20 – February 17

True, the dramatic changes you’re facing are inevitable. Some are the result of your decisions, but most are due to ongoing shake-ups. The real problem? Being a clever, and quick-thinking, Aquarius, you’re usually the first to spot what’s behind such changes and the direction they’re taking you. However, these are so far-reaching, even you are puzzled. The solution? Take things one day at a time.

Pisces February 18- March 19

For ages you’ve been aware that you’d have to reorganise certain longstanding elements of your life. What’s more, recently, things have been so unsettled that even simple plans don’t last long. Now, suddenly, circumstances change, and you’re able to think ahead. While this is a relief, first focus on certain dull but pressing practical matters. While they’re not exciting, they really must come first.
