Aries March 20 – April 19

With so much going on, around you and in your own life, you’re already overwhelmed. Yet with your ruler Mars in the most inquisitive portion of your chart, you’re in a period of discussion and discovery, often as exciting as events or encounters will be unexpected. Planning ahead? Impossible. The secret? Explore absolutely everything that comes your way, knowing you’ll edit out what won’t work in a week or so.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

After weeks of exploring your options, then discussing them with others, you’ve finally reached a point at which ideas can finally become plans for the future. Or that’s what you’re hoping. While, ordinarily, you’d be wise to deal with these in detail, you’re better off exploring even what seems unrealistic. True, as these stand now, they won’t work. But as you’ll soon discover, they’re taking you in the right direction.

Gemini May 21 – June 20

On Wednesday, the 13th, your ruler Mercury goes retrograde, triggering a cycle of confusion. Ironically, what you learn in the process of untangling those twists and turns will be amazingly informative. Keep this in mind when you’re wrestling with an overwhelming range of, on the one hand, changes and, on the other, ideas or offers as exciting as they are unexpected. Lasting plans? They can, and should, wait.

Cancer June 21 – July 22

You’ve a range of decisions to make, some minor, others far-reaching. However, frustratingly, in almost every case, you’re short of facts. Actually, this is good timing, simply because you’re unlikely to be clear about those facts until after the pivotal Cancer Full Moon at the end of the month, on the 27th. By then, both circumstances and your own priorities are likely to have changed, possibly more than once. In the meanwhile? Consider every option.

Leo July 23 – August 22

Having spent a great deal of time, thought and, in some cases, heart in organising a range of crucial but not always convenient arrangements, at long last things are in order. Or so it seems. Judging by the planetary shift, which influences certain difficult individuals and background issues, delays are inevitable. Irritating as they’ll be now, what you learn in the process of unravelling those matters will prove to be astonishingly timely and informative.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

Although your instincts are telling you good fortune is coming your way, events don’t seem as promising as you’d expect. This is partly because things are moving slowly. But, of even greater importance is the fact you’re looking in the wrong direction. While recent exciting developments demanded a great deal of attention, the focus is shifting to other, even more exciting ideas, offers or changes. Soon it will all be crystal clear.

Libra September 23 – October 22

While the period when the ideas planet Mercury is retrograde, as it will be from Wednesday the 13th, until early January, can trigger frustrating confusion, not everything will be troublesome. In fact, what you learn in the process of untangling those twists and turns will be unexpectedly informative. The challenge? Being patient. You’ve no choice but to wait and watch until all the facts are crystal clear.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

Often, when obstacles arise, you’ll do all you can to untangle them. However, once you understand this week marks the beginning of a period of review and, in some cases, the un-doing of arrangements of exactly this nature, you’ll resist the temptation to seek a workable remedy. True, initially, this might seem a failure. Still, wait and watch. Within a week or so, you’ll spot options that, only recently simply wouldn’t have been possible. Now they are.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

After having battled and, mostly, overcome a range of tricky situations, you’ve been eager to take a break. However, with Tuesday’s Sagittarius New Moon accenting a fresh perspective on both existing and future plans, a review isn’t just timely, is could lead to astonishing breakthroughs. Still, be aware, that with the ideas planet Mercury retrograde from Wednesday until 2 January, plans should be regarded as more of an experiment than anything lasting.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19

Once you understand that, whatever you’ve organised or are planning, changes are inevitable, instead of worrying about them, you’ll explore your options. This won’t just be informative, it will give you time to review once-promising plans and, equally, consider options that, only recently, were either unappealing or impossible. True, as a Capricorn, you’d rather have a clear plan. However, at the moment, you’re urged to focus on discussion and discovery. Plans, can, and should, wait.

Aquarius January 20 – February 17

As always, both your plans and your thoughts regarding the future are way ahead of anything that’s even crossed the mind of others. However, sudden changes in once-solid arrangements are likely to shake up your own thinking about current plans and, even more, those for the coming weeks, if not months. The secret? From the outset, regard them as an exciting experiment, one from which you’ll be learning for weeks, if not months, in advance.

Pisces February 18- March 19

Judging by the current and coming week’s planetary setup, even relatively simple plans or joint arrangements will need to be rethought if not radically changed. While, as a creative Pisces, you’ll find ways to reorganise things without drama, and often will manage to include timely improvements, not everybody will be as enthusiastic. The secret? Make the necessary changes, knowing that, once things are settled, you can discuss them with others later.
