BIRTHDAY TODAY

Long ago you realised that, in a number of areas of your life, you know what you’re happy with and what you’re not, and that’s that. Or so it seems. Circumstances have changed and so have you, more than you realise. Yet you’re still refusing even to consider certain ideas, activities or offers based on the past. Try each, if only once. You’ll be amazed and surprised to discover how much you, and your tastes, have changed.

Aries March 20 – April 19

If you’re short of facts or life is unsettled, it’s no surprise. Although Mercury, which is positioned in Aries, is no longer retrograde, the odds are good you’re still contending with the fallout from the range of errors and sudden changes that occurred then. Persist. Gradually you’ll clear them all up.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

The last thing you’re in a mood to do is argue about tedious details. But if you don’t speak up now, those who know there’s something amiss will assume things aren’t that serious or that you don’t care, when actually, you do. That being the case, raise these, and as soon as possible.

Gemini May 21 – June 20

Things have been moving so swiftly that even you, at your most energetic, have felt overwhelmed. Consequently, you probably won’t mind the slower pace that comes with the Sun’s move to accent questions, past and more recent. This gives you a timely opportunity to reflect on several decisions, some made in haste.

Cancer June 21 – July 21

Recent events were both exciting and disruptive. Which means that even carefully organised plans will need to be reorganised if not taken apart and reassembled, but in a completely different way. Challenging as this may be, your efforts will be more than justified by what you learn and the improvements you make.

Leo July 22 – August 22

Although your ruler the Sun moved to accent the structure of your last week, you’re unlikely to be clear what you need to focus on or why, at least right away. Actually, these delays are in your best interests, simply because with circumstances changing regularly, you’re better off making decisions once, and wisely.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

Ordinarily, when your ruler Mercury’s retrograde cycle ends, as it did on the 15th, things get back to normal fairly swiftly. But during this especially unsettling cycle, ongoing changes have contributed to the confusion. Frustrating as this is, it’s given you a timely opportunity to discuss and deal with tricky issues.

Libra September 23 – October 22

The time has come to take a tough line with somebody who’s always been a bit of a troublemaker. True you had reason to think they’d reformed and become more cooperative, and so hoped things would go smoothly. But the past few days’ events have made it clear that absolutely nothing has changed.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

It’s not that you’ve been secretive as much as you’ve been unsure of your own feelings about certain pivotal matters, so weren’t prepared to discuss them with anybody else. However, judging by Thursday’s encounter between the volatile Mars and your ruler Pluto, you’ll need to be ready to stand your ground.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 20

Few situations irritate you more than those in which you’re dealing with unimaginative individuals. Yet that’s exactly what you’re facing, and in a range of situations. Frustrating as this is, each is in some way forcing you to face and deal with certain practical realities you’ve been hoping aren’t true.

Capricorn December 21 – January 19

Good advice is worth taking. But listening to those who have a tendency to be pessimists, yet who insist they’re only being practical, is never helpful. However, you’ve a tendency to be attentive and, even more, to heed the suggestions of one particularly negative individual. Think twice before you act on their words.

Aquarius January 20 – February 17

Last Wednesday’s encounter between the Sun, and your ruler Uranus in the portion of your chart that accents your perspective on crucial matters, raised numerous questions. While you’ve answered some, many were so thought-provoking and you’re so enjoying the process of exploring them, that you’re hoping it will last for a long time.

Pisces February 18 – March 19

By no means are you narrow minded. Yet we all learn from past experience and, for this reason, you’ve automatically refused one particular idea or offer, solely based on the past. While that’s understandable, things have changed and so have you. At least explore this. You won’t regret it.
