You’re by no means fixed in your habits or rigid in your thinking. This flexibility and inborn inquisitiveness is one of your greatest charms and core to your nature, as a Gemini. Yet, also, in certain arrangements, you’ll battle even the slightest alteration. These create a foundation from which you can explore, and grow. Yet you’re being challenged to shift. While, initially, you’ll battle any such changes, they’re timely, necessary and will begin a new, and rewarding, cycle.

Aries March 20 – April 18

The last thing you’re in the mood to do is apologise for something that you didn’t do. Yet in the long run it’s far easier to say you’re sorry now, and discuss the facts when the mood is calmer, as it will be within a few days’ time. You’ll be glad you did.

Taurus April 19 – May 19

By now you’ve undoubtedly realised that this is one of those peculiar weeks during which events over which you have no control will unceremoniously alter even the simplest of arrangements. While, ordinarily, you’d try to restore order, with things remaining unsettled until next week, those plans can, and should, wait.

Gemini May 20 – June 20

You’ve made excuses for not doing things, both to loved ones and those out in the world. But that’s always been to avoid embarrassing situations. Still, somebody’s discovered what you said was a long way from the truth, and is upset. Don’t explain or justify your words. Apologise, ideally from the heart.

Cancer June 21 – July 21

We all become attached to certain alliances, habits and possessions. Yet over the past month or so, events have forced you to question whether some of these are as important to you as you imagine. Intriguingly, in one or two situations, you’ve realise they’re not, and will let go of them with genuine relief.

Leo July 22 – August 21

There are several situations in which others have cleverly backed you into a corner. They made certain plans sound exciting, but only later you realised that, in agreeing to them, you’d be shouldering far more of the responsibility than anticipated. This isn’t fair. Say exactly that. Others know you’re right.

Virgo August 22 – September 21

Tempting as it is to battle for what you believe is right, judging by the current planetary setup, it’s worth asking why others think as they do. However wrong they seem, their explanation of what’s behind their views could not only be informative, those ideas could provide unexpected, and valuable, insights.

Libra September 22 – October 22

Over the past few days, you’ve been reflecting on those in your life who are what might be termed ‘hard work’ versus those friends, family members or colleagues whose company is, quite simply, a joy. The issue is ensuring you spend minimal time with the former, and plenty with the latter.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

As you’ve undoubtedly noticed, this is a tricky time, one during which surprising events are throwing even seemingly simple plans into chaos. Unsettling and, indeed, worrying as this is, what you learn now, and as you’re in the process of dealing with these unexpected developments, will prove astonishingly informative.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 20

While somebody has to inform one particular individual that it’s time they tightened their belt, that is ate less, spent less and lived more modestly, you’d rather it not be you. Suddenly, everybody’s insisted they’re busy. Just do it. You’ve a knack for confronting others yet, at the same time, encouraging them.

Capricorn December 21 – January 18

While, obviously, you’d prefer to avoid clashes, there’s no way around one particular confrontation. The individual in question lives in their own world so won’t notice or ask whether their decisions are causing problems. That being the case, take a deep breath and prepare to say what needs to be said, and frankly.

Aquarius January 19 – February 17

Only days ago you’d have battled changes in longstanding arrangements, mostly because you see no reason to do anything so dramatic. Yet within days, events will convince you that things not only need such alterations but that a top to bottom rethink would be of benefit to you and others.

Pisces February 18 – March 19

Tiresome as it is explaining why certain changes are necessary, especially when you know you’ll be facing tedious questions, there’s no choice. The irony is, the resulting discussion won’t just be informative in terms of hard facts, it will also help eliminate tensions between you and certain tricky or increasingly uptight individuals.
