Although every sign is influenced by the Full Moon, the fact it takes place on your birthday indicates that a number of situations have reached a turning point. While some are personal, most are likely to involve others and, probably, require that you compare notes about your priorities, the level of your commitment and, where appropriate, your feelings. Don’t assume others are aware of these. As you’ll soon learn, that’s by no means the case.

Aries March 20 – April 18

You’re capable of being a good listener and, in fact, when interested can be amazingly attentive. But now you’re in a hurry, so it’s another matter entirely. While you may already have figured out what’s best, at least take notice of others’ ideas. They may be more worthwhile than you anticipate.

Taurus April 19 – May 19

Usually it’s others who’re hasty, and you who insists they gather facts and think things through. Yet you’re so enthusiastic about one particular plan or, perhaps, passion, you’re ignoring even very significant facts. Delve into these before you’re any more deeply involved, and while you can if necessary back out.

Gemini May 20 – June 19

As much as you enjoy a lively exchange of ideas, when you’re preoccupied or have pressing obligations, you’ve a talent for brushing off those who’re attempting to distract you. Now, however, the individuals in question are worth at least listening to, as they could have access to information you’d find useful.

Cancer June 20 – July 21

One of this week’s dominant themes is teamwork. Even those who aren’t obliged to pull together on certain plans or projects will do exactly that. But by no means will that cooperative mood be universal. On the contrary, those who’re so helpful in some matters could be actively obstructive in others.

Leo July 22 – August 21

Since early in the year the powerful Mars has accented the structure of your life. Since then you’ve reviewed your work and domestic setup, extensively and in detail. Yet you’ve left certain matters undecided. Tackle them right away, ideally before early August, when Mars departs this portion of your chart for good.

Virgo August 22 – September 21

While there are certain matters others are prepared, if not eager, to discuss, several are off limits. Pressing as these seem, you’re urged to put off conversations until later in the month. On 30 July your ruler Mercury moves into Virgo, which both clears your mind and boosts your confidence.

Libra September 22 – October 21

After an unpredictable and frequently unsettling couple of weeks, you’re permanently on edge. While that’s understandable, you can relax. The planetary mood is far more benevolent, which means those once inescapable complications simply vanish. Now, in fact, seemingly impossible situations will fall into place, and with little effort on your part.

Scorpio October 22 – November 20

Any discussion of this week means reviewing late June’s stunning alliance between fortunate Jupiter and your ruler Pluto, and the unsettling developments this triggered. Since then you’ve attempted to making lasting decisions, but with limited success. Finally, you’re realising that’s because certain longstanding arrangements must go. That time has come.

Sagittarius November 21 – December 20

The last thing you’re in the mood to do is tackle tedious financial or business matters. However, judging by the combined influence of the Full Moon and tricky planetary activity, what you ignore now will only become more complicated and more costly. The faster you take action, the better.

Capricorn December 21 – January 19

Don’t be surprised if those closest, at home or in relationships out in the world, seem to need to talk things over. While you regard tricky matters as done and dealt with, they’re questioning ‘how’ and ‘why’. Pointless as this seems initially, you’ll soon recognise the benefits of further discussion.

Aquarius January 20 – February 18

True, the Full Moon brings feelings to a head, and can be unsettling. This is particularly the case with the recent one. Still, what you learnt about others, their plans and priorities and, even more, about crucial situations, more that justifies the emotional ups and downs you had to deal with.

Pisces February 19 – March 19

Tragic as the failure of a cherished plan seems, judging by the planetary setup, it’s a gift in disguise. You’ve been so absorbed by this particular arrangement that you’ve missed out on others, many with far more promise. At least explore these. What you learn could revolutionise your thinking.
