As an intuitive Piscean, you have a strong sense of when it’s important to press on with a plan or even a passion and, equally, when it’s time to halt to both your efforts and, where appropriate, to stop caring. True, the latter can be difficult, because when something or somebody matters to you, you care a lot. Still, the time has come to let go, and free your passion to move on to something more worthy of you.

Aries March 20 – April 19

The Sun’s move into your sign, into Aries and day on which spring begins, in the Northern Hemisphere, are one and the same. However, the time and, sometimes, date shift a bit each year. In 2018, this is on 20 March at 16:17 GMT. Still, feel free to begin celebrating now.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

Unsettling as sudden changes in existing plans may be, you’ve no choice. Actually, the more you think and learn about what these involve, the happier you’ll be with what is needed. Ultimately, in fact, the benefits they bring more than justify the minor disarray you’ll be facing over the next few days.

Gemini May 21 – June 20

Exchanging ideas is fun. Going over the same thing repeatedly isn’t. However, certain individuals aren’t as quick to understand what’s being discussed as you are, so will need to review things, possibly several times. Tempting as it is to sidestep this process, you need to be there, to listen and offer guidance.

Cancer June 21 – July 21

Tempting as it is to confront one particularly difficult individual about their uncooperative attitude, not only is it unwise, you’d regret it. You may think you know what’s going on in their life but, the fact is, there are secrets of which you’re unaware. It’s these that are behind their unpredictable mood.

Leo July 22 – August 22

For ages you’ve ignored once minor issues, and now they’re bigger and more worrying. Yet you still can’t seem to get around to dealing with them. Aim to tackle them before the 29th, when your ruler the Sun clashes with tough Saturn, and turns the issues in question into a major drama.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

Long ago you learnt how to work the moods of others, even those who’re determined to cause problems. Yet one particular individual has become a constant source of irritation. The secret is to consider cutting them out of the situation entirely. Say nothing. They’ll sense your tougher approach and will improve their attitude, overnight.

Libra September 23 – October 22

There’s a fine line between somebody saying they’ll do something about a concern you’ve expressed, and them taking action. Challenging as raising the issue in question will have been, you’re urged to get a commitment in terms of timing, and now. Otherwise, you could find that you end up waiting forever.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

Every four weeks the Sun moves into a new sign. However, on the 20th, it moves into Aries, which marks the beginning of spring in the northern hemisphere, and autumn, south of the equator. What’s more, this marks the beginning of the astrological year, a period worth both reflecting on and celebrating.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 20

Being a fire sign, you tend to dwell far more on what you’re already doing and intend to pursue than the cost or, indeed, compensation involved. Yet with Mars moving to accent exactly such matters, it’s worth giving the practical and financial side of these arrangements some serious thought.

Capricorn December 21 – January 19

At the moment, the path to achieving certain long cherished objectives may seem too challenging even to consider. While that’s understandable, once certain changes have taken place, you’ll exchange those concerns for optimism, enough you’ll feel ready to take things to the next stage. After that, the rest will be easy.

Aquarius January 20 – February 17

Because you’re both charming and interested in what others are doing, few are aware that when it comes to discussing plans, you can be very stubborn indeed. While, often, you’re right to stick with your views, at the moment you’re urged to at least consider seemingly unrealistic ideas. They’re actually the best option.

Pisces February 18 – March 19

While some of the events triggered by the Pisces New Moon were clear cut, at least at the time, others could take some time to make sense. That being the case, at least consider whatever comes your way. True, some may come to nothing. But, a few will evolve into something exciting, if not life-changing.
