Being a clever and quick-thinking Gemini, you’re rarely inclined to pause and go deeper, to sense doubts or, surprisingly, tender feelings about others. Yet with your ruler Mercury actually moving into the emotionally focused water sign of Cancer on your birthday, you’ll need to balance that sharp intellect of yours with a growing awareness of what’s going on within. The more you probe and explore, the more you’ll learn and the more access you’ll get to life’s emotional joys.

Aries March 20 – April 19

For ages you’ve been battling to keep one particular alliance or arrangement going, mostly because it once meant a great deal to you. But times have changed and so have you. This, in turn, suggests it may be wise to, first, create a little distance and then, possibly, say a fond farewell.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

Although it was a month ago, you’re probably still reflecting on the insights triggered by the Taurus New Moon. While this occurs every year, this one was special because on the same day the inventive Uranus moved into your sign, triggering a thrilling, if often unpredictable, new cycle in your life.

Gemini May 21 – June 20

As an air sign, you’re more interested in the freedom money gives you to explore what intrigues you, than analysing how to earn, invest or save it. Still, now that your ruler Mercury has moved to accent exactly such matters, discussions with others or your own growing fascination could lead to serious investigation.

Cancer June 21 – July 21

While, obviously, you’d rather have a new plan before you let the old one go, things are moving so swiftly you’ve no choice. Actually, this is for the best. Once you’re no longer dwelling on those familiar problems, you’ll be able to focus on the very different, and far more promising, ideas coming your way.

Leo July 22 – August 22

In recent discussions, you skipped over certain facts because they were dull and of little significance. While that was true at the time, things have changed and are continuing to shift rapidly. This means not only discussing those details now, it means updating those involved frequently if not every day.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

Being ruled by the clever Mercury, you’re more than capable of dealing with sudden changes. But being a painstaking Virgo, you’d rather have time to think things through and make plans. However, with Wednesday’s New Moon ushering in changes as sudden as they are unexpected, time is one thing you don’t have.

Libra September 23 – October 22

Bizarrely, seemingly minor differences have blossomed into a single, major, issue. The problem isn’t the actual situation but that one particular individual would prefer these not be resolved, at least right away. Since you don’t care either, back off and allow those who care about the timing to take the initiative.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

There is no wrong way to do the right thing. However, the fact you’ve been cornered into taking action swiftly and probably without time to explain what’s going on could lead to misunderstandings, if not criticism. For now, ignore it. When things are more settled, you can update others on what happened.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 20

After endless discussion and debate, you’re relieved to learn one particular individual is finally ready to turn the plans you’ve been exploring into action. Note, however, the slow pace you’ve endured is normal to them, which means each step will take longer than you expect. Acknowledge that, and everything else will go smoothly.

Capricorn December 21 – January 19

Just when you were thinking there’s no solution for a particularly tricky issue, an inspiring conversation or surprise shift in circumstances has changed everything. As a cautious Capricorn, your inclination is to weigh up your options. Don’t. Judging by the current swift pace, you’ve no choice but to take action right away.

Aquarius January 20 – February 17

Every two years, Mars, the planet of ego visits your sign. It arrived in Aquarius in mid-June and remains for most of the rest of this year. This is timely, since changes in several elements of your life will raise questions about whether certain familiar activities, pursuits and habits still suit you.

Pisces February 18 – March 19

Being a compassionate Pisces, you’re moved by others’ struggles. But the fact is, you, and the world around you, are experiencing exciting but often disruptive change and growth. While most are enjoying it, certain individuals are determined to complain. Ignoring them won’t be easy but it’s the best strategy.
