IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TOMORROW
Mercury’s retrograde cycle ends on your birthday and it’s positioned in the most reflective portion of your chart. This indicates you’re in for a series of remarkable insights. Some will clarify how your attitude towards certain matters or even individuals has caused problems, some minor, others less so. But, also, you’ll learn how your somewhat fixed views have severely limited your options. It’s time to explore, and the further you venture into the unfamiliar, the better.
Aries March 20 – April 18
You’ll be shedding both possessions and elements of your life. Initially, this may not sound like news you’d welcome. However, it involves situations in which you’ve been trying to declutter your life, both of what you own but as much of various increasingly burdensome obligations. It will be a huge relief.
Taurus April 19 – May 19
While you can proceed with certain matters on your own, others simply can’t be done or dealt with solo. True, this could mean spending precious time finding ways to mesh your plans with those of the individuals involved. Still, what you learn in the process will more than justify the patience required.
Gemini May 20 – June 20
Planning ahead for the unexpected isn’t possible but you can be aware exciting changes are in the air. True, these are unlikely to appear until the Gemini New Moon, 25 May. That may seem ages from now, but the time will pass swiftly and, even more important, these will be worth waiting for.
Cancer June 21 – July 21
Watching arrangements you’ve worked hard to organise come undone isn’t easy. On the other hand, keeping them afloat has taken an increasing amount of energy for worryingly less return. While it’s understandable you may not want to let go entirely, at least consider giving other, more promising, pursuits first priority.
Leo July 22 – August 21
As you’re well aware, certain individuals aren’t just argumentative, they enjoy the lively banter that comes with such clashes. Sometimes you do, too, but not now. Which means sidestepping those vigorous debates when they arise, and doing it tactfully but firmly. It won’t be easy but you can do it.
Virgo August 22 – September 21
During periods such as this, when your ruler Mercury is just concluding its retrograde cycle, misunderstandings are frequent. Some are no more than that. But others are an invitation to investigate the background of those problems. Do that, and in the process, you’ll learn how to prevent them occurring again.
Libra September 22 – October 22
Increasingly tense issues need to be discussed. Much as you’d like to get these resolved, your instincts are that these should be addressed when the mood is right, and that’s not now. Bide your time. When that moment comes, you’ll know what to say, and others will be ready to listen.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
From your perspective, the ideal plan is one that’s made with facts, enough to be practical and with enough intuition to be wise. Yet with the actual circumstances you’re dealing with shifting, and regularly, you’re better off either making tentative arrangements or delaying them until the mood’s calmer.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 20
Everybody speaks with excitement about opportunities that come from out of the blue. However, while you embrace these the moment they arise, not everybody is as enthusiastic, as you’re undoubtedly discovering. Tempting as it is to win others over with explanations, be patent. They need time to think, explore and reflect.
Capricorn December 21 – January 18
Having left crucial arrangements in the hands of others, you’re observing their actions from the sidelines and getting more concerned by the day. The fact is, their perspective is different from yours and, inevitably, they’ll do things differently. Knowing that, rather than worry, watch and learn from what you see.
Aquarius January 19 – February 17
It’s rare that you, an Aquarian, will join others in commenting on or criticising anybody behind their back. However, somebody in particular has been so irritating, you feel the need to air your aggravation. Still, discussing these issues with the individual in question is by far your best option.
Pisces February 18 – March 19
Over the past few days, you’ve discovered several odd errors in business or financial matters. While under other circumstances you might double check them discreetly, with Mercury just ending its retrograde cycle and accenting these, the odds are good you’ve found genuine and easily remedied mistakes, nothing more.
