IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY

During times of growth and transition, as is the case with fortunate Jupiter in your sign, life’s about exploration. It’s about discovery and meeting new people. Exciting and promising as what and who you encounter may be, steer clear of making commitments, at least for now. The trick is to show interest and discuss future plans, but stop there. There’s much more yet to come, and much of that will be better than, today, you’d imagine possible.

Aries March 20 – April 18

Just when you’re under pressure to get things done, obstacles as sudden as they are complicated slow the pace. Tempting as it is to ignore these in the hope any details can be tackled later, you’d soon regret it. These issues are more tricky than they seem. Deal with them once, and properly.

Taurus April 19 – May 19

The communication planet Mercury has just joined the Sun and fortunate Jupiter in accenting your work or daily routine. Unlikely as it seems that anything could shake things up, and still less be exciting, that’s exactly what’s coming. The only challenge is, it’s up to you to take advantage of these developments.

Gemini May 20 – June 19

Dealing with others’ anxiety is never easy, especially now, with so much in transition. The trick is to avoid discussing either complications or the unsettled feelings they arouse and instead concentrate on what’s next. This may annoy others now, but they’ll soon be grateful you kept the focus on what’s most important.

Cancer June 20 – July 21

Although the New Moon took place over a week ago, because it accented the structure of your life and, especially, prompted you to venture into unfamiliar territory, it’s still having an influence. Continue, bearing in mind, however, the coming week’s unsettling mood could be distracting and, therefore, disrupt that process of exploration.

Leo July 22 – August 21

As a fire sign, once things are dealt with, you generally focus on whatever’s next. Yet while one or two recent clashes have been settled, you’re still unhappy with how things worked out. This is understandable. Still, tempting as it is to rethink arrangements, for now, nothing can be done. Move on.

Virgo August 22 – September 21

Your ruling planet Mercury moved into Virgo in late July, triggering a lengthy, unsettling but ultimately informative cycle of personal questioning and growth. A few days ago it departed, and is now accenting the wise use of your resources. This offers you a timely opportunity to review what you’ve experienced and learnt.

Libra September 22 – October 21

As a Libra, you know when to speak up versus those moments when it’s better if nothing’s said. Of course you don’t think of this until you’re dealing with somebody who’s completely lacking any such sense of timing, as is the case now. Ironically, their frankness could prove unexpectedly helpful.

Scorpio October 22 – November 20

That certain arrangements are taking time to finalise is no surprise. While others were optimistic about things going smoothly, you’ve long been aware of unspoken issues, some of a general nature, others your own. Now, however, you need to get things moving. That’s best done by raising your personal concerns.

Sagittarius November 21 – December 20

Of the twelve signs, you’re probably more open about your ideas, plans and feelings than most. Yet even you keep certain matters to yourself. It’s these the current alliance between the communication planet Mercury and your ruler Jupiter will expose, and just when it’s vital they be discussed, and frankly.

Capricorn December 21 – January 19

Few situations are more difficult to deal with than those in which you’re dealing with individuals who’re unpredictable. The last thing you need is to be uncertain what they’ll do or say. Or, alternatively, you could abandon your usual micro-managing and simply see what happens. Bizarre as it seems, you might even enjoy it.

Aquarius January 20 – February 18

Watching certain longstanding plans come undone may be distressing, or it will be until you realise these have been difficult from the outset. Once you’ve acknowledged that, then the idea of either completely rethinking them or, possibly, letting them go will become increasingly appealing. It would also be wise.

Pisces February 19 – March 19

The powerful and, often, unsettling eclipsed Pisces Full Moon may have been nearly a month ago, but you’re still experiencing aftershocks. While some involve changes you’ve already undertaken, a few have to do with arrangements you’ve been trying to shore up. Consider letting them go. Ultimately, you’ll be glad you did.
