Strange as it seems, you’re not always comfortable about accepting favours from others. These could involve something simple, to an important introduction or even something that would lead to exciting and, possibly, lucrative work. Yet you feel these are yours to deal with. Think about that. Do you really wish to live in a world where nobody helps anybody else? Yet that’s what you’re describing. Viewed from that angle, it should be easier to say ‘yes’ to those offers.

Aries March 20 – April 18

For ages you’ve known certain tedious but vital practical matters would need attention, but so far have managed to escape them. No longer. However, with both your ruler Mars and Mercury now accenting these, seemingly impossible dilemmas, you should be able to find a solution and resolve them, right away.

Taurus April 19 – May 19

Few things annoy you more than having lots to do, but being prevented from taking action by the laziness or thoughtlessness of others. Although it looks that way, the real problem is the dramas of the past several weeks. They’ve caused so much disarray, that discussion of any variety has been impossible.

Gemini May 20 – June 20

As much as you enjoy living a life full of interesting activities and intriguing people, you’ve gone overboard and haven’t left enough time for yourself. As a result, certain matters are now pressing and you’re feeling guilty about neglecting family or close friends. The sooner you tackle these, the better.

Cancer June 21 – July 21

Although the Full Moon took place last Wednesday, because it accented certain contentious issues, you may still be grumbling about misunderstandings if not very real clashes with others. Still, the mood is calmer, enough you can probably discuss these matters and, if you’re tactful yet persistent, manage to reach an accord.

Leo July 22 – August 21

One of the greatest benefits of being a Leo is your confidence and resilient nature, even in the face of seriously tricky situations, which is exactly what you’ve been facing. While this hasn’t been easy, recent events have made it clear your strategy in dealing with these wasn’t just wise, it was very clear indeed.

Virgo August 22 – September 21

Life’s been exciting, which is no surprise with both the Sun and powerful Mars in Virgo. However, now that Mercury, the planet of communication, has joined them, your mind is bound to be clearer. This, in turn, means it will be easier to discuss and deal with numerous increasingly pressing decisions.

Libra September 22 – October 22

The last thing you want to do is turn a minor conflict into a major drama. You can avoid these potential clashes, but it will mean putting your foot down with certain seriously difficult individuals. The fact is, they’re anxious about issues, too. It’s just they’re too stubborn to seek advice.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

Everybody dreams of offers that appear almost magically. Judging by the superb link between the Sun and your ruler Pluto, that’s exactly what’s been happening. Yet you’re wary and, bizarrely, distrust them because everything seems too easy. While such caution is sometimes wise, at the moment it’s just plain silly.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 20

Sudden changes in circumstances rarely cause you concern. That was the case with those triggered by last week’s Full Moon. Unsettling as events were, you viewed them as an unexciting, if unsettling, breakthrough. Others weren’t nearly as upbeat, and are still complaining. Let them. Their negativity is not your problem.

Capricorn December 21 – January 18

While the recent spectacular alliance between the Sun and Pluto, which is in Capricorn, will have ushered in thrilling ideas or offers, you must still take advantage of them. And, in your case, that could mean trusting somebody more than you would, ordinarily. Risky as that seems, you’re unlikely to regret it.

Aquarius January 19 – February 17

When there was discussion of altering certain longstanding arrangements recently, you really couldn’t see how anybody would benefit. But now that you’ve had a chance to think about it, not only do you recognise the wisdom of making those changes, there’s little question they should be made as soon as possible.

Pisces February 18 – March 19

Usually, the influence of the Full Moon dies down soon after. But because last Wednesday’s was in Pisces, you’ll have felt its influence then, and are probably still dealing with the questions it raised and the changes it triggered. This isn’t because they’re difficult but, rather, because they’ve been so interesting and illuminating.
