YOUR STARS

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - HOROSCOPES - WITH SHEL­LEY VON STRUNCKEL

ARIES MAR 20 — APR 19

You’ve of­ten com­plained about be­ing re­spon­si­ble for too much. Still, in mid-May, when your ruler Mars moved to ac­cent both joint plan­ning and de­ci­sion-mak­ing, you weren’t happy about it. How­ever, you and others are now work­ing to­gether, and those stresses have been re­placed by a new and won­der­ful team spirit. This week’s events test this but, ul­ti­mately, will prob­a­bly only add to your joint ac­com­plish­ments.

LEO JULY 22 — AUG 22

One of your strengths, as a Leo and a fire sign, is your abil­ity to stand your ground, what­ever it is you’re fac­ing. Now, how­ever, it’s the re­verse. You’re be­ing en­cour­aged to at least ex­plore op­tions you re­gard as un­fair, if not un­re­al­is­tic. At min­i­mum, you’ll learn some­thing. But with the ac­tual cir­cum­stances shift­ing, you’ll soon dis­cover your op­tions are far more ap­peal­ing than they seem.

SAGITTARIUS NOV 22 — DEC 20

Be­ing a quick-thinker, you usu­ally bounce back from set­backs swiftly. But those you’re cur­rently fac­ing are so com­plex you’ve no idea what to do. Ac­tu­ally, your best op­tion is to busy your­self with other mat­ters, ide­ally de­clut­ter­ing your diary of point­less plans, present and fu­ture. That way, when the tide turns in your di­rec­tion next week, you’ll be free to re­spond swiftly and with en­thu­si­asm.

TAURUS APR 20 — MAY 20

Once you un­der­stand that there’s no avoid­ing cer­tain sud­den changes and, more im­por­tant, ul­ti­mately they’ll prove ben­e­fi­cial, ev­ery­thing else will easy. How­ever, you’re in a cy­cle that’s about break­throughs, some an­tic­i­pated but others com­pletely un­ex­pected. While your ini­tial im­pulse may be to bat­tle th­ese, think again. Where they’re tak­ing you and who you’ll meet could turn out to be noth­ing less than mag­i­cal.

VIRGO AUG 23 — SEP 22

You’re right to de­bate, if not ar­gue about, trou­bling de­mands or the ques­tion­able facts on which they’re based. How­ever, while you’re usu­ally up to date on im­por­tant de­tails, ei­ther some es­caped your no­tice or, pos­si­bly, they’re be­ing de­lib­er­ately con­cealed. Know­ing that, fo­cus on gath­er­ing re­li­able in­for­ma­tion, even if this means joint de­ci­sion-mak­ing. Judg­ing by the swift pace, you’ll soon be able to al­ter th­ese any­way.

CAPRICORN DEC 21 — JAN 19

The Capricorn Full Moon, on Thurs­day, brings both is­sues that have been on your mind and more re­cent de­vel­op­ments to a head. While most will seem ur­gent, many can wait and will, in fact, ben­e­fit from thought and dis­cus­sion. Even those you act on swiftly could need to be rethought soon, which sug­gests those, too, be or­gan­ised so they can be al­tered, if not sub­stan­tially changed.

GEMINI MAY 21 — JUNE 20

Few things an­noy you more than deal­ing with unimag­i­na­tive peo­ple or re­stric­tive rules and reg­u­la­tions. How­ever, that’s ex­actly what you’re fac­ing and, un­likely as it seems, they’re in your best in­ter­ests. Ei­ther they’ll force you to fo­cus on cer­tain mat­ters you’ve been ig­nor­ing, or what you learn while bat­tling them will broaden your hori­zons, and in amaz­ing ways. The more in­quis­i­tive you are, the more you’ll learn.

LIBRA SEP 23 — OCT 22

Even at your clever­est or most per­sua­sive, tricky ob­sta­cles will still be a chal­lenge. Wor­ry­ing as that sounds, th­ese aren’t your fault or re­spon­si­bil­ity, they’re sim­ply yours to deal with. Once you un­der­stand that, you’ll fo­cus on find­ing a so­lu­tion, pos­si­bly ex­plor­ing op­tions you haven’t pre­vi­ously con­sid­ered. Iron­i­cally, the more you learn, the more this new world of ideas and peo­ple will in­trigue you.

AQUARIUS JAN 20 — FEB 17

If you’ve learnt from the past weeks’ twists and turns that even seem­ingly sim­ple ar­range­ments are un­likely to last as they were first con­ceived, you won’t be sur­prised when prac­ti­cal mat­ters or, pos­si­bly, is­sues with others de­mand a re­think. Ini­tially, this will an­noy you. But the more you learn, the more in­trigued you’ll be, by both new ideas and changes in your world, many en­tirely un­ex­pected.

CANCER JUNE 21 — JULY 21

Ob­vi­ously, hav­ing to stand your ground or con­front tricky in­di­vid­u­als isn’t easy. Yet each ex­pe­ri­ence or en­counter of­fers in­sights, not just about the ac­tual sit­u­a­tion in ques­tion but about sim­i­lar, and per­plex­ing, past sit­u­a­tions. Bet­ter yet, what you learn from this anal­y­sis will be in­for­ma­tive dur­ing the com­ing dy­namic, if un­set­tling, weeks, a cy­cle that cli­maxes with the po­ten­tially life-chang­ing Cancer eclipsed New Moon on July 13.

SCORPIO OCT 23 — NOV 21

Dur­ing June’s first half, you faced both tricky sit­u­a­tions and, worse, lacked solid facts. Where de­ci­sions were press­ing, you did your best. Now that more in­for­ma­tion is sur­fac­ing, you’ll need to re­think those de­ci­sions and al­ter ex­ist­ing plans. This alone will be un­set­tling but, worse, it means ex­plain­ing where you went wrong. For­get wor­ries about what others will think. They won’t care in the least.

PISCES FEB 18 — MAR 19

Giv­ing up on a plan, com­mit­ment or fu­ture vi­sion isn’t easy for you, as an ide­al­ist. Yet you’ve long sensed cer­tain of th­ese sim­ply won’t fit into the swiftly chang­ing world around you. Af­ter a few mo­ments’ dis­ap­point­ment, you’ll be re­lieved, be­cause you needn’t bat­tle to keep that vi­sion alive. But, even more, you’re thrilled be­cause you’re now free to fo­cus on a new goal or pas­sion.
