MAR 20 — APR 18

While you of­ten com­plain every­body leaves de­ci­sions up to you, it’s with good rea­son. You not only think more swiftly than most, you’re will­ing to takes chances oth­ers wouldn’t even think of. Which means there may be ob­jec­tions to some of what you or­gan­ise. Lis­ten to con­cerns but stick with your vi­sion of what’s pos­si­ble. Things will work bril­liantly, and soon oth­ers will be thank­ing you.


JULY 22 — AUG 21

One of your great­est virtues isn’t just that you know what you want, but you aim high. While, usu­ally, you achieve those goals, at the mo­ment events seem to be un­der­min­ing even sim­ple plans. Ac­tu­ally, that’s best. This is forc­ing you to ex­am­ine, and up­date, those ideas and your vi­sion for the fu­ture. What once seemed your best op­tion could soon be­come even more thrilling.


NOV 21 — DEC 20

Sooner or later, you’ll have to con­front cer­tain in­creas­ingly tricky sit­u­a­tions in­volv­ing money, who’s re­spon­si­ble for what or your much-val­ued free­dom. Or it may be a com­bi­na­tion of these. While you rarely worry, you’re un­easy. The so­lu­tion? In­stead of think­ing things through, talk about your con­cerns with oth­ers now. They’ll be far more un­der­stand­ing and, bet­ter yet, far more help­ful, than you an­tic­i­pated.


APR 19 — MAY 19

True, with both the Sun and the for­tu­nate Jupiter ac­cent­ing your daily life or job, won­der­ful things are promised. But events seem some­what wor­ry­ing. In fact, you may be con­cerned that cer­tain vi­tal ar­range­ments are com­ing un­done. Ac­tu­ally, those changes are timely, and the be­gin­ning of a cy­cle of growth and ex­pan­sion that will bring ben­e­fits within week, and even more as the months to come un­fold.


AUG 22 — SEP 21

Although Mer­cury is no longer ret­ro­grade, the fall­out from both er­rors and un­ex­pected twists mean even sim­ple plans had best be re­garded as ten­ta­tive. Know­ing that, adopt an un­char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally ex­per­i­men­tal at­ti­tude to each day’s events and the fu­ture. The new ter­ri­tory you visit and chances you take now will, at min­i­mum, be in­for­ma­tive. But they could lead to some­thing as ex­cit­ing as it is un­fa­mil­iar.


DEC 21 — JAN 19

A com­bi­na­tion of tricky sit­u­a­tions and prac­ti­cal ne­ces­sity has pre­vented you from tak­ing ac­tion on ex­cit­ing and, of­ten, cru­cial plans. Now that the tide is turn­ing, and you’re in a po­si­tion to pro­ceed you’re anx­ious. The so­lu­tion isn’t anal­y­sis. It’s to do some­thing out of char­ac­ter and plunge in, your in­ten­tion be­ing to let ex­pe­ri­ence be your teacher. You’ll be amazed how much you learn.


MAY 20 — JUNE 19

It’s true, now that your ruler Mer­cury is no longer ret­ro­grade, life will be less com­pli­cated. How­ever, you’ll be un­tan­gling the con­fu­sion of the past weeks for some days yet. Iron­i­cally, what you learn in the process could high­light ideas or op­por­tu­ni­ties that, some­how, had pre­vi­ously by­passed you. This is a time of new be­gin­nings. There’s no bet­ter mo­ment than now to ex­plore these.


SEP 22 — OCT 21

By no means are you stub­born. Yet you’ve ei­ther ig­nored or re­fused to ex­plore cer­tain new ideas, mostly be­cause they seemed dis­rup­tive, and with­out the prom­ise of ac­com­plish­ing much. The is­sue is they’re new. So much, the best way to learn about them is ex­pe­ri­ence. That is, plunge in. Risky as this seems, once you’re ac­tu­ally in­volved, you’ll be much more op­ti­mistic about it all.


JAN 20 — FEB 18

While you’re in­cred­i­bly in­quis­i­tive, and love to know what’s go­ing on in the world and the lives of oth­ers, ac­tu­ally plung­ing into un­fa­mil­iar sit­u­a­tions is an­other mat­ter. Yet the cur­rent pow­er­ful plan­e­tary fo­cus on broad­en­ing your hori­zons in­di­cates it’s time to do ex­actly that. For now, do no more than ex­plore. There’s plenty of time and lots to dis­cover. Know­ing that, de­ci­sions can, and should, wait.


JUNE 20 — JULY 21

For ages you’ve been talk­ing about mak­ing changes in el­e­ments of your do­mes­tic life or ac­tiv­i­ties out in the world, but of­ten you’ve been dis­tracted. Now, sud­denly, events sweep you into dis­cussing those changes, but in a form very dif­fer­ent than you’d first imag­ined. That’s good, as with the ac­tual cir­cum­stances in ques­tion shift­ing, you’ll go through sev­eral ver­sions of plans be­fore you fi­nalise any­thing.


OCT 22 — NOV 20

Re­cent frank dis­cus­sions were as per­plex­ing as they were in­for­ma­tive. What you learnt about both cer­tain sit­u­a­tions and, even more, about the at­ti­tude of oth­ers both ex­plained a lot but raised nu­mer­ous is­sues. In­stead of re­treat­ing to con­sider these, as you’d usu­ally do, con­tinue those con­ver­sa­tions. Bet­ter yet, where be­fore you’d have said lit­tle, be­gin ask­ing ques­tions. You’ll be amazed how much fun it is.


FEB 19 — MAR 19

Few things are more dis­il­lu­sion­ing than dis­cov­er­ing those you thought un­der­stood your vi­sion are sud­denly chal­leng­ing your plans. You some­times for­get that not every­body shares your faith in what’s pos­si­ble, and cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als in­sist on guar­an­tees. Tempt­ing as it is to side­step the re­sult­ing dis­cus­sions and, pos­si­bly, in­ves­ti­ga­tions, you’re urged to get in­volved. They won’t just be un­ex­pect­edly in­for­ma­tive, they could of­fer fur­ther in­spi­ra­tion.
