ARIES MAR 20 — APR 18

The prob­lem isn’t the sud­den­ness of ex­cit­ing ideas, of­fers or changes but that with things mov­ing so swiftly, you must base de­ci­sions more on in­stinct than in­for­ma­tion. If you can’t pro­vide the va­ri­ety of hard facts cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als seek, say noth­ing or sim­ply avoid them un­til things are set­tled. And that, judg­ing by the swift pace at which events are tak­ing place, will be very soon.

TAURUS APR 19 — MAY 19

Usu­ally, you weigh up de­ci­sions care­fully so once they’ve been made, you’re sure they’re wise. How­ever, judg­ing by the se­ries of pow­er­ful as­pects be­ing formed by your ruler Venus to most of the plan­e­tary heavy­weights be­tween now and mid-Novem­ber, even the sim­plest of ar­range­ments is likely to change, and fre­quently. Know­ing this, in­stead of strug­gling to make a sin­gle plan, take chances and learn from those changes.

GEMINI MAY 20 — JUNE 20

Or­di­nar­ily you en­joy the chal­lenge of de­vis­ing so­lu­tions, even for se­ri­ously tricky si­t­u­a­tions. So when the re­spon­si­bil­ity for deal­ing with sev­eral such mat­ters is taken out of your hands, you’re not ex­actly thrilled. How­ever, the in­di­vid­u­als in ques­tion are bet­ter in­formed or sit­u­ated to take ac­tion than you are. Be­sides, sev­eral other dilem­mas don’t just need your at­ten­tion – in some cases, the sit­u­a­tion is in­creas­ingly ur­gent.

CANCER JUNE 21 — JULY 21

The in­tense ups and downs you’re ex­pe­ri­enc­ing, both in the cir­cum­stances you’re deal­ing with and your mood, is no sur­prise. True, the cur­rent roller­coaster of events is speed­ing up progress but has left you with­out re­as­sur­ing facts and, pos­si­bly, lack­ing in backup. Still, by the week’s close, there’ll have been enough pos­i­tive, up­beat de­vel­op­ments that your faith, in the present and the fu­ture, will be re­stored.

LEO JULY 22 — AUG 21

While the views of oth­ers about your ac­tiv­i­ties mat­ter, you rarely base de­ci­sions on their ap­proval. Yet clashes with cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als are strangely up­set­ting. That’s as much be­cause th­ese mat­ters rouse deep per­sonal feel­ings, if not doubts you’re usu­ally un­aware of – or even ig­nore. Note th­ese but con­tinue to pur­sue what you be­lieve in. Your ef­forts and faith in your­self will soon be re­warded.

VIRGO AUG 22 — SEP 21

As much as you’d like to deal with the tricky prac­ti­cal is­sues you’re fac­ing, then achieve an ac­cord with oth­ers, this will take longer and be far more com­plex than an­tic­i­pated. Wor­ry­ing as that sounds, this gives ev­ery­body in­volved time to ex­plore var­i­ous op­tions. While some are straight­for­ward, some will be promis­ing yet some­what risky. At least ex­plore the lat­ter. Ul­ti­mately, it will work fan­tas­ti­cally well.

LIBRA SEP 22 — OCT 22

Life would be eas­ier if you could make de­ci­sions once, then keep them. But with your ruler Venus mov­ing into a new sign and form­ing pow­er­ful plan­e­tary al­liances be­tween now and mid-month, ide­ally, you’ll be fo­cus­ing on ex­plo­ration and ex­per­i­men­ta­tion. Learn what you can, con­sid­er­ing what would work and what seems ques­tion­able and what should go. Only once that’s clear is it time to plan ahead.

SCORPIO OCT 23 — NOV 21

Just weeks ago you’d have dis­missed cer­tain plans or ideas as fas­ci­nat­ing but com­pletely un­re­al­is­tic. Yet since then, the ex­pan­sive Jupiter has moved into Scorpio, trig­ger­ing a year-long cy­cle of growth. While some events are im­me­di­ately recog­nis­able as worth­while, oth­ers rouse your in­ter­est by chal­leng­ing fa­mil­iar ar­range­ments. Th­ese aren’t just worth in­ves­ti­gat­ing – ask se­ri­ous ques­tions as you pro­ceed. What and who you en­counter could be life-chang­ing.

SAGITTARIUS NOV 22 — DEC 20

You’re of­ten lec­tured for not plan­ning ahead. But, mostly, it doesn’t come nat­u­rally to Sagit­tar­i­ans. Yet judg­ing by the cur­rent com­plex si­t­u­a­tions you’re fac­ing, you may wish you were bet­ter pre­pared. This is no sur­prise. With your ruler Jupiter po­si­tioned in the most strate­gic part of your chart for a year, you’ll be un­der­tak­ing a ma­jor re­or­gan­i­sa­tion. This in­cludes de­vel­op­ing a new way of or­gan­is­ing your life.

CAPRICORN DEC 21 — JAN 18

Plan­ning ahead may be a virtue. How­ever, the pow­er­ful yet pos­i­tive shake-ups trig­gered by the stun­ning al­liance be­tween your ruler Saturn and Uranus on Satur­day the 11th shouldn’t be un­der­es­ti­mated. Dra­matic change is in the air. So while leav­ing ar­range­ments in­volv­ing how you live, work or keep­ing fam­ily mat­ters flex­i­ble runs counter to your Capricorn prac­ti­cal streak, your in­stincts are al­ready telling you it’s wise. And they’re right.

AQUARIUS JAN 19 — FEB 18

Be­cause you’re both in­quis­i­tive and rest­less, you en­joy meet­ing in­ter­est­ing peo­ple, and ven­tur­ing into new ter­ri­tory in terms of your ideas and, of­ten, your ac­tiv­i­ties. But the shake-ups ush­ered in by the pow­er­ful link be­tween your ruler Uranus and Saturn on the 11th may seem un­wel­come, if not over­whelm­ing, at least at first. At a min­i­mum, ex­plore th­ese. They’re about broad­en­ing your hori­zons, per­son­ally, cre­atively or pro­fes­sion­ally.

PISCES FEB 19 — MAR 19

You love to keep ev­ery­body happy. Cur­rently, your ide­al­is­tic side is hop­ing to avoid clashes re­gard­ing cer­tain re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. The over­all be­hav­iour of the in­di­vid­ual in ques­tion isn’t your prob­lem. It’s about en­sur­ing they hon­our com­mit­ments to you. De­spite your dread of ad­dress­ing this, do it. And soon. Once it’s cleared up, the mood will im­prove, and you’ll be grate­ful you took a firm stand.
