HOROSCOPE READ­INGS FOR THE MONTH AHEAD

Town & Country (Philippines) - - STARS SIGNS - By Katharine Mer­lin

ARIES MARCH 21–APRIL 20

There seem to be lots of shifts and changes in the air for you this month. With your rul­ing planet Mars in the down-to-earth sign of Taurus un­til the 21st, prac­ti­cal con­sid­er­a­tions must take prece­dence now, but open your mind to the idea of new ar­range­ments that free you from the past. Your clos­est re­la­tion­ships are ac­cented by both Venus and the new Moon, pre­sent­ing chal­lenges and urg­ing you to for­give and for­get and move to­ward a brighter fu­ture.

TAURUS APRIL 21–MAY 21

With force­ful Mars in your sign un­til the 21st, your will to win is driv­ing you, but awk­ward is­sues around joint fi­nances de­mand a great deal of fi­nesse. Some prob­lems may not be set­tled un­til Saturn turns di­rect in mid-Au­gust, but you can break through bar­ri­ers and get on a more pro­duc­tive track near the 17th. Per­son­ally, your will­ing­ness to make con­ces­sions will work won­ders as April winds down.

GEMINI MAY 22–June 21

Part­ners’ in­abil­ity to live up to your ex­pec­ta­tions may dis­ap­point you this month, so fo­cus on your own pur­suits and the in­trigu­ing so­cial and cre­ative ac­tiv­i­ties you’re in­volved in. With Mer­cury, your ruler, go­ing out of sync from April 9 un­til May 3, your in­de­ci­sion is jus­ti­fied, so give your­self a break and wait and see. Mars’s en­trance into your birth sign on the 21st revs up your en­ergy and your spir­its.

CANCER June 22–JuLY 22

April will be a lively month, be­cause the Sun is at the top of your chart and jaunty Jupiter dom­i­nates. Pro­fes­sion­ally, you can make great strides, although how much you’ve gained may not be ev­i­dent un­til mid-May. Un­til the 21st, Mars’s in­flu­ence ac­cents the im­por­tance of dar­ing to go off the beaten track. Ro­man­tic is­sues should start to un­tan­gle once Venus be­gins mov­ing for­ward af­ter the 15th.

LEO JULY 23–Au­GuST 23

Ag­gres­sive Mars is out of sync with your birth sign un­til the 21st, ac­ti­vat­ing your am­bi­tions but arous­ing con­flicts at the same time. Yet with the Sun in Aries as­pect­ing lucky Jupiter, travel and dis­tant con­tacts will won­der­fully shift your per­spec­tive. Re­sist the urge to get quick re­sults, and in­stead fo­cus on the over­view. Un­til Mer­cury turns di­rect on May 3, the an­swers you’re seek­ing don’t seem to be forth­com­ing.

VIRGO AU­GUST 24–SePTeM­BeR 23

With Venus con­tact­ing Saturn twice this month, on­go­ing is­sues with a key fig­ure in your life seem to be throw­ing you off your stride. How­ever, op­por­tu­ni­ties that crop up near the 7th ap­pear ben­e­fi­cial, if not life-chang­ing. With pow­er­ful Mars ris­ing to the top of your chart, you’re en­ter­ing an ac­tive new cy­cle. Mean­while, don’t make snap judg­ments about those who mat­ter to you.

LIBRA SEPTEM­BER 24–OC­TO­BeR 23

Jupiter is in your sign, which means you’re in a cy­cle of self-dis­cov­ery and new di­rec­tions, and this month the plan­ets urge you to be true to your­self and to en­cour­age oth­ers to do the same. Re­la­tion­ships may be in a state of flux, but once Venus turns di­rect on the 15th you’ll be­gin to see the path ahead clearly. The new Moon in prag­matic Taurus ac­cents fi­nan­cial ar­range­ments that sta­bi­lize your af­fairs.

SCORPIO OC­TO­BER 24–nOVeM­BeR 22

Oth­ers seem ea­ger to support you—as long as you al­low them in. With Mer­cury chang­ing di­rec­tion un­til early May, a cer­tain amount of con­fu­sion is in­evitable, and with ro­man­tic, emo­tional Venus un­der siege, mis­in­ter­pre­ta­tions and de­fen­sive re­ac­tions will lead to hurt feel­ings. Still, all should come right as April winds down, and the new Moon of the 26th lights up your per­sonal skies.

SAGITTARIUS NOVEM­BER 23–De­CeM­BeR 21

Part­ners don’t seem to be on the same page this month, but with Jupiter open­ing up your world, your hori­zons are ex­pand­ing. Sagit­tar­i­ans tend to be gre­gar­i­ous, and this is def­i­nitely the time to forge new con­nec­tions. And while you do have to guard against spread­ing your­self too thin, you should not hes­i­tate to ex­plore in­trigu­ing op­tions. Work comes first, though, as April winds down.

CAPRICORN DE­CEM­BER 22–JAn­uARY 20

Ups and downs will char­ac­ter­ize this month, but with Jupiter in your fa­vor you hold a win­ning hand. Mak­ing your pres­ence felt is es­sen­tial near the full Moon of the 11th, so don’t hang back. How­ever, mis­un­der­stand­ings may cause need­less stress— es­pe­cially near the 8th and 21st. So try to re­main as ob­jec­tive as pos­si­ble, be­cause oth­ers’ re­ac­tions won’t be as neg­a­tive as they seem.

AQUARIUS JAN­UARY 21–Fe­BRu­ARY 19

With stress-pro­duc­ing Mars at the bot­tom of your chart, con­di­tions at home may be un­set­tling, or you may feel overly driven and anx­ious. Fi­nan­cial mat­ters could be a con­cern, with fleet­ing aspects cast­ing a cloud as well. What does look en­cour­ag­ing are pos­si­bil­i­ties for travel and an open­ing up of new prospects. By month’s end you ap­pear to be turn­ing a cor­ner that gets you onto firmer ground.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 20–MARCH 20

You can work out new pro­fes­sional/ fi­nan­cial ar­range­ments this month, but it likely won’t be easy. So seize op­por­tu­ni­ties when they arise—but be pa­tient and flex­i­ble. With Saturn turn­ing ret­ro­grade at the top of your chart, it won’t be un­til mid-Au­gust that you’ll gain the per­spec­tive you need to make cru­cial de­ci­sions. Get away near the 26th if you can. A change of scenery prom­ises to work won­ders.
