What the stars have in store for you.
20 – APR 19 Monday’s move by your ruler Mars into the most strategic portion of your chart indicates a series of situations that will require thought, analysis and often serious diplomacy. This may slow your pace, but is more than justified by what you will learn. Taurus
APR 20 – MAY 20 With your ruler Venus accenting decisions regarding your life or long-term goals, it’s time to review existing arrangements and consider future plans. As circumstances may shift, ensure your plans are flexible.
MAY 21 – JUN 20 You feel it is time to get things organised. Do this in such a way that you can make changes. With your ruler Mercury and two New Moons, on January 20 and February 19, all broadening your horizons, balance decisiveness with exploration. Cancer JUN
21 – JUL 22 There’s been immense emotional and practical fallout from last Monday’s Cancer Full Moon. For now, deal with what you can and discuss the feelings it arouses and the facts that are still surfacing. Be patient— the results will be favourable.
JUL 23 – AUG 22 Recent clashes were so irritating that you’re still trying to get the upper hand. This is a waste of time. The actual situations are undergoing much change and will continue to do so until late February. Acknowledge this and your life will be a lot easier.
Virgo AUG 23 – SEP 22 You are upset because either you or others are forced to make hasty decisions while short of facts. Don’t worry. With your ruler Mercury retrograde from the 21st until mid-February, plans are likely to change.
Libra SEP 23 – OCT 22 Monday’s move by Mars to emphasise various obligations shifts the focus from the people and pursuits you care about. While some issues are no surprise, others may be. Take it slowly. There is more to learn before decisions can be finalised.
Scorpio OCT 23 – NOV 21 As powerful planetary activity draws you into new situations, you need to explore ideas or changes that were previously unappealing because you were short of facts. Once you learn more, you’ll realise their potential.
Sagittarius NOV 22 – DEC 21 Between the arrival of Saturn in Sagittarius in late December and Monday’s move by Mars to accent the structure of your life, change is in the air. Challenging as this seems at face value, in the long run it will be totally worthwhile. Capricorn DEC 22 – JAN 19 Since certain issues are either sensitive or involve vulnerable situations, you’re concerned you could say the wrong thing. With your own position and priorities shifting, you’re better off keeping any arrangements flexible.
Aquarius JAN 20 – FEB 17 With Mars moving into Aquarius, you will be reviewing many arrangements and plans. However, with the Aquarius New Moon on the 20th triggering some more changes, what seems your best option will alter before anything is settled. Pisces
FEB 18 – MAR 19 You have a powerful sense of when it’s right to speak up and when to be silent. As forthright Mars moves into Pisces on Monday, starting a cycle of dynamic words and action, what you’ve learnt so far will prove helpful.
