Watching existing plans slip away may be exasperating and irritating. Still, with Mercury retrograde until the 11th, even what seems solid could be flawed. Do the least. What you learn will more than justify any annoying delays.
20 – MAY 20
Clashes with those closest over practical matters are no fun to deal with. Still, discuss these, as it will prove informative. And, since arrangements remain in disarray until mid-month, explore potential improvements but don’t commit.
MAY 21 – JUN 20
You’re getting impatient about turning ideas into solid plans. Discuss these, remembering that even simple arrangements must be regarded as tentative. There’ll be several versions of plans before anything’s settled for good.
21 – JUL 22
Judging by the rather intense planetary focus on the use of your resources, you’ll be doing a lot of thinking. Between February 4’s emotionally intense Full Moon and urgent situations, everybody’s on edge. Go with the flow for now.
JUL 23 – AUG 22
Wednesday’s Leo Full Moon will bring emotional issues to a head. However, parts of your life will be in transition. So, deal with emotional matters now but leave future plans for later.
23 – SEP 22
Between the confusion triggered by your ruler Mercury being retrograde and unsettling events, changes are inevitable. Organise things so they’re flexible enough to ride out changes until mid-February. As a Libra, you want the best from life and relationships. However, this week’s unsettling events could disrupt this harmony. Knowing that, deal with what’s urgent and focus on clearing confusion in existing plans and the potential of certain changes.
23 – NOV 21
You’re not thrilled about being forced to reorganise elements of your life as you’re uncertain what’s best. Decisions may seem final, but they’re the first in a series of events designed to get you involved in activities that will be rewarding.
NOV 22 – DEC 21
In 2014, your ruler Jupiter moved to accent new ideas and since then you’ve explored some and got involved in others. However, things haven’t worked out as you’d hoped. They will once you declutter your life, and soon give way to great ideas.
22 – JAN 19
Once you relinquish control you’ll realise you’re free to focus on other more interesting matters. This is challenging but what you learn justifies it and is balanced by intriguing new offers that are far more exciting than you’d imagined.
20 – FEB 17
This is a week of change. However, the focus is on shifting your attention away from old pursuits and checking out new and potentially interesting ones. Explore and learn. Any decisions can wait.
FEB 18 – MAR 19
The issues you’re facing and ideas you’re exploring not only seem dull, they focus on life’s practicalities. Ironically, it’s what you learn while tackling these that will lead to the kind of inspiration you’re seeking.
