Your stars for the week ahead.

Friday - - Contents - Shel­ley von Strunckel, one of the world’s top as­trologers, writes a weekly fore­cast for Fri­day


If you know what you want, you’ll rarely put off de­ci­sions. But with so much un­set­tled, changes have un­der­mined your ef­forts to make ex­cit­ing ar­range­ments. Com­mit to plans within the next few days as af­ter that op­por­tu­ni­ties are likely to change. It’s a mat­ter of now or never.


The ideas planet Mer­cury in Tau­rus ends its ret­ro­grade cy­cle on Sun­day, and with it, this pe­riod of con­fu­sion ends. How­ever, you’ll be un­able to an­swer many ques­tions it has trig­gered right away. Re­flect on and ex­plore op­tions so that once you make de­ci­sions, you’ll be sure they’re wise.


Now that the Sun and, as of Tues­day, Venus, the planet of money and re­la­tion­ships, are in Gem­ini, life is likely to be more easy. Your ruler Mer­cury also ends its ret­ro­grade cy­cle on Sun­day, al­though the con­fu­sion it trig­gered could last a few more days. CAN­CER JUN 20 – JUL 21 It’s not that you mind mak­ing changes, but the mat­ters in­volve your work or other obli­ga­tions and could in­flu­ence those clos­est per­son­ally or pro­fes­sion­ally. You’ve been un­cer­tain about what’s best, but Satur­day’s Full Moon brings feel­ings to a head, lead­ing to dis­cus­sions about what needs to be done. LEO JUL 22 – AUG 21 Hav­ing faced nu­mer­ous twists and turns, at long last you’re near­ing de­ci­sions. Con­se­quently, you’ll be re­lieved that Mer­cury’s ret­ro­grade cy­cle ends on Sun­day. Still, since the con­fu­sion won’t van­ish overnight, make sure your de­ci­sions and plans are flex­i­ble. VIRGO AUG 22 – SEP 21 While a ret­ro­grade Mer­cury leads to con­fu­sion, in your case it’s spurred you to meet in­ter­est­ing peo­ple and ex­plore new ideas and places. Once this cy­cle ends on Sun­day, you’ll be able to turn what you’ve learnt into plans that are more last­ing.

LI­BRA SEP 22 – OCT 21

Al­though you’ve achieved a great deal over the past month or so, es­pe­cially in fi­nan­cial mat­ters, it hasn’t been fun. With the Sun and your ruler Venus de­part­ing this por­tion of your chart to ac­cent new peo­ple, ideas and places, the fo­cus shifts to broad­en­ing your horizons, which will be less trou­bling.


In early March, the forth­right Mars de­parted Scor­pio and moved to ac­cent prac­ti­cal and fi­nan­cial mat­ters. You’ve achieved a lot but have more to deal with. Tackle them now be­fore Mars re­turns to your sign next Fri­day, be­gin­ning an in­tense cy­cle of plan­ning for the fu­ture.


As a fire sign you think and act swiftly, al­low­ing lit­tle time for re­flec­tion or un­set­tling feel­ings. Satur­day’s Sagit­tar­ius Full Moon not only ac­cents them, but you’ll be talk­ing them over with oth­ers. Don’t rush; talk­ing could lead to life-chang­ing in­sights. CAPRI­CORN DEC 21 – JAN 19 Those who plunge into ar­range­ments with­out thought amaze you. Your plans are be­ing re­ar­ranged, and an­noy­ing and, pos­si­bly wor­ry­ing as they seem, they’re an in­vi­ta­tion to con­sider new op­tions – ones which, were you not forced to ex­plore, you’d have re­jected with­out a thought. AQUAR­IUS JAN 20 – FEB 18 This may be one of the most un­set­tling weeks of the year, but when you look back, you’ll know that what caused you great­est con­cern turned out to be break­throughs. Ex­plore ev­ery­thing, in­clud­ing ideas or of­fers you re­gard un­in­ter­est­ing. PISCES FEB 19 – MAR 19 It may be tempt­ing to avoid talks about changes in your do­mes­tic or work life, but dis­cuss what’s arisen. It’ll throw your care­fully crafted plans into chaos but you’ve long sensed a re­think was in or­der. You’ll be amazed at how much you en­joy the process.
