Shelley von Strunckel, one of the world’s top astrologers, writes a weekly forecast for Friday
Your stars for the week ahead.
ARIES MAR 20 – APR 18
June’s first half has been about change. While initially events seemed unsettling, you’ve realised these were timely. Remember this when more developments throw plans into disarray. Adopt a flexible approach so you can bid adieu to some arrangements and rethink new ones.
TAURUS APR 19 – MAY 19
After a chaotic period, suddenly things are coming together, though mostly not as expected. It’s tempting to analyse them in detail, but they are moving too swiftly. These may seem final, but the thrilling events promised by late June’s alliance between Jupiter and Pluto will change everything, and in wonderful ways.
GEMINI MAY 20 – JUN 19
Between last Sunday’s Gemini New Moon and the idea planet Mercury’s move into your sign, you’re juggling exciting ideas and possibly offers. Explore everything. Times are changing and so is your thinking, so don’t miss out on opportunities that’d be ideal for the new you who’s now emerging.
CANCER JUN 20 – JUL 21
Obviously you’d rather know more about what’s next before you let go of familiar, if outdated, elements of the past. But progress means being courageous in the face of uncertainty. Great things are coming in late June, so until then, declutter your cupboards, your mind and your life.
LEO JUL 22 – AUG 21
Accepting that certain plans aren’t going to happen isn’t easy, but it’s the first step to clearing the way for events soon to reshape your life. There may have already been hints, pushing you to move things more swiftly, but you’ll regret doing that. They’ll be well worth waiting for.
VIRGO AUG 22 – SEP 21
While you can’t live without decisions, ensure you can rethink, if not alter, your plans. The move by your ruler Mercury into the midheaven angle of your chart heats up talks, then the Full Moon on the 20th yields solid plans. Still, even simple ones should be regarded as tentative.
LIBRA SEP 22 – OCT 21
As a Libra, whatever you’re organising, you aim to make everybody happy. But now you’re contending with unsettled situations and certain grumpy individuals. It won’t be easy, but ignore them and proceed. Soon everything will be more settled, giving you a chance to focus on your own affairs.
SCORPIO OCT 22 – NOV 20
During June’s first half, certain familiar arrangements started coming undone. You were concerned and may have tried to halt them, but this week you recognise they were clearing the way for exciting, but unsettling developments. It’s enough to boost your spirits, and by the end of June, they’ll become part of your life.
SAGITTARIUS NOV 21 – DEC 20
Although you’re easy-going about most things, you avoid those who overplan. But that’s exactly what you’re dealing with and you feel you’re being drawn into arrangements you dread. However, the events triggered by the Sagittarius Full Moon on the 20th will change everything.
CAPRICORN DEC 21 – JAN 19
Despite June’s unsettling first two weeks, you saw how shake-ups eliminated problematic arrangements and alliances from your life. Still, you distrust certain situations, so wait and watch. The clash between your ruler Saturn and Neptune on the 18th will expose these.
AQUARIUS JAN 20 – FEB 18
Only weeks ago you’d have laughed at the idea that you’d even consider certain changes. But with your world shifting, these are timely and natural. True, there’s a fallout in terms of work and relationships, but your instincts are telling you that they will benefit your life and you.
PISCES FEB 19 – MAR 19
For ages you’ve sensed somebody wasn’t being straight with you, or that something was underhand. The link between Saturn and your ruler Neptune on the 18th exposes all deceptions, including personal matters you’ve been keeping quiet. Discuss them now while you can still decide.
