ARIES MAR 20 – APR 18

The set­backs you’ve been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing since your ruler Mars went ret­ro­grade, in mid-April, have been ir­ri­tat­ing. This cy­cle ends on Wed­nes­day, and you’ll ben­e­fit from hav­ing dealt with a range of is­sues. Not only are you fi­nally free of these, what you’ve learnt will shape fu­ture plans.

TAU­RUS APR 19 – MAY 19

While this week of stun­ning plan­e­tary ac­tiv­ity prom­ises ex­cit­ing en­coun­ters, they won’t al­ways fit in with ex­ist­ing plans or even what seems in your best in­ter­ests. These are about break­throughs, in both cir­cum­stances and in your think­ing. Say yes to it all. Ob­vi­ously, you won’t pur­sue ev­ery­thing, but you will learn from it.

GEM­INI MAY 20 – JUN 19

Usu­ally, when oth­ers are com­plain­ing about de­vel­op­ments, you’re ex­cit­edly ex­plor­ing what’s arisen. It’s the same now. What arises this week is so pow­er­ful you’ll be drawn into life-chang­ing events. They may seem over­whelm­ing at first, but they’ll take your life to the next stage.

CANCER JUN 20 – JUL 21

Some­times op­por­tu­ni­ties are clear-cut but, judg­ing by the swift pace and twists events take, you’ll have to rely on your in­stincts. As a Cance­rian you dis­like taking chances, so could worry. There’s no need. By the New Moon in your sign, on July 4, you’ll be view­ing your fu­ture with op­ti­mism.

LEO JUL 22 – AUG 21

You know un­ex­pected of­fers are best dealt with by sim­ply plung­ing in. That will be your re­sponse to the cur­rent amaz­ing de­vel­op­ments. Your big­gest prob­lem will be cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als you’re close to, who’re less ea­ger. Don’t ar­gue. Pro­ceed, know­ing events will re­as­sure them.

VIRGO AUG 22 – SEP 21

In Au­gust of last year, the for­tu­nate Jupiter moved into Virgo, trig­ger­ing a year-long cy­cle of growth. While you’ve ben­e­fited from some events, oth­ers seem disruptive. Or­di­nar­ily you’d go into an­a­lyt­i­cal over­drive. In­stead, wait and watch. Things will come to­gether in a mag­i­cal man­ner.

LIBRA SEP 22 – OCT 21

Cer­tain long-stand­ing ar­range­ments aren’t what they once were. Yet you hope they’ll bounce back. Not only is that un­likely, de­vel­op­ments be­tween now and July 10 show you’ve bet­ter op­tions. Ex­plore them. While you may be able to merge old and new, you’ll also con­sider say­ing farewell.

SCORPIO OCT 22 – NOV 20

The rare ca­pac­ity for spotting what’s new and ex­cit­ing and, equally, what must go has given you a rep­u­ta­tion for an al­most psy­chic fore­knowl­edge. Yet, bizarrely, you won’t nec­es­sar­ily see the prom­ise in cer­tain ideas. Know­ing that, ex­plore ev­ery­thing. Soon you’ll re­alise how thrilling these are. Af­ter that, the rest will be easy.

SAGITTARIUS NOV 21 – DEC 20

The events trig­gered by the cur­rent link be­tween your ruler Jupiter and Pluto, planet of trans­for­ma­tion, will be as ex­cit­ing as they are pow­er­ful. Still, you could have lit­tle con­trol. Let go. Chal­leng­ing as this is, once you learn more, you’ll be re­lieved you al­lowed things to un­fold as they must.

CAPRI­CORN DEC 21 – JAN 19

There’s no deny­ing what’s com­ing your way is ex­cit­ing. Still, you’re anx­ious, be­cause oth­ers are mak­ing the de­ci­sions. But what’s taking place now jus­ti­fies re­lax­ing your usual firm grip on the reins. Soon you’re wor­ry­ing less, and say­ing yes to op­tions that, only re­cently, you’d have re­jected.

AQUAR­IUS JAN 20 – FEB 18

For months there’s been talk of changes in your ev­ery­day or pro­fes­sional world that would mean re­think­ing el­e­ments of your life. Ap­peal­ing as the idea of changes of that na­ture are to you, these go too far. Still, since you haven’t much choice, get in­volved. This proves in­for­ma­tive.

PISCES FEB 19 – MAR 19

When you see oth­ers wrestling with changes, you worry. Yet you know those events are in their best in­ter­ests. You need only en­cour­age the in­di­vid­u­als in ques­tion. And next? Fo­cus on the glo­ri­ous ways you’re al­ready ben­e­fit­ing from events. Your time has come. You need only say yes.
