Shelley von Strunckel, one of the world’s top astrologers, writes a weekly forecast for Friday
ARIES MAR 20 – APR 18
Unnecessary complications are annoying, but this week, it becomes clear that they’re crucial to exploring intriguing ideas. Some involve your domestic life, others activities out there. Making the best of these needs serious investigation, and you’ll know why they’re a worthwhile investment.
TAURUS APR 19 – MAY 19
There’s no avoiding complex issues and differences with others. Once you understand that each offers valuable insight, you’ll focus on what you can learn. However, many are so complex they require patience, effort and negotiation, but you’ll know more about circumstances and the puzzling attitude of individuals.
GEMINI MAY 20 – JUN 19
Dealing with those who lack imagination is always challenging. What’s more, delve into current obstacles in depth and you’ll realise the few options you have. So, when tackling business or finances, just do what is required, otherwise explore ideas with others – it will revolutionise your thinking.
CANCER JUN 20 – JUL 21
Although there’s no sidestepping some obstacles, they could prove informative. Link these with Monday’s Cancer New Moon, which constitutes a sort of personal new year for you, and you’ll be rethinking your priorities. This makes it easier to say farewell to unworkable arrangements.
LEO JUL 22 – AUG 21
After a fast-paced couple of weeks, situations suddenly involve difficult individuals and precise details. While initially shocking, you’ll soon realise how much you’re learning. Resist the urge to do the minimum and investigate what and who are involved.
VIRGO AUG 22 – SEP 21
Once you have the facts, you can deal with almost anything. But between unexpected revelations and sudden changes, even the simplest plans won’t last. This means you can explore options without committing, so broaden your horizons. What you learn and who you encounter could be life-changing.
LIBRA SEP 22 – OCT 21
While recent events have been exciting, turning them into lasting plans is another matter. You’d prefer to talk these over, but the demands of certain people leave little time for even brief discussions. Ensure what you organise is flexible so as things change, arrangements can too.
SCORPIO OCT 22 – NOV 20
When you know who and what you’re handling, being decisive is easy. However, you’re at the end of a long, if thrilling, complex period, where things are still too unsettled to commit. Instead, make tentative plans. This gives everybody time to explore what’s exciting and consider what should go.
SAGITTARIUS NOV 21 – DEC 20
Since late May, circumstances have forced you to be patient. Then, everything happened at once and you’re left making decisions either in a rush or while short of details. You can’t avoid organising things, but you can ensure flexibility. This will suit you, and others will be thankful as well.
CAPRICORN DEC 21 – JAN 19
Between the recent rare alliance between Jupiter and Pluto, which is in Capricorn, and this week’s potent planetary activity, life’s great. While you’re eager to make plans, facts are in short supply, so make halfway arrangements. This approach gives you room to manoeuvre.
AQUARIUS JAN 20 – FEB 18
Few things annoy you more than those who refuse to consider changes, as well as pointless rules. But that’s what you’re facing. You need only make loose plans. The trick is to put things off where possible and make space for adjustments. You’ll soon realise how wise it was.
PISCES FEB 19 – MAR 19
Don’t make the mistake of assuming that others are aware of your plans or thoughts. While you may have discussed them, times have changed and so have your priorities. Debates will slow progress in the short term, but what you learn will lead to an exciting vision for the future.
