Shelley von Strunckel, one of the world’s top astrologers, writes a weekly forecast for Friday
ARIES MAR 20 – APR 18
Just when you thought persistent problems couldn’t be overcome, sudden ideas or changes in circumstances clear the way for plans to proceed. Review existing arrangements. This will prove surprisingly informative and, better yet, discussions lead to exciting new ideas involving others.
TAURUS APR 19 – MAY 19
The past weeks’ events have been as exciting as unsettling. Now that you’re discussing plans, you’ll also need to rethink long-standing arrangements. Unsettling as this seems, with your ruler Venus, Mercury and, on the 22nd, the Sun all moving to accent a new approach, the more options your explore now, the better the outcome.
GEMINI MAY 20 – JUN 19
After an exciting, but chaotic, couple of weeks the pace slows, enough you’re able to consider where things stand now and future plans. You soon discover these need to be rethought. However, with so much still in transition, your focus should be discussion, not firm arrangements.
CANCER JUN 20 – JUL 21
With the Sun, charming Venus and Mercury all in Cancer, you’re at your most persuasive. Yet you’re still unsure about certain changes. What’s most important is that you discuss plans. While often others’ ideas will differ from yours, the resulting conversations will clarify your thinking.
LEO JUL 22 – AUG 21
Recent discussions were complex and, on occasion, triggered confrontations. While these tensions won’t vanish, at least you can now talk things over without those conversations turning into dramas. Bear in mind, however, that nothing has settled, so regard plans you arrange as tentative.
VIRGO AUG 22 – SEP 21
While you might have a right to blame recent dramas on others’ poor planning, nobody could have anticipated recent twists and turns in events. So focus on teamwork and maintaining crucial alliances. Everybody will benefit from the resulting analysis and exchange of ideas.
LIBRA SEP 22 – OCT 21
In the past week, you faced complex situations where you had to deal with others’ differences. Things are calmer now. Still, certain individuals are determined to have things their way. This isn’t your problem. Back off, or you’ll end up playing the role of peacemaker.
SCORPIO OCT 22 – NOV 20
Having struggled to achieve an accord in already tense arrangements, when they start coming undone you won’t be pleased. Yet with so much in transition, such changes are inevitable. Regard what’s arranged as one of a series of plans, and when you need to rethink things, it’s just a new step towards something lasting.
SAGITTARIUS NOV 21 – DEC 20
When the remarkable events triggered by late June’s powerful link between your ruler Jupiter and Pluto took place, you set about turning them into lasting plans. However, you’re still wrestling with unexpected developments. Deal with these once, in depth, and the plans will endure.
CAPRICORN DEC 21 – JAN 19
For you as a thorough Capricorn, complex situations are no problem. However, some issues are strangely upsetting. These involve emotional matters and are being triggered by the Full Moon in your sign. Although this isn’t until the 19th, the time has come to face, and discuss, these matters in depth.
AQUARIUS JAN 20 – FEB 18
The obstacles you’re facing are preventing you from making arrangements you’d later regret. Deep down you sense the truth of this. It’s just that you’re determined to see certain plans through. Both circumstances and your life have changed, so the vision you had for the future must change, too.
PISCES FEB 19 – MAR 19
Eliminating your idealistic Piscean nature isn’t possible. Instead, for now, you’re urged to adopt an uncharacteristically cynical perspective. That way, during this complex period, you won’t be shocked when some individuals are uncooperative. Accept it so you can take the upper hand.
