Friday - - Horoscopes -

ARIES MAR 20 – APR 18

Promis­ing as this week’s ideas are, things are un­likely to pro­ceed as an­tic­i­pated. Re­gard plans as ten­ta­tive. This flex­i­bil­ity will be­come cru­cial in early Au­gust, when your ruler Mars’ move into the most ex­pan­sive an­gle of your chart in­di­cates you’ll be broad­en­ing your hori­zons.

TAURUS APR 19 – MAY 19

For weeks you’ve known de­ci­sions were loom­ing. But you’ve been short of op­tions. Now that both your ruler Venus and Mer­cury have moved to ac­cent these mat­ters, it’s time to talk things over. Wait un­til early Au­gust to make de­ci­sions, when ideas or op­tions far be­yond any­thing you’d imag­ine pos­si­ble ap­pear from nowhere.

GEMINI MAY 20 – JUN 19

Be­cause Tues­day’s Full Moon height­ens anx­i­eties about your re­sources, from time to money, you’re seek­ing swift so­lu­tions. Be bold. Ask those who you re­spect for ad­vice and if they make sense, fol­low them through. Each new plan will bring valu­able in­sights and progress.

CAN­CER JUN 20 – JUL 21

Of­ten when those clos­est, at home or at work, are wor­ried, you’ll try to dis­tract them. But not only are the is­sues caus­ing them con­cern in­escapable, they can be eas­ily re­solved. En­cour­age dis­cus­sion. This also gives you an op­por­tu­nity to raise and re­solve other per­sis­tent con­flicts.

LEO JUL 22 – AUG 21

Think back over the un­ex­pected but ul­ti­mately amaz­ing de­vel­op­ments of the past few weeks and you’ll re­alise why there’s no need for con­cern about the twists and turns you’re cur­rently fac­ing. Em­brace all changes en­thu­si­as­ti­cally – they’ll prove to be worth­while.

VIRGO AUG 22 – SEP 21

Although cer­tain mat­ters seem clear-cut, oth­ers re­main ei­ther puz­zling or you’re held back by the need to be diplo­matic. Disen­tan­gle your­self from re­stric­tive past al­liances. This en­sures you’re free to move swiftly when, in a month’s time, you’ll be ex­plor­ing and mak­ing life-chang­ing plans.

LIBRA SEP 22 – OCT 21

You’ll im­ply you’re leav­ing de­ci­sions up to oth­ers while, in the back­ground, you’re en­cour­ag­ing them to fo­cus on cer­tain plans. But this Libra diplo­macy could boomerang on you. Leave things to oth­ers and fo­cus on un­tan­gling con­fu­sion in close al­liances. Act swiftly or you’ll re­gret it.

SCORPIO OCT 22 – NOV 20

When you make plans, you think them through, so rarely need to al­ter a thing. But even at your can­ni­est, you couldn’t have an­tic­i­pated the cur­rent dra­matic changes. How­ever, each is en­cour­ag­ing you to break away from fa­mil­iar but re­stric­tive habits. Any wor­ries about what’s next will be swiftly re­lieved by var­i­ous ex­cit­ing events.

SAGITTARIUS NOV 21 – DEC 20

It’s all about de­tails. Yes, this means tack­ling dull prac­ti­cal mat­ters. The irony is, once you get in­volved with these, you’ll re­alise dilem­mas are ac­tu­ally fas­ci­nat­ing, and the so­lu­tions you seek are far more eas­ily achieved than you’d imag­ined. Ask ques­tions. What you learn could be use­ful.

CAPRICORN DEC 21 – JAN 19

Be­cause Tues­day’s Capricorn Full Moon height­ens your emo­tions, you could bat­tle even nec­es­sary changes. Hap­pily, there’s time to talk. Ask ques­tions and lis­ten care­fully to oth­ers’ ad­vice. What you learn helps clar­ify your pri­or­i­ties. Within days, you’re un­der­tak­ing dra­matic changes.

AQUAR­IUS JAN 20 – FEB 18

Some­times ob­sta­cles are no more than that. Those you’ve been fac­ing re­cently are about ex­am­in­ing cer­tain long-stand­ing ar­range­ments. Don’t bat­tle to keep these afloat. In­stead ex­plore every­thing new – what seems least likely now could work out bril­liantly, and within weeks.

PISCES FEB 19 – MAR 19

Watch­ing plans you’ve worked hard to make hap­pen come un­done is dis­heart­en­ing, but you’ll soon re­alise these were but a first step to some­thing new. Take it slowly. This gives you time to ac­quaint your­self with the fas­ci­nat­ing ideas and peo­ple you’ll be en­coun­ter­ing soon.
