ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18

Al­though the pe­riod since late De­cem­ber will of­ten have been per­plex­ing, you’ve tack­led and dealt with an amaz­ing range of is­sues, from tricky obli­ga­tions to re­or­gan­is­ing parts of your life that badly needed at­ten­tion. This will con­tinue. Dull as it seems, what you’re learn­ing will serve you well from the 28th, when your ruler Mars’s move into Aries kick-starts a cy­cle of fast ac­tion and growth.

TAURUS APRIL 19 – MAY 19

When a se­ries of tricky is­sues arose in early Jan­uary, you were re­lieved rather than sur­prised as you knew they’d need at­ten­tion even­tu­ally. While you’ve dealt with most, sev­eral more com­plex ones re­main. For­get about han­dling these solo. In fact, cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als are ea­gerly wait­ing for you to ask them to lend a hand. Once you do so, it will be­come clear they’re far bet­ter in­formed than you.

GEMINI MAY 20 – JUNE 20

The con­fu­sion you’re clear­ing up as the week be­gins may seem unim­por­tant. But each is­sue will ei­ther prove in­for­ma­tive or ex­pose oth­ers, and many will be far more se­ri­ous than you re­alised. Tackle these im­me­di­ately and you’ll pre­vent fur­ther com­pli­ca­tions. Bet­ter yet, you’ll dis­cover how re­or­gan­is­ing ar­range­ments will en­able you to avoid sim­i­lar prob­lems in the fu­ture.

CAN­CER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

Al­though this week’s de­ci­sions in­volve el­e­ments of your life, they’re not up to you. Ac­knowl­edge that, back off and al­low those whose re­spon­si­bil­ity it is to deal with these, and fo­cus on your own tasks, some you’ve been putting off. This isn’t just wise, when the events trig­gered by Fe­bru­ary’s two eclipses change ev­ery­thing, you’ll be re­lieved you wasted no time on per­fect­ing those ar­range­ments.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 21

As a quick think­ing and fast mov­ing fire sign, you get a lot done in a short time. How­ever, know­ing the pow­er­ful Leo-eclipsed Full Moon in mid-Fe­bru­ary is likely to trig­ger changes in both ex­ist­ing and fu­ture ar­range­ments, the less you com­mit to now, the bet­ter. Ac­tu­ally, your time’s best spent rid­ding your life of plans, projects and, pos­si­bly, pas­sions that are go­ing nowhere.

VIRGO AU­GUST 22 – SEPTEM­BER 21

Ini­tially, when you ei­ther sidestepped tricky mat­ters or told oth­ers only what they ab­so­lutely had to know, your aim was to avoid up­set or con­fu­sion. But since then, changes make it es­sen­tial you tell ev­ery­body ev­ery­thing. Aim to do this be­fore Sun­day the 29th, when your ruler Mer­cury meets the un­com­pro­mis­ingly hon­est Pluto, and these will be re­vealed any­way, but not as you in­tended.

LIBRA SEPTEM­BER 22 – OC­TO­BER 22

Waste no time try­ing to fig­ure out if you could have avoided the is­sues you’ve been fac­ing these week. Most are about life’s prac­ti­cal­i­ties hav­ing be­come mixed up. While un­do­ing some of this con­fu­sion will be easy, a few sit­u­a­tions will re­quire se­ri­ous ef­fort. In­ter­est­ingly, what you learn in the process will prove so in­for­ma­tive that, ul­ti­mately, you’ll be de­lighted those is­sues arose.

SCORPIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

Over the com­ing weeks, you and those clos­est to you at home or at work, will be mak­ing piv­otal de­ci­sions. And, by this week’s close, you’ll be dis­cussing mat­ters in far greater depth than you or they had an­tic­i­pated. Any facts are best re­vealed now, while you can do so with­out drama, rather than later, when it will be a far more com­plex sit­u­a­tion – so come clean, the sooner, the bet­ter.

SAGITTARIUS NOVEM­BER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

Look back on the past month and you’ll re­alise that while it seemed you were deal­ing with end­less dull do­mes­tic, fam­ily or work is­sues, you’ve ac­tu­ally achieved a lot. You’ve not only put to rest sev­eral sit­u­a­tions as chal­leng­ing as they were per­sis­tent, but what you’ve learnt in the process has led to a se­ri­ous re­think of other long-stand­ing ar­range­ments, and at just the right time.

CAPRICORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 18

It’s bet­ter to be di­rect in ex­press­ing your views, and as forth­right as pos­si­ble about po­ten­tially un­set­tling ques­tions. Changes in el­e­ments of your do­mes­tic or pro­fes­sional set-up, com­bined with your shift­ing pri­or­i­ties will need to be dis­cussed. While you may think this is straight­for­ward, the more op­tions you ex­plore, the more you’ll re­alise you need to talk things over frankly with oth­ers.

AQUARIUS JAN­UARY 19 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

While the Aquarius New Moon on Satur­day the 28th ush­ers in a new cy­cle, you could eas­ily mis­take sud­den changes as a nui­sance, not part of that fresh start. Know­ing that, ex­plore ab­so­lutely ev­ery idea or of­fer that comes your way, how­ever bizarre or un­in­ter­est­ing it seems. And, equally, feel free to show in­ter­est with­out mak­ing any com­mit­ments. It’s your turn to come first.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

What­ever you do, some­body will com­plain. Ac­knowl­edge that, and you’ll worry less about the re­ac­tion of cer­tain self­ish in­di­vid­u­als and fo­cus on what’s in your best in­ter­ests. The irony is, hav­ing made that de­ci­sion, you could dis­cover you need to give se­ri­ous thought to ex­actly what it means. In­vest time in that re­view and there’ll be no need to de­bate up­com­ing plans.
