ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18

For weeks there’s been dis­cus­sion of ma­jor al­ter­ations in your per­sonal life, ac­tiv­i­ties and in al­liances at home and out in the world. While you’ve un­der­taken some, with the cir­cum­stances in ques­tion chang­ing, plans won’t last long. Ac­tu­ally, this is best, be­cause with your ruler Mars in Aries, you’re re­think­ing both ex­ist­ing and fu­ture plans. For now, the em­pha­sis is on ex­plo­ration.

TAU­RUS APRIL 19 – MAY 19

Ac­knowl­edg­ing that cru­cial de­ci­sions aren’t in your hands hasn’t been easy. Still, look­ing back, you’re thank­ful you didn’t bat­tle changes. Af­ter hav­ing strug­gled with them, you’re shed­ding bur­den­some ar­range­ments. This frees you to ex­plore the in­trigu­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and in­di­vid­u­als, many of which are en­rich­ing your life. Add Sun­day’s eclipse and that process of dis­cov­ery will con­tinue.

GEM­INI MAY 20 – JUNE 20

Ev­ery sign is in­flu­enced by Sun­day’s eclipse. It ac­cents the struc­ture of your life, so will kick-start changes you’ve re­garded as in­trigu­ing pos­si­bil­i­ties but noth­ing more. How­ever, with the foun­da­tion on which plans are be­ing made shift­ing, even sim­ple ar­range­ments are bound to go through sev­eral ver­sions. Know­ing that, for now, fo­cus on ex­plo­ration. Fi­nal de­ci­sions can, and should, wait.

CAN­CER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

While po­ten­tial changes have been dis­cussed for ages, de­ci­sions seem closer now. They are, but there will be sev­eral twists and turns be­fore any­thing can be set­tled. Ini­tially this is frus­trat­ing. How­ever, within days, in­trigu­ing new ideas will make you re­lieved you kept your op­tions open. Bet­ter yet, those in­sights will en­sure you’re happy with the de­ci­sions, that, fi­nally, you make.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 21

Be­ing an en­er­getic fire sign, you are, by na­ture, de­ci­sive. Yet be­tween the events trig­gered by Sun­day’s eclipse and sit­u­a­tions that are up to oth­ers, you’ve no choice but to go with the flow. Ac­tu­ally, this is best, as it forces you to ac­cept changes you’d have bat­tled and to ven­ture into new ter­ri­tory. What you dis­cover and who you meet could, quite lit­er­ally, trans­form your life.

VIRGO AU­GUST 22 – SEPTEM­BER 21

Usu­ally you’ve pow­er­ful in­stincts about what, suits you and what would be a mis­take. But with the world around you and your pri­or­i­ties shift­ing, you’re un­cer­tain. That’s for­tu­nate, be­cause things will re­main un­set­tled un­til mid-March’s Full Moon, when sud­den changes bring elec­tri­fy­ing clar­ity, pos­si­bly overnight. Un­til then, ex­plore ev­ery­thing. You’ll be amazed how much you learn.

LI­BRA SEPTEM­BER 22 – OC­TO­BER 22

Usu­ally, plan­ning ahead is wise. But with Fe­bru­ary’s two eclipses trig­ger­ing shake-ups, en­sure any ar­range­ments are flex­i­ble. Not only does this en­able you to ad­just to un­ex­pected events as they arise, this en­cour­ages you to con­sider op­tions that, oth­er­wise, wouldn’t have crossed your mind. The more you ex­plore, the bet­ter equipped you’ll be to make wise de­ci­sions a few weeks from now.

SCOR­PIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

‘Go­ing with the flow’ may be out of char­ac­ter for you. How­ever, it’s the best ap­proach to this un­set­tling but worth­while pe­riod. Seem­ingly un­fair changes aren’t just re­ar­rang­ing your life, they’re al­ter­ing your per­spec­tive. Bet­ter yet, they’re clear­ing the way for won­der­ful de­vel­op­ments. If you can’t ac­cept th­ese, at least try not to bat­tle them. By mid-March, you’ll fully recog­nise their promise.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS NOVEM­BER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

Or­di­nar­ily, your abil­ity to think and move swiftly is an as­set. But judg­ing by the se­ries of as­pects in­volv­ing Mars, your ruler Jupiter and Uranus, be­tween now and the end of the week, events will be dra­matic, if not life-chang­ing. Con­sider ev­ery op­tion, es­pe­cially those that seem un­re­al­is­tic, but side­step de­ci­sions un­til mid-March. By then, both cir­cum­stances and your pri­or­i­ties will be clearer.

CAPRI­CORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 18

As a Capri­corn, you plan care­fully. But oth­ers don’t. That’s noth­ing new. Yet now those you’re deal­ing with are un­re­li­able. Add eclipses, in mid-Fe­bru­ary and this Sun­day, and the foun­da­tion on which plans are based is shift­ing. For­get about keep­ing up with th­ese. In­stead, fo­cus on de­clut­ter­ing your life. The re­sult­ing clar­ity will be handy when, from 10 March, things fi­nally come to­gether.

AQUAR­IUS JAN­UARY 19 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

Dur­ing this ul­ti­mately worth­while but bizarrely dis­rup­tive week, try to view events, even those that are re­shap­ing your life, as a form of theatre. That shifts your per­spec­tive, which in turn en­ables you to wait and watch, with­out feel­ing you must take ac­tion. This cy­cle cli­maxes with for­tu­nate Jupiter’s life-chang­ing link to your ruler Uranus on 3 March. Af­ter that, you’ll know what’s best.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

Although the ac­tual Pisces-eclipsed New Moon is on Sun­day, you’ve un­doubt­edly been aware of changes, in the world around you and, as much, in your life. For ages you’ve in­tended to re­think or, per­haps, elim­i­nate cer­tain ar­range­ments or al­liances. Now, as events do it for you, new and bet­ter op­tions arise. Fo­cus on ex­plo­ration. Each day will of­fer some­thing won­der­ful to dis­cover.
