ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18

Since early March, you’ve faced con­fu­sion and a range of ob­sta­cles, all of which have been frus­trat­ing and slowed your pace. Fi­nally cir­cum­stances per­mit frank con­ver­sa­tions about th­ese is­sues and, even bet­ter, Tues­day’s Aries New Moon leads to break­throughs. How­ever, th­ese so­lu­tions aren’t in­stant, which means you’ll be do­ing lots of think­ing, dis­cussing and ex­plor­ing, well into next week.

TAURUS APRIL 19 – MAY 19

You wish you could make, and stick with, a sin­gle plan. But with your ruler Venus ret­ro­grade, trig­ger­ing anal­y­sis of past ar­range­ments and ques­tions about on­go­ing plans, is­sues you re­garded as mi­nor could prove un­ex­pect­edly re­veal­ing. Delve into th­ese. The in­sights will draw your at­ten­tion to ideas you’ve pre­vi­ously dis­missed as be­ing bor­ing or not your thing. Now they might be per­fect.

GEMINI MAY 20 – JUNE 20

When faced with dull peo­ple or te­dious sit­u­a­tions, you long for some­body to sweep in and re­or­gan­ise ev­ery­thing. How­ever, that’s hap­pen­ing and you’re not thrilled with the re­sults. Don’t com­plain. In­stead work with the in­di­vid­u­als in ques­tion, even those whose views seem to dif­fer from yours. Take a chance and dis­cuss your con­cerns frankly. You’ll be sur­prised how help­ful they are.

CAN­CER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

Say­ing farewell to long-stand­ing plans, al­liances or even dreams isn’t easy. Yet as each day of this dy­namic but unset­tling week un­folds, you’ll re­alise what once seemed per­fect won’t re­ally work. Bet­ter yet, you’ll soon spot far more promis­ing ar­range­ments, many of which are the re­sult of the cur­rent cy­cle of unset­tling changes. Ex­plore ev­ery­thing. What seems least likely could turn out best.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 21

You’re well aware it’s time to dis­en­tan­gle your­self from cer­tain past ar­range­ments. Equally, you’re ea­ger to ex­plore what’s in store. With your ruler the Sun and Tues­day’s New Moon both ac­cent­ing ways you can broaden your hori­zons, your timing is su­perb. While putting those ideas into ac­tion could take longer than you an­tic­i­pate, the re­sult­ing in­sights could make you re­lieved you were de­layed.

VIRGO AU­GUST 22 – SEPTEM­BER 21

Hav­ing worked out the de­tails of plans with great care, sud­den events mean chang­ing ev­ery­thing, of­ten overnight. Ob­vi­ously, this is an­noy­ing. How­ever, you soon re­alise what’s go­ing is be­ing re­placed by some­thing far bet­ter and, of­ten, which you’d never have thought of your­self. So go with the flow. And ex­plore. In time the fu­ture will be clear but, for now, life’s about dis­cov­ery.

LIBRA SEPTEM­BER 22 – OC­TO­BER 22

Tempt­ing as it is to help oth­ers un­tan­gle con­fu­sion re­gard­ing their life, loves or work, you’d soon re­gret even try­ing. With the ac­tual sit­u­a­tions in ques­tion chang­ing, some rad­i­cally, it’s about liv­ing through and learn­ing from events. To a cer­tain ex­tent, it’s the same for you. Anal­y­sis of per­plex­ing is­sues will yield lit­tle. In­stead ob­serve from the side­lines. You’ll be as­ton­ished how much you learn.

SCORPIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

You’ve a knack for spot­ting po­ten­tially trou­ble­some sit­u­a­tions and in­di­vid­u­als who’re best avoided. But now, bizarrely, those you’d as­sumed would be a night­mare aren’t just won­der­ful, you’re dis­cov­er­ing they’re com­pletely dif­fer­ent from what you’d ex­pected. Re­mem­ber this when you’re about to refuse seem­ingly wor­ry­ing of­fers. You’ll soon re­alise that they, too, are ex­actly what’s needed.

SAGITTARIUS NOVEM­BER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

The ob­vi­ous way to deal with ob­sta­cles, yours or those caus­ing prob­lems for oth­ers, is to side­step them. How­ever, judg­ing by the se­ries of chal­leng­ing as­pects to your ruler Jupiter, th­ese are about what you can learn, not mak­ing swift progress. So side­line fu­ture plan­ning and, in­stead, fo­cus on ex­plor­ing ev­ery­thing you can do or learn, and meet­ing ev­ery­body you can. You won’t re­gret it.

CAPRICORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 18

This week’s plan­e­tary setup brings the phrase ‘care­fully crafted’ to mind. You’re al­ways painstak­ing. But now, life’s about on­go­ing dis­cus­sion and lots of ques­tion­ing. In fact, what you dis­cover could mean re­think­ing even long-stand­ing plans. This process of ex­plo­ration leads to op­tions you’d never have con­ceived pos­si­ble. While it’ll de­mand pa­tience, you’ll soon learn why things had to wait.

AQUARIUS JAN­UARY 19 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

Al­most ev­ery­body is in­trigued by, and ea­ger to learn about, new ideas or events. But cer­tain peo­ple have no in­ter­est in any­thing new or un­fa­mil­iar. Your chal­lenge is to over­come this, and se­duce them into ex­plor­ing re­cent ex­cit­ing de­vel­op­ments. While you’ll achieve this, iron­i­cally, what you learn about the in­di­vid­u­als in ques­tion could sub­stan­tially al­ter your re­la­tion­ship with them.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

Most Pis­ceans are adept at get­ting oth­ers to do what they want. The trick is to avoid be­ing de­mand­ing but, in­stead, sim­ply be charm­ing. Now, how­ever, you must take a stand. It’s about stak­ing a claim or, per­haps, mak­ing it clear who’s boss in one par­tic­u­lar sit­u­a­tion. This seems out of char­ac­ter, but if you aren’t al­ready aware why that’s im­por­tant, you soon will be.
