ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18

Ir­ri­tat­ing and, of­ten, up­set­ting as re­cent set­backs seem, they’re a bless­ing in dis­guise. They’re forc­ing you to slow your pace in the pur­suit of ex­cit­ing plans, of­fers or ideas. You’ll prob­a­bly be tempted to ig­nore dif­fi­cul­ties and pro­ceed, hop­ing things won’t get worse. In­stead, delve into these, and now. You’ll dis­cover a new, and far bet­ter, ap­proach to it all.

TAU­RUS APRIL 19 – MAY 19

If you’ve been re­view­ing el­e­ments of your way of liv­ing, work­ing or your pri­or­i­ties, that’s no sur­prise. With your ruler Venus ret­ro­grade un­til the 15th, it’s nat­u­ral you’d be ques­tion­ing even sta­ble ar­range­ments. While you’ve been aware some need a re­think, oth­ers seemed fine. In ev­ery case, take your time. You’ll be­gin con­sid­er­ing what’s go­ing but, grad­u­ally, your fo­cus shifts to what’s next.

GEMINI MAY 20 – JUNE 20

Re­cently you faced a range of changes – in ev­ery case, you knew where events were tak­ing you. How­ever, with your ruler Mer­cury ret­ro­grade from the 9th, you’re be­gin­ning a pe­riod of ques­tion­ing, ex­plo­ration and, oc­ca­sion­ally, dis­rup­tion. Iron­i­cally, the more you’re ready to say farewell to, the bet­ter pre­pared you’ll be for the com­ing weeks’ ex­cit­ing de­vel­op­ments.

CAN­CER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

For ages you’ve been talk­ing over changes in your do­mes­tic or work­ing life. You’ve made some but are still dis­cussing oth­ers, What seemed your best op­tion as re­cently as late last year has evolved, al­most be­yond recog­ni­tion. Ide­ally, you’ll keep both your think­ing and ar­range­ments flex­i­ble un­til the Full Moon, on the 11th, when feel­ings and facts come to a thrilling cli­max.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 21

There’s a dif­fer­ence be­tween things go­ing as planned, which they’re not, and there be­ing any­thing to worry about. Iron­i­cally, what seems un­wel­come, at least ini­tially, could be ex­actly what you’ll need to turn good ideas into spec­tac­u­lar ones. Know­ing that, ex­plore ab­so­lutely ev­ery­thing. As one thing leads to an­other, you’ll re­alise how ex­cit­ing those dis­rup­tive ideas or ar­range­ments could be.

VIRGO AU­GUST 22 – SEPTEM­BER 21

For you, as an earth sign, usu­ally or­gan­is­ing plans is a plea­sure and leads to prac­ti­cal results. Now, with cir­cum­stances shift­ing and ques­tions re­gard­ing your pri­or­i­ties, noth­ing’s been de­cided. Ac­tu­ally, that’s best. Be­tween this week’s change­able plan­e­tary ac­tiv­ity and your ruler Mer­cury ret­ro­grade, from Sun­day the 9th, even the sim­plest of ar­range­ments is bound to change, and change again.

LIBRA SEPTEM­BER 22 – OC­TO­BER 22

If there’s a sin­gle les­son for you this week and, in fact, for the first half of April, it’s the im­por­tance of be­ing flex­i­ble. While, un­de­ni­ably, you’re charm­ing, that ob­scures a fierce fo­cus. How­ever, with your ruler Venus ret­ro­grade you’ll be re­view­ing even seem­ingly solid el­e­ments of your life. De­ci­sions? You’ll make them, but not un­til mid-April.

SCORPIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

The clashes, on Thurs­day March 30, be­tween the usu­ally boun­ti­ful Jupiter and your ruler Pluto and, on Sun­day April 9, be­tween the Sun and Pluto, could be in­ter­preted neg­a­tively; that ob­sta­cles are in­escapable. There’s a more up­beat in­ter­pre­ta­tion; that is, what you learn deal­ing with those dif­fi­cul­ties will kick-start a thrilling new cy­cle. Think­ing that way alone will boost your spir­its.

SAGITTARIUS NOVEM­BER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

While mis­un­der­stand­ings are ir­ri­tat­ing, you also view them as an op­por­tu­nity to talk over both ar­range­ments, and oth­ers’ sug­ges­tions and is­sues. Ini­tially, not ev­ery­body will be up for such ex­pan­sive ex­changes. How­ever, with a lit­tle en­cour­age­ment, they’ll re­alise both those is­sues and more far-reach­ing ideas can be ex­plored. These talks could con­tinue un­til mid-April.

CAPRICORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 18

As a de­ter­mined Capricorn, you’re su­perb at deal­ing with per­sis­tent chal­lenges. Yet the con­fu­sion you’re fac­ing is an­other mat­ter. Both cir­cum­stances and the at­ti­tude of oth­ers is chang­ing, and rapidly. While this will be puz­zling, you’ll soon re­alise that with so much in transition, those de­ci­sions can wait. For now, the fo­cus is de­cid­ing what must go and learn­ing why cer­tain things went wrong.

AQUARIUS JAN­UARY 19 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

While you’ve a list of things you want to study or learn about, you’re of­ten dis­tracted by un­ex­pected ideas, events or peo­ple. The irony is, what seems least ap­peal­ing can also catch your at­ten­tion and, on oc­ca­sion, be­come part of your life. Yet now events are sug­gest­ing other, long-stand­ing, ar­range­ments are reach­ing their end, and you’re not happy about it. Let go. They’re done.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

Clearly, you can’t ex­actly ig­nore the ob­jec­tions of oth­ers. But dur­ing this week you can diplo­mat­i­cally side­step them. This gives you time to as­sess sit­u­a­tions from a prac­ti­cal an­gle but, as much, to sense what your in­stincts are telling you. Those feel­ings are prob­a­bly more reli­able than care­fully rea­soned de­ci­sions, which, given how un­set­tled things are, should wait any­way.
