Friday - - Horoscopes -

ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18

Gen­er­ally, your ca­pac­ity to over­come ob­sta­cles is a virtue. How­ever, those you’re cur­rently fac­ing are prompt­ing a re­view of even seem­ingly solid ar­range­ments. This won’t just be in­for­ma­tive, it will rouse un­ex­pected feel­ings. Bet­ter yet, the ques­tions these raise are pre­par­ing you for the thrilling if en­tirely un­ex­pected events trig­gered by the Sun’s en­counter with Uranus on the 14th.

TAURUS APRIL 19 – MAY 19

Plan­ning ahead may be a virtue. But with the com­mu­ni­ca­tion planet, Mer­cury, po­si­tioned in Taurus and go­ing ret­ro­grade on Sun­day, you’re urged to fac­tor in the un­ex­pected. This could in­volve ev­ery­thing from changes in cir­cum­stances to a shift in your pri­or­i­ties. While, some­times, these will be dis­rup­tive, just as of­ten you’ll be re­lieved or de­lighted that you’ve a chance to re­think.

GEMINI MAY 20 – JUNE 20

Your motto for this, and the com­ing weeks, is ‘wait and watch’. You’re usu­ally the first to spot and pick up on in­trigu­ing ideas and trends, how­ever, with your ruler Mer­cury ret­ro­grade, from Sun­day, in the most strate­gic part of your chart, life’s about re­flec­tion. What you learn about sit­u­a­tions, oth­ers and, most im­por­tantly, your­self will trans­form your think­ing, if not your life.

CAN­CER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

For weeks changes in el­e­ments of your do­mes­tic or work­ing life have been in the air. These are as thrilling as they are un­set­tling, so when Tuesday’s Full Moon brings things to­gether, you’re both ex­cited and anx­ious. Re­as­sur­ing as solid plans would be, with so much in flux, en­sure any ar­range­ments are flex­i­ble enough to ride out the nu­mer­ous twists and turns yet to come.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 21

You thrive on a rou­tine but, on oc­ca­sion, you love to ex­plore new op­tions. That’s ex­actly what you’ve been do­ing over the past weeks and now, as events come to­gether, those ad­ven­tures could be tun­ing into proper changes. Al­though you’re un­cer­tain ini­tially, by next Fri­day’s en­counter be­tween your ruler the Sun and Uranus, you ready for a bit of a revo­lu­tion.

VIRGO AU­GUST 22 – SEPTEM­BER 21

While your ruler Mer­cury’s ret­ro­grade cy­cle is known to trig­ger er­rors at times, the one start­ing on Sun­day is about broad­en­ing your hori­zons in ex­pected ways. Know­ing that, re­gard un­ex­pected events and odd of­fers as a chance to learn or meet new peo­ple. While the ben­e­fits won’t be im­me­di­ately clear, when you look back, you’ll re­alise how many won­der­ful changes this brought.

LIBRA SEPTEM­BER 22 – OC­TO­BER 22

By the time Tuesday’s Libra Full Moon takes place, you’ll un­doubt­edly have thought through and dis­cussed var­i­ous is­sues that you were hop­ing would sim­ply van­ish. Now that you’ve put them to rest, tackle the more com­plex prob­lems in­volv­ing changes as un­set­tling as they could be ex­cit­ing. Speak frankly. The more boldly you ex­press your views, the more re­ward­ing the talks will be.

SCORPIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

Some­times ob­sta­cles are no more than that. How­ever, judg­ing by the re­cent clash be­tween the Sun and your ruler Pluto, the more will­ing you are to delve into the back­ground of these, what­ever their size, the bet­ter you’ll un­der­stand cer­tain per­sis­tent is­sues. Un­com­fort­able as these in­sights may be ini­tially, once their ori­gin is clear, you’ll be able to tackle, and re­solve most, all at once.

SAGITTARIUS NOVEM­BER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

You’ve a knack for rid­ing out un­set­tling de­vel­op­ments, mostly be­cause you’re fas­ci­nated where the re­sult­ing changes will take you. How­ever, with Tuesday’s Full Moon height­en­ing your feel­ings and ev­ery­body else’s, you could over-re­act. In­stead talk things over, per­haps with an un­ac­cus­tomed depth. At a min­i­mum, it will be in­for­ma­tive, but in some cases, it could trans­form trou­bled re­la­tion­ships.

CAPRICORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 18

Un­der­stand­ably, you’ve been hop­ing you could side­step com­plex but rel­a­tively unim­por­tant is­sues un­til life’s calmer. What you don’t re­alise is these are core to those dilem­mas you re­gard as more press­ing. That be­ing the case, talk over what­ever arises or the con­cerns oth­ers have, know­ing that, as one thing leads to an­other, you’ll tackle and re­solve those is­sues that are so on your mind.

AQUARIUS JAN­UARY 19 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

It’s not so much that you’ve been in­de­ci­sive, as that the ac­tual sit­u­a­tions you’re deal­ing with are chang­ing, and ev­ery cou­ple of days. This is un­set­tling but also forc­ing you to broaden your hori­zons in prepa­ra­tion for next Fri­day’s en­counter be­tween the Sun and your ruler Uranus, one of the year’s turn­ing points, per­son­ally, in terms of here and now plans and, even more, your vi­sion for the fu­ture.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

On oc­ca­sion you get so in­volved in oth­ers’ dra­mas that you for­get about your own needs and pri­or­i­ties un­til it’s too late. Now, how­ever, you must put your­self first. While you’re aware of some changes, other more pow­er­ful ones are tak­ing place in the back­ground. Al­low your­self to be dis­tracted and de­ci­sions will be out of your hands. These are cru­cial, for now and for the fu­ture.
