ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18

Af­ter a cou­ple of weeks of ex­cit­ing and of­ten un­ex­pected ideas and of­fers, you’re about to hit re­al­ity with a thud. That may sound neg­a­tive but, rather, it’s just that you’ve reached the point at which you’re fac­ing rather dull but also vi­tal de­tails. While you’d rather es­cape these, you’re urged to tackle them swiftly, mostly be­cause they of­fer you valu­able and, of­ten, un­ex­pected in­sights.

TAURUS APRIL 19 – MAY 19

The time has come to do your sums. This doesn’t just ap­ply to finances, although you’ll need to fo­cus on the wise use of your ideas and even your time. There’s no prob­lem but, rather, with so much that’s so ex­cit­ing go­ing on, you could eas­ily over-com­mit. But, then, you’re ex­plor­ing your op­tions, so ex­pect to learn from mis­takes as much as from what works.

GEMINI MAY 20 – JUNE 20

The re­cent Gemini New Moon has ush­ered in in­trigu­ing ideas and given you good rea­son to ques­tion in­creas­ingly bur­den­some ar­range­ments. Tempt­ing as it is to dis­cuss these at length, you’re bet­ter off plung­ing in, then al­low­ing ex­pe­ri­ence it­self to re­veal what you need to learn and, equally, what needs to be done. Based on that, you can re­think and then, in time, fi­nalise plans.

CAN­CER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

Af­ter an of­ten-chal­leng­ing and fre­quently in­for­ma­tive pe­riod, you’re ready to turn the ideas you’ve been dis­cussing into ac­tion. Mars’s move into Can­cer, on June 4 for a six-week stay, kick-starts this cy­cle. First, con­sider ev­ery op­tion and, equally, think what you don’t want to change. This pre­pares you to move swiftly when you’re jug­gling planned changes with thrilling but un­ex­pected of­fers.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 21

Although you some­times com­plain oth­ers sim­ply ex­pect you to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for de­ci­sions and plans, you won’t be thrilled about cer­tain mat­ters be­ing taken out of your hands. Ac­tu­ally, this is best as it forces you to con­sider op­tions you’d pre­vi­ously dis­missed or of which you were un­aware. For now, ex­plore, but learn as much as pos­si­ble since you’ll soon be­gin ex­plor­ing fur­ther.

VIRGO AU­GUST 22 – SEPTEM­BER 21

You like the idea of change, but the va­ri­ety com­ing your way is too fast-paced and seems wor­ry­ingly dis­rup­tive. While that’s true, mat­ters of this na­ture must move swiftly and, equally, de­mand sear­ingly frank dis­cus­sion. Although ini­tially you’ll find you’re anx­ious, you’ll soon re­alise how much eas­ier it is to com­mit to, and make, plans when ev­ery­thing is so clear and above board.

LIBRA SEPTEM­BER 22 – OC­TO­BER 22

Ex­cit­ing as the events trig­gered by re­cent plan­e­tary ac­tiv­ity may have been, the re­sult­ing changes have been so dis­rup­tive, you’re won­der­ing if it was all worth­while. The sooner you delve into these mat­ters, the more swiftly you’ll recog­nise that what­ever chaos you’re fac­ing will be tem­po­rary and will be more than com­pen­sated by im­prove­ments in your own life and in cer­tain re­la­tion­ships.

SCORPIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

Hav­ing man­aged to keep cer­tain com­plex is­sues un­der wraps, even in the midst of all the re­cent ex­cite­ment, you feel you can relax. But judg­ing by pow­er­ful as­pects by both Venus and com­mu­ni­ca­tion planet Mer­cury to your ruler Pluto, you’d be bet­ter off dis­cussing cer­tain prob­lems frankly. Once you’re talk­ing them over, you’ll re­alise that, all along, there was noth­ing to worry about.

SAGITTARIUS NOVEM­BER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

Thrilling as progress in both ex­ist­ing and new plans and ideas may be, you’re con­cerned about cer­tain long-term ar­range­ments. They’re wor­ry­ingly un­sta­ble, and not re­spond­ing to your ef­forts to re­vive them. That’s prob­a­bly be­cause they’re com­ing to a nat­u­ral con­clu­sion. Let them go. It will end those con­cerns and, bet­ter yet, free you to con­cen­trate on more promis­ing de­vel­op­ments.

CAPRICORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 18

No­body is bet­ter at turn­ing a good idea into a last­ing plan, which is ex­actly what you’ll be do­ing now, af­ter the past weeks’ rather thrilling events and the ac­com­pa­ny­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties. While, ob­vi­ously, your ob­jec­tive is to get these or­gan­ised, don’t do too much or be too thor­ough. Things are still tak­ing shape but, equally, you’re still con­sid­er­ing your op­tions, some of which have yet to ap­pear.

AQUARIUS JAN­UARY 19 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

Hav­ing just been through a cy­cle that was as ex­cit­ing as it’s been dis­rup­tive, you need a break. You’ll get it, but not right away. The events that both shook up ex­ist­ing ar­range­ments and ush­ered in new ideas may have slowed their pace but haven’t stopped, and won’t un­til mid-June. Un­til then, con­tinue to ex­plore your op­tions and, even more, what might need to go.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

Cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als are moan­ing about changes dis­rupt­ing their lives, work or re­la­tion­ships. The fact is, the events trig­gered by this ex­cit­ing but un­set­tling cy­cle are in­flu­enc­ing ev­ery sin­gle per­son in some way, but not every­body is com­plain­ing. That should tell you how to deal with those who think their suf­fer­ing is unique, and that’s to be sym­pa­thetic, but then treat them like every­body else.
