Shelley von Strunckel, one of the world’s top astrologers, writes a weekly forecast for Friday
Your stars for the week ahead.
ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18
As informative as discussions and your investigation of options has been, you’re eager to turn the ideas you’ve been exploring into action. Sunday’s move by your ruler Mars to accent the structure of your life is about exactly that. Take those first steps but, because things are moving swiftly, you’re urged to ensure arrangements are flexible enough you can rethink them, probably several times.
April 19 – May 19 Usually, planning ahead is wise. But with your ruler Venus having formed a series of powerful aspects, last week, and moving into Taurus on Tuesday, life’s about change. While, ordinarily, that might be worrying, you’re already confident even unsettling events are breaking up restrictive arrangements and leading to something exciting. Still, if in doubt, say yes now and ask questions later.
GEMINI MAY 20 – JUNE 20
Late May’s Gemini New Moon may have brought powerful insights. However, the arrival of your ruling planet, Mercury, into your sign, on Tuesday, enables you to exchange persistent questions for a fresh, and timely, perspective on both existing arrangements and future ventures. If others demand details, explain you’re still considering your options. For now, flexibility is your priority.
CANCER JUNE 21 – JULY 21
Since late April, the dynamic Mars has been positioned in the most reflective portion of your chart. This prompted you to face, and deal with, a range of tricky situations, from doubts to complex obligations. However, Sunday’s move by Mars into Cancer boosts your spirits, so you’ll be in the mood, and ideally positioned, to tackle numerous issues you’ve been delving into.
LEO JULY 22 – AUGUST 21
Everybody dreams of thrilling opportunities. While that’s exactly what’s coming your way, either they’re puzzling or you’re short of crucial facts. This prompts you to ask some serious questions. Not only will you be glad you did, you’ll realise plans weren’t adequately thought through. Things will come together, but probably not until your ruler the Sun encounters the practical Saturn, on the 15th.
VIRGO AUGUST 22 – SEPTEMBER 21
For weeks, you’ve been juggling all sorts of ideas but been unable to come up with lasting plans. However, between powerful and positive planetary activity and, as of Tuesday, your ruler Mercury accenting the decision-making process, things start falling into place. While some of those arrangements will be very different from anything you’d imagined, they’ll also turn out to be much better.
LIBRA SEPTEMBER 22 – OCTOBER 22
Your initial reaction to sudden changes could be to try to slow their pace. That’s not only impossible, that momentum is forcing those who’ve battled these to give in. Things may seem worryingly out of control, but it’s because everybody’s trying to make up for lost time. Even seemingly dramatic events have been discussed for ages. Be patient. Within days it’ll all make sense.
SCORPIO OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21
Unsettling as watching familiar elements of your life come undone may be, these changes are nothing new. Between delays and your own efforts to sideline them, nothing’s happened. However, with the actual circumstances shifting, these aren’t just inevitable, they’re in your best interests. You’ve already glimpsed what’s next, and it’s both thrilling and hopeful.
SAGITTARIUS NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 20
Although you’re highly inquisitive, once you’ve explored ideas, you’ll move on to whatever’s next and dislike covering old ground. Yet that’s exactly what you’ll be doing, mostly so you can either rethink or say farewell to certain once-worthwhile arrangements. This isn’t just about practical matters. Expect events and, especially, your feelings to climax by next Friday’s Sagittarius Full Moon.
CAPRICORN DECEMBER 21 – JANUARY 18
Over the past weeks you’ve been watching onceprized elements of your life change dramatically, if not come undone. While, mostly, this is no surprise, some of what’s next could seem a shock if not a dramatic loss. Yet, deep down, you’ve known these arrangements were reaching their end. Say a proper farewell, then focus on the rather thrilling new ideas or offers appearing.
AQUARIUS JANUARY 19 – FEBRUARY 17
There’s no way you’ll get through this dramatic week without rethinking, if not eliminating, various long-standing arrangements. This seems sudden but, in fact, you’ve been exploring various options for ages. It’s just they’ve been in a very different form. The trick is to explore everything. Once you learn more, you’ll realise how well things fit together, and will be far more receptive.
PISCES FEBRUARY 18 – MARCH 19
Usually you’re the first to spot necessary changes, point them out to others, then get things going. Yet now you’re anxious. That’s probably more about the build-up to next Friday’s emotionally intense Full Moon, which accents these and other potential changes. Delve into your doubts now, and you’ll not only clear them up, you’ll improve on various arrangements as well.
