ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18

Ob­vi­ously, those in­di­vid­u­als or ob­sta­cles pre­vent­ing you from do­ing what you in­tend, dis­cussing vi­tal is­sues or keep­ing you from mak­ing progress are in­fu­ri­at­ing. How­ever, what you learn over the next few days will be as in­for­ma­tive as it is sur­pris­ing. You’ll re­alise you need to re­think these. The sooner you be­gin, the sooner you’ll dis­cover op­tions you hadn’t con­sid­ered.

TAURUS APRIL 19 – MAY 19

In early June you be­gan a pow­er­ful cycle of ques­tion­ing, re­view and, as a re­sult of what you’ve learnt, change. While most plans have gone smoothly, a few have raised ques­tions about your ob­jec­tives. Sim­i­larly, prac­ti­cal is­sues or what you’ve learnt about cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als are slow­ing progress. This means you can re­think ideas that you’d re­garded as un­in­ter­est­ing, if not un­re­al­is­tic.

GEMINI MAY 20 – JUNE 20

Only re­cently, ev­ery­body was happy with both long-stand­ing ar­range­ments and more re­cent plans. Sud­denly, fi­nan­cial is­sues or changes in cir­cum­stances are forc­ing a to­tal re­think. This is an­noy­ing but, as you’ll soon dis­cover, timely. Not only will you spot and deal with prob­lems while they’re mi­nor, you’ll re­alise you’ve more and bet­ter op­tions than seemed pos­si­ble only weeks ago.

CAN­CER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

Af­ter weeks of de­lays, or hav­ing to put oth­ers’ needs first, sud­denly the ta­bles are turned. Noth­ing, and no­body, is pre­vent­ing you from fo­cus­ing on cer­tain of your own plans or projects. Still, take it slowly. El­e­ments of the foun­da­tion have changed, so much you must ei­ther re­think your vi­sion or plunge in, then or­gan­ise things one step, and one day, at a time.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 21

Sud­den changes in obli­ga­tions to oth­ers and plans of your own are se­ri­ously an­noy­ing. Yet, bizarrely, the re­sult­ing shake-up will ei­ther ac­quaint you with fas­ci­nat­ing peo­ple or take you into un­fa­mil­iar but in­trigu­ing ter­ri­tory. True, you’ll have to live with that dis­rup­tion for some weeks. Still, with even un­set­tling ex­pe­ri­ences adding to your life, now and in the fu­ture, you won’t mind.

VIRGO AU­GUST 22 – SEPTEM­BER 21

You of­ten com­plain that it’s sim­ply as­sumed you’ll take re­spon­si­bil­ity for or­gan­is­ing plans or even mak­ing cru­cial de­ci­sions. But the fact is, you’re usu­ally bet­ter in­formed and less in­flu­enced by emo­tions than oth­ers. Yet by mid­week, events force ev­ery­body to get in­volved. While tricky ini­tially, the re­sult­ing ex­change of ideas is in­for­ma­tive and, bet­ter yet, clears up con­sid­er­able con­fu­sion.

LIBRA SEPTEM­BER 22 – OC­TO­BER 22

There’s talk of changes in your way of living or work­ing. While you agree cer­tain ar­range­ments need a re­think, the ideas seem over­whelm­ing. How­ever, it’s soon clear these will be joint de­ci­sions, which means you’ll ben­e­fit from the in­sights of those clos­est but may also have to com­pro­mise. Chal­leng­ing as this is ini­tially, you soon re­alise how much oth­ers have to of­fer.

SCORPIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEMBER 21

Re­cently you’ve felt restless. You’ve had a need to broaden your hori­zons via ex­plor­ing un­fa­mil­iar ideas or meet­ing new peo­ple. But, also, you’re feel­ing ready to wel­come al­ter­ations in el­e­ments of your work or life­style that, only re­cently, you’d have re­fused even to con­sider. Now your in­stincts say the time has come, and with every step you take, you re­alise how right those feel­ings are.

SAGITTARIUS NOVEMBER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

Once you un­der­stand there’s no plan, idea or de­ci­sion that ev­ery­body will agree with, you see com­pro­mise is es­sen­tial. While this is some­thing you rarely do, that’s all the more rea­son you’ll find the process in­for­ma­tive and the out­come worth­while. Bet­ter yet, once you recog­nise be­cause of the na­ture of this pe­riod, ar­range­ments are ten­ta­tive, you’ll ven­ture into ter­ri­tory that you’d have avoided.

CAPRICORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 18

Or­di­nar­ily you’d never com­mit to any­thing, even a mi­nor ar­range­ment, with­out be­ing sure what’s in­volved. Yet be­tween the New Moon on June 24, and the pow­er­ful Capricorn Full Moon on July 9, life’s about tran­si­tion. There­fore, the more ideas you dis­cuss and the more you ex­plore, the bet­ter in­formed you’ll be when the time comes to ac­tu­ally make de­ci­sions in mid-July.

AQUARIUS JAN­UARY 19 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

You’re still ab­sorbed by the thrilling, if un­set­tling, ideas or of­fers that arose when Saturn su­perbly aligned with your ruler Uranus, a month ago, so you’re pay­ing lit­tle at­ten­tion to events that so in­ter­est oth­ers. Still, if asked for ad­vice, delve into the sit­u­a­tion in ques­tion. What you learn may be help­ful to oth­ers now, but could prove amaz­ingly in­for­ma­tive for you, as well.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

Watch­ing ar­range­ments you fought to or­gan­ise come un­done may be up­set­ting. How­ever, you’ve long felt these wouldn’t last but were a trial run. Know­ing that, delve into prob­lems, not with an eye to rem­e­dy­ing them but, rather, so you can learn how to avoid sim­i­lar dif­fi­cul­ties in the fu­ture. Then let these go, since what’s next is al­ready tak­ing form, and is there, on the hori­zon.
