ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18

In late July, when your ruler Mars and the Sun met in the part of your chart that ac­cents those peo­ple and ac­tiv­i­ties that bring you joy, you made cer­tain thrilling plans or com­mit­ments. Now, how­ever, sud­den events are trig­ger­ing a re­think, if not changes. Your in­stinct may be to bat­tle these. In­stead, ex­plore them. They could add some­thing as won­der­ful as it is un­ex­pected.

TAURUS APRIL 19 – MAY 19

Thus far, you’ve man­aged tricky sit­u­a­tions in such a way that you’ve sidestepped wor­ry­ing de­vel­op­ments. How­ever, the events trig­gered by Mon­day’s eclipse won’t just ac­cel­er­ate this process, they’ll of­fer a very dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive. While things won’t nec­es­sar­ily fit to­gether right away, the more you dis­cuss, ex­plore and ex­pe­ri­ence them, the more ap­peal­ing they’ll be­come.

GEMINI MAY 20 – JUNE 20

While there’ll be com­plaints about un­ex­pected de­vel­op­ments, both in the world around you and in ex­ist­ing plans, you sense a pat­tern form­ing. You’re right, al­though it’s un­likely things will come to­gether just yet. Be­tween fre­quent changes in cir­cum­stances and your ruler Mer­cury ret­ro­grade from Au­gust 13 un­til Septem­ber 5, ev­ery day will of­fer some­thing un­ex­pected but also ex­cit­ing.

CAN­CER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

Be­ing ruled by the Moon, you’ve an in­stinc­tive sense of its power and, equally, the changes events such as Mon­day’s lu­nar eclipse usher in. While they’re as un­set­tling for you as ev­ery­body else, you’re also aware once those feel­ings pass, you’ll have made progress and, in the process, left be­hind el­e­ments of your life you’ve long sus­pected need to be­come part of the past.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 21

Or­di­nar­ily, when ei­ther long­stand­ing plans or more re­cent ar­range­ments or al­liances face chal­lenges, as cur­rently seems to be the case, you’d fight to keep things as they are. But now you sense po­ten­tial changes will foster worth­while dis­cus­sions. Even more, the more you ex­plore, the clearer it will be that once-un­in­ter­est­ing op­tions hold greater prom­ise than you’d have imag­ined.

VIRGO AU­GUST 22 – SEPTEM­BER 21

As much of a re­lief as get­ting things or­gan­ised would be, you’re in a pe­riod of flux. Be­tween Au­gust’s two eclipses, on the 7th and the 21st and, equally, your ruler Mer­cury go­ing ret­ro­grade in Virgo, on Sun­day the 13th, changes in cir­cum­stances, your own re­quire­ments and the needs of oth­ers will mean re­think­ing things. Know­ing that, en­sure what­ever you plan can be eas­ily al­tered.

LIBRA SEPTEM­BER 22 – OC­TO­BER 22

On the sur­face you seem easy­go­ing. Only those who’re clos­est are aware how care­fully you or­gan­ise your own life and oth­ers’ plans. But even at your clever­est, you won’t be able to out­wit the twists and turns trig­gered by this month’s dra­matic plan­e­tary ac­tiv­ity. Know­ing that, main­tain an in­quis­i­tive at­ti­tude and en­sure plans are flex­i­ble.

SCORPIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

Only days ago you were ei­ther bat­tling events you re­garded as un­wise, if not un­fair, or chal­leng­ing cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als’ ques­tion­able de­ci­sions. Now that you’re be­gin­ning to ex­pe­ri­ence the in­flu­ence of Au­gust’s two eclipses, on the 7th and 21st, your pow­er­ful Scorpio in­stincts say you’re bet­ter off go­ing with the flow. Take heart as who and what you en­counter will en­rich your life.

SAGITTARIUS NOVEM­BER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

Re­cent events may be ir­ri­tat­ing or, per­haps, rouse a pow­er­ful sense of in­jus­tice. Still, these also in­volve mat­ters you can’t ig­nore. Even more, think twice be­fore you bat­tle the peo­ple or sit­u­a­tions in ques­tion, be­cause you’re ei­ther short of facts or those you’d be tan­gling with are tough. For now, take a deep breath and give in. You can state your case, just not now.

CAPRICORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 18

When you set a goal, you’ll care­fully craft your plans, then put them into ac­tion. And where oth­ers are impatient, you’ll per­sist. Judg­ing by the in­flu­ence of to­day’s clash be­tween Jupiter and the ma­nip­u­la­tive Pluto, you’re fac­ing ob­sta­cles more com­plex or far-reach­ing than you’d an­tic­i­pated. The ideal re­sponse? For now, these are best dealt with by wait­ing and watch­ing.

AQUARIUS JAN­UARY 19 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

For ages there’s been talk of changes that would re­shape your life, al­liances or lifestyle. How­ever, with Mon­day’s eclipsed Full Moon speed­ing up the process and height­en­ing feel­ings, you could worry that it’s too much, too soon. True, the pace and range of events could seem over­whelm­ing. Once the dust set­tles, within weeks, you’ll be thrilled things hap­pened the way they did.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

The ide­al­is­tic side of your na­ture, as a Pisces, would al­ways rather trust oth­ers than live with sus­pi­cion. Yet judg­ing by the events trig­gered by Au­gust’s dra­matic plan­e­tary ac­tiv­ity, even sim­ple plans won’t pro­ceed as hoped. Mostly, how­ever, these un­set­tling changes will be the re­sult of events no­body could have an­tic­i­pated. For now, for­get about fi­nal­is­ing plans. Live one day at a time.
