ARIES (MARCH 20-APRIL 18)
The way through difficult situations is to engage in discussion. Really be willing to hear the other side of the story before making any comment. When you do, speak from your heart. This is about finding common ground, not about being right.
TAURUS (APRIL 19-MAY 19)
Change continues to be good for you, especially when it frees you up to do more of what you love. As most of your attention will be on home, family or private life, you won’t want to be tied down by social or community commitments.
GEMINI (MAY 20-JUNE 20)
Let-downs, complications and general uncertainty are par for the course over the next few days. Some of it is Murphy’s Law – things do go wrong! But it is also clear that you will have to make that difficult choice which you thought you’d avoided.
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 21)
The feeling of being stuck will soon pass, so don’t make a big deal about it. It is to your advantage to be informed, so get all the facts before entering into any negotiations. Also, be wary of sob stories. Examine them with a discerning eye.
LEO (JULY 22-AUGUST 21)
Encounters with unusual people add sparkle to your life. Their joie de vivre is an encouragement to be more adventurous. This brings up questions around freedom and what is enough financially. Simplifying is attractive, but will take careful budgeting and planning.
VIRGO (AUGUST 22-SEPTEMBER 21)
A temporary wobble is throwing you off track. See it as an opportunity to review ways in which you have gone overboard in aiming for perfection. It is time to restore the balance. Look at what you’ve been neglecting or undervaluing.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 22-OCTOBER 22)
Rather than wasting time explaining yourself to others, get on and do what feels right for you. Otherwise, you’ll miss the moment. Once you set the ball rolling, there is a good chance that others will join you. So, you won’t end up alone.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23-NOVEMBER 21)
Lead by example, rather than imposing your will on others. Inviting a diversity of input will give you a wider range of options. And it will be more creative. This is a particularly successful time for business activities that have an innovative slant.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22-DECEMBER 22)
Combine idealism with pragmatism and you have a winning combination. Make sure you refine your plan, prepare well and are not in a rush to see results. Some cherished fantasies may also have to be discarded because they block the way to a better future.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23-JANUARY 19)
Difficulty pinning people down is hampering getting things done. As a result you have no choice but to be flexible or to consider alternatives. Take some time to do a rethink. There may well be other ways to achieve the same ends.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20-FEBRUARY 18)
An injection of lightness and laughter is a welcome antidote to the serious matters of life. This is a good time to for a brief getaway, or to spend the day doing something completely different, preferably in charming company. However, think twice about longdistance travel.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19-MARCH 19)
You can’t save the world, but you can be helpful to those around you. Small acts of service or kindness do make a difference, especially when done with love. As soon as you start feeling overwhelmed, make time to replenish yourself physically and emotionally.
