Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
Only days ago, you were convinced that the plans you’d organised would proceed as you expected. Yet with every passing hour, it’s becoming increasingly clear that’s unlikely. Judging by the coming days’ planetary activity, the more flexible both your plans and your expectations are, the easier life will be.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
Being forced to say farewell to familiar elements of your life, habits you enjoy or even having to let go of possessions can seem random and unfair, if not cruel. Yet, deep down, you’re well aware that while you derive pleasure from these, that attachment is preventing you from broadening your horizons.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
Ordinarily, when things don’t add up, it’s an indication of either carelessness or, worse, dishonesty. Yet with so much changing so swiftly, it’s no surprise that you’ve questions, and in a number of areas of your life. Ironically, since others are aware of this chaos, they’ll thank you for pointing out any inconsistencies.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
Don’t allow tricky situations or irritating individuals get to you. While the past weeks have been challenging, each issue you’ve faced taught you a skill or added vital facts to your knowledge. Once the Sun moves into Cancer, on the 21st, you’ll be able to take advantage of all those insights.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
Dealing with unwelcome changes is one thing. But having to accept the plans of others, ones you’re not at all happy about, is quite another matter. Yet you’ve no choice. While, eventually, you’ll be able to make changes, once you do , you may realise those arrangements are actually rather good. Dr changes?
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
It may be hard to believe, but recently you were so convinced your views about controversial matters were right that you saw no reason to listen to others’ ideas. Until, of course, events forced you to pay attention to these. The facts you’re learning and insights you’re gaining will revolutionise those convictions.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
As much as you were dreading certain conversations that would, inevitably involve confronting others, they went brilliantly. In fact, the individuals in question seemed relieved you raised these issues. This alone was good news but even better, they were delighted to talk things through and clear up any confusion.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
Only days ago you were upset at the idea of certain longstanding elements of your life coming to an end. You were, in fact, ready to battle to keep them going. Yet, within this short period you’ve not only realised what a burden they were, you’re wondering why you didn’t get rid of them earlier.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
As much as you’d prefer to adopt an optimistic attitude about the many, and often extensive, changes currently unfolding, you’re concerned. And these worries are as much about others as your own circumstances. Actually, it’s both, since whatever variety of difficulties they encounter, these would, in time, have an impact on you.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
Most Capricorns are super-responsible, so will shoulder the blame for things that go wrong, even if those problems weren’t necessarily your fault. Certain individuals have recognised this, and are taking advantage of it, by giving the impression you’re responsible for their errors.. Address this now, and be forthright. Nothing less will work.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
Leaving issues for others to deal with is not only unlike you, it’s worrying. This is primarily because you fear the approach certain people would take to resolving the most crucial of issues. Worrying as that is, the individual in question is well informed, enough they can be trusted.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
Usually, when you’re lacking inspiration, your very fertile imagination will take over. The only problem is, even that isn’t working, and you’ve absolutely no idea what to think and even less, to say. View this as an invitation to be still. To do nothing. Strange as it seems, it’s a hugely powerful option.
