Aries (March 20 – April 19)

For ages you’ve intended to explore certain intriguing ideas and, equally, places you’re eager to visit. However, something or somebody has always distracted you. Now, suddenly, things will fall into place, like magic. Forget details. You’ll learn what’s exciting day by day. The sooner you make that first move, the better.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

True, ordinarily you’re able to assess and handle complex decisions, both swiftly and wisely. However, those you’re currently dealing with are themselves in transition. That being the case, focus on plans that will work for the time-being. But, equally, make a point of ensuring that they’re easy to rethink, overnight, if necessary.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Only days ago, you were wondering how you could disentangle yourself from an arrangement as restrictive as it’s been dull. Then sudden developments triggered changes that were unexpected and unsettling. While those around you complained, you weren’t just relieved, to your relief, your enthusiasm has returned.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

True, the recent Full Moon was early last week. However, you’re still experiencing the fallout from both your own heightened feelings and others’ ups and downs. You may have tried discussing these, then wisely decided not to. That was wise. Now, however, the time has come. Be frank. You won’t regret it.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Over the past few weeks, you’ve been as busy having a good time as you’ve been dealing with a range of exciting but demanding situations. While, as a Leo and a quick-thinking fire sign, you thrive on such challenges, not everybody does. The trick? When discussing your plans, make a list and share it with others.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Being ruled by the fast-moving Mercury, you have a knack for dealing with sudden changes in anything from longstanding to recent plans and you thrive on the challenge. Others aren’t as easygoing about the unexpected though. The solution? If possible, don’t mention the changes.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

It’s not that you’ve been unwilling to discuss certain matters. The problem has been either a lack of solid facts or, worse, you have been cornered by somebody who is determined to turn what should be a civilised discussion into a battle. The solution? Take a deep breath, and adopt a stately pace.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Long ago you realised that the best way of handling certain troublesome individuals is to let them do exactly what they want. While that may seem weak, they’ll soon realise their antics won’t get them the kind of attention they’re seeking. The problem? Once again, they’re acting up. You now know how to handle it.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Usually, planning ahead is wise. And while, according to the heavens, a lot is happening, much of which is exciting, you’re still short of the facts necessary to make lasting plans or, still less, a commitment. That’s no surprise. Things are unlikely to come together until the Sagittarius New Moon on the 12th.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

As a practical Capricorn, you’re well aware how unwise it is to proceed with future plans while you’re still trying to disentangle yourself from past arrangements. The secret? Do something out of character and blend the two, yet ensure whatever you organise is flexible enough you can rethink those arrangements.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 17)

If life’s been more about dull practicalities and focused too little on the exciting breakthroughs you thrive on, that’s no surprise. However, as much as you’d like these important but tedious matters to vanish, they won’t. In fact, the sooner you tackle them, the more swiftly they’ll become history.

Pisces (February 18 – March 19)

You don’t think of it until faced with changes in circumstances and, pressing decisions. However, this is currently the case. While some facts are clear, with so much in transition, what seems a reliable plan one day could be revolutionised the next. Knowing that, explore every option but, then, wait for the dust to settle.

If it's your birthday tomorrow...

Usually, you’re the first to explore new ideas and potential changes, if only because you enjoy keeping up with what’s happening, who’s involved and the direction things are going. Currently, however, events or, possibly, the ideas of others are likely to trigger far-reaching changes. Appealing as these seem, not only are you short of facts, it’s clear you’ll have little control. While, understandably that’s worrying, explore absolutely everything. The more you learn, the more optimistic you’ll be about what’s coming your way.
