The planetary setup in your birthday chart indicates you’ll be facing a mixture of welcome, if not thrilling, events and setbacks or difficulties, mostly minor. That may seem like everyday life except that, being your birthday, there’ll be something to learn from or gain, at least once you’ve thought things through. With most, that will be clear immediately. But in a few, you’ll need time to reflect on exactly what it is you can learn or how you’ll benefit from the insights these encounters and experiences are bringing your way.

Aries March 20 – April 19

Few things annoy you more than being unable to say what’s on your mind, especially if the issue is an important one. Yet despite your impatience, you’re short of facts, so lacking the ammunition necessary to win the battle. Bide your time. By the week’s close there’ll be powerful insights. They’ll change everything

Taurus April 20 – May 20

For ages you’ve known you’d have to tackle certain tricky personal issues but, understandably, have put it off. However, with both your ruler Venus and Mercury now positioned in the most reflective portion of your chart, you’ve no choice. Actually, the current planetary setup should make the process a lot easier.

Gemini May 21 – June 20

As much as you enjoy a lively exchange of ideas with others, being cornered into making joint decisions is quite another matter. Yet, at the moment, you’ve no choice. Knowing that, take advantage of the situation and gather as much information and as many insights as possible from those around you.

Cancer June 21 – July 21

Not all opportunities are recognisable as that, especially now, with so much in transition. Which means that although the Sun’s powerful link to fortunate Jupiter ushers in may be brilliant, you won’t necessarily recognise that at the time. That being the case, explore absolutely everything, even if briefly.

Leo July 22 – August 22

Being a fire sign, you’d always rather turn ideas into plans or tackle an issue as swiftly as possible. Recently, however, misunderstandings have both distracted you and created confusion. Now that you’re in a position to deal with these matters, move quickly, even if it means leaving important details for later.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

Although the Virgo Full Moon was in early March, you’re still wrestling with certain perplexing matters. In every case, you’ve been short of facts. However, also, in every case, the solution is the same. It’s to stop trying to figure things out for yourself and ask others for their insights and guidance.

Libra September 23 – October 22

When it comes to making certain perplexing decisions, timing is everything. While, ordinarily, thinking and acting swiftly is wise, in this case you’re urged to let most things wait until the Libra Full Moon, on the 31st. That may seem ages away, but who you meet and what you learn could change everything.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

Ordinarily, when presented with an appealing but risky option, you’d gather a few solid facts before committing. But the pace is too swift to ask any but the most basic of questions. Which means either doing nothing or trusting your intuition. Since the latter is usually right, it’s your best option.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 20

While, as a fire sign, you think and move swiftly, you’ve been defeated by certain challenging situations. Then, in late January the forthright Mars moved into Sagittarius, triggering a cycle that’s cornered you into acting on most of these. A few remain. Tackle them now, before Mars departs your sign, on the 17th.

Capricorn December 21 – January 19

It would be easy to mistake sudden changes in plans you worked hard to organise as an indication you misjudged something or missed a detail. On the contrary, this week’s planetary activity ushers in changes, small and large, nearly every day. Some will be minor, others disruptive but all will be timely.

Aquarius January 20 – February 17

The only problem with the sudden, and probably unanticipated, ideas or offers triggered by the recent superb alliance between Mars and your ruler Uranus is you won’t necessarily have recognised those events for what they are. You may even turn them down, at least initially. Review them, and consider saying yes.

Pisces February 18 – March 19

Most Pisceans are intuitive enough to sense which ideas, offers or encounters are worthwhile versus those that offer little. Yet with circumstances shifting and the Pisces New Moon, on the 17th, introducing a fresh perspective, you’re urged to at least explore everything that comes your way. You won’t regret it.
