IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY
Setting goals is one thing. Recent events opened the door to activities or alliances that are, in a way, a dream come true. Yet the costs are greater than you’d anticipated. This isn’t just about money but the impact on your time and even certain commitments or loyalties. While you may be able to work out these issues, it’s worth asking yourself whether what once seemed a dream is as good as you hoped it would be.
Aries March 20 – April 18
Your ruler Mars’s move into Aries in late January, triggered a cycle of questioning and, recently, exploration. Now that Mars is accenting practical and financial matters, your focus will shift to considering whether who and what you’ve encountered is worth your while. Be patient. This could take longer than you’d imagined.
Taurus April 19 – May 19
facing questions that involve matters you’ve been asked to keep to yourself is never easy. Yet that’s exactly what you’re contending with. What’s more, the individuals in question have every right to know these facts. Discuss this frankly. While it will require tact, it will be worth the effort.
Gemini May 20 – June 20
Between now and the end of March, your ruler Mercury moves through two signs and forms a series of powerful planetary aspects. Since this suggests frequent shifts in circumstances and, in turn, in your priorities, ensure plans are flexible. And, equally, exchange ideas about those changes often, if not every day.
Cancer June 21 – July 21
For ages you’ve been sidestepping discussions with certain individuals who have a well-earned reputation for being difficult. Now, however, circumstances leave you little option but to raise your concerns. These will receive a surprising warm reception, mostly because the individual in question is just as concerned as you are.
Leo July 22 – August 21
While you’ve no fear of standing up to those who’re being unfair, annoying or who need to be dealt with firmly, that doesn’t mean you enjoy it. And, in fact, you’re in no mood to tackle any such unsettling situations. In reality, the longer you wait, the better.
Virgo August 22 – September 21
Now that Mercury has joined the Sun in the portion of your chart that’s about co-operating closely with others, personally or at work, and especially practical and financial matters, you’ve a long list of things to do and deal with. Overwhelming as it seems, you’ll get through most of these tasks swiftly.
Libra September 22 – October 22
As a Libra, and somebody ruled by the gracious but canny Venus, you’re usually able to navigate through even the trickiest of circumstances without triggering a drama. At the moment, however, a little theatricality wouldn’t just help, it would ensure certain tricky issues are discussed with the necessary frankness and openness.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
The issue isn’t that your views and those of others differ. It’s that you don’t entirely trust what they say, so are wary of debating even the simplest of points. While it’s true, their facts could be wrong, you needn’t avoid discussions. It’s just agreements of any kind should wait.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 20
The easygoing nature that is part of being a Sagittarius has made you friends and, often, resulted in others being grateful for your willingness to tolerate their demands, needs or cope with tricky situations. Now, bizarrely, you’re being less tolerant about changes in your own life. Take things as they come.
Capricorn December 21 – January 18
Obviously, you’d rather not reveal inner doubts to those who you don’t know that well. Yet the individuals in question assume, mostly because of your attitude, that you’re well equipped to deal with certain complex issues. Explain that you’re not. And now. They won’t mind. In fact, they’ll give it little thought.
Aquarius January 19 – February 17
Although you’ve witnessed others struggling with ups and downs, and in a variety of situations, your own arrangements have been relatively consistent. That’s about to change. Worrying as unexpected developments may be in the short term, explore what arises. These events will trigger a review as timely as it will be helpful.
Pisces February 18 – March 19
Those around you, from family and friends or colleagues or even neighbours, enjoy chatting with you and, at times, discuss their worries or, occasionally, intimate concerns. While you sometimes advise them, for the time being, say little. Your words could be misunderstood, and you could be blamed for the resulting problems.
