Nothing’s more beneficial that organising plans, needing to rethink them and then do it all again. And that’s exactly what your birthday chart says you’ll be doing. While, initially, all these changes will seem exhausting, over time you’ll realise how much you’re learning from each version, and that what seemed the best option could be improved upon, not once, but several times. This is, in fact, the biggest lesson from your birthday stars, that there’s always something new to discover.

Aries March 20 – April 19

You’re on the verge of seriously upsetting somebody. The problem is, you were worried about the seemingly underhand behaviour of the individual in question. Once you trusted them. Now you’re not so sure. And this is the problem. Watch them too closely and they’ll feel guilty, which will only make things worse.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

As much as you’ve enjoyed the focus on broadening your horizons, and in all sorts of ways, you’re eager to make decisions based on what you’ve learnt. That time will come. Once your ruler, Venus, moves into the decisive midheaven angle of your chart, on the 18th, events will demand you take action.

Gemini May 21 – June 20

Initially you were amused by the moody nature and seemingly endless dramas of one particular individual. It kept life interesting. Since then, however, you’re begun to realise it was all about them, and they rarely asked or cared about you. Since then you’re far less interested in their company.

Cancer June 21 – July 21

Only days ago you wouldn’t just have objected to last minute changes in plans, you’d have been irritated that others didn’t keep an eye on things. However, recent events have taught you that, if you adopt a mellow approach to such matters, you’ll manage to ignore those minor issues that would ordinarily upset you.

Leo July 22 – August 22

When you learn breakthroughs are coming, of course, you’re delighted. It’s just that the form in which these appear or the direction they take may not seem remotely welcome. Still, explore these. Once you learn more, you’ll realise this isn’t about reorganising existing arrangements but creating something new and exciting.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

Judging by the tense planetary links to unpredictable Uranus over the next few days, the fewer plans you make, the less stressful life will be. And if you must organise something, make sure what you arrange is flexible enough to ride out the sudden, and inevitable, changes due to appear.

Libra September 23 – October 22

For ages you’ve known you’d have to draw the line with one particularly provocative individual. But you’ve put off saying anything, mostly because you dreaded any potential confrontation. At this point, however, you’d rather deal with that than face even one more day of their bad attitude and unruly behaviour.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

Only days ago you agreed to last minute changes in certain longstanding plans. While it was annoying and upsetting, circumstances shifted and there was nobody to blame. Actually, with so much in transition, you’re urged to adopt a more flexible attitude towards sudden changes. It will make your life a lot easier.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 20

Is life is a bit too predictable? That’s no surprise, mostly because the issues you’re facing are almost entirely based on boring practical matters and so, allow for little in the way of creative solutions. And, worse, there’s no battling these. However, the sooner you get these dealt with, the more swiftly they’ll be history.

Capricorn December 21 – January 19

By no means will January be a dull month for anybody. But with your ruler Saturn having just moved into your sign in late December, you’re only just becoming accustomed to its influence and, even more, the questions its presence raises about what you’re doing now and your plans for the future.

Aquarius January 20 – February 17

Every New Moon is about both a review and a fresh perspective. However, this Wednesday’s is taking you within, to question elements of your life to which you give little thought. While you’ll learn a lot, even more important, this is preparing you for the potentially life-changing Aquarius solar eclipse on 15 February.

Pisces February 18 – March 19

Only days ago, the coming weeks’ plans seemed clear and everybody knew what to expect. But between January’s unsettled planetary setup and two eclipses, even the simplest of arrangements will change, and change again. Knowing that, ensure what you organise is flexible enough to ride out these changes.
