Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
Because you do more in a day than others may do in a week, once you’ve got things organised, you shift your focus to the next task. So you avoid revisiting past arrangements. Now, however, not only should you rethink certain matters, if you don’t act swiftly, things could come undone overnight.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
As a practical Taurus, you long ago learnt that no matter how urgent difficulties seem, hastily organised solutions can actually make things worse. Still, despite your doubts, you can’t help but wonder whether what’s just been suggested would work. Not only will it, this could eliminate those problems for good.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
It’s rare that you’ll greet a new idea or suggested change with a firm refusal. Yet because others haven’t thought these through, what seem relatively simple ideas could, at least from your perspective, turn into a nightmare. Point out your concerns, combining clarity about their nature with the greatest tact possible.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
Of course, watching arrangements you struggled to organise come under the scrutiny of others, and being found flawed, is disappointing. Yet while you couldn’t pinpoint them, you’ve long suspected there were problems. Resist the temptation to seek remedies. Let these go, serene in the knowledge that something better is on its way.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
You’ve intended to tackle one particularly complex issue but haven’t, mostly because the individuals involved are nearly as complicated as the actual situation. What’s more, until recently, you’ve had plenty of excuses to put off dealing with these. But now nothing is preventing you tackling them. Besides, they’re becoming urgent.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
When arrangements you’ve worked hard to organise come undone, your initial impulse is to shore them up. However, with so much in transition in the background, you’re urged to pause and consider whether the foundation on which you based plans is so altered that you really must rethink everything.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
Recent confrontations may have cleared the air and, better yet, exposed issues that have been worrying you. Still, you can’t help but wonder if things couldn’t have been handled more tactfully, and thus, resulted in less drama. Actually, no. Those dramas forced certain otherwise secretive individuals to show their hand.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
There’s a fine line between sticking with something or, indeed, somebody you believe in and being stubborn. This issue is exactly what you’re dealing with at the moment. The real problem is that you still refuse to believe certain facts are true. At least discuss these. What you learn could change everything.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
Little is more satisfying than making progress in previously frustrating situations, which is now the case. However, it’s at a price, and that is acknowledging the need to let go of certain longstanding arrangements. While your attachment to these is understandable, changes in the circumstances mean they’ve become increasingly burdensome.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
Planning ahead makes sense. While that’s true in practical matters, put off any pivotal decisions regarding personal or emotional issues until you’re benefiting from the heightened feelings triggered by the Capricorn Full Moon, in early July. That may seem ages from now, but the resulting insights will be worth the wait.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
Few things are more challenging than having to keep certain things to yourself. What’s more, because you’re not secretive by nature, being careful what you say because of others’ need for discretion is understandable but, also, is complicating your life. Still, it’s important to them, and won’t last forever.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
When you were economical with the truth recently, it was because you were sidestepping facts you knew would upset others. Since then these have surfaced and, as you feared, certain individuals were troubled by these events. What’s most important is the recognition that these, and the people involved, would need your attention.
