A breakthrough for Taurus and exciting offers for Sagittarius! Read on for more of what the week will bring, from Diane’s astrologer Shelley von Strunckel.
March 20 – April 18
September’s not about planning but, rather, responding to unexpected developments, welcome and less so. Events may be exciting but, then, you’ve little control over what’s next. However, with the ideas planet Mercury retrograde until Thursday, others are as lacking in control or facts as you are. It’s out of character, but put off decisions until then. That way, you’ll make plans once, but they’ll last.
April 19 – May 19
Because the cycle of change that’s reshaping both your life and others’ began in early September, hopefully you’ve already realised that what initially seems most disruptive is actually a breakthrough, if in disguise. This continues to be the case, and every twist and turn will be as informative as it is unsettling. For now, join others in discussing those insights. Restoring order in your life can wait.
May 20 – June 19
While most of the errors triggered by your ruler Mercury’s retrograde cycle, which ends on Thursday the 22nd, are minor, they often undermine your confidence. Look back, however, and you’ll realise how much you learnt from the resulting discussions. These continue now, and could lead to changes as worthwhile as they are unanticipated. Think and act swiftly. These opportunities will vanish as quickly as they appeared.
June 20 – July 21
Although the influence of the Full Moon, on the 1st and the recent New Moon, is clear to you, because both were eclipses, unsettling events could have thrown you off balance. However, you’re only now discovering what you learnt, about certain people, situations or yourself as a result of those events. Consider whether you’re being over-cautious about similar matters now. Those insights could revolutionise your thinking.
July 22 – August 21
If there’s good reason, you’ll go along with even sudden changes. However, recent developments would be unsettling to your practical or financial life, and offered little. Or so it appeared. Still, explore. View these seemingly outmoded arrangements from a more flexible angle. This, in turn, will prepare you for the extraordinary offers triggered by your ruler the Sun’s link with fortunate Jupiter, during September’s final week.
August 22 – September 21
Currently, life’s like a jigsaw puzzle, but one that’s lacking important pieces. That’s no surprise, since with your ruler Mercury retrograde until Thursday the 22nd, you’ll either be short of facts or those you trust could be misinformed. Forget about trying to set things right. Instead, wait, watch and learn. Gradually the truth will surface and, often it will differ from anything you’d imagined or anticipated.
September 22 – October 21
There’s no denying the powerful and positive influence of Jupiter’s move into Libra, on the 9th, for a year. However, judging by September’s unruly planetary activity, it’s unlikely you’ll recognise either the benefits coming your way for what they are or spot necessary changes until events force your hand. Once there’s less confusion, next week, both those facts and the promise those changes offer will be apparent.
October 22 – November 20
Ordinarily you’d rather keep both your feelings and thoughts to yourself. However, with ideas planet Mercury powerfully aspecting your ruler Pluto twice within a few days, on the 21st and 23rd, the more you discuss and, equally, the more you listen to others’ ideas, the better. While some benefits will be instantly clear, others could take time to surface. Still, explore, and talk over, absolutely everything.
November 21 – December 20
Don’t be surprised if, after months of going it alone in several tricky situations, suddenly, all sorts of offers appear. And in all sorts of shapes and forms. This is the influence of your ruler Jupiter’s move, on the 9th, to accent joint efforts, and of many varieties. While, obviously, you can’t adopt them all, explore each in depth. You’ll be amazed what you learn.
December 21 – January 19
You’re being forced to declutter your life, in terms of both your activities and, possibly, certain alliances. However, as importantly, you’re being forced to review what worked in the past and what didn’t. This isn’t easy, but then, it’s preparing you for the dynamic cycle that begins with restless Mars’ move into Capricorn on the 27th. Those insights will prove valuable, and more often than you’d imagine.
January 20 – February 18
There are new ideas. And then there are the sudden, exciting but unsettled ideas, offers and developments you’re currently facing. Worse, things are moving swiftly and you’re short of facts, which means you’re unable to weigh up your options. Actually, with Mercury retrograde until Thursday, changes are likely. The solution? Trust your instincts. At the moment, they’re more reliable than those facts anyway.
February 19 – March 19
Others complain that you’re putting off decisions. But between the changes taking place in the world around you and your own constantly shifting perspective and priorities, what seems best one day is different the next. Forget about trying to explain this to anyone whose thinking is rigid and instead talk things over with those who share your vision. Together you’ll work things out, day by exciting day.
