Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aries

Aries

March 20 – April 18

By now you’ve undoubtedly realized that while you can make plans, within days they’re likely to change, sometimes substantially. While ordinarily you’d be irritated by such sudden twists and turns, it’s soon clear even disruptive developments are actually an improvement, just an unexpected one. By the time this cycle ends, mid-January, your activities and future plans will be transformed and better yet, far more exciting.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Taurus

Taurus

April 19 – May 19

Although many of the past weeks’ changes are no surprise, a few were as sudden as they were unsettling. However, things are already falling into place. Convincing certain individuals plans are wise, many of which you know little about yourself, is quite another matter. The secret? Get others involved, even if you say it’s only an experiment. They’ll soon be as enthusiastic as you are.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Gemini

Gemini

May 20 – June 20

While there’s no avoiding the unexpected errors typical of your ruler Mercury’s retrograde cycle, which ends on the 8th, these can lead to exciting discoveries. This is especially the case now. Instead of focusing on righting those wrongs, explore everything. What you learn and who you meet in the process of dealing with the resulting questions will add something wonderful, and possibly lasting, to your life.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Cancer

Cancer

June 21 – July 21

Events are exciting yet worryingly unsettling and, even more, it’s unclear how things will fit together. Yet your instincts are saying optimism is in order. Take it slowly. This cycle of change will peak with the Cancer Full Moon, on the 12th. After that, you’ll know more about the new chapter that’s just beginning and will, as a result, be clearer about your feelings as well.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Leo

Leo

July 22 – August 21

Making decisions, even very tricky ones, is no problem for you. However, between unsettled situations and a lack of solid facts, you’re unsure what to do. The answer is: wait and watch. Only after you’re benefitting from the insights triggered by powerful aspects between your ruler the Sun and Pluto, Uranus and expansive Jupiter, between the 7th and 12th, will the way ahead be clear.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Virgo

Virgo

August 22 – September 21

You’re in the midst of a changeable cycle. The trick to dealing with plans, simple or complex, urgent or long term is to focus on the big picture and, for now, forget about details. This allows you to rethink things, possibly more than once, as is likely when the coming days’ unexpected twists and turns arise. You can fine tune plans next week, when things are calmer.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Sagittarius Libra

Libra

September 22 – October 22

There’s a difference between knowing you’ll have to tackle certain practical or work issues and these being urgent. Although the coming days’ events make it clear this takes priority, you’ve time to think things though and, where appropriate, talk over potential plans with others. Take your time. Those discussions and what comes to light could lead to a serious reassessment of your vision for the future.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Scorpio

Scorpio

October 23 – November 21

For weeks you’ve been wrestling with crucial but complex decisions but every time you’ve devised a plan, changes in circumstances demanded you rethink things. Within days you’ll gain the clarity necessary not only to commit to arrangements but to stand your ground should others question your intentions. While plans won’t last forever, they’ll form a solid foundation for you to build on over the months to come.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Sagittarius

Sagittarius

November 22  – December 20

When Mercury’s retrograde cycle began on 19 December, you noticed the typical errors, dealt with most and, bizarrely, found many unexpectedly informative. These insights shift to more personal issues, some of which have puzzled you for ages. The only mistake you could make it to rush things. Take it slowly and what you learn will be helpful now, and even more, as the future unfolds.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Capricorn

Capricorn

December 21 – January 18

Every New Moon brings a fresh perspective. However, because the recent one was actually in Capricorn, you’ve been both reviewing past decisions and equally, will be rethinking your vision for the future. While, ordinarily, you’d make solid plans, during this thrilling period of exciting, if unexpected, developments you’re urged to adopt a more flexible approach. That will enable you to rethink arrangements, possibly more than once.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aquarius

Aquarius

January 19 – February 17

You don’t think of yourself as being independent until situations in which decisions that should be yours to make arise. You’re facing several such matters, large and small. And you’re struggling with several. While in some, the issue is who’s in charge, in most the fact is, while these have to do with you’re your life, work or various responsibilities, they’re in the hands of others.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Pisces

Pisces

February 18 – March 19

If there’s a single message for you from the current planetary setup, it’s to speak your mind, about your life, the decisions you’re making and any issues that involve others. But, just as much, you’re encouraged to be frank about both your feelings about certain individuals and your views regarding their activities. Initially this might worry you but you’ll soon realize this frankness is crucial.

WEEK OF DECEMBER 19

Libras need to go with the flow, while Leos should take their time before making an important decision. Read on for more of what the week has in store, from Diane’s astrologer Shelley von Strunckel.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aries

Aries

March 20 – April 18

One of your strengths is your decisiveness and, even more, your capacity to stick to a goal until it’s been achieved. However, your ruler Mars’s move into the most strategic part of your chart triggers a six-week cycle during which you’re forced to go with the flow. If, initially, this seems weak, you’ll soon realize just how valuable the insights and lessons coming your way are.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Taurus

Taurus

April 19 – May 19

It may seem that, recently, you’ve been pushed around by an unfair destiny. Peculiar as many proposed changes in various elements of your life have seemed, few will become reality. Rather, each has been about broadening your horizons so that, when you actually do need to commit to those changes, instead of grumbling about the unfamiliar, you’ll recognize its potential and say an enthusiastic yes.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Gemini

Gemini

May 20 – June 19

Between the recent Gemini Full Moon, which shook things up emotionally, and your ruler Mercury retrograde from the 19th, life is by no means dull. Although shakeups are unavoidable, they’re encouraging you to say farewell to habits, arrangements or even goals that are holding you back, although it may not seem so. Let them go and suddenly an exciting range of new options will appear.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Cancer

Cancer

June 20 – July 21

Final as the decisions you’re making seem, they’re actually part of a pattern of exploration in several areas of your life. Say yes, knowing that within days, you’ll have learnt a lot and, better yet, be able to rethink things. By the week’s close, you’ll have exchanged any anxiety for eager anticipation of what’s next. And final decisions? Things come together at mid-January’s Cancer Full Moon.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Leo

Leo

July 22 – August 21

Being a fire sign, you think and move swiftly. Now, however, you’re urged to take your time, even in seemingly straightforward practical matters. Between Mercury retrograde, from Monday, and late December’s thrilling if unsettling planetary activity, even the simplest of plans will change, possibly often. Knowing that, take a chance. Ideas or arrangements that, only recently, seemed well beyond your reach could soon become reality.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Virgo

Virgo

August 22 – September 21

As a sensible Virgo, you know change isn’t just necessary, it’s an essential way of breaking up routine. Yet you’ve been battling to keep certain arrangements as they are. While your ruler Mercury’s retrograde cycle, which begins on the 19th, triggers confusion it will also highlight where changes are needed. Move swiftly and, better yet, you’ll be able to take advantage of late December’s stunning planetary activity.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Sagittarius Libra

Libra

September 22 – October 21

The trick to dealing with this week’s events and, in fact, the many twists and turns until the end of the year is to forget about planning ahead. Instead, discuss and deal with only what you can do each day. That achieved, shift your focus to what and who you enjoy. That prepares you for the next day’s decisions and, even more, the unexpected twists they bring.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Scorpio

Scorpio

October 22 – November 20

While you’re not exactly thrilled about the changes currently being discussed, you’ve plenty of time to ask questions and reflect on your feelings about letting go of certain longstanding elements of your life. These may be familiar but, as you’re well aware, some are holding you back and others have become predictable, if not dull. Soon you’ll be making those changes, and with unanticipated enthusiasm.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Sagittarius

Sagittarius

November 21 – December 20

As much as you enjoy discussing new ideas and potential changes, you’re oddly resistant to making them. However, judging by the powerful planetary activity which involves both your ruler Jupiter and Saturn, which is positioned in Sagittarius, between now and the end of the year, those changes are as exciting as they are inevitable. Knowing that, go with the flow. You won’t regret it.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Capricorn

Capricorn

December 21 – January 19

Letting go of familiar and often reassuring elements of the past isn’t easy when you’re unsure what’s next. Still, between the rare and amazing planetary activity involving the fortunate Jupiter, your ruler Saturn and Uranus, next week, and the breakthroughs triggered by the Capricorn New Moon on the 29th, miracles are possible. All you need is the patience to allow the promised extraordinary events to unfold.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aquarius

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

You don’t think of yourself as a control freak. Yet as much as you enjoy discussing potential changes, if they involve ideas so new you don’t fully understand them, it’s another matter. While you can’t halt the cycle of change being triggered by alliances involving Jupiter, Saturn and your ruler Uranus, you can adopt an inquisitive approach that allows you to explore without actually committing.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Pisces

Pisces

February 19 – March 19

In the two years since Mars was last in Pisces, you and the world around you have changed. While its move into your sign, on the 19th, brings the urgency and decisiveness the planet’s known for, you’ve plenty of time to review existing arrangements and explore your options. By late January, when it departs, you’ll have made lots of decisions, many as unanticipated as they are thrilling.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aries

Aries

March 20 – April 18

It’s frustrating. Your ruler Mars’s position indicates you must either sidestep confrontations about crucial matters or where action’s vital, do nothing. Yet, as you’ll soon discover, you’re short of information, so would soon have regretted what you said or did. Encouraging as the facts that surface this week may be, do the minimum. This will save you trouble, now and in the future.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Taurus

Taurus

April 19 – May 19

Enjoyable as the company of others, from family to close friends or colleagues, may be, allowing them to take over decisions that are really yours to make is another matter. Yet in certain situations they’re better informed than you are. Acknowledge that and, instead of arguing, you’ll give in, yet make it clear if things don’t work out as promised, you’ll do things your way.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Gemini

Gemini

May 20 – June 20

When life’s dull, you suffer from the resulting boredom. However, you’ve been overwhelmed by the unsettling events you’ve faced since your ruler Mercury went retrograde on 19 December. Although it’s now moving forward, things won’t return to normal right away. Unsettling as the fallout, of various kinds, that lasts until mid-month may be, what you learn and deal with could prevent serious problems in the future.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Cancer

Cancer

June 21 – July 21

As you’ve learnt recently, often the best solution for difficult situations is to simply live through them, one day at a time. Looking back, you’re recognizing how much you’ve learnt. Better yet, this has prepared you for the personal insights and pivotal decisions triggered by Thursday’s emotionally intense Cancer Full Moon. After that, you’ll know exactly which elements of your life need a rethink and why.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Leo

Leo

July 22 – August 21

Sometimes obstacles are a mere nuisance to be overcome. But those you’re currently facing are about you broadening your horizons via new places, plans or people. True, some weren’t your idea and so you’re hesitant about taking things further. However, with circumstances changing anyway, you’re bound to learn from these and could, once you’ve done a bit of exploration, decide they’re actually rather exciting.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Virgo

Virgo

August 22 – September 21

For you, as a Virgo and an earth sign, facts are facts. Yet with your ruler Mercury retrograde since 19 December and only just resuming forward motion today, you’ve learnt things aren’t always that straightforward. While it would be unwise to expect things to calm down right away, you’re better informed and, therefore, well prepared to deal with even the most unanticipated of ideas, discussions or developments.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Sagittarius Libra

Libra

September 22 – October 22

Despite the current focus on certain practical matters or work obligations, and the decisions they’d involve, the plans you organize are unlikely to last. Worrying as that seems initially, you’ll soon realize it frees you to organize plans but sidestep potentially time consuming details. Not only will these changes, probably several times, so will your priorities. The more flexible the plans you make, the better.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Scorpio

Scorpio

October 23 – November 21

Unsettling as recent unexpected events, and the resulting discussions were, they also both exposed concealed information and lead to several amazingly frank conversations. These explained perplexing issues but also made you realize what, and who, means most and, in fact, what you’d fight for. While battles are unlikely, this clarifies your priorities as never before, allowing you to talk over in depth, and finalize, crucial decisions.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Sagittarius

Sagittarius

November 22  – December 20

Ordinarily mistakes, your own or those made by others, don’t bother you. However, with Mercury having been retrograde in Sagittarius, certain errors roused feelings of doubt or irritation you’d been ignoring. Address these now. It won’t be easy but with Mercury resuming forward motion today, the timing’s perfect to tackle confusion of any variety, whether it’s personal or involving others. What you learn could be life-changing.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Capricorn

Capricorn

December 21 – January 18

It’s a tricky period in a changeable cycle. Consequently, while Mercury’s retrograde cycle concludes today, ending one source of confusion, both circumstances and your perspective on a number of matters, personal and more worldly, will change and change again. So instead of struggling to organize a single plan and stick to it, ensure both arrangements and your attitude are flexible enough to ride out unexpected developments.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aquarius

Aquarius

January 19 – February 17

Having worked hard to organize plans or make decisions, you’re now facing changes in circumstances. This is frustrating. But you’re actually better off regarding both existing arrangements and future plans as tentative until the Aquarius New Moon, in late January, on the 28th. That may seem ages from now, but what you learn about others, circumstances and your own priorities will justify the patience required.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Pisces

Pisces

February 18 – March 19

The changes currently causing such chaos wouldn’t upset you were it not for the fact you’re struggling to make crucial decisions about your own life, plans and priorities. Although the resulting disarray is making things more complicated, the questions changes are forcing you to ask aren’t just informative, you’re re thinking priorities you’ve regarded as unchanging. Now they are. Some changes are long overdue, others unexpectedly dramatic.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aries

Aries

March 20 – April 18

Ordinarily, as an Aries, you’re the first to respond to exciting ideas or offers and, equally, to explore opportunities. Yet with your ruler Mars in the most strategic portion of your chart until late January, it’s time to wait, watch and, even more rethink your priorities. This begins when you’re forced to question whether certain seemingly exciting developments really are in your best interests.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Taurus

Taurus

April 19 – May 19

There’s discussion of thrilling developments but with so much else going on, around you and in others’ lives, you’re wary of trusting these. Yet you’ll probably benefit most from the current powerful and positive planetary setup. The trick is to explore everything, gather facts and show you’re interested, but to make no promises until you know more. With things moving swiftly, changes and revisions are inevitable.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Gemini

Gemini

May 20 – June 19

You’re superbly equipped to deal with this unsettled but exciting week. It’s just that with your ruler Mercury retrograde, errors could worry you or, importantly, others.

But soon, they, too, will be enthusiastic.

Cancer

June 20 – July 21

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Leo

Leo

July 22 – August 21

It’s not that you’re a control freak as much as you’re wary when others are in a position to make decisions about your daily life, work or situations involving certain obligations.

You’ll be surprised and delighted what you learn and discover.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Virgo

Virgo

August 22 – September 21

While certain events bring an end to an extremely  challenging cycle, others are almost a dream come true.

While they may not be prefect, you’re urged to take them seriously. These are as rare as they are astonishing.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Sagittarius Libra

Libra

September 22 – October 21

Welcome developments are sudden but, also, the result of your efforts, so no surprise. Then there are the events triggered by the potent link between your ruler Venus and fortunate Jupiter. They have the potential to eliminate past problems or kick-start a wonderful new cycle. If there’s any challenge, it’s that things are moving so swiftly, and you must say an immediate and unconditional yes.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Scorpio

Scorpio

October 22 – November 20

Bizarrely, you sometimes worry about good fortune, especially if it’s of the remarkable variety coming your way now. Things may be moving swiftly and, true, you’re short of details.

The only issue is that the fast pace, which means you’ve little time for reflection and none for debate.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Sagittarius

Sagittarius

November 21 – December 20

Sagittarians have a reputation for being lucky but even you are likely to be amazed by the nature and extent of the fortunate events currently reshaping your life.

Risky as saying yes to everything would be under ordinary circumstances, it’s rare opportunities are this good.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Capricorn

Capricorn

December 21 – January 19

Although you prefer to organize plans beforehand, you’re also brilliant at dealing with the variety of unexpected events that are coming your way this week.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aquarius

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

For ages you’ve been working diligently at certain plans or ventures that offer both personal rewards and, equally, some variety of practical or financial compensation as well. Others have laughed at you, if not questioned your sanity, but you’ve persisted. Now the events triggered by stunning aspects to your ruler Uranus indicate these won’t just come good, they’ll be so spectacular you’ll have the last laugh.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Pisces

Pisces

February 19 – March 19

Exciting as the events swirling around you are, and as beneficial as they’ll be to others, they’ll have little impact on your own plans or ventures. That is partly because you’ve been in your own world and ignoring the somewhat more mainstream ideas. There’s still time to get involved. Do so, while maintaining your own interests and, within weeks, it will be clear you can, indeed, have it all.

Although many of the past weeks’ changes are no surprise, a few were as sudden as they were unsettling. However, things are already falling into place.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Gemini

Gemini

May 20 – June 20

While there’s no avoiding the unexpected errors typical of your ruler Mercury’s retrograde cycle, which ends on the 8th, these can lead to exciting discoveries. This is especially the case now.

Leo

Making decisions, even very tricky ones, is no problem for you. However, between unsettled situations and a lack of solid facts, you’re unsure what to do. The answer is: wait and watch.

Libra

September 22 – October 22

Those discussions and what comes to light could lead to a serious reassessment of your vision for the future.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Scorpio

Scorpio

October 23 – November 21

For weeks you’ve been wrestling with crucial but complex decisions but every time you’ve devised a plan, changes in circumstances demanded you rethink things.

When Mercury’s retrograde cycle began on 19 December, you noticed the typical errors, dealt with most and, bizarrely, found many unexpectedly informative.

Take it slowly and what you learn will be helpful now, and even more, as the future unfolds.

That will enable you to rethink arrangements, possibly more than once.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aquarius

Aquarius

January 19 – February 17

You don’t think of yourself as being independent until situations in which decisions that should be yours to make arise. You’re facing several such matters, large and small. And you’re struggling with several. While in some, the issue is who’s in charge, in most the fact is, while these have to do with you’re your life, work or various responsibilities, they’re in the hands of others.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Pisces

Pisces

February 18 – March 19

If there’s a single message for you from the current planetary setup, it’s to speak your mind, about your life, the decisions you’re making and any issues that involve others. But, just as much, you’re encouraged to be frank about both your feelings about certain individuals and your views regarding their activities. Initially this might worry you but you’ll soon realize this frankness is crucial.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aries

Aries

March 20 – April 18

Ordinarily, as an Aries, you’re the first to respond to exciting ideas or offers and, equally, to explore opportunities. Yet with your ruler Mars in the most strategic portion of your chart until late January, it’s time to wait, watch and, even more rethink your priorities. This begins when you’re forced to question whether certain seemingly exciting developments really are in your best interests.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Taurus

Taurus

April 19 – May 19

There’s discussion of thrilling developments but with so much else going on, around you and in others’ lives, you’re wary of trusting these. Yet you’ll probably benefit most from the current powerful and positive planetary setup.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Gemini

Gemini

May 20 – June 19

You’re superbly equipped to deal with this unsettled but exciting week. It’s just that with your ruler Mercury retrograde, errors could worry you or, importantly, others.

But soon, they, too, will be enthusiastic.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Cancer

Cancer

June 20 – July 21

For ages you’ve been aware that elements of your own life and, as a result, arrangements with others would have to change. Now you’re witnessing events that will ease the way.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Leo

Leo

July 22 – August 21

It’s not that you’re a control freak as much as you’re wary when others are in a position to make decisions about your daily life, work or situations involving certain obligations. However, it’s clear changes are necessary and those in charge are both knowledgeable and have your best interests at heart. Explore even what seems unappealing. You’ll be surprised and delighted what you learn and discover.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Virgo

Virgo

August 22 – September 21

While certain events bring an end to an extremely  challenging cycle, others are almost a dream come true. Yet with your ruler Mercury retrograde, the accompanying errors could worry you and, worse, make you wonder if there are unseen flaws in these seemingly amazing developments. While they may not be prefect, you’re urged to take them seriously. These are as rare as they are astonishing.

Libra

September 22 – October 21

Welcome developments are sudden but, also, the result of your efforts, so no surprise. Then there are the events triggered by the potent link between your ruler Venus and fortunate Jupiter. They have the potential to eliminate past problems or kick-start a wonderful new cycle. If there’s any challenge, it’s that things are moving so swiftly, and you must say an immediate and unconditional yes.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Scorpio

Scorpio

October 22 – November 20

Bizarrely, you sometimes worry about good fortune, especially if it’s of the remarkable variety coming your way now. Things may be moving swiftly and, true, you’re short of details. Yet, despite that, your instincts are telling you these are as good as they seem, if not better. The only issue is that the fast pace, which means you’ve little time for reflection and none for debate.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Sagittarius

Sagittarius

November 21 – December 20

Sagittarians have a reputation for being lucky but even you are likely to be amazed by the nature and extent of the fortunate events currently reshaping your life. Still, judging by the current fabulous aspect to your ruler Jupiter, these are just as good as they seem. Risky as saying yes to everything would be under ordinary circumstances, it’s rare opportunities are this good.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Capricorn

Capricorn

December 21 – January 19

Although you prefer to organize plans beforehand, you’re also brilliant at dealing with the variety of unexpected events that are coming your way this week. Some involve changes in existing arrangements, others, developments so new you’re unsure what to think about them. Actually, that’s perfect timing, since Thursday’s Capricorn New Moon offers a much needed fresh perspective on several elements of your life anyway.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aquarius

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

For ages you’ve been working diligently at certain plans or ventures that offer both personal rewards and, equally, some variety of practical or financial compensation as well. Others have laughed at you, if not questioned your sanity, but you’ve persisted. Now the events triggered by stunning aspects to your ruler Uranus indicate these won’t just come good, they’ll be so spectacular you’ll have the last laugh.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Pisces

Pisces

February 19 – March 19

Exciting as the events swirling around you are, and as beneficial as they’ll be to others, they’ll have little impact on your own plans or ventures. That is partly because you’ve been in your own world and ignoring the somewhat more mainstream ideas. There’s still time to get involved. Do so, while maintaining your own interests and, within weeks, it will be clear you can, indeed, have it all.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aries

Aries

March 20 – April 18

One of your strengths is your decisiveness and, even more, your capacity to stick to a goal until it’s been achieved. However, your ruler Mars’s move into the most strategic part of your chart triggers a six-week cycle during which you’re forced to go with the flow. If, initially, this seems weak, you’ll soon realize just how valuable the insights and lessons coming your way are.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Taurus

Taurus

April 19 – May 19

It may seem that, recently, you’ve been pushed around by an unfair destiny. Peculiar as many proposed changes in various elements of your life have seemed, few will become reality. Rather, each has been about broadening your horizons so that, when you actually do need to commit to those changes, instead of grumbling about the unfamiliar, you’ll recognize its potential and say an enthusiastic yes.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Gemini

Gemini

May 20 – June 19

Between the recent Gemini Full Moon, which shook things up emotionally, and your ruler Mercury retrograde from the 19th, life is by no means dull. Although shakeups are unavoidable, they’re encouraging you to say farewell to habits, arrangements or even goals that are holding you back, although it may not seem so. Let them go and suddenly an exciting range of new options will appear.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Cancer

Cancer

June 20 – July 21

Final as the decisions you’re making seem, they’re actually part of a pattern of exploration in several areas of your life.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Leo

Leo

July 22 – August 21

Being a fire sign, you think and move swiftly. Now, however, you’re urged to take your time, even in seemingly straightforward practical matters. Between Mercury retrograde, from Monday, and late December’s thrilling if unsettling planetary activity, even the simplest of plans will change, possibly often. Knowing that, take a chance. Ideas or arrangements that, only recently, seemed well beyond your reach could soon become reality.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Virgo

Virgo

August 22 – September 21

As a sensible Virgo, you know change isn’t just necessary, it’s an essential way of breaking up routine. Yet you’ve been battling to keep certain arrangements as they are. While your ruler Mercury’s retrograde cycle, which begins on the 19th, triggers confusion it will also highlight where changes are needed. Move swiftly and, better yet, you’ll be able to take advantage of late December’s stunning planetary activity.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Sagittarius Libra

Libra

September 22 – October 21

The trick to dealing with this week’s events and, in fact, the many twists and turns until the end of the year is to forget about planning ahead. Instead, discuss and deal with only what you can do each day. That achieved, shift your focus to what and who you enjoy. That prepares you for the next day’s decisions and, even more, the unexpected twists they bring.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Scorpio

Scorpio

October 22 – November 20

While you’re not exactly thrilled about the changes currently being discussed, you’ve plenty of time to ask questions and reflect on your feelings about letting go of certain longstanding elements of your life. These may be familiar but, as you’re well aware, some are holding you back and others have become predictable, if not dull. Soon you’ll be making those changes, and with unanticipated enthusiasm.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Sagittarius

Sagittarius

November 21 – December 20

As much as you enjoy discussing new ideas and potential changes, you’re oddly resistant to making them. However, judging by the powerful planetary activity which involves both your ruler Jupiter and Saturn, which is positioned in Sagittarius, between now and the end of the year, those changes are as exciting as they are inevitable. Knowing that, go with the flow. You won’t regret it.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Capricorn

Capricorn

December 21 – January 19

Letting go of familiar and often reassuring elements of the past isn’t easy when you’re unsure what’s next. Still, between the rare and amazing planetary activity involving the fortunate Jupiter, your ruler Saturn and Uranus, next week, and the breakthroughs triggered by the Capricorn New Moon on the 29th, miracles are possible. All you need is the patience to allow the promised extraordinary events to unfold.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aquarius

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

You don’t think of yourself as a control freak. Yet as much as you enjoy discussing potential changes, if they involve ideas so new you don’t fully understand them, it’s another matter. While you can’t halt the cycle of change being triggered by alliances involving Jupiter, Saturn and your ruler Uranus, you can adopt an inquisitive approach that allows you to explore without actually committing.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Pisces

Pisces

February 19 – March 19

In the two years since Mars was last in Pisces, you and the world around you have changed. While its move into your sign, on the 19th, brings the urgency and decisiveness the planet’s known for, you’ve plenty of time to review existing arrangements and explore your options. By late January, when it departs, you’ll have made lots of decisions, many as unanticipated as they are thrilling.

YOUR WEEKLY HOROSCOPE:
WEEK OF DECEMBER 12

Leos need to be firm in passionate situations, and Aquarius should try to plan ahead for late December.  Read on for more of what the week has in store, from Diane’s astrologer Shelley von Strunckel.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aries

Aries

March 20 – April 18

Standing up for what and who you believe in may be a virtue. But between you being short of facts and certain situations being in flux, you’re urged to remain by the sidelines and ask a lot of questions. This is out of character and could seem weak until, probably midweek, when crucial information about these arrangements or the individuals involved surface. These change your thinking and future plans, possibly overnight.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Taurus

Taurus

April 19 – May 19

Obviously life is easier if you can make a single plan for the present and the future, as it unfolds. But judging by the exciting, if unsettling, planetary activity between now and early in the new year, even simple arrangements should be regarded as a bit of an experiment. That way, if things don’t work, instead of having regrets, you’ll learn from experience and merrily try something else.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Gemini

Gemini

May 20 – June 19

Yet again you’re facing situations in which, while you’re happily exploring intriguing options, and learning day by day, others want facts. And right away. Since refusing their demands could rouse conflicts, compromise. Gather enough information to make the individuals in question happy, yet continue to consider various ideas, as you have been. Ironically, what you learn could provide exactly the insights you’ve been seeking.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Cancer

Cancer

June 20 – July 21

Tempting as it is to try to find a way around certain unappealing or, possibly, challenging situations, you’re urged to tackle them. And the sooner, the better. Unlikely as it seems, what you learn from these will help overcome persistent doubts or equip you for now and, even more, for exciting developments in the future. Once you’re actually involved, you’ll wonder why you hesitated at all.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Leo

Leo

July 22 – August 21

While you can be tough about life’s practicalities, situations you’re passionate about or those who you’re linked to emotionally are another matter. Yet events are forcing you to be firm. This won’t be easy but it’s essential, for you and the situation in question. Ironically, what you learn will provide information or insights that will prove hugely valuable when thrilling but unexpected developments arise later this month.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Virgo

Virgo

August 22 – September 21

With your knack for spotting what others don’t, sudden developments or changes in people’s plans rarely surprise you. Yet between this week’s unexpected events and your ruler Mercury retrograde from the 19th until early in the new year, even you are in for surprises. Worrying as that sounds, what’s least expected could prove to be a breakthrough, although in ways you’d never have anticipated.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Sagittarius Libra

Libra

September 22 – October 21

Duty to family and loved ones and, equally, to work, all come naturally to you. But, still, the past weeks have been so demanding that you’ll be relieved to learn the recent move by your ruler Venus, to accent love and life’s pleasures, will allow you to make up for lost time. While this will be a relief, certain of those tricky obligations won’t entirely vanish.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Scorpio

Scorpio

October 22 – November 20

When you decided to keep certain facts to yourself, as you’ve done both in the recent past and ages ago, they didn’t matter. Now they do, and in some cases, big time. Yet you’re reluctant to raise these without adequate preparation. With things moving swiftly, now and even more so prior to the new year, you’re urged to discuss these and any other unspoken facts openly, and soon.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Sagittarius

Sagittarius

November 21 – December 20

Those with good intentions or self-appointed experts aggravate you. Yet the Sun’s encounter with the tough Saturn, in Sagittarius, indicates that you’ll either have to take advice or, as you’d prefer to do, be guided by personal experience. Ironically, this particular lesson is as much about learning to seek knowledge when you’re short of facts, as whether or not you do as others say you should.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Capricorn

Capricorn

December 21 – January 19

One of your greatest strengths is your capacity to acknowledge situations or, equally, individuals for what they are, good and bad. Yet what you’re currently facing is as surprising as, often, it’s extreme. While some of what you learn is thrilling, other insights require considerable thought. In every case, however, this is but one week in a series that is about changes as dramatic as, ultimately, they’ll be beneficial.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Aquarius

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

True, planning ahead is a virtue. Still, you couldn’t possibly anticipate the amazing developments, in your life or your world, promised by powerful aspects to your ruler Uranus in late December. Knowing that, try to regard what you do and plan this week as a bit of an experiment. That means venturing into unfamiliar territory but, also, being open to, and ready for, thrilling changes.

Zodiac_Graphic_Composite Pisces

Pisces

February 19 – March 19

Even the most practical of Pisceans has a strong intuitive side. Whatever your nature, you long ago learnt that, when relying on those instincts, you’ll need an explanation for those individuals who’ll want practical details. Ironically, when gathering that information, you realize just how dramatic this transition is and, therefore, that’s it’s utterly unpredictable by those conventional methods, although you may not tell them that.

WEEK OF DECEMBER 5

Scorpios should expect lots of shakeups, and Sagittarius should hold off on making any major life decisions until mid-month.  Read on for more of what the week has in store, from Diane’s astrologer Shelley von Strunckel.

Aries

Aries

March 20 – April 18

Only days ago you were annoyed that others were in charge of decisions that really are yours to make. Yet now you’re not only thankful, you’re impressed by their knowledge and grateful they’re tackling complex issues you’d rather not bother with. They’ll deal with what they can, but certain matters need your attention. These seem dull but once you’re involved, you’ll realize how crucial they are.

Taurus

Taurus

April 19 – May 19

Informative as what you’ve discussed, learnt about and done during the past weeks has been, certain remaining decisions are pressing. Yet the world around you is unsettled and so are your priorities. The trick is to make those decisions, but ensure they’re easily changed and, equally, inform the individuals in question they’re likely. Since they’re also facing uncertainties, they’ll be relieved you’re thinking in flexible terms.

Gemini

Gemini

May 20 – June 19

Being inquisitive, you’re the first to spot new trends but, also, you’re always considering new approaches to existing arrangements. Still, between now and early January, even you will struggle with changes, some unsettling but as many holding great promise. First, however, it’s about dealing with the heightened feelings and potential changes triggered by mid-December’s Gemini Full Moon. After that, everything else will be much clearer.

Cancer

Cancer

June 20 – July 21

It would be easy to misinterpret recent disappointing news as an indication things could go wrong. Actually, these insights, about both situations and, equally, certain individuals will prove vital when you must make crucial decisions. However, that won’t be until the Cancer Full Moon, in mid-January, so both what you learn and unexpected events now, are about broadening your horizons, personally, professionally and, possibly, romantically.

Leo

Leo

July 22 – August 21

You’re not a control freak. However, you are unhappy that so many decisions are in the hands of others or, possibly, up to destiny. Yet between now and mid-month, this is exactly what you’re facing. Ironically, once you’ve accepted that, you’ll realize what, and who, you’re encountering is as exciting as it is unexpected, if not unfamiliar. This realization changes everything and, overnight, you’ll be exploring enthusiastically.

Virgo

Virgo

August 22 – September 21

Difficult as it is for you to admit, certain once-prized activities or alliances aren’t as exciting as they once were. While you’re hoping your plans to revive these will work, you’re doubtful. Instead trust instincts that remarkable developments are coming, events as unexpected as they are exciting. While they’ll remain unclear until later this month, what and who they introduce promises, at minimum, to be life-changing.

Libra

Libra

September 22 – October 21

Although the period since your ruler Venus moved to accent the structure of your life, in mid-November, has been constructive, you need a break. While you’ve a few details left, aim to have them dealt with by the 7th, when Venus shifts its focus to something far more congenial, love and life’s pleasures. Bizarrely, slowing your pace to enjoy this could be unexpectedly difficult.

Scorpio

Scorpio

October 22 – November 20

From a certain perspective, it may well seem events and, to some extent, your life is lurching from one extreme to another. This is something no Scorpio enjoys yet, deep down, you sense these shakeups are forcing you to view increasingly stuck situations from a new, and more flexible, viewpoint. That being the case, explore these and, indeed, everything that comes your way. The results will amaze you.

Sagittarus

Sagittarius

November 21 – December 20

For ages you’ve known changes in your personal, practical and relationship life were needed, but you were unsure where to begin. The recent Sagittarius New Moon kick-started this process. While this continues, bear in mind it’s unlikely you’ll need to make lasting decisions until mid-month. This is good timing because between now and then, the odds are good your thinking and priorities will shift considerably.

Capricorn

Capricorn

December 21 – January 19

Because you prefer to know about even tricky obstacles, you’ll welcome the revelations that accompany the Sun’s links with your ruler Saturn and inventive Uranus. However, you’ll be strangely unsure what to do next. The answer is: nothing. Ironically, the less you do now, the better prepared you’ll be for the spectacular planetary activity at the year’s close and the equally spectacular events that result.

Aquarius

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

Since early November you’ve been successfully tackling a range of tricky situations. While some have defeated you in the past, others are more recent. Only a few remain and, happily, the move by charming Venus into Aquarius, on the 7th, should enable you to put these last few to rest. For now, focus on simply achieving an accord. Practical issues and future plans can wait.

Pisces

Pisces

February 19 – March 19

Initially, you viewed recent obstacles as a nuisance, nothing more. Now, however, you realize they’re forcing you to raise, define and discuss issues you’ve been reluctant even to acknowledge. The freedom you feel as a result of bringing these up will be amazing. But even better, and completely unexpected, will be the discussions, ideas and offers that follow; they’ll be nothing short of miraculous.

Gemini should hold off on making any major decisions, while Pisces may have to dish out some tough love. Read on for more of what the week has in store, from Diane’s astrologer Shelley von Strunckel.

Aries

Aries

March 20 – April 18

Few things aggravate you more than those who are able to concentrate on only one thing at a time. While you have no choice about that, in the meanwhile, you can busy yourself with other matters. Several need attention, and some are long overdue. The problem is, of course, they’re dull enough you’ve been hoping they’d vanish. Instead, tackle them now and they will, indeed, soon be history.

Taurus

Taurus

April 19 – May 19

Despite your best efforts to eliminate obstacles in complex plans and tensions with the individuals involved in these or similar matters, you’ve achieved little. Instead, plunge in. Once you’re in the midst, you’ll realize how much there is to learn, discover and discuss. This won’t just be a welcome surprise, those insights could answer numerous persistent questions about these situations but, even more, the people involved.

Gemini

Gemini

May 20 – June 19

Although, realistically, your life can’t come to a halt between now and mid-December’s pivotal Gemini Full Moon, you’re urged to leave crucial decisions until then. What you learn about both the circumstances you’re dealing with and, even more, certain individuals whose integrity you question, will influence your priorities and what, ultimately, you decide, both about your short term arrangements and plans for the long run.

Cancer

Cancer

June 20 – July 21

Those closest in your personal, practical or working life are facing serious dilemmas. Listen to their complaints but avoid either giving them advice or, crucially, lending them a hand. The situations they’re dealing with are more complex than you realize. Besides, several dull but vital matters of your own need attention, and soon. Tackle these now. It’ll be the perfect excuse to sidestep others’ dramas.

Leo

Leo

July 22 – August 21

It’s the rare Leo who’s by nature suspicious. Yet you’ve probably already spotted the worrying behavior of one particular individual or, possibly, organization. Judging by the coming week’s planetary activity, which indicates problems of this variety, this is wise. True, it could involve others or even your own carelessness in important matters. Whatever form they take, the more alert you are, the more swiftly these will be remedied.

Virgo

Virgo

August 22 – September 21

Changes in even stable elements of your life don’t worry you. Rather, you regard them as a chance to streamline arrangements and rethink plans. However, what’s arisen now is so sudden that you’ll need to take action first and organize things later. Unsettling as this seems initially, things will work so brilliantly that you’ll begin to wonder if your usual painstaking thoroughness is actually that important.

Libra

Libra

September 22 – October 21

As a Libra, you’re admired for your tact and ability to turn the most impossible of situations into a civilized discussion. Yet now some situations demand you be abrupt, and in a way that will surprise, if not shock, others. It is, in fact, the only way of dealing with certain individuals, who will do exactly what they please until you draw the line.

Scorpio

Scorpio

October 22 – November 20

Once you realize this tricky week will require a combination of intuition and logic, you’ll be confident about both what to tell others and, equally, what to do. The most important thing, for now, is to avoid explaining your reasoning, mainly because it will devour your time and others are unlikely to understand anyway. Besides, as a Scorpio, you’re an expert at being mysterious.

Sagittarus

Sagittarius

November 21 – December 20

Although, as a quick-thinking fire sign, you’ve been well equipped to contend with the past weeks’ twists and turns, the current slower pace will be a relief. This is fantastic timing, since you’re in a period that’s all about considering what works, what doesn’t and, especially, what could go. After those recent challenges, there’ll be no question about what needs to be dealt with.

Capricorn

Capricorn

December 21 – January 19

You’re undoubtedly struggling to figure why some arrangements went smoothly while others that seemed similar only got worse. The issue isn’t what you said or did but, rather, that in most cases you were short of facts. Since that’s still the case, do and say the minimum. Watch, look and listen, and when those facts surface, you’ll be better informed and ready to make your move.

Aquarius

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

While your easygoing Aquarius nature is renowned, you’ve an edgy side. This may shock some, but it’s really the only way to deal with certain unruly situations and undisciplined individuals. These are nothing new. They’ve been building up for ages, but you’d hoped for the best. Express your disappointment frankly. State your expectations clearly, then stand back and watch, while others make up for lost time.

Pisces

Pisces

February 19 – March 19

Your capacity to have faith in others, even when you’ve been repeatedly disappointed by those individuals, is a gift. Yet now you need to link that hope for the best with what’s often referred to as ‘tough love’. This means you must state your demands with unarguable clarity, then walk away, with the expectation the individuals in question will do as you demand. And without negotiation.

Life-changing breakthroughs are in store for Sagittarius, while Pisces may have to give up on long-cherished goals. Read on for more of what the week has in store, from Diane’s astrologer Shelley von Strunckel.

Aries

Aries

March 20 – April 18

Pointless rules or heavy-handed regulations always irritate you. Yet you’re facing exactly that or, possibly, the issue’s vital information has been deliberately concealed. Of course, it could be you who’s keeping something crucial under wraps. Whatever the case, and there could be several such situations, the more swiftly these matters are discussed frankly, the better. It will take little time and eliminate future confusion.

Taurus

Taurus

April 19 – May 19

The recent Taurus Full Moon brought issues regarding longstanding but increasingly unworkable arrangements to a head, all while highlighting the importance of certain people and alliances. But changes worry you. It would be unwise to hope things can, or will, return to the way they were. The solution? Explore new and seemingly unwelcome ideas or offers. You’ll soon realize they’re far more promising than you imagined.

Gemini

Gemini

May 20 – June 19

Tempting as it is to battle infuriating rules or the equally frustrating lack of flexibility of certain individuals, you won’t win. At least now. Obviously, you hate being told what to do. Still, go with the flow. You’ll soon recognize what you’re learning. Better yet, this is preparing you for the exciting, if unexpected, events ideas and offers triggered by mid-December’s pivotal Gemini Full Moon.

Cancer

Cancer

June 20 – July 21

Of course, creating and maintaining a balance between life’s joys and those you care about most, and various duties and obligations is an ongoing challenge. Although the events triggered by the recent Full Moon further clarified your priorities, you’re now facing non-negotiable situations. While some are understandable, others seem unfair. For now, accept these as they are. While you’ll untangle that confusion, it will take time.

Leo

Leo

July 22 – August 21

Few Leos are suspicious by nature. Yet tricky planetary activity involving the often secretive Pluto could trigger doubts about arrangements or individuals you’ve long trusted. Either there have been misunderstandings or undetected errors. Don’t brood on this and, equally, resist the temptation to seek answers on your own. Unlikely as it seems now, only once you’re talking things over frankly will the solution emerge.

Virgo

Virgo

August 22 – September 21

You’re in a period of both review and exploration, of your personal life and your activities out in the world. Recognize that, and you’ll stop worrying about unmade decisions and instead focus on spotting what isn’t working or has outlived its time. Equally, investigate intriguing ideas. Still, decisions should wait until after the powerful, if unexpected, insights triggered by the New Moon, on the 29th.

Libra

Libra

September 22 – October 21

The secret to dealing with this tricky week is to say and do the minimum, and instead wait and watch. Urgent as crises or seemingly disastrous revelations appear to be, within hours they’ll be replaced by another drama. And it, too, will pass. In the meantime, focus on tidying up your domestic or family matters, via quiet discussions or by organizing plans for long overdue changes.

Scorpio

Scorpio

October 22 – November 20

Obviously, initially you won’t be thrilled by events that force you to reveal facts, or feelings, you’ve regarded as strictly personal. However, the resulting discussions will prove hugely profitable. Similarly, circumstances are forcing you to go along with decisions you regard as unwise. Still, in every case, the results will be stunning. Thus, the week’s biggest challenge could be admitting to yourself how wrong you were.

Sagittarus

Sagittarius

November 21 – December 20

Defining who’s responsible for what can be tedious, so much that, when making plans, you’ll often sidestep such discussions and hope for the best. Now, however, the mix of surprise offers and unexpected revelations you’re facing requires serious questioning and thorough investigation. This may be hard work. It’s worth it. It’s preparing you for the life-changing breakthroughs triggered by accompany the Sagittarius New Moon, on the 29th.

Capricorn

Capricorn

December 21 – January 19

Watching arrangements or future plans you worked hard to organize come undone isn’t fun. However, certain once-stable situations in the world around you are in flux, so this is no surprise. Tempting as it is to seek a quick fix, you’re better off exploring the doors these often unexpected changes open. True, some would involve a steep learning curve. But you’ve always rather enjoyed a challenge.

Aquarius

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

The problem isn’t chaotic situations. They’re disruptive but you’ve long known these would have to change, and big time. It’s that, as a result of those changes, you’ll need to rethink elements of your own life you’re pretending are perfect as they are. Yet, deep down, you’re longing for something that will challenge your restless mind. It’s arrived, although not remotely in the form you’d expected.

Pisces

Pisces

February 19 – March 19

Disappointing as revelations about certain cherished arrangements, alliances or plans may be, they’re not much of a surprise. It’s just now events are demanding you respond, which could mean confronting others or, alternatively, giving up on certain long cherished goals of your own. This won’t be easy. Still, bizarrely, once you muster the courage to do so, opportunities will appear in the most exciting, and unexpected, of ways.

YOUR WEEKLY HOROSCOPE:
WEEK OF NOVEMBER 14

Capricorns should expect the unexpected, unspoken issues come to a head for Cancer, and it’s time for Leos to let go.  Read on for more of what’s to come this week, courtesy of Diane’s personal astrologer Shelley von Strunckel.

Aries

Aries

March 20 – April 18

While you’re by no means a control freak, with your ruler Mars just having moved to accent teamwork, you realize either others are better informed than you are or decisions must be made jointly with them. Once you overcome any initial frustrations, you’ll enjoy what you’re discovering, and not just facts but what you’re learning from the generous attitude of the certain individuals, as well.

Taurus

Taurus

April 19 – May 19

Every Full Moon brings situations to a head and heightens feelings, but because tomorrow’s is in Taurus, you’ve already been wrestling with the resulting tides of emotions for several days. While unsettling, they’re also both informative and encouraging conversations about tricky issues you generally do all you can to pretend aren’t there. Discussing these, frankly and openly, will be both informative and a huge relief.

Gemini

Gemini

May 20 – June 19

Looking back on the past three weeks, which were dull but productive, you’re realizing how much you both dealt with and learnt. But now that your ruler Mercury has shifted its focus to close alliances, personal and work-related, you’ll be relieved you no longer need to think about these matters. While things remain unsettled, at least you’re able to relax with those whose company lifts your spirits.

Cancer

Cancer

June 20 – July 21

For ages you’ve been concerned about unspoken issues involving family, loved ones or close friends but haven’t known what to say. The events triggered by Monday’s Full Moon bring matters to a head. Still, it’s up to you to raise these. Others are aware and also concerned, so will be receptive. For now, simply mentioning the issues may be enough. Solutions can be sought later.

Leo

Leo

July 22 – August 21

It won’t be until you’re actually watching plans you organized coming undone that you’ll realize how much ego and, possibly, heart you put into them. Still, while these once made sense, times have changed and so have your own objectives. Yet your emotional links are powerful. If you can’t let go now, simply consider it. Next week’s exciting, and unexpected, developments, will make it much easier.

Virgo

Virgo

August 22 – September 21

The idea of rearranging elements of your domestic or working life is nothing new, but you’ve been unclear exactly what to do, or when. With your ruler Mercury, the Sun and, on the 29th, the New Moon all accenting these matters, those ideas will soon become action, but not right away. Knowing that, explore any suggestions or offers, conscious they’re but a first step, no more.

Libra

Libra

September 22 – October 21

You’ve been rehearsing tricky discussions in your mind for so long you know exactly what you’ll say. Yet when circumstances arise, your words and others’ responses will be entirely unexpected. Forget about sticking with your script and speak from your heart, even if the setting is business or friends. Talk about what matters to you. The response will be as warm as it is unexpected.

Scorpio

Scorpio

October 22 – November 20

While there’s no denying the pressure to make both personal and practical decisions, you’re uncertain of your own feelings and, equally, sense the actual circumstances in question will change before too long. Judging by the planetary activity during November’s final week, that’s true. So make plans but regard them as tentative and ensure others know that. You might even work with them on the final version.

Sagittarus

Sagittarius

November 21 – December 20

Frustrating as being unable to address certain matters frankly may be, in retrospect you’ll be relieved you were prevented from saying more. While you can’t entirely avoid decision-making, ideally those that are crucial will wait until you’re benefiting from the insights that accompany the Sagittarius New Moon on 29 November. Until then? Consider both new pursuits and activities that have lost their luster and could go.

Capricorn

Capricorn

December 21 – January 19

You may dislike making tentative plans, but it’s really the only way to approach the period between now and the powerful clash, on the 24th, between the fortunate Jupiter and Pluto, which is in Capricorn. This brings past ideas and offers, plus sudden changes, together in a series of promising, if disruptive, events. While there may have been hints of these, there’s much more yet to come.

Aquarius

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

Watching both longstanding arrangements and newer ideas that seemed promising come undone is no fun. Yet your observations have told you the foundations on which these, and several other plans, are based are shaky. Knowing that, instead of shoring these up, explore other options. You’ve had some in mind but others that will appear now and over the coming weeks. They could just be perfect.

Pisces

Pisces

February 19 – March 19

In early November you carefully, and tactfully, got a group together with the objective of turning exciting ideas into lasting plans. While, at the time, things went well, this week’s events could seem worrying. Actually, they’re all about editing out elements that could cause problems now or in the future. The more diligently you deal with these, the more likely it is those plans will survive.

YOUR WEEKLY HOROSCOPE:
WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7

An amazing offer is looming for Taurus, while it’s time to face the change for Capricorn. Read on for more of what’s to come this week, courtesy of Diane’s personal astrologer Shelley von Strunckel.


AriesAries

March 20 – April 18
When looking back on the period since your ruler Mars moved into the conscientious Capricorn and to accent your work, various practical matters or duties, you’ll realize how much you’ve achieved. True, it wasn’t always fun and, often, required extreme patience. Tackle those one or two remaining tasks, ideally before Wednesday, when Mars’ shift into Aquarius picks up the pace and considerably broadens your focus.

Taurus

Taurus

April 19 – May 19
Obviously, you’d had hints amazing ideas or offers are looming. But because those triggered by the superb link between your ruler Venus and the innovative Uranus are sudden, you’ll have to ask questions as you respond to these rare, if not life-changing, developments. Similarly, you may have to commit while still short of facts. Do it, knowing you can fine tune arrangements as you proceed.

Gemini

Gemini

May 20 – June 19
While those around you are enjoying the bounty of exciting activities in good company, you’re stuck dealing with dull practicalities. Tempting as it is to escape these, you’ve accomplished so much. In fact, several once-overwhelming tasks are nearly done. Aim to finish these before the 12th, when your ruler Mercury’s move to accent exciting people and close alliances shifts your focus, and you’ll have guilt-free fun.

Cancer

Cancer

June 20 – July 21
With the Sun, Mercury and the coming Full Moon, on the 14th, all accenting who and what lifts your spirits, life’s good yet you’re struggling with certain unrewarding situations. Trust instincts that say not to force issues. Instead, focus on minor tensions and persistent irritations. While you’ll resolve some swiftly, others will reveal deeper issues. Once they’re defined, you’ll find them surprisingly easy to deal with.

Leo

Leo

July 22 – August 21
Your feelings about both loved ones and certain activities may be passionate. Recently, however, there’s been too much drama. While you’ve achieved a lot, you need a break. You’ll get it but probably not until the Full Moon, on the 14th, brings feelings and situations to a head. Besides, several matters remain to be discussed and decided before you can say farewell to this cycle.

Virgo

Virgo

August 22 – September 21
As much as you adore family and loved ones, certain individuals have been driving you crazy. Still, until pressing joint issues are dealt with, you can’t escape. What’s more, getting things done requires careful psychological maneuvering and saintly patience. Regard this as an investment, one that be rewarded. The turning point is mid-month. Stick with it now, and you won’t need to revisit these matters later.

Libra

Libra

September 22 – October 21
Delighted as you are about the amazing events currently enriching the lives of close friends or family, you can’t help but be envious. Equally, appealing developments are coming your way, but probably not until mid-month. Until then, make a point of dealing with and finishing rather tedious practical or financial matters you’d been hoping could wait. They can’t. Besides, what you learn will prove hugely valuable.

Scorpio

Scorpio

October 22 – November 20
Usually, planning ahead is wise. Now, however, it’s impossible and could, as you’ll recognize by midweek, complicate matters. You may already sense powerful changes are on their way, but because they won’t be clear until late November, when links to your ruler Pluto bring these to a head, ensure both arrangements and your thinking are flexible enough to take advantage of what arises then.

Sagittarus

Sagittarius

November 21 – December 20
In late October, both the Sun and Mercury moved into the most strategic potion of your chart. Since then, you’ve either had to play it cool or, possibly, keep your thoughts on even crucial matters to yourself. While annoying, you’ll deal with certain persistent issues, personal and otherwise, once and for all. This clears the way for the coming week’s exciting changes, ideas and offers.

Capricorn

Capricorn

December 21 – January 19
Once you understand this week’s all about change, in the world around you and in your own life, you’ll carefully observe events, then decide how best to respond to each, one by one. But not everybody will be quite so on top of things, which means you may need to reassure others that even seemingly unsettling developments could turn out to be in their best interests.

Aquarius

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18
You’re ending a long, sometimes frustrating but ultimately informative cycle and, with the move by dynamic Mars into Aquarius on Wednesday, beginning a far more dynamic one. You’ll have numerous decisions to make, but will soon become aware that many of those discussions and situations that, over the past month or so, seemed most aggravating, if not just plain impossible, are now providing valuable insights.

Pisces

Pisces

February 19 – March 19
Agreeing to plans when you know you’re either missing important details or that certain facts aren’t accurate isn’t your style. Yet not only do you have no choice, it’s clear arrangements will change, and change again, before anything is settled for good. This is useful, because you can still explore various intriguing options. Knowing that, proceed, ensuring everybody else recognizes what’s being discussed is a work in progress.

WEEK OF OCTOBER 24

Change is coming for Scorpio, while Pisces will need to change their priorities. Read on for more of what’s to come this week, courtesy of Diane’s personal astrologer Shelley von Strunckel.

Aries

March 20 – April 18
Tempting as it is to ignore serious but avoidable obstacles in the hope somebody else will tackle them, you’d soon regret it. Not only are others less courageous than you are, they could easily focus on their interests and ignore yours. What’s more, there are crucial facts of which you’re unaware. While these will surface when they’re being dealt with, only you will recognize their importance.

Taurus

April 19 – May 19
It may seem that you’re the only one making plans, then witnessing them unravelling before your eyes. But every sign is facing similarly frustrating situations. Knowing that, join together to make arrangements that will get things done but are flexible enough to ride out the unsettled period between now and early November. Bizarrely, the unexpected developments you welcome least now could, ultimately, turn out to be brilliant.
Gemini

May 20 – June 19
Several tedious but important work or practical matters have been on your mind for ages, something has always prevented you tackling them. Now it appears others are getting impatient, enough they’re saying they’ll handle these themselves. While the individuals in question seem willing and competent, you’re correct in worrying they’re not as well informed as they say. deal with these now. You’ll be glad you did.
Cancer

June 20 – July 21
Obviously, tricky issues involving both interests and individuals dear to your heart need to be resolved. However, these can’t be rushed. You, personally, are short of facts but also, the actual situations in question are far too unsettled to address now. Bide your time until the New Moon, on the 30th, which brings a timely fresh perspective. By then, your own feelings will be clearer.
Leo

July 22 – August 21
It’s rare that you’re short of ideas or enthusiasm. But you’ve run out of energy. Not only would you benefit from taking a break, this would lead to a timely review of certain increasingly tricky situations. This isn’t about analysis but, rather, quiet reflection. Combine that with time spent in examining practicalities, and by early November you’ll resurface, reinvigorated and with a clear plan for the future.
Virgo

August 22 – September 21
Every once in a while you’re forcibly reminded that not everybody thinks things through with the thoroughness you do. This is just such a week. Add to that the generally changeable mood, and even simple plans should be regarded as tentative, including yours. That may mean arrangements are less precise than you’d like. But it also means you’ll easily maneuver around unexpected changes and surprise developments.
Libra

September 22 – October 21
Joint arrangements need to be dealt with. For ages you’ve attempted to persuade certain independent-minded individuals they’re pressing. But they don’t seem to care. Clearly and politely inform them you’ll deal with those matters on their behalf. Then do exactly that. That will eliminate worries for you and, should the individuals in question eventually decide to get involved, you can inform them it’s too late.
Scorpio

October 22 – November 20
If you find yourself uncharacteristically unsure about both decisions in the here and now and for the future, that’s no surprise. Ideally, in fact, between now and the Scorpio New Moon, on 30 October, with its accompanying fresh perspective, you’ll keep plans flexible. In the meanwhile, focus on what needs to change and, even more, those arrangements that have outlived their time and must go.
Sagittarius

November 21 – December 20
You don’t think of pride as being your downfall. Usually, it isn’t. However, you’re unwisely confident about your capacity to deal with several complex situations. In some, you’re unable to obtain crucial information. But in at least one, the situation in question requires a variety of diplomacy and restraint you regard as dishonest. Leave this to those who’re actually enjoy such manuevers and busy yourself elsewhere.
Capricorn

December 21 – January 19
Usually, when making places, you’ll have thought things through, and will have alternatives ready, should unexpected developments arise. But you’re in unfamiliar territory have no idea what to do. You’re urged to seek guidance, if not turn things over to those who’re better equipped to deal with these matters. If this dents your ego, won’t last. In fact, you’ll soon realize how wise you were.
Aquarius

January 20 – February 18
While life would be easier if certain differences were settled, the issues behind these are more complex than you realize. Impose solutions on others, and these will only need a rethink. Wait until the final days of October, and its accompanying powerful planetary activity and you’ll deal with these matters once, and in a way that’s both lasting and, as important, that others are happy about.
Pisces

February 19 – March 19
Being told you’re about to be disillusioned may not sound like good news. But you already suspect there are problems with certain once-solid arrangements, and you’re about to learn exactly what’s wrong. Tempting as it is to remedy these right away, wait and, importantly, do some research. What you learn could alter your thinking and, possibly, your priorities which, in turn, means rethinking those plans.
