A charm offensive for Cancer and a Full Moon in Capricorn—it’s that time again. Read on for astrologer Shelley von Strunckel’s take on what this week holds for you!
March 20 – April 18
Just when you thought persistent problems couldn’t be overcome, sudden ideas or changes in circumstances clear the way for plans to proceed. While they’re not as you intended, things have moved on since then. That being the case, you’ll want to review existing arrangements and even unchanging priorities. This proves surprisingly informative and, better yet, discussions lead to exciting new ideas involving others, too.
April 19 – May 19
The past weeks’ events have been as exciting as they’ve been unsettling. Now that you’re discussing plans, present and future, you’ll also need to rethink certain longstanding arrangements. Unsettling as this seems, with your ruler Venus, Mercury and, on the 22nd, the Sun all moving to accent a new approach, the more options your explore now, the happier you’ll be with the outcome.
May 20 – June 19
After an exciting, but chaotic, couple of weeks the pace slows, enough you’re able to consider where things stand now and future plans. You soon discover these need to be rethought. However, with so much still in transition, your focus should be discussion, not firm arrangements for what’s next. Besides, once you begin, you’ll realize you must rethink your priorities, personally and in close alliances.
June 20 – July 21
With the Sun, charming Venus and Mercury all in Cancer, you’re at your most persuasive. Yet you’re still unsure about certain changes and questioning future goals. Clear-cut decisions aren’t necessary. What’s most important is that you discuss both existing plans and where things should go next. While often others’ ideas will differ from yours, the resulting conversations will clarify your thinking and, ultimately, your plans.
July 22 – August 21
Recent discussions were complex and, on occasion, triggered confrontations. While these tensions won’t vanish, at least you can now talk things over without those conversations turning into dramas. Bear in mind, however, that nothing’s settled. Rather, with the actual circumstances in question changing, often suddenly, there’s little point in trying to organize plans. If you must, regard what you arrange as tentative.
August 22 – September 21
While you might have a right to blame recent dramas on others’ poor planning, nobody could have anticipated recent twists and turns in events. So although your feelings of wariness are justified, you’ll want to focus on teamwork. This means encouraging others to make suggestions and ensures you maintain crucial alliances, personal and professional. Better yet, everybody will benefit from the resulting analysis and exchange of ideas.
September 22 – October 21
Looking back on the past week, you faced complex situations. In some, even simple plans didn’t last long but, despite that, you had to deal with others’ differences. Happily, things are calmer, so you can relax a bit. Still, certain individuals are determined to have things their way. This isn’t your problem. Back off. If you’re not careful, you’ll end up playing the role of peacemaker.
October 22 – November 20
Having struggled to achieve an accord in already tense arrangements, when they start coming undone you won’t be pleased. Yet with so much in transition, around you and in your own life, such changes are inevitable. Regard what’s arranged as one of a series of plans, and when you need to rethink things, you’ll regard it as yet another step towards achieving something lasting.
November 21 – December 20
When the remarkable events triggered by late June’s powerful link between your ruler Jupiter and Pluto took place, you set about turning them into lasting plans. However, things weren’t as simple as they seemed, and you’re still wrestling with unexpected developments and a few uncooperative individuals. Tempting as it is to deal with these swiftly, aim to do it once, and in depth, and those arrangements will endure.
December 21 – January 19
Certain of the situations you’re dealing with may be complex, but for you as a thorough Capricorn, they’re no problem. However, while other arrangements are far simpler, issues are strangely upsetting. These involve emotional matters and are being triggered by the Full Moon in your sign. Although this isn’t until the 19th, the time has come to face and, where possible, discuss these matters in depth.
January 20 – February 18
As obstructive as certain individuals and the obstacles you’re facing seem, each is slowing your pace and, in the process, preventing you from making arrangements you’d later regret. Deep down you sense the truth of this. It’s just you’re determined to see certain plans through. While that’s admirable, both circumstances and your life have changed. The vision you had for the future must change, too.
February 19 – March 19
Eliminating your idealistic Piscean nature isn’t possible. Instead, for now, you’re urged to adopt an uncharacteristically cynical perspective. That way, during this complex period, you won’t be shocked when certain individuals are uncooperative or, worse, actually cause problems. You’ve long known they were like this. Accepting it enables you to take the upper hand when contending with their antics, as you soon will have to.
