YOUR WEEKLY HOROSCOPE:
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.

YOUR WEEKLY HOROSCOPE:
WEEK OF NOVEMBER 28

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.

YOUR WEEKLY HOROSCOPE:
WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21

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.

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.

DVF_Blog_Thumbs_314px_v1

Expect the unexpected this week. Diane’s astrologer, Shelley von Strunckel, reveals what the stars have in store.

Aries

March 20 – April 18

This won’t be a calm week. During April’s first half, powerful and unsettling aspects to Uranus, which is positioned in your sign, triggered changes, so you’re already reinventing yourself. Today’s Aries Full Moon brings both your own feelings and already unsettling events to a head. While the pace may be swift, even for you, the exciting results will justify the chaos you’re currently facing.

Taurus

April 19 – May 19

If your life’s a bit chaotic, that’s no surprise. Accept you’re in a cycle of change and, instead of battling the unfamiliar, you’ll begin asking questions. Some will have swift answers, but mostly it’s about broadening your horizons via intriguing encounters with others or new activities. While unsettling now, gradually the picture will become clearer until, in mid-November, you’ll recognize how beneficial these changes will be.

Gemini

May 20 – June 19

Watch your words. This is an odd warning for you, as a clever and charming Gemini. But with your ruler Mercury accenting your creative, social and romantic life, yet also forming a series of tricky aspects to most of the planetary heavyweights, even seemingly innocent remarks could lead to problems. While, obviously, you can’t maintain silence, you can think carefully about what you say or promise.

Cancer

June 20 – July 21

There’s been talk of changes in your domestic or working life for ages, but little has come of it. However, between today’s Full Moon and potent planetary activity last week and this, things will begin moving swiftly and, possibly, in an unexpected direction. Overwhelming as this seems at first, begin asking questions and you’ll soon realize these developments are better than anything you’d previously conceived possible.

Leo

July 22 – August 21

It’s not just that unexpected events are irritating, it’s that you’ve virtually no option but to go along with them. Actually, that’s good, as it forces you to venture into new territory and to mix with people who, for various reasons, you’ve been avoiding. Hold back now if you must, but you’ll soon realize why destiny is giving you a push in this direction.

Virgo

August 22 – September 21

Ordinarily, if you’re asked questions for which you’ve no answer, you’d consider it your responsibility to get the facts. Now, bizarrely, you’re encouraged not to bother. With so much in transition, what’s true today won’t be tomorrow or next week. It’s the same for pivotal decisions. Explore your options but keep arrangements tentative until late October, when the information you’ll be getting will be more reliable. 66

Libra

September 22 – October 21

Because today’s Full Moon brings existing issues, both personal and involving close alliances, to a head and triggers unexpected developments, you’ll be considering what works and what doesn’t, not far-reaching plans. The changes kicked up by these developments are unsettling but, deep down, you know they’re timely. If in doubt, discuss these frankly with those who’ll tell you the truth, not what you want to hear.

Scorpio

October 22 – November 20

It’s not that you’ve been dishonest. Rather, in certain situations, you’ve been deliberately unclear, so couldn’t discuss matters frankly, still less, make commitments. Wednesday’s rare link between forthright Mars and your ruler Pluto both exposes the full facts and, equally, feelings you didn’t realise you had and, further, encourages discussions and decision-making involving others. After that, changes come swiftly and with astonishing ease.

Sagittarius

November 21 – December 20

Your carefree nature can be charming, but you’ll often sidestep both pressing practical or financial commitments and, equally, leave those to whom you’ve made promises hanging, sometimes for ages. Now, stunning ideas, offers or events, during October’s second and third weeks force you to take action on them all, past and present. What’s more, you’ll have to move swiftly, especially with those commitments you’ve deftly avoided.

Capricorn

December 21 – January 19

When you neglected to mention a range of tricky situations, you were short of facts or simply weren’t ready to discuss them. Yet Wednesday’s encounter between Mars and Pluto, planet of truth, in Capricorn exposes everything, and to everybody. In some cases, others knew more than you realised but, equally, you experience amazing and unexpected kindness, a timely lesson in being open and trusting.

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

Since early October you’ve been on a wild ride, one that’s been as much about discovery as it’s been about unsettling changes. Hopefully by now you’ve realised that what initially seems disastrous is actually a blessing, if in disguise. Knowing that, explore absolutely every idea or offer, including those that have little to do with you. Or, that’s how it seems now. They soon could.

Pisces

February 19 – March 19

Ignoring the complaints of others is never easy, especially when they’re wrestling with exactly the same variety of unsettling events you’re currently facing. Fortunately, your powerful instincts suggest that chaos is leading to welcome, if still puzzling, breakthroughs. It’s the same for those who’re complaining so loudly about life’s treachery. Instead of sympathizing, suggest they do some exploration themselves. What they learn will revolutionize their thinking.

Your Weekly Horoscope:
Week of October 2

Capricorns should trust their intuition and for Cancer, a cycle of change. 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
Normally you’d focus on overcoming obstacles, large or small, without a thought. However, those you encounter between now and the Aries Full Moon, on 16 October, are about considering where changes are needed and, equally, what could go. There are certain situations where you’ve intended to shed unrewarding alliances, arrangements or habits. Others could be a shock. But in every case, it’s time for a rethink.

Taurus
April 19 – May 19
Suddenly, longstanding elements of your life are coming undone. Worrying as these changes are, deep down you’ve known something needed to give. The tricky part will be a lack of clarity about what’s next. For now, focus on continuing to declutter your life and, equally, your plans. This clears your mind, which means you’ll easily spot and respond to new, and intriguing, ideas and offers.

Gemini
May 20 – June 19
It may seem you’ve been dealing with domestic or family matters, or issues involving a balance between life at home and out in the world, forever. Yet you’re already benefitting from the challenges you’ve faced. Still, a few remain. Tackle these now, before the 7th, when your ruler Mercury’s move into a new position shifts your focus from life’s responsibilities to its pleasures and joys.

Cancer
June 20 – July 21
You’re in a cycle of change. Your awareness that these developments are about much needed growth, and in several areas of your life, means you’ll actually welcome this week’s twists and turns. Still, as a Cancer, and somebody who craves stability, you could be anxious. If so, think about similarly unsettling times in the past. They worked out brilliantly. Ultimately, these will prove amazingly fortunate, too.

Leo
July 22 – August 21
You could battle others’ decisions. But, but deep down, you know they’re undoing arrangements that are familiar yet holding you back. The key is the aspects to Pluto, planet of truth and transformation, by your ruler the Sun, Mercury and Mars, all during October’s first half. The resulting events, and what you learn, help clarify what must go and, more important, what will be your next passion.

Virgo
August 22 – September 21
The exciting, informative but often challenging cycle of review that began in late July comes to an end on the 7th, with your ruler Mercury’s move from Virgo, to accent the practical and financial side of your life. This is timely. Recent changes were equally unsettling. Do a little investigation. Once you begin focusing on their impact, you’ll discover you’ll be much better off.

Libra
September 22 – October 21
Last Wednesday’s encounter between the Sun and Jupiter, planet of growth and good fortune, in Libra, kick-started a year-long cycle of discovery and exciting encounters. While the promise of some will be immediately clear, others could seem uninteresting or even worrying. Still, explore everything, since what seems least appealing now could introduce you to new and wonderful situations or, ultimately, turn into something amazing.

Scorpio
October 22 – November 20
Initially, the obstacles you’re facing will seem random. But gradually you’ll realise they’re all about making changes in your way of living, working or loving that, recently, you’ve refused even to consider. Ironically, they are about breakthroughs in these areas of your life yet, mostly, you’d stubbornly resisted considering even a minor shift. Do so now, or you risk destiny making those changes for you.

Sagittarius
November 21 – December 20
The current planetary setup is about interesting people, fascinating ideas and good times, and it’s custom-designed for you. Basically, your priority is exploration. While you’ll need to make decisions about what, and perhaps, who to pursue and, equally, what to say farewell to, that’s not for some weeks yet. Knowing that, for now, focus on where you can go, and what you learn while there.

Capricorn
December 21 – January 19
Once you understand that, whatever you decide or do, somebody will object, you’ll stop worrying about the opinions of others. This includes those who you admire or whose advice you often seek. While ordinarily they’re reliable, your world is changing and, in fact, growing in ways they simply don’t understand. And decisions? For now, your intuition is far more trustworthy than even the most reliable of facts.

Aquarius
January 20 – February 18
For weeks, if not months, you’ve been shoring up certain longstanding arrangements or alliances. Yet now you’re wondering whether, actually, these need to come to an end. The solution is to back off and see what happens. They might spring back. If so, embrace them. And if not, know their departure is freeing you to explore the amazing ideas and offers that appear, often from nowhere.

Pisces
February 19 – March 19
Every once in a while you wish others could take over handling complex matters or decisions that will, inevitably, upset somebody. Yet now somebody’s doing exactly that, and you’re not happy about it. Things aren’t being handled with the sensitivity you’d employ. Actually, for now, that’s good. This is giving you a chance to invest time and thought in pressing but complex matters of your own.

Your Weekly Horoscope:
Week of September 25

For Aries, it’s a time to be true to yourself and for Gemini, a time of exploration. Read on for more of what’s to come this week, courtesy of Diane’s astrologer Shelley von Strunckel.

Aries
March 20 – April 18
While you often complain everybody leaves decisions up to you, it’s with good reason. You not only think more swiftly than most, you’re willing to takes chances others wouldn’t even think of. Which means there may be objections to some of what you organise. Listen to concerns but stick with your vision of what’s possible. Things will work brilliantly, and soon others will be thanking you.

Taurus
April 19 – May 19
True, with both the Sun and the fortunate Jupiter accenting your daily life or job, wonderful things are promised. But events seem somewhat worrying. In fact, you may be concerned that certain vital arrangements are coming undone. Actually, those changes are timely, and the beginning of a cycle of growth and expansion that will bring benefits within the week, and even more as the months to come unfold.

Gemini
May 20 – June 19
It’s true, now that your ruler Mercury is no longer retrograde, life will be less complicated. However, you’ll be untangling the confusion of the past weeks for some days yet. Ironically, what you learn in the process could highlight ideas or opportunities that, somehow, had previously bypassed you. This is a time of new beginnings. There’s no better moment than now to explore these.

Cancer
June 20 – July 21
For ages you’ve been talking about making changes in elements of your domestic life or activities out in the world, but often you’ve been distracted. Now, suddenly, events sweep you into discussing those changes, but in a form very different than you’d first imagined. That’s good, as with the actual circumstances in question shifting, you’ll go through several versions of plans before you finalise anything.

Leo
July 22 – August 21
One of your greatest virtues isn’t just that you know what you want, but you aim high. While, usually, you achieve those goals, at the moment events seem to be undermining even simple plans. Actually, that’s best. This is forcing you to examine, and update, those ideas and your vision for the future. What once seemed your best option could soon become even more thrilling.

Virgo
August 22 – September 21
Although Mercury is no longer retrograde, the fallout from both errors and unexpected twists mean even simple plans had best be regarded as tentative. Knowing that, adopt an uncharacteristically experimental attitude to each day’s events and the future. The new territory you visit and chances you take now will, at minimum, be informative. But they could lead to something as exciting as it is unfamiliar.

Libra
September 22 – October 21
By no means are you stubborn. Yet you’ve either ignored or refused to explore certain new ideas, mostly because they seemed disruptive, and without the promise of accomplishing much. The issue is they’re new. So much, the best way to learn about them is experience. That is, plunge in. Risky as this seems, once you’re actually involved, you’ll be much more optimistic about it all.

Scorpio
October 22 – November 20
Recent frank discussions were as perplexing as they were informative. What you learnt about both certain situations and, even more, about the attitude of others both explained a lot but raised numerous issues. Instead of retreating to consider these, as you’d usually do, continue those conversations. Better yet, where before you’d have said little, begin asking questions. You’ll be amazed how much fun it is.

Sagittarius
November 21 – December 20
Sooner or later, you’ll have to confront certain increasingly tricky situations involving money, who’s responsible for what or your much-valued freedom. Or it may be a combination of these. While you rarely worry, you’re uneasy. The solution? Instead of thinking things through, talk about your concerns with others now. They’ll be far more understanding and, better yet, far more helpful, than you anticipated.

Capricorn
December 21 – January 19
A combination of tricky situations and practical necessity has prevented you from taking action on exciting and, often, crucial plans. Now that the tide is turning, and you’re in a position to proceed you’re anxious. The solution isn’t analysis. It’s to do something out of character and plunge in, your intention being to let experience be your teacher. You’ll be amazed how much you learn.

Aquarius
January 20 – February 18
While you’re incredibly inquisitive, and love to know what’s going on in the world and the lives of others, actually plunging into unfamiliar situations is another matter. Yet the current powerful planetary focus on broadening your horizons indicates it’s time to do exactly that. For now, do no more than explore. There’s plenty of time and lots to discover. Knowing that, decisions can, and should, wait.

Pisces
February 19 – March 19
Few things are more disillusioning than discovering those you thought understood your vision are suddenly challenging your plans. You sometimes forget that not everybody shares your faith in what’s possible, and certain individuals insist on guarantees. Tempting as it is to sidestep the resulting discussions and, possibly, investigations, you’re urged to get involved. They won’t just be unexpectedly informative, they could offer further inspiration.

Your Weekly Horoscope:
Week of September 18

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.

Aries
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.

Taurus
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.

Gemini
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.

Cancer
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.

Leo
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.

Virgo
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.

Libra
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.

Scorpio
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.

Sagittarius
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.

Capricorn
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.

Aquarius
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.

Pisces
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.

About Last Night:
Celebrating Spring 17

Editors, friends and fashion week fixtures joined Diane last night as she fêted new Chief Creative Officer Jonathan Saunders and his first collection for DVF, a modern reimagining of print and color that debuted over the weekend in a series of intimate appointments at a bright white space on Little West 12th Street.

Karlie Kloss, Jessica Hart, Leandra Medine, Miroslova Duma, Hamish Bowles, and Allison Williams—who looked ravishing in a pale blue sundress from the Spring 17 collection—exchanged the requisite air kisses in the newly revamped Beatrice Inn.

As the crowd sipped champagne and house Negronis, Jonathan, Diane and CEO Paolo Riva celebrated the momentous weekend; one that marks a clear and promising direction for the future of DVF.

“It’s not just a collection, it’s a concept,” said Diane von Furstenberg, who has officially passed the creative reins to her worthy successor, “and I couldn’t be happier.”
