Libras should keep their plans flexible, while Pisces should expect dramatic change. Read on for more of what the week has in store, from Diane’s astrologer Shelley von Strunckel.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
