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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
