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