Unexpected developments might unsettle you. But a Jupiter-Pluto alliance should help you look ahead and see ways in which to capitalise on adjustments made by others. Don’t be afraid of being perceived as opportunistic. You’re merely making the most of a set-up created by those who haven’t yet realised just how clever you are.
Taurus: 21 April - 21 May
You’ve been discouraged from making a breakthrough through your own fears or someone else’s negative comments. But you’re about to become more gung-ho than usual when it comes to trying new and different things. Make sure your new-found confidence doesn’t make a particular individual want to run a mile
Gemini: 22 May - 21 June
Joint financial, business or property matters could take a turn for the better. Even so, you must resist the temptation to involve yourself in a deal that sounds too good to be true—because it probably is. Your challenge will be to determine whose advice to take and which situations should be given a wide berth.
Cancer: 22 June - 23 July
Fundamental changes within an intimate relationship can be pursued, provided you and the other person want similar outcomes. You’re entering a phase in which you’ll have a keen sense of the true value of the moves being debated. Resist the urge to disregard any other viewpoints put forward. Remain flexible.
Initially, it may be hard to see how colleagues or loved ones shifting their power base might affect you. However, you’ll gradually realise that powerful Pluto is encouraging you to take better care of yourself and not be so beholden to somebody who sometimes takes advantage of your good nature.
Virgo: 24 August - 23 September
At last, you’re about to be recognised for skills you possess in a particular area. But you must avoid giving the impression that you feel you’re streets ahead of everybody else. Certain individuals close by will find it hard to cooperate with you if it seems you’re looking down on them. Humility could be the answer.
Libra: 24 September - 23 October
If you can sweet-talk a companion or loved one around to your way of thinking, a venture or journey should live up to expectations. It’s important to acknowledge, though, that at times, you’ll feel like being unusually daring and you shouldn’t become heavy-handed about what you want. Offer reassurance and understanding rather than judgment.
Scorpio: 24 October - 22 November
Someone springing a surprise on you mustn’t disrupt your private or family life. True, Mars is picking a fight with Uranus early in April, but there’s no need to defend yourself heavily against any new ideas likely to impact you. Better to prove how adaptable you can be when you’re suddenly put to the test.
It’s sometimes hard to decide how generous you should be to loved ones. Your fear of being perceived as mean and miserly mustn’t force you to go to extremes. Weigh up what’s appropriate and affordable, and act accordingly. Also, catch up on correspondence that seems mundane but which is about to become vitally important.
Capricorn: 22 December – 20 January
Be ready to mastermind everyday work or projects left unfinished by those who should know better. But don’t sacrifice romantic, creative or exotic plans you’ve had in mind for a while. Let the Sun’s tussle with Pluto and Jupiter bring out that part of you that knows how to work hard but play even harder.
Aquarius: 21 January - 19 February
As you disclose sensitive information to somebody close, you might wonder whether you’re in danger of spreading gossip. But deep down, you know how trustworthy the person really is. If not, keep quiet. Reflect on whether or not something important is missing from the relationship in question.
Pisces: 20 February - 20 March
Invitations or suggestions from a small group of people will, at first, persuade you to join in with whatever they are doing. But soon afterwards, you might begin to wonder whether their plans really suit you. Unless you’re entirely comfortable with whatever they are offering, you should make a decisive but polite exit from proceedings.
