Put yourself in others' shoes this month, star signs

(21 April – 21 May)

Don’t push too hard when trying to persuade friends or workmates that you should put colour and creativity into joint plans. But try to have things signed and sealed by 26 May when Jupiter challenges Saturn. At that point, those involved could become heavy-handed with regard to shared finances or crucial decisions. Keep it simple.


(22 May – 21 June)

Tiffs and tantrums won’t persist if you’re fair and open with someone feeling sensitive. Take the heat off the situation by involving yourself with routine responsibilities and step back from your private life. You’re about to realise how draining being caught up in arguments about issues that don’t matter very much can be.


(22 June – 23 July)

Having wondered whether you’ve neglected someone else’s needs—or possibly your own—you’re about to think very seriously about getting your priorities right. Don’t expect to find an instant answer to this question. Take two to three weeks or so to decide exactly which areas of your life need restructuring. Then act.


(24 July – 23 August)

Take things slowly even though others may insist you finalise something extremely complicated within a tight deadline. You may even have to point out that if you’re expected to perform at your absolute best, you must be left free of any interference or manipulation. If people want near-perfection, they’ll have to wait for it.


(24 August – 23 September)

Travel plans or complicated get-togethers can cause tension unless you know exactly who, or what, you’re dealing with. It’s worth waiting until Mercury’s retrograde phase ends on 22 May before committing to any major financial undertaking. Don’t rush into anything about which there are unanswered questions.


(24 September – 23 October)

Difficult though it may be to interpret the thoughts and feelings of someone special, the mist is clearing. Trust your sixth sense on developments between the two of you. Also identify whatever needs nurturing so that you can enjoy each other’s company to the fullest.


(24 October – 22 November)

Discussions around intimacy shouldn’t be delayed for too long. One particular issue must be settled well before the Sun enters Gemini on 20 May, closely followed by Venus. From then on, you will be expected to play a starring role in a project involving business or property. You will need to have a clear head.


(23 November – 21 December)

Bring unfinished work or projects to a close. You must be left free to focus on developments within your closest relationships—one in particular. You may have given up in a particularly sensitive area but must now tell yourself it’s one that can be improved with some effort by both of you.


(22 December – 20 January)

Tap into an instinct telling you who can and cannot be trusted. And insist that all communications between yourself and friends or loved ones are crystal-clear. Late in May, when Jupiter squares up to Saturn, you must have no doubts about agreeing to a deal or arrangement that should be built on integrity and transparency.


(21 January – 19 February)

Refuse to allow others to obsess about minor domestic issues. Misunderstandings are inevitable but they needn’t cause rifts or necessitate fundamental changes. Your job will be to persuade them that there are some important—and rather valuable—things which are a great deal more worthy of your attention.


(20 February – 20 March)

Partnership problems will ease before long. But you mustn’t assume that all will be well without care and attention from both of you. You’ll be in an adventurous, enquiring frame of mind, so you certainly wouldn’t want relational problems to prevent you from moving into exciting territory associated with work or pleasure.


(21 March – 20 April)

As you reflect on your handling of a work-related matter, you might question your attitude towards someone involved. You mustn’t convince yourself that you have misread factors due to prejudice on your part. So long as you have been your usual fair, dedicated self, you should have nothing to worry about.
