21 APRIL – 21 MAY
Enforcing rules or boundaries may not be easy. But it has to be done if you and certain other people are to proﬁt from arrangements that have been difﬁcult to discuss and put in place. Trust the fact that the other people involved value your input and that they are not judging you for being too controlling.
22 DECEMBER - 20 JANUARY
Willing though you may be to pitch in as a part of some kind of group endeavour, you won’t want to do all the heavy lifting. And as Mars confronts Jupiter, you might defend your position too vociferously. Remember you’re dealing with people who are likely to play a part in your long-term future.
22 MAY – 21 JUNE
Refuse to do battle over every little detail of a controversial set-up. Instead, focus on the broad brushstrokes and be prepared to give minor concessions just to placate the other person involved. You’re only a few steps, not a million miles, from an outcome that should bring about almost everything you’ve been hoping for.
21 JANUARY - 19 FEBRUARY
Having been rather tight-lipped about developments likely to affect friends and family as well as yourself, you must realise it is time to reveal all. Choose your moment carefully as one particular individual could accuse you of having a hidden agenda because you’ve been so secretive. Keep your cool and just state the facts.
22 JUNE – 23 JULY
Not everything you have to say to a certain group of people will go down well. But you should be able to rely on the sage advice of a loved one or friend telling you to stand your ground. Mercury’s tussle with power-packed Pluto will bring grievances to the surface. They will have to be addressed.
24 AUGUST – 23 SEPTEMBER
Faraway shores beckon but you must do some fancy footwork to avoid losing the chance to raise your profile. You seem to feel you’ve missed out in the past. When considering travel plans, take into account any event that requires you to be in the right place at the right time so that you can make the progress you crave.
24 OCTOBER – 22 NOVEMBER
You’ll be aware of the value of successful networking with some difficult individuals. But not everyone who is meant to be on your side will see things your way. If you cannot use your soft skills to talk them round to your way of thinking, try throwing your weight around a little more than usual. The results will surprise you.
20 FEBRUARY – 20 MARCH
Progress you’ve made in the wider world may slow down or possibly even come to a halt. But the hold-up won’t last forever and you can use any downtime to go over facts, figures and procedures which must be spot on if you’re to win glittering prizes. It’s a time for caution: One slip-up or careless oversight could set you back.
24 JULY – 23 AUGUST
Be prepared to put your head above the parapet while colleagues or peers remain as risk-averse as ever. You obviously shouldn’t do anything reckless but you’re about to become aware of some influential people watching you closely. You’re right in assuming that they would be more impressed with daring.
24 SEPTEMBER – 23 OCTOBER
In a bid to promote somebody’s health and wellbeing you may be prepared to pull out all the stops. Be aware of a Sun-Neptune link that might make you think that a solution will be at hand as long as you throw money at the problem. Careful planning, expertise and determination are the vital ingredients you need.
23 NOVEMBER – 21 DECEMBER
Put everything you’ve got into lengthy talks with those who have a similar work ethic and philosophical stance to your own. By contributing as much as you can to the various stages involved, you should eventually achieve all your shared goals. Spending time and effort will improve your chances.
21 MARCH – 20 APRIL
Advisers suggesting you slam on the brakes when arguing about work or money-related matters have a valid point. So let a Sun-Saturn connection encourage you to take into account potential pitfalls, rather than focus entirely on your hopes and wishes. When it comes to negotiations, opt to be cautious and discerning.
