21 APRIL – 21 MAY
Before committing to group activities, you must scrutinise the details, especially if money is being spent. One or two of those involved may have rather grand ideas on what is possible and achievable. You don’t want to go any further only to find that much of the thinking and planning is pie in the sky.
22 MAY – 21 JUNE
Without becoming irresponsible, you’ll feel inspired to re-evaluate your work or finances and make changes. Not everyone will agree, so be ready to defend your actions and have evidence at hand to prove your point. Aspects of your life must be recharged and a Venus-Neptune clash means nobody should dissuade you from doing what’s right.
22 JUNE – 23 JULY
Refuse point blank to allow the negative opinions of others to steer you away from a set-up that holds great appeal. True, you may feel more gung-ho than usual, but that is no indication that you’ll be acting recklessly, so pay them no heed. Your need for a little bit of excitement is to be celebrated, not shot down in flames.
24 JULY – 23 AUGUST
Disputes with a loved one or close associate need not result in a rift. You must, however, own your part of the proceedings rather than insist that you’re blameless. Iron out the wrinkles within this relationship immediately because there’s much to look forward to and you don’t want it to be marred by a cold war.
24 AUGUST – 23 SEPTEMBER
Although you’d normally discuss worldly affairs with someone close, you’ll be tempted to keep a current problem to yourself. Discussing it openly and honestly will help you realise there’s no need for any shame on your part, and there’s really nothing to fear. Begin the conversation whenever you can.
24 SEPTEMBER – 23 OCTOBER
Having had your hopes raised with regard to a close association, you run the risk of being disappointed if things do not develop as you’d wished. Don’t despair though. Instead, put it down to Saturn entering a retrograde phase, forcing you and the person concerned to manage both of your expectations and stick to reality rather than indulge in a flight of fantasy. Come the 27th, hindsight will o er a positive angle on old issues.
24 OCTOBER – 22 NOVEMBER
Enjoy the sense of relief brought on by meaningful exchanges with people you respect. And perhaps integrate them into your social life in a way you have not previously considered. The discovery that they are far more likely to be allies than rivals will boost your spirits enormously and remind you not to prejudge such situations. Focusing on one set-up or structure will prove a winner.
23 NOVEMBER – 21 DECEMBER
Those urging you to take a pragmatic approach to financial or work-related arrangements aren’t trying to interfere. They’re simply becoming aware that you’re going through an ambitious— perhaps even extravagant—phase, probably as a result of a Jupiter-Sun tie-up. When it’s suggested that you check facts and figures, do just that.
22 DECEMBER – 20 JANUARY Much as you may need to be more self-reflective than usual with regard to relationships, you mustn’t isolate yourself from those who want to be part of your daily life. Yes, you should reassess your position within a group or domestic set-up, but in a positive and optimistic way. The glass is more than half full.
21 JANUARY – 19 FEBRUARY
Friends or loved ones will encourage you to take bold strides regarding developments within the home or family. However, a quiet voice at the back of your mind will tell you to proceed with caution. Let a Sun-Pluto connection help you fnd a middle ground in the best way possible.
20 FEBRUARY – 20 MARCH
Don’t feel guilty for concentrating on your own needs and ambitions, though this isn’t to say you can abrogate your responsibilities to others entirely. You’ve allowed yourself to be distracted from personal goals that, once achieved, should enhance your life considerably. Anyone suggesting that you’re being entirely self-seeking must be put right.
21 MARCH – 20 APRIL
At last, you can bring to fruition a plan or project requiring you to cooperate with certain individuals outside your normal circle of companions. Try not to question their every comment or suggestion purely because you don’t know them very well. It is far better to embrace the variety and difference they’re bringing to the situation. Talking friends through a new scheme will also win you support.
