Aries (March 20 – April 19)

Often your tendency as an Aries, and an impatient fire sign, is to take fast action then review the outcome later. However, with things moving so swiftly you won’t have much time to focus on details, still less discuss them with others. Actually, with things moving so swiftly that’s for the best.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Frustrating as recent setbacks in existing arrangements and future plans were, they’ve forced you to rethink your approach. While unsettling (if not annoying) the more you explore your options, the easier things are to deal with. Enough you’re beginning to welcome changes that only recently you’d have refused even to consider.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

As an inquisitive Gemini you’re often the first to spot potential problems in seemingly simple plans and this gets others discussing potential solutions. The trick? Tempting as it is to encourage the individuals in question to think and move swiftly, discuss your options in depth. You’ll soon be glad you did.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

If you’re still reeling from the emotional intensity of the recent Full Moon, it’s no surprise. It accented, and may have led to, disruption involving certain plans you hoped would last. They won’t. But once you learn more about the actual situations you’re dealing with, you’ll be relieved changes are still possible.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

No sign has a more powerful response to events that aren’t just restrictive but unfair. And that’s what you’re facing at the moment. Tempting as it is to go to battle over these, ask a few questions first. What you learn will make you realise you’re short of essential facts.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

The past few weeks may have been exciting, but events prevented you making lasting decisions. Frustrating — if not worrying — as this was then, recently you’ve been relieved these prevented you getting involved in what seemed promising plans. Not only have circumstances changed, so has your thinking about the arrangements in question.

Your horoscope for the whole of February

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Judging by the past week’s tricky planetary activity, you and the rest of the world have faced a series of difficult, if not impossible, situations. Hopefully you’ll have approached these with typical Libra caution — that is, doing the minimum. If so, now that things are clearer you can begin turning your ideas into action.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Now that the Sun has joined your ruler Pluto in the sign of Aquarius, you’re in a period of both change and exploration, often in unexpected directions. While usually you’d think through each option in detail, this is about experimentation. Try everything out. You’ll be amazed how much you learn.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Sometimes obstacles are no more than that, issues or troublesome barriers that need to be dealt with sooner or later. However, those you’re currently facing aren’t just important, once you begin exploring them, you’ll realise they’re opportunities in disguise. However rushed you are, make a point of checking them out.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Judging by the current clash between the fiery Mars and expansive Jupiter, between the current swift pace of events and the impatience of certain individuals, you’ll be cornered into making arrangements swiftly which means ignoring certain pivotal details. Don’t worry. Deal with you can now. The rest can wait until later.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 17)

If you’re into astrology you won’t just be aware that Pluto, the planet of truth and transformation, has moved into Aquarius, it’s there for a lengthy stay. This gives you plenty of time to explore and, better yet, experiment with its influence. That in turn means ensuring your thinking and plans are flexible.

Pisces (February 18 – March 19)

For ages you’ve known that, sooner or later, you’d have to stand up to somebody who isn’t just self-centred, they feel insulted if anybody mentions it. Recently, however, they’ve annoyed so many people that something has to be done. Join together with others then, as a group, address the issue in question frankly.

If it's your birthday tomorrow...

As you’ve probably already noticed, this birthday is about timing and strategy. While as a Piscean you always have hopes things will go according to your plans, you’ve learnt to have at least one or two alternatives ready. You’ll need them but, surprisingly, not because of problems or emergencies. Actually, instead it’s because of welcome if disruptive surprises. The more flexible your plans are, the better.
