Aries (March 20 – April 19)

As a quick-thinking and fast-moving Aries, you often get more done in a day than others do in a week. At the moment, however, a series of tricky situations and difficult individuals are complicating matters. For now, wait and watch. Even the most challenging of those situations could resolve themselves overnight.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

One of your gifts — as a Taurus, and also being ruled by the charming Venus — is that you can persuade others to go along with plans that, only recently, they rejected firmly. Bear in mind, however, that with the actual circumstances changing swiftly, those recent arrangements are likely to change as well.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

The last thing you’re in the mood to do is debate the rights and wrongs of the lifestyle of others versus yours. However, the individual in question not only regards this as being of importance, but enjoys lengthy chats about it. Politely but firmly change the subject, and the sooner you do it, the better.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

As an intuitive water sign, you’re often more aware of the ups and downs others are experiencing than they are themselves. And, often, you’ll have a clear sense of the origin of those feelings. While you have a knack for encouraging practical discussions, for now, say nothing. Talking things over would only cause more confusion.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You were born with a zest for life, and because of that, you have a talent for making even everyday matters seem exciting, if not very special indeed. Now, however, it’s the reverse, and you have no choice but to take over certain arrangements others are struggling with. Be bold. They’ll be thankful for your efforts.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Many Virgos have two lists of things “to do”. The first is made up of tasks and obligations. The second, however, focuses on those activities and, especially, challenges you have long intended to get involved in, but have always put off. Now their time has come. Plunge in. The sooner, the better.

Your horoscope for the whole of February

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

While there are times when you are in a difficult mood or exasperated with the temperamental up and downs of others, at the moment you really are on edge. For now, back off and reflect on the source of these feelings. Once those are clear, everything else will make sense.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Although the actual Full Moon isn’t for a few days yet, you’re experiencing the restlessness that’s part of this cycle. For now, do no more than simply notice those feelings. Discuss them with others, but make no commitments just yet. Those will come later, when your options are clearer.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

As a Sagittarius, you are one of the restless fire signs. While you try to ensure your everyday life is organised, you thrive on variety and enjoy broadening your horizons. That’s exactly what’s happening now. Explore for the sheer joy of it. What you learn and who you encounter will lead to thrilling ideas.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Every New Moon is about a fresh perspective. So it’s no surprise you’re still thinking about and musing over the ideas triggered by the Capricorn New Moon, on January 11. True, it was ages ago. Still, what arose and who you met continue to add to your life now and, it seems, will in the future.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 17)

For ages you have sensed there was something amiss with plans you expected to go smoothly, but couldn’t figure out what the problem was. Now you know. You were short of facts. Get somebody who enjoys dealing with such details involved, and you should have no problem. In fact, things will go amazingly smoothly.

Pisces (February 18 – March 19)

While many Pisceans acknowledge they have a strong intuitive nature, discussing it openly with others is another matter. Take things slowly. Describe when you’re aware of those feelings and how long they last. And be patient. Gradually, this will become a rewarding, and extended, exchange of ideas.

If it's your birthday tomorrow...

The time has come to “spoil yourself”. While that term is used frequently, usually its focus is on being out and about, and having a good time. In this case, however, it’s actually about the reverse. It’s about feeling you have the right to say a firm “no” to those who are pushy, demanding or whose company you dislike. The solution? Be busy. Eventually they’ll get the point. And you’ll have time to spend with those who matter.
