Astrologer Shelley von Strunckel reveals what’s in the stars for you today
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY
The line between the inspiring ideas that are one of your greatest assets, as a Gemini, and sheer fantasy is never clear. However, with the Sun challenging Neptune, which is about thinking outside of the box, in your birthday chart, defining what’s workable and what isn’t is a central theme. What’s more, this is about seeking the line between what is highly imaginative yet possible versus those ideas that thrill you but which, as much as you dislike admitting it, are completely unrealistic.
Aries March 20 – April 19
Giving up ground may seem a compromise. But this involves only one element of the situation in question and, even more, will make one particular individual very happy indeed. What’s more, once it’s dealt with, you’ll realise how much effort you were wasting on keeping things as they are.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
If you’ve been looking for a solution for persistent issues, it’s no surprise. Although once these were of little concern, times have changed and so has their importance. Enough that it’s increasingly clear you’ll need to give these serious thought. And, soon, be ready to discuss them frankly.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
Just when you were wondering about and worrying over certain increasingly tricky situations, a breakthrough is in the works. While this, alone, won’t resolve the actual issues in question, you’ll learn a lot. In fact, the resulting exchange of ideas will both be informative and lead to a solution as surprising as it will be worthwhile.
Cancer June 21 – July 21
Letting go of certain longstanding plans or giving up on a dream won’t be easy. However, recently you’ve had to acknowledge these don’t hold the promise they once did. What’s more, in saying farewell to these, you’re creating both the time and space to focus on something new and far more promising.
Leo July 22 – August 22
After weeks of misunderstandings and several stabs at trying to reorganise persistently frustrating arrangements, you’re only now discovering certain individuals are doing their part. Actually, this shouldn’t surprise you. This isn’t the first time. Proceed with your efforts, excluding them. They won’t notice and those efforts will be far more rewarding.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Change is in the air, especially in matters regarding your domestic or working life. While you recognise these are timely if not inevitable, you’re unclear what’s next. With the circumstances in question still shifting, for now consider what you could do without. Those changes will clear the way for what’s next.
Libra September 23 – October 22
Being let down by others is bad enough. However, now events are forcing you to disappoint somebody to whom you’ve made a promise. Forget about struggles to put things right. Instead, explain what’s happened, fully and frankly. By tackling this together, you’ll be able to devise a solution everybody can live with.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Every New Moon is about a fresh perspective. But because next Wednesdays addresses business or financial arrangements, you may already be aware that certain issues need to be examined or discussed. If so, gather your facts, then ensure any conversations are as forthright as possible. Any less, and you could actually make matters worse.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 20
Nobody regards you as stubborn, including you. Yet certain obstacles are bringing out this side of your nature, one which refuses to acknowledge potential changes or new ideas. Bizarrely, you’re unable to see this. However, others can and are pointing this out to you. Pay attention. Their intentions are good and guidance invaluable.
Capricorn December 21 – January 19
While you can’t plan ahead for the unexpected, it’s worth bearing in mind that the Capricorn Full Moon, at the end of the month, promises to bring both existing issues and the changes you’ve been refusing even to discuss to a head. Which means the more you learn now, the better prepared you’ll be.
Aquarius January 20 – February 17
Tempting as it is to put off telling certain individuals news you know will disappoint them, mostly because in the past you’ve been so reassuring, you really have no choice. While there’s a slim chance it will all come good, it’s exactly that, unlikely. You’re better off warning others of the worst, while hoping things will work out.
Pisces February 18 – March 19
Although you don’t give it much thought, you rely on your intuition when it comes to short term decisions and even crucial if not life-changing matters. While, usually, those instincts are accurate, in certain matters they’re worryingly incorrect. Be patient. Within a few days everything will proceed as you anticipate.
