Astrologer Shelly von Strunckel reveals what’s in the stars for you today
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY
The time has come to break away from restrictive habits. Being inquisitive by nature, you’re usually better informed than others, which gives the impression your thinking and attitude are flexible, whatever the situation. That’s by no means the case and, according to your birthday chart, you’re about to discover where you’re being rigid, both in terms of existing plans and exploring your options, and where it’s time to break loose, explore and broaden your horizons.
Aries March 20 – April 19
Enthusiastic as you were about certain very intriguing plans, you were hesitant about teaming up with others. You feared they’d waste time investigating minor issues when you could plunge in and
Taurus April 20 – May 20
When you made certain promises to friends or, perhaps, professional commitments, the road ahead seemed clear. Since then, a great deal has changed. Yet you’re determined to stick to those plans. Discuss this with the individuals in question. They’re facing similar changes and would welcome a top to bottom review of those plans.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
Don’t be surprised if, over the next few days, you need to rethink certain arrangements. This is partly because the actual circumstances in question are shifting but, even more, what you’ve been learning and the facts you’ll be encountering will make you realise that, if things were better organised, you’d benefit a lot more.
Cancer June 21 – July 21
Only weeks ago, you were downgrading your expectations about certain once-thrilling plans. These haven’t gone as well as anticipated, so you felt it wise to rethink things. While that was the case then, the tide is about to turn again, and this time it will be in your favour, and it will be lasting.
Leo July 22 – August 22
For ages you’ve intended to commit to one particular plan, goal or even to somebody you care about. But every time you’ve come close to taking things to the next stage, you’ve backed off. The time has come to do it. Once you do, you’ll wonder why you waited for so long.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Yet again, you’ve been reminded that your efforts to achieve certain objectives has meant neglecting those you love and life’s pleasures. Actually, you’ve promised yourself that, when you’ve reached a certain point with those goals, you’ll take a break. But those closest aren’t clairvoyant, so, not surprisingly, assume you’re putting them last.
Libra September 23 – October 22
As a Libra, you regard achieving, and maintaining, harmony as evidence of a life well and wisely lived. However, judging by the current planetary setup, in several situations there’s no choice but to confront others. You could try being more subtle, but it will achieve little. Be forthright. It the best option.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
The line between being discreet and causing confusion isn’t always clear. And it seems you’ve explained so little about a very tricky matter recently that you’ve actually made things worse. Begin at the beginning and explain everything. Others know more than you think and, better yet, you’ll eliminate that confusion with surprising ease.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 20
Being an optimist, when you committed to one particular plan, you ignored the details, thinking you could deal with them later. That time has come. These aren’t just important, the lack of clarity about certain elements of these arrangements is triggering confusion and costing you money, as well. Act swiftly. You won’t regret it.
Capricorn December 21 – January 19
This is one of those strange periods during which seeming setbacks suddenly turn into breakthroughs, if not brilliant opportunities. But, of course, you won’t know that at the time. As a result, you’re urged to explore absolutely everything, including what seems unrealistic. What you learn and who you encounter will amaze you.
Aquarius January 20 – February 17
Don’t be surprised if you feel moody or suddenly find yourself feeling grumpy with one particular individual. It’s a tricky time, and the resulting issues can seem overwhelming. While some will require immediate attention, others aren’t nearly as pressing or, indeed, important as they seem. In fact, you can safely ignore the latter.
Pisces February 18 – March 19
Few things are worse than watching somebody you care about suffering. While, often, you’ll move swiftly to do what you can to alleviate their problems, in this particular case you’re urged to examine the situation from a clear-minded, if not detached, perspective. Once you learn more, you’ll realise that things aren’t what they seem.
