Virgo: August 23-September 22
Today's birthday: Speaking for yourself seems simple, but it’s rather complex right now. You know what you want to convey, but the position of your ruler Mercury in your birthday chart accents the need to assess how your words may be received by others. Also, consider what needs explaining or what might be upsetting. This seems exhausting, but it’s key to worthwhile discussions, however short or long.
Scorpio: October 23-November 21
The recent move by Mars into Scorpio began a cycle that was all about you. Having previously focused almost exclusively on the needs of others, you need to focus on your own.
Capricorn: December 21-January 19
Of the 12 signs, yours perhaps best understands the importance of taking a strategic approach, especially in difficult situations. Now that Mars has moved into the portion of your chart that accents these matters, you must think about what’s best.
Aquarius: January 20-February 17
Loyalty is central to important relationships. Recently, however, certain people haven’t been behaving as they used to. In fact, their attitude seems too casual and uncaring.
Pisces: February 18-March 19
It’s not only disillusioning to watch arrangements come undone, it’s disappointing, especially when you worked so hard to organise them. You thought certain individuals would fight to keep these going, but you were wrong.
Taurus: April 20-May 20
There’s a difference between being honest and being forthright. Addressing your views fully and openly could ruffle a few feathers now, but you’ll avoid misunderstandings later.
Cancer: June 21-July 22
By no means are you secretive, but it may not occur to you right now to mention personal issues and those involving close relationships. They usually don’t matter, but today they do.
Leo: July 23-August 22
You’ve had to devote a great deal of time to certain domestic matters. There was no question about these being a priority, but now that things are more settled, you deserve a break.
