Today's birthday: Some discussions are merely conversations about plans, and they may concern obstacles or new ideas. Yet, the encounter between your ruler Mercury and Venus in your birthday chart suggests that it’s worth focusing on your hopes in the present and dreams for the future. Some could involve others, and you may find inspiration from certain people. Whatever the case, your life will be richer for these exchanges.

Virgo: August 22-September 21

Planning ahead may be a virtue and give you the impression that you’re in control. However, life’s about exploration, change and discovery. If you must make arrangements, ensure they’re flexible.

Libra: September 22-October 21 

For weeks you’ve kept certain potentially crucial facts to yourself while others couldn’t cope with them. Circumstances aren’t much calmer now, but you’re confident others are ready to handle these matters.

Scorpio: October 22-November 20 

You usually have a knack for figuring out obstacles. Now you’re urged to confront difficulties and ask questions. What you learn could prevent them becoming troublesome later.

Sagittarius: November 21-December 20 

You could easily be overwhelmed by the coming weeks’ twists and turns. With Jupiter moving into a new sign late next week, you can expect all sorts of surprises.

Capricorn: December 21-January 19

Having been cornered into tasks that aren’t exactly thrilling, you’re trying to escape them. But these and several other unappealing situations are introducing you to ideas that will prove to be fortunate.

Aquarius: January 20-February 18 

You have questions about several unresolved matters. It would be no surprise if the events triggered by September’s eclipses, on the 1st and 16th, bring these to light.

Pisces: February 19-March 19

There is a likelihood of misunderstanding. But it can expose issues so complex that they’ll require considerable time and patience on your part.

Aries: March 20-April 18

A few days ago, events may have seemed unfair. Since then you’ve realised they were forcing you to venture into new, rewarding territory. The more you explore, the more you’ll benefit.

Taurus: April 19-May 19

If there was a time to be forthright about what you’d like to achieve, it’s now. Those thoughts, ideas and dreams could become reality, possibly overnight.

Gemini: May 20-June 19

You won’t always be able to spot how you’ll benefit from events. Knowing that, explore everything, dismiss nothing and, most importantly, ignore those who insist you must be cautious.

Cancer: June 20-July 21

The trick to dealing with the current eclipsed new moon is to forget about planning. Rather than considering what might go or what’s next, keep an open mind.

Leo: July 22-August 21

While there’s a focus on financial matters, you’ll be devoting just as much attention to whether you’re using your ideas, time and even your emotions wisely.
