At DVF we believe in designing your own destiny… and it never hurts to have a clue about what’s headed your way! That’s why we’re sharing weekly horoscopes courtesy of Diane’s astrologer, Shelley von Strunckel. Scroll through to learn what’s written in the stars for you.
March 20 – April 18
If you know what you want, you’ll rarely put off decisions. Yet with so much unsettled, changes have undermined your efforts to make certain exciting arrangements. Although things are still in flux, you’re urged to settle on, and commit to, plans within the next few days. After that the actual opportunities involved are likely to change, possibly overnight. It’s a matter of now or never.
April 19 – May 19
The ideas planet Mercury, which is in Taurus, ends its retrograde cycle today, and with it, this period of confusion you’ve been facing ends. However, you’ll find you’re unable to answer many of the questions it’s triggered right away. Give yourself the gift of time, both to reflect on these and explore your options. That way, once you make decisions, you’ll be sure they’re wise ones.
May 20 – June 19
Now that the Sun and, as of Tuesday, the planet of money and relationship, Venus are in Gemini, life is likely to become far more agreeable. Of as much significance is the fact your ruler Mercury ends its retrograde cycle today, although the confusion it triggers could last for a few days yet. Still, gradually life will become easier and you’ll be more contented.
June 20 – July 21
It’s not that you mind making changes. It’s that the matters in question involve your work or various obligations and could influence those closest, personally or professionally, as well. Consequently, you’ve been uncertain what’s best. Still, the recent Full Moon brought feelings, both yours and those of others, to a head. That will trigger frank discussions, which make it clear exactly what needs to be done.
July 22 – August 21
Having faced numerous twists and turns, in circumstances and both your priorities and those of others, at long last you’re nearing decisions. Consequently, you’ll be relieved that Mercury’s retrograde cycle ends today. Still, since the confusion typical of this period won’t vanish overnight, ensure that both your decisions and plans are flexible. This is handy, as it gives you time to explore your options.
August 22 – September 21
While the period during which Mercury is retrograde has a reputation for triggering troublesome confusion, in your case it’s spurred you to meet interesting people and explore new ideas and intriguing places. Now that it’s no longer in reverse motion, you should be able to turn what you’ve learnt over the past weeks into plans, and in some cases, arrangements of a more lasting nature.
September 22 – October 21
Although you’ve achieved a great deal over the past month or so, especially regarding business or financial matters, it hasn’t exactly been fun. Yet with both the Sun and your ruler Venus departing this portion of your chart to accent new people, ideas and places, suddenly the focus shifts to broadening your horizons. While you’ll still be facing numerous practicalities, they’ll be far less burdensome.
October 22 – November 20
In early March the forthright Mars departed Scorpio and moved to accent practical, business and financial matters. You’ve achieved a great deal on that front but still have several more to deal with. Tackle them now, ideally before Mars returns to your sign on Friday, beginning a review of your past decisions and an intense cycle during which you’ll be making plans for the future.
November 21 – December 20
As a fire sign you think and act swiftly. The more you do in any one day, the better. This allows little time for reflection and still less for doubts or unsettling feelings. Yet the recent Sagittarius Full Moon not only accented them, you’re talking them over with others. Don’t rush through these conversations. The time you invest in discussions could lead to life-changing insights.
December 21 – January 19
Those individuals who plunge into arrangements without much thought amaze you. Being involved with them is another matter, as is the case now. It’s either that or existing plans of your own are being unceremoniously rearranged. Annoying and, possibly, worrying as these changes seem, they’re an invitation to consider new options, ones that were you not forced to explore them, you’d have rejected without a thought.
January 20 – February 18
This may be one of the most unsettling and, possibly, worrying weeks of the year’s first half. However, when you look back on it, you’ll realize what caused you the greatest concern actually turned out to be breakthroughs, although in completely unexpected forms. Knowing that, make a point of exploring absolutely everything, including those ideas or offers that you regard as being of absolutely no interest.
February 19 – March 19
Tempting as it is to brush off discussions about potential changes in elements of your domestic or working life, at least talk over what’s arisen. True, this would throw your existing, and carefully crafted, arrangements into chaos. Yet you’ve long sensed a major rethink was in order. This is it, and once it’s begun, you’ll be amazed, and delighted, how much you enjoy the process.
