Your week in the stars

Aries: March 21 – April 19

It’s better to be the tortoise than the hare so don;t rush into things. Take your time and remain cautious to ensure things go well at work. The place for spontaneity is in your personal relationship and you will enjoy some valuable quality time with your partner, which in turn will bolster your self confidence. You may find yourself getting emotional about a family issue.

Taurus: April 20 – May 20

A lack of faith in your own abilities is making you overcompensate by being assertive and demanding at work. These insecurities need to be put to rest if you are to function at your best. On a personal level, be open with your feelings and if someone rocks your world, let them know. However, you may need to exercise some diplomacy of someone enters your circle who drives you up the wall.

Gemini: May 21 – June 20

A bit of a rollercoaster week with lots of ups and downs so you will need to concentrate on the positives and keep your emotions in check. Just getting through the day will be enough. Financial worries are at the front of your mind, preventing you from thinking clearly about anything else, but by the weekend you’ll be in a much better frame of mind.

Cancer: June 21 – July 22

Your energy levels are high and there’s a wild spell coming this week which sees you unencumbered by concerns with authority. But remember, with high spirits come high emotions so be careful you don’t find yourself labelled as frivolous or naïve. Your love life can be positive with the relationship moving forward if you’re not too demanding of your partner.

Leo: July 23 – August 22

There will be some friction with your boss and you’re patience will be severely tested. Relaxing with friends will help to calm you down a bit, but there will be times when your irrational behaviour may begin to cause concern and even conflict with a loved one so exercise some control and forethought. Expressing yourself honestly will smoothe things over.

Virgo: August 23 – September 22

Demands professionally mean you need to be assertive and even more focussed than usual, but despite the urge to get away for some R and R, this will produce good results. However, it has the potential to cause friction at home so try to avoid any conflict in your relationship. By the weekend your mood will lighten.

Libra: September 23 – October 22

No matter how much you like something, too much indulgence can make you feel sick, so don’t go overboard. Self control and discipline is important in achieving your goals, but so is self confidence and at the moment your fear of rejection is threatening to drag you down and hinder your decision making. Your partner is there to support you so don’t close off.

Scorpio: October 23 – November 21

You are in a yin and yang situation with someone. This may be on a personal or a professional level, but whichever it is, besides an element of rivalry, there’s a symbiosis between you that balances things out when you work together to your individual strengths. But to do that you will need to put aside your insecurities, which have a habit of manifesting as irritability.

Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21

Just say what you mean and to hell with the consequences. If someone gets offended, too bad. Some people just don’t understand your sense of humour and they’ll get over it. You’re in no mood for pussyfooting around this week and things will come very easy to you, but don’t let your sharpened senses and decisiveness get out of control.

Capricorn: December 22 – January 19

A fear of failure and rejection will drag you down until you begin to rediscover your sense of fun. A couple of days’ escapism and valuable time with your loved ones will remind you of what is really important and reinvigorate you for when you have to put your serious head back on later in the week. Keep a close eye on your finances.

Aquarius: January 20 – February 18

Your feelings are a bit raw this week so take advantage of any small moments of relaxation you can take to ease the tension. There may be some frustrating moments at work so you will need to stay calm. Sparks are set to fly in your love life which will produce conflicting emotions within you that threaten to completely overtake everything else.

Pisces: February 10 – March 20

Be pragmatic in everything you do as after a trying time for yourself it’s now other people’s problems that are going to weight you down. Remember to give yourself a break because you deserve it. It’s finally time for you to lift your head up out of the depths of depression and begin to take some pleasure from life. It’s long overdue.
