Your week in the stars

Aries: March 21 – April 19

Be prepared to deal with anything as there could be problems on the horizon and you’re ill prepared to cope. Put your smartphone down for a minute and take a look at what’s going on around you. Things may not be as bad as they seem and you’re certainly not short of support from loved ones so concentrate on the positives..

Taurus: April 20 – May 20

Make the most of your opportunities and don’t compromise, but plan every move carefully as the consequences could be far reaching. Make sure you have a backup plan. Try to keep a lid on your temper if a promise isn’t kept. There will be a good reason for it so don’t say or do anything you don’t mean in the fog of anger.

Gemini: May 21 – June 20

Things may not be as they seem so keep your instincts sharp. You might be tempted to break the rules a little. As a difficult year comes to a close, give some thought to what you want out of life and how you intend going about it because things won’t just land in your lap, you have to actually go out and get what you want.

Cancer: June 21 – July 22

Come down from the clouds. There are some important decisions to be made. Try not to take it too personally if some people fail to live up to your expectations. A financial issue may be delayed as you are unable to contact people you need to speak to. That will cause frustration, but don’t waste your concern or time on people who don’t deserve it.

Leo: July 23 – August 22

Some issues you thought had been resolved resurface, but stay calm and be patient. It’s all about making the right choices this week so be flexible. Spend quality time with a partner. At work there may be some challenges so stay alert and think about doing something to fill in some of the gaps in your technical knowledge.

Virgo: August 23 – September 22

Things that have been frustrating you will be resolved. Don’t be afraid to take risks. Leave relationship problems in the past and stop bringing them up. It’s time to move forward, which may involve a small adjustment in your way of thinking. A possible business collaboration may present itself but this is not the time to be telling your boss where to stick his job.

Libra: September 23 – October 22

Your love life comes under the spotlight. Make sure you have a clear view of the situation before deciding on the road ahead. Don’t let negative echoes of your childhood shape today’s dreams. At work, stay true to the plan you have and don’t let anyone talk you into straying from it. Rememmber, sometimes straying from routine can be as good as a rest.

Scorpio: October 23 – November 21

No matter how organised you are, it’s just impossible to fulfil all of your obligations alone. Just deal with one thing at a time. You’re feeling vulnerable at the moment. The demands of daily life are creating a distance between you and a loved one. If you want the relationship t survive you’re going to have to create some time.

Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21

You will need to be quick on your feet as putting things off really isn’t an option this week. The demands of your job will be very tiring so stay organised. The rewards will come, but be realistic about just how much you can do. Your partner may be in conflict with your family so keep the warring factions apart, for now at least.

Capricorn: December 22 – January 19

Stop! Take some time for yourself to think about what you want from life as you’re feeling a little under appreciated for your efforts. Someone from your past with whom you feel there is unfinished business may be about to reappear. Work is very demanding at the moment. Beware of the fine print in any negotiations and don’t buy anything that isn’t returnable.

Aquarius: January 20 – February 18

Issues in your professional and personal life will need to be resolved so stay clear of anything that could add to your problems as you have more than enough to deal with. If you’re single you may as well accept that it’s all your fault, then you can go about fixing it. Otherwise spend quality time with your partner. At work, you can afford to be adventurous by taking direct action to relieve the pressure.

Pisces: February 10 – March 20

Keep doing what you’re doing professionally, but show some flexibility in your relationship as being stubborn will achieve nothing. Fun with youngsters is on the cards, but put something down to protect the carpet from disastrous spills. Be sure to make some time for yourself, even if it’s just chilling out with a book or catching up on your favourite TV series.
