Find out what the stars have in store for you this week...

 Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)  

A little crack in a personal relationship could widen into an impassable chasm if you keep taking the other for granted. If you want to prevent the split widening, you need to declare yourself and soon. A genuine expression of commitment is required; otherwise someone is going to walk out of your life. Do you want to end a relationship that has so much going for it? Partnerships are worth maintaining, but nobody’s asking you to say it with flowers and candlelit dinners. That’s not your style.

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)  

In appearance the Bull is an awesome beast — a master of the herd. However, just because you can lord it over others and inspire fear, you must occasionally ignore the red flag to let others know your stern attitude is just an act. At your best, you inspire, but when you blunder, you do so big time and wreck whole china shops. For this week at least, with Venus and Neptune squaring up to each other, listen to constructive criticism and accept that you’re not always right about everything.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)  

The celestial messenger Mercury links up with dreamy Neptune at a time when you really need to jazz up your ideas. Instead of letting yourself be seen as just a foolish follower of fashion’, you must try to break new ground with a new slogan. Prove your critics wrong by being more careful of the company you keep and the places you frequent. Focus on enhancing your image as a street-wise dynamo, possessed of energy, class and style. It would pay to be seen in the right places with the right sort of people.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22  

The Crab tends to think of others first while putting its own needs at the bottom. Such modest sacrifice is often given precious little thanks. As your ruler, the Moon, makes positive alignments with Neptune, Mars and Uranus, there’s scope for actioning a new idea and awaiting a favourable outcome. On Monday, an offer you might find hard to refuse, could give you the chance to exercise your own individual flair. Seize the chance and do so with a clear conscience. You don’t owe anyone anything!

Leo (July 23 - Aug 22) 

Unsettled cosmic vibes this week could lead to people holding unrealistic expectations and dumping all sorts of problems on your doorstep. You may be called on to give advice on a subject in which you’ve no expertise. You may possess a leader’s interest in the issues that affect your fellows and have the necessary clout to get around red tape. However, you might be too close to act with objectivity. Don’t ignore a genuine cry for help, but make it clear you can’t be meddling. All you can offer is tea and sympathy!

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)  

It’s not usually your province to command — for when you do attempt to assume airs of authority, you frequently give offence. However, people will work with you readily and accept your services because you’re splendidly capable. However, you’re not doomed to work without reward forever. Untiring industry, clear vision and critical acumen will eventually bring a Virgoan to the front. The stars say the point when you give the orders and have others dance to your tune is within touching distance.

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)  

The Libran could be likened to a a Master Chef who needs emotional and mental balance in the kitchen. Someone may be guilty of putting too little in or trying to take too much out, but this doesn’t mean that the finished product won’t be tasty. However, you’re a a bit of a perfectionist. Experience has a trained eye and can usually produce a finished product as well as any slavish following of the cookbook. Don’t be quick to denigrate skill even when it doesn’t come with a diploma attached.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)  

Pluto’s current backward motion is definitely rocking your confidence. The fact that the fault lies with the stars and is not the product of some inherent weakness should make you feel better. Your pessimistic mood and sense of insecurity are making you act unreasonably and you’re taking it out on those close to you. If what you need is a physical demonstration of support, it’s up to you to show some affection first. If you’ve been cold and nasty, don’t expect people to see you as an irresistibly cuddly teddy bear.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)  

The true Sagittarian is a born troubleshooter. His weapons are intuition and hunches, and he’s not often wrong. Your abilities are about to be tested, but never fear. The stars promise to give you 20/20 vision this week to show just how efficient you are at spotting what’s wrong with a current enterprise or relationship and sorting it out. Your timely perception will save the day and force others to look at you in a new light. You’ll find that any private misgivings you have had, concerning your standing with them, were way off the mark. Forget the idea that you’re seen as a dark horse or a rank outsider. You should demonstrate that you’re quick off the mark, on the ball and can run with it.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)   

Thoroughly practical, the goat is adept at putting the world to rights. Despite this no-nonsense approach, one on-going issue is proving problematic and you’ve so far failed to sort things out. You can’t afford to appear indecisive about it, but on the other hand, the stars advise you not to jump before you are ready. Several eyes are better than one pair on such occasions, so make it your business to discuss the business with all the interested parties. Illumination will improve as the matter is looked at from all viewpoints. You’re not blind, but sometimes you can look at things without seeing that the solution is staring you in the face. Stepping back will enable you to take in the whole picture.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)  

Aquarius is generally a breezy optimistic sign, but not always lucky in love. This week, however, you can expect developments on the personal front. A Moon-Uranus conjunction is an alliance that usually augurs a generous portion of joy and satisfaction in matters of the heart. The energy released by this celestial union will provide the impetus to take things to a newer level of intimacy and understanding. However it’s important that you’re prepared to take on the responsibilities entailed. Although you love your freedom, you love the prospect of sharing a caring relationship more. Just remember that love is elusive — a bit like public transport. Even if three turn up at once, the next bus isn’t likely to come for ages.

Pisces (Feb 19- Mar 20)

Neptune squares up to Venus this week to add a dash of unreality and short-sightedness to your world. This aspect may lead you to overestimate people as you look at things through rose-tinted spectacles. You might be fooled into following directions without question. The unwary child of Pisces could be in danger of falling for the bait and being lured into treacherous waters. Your most appealing virtue is your kind and selfless nature, but you must avoid taking things at face value. Check references and credentials very carefully. The proposed contract may be attractive and flattering, but do read the small print carefully!
