Aries

March 21 - April 19

Sometimes a change of scenery is all we need to feel refreshed and ready to face any challenge.

This is where you are now, so turn your life on its head by looking at it upside down. Not that you have to stand on your head - just find a new way of looking at things! Not sure how to begin? Make faces in the mirror or sing a silly song.

Taurus

April 20 - May 20

Communication is your strong point now, so if there's something you need to say, don't hesitate!

You are able to express yourself well - and that's half the battle won. Others may not always agree with you, but they'll have great respect for your ability to explain yourself properly. Top tip: tantrums won't work. Be mature and calm.

Gemini

May 21 - June 20

It's time to take stock of the details of your life. This means checking your savings account, tidying your room and that sort of thing.

While most of us find these tasks boring, your lively spirit will make them easy to accomplish.

De-cluttering your work, living and emotional space makes room for lots of positive energy to flow.

Cancer

June 21 - July 22

Saying goodbye is never easy, but there are times when we need to let go of something or someone.

If you feel that this time has come, be brave. Perhaps a personal relationship is past its 'sell-by date' or you have held onto a negative attitude that no longer has a place in your life. By turning your back on what is no longer important, you pave the way for new beginnings.

Leo

July 23 - August 22

Don't sweat the small stuff - that's your motto this week. Write it down and stick it on the fridge!

Details and duties are getting you down, but with a little effort, you're well on your way to success.

A winning attitude is all you need and the rest will take care of itself. Worrying yourself silly is a waste of precious energy.

Virgo

August 23 - September 22

Look around you - there is so much to be grateful for, if you take the time to see it. Although you might feel moody more often than usual now, there's sunshine and joy in appreciating the people who love you.

Open your heart and let those special friends and relatives know how much they mean to you. In a few days, you'll be brimming with cheeky smiles again.

Libra

September 23 - October 22

No matter how big, scary or impossible a situation seems, there is always a way around any problem.

Learning to believe that you are able to solve an issue and succeed is a major lesson for you this week. It could be as arbitrary as tidying your room, or as life-changing as deciding on a future career path. Whatever it is, know this: the answer lies within.

Scorpio

October 23 - November 21

There is no sense in putting it off - whatever you're trying to avoid will have to be faced this week.

As ominous as this sounds, don't worry. The universe is simply asking you to take responsibility for an important task or situation.

So, no matter how much you would rather stay in bed, don't avoid the issue. Go out and do what you have to do.

Sagittarius

November 22 - December 21

You may not realise it, but your natural charm and ability to listen make you an ideal counsellor.

It's possible that somebody needs your advice now, or perhaps you can shed new light on a tricky situation or project.

Trust your instinct to say or do the right thing at the right time. Your input is very valuable and what you have to contribute is important.

Capricorn

December 22 - January 19

You are persuasive and logical, so there will be little trouble getting a new idea off the ground this week.

The trouble is, you seem to think that you can't do it alone - but asking everyone for advice will just cause confusion.

Decide how you want to tackle something and then put your plan into action. You have the talent and stamina to succeed.

Aquarius

January 20 - February 18

Bottling up your emotions can result not only in physical illness, but feelings of resentment and a pretty bad temper.

Although you don't like confrontation, it's a good idea to clear up any relationship problems by talking honestly about issues. At the very least, you should work off that nervous energy with a brisk stroll, a hot shower and an early night. Yes, really.

Pisces

February 19 - March 20

Patience is your best friend this week - even though you'd much rather rush.

Taking the time to do something properly is the key to getting the most out of life. Don't look for short cuts. Your ability to stop, take a breath and complete your to-do list will result in rich rewards - and an unbeatable sense of accomplishment.
