Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
You may feel you are being taken advantage of by someone in a position of authority and maybe you are but there is little they can do to harm you. So smile sweetly and make it clear that you don't care.


Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)
Look for ways to co-operate rather than compete this week. Whatever your ambitions, you can be sure you are not alone. There are many others who share your aims, values and attitude to life.


Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)
Praise partners and colleagues to the skies. Make them think you are behind them 100 per cent. It may not be true but it is essential you keep relations civil. You may even have to tell a little white lie or two.


Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)
Don't allow yourself to be coerced into doing something you either don't agree with or which holds no interest for you. You may owe someone a favour but how and when you repay it is negotiable.


Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)
This should be a romantic week but you must be careful not to let your feelings get too strong. A light-hearted attitude to love is your best defence but against whom and what remains to be seen.


Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)
Someone you live or work with may say something outrageous to provoke a reaction. Ask yourself why they would feel the need to do that. Could it be that you haven't been paying them enough attention?


Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)
You need to recharge your batteries. The best way to do that is to forget about work for a while and spend quality time with loved ones. Wherever you go and whatever you do, don't take your work with you.


Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
You may be tempted to play up your part in a project that you have only a minor role in but if you do you'll leave yourself open to ridicule. You don't need to pretend to be more important than you are.


Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
You'll want to create something special this week, something that will remain long after you've gone. But don't be pushy about it and remember that not everyone shares your life goals.


Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
Anyone who thinks they can force you to do their bidding obviously doesn't realise how stubborn you can be - but they will. If, however, they ask nicely you'll go out of your way to help.


Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
Don't assume that because someone occupies a position of responsibility that makes them a responsible person. An authority figure may give you a hard time this week. No doubt you'll respond in kind.


Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)
You must protect your financial interests this week. It's possible that someone powerful will try to cheat you out of your share. Put your foot down. Let them see you're not such an easy touch.
