Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)
Don't expect relationships to run smoothly this week - whatever you do or say, someone is sure to take offence. With that in mind, don't bother being nice to people who don't deserve it.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)
You'll be under no illusions about what needs to be done this week. Hopefully you will also realise that there are no short cuts and that whatever you are working on demands your undivided attention.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)
You may find it very annoying that just as you finish something you've been working on for weeks, a colleague decides it should be done a different way. Just bite your tongue and start all over again.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)
You can take great strides in your work and career this week. With the sun, your ruler, focusing on your professional reputation, employers and other very important people will be on your side.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)
Whatever is going wrong in your life may seem important now but that's only because you are dwelling on it. Life is full of ups and downs. But this down phase will end quicker if you expect it to.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)
The pressure is on but it's nothing you can't handle. On the contrary, you'll make such a success of what you are doing that you'll be showered with praise, even by those who have doubted your abilities.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
There seem to be a lot of changes going on around you at the moment and some are a bit worrying. But no matter how great the upheaval, you have nothing to fear and much to look forward to.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
Don't get bogged down in details just because no one else is willing to do the chores. You've done more than your share and if a project fails it will be because others didn't pull their weight.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
Romantically and creatively the sky is the limit. Pluto in your sign will give you supreme self-confidence, to the extent that you truly believe anything is possible. Your attitude will lead to success, and plenty of it.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
Something dramatic will happen, either to you directly or to others in a way that affects you as well. There'll be good news and bad news. But even the bad news can be turned in your favour.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)
Your beliefs will come under fire and you'll have to fight hard to defend them. But if you are promoting ideas that went out of fashion some years ago it might be time to bring yourself up to date.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
This week you will wonder what it would be like to leave your responsibilities behind. If you're wise you won't take that thought seriously. The way to lessen responsibilities is to fulfil them.
