Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

Stick to what you are good at and you will have a pleasant life; take a risk occasionally and you will have an exciting one, too. There are many ways you can liven up a dull routine but, according to your solar chart, there is one in particular that could make you feel young and invigorated again. Have you the guts to go through with it?

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)

You need to guard against disappointment – not because you have anything to be disappointed about but because the sun in Aries can make you fear the worst and that makes it far more likely the worst will happen. A positive attitude is a must if you want positive results.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)

You have a right to hold certain views and a right to defend those views when those who should know better claim you don’t know what you’re talking about. Go on the offensive if you’re shouted down or held up to ridicule. Your opponents have more to hide than you.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)

Even a Cancer has enemies, but few Cancers have secret enemies – your sensitive nature means you know exactly what’s going on. Someone you instinctively distrust will greet you in an excessively friendly way this week. You may find it hard to rebuff them – but you must.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)

What happens next will force you to choose between several objectives, to narrow your aims down to the one or maybe two you most want to accomplish. Don’t complain if someone in authority places certain restrictions on you; it will turn out to be exactly what you need.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

It’s not enough to understand something others find so confusing – being a Virgo you’ll want to use it to enhance your reputation. Just make sure in so doing you really do understand what you’re talking about, or your reputation may head in the opposite direction.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

You may not have been consciously aware of it but you’ve been preparing yourself for a certain development, one your subconscious mind has been expecting for some time. So what happens next won’t take you totally by surprise, but it will still take some getting used to.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

You won’t have much choice about what you do this week and you’ll probably be quite happy to let partners and loved ones call the shots. But don’t agree to take on certain responsibilities just so you don’t need to argue – they may prove more arduous than you imagined.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Learn to be happy with what you have and you’ll find you’ll need a lot less to make you happy. Pluto aligned to Mars in Taurus means something you have taken for granted is about to assume immense importance in your life. It will do wonders for your bank balance, too.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)

Don’t try to avoid a confrontation in the misguided notion a dispute will resolve itself if you leave it alone. It may even be necessary to raise your voice and make it very clear you’re not in the least bit amused with what a loved one has said, done or is planning to do.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)

You may be completely unaware of why you’re acting in such an aggressive manner this week but you can be sure there is a valid reason why you feel the need to go on the attack. Just make sure you pick the right target and don’t annoy someone you need on your side.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

Some things need change and some need to be left alone – it’s simply a question of deciding which is which. As a general rule, you should seek to change those things for which you’re personally responsible while ignoring those in which your interests aren’t directly involved.
