Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

Put your own needs before the needs of partners and friends this week. That might sound selfish but a Libran full moon warns that if you don’t look out for your interests you may lose something that means a lot to you. And with Mercury turning retrograde in material Taurus you cannot allow others to take what is not on offer.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)

You may feel sympathy for someone having a hard time but that doesn’t mean you should feel guilty. Cosmic activity in sensitive areas of your chart suggests feelings of vulnerability are confusing your priorities. Now more than ever you must put your own needs first.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)

You may not want to take on extra responsibilities this week, especially if it means you have less time to yourself, but neither will you want to leave someone in distress. Perhaps you should make it clear it’s the last time you’ll ride to the rescue – next time they’re on their own.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)

Work and career issues have been uppermost on your mind of late and you may have drifted a bit off course where an important relationship is concerned. Luckily, you won’t have to make drastic changes of direction – one or two minor adjustments should do the trick.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)

This week’s full moon emphasises social occasions of one kind or another, but don’t burn the candle at both ends unless you don’t have to get up in the morning. Your energy level may dip dramatically early in the week when the sun challenges driven Pluto. So take it easy.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)

If you don’t take responsibility for your actions you can’t complain when loved ones refuse to take responsibility for their own. You are, after all, their inspiration and role model. What you say and do this week will be watched and copied by those of an impressionable age.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)

This week’s Libran full moon will bring love, laughter and passion into your life. Even if you have important responsibilities to deal with, you’ll approach them in a light-hearted way and, curiously, that will make them easier to handle. Who says you have to be sad to be serious.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

However good your ideas might be, they’ll be wasted if you’re too shy or lacking in confidence to speak out. You may have set yourself daunting tasks but once the moon moves into Scorpio late on Tuesday you can make a lot more progress than anyone anticipated.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

If a certain situation doesn’t appeal to you, ignore it. Others may claim you’re under an obligation to get involved or help out, but you’re not. If you give in to emotional blackmail over something trivial, you’ll be expected to give in over more important matters later on.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)

A setback or disappointment of some kind will have to be endured with as much good grace as you can muster, so put on a brave face. The sun in Taurus after April 19 will tilt the balance in your favour and enable you to resolve any outstanding disputes.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)

You will find it the easiest thing in the world this week to break the ice and express your most intimate thoughts and feelings to those who need to know them. Even people who have been openly hostile in the past will give you a fair and sympathetic hearing.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

You have only one priority this week. You know what it is and you know you must concentrate on it to the exclusion of all else. No matter how many interesting things may be going on around you in the world at large, you must resolve a financial matter once and for all.
