Your stars for the week ahead.

ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18

You’ll al­ways ex­plore an ap­peal­ing idea or of­fer. While you may have lit­tle in­cli­na­tion to take things fur­ther, you’re con­fi­dent you’ll learn from the ex­pe­ri­ence and pos­si­bly meet some in­ter­est­ing peo­ple. But cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als can’t see that, and are ob­ject­ing. Ex­plain it’s your de­ci­sion, then qui­etly ex­plore on your own. What you learn will form the ba­sis for a more worth­while dis­cus­sion.

TAURUS APRIL 19 – MAY 19

Trust in­stincts that say to play it cool, even when oth­ers’ plans are ques­tion­able. With both your ruler Venus and fierce Mars in the most strate­gic por­tion of your chart, you’re learning from ob­serv­ing events from the side­lines. But, as much, this is about de­clut­ter­ing your life, in term of ob­jects and also ac­knowl­edg­ing cer­tain plans and pas­sions are go­ing nowhere and let them go.

GEMINI MAY 20 – JUNE 20

Oth­ers fre­quently com­plain that you change plans and de­ci­sions, some­times more than once. This is about jug­gling life’s ever-shift­ing op­tions. Now the rest of the world is wrestling with events so dra­matic they’re do­ing the same, but mak­ing a drama of it. Tempt­ing as it is to men­tion it, and have a laugh, they’re un­ac­cus­tomed to so many twists and turns so won’t see the hu­mour.

CAN­CER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

Be­tween eclipses on the 11th and 26th, you and the world around you are in the midst of shake-ups. While some in­volve el­e­ments of your daily life, oth­ers are about broad­en­ing your hori­zons. Un­set­tling as these seem ini­tially, they’re worth ex­plor­ing. At the min­i­mum, you’ll learn some­thing, but what you dis­cover and who you meet could, ul­ti­mately, be noth­ing short of mag­i­cal.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 21

The sudden changes or height­ened feel­ing trig­gered by the Leo eclipsed Full Moon on the 11th won’t be wel­come, at least at the time. How­ever, you’ll soon recog­nise how much you’re ben­e­fit­ing from even un­ex­pected events. They’re clear­ing the way for timely if un­set­tling growth. What’s more, the re­sult­ing vul­ner­a­ble feel­ings will lead to dis­cus­sions that are in­for­ma­tive and touch your heart.

VIRGO AU­GUST 22 – SEPTEM­BER 21

Events are re­shap­ing your way of living, work­ing or lov­ing, so, ob­vi­ously, you want facts. Yet with February’s many twists and turns, you sim­ply can’t keep up. Be pa­tient un­til the Virgo Full Moon, in a month, which will clar­ify your pri­or­i­ties. For now, ex­plore un­fa­mil­iar ideas and broaden your hori­zons so­cially. This en­sures those de­ci­sions are based on the widest range of op­tions.

LIBRA SEPTEM­BER 22 – OC­TO­BER 22

You some­times com­plain every­body leaves de­ci­sions to you. Oth­ers are now shoul­der­ing these, yet you’re still un­easy. Dis­cuss your con­cerns once, and frankly, if you must, but then shift your fo­cus to im­prov­ing el­e­ments of your per­sonal life, and ac­tiv­i­ties you en­joy. They’ll not only ben­e­fit from at­ten­tion, you won’t have to won­der whether oth­ers are en­joy­ing them. They’re just for you.

SCORPIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

For ages you’ve sensed events would force you to re­think cer­tain long-stand­ing el­e­ments of your life, so you’ve avoided plan­ning too far ahead. Be­tween February’s two eclipses and the po­tent clash be­tween Mars and your ruler Pluto, on the 22nd, you’re now in the midst of those changes. Be­gin mak­ing plans now but en­sure they’re flex­i­ble enough so that you can re­vise them as nec­es­sary.

SAGITTARIUS NOVEM­BER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

February’s plan­e­tary ac­tiv­ity is dra­matic. That’s in­escapable. Yet you’ll also no­tice that even sudden events open the door to ideas or of­fers as thrilling as they are un­ex­pected. The more you ex­plore, the more ex­cited you be­come. Your only real prob­lem is those who’re sus­pi­cious of ev­ery­thing new. Dis­cus­sions achieve noth­ing. In­stead, in­volve the in­di­vid­u­als in ques­tion, but in a mod­est way.

CAPRICORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 18

Even­tu­ally, you’ll have to de­fine and deal with sit­u­a­tions as ag­gra­vat­ing as they are im­pos­si­ble. These in­volve a gen­uine power strug­gle, which means nei­ther you nor oth­ers are will­ing to give up any ground. Next week, how­ever, there’s po­ten­tial for a break­through. Ini­tially you may need to com­pro­mise. Do so. Within days you’ll get it all back.

AQUARIUS JAN­UARY 19 – FEBRUARY 17

Al­though re­cently you dis­cussed po­ten­tial changes in your lifestyle, and be­gan to ex­plore them, sud­denly there’s lots more to talk about. This is in equal parts ex­cit­ing – mostly be­cause these ideas are so fresh and pique your in­ter­est – and wor­ry­ing, mostly be­cause you’re un­en­thu­si­as­tic about re­think­ing things. Don’t bother. By the time it’s all set­tled, it will have worked out bet­ter than you ex­pected.

PISCES FEBRUARY 18 – MARCH 19

Living in the mo­ment is some­thing you’ve never found easy. Yet the seem­ingly con­stant but odd changes you’re fac­ing make plan­ning im­pos­si­ble, which means you’re do­ing ex­actly that. This is wise, be­cause now, in the run-up to the pow­er­ful Piscese­clipsed New Moon on the 26th, your time is best in­vested in con­sid­er­ing what might go. Plans? They can wait for a while.
