Your stars for the week ahead.

ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18

You’ve got to or­gan­ise your­self in sit­u­a­tions in­volv­ing ev­ery­thing from prac­ti­cal­i­ties, to study or even travel, but are short of facts. Out of char­ac­ter as it is, make half­way de­ci­sions, but en­sure oth­ers know they’re likely to change. This gives you vi­tal time to ex­plore your options fur­ther. While what you learn will an­swer nu­mer­ous ques­tions, it’s un­likely you’ll be ready to com­mit un­til late March.

TAURUS APRIL 19 – MAY 19

Hav­ing been forced to leave de­ci­sions up to oth­ers or, al­ter­na­tively, diplo­mat­i­cally sidestep cer­tain mat­ters, sud­denly you’re in charge. With dy­namic Mars now in Taurus, you’ll be re­view­ing past ar­range­ments, some long term, and ex­plor­ing new but often ques­tion­able options. Or so it will seem ini­tially. What you learn about these and, as much, about your­self will be as sur­pris­ing as it is re­ward­ing.

GEMINI MAY 20 – JUNE 20

Once you un­der­stand you can’t avoid te­dious if not point­less de­mands, you’ll waste no time try­ing to sidestep these. The irony is, this process yields valu­able in­sights. This equips you to re­think your ini­tial vi­sion or stand up to de­mand­ing in­di­vid­u­als or reg­u­la­tions. You’ll soon be ex­plor­ing ideas or al­liances that re­cently seemed com­pletely in­ac­ces­si­ble.

CANCER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

Be­tween Sun­day’s emo­tion­ally in­tense Full Moon and al­ready com­pli­cated dis­cus­sions re­gard­ing var­i­ous plans or ar­range­ments, you’re on edge. Un­der­stand­ably, you’re try­ing to en­sure things go smoothly. But the bizarre fact is mis­un­der­stand­ings could lead to prof­itable dis­cus­sions. Adopt­ing an easy-go­ing at­ti­tude re­gard­ing these sit­u­a­tions will be worth the ef­fort.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 21

Usu­ally your in­stinc­tive Leo charm eas­ily wins over even those who’re re­luc­tant to em­brace your ideas or plans. Now, how­ever, in cer­tain sit­u­a­tions you’re be­ing forced to pro­vide in­for­ma­tion, and in the form oth­ers want. While an­noy­ing in the short term, what you learn will prove amaz­ingly help­ful in a range of di­verse sit­u­a­tions. Re­gard this process as an in­vest­ment in your fu­ture.

VIRGO AU­GUST 22 – SEPTEM­BER 21

The Virgo Full Moon, on Sun­day, puts you un­der pres­sure yet height­ens vul­ner­a­ble feel­ings. Fo­cus on those prac­ti­cal­i­ties and, for the mo­ment, ig­nore your own ques­tions about why noth­ing’s been done about these be­fore now. You’ll learn the facts, in time. Mean­while, you’ll be de­vel­op­ing the skill of be­ing truly de­tached, de­spite fac­ing sit­u­a­tions where you could eas­ily blame oth­ers.

LIBRA SEPTEM­BER 22 – OC­TO­BER 22

While there’s no sidestep­ping cer­tain dull prac­ti­cal mat­ters or is­sues about obli­ga­tions, once you’ve tack­led them, you’ll re­alise they’re not ac­tu­ally that de­mand­ing. This, then, gives you the courage to deal with tricky per­sonal is­sues. Line up your facts and choose your time care­fully. The process may take longer and re­quire more thought but these, too, will be set­tled with unan­tic­i­pated ease.

SCORPIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

Lit­tle is as an­noy­ing as those who hold back on cru­cial facts un­til they’re use­ful, then spring them on you, their ob­jec­tive be­ing to gain the up­per hand. Yet, in cer­tain sit­u­a­tions, you’ve adopted ex­actly the same ap­proach and will soon have to re­veal your own se­crets. So do it now, while you can sidestep po­ten­tial dra­mas. This tim­ing is cru­cial, as you’ll soon dis­cover.

SAGITTARIUS – NOVEM­BER 22 DE­CEM­BER 20

For ages there’s been talk of changes in your do­mes­tic or work­ing life but noth­ing’s worked out. How­ever, Sun­day’s Full Moon brings both your feel­ings about these mat­ters, and the ac­tual cir­cum­stances in­volved to a head, prompt­ing fast ac­tion. Move swiftly, bear­ing in mind that what­ever you do or de­cide is just the be­gin­ning of a cy­cle of ex­plo­ration that ex­tends into early April.

CAPRICORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 18

Or­di­nar­ily you’d take the blame when oth­ers com­plain you’re lack­ing vi­tal facts or, worse, what they’ve been told is inac­cu­rate. Since, as a painstak­ing Capricorn, you dou­ble-check ev­ery­thing, such er­rors are un­likely. The real is­sue is the height­ened feel­ings trig­gered now, prior to Sun­day’s Full Moon. Know­ing that, apol­o­gise gra­ciously then back off.

AQUARIUS JAN­UARY 19 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

Be­cause you dis­like deal­ing with dull prac­ti­cal de­tails, you’ll tackle them as soon as you can, dou­ble-check your in­for­ma­tion, then move on to other mat­ters. So now that cer­tain is­sues have be­come cru­cial, you’re ready. But that doesn’t mean oth­ers are. Or that they’ll even recog­nise those facts you’ve care­fully as­sem­bled. This is ag­gra­vat­ing if not in­sult­ing. Be pa­tient. Ul­ti­mately, you will win.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

Be­ing in­tu­itive, you’ll often sense that oth­ers aren’t be­ing dif­fi­cult be­cause of a spe­cific sit­u­a­tion but due to anx­i­ety. Yet since the in­di­vid­u­als in ques­tion are un­likely to be aware of that, your best bet is to dis­tract them un­til they’re think­ing more clearly. This re­quires both diplo­macy and pa­tience. Even­tu­ally, they’ll be ready to dis­cuss is­sues ra­tio­nally, but it prob­a­bly won’t be this week.
