Your stars for the week ahead.

ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18

Be­ing told to de­clut­ter your life is one thing – most Aries get in­volved in lots of plans and de­velop a range of pas­sions, but for­get to dis­en­tan­gle them­selves, and the re­sult is the chaos you’re fac­ing. How­ever, this isn’t just about what, and who, should go. You’re pre­par­ing for your per­sonal new year, the Aries New Moon on the 28th, which ush­ers in a timely fresh start.

TAURUS APRIL 19 – MAY 19

For ages, you’ve been con­sid­er­ing changes in your do­mes­tic setup, daily regime, ac­tiv­i­ties out in the world and close re­la­tion­ships, but the mo­ment’s never come. The pres­ence of dy­namic Mars in Taurus gives you the nec­es­sary boost but, as it’s there un­til late April, you’ve time to ex­plore your op­tions. For now, con­sider both what’s go­ing and what’s next but com­mit to noth­ing just yet.

GEMINI MAY 20 – JUNE 20

Af­ter weeks of frus­tra­tion, you’re fi­nally dis­cussing and, of­ten, mak­ing de­ci­sions about a range of ar­range­ments and al­liances. Some have been in the air for ages, oth­ers are new. But, in ev­ery case, you’re ea­ger to pro­ceed. The trick is to en­sure plans are flex­i­ble, since with yet more in­trigu­ing op­tions ap­pear­ing, things are un­likely to be fi­nalised un­til the end of March.

CANCER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

Be­tween now and the end of March you’ll be fac­ing a se­ries of un­set­tling but ul­ti­mately worth­while ideas or of­fers. Bear in mind that with the ac­tual foun­da­tion on which de­ci­sions are based shift­ing reg­u­larly, the more easy­go­ing your at­ti­tude, the bet­ter. Mean­while, ex­plore your op­tions, in­clud­ing those that you’d pre­vi­ously re­garded as un­re­al­is­tic. Soon they could seem very ap­peal­ing in­deed.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 21

Af­ter the in­for­ma­tive but ag­gra­vat­ing set­backs trig­gered by clashes be­tween both your ruler the Sun and Mer­cury to the de­mand­ing Saturn, you’re ready for a break. For­tu­nately the plan­e­tary em­pha­sis is shift­ing to new ideas. Fo­cus on ex­plor­ing ev­ery­thing, since what ini­tially seems least ex­cit­ing could, ul­ti­mately, work bril­liantly. De­ci­sions re­ally should wait un­til the end of the month.

VIRGO AU­GUST 22 – SEPTEM­BER 21

For you, as a Virgo, plan­ning ahead comes nat­u­rally. Con­se­quently, the change­able sit­u­a­tions you’ll face be­tween now and early April will be frus­trat­ing. How­ever, be­cause these changes in­flu­ence oth­ers, you’re not alone. So, join to­gether to fig­ure out ways to deal with this un­set­tling – but worth­while – pe­riod. Once things are or­gan­ised, you’ll learn and ben­e­fit from ev­ery twist and turn.

LIBRA SEPTEM­BER 22 – OC­TO­BER 22

This week and, in fact, the pe­riod be­tween now and the Libra Full Moon, in mid-April, is about dis­cus­sion, not fi­nal­is­ing de­ci­sions. Once you un­der­stand that, you’ll re­lax and fo­cus on ex­plor­ing your ever-in­creas­ing op­tions. This is timely, be­cause sev­eral ar­range­ments are com­ing un­done. Let them. Trust in­stincts that say what’s next will be far bet­ter than you imag­ined pos­si­ble.

SCORPIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

Cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als seem to be hid­ing things. This is based on their re­luc­tance to ad­dress in­creas­ingly press­ing mat­ters frankly. While your con­clu­sions are un­der­stand­able, the fact is they’re as con­fused as ev­ery­body else. Talk things over. Be frank. Get them to join you in dis­cussing and, even more, seek­ing an­swers for tricky mat­ters, some of which are be­com­ing more wor­ry­ing by the day.

SAGITTARIUS NOVEM­BER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

Of­ten ob­sta­cles test your re­silience. Now, how­ever, the dif­fi­cul­ties you’re fac­ing are un­usu­ally chal­leng­ing and more per­sis­tent. These, which are in­di­cated by tricky as­pects to your ruler Jupiter, this week and next, will slow your pace, but also force you to delve into both long-stand­ing and re­cent ar­range­ments, as well as fu­ture plans. What you learn will re­sult in a timely, and ex­ten­sive, re­think.

CAPRICORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 18

Re­cently you’ve had to jus­tify, and some­times ex­plain in de­tail, your ex­ist­ing plans and those you’re cur­rently or­gan­is­ing. Al­though you’d as­sumed there was noth­ing to ques­tion, the foun­da­tion on which these have been based and your pri­or­i­ties have shifted, more than you re­alise. This means it’s worth giv­ing your­self time, both to re­flect and con­sider what needs to change.

AQUARIUS JAN­UARY 19 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

Dis­cus­sions that force you to jus­tify your think­ing ir­ri­tate you. Worse, you’re cur­rently fac­ing in­di­vid­u­als who are, in some way, in charge but clearly don’t care. Tempt­ing as it is to ex­press your feel­ings and ei­ther be ar­gu­men­ta­tive or stage a con­fronta­tion, you’d re­gret it. Un­likely as it seems, what be­gin as tense ex­changes can turn into worth­while, and ul­ti­mately prof­itable, ex­changes of ideas.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

The seem­ingly dis­mis­sive at­ti­tude of those you’re deal­ing with is mak­ing you un­easy. Enough you’ll want to keep your dis­tance. Don’t. These in­di­vid­u­als are truly in­ter­ested in what you’re sug­gest­ing but don’t fully un­der­stand your vi­sion. In­vest time in dis­cussing the prac­ti­cal side of things and, equally, elab­o­rate on the de­tails that would help clar­ify what you have in mind.
