Your stars for the week ahead.

ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18

Thrilling as the events re­shap­ing your life may be, they’re also over­whelm­ing. That’s the na­ture of this pe­riod. Know­ing that, go with the flow, con­scious you can re­or­gan­ise things once the dust set­tles, in early June. For now, fo­cus on learn­ing as much as you can about the chang­ing cir­cum­stances and the peo­ple in­volved. They’re as ex­cited, and as short of facts, as you are.

TAU­RUS APRIL 19 – MAY 19

Ordinarily you’d never agree to ideas or of­fers you don’t fully un­der­stand. While these in­volve what you’ve been hop­ing for, they would take mat­ters fur­ther than you con­ceived pos­si­ble, so you’ve mixed feel­ings. Get in­volved but en­sure ev­ery­body’s clear you’re ex­plor­ing your op­tions. The re­sult­ing in­sights will al­low you to take things to the next stage while you’re still ne­go­ti­at­ing.

GEM­INI MAY 20 – JUNE 20

Ev­ery­body seems con­fi­dent how both re­cent ex­cit­ing events and your own ar­range­ments should be han­dled but, ir­ri­tat­ingly, no­body’s ask­ing about your views. The in­put of oth­ers is vi­tal but it’s un­likely your mind, or po­ten­tial plans, will be clear un­til af­ter the Gem­ini New Moon, on the 25th. For now your pri­or­ity is ex­plo­ration. You’ll make de­ci­sions but prob­a­bly not un­til early June.

CAN­CER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

While there’s been talk of re­think­ing el­e­ments of your do­mes­tic or work­ing life, sud­denly those plans have turned into ac­tion. This is as ex­cit­ing as it is wor­ry­ing, es­pe­cially when it comes to the many de­tails you’ll have to deal with. For­get about try­ing to or­gan­ise these your­self. Get oth­ers in­volved. They’ve good ideas and are ea­ger to give you a hand, but you must ask.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 21

Ordinarily you’re self-suf­fi­cient. How­ever, re­cent events were over­whelm­ing. Ac­tu­ally, with your ruler the Sun and the New Moon, on the 25th, both ac­cent­ing teamwork, the sooner you get oth­ers in­volved, the bet­ter. Gath­er­ing the nec­es­sary facts will take time. In the mean­while elim­i­nate out­dated ar­range­ments and re­view­ing cer­tain long-stand­ing but no longer rel­e­vant goals.

VIRGO AU­GUST 22 – SEPTEM­BER 21

Un­set­tling as re­cent events have been, they’re bring­ing timely break­throughs. True, you’re short of facts but so are oth­ers. Work to­gether, both ex­plor­ing joint op­tions and on po­ten­tial plans. Also, even sim­ple ar­range­ments are likely to change, and of­ten. Know­ing that, for­get about mak­ing a mas­ter plan and, in­stead, ex­per­i­ment be­fore you at­tempt to or­gan­ise any­thing last­ing.

LIBRA SEPTEM­BER 22 – OC­TO­BER 22

Ideas or of­fers are as ex­cit­ing as they are sud­den, which means or­gan­is­ing plans or ar­range­ments while still short of facts. If so, that’s no prob­lem, as long as you en­sure it’s clear you’re still find­ing your way. Then do ex­actly that, explore what’s al­ready planned and, equally, your op­tions, know­ing that be­fore any­thing can be re­garded as set­tled, you’ll go through sev­eral ver­sions.

SCORPIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

Last-minute changes in both your own plans and pri­or­i­ties, and in the cir­cum­stances you’re deal­ing with, may be dis­rup­tive. But they’re also break­ing up old, and of­ten re­stric­tive, pat­terns. There’s no deny­ing the re­sult­ing chaos will be an­noy­ing. Still, trust in­stincts that say even seem­ingly un­set­tling de­vel­op­ments will turn out to be in your best in­ter­ests.

SAGITTARIUS NOVEM­BER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

Your big­gest prob­lem with the dy­namic, of­ten chaotic, but al­ways ex­cit­ing events tak­ing place isn’t cop­ing with the un­ex­pected. Ac­tu­ally, you’re rather en­joy­ing it. The real chal­lenge is deal­ing with those who view these as some­thing to be re­sisted, if not ig­nored. The is­sue is these peo­ple don’t yet recog­nise their prom­ise. En­cour­age them to be pa­tient. They’ll soon thank you for it.

CAPRICORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 18

The cur­rent pow­er­ful plan­e­tary set-up doesn’t just favour you, as a Capricorn. You’ll be de­lighted how events get stalled ar­range­ments from that past mov­ing, all while new and ex­cit­ing ideas are paving the way to fu­ture plans. The only prob­lem? Hav­ing the courage to, at long last, stop mak­ing ex­cuses for those that sim­ply aren’t work­ing, and to put them be­hind you, once and for all.

AQUARIUS JAN­UARY 19 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

Ev­ery once in a while, life sur­prises you with a com­pletely un­ex­pected idea or an of­fer so as­ton­ish­ing you’ve no idea how to re­spond. In ev­ery case, the an­swer is to ex­press in­ter­est, then get in­volved with learn­ing as much as you can. Once you’re more fa­mil­iar with what they’re about, you’ll ex­change the doubts or wor­ries you’ve been wrestling with for pure en­thu­si­asm.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

You’ve a ten­dency to fight for the un­der­dog, even when the sit­u­a­tion isn’t that dra­matic, as is the case now. How­ever, you could also be us­ing this as an ex­cuse to side­step of­fers or ideas that would lead to changes in your own life. These are bril­liant but, bizarrely, you’re anx­ious. This could have some­thing to do with feel­ing guilty about your good for­tune.
