Your stars for the week ahead.

ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18

As in­for­ma­tive as dis­cus­sions and your in­ves­ti­ga­tion of op­tions has been, you’re ea­ger to turn the ideas you’ve been ex­plor­ing into ac­tion. Sun­day’s move by your ruler Mars to ac­cent the struc­ture of your life is about ex­actly that. Take those first steps but, be­cause things are mov­ing swiftly, you’re urged to en­sure ar­range­ments are flex­i­ble enough you can re­think them, prob­a­bly sev­eral times.

TAU­RUS

April 19 – May 19 Usu­ally, plan­ning ahead is wise. But with your ruler Venus hav­ing formed a se­ries of pow­er­ful as­pects, last week, and mov­ing into Tau­rus on Tues­day, life’s about change. While, or­di­nar­ily, that might be wor­ry­ing, you’re al­ready con­fi­dent even un­set­tling events are break­ing up re­stric­tive ar­range­ments and lead­ing to some­thing ex­cit­ing. Still, if in doubt, say yes now and ask ques­tions later.

GEM­INI MAY 20 – JUNE 20

Late May’s Gem­ini New Moon may have brought pow­er­ful in­sights. How­ever, the ar­rival of your rul­ing planet, Mer­cury, into your sign, on Tues­day, en­ables you to ex­change per­sis­tent ques­tions for a fresh, and timely, per­spec­tive on both ex­ist­ing ar­range­ments and fu­ture ven­tures. If oth­ers de­mand details, ex­plain you’re still con­sid­er­ing your op­tions. For now, flex­i­bil­ity is your pri­or­ity.

CAN­CER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

Since late April, the dy­namic Mars has been po­si­tioned in the most re­flec­tive por­tion of your chart. This prompted you to face, and deal with, a range of tricky sit­u­a­tions, from doubts to com­plex obli­ga­tions. How­ever, Sun­day’s move by Mars into Can­cer boosts your spir­its, so you’ll be in the mood, and ideally po­si­tioned, to tackle nu­mer­ous is­sues you’ve been delv­ing into.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 21

Ev­ery­body dreams of thrilling op­por­tu­ni­ties. While that’s ex­actly what’s com­ing your way, ei­ther they’re puz­zling or you’re short of cru­cial facts. This prompts you to ask some se­ri­ous ques­tions. Not only will you be glad you did, you’ll re­alise plans weren’t ad­e­quately thought through. Things will come to­gether, but prob­a­bly not un­til your ruler the Sun en­coun­ters the prac­ti­cal Saturn, on the 15th.

VIRGO AU­GUST 22 – SEPTEM­BER 21

For weeks, you’ve been jug­gling all sorts of ideas but been un­able to come up with last­ing plans. How­ever, be­tween pow­er­ful and pos­i­tive plan­e­tary ac­tiv­ity and, as of Tues­day, your ruler Mer­cury ac­cent­ing the de­ci­sion-mak­ing process, things start fall­ing into place. While some of those ar­range­ments will be very dif­fer­ent from any­thing you’d imag­ined, they’ll also turn out to be much bet­ter.

LI­BRA SEPTEM­BER 22 – OC­TO­BER 22

Your ini­tial reaction to sud­den changes could be to try to slow their pace. That’s not only im­pos­si­ble, that mo­men­tum is forc­ing those who’ve bat­tled these to give in. Things may seem wor­ry­ingly out of con­trol, but it’s be­cause ev­ery­body’s try­ing to make up for lost time. Even seem­ingly dra­matic events have been dis­cussed for ages. Be pa­tient. Within days it’ll all make sense.

SCOR­PIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

Un­set­tling as watch­ing fa­mil­iar el­e­ments of your life come un­done may be, these changes are noth­ing new. Be­tween de­lays and your own ef­forts to side­line them, noth­ing’s hap­pened. How­ever, with the ac­tual cir­cum­stances shift­ing, these aren’t just in­evitable, they’re in your best in­ter­ests. You’ve al­ready glimpsed what’s next, and it’s both thrilling and hope­ful.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS NOVEM­BER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

Although you’re highly in­quis­i­tive, once you’ve ex­plored ideas, you’ll move on to what­ever’s next and dis­like cov­er­ing old ground. Yet that’s ex­actly what you’ll be do­ing, mostly so you can ei­ther re­think or say farewell to cer­tain once-worth­while ar­range­ments. This isn’t just about prac­ti­cal mat­ters. Ex­pect events and, es­pe­cially, your feel­ings to cli­max by next Fri­day’s Sagit­tar­ius Full Moon.

CAPRI­CORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 18

Over the past weeks you’ve been watch­ing on­ceprized el­e­ments of your life change dra­mat­i­cally, if not come un­done. While, mostly, this is no sur­prise, some of what’s next could seem a shock if not a dra­matic loss. Yet, deep down, you’ve known these ar­range­ments were reach­ing their end. Say a proper farewell, then fo­cus on the rather thrilling new ideas or of­fers ap­pear­ing.

AQUAR­IUS JAN­UARY 19 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

There’s no way you’ll get through this dra­matic week with­out re­think­ing, if not elim­i­nat­ing, var­i­ous long-stand­ing ar­range­ments. This seems sud­den but, in fact, you’ve been ex­plor­ing var­i­ous op­tions for ages. It’s just they’ve been in a very dif­fer­ent form. The trick is to ex­plore ev­ery­thing. Once you learn more, you’ll re­alise how well things fit to­gether, and will be far more re­cep­tive.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

Usu­ally you’re the first to spot nec­es­sary changes, point them out to oth­ers, then get things go­ing. Yet now you’re anx­ious. That’s prob­a­bly more about the build-up to next Fri­day’s emo­tion­ally in­tense Full Moon, which ac­cents these and other po­ten­tial changes. Delve into your doubts now, and you’ll not only clear them up, you’ll im­prove on var­i­ous ar­range­ments as well.
