Your stars for the week ahead.

ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18

As much as you adore your loved ones, you gen­er­ally try to avoid ar­gu­ments. You’ve bet­ter things to do than lis­ten to oth­ers’ ex­pla­na­tions, es­pe­cially when you’ve noth­ing to sug­gest. Now, how­ever, get in­volved. What you learn about peo­ple, the ac­tual cir­cum­stances, and your­self, won’t just be in­for­ma­tive, those in­sights could trans­form cer­tain per­pet­u­ally stress­ful re­la­tion­ships.

TAU­RUS APRIL 19 – MAY 19

When oth­ers com­plain about the dif­fi­cul­ties they’re fac­ing, lis­ten sym­pa­thet­i­cally but do noth­ing. That may seem in­sen­si­tive, but with fre­quent changes, their tales of woe could van­ish, pos­si­bly overnight. Your time’s bet­ter fo­cused on ex­cit­ing events in your own life. Ex­plore ev­ery­thing. What be­gins as un­ex­pected, and pos­si­bly un­wel­come, could turn into break­throughs, if not just plain mir­a­cles.

GEM­INI MAY 20 – JUNE 20

Af­ter the fast-paced and of­ten thrilling past few weeks, re­al­ity hits with a bump, prob­a­bly in the form of press­ing prac­ti­cal con­cerns. Fo­cus on un­tan­gling con­fu­sion and de­ter­min­ing who owes what in terms of money, ef­fort, time or even grat­i­tude. Nu­mer­ous un­ex­pected mis­un­der­stand­ings will sur­face. Make clear­ing these up your pri­or­ity. It will be hard work but well worth do­ing.

CAN­CER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

There’s no sim­ple so­lu­tion for con­flicts at work or at home. Ac­knowl­edg­ing that frees you to do some­thing out of char­ac­ter and leave it to those in­volved to re­solve these. This, then, al­lows you to ex­plore the sud­den but in­trigu­ing shifts be­ing trig­gered by Satur­day’s Can­cer New Moon. Un­set­tling as tak­ing changes fur­ther would be, deep down you know they’ll be in your best in­ter­ests.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 21

Or­di­nar­ily you’re the first to try out ex­cit­ing new ideas or ex­plore the lat­est de­vel­op­ments. Yet now cir­cum­stances or your own need to re­flect on sev­eral un­re­solved, and tricky, sit­u­a­tions means keep­ing things to your­self. Cer­tain of these mat­ters may be un­set­tling. If so, take it slowly. The is­sues you re­solve will free you from fear or wor­ries you thought you’d just have to live with.

VIRGO AU­GUST 22 – SEPTEM­BER 21

It’s not un­til events or, pos­si­bly, diplo­matic ne­ces­si­ties force you to leave cer­tain plans or de­ci­sions in oth­ers’ hands that you re­alise what a per­fec­tion­ist you are. Wor­ry­ing as their ideas are, these mat­ters are theirs to deal with. Gra­ciously with­draw and, ide­ally, busy your­self with cer­tain plea­sures you’ve been putting off be­cause you were too busy. Now, you’ve plenty of time.

LI­BRA SEPTEM­BER 22 – OC­TO­BER 22

Ini­tially, events will seem tricky, if not con­fus­ing. Ask a few dis­creet ques­tions, and you’ll re­alise that, bizarrely, cru­cial de­ci­sions have been split be­tween you and cer­tain other in­di­vid­u­als. That be­ing the case, fo­cus on mat­ters where you’re in con­trol. Then firmly leave the rest to oth­ers who, once you think about it, are bet­ter pre­pared than you to deal with those par­tic­u­lar mat­ters.

SCOR­PIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

Whether it’s prac­ti­cal is­sues or sit­u­a­tions in­volv­ing oth­ers, if you’re sure of your facts, you’ll stand up for your­self. Yet judg­ing by the cur­rent tricky plan­e­tary setup, you’d be wise to do some se­ri­ous in­ves­ti­ga­tion first. What you learn could be as sur­pris­ing as it is in­for­ma­tive. Bet­ter yet, these in­sights could lead to dis­cus­sions about changes that once seemed un­re­al­is­tic, if not im­pos­si­ble.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS NOVEM­BER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

When asked your opin­ion, you’ll give it, and openly. Sim­i­larly, when asked for help, you’ll try your best. Now, how­ever, do some se­ri­ous in­ves­ti­ga­tion first. It may be oth­ers need ex­pert ad­vice. But it’s just as likely they’re try­ing to avoid their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and were hop­ing you’d take over. While you can be of as­sis­tance, these mat­ters are in their hands, they’re not up to you.

CAPRI­CORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 18

Watch­ing ar­range­ments you’ve worked hard to or­gan­ise come un­done is no fun. How­ever, you’ve long been aware of twists and turns in the back­ground, so won’t be sur­prised when events de­mand a re­think, if not sub­stan­tial changes. While these may be dis­rup­tive in the short term, what you learn will prove in­for­ma­tive now and, bet­ter yet, pro­vide a new vi­sion for the fu­ture.

AQUAR­IUS JAN­UARY 19 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

It’s an un­set­tled week in a pe­riod of seem­ingly con­stant change. Yet, thus far, you’ve not only rid­den out even the most un­ex­pected of events, many have been wel­come. That’s mostly the case this week, al­though you may chal­lenge a re­or­gan­i­sa­tion that seems point­less. Do so, bear­ing in mind that what you learn from the re­sult­ing dis­cus­sions could win you over to those changes.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

Usu­ally, you’re su­perb at spot­ting what’s work­ing well but, per­haps, needs more en­thu­si­asm, ver­sus those mat­ters that once were bril­liant but now lack fu­ture promise. This may be ob­vi­ous to you but, still, ex­plain­ing it won’t be easy. Know­ing that, clear cut as your views are, gather facts that will back them up. This will re­fine your think­ing and en­sure you’re able to win oth­ers over.
