Your stars for the week ahead.

LI­BRA SEPTEM­BER 23 – OC­TO­BER 22

Plan­ning ahead may be a virtue, but do too much of it now and you’ll only con­fuse mat­ters. In­stead, fo­cus on those ac­tiv­i­ties that no longer mat­ter, then be­gin mak­ing the nec­es­sary changes. This process will de­clut­ter your life but, equally, pre­pares you for the in­sights and un­ex­pected ideas or op­por­tu­ni­ties that ac­com­pany the Li­bra New Moon, on Tues­day the 9th.

SCOR­PIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

Some­times ob­sta­cles are ex­actly that, dif­fi­cul­ties that must be over­come. But those you’re fac­ing now, and will be un­til early Novem­ber’s Scor­pio New Moon, are about let­ting go of el­e­ments of the past and, equally, ex­plor­ing new and of­ten oddly for­eign ideas or of­fers. Be­gin now and, when the time comes for those changes, they’ll have be­come fa­mil­iar, enough that you’re ready to plunge in.

SAGITTARIUS NOVEM­BER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

Of­ten it’s not un­til dis­cus­sions turn into ar­gu­ments that the full facts and every­body’s feel­ings come out. This isn’t just what’s hap­pen­ing, the re­sult­ing reve­la­tions will lead to of­fers as thrilling as, of­ten, they are un­ex­pected. Still, with cir­cum­stances shift­ing un­til next month, when your ruler Jupiter moves into Sagittarius, you’re urged to re­gard plans as more of an ex­per­i­ment than any­thing last­ing.

CAPRICORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 19

No mat­ter what you plan, ex­plore or de­cide, you’re in for chal­lenges. That may sound wor­ry­ing but, ac­tu­ally, these is­sues and ob­sta­cles are high­light­ing mat­ters that need at­ten­tion. Some are long­stand­ing, oth­ers new. But in ev­ery case, changes in cir­cum­stances around you mean ex­plor­ing a range of op­tions. While, ini­tially, you’ll be tempted to do the min­i­mum, you’re urged to do things once, and be bold.

AQUARIUS JAN­UARY 20 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

It’s not that you mind change, but you do ob­ject when oth­ers are in charge and mak­ing de­ci­sions that will only com­pli­cate mat­ters. Dis­cuss your con­cerns. Either the ex­pla­na­tions of the in­di­vid­u­als in ques­tion will calm you or, al­ter­na­tively, they’ll adopt your sug­ges­tions. Or both. Mostly, be aware this isn’t about a sin­gle plan or event, but a lengthy pe­riod of ul­ti­mately re­ward­ing growth and evo­lu­tion.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

Although no­body would blame you for sus­pect­ing some­body’s been mak­ing plans be­hind your back, seem­ingly un­der­hand ma­noeu­vres are the re­sult of lit­tle time for dis­cus­sion. In­stead of wor­ry­ing or feel­ing left out, get in­volved. Don’t wait to be asked. In­stead, sim­ply step up, be­gin mak­ing sug­ges­tions or take ac­tion on your own. This won’t just be wel­comed, oth­ers will be thrilled you’re part of it all.

ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 19

You’ve been fac­ing a range of in­flex­i­ble in­di­vid­u­als and com­plex ar­range­ments. Or­di­nar­ily, you’d bat­tle these. In­stead be­gin ask­ing ques­tions. What you learn will ex­plain the ori­gin of those dif­fi­cul­ties but also will re­veal other, po­ten­tially more re­ward­ing, ways of deal­ing with them. How­ever, you’ll en­counter an ap­peal­ing op­tion. Drop these bat­tles and shift your fo­cus to more re­ward­ing pur­suits.

TAU­RUS APRIL 20 – MAY 20

Be­tween re­cent changes, many dra­matic, and your on­go­ing anal­y­sis of wor­ry­ing el­e­ments of your life, you’re con­duct­ing a se­ri­ous re­think. You’re not alone in this. Many around you are do­ing the same, and many of them are strug­gling. If they seek your ad­vice, give it, but cau­tiously, as they’ll blame you for what doesn’t work. And if you need ad­vice? Go within. It’s prob­a­bly the best bet.

GEMINI MAY 21 – JUNE 20

Be­ing told you’re about to be dis­il­lu­sioned won’t sound promis­ing. How­ever, what arises only con­firms your ex­ist­ing con­cerns. Now that things are clear, you could con­front the is­sues or in­di­vid­u­als in ques­tion head on. But you’ve an al­ter­na­tive. Take charge. De­cide to sub­stan­tially al­ter or even break away from these ar­range­ments. What­ever you do, tak­ing ac­tion will be a huge relief.

CAN­CER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

Tempt­ing as it is to put cer­tain badly needed changes into ac­tion, things are un­likely to go well. It’s not that you’ll be fac­ing dif­fi­cul­ties as much as with the ac­tual cir­cum­stances shift­ing, there’ll be sev­eral re­vi­sions. Know­ing that, be re­laxed about tim­ing and fo­cus on ex­plor­ing your op­tions. What you dis­cover could turn al­ready ap­peal­ing con­cepts into some­thing both as amaz­ing and un­ex­pected.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 22

While, re­cently, you’ve bat­tled to keep ex­ist­ing ar­range­ments un­changed, sud­denly it’s clear you should go with the flow. True, this could take you into un­fa­mil­iar ter­ri­tory. How­ever, with the foun­da­tion on which these are based un­sta­ble any­way, even long­stand­ing ar­range­ments must shift or could crum­ble. Be­sides, what you dis­cover and who you meet will jus­tify a bit of dis­rup­tion.

VIRGO AU­GUST 23 – SEPTEM­BER 22

Re­cently, you’ve faced dif­fi­cul­ties in el­e­ments of your life. These have made it clear a sub­stan­tial re­think is vi­tal. Mostly, this is about up­dat­ing ar­range­ments. True, some will de­mand you re­view your ap­proach, re­think once prof­itable habits or, pos­si­bly, your ob­jec­tives. While, ini­tially, you may bat­tle this, the re­sult­ing in­sights will re­veal a promis­ing new ap­proach.
