NW - - Hot Shots - The week ahead with Adele Lang

Aries MAR 21 – APRIL 20

Other peo­ple’s sup­port may be re­quired if you want to get a project off the ground. Ac­cord­ing to this week’s astro-trends, of­fers of help could come from sur­pris­ing types. Turn­ing them down is un­ad­vis­able. To achieve what you need to at present, you need to dis­miss any mis­giv­ings you might have ini­tially.

Can­cer JUNE 22 – JULY 23

Less-than stel­lar align­ments may pre­dict low en­ergy lev­els for crab­girls this week, but there’s no rea­son to back out of all so­cial or work com­mit­ments. You’ve just got to be more dis­cern­ing about who you de­cide to see and what you choose to do. The rest can wait un­til you’re feel­ing full of beans again.

Libra SEPT 24 – OCT 23

Now that Venus is trav­el­ling with Nep­tune, there should be job op­por­tu­ni­ties ga­lore – even if you’re not presently on the look­out. No-one ex­pects you to ex­plore each and ev­ery work va­cancy. Still, you could do worse than fol­low through on a few of the of­fers. If noth­ing else, it’ll give your ego a boost!

Capricorn DEC 22 – JAN 20

A brief planetary lull means you’re bet­ter off lay­ing low this week. There is no point in mak­ing your pres­ence known when cer­tain folk refuse to ac­knowl­edge your ex­is­tence. Neigh­bours and col­leagues are be­ing par­tic­u­larly ob­tuse. So why not save both your en­ergy and your bat­tles for a well-starred week?

Taurus APRIL 21 – MAY 21

Mars is in your money-house, urg­ing you to be less cau­tious with your sav­ings and far more will­ing to take on riskier in­vest­ments. Do­ing some­thing on a “hunch” isn’t al­ways rec­om­mended, of course. How­ever, over the next week, your in­tu­ition looks set to be sec­ond to none when it comes to fi­nan­cial spec­u­la­tions.

Leo JULY 24 – AUG 23

Mercury’s mov­ing for­ward again, so now is the per­fect time for fi­nan­cial de-clut­ter­ing. This may mean get­ting rid of dor­mant bank ac­counts and cut­ting down on the num­ber of credit cards you own. It may also be wise to check stand­ing orders and di­rect deb­its – some might well be due for can­cel­la­tion.

Scorpio OCT 24 – NOV 22

Un­til so­lar ac­tiv­ity starts set­ting your love life alight later next week, you’ll just have to con­tent your­self with whole­some fun with some of your friends. For­tu­nately, it seems at least one of your pals is as stuck in a ro­man­tic rut as you are – so you’re un­likely to be short of a pla­tonic part­ner-in-crime.

Aquarius JAN 21 – FEB 19

Af­fairs of the heart will go very well – pro­vid­ing you fre­quent fa­mil­iar, lo­cal haunts. Ac­cord­ing to your love planet, the Sun, trav­el­ling fur­ther afield won’t land you any great ro­man­tic catch right now. While you might still be tempted to book a trip away, only do so if you’re will­ing to fly solo and to re­turn home. Alone.

Gemini MAY 22 – JUNE 21

When Jupiter starts mov­ing back­wards mid-week, a bud­ding ro­mance could stall or break down al­to­gether. Much as this might up­set you, the last thing you should do is aban­don hope. Not ev­ery two­some is meant to suc­ceed. Most of them are there to teach you some­thing so you can move on to a hap­pier place.

Virgo AUG 24 – SEPT 23

Your ruler, Mercury, wants you to con­nect more with peo­ple in real life rather than on­line. You may be­lieve you’re bond­ing like crazy but chances are you’re not get­ting the best out of most re­la­tion­ships at present. Spend less time texting and tweet­ing your near­est and dear­est. Make an ef­fort to see them in­stead.

Sagittarius NOV 23 – DEC 21

On­go­ing health prob­lems won’t get any bet­ter while you’re spar­ring with a sib­ling, a parent or a part­ner. Venus im­plores you to kiss and make up be­fore things get worse on all lev­els. You mightn’t be­lieve un­re­solved emo­tional is­sues are di­rectly re­lated to your present phys­i­cal ail­ments, but some of them most cer­tainly are.

Pisces FEB 20 – MAR 20

Fish-girls in a love-ver­sus-money quandary should see the scales fall from their eyes in forth­com­ing days. Mercury reck­ons a well-paid job could fi­nally prove more sat­is­fy­ing than a pen­ni­less and point­less (but dead-sexy) suitor. Much as you tend to fight ma­te­ri­al­is­tic ten­den­cies, your com­mon sense will kick in.
