Your stars for the week ahead.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS NOVEM­BER 22 – DE­CEM­BER 20

Although the Sagit­tar­ius New Moon on De­cem­ber 7 marks a fresh start, you’re al­ready ex­plor­ing, and gain­ing from the cur­rent pow­er­ful plan­e­tary fo­cus on your sign. Oth­ers may ad­vise you to care­fully an­a­lyse your op­tions. In­stead, ex­plore ev­ery­thing, say­ing a ten­ta­tive yes to what ap­peals. Later, when you’re bet­ter in­formed, you can de­cide what no longer works and what will re­main.

CAPRI­CORN DE­CEM­BER 21 – JAN­UARY 19

As much as you dis­like things be­ing out of your con­trol, it’s now clear that cer­tain tricky sit­u­a­tions are en­tirely the re­spon­si­bil­ity of oth­ers. Ac­knowl­edg­ing this frees you to fo­cus on re­cently ne­glected per­sonal mat­ters and, even more, pas­sions. This shift is a re­lief but is also a re­ward for your gen­eros­ity with oth­ers, some of whom have nei­ther no­ticed nor ap­pre­ci­ated your ef­forts on their be­half.

AQUAR­IUS JAN­UARY 20 – FE­BRU­ARY 17

Life has been frus­trat­ing enough re­cently that you could al­low mi­nor set­backs to turn into ma­jor dra­mas. Recog­nis­ing this is the first step to dis­tanc­ing your­self from this frus­trat­ing pat­tern and fo­cus­ing on new and more pro­duc­tive ac­tiv­i­ties and goals. This, in turn, will broaden your hori­zons, and just when you’re ready to meet new peo­ple and be­gin set­ting new, chal­leng­ing yet more re­ward­ing goals.

PISCES FE­BRU­ARY 18 – MARCH 19

At the mo­ment your big­gest prob­lem is find­ing a way out of ar­range­ments that once worked but no longer do. In fact, they’re re­stric­tive and the peo­ple in­volved unin­spir­ing. Waste no time try­ing to find a way to im­prove on these. Be­gin ex­plor­ing your op­tions now. You may re­alise you’ve been ig­nor­ing in­trigu­ing in­di­vid­u­als or pur­suits. Ex­plore these, con­scious you’ve lots more yet to dis­cover.

ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 19

Usu­ally you re­gard set­backs as some­thing to be over­come as swiftly as pos­si­ble. Yet those you’re cur­rently fac­ing are about break­ing old and, of­ten, re­stric­tive pat­terns and ven­tur­ing into new ter­ri­tory. While this could in­volve your ac­tiv­i­ties or those you un­der­take them with, these changes could be tak­ing you into a new, pos­si­bly un­fa­mil­iar set­ting. For now, ex­plore ev­ery­thing. De­ci­sions can, and should, wait. 12

TAU­RUS APRIL 20 – MAY 20

You’re deft at win­ning oth­ers over to your ideas, al­most with­out dis­cus­sion. Yet cer­tain of the sit­u­a­tions you’re fac­ing are more com­plex, and will re­quire con­sid­er­able thought and, pos­si­bly, per­sua­sion. Even more, recog­nise that with the ac­tual foun­da­tion on which these are based shift­ing, your own views, pri­or­i­ties and plans could shift too, and far more dra­mat­i­cally than you an­tic­i­pated.

GEM­INI MAY 21 – JUNE 20

Now that your ruler Mer­cury is no longer ret­ro­grade, you’ll find it eas­ier to both ad­dress tricky mat­ters and un­tan­gle com­plex is­sues. But, even more, you’ll re­alise some aren’t ac­tu­ally your re­spon­si­bil­ity any­way. Iron­i­cally, oth­ers will ac­knowl­edge this as well. This means that after a lit­tle shuf­fling of tasks, things will get done faster and eas­ier, leav­ing you time to ex­plore in­trigu­ing op­tions and en­joy life.

CAN­CER JUNE 21 – JULY 21

While there’ll be progress in many ar­eas of your life, don’t be sur­prised if you’re un­sure what’s next. That’s to be ex­pected now, in the run up to the piv­otal Can­cer Full Moon on the 22nd. For now, fo­cus on what needs a re­think or, per­haps, could go. This is both clear­ing the way, and pre­par­ing you for the new cy­cle that be­gins later this month.

LEO JULY 22 – AU­GUST 22

The last thing you’re in the mood for are lengthy dis­cus­sions, es­pe­cially if they’re in re­sponse to ques­tions about cer­tain of your plans or pas­sions. De­spite that, make an ef­fort. Talk things over. Iron­i­cally, what you learn from those dis­cus­sions could of­fer valu­able in­sights about pre­vi­ously per­plex­ing is­sues or fu­ture plans you’re strug­gling to or­gan­ise.

VIRGO AU­GUST 23 – SEPTEM­BER 22

Ob­vi­ously, life would be a lot eas­ier if you could rely on plans, your own and those that in­volve oth­ers. But with so much in tran­si­tion, and with many of those changes con­sti­tut­ing ma­jor im­prove­ments, even dis­rup­tive de­vel­op­ments could be ben­e­fi­cial. For now, there­fore, fo­cus on what you’re learn­ing from what arises. Once you know more, the next step, and those after that will be clearer.

LI­BRA SEPTEM­BER 23 – OC­TO­BER 22

It would be no sur­prise if you’re still wrestling with con­flicts or mi­nor mis­un­der­stand­ings. While this arose in early De­cem­ber, your ef­forts to achieve an ac­cord or calm those who are anx­ious have achieved lit­tle. Press­ing as these seem, busy your­self with other longne­glected tasks. These need at­ten­tion. Bet­ter yet, this forces cer­tain lazy in­di­vid­u­als to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for their end of the mat­ters.

SCOR­PIO OC­TO­BER 23 – NOVEM­BER 21

You’ve been dis­cussing, and deal­ing with, sev­eral com­plex sit­u­a­tions for ages. Sat­is­fy­ing as the progress you’ve made may be, you’ve been un­able to deal with sev­eral wor­ry­ing loose ends. Fi­nally things come to­gether, of­ten so eas­ily you’re wary, un­sure so­lu­tions are for real. They are and, bet­ter yet, it’s time to cel­e­brate putting these to rest, then move on. Many in­trigu­ing op­tions are await­ing you.
