Have your say

Here’s our astrological guide to the week.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20) Your enthusiasm for a pet plan or idea is great, but think carefully before you start going about it. There are some short cuts to use, especially if you can chat to someone who has been there before! Being patient where love is concerned is the way to get the best response from a partner. The more you care about a loved one, the more open they are able to be to your needs.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) The atmosphere of support this week gives you the confidence needed to make an important move. Choose your words and actions carefully around someone who is currently being a little touchy. Giving up some of your leisure time is really appreciated by a family member. Business and other commitments could see you having to juggle between home and work.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) Talking around a subject takes time and patience. However, just when you think that you are getting nowhere, a response comes. Finances seem tangled up with friends, perhaps due to a joint holiday plan. Be flexible when it comes to longer-term benefits and try to fit in. Things can change quickly and for the better if you remain flexible. New approaches can quickly alter the outcome.

CANCER (June 22 - July 22) Strong friendships and new colleagues at work set the tone for this forward-looking week. Suggestions from a friend for a change of direction are appealing. Getting down to the practical details, however, needs determination. Aim to bring romance into your life this weekend even if it means cancelling putting up those shelves or painting that ceiling!

LEO (July 23 - August 23) Naturally others are drawn to you because of your happy nature. Overall there seems to be a much bigger demand on your time than usual. This is extra effort worth making, especially for older relatives and friends. Although you are loved and appreciated, it is nice to be told so. This does not always happen but that does not mean you should be concerned about it.

VIRGO (August 24 - September 23) Progress in love can take you by surprise this week. Just when you thought you were running in a rut, along comes a novel situation! Could it be that someone who has been busy and distracted has noticed you at last? Keep their interest going by being enthusiastic and inventive. There is much to gain by pulling out all the stops and making that extra effort.

LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) A passionate time takes you back and could even stop you in your tracks. Could efforts made in the past to attract someone finally be paying off? Resist the urge to play it cool when you know what you want. There seems little point in denying that you feel a surge of happiness. They say everything comes to he who waits. It isn’t always true but, in your case, have a lovely time this weekend.

SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) When passion comes calling it is hard to keep a cool head. Still, no need to break the bank when what is needed is just your company. Did I say ‘just’? Putting the most romantic efforts into the weekend can see a whole change in your direction. Will you be celebrating? A long-awaited breakthrough builds confidence and gives fuel to the fire in your heart.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21) Speaking to friends and colleagues helps to clear up a puzzle. There is, after all, no substitute for experience! A younger member of the family has something to celebrate and needs your full encouragement. Indeed, giving praise where it is due becomes important as the week ends. A single-minded attitude may slow down personal progress but will greatly benefit others close to you.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20) A chance remark from a colleague or friend brings something sharply into focus. Perhaps an idea that fell by the wayside because of other commitments has now found its time? Open communications and develop a closer relationship with others. Make the time, this week, to take some new ideas on board. A ‘to-do’ list becomes essential as midweek arrives.

AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19) Using your talents and creativity makes something happen this week. Imagine you had all the confidence possible. What would you be trying out right now? Is there any real reason you should not give it a go? There is so much to gain here. Look to your own resources to get ahead but also be willing to read and look for practical backup where needed.

PISCES (February 20 - March 20) Being a little bit crafty sets you ahead of the crowd. With your mind truly sharp, make the most of any chance to advance a plan. Some days small moves are all that is needed. Get a feel for what you are trying to do. Could your instinct play a part? You bet! Tempted to wear your heart on your sleeve at the weekend? Just make sure you are in the right place for it to be seen!
