See what the stars have in store
If you celebrate your birthday this week:
 
Your Year Ahead
 
With Saturn continuing to set its sights on your career, this year you will be noticed.  Don’t hesitate to demand all the recognition you’ve earned. You’re a willing participant in anything that’s going right now.  It’s possible, though, that less honourable colleagues may try to steal your glory.  If so, try to resolve the situation – but resist using aggression or unfair tactics.  Integrity, patience and honesty will work more in your favour.  In June, there’s a welcome chance to mix business with pleasure.  Travel, too.  So it’s not all work and no play.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Best Day:   Sunday 7th
 
Many have had their love lives excavated from the grow up, and then some.  So for now, you’re in the throes of reinventing your world.  Having done so much emotional clearing, you’re preparing new ground for someone with not only incredible magnetism but with the kind of staying power that is built to last.  Delightful news, indeed.  
 
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Best Day:  Saturday 6th
 
There may be moments this week when you just have to detach and leave others to their own devices.  It seems as if no one is willing to listen – so any advice will just fall on deaf ears.  Remember the saying:  when the student is ready, the teacher appears.  People will learn in their own time and way.  For now, concentrate on your own needs.  
 
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Best Day:  Tuesday 9th
 
There’s a change of mood, Gemini.  Instead of hurtling along at breakneck speed, your enthusiasm gives way to a gentler, more meditative pace. Perhaps for good reason. Sometimes you need slow down to ensure a safe journey ahead.  Still, it needn’t be a lonely excursion.  Someone will be holding your hand.  
 
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Best Day:  Friday 5th
 
This week brings a powerful push towards achievement, which could mean a new job or change of occupation. It may even feel you’re being dictated to by events beyond your control.  Perhaps that’s true, as Mercury prompts new studies while Jupiter pushes for material gain.  This is the planets’ way of encouraging success.  
 
Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Best Day: Wednesday 10th
 
While you may feel that the odds are stacked against you, or that others are conspiring against you – you’d do well to see this as a test of character. You may not be able to control what happens to you, but how you respond is entirely in your hands. There’s no need for your lion’s roar when a calmer, more composed conversation will do.  
 
Virgo (August 24 – September 22)
Best Day:  Thursday 11th
 
Many Virgos benefit from a boost in happiness and optimism this week, which will hopefully spill over into love and friendships.  As it’s not really the time for solo efforts, pairing up with others is the way to go.  So go find some synchronous souls.  The other surprise?  A gift or cash bonus – a deserving reward.  
 
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Best Day:  Sunday 7th

This week partnerships and relationships are heavily emphasised. Should negative circumstances exist in any of your alliances, it’s a time of increased pressure to resolve disagreements. You may also be concerned with legal matters, negotiations or the income of a relative.  If in doubt, seek professional advice.

Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Best Day:   Monday 8th
 
This week may bring sudden and unexpected love or fun.  Tired of being tethered, you’re ready to escape emotional shackles. Venus sets the mood with bewitching introductions. Singles: simply enjoy!  Stressed relationships might seem best abandoned, but don’t let restless planets rule your heart or head.  They have to move on – you don’t.    
 
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Best Day:  Saturday 6th
 
Your best bet for personal success this week is by expressing yourself sincerely and warmly. Social activities look to increase, with your home possibly being the centre of activity.  Or you may hear news regarding a new home – either your own or property belonging to some close.  Contact with a woman could also bring contentment.
 
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) 
Best Day:  Friday 5th
 
It’s quite likely that you mean what you say, but what others hear is a different matter. This is a time where your best intentions may be misconstrued, which means even more detail may be required. Unfortunately, the more you say – the deeper the pit you dig.  Be delicate with your communications.   
 
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Best Day:  Thursday 11th
 
This week holds the promise of financial rewards. Don’t expect a huge windfall, but look forward to improved cash flow all the same. Suddenly life’s luxuries may not seem so out of reach. It’s also an excellent time for long term investment, such as property – or perhaps just treat yourself to a holiday.  
 
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Best Day:  Monday 8th
 
This week encourages you to be as ambitious as you like, but let common sense rule your wallet. You’ve been in debt for a while now. Put any good advice or sudden influxes of cash to good use. Don’t rely on past habits. Create a simple plan that gets you back to the basics and build from there.  The next step looks to be a career move.
