The new week begins with Mars in the last few degrees of its journey through Taurus. Financial decisions will need to be well considered, as he begins to contact with Saturn. This is because the two planets begin to go opposite on an initial "disassociate" basis, before the exact opposition on Friday.
If you are finding any situation especially oppressive, be it an overbearing colleague, noisy neighbours, or a tight budget, a level of frustration and exasperation can start to mount. Be do hold this; with Mercury still mired in confusion with Neptune, do ensure anything you are fretting about, is with the full facts at your disposal.
Aries 21 March - 20 April
The week begins with the Moon in a friendly upbeat location, one which can help you to share your weekend experiences, and find ways to surf an excellent potential for spontaneity. Whilst Monday may not usually be the day to start new things or plan social events, both are possible as a spirit of enterprise grabs you.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Today's Quarter Moon in Aquarius can see your current aims and goals slightly out of kilter. Your desire to do things individualistically is what is under review, and this may not suit or fit in with someone you need to keep onside or impress. Then again if you are in the mood to rebel you may not care, and just go for it.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
If your moods have taken some unexpected turns of late Gemini, this is a week for you to look forward to, because one of the reasons for this issue, Mars' passage through your 12th Solar House, is set to come to an end. You will find yourself more focused, and more energised with lift-off set to occur any day now.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Balancing idealism with realism is the key today, and in the next week too. For example, if a friend tries to enthuse you with what they see as being a brilliant business or money making idea, don't dismiss it out of hand, but neither go overboard with your expectations. Also avoid those with a penchant for gossip
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Look to be crystal clear in your personal expression today. A swirling mist of confusion is further unsettled by the waxing Quarter Moon, and how you come across is going to be important. Even if unintentionally people can draw the wrong conclusions or make the wrong impression. So, do take extra care, Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Being the most virtuous of zodiac signs you often do your bit, when others may choose to look the other way. However, recently you have been enjoying a more freedom loving dynamic and it could be that someone will try to remind you of your responsibilities. If this irks somewhat, just say straightforwardly how you feel.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Two really influential planetary influences are in progress today. The first, the square between Mercury and Neptune is running on from last week. This can create mighty confusion, and requires you to carefully manage all documents and emails. The second suggests someone may be more envious of you than you know.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
A home, domestic, family or emotional situation may seem all the more in a muddle because of the attitudes or views of people close to you. To navigate this it is going to be important not to take at face value what you are told. The fact is that many of us will be at sixes and sevens, so just let things be where possible.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Clarity of purpose is essential as this week begins. But you are going to get a real shot of energy on Wednesday when Mars will start to supercharge the way that you interact with others. Until then, do be conscious of the need for economy of effort. Even if it's not your style, make lists and stick to the day's essential tasks.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
When the planets stir up energies at the same time in your 2nd and 5th Houses, as they do today, this can see financial issues tangling with relationships with loved ones. And with clear thinking for us all at something of a premium today, if you are asked for a loan, give yourself some thinking time before agreeing.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Family demands or the needs of other people close to you may run counter to what you want to do for yourself. And with Venus still sparkling in the most wonderful of locations for you personally, part of you can resent this, preferring to focus on lighter and more frivolous possibilities. A spot of retail therapy may appeal.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
You can be compassionate and also very giving. However, someone may spin you a story today where they could tug at this side of your nature. Make sure your boundaries are firm. Be determined to keep a strong sense of perspective. Refuse to tune into anyone needy or negative, or who indulges in too much flattery.
