As the resident Warrior Man/Woman of the zodiac, your modus operandi is one where you charge into situations quickly with guns blazing. (The long list of Aries hotheads includes Butch Cassidy, Bette Davis, Alec Baldwin and Russell Crowe.) Rambunctious Rams are also notorious for lacking follow-through. But this week the Sun shifts into Taurus and Mars moves into Cancer. So make sure your fiery enthusiasm is tempered with some caution and a practical long-term plan.
With Mercury and the Sun joining Venus and Uranus in your sign, it’s time for steady Bulls to step up and be the calm voice of reason, as you find creative ways to work with others.

Be inspired by Queen Elizabeth (who turns 95 on April 21). “Whatever life throws at us, our individual responses will be all the stronger for working together and sharing the load.”
Versatile Geminis are gregarious gadflies, clever communicators and masters at multi- tasking. But things could still go haywire this week, as the planets disrupt your preconceived plans. Don’t let it deter you though! With Mars moving through your sign (until Friday)

With the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus all moving through your networking zone, the more you mix and mingle and the more connections you make (in person and online) the better the week will be.

Don’t wait for opportunities to magically appear … be proactive about following your dreams.
The Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus bring the opportunity for recognition and advancement at school, university or work. Through your daily words and actions, you have the power to influence other people in positive and productive ways. So don’t miss the chance to make a real difference. Watch out for dramas on the weekend, when Saturn shines an unforgiving spotlight on shortcomings in a relationship. The more you communicate and cooperate, the better the outcome will be.
Mighty Mars is moving through your reputation zone (until Friday) so it’s time to tap into the Virgo courage and resilience within. Other people are looking to you for strong leadership, sensible ideas and pragmatic solutions. So roll up your sleeves and get to work! Your motto is from Queen Elizabeth (who turns 95 on Wednesday). “When life is hard the courageous do not lie down and accept defeat. Instead, they are all the more determined to struggle for a better future.”
Your ruling planet Venus is vamping through Taurus, which lights up your luxury-loving side and wakes up the hedonist within! Romance and passion are also highlighted as the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus all stimulate your sensuality zone. Thursday and Friday look unpredictable (especially involving finances) while the weekend throws a relationship challenge in your direction. Single Librans … look for a lover who is also a friend (someone who you can really talk to).
This week’s stars encourage you to find practical ways to help those around you. But resist the temptation to be a stubborn, intractable and risk-adverse Scorpio.

Be inspired by birthday great, singer and actress Cher, “I’ve always taken risks, and never worried what the world might really think of me.”
This week is all about formulating smart strategies and finding practical solutions.

The planets also stir up your self-esteem zone, as you take a deeper look at your fundamental core values and transform an outdated belief.
Many Capricorns will feel capricious and cranky this week! Expect some uncomfortable discussions with family and friends. You’re not in the mood to be diplomatic, and others will be surprised by the intensity of your feelings (and your reluctance to compromise). But you’ll have to give a little in order to get a lot. Avoid becoming bogged down in negatives and being a carping critic. On Friday night, do your best to kick up your Goat heels and have some serious fun.
There’s a planetary pile-up in your home zone so expect some family shenanigans and domestic dramas this week (especially on Thursday and Friday). You’re also likely to hear some startling news that makes your ears burn but try to be super discreet with any secrets that come your way. If you’re tempted to spread red-hot rumours and gratuitous gossip, then heed the wise words of birthday great, novelist and poet Charlotte Bronte, “Look twice before you leap.”
This week do your best to assiduously avoid Piscean passivity and procrastination!
