March 20 to March 26

Bill Meridian looks at what the stars have in store for you this week.

There is little in the planetary weather to forecast, so we shall look ahead to the full Moon on the 30th. This full Moon is in Libra, the sign of partnerships and agreements. This will increase the urge or the need to make associations or to resolve disputes. There is a good chance of success in these endeavours, but keep the following trends in mind. It is best to make direct contact with other parties. Government and bureaucracy will only get in the way. Direct action and initiative will see you through any effort at reconciliation. Team building and work efforts will flourish if you allow individuals to contribute from their own unique viewpoints. There are many planets in fire signs so people are more freedom-loving and more vocal than usual. At home, this is likely to be obvious with children. They will be more creative and playful than usual.

ARIES (March 20-April 18) Mars in fellow fire sign Leo drives you to exercise. Your social life is energised for most of the month. From the 20th to the 29th, you will want to socialise. A friend may be needed to curtail spending. TAURUS (April 19-May 19) Your diplomatic skills late in the week will be successful in reconciliation efforts. On the 22nd and 23rd, you may need business advice - seek counsel from an older, more experienced confidant.   

GEMINI (May 20-June 19) Most of the celestial action is in the fire signs of Aries and Leo, which are a favourable 60 degrees away from Gemini. So there will be much for you to do and to chat about as ideas, communications and visits swirl around you. Enjoy this breezy period. CANCER (June 20-July 21) The 23rd may be stressful due to the pull of work and family. Poor team results have meant more time at the office, but on the 30th the full Moon will impel you to spend more time with the family.  

LEO (July 22-Aug 21) You are busy with education and travel. If unmarried, you may meet someone with similar interests on the 21st or 22nd. Between the 28th and the 30th expect to meet people with similar ideas. VIRGO (Aug 22-Sept 21) You may realise around the 21st that there is an arrangement, perhaps financial, not in your favour. Wait until the full Moon on the 30th when there is sufficient information to make a sound decision.

LIBRA (Sept 22-Oct 22) Sudden changes may have thrown you. This week, social and relationship matters are key. Invitations and meetings will consume you. For men, the new cycle may involve their car.   SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 20) A relatively quiet week but the pace will quicken soon. The full Moon on the 30th brings unexpected, perhaps forgotten matters that need your attention. Your social life will be on the up soon.  

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 21-Dec 22) As there are no celestial visitors in your sign now, this is a week of green lights for you. You can make much progress with few obstacles. Beware, however, becoming over-confident.    CAPRICORN (Dec 23-Jan 19) You are dedicated to work but this is a week to devote more time to the home. This could amount to a family gathering, a child visiting parents, activity with the young ones or some DIY.   

AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18) Phone calls, texts and e-mails pour in. At the end of this week, you will probably be concerned with overseas dealings. If you are in international trade, you may need to resolve a dispute. PISCES (Feb 19-March 19) A series of short office assignments consume you. On the 25th and 26th, you may need to deal with a ministry or government agency. Next week you will need to resolve financial differences.
