Challenges on the home front will require a tough love stance over the coming year but if you approach what you have to do in a spirit of compassion your efforts will not only have the desired effect but will help that love grow stronger too.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20):

Your sympathy for a loved one’s woes will cast you in a favourable light this weekend. More importantly, you won’t just make the right noises, you will find ways to help them on a practical level – and the universe will find ways to repay your kindness.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):

The more of a noise those around you make this weekend the more of a noise you will need to make, and with Mars moving into the communications area of your chart that won’t be a problem. Your way with words will win many admirers.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):

If you need assistance over the next 48 hours you must let friends and family members know. They will be more than happy to help but only if you make it clear you want them to get involved – they won’t encroach on your privacy without being asked.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23):

As Mars moves into your birth sign this weekend you will be remarkably bullish about your prospects. Also, you won’t let bad people get away with saying and doing things that could impact you for the worse. Challenge them if you think they are lying.

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):

A long-term friendship will be put under strain this weekend but chances are it will come out of the experience even stronger than before. You are in one of those moods when you know you can make good things happen even in the worst of situations.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):

Friends, loved ones and colleagues will hang on your every word over the next 48 hours and you will certainly have a few choice things to say. Because yours is such a logical sign no-one will be able to dispute your version of the facts.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):

As Mars moves into the area of your chart that governs your standing in the world at large this weekend you won’t hesitate to speak up and let others know where they are going wrong – and, remarkably, most of them will thank you for it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):

Don’t let fear get the better of you. If you allow your doubts to hold you back you will regret it later on when you realize how much you could and should have accomplished. To get anywhere worth going you need to take a few risks.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):

As Mars changes signs this weekend you could make an enemy of someone who resents your belief that they should do as you say merely because it’s you who is saying it. Not only will they resent you but they will secretly work against you too.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):

If you make an effort to work with other people this weekend, both in your private life and in your career, there is no limit to what you can achieve together. Someone whose ambitions are as strong as your own could become a lifelong friend.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):

By all means take a few risks on the work front but don’t expect your colleagues to take them with you. You may have an adventurous soul but others are too set in their ways to embrace the kind of changes that comes naturally to you.

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):

Someone you think of as a rival, maybe even an enemy, could become a good friend over the next 48 hours. Like you they have creative ideas they believe they can change the world for the better, so get your heads together and make good things happen.
