Here is what your star sign has in store for your love life, relationships and career the week starting Saturday, April 24.


An offer that comes your way could take you down untried pathways. Don’t hold back because you sense someone close is likely to object. They may not feel as adventurous as you do but you can reassure them that you won’t take any unnecessary risks. Be discreet in all professional dealings. You suspect someone of dishonesty but until you have proof, keep any negative thoughts to yourself. This is not the time to air your suspicions.


You’ve been planning to make a move in a new direction for some time only one excuse after another has prevented you from doing so. You have a chance now to act on these intentions. If you spend too much time thinking, you won’t ever find the courage to bring this about. If your best friend or partner has made an embarrassing mistake, don’t rub it in. Not even in jest. If you want a relationship to last, you need to be prepared to work at it.


Although a colleague means well, the advice they are offering you is unhelpful. You would like to diffuse the tension between you but you don’t know how. Everything you say seems to rub them the wrong way. Everything you do seems to be wrong. It might be best to avoid them altogether. A friend or neighbour has come to heavily rely on you. You don’t mind helping out occasionally but you want a life of your own.


People won’t always agree with you and they will try to persuade you to rethink your decisions. This will make you start to doubt yourself. You have the right ideas. Don’t let anyone talk you out of them. It’s important to stand your ground. It brings you happiness to help those who are more vulnerable. At the same time, you need to look after your own interests. Agreeing to work a set number of hours for a charitable organisation will be rewarding.


You’re surprised, after all you have done for a friend, that they seem to turn their back on you. They aren’t answering your calls and whenever you suggest meeting up, they have made alternative arrangements. It’s disappointing that they are ungrateful for all the time and effort you have put into this relationship. When they realise how much they have hurt you, apologies will follow. Take any chance you get to relax: you need it.


You are tempted to make an irrational choice or decision just to shake things up a bit. It’s unlike you to be impetuous. Foolish optimism should be avoided. Take the advice of a practical friend and curb an urge to be extravagant and self-indulgent. In legal matters there will be the usual, tedious red tape to tie up but the worst is over and the end will soon be in sight. Be sure to make some time in your schedule later, to relax.


You’re doing your best to get over a recent disappointment. You could do with the support of friends and family. You hate to admit you are feeling sensitive and vulnerable but someone who knows you well will sense your need for some reassurance. Their comforting words will help you overcome your fears. Are you looking for work? Sometimes your search for a job might seem futile but don’t get disheartened. Exercise can help release tension.


Developments in your career will be so swift and sudden they will take you by surprise. It will feel as if your world has been taken by storm. If you have an important decision to make, take a deep breath and count to ten. You need to know you are thinking clearly before deciding what to do next for the best. Walking, cycling and getting out is really important for your mental and physical health. Getting close to nature is therapeutic.


Mistrust is marring a close relationship. Make an effort to build bridges. A heart-to-heart talk will reveal some hidden resentments and through being honest with each other, suspicion will be replaced by appreciation. Rushing about madly in trying to get everything done will lead to careless mistakes. A financial matter would benefit from some extra attention when some surprising information about a recent expenditure will come to light. Someone has not been honest about certain financial transactions.


New methods and routines will be introduced into the workplace. This reminds you of a project you were thinking about at the start of the year which you still haven’t got around to. This would be an ideal time to set the ball rolling. A relative seems to be doing all they can to discourage you from pursuing your own interests. If you snap at them, this will cause tension between you. Keep your emotions under control.


Think carefully about all you say and do. Be on the alert for people who will mock your efforts and then steal your ideas. Someone will try to out manoeuvre you in a professional or legal deal. Keep your distance from anyone you suspect is dishonest or disloyal. This could be your chance to break free from a toxic situation. Have faith in yourself and in your abilities. You have more control over your destiny than you may realise.


You can normally rely on your powerful intuition to help you sense obstacles that may be ahead. You might therefore wonder why you didn’t see a difficult situation coming. It shouldn’t take you long to realise your instincts aren’t as reliable as usual. For now, avoid getting into arguments with your loved ones about your plans. There are some ideas you will need to keep secret. You don’t have to tell your family everything you are doing.
