Feb. 21: Your lookahead horoscope


You will have a hard time keeping a lid on your emotions over the coming 12 months but that does not mean you can just give up and go over the top each and every time someone says or does something that annoys you. Success depends on self-control.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20):

What you hear this week may not be to your liking but there is no reason to overreact. The approaching full moon will have many people behaving in strange ways – you will be far from alone – so don't be surprised if friends and family say and do silly things.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):

You will look for a compromise solution to a problem this week and, of course, that is the right thing to do. But the planets suggest if you give ground others will see it as a sign of weakness and expect you to do so again. Don't give an inch.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):

You will tread on a few toes over the next two or three days but maybe that is no bad thing. Both at home and at work you must make sure everyone knows that you will not be deflected from the course you have chosen to take.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23):

Your movements will be restricted over the next 24 hours but don't make a big issue of it. Delays and disruptions may be inevitable but feeling bad about them is not – that is a matter of personal choice. Instead of moving, why not just enjoy where you are?

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):

There can be no room for sentiment. Certain issues have to be dealt with and certain people have to be told there are no more free rides. Sometimes you can be too nice for your own good but now you must show the world your ruthless side.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):

The approaching full moon in your sign means you will find it hard to see things from anyone's point of view but your own. That's fine but don't forget that others will see things from their point of view as well. There won't be a lot of give and take.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):

You may not like asking for assistance but this is one of those occasions when you have no choice. You can be incredibly ambitious at times but ambition alone won't be enough this week – you will need to call on other people's experience too.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):

You could get carried away and make the kind of silly mistake that someone with your brains should be able to avoid. If you do get it wrong don't make things worse by refusing to accept that you are at fault. You're human like the rest of us.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):

Some people delight in rubbing you up the wrong way and the upcoming full moon suggests you will have to deal with at least one such individual over the next few days. Promise yourself now that no matter what they might say or do you won't overreact.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):

Once you have made up your mind about something you refuse to change your point of view – it's just how you are. Having said which, if the whole world believes one thing while you believe the opposite it could be you who has got it wrong.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):

You may be shocked by what happens this week but the signs have been there for quite some time. How did you miss them? Because you chose not to see them. You of all people should know that the truth will reveal itself eventually.

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):

Others can get emotional if they want to but you must keep your head at all times and in all situations. That won't be easy as the full moon gets stronger but compared to family and friends you've got it easy, so stay calm and help where you can.
