Think your favourite sex position, ideal alcoholic beverage, and dream engagement ring, for starters!

Your star sign can also help you to plan for the week ahead - if you know how to read it, that is.

Thank goodness, then, for Closer astrologer Yasmin Boland, who has examined the stars of the zodiac to bring you your VERY detailed weekly horoscope.

Read below to find out what’s in store for you this week…

If it's your birthday

This is a very good year for you to work on your finances. What do you want to achieve when it comes to money and – in all frankness – what is stopping you from getting it? If it's low self-esteem or even laziness, then you need to address those issues. Money mightn't buy happiness but it does buy other lovely things.

Have you ever stopped to really think about the real meaning of the old phrase "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself"? Why should we fear fear? Why do you think? Because it's utterly debilitating. It serves no purpose. It distracts. And this week, there is a fear coming up for you which you would do well to really feel. What is it about? When did it start? Tune into it and you could get rid of it. There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

TAURUS

Your challenge now, if you choose to accept it, is to work through any issues you have around money. One of the biggest obstacles to a gushing flow of abundance is a fear of not being worthy. But to quote Aussie money coach Denise Duffield-Thomas "I serve, I deserve!" Or for the Type As amongst us "I serve a lot, I deserve a lot!" As long as you know you're pulling your weight, why shouldn't you be rewarded financially? Get it? There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

GEMINI

The skies are tense as angry Mars clashes with nasty Saturn. As luck would have it, this is partly taking place in your Love Zone. So it's a week to live really consciously. Any upsets which are coming to you from important people in your life are happening for a reason. Be it your beloved, your ex, your business partner or anyone else who is a VIP for you, any dramas happening are meant to teach you an important lesson.

CANCER

The number one thing you can do for yourself this week (and throughout 2017) is to live your life in as systematic and methodical fashion as you can. It won't always be like this but Saturn in your 6th House of Daily Life demands that you keep to something resembling an ordered routine. So work harder on getting your life in order. Your future will thank you for it! Make a list of your non-negotiable daily self-care and duty routines.

LEO

Leos like to have fun, but right now the planets are seemingly conspiring against you. In fact, many a Leo currently has the mistaken belief that somehow they shouldn’t be enjoying themselves. It's as though the brakes have been put on your R&R time. That's all nonsense though. In fact, what you need to do this week if you feel melancholy is schedule in some Leo time when you can roar happily with people who really get you. Do it now.

VIRGO

This could be a rather tense week for a lot of people, you included, sorry to report. There is a clash between Mars and Saturn and it's hitting two very sensitive parts of your chart; your Love Zone and your Home Zone. In other words, you could find yourself have dramas and frustrations with your partner or ex and/or with the people back home, people you live with, and/or your family. Stand up for yourself, in a nice and kind Virgo way. There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

LIBRA

You are up against it this week, but not in the way you might think. In fact your own fears or negative thoughts are the enemy this week as Saturn in your Mind Zone is triggered. You are currently in a cycle where you're getting a chance to see how much better life goes when you focus on what you want and not on what you don't want. But are you paying attention? If not, watch out! This week could be challenging! There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

SCORPIO

It seems like 99% of the world has fears around money. That's why we are the 99%, not the 1%. For the 99%, generating cash can be hit and miss. If you believe money is the root of all evil, you will repel it, for example. If you don't think you deserve it, ditto. Notice this week how your money flows. It will teach you about your attitudes to cash and what the future holds for you financially, if nothing else changes.

SAGITTARIUS

Mind how you go this week, especially but not only in your personal life. Tedious task master Saturn in your sign is causing even less fun than usual, as he deals with an antagonistic Mars link. If you can be mature and patient this week, you will emerge seven days older and wiser. If you take a dim view of life, though, things could spiral from bad to worse. You are being tested, as you can probably tell. Time to invoke the good old Sadge sense of humour even if it's through gritted teeth.

CAPRICORN

I've said it before and have to say it again now; this is the time for you to work through your fears. What is holding you back? Unless you're a rare Master or Mistress of the Universe, there is almost certainly one fear or another blocking your path from where you are to where you want to be. This week could see some of those worries and doubts coming to the surface, all the better for you to deal with them.

AQUARIUS

Don't be too hard on your friends. You will miss them when they're gone! Right now, it's very easy for you to be tough on the people you love and even to cut ties. But how does that serve you? You may get to feel as though you're in the right and have the moral high ground (and so on) temporarily. However if you keep culling people from your life, you will have no one you care about left! Scary but true! There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

PISCES

Your working life might not be your favourite subject right now but it's very much front and centre in your astrology. Whether you're working under pressure or looking for work, Saturn is on your back and testing you. If you say one thing and do another professionally right now, the karma will bounce back on you. The way to succeed now is to show how experienced and reliable you are. That will impress the people around you and appease Saturn.
