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...

You need to be sure that you're channelling your energy wisely in the year ahead. If you feel like you're trying hard and getting nowhere, the best idea is to try something new, rather than banging your head against a brick wall, so to speak. Overall, though, it could be an amazing 12 months for you, thanks to the New Moon in your birthday chart.

ARIES

Use this week to really work on your communications skills. As an Aries, you often shoot from the lip anyway, which can be an issue for you. Aries is a wonderfully impetuous and spontaneous sign - but that can be a double-edge sword when it comes to telling others what's on your mind. And with feisty Mars in your Communications Zone and the New Moon, you could end up speaking first and thinking later. Avoid! Master this and life will improve!

TAURUS

This is the time for you to take the initiative when it comes to your finances; how much you're earning and how much you want to earn. If you are honest with yourself about how hard you're willing to work for the money that you want, you could start to achieve your goals. If you know you have fears about cash which are holding you back, then this New Moon week is the ideal time for you to work through those fears.

GEMINI

The New Moon this week is in your sign which is excellent news for tired Geminis. You have the exhausting planet Saturn in your opposite sign right now so if you're feeling drained, that's why. However, this week's Gemini New Moon should bring you some oomph and restore the spring in your step. All in all, you should feel you're getting your power back. Don't wait for things to happen though. Make time to make a 12-month plan for yourself. There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

CANCER

This might not be your easiest week, as the New Moon triggers your Fear Zone and Venus clashes with Pluto across two very sensitive parts of your chart. It's super important that you focus on what you want now (and not on what you don’t want). Decide that any upsets which happen this week professionally are stripping away things, situations, even jobs and relationships that no longer serve you. If someone or something doesn't spark joy in your life, should it stay? There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

LEO

Make a wish this week – in fact make up to ten. The New Moon takes place on May 25 and it's taking place in the part of your chart that's all about making wishes. Wishes are actually quite powerful energetic propositions. You close your eyes, you imagine something, you feel what it would feel like if it came true. It feels good! You tell the Universe, "yes, that is what I want" and – as if by magic – you start to manifest. There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

VIRGO

This week brings a new burst of energy in your professional life as the New Moon takes place in your Career Zone. How you should use this depends on how things have been for you at work recently. If you're one of the Virgos who has been working too hard, you can use this restart as a time of deciding that you will not send work yourself too hard any more. And if you need to work harder, made the commitment. There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

LIBRA

Where do you want to go? What would you like to study? How would you like to broaden your horizons? This week the energies are all about you taking a wider view or life and the world. If you're travelling, you're doing it at the right time. What you learn now will stand you in good stead, whether you're off to somewhere new or you're staying home and ready or studying or even watching educational videos. Relationship-wise it could be tricky! There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

If you've been working hard on your finances and/or on your sex life, don't stop now! You're actually about to get a boost from the Universe now, thanks to the New Moon and sex and success planet Mars both cruising through your 8th House. That's the part of your chart which is all about sex and money. If you are bold when it comes to finances and intimacies this week, the Universe will support you, so chase your dreams with vigour.

SAGITTARIUS

One relationship that has been draining you should get a new lease of life this week, as the New Moon does its annual firing up of your Love Zone. If you are single and think love would make a nice distraction from the trials of life, use this week to draw a line under the past and expect something new. Write a letter to your future partner. Attached? You and your beloved can turn the corner now if things have been rough. There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

CAPRICORN

If life isn't ticking over smoothly, this week could change that. The New Moon energy is focused in your 6th House of Daily Work and Health. That means this week brings your annual chance to more or less rewrite your daily routines and perhaps even your job description. Do be honest with yourself about where you're not looking after yourself. Make changes. If your health has been suffering, this week could see you turn the corner. Complimentary therapies are advised now. There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

AQUARIUS

One of your biggest lessons this year (and last) is about learning who your friends really are. As an Aquarian, you will often relate really well to larger groups of people but less so to friends one on one. However, one on one relationships are important. This year has shown you how far you can go with your friends, who is really there for you and which friendships and relationships you need to work harder on. Start doing that extra hard work.

PISCES

It's time for you to have something of a restart with one or a few members of your family, or with the person or people you live with. In fact, thanks to angry Mars in your 4th House of Home, you may have been a little aggressive with the people you're close to lately. If so, this week brings the chance to say sorry and move on. Financially if things are tight, don't panic! You need to focus on solutions (not problems). There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.
