The week ahead with Adele Lang
Libra SEPT 24 – OCT 23
Your powers of attraction are at a peak, but don’t let such celestial blessings go to your head – there may be conflict galore on the romance front or for single Librans leading on a potential suitor. Harmless flirting is fine – but only take it further when you’re sure you know what you want.
Capricorn DEC 22 – JAN 20
Until Jupiter gets a move on later next week, your social life might be next to non-existent. This won’t bother you too much if you’re trying to keep a crazy work schedule under control. And there’s plenty to do on the home front. Carefree nights out with mates will just have to wait.
Aries MAR 21 – APRIL 20
Over the next seven days, try not to let others influence your decisions too much – unsolicited opinions could steer you off course. When it comes to an important matter at home or at work, trust your judgment. Friends, family or colleagues aren’t always right.
Cancer JUNE 22 – JULY 23
The planets want you to embark on some big-time decluttering this week. And yes, that does include people! You may be sentimental with hoarder-like tendencies, but you know deep-down that too many things are holding you back. So clear the way – literally – for a new start.
Scorpio OCT 24 – NOV 22
When it comes to energy-sapping domestic issues, the Moon’s not making life easy. This week, you need to play hardball with any partner, parent or pal who refuses to pull their weight. Sure, you want to keep such folk on your side, but avoiding confrontation isn’t the best way to go.
Aquarius JAN 21 – FEB 19
This stargazer hopes you don’t get up on your soapbox when a blood tie comes to you to discuss a shameful problem. A parent or sibling doesn’t need a lecture right now. Although it’s frustrating that they haven’t seen sense, try to be kind. Empathy will make all the difference.
Taurus APRIL 21 – MAY 21
If a romantic relationship is strained right now, ask yourself whether or not you’re partly to blame. It’s all well and good to put the onus on a partner to make more of an effort, but the same could be required of you, too. Small, thoughtful acts of kindness should be enough to see you through.
Leo JULY 24 – AUG 23
A lack of momentum at work might be sending you into a tailspin right now. But career planet Venus reckons you shouldn’t panic yet. Use the next seven days to plan what you can do to get out of your rut. Seeking advice from people in higher places could prove invaluable, too.
Sagittarius NOV 23 – DEC 21
Don’t expect everyone to welcome you with open arms this week – but try not to take offence at any snubs. Your amiable persistence might pay off. Plus, you can’t expect to bowl people over 24/7 – but at least you can walk away from an awkward situation knowing that you tried.
Pisces FEB 20 – MAR 20
Astro-trends are shining on your love life! Long-term relationships will experience some unexpected flashes of passion, and those of you on the singles scene could do worse than make the first move on someone you fancy. There’s a good chance your advances will be warmly received.
Gemini MAY 22 – JUNE 21
Solar activity makes you more aware of the wants and needs of younger people in your midst. Indeed, you’ll happily take charge if you think they’re in a bind. But don’t be overprotective – as you well know, learning from your mistakes is an important part of growing up.
Virgo AUG 24 – SEPT 23
The best way to boost your earning potential is through talking up a storm. People with deep pockets need to be convinced you’re passionate about whatever money-making scheme you have in mind. This week, Virgos who are prepared to shout loudest are the ones who will profit the most.
