Week beginning October 1
Libra (September 23 - October 23)
Libran tempers aren’t easily riled, but when angered your words can cut to the quick. A protective cosmos, too, reprimands those who have wronged you. Vindictive friends or family should be shown the door; with Librans ready to prove that they can go it alone.
Scorpio (October 24 - November 22)
Once again, your intriguing genius is at odds with some of the zodiac’s more grounded souls, and this often means feeling excluded. Then again, there are very few ideas that aren’t shared somewhere in the cosmos - so it’s up to you to find like-minded people.
Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21)
Disappointment creeps into your week, and who can blame you? The heavens only know that you’ve tried every trick in the book to resolve recent problems - with little to show for it. Misunderstandings are rife - but you’re not ready to give up yet. This too, shall pass.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)
If there's one thing you know, it's that you’re a survivor. Even when times are tough, most Capricorns maintain their ambition and optimism. Both tremendous assets that work to your advantage - making this a work-hard, play-hard kind of week. Enjoy all that’s ahead.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)
Someone made you a promise, but they’ve been suspiciously quiet. Don’t fret - you’ll soon know why. Indeed, you’ll be amazed by the support offered. Don’t question why this is happening - just accept that you’re long overdue for a well-deserved reward.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Since the planets may be mischievous enough to conjure up an office romance, avoid flirting if you’re already attached. Tempting as it may be, giving in to your desires may come at too high a cost. But if single and fancy-free - go right ahead. Mix business with pleasure.
Aries (March 21 - April 20)
Relationships could benefit from an honest heart to heart. This week is all about growing closer and making joint plans. But if it’s a fresh start you’re after, speak truthfully. Leave no room for misinterpretation. Singles feel more adventurous, with an inclination towards travel.
Taurus (April 21 - May 20)
Should the week bring fluster or frustration, stay detached. Higher-ups are watching how the situation unfolds. Rise above petty conflicts, and you’ll soar over the competition. At week’s end, calm returns - along with a strong sense of self-worth. Your confidence grows.
Gemini (May 21 to June 21)
Generally, you’re clever at getting your message across. That’s because you were born with the gift of the gab, an asset which usually works to your advantage. Unfortunately, the chat lines are down right now. It seems no one’s willing to listen. Wait until the situation becomes clearer.
Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
This week your sassiness turns heads. If others start to resent your triumphs, ignore them. Most will cheer you on, but a few may feel threatened by your confidence. At home, relationships reach a new level of stability. New love stays on course; old love feels more fulfilling.
Leo (July 23 - August 23)
Do yourself a huge favour by remembering this: few are blessed with telepathy. Come to terms with this, and you’re left with the only obvious course of action. You’ll have to talk your problems through. No texts, no emails: but an old fashioned face to face chat.
Virgo (August 24 - September 22)
You have a reputation for conquering with words. Wry, dry humour is Virgo’s style. But if making light of other people’s quirks, don’t expect an appreciative audience. Sure, there are times when life deserves ridicule, but not everyone will get the joke.
