Week beginning August 12
Leo (July 23 - August 23)
Leos are the most vibrant and energetic of the zodiac signs. Ruled by the Sun, you radiate a warm, outgoing nature and never do anything by halves. You’re a born leader; an initiator – someone who loves to act, to do, to bring about change. But this week too much relentless ambition could be your downfall.
Virgo (August 24 - September 22)
Some describe you as a perfectionist, with negative implications saying that you’re too concerned with the trivial details of life. This isn’t true. You prefer to call it discrimination – in your mind, you need to be picky because not everything deserves your attention.
Libra (September 23 - October 23)
With buried tensions suddenly erupting, others may not find you as accommodating as usual. It’s a pragmatic week in which you must abandon ambitions that have been rendered obsolete. Although disappointing, getting rid of the old helps you aim for all that’s new and exciting. Those with the Sun in Scorpio are special, mostly because very few people understand you. Yours is the sign which commands the most awe and respect. Quietly mysterious, others should never underestimate your silent strength – particularly this week. You’re an optimist, born believing everything will work out fine. What’s more, you have the cheek of the devil, often embellishing your achievements – and usually getting away with it. Sometimes, though, you overstep the mark. Not so now. Sagittarian communication skills are first-class and you’re back in control. Capricorn is the sign that rules business, but it’s not just riches, power or success that you crave. You need to be recognised an individual who reaches their full potential. This week brings a life review. The value of friendship, the shelf life of dusty dreams and the repercussions of keeping emotions concealed are all issues that can be addressed. Aquarians now gain a professional advantage. By recognising avenues to profit, the chance for lucrative negotiations increase. As well as financial gain, there appears a growing need to broaden your horizons. Traditional interpretations say that yours is the sign of the mystic. You absorb energies that less intuitive signs miss, though this can make you particularly vulnerable to stress. Not this week. The basis for success is independence, and you’re now ready and capable of going it alone. The ability to “tune in” into almost any situation has always been your special gift but even more so now, as you interact in a way that impresses others.
Taurus (April 21 - May 20)
It’s time for a reality check, Taurus. Try to regain control, otherwise the cosmic forecast is for more upheaval. Have a little burning ceremony for any fading dreams that have already passed on.
Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
Routine is the natural enemy of the restless and vibrant Gemini. You’re always on the go, and this week blesses you with almost unlimited potential. Be prepared to ditch dead-end plans.
Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
It’s in your nature to save for a rainy day. Good news indeed, at a time when the focus falls on money. Romance features just as strongly, so why not mix business with pleasure?
Scorpio (October 24 - November 22) Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21)
