Be­ing a fire sign, you are able to take ac­tion rel­a­tively eas­ily

– al­though you may tend to be im­pul­sive and make rash moves. Luck­ily, this week, you should find the go­ing fairly straight-for­ward – as long as you avoid con­flict and reck­less­ness, es­pe­cially at home and re­gard­ing ne­go­ti­a­tions. A mat­ter to do with your past, work or health will merit care and at­ten­tion. The Sun and Mars in Leo will cer­tainly mo­ti­vate you to try a new ap­proach in your per­sonal life – and for some, at work. If your usual at­ti­tude in these ar­eas has sim­ply not worked, it is now time for some­thing new. How­ever, your en­ergy and mo­ti­va­tion may be mis­taken as bravado and ar­ro­gance by those who know you less well, so show your charm­ing side, too, to avoid mix-ups. Be­ing a dy­namic char­ac­ter, you are al­ways ready to rise to the oc­ca­sion. This week’s events will ask that you step up to help some­one, ei­ther at work, with a health or a fam­ily mat­ter. Luck­ily, you’ll be in a po­si­tion to help. If there is a dif­fer­ence of opin­ions about what is the right thing to do; about what is fair and just, avoid tak­ing ran­dom com­ments per­son­ally; aim for a so­lu­tion. Can you charm ev­ery­one into see­ing things your way? Prob­a­bly not, but you can lead by ex­am­ple, and show oth­ers less gifted than you in the art of per­sua­sion, that the wis­dom of your way is fault­less. How­ever, it’s im­por­tant to avoid be­ing force­ful or feel­ing pres­sured; dis­agree­ments will es­ca­late. If you owe money or a favour, pay it back as soon as pos­si­ble to avoid re­sent­ment. Your fo­cus may change in your in­ner cir­cle; per­haps some­one moves away and you must ap­proach those you know with a new at­ti­tude; or some­one new en­ters your cir­cle, for ex­am­ple. You’ll find, in any case, that an up­beat, friendly at­ti­tude will work won­ders, es­pe­cially when dis­agree­ments at work or at home threaten to dis­turb your peace of mind – or that of oth­ers. As a prac­ti­cal, re­al­is­tic and me­thod­i­cal per­son, you like to take things step by step in your ar­range­ments with oth­ers.

How­ever, this week, it seems you may be un­der pres­sure to de­cide upon a course of ac­tion, or to side with some­one – ei­ther at work or at home. How will you get ahead most di­plo­mat­i­cally? You’re al­lowed to change your mind; just be sure it’s what you want.


A cir­cum­stance that puts you in a new light may seem a lit­tle out­side your com­fort zone and yet, if you stick with your ideas, you could make great progress this week, es­pe­cially in your re­la­tion­ships and col­lab­o­ra­tions, such as those at work. Avoid be­liev­ing you’re al­ways right – but, by the same to­ken, trust that you are right when you are. Have the courage of your con­vic­tions.


Your sign’s ruler, Venus will come into a harsh as­pect with Wounded Healer Ch­i­ron, sug­gest­ing you may be asked to help some­one, or may ben­e­fit from sup­port your­self. Some­one close may be sur­pris­ingly help­ful to you. If your health has been un­der the weather, this is a good week to spend time shoring up your well­be­ing and fit­ness. Avoid: con­flict at work or at home.


Your sign’s ruler, Uranus, will turn ret­ro­grade this week, sug­gest­ing some events may lead you to re­con­sider how you feel about do­mes­tic, fam­ily and prop­erty-re­lated mat­ters. If you’re par­tic­u­larly spir­i­tual, you may ex­pe­ri­ence an en­light­en­ing or rein­vig­o­rat­ing event. A change of pace could be ideal. Avoid al­low­ing a dis­agree­ment to dent your self-es­teem; be bold.


Work will take you places this week; it’s a case of be­ing on the ball and ac­cept­ing that, some­times, life is ei­ther su­per-busy, or it serves up a lemon. If you feel you have in some way been let down con­sider that, in ac­tual fact, events in your life will mo­ti­vate you to do some­thing re­fresh­ingly dif­fer­ent. This will of­fer an op­por­tu­nity to en­ter new ter­ri­tory. Rise to the chal­lenge.


Key dis­cus­sions this week, es­pe­cially to do with health, work or fi­nances, are best nav­i­gated care­fully, as there is the po­ten­tial for mis­un­der­stand­ings and/or frayed tem­pers, es­pe­cially this week­end and to­wards Thurs­day. This aside, the more ac­tion you take to pur­sue the path and goals you’ve set your­self, the bet­ter for you. If not, those around you may sim­ply take charge.


Con­sider whether, in the past, you have pro­cras­ti­nated, or have even avoided tak­ing di­rect or spon­ta­neous ac­tion - pre­fer­ring, in­stead, to con­sider your op­tions care­fully and per­haps for a long time. This week, though, the key to suc­cess lies in trust­ing that the ac­tions you will take will be for the best. Trust your gut in­stinct to gain di­rec­tion, es­pe­cially at work and health-wise.
