De­cem­ber 22 - Jan­uary 21

There are an­noy­ing blips at work this week. At home, how­ever, you are more likely to en­counter flashes of love and support. Quite a good bal­ance re­ally. This week holds a few sur­prises but no re­grets. You know where you are and where you are go­ing and that is some­thing of a bless­ing, isn’t it? Stress turns into suc­cess as you learn to re­lax.


April 21 – May 21

Some­one whose fi­nances are linked with your own could need help. Keep a sense of what is de­sir­able and prac­ti­cal. Plan­ning ahead can en­able you to see the wave be­fore it hits your bridge. Maybe, though, it will sim­ply wash over you and do no harm. Why take the chance? Step aside rather than ig­nor­ing it or run­ning away. A cer­tain amount of re­think­ing your love life seems nec­es­sary.


Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

A sud­den change in your fi­nances may lead you to be tempted to spend when you should hold back. There could be bet­ter op­por­tu­ni­ties around the cor­ner than the one that you are con­sid­er­ing. What is hap­pen­ing in your ro­man­tic life is noth­ing short of amaz­ing. Keep this love flow­ing dur­ing what is sure to be a very busy time for you.


Jan­uary 21 - Fe­bru­ary 19

With a sharp mind this week you are able to take a good look at what is hap­pen­ing around you. Hav­ing just reached a goal there is the chance to re­lax a lit­tle more at home. This lull be­fore the fes­tiv­i­ties gives you just the chance to plan your next suc­cess. Of course, putting it into ac­tion may have to wait for a few weeks! Work with oth­ers wher­ever pos­si­ble.


May 22 – June 23

Ad­mi­ra­tion comes from a stranger and sets you think­ing. Where would you be if you had made a few dif­fer­ent de­ci­sions? By look­ing back we can en­sure that we don’t make the same mis­takes twice. Even so, the only way now is for­ward, us­ing your best foot! Things will set­tle down again. Who said life was en­tirely pre­dictable? An astrologer?


Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23

Work­ing closely with oth­ers is more at­trac­tive to you if it is a so­cial mat­ter. When ex­pected to do the same with some­one from work, how­ever, you are less com­fort­able. Per­haps you can side­step this is­sue rather than give an out­right re­fusal? Re­mem­ber that not telling some­one about an in­ci­dent can be as bad as telling them a di­rect lie.


Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20

Be­ing in a very down-to-earth mood, it may seem to you that a lot of fuss is be­ing made about the forth­com­ing hol­i­day. Con­sider, though, how this time of the year gives you the chance to be­come nearer to fam­ily and friends. The ben­e­fits of ef­fort made now will carry on through to the next year. Can you re­ally af­ford to miss that?


June 24 – July 23

Se­cure in the knowl­edge that you have done your best in a cer­tain sit­u­a­tion, stop fret­ting. Con­cen­trate on keep­ing your eyes on all the balls you have in the air. If things get too much, could you let one of them fall? Last in, first out may not be the an­swer. Think care­fully. Go­ing for a long walk can be amaz­ingly help­ful. In what prom­ises to be a lucky week you can hedge your bets both at home and so­cially.


Oc­to­ber 24 – Novem­ber 22

The close­ness of loved ones and the up­com­ing fes­tiv­i­ties make you feel like splash­ing out. How­ever, keep your wa­ter wings off for a bit longer and you could bag some bar­gains. It is pos­si­ble to take ad­van­tage of a change at work to put for­ward a propo­si­tion. Con­sider that if you don’t do it, the chances are that some­one else will!


March 21 – April 20

In your en­thu­si­asm you may hurry things this week. It is tempt­ing to rush ahead when you see the bus com­ing. Get­ting on the bus can seem more im­por­tant than where the bus is go­ing. Now is the time to be fussy about where life is tak­ing you. Ac­cept­ing any of­fers of a sec­ond best na­ture is not for you. Stay calm in the face of changes and give your­self time to think.


July 24 – Au­gust 23

You will be glad to see the re­wards of mak­ing a so­cial ef­fort. Some months ago you were con­sid­er­ing forg­ing ahead alone. By en­list­ing the help of oth­ers you have helped in many ways to lessen your load. Co­op­er­a­tion can mean get­ting off to a slower start but, re­ally, it can get you to a bet­ter place in the end. Don’t lower your stan­dards this week, but be a lit­tle more for­giv­ing.


Novem­ber 23 – De­cem­ber 21

A ro­man­tic surge is about to pull on your heart­strings and play a merry tune with your emo­tions. Know­ing this you can clear the ground of any petty mat­ters so as to spend more time with a loved one. At work be sure that you know the dif­fer­ence be­tween two pos­si­ble ap­proaches. Go­ing at some­thing with a bull­dozer will get it done and over quickly. A gen­tler ap­proach will get you to the same place but with bet­ter
