Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

Some­one who seeks your ad­vice just needs to take a step for­ward rather than be­ing stuck. As you are com­mu­ni­cat­ing on all cylin­ders, maybe you can help. This week can be all about get­ting your life in per­fect bal­ance. Change the things that need it. You can­not feel con­tented all the time, but those mo­ments that you do are worth their weight in gold. Seek them out and ap­pre­ci­ate them. Your Luck: Do it now rather than put it on your ‘to do’ list.

Capri­corn De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 20

Let your motto this week be ‘Think big but spend small’! That, cou­pled with a de­sire (and I do not use the word loosely) to spend time with some­one spe­cial could see you stay­ing home a lot. Find­ing it hard to get some pri­vacy? Walk­ing and talk­ing can turn into cud­dling and canoodling, which can­not be bad. Your Luck: De­mands on your time next week mean mak­ing the most of this re­lax­ing and in­spir­ing week­end.

Tau­rus April 21 – May 21

Get in­volved so­cially, es­pe­cially if it is some­thing new. A hobby could turn into a real earner! At work, the need to go over old ground can be ir­ri­tat­ing but you will find out how not to do it next time! We live and learn, that’s for sure. Giv­ing a spe­cial treat to a rel­a­tive brings back their smile. Crazy meet­ings with long-lost folk can take you by sur­prise (but prob­a­bly not now that I have told you!) Your Luck: Have some fun by talk­ing over old times.


Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23

Some­one is at­tracted to you be­cause of your happy and re­laxed at­ti­tude. That be­ing so, avoid get­ting se­ri­ous too quickly. In a very busy and pas­sion-filled week the ac­cent is on both plea­sure and work. The two should not be com­bined or it could cause im­me­di­ate con­fu­sion. Hav­ing to deal with too much pres­sure? In­stead of push­ing back this week, try to go with the flow. Your Luck: This pe­riod is short-lived, if te­dious and tir­ing!

Aquar­ius Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19

The ‘gift of the gab’ is yours this week, my friend! Make the most of that cheery per­son­al­ity. Join­ing in with group ac­tiv­i­ties makes you re­alise what fun it can be. Will this in­spire you to ar­range some reg­u­lar get­to­geth­ers? It seems that some­one wants to put you in charge. Others seem to see tal­ents in you that have per­haps been hid­den or ne­glected. Shall we dust them off? Your Luck: How do you feel about be­ing ‘top dog’?

Gem­ini May 22 – June 21

Try­ing some­thing new is great this week as long as you trust your in­stincts. Cash can run through your fin­gers if you don’t hold it tight! Love is yours if you only have the courage to tell some­one how you feel. Their re­sponse may be de­layed, so be pa­tient. If work is bor­ing, try to think ahead and make plans for the fu­ture. Are there ways that you could be more ef­fi­cient or make life eas­ier for others? Your Luck: Col­leagues seem lethar­gic.


Oc­tover 24 - Novem­ber 22

Feel­ing slug­gish? Don’t! Get that to-do list and shoot ahead! With a busy time both at home and work you could turn into a prize jug­gler. This is ad­mirable and only seems to feed more en­ergy into your sys­tem. Have the con­fi­dence to know that you can do it. Pas­sion­ate dis­cus­sions at home could re­volve round your time and money. Hold on to the lat­ter but give more of the for­mer. Your Luck: En­joy the mo­ment as one of achieve­ment.


Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20

You get off to a fly­ing start this week. Don’t worry, though, if things slow down at the week­end. Take the chance to have some fun! Say­ing the right thing at home can be very dif­fi­cult. Avoid giv­ing mixed mes­sages. It is bet­ter to be plain and hon­est. Love is not all you need but it can cer­tainly make life lighter. Don’t read too much into a warm smile, though. Your Luck: Do unto others and all that!

Cancer June 22 – July 22

Are plans go­ing in slow mo­tion? Bet­ter to rely on your­self rather than others. Some folk around you may be­come tetchy and awk­ward. Bet­ter to get on with some­thing or some­one else rather than get too in­volved. Will you be in the right place at the week­end to meet some­one new and re­fresh­ing? Try to make it hap­pen as it could be in an un­usual lo­ca­tion. Your Luck: The kind of pas­sion that you need has noth­ing to do with ar­gu­ing.

Sagit­tar­ius Novem­ber 23 - De­cem­ber 21

Pon­der­ing on your next move? Get­ting a sharp trot on could make all the dif­fer­ence. Those around you who wish to make a point could seem to be over­re­act­ing. Could their pas­sion for get­ting at­ten­tion be turned on its head? The more you give, the more they will take. Some­one needs you to be cool and ma­ture, what­ever your age. If that seems hard, do your best. Your Luck: Suc­ceed­ing in keep­ing your tem­per is a real suc­cess!


March 21 – April 20

You may not be in a very prac­ti­cal frame of mind. In­deed, mak­ing any long-term de­ci­sions, es­pe­cially about money, needs care­ful thought. Not so your love life, which seems to be go­ing swim­mingly. Take noth­ing in this area for granted, how­ever, as some­one needs a bit of pam­per­ing. Keep a good bal­ance be­tween work and home or they could feel ne­glected. Spend the week­end mak­ing mem­o­ries. Your Luck: Now, where is that cam­era?

July 23 – Au­gust 23 Leo

Get­ting closer to friends and col­leagues can be as sim­ple as just lis­ten­ing. You are not re­quired to find so­lu­tions, so don’t stress. Some­times ad­vice can be ac­cepted badly. Be­ing aware of that makes you wise. Much as you may want to please a loved one, if put un­der pres­sure don’t just cave! Pas­sion­ate en­coun­ters are great if they are for the right rea­sons. Any­thing else... swerve it! Your Luck: When others try to take ad­van­tage of you, give them the ben­e­fit of the doubt but walk away.
