Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

A re­la­tion­ship or busi­ness mat­ter that you have failed to deal with is now de­mand­ing your at­ten­tion. Set to and get it out of the way so that you are free of the worry. Some­times you pre­tend to be tough but it is not al­ways so. A fresh start takes the weight from your shoul­ders. Be de­ter­mined not to let his­tory re­peat it­self. Hav­ing got out of a tricky sit­u­a­tion, stay out of it! Your Luck: Bore­dom can lead to bad de­ci­sions at the week­end.

Capri­corn De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 20

Give some real at­ten­tion to loved ones this week. Cer­tainly don’t waste your time on things that can­not be changed. Spend only what you can af­ford so as to avoid worry later. A bit of bar­ter­ing at the week­end sees you get­ting a real deal. Part­ners can seem ar­gu­men­ta­tive and it is not al­ways a good thing to tell them ev­ery­thing. Your Luck: Sit­u­a­tions come and go this week so stop wor­ry­ing about some­thing that may never hap­pen.

Tau­rus April 21 – May 21

Even when things are go­ing well, there is a yearn­ing for knowl­edge. This is one of the rea­sons why your sign can be so suc­cess­ful in busi­ness and per­sonal re­la­tion­ships. Right now, though, there are mo­ments when you feel a bit lost. Feed your mind and well­be­ing by do­ing some­thing to help oth­ers with­out be­ing asked. Your Luck: Us­ing some of your tal­ents to show oth­ers the way ahead brings the kind of sat­is­fac­tion that you cur­rently crave.


Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23

A step in the right di­rec­tion and out of a rut is what the aim should be. With lots of en­ergy around it should not be wasted on old bat­tles and failed plans. Some­times you know ex­actly what to do and yet fail to do it. This can be a week of de­ter­mi­na­tion and progress. What you need right now is a one-track mind. Your Luck: Give your­self the lux­ury of be­ing in charge and push­ing through to what you re­ally want.

Aquar­ius Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19

Love and re­la­tion­ships take cen­tre stage right now. Cer­tainly you are firmly in the lime­light and in charge of a sit­u­a­tion. Keep hu­mour in the mix when dragged into a pre­ma­ture dis­cus­sion. Those who want im­me­di­ate de­ci­sions will be dis­ap­pointed. How­ever, you need to give some clues as to your in­ten­tions. You, as much as oth­ers, know that things can change all the time. Your Luck: Be fair but avoid a strong com­mit­ment while things are un­sure.

Gem­ini May 22 – June 21

Look­ing to show­case your tal­ents and abil­i­ties? This is a great time as peo­ple are more re­cep­tive to new thoughts. You have to be hun­gry for suc­cess and show it by be­ing en­thu­si­as­tic. This is es­pe­cially true if you want oth­ers to help or ad­vise you. As peo­ple in author­ity or with the right re­sources look at you, let them see you at your best. Your Luck: Be­ing your­self is more im­por­tant than you may think.


Oc­tover 24 - Novem­ber 22

Some­times, just when you are mak­ing good progress, an­other set­back comes along. This week is no ex­cep­tion but (and it is a big but) you now see these as an op­por­tu­nity to tri­umph. With the right per­son be­hind you it seems that the sky is the limit! In tak­ing charge and ask­ing for what you want there is the sense of self-con­fi­dence that was lack­ing of late. Your Luck: There is a change in your mood and at­ti­tude that bodes well for the fu­ture.


Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20

Feel­ing im­pa­tient again? Want ev­ery­thing done and dusted right away? It just is not go­ing to hap­pen, so chill out! Aim to be in the right place at the right time to bump into some­one who you ad­mire. Just see­ing them can give a fresh start to your op­ti­mism. Af­ter all, isn’t any­thing pos­si­ble? Be­ing in the right place can mean just stay­ing where you are. The only dif­fer­ence could be the peo­ple around you. Your Luck: Are those around you the right ones?

Can­cer June 22 – July 22

It could be hard to agree with oth­ers this week. The rea­son is be­cause you seem de­ter­mined to do some­thing ei­ther strange or out­ra­geous. How­ever, your in­stinct tells you that it is a case of ‘now or never’. The chances are that if you ask some­one’s opin­ion, you won’t like what they have to say. Feel­ing stub­born but lucky? An un­usual sit­u­a­tion and train of thought have led you to this place. Your Luck: Good luck. En­joy the feel­ing of free­dom.

Sagit­tar­ius Novem­ber 23 - De­cem­ber 21

In or­der to get what you want from a part­ner this week you need to be will­ing to com­pro­mise. That is not al­ways easy, es­pe­cially if you know that it will cause de­lays. Have some pa­tience and be sure that they know all the facts. How­ever, maybe these should not come from you! A sub­tle ap­proach is needed and, if you can­not do this, get some­one to do it for you. Your Luck: Be pre­pared to ac­cept some changes with grace.


March 21 – April 20

It seems that your imag­i­na­tion is work­ing over­time this week. All sorts of fan­ci­ful ideas come and go, most of them im­prac­ti­cal to say the least! This, maybe, shows a search for some­thing that you feel is miss­ing in your cur­rent life. Think about where you would like to be and what you would like to be do­ing in, say, five years’ time. Your Luck: Look­ing fur­ther into the fu­ture can give clue to what you should be do­ing right now.

Leo July 23 – Au­gust 23

Rather than look at some­thing as be­ing im­pos­si­ble, see it as be­ing a chal­lenge. Some­times we have to test our abil­i­ties in or­der to gain con­fi­dence in them. Who knows, in act­ing with great con­fi­dence you may well gain great con­fi­dence. What is spurring you on? Is it the knowl­edge of lost op­por­tu­ni­ties in the past? It is as good a rea­son as many. Your Luck: Some­one who has in­spired you is keep­ing their fin­gers crossed!
