Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

Lov­ing emo­tions mix with past re­grets as this week be­gins. By the end of the week, when the so­lar eclipse comes, you see a new way for­ward. In the mean­time it is im­por­tant to talk about what you want to change in the fu­ture. Talk also about what you would have changed in the past. See it as clear­ing out the clut­ter in your mind! A friend who un­der­stands will lis­ten. Your Luck: Peo­ple who change their minds are an­noy­ing. Maybe they are as un­sure as you are?

Capricorn De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 20

Be ab­so­lutely fo­cused this week. Go for what you want to change with de­ter­mi­na­tion and drive. The so­lar eclipse at the week­end her­alds fresh starts and tak­ing con­trol. Clear out the garage or at­tic, clear out your hang-ups from the past. A fresh start should mean a re­freshed mind. Take a few days away if pos­si­ble. Side­step emo­tional is­sues that can­not be changed. Your Luck: Steer clear of any at­tempts to make you change course. Ahead is the way.

Taurus April 21 – May 21

Be­ing in con­trol this week means hav­ing to ‘take the bull by the horns’. As you are a Tau­rean that means con­trol­ling your own ac­tions. A lon­grun­ning dis­pute can now be put to bed. This means be­ing flex­i­ble and, maybe, for­giv­ing. Think of this not so much as step­ping down as step­ping up. With Venus on your side, this should be just one more lov­ing ges­ture. Your Luck: Know­ing what you want brings you quickly to a place where you are com­fort­able and at home.


Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23

Some­thing about your cur­rent sit­u­a­tion may soon change, giv­ing rise to mixed feel­ings. How­ever, there seems lit­tle choice. Re­mem­ber, though, that what you can­not change now can of­ten be changed in the fu­ture. Be op­ti­mistic about fi­nances and take charge. Even usu­ally im­pos­si­ble peo­ple seem to be more help­ful this week. Give their sug­ges­tions an au­di­ence. Your Luck: Be charm­ing at the week­end when a friend will be able to help on an emo­tional is­sue.

Aquarius Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19

Some­times you are far too mod­est. This week­ends New Moon high­lights what you have achieved since the New Year. You can never be com­pletely sat­is­fied be­cause you are a per­fec­tion­ist. Even so, even you must agree that things have changed for the bet­ter. Ev­ery cloud has a sil­ver lin­ing they say. Yours could even be golden! Keep any travel plans sim­ple. Your Luck: Ro­mance and work may have to mix come Fri­day. Could a happy meal be the an­swer?

Gemini May 22 – June 21

This week you come to re­alise that work done in the past was worth­while. There have been times when you won­dered if it re­ally was worth the ef­fort. Now you know. The So­lar Eclipse at the week­end could lead you to take risks just for fun. Not a good idea. Re­ally! You will do re­ally well on the ro­mance stakes, though. Venus is hot on your trail and set­ting emo­tions free. Your Luck: Be­ing spon­ta­neous and op­ti­mistic brings a loved one to your side. Make this a spe­cial week­end.


Oc­to­ber 24 – Novem­ber 22

The last of this year’s so­lar eclipses comes along at the week­end and shines a light on past ef­forts. Time now to re­alise how far you have come since the New Year. If praise is due, ac­cept it grace­fully. Re­ally, some­times you are far too mod­est! Ef­forts to bring in more cash can go well, es­pe­cially if you are clear­ing out that at­tic or garage! Get friends to help. Your Luck: Love is all around you but you do have to tap into it. Get out and about for fun.


Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20

Hav­ing fun is def­i­nitely on the cards this week! All you have to do is try not to break the bank when do­ing it. The New Moon and so­lar eclipse at the week­end is a dou­ble whammy for you. It high­lights new plans and new ro­mances. You do not have to make changes but there is a strong in­cen­tive to move ahead. Be brave and bold but have a strong plan to stick to. Your Luck: Try hard not to be too change­able, es­pe­cially where younger and older peo­ple are con­cerned.

Can­cer June 22 – July 22

As fi­nances are high­lighted this week­end it could be that a sit­u­a­tion comes to a head in this area. So, be­ing fore­warned you can now take charge and con­trol it. Hav­ing got that out of the way you will have time for some fun. This is the right mo­ment to rekin­dle your love life and bring peo­ple to­gether. Any­one with a long-run­ning dis­pute should be flex­i­ble and clear the air. Your Luck: Sud­denly you feel able to ex­press your emo­tions and be hon­est and open. This is good.

Sagittarius Novem­ber 23 – De­cem­ber 21

In a week of meet­ings and ro­mance it would be just too easy to over­spend. So look for free out­door ac­tiv­i­ties for you and your loved one. The New Moon at the week­end is urg­ing you to make good on a prom­ise to move on with a re­la­tion­ship. This gives a chance to free your mind and re­duce your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to the past. Be­ing kind makes for bet­ter feel­ings than just be­ing prac­ti­cal. Your Luck: An open-minded at­ti­tude shows sev­eral ways to tackle fi­nances.


March 21 – April 20

A re­cent set­back may have put your teeth on edge. Even so, put that be­hind you and move on. Give your at­ten­tion to those who de­serve it. The so­lar eclipse as the week comes to a close brings an im­por­tant meet­ing. Some­one is in a po­si­tion to help you along with a new plan or long-held am­bi­tion. Be one step ahead when it comes to know­ing your sub­ject. Con­fi­dence is king! Your Luck: Al­though you love ex­cite­ment, don’t go over­board with risky ac­tiv­i­ties. Think twice.
