LEO July 24 – August 23 You’re about to be touched by unusual gestures, having wondered why much of what you do goes unacknowledged.

Just know that if ever you’re in dire straits, certain people will be there for you. Mantra of the month The poor flask often contains fine wine.
VIRGO August 24 – September 23 Don’t make a mockery of a budget.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 20 As you take on other people’s duties and responsibilities you’ll realise that you’d rather spend the time with someone special.

AQUARIUS January 21 – February 19 Relax as ongoing responsibilities gradually become easier to manage.

GEMINI May 22 – June 21 Others have their pride, which is why they’re embarrassed about how much they lean on you.

Get rid of all pretensions. Mantra of the month If the leopard cannot change its spots, perhaps they can be rearranged.
