August 24 – September 23 As you try to take care of some vulnerable people or extremely complex situations you’ll discover problems which, initially, cannot be solved. But you mustn’t assume everything is much harder than it needs to be. Things are about to change. Get a realistic view of where you stand and who is alongside you to help. Mantra of the month Better whole than patched in gold.
September 24 – October 23 Some aspects of your work or financial affairs crave attention but there’s a danger you’ll be distracted by something more pleasant. You’re about to see developments affecting loved ones through different eyes. Tell yourself they’ll have to wait. Don’t let sentiment rather than common sense dictate your decisions. Mantra of the month If there’s no wind, one must row.
October 24 – November 22 Brilliant ideas will flood your mind, which may be a source of irritation to colleagues or companions who feel intimidated by you. Make it obvious that you’re not willing to battle them. Instead, appear rational and reasonable while you focus on your work or a project that does justice to your talents. Mantra of the month It’s a flawed plan that cannot be changed.
November 23 – December 21 Don’t worry if the books don’t quite balance. Money’s coming in and going out, and you can rely on instinct to warn you when things aren’t right. If people become judgmental you’ll know how to react, especially with Mercury, the planet of communications, taking up a potent position in your chart. Mantra of the month A great void can exist between saying and doing.
December 22 – January 20 If you let your own life be overshadowed by the problems of others you will resent it. Yes, occasionally you’ll have to drop everything to avert a crisis impacting others. But ordinary, everyday upsets shouldn’t need your expert touch. Try dropping hints that certain people need to take better care of themselves. Mantra of the month Some may fall by the sword but many more from greed.
June 22 – July 23 Focus on your own performance and leave others to get on with theirs. If you’re constantly looking over your shoulder you’ll waste time and energy. Venus entering your sign in mid-August means you’ll see how to collude with others, without hounding them. As well as your output and reputation to consider there are close relationships, too. Mantra of the month Let your pillow be your counselor.
January 21 – February 19 Put a professional or financial dilemma aside while the dust settles. Loved ones are about to feel angry or confused because you’ve seemed so one-track minded. Around mid-August as your mind clears you should reflect on how close you’ve come to jeopardising special relationships. Prepare to make amends. Mantra of the month Many will hate you if you love yourself too much.
February 20 – March 20 Take time to be with someone special. Everyone needs to accept that if you do go missing briefly, there’s a valid reason. And a Mercury-Saturn clash on August 9 will urge you to slip back into place and regain control over work or other obligations. Just remember that any hint of smugness will let you down. Mantra of the month Distrust quickly poisons friendship.
March 21 – April 20 The attention you pay to routine matters will show you in a good light. As a result, some important people will express an interest in you and what you can do. Gradually you’ll begin to understand why you are so much in demand. However, it’s not wise to respond immediately. Keep your options open. Mantra of the month Success can make the fool seem wise.
April 21 – May 21 Try not to resent certain individuals throwing in ideas of their own which at first seem irrelevant. You’re about to create such a positive atmosphere around you that others will react exactly the way you like. So just be patient. The Mercury-Uranus link on August 8 will prove that temporary blips are just that. Mantra of the month Enough provides great wealth.
May 22 – June 21 Has your sense of justice made you feel ambivalent towards those being uncaring? You’ll soon see proof that you’re in the hands of people who aren’t deliberately unkind – they simply don’t know any better. Teach them where they’re going wrong. But don’t be so brutal that there can be no going back. Mantra of the month Sour grapes never made sweet wine.
June 22 – July 23 Time is at a premium so stop taking on commitments which have little to offer you. Somebody who knows you well will agree that you should have done it long ago. If you put a lot into involvements you enjoy they’ll bring in healthy profits. Head towards a different territory in which you can shine. Mantra of the month More cost equals to more worship.
