July 24 – August 23 Work or ongoing responsibilities are likely to become more complicated than usual. Don’t be afraid to tackle people who seem keen on making your life more difficult. Use the extra dynamism provided by a Pluto-Mars clash early in the month to prove you’re anything but an easy target. Mantra of the month Ingratitude sickens benevolence.
August 24 – September 23 Those expecting you to come out fighting when faced with a challenge are about to see a different side of you. Circumstances will force you to admit that you can achieve a lot more by adopting a conciliatory approach, especially with people who enjoy seeing sparks fly. Why not spoil their fun? Mantra of the month If you’re making no mistakes, it’s unlikely you’re making anything.
September 24 – October 23 You’re right to resent someone casting doubts over the way you manage your home or family. Perhaps, you’ll even assert yourself pretty vigorously.

October 24 – November 22 With so much cosmic energy flooding a crucially important sector of your chart, you might think you’re obliged to take on everybody’s problems and fight their battles. One particular facet of your own life is far more important. You’re allowed to put yourself first at times like these. Mantra of the month A bad word whispered will echo a hundred miles.
November 23 – December 21 Respond positively to those calling on you to inject colour and creativity into a set-up that’s becoming dull or mundane.

Mantra of the month Old wounds are easily reopened.
December 22 – January 20 If a much-wanted deal or arrangement gets off to a slow start, you must be patient. By pushing too hard, you’ll be in danger of antagonising those involved and you could end up losing out. News arriving fairly late in the month should provide you with a new and different take on the situation. Mantra of the month Necessity unites hearts.
January 21 – February 19 From the beginning of the month, you may wonder why a relationship or formal set-up is making you anxious. Much should be revealed after July 9 under the influence of the Capricorn Full Moon, and you’ll be able to decide what is worth worrying about, which can be empowering. Mantra of the month If you can talk, you can sing. If you can walk, you can dance.
February 20 – March 20 No one needs to tell you how little self-care you practise. Deep down, you know that a period of rest and self-indulgence is overdue. You might invent all sorts of reasons as to why it’s impossible to slow down, but who are you kidding, especially if you can make time for everything and everybody else. Mantra of the month Reality is good for you—in small doses.
March 21 – April 20 Loved ones or friends may hide their feelings regarding a situation with which you’re closely involved. Don’t keep pushing for explanations as you don’t want to irritate them at a time when you have more important things to think about. Tell yourself they’re playing a game and let go. Mantra of the month Cheerful company shortens the miles.
April 21 – May 21 Holidays and travel ventures will be under discussion, but so too will the opportunity to enhance aspects of your home life. Someone with a hidden agenda may try to manipulate you into making a decision that goes against your best instincts. Don’t do it. Your judgment is to be trusted. Mantra of the month The best answer to anger is silence.
May 22 – June 21 People may assume you’re fully acquainted with restrictions on financial or business wheelings. However, around July 10, developments might make everyone realise that nothing is as straightforward. Dredge up every relevant detail and ensure that you’re operating on safe ground. Mantra of the month Love is a moment that lasts for ever.
