VIRGO 24 AU­GUST – 23 SEPTEM­BER

If tempted to voice your con­cerns about some­body else’s in­tegrity or du­bi­ous way of work­ing, do so be­fore 13 Au­gust, when Mer­cury starts mov­ing back­wards un­til 5 Septem­ber. There’s a chance you’ll be seen as a whistle­blower and you must present the facts as clearly and con­sci­en­tiously as pos­si­ble.

LIBRA 24 SEPTEM­BER – 23 OC­TO­BER

Obli­ga­tions to fam­ily or friends must not be al­lowed to impinge on your own en­joy­ment or peace of mind. Don’t al­low one or two peo­ple in par­tic­u­lar to use bul­ly­ing tac­tics or emo­tional black­mail in or­der to ma­nip­u­late you into a sit­u­a­tion that suits them much more than it suits you.

SCORPIO 24 OC­TO­BER – 22 NOVEM­BER

As you de­duce that peo­ple close by have en­coun­tered fairly se­ri­ous prob­lems, you might won­der whether to of­fer ad­vice. Be care­ful be­cause early in Au­gust, a Jupiter-Pluto con­flict could make oth­ers think you are be­ing pa­tro­n­is­ing rather than act­ing out of gen­uine con­cern. Don’t make a move un­til you are sure of your ground.

SAGITTARIUS 23 NOVEM­BER – 21 DE­CEM­BER

Com­ments over­heard or mis­in­ter­preted by oth­ers could cause prob­lems un­less some­body steps in and points out the se­ri­ous mis­takes be­ing made. Since no one else is likely to want that re­spon­si­bil­ity, you may as well ac­cept that you’re the one for the job. Act fast and refuse to let it be­come a long, drawn-out bur­den on you.

CAPRICORN 22 DE­CEM­BER – 20 JAN­UARY

Fairly valu­able re­sources could be at the root of a prob­lem be­tween cer­tain peo­ple you know well. Although you shouldn’t as­sume you can find an in­stant so­lu­tion, you may be the one to per­suade those in­volved that they’re miss­ing out on a tremen­dous amount be­cause of an un­nec­es­sary rift or sep­a­ra­tion.

AQUARIUS 21 JAN­UARY – 19 FE­BRU­ARY

You may won­der whether it’s best not to take a col­league or busi­ness as­so­ciate at face value when dis­cussing a trans­ac­tion that re­quires trust and in­tegrity on both sides. Ob­vi­ously, cau­tion is called for. But un­til you have proof that some­thing’s go­ing awry, you should keep your sus­pi­cions to your­self. This is a sen­si­tive sit­u­a­tion.

PISCES 20 FE­BRU­ARY – 20 MARCH

Try to work steadily through a se­ries of daunt­ing tasks and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties that, rightly or wrongly, have been placed in your care. Set your­self an ap­prox­i­mate dead­line of 21 Au­gust, when a so­lar eclipse could cre­ate so many dis­trac­tions that it be­comes vir­tu­ally im­pos­si­ble for you to fo­cus on what needs to be done.

ARIES 21 MARCH – 20 APRIL

Refuse to kow-tow to those who as­sume the right to ad­vise you on pro­fes­sional or pri­vate mat­ters. These in­di­vid­u­als might in­sist that they mean well but if you give them the slight­est taste of power, they’ll try to dic­tate your ev­ery move. Stand up to them and adopt a no-non­sense tone from the out­set.

TAURUS 21 APRIL – 21 MAY

Hav­ing hid­den your feel­ings with re­gard to op­por­tu­ni­ties within some chal­leng­ing ter­ri­tory, you need to change tack. The lu­nar eclipse on 7 Au­gust will act as a trigger for you to in­form those in au­thor­ity of how much you have to of­fer a sit­u­a­tion that you’re sure has your name writ­ten all over it.

GEM­INI 22 MAY – 21 JUNE

De­ci­sions taken on the home or fam­ily front should be made con­crete in the first half of the month. En­cour­age loved ones to col­lab­o­rate with you and bring about changes that are long over­due. If you de­lay for too long, you’ll find that other is­sues will crop up, leav­ing you feel­ing frus­trated and re­sent­ful.

CANCER 22 JUNE – 23 JULY

Although you don’t want to ap­pear dic­ta­to­rial, you must as­sert your au­thor­ity within your ev­ery­day sur­round­ings. Think in terms of an iron fist in a vel­vet glove: En­sure that noth­ing you say or do can be in­ter­preted as out­right ag­gres­sion, but in­form oth­ers of how im­por­tant it is that you sup­port one an­other.
