23 Aug – 22 Sept
A little light relief peppers the deadline drama more often than not, giving you space to introspect over a cuppa. We tend to forget our real selves as we frenzy about being involved, loving partners, colleagues and community gals. Stop the bus regularly now for a spot of contemplation, plenty of power naps and solitude. Your soul needs a hug, and yes, someone else can take charge for once.
22 Dec – 19 Jan
Typically, you’ve wrapped up a lot well ahead of time, though you’re still wearing ‘serious face’ and feeling focused, as usual. Things really have gone well this year, despite some hairpin bends on the road to goal fulfilment. Your social milieu could do with a facelift, as work-life balance is key to continuing the energy flow and avoiding burnout. A leisurely brunch with the ones you love will do the trick.
20 Apr – 20 May
Your ability to behave like a boss shapes up smartly. Use power and influence wisely, as people are watching (and learning). Most important, now, is to dust off your principles and apply them strictly to all life areas. Focus on honesty, punctuality, self-discipline, balance and mutual respect. This gently sidesteps any potential conflicts and gives your social rep added bling. Libra
23 Sept – 22 Oct
Chance meetings, minor windfalls, spiffing new career opportunities and a crack at self-improvement are likely happy events circling your orbit for several weeks. Enjoy, but pay attention to expansion – of skills, at work or in the home. The urge to grow is strong, so if you’re thinking about starting something new, then please do. This time next year you’ll be ultra-impressed with what you’ve achieved.
20 Jan – 18 Feb
Ruled by the air element, you’re a natural communicator, so make your demands felt. If a decision benefits both parties you’re less likely to foster bad mojo, so drum up a democratic spirit and try to find the middle ground during negotiations, discussions and disputes. Fact is, you can get what you want quite easily, but the method matters most. Why sow dissent when you can make friends instead?
21 May – 20 Jun
A bit of quiet time and less dashing about reap long-term rewards during this introspective phase. Question marks pop up around goals, grownup decisions and desperate desires, but act slowly – if at all. Hanging in the shadows is a shrewd method of gathering info before making a move. Micro-plan each day and be boring, for once. It won’t last long, if you’re doing it right. Scorpio
23 Oct – 21 Nov
The woo-woo bit is that gut, intuition, mystical coincidences and a sense of ‘just knowing’ are likely to guide your every move for at least a few weeks. Head and heart may go into spin mode, resulting in dithering, indecision and general unease – unless you believe in yourself enough to act according to your inner truth. There’s a very wise guru lurking within – and she knows what’s what. Listen to her.
19 Feb – 20 Mar
What’s love got to do with it? Everything, actually. Your true-blue relationships with other humans – from intimates to co-workers – take on extra importance now. You’re wondering who to trust, what to believe and why you should care. Be patient with your lovely self in this transit, and less pushy or anxious about both old and potential connections. The right people will come (and go) at the right time.
21 Jun – 22 Jul
Breaking bad habits isn’t as simple as TED talks make it out to be. But it can be done – and you’re up. Working on wonderful new ways to do the same stuff differently will transform you, one dogged step at a time. Effort and commitment are vital foot soldiers pushing you towards a better year, so decide on a POA and stick to it. Being silly is a good start. Yes – silly. Sagittarius
22 Nov – 21 Dec
Excitement abounds as your immediate horizon swells with new connections. You’ve worked hard to reach this point – a break in the boredom of routine and the chance to expand skills or take up longed-for opportunities. Best foot forward is the way: keep in touch with contacts, be open-minded and carry spare heels in the boot. You don’t know where you’re headed next, so best be prepared.
21 Mar – 19 Apr
The trick is to roll with the punches, rather than dodge them. Unexpected change – a mix of great, okay-ish and somewhat iffy – may catch you off guard, causing you to fly into a rage or feel ruffled. Don’t. This is just a phase, and you’re a bit part in the unfolding drama. Stay low, play nicely and attend to each day’s business with your usual poise and penchant for brilliance.
23 Jul – 22 Aug
That sense of going nowhere slowly may be maddening, but what’s the rush? Nothing tastes better than success, but at what cost? The secret to a sweet month lies in teamwork; common goals spill over with benefits, so avoid the solo route and reach out to those who can get you where you want to go. Chances are you’re all going in the same direction anyway.
