Your Year Ahead – Virgo: Don’t worry about the grander is­sues of life dur­ing your birth­day month. There are more ur­gent mat­ters closer to home that re­quire your at­ten­tion. If your love life’s look­ing shaky, firm up the foun­da­tions. Should a friend or rel­a­tive re­quest help, of­fer sup­port, but in a way that al­lows them to be­come more in­de­pen­dent. Some­times peo­ple just have to do for them­selves. Aries (March 21 – April 20) Watch out, Aries, there’s a bad tem­per about. Some­one may be scratch­ing at an old emo­tional scab or re­in­forc­ing a long stand­ing grudge. This may be di­rected at you, or a loved one. Ei­ther way, don’t tip-toe around the problem. Con­front the ac­cuser head-on and clear the air. Taurus (April 21 – May 20) You’re in the mood for play. The week whisks many Tau­re­ans from their work and plants them in the ro­man­tic play­ground. In­deed, where ever af­fec­tions are aimed there’s a strong prom­ise of re­cip­ro­ca­tion. Good news for those starved of re­quited body warmth. Gemini (May 21 – June 21) This week brings a pe­riod of in­tro­spec­tion. If you feel vague ir­ri­ta­tion or anger look within. Per­haps some­thing or some­one from your past needs at­ten­tion? Re­solve mat­ters once and for all, and then be will­ing to dis­card what’s out­worn, and em­brace the new. Cancer (June 22 – July 22) The cos­mos sug­gests that what you most want this week is to find the strength and willpower to see you through and achieve what you want. It’s im­por­tant to come from a place of love and tol­er­ance though, not ag­gres­sion. Put your fears to rest and you’ll reap richer re­wards. Leo (July 23 – Au­gust 23) The plan­ets have sud­den shifts of mood and en­ergy this week, and so do you. Ini­tially, you may find your­self out of step. If there’s any­thing im­por­tant you want to dis­cuss, fi­nalise or or­gan­ise, leave it un­til week’s end. You’re less likely to stir up a hor­net’s nest. Virgo (Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 22) You’re not your usual tol­er­ant-self this week Virgo, edg­ing more to­wards feel­ing frus­trated or ir­ri­tated. Mostly you stay pa­tient, but we all get a lit­tle bat­tle-worn some­times. Do your­self and all around you a favour: with­draw for a short while. Re­group and re­coup. Libra (Septem­ber 23 – Oc­to­ber 23) Not all seems as straight for­ward as you’d like. Re­la­tion­ships come un­der fire, with cou­ples or business part­ner­ships hav­ing to de­tour from their usual rou­tine. Ba­si­cally, its a case of chang­ing di­rec­tion and see­ing what sur­vives the rigours of the week. Scorpio (Oc­to­ber 24 – Novem­ber 22) Scor­pios give all when love and nur­tur­ing are re­quired. But when there’s no sign of re­cip­ro­ca­tion watch that ta­ble turn. The last thing you need right now is to feel un­thanked or un­ap­pre­ci­ated. Hire a movie, run a hot bath. You’re in no mood for this world. Sagittarius (Novem­ber 23 – De­cem­ber 21) You’ve worked hard with lit­tle pay off; so it’s no sur­prise you feel like the uni­verse owes you. But don’t be tempted by get­rich-quick schemes, or hasty hook-ups. The next few weeks fo­cus more on long-term re­wards, as well as some­one who’s more than just a fling. Capricorn (De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 20) Capricorn lev­els of obli­ga­tion may be run­ning higher than what’s con­sid­ered healthy. Ask your­self why you’re do­ing so much. Are you re­ally needed ev­ery­where, or are you just try­ing to please too many peo­ple? This week calls for less stress and more play. Just for now, make fun your pri­or­ity. Aquarius (Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 18) Aquar­i­ans are born with a can­did, forth­right na­ture. This can get you out of all sorts of strife, or drop you right in it. This week, it’s the lat­ter. It’s pos­si­ble that some­thing you’ve said or done has been mis­in­ter­preted. Maybe you’ve even told it straight, but oth­ers didn’t want to hear it. Pisces (Fe­bru­ary 19 – March 20) This week it’s re­la­tion­ships that take pri­or­ity. You’re ready for a deeper kind of love, Pisces. Long-dis­tance re­la­tion­ships, cross-cul­tural con­nec­tions, or just an at­trac­tion to some­one far from your usual type are all pos­si­bil­i­ties. Or per­haps you re­vive a past ro­mance.
