Libra SIGN OF THE MONTH The Li­bran na­ture

Flirty and charm­ing, you adore com­pany and be­ing part of a part­ner­ship - not just ro­man­ti­cally, but in ev­ery sphere of your life. You’re also very good at see­ing both sides of an ar­gu­ment, but this may cause in­fu­ri­a­tion – more to your­self than to any­one else! You’re too diplo­matic to up­set oth­ers. Pro­cras­ti­na­tion can be a big is­sue for you. You can’t bear un­fair­ness, but you also like serenity and the good things in life - squalor is not your thing! Watch out for overindul­gence. Although you’ve got a quick mind, you’re also a lit­tle bit too trust­ing at times. Don’t be taken for a fool.

Your love life

Ro­man­tic and soft-hearted, you wear rose-tinted glasses when it comes to your part­ner, which means it hurts twice as much if they let you down. On the other hand, you’re not above a bit of ban­ter, and ver­bal spar­ring will keep you on your toes. In bed, you love to be wooed – plenty of flat­ter­ing at­ten­tion, please.

Your year ahead

Re­la­tion­ships may be­come topsy-turvy in Novem­ber. You could find your­self go­ing down a road you thought you’d left long ago. On the plus side, doors are open­ing up to you in ex­cit­ing and won­der­ful new ways - look for op­por­tu­ni­ties in your lo­cal area. Jan­uary brings a new home be­gin­nings, and Fe­bru­ary brings ro­mance and friend­ship straight to the fore. By April this could be­come more per­ma­nent. Come sum­mer­time, you'll be look­ing at a big new begin­ning in your ca­reer. More peo­ple will soon be look­ing up to you!

21 MARCH - 20 APRIL Aries Your love life

Your heart skips a beat this month. Things are as con­fus­ing as they are ex­cit­ing and can be sum­marised by one word: in­tense. On the one hand, you’re fret­ting that the re­la­tion­ship plans you made so care­fully have gone out of the win­dow. On the other, from the 9th, you’re plan­ning a whole new begin­ning. Mid-month, you find a way to ver­balise your feel­ings, which will prove help­ful. A stroke of good for­tune on the 31st brings you back to ba­sics in a good way.

Life and laughs

Your pals are im­por­tant to you – there may be a lively dis­cus­sion with one of them on the 11th. You’re both feisty in­di­vid­u­als, but you'll make things up be­fore long. You're itch­ing to start con­cen­trat­ing on brain-ex­pand­ing ac­tiv­i­ties that will open up new op­por­tu­ni­ties. This will be­gin to be­come a re­al­ity on the 31st, but start con­sid­er­ing which di­rec­tion you wish to go in now.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties

Cre­ative change can hap­pen now in your ca­reer, so make those steps you’ve been talk­ing about. Start think­ing about long-term in­vest­ments and make plans to re­coup lost cash - your wal­let is look­ing bare! Mid-month, ev­ery­thing falls into place. Take full credit!

HEAV­ENLY HIGH­LIGHTS

• The ce­les­tial fo­cus is on re­la­tion­ships and new be­gin­nings. • Cash and sav­ings need your at­ten­tion now. • In­ti­macy with oth­ers will make you feel all warm and fuzzy in­side.

POWER PLAN­ETS

With such an im­pres­sive clus­ter of plan­ets in Scorpio – Jupiter, the Sun, Mer­cury and Venus – this is a month to re­claim what’s yours. Don’t take no for an an­swer. You know what you need.

BE LUCKY: 22ND

What you say to­day will grab at­ten­tion– and bring you some pos­i­tive ben­e­fits.

21 APRIL - 21 MAY Taurus Your love life

You’ve been think­ing hard about what you want from a re­la­tion­ship, and you’re ready to make some de­ci­sions. Es­pe­cially from the 5th, you’re hy­per-aware of what needs to be changed and re­freshed. Think about let­ting go of any­thing that’s not work­ing for you. The fact is, this is a bril­liant time for re­assess­ing your re­la­tion­ship goals. Sin­gle? This is a good time for work­ing out where you’ve gone wrong in pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ships. The 26th brings an op­por­tu­nity for build­ing last­ing bonds.

Life and laughs

You’ve been pon­der­ing what you re­ally want out of life. From the 1st, projects in­volv­ing fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion or travel get the green light. This raises your spir­its. If you get a chance to spend time with friends on the 19th, grab it. You’ll find pals to be su­per-sup­port­ive. The Full Moon on the 24th falls in your sign. The fo­cus in on you. Har­ness this power and en­joy the at­ten­tion!

Op­por­tu­ni­ties

You’ve got the per­fect bal­ance be­tween push­ing ahead with am­bi­tions and get­ting your day-to-day work­ing life sorted – make the most of it! From the 9th you could find your­self work­ing on new projects or get­ting train­ing. Watch out that you don’t ruffle feath­ers with your can-do at­ti­tude!

HEAV­ENLY HIGH­LIGHTS

• Your sig­nif­i­cant other will ap­pre­ci­ate at­ten­tion from you now. • Work­ing life and prac­tices are un­der the spot­light. • You’re re-think­ing per­sonal feel­ings and at­ti­tudes but it’s all good.

POWER PLAN­ETS

With the Full Moon in Taurus, you’re ex­trasen­si­tive. You’re still get­ting used to Uranus go­ing back­wards in your sign. Give your­self a break.

BE LUCKY: 29TH

A part­ner has a great idea – it can bring you both fab­u­lous for­tune!

22 MAY - 21 JUNE Gemini Your love life

Uh-oh! Ex­pect a lover’s tiff on the 3rd – but don’t worry, it’s back to lovey-dovey after that. That said, new ro­man­tic be­gin­nings could hap­pen from the 9th. If you’ve had your beady eye on some­one, you might find those feel­ings are re­cip­ro­cated! Make the most of this time; flirt and have fun. If you’ve been hav­ing is­sues in the bed­room, there's a sig­nif­i­cant break­through to­wards the end of the month - phew! By the 31st, you’re com­mu­ni­cat­ing with your boo bet­ter than ever.

Life and laughs

This month is all about fun! Spend it in fields frol­ick­ing with pup­pies if you can. In all se­ri­ous­ness, you’ll have a great time hang­ing out with kids or do­ing light-hearted stuff. Why fight it? Book a trip to a theme park and roll with it! The 15th should be a charmed day. In the fi­nal week of Oc­to­ber, take stock and think about your spir­i­tual needs. You’ll be glad that you did.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties

If all your hard work mak­ing con­nec­tions at work seems to be un­rav­el­ling, don’t panic. It’s a tem­po­rary blip. From the 10th, put your ex­cel­lent com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills to use when it comes to get­ting cer­tain peo­ple or­gan­ised and on point. By the 29th, you’re rid­ing high again.

HEAV­ENLY HIGH­LIGHTS

• Let the good times roll! This is your fun time. • Fab new op­por­tu­ni­ties at work bring ex­cite­ment. • Deep se­crets and in­ner­most feel­ings are an im­por­tant fo­cus.

POWER PLAN­ETS

With Pluto go­ing for­ward in your House of Power and In­ti­macy, give a fi­nal push in ar­eas of your life which have vexed you. Chances are you’ll suc­ceed now!

BE LUCKY: 26TH

Your pow­er­ful charisma makes those around you want to help. Take them up on their of­fers.

22 JUNE - 23 JULY Can­cer Your love life

Oc­to­ber kicks off with seis­mic change in your re­la­tion­ship out­look. Have you been putting off mak­ing changes? Do it now. This change in out­look can also be at a deeper psy­cho­log­i­cal level. If you’re sin­gle and you’ve been drag­ging your feet about be­ing open to a re­la­tion­ship, you’re sud­denly tempted to dive right in - but from the 5th, things are far from sim­ple! Is some­one giv­ing you the run-around? Keep your pa­tience un­til the 23rd. Things will be­come clearer then.

Life and laughs

You’re a proper home bird as the month be­gins. From the 9th, you’re en­joy­ing fresh starts and new be­gin­nings - a move of house, or news about your fam­ily be­ing ex­panded. That crazy gang you call friends are also very much on your radar. One of them - or you - makes a move that seems sur­pris­ing. Once the dust set­tles, you can see where this is go­ing and it’s all good.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties

This is a pro­duc­tive time for you. If you get the chance to ex­press your­self cre­atively from the 10th, take it – every­one will be im­pressed with the re­sults. You can also make progress with plans for ex­pand­ing your hori­zons – is there a course you’ve al­ways longed to do? Get signed up!

HEAV­ENLY HIGH­LIGHTS

• Home is where the heart is! En­joy nest­ing with your loved ones. • Ro­mance and re­la­tion­ships are on your mind – what do you re­ally want? • Im­por­tant friend­ships make you feel cher­ished.

POWER PLAN­ETS

With a strong fo­cus in your House of Cre­ativ­ity, Chil­dren and Ro­mance, you are con­sid­er­ing what could ful­fil your life. Think hard now. You’ll have a de­ci­sion to make next month.

BE LUCKY: 19TH

Use your in­tu­ition – a gam­ble can pay off now.

24 JULY - 23 AU­GUST Leo Your love life

Cou­pled-up Leos are tak­ing no pris­on­ers this month. It’s great that you know what you want, but be care­ful you’re not too as­sertive! Whether you’re sin­gle or at­tached, you’ll find your­self mak­ing a deep con­nec­tion. Ro­man­tic at­ten­tion is headed your way on the 15th. What’s not to like? Not much, but you may have to spend some time go­ing over old ground that you thought had been sorted aeons ago. By the 31st you’ll be en­ter­ing a new phase of com­mu­ni­ca­tion about love.

Life and laughs

Ev­ery­body needs good neigh­bours – es­pe­cially you. There are changes afoot from the 9th. Make con­nec­tions and meet up. You’ll have a ball. After the 23rd, you’ll be think­ing far more about fam­ily. If you have a home pro­ject, get on with it now. It could be some­thing of a gold­mine, and if you tap into it, it could bring much hap­pi­ness and con­tent­ment in the fu­ture.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties

No­body would deny there have been frus­tra­tions when it comes to get­ting stuff done. It’s mainly been down to cir­cum­stances be­yond your con­trol. Now, at last, you can get on with the job in hand. Those in au­thor­ity are ac­tu­ally look­ing your way on the 24th.

HEAV­ENLY HIGH­LIGHTS

• En­joy fam­ily time with broth­ers and sis­ters. • Home life and prop­erty mat­ters could bring you wealth and hap­pi­ness. • You love be­ing un­der the spot­light – so do it at work. It's your time to shine!

POWER PLAN­ETS

Nep­tune is in your House of In­ti­macy – it makes a pos­i­tive con­tact with Mer­cury in your House of Roots. A se­cret that comes out now can have a won­der­fully heal­ing ef­fect.

BE LUCKY: 29TH

A ran­dom dis­cus­sion about a spe­cial house can leave you quids in.

24 AUG - 23 SEPT Virgo Your love life

If you’ve been yearn­ing to make changes in your ro­man­tic life, now’s the time! From the 1st, you’ve got the power – but your new con­fi­dence isn’t go­ing to please every­one. You may have to get as­sertive with cer­tain peo­ple! Luck­ily, from 5th, you’re not afraid to show time wasters the door. Sin­gles should take all sweet noth­ings as sub­ject to fur­ther con­fir­ma­tion. When it comes to ex­ist­ing part­ner­ships, a chat on the 19th is heal­ing. There’s a big sur­prise at the end of the month.

Life and laughs

Va-va-voom! From the 10th, life goes into over­drive. You’re not afraid to get things done, to take ac­tion and to or­gan­ise every­one around you, es­pe­cially so­cially. On the 24th, you may well get a chance to slake your wan­der­lust. Cut loose, and book that hol­i­day or ad­ven­ture. Hur­rah! Fo­cus on friends and mak­ing con­nec­tions and you won’t go far wrong.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties

You’re a to­tal dy­namo – but use some charm so oth­ers won’t find you too OTT. Given the fact you’re putting a lot in, the good news is, you’re also get­ting stuff out, too. There’s a new begin­ning when it comes to cash power on the 9th. This may even mean a raise – nice!

HEAV­ENLY HIGH­LIGHTS

• You’re a mag­net for money – mak­ing and at­tract­ing the hard stuff. • Neigh­bours and sib­lings are loads of fun. • Dreams and am­bi­tions for the fu­ture are well-starred.

POWER PLAN­ETS

Travel is trig­gered this month thanks to the Sun’s pres­ence in your House of Short Jour­neys. But with Uranus ret­ro­grade in your House of Long-dis­tance Travel, dou­ble-check ar­range­ments to avoid any un­wanted de­lays.

BE LUCKY: 15TH

A chance meet­ing fills you with hap­pi­ness and hope.

24 SEPT - 23 OCT Libra Your love life

Your charisma is switched on full wattage and you could charm the birds out of the trees right now. You’ve done a lot of soul-search­ing and know your own self-worth. Any­one who’s doubted you is set for a rude awakening on the 9th when you set out your terms firmly. Oth­ers around you could think they are deal­ing with an en­tirely new per­son! There is a mo­ment of ten­der­ness on 15th, but in the last week, is­sues of in­ti­macy will surge to the fore. Sort these out and you can move for­ward.

Life and laughs

Fam­ily mat­ters have been on your mind for a while. You’ve been angling for some kind of trans­for­ma­tion, and from the 1st, you sense you’re get­ting through at last. There will still be the odd strug­gle, such as on the 11th, but it will be con­struc­tive. There’s plenty of fun to be had, too. If you want your so­cial life to have a boost the end of the month, start hint­ing heav­ily to your friends!

Op­por­tu­ni­ties

Cash is king this month. It’s not that it’s pour­ing into your life – in fact, it’s more likely to be slip­ping through your fin­gers. Take ac­tion and dis­cuss im­prove­ments in your work­ing life on the 19th. Per­haps the new, con­fi­dent you has re­alised what your dream job should be. Start mak­ing plans.

HEAV­ENLY HIGH­LIGHTS

• Makeovers – in at­ti­tude as well as looks – will serve you ex­tremely well.

• Fo­cus on cash – mak­ing it and keep­ing it!

• Fam­ily news and ac­tiv­ity will keep you busy.

POWER PLAN­ETS

With Uranus ret­ro­grade in your House of In­ti­macy and Power, things have felt a lit­tle roller­coaster-like for a while – now the Full Moon ac­ti­vates this house too. Ex­pect some se­ri­ously in­ter­est­ing rev­e­la­tions!

BE LUCKY: 26TH

A small win to­day puts a smile on your face.

24 OCT - 22 NOV Scorpio Your love life

That other per­son in your life – whether it’s your cur­rent or po­ten­tial part­ner – leaves you feel­ing, frankly, baf­fled. This con­fu­sion only in­creases on the 5th. And yet some pos­i­tive dis­cus­sions on the 19th about how much of an ide­alised vi­sion you both have will bring hope and op­ti­mism. The 24th is de­ci­sion time – what do you want to do? Re­la­tion­ship mat­ters cul­mi­nate. This can be a day when you ce­ment love – or de­cide to call it a day. Pos­i­tive as­pects show sta­bil­ity is on the menu.

Life and laughs

There’s no pre­tend­ing you feel su­per-so­cial at the mo­ment. You’re not afraid of soli­tude – you gain strength from it. Mid-month sees you of­fer­ing some heal­ing heart-to-hearts to oth­ers. You’re re­think­ing the way you present your­self and your feel­ings at the mo­ment. By the last week of Oc­to­ber, you’re back to nor­mal and ready to get as­sertive with the world!

Op­por­tu­ni­ties

If you haven’t been able to get your point across of late, you’ll find your­self more ar­tic­u­late and pow­er­ful with bosses after the 1st. You’re very per­sua­sive at the mo­ment. On the 22nd, you’re su­per-savvy and ul­tra-per­sua­sive. By the end of the month you’re talk­ing dosh - how to make more of it!

HEAV­ENLY HIGH­LIGHTS

• The spir­i­tual side of life comes un­der the spot­light.

• Re­la­tion­ships and mak­ing de­ci­sions are well-starred.

• Make the most of be­ing a pow­er­ful com­mu­ni­ca­tor.

POWER PLAN­ETS

The New Moon falls in your House of the Hid­den on the 9th – this re­ally is a wake-up call to take some per­sonal time. It’s time for you to fo­cus on, well, you. Try yoga and med­i­ta­tions to get spir­i­tual break­throughs.

BE LUCKY: 29TH

Your words are like spo­ken gold to­day – use them wisely and well!

23 NOV - 22 DEC Sagittarius Your love life

Things get re­ally in­ter­est­ing around the 5th. You’re in a sen­si­tive sit­u­a­tion love-wise – per­haps you’re in­volved with some­one who needs a lot of sup­port, or maybe it’s some­one you need to keep quiet about for some rea­son – at least for now? Sin­gles might find them­selves tan­gled up in seem­ingly un­re­quited love. Frus­trat­ing? Ab­so­lutely. The thing to do is to take no ac­tion – leave it be for now. By the 29th, you re­ceive some pos­i­tive feed­back. Clar­ity will come next month.

Life and laughs

Get­ting to­gether with pals is on your must-do list. New friends and groups beckon. Bor­ing nor­mal­ity just isn’t go­ing to cut it for you – es­pe­cially around the 9th. You’re not staying in, and you’re bet­ter off in a gag­gle of like-minded peo­ple. That is, up un­til the 23rd, when you find your­self look­ing for a bit of head space. You’re en­ter­ing a few weeks where you can do ex­actly that.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties

From the 1st, all of the re­wards you were promised sud­denly start to come good. You should be rightly feel­ing proud. How­ever, any­thing that is worth do­ing isn’t go­ing to be to­tally easy. On the 24th you’ll need to tackle an is­sue in your work­ing life that needs at­ten­tion. Be diplo­matic.

HEAV­ENLY HIGH­LIGHTS

• Friend­ships, new and old, are in full swing now.

• Meditation and re­dis­cov­er­ing quiet time will give you much-needed head space.

• Work­ing life and care­ful rou­tine will pay off.

POWER PLAN­ETS

With a bunch of plan­ets tucked away in your House of the Hid­den, chan­nel kind­ness and em­pa­thy. When the Sun joins the plan­ets in the fi­nal week, it will be your mis­sion!

BE LUCKY: 22ND

You ask the right ques­tion – and get bril­liantly re­warded.

23 DEC - 20 JAN Capricorn Your love life

Your love life has been spin­ning away from you for yonks now. The irony of you – cool and com­posed – be­ing out of con­trol is not lost on you. From the 5th, you could won­der whether clar­ity will ever come. Sin­gle? Old friends will prove fer­tile hunt­ing ground for new ro­mance. Events mid-month could put you on a high. But hold on un­til the 24th. It’s a great day for moon­lit walks and sweet noth­ings. You don’t know the fu­ture, but you can’t re­sist get­ting drunk on the pos­si­bil­i­ties.

Life and laughs

Few peo­ple have done more work on them­selves than you. It hasn’t al­ways been easy, over­haul­ing ma­jor struc­tures in your life, and at times you’ve won­dered when your re­ward will come. From the 1st you’ll get to en­joy the fruits of your labour. Friend­ships are a big thing in your life this month. In the fi­nal week, you can start to put greater fo­cus on your so­cial life.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties

No­body could ac­cuse you of not work­ing your socks off to make things hap­pen, both pro­fes­sion­ally and fi­nan­cially. From the 9th, doors open and a new op­por­tu­nity beck­ons - this could mean a new job or a pro­mo­tion. Smarten up your act just in case.

HEAV­ENLY HIGH­LIGHTS

• A pas­sion­ate ro­mance comes to the boil.

• Con­fi­dence and so­cial life are in the spot­light.

• New be­gin­nings in your ca­reer look fan­tas­tic.

POWER PLAN­ETS

Pluto is mov­ing for­ward in your sign. It’s been such a long time since your sign has been free of ret­ro­grade plan­ets, you should def­i­nitely no­tice the dif­fer­ence. Make the most of the free­dom!

BE LUCKY: 19TH

Friends are your key to hap­pi­ness this month - one of them gives you an in­spi­ra­tional tip.

21 JAN - 19 FEB Aquarius Your love life

When it comes to love, you want to shout from the rooftops. You’re very proud of the per­son at your side. Those in com­mit­ted re­la­tion­ships may well be plan­ning cel­e­bra­tions! Just be aware the best laid plans can go awry, es­pe­cially on the 10th. Don’t fret, it will come good in the end. Sin­gles will ex­pe­ri­ence bliss around the 15th dur­ing one glo­ri­ous con­ver­sa­tion. Ul­ti­mately, you’re after last­ing hap­pi­ness. It will hap­pen, but there are merry dances along the way!

Life and laughs

The mantra thrum­ming your head at the mo­ment is, ‘there’s more to life than this,’ and you’re right. From the 9th you can push ahead with ex­pand­ing your hori­zons. This could mean jump­ing on a plane or start­ing a col­lege course. Your at­ten­tion will be pulled back to home later in the month. On the 24th, you’ll need to deal with a dif­fi­cult mat­ter but thank­fully you have a so­lu­tion.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties

Re­assess­ment and re­align­ment is what this month is all about. It could be mak­ing way for some­thing that you truly want. Cash is also on your agenda. On the 19th, dis­cus­sions about mak­ing more money should be in­spired - great news.

HEAV­ENLY HIGH­LIGHTS

• Travel and push­ing bound­aries brings joy and lots of fun.

• You’re re­think­ing the true def­i­ni­tion of suc­cess – and it’s mean­ing­ful.

• Fam­ily and home need your at­ten­tion.

POWER PLAN­ETS

With Pluto mov­ing for­ward in your House of the Hid­den, a pe­riod of in­tense in­tro­spec­tion and in­ter­nal soul-search­ing ends. Things will seem so much clearer - and thank good­ness for that!

BE LUCKY: 29TH

For­tune-filled cel­e­bra­tions put you on a high.

20 FEB - 20 MARCH Pisces Your love life

You’re like two peo­ple right now. One mo­ment, you’re ul­tra-sen­si­tive and needy – the next, you’re wild and ad­ven­tur­ous. You’re itch­ing to find out if one ro­mance that seems to be a dif­fer­ent type to your usual en­tan­gle­ments can ac­tu­ally work. The prob­lem is, cir­cum­stances be­yond your con­trol seem to be putting a span­ner in the works. It’s time to talk! There are things that need to be said. De­spite un­cer­tain­ties, you re­ally bond on the 26th. You can make this work!

Life and laughs

Thank­fully, tricky pals have got the memo to lighten up. From the 1st, they’ll be much eas­ier to deal with. From the 10th, you’ll be plot­ting your fu­ture – things might not go ex­actly to plan, but they might be even bet­ter! On the 24th, it’s time to let oth­ers know how you’re feel­ing. Your words have more oomph than usual and you can re­ally get your point across.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties

Take a hard look at cash as the month be­gins. You could make money but it’s im­per­a­tive that every­one has signed on the dot­ted line. Stand your ground dur­ing dis­cus­sions on the 3rd. If net­work­ing is part your job spec, you are about to make some pow­er­ful con­nec­tions.

HEAV­ENLY HIGH­LIGHTS

• In­ti­macy and power-play are on the agenda.

• You’re look­ing for­ward to new ad­ven­tures and ex­cit­ing fu­ture plans.

• Up­ping the ante friend­ship-wise will bring light to your life.

POWER PLAN­ETS

There may be frus­tra­tions - Mars is mov­ing for­ward now, but it’s stuck in the most hid­den part of your chart. If you’re itch­ing to take ac­tion, but can’t - don’t fret, it’s tem­po­rary!

BE LUCKY: 19TH

A meet­ing of minds gives you hope for the fu­ture - amen to that!
