LIBRA 24 Septem­ber – 23 Oc­to­ber

Re­sent­ment bub­bling away un­der the sur­face may have im­pacted as­pects of your home or fam­ily life. You should be re­lieved there­fore to find that from around 10 Oc­to­ber on­wards those peo­ple in­volved be­come keen to bring ev­ery­thing out into the open. Yes, it will be awk­ward – at times painful – but it has to be done. MOTTO OF THE MONTH Never use a lot when a lit­tle will do.

SCORPIO 24 Oc­to­ber – 22 Novem­ber

Af­ter feel­ing in­ad­e­quate among cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als, you are about to re­ceive a boost to your self-con­fi­dence. This will be good for you, pro­vided you don’t let it go to your head and ir­ri­tate those nearby. Even if you be­come the one with the most knowl­edge or ex­pe­ri­ence at your fin­ger­tips, han­dle it with the light­est of touches. MOTTO OF THE MONTH Too much con­sult­ing can con­found.

SAGITTARIUS 23 Novem­ber – 21 De­cem­ber

You may have missed out on the good times re­cently be­cause your fo­cus has been else­where. So don’t feel guilty about in­dulging your­self and some­one close in an ex­trav­a­gant way. Take your lead from the Aries Full Moon, which, around 5 Oc­to­ber, will re­mind you of how much fun you can be when cir­cum­stances al­low. MOTTO OF THE MONTH Wis­dom is to the soul what health is to the body.

CAPRICORN 22 De­cem­ber – 20 Jan­uary

Those in author­ity will want you to push your­self very hard or at least add your name to a con­tro­ver­sial plan. First make sure that you’ll have the time, the en­ergy and the en­thu­si­asm to be part of some­thing that is likely to do more for the other peo­ple in­volved than it will for you.

MOTTO OF THE MONTH If you want to be loved, love.

AQUARIUS 21 Jan­uary – 19 Fe­bru­ary

Much as you might want to ex­pand your vi­sion work-wise or in terms of your per­sonal de­vel­op­ment, you should take one small step at a time. Refuse to let Jupiter’s move into a pow­er­ful sec­tion of your chart leave you think­ing you can get to the top in record time. MOTTO OF THE MONTH When the game is over, the king and pawn go back in the same box.

PISCES 20 Fe­bru­ary – 20 March

In­evitably, some of those around you will bicker about money or their rights within a cer­tain set-up. And with­out ap­pear­ing un­car­ing, you won’t want to be drawn into the ar­gu­ments likely to flare up. Nor should you. Make it clear that you’ve other im­por­tant mat­ters to at­tend to and steer your­self to­wards a neu­tral po­si­tion. MOTTO OF THE MONTH Avail­abil­ity of­ten means far more than abil­ity.

ARIES 21 March – 20 April

Not ev­ery­one will un­der­stand why you’re keen to pool your re­sources with those of some­one known as a risk-taker. You would be wise to lis­ten to one par­tic­u­lar per­son re­mind­ing you of the im­por­tance of mu­tual trust. You don’t have to be­come neu­rotic about this per­son’s be­haviour. But you must take care.

MOTTO OF THE MONTH Bet­ter to leave than to lack.

TAURUS 21 April – 21 May

Hav­ing been ex­tremely mind­ful of com­mit­ments, you might won­der when you can en­joy a respite from the more se­ri­ous side of life. As sev­eral planets change signs in Oc­to­ber, you’ll re­alise how much joy can be gleaned from re­la­tion­ships that you’ve ne­glected. MOTTO OF THE MONTH You may be on the right track, but if you just sit there you’ ll get run down.

GEMINI 22 May – 21 June

The dis­cov­ery that your per­cep­tion of a loved one or friend changes on a daily ba­sis should not alarm you. The Sun’s run-in with Uranus is merely bring­ing to your at­ten­tion per­son­al­ity traits you never no­ticed early in the re­la­tion­ship. En­joy the fact that you’re spend­ing time with some­one who is full of sur­prises. MOTTO OF THE MONTH War only de­ter­mines who is left, not who is right.

CAN­CER 22 June – 23 July

Lit­tle by lit­tle, you’re be­com­ing known as some­one who’s do­ing well within cer­tain ter­ri­tory. And in early Oc­to­ber, in­flu­en­tial peo­ple will be keen to join forces with you in some way. All of which is fine, but you must fol­low your in­stincts con­cern­ing one as­pect of an ar­range­ment that sounds too good to be true. MOTTO OF THE MONTH Every job mir­rors the per­son who did it.

LEO 24 July – 23 Au­gust

Di­vided loy­al­ties could hin­der close re­la­tion­ships. Try not to let a Sun-Pluto clash prej­u­dice you against one per­son while you favour an­other. Your chal­lenge will be to re­main im­par­tial. Prove you’re not in the busi­ness of tak­ing sides and that those who want to ri­val one an­other can do so with­out any con­tri­bu­tion from your­self. MOTTO OF THE MONTH Honey is sweet but the bee stings.

VIRGO 24 Au­gust – 23 Septem­ber

As one busi­ness or fi­nan­cial ar­range­ment comes to a close, an­other will take its place soon af­ter­wards. Be pleased and re­lieved that you’re able to let go of some­thing that no longer works en­tirely in your favour. This means you can fo­cus on new, in­no­va­tive ideas that will in­spire you in ex­actly the right way.

MOTTO OF THE MONTH Laugh­ter is a smile with the vol­ume turned up.
