(Mar21/Apr20) YOU are op­ti­mistic and with good rea­son. Things are look­ing up in your per­sonal life.

If you are sin­gle, you will meet some­one who shares your love of ad­ven­ture and makes your pulse rate pound. You’ll have lots of fun ex­plor­ing hot clubs and restau­rants to­gether. A power strug­gle with an au­thor­ity fig­ure will spur you on to look for a new job. Look for some­thing that will give you a greater mea­sure of in­de­pen­dence. You’re tired of be­ing mi­cro­man­aged all the time.


(Apr21/May21) SOME­TIMES it is all too easy to let your guard down and say things you didn’t mean or will in­stantly re­gret.

The next few days could see you shar­ing a se­cret that is bet­ter kept quiet.

This is a good time for deal­ing with money man­age­ment is­sues. You can achieve your cash goals thanks to your per­sis­tent pa­tience. There’s no rea­son you should take ‘no’ for an an­swer when it comes to mak­ing fes­tive ar­range­ments. Make sure every­body joins in the fun even if it means twist­ing an arm or two.


(May22/Jun21) THIS can be a very ex­pen­sive time of year for those who don’t al­lo­cate a bud­get and then stick to it.

You could eas­ily find your­self blown off course by tempt­ing of­fers or the fes­tive pres­sures to push the boat out now and think about the costs later. If you find your re­solve is slip­ping you should follow the ad­vice of an older rel­a­tive or a worldly wise friend and rein your­self in. Plan your Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions care­fully and take care to in­clude ev­ery­one and not leave any­one out.


(Jun22/Jul23) TRAVEL and ex­plo­ration might not be the first thing on your mind dur­ing the Christ­mas count­down but it won’t be all that far from your thoughts.

Be­fore too long you will be think­ing about tak­ing a break and mak­ing hol­i­day book­ings. Money has to be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion as fes­tive spend­ing can quickly spi­ral out of con­trol, but you will in­stinc­tively know what is right to spend now and how much you need to stash away for fu­ture spring and sum­mer trips. A busy, thought­ful time.


(Jul24/Aug23) LOVE is in the air. If you have a ro­man­tic part­ner, sexy sparks will fly be­tween you.

Take this op­por­tu­nity to plan an in­ti­mate evening to­gether. A can­dlelit din­ner or re­lax­ing va­ca­tion will strengthen your mu­tual af­fec­tion. Are you sin­gle? You’ll meet some­one spe­cial at a Box­ing Day sport­ing event or New Year con­cert.

It won’t be easy to fi­nalise your list of res­o­lu­tions for 2015. You will prob­a­bly have lots of things you’d like to ac­com­plish so maybe you would be wise to fo­cus on one or two aims.


(Aug24/Sep23) A LOT of things may have to be put on hold while the fes­tiv­i­ties are in progress, but that doesn’t mean you will stop plan­ning and pre­par­ing for what you hope the com­ing year may have in store for you.

Spare a thought for loving part­ners, rel­a­tives and chil­dren who may feel a lit­tle side­lined while you are rather pre­oc­cu­pied with your own con­cerns.

This is the fes­tive sea­son and you will be ex­pected to play your part in the fun and frol­ics so re­lax and en­joy your­self.


(Sep24/Oct23) BE open to ex­plor­ing un­fa­mil­iar stores, restau­rants and cul­tural di­ver­sions.

Va­ri­ety is the spice of life in the fes­tive sea­son. You will find that any cash con­cerns you had re­cently will not seem so im­por­tant now. Plan a fun trip for your near­est and dear­est.

You’ll all ben­e­fit from some time away from home to­gether. A business or ro­man­tic part­ner will drive you to dis­trac­tion with their ir­ra­tional de­mands. It’s time to draw some firm bound­aries. You’re get­ting tired of be­ing treated like a ser­vant.


(Oct24/Nov22) YOU might want to take a back seat dur­ing the Christ­mas count­down but the peo­ple around you have dif­fer­ent ideas.

Ex­pect lots of in­vi­ta­tions and if you are the am­bi­tious type you should take the op­por­tu­nity to net­work with some in­flu­en­tial in­di­vid­u­als in an in­for­mal set­ting. If you haven’t fin­ished your Christ­mas shop­ping or fi­nalised your plans for the New Year you should swing into ac­tion as soon as you can. After all time is run­ning out and you don’t want to dis­ap­point some­one close.


(Nov23/Dec21) YOUR charisma is at an all time high. Use it to win favours and open doors.

If you have your eye on some­one spe­cial, make a mistle­toe move. Chances are you will get an en­thu­si­as­tic re­cep­tion.

Are you al­ready in a re­la­tion­ship? Let your amour lav­ish you with af­fec­tion. There’s a good chance you will go on a glam­orous va­ca­tion to­gether. Don’t let a power strug­gle over money spi­ral out of con­trol. Be will­ing to put your dif­fer­ences aside and cre­ate a sen­si­ble New Year bud­get to­gether.


(Dec22/Jan20) CASH will not be a ma­jor worry for you now.

Hav­ing money for lux­u­ries will give your fes­tive spir­its a lift. Take this op­por­tu­nity to buy your­self and your loved ones a few lit­tle treats. You de­serve a re­ward for such hard work and in­dus­try. A dis­ap­prov­ing rel­a­tive will try to make you feel guilty about th­ese pur­chases.

Turn a deaf ear to their crit­i­cisms. It’s im­por­tant for you to in­dulge your whims and fan­cies from time to time. Be­ing too cau­tious will dampen your en­thu­si­asm for life.


(Jan21/Feb19) FRIENDS and fam­ily will support and en­cour­age you.

Take this op­por­tu­nity to pur­sue a cher­ished dream.

Your best friend or ro­man­tic part­ner will of­fer their full support.

Some­one will try to un­der­mine your con­fi­dence with crit­i­cal re­marks. Re­sist the temp­ta­tion to let rip and give them a piece of your mind. Ex­hibit­ing grace un­der fire is a wise strat­egy. An in­di­vid­ual who ad­mires your re­straint will present you with an un­usual op­por­tu­nity that you will have to think through very care­fully.


(Feb20/Mar20) WITH Christ­mas just around the cor­ner your or­gan­i­sa­tional skills will come into their own.

From putting the fin­ish­ing touches to plans for a Yule­tide gath­er­ing to buy­ing presents and send­ing cards, you are in for a few busy days. Even if you are not caught up in all the sea­sonal shenani­gans you won’t be able to avoid the im­pact this time of year will have on your ar­range­ments. It’s no good try­ing to cut across the grain, put your fes­tive face on and go with the flow.

En­joy your­self.
