Oc­to­ber 24 – Novem­ber 22

With a well-bal­anced re­la­tion­ship, you are truly lucky. So many peo­ple seek but never find such a thing. Hold on to what’s good but, if a change is nec­es­sary, avoid quick de­ci­sions. There’s a time to act and a time to con­sider. Be sure that what you’re seek­ing is what you want. Ro­man­tic de­ci­sions made now can be hard to change. Tak­ing your time is per­fectly OK. Your Luck: Even at a cross­roads there’s no need to make a fast de­ci­sion. What if there’s an­other way?


Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20

What­ever you are do­ing this week, make it fun. Bring out your smile, jokes and op­ti­mism. There may be gloomi­ness all around you and it would be easy to let this get you down. But no! Your pur­pose is to shed a light into the gloom so that others can share your op­ti­mism. Haven’t you al­ways wanted to be a lead­ing light? Well, now is your chance to re­ally shine. Your Luck: Un­earth your po­ten­tial and have some fun. Where do your tal­ents re­ally lie? Let us find out.

Cancer June 22 – July 22

Gain­ing the at­ten­tion you de­serve is sat­is­fy­ing to say the least. This, how­ever, could lead to many in­vi­ta­tions to show off your tal­ents even more. You don’t want to end up ex­hausted as this can soon turn to scratch­i­ness! Take your­self out of the loop at the week­end and do some­thing peace­ful and re­lax­ing. You may not even want to take your special friend. Your Luck: Soli­tude can be re­fresh­ing and com­fort­ing. Clear your mind and give imag­i­na­tion a chance to take hold.

Sagittariu­s Novem­ber 23 – De­cem­ber 21

This is a time when others tend to speak quite openly with you. Not all that you hear is flat­ter­ing. If you have been so bound up in your own world, now is the time to change. Ac­cept­ing that others have a dif­fer­ent pic­ture of who you are can be quite shock­ing. You don’t need to fuss about chang­ing things. Just slowly shift into an­other gear. Your Luck: You have taken time to be who you are. Now take the time to be who you want to be.


March 21 – April 20

Lower ex­pec­ta­tions of you give some breath­ing space. Make the most of this as you now know how hec­tic things can get! A chance to catch up with some­one from the past brings ex­cit­ing news and a few sur­prises. You may have let ro­mance take a back seat but it’s now back on the menu. Ex­tra ef­fort may be needed to make up for lost time. Your Luck: To im­press all you need to do is lis­ten and re­spond hon­estly. Some­one who cares for you is look­ing for feed­back.


July 23 – Au­gust 23

Things feel much more nor­mal this week. Of course you’re fully aware there’s a lot of catch­ing up to do. It is un­likely that others will be rush­ing around and you will not be alone in feel­ing a bit slug­gish. If you kicked old habits re­cently, then keep up the good work. It would be a shame not to have gained some­thing valu­able from these last few months, wouldn’t it? Your Luck: Run­ning in cir­cles? Get­ting nowhere? Stop and try a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion. Now there’s a sur­prise!

Capricorn De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 20

As changes hap­pen in your life this week, es­pe­cially where work is con­cerned, there can be a sense of un­ease. The more you take charge and make your own de­ci­sions, the safer you feel. We have all had the rug pulled from un­der us. It is an un­com­fort­able and even scary feel­ing. Be your own best friend now and do what you need to do for your own fu­ture and well­be­ing. Your Luck: Stop push­ing your­self so hard to be per­fect. Who wants per­fect any­way?

Taurus April 21 – May 21

Op­ti­mism and good in­ten­tions aren’t enough right now. Bring your ideas to the at­ten­tion of some­one who can move them for­ward. Many are lack­ing in con­fi­dence at the mo­ment but, if you con­tinue to show en­thu­si­asm, you will be no­ticed. The week­end gives the chance for fun with some­one close, but are you in the right frame of mind? Don’t do things by halves. Your Luck: Look to be in the right place with the right per­son but, if not, don’t take se­cond best.


Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

Do you feel like bounc­ing back but find that some of your ‘bounce’ has gone? The more you be­come aware that nor­mal­ity is re­turn­ing, the more your con­fi­dence will grow. Your tal­ents and ex­pe­ri­ence have not changed, they have just been de­layed, and you will find that your en­thu­si­asm re­turns even faster if you share this mo­ment with some­one close and special. Your Luck: There are highs and lows but con­cen­trate on en­joy­ing the highs!

Aquarius Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19

It no longer feels un­com­fort­able to be you. This change has been slow but sure. Hav­ing dis­cov­ered that you are smarter, braver and more un­der­stand­ing, the po­ten­tial to turn a cor­ner is here. Want to see around that cor­ner? Well, maybe you have to use your imag­i­na­tion and com­mon sense. The only thing you have to fear is fear it­self. So, where is the brave new you? Your Luck: What a fresh start gives you this week is the old feel­ing of youth and con­fi­dence.

Gemini May 22 – June 21

A change of pace this week could feel as if things are com­ing to a stand­still. Not so. This is just a pause in what turns out to be a par­tic­u­larly busy pe­riod. Much of it is rou­tine stuff but es­sen­tial to clear the decks. You’re not in the dol­drums but are wait­ing for that beau­ti­ful sun­rise that sig­nals all is back to nor­mal. You see, be­ing flex­i­ble paid off af­ter all! Your Luck: Here we go again. Only this time your ef­forts will be re­warded. Gather ro­mance to you at the week­end.
