Capri­corn De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 20

Have you been work­ing so hard that you have for­got­ten what fun is? I know. So much to do and so lit­tle time. Even so it is worth mak­ing the ef­fort to light-hearted at the week­end. There are some so­cial chal­lenges ahead then that will cat­a­pult your so­cial life into a sparkling place. All you have to do is be will­ing to ac­cept an in­vi­ta­tion. Your Luck: Try to be sen­si­ble when it comes to love but you can have fun!

Tau­rus April 21 – May 21

In a mem­o­rable week such as this, re­la­tion­ships can change rapidly. Friends can be­come lovers. Lovers can fall apart. Pas­sions at work can cause discord. So, are you ready for some eye-pop­ping mo­ments? The week­end brings to the fore a de­ci­sion that has been pon­dered far too long. Stop snort­ing at the gate and get mov­ing? Your Luck: The sooner you clear away a sit­u­a­tion the sooner you will feel a sense of free­dom.

Virgo Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

Is it a case, this week, of ‘out with the old and in with the new?’ Be diplo­matic even though you may feel like blurt­ing out your feel­ings. Get on with do­ing some­thing new to dis­tract neg­a­tive thoughts. It is hard to be flex­i­ble when not re­laxed. Look for­ward to next month when fam­ily mat­ters are cheer­ing! Look for that new best friend. Your Luck: Com­mu­ni­ca­tions can be fraz­zled so calm your mind with mu­sic or a bit of out­door fun.

Aquar­ius Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19

Such is your mood, Aquar­ius, any­one would think that Christ­mas had ar­rived! Could this be be­cause of a new love or a pro­mo­tion? What­ever it is, en­joy the mo­ment. Hap­pily, It does seem that your friends are up for hol­i­day shop­ping. Look­ing for bar­gains with a lover? Don’t over­spend! Your Luck: See how well things go when you are in a ‘can do’ mood. Who needs neg­a­tives any­way?

Gem­ini May 22 – June 21

Love, money, and com­mu­ni­ca­tions about the same, can be tricky this week. How­ever, think­ing too hard just seems to put your head in a spin! Have you been in this po­si­tion be­fore and, if so, what did you do? Was it the right move and, if not, what did you learn? This is where the past can help the fu­ture, Gem­ini. You need courage and a clear head. Your Luck: Or­gan­ise some­thing re­lax­ing for Sun­day. You will need to recharge your courage!

Li­bra Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23

It is usu­ally easy for you to be un­der­stand­ing. This week can be frus­trat­ing and it can be hard to be charm­ing. How­ever, re­alise that when oth­ers ir­ra­tional things it is not al­ways their fault. Some­one who seems a bit out of their com­fort zone needs your help. What you know about their past can be part of the so­lu­tion. Think back, then think ahead. Your Luck: By the week­end you should be more equipped to en­joy your­self with some­one spe­cial.

Pisces Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20

Prom­ises, prom­ises! Those that you make this week re­ally must be kept. In that case it is wise to choose your words care­fully. What you see as a fun and flip­pant mat­ter is se­ri­ous to some­one else. To avoid fric­tion over the hol­i­day be sure that you have in­vited all the VIPS. One omis­sion could see you in the dog­house mi­nus one figgy pud­ding! Your Luck: You are not eas­ily im­pressed. Even so some­one is go­ing all out to show how im­por­tant you are.

Can­cer June 22 – July 22

Ahead is a pas­sion­ate, com­pli­cated and con­fus­ing week! Your words be­come more im­por­tant both to your­self and oth­ers. Some­one who wants you to make a de­ci­sion is likely to be dis­ap­pointed. Re­ally, it is not worth rush­ing im­por­tant things. Take your time but do it care­fully. It is a mat­ter of tim­ing. Bring out bags of charm and spread it around. Your Luck: Fire all of your diplo­matic en­gines this week­end. A tricky sit­u­a­tion needs care­ful han­dling or avoid­ing.

Scor­pio Oc­to­ber 24 – Novem­ber 22

Oh, isn’t it great to be so in de­mand! No? Hmm. Well you need to get or­gan­ised if you are go­ing to please ev­ery­one who wants your at­ten­tion. Not one to hide un­der the du­vet, I am sure that you will man­age. What will be your re­ward, Scor­pio? Ap­pre­ci­a­tion from one spe­cial per­son makes it all worth­while. Now, where were we? Your Luck: Oh yes. Luck makes life run smoothly and there should be enough of it to go around for you this week­end.

Aries March 21 – April 20

A cre­ative week when you want to get on with your plans and clear up some small but ir­ri­tat­ing mat­ters. Leap into them be­fore con­fus­ing con­ver­sa­tions stop you in your tracks. As the week­end ap­proaches there is the hint of some­one chang­ing their mind. In a re­la­tion­ship mat­ter you may feel this needs your full at­ten­tion. De­ci­sions need mak­ing. Your Luck: This week­end could see you mak­ing big strides to clear up an awk­ward sit­u­a­tion. Be strong.

Leo July 23 – Au­gust 23

When loved ones are busy or far away it is tricky to have a de­cent con­ver­sa­tion. This week you need to try your best to smooth trou­bled wa­ters both at home and work. It is noth­ing that you have done wrong, many of us are hav­ing prob­lems this week. Just stay cool and de­lay de­ci­sions un­til you are sure. Avoid re­act­ing to that phrase ‘if you loved me...’ Your Luck: You are of­ten a bit pushy, Leo. Right now some­one may be push­ing you!
