Aquar­ius Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19

You are on an emo­tional high this week, bring­ing clar­ity to most sit­u­a­tions. When you get to the point when you stop sort­ing out the dilem­mas of oth­ers, you have ar­rived! A gen­eral dis­sat­is­fac­tion in your love life may be felt – or ig­nored. What are you afraid of? Will you stick with what you know or ven­ture fur­ther afield? The heart and in­tu­ition con­flict. Your Luck: Your first in­stinct may be the best one. Cer­tainly it is some­thing that you have tried to face be­fore.

Gem­ini May 22 – June 21

Want­ing to be free to pur­sue your own goals needs a bit of work yet. There is a need to re­as­sure those on the home front that you are plan­ning ahead. Be seen to take re­spon­si­bil­ity. This may mean think­ing hard about what you want and how you are go­ing to get it. Leav­ing a cer­tain amount to chance means be­ing flex­i­ble and not ex­pect­ing per­fec­tion. Those who do so are eas­ily dis­ap­pointed. Your Luck: Do­ing some­thing cre­ative is sur­pris­ingly pleas­ing.


Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23

Tak­ing charge of your health and well­be­ing may be long over­due. This is a year for get­ting rid of some of those stresses and strains. Don’t try to please ev­ery­one or you will run your­self ragged. Join­ing a rel­a­tive in a fun jaunt brings you closer to­gether. It also gives the chance to com­pare your thoughts for the fu­ture. Love can cure many ills. Your Luck: Be pre­pared to show more of your emo­tions when it comes to friends.

Pisces Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20

Want to try some­thing new to boost your in­come? This is a lucky week over­all and you can only be held back by your own thoughts. What you fear could be the very thing that helps you thrive. When the an­swer is sim­ple it is tempt­ing to look for some­thing more pro­found. Be­ing part of a team taps into ev­ery­thing that is lack­ing in your emo­tional life. Your Luck: The road to sat­is­fac­tion is right in front of you!

Can­cer June 22 – July 22

Need oth­ers to come in line with you? Ask nicely. Be­ing too pushy could see them scut­tling in the op­po­site di­rec­tion! This is a time to trust your in­stincts. When life seems a bit like a puz­zle, make sure you have all the pieces to start with. As strongly as some­one is mak­ing their case to you, that does not mean they are right. Some­one shout­ing loud­est does not im­press you. Your Luck: Cast your net a lit­tle wider when seek­ing new friends. Try some­thing dif­fer­ent.

Scor­pio Oc­to­ber 24 – No­vem­ber 22

When fired up about some­thing it is hard for you to be diplo­matic. Even so, curb your more ex­treme com­ments when deal­ing with a hot is­sue. A sit­u­a­tion that seems to be go­ing nowhere fast is an­noy­ing. You may have tried nag­ging and coax­ing to no avail. Just step aside and get on with some­thing else. There is noth­ing like dis­in­ter­est to spur oth­ers into ac­tion. Your Luck: When the don­key in the room won’t move, walk away and it will fol­low.

Aries March 21 – April 20

Your opin­ion is im­por­tant and sought out. It is some­thing of a se­ri­ous week to be­gin with and de­ci­sions need to be made. Hav­ing said that, some of those de­ci­sions are ex­cit­ing and stim­u­lat­ing. In­deed, you are pleased to have them. Tak­ing charge of your health and well­be­ing has to be a pri­or­ity, so avoid the chance of burn­ing your­self out. Stay ac­tive and en­ergy will also stay high. Your Luck: Ex­pect oth­ers to pull their weight and be ready to re­mind them of it.

Leo July 23 – Au­gust 23

Al­though some­one is try­ing to get you to move a plan along faster, they are un­likely to suc­ceed. As this New Year dawns it is clear that you must learn to say ‘no’. When oth­ers be­gin to think for them­selves they will learn a strong les­son. Go for what you need and want your­self. It will make you stronger, more con­fi­dent and much more will­ing to put in that ex­tra ef­fort. Your Luck: Be­ing part of some­thing new re­ally pleases you. A sense of ex­cite­ment comes from ef­fort.

Sagit­tar­ius No­vem­ber 23 – De­cem­ber 21

There is some­thing sparky about you this week and, in­deed, this month. Some­one or some­thing that has been hold­ing you back is now seen clearly. Not con­tent to stay stuck in the same place, you seek free­dom. This may not be overnight but if you don’t start you could fail. What would that mean to your cre­ative fu­ture and suc­cess? Your Luck: For­tune favours the brave. Does that ap­ply to you now?

Tau­rus April 21 – May 21

Want­ing to get out and get things done sees you off to a fly­ing start. So sin­gle-minded are you that oth­ers may see you as blink­ered. Dodge any neg­a­tive com­ments by keep­ing up the pace of change. Don’t ex­pect ev­ery­one to agree with your at­ti­tude. That is be­cause they are not you and fail to un­der­stand. Edgi­ness runs through the week and makes you ques­tion ev­ery­thing. Your Luck: Keep­ing phys­i­cally ac­tive stops that neg­a­tive en­ergy bring­ing your mood down.

Virgo Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

When asked your opin­ion, be pre­pared to be open and hon­est. You don’t need to agree with oth­ers just to keep them happy. In­deed, this is a time to do what is best for your­self both in the longer and short term. Qual­ity leisure time could mean tak­ing up a hobby that gives both phys­i­cal and men­tal sat­is­fac­tion. Good re­la­tion­ships do not have to de­pend on sac­ri­fices. Your Luck: Don’t latch on to the first thing that ap­peals. Some­thing dif­fer­ent means stim­u­la­tion.
