Can­cer June 22 – July 22

In a so­cial boost this week there is the chance of meet­ing some un­usual peo­ple. This trig­gers your cu­rios­ity and is mind-open­ing! When it comes to long-term friends be sure to keep in touch. When changes hap­pen you need to know about it. Ac­cept an un­usual char­ac­ter as they are with­out try­ing to change them. They may not be per­fect but then per­fec­tion could be bor­ing. Your Luck: Go­ing with the flow at the mo­ment suits your style per­fectly. That open mind will lead the way.

Scorpio Oc­to­ber 24 – Novem­ber 22

Quite the sparky one this week, aren’t you? Some­one who an­noyed you re­cently has spurred you on to show your inner feel­ings. Prac­ti­cal thoughts seem to fly out of the win­dow when your heart is in­volved. Be­ing the best that you can really boosts your con­fi­dence and chances of suc­cess. By keep­ing your dignity in­tact you are send­ing out the right mes­sage. Your Luck: Find­ing the path to some­one’s heart calls more on your in­tu­ition than any road map. Trust in it.

Pisces Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20

Al­though you love a peace­ful life, it will not be ac­cepted at any cost! The per­son try­ing to push you into a corner is likely to be on shaky ground. Their ar­gu­ment could col­lapse at any time. So rather than giv­ing in, try just turn­ing around and getting on with some­thing else. An­noy­ing, of course, but make it clear that you have other op­tions. Stay charm­ing to show how con­fi­dent you are. Your Luck: That ro­man­tic spark is within touch­ing dis­tance. Will you reach out?

Leo July 23 – Au­gust 23

Fam­ily mat­ters are up­beat. Cel­e­bra­tions are likely to trig­ger old mem­o­ries. For once you are al­lowed to share the past with loved ones and not be ac­cused of be­ing over-sen­ti­men­tal. Ro­man­tic love comes and goes and that can mean not tak­ing prom­ises too se­ri­ously. Re­mem­ber that, much as you like some­one, it is not guar­an­teed that they will ever change! Your Luck: Tak­ing life as it comes is easy un­til the mo­ment when you want to be in con­trol.

Sagittariu­s Novem­ber 23 – De­cem­ber 21

Try­ing to bring peace and har­mony into your life? Well there is sure to be some­one who makes that dif­fi­cult. Are you be­ing thrown a chal­lenge? Know­ing how good you are, you may con­sider this to be be­low you. Jump out of that stiff shirt and feel the free­dom of free choice. How good does it feel to be clear of all the expectatio­ns of oth­ers, not just your own? Your Luck: Tak­ing your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties too heav­ily? Re­mem­ber that life is also for liv­ing and feeling joy.

Aries March 21 – April 20

This is a time for mend­ing any­thing bro­ken, and that in­cludes friend­ships. Old gripes should now be cleared away and new path­ways opened to the fu­ture. Some­one who you thought you had ‘grown out of’ is still able to put a twin­kle in your eyes. Take a light-hearted attitude to any fresh pro­pos­als. Is it worth­while to rekin­dle this old flame? Prob­a­bly not if you are al­ready feeling warm enough! Your Luck: Hav­ing sev­eral op­tions can se­ri­ously boost your con­fi­dence. Great!

Virgo Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

There is a lot of ‘nest building’ go­ing on at the mo­ment and I do not just re­fer to our feath­ered friends! Some­one is send­ing so­cial sparks out in all direc­tions and, if you are in­ter­ested, speed is needed. Con­fi­dence can be built up grad­u­ally by al­ways stretching your­self that lit­tle bit more. Well, the ef­fort is un­avoid­able if you want suc­cess in this re­la­tion­ship. Your Luck: If you want to gain some­thing spe­cial then a very spe­cial ef­fort is in­volved.

Capricorn De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 20

See­ing the funny side of a sit­u­a­tion is just the be­gin­ning of a change of heart. Really, it is time that you stopped tak­ing ev­ery­thing in life so se­ri­ously! Do not see your­self as a work­horse or a con­ve­nience for oth­ers. In­deed, with­out you there are those who would se­ri­ously fail. What you vol­un­teer for at the week­end may se­ri­ously give your con­fi­dence and health a boost! Your Luck: The spark of romance does not al­ways last for ever. En­joy what is on of­fer with a light heart.

Taurus April 21 – May 21

Thoughts of love and romance come and go at the mo­ment. This is maybe be­cause you are oc­cu­pied with more ‘se­ri­ous’ mat­ters? Re­think what you really need in life and then get on with liv­ing in the mo­ment. This is when you will at­tract the most mates. Is it be­cause they see some­thing spon­ta­neous in you? Are you ready to brighten up the so­cial scene for those around you? Your Luck: Chan­nel en­ergy into inspiring those around you and it sud­denly be­comes fun.

Li­bra Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23

Some­one new in your life gives you a boost. Al­though you like a quiet life, the need for some­thing or some­one spe­cial is very strong. Be­ing flex­i­ble about who you meet this week could see you out of your com­fort zone but feeling like you’ve made real progress. You’re not one to put up with sec­ond best, how­ever, and you’ll speak your mind. Your Luck: Luck­ily, a cer­tain sharp­ness of mind can im­ply in­tel­lect. If it is an il­lu­sion, make sure it isn’t dis­cov­ered!

Aquarius Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19

Sur­prise those around you this week with a surge of en­ergy and re­newed en­thu­si­asm. It cer­tainly does seem that a break from your usual rou­tine has worked won­ders. Push­ing ahead with plans mid­week could see some op­po­si­tion. Some­one drag­ging their feet? It may be that their ob­jec­tions are not se­ri­ous. Is it really the only way that they can get your at­ten­tion? Your Luck: Don’t worry too much about be­ing sub­tle. If you are in­ter­ested in some­one, show it!

Gemini May 22 – June 21

Peo­ple seeking out your com­pany is noth­ing new. Of course, some of them want your time and at­ten­tion be­cause you are fun to be with. Some­one at the mo­ment, though, has a rather more long-term hope. Don’t dis­miss them just be­cause they have been around for a long time. We all change and they may now be just the tonic that you have been look­ing for. What have you to lose? Your Luck: There is an old song that urges you to be ‘tak­ing a chance on love.’ Is this your time?
