Leo July 23 – August 23
It may be hard to shift people and get them to make decisions at the moment. Frustrations could lead to sharp words which are best avoided. Maybe through social means you can wake others up? Getting everyone together may be resisted but could get things moving. Try to add on a bit of relaxation afterwards. How long is it since you had some really good fun? Your Luck: Not feeling very bouncy? Use a bit of hot air to blow up your balloon.
Virgo August 24 – September 23
Caring less about what others think and more about what you need is important for you this week. Gaining more confidence in yourself and your abilities means not listening to those who, let’s face it, really don’t know you that well! This is your life and, if others want to be a part of it, they must show that they care and stop criticising or ignoring your needs. Your Luck: What makes other people think that they are so perfect? Hold up that mirror!
Libra September 24 – October 23
Social change is always unsettling at first. What has recently happened seems at odds with what you would have expected. Fate has strange ways of turning us in a new direction, and not always at the time we thought it would happen. As the weekend draws near it becomes clear who it is that will point the way forward. The two of you need to talk and not avoid the big question. Your Luck: Have a little more optimism. Blow away that big dark cloud that is hanging over you!
Scorpio October 24 – November 22
Having gotten used to high emotion recently, now you must tone everything down and, if possible, take a break. No need for an exotic holiday (although that’d be nice!). A few days with a friend or relative should do the trick. As a new page is turned you need to fully understand the one you are leaving. It is easy to glamorise a period of time that seemed ideal. Your Luck: Imagine yourself in a circle with ‘different’ on the inside and ‘better’ on the outside. Get to better.
Sagittarius November 23 – December 21
Too much to do? Not enough time to do it in? Slowing down a bit can help as it gives the chance to make a clear plan. Organisation can sometimes be a bad word for you when you want to avoid being tied down. Even so, it can work for you now. Why waste time on small matters when you can jump into the big picture? You know where you are going then, do you? Your Luck: Confidence may be up and down so why not just go with the up?
Capricorn December 22 – January 20
Some days you feel confident and on others you feel ineffective. Is that really down to you? Maybe others undermine your self image either by being awkward or trying to ignore your needs. Step back and think. Could you get the reactions that you need by not always being available or agreeable? Could you get away from all this and just go and have some fun for a few days? Your Luck: In the end actions speak louder than words in many situations. Get moving.
Aquarius January 21 – February 19
Being yourself sometimes involves being at odds with others. Don’t let this worry you. A show of confidence in what you are doing now makes those around you realise your strengths. Easygoing as you can be, you must be clearly able to put yourself first. At the end of the day this is for everyone’s benefit. After all, who wants a weak leader? We have enough of those! Your Luck: Feel that you are being watched? Well my dear, then put on a good display!
Pisces February 20 – March 20
Although you normally swim with the tide there are times when you want to go against the flow. This is especially true at the moment when you really need to do your own thing. It is basic to your nature to question what matters even if the structures have been in place for some time. The need to move on to something new is now quite overwhelming. Do it in a planned and calm way though. Your Luck: Time for changes? Then get out and change the times.
Aries March 21 – April 20
In a quieter week that threatens to be boring, keep your mind sharp by looking ahead. It is great to have time to catch up on smaller, essential tasks. Even so, too much inactivity can make you feel blue. Can you now clear out your clutter and get to grips with longer-term finances? A little pampering would not go amiss, either! Do something just to feel good inside. Your Luck: Indulge your senses and whims and feel the sense of freedom that it brings.
Taurus April 21 – May 21
You don’t mind a bit of disruption as you know it can bring good changes. At the moment it could be the best way to jog you out of a sense of dull routine. So when a friend suggests that you try something different, why not go for it? This week something that you read or see gives a sense of relief. Yes, there is always someone who has bigger problems! This moment could be an emotional turning point. Your Luck: Be flexible in your mind but consider your own needs also.
Gemini May 22 – June 21
In a week that will stir strong emotions, wait before responding verbally. Words have extra meaning when feelings run high. This may be a week that helps you to clear the air. Anything that has been brewing for some time comes up with a strong taste, doesn’t it? Time is likely to be on your side. Think carefully and be kind to yourself and others (if possible!) Your Luck: A sharp tongue and a staring eye will get you attention but will not solve the problem. Think.
Cancer June 22 – July 22
The need to confide in someone is strong in a week of emotions and turmoil. Some exchanges help to clear the air and, eventually, make you feel better. Others need you to take one step back before reacting spontaneously. Other people can be very testing of your patience but there is someone who understands and has known the same situations. Seek them out. Your Luck: You don’t have to look too far away to find the emotional support that you need.
