Leo July 23 – Au­gust 23

De­spite it be­ing a very so­cia­ble time you can get a bit bored. Even so, avoid pick­ing up on small things and nag­ging about them. It is easy to do, as a per­fec­tion­ist. Think on if urg­ing some­one to take on more than they can man­age. They may just sug­gest that you do it your­self! Your love life needs nur­tur­ing in this busy time. Also, when did you truly make a ro­man­tic ges­ture? Your Luck: Make some romance an ev­ery­day thought. It will dis­tract you from more som­bre mat­ters.

Sagit­tar­ius Novem­ber 23 – De­cem­ber 21

Although you see a sit­u­a­tion that some­one should take con­trol of this week, does it have to be you? Why not give some­one else the chance to show their tal­ents? Yours may well be busy or­gan­is­ing some so­cial events for fam­ily and friends any­way. Who looks at you to be the life and soul of the party? Well, get them to help out as well! Singing for their sup­per, maybe? Your Luck: Give oth­ers the chance to shine and use their en­ergy and tal­ents. You will be sur­prised.

Aries March 21 – April 20

Close re­la­tion­ships are very much in your mind at the mo­ment. Maybe you want to apol­o­gise to some­one or you feel that some­one you’ve lost touch with needs your at­ten­tion? Stir­ring up old emo­tions was never your thing but it seems the right time for ac­tion. A light-hearted ap­proach to a new friend seems to fit well with the kind of re­la­tion­ship you would like with them. Your Luck: Keep your ears open for an of­fer that slips qui­etly from some­one’s lips. Could be im­por­tant.

Virgo Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

Be­ing in­volved with a lo­cal project would suit you at the mo­ment, so much so that con­tin­ued in­volve­ment could fol­low. If ever there was a way to make in­stant friends, this could be it! This is a great time to get back in touch with friends and rel­a­tives who you’ve not seen for some time. What could be better than a bar­be­cue or kitchen buf­fet? Your Luck: Been a bit out of the so­cial scene? Get back out there and help a friend at the same time by tak­ing them along.

Capri­corn De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 20

There are so many ex­cit­ing things to get on with. Now, where will we start? Sorry but it has to be fi­nances! The spot­light is on home and cash and how that af­fects your work. Is there just too much to worry about in those ar­eas? Try get­ting some­one else to share the load. This could be by giv­ing you emo­tional sup­port and un­der­stand­ing or, even better still, a cash in­jec­tion! Your Luck: It is not nec­es­sary to tell ev­ery­one ev­ery­thing about your plans. Just what they need to know.

Tau­rus April 21 – May 21

When a sit­u­a­tion comes up this week you may re­alise that you have faced it in the past. So look back to find the best way to deal with it. There are sure to be changes that you would like in your work­ing life as this can be a rest­less time for you. Start the ball rolling by making sure that you are talk­ing to the right per­son about it. Your Luck: Go right to the top if you want to see some ac­tion. You are want­ing some good answers.

Li­bra Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23

There is a strong em­pha­sis on work or ca­reer this week. As it is also hol­i­day time, do make sure that you have ev­ery­thing or­gan­ised. Last-minute rushes could re­ally spoil the at­mos­phere and mood. Some­one who is push­ing your but­tons may get more than they bar­gained for when your whis­tle blows! The usu­ally calm Li­bra can be a big sur­prise when the steam blows out. Your Luck: Open your mind to the pos­si­bil­ity of an ex­tended exploratio­n of your real needs!

Aquar­ius Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19

Fam­ily dy­nam­ics are rife with con­tra­dic­tions. What does that mean to you? Yes, hard to get any­one to agree with you. Do they re­ally have to, though? Some mat­ters are best dealt with on a one-to-one ba­sis, aren’t they? Spruc­ing up your image will do no harm when meet­ing new peo­ple. In­deed, it could even trigger a bit of romance (if that is what you want). Your Luck: Un­wanted ro­man­tic at­ten­tion could be switched to some­one who would re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate it.

Gem­ini May 22 – June 21

Some kind of own­er­ship dis­pute or an un­wel­come change at work could set your hack­les up this week. Try ig­nor­ing it for a while to see if it just goes away. If you do de­cide to take ad­vice, keep it light and friendly. This is a time for you to be get­ting out and en­joy­ing your­self, not sweat­ing over bor­ing papers! Your Luck: A light-hearted and gen­tle ap­proach to a new friend brings re­sults.

Scor­pio Oc­to­ber 24 – Novem­ber 22

Are there those around you who want to take up all of your spare time? The an­swer may be to be su­per-busy on some­thing else. It can be tir­ing and ir­ri­tat­ing to try and slot into every lit­tle niche that oth­ers make for you. Look out­side of your usual routine for an es­cape route that sounds im­por­tant. Hey, maybe you will even find one! You are most im­por­tant to you. Your Luck: Look af­ter your­self and the rest will learn to do the same. In­de­pen­dence needs prac­tice.

Pisces Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20

Think­ing too much or too deeply can cause wob­bles in the well­be­ing area. Your mind can be a bit of a mys­tery. How, then, can you ex­pect oth­ers to know what you want? How? You have to tell them. Simply and in clear lan­guage state what seems to be the pretty ob­vi­ous. To get a re­sponse, though, you may have to ruf­fle a few feath­ers! Your Luck: Be very fussy about your pa­per­work this week. Wast­ing time look­ing for some­thing last minute gives a bad im­pres­sion.

Can­cer June 22 – July 22

Have you been burn­ing the can­dle at both ends? Watch out for those hot wax drips then! Se­ri­ously, you do need to pace your­self more to build up your en­ergy. Although you love do­ing things for oth­ers, have a thought for your own well­be­ing. A part­ner­ship seems to be a bit shaky, but are you reading too much into it? Could the other per­son just be feel­ing a bit un­der the weather for some rea­son? Your Luck: Bear in mind that there are more ex­pla­na­tions for things than the ob­vi­ous.
