Leo July 23 – Au­gust 23

Some time ago you de­cided on some­thing you re­ally wanted to do. As you take so much on, this de­sire may have slipped way down on your list of things to do. In a week that gives you some­thing of a breather why not visit that op­por­tu­nity again? What you gain in con­fi­dence will no doubt ben­e­fit every­one around you. Your Luck: There are some plea­sures in life that re­ally are more en­joy­able when done alone. A lit­tle self-in­dul­gence any­one?

Sagit­tar­ius November 23 – De­cem­ber 21

This time is all about ex­tend­ing your ex­pe­ri­ences and am­bi­tions. Are you go­ing to take that ex­cit­ing course? Will there sud­denly be the in­spi­ra­tion to start that in­cred­i­ble novel? Per­haps start­ing a sport or hobby with a friend ap­peals? What­ever it is, your mind and imag­i­na­tion are ready to take any op­por­tu­nity. Just don’t be dis­tracted by the ev­ery­day! Your Luck: We may think about the past and live in the present. The ques­tion is, what are you now plan­ning for your fu­ture?

Aries March 21 – April 20

Hav­ing spent last week try­ing to fig­ure out just what you were aim­ing for, this week brings some clar­ity. It is of­ten a chance re­mark or a change in some­one else’s sit­u­a­tion that holds the key. A lit­tle mys­tery that you’d maybe for­got­ten about has qui­etly been solv­ing it­self. Mr Poirot would be so pleased! Yes, put your lit­tle grey cells to work and plot some real fun. Your Luck: A bit of self-in­dul­gence and a sug­ges­tion from a friend can make for a pretty mem­o­rable week­end.

Virgo Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

Do you some­times get the feel­ing that you are taken for granted? It seems nice in a way be­cause it can bring home to us that we are re­li­able and even valu­able. Even so, it seems to be time you re­ceived a lit­tle bit back. This could be in the form of thanks or help with some­thing you want to do your­self. Clap your ver­bal hands and get no­ticed, then speak! Your Luck: Ac­tions may speak louder than words and you are about to be very active.

Capricorn De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 20

That ‘laced up’ at­ti­tude could all fall around your ears this week. Long held-back emo­tions may come to the fore. Oh, you could ig­nore them but do you re­ally want to? Give your­self the free­dom of self-ex­pres­sion. So what if it in­volves show­ing your raw self? Do you re­alise that be­ing less than per­fect and even vul­ner­a­ble can make you much more love­able? Your Luck: Shar­ing your thoughts and feel­ings can be great fun and you find out so much in the process.

Taurus April 21 – May 21

Be­ing sensitive to the feel­ings of oth­ers can be a gift when it comes to re­la­tion­ships. It may seem more invasive, how­ever, when ap­plied to a group of people. Much as these may be part of your life, some­times it is good to have a fresh view. Tak­ing a short trip to some­where un­fa­mil­iar but pleas­ant may be all that is needed to reboot your en­thu­si­asm and imag­i­na­tion. Your Luck: Re­mem­ber that a plea­sure shared is a plea­sure dou­bled. Who will you in­vite to a spe­cial place?

Libra Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23

There may be all sorts of thoughts and feel­ings crowd­ing in on you. We all know the feel­ing. Of course you are happy to con­sider oth­ers but you are ‘oth­ers’ also! Giv­ing a lit­tle more to your­self - more time, more thought, more fun - will not just ben­e­fit you. Liv­ing in the mo­ment can mean get­ting out and doing things that bring you back to the simple joys of childhood. Your Luck: There is an ac­tiv­ity or hobby out there with your name on it, isn’t there? Be more se­ri­ous about fun!

Aquarius Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19

You are so like a swan this week. No, I don’t mean that you have a long neck! It is easy for you to look calm and serene when you are re­ally ped­dling like a mad thing to keep up un­der­neath. Some­one has no­ticed, though, and would like to see you truly re­lax. How about a week­end tucked up to­gether on a grassy bank? No? Oh well, then use that fer­tile imag­i­na­tion! Your Luck: Romance is in the air. Some­one is likely wait­ing to share it with you, so move it!

Gem­ini May 22 – June 21

Sta­bil­ity is im­por­tant to you and un­der­stand­ably so. What­ever is at the cen­tre of your life helps to bring you through any un­ex­pected or un­pleas­ant times. So this week when you feel that things are not quite go­ing in the right di­rec­tion you know where to turn for a good opin­ion. While, as usual, doing things for oth­ers, spare some thought for your health and long-term well­be­ing. Your Luck: Ad­vice may be shared in any num­ber of places. Why not make yours a week­end to re­mem­ber?

Scorpio Oc­to­ber 24 – November 22

Take your­self back, in your mind, to a time when you were clear about what you wanted to be and do. No, re­ally. Was there an un­ful­filled wish that could still be pos­si­ble? Be sure to con­sider it this week. Your mind is sharp and your imag­i­na­tion free. Who knows, some­one close to you may have had ex­actly the same yearn­ing. Time to have that con­ver­sa­tion, maybe? Your Luck: Two minds re­ally do work bet­ter than one some­times. The hard­est part is start­ing the con­ver­sa­tion.

Pisces Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20

There are so many things around at the mo­ment that are truly an­noy­ing. People don’t al­ways see you as a sensitive soul. They may even plant their own prob­lems on you. Who needs that? It is time that you had a bit more fun in your life. Quit wait­ing for some­one else to pro­vide it for you. Given the choice, what would you re­ally like to do this week­end? Live in the mo­ment and en­joy. Your Luck: Don’t feel guilty if you want to get some se­cret plea­sure to en­joy alone.
