Virgo Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

Be at your best and ready to make an im­por­tant first im­pres­sion mid­week. What starts as an or­di­nary day can throw up big sur­prises. When the New Moon shines on your fi­nances, be ready to act. What starts off as a small and ten­ta­tive of­fer could snow­ball and be just what you want! Con­fi­dence is up and down be­cause this is an un­usual time. Do­ing your best? Good! Your Luck: Some­one ask­ing lots of ques­tions could be more in­ter­ested in your heart than your answers.

Capricorn De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 20

Work closely with some­one with the knowl­edge that you need. In fact, you won’t know what you didn’t know un­til you know it! In­deed, a visit to an un­usual place re­ally stim­u­lates your mind and creative tal­ents. Sum­mer fan­cies turn the way of romance but work could get in the way if you have not been or­gan­ised. Build up a good im­pres­sion for the week­end. Your Luck: Leisure time. Put some en­ergy and imag­i­na­tion into leisure time. Do some­thing new.

Tau­rus April 21 – May 21

Lis­ten care­fully to those around you for some­thing im­por­tant you need to know. A task you are given may seem a bit cheeky. Be aware, though, that some­one in au­thor­ity waits to see your re­ac­tion. Some peo­ple want to spend more time with you but maybe find you hard to ap­proach. Has your work been tak­ing all of your at­ten­tion re­cently? Time to reset the bal­ance. Your Luck: Go some­where dif­fer­ent this week. Be it a lunchtime de­tour or a week­end so­cial, do it.

Libra Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23

Are you think­ing of end­ing a long-stand­ing re­la­tion­ship? Have you con­sid­ered that a good long chat could make the sit­u­a­tion bet­ter? This should be a light-hearted week. Ban­ish neg­a­tive thoughts and get out and have some fun! A loved one is urg­ing a trip or so­cial call. Why would you re­sist? Re­ally, you will so en­joy a so­cial event when you get there! Keep mov­ing. Your Luck: Over­think­ing a long-term re­la­tion­ship? Sim­ple solutions are of­ten the best!

Aquar­ius Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19

Some­one who stim­u­lates you in more ways than one is around this week­end. Be sure that you are in their com­pany. What you need now is light-hearted chat and a fresh out­look. Do it some­where ro­man­tic and you could be in for a sur­prise! Re­ally, when did you last do some­thing that was just for your­self? A change of at­ti­tude is easy when some­one else shares it. Your Luck: Work­ing with oth­ers to a com­mon goal is where your sat­is­fac­tion lies.

Gemini May 22 – June 21

Tak­ing a more re­laxed at­ti­tude brings the re­sult you need. In­deed, push­ing some­one to act could see them run in the op­po­site direc­tion! You are pa­tient if you are clear that, in time, you will get what you need. Think that time will never come? Try a less di­rect route and brush up on your charm. The per­son you are deal­ing with is sim­pler than you think. Your Luck: A charm­ing ap­proach and a gen­tle at­ti­tude may sur­prise you with its suc­cess!

Scorpio Oc­to­ber 24 – November 22

Cash should not be a prob­lem, which leaves you the freedom to plan ahead. Be­ing sin­gle-minded and with your thoughts on the task ahead is es­sen­tial. Loved ones want your at­ten­tion? Make some­thing spe­cial happen at the week­end so that they can look for­ward to it. Be­ing im­por­tant on so many dif­fer­ent fronts can be tir­ing in the long term. Now, where was that hol­i­day brochure? Your Luck: Apart from do­ing things for oth­ers, plan a lit­tle treat for your­self.

Pisces Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20

Be pre­pared to take what you want when the op­por­tu­nity comes. Life is not al­ways this easy. This is, and has been, a very emo­tional time. Jump­ing ahead when it comes to a chance to shine is just what you need. There is no hurry to go out to im­press. Just be­ing your­self brings its own re­ward. Ex­cite­ment comes and goes but in the end there is a big chunk of con­tent­ment. Your Luck: Knowing what you want is half­way to get­ting there. Now you need de­ter­mi­na­tion.

Can­cer June 22 – July 22

Your knowl­edge will be the key to open­ing an im­por­tant door this week. There is no point in try­ing to keep every­one else happy if you’re left dis­con­tented. This is a time for hon­esty and open­ness even if it makes you feel un­com­fort­able. That com­fort zone must some­times be breached to make real progress. You have a trump card: use it. Your Luck: Avoiding a sit­u­a­tion at the week­end may be the only way to de­lay a con­ver­sa­tion best left un­til next week.

Sagittariu­s November 23 – De­cem­ber 21

A bumpy start to the week should not put you off. An op­ti­mistic at­ti­tude shows that you have con­fi­dence (even if you don’t feel it!) Be with some­one who you can con­fide in at the week­end and speak hon­estly about your feel­ings. Any emo­tional block­age can make you feel less bright. Next week you’ll find that com­mu­ni­ca­tions are eas­ier and peo­ple more un­der­stand­ing. Your Luck: Don’t rule out romance but maybe wait un­til your thoughts are in order.

Aries March 21 – April 20

Keep a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude and plans run smoothly this week. Don’t ex­pect to be com­pletely sat­is­fied though. There are still things that you want to put in place and you are get­ting im­pa­tient. Keep the charm flow­ing and avoid harsh words. Be­ing so oc­cu­pied could see you miss a ro­man­tic ap­proach. This may be sub­tle but nonethe­less heart­felt. In­ter­ested? Your Luck: A ca­sual at­ti­tude can only go so far. At the week­end there is some­one well worth im­press­ing.
