Li­bra Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23

A mix-up over a date sets you think­ing about an old friend. Is it co­in­ci­dence or should you get in touch? Well, you don’t want to be look­ing back later and ask­ing your­self ‘what if’ do you? A shift in at­ti­tudes at work seems con­fus­ing. This is not of your do­ing, but try to be help­ful. So­cially you may want to keep sep­a­rate from some col­leagues for a while. Be­ing diplo­matic could be hard. Your Luck: Try­ing to please ev­ery­one can be tricky if not im­pos­si­ble. Keep it sim­ple.

Aquar­ius Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19

Are you feel­ing re­ally am­bi­tious this month? This is your time. Hol­i­days can dis­rupt plans, which loved ones may find hard. Try to in­volve them and ex­plain what is ex­cit­ing you. New friends met this week show a fresh ap­proach that re­ally fits in with your own way of think­ing. Could your so­cial life now ex­pand and start to of­fer the kind of fam­ily that you ad­mire? Your Luck: Stay­ing pa­tient when oth­ers can’t see your point of view is hard but very char­ac­ter-build­ing.

Gem­ini May 22 – June 21

Praise this week comes from dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions but it’s great to have. Why don’t peo­ple say ‘thank you’ more of­ten? Are they afraid of look­ing soft? Good com­mu­ni­ca­tions make for warm feel­ings, and that’s what you can have this week. Life doesn’t al­ways fit in with help­ing oth­ers, but when you do, what a dif­fer­ence it makes to your mood! Your Luck: Pick­ing up on an al­most for­got­ten in­vi­ta­tion this week­end shows that some big changes have taken place.

Scor­pio Oc­to­ber 24 – Novem­ber 22

A spon­ta­neous part­ner cer­tainly makes a few sparks fly. Isn’t it one of those things that you love about them? Maybe, but try and stay one step ahead. An in­vi­ta­tion at the week­end has to have the right mix of peo­ple or it could turn a lit­tle tricky. Some­one new com­ing into the fam­ily brings a breath of fresh air. By the week­end you have some­thing to cel­e­brate. Your Luck: Keep­ing en­ergy high means get­ting lots of sleep and keep­ing an eye on that diet!

Pisces Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20

There are some crazy peo­ple around with some crazy ideas. Could you be­come one of them? Choose your ac­tiv­i­ties care­fully or a con­fused mind may lead you astray. Vis­it­ing rel­a­tives seem to un­der­stand your sit­u­a­tion more than you imag­ined. Why does this shock you? They are per­haps more ob­ser­vant than you re­alise. It’s worth lis­ten­ing to their point of view. Your Luck: Although you need to swim against the tide this week, pace your­self and be ob­ser­vant.

Can­cer June 22 – July 22

Drop­ping a few hints mid­week gets the re­sponse you’ve been wait­ing for. It’s all in the tim­ing. Choose a re­laxed mo­ment. Some­one who needs your help may be slow to ask, so do be aware. With con­fi­dence and en­ergy high, get mov­ing on some­thing new. It may not seem ex­cit­ing at first, but it soon will! Are you re­ally sur­rounded by crazy peo­ple, or are you just too sane? Your Luck: It’s so good when a plan comes to­gether. You may make it hap­pen more of­ten.

Sagit­tar­ius Novem­ber 23 – De­cem­ber 21

A bloom­ing re­la­tion­ship takes up plenty of your time. It may not be your own but needs your at­ten­tion any­way. You may feel there is a need to guide some­one and maybe there is. Even so, you are only able to do your best. Home life takes up chunks of your time. En­thu­si­as­tic as you are, this will lose its fun el­e­ment if you try to do too much too soon. Your Luck: Choose a tasty gift for your part­ner at the week­end as a way to show how much you care.

Aries March 21 – April 20

Long-awaited meet­ings come to­gether pretty quickly this week. How to fit them all in is the ques­tion! Well, you wanted to be more ef­fi­cient – now is your chance. Be­ing ex­pected to make good on a prom­ise from the spring? That may also be slot­ted in even if a time change is nec­es­sary. Work­ing so hard can give quite an ap­petite for fun at the week­end. Your Luck: Grab your friend and take that trip. Don’t you de­serve a bit of ro­mance and a change of scenery?

Leo July 23 – Au­gust 23

Con­sid­er­ing all the so­cial things hap­pen­ing this month, it’s sur­pris­ing that you still feel lonely. Do you have too many pos­si­bil­i­ties? Are you re­ally tuned in to the right per­son? Nar­row down to the places you re­ally want to be and the peo­ple you hope to meet. Only then are you mak­ing a bee­line for some­one spe­cial. Put in the ex­tra ef­fort. Your Luck: Some­one wants to be wooed. Do you re­mem­ber how to do that? This could bring a change of heart.

Capri­corn De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 20

Stormy mo­ments in a re­la­tion­ship turn to pas­sion mid­week. This is a fiery pe­riod and there is a need to choose your words care­fully. Misun­der­stand­ings are not so easy to ex­plain right now. Your own ideas of hap­pi­ness change from day to day as you try to make sense of ev­ery­thing. Maybe you don’t have to find the so­lu­tion. Maybe just wait? Your Luck: Be­ing very hope­ful that a re­la­tion­ship will pull you along with it? Stay flexible.

Tau­rus April 21 – May 21

An out­dated sys­tem at work or home is re­ally ir­ri­tat­ing you at the mo­ment. Make sug­ges­tions but be heavy on the de­tail. Oth­ers may not want to show their lack of knowl­edge. Do you re­ally care if you don’t get the praise for sort­ing it out? Not if it makes life eas­ier any­way! In­crease so­cial ac­tiv­ity by join­ing in with neigh­bours or friends on a lo­cal project. Your Luck: Does rais­ing money for char­ity sound a bit bor­ing? Well, not once the bug bites you. Try it.

Virgo Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

Ad­vance no­tice of a change on the work front is wel­come. Even so, things are still very fluid in this area and could get even bet­ter. Try not to be im­pa­tient. Hav­ing had a good time this year it would be tempt­ing to book up for next. Bear in mind that many chances are yet to be of­fered that you may want to ac­cept be­fore then. New be­gin­nings are ex­cit­ing and come along at any time. Your Luck: Noth­ing is set in con­crete right now. Would you re­ally want it to be?
