Oc­to­ber 24 – Novem­ber 22

Mov­ing on from a rather dry and even bor­ing week, your progress is clear to see. Of course you want life to be more ex­cit­ing! Start by plan­ning some­thing un­usual for the fes­tive sea­son. The days right af­ter are ripe to get peo­ple out. Chivvy them along on their New Year res­o­lu­tions. Too early to plan that? I don’t think so, es­pe­cially if it’s some­thing spe­cial! Your Luck: Hav­ing a bit of a clear out of clos­ets and emo­tions is what you need now. Hoover, blub, shout. What­ever!


Fe­bru­ary 20 – March 20

So much en­ergy! Oth­ers may be­come tired out try­ing to keep up with you. Pay spe­cial at­ten­tion to some­one who is try­ing to make light of an ill­ness. They may not want to make a fuss, but that doesn’t stop you from mak­ing a fuss over them! The chances are that you both need a quiet and gen­tle love right now. There may be heal­ing to do and amends to make. Your Luck: Spend­ing time with na­ture clears your mind. Why not share this with some­one you care about?

Can­cer June 22 – July 22

The em­pha­sis on your so­cial life turns more to your work this week. You can still com­bine the two at the week­end if you wish. Keep life sim­ple, es­pe­cially fi­nan­cially, al­though it may seem like a rather bor­ing pe­riod. Did some­one share a worry or se­cret with you last week? Con­sider com­ing back to them for an up­date. Just an en­cour­ag­ing word may be enough. Your Luck: Be pre­pared for your ‘to do’ list to be more about mak­ing you happy than about oth­ers. It is needed.

Sagit­tar­ius Novem­ber 23 – De­cem­ber 21

The thought of a late hol­i­day or a week­end away is tempt­ing. If there is noth­ing to stop you, then do think about it se­ri­ously. Oth­ers, both so­cially and in busi­ness, are want­ing to meet you. Are you ready to show your true self and even boast of your tal­ents? Please do. It is un­likely they would be im­pressed with a ‘church mouse’ even if you have a sweet squeak! Your Luck: Be ready to avoid a seis­mic squab­ble within the fam­ily. Maybe that week­end away is near?


March 21 – April 20

A more light-hearted ap­proach this week fi­nally clears the air. Misun­der­stand­ings hap­pen from time to time de­spite our best ef­forts. It’s eas­ier to con­cen­trate now you have less to think about. Keep­ing an eye on fi­nances prob­a­bly means say­ing ‘no’ to a few lux­ury items. Of course, if some­one else wants to buy them for you, that’s an­other mat­ter! Al­low oth­ers to show their sup­port. Your Luck: Be guided by the suc­cess sto­ries of oth­ers you know.


July 23 – Au­gust 23

In what is still a very busy week, you may have to make lists of your lists! Still, ev­ery ef­fort is worth the star­tling progress that’s pos­si­ble. Avoid, mid­week, let­ting sen­ti­men­tal­ity push you in the wrong di­rec­tion. Be sure that any­thing you of­fer is de­liv­er­able and de­sir­able. The more or­gan­ised you are, the louder suc­cess bangs on your door. Fancy some peace and quiet? Your Luck: This week sig­nals a chance to think again about a new de­ci­sion. A new month, a new strat­egy?

Capri­corn De­cem­ber 22 – Jan­uary 20

This is a good time of the year to de­cide which friends you re­ally want to spend time with. As you be­come busier it would be silly to waste time with te­dious peo­ple. It can also lead to you ne­glect­ing those who re­ally mat­ter. Fam­ily be­comes im­por­tant with the news of a new ad­di­tion. A seis­mic shift in your emo­tions is not un­ex­pected. Even so, it comes as a sur­prise to you. Your Luck: Feel­ings run high and you get, at last, some ap­pre­ci­a­tion for your hard work.

Tau­rus April 21 – May 21

Still work­ing your way through that ‘to do’ list? Well, keep go­ing. Feel the sense of sat­is­fac­tion when you fin­ish it! If a task seems too much at the mo­ment, let oth­ers be gen­er­ous with their time. Work­ing to­gether can mean find­ing sim­pler ways to reach your goals. Two heads are bet­ter than one! Find­ing it hard to con­cen­trate? Now where is that list again? Your Luck: There are times when it is right to con­cen­trate on your own needs and emo­tional crav­ings. Right now!


Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

Are you think­ing of mak­ing changes at work? Do you see how open the pos­si­bil­i­ties are for you? Al­though you have to con­sider fi­nances, split­ting your time could be as good as mak­ing a gi­gan­tic de­ci­sion. This is the time to make the most of your charm and show your value in dif­fer­ent ar­eas. You won’t re­alise how ex­pe­ri­enced you are un­til you set it down on pa­per. Your Luck: It is hard to see your­self as you re­ally are. Maybe con­cen­trate on how you want to be?

Aquar­ius Jan­uary 21 – Fe­bru­ary 19

Re­cent ques­tions have given you many an­swers. Feel free to talk again if some­thing changes or is not clear. There may have been a few guilty feel­ings over the last week. Maybe your progress seems un­fair when com­pared to oth­ers. No, you de­serve luck and that is what it mostly is. Al­though you can cer­tainly in­flu­ence things, yours is not the last word. Your Luck: You feel like sort­ing out prob­lems and ra­tio­nal­is­ing life. Not so easy but, hey! Don’t you just love a chal­lenge?

Gem­ini May 22 – June 21

Some­one who you worked with on a project last week is still prov­ing their worth. En­cour­age tal­ent where you see it. The fact that you are true to your word brings ad­mi­ra­tion. It could even prompt some­one to make a ro­man­tic ges­ture! Are you able to help some­one who is fac­ing a prob­lem that you have been through your­self? It shows that your knowl­edge is in de­mand. Your Luck: Feel­ing un­com­fort­able about a cer­tain friend­ship? You re­ally need to clear the air now.

Li­bra Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23

Be­ing well on the way to putting some­thing right, you can af­ford to feel a lit­tle sat­is­fac­tion. Keep a sharp eye open for any­one or any­thing that tries to side­track your pur­pose. Yes, it sounds like a pretty in­tense week, doesn’t it? There are short, bright and even sparkling mo­ments, though. En­ergy may not be high and any health prob­lems need deal­ing with promptly. Your Luck: Do ev­ery­thing you can to build your self-con­fi­dence. Mea­sure your­self by your own stan­dards.
