Woman’s Day (New Zealand)
VIRGO 24 AUG – 23 SEP
It’s your turn to shine! Image overhauls are written in the stars, so toss out anything old or unflattering and make way for the new improved you. If a spring fitness kick is on the agenda, some new exercise gear should get you off to a flying start. STAR TIP Lunches and casual catch-ups might turn into major networking sessions. NAT BASS The star, who turns 47 on 1 September, is meticulous about health and fitness.
Libra SEP 24 – OCT 23
As Mercury stimulates your sign, events might unfold rapidly. A clash of opinions could force a showdown, but almost simultaneously, happy news leaves you buzzing. Disperse any residual tension with a gossipy catch-up – and an active weekend.
STAR TIP Saturday’s community-minded stars should act like a healing tonic.
Scorpio OCT 24 – NOV 22
Fitness and fun are merging! Joining forces with others is your best strategy this month, and there’s a bonus. Lifestyle changes should draw couples closer, while for singles, a new pastime might expand your social circle and your dating pool as well.
STAR TIP Look for an appliance that could encourage healthier eating habits.
Sagittarius NOV 23 – DEC 22
It’s all happening! Mercury is striking up conversations at the drop of a hat, but resist the urge to “overshare”, or trust could be broken. If pent-up emotions need an outlet, cycling or dancing might prove therapeutic – not just for you, but for a loved one, too.
STAR TIP September’s socially charged sky could turn you into the life of the party.
Capricorn DEC 23 – JAN 20
Saying no can be hard for you, but if you’re under pressure, boundaries may need to be set. Changes involving your work should leave you feeling happier, while on the health or fitness front, a new approach could produce impressive results.
STAR TIP If building strength is a goal, get the ball rolling on Thursday or Friday.
Aquarius JAN 21 – FEB 19
Your inventive approach is impressive! Many Aquarians will discover hidden reservoirs of talent through spring, so launch into something you’ve always wanted to do. If finances are playing on your mind, bounce your ideas off someone you respect.
STAR TIP A social weekend awaits! Just don’t forget to count those drinks.
Pisces FEB 20 – MAR 20
You may be brimming over with grand plans, but don’t ruin things by rushing in. On the upside, markets and garage sales might feel like treasure troves. Brushing up your DIY skills might be a smart move, particularly if repairs or renos are in the pipeline.
STAR TIP If you’re playing the dating game, stick to double dates this weekend.
Aries MAR 21 – APR 20
If your feisty side needs an outlet, don’t get mad, get moving. With Mars spurring you on, it’s time to step out of your comfort zone at work, join a like-minded group or revive a flagging fitness kick. By late spring you may be running marathons!
STAR TIP Upgrading your walking shoes or hiking boots might be a smart idea.
Taurus APR 21 – MAY 21
Don’t underestimate yourself, Taurus. Your creative powers are hitting a peak this month, and with Mars stimulating your finances, you’re full of big ideas. Projects launched under Friday’s fertile stars could exceed all expectations, so dive on in.
STAR TIP For singles, someone new on the scene might make things interesting.
Gemini MAY 22 – JUN 21
Mischievous Mars is demanding action, so find something (or someone!) who makes your pulse quicken, and take the plunge. Festivals and cultural events should be fun, in fact, anything creative or cutting edge should be right up your alley.
STAR TIP As Cyndi Lauper so aptly sang, “Let your true colours shine through.”
Cancer JUN 22 – JUL 23
Prepare for a mind-expanding month. Whether it’s formal studies or casual encounters, you’re ready to embrace new ideas – and people too. If you need a confidence boost, why not update your look with some colourful new accessories?
STAR TIP Feeling stiff or creaky? Yoga or Pilates classes might straighten you out.
Leo JUL 24 – AUG 23
Ready to liven things up? New experiences should recharge your batteries this month, plan some unusual excursions, hit the bright lights or try a new sport. If that travel bug is biting, why not jump aboard a train or surprise a faraway friend?
STAR TIP Keep your eyes peeled for lastminute deals or tickets on the weekend.
