24 AUGUST -23 SEPTEMBER
24 SEPTEMBER – 23 OCTOBER No one could blame you for wanting the best for those you love and care for—but do you have the time and resources to be their main benefactor? Probably not. Under the influence of a Sun-Neptune clash there’s a danger you’ll assume responsibilities you could never hope to fulfil.Why risk causing disappointment all round?
24 OCTOBER – 22 NOVEMBER
At first you may lack the confidence to address controversial issues with some discerning individuals. However, by mid-September, you’ll decide that if you don’t speak up, nobody else will. Prepare to tap into a side of yourself you’ve rarely accessed until now. Look forward to all the learning that comes from the feedback you’re given.
23 NOVEMBER – 21 DECEMBER Unusual demands being made on you will keep you on your toes. However, this must not deprive you of the opportunity to engage with someone on an intensely personal level about topics that are close to your heart.Without forcing the issue, make sure you express sentiments that you’ve previously kept very much to yourself.
22 DECEMBER - 20 JANUARY Having missed out on an intriguing journey or venture, you’ll feel entitled to compensate yourself in some way. Mercury entering Virgo should generate ideas on what to do and how to do it, while also bringing out that articulate side of you with which you’re about to persuade others to back you all the way.
21 JANUARY – 19 FEBRUARY On certain occasions in the past, you may have subscribed to the views of others regarding a complex situation. So your sudden determination to promote your own ideals and opinions will surprise quite a few people, not least yourself.Will you regret going against the consensus? Absolutely not, whatever the outcome.
20 FEBRUARY – 20 MARCH
In a bid to add romantic or poetic touches to a situation that’s losing its spark, you may be told you’re going too far.Try persuading the other person concerned that the two of you can gain a lot by throwing caution to the wind to make you feel more liberated and unencumbered than ever before.
Even though you’re known to take your commitments seriously, especially within one particular area, you may not have been quite as conscientious as usual in recent weeks. Be glad the cosmos is reminding you that those who rely on you in some way do so for a very good reason. You cannot let them down. 21 MARCH – 20 APRIL Unexpected developments are likely to benefit friends, colleagues and yourself. However, you must not let Jupiter’s liaison with Pluto convince you that if you push harder than ever, the rewards will be enormous. Deep down you know that, under such circumstances, that’s not the way it works. Moderation is your greatest ally.
21 APRIL – 21 MAY
Much as you might resent the defiant attitude of relatives or companions, you may have to admit that your recent behaviour is the root cause of the problem.Although you might not want to eat humble pie and accept your share of the blame, you certainly should acknowledge the part you had to play in whatever went wrong.
22 MAY – 21 JUNE
Allow yourself to focus on managing your home and family affairs, no matter how much pressure you’re under to perform elsewhere.Those on the outside might find it hard to accept that your loved ones must come first. It’s up to you to make them see that only you can decide where your priorities truly lie.
22 JUNE – 23 JULY Somebody lacking the inspiration to capitalise on an unusual situation might welcome the kind of advice you can offer. However, Mars moving into Aquarius means that even though you have the energy to put into this situation, there’s a chance that you’ll want instant results. If you can manage your expectations, everyone wins.
24 JULY – 23 AUGUST Money will be a talking point but it’s not to overshadow the need to discuss fairly intimate matters with someone close. It’s all too easy to shy away from conversations that require you and the other person concerned to be entirely open and transparent— perhaps even to bare your souls. Stop hiding, start talking.
