You’re so cre­ative, you could han­dle any­thing you set your heart on. But there’s an­other part of you that’s too afraid of fail­ure to take risks. What do you have to lose? If you’re work­ing for some­one, you’re not hav­ing a good time. If you’re un­em­ployed, what’s a few more days? List your tal­ents and skills. It’s longer than you thought, isn’t it? Now take a few tiny steps to­wards creat­ing a busi­ness. Don’t waste time fret­ting. The uni­verse ap­plauds ac­tion. Once you move for­ward, the en­er­gies will rush in to help you. And while you’re wait­ing, open your heart to love. Just be­cause you’re eas­ily bored doesn’t mean you can’t en­joy what you have. Sure, your ex­pec­ta­tions are in­sane. Cer­tainly, it’s hard for you to recog­nise a good thing un­der your nose. But try ap­pre­ci­at­ing ev­ery­thing you have. Be grate­ful for ev­ery morsel.

TAURUS Apr 20 - May 20

Your new mantra: “Work is not the most im­por­tant thing in my life. I am.” Sounds easy. It’s not. If you put your hap­pi­ness at the front of ev­ery op­tion, you’ll make very dif­fer­ent choices. Now all you have to do is fig­ure out what makes you happy. Slowly. You’ve spent your life con­vinc­ing your­self that duty, dis­ci­pline and hard work are a nat­u­ral part of life. You left a few items off the list.

GEM­INI May 21 - June 20

There’s noth­ing you can’t han­dle this week – busi­ness deals, pub­lic pre­sen­ta­tions, cre­ative ideas, pas­sion­ate loves ... name your poi­son. Of course, your bur­geon­ing con­fi­dence could be mildly an­noy­ing for those who don’t have any, but don’t worry about them. Just try for some com­pas­sion now and then. Not ev­ery­one has your ad­van­tages, you know. Or your end­less tal­ents.

CANCER June 21 - Jul 22

Ever wanted to be a healer of some sort? Start by us­ing your re­mark­able gifts in any way you can. Just of­fer to help – and trust your­self. If you’re pa­tient, you’ll soon start be­ing no­ticed. Mean­while, hang on to ev­ery penny. Fi­nan­cial re­wards could be de­layed a while. Not that you'll be overly con­cerned. A love af­fair will dis­tract you from such te­dious de­tails. Mean­while, get the ball rolling. Buy your­self some flow­ers.

LEO Jul 23 - Aug 22

Ex­cel­lent. You're start­ing to en­joy your work again. Which is just as well be­cause you were se­ri­ously con­sid­er­ing throw­ing it all in and tak­ing up res­i­dence on a park bench. Okay, so toss that idea out the win­dow and set up some din­ner par­ties in­stead. You need to get back into cir­cu­la­tion. Big, toothy smiles all round. Ev­ery­one has missed your en­vi­able charm. Write some new jokes.

VIRGO Aug 23 - Sep 22

It’s all-change at the next sta­tion. Some­how, for no ap­par­ent rea­son, your dreams and am­bi­tions have been trans­formed. And since half your head is still in the old gear, con­fu­sion is the best you can hope for. Panic is an op­tion. Though pure de­light at the thought of a new ad­ven­ture is an in­ter­est­ing al­ter­na­tive. Give your­self per­mis­sion to ex­per­i­ment with the new you. It’ll be fun.

LIBRA Sep 23 - Oct 22

Just for a change, your love life is tak­ing a back seat. Which is odd, be­cause you’re look­ing fab­u­lous and the pos­si­bil­i­ties of love are plen­ti­ful enough to drive you crazy. No mat­ter. The ca­reer is hot, and the money abun­dant. Work with that for the time be­ing. And when you can take a mo­ment off from be­ing an Enor­mously Big Cheese, seize the day. Love is al­ways stand­ing by – even if you can’t see it just yet.

SCORPIO Oct 23 - Nov 21

Just as your life is tak­ing off, you pick this mo­ment to have an at­tack of jeal­ousy. In case you were con­fused, jeal­ousy is usu­ally re­served for times when ev­ery­one else seems to be hav­ing a bet­ter time than you. You do not start pan­ick­ing when the money is rolling in, hur­dles are be­ing swept away, and ev­ery­one loves you. As for that need for re­venge – well, the less said the bet­ter. Try trust.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 - Dec 21

The god­dess of ro­mance is send­ing you vibes – and a new love could quickly be­come your only love. The only snag is, your head’s not in the right place to be re­cep­tive. If you can, avoid im­pul­sive de­ci­sions. There are some an­cient prob­lems to re­solve first. Start with the one about you de­serv­ing love as much as any­one else. Get help if you’re con­fused. A new busi­ness propo­si­tion has prom­ise.

CAPRICORN Dec 22 - Jan 20

And now for some­thing com­pletely fab­u­lous ... staid old Capri­corns are be­ing shaken out of their con­ser­va­tive ruts and try­ing some­thing dif­fer­ent. For the first time in ages, the plan­ets are con­spir­ing to in­ject you with vi­brant new en­ergy and con­fi­dence. This is your mo­ment for: lis­ten­ing to your heart; em­ploy­ing peo­ple who wear nose-rings; wear­ing lime green. Try it first. Then judge. Start each day with an enor­mous grin.

AQUARIUS Jan 20 - Feb 18

Do not — un­der any cir­cum­stances — lend any money this week. Prefer­ably never, but cer­tainly not now. If you have money to share, give it freely and in­stantly for­get about it. The mo­ment you start with the IOU con­tracts, you’re in for a fight. Be­sides, you’re about to start mak­ing huge amounts. Best you work out your shar­ing poli­cies be­fore­hand. There’s al­ways some­one ask­ing.

PISCES Feb 19 - Mar 20

It may not seem that way, but the ca­reer is look­ing fab­u­lous — as long as you’ve cho­sen a pre­ferred di­rec­tion. Dump the projects drain­ing your en­ergy, and move on to the good stuff. A very large ar­row will fall out of the sky, di­rect­ing your next move — so keep watch. At the same time, you’ll dis­cover tal­ents you didn’t know you had. Watch that ten­dency to make prom­ises you can’t keep.

ARIES Mar 21 - April 19

If it’s not re­veal­ing its magic — busi­ness deals in par­tic­u­lar — it must be dumped. Hang­ing on till the last mo­ment in the hope of im­prove­ment is a strat­egy that costs you money, pa­tience and friends. For now, you’ll be us­ing ev­ery tal­ent just to get peo­ple to keep their prom­ises. Start by mak­ing sure you are keep­ing your own. Lower your ex­pec­ta­tions for a while, so you won’t be dis­ap­pointed. In your­self or them.
