You’ve been through a rough time and it’s not over yet. Try view­ing this as a chance to re­make your life. Start with your val­ues. What is im­por­tant to you? What would you like to carry with you into your next life? Start hon­ing those skills and de­vel­op­ing new ones. Your ca­reer path is still be­ing fine-tuned — and your fi­nances along with it. And sure, you’ve never felt more alone or mis­un­der­stood. But that’s pre­cisely as it should be. Your fo­cus now is on in­de­pen­dent strength and wish ful­fil­ment. Who are you re­ally?

What do you re­ally want? Those questions can’t be an­swered by any­one but you. Next year is for re­la­tion­ships. This one is for you. Rel­ish the alone time you’ll be truly miss­ing by this time next year.

CANCER June 21 - Jul 22

It’s an emo­tional time. We’ve had the sol­stice, shift­ing the sea­sons along with your cen­tre of grav­ity. Now we’ve got a full moon heap­ing garbage on your re­la­tion­ships. Per­haps “garbage” is over­stat­ing it. The plan is to un­earth the good stuff, but that tends to mean wad­ing through the other stuff first. Then the pas­sion planet takes a left turn on Tues­day, leav­ing frus­tra­tion.

LEO Jul 23 - Aug 22

No one could ever ac­cuse you of be­ing bor­ing, But since melo­drama is your favourite thing, your best op­tion would be to stick on a false mous­tache and start danc­ing. If any­one com­plains, blame full-moon mad­ness. That way you won’t have to ex­plain your de­sire to toss your lover, storm out of your job, and cre­ate chaos. How­ever, if you have a tal­ent, now’s a chance to cap­i­talise.

VIRGO Aug 23 - Sep 22

As if you didn’t have enough de­mands on your time — fam­ily, friends and lovers are all clam­our­ing for at­ten­tion. Give them some. You know how lost you feel with­out them, even if they do drive you crazy. Hang on to your wal­let. Some­one’s try­ing to take it from you. Ei­ther that or a sud­den ex­pense could knock you side­ways. Not to worry. Dam­age con­trol is all that’s needed.

LIBRA Sep 23 - Oct 22

If you’ve got any­thing im­por­tant to say, do it now. Be­cause, for once, you won’t al­low your­self to be fobbed off by emo­tional black­mail, guilt trips or sob sto­ries. It’s truth time. And if you’re pre­pared to risk con­fronta­tion or even hav­ing some­one dis­like you, you’ll find your­self in a hap­pier place by the week­end. Watch the money though. The sig­nals are con­fus­ing.

SCORPIO Oct 23 - Nov 21

Dog­matic rant­ing isn’t re­ally you. So what’s go­ing on here? Are you join­ing in for the fun? Are you se­cretly in love with the leader of the cause? Or are you sim­ply look­ing for some­where to dump your frus­tra­tions? What­ever it is, there’s no point pur­su­ing some­thing that has noth­ing to do with you. Why not find some­thing use­ful to do with all that en­ergy. There’s pas­sion in your heart.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 - Dec 21

You know what a big mouth you have. And stomp­ing all over dif­fi­cult toes is never a good idea, es­pe­cially when charm could have done the job just as well. If the dam­age is al­ready done, try for roses all round. If nec­es­sary, fol­low up with a bit of grov­el­ling; even bla­tant beg­ging. The al­ter­na­tive is that you’ll have to deal with op­po­si­tion to your progress. Hum­ble pie tastes bet­ter.

CAPRICORN Dec 22 - Jan 20

Need­ing a ca­reer change? Con­vinced ev­ery­thing you do is worth­less? In­ter­est­ingly, these are pos­i­tive thoughts. This is the plan­ets’ way of telling you you’ve passed the lat­est tests and are ready for greater things. Use the time to sort out de­tails and pre­pare for some­thing that will ren­der you un­recog­nis­able even to your­self. Thurs­day’s full moon will pro­vide the per­fect op­por­tu­nity.

AQUARIUS Jan 20 - Feb 18

The bad news is you’ll be work­ing your butt off all week. The much bet­ter news is that the week is so full of mar­vel­lous new op­por­tu­ni­ties, you’ll hardly know whose call to re­turn first. One thing: get some rest. As it is, you’ll prob­a­bly be so ex­hausted you’ll lose track of what you’re say­ing — and will spend most of next week apol­o­gis­ing for that pe­cu­liar need to tell the ab­so­lute truth.

PISCES Feb 19 - Mar 20

Take a break, be­fore the stress fraz­zles your wiring. This is the week to read that book and gaze mind­lessly at old movies you pre­tend not to like. This is the week to like your­self just the way you are. And so you should. Your ca­reer is plod­ding along in its own sweet way. There’s money where it’s most needed. And as soon as you be­lieve you’re de­serv­ing enough, your wishes will be granted. Say thanks. And get some sleep.

ARIES Mar 21 - April 19

These bizarre new en­er­gies are lit­er­ally ex­plo­sive. Avoid po­ten­tial dan­ger this week, even stay­ing home at night if you can. Or get some­one else to drive you. Don’t fight with the neigh­bours ei­ther. They’re in the mood to fight back. Re­la­tion­ships will be on full alert. Tip­toe if you’d rather not sub­ject your­self to rant­ing abuse. Then, when you’ve had enough, take a bath.

TAURUS Apr 20 - May 20

Re­li­able as you usu­ally are, prom­ises won’t mean very much. So stick to short-term goals. This is one of those times you’ll look back on — and won­der what the heck re­ally hap­pened. There’s a shift here — a trans­for­ma­tion to a new you in an en­tirely new life. Sub­tle, yes, but more pow­er­ful than any­thing you’ve ever known. Wait and see. Give your­self per­mis­sion to play around a lit­tle.

GEMINI May 21 - June 20

Re­la­tion­ships are tot­ter­ing as your charm and tact tem­po­rar­ily desert you. Not that it matters. You’ll have the chances you need to fix your mis­takes later. For now, con­cen­trate on an un­nerv­ing mo­bile ca­reer. Peo­ple and plan­ets are there to help — but only if you de­liver on prom­ises. Agree to ev­ery­thing — but ask for time to think. And lay off the cof­fee. San­ity is a pre­cious — and rare — com­mod­ity now.
