Rising sign: Scorpio
You’re so creative, but your perfectionism doesn’t allow you to appreciate anything you do. You have a good-fortune cycle starting in August, so you don’t have much time to let yourself be a winner. You also don’t trust anyone enough to let them help you. You may need to release the reins long enough to let someone into your space. Your success is being sabotaged by your need to control. Since success is what you most want, you need to come up with a new plan. Start by trusting yourself to bring whatever you need into your life. Then you’ll have no choice but to trust anything that arrives. Love is even harder since it requires even more trust. It will probably take another year for you to get to a space where you’re ready to love – and be loved.
June 21 - Jul 22
Career shifts? Fabulous financial news? A transformation of your personal look? It’s all happening as the planets dash about changing your life. No point resisting. There’s a new you emerging and no one has any idea what to expect. Not even you. Imagine yourself opening the doors to a new life — and standing aside so it doesn’t have to fight its way past your madness.
Jul 23 - Aug 22
The planets have lost the plot and you’re wondering how to hang on to yours. Don’t waste your time. The storyline has been scrapped and you get to rewrite it. Start with family and home. You could be moving, renovating or just fixing the parts that are falling down. However it works, you’re rethinking long-term plans. If you’re leaving the country, expect a few delays. If you’re moving down the road, the trip will bring an occasional hiccup. Take your time.
Aug 23 - Sep 22
Feeling stuck? Not surprising. Think of this as the calm before the hurricane — which suits you fine as you prefer a slower pace. Use this time to sort out the domestic issues you’ve been neglecting. Finances also need help. Use this week to stoke your creative fires and rethink your dreams. You’ve been taking yourself too seriously.
Sep 23 - Oct 22
You’re sensitive enough to have tuned in to the forces of change, particularly in your love life. So, how are you planning to respond? For a start, you’ll need more relaxed moments and less reaction to unnecessary stress. Then, attention to budgets and investments now will save you anxiety later. Thirdly, it’s time to review the way you relate to others. Those insane expectations must go.
Oct 23 - Nov 21
Unexpected battles with the lovers can escalate, despite all your efforts to remove yourself from the flames. However, it’s no big deal. Love will always win in the end. So say what you mean – as honestly as you can – and then go ahead and plan something to celebrate your romance. Buy a punching bag to beat out your inevitable frustrations. Money’s going fairly well; now trust yourself to plan a few financial moves.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 - Dec 21
Relationships are reverting to type. If you want change, now’s your chance. The alternative is resigning yourself to “that’s just the way it is”. The difference between happiness and resignation is courage. And discipline. Neither word fills your heart with glee. But look again: there’s power in those veins and adventure in that soul.
CAPRICORN Dec 22 - Jan 20
This is a week of uncovered secrets, altered reputations, and a call to redo something you thought was finished. No point getting into an ego flip. Might as well calmly do what needs to be done and spend time rebuilding your self-esteem. There’s a reason for all this. Get help if you can’t figure it out. Spend time alone. Ask yourself the important questions.
Jan 20 - Feb 18
Can you remember when was the last time that you slept throughout the night? Or went to the movies? Or that you made yourself a steaming mug of hot chocolate? Sure, the demands of your career are intense and you’re being asked to take charge of areas that you’re not sure of. But your personal needs are important too. It’s time that you asked for help. Besides all that, your love planet is also wanting you to play.
Feb 19 - Mar 20
If you’re ready for new love in your life, send signals. Just make sure you know what you want and that your message is clear. You’re in for a wonderful, potentially long-term, experience. But only if that’s what you really need. Sometimes an exciting, short-term sparkle is all that’s required to clear the cobwebs.
Mar 21 - April 19
It’s the health that needs attention for a change. So eat right, exercise, don’t take on more than you can handle, don’t make promises you can’t keep. Not only that, you’ve become so defensive, you’ve moved into frozen mode and no one can get near you. A bad idea. The thing is, if you say you want to be alone too often, people will start to believe you. And you know you’d hate that.
Apr 20 - May 20
It’s party time and the planets have given you a few days off. So don’t fret if all the work dries up and you find yourself twiddling your thumbs. But do keep a careful eye on the money. Also, don’t make any deals with any of your friends for at least two months — or there promises to be a fight. If you need entertainment, open the door. There are loads of people out there who are just longing to keep you amused.
May 21 - June 20
Home life might be a bit iffy, but the gods of employment, learning, new offers and an eventual money plan are saving their magic for you. Just as well. Money’s been playing games and will take at least another month to come right. Get your portfolio renewed. And thank the cosmos in advance — just to make sure.
