CELESTE SHARP Feb 23 1979, Pretoria, 07h15 Sun sign: Pisces Moon sign: Capricorn Rising Sign: Pisces
It’s only because you’re so extraordinary that the universe expects so much from you. And though that may not feel like much of a consolation prize, you might think about rearranging your future plans accordingly. It’s true — your life is largely about personal sacrifice for the greater good. But that’s no reason why you shouldn’t have a good time while you’re at it. You don’t need to take on any more than you can handle. And it’s really important that you save at least some of your time for your own needs. Once you recognise that you are just as important a part of the human race as anyone else you’ll start to give yourself a break. Either way, the next few years are about discovering – and exploring – your real powers.

LIBRA Sep 23 - Oct 22
The great thing about this week is that nothing much is happening before Friday. Until then, you’re sensitive, intuitive, wonderfully communicative and generally having a great time. Think of this as an opportunity to catch your breath and make some new plans. Even the money markets are taking a short break. Friday, not so much. That’s when your personal planet takes a six-week break. No need to fret.
SCORPIO Oct 23 - Nov 21
Convinced you’re one of the more impressive superheroes? Gazing into the mirror and loving what you see? Excellent. Wallow in your own fabulousness for a while. All the really great planets are in your sign — and doing as they’re told. And you, for once, are being completely honest without any need for that brutal cruelty you can sometimes slip into.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 - Dec 21
For the first time in ages, you can completely trust your instincts. They’re on your side — offering fun and adventure, without that inevitable need for catastrophe on the way down. How about making some financial moves? Just try not to annoy anyone important this week, with that big mouth. A fascinating new journey has already been diarised. Be calm until the details are revealed.
CAPRICORN Dec 22 - Jan 20
Have you been arguing with everyone who cares about you? And is there any reason for that, aside from fear and basic insecurity? Yes, you were born to be a leader. But how that plays out depends very much on your definition of control. Try working with your own natural talents — and weird habits. The more you like yourself — and whatever you have to offer — the more others will be keen to follow in your wake.
AQUARIUS Jan 20 - Feb 18
Just because you’re rushing about like a dervish doesn’t mean your basic needs should be neglected. Not even you can cope without regular food and the occasional shower. Besides, you’ll probably need help soon, so start looking for suitable candidates. When you need a break, take another look at the love life. Ask yourself whether you’re happy with your choices.
PISCES Feb 19 - Mar 20
You know, being “nice” is not all it’s cracked up to be. Sometimes you’ll need to toughen up just to get the job done. Either way, the planets are messing with your head now, so you’re not completely sure of your choices. No matter. Until further notice tell everyone to back off and leave you alone. Then listen closely to the whispers until something starts to make sense.
ARIES Mar 21 - April 19
Have you been making noisy demands and generally driving everyone bananas? Take a cold shower and calm down. You’re being driven by really powerful energies now. So before you cause any real trouble, take note: the idea is to lead with charisma, sensitivity and planned decisions. You are not required to set fire to the opposition on your way out. Remember — some people want you home in one piece.
TAURUS Apr 20 - May 20
You’re not completely over the hump yet – but you’re managing the weirdness much better than expected. But just to make sure you stay completely sane, how about getting a therapist? Or a life coach? These coping skills don’t always arrive on cue — and sometimes even a bull as tough as you needs a little help. Remember, there are creative alternatives.
GEMINI May 21 - June 20
Relationships, suddenly, are on full alert. You’ve done your very best to annoy everyone you know — and now your chickens are coming home to roost. So if you’re ready to play nice, tiptoe gently around everyone who has stuck around. It’s not always about being right. For now, it’s about a willingness to compromise. Not every battle is worth losing a friendship for.
CANCER June 21 - Jul 22
Write down your dreams — and any sudden flashes of inspiration. They don’t come back, you know. The planets will be talking specifically to you for a while, so make the most of any new information coming your way — no matter how peculiar the source. And be ready to open up to a completely different you. Who knows? You might even prefer this version of yourself to the last one. And wouldn’t that be fun?
LEO Jul 23 - Aug 22
Okay, so your pounding little heart is broken. Mourn if you must. Write sad poetry and read it out to the clouds. But don’t kick any actual people out just yet. Remind yourself that your rules for romantic behaviour aren’t necessarily the same as theirs — and they may be totally unaware that you’re upset. Either way, wait until mid-November before shouting the odds.
VIRGO Aug 23 - Sep 22
What a fabulous surprise! All those friends you’ve worked so hard to cultivate are gathering round to help you out. There’s support, encouragement, and a row of open doors. Take your pick. Just keep an eye on your diary, though. It has a tendency to overflow at this time of year, leaving you with frazzled nerves and a very dated hairdo. So budget your time.
