Your Stars

Sunday Times - - Last Word - By Linda Shaw


Sep 23 - Oct 22

Keep­ing the peace is not the same as al­low­ing your­self to be every­one’s door­mat. Since your per­sonal plan­ets are on the warpath, you’re un­der no obli­ga­tion to be­have your­self. Quite the re­verse. Just re­mem­ber to think be­fore you speak. Ei­ther way, the plan­ets are in­sane un­til mid-Novem­ber. Do your best to hold on to your power, and re­mind your­self how fab­u­lous you are.


Oct 23 - Nov 21

Since your garbage de­tec­tor is so finely tuned, you’re turn­ing all dra­mas into mini world wars. The truth is, no one’s telling the truth. Not even you. So re­la­tion­ships are mildly strained. The trick here is to mas­ter the art of self re­flec­tion. What are you afraid of?

Who are you tak­ing for granted?

Which as­pects of your life need more at­ten­tion? These are the ques­tions. Spend some time with your­self.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS Nov 22 - Dec 21

Enough with the com­pro­mise. You re­ally can have it all. But what does “it all” con­sti­tute? What do you need to make you happy? The fact is, your ef­forts are fi­nally pay­ing off. Do you sit down and rest on your lau­rels? Or are you spurred on to greater things? Yes, your love life could use some help. But the rest of your life is pro­gress­ing pre­cisely as planned.

CAPRICORN Dec 22 - Jan 20

For some rea­son, you’ve con­vinced your­self you can han­dle ev­ery­thing at once — by your­self. Why you would want to take on such a lu­di­crous task is any­one’s guess. But the point is, not even you can run the world sin­gle-handed. So take a step back. You don’t re­ally want to set the world on fire. You sim­ply want to start a flame in a few se­lected hearts – be­gin­ning with your own.


Jan 20 - Feb 18

What on earth makes you think you can ac­com­plish any­thing by charg­ing into the fray without the small­est idea what you’re do­ing there? So. Ei­ther make frus­tra­tion your friend, or pull back and make a plan. Your ca­reer — amaz­ingly — is pre­cisely where it needs to be. And as for your per­sonal life, the less you fo­cus on the dra­mas, the quicker you’ll find so­lu­tions. Re­mem­ber, you have the art of de­tach­ment.


Feb 19 - Mar 20

Just be­cause you hate the idea of net­work­ing doesn’t mean there aren’t any peo­ple who are will­ing to help you out. So call it what you like — but ac­cept the of­fers. What makes you think you’ve cor­nered the mar­ket on res­cu­ing lost causes? Some­times you get to be the cause — and they get to do the res­cu­ing. Just de­cide what you want — and vi­su­alise your­self get­ting it.


Mar 21 - April 19

You’re ex­hausted — and truly sick of fight­ing for what you want. You’re even sicker of every­one ex­pect­ing you to sort out their prob­lems for them. What rot! You love it. This is what you were born for — lead­ing, fight­ing, tak­ing charge. You’d die of bore­dom in a week if ev­ery­thing was easy. Be­sides, you have a whole bunch of fab­u­lous new ideas.


Apr 20 - May 20

There are wild temp­ta­tions out there. And you are be­ing bad. You’re get­ting in­volved with peo­ple who are oth­er­wise en­gaged — and won­der­ing why your re­la­tion­ships are be­ing turned on their heads. Find ways to amuse your­self without mess­ing up any­one else’s life — and you’ll have time for that new project that’s landed in your lap. You can re­think the grand plan in Novem­ber.


May 21 - June 20

Whoops! Every­one’s sud­denly telling you their se­crets — and it’s all you can do not to blab. Peo­ple be­lieve in you now, so take care not to lose their new-found trust. There’s wis­dom to be gained here. You might dis­cover, for ex­am­ple, that some­one is work­ing against you, ex­ploit­ing your gen­eros­ity. Don’t let that stop you. Just keep your bound­aries in place.


June 21 - Jul 22

Is every­one abus­ing your car­ing na­ture, leav­ing you with the bur­dens? Enough of that rub­bish. Sure, it’s great to be needed. But you need time for your­self be­fore you start shar­ing it with every­one else. Take a short break. There’ll be some mi­nor drama at work when you re­turn – so get your strength back in an­tic­i­pa­tion. Then de­cide how many of these prob­lems are yours to deal with.


Jul 23 - Aug 22

Just be­cause they think you’re bossy doesn’t mean you’re not right. And now they’re all start­ing to see how use­ful you can be — even stop­ping to ask for your ad­vice. En­joy it — but don’t take any of it too se­ri­ously. Just re­mind your­self of your own worth — and keep do­ing what you’re do­ing. There’s money out there — from a to­tally un­ex­pected source. Un­der­stand that all of­fers are gifts from the uni­verse.


Aug 23 - Sep 22

It’s okay. Just be­cause you’re feel­ing needy and in­se­cure doesn’t mean you are. This is sim­ply your emo­tions gone bananas. Be­sides, you’re spread­ing your­self too thinly — try­ing too hard to man­age ev­ery­thing on your own. The truth is, you’re mak­ing fan­tas­tic progress — even though the plan­ets are turn­ing your life up­side down. Just keep go­ing as you are.
