Par­ents, in- laws or neigh­bours may cause dis­rup­tions. Some stress is in­di­cated in per­sonal re­la­tion­ships — a lit­tle soli­tude and self- love may be the an­swer to your prob­lems. Your wis­dom will be help­ful when it comes to solv­ing im­por­tant per­sonal is­sues re­lated to money and in­vest­ments.

Sur­prises are in store. Op­por­tu­ni­ties to achieve suc­cess in busi­ness or do­mes­tic goals and im­prove re­la­tion­ships with oth­ers are favoured. You are more adapt­able and re­spon­sive to peo­ple and sit­u­a­tions. Some ac­tiv­i­ties may have to be car­ried out in se­cret or in seclu­sion. New beginnings are on the hori­zon and suc­cess is guar­an­teed.

Your at­ti­tude to life is rapidly chang­ing, and you will be on top of your perch as you soak up the lime­light. Some­one may of­fer you a great chance to bet­ter your­self and you should con­sider your op­tions. A week to win over friends and in­flu­ence oth­ers — pro­vided you don’t try to beat them down with your opinions and ideas. An ex­cit­ing new de­vel­op­ment is on the cards; some­one im­por­tant will as­sist you with some­thing close to your heart. Old friend­ships may be re­vived. Your fi­nan­cial po­si­tion is look­ing bright, be care­ful not to spend unnecessarily. A hobby or a sport­ing/ artis­tic ac­tiv­ity may ap­peal to you.

Tack­ling im­por­tant mat­ters will be easy. Busi­ness travel may bring some in­ter­est­ing re­sults, or you could de­cide to plan a hol­i­day with the fam­ily to some­where ex­otic. Money mat­ters are favoured: gains are in­di­cated via loans, part­ner­ships or busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties. Your ac­tions are in­ten­si­fied and you feel the pres­sure more strongly than usual. Dis­cus­sions and con­ver­sa­tions are favoured; you meet new peo­ple from dif­fer­ent back­grounds. Rel­a­tives and neigh­bours may spring a sur­prise; you may hear news that has your heart thump­ing.

Home and real es­tate im­prove­ments can now be ne­go­ti­ated to your ad­van­tage. Be ex­tra care­ful where your emo­tional at­ti­tudes are con­cerned: poor judg­ment may lead you to take wrong de­ci­sions. Ca­reer mat­ters may re­quire com­pro­mise — your head­strong nature may lead to con­flicts. If your part­ner’s get­ting bored with rou­tine, do some­thing con­struc­tive about it. Avoid overeat­ing — gain­ing weight may be a prob­lem. A good movie or sport­ing in­ter­est may draw your at­ten­tion; you are in the mood to do some­thing dif­fer­ent to al­le­vi­ate bore­dom. Com­pro­mise, pa­tience and mod­er­a­tion should be ad­hered to.


You could be at­tracted to an ex­cit­ing new idea, and have an over­whelm­ing de­sire to help oth­ers. You re­quire more un­der­stand­ing in your per­sonal re­la­tion­ship. Some­one from your past may ask you for an emo­tional favour; han­dle the mat­ter very care­fully as your part­ner may get of­fended. Elim­i­nate all doubts and un­cer­tain­ties — both from other peo­ple’s minds and from your own. Keep­ing se­crets will only un­der­mine oth­ers’ con­fi­dence in you. Banks play an im­por­tant role — or you may find a new way of han­dling your fi­nances. If a friend or neigh­bour asks for your as­sis­tance, be­ware of prob­lems ahead.


You may spend much of your spare time in seclu­sion do­ing your own thing. Some scat­tered dis­rup­tions may oc­cur; avoid emo­tion­ally tense sit­u­a­tions. This is a good pe­riod for ac­tiv­i­ties that in­volve re­search, study or pho­tog­ra­phy. Care should be taken with money mat­ters as you may over­spend un­know­ingly.


While shop­ping, buy­ing, sell­ing or at auc­tions, great bar­gains can be found. Keep abreast of cur­rent af­fairs to stay ahead of your com­pe­ti­tion. You may be­come pre­oc­cu­pied with your health for no ap­par­ent rea­son. A fam­ily mem­ber may need your as­sis­tance, or you may be asked to take charge of a del­i­cate sit­u­a­tion.
