Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

The Ram is a martial sign associated with courage, hope and enthusiasm — excellent virtues in a world dominated by competitive enterprise. However, impatience and ardour can become recklessness if there’s no self-control. If you’re typical of your sign, you must be forever rushing headlong into activities which you’re incapable of carrying to a successful outcome. To get ahead and stay there, learn to accept advice and delegate tasks — thereby allowing your flair for initiative and leadership to flower.

Taurus (Apr 20- May 20)

An alignment between your ruler Venus and Uranus should serve to remind you that there’s life to be lived beyond the world of work. It’s important you make time this week for people whose demands on you can’t be ignored for much longer. A lot of good can come out of turning your attention to sharing and shoring up relationships. Leave the mundane practicalities of making a living on tick-over and make an unexpected gesture of affection. The response promises to be immediate and totally surprising.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

If you feel daunted that a certain venture is not taking off as quickly as you hoped, don’t despair. The apparent lack of luck or magic is only a mercurial phenomenon. Even so, if you were to concentrate on the profits and pleasures rather than the pitfalls, you’ll become a lot more optimistic. It’s just not like a Gemini to be fraught with dark and cloudy doubts when you’re normally looking for silver linings. So chin up and cheer up. A little pretended good humour will soon lead to real reasons to smile.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)

You’re unusually pushy this week because your ruler is running on over-drive, courtesy of lunar conjunctions with all the major planets bar Jupiter. Unless you’re prepared to back down and stop being so full of yourself, sparks are bound to fly. Make it your main task to produce evidence to support your case and be prepared to make some concessions to other points of view. If you want others to come on side, you need to moderate your tone and let others believe the clues they find are self-discovered.

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)

Avoid an all-or-nothing approach to negotiations on the business or speculative front. This is not a week when you can afford to take risks. You could find the stakes are raised so much that the only options are to go for broke or fold your hand and walk away. It’s not like you to panic, but even experienced card-sharps like yourself have off days. Make a token gesture of your interest and wait to see how things shape up before you go risking the shirt on your back. Remember you’re playing ‘Bluff’ not ‘Brag’.
