Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

You will strongly desire making the home into a showpiece of art, beauty and opulence. New interests attract easily and you may begin or continue educational programmes that challenge and sharpen your analytical ability. Collecting data or news regarding your future employment will keep you on your toes. A legal matter can now be dealt with and cleared up; your ability to investigate matters in detail are favoured. Get your weekly schedule organised as early as possible and plan to spend part of your week promoting personal interests. Community activities or sporting interests will be stimulating. A windfall is indicated.

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

You must not underestimate the wisdom of older, influential people; they may show you a thing or two that helps you solve business or personal problems that you have been struggling with for weeks. This is a week to increase your income or improve your security. Travel is favourable and exciting new ventures will have you on cloud nine. Communication brings joy and good fortune — now is the time to invest in your future security and make it more secure. An interesting person may enter your life with the view of forming a long-lasting friendship with a difference. A matter of importance to do with your family security could have you running around in circles.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Activities through groups, organisations, and cultural or intellectual ideas will interest you. Your relationships with friends and social acquaintances will undergo a major long-term change for the better. You may look for new friends that fit in better to your routine. You will find pleasure and happiness in joining clubs or associations of some kind. Your eagerness to better yourself in your career or chosen field will be shown. You could find yourself accepting greater responsibility for your actions. A change of residence can now be made with little or no obstructions or delays. A matter of secrecy may be required of you for reasons of a personal nature.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Luck is with you in many ways; however, be wary about lending money to friends — it may cost you in the long run. News from afar will call for a celebration and an unexpected meeting with a stranger will be spectacular. Be on the lookout for new opportunities that may come your way. Business transactions are favoured, but read all contracts or agreements thoroughly before signing. The most negative thing you can do is doubt your ability to do what you want with your future, or believe that you are less qualified than others around you. Watch your easy come, easy go attitude. Your generosity may overwhelm family and friends. Be careful about your health.

Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)

You may also be attracted to a variety of new things and you’re ready to take the plunge into that world of the unknown. Transport changes may interest you, with buying, selling or trading in motor transport indicated. Further education scores top marks and financial windfalls are possible this week. You may receive an increase in wages or be granted a bank loan. Your imagination will be rich with ideas, but you may have difficulty finding a suitable field in which to apply them. Business income and assets will be boosted and your standing in life will show a remarkable high. Outdoor activities, travel, sport and cultural pursuits are favoured.

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)

Let others assist you if you feel inclined; their advice may be sound and profitable in the long run. Your immediate hopes, wishes, desires and things you have been longing for could become reality from this week on. This is an excellent time for getting to know others better or promoting yourself in community affairs. New high-flying personalities may enter your destiny and social contacts will make this an exciting week. Household chores, gardening and routine activities will have you beat. Try to get some rest, you’ll feel the strain if you don’t. Your attitude towards money, extravagance, profits and losses is now becoming much more positive.

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

You will now strive to rid yourself of debts. A dream concerning distant interests, favourable information or news is on the way to you. Your charming personal manner, socially outgoing, happy, optimistic outlook will win you many friends and acquaintances this week. Interviews are favoured and you may be offered a new job or a position of advancement. Conversations, negotiations, meetings, responding to letters and phone calls and communications of all kinds are important activities now. A significant discussion or exchange of information is likely. This is a good time to get the views of someone you respect.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Happiness and a desire to share your good fortune and joy with others are the themes this week. You are feeling generous and are inclined to give lavish gifts, or buy something lovely, costly or extravagant for yourself. A diet or budget is likely to go out the window right now. Your long-range goals or career aims come into focus, and opportunities await you. Gaining clarity or a stronger sense of purpose, which energises your efforts to get ahead or move toward what you really want, is starting to take root within you.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

Recognition or support from your superiors or others who are in a position to help you is likely now, especially if you take some initiative. Doors open and new opportunities for personal and professional growth present themselves. Partnerships or joining with others for mutual benefit is favoured. Your energy level is high and this is a good time for athletics, especially team sports. Someone is likely to offer you a very promising opportunity at this time, or you may have an offer for someone else that you think will be mutually beneficial. Your love life is a little vulnerable so be careful of others taking advantage of you...

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

A special offer seems like a ‘deal’ that can lead to tremendous growth and success, and yet you wonder if it is too good to be true. Because there are risks involved, it is impossible to know whether the offer will work out well and consequently you are likely to feel uncertain about what to do. In truth, there is definitely the potential for opening up new avenues for success and fulfilment, but there is also a tendency to overshoot the mark due to over-optimism and a willingness to gamble and speculate. Now is the time to start new projects or trends. Financial or business affairs are favoured at this time and you may meet a benefactor through friends, or in a social atmosphere. You are likely to get financial backing.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

You are inspired creatively, artistically, or spiritually at this time. Your imagination, intuition and psychic sensitivity are high now and you find yourself wanting to paint or listen to music, daydream or fantasise rather than concentrate on practical matters. You may be apprehensive about your security and a monetary or credit matter is not as bad as you first imagined; financial gains or a windfall is indicated. Watch for opportunities. A gift from out of the blue will surprise some or you may make contact with someone you never expected to see again.

Pisces (Feb 19- Mar 20)

Travel is likely to be connected with an unexpected work trip. You are going to be pleasantly surprised with the rewards that you are beginning to reap in relation to your job. Your career is heading off on a new and exciting tangent and opportunities await you. Luck is on your side this week, making it a good time to try and implement new schemes and ideas. Work to remove unpleasantness in your immediate surroundings; now is the time to beautify your home, your neighbourhood or some other part of your environment. Your children will surprise you with their ambitions and attitude towards their future education or career.
