Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

A financial gain may strike you by surprise, or you may have a stroke of luck with investments. Career changes are in store; those who are unemployed may find themselves in a lucky position with work. Legal matters may require investigation before proceeding as you may find flaws. You will be alert and on your toes now and the pace is likely to be fast, even hectic. You are restless and eager to meet others halfway, to converse, exchange information, and make connections. Nervousness or irritability due to aggravations and the stress of increased demands at work is possible. You know just what you want right now and woe to anyone that gets in your way.


 Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

You are much more likely to become domineering, pushy, or inconsiderate of others at this time so it might be better to do what you need to do by yourself, rather than with others right now. Your desire for love and affection, as well as beauty and pleasure, is strong now and you act on feelings and creative impulses more readily than usual. If you are not happy with some aspect of your personal life, these issues arise at this time and there may be tension in a close relationship. A money matter will be solved to your satisfaction. Meetings with employers bring good news and you may have an opportunity to advance your position. Meetings with bankers could be to your advantage.


Gemini (May 21 - June 20) 

You are objective and can make some clear decisions about where you are headed or what the next step is to achieve your personal goals. Your judgment is sound this week and you can achieve anything you want, if you put your mind to it. This is an excellent time to seek out your superiors or those in a position to help you advance your career. There is much activity around you now; you will find yourself moving rapidly from one thing to another and a hectic, somewhat stressful pace is likely. You will be alert and on your toes now. An important conversation may have you intrigued.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

You are restless and eager to meet others halfway, to converse, exchange information and make connections. A minor but rather tense confrontation is likely and you will overcome it. A boost to your finances is possible. Relaxation, enjoyment, and pleasure are also emphasised now. This is not a time to push yourself or be involved in activities that require intense competition or a great expenditure of energy. Cooperative, harmonious personal and professional relationships are more important to you at this time. You feel like socialising and being friendly. This is a good time for relaxing recreation, a time to refresh and rejuvenate yourself and do the things you enjoy doing most.


Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)

Good humour and optimism prevail now and you are able to get a larger perspective on your life. At this time, you are inclined to invest your time and money into making your environment more beautiful and comfortable. You may also wish to enhance your personal appearance in some way. Social gatherings are very positive for you now. Expect a few happy surprises as good fortune comes your way. You are in the mood to relax and enjoy harmonious surroundings. Your family and friends are a source of particular pleasure and satisfaction, and you may wish to treat them or pamper them in some way. Friends may offer you an invitation to an extravaganza. Enjoy.


 Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)

Appreciation for your home and a desire to make it more beautiful or comfortable is strong now. Family and friends will be of assistance if you need them; in fact, they will go out of their way to help you. This is also a good time to approach someone who is in a position to benefit you spiritually, intellectually or materially. Agreements and cooperation can be achieved easily with most people you meet. Your imagination is very active and you can not only dream up creative ideas, but put them into action too. A wedding invitation may be on the way and a new job offer may make your week. Finances are favoured.


 Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

It will be difficult to stay still this week, with so many activities to choose from. In all your relationships, whether romantic or not, you feel quite warm and affectionate now. You are less competitive and more interested in pleasing others. You are also more aware of beauty and may want to rearrange your décor or buy something to beautify your surroundings. You may feel compelled to do something creative to express this craving for beauty. Your imagination is vivid during this time and you enjoy fairy tales, mythology, spiritual, religious and metaphysical topics. Parties, social gatherings and fun times may blow a hole in your wallet. Watch health and overeating.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Travel and recreational activities may bring you in contact with some fabulous people. Friendship and cooperative endeavours flourish now. You achieve a harmonious balance of giving and receiving, of talking and listening, and any social or joint activity will benefit. Do not undersell yourself or your talents. This is a time for being with people and, especially, for giving something of yourself to others. Physical thrills and excitement have a strong appeal for you now and you want to do something new and out of the ordinary. You have a lot of energy and quick reflexes. Some vigorous exercise may be good for you now.


Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

This is a week you want to be seen and noticed. You may receive appreciation and a positive response, and possibly an opportunity or personal contact with an important person which will be quite beneficial. Money and romance work well together and you may be thrilled with a major change of direction. Go out and enjoy yourself; have fun and reach for the sky. This is a good time for you to take it easy. Good humour and optimism prevail now, and you will be able to see the big picture more clearly. This is also a good time to approach someone who is in a position to benefit you spiritually, intellectually, or materially. Watch any inclination to extravagance.


 Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

You may take an interest in theatre, photography, art or writing. Your ambitions for making money are countered by free spending this week. Acting on the spur of the moment can cause you financial embarrassment if you’re not careful; however, you will recover quickly. Support from close friends, family and the women in your life gives you confidence now. This is a good time to mend fences and ameliorate problems on the domestic front. This is a time of strong emotions, when you will depend on your beliefs and opinions to get your through. You may seek out relationships and friends who will stimulate you emotionally and intellectually. Avoid the tendency to leap to conclusions, as your thinking may not be very objective right now.


Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Avoid being too independent with everyone you meet; you could identify too strongly with your personal interests and attitudes, which may colour your perception of the world. Don’t make decisions concerning matters that will affect you long after the present, because your current subjective orientation will change and what is appropriate now will be inappropriate in the future. Career rockets ahead. This is a busy time for you. You may receive an invitation to a concert, party, wedding or social event. Buy something smart and attractive to wear because someone up-market could attract to you. A business financial matter appears to be resolved amicably.


 Pisces (Feb 19- Mar 20)

An excellent week to begin a new venture — you are really on top of things and have the world at your feet. You should put your mind and higher intelligence to work. Study the field of action about yourself, seeking where you can get a better job position. An excellent time to make plans for your future. Avoid exhausting your energies or using your authority unwisely. A classic fashion and glamour week is in store and this is a powerful cycle, with emotional changes up ahead. Your thoughts turn to love and this is a favourable time to bring out any concerns you have in your personal relationships as these can become tempestuous, especially if your partner is not as responsive as you would like.
