Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Set your priorities in order and get ahead with any schedule that needs your attention. You are overloading yourself with promises and things to do for others. Keep a low profile and rid yourself of your existing workload, before you attempt the impossible. This is not a week to squander resources; you need discipline with all money matters. A relaxed partner, who makes you feel at home wherever you are, is important to you now. The better you get to know your partner, the more at home you will feel. Don’t allow an ego to dominate your love life; otherwise, you will be left with the emotional laundry. Good fortune smiles upon you this week and something you really long for may come your way.

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

A super social week can be expected: travel, parties, outings, new faces and places will excite you. Happy news may reach you concerning loved ones and a celebration may be in store too. A new job may be offered to you, and employment opportunities may have you making tentative plans that include travel. Finances are looking promising and gains may come your way. Personal relationships may require a touch of balance and give and take this week. Cultivate self-confidence and push ahead with those chosen goals; this is an excellent week for putting things together. Home and family ties may encounter a few adjustments, or you may change your style of living. A lucky break is on the way and you may be surprised with what you achieve. Push ahead with group goals.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Travel arrangements, buying and selling, and exchanging or ordering goods is favoured as you may strike a bargain. Money can burn a hole in your pocket if care is not taken, so think before you make any purchases. Family reunions or get-togethers with friends will boost your spirits this week and a few happy surprises are indicated. Your idealism will be aroused in a personal way this week and it is your recognition of what you want your life to be in the week ahead that will drive you forward. Frustration is something you have some control over now but impatience is a different matter altogether. Don’t make a fool of yourself by being greedy — think of your partner, and if you are really satisfying the needs of that person... or just yourself. Watch your diet and health — they need attention.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

You may be in for a big “win” or a major change in your finances and security could take a bounce forward around this time. Real estate, investments and trading will help change your present financial situation or you may make your life more secure by making some major changes. Go for everything that offers change — what a week this could turn out to be for you. This is a good time to promote your courtship and find out what exactly is expected of you in this relationship. If you feel like taking a little more time before making any solid commitments, do so. After all, your partner does love you and you will have the final say. A new plan or interest around now will be successful. At work, it’s a chatty, breezy sort of week when you’ll really enjoy dealing with the general public.

Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)

At home, you may have nice times with the family, but ideally you’ll be out and about following your own interests. People you’ve known a long time — perhaps all you life — aren’t nearly as interesting as strangers you pick up or new people you meet at a party. Interviews, new contracts, or a chance to better yourself are all in the offing now. You may also find yourself getting away from it all and escaping to places unknown, or keeping a low profile away from the maddening crowds. A secret project proves successful. You may prefer to be too verbal about your emotional needs and upset your partner by being too forthright or demanding. Love is very important to you now in every way.

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)

This week may greet you with many personal changes, career offers or a promotion. Varying conditions make this week a positive one: buying at the right price may have you laughing all the way to the bank. This is a favourable time for financial planning and for thinking of ways to increase your business efficiency and productivity. Short trips for business reasons will prove profitable for some, but watch your personal expenditure on entertainment. Family matters bring a few surprises and you may be asked to mediate a situation before it comes to the boil. Keep up your good looks and don’t let others talk you out of ways to improve your image. You may receive some encouragement from close friends.

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

You appear to show a more positive side of your personality now and others will attract to you like a magnet. Say yes to all invitations as nothing is going to stop you from getting your deep feelings across to others. Luck is with you this week and many new opportunities may come your way. You may find yourself in the spotlight over something you have achieved in the past. Entertainment and recreation will be exciting with lots of new developments. Doing things too quickly and extravagantly will make this an expensive week if you are not careful. Avoid impatience otherwise you may become less efficient and foolish mistakes could occur. Some people may not let you have your own way, so don’t take no for an answer.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Think about those personal goals you hope to reach and remember that achieving them should be your most important priority. An unusual situation may arise on the work scene and you should exercise a little caution before making a commitment or saying yes to a proposal. You may also receive favourable news about employment opportunities, contracts, or a past agreement. Spell out what you want and need — that way, you will have lesser to worry about in the future. You are driven more by instinct than by reason now and you are gripped by an almost fanatical and compulsive need to make fundamental changes in your life. Your compulsive urges take many forms, but a particularly strong one is the need to rid yourself of limitations, restrictions, and obstacles.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

You will be excited and enthusiastic about your future and this is the time when you are motivated to move mountains. Your endurance and resoluteness of purpose are never greater than they are now. You can prepare for this time period by eliminating as many minor responsibilities and distractions as possible. Friendships and love relationships are favoured as you are openly affectionate, warm, and also quite responsive to loving gestures from others. It’s not enough for you to simply feel loving toward another at this time. You really want to express it. An opportunity for a new romance or friendship is likely to surface now and work out quite nicely for you. Activities involving your brothers, sisters, neighbours or friends could also surprise you.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

Someone from your past could arrive quite unexpectedly and what a surprise that could be. You are very bold and adventurous right now and you cannot tolerate delays, restrictions, or any form of authority that prevents you from behaving exactly as you please. Your drive for personal freedom and insistence on your rights is pressing, and a confrontation in which you have to stand up for yourself is likely. Rashness, sudden acts of resentment or intensity could show in your personality and a tendency to try to do too much too fast are tendencies you may need to carefully monitor at this time. Financial prosperity comes in unusual ways — watch for the sudden or unexpected. You could not pick a better week for buying or selling, if you wanted to. Business opportunities will flourish.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

If you are careful and do your homework, cashing in on an investment opportunity may make you a lot of money this week. Opportunities to expand your professional reputation and standing in the community will present themselves as well and this could prove to be a mixed blessing. Prior commitments may interfere and prevent you from taking advantage of what is presented to you or you may be forced to choose a direction with only very little notice. This week is full of chances — it is an either/or situation in some respects. There may also be some minor legal problems or trouble with bureaucrats and officials. Relationships with the opposite sex are intensified now and you may experience strong feelings of attraction and love. If you are unhappy in your emotional life, forget your troubles, because happiness soon follows.

Pisces (Feb 19- Mar 20)

Stand by for a busy week ahead — and try not to bite off more than you can practically chew. There is much activity as you move rapidly from one thing to another — and a hectic, somewhat stressful, pace is likely. Many errands, phone calls, letters which require a response, and other “busywork” are on your agenda right now. A minor but rather tense confrontation is likely and your emotions are at an all-time high, so look out. You are not very congenial and cooperative right now and are more interested in the similarities — than in the differences — between yourself and others. This is a good time to let people know that you care about them, however; you could try sending your loved ones and friends a card, write them a note of appreciation or even a love letter! You may also want to buy yourself something beautiful to make you happy.
