Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)


News of an upcoming celebration may cause you to change your budget plans and go on a spending spree. A family issue — regarding finances and relationships — may cause concern. If your partner is a little negative or restless, you should try doing something new to enliven the relationship. A short trip could just be what you need, but stress is indicated in matters of a personal nature. Aside from speaking about an issue to your loved one, you should reserve a little alone time for yourself. Solitude may be the answer to your problem; it will give you a sense of your own capacity for self-love.



Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

 Your wisdom can work to your advantage when it comes to solving any problem. Watch for the sudden or unexpected, as you may be in for a surprise. Avoid extravagant spending, as your finances cannot able to withstand unnecessary expenditure. There will be a great deal of change in the atmosphere around you, especially with regards to career and your daily routine. An opportunity to improve your relationship with others is favourable; you will be adaptable and responsive to a person close to you. With a renewed interest in the material and speculative world, you may have contact with a rational, practical and organised person who will give you the assistance you need.

  Gemini (May 21 - June 20) 

 An activity may have to be carried out in secret or in seclusion, and you may avoid telling others what you intend doing. This is a week when you can find both pleasure and profit in taking up a role in public or community affairs. You can expect to make a new friendship, or perhaps join a new group that has a progressive goal. A short trip may bring a fascinating surprise and a lot of fun, especially with a compatible associate. If you are feeling lonely, invite a close friend to dinner. This person will be willing to accept you for who you are and could make you happy. This is a week to re-evaluate your relationship with someone close to you and make a promise.

  Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

 There will be focus on your career, along with the possibility of taking a short, work-related trip. If you are with new friends, you’re likely to turn the discussion into something heavy and serious, perhaps political. Something deep, mysterious, or confidential may need to be attended too and some restrictions can be expected with a family member. You have a realistic, no-nonsense attitude now and are rather critical, sceptical, or at least cautious about a new idea. Deep study and private reflection is favoured and time out for yourself would be a great idea. You may feel more reticent and uncommunicative than usual and not very social. You may walk a fine line between good company and the disapproval of others.

 Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)

You could find yourself working against the values of another, and generally going against the flow of things. You may also be perceived as just the person for a particular job, as your management and directional ability is in focus. Expect increased professional responsibility and recognition for a job well done. Frivolity holds no appeal for you now. Your personal finances may receive a hearty boost, or there may be an important connection between money and property throughout the week. You can also draw a lot of strength and satisfaction from your family, but if all is not well in this area, you will clearly see a difficulty or inadequacy showing.

 Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)

 You are more emotional and subjective than usual, and although it is rare, your “quick-to-blame” attitude may surface and create disapproval from others. This is a productive week for insurance, joint finances, or corporate money. A battle or conflict concerning a financial transaction should work to your advantage. If you have a strong desire to do something different yet constructive in your business or career, look at sales, or the hospitality industry. A pleasant, work-related surprise can be expected, and you will have the possibility of earning much more money. Higher education, publishing, law or business matters may interest you.

 Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

 The realisation or completion of a special project will depend entirely on your personal wealth, and it will be important for you to manage your finances accurately. A pleasant meeting or gathering will bring you in contact with an exciting new friendship that will assist you with future goals. A colleague may look to you for advice regarding past mistakes and how to correct them. This is a good week to speak up and clear the air of a grievance you have been holding on to for some time. Emotions, prejudices, or an unresolved issue from the past may reoccur in your interaction with someone and you may not be very objective. Avoid suppressed anger, intrigue or an uncontrolled subconscious desire.

 Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

 A hobby or sporting interest which you take part in may prove more exciting than you thought. You have caused most of your emotional problems lately, but this week is the time to stop complaining. It’s a good cycle to get away from it all, go to an art exhibition, a walk in the park, or to a relaxing social gathering. You simply need a break. Matters of the heart are on your mind now and you feel like playing matchmaker. Good fortune will attract to you at the racetrack or a sporting event. Study, literature or anything that broadens your mind and expands your conscious awareness is in focus. Balance your generosity.

 Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

A short trip will be full of enthusiasm and adventure; something that you did not expect considering will work out wonderfully. A new love interest may enter your life, and likely be exciting, free and totally unpredictable. Avoid making a permanent commitment, as this relationship is likely to be unstable to start with. A technical or scientific subject may interest you; this is an ideal time to study something different. You may have that feeling of impulsiveness which may upset a person close to you. Avoid any uncertainty and impatience when it comes to love and affection. The standard role of wage earner with all its frills does not appeal to you anymore. An important career matter will be finalised.

 Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

It’s an excellent week for applying for a personal loan, or receiving money from an investment or real estate matter. Your mind will be very clear, more alert and mentally sharp enough to be able to handle any domestic or business issue that will come along, or another project you are engaged in and a family or home activity can be carried out successfully. A visitor to your home or a lengthy telephone conversation will leave you little or no time to complete a few promised everyday jobs. There may be a need to compromise and cooperate in a relationship as the pressures around you will be forceful. You could spend time entertaining and making others feel great at your home, whilst you suffer in silence on the inside with personal matters.

 Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Freedom and exhilaration describe your feelings now and you should use this week to your advantage. Your energy level is ready to move mountains and arouse your inner idealism. You may be offered a new business proposal that shares some of your newfound interests, both personal and intellectual. Stress or disruption is indicated in a legal matter or agreement that you have made in the past. You should endeavour to rectify this to your advantage. Watch for the sudden or unexpected, as a surprise or two is in store. A new relationship may begin and it will be unusual in some way, compared to previous relationships and it may very well last.

 Pisces (Feb 19- Mar 20)

Emotional contact, or support between friends will be important to you, especially with those you have not seen for some time. Avoid displaying a jealous or over-possessive attitude around your partner. Your relationship will be very intense and you may consider a change of heart. You are in a self-indulgent mood for love and affection at all costs. Finalisation of a legal matter is possible, and you may sign a contract or agreement to your advantage. Taking a gamble will pay off, and you will be surprised with the results. You will be motivated to probe into the hidden and mysterious ventures of your family’s past or that of your partner’s. You are in a mood to just daydream and let your imagination run free.
