Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

You may be surprised at how cooperative and helpful others are now. Your relationships are better than usual and your social calendar is likely to be full. Determine your priorities for this period and push them through with vigour and decisive action. You are intellectually sharp and able to talk yourself into and out of just about anything. A little tact can go a long way; remember this when anything offends your tastes or sensibilities. Job interviews score a goal. A friend or person in authority may offer help or present an opportunity that will benefit you. New avenues present possible financial gains.


  Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

This is a good time to get in touch with friends. You may wish to avoid heavy discussions or tending to dry, practical matters. If you are not inclined to involve yourself in academic work or daily routines, take up a hobby or something artistic. Relationships with siblings and neighbours can change now, if you are not careful; events will take you by surprise, so be prepared for the sudden or unexpected. New developments are likely in many areas of your life, and things may happen quicker than you would imagine. It’s an excellent time for discussing ideas with like-minded people who share similar goals as yourself. Romance is a highlight this week.


Gemini (May 21 - June 20) 

Inputs from others will be valuable, so listen to what they have to say. On some subjects, however, it may be best to work alone rather than coordinate your efforts with others. Exercise discretion. You are impatient and tend to behave in an impulsive, irritable way, which makes you more prone to accidents. This will be a busy week for communication; go for every opportunity that comes your way. An important week for all money matters: funds go out as quickly as they come, so strict attention should be given to all financial affairs. You may be involved in insurance, investments, and profits and losses. Legal matters are favoured.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Expect a busy week ahead. But a rash decision or a word out of place could lead to heated arguments. Your emotional relations with others need care and attention; you may find yourself quite temperamental at this time. Your job may bore you, so look for alternative employment or make changes to your present career to make things more challenging or interesting. A person who can teach you how to manage your assets more effectively may enter your life. In all transactions and negotiations with others, you have a pronounced tendency to overlook details and assume that everything will work out. Leisure activities may take up too much of your time; be disciplined in your daily routine.


Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)

Your thinking takes on a somewhat sombre and serious tone. You may need to make tough or unpopular decisions, and communication with others may be more difficult than usual. Family requires strict attention. Someone on the work scene will surprise you with a change of attitude about themselves and their appearance. Take care to behave with the utmost propriety, especially if you wish others to do you favours. Legal matters, contracts and partnership matters will require diplomacy; avoid any confrontation with those in authority, otherwise trouble could brew. Romance is in for a massive change for the better. Travel is likely, so enjoy it.


 Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)

You are noticeably sensitive and impressionable and may be inclined to try and escape from the humdrum of reality. Indulgent tendencies can surface now, as can misconceptions and a risk of self-deception. A social event brings you in contact with amazing people who may assist you with a problem or a new perspective. Studying for examinations may take up your time and success is indicated. You may have to deal with feelings of doubt and inadequacy about your job or personal security. You may find it easy to overdo things or work at cross-purposes with yourself. A social invitation brings you joy.


 Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

There is a sense of testing your limits. You should strive to learn everything you can from past experiences, because the knowledge you gain will be extremely useful to you. A busy week filled with group activities or movements aimed at transforming society, though not in a revolutionary way, may keep you on your toes. Matters to do with holidays, air travel, dinner parties, functions or weddings will be favourable and enjoyable, but watch yourself in the money department. You may find a kindred spirit in someone born under your own birth sign — there are similarities in the way you think, feel and love. A happy week for love and emotions.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

A somewhat dreamy and romantic outlook permeates your thinking. You can be mentally lax and a tad careless, but there is scope for inspired and imaginative thinking. Music, poetry, film and artistic creativity flourish this week, but a lack of drive or self-motivation is possible now. You may be inclined to adopt a carefree attitude and treat yourself to little indulgences. An excellent week for getting to the bottom of something important that is troubling you. Tackle exacting jobs now; your thoroughness will ensure they get done in the first attempt. A busy period for service roles; you may be given greater responsibility.


 Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

You will make many changes and change circumstances that you have been unhappy with for some time. Pushing yourself to the limit will bring great benefits. Others will sit up and take note when they see you handle situations. You will have an advantage in most negotiations, if you remember to hold something back in reserve. Release information on a need-to-know basis when dealing with others. Business and economic moves are favoured, as your judgement is sound and money sufficient to enhance your lifestyle. It’s a favourable time for management and organisation of real estate and long-term investments, as well as financial planning, business, publishing and travel.


Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

Improvements can be expected in usual ways, particularly in your job. You may decide to take a different direction in life, and you couldn’t have picked a better time. You may find yourself in a world of fantasy and romance or be particularly inspiring to your partner. You could also find yourself at odds with others regarding matters of convention. Avoid going against tradition and being too independent for group approval, particularly in matters to do with protocol. You could get carried away and make mistakes you may regret. A major change may occur with your possessions and resources held jointly with others, such as your spouse’s finances or corporate assets. A happy surprise may come your way unexpectedly.


Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

A serious discussion can be expected concerning one of your children, a close friend or workmate. Avoid jumping to conclusions. A great deal of activity around your place of work or home will bring increased responsibility and success. Be careful of biting off more than you can chew; sudden changes in your social situation could trigger a compulsive reaction that is ungracious and unwise. An unexpected imposition or emotional conflict in your environment could be upsetting. An old friend or acquaintance will stand by you in matters of importance, or offer more than you anticipate. For those involved in music, arts, research and manufacturing, a happy surprise is in store.


 Pisces (Feb 19- Mar 20)

You could receive a financial surprise or bonus, as good fortune seems to follow you in everything you do. You can now venture out into fields unknown; new opportunities will open up for you at this time and good luck awaits you. A prosperous week is in store. You can achieve a lot during this time, especially in your career. However, watch out that your ambitions don’t blind you to the needs of those in your personal life. Your own or another’s pride could cause strained relationships. Anticipate a period of increased communications that will entail much more than the usual number of emails and a constantly ringing phone.
