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)

Events that take place this week will allow you to learn about your feelings. Avoid any obsession, or an idea you cannot get out of your mind that seems to be running you, or be careful about feelings of possessiveness and jealousy in emotional relationships. Travel brings happiness and excitement and your powers of leadership are amplified and you are able to sway others to co-operate in matters of mutual benefit. A career change or promotion may be in store and new changes will keep you busy. Financial aspects are getting better, but don’t spend on the swing what you have gained on the roundabout. Home entertaining and social activities should be kept to a minimum to avoid unnecessary expense. This is a time to take the initiative with everything.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20) 

Don’t be side tracked by business colleagues who try to keep you from progressing in your own way.  This week may be associated with an increase in communications with people abroad, or a stepping up of interest in educational, philosophical or spiritual subjects. You may feel yourself going through a question and answer routine, trying to find answers to the impossible.  Your outlook on family matters will become changed, things that used to bother you now seem trivial. Not the clearest of times ahead, however an important situation may arise concerning a holiday, social gathering or a wedding that needs your assistance. Take care, there is the danger of foggy thinking and of your being misled or getting too carried away with some plan or idea concerning others.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

You may have to face a lot of mental pressure and your love life and relationships in general will be unpredictable and difficult. Romance can be unpredictable or you may suddenly become involved in relationships that are quite different from what you would normally expect. A stable marriage may go through a period of readjustment; this is a good time for releasing all the hidden tensions that have built up between you and your partner. Family issues may require adjustment, watch your stubbornness. You can soon forget those heavy burdens that have hung over you in the past, now is the time to reach for the sky and remember nothing ventured, nothing gained. Now is the time to see yourself clear, do the things that matter to you most.

Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)

Holiday plans and recreational activities can now be made and you should enlist the help of family and friends in order to complete any large jobs around your home or property. Leisure plans for this week will come under the influence of friends and you will go along with their ideas. You may receive favourable news about a new job, project or legal matter. An agreeable attraction could tickle your fancy now, however this is not a time for getting too serious. Enjoy any flirtations and keep them as just that - a bit of fun. You are not likely to be too productive during this week, but does it matter? Money attracts through friends and speculation and don’t be at all surprised if a little good fortune comes your way.

 Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)

The desire for variety, travel and social activity will be strong. Don’t neglect your daily obligations just because you feel like participating in amusement and recreation. Your relationships particularly romantic ones, intensify and have a deep, compelling, urgent quality. You may have a hard time being clearheaded right now. Thoughts and ideas that come to you may be inappropriate, or misleading. A lot of nervous energy within you may cause verbal arguments with an authority figure or someone older than yourself. Visits from distant family members, friends or loved ones could make this a demanding time. Educational, religious or cultural conditionings may also highlight your week. Use your creative imagination in finding solutions to work-related problems and you may surprise yourself with the outcome. An interest in writing may attract you.

 Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

Business, professional and personal matters are looking good, if there has been a misunderstanding lately you’ll have an opportunity to put things right. Fear of your own inadequacies may distort perspective if you are not careful. Try to be less secretive with your emotions and more open, that way it will be easier to communicate your feelings. If you behave too directly, forcefully or aggressively towards others now, they are bound to react in kind. Tone down your enthusiasm and guard against a very real risk of injury proneness. Anticipate a period of instant attractions, coupled with the tendency to fall in and out of love suddenly. Unstable relationships will be tested now and break ups are possible. Expect the unexpected in love, romantic surprises are in store.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Your apprehensiveness combined with desire to pass tests or examinations is totally unfounded. This is a week of building confidence and having a go at anything that appeals to you. A pleasant surprise is in store concerning work or service rolls and you may be offered a new contract or an opportunity to show the world what you are made of. People may be in contact with you from far-away places with magnificent ideas on how you can make money or improve your present status. Listen to the advice of professionals, they may direct you on the right track. A strange situation may develop with relatives, family or children from a distance. This may be a week of nostalgia and you may find yourself spending money on CD’s and DVD’s

 Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

Unconventional behaviour is the norm at the moment and you could find yourself in contact with different or unusual people. Little annoyances could spoil what can be an otherwise pleasant period if you’re not careful. You could feel a touch out-of-sorts. Try not to react to situations and make every effort to be tactful towards others. Travel, creative activity or music can all give you pleasure at the moment. Your imagination is enhanced and you are more receptive to the subtle things in life. You may find your specialised talents are much in demand now. This is an exciting time for all-new developments, changes and interests and you may be able to clinch a few deals. Meditation, or time spent near water can replenish your spirit.

 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)

Now is the time for planting seeds that will bear fruit over the next two months. Long-distance travel, higher education, or simply by being more outreaching and embracing of life and others, brings rewards. Exciting news may reach you about a new position or opportunity. Personal relationships will undergo a major positive change and your romantic life, possessions and home environment may receive a well-deserved boost. Close friends may drop in quite unexpectedly, so be prepared for those who enjoy your company or love.  Business, professional and personal matters are all looking good. You are now preparing for a major change in your destiny. Business and financial investments may prosper this week and you may receive a sudden windfall. Treat yourself to an outing; it will make you feel good.

  Pisces (Feb 19- Mar 20)

This can be a very pleasant and enjoyable week, you are able to relax and gain a brief break from the rush and pressures of modern living. A social setting could bring you into contact with someone influential or significant. Many happy surprises or invitations can be expected. Love and relationships are favoured at this time; you will get along smoothly with loved ones without feeling that you are surrendering your identity. Romance, travel and fun times will make this a very hectic period although you may be a little confused or worried over trivia. Discuss your position with those who can give you supportive understanding. This week can create an agreeable and gentle atmosphere. Others seem more receptive to your emotional needs and are willing to help if you ask.
