Aries (Mar21/Apr20) Beware of making an impulsive gamble. This is not the time to play fast and loose with your precious possessions.
A serious talk with a romantic or business partner makes you a little anxious about the future. The two of you will have to make some compromises if your relationship is going to remain on solid ground.
A good friend is more supportive of your schemes and dreams. Consider whether you are setting your sights a little too high. Slow and steady wins the race.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) A confrontational friend or relative causes a scene in a public place, filling you with embarrassment. Remember you are not responsible for their behaviour.
By distancing yourself from this pest, your reputation will remain intact. You’re straining beneath a tremendous workload at home or at the office.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much help available to relieve the strain. At times like this, the best strategy is to treat yourself gently whenever and wherever possible.
Gemini (May22/Jun21) A loud argument might break out between you and a relative or neighbour. You’re tired of listening to them going on and on. Unfortunately, nothing you say or do will change their mind. Say what’s on your mind and then move on to greener pastures.
A creative project isn’t going as well as you hoped. Busying yourself with mundane duties will trigger a breakthrough. A wonderful opportunity to travel or study will fall in your lap. Don’t hesitate to seize this opportunity.
Cancer (Jun22/Jul23) It’s tempting to ignore your principles just to make extra cash. Ultimately you’ll regret such a decision. Stick to your guns, even if it upsets your family. There are some things that are more important than having a ton of cash at your disposal.
Fortunately, a loved one is eager to share their resources with you. Go ahead and accept their generous offer. You’ve helped plenty of people in the past; now it’s time for you to receive some bounty.
Leo (Jul24/Aug23) It will be impossible to control your temper with an overbearing authority figure. You’re tired of being micromanaged. Unfortunately, this outburst will get you in real trouble. It may be necessary to ask a relative or neighbour to bail you out.
Let this be a lesson about letting off steam in public. Find a healthy outlet for your emotions, like brisk exercise or journal writing.
A friend, lover, or business partner wants to take you on a trip. A change of scenery will be refreshing.
Virgo (Aug24/Sep23) Hidden resentments are driving romance from your door. It’s hard to attract love when you feel so negative. Instead of dwelling on your disappointments, turn your attention to moneymaking opportunities.
Taking a freelance assignment will put some extra money in your pocket. It will also put you in contact with some truly compassionate people who renew your faith in humanity. Go ahead and treat yourself to a new gismo or gadget or maybe a new outfit or night out on the town.
Libra (Sep24/Oct23) Mean what you say and say what you mean, especially when dealing with business executives and government authorities. There’s no point in beating around the bush.
Friends are pressuring you to buy luxuries you can’t afford. Turn a deaf ear to their persuasive arguments. Right now, you’ve got to be saving money, not spending it. The chance to study alongside a talented artist will fall into your lap. It will be a welcome change of pace to exercise your creative muscles.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) The powers that be are tightening the screws, making your personal life miserable. It’s hard for you to relax and unwind after you’ve spent the whole day doing battle with an authority figure. Keep quiet about your fears.
If your enemies know how nervous you are, they’ll go for the jugular.
On the other hand, if you remain cool under fire, your detractors will look for a weaker victim. A compassionate relative will offer you a chance to get away and relax when this is all over.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) There’s no point arguing about religion or politics. In fact, you could do some serious damage to a relationship if you keep pressing your point. “Vive la difference” should be your motto, especially when it comes to dealing with colleagues.
An older friend has good advice for you regarding a career matter. You have to pay more attention to details to make a good impression on an important executive. Good news about a creative opportunity is on the way.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) Pressuring a loved one to do what you want will end in disaster. You’ll attract more flies with honey than you will vinegar. When proposing a plan, make it sound as attractive as possible, then make a strategic retreat.
Give your friend plenty of time to make up their mind. In the meantime, focus your energy on organising a fundraiser or putting together an important meeting. By the time you finish, you’ll have your answer and it will probably be the one you want.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) Your best friend, lover, or business partner will try to embarrass you in front of a big audience. They are reacting to the discrepancy between the way you act in public and private. You have to admit, you tend to be a lot more warm and generous when you’re in the middle of a crowd.
Try being a little more attentive to your most intimate friends. If you’re going to gain entry to a cultural, religious, or educational organisation, you’ll have to take a difficult test.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) It’s better to question a plan than stay silent and keep the peace. You must voice your opposition firmly and cite past failures or people will just sweep your concerns under the rug. Yes, you won’t win any popularity contests by throwing sand in the machinery, but in the end, you’ll win everyone’s respect.
It will be necessary to fill out lots of paperwork before receiving a refund, inheritance, or dividend. Trust your instincts about someone who appears to have a crush on you.
