Leo (Jul24/Aug23) You're always in demand so you've hardly a minute to yourself and you wouldn’t have it any other way!
If the idea of relocation pops up don't be too surprised; someone would love it if you lived closer to them. This doesn't mean you must move, but it needs to be discussed and perhaps negotiated and you must not feel pressurised.
It would be wise of you to carve out some time to think about this when you're alone and not under anyone's influence.
Virgo (Aug24/Sep23) Entertaining friends or visitors from out of town adds fun to the first part of the week. Happy times can be spent at home snacking and catching up on all the news, but don't neglect an outing to a favourite local hot spot with these people.
The receipt of a message makes a big impression on you as you feel quite a strong heart connection to the sender. Postpone making any firm decisions until some time has passed and you can add logic to the response.
Libra (Sep24/Oct23) As the week unfolds your mood for doing something dreamy and romantic grows, but you're at a loss as to where to begin or how to find the time.
Watching old movies gives you some momentum as does conversing with the special person in your life.
Everything may not be as it appears so try to hold your discussions in the light of day, watch for reactions and follow the pulse of what's being said. Money flows easily in and just as easily out.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) Take a few steps back and look at what's already happened. As you check the progress you've made you need to give yourself credit for what you've achieved as well as work out what might need to be re-done. It's likely that small details that were overlooked the first time around could cause delays here and there. Make every effort to sort out financial issues with the one closest to you and find imaginative ways to have everyone come out smiling.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) People always have something to say, and some are voicing their opinions about you right now. Just be aware you're getting noticed and talked about, so keep putting your best foot forward. Even relatives are sounding off about something you did at a family gathering. Only you know if you risked creating a negative impression or if you were angelic or heroic.
Watch your spending as a tendency toward extravagance will drain your bank balance.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) You're back in a workaholic groove and accomplishing much on the professional scene, but personal contacts are slipping away while you're not looking.
You can rescue a fading relationship if you just turn to face it, but you have to want to. On examination you may decide to let it go, and if that's the case, be at peace about it, but at least take a look.
Money you hoped for may be delayed in arriving forcing you to be creative with your current finances.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) A few bumps in the road are nothing to a thinker such as yourself. You have a knack for seeing alternative ways of doing things and this gets you through what would be a setback to anyone else.
Consider all sides of the issue before committing your finances to an unsure thing. Although you're tempted by the idea of making a quick buck, remember nothing’s guaranteed!
A good laugh sets the tone at a meeting with old friends as you renew relationships.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) Why get all awkward and self-conscious just because a few people are looking at you? Your feeling ill at ease arises from your general unfamiliarity in a new situation, but once you get used to the routine you'll settle into a more comfortable niche and have those who are watching applauding.
New opportunities coming your way give you a boost and you'll have your pick of several interesting options. Follow your heart to a place of contentment; family members support you.
Aries (Mar21/Apr20) The week has its fair share of good things to do and good people to meet. A theatre outing is particularly interesting as it gives you the opportunity to mix with an enthusiastic crowd.
You're aware of someone's approving eyes on you and could decide to start something new. Your professional life is on hold as you have to wait on other people to make the final decisions and you don't think you can move ahead without their approval, but can you?
Taurus (Apr21/May21) You’ve got your thinking cap on and you’re coming up with some original notions that surprise those you live or work with. People don't necessarily see you as a creative, but you're about to shatter that myth!
Getting a fair share of physical activity scheduled into your week will be a challenge, but it's necessary if you aim to stay in the pink. Walk up the stairs instead of riding the escalator or lift, or get on your bike instead of driving; do whatever's possible.
Gemini (May22/Jun21) Make sure you have worked through all the fine details of a new opportunity and know what you’re getting into before signing any binding documents. Put your best foot forward when you're invited to an upscale event, looking the part is half the battle to feeling self-assured.
If you think of it as an acting role you'll have even more fun. Someone you've trusted in the past has changed their attitude toward you and may not be as reliable as you hoped.
Cancer (Jun22/Jul23) Effective communications are highlighted this week, so gather all the facts and figures you'll need by doing research on the topic in focus. It's important that you be accurate and keep your presentation grounded in facts, not emotion.
A close friend or neighbour has something to gripe about that involves you. Listen dispassionately and be honest with yourself about what you might have done or said to upset someone then do everything you can to put things right.
