Here’s our star guide for this week.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20) In a quieter week there is the chance to think over recent events. You may think that something could have been done in a better way, but you did what was right at the time. Don’t look back but move forward with optimism. Throwing yourself into work or helping someone gets you on the right track. There is a lot of love and support around you. Accept invitations and go somewhere you haven’t been before.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) Having created something of an emotional splash last week, there are sure to be some ripples. Still, it is good to feel in control and hopeful again. Inspiration comes in the form of group activities, possibly connected with the holiday ahead. Cash is still likely to be a concern, so spend wisely. Looking for bargains? Don’t dismiss boot fairs and charity shops. Get on a bus to an affluent area for the best bargains in the latter!
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) Highs and lows this week can make you feel more than a bit confused. If someone is giving mixed messages, you need to insist on a clear answer. This is a time of changes and unexpected ones at that! The more flexible you are emotionally, the less you will feel any bumps. If you don’t feel like a challenge, change direction. Surround yourself with people who want to move forward and get great plans going for the holidays.
CANCER (June 22 - July 22) This feels like the calm after a storm and a few days of adjustment are needed. However, the New Moon as the week begins gives a fresh attitude. Wasting time is not on your list of ‘things to do’! Advice given midweek is helpful but may not go far enough. Is a bit of research needed? Agreeing on the form of a family get-together may not be straightforward. Don’t forget to consider what you want!
LEO (July 23 - August 23) You should be pleased with the outcome of your efforts this week. It may be a slow starter but by midweek there is real progress. Nothing seems to be easy, but then you would only get bored if it were! Being pulled in more than one direction? Stand still for a while and see what happens. Maybe someone is relying on you too much. Give them a chance to do things for themselves before stepping in.
VIRGO (August 24 - September 23) Partnerships are showing more promise but you are expected to keep your side of an arrangement. Being honest about your needs may not be the easiest way forward. However, biting the bullet now brings any bad feeling to a close. Insist on stepping forward and not even looking back. Being single-minded is sometimes the only way to really get out of a rut.
LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) Knowing what you want from your life is a step in the right direction. This week you are more concerned with how to begin getting there. Although there is an urge to leap forward, one step at a time will be more successful. This gives the chance to adjust your path as you go along. It is hard when you can see your goal but it still seems a long way off. Even so, there are better ways than just rushing down the first path you come to.
SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) Going in the wrong direction is a real possibility this week if you try to run rather than walk. You won’t lose your way but you could waste a lot of time. Finances, too, can be better handled if there is time to consider the best method. What you don’t know, ask! Inspiration from home comes suddenly and unexpectedly. There, aren’t you glad that you bothered to listen?
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21) We are still looking at a romantic and caring time this week. Don’t forget to give praise where it is due, even if you feel that it is too little and late. Someone who tries to irritate you midweek should be given a wide berth. If you want special people around you when the holiday comes, start planning now! It could be better to arrange your own gathering rather than accept the first that comes along.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20) This is the time of year when we are all forced to revise our finances. It is the run-up to the holiday period that can cause stress. Remember, though, that it is the thought that you put into your presents that matters. Showing others that you know and appreciate them is the great fun activity at this time of the year. A plant lasts longer than chocolates and a well-chosen word is never forgotten.
AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19) This week is a bit like being on a trampoline. Ups and downs can be both exciting and unexpected. It is all a matter of control, which, at the moment, doesn’t seem to be consistent. A bit of confusion sets in midweek when you could misunderstand a comment or situation. It can be a frantic time. Taking yourself out of it for a few days is preferable to getting ‘het up’.
PISCES (February 20 - March 20) Hold on to your time, money and sanity by being willing to take charge. Any situation can be turned to your advantage if you are determined enough. Is there any reason why you should take second best? Is there any reason why you should wait for someone else to make a decision? Often too modest, you let others go ahead and put you in less than ideal situations. Let us change all that. Now.
