You're dragging your feet in a relationship, which is hurting someone's feelings. You owe your admirer an explanation. If you have no intention of settling down, be honest. Give your friend a chance to move on to greener pastures. Are you already in a serious relationship? Beware of spending too much time with your friends at the expense of your amour. The fastest way to forge intimacy is to spend quality time with your partner, without a barrage of other people around.
CANCER 22 June – 23 July
It's hard to be pleasant to an inconsiderate authority figure. Unfortunately, the person who is pushing your buttons has no idea how irritating they are. Bite your tongue the next time you are annoyed by their behaviour. Wait a few days and then broach the topic when you are both in a calm mood. You don't have to denigrate their manners. Just give specific examples of how their behaviour has caused problems for you and then politely suggest an alternative approach.
LEO 24 July – 23 August
Know the difference between mothering and smothering. Although you want to help a loved one through a difficult time, there is only so much you can do. Let them cope with their own depression and mistakes. Offer words of encouragement when you can, along with the occasional diversion. Don't fall into the trap of revolving around their issues. Spend time on a hobby that makes you feel great. Treat yourself to a movie. Cook your favourite recipe. Be good to yourself.
VIRGO 24 August – 23 September
All eyes are on you, which causes tension in a romantic relationship. Be sure to draw attention to your lover's recent accomplishments. They may be too shy to bring them up in a public setting. If you're single, resist the temptation to steer a platonic relationship into romantic waters. The last thing you need is to have a perfectly good bond ruined by sexual entanglements. Hold out for a partner who is willing to give you the physical and mental stimulation you need.
LIBRA 24 September – 23 October
Failing to express your love will create a rift within the lute. Even if you're scared of being vulnerable to someone special, you simply have to say what is in your heart. Your feelings may seem obvious, but your amour is actually wondering where they stand with you. Perhaps they feel like they're competing with your career. Whatever the source of their uncertainty, you must remove it. Are you single? Stop looking for arm candy and start searching for someone with a fine character.
SCORPIO 24 October – 22 November
Your expectations of a romantic relationship are too high. Someone who is desperate to win your approval needs encouragement. If your amour's methods are different from your own, remain silent. Express your gratitude for their contributions, even if you're not fully satisfied with the results. The more positive reinforcement you give, the harder they will try to satisfy you. The best partnerships occur when both of you accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative.
SAGITTARIUS 23 November – 21 December
Intense anger has its roots in a failed plan of action. Just because one avenue has closed doesn't mean you are doomed. A bigger and better opportunity will arrive, provided you remain calm. Happiness is hard to fathom now, but rest assured it will resurface. It's possible you have been chasing a dream that is really someone else's desire. Look deep inside and ask what you really want from life. You're not meant to embrace the mainstream. Channel your rebellious side.
CAPRICORN 22 December – 20 January
It's hard to be charitable towards a family member who is always provoking you. Although you want to relieve some of their pain, you may not be able to do so. That's because your relative is their own worst enemy. No matter what opportunities are before them, they'll manage to find a way to fail. Put your energy into a relationship that affords more enjoyment. If you're single, don't be so intent on finding a partner who shares your background.
AQUARIUS 21 January – 19 February
Try not to be too critical of a relative or neighbour who is trying their best. You've been blessed with a sharp intellect, but not everyone is so lucky. Give your friend credit for trying something new. You may not realise it, but your opinion has a tremendous impact on their self esteem. If you show approval of their efforts, they will continue to develop and improve their skills. Pretty soon, they'll become so adept that even you will be impressed.
PISCES 20 February – 20 March
Resist the urge to buy someone's affection. Whether you're dealing with a child, lover, or friend, you must tread carefully. Spending lots of money on an expensive gift will fall flat. You're better off devoting more quality time to your loved one. Start scaling back your work schedule, even at the risk of annoying your boss. Your colleagues can cover for you. Goodness knows you're always filling in for them. Balance your personal and professional lives. You're not cut out to be a workaholic.
ARIES 21 March – 20 April
Obsessing over a loved one's safety isn't doing either of you any good. Stop sticking your nose into another person's affairs. If your friend has an accident, it won't be your fault. Trying to protect them from their own foolhardy decisions will be an exercise in futility. Don't make any radical changes to your home life before talking to your relatives or roommates. They may have some serious objections to your plans. The more accommodating you are, the happier the household will be.
TAURUS 21 April – 21 May
Your loyalties are divided. Normally, you have no trouble setting your priorities where relationships are concerned. Recently, someone has entered your social circle that has captured your imagination. Although neither one of you is inclined to embark on a romance together, you can't help but think about this charmer at odd intervals throughout the day. This is starting to worry you. Devote more time to a devoted partner. It's time to put your physical relationship back on track.
