There's nothing wrong with enjoying creature comforts. You're tired of eating fast food and opting for inexpensive toiletries. Go ahead and splurge on a gourmet meal or designer cologne. Spending money on yourself will bolster your ego. When people see you value yourself so highly, they will follow suit. Adding some tasteful decorations to your home is also good. Choose classic pieces that will stand the test of time. If you need inspiration, check out some decorating books from the library.
LEO 24 July – 23 August
You thrive on new experiences. Take in the latest movie, museum exhibit, or restaurant opening. You have the power to set trends. A good review from you will attract a crowd of customers. If you've recently fallen in love, all other considerations will fall by the wayside. Chores and family responsibilities can wait for another time. You're intent on enjoying this heady sensation to the fullest. If others think you've lost your mind, so what? You'll be the one having fun.
VIRGO 24 August – 23 September
A profound spiritual connection allows you to cope with stress. You know there is more to life than worldly matters like money, status and power. You're smart enough to draw satisfaction from simple things. Good food, natural beauty and wildlife bring profound peace. If you're struggling in a relationship, take a walk outside. Communing with nature will put your problems in perspective. They'll also make you aware of your own mistakes. Human beings may be flawed, but they're also capable of great improvement.
LIBRA 24 September – 23 October
You don't share most people's opinions. At times, this can feel alienating. Right now, you take pride in having a distinctive outlook. It allows you to make perceptive remarks that impress your superiors. Feel free to express your views at a meeting. At first, people will roll their eyes at your wild suggestions. If you stay cool and keep pitching ideas, your critics will be silenced by an executive who thinks you're brilliant. Talent always rises to the top.
SCORPIO 24 October – 22 November
Financial security is critical for you. You're tired of trying to make a banquet out of scraps. Although you're very good at stretching resources, you simply need more income to be comfortable. Getting a raise or even a better paid job should be your first priority. Don't feel compelled to enter a field that bores you. You can find a position that is both economically and emotionally rewarding. It's all about putting together a compelling CV. Ask an eagle eyed friend for guidance.
SAGITTARIUS 23 November – 21 December
You've always been spontaneous and that's especially true now. Going on an impromptu trip will appeal to your adventurous side. Don't bother packing too much. You can always pick up anything you need when you arrive. This trip will fuel your creative side. You've been blessed with writing talent. Be sure to jot down some ideas for a story while you are away. A titbit of overheard conversation will provide divine inspiration. If you're single, you're sure to be a hit with the locals.
CAPRICORN 22 December – 20 January
Your thoughts are never far from the bedroom. This would be a great time to initiate an intimate encounter with your amour. It's virtually impossible to resist your charm. Are you single? You could attract lots of romantic attention by wearing something dark and form fitting to a party. Don't be afraid to enhance the most attractive features of your body and face. You've been given a gift. It would be a shame to squander your good looks out of modesty.
AQUARIUS 21 January – 19 February
Politeness counts for a lot with you. Recently, you've been impressed with someone who has entered the scene and displayed impeccable manners. Their courtly behaviour reminds you of another time. As a general rule, you're always looking towards the future. It does bother you when people are rude and crude. Maybe you could brainstorm with this newcomer on teaching some etiquette lessons. Market them to business executives who want an edge on the competition. Nothing makes a better impression than excellent decorum.
PISCES 20 February – 20 March
It's easy to get wrapped up in work. You're focused on a demanding project that requires a great deal of imagination. It's fun getting paid to put your natural creativity to good use. Friends will want you to come out and play, but you're just not ready yet. You won't be until you've made sure every last detail of this job is absolutely perfect. A colleague who isn't pulling their weight should be confronted. You're not willing to take the blame for their shoddy performance.
ARIES 21 March – 20 April
If there's anything that turns you off, it's being mean about money. If you're going to treat someone, you will do it in grand style. Young children can always depend on you to get them the coolest toys, rather than some boring educational gift. Similarly, your amour knows you wouldn't dream of wrapping up an appliance. More often than not, you'll spring for a piece of jewellery or some other glamorous present. When a friend asks for a practical gift you should respect their request.
TAURUS 21 April – 21 May
People will accuse you of being too sensitive. That's better than being insensitive. Friends and colleagues rely on you to handle delicate situations. You'd never barge into an argument without asking plenty of questions first. This diplomatic approach wins you a lot of friends. When you form an opinion, you never hold back. You would never praise someone to their face and then mock them behind their back. If a loved one hurts your feelings through selfish behaviour, say so. You deserve more consideration.
GEMINI 22 May – 21 June
As far as you're concerned, variety is the spice of life. That's why it's so difficult for you to make a commitment, whether it's falling in love or ordering dessert. If you had your way, life would be one giant buffet table, allowing you to take a little sample of everything on offer. Are you planning a trip? Stay somewhere that is equidistant from the city and country. Sampling both worlds will add a spring in your step and a sparkle to your eyes.
