Watch your temper, or it will cause a mighty explosion. Dealing with a frustrating spiritual, educational, or cultural leader is making your blood boil. You simply can't bear their hypocrisy. Unfortunately, there is no way to make your displeasure known without being extremely unpleasant. Rather than compromise your reputation, you're better off being icily polite. Channel your frustrations into an energetic exercise session. Brisk physical activity will help you blow off steam.
LEO 24 July – 23 August
An argument with a friend puts you in a bad mood. You hate crossing swords with someone you love. You can't sit idly by when they make assertions that are fundamentally untrue. Countering their claims with facts and figures will help you win the argument, but you may lose the friendship. Fortunately, people will throw their support to you. They're tired of hearing ignorant opinions being presented as facts. Keep standing in defence of truth and justice.
VIRGO 24 August – 23 September
It will take all of your energy to deal with an aggressive supervisor. If you're being addressed in an abusive way, fight back. There's no reason you should sacrifice your dignity for a job. Standing up for yourself will give you a surge of confidence. Take this opportunity to go after a newcomer who has captured your fancy. You admire their leadership ability, while they enjoy your sharp intellect. Together, you could build a rewarding relationship that has equal parts of passion and pragmatism.
LIBRA 24 September – 23 October
This isn't a good time to go on a political or religious crusade. Nobody wants to be lectured about what beliefs they should hold. If you have to converse with someone, stick to light topics like movies, books and television shows. It's possible someone will challenge your philosophy of life. Don't get drawn into such an argument. You shouldn't feel compelled to talk about such a personal matter with a casual acquaintance. A relative with a strong personality will be quick to lend emotional support.
SCORPIO 24 October – 22 November
Someone is making you uncomfortable with their romantic attentions. You must make it clear you do not welcome these overtures. If this behaviour persists, alert your superiors. Are you the one in charge? You will have to fire the troublemaker. If you don't, you will set a dangerous precedent. By upholding a zero tolerance policy for such nonsense, you will avoid a world of trouble. Send a sternly worded memo to the entire organisation. You're operating a place of business, not a dating service.
SAGITTARIUS 23 November – 21 December
Your partner is needlessly picking on you, which has become tiresome. Standing in your own defence will result in a big argument. Let the fireworks come, or resentment will continue to build. If you're on your own, it may be because you're too contentious. Learn how to pick your battles. An exciting moneymaking opportunity will transform your financial future. At long last, you will have the funds to buy a home, car, or business. This comes as a tremendous relief.
CAPRICORN 22 December – 20 January
A colleague is wearing on your last nerve. Lately, they've been expecting you to perform their duties. You will have to set them straight about your job description. You don't mind coming to someone's rescue when they're overwhelmed. It's a different story when it comes to doing two jobs. This is where your powerful personality comes in handy. When you tell someone to back off, they do so immediately. Nobody wants to get on your bad side and with good reason.
AQUARIUS 21 January – 19 February
Lighten up in the love department. Your partner may not share your interest in current events, but that doesn't make them shallow. Think back to the time when you first came together. You once appreciated all the fun and laughter your amour brought to your life. Try focusing on these qualities now. It will help if you heap on the praise and lay off the criticism. Are you single? You could meet someone special at a spiritual retreat.
PISCES 20 February – 20 March
You won't let anyone get you down, especially your family. Lately, it feels like they are intent on breaking your spirit. That's too bad, since it only fuels your determination to realise a dream. Your goals are very different from the ones your relatives have. You want to lead a life rich in culture, art and politics. If that means moving to a sophisticated city, so be it. Ultimately, you can bloom wherever you are planted. Just make sure to follow your own impulses, rather than someone else's vision.
ARIES 21 March – 20 April
Someone will ask for your opinion and you will be happy to offer it. Unfortunately, your friend will resent your honest feedback. It may be better to give a noncommittal response. You hate being a hypocrite, but that's better than being punished for having strong views. An authority figure is impressed by your diplomatic skills and may give you an opportunity to work independently. It's a relief to escape the scrutiny of a micromanager. You're a lot more creative when left to your own devices.
TAURUS 21 April – 21 May
It's hard to hold on to your money when you're surrounded by temptation. Stay away from your favourite stores and websites. You should be conserving your resources. Putting money in the bank will give you more freedom to do the kinds of work you want. It will also keep stress at bay. An opportunity to show off your expertise gives your ego a much needed boost. Stop undervaluing yourself. Your skills are worth good money. Charge accordingly and your professional reputation will soar.
GEMINI 22 May – 21 June
Don't be so quick to go on the offensive. Contrary to what you might think, you are not surrounded by enemies. So many people admire your talent and want you to achieve success. The sooner you stop acting as if you're under attack, the happier you will be. An intimate relationship proves comforting. It's nice to release your inhibitions with someone you can trust. Are you single? You could meet someone special at a nightclub, antique store, or charity shop.
