You long to get away from it all. Although your budget is tight, you can still manage to enjoy an inexpensive getaway. Ask to borrow a friend's holiday home. After all, you've performed plenty of good deeds for them in the past. If you don't know anybody who has a getaway, consider visiting somebody who lives in a nearby city. You don't need a fancy hotel room to have fun. All you require is a place to sleep and store your luggage.
LEO 24 July – 23 August
Trust your instincts about an intimate relationship. It feels like someone wants to know you on a deeper level. Embarking on a romance will be both scary and exhilarating. That's because you never know what this admirer is really thinking. The only clues you will gain will be through their body language. You might want to read a book on this subject. Better yet, just go with the flow. There's no better sensation than getting carried away by a tide of romance.
VIRGO 24 August – 23 September
Attending to the needs of your best friend, lover or business partner comes naturally to you. You love being of service to others. Resist the temptation to offer advice to someone who just wants a sounding board. Sometimes lending a sympathetic ear is the best form of help you can offer. Avoid talking about your personal life in a public setting. You never know who is listening. You don't want a malicious gossiper to spread news of your private life.
LIBRA 24 September – 23 October
You yearn to be pampered and petted. This is a great time to go to a salon or spa. If you're unhappy with your stylist, ask a fantastic looking friend for a referral. You yearn for a style that is classic but not outdated. Fortunately, you'll be able to find someone who is able to put a modern twist on a traditional cut. This transformation will make you feel like one in a million. The heat is turning up on a casual flirtation.
SCORPIO 24 October – 22 November
Enjoy a day of leisure. You've earned it. If you've recently embarked on a relationship, take things slow. Prolonging the courtship phase will pave the way for a long term union. Do you already have a lover? Schedule a romantic getaway. You'll enjoy lazing about a secluded beach together. Resist the urge to head for a cosmopolitan city, or you'll return feeling utterly exhausted. This is your chance to recharge your batteries, not drain them. Besides, it will be easier to focus on each other when there are no distractions.
SAGITTARIUS 23 November – 21 December
Thinking of bygone days will prompt you to look through old photo albums and mementoes. You rarely fall prey to sentimentality, but when you do, it hits hard. Resist the urge to call a former lover. Although you have fond memories of this relationship, there is a good reason it fell apart. Getting back into each other's orbit will lead to another painful separation. Do yourself a favour and keep your eyes trained on the future. The best is yet to be.
CAPRICORN 22 December – 20 January
You'll be busy running domestic errands all day. If you have children you'll be expected to serve as their chauffeur. This would be a good time to get your car serviced, too. The more often you have it checked, the less likely it will be to break down. Having a reliable ride is critical for someone with your tight schedule. Resist the urge to overdo it in the food and drink department. You won't fall prey to exhaustion if you follow a nourishing diet.
AQUARIUS 21 January – 19 February
Shopping for household items gives you a pleasant feeling of security. You won't find the kinds of stylish items you want, but you will get a good price on appliances you use every day. Choose quality over style. It won't be possible to attend two parties. Be discreet when turning down one invitation. You don't want to host to think you prefer someone else's company. Explain that you accepted another invitation before you received theirs. Take your cues from a diplomatic Libra.
PISCES 20 February – 20 March
You're overflowing with love for your family. Spending some quality time with your kin will recharge your batteries. You don't have to arrange anything fancy. A home cooked meal and cosy domesticity will be a real treat. Don't make promises you can't keep to a child. If you're going to commit to an outing, clear everything else from your schedule. Be ready to tell your boss you can't work late that night. This relationship is too important to jeopardise. Be a role model for trustworthiness.
ARIES 21 March – 20 April
Abandoning yourself to a world of fantasy feels heavenly. Treat yourself to a wonderful romance, science fiction, or adventure novel. It will be such a relief to escape the pressures of everyday life. A relative or neighbour will scoff at your activities, calling your tastes immature. Don't get defensive. Just give them a superior smile and go back to what you are doing. The best revenge is having fun while everyone else stays steeped in their self made prisons.
TAURUS 21 April – 21 May
Let your friends wait on you for a change. Normally, you're the one who is always planning the parties, buying the gifts and scheduling the group outings. While it gives you pleasure to display your organisational skills, you do occasionally yearn for a break. You will get just such an opportunity soon, when a loved one invites you along on a trip. Once you accept this offer, you will have to suppress the urge to take over. Jump in the passenger's seat and enjoy the ride.
GEMINI 22 May – 21 June
An authority figure won't give you a lot of leeway. If you ask for special privileges, you will get in their bad graces. Take this opportunity to prove you can play by the rules, just like everyone else. A bigger and better job opportunity is on the way, but you must be patient. In the meantime, keep your head down and focus on your work. Resist the temptation to post scandalous pictures on a social networking site. You never know who will see them.
