Conflicts over a contract, joint finances, or a division of labour will erupt. You must defend your interests, even at the risk of starting a fight. Your partner has plenty of excuses for not pulling their weight. What they fail to admit is how their behaviour is affecting you. It isn't fair to expect you to perform the lion's share of your mutual responsibilities. Go ahead and issue an ultimatum. More importantly, be ready to carry it out.
LEO 24 July – 23 August
Being submerged in a toxic environment is taking its toll. You have to decide whether it's time to move on. You can't compromise your health for the sake of a relationship, job, or standard of living. Breaking away from a bad situation will result in a tremendous upsurge of energy. You didn't realise just how much your surroundings were sapping your vitality. Change course for a lifestyle that will allow you to express your true feelings without fear of reprisal.
VIRGO 24 August – 23 September
Now is not the time to take a big risk. Maintaining the status quo is boring, but it is better than losing all the progress you have made. Confessing a crush will lead to disappointment. If you're going to win someone's heart, you will need more time to do so. Expressing your desire will only drive the object of your affection away. The best way to win their admiration is by expressing an interest in their opinions and showing consideration at every opportunity.
LIBRA 24 September – 23 October
Your home life will be disrupted by a situation requiring emergency repair. Be ready to move to a safe place while important electrical or plumbing work is performed. Alternately, a relative who is experiencing tremendous difficulty will ask to stay with you. Only agree to this arrangement if it is convenient for you. If this family member is notorious for their bad behaviour, you should ask them to find another place to stay. There is a limit to even your generosity.
SCORPIO 24 October – 22 November
Faulty equipment has a way of breaking down, causing annoying delays. Be ready to change your plans at a moment's notice. Resist the urge to keep using a car or computer that experiences temporary glitches. You have to get this equipment fixed now, before irreparable damage is done. It's better to pay for a small repair than have to replace a costly machine. A loved one or neighbour's harsh words are steeped in jealousy. Try to see this situation for what it really is.
SAGITTARIUS 23 November – 21 December
Be totally honest in business matters, even if you have to pay a financial penalty. If you damaged someone else's property, say so and offer to make restitution. People will respect your forthright behaviour. It's important to keep all of your receipts, as you might have to return some merchandise. Be aware of the return policy before putting down a lot of cash. If a store's policy is limiting, you should shop elsewhere. Why run the risk of getting stuck with a lemon?
CAPRICORN 22 December – 20 January
Don't pull rank on the people around you. Although you have a superior status, it's important to take their feelings into account. Showing that you are willing to pitch in will go a long way toward cultivating a spirit of teamwork. If you've had difficulty finding love, it may be because you are coming across as a little too arrogant. Expressing interest in another person's achievements will cause romance to come flooding back into your life. Strive for balance in all of your relationships.
AQUARIUS 21 January – 19 February
It isn't a good time to tangle with big bureaucracies. Although an organisation's policies may be ridiculous, you must obey them. The last thing you need is to have an application fall through the cracks because you've irritated some fussy bureaucrat. Gather all the information you need and be sure to make copies for your personal file. That way, you can resubmit a form if someone claims they haven't received it. Treat this torturous fan dance as a mind game. You will prevail.
PISCES 20 February – 20 March
No matter how hard you push, you won't be able to convince friends to take a certain path. It looks as though you'll have to follow the crowd or go your own way. Don't be afraid to launch a solitary venture. You're very adaptable and can handle all different sorts of jobs. Yes, you would like some company on the journey, but that isn't possible now. Summon your wits, gather your resources and move in the direction that is best for you.
ARIES 21 March – 20 April
Don't get defensive when you're challenged by an authority figure. Explain why you've performed a job in a certain way. Resist the temptation to get into a long debate. The less you say, the better you will fare with this cross examination. You're a little tired of being questioned in this manner, but try not to take it personally. Everybody is being subjected to the same level of scrutiny. If you stay calm, you won't arouse suspicion and the focus will move to someone else.
TAURUS 21 April – 21 May
Someone will try to start a debate about religion, race, or politics. Avoid this discussion like the plague. You have lots of work to do and can't afford to get distracted by a big argument. You may not realise it, but your boss is watching the group carefully. Those who perform tasks without complaint will be rewarded. The people who sit around gabbing when they should be working will be punished. If you want to remain with the organisation, keep your head down and your mouth shut.
GEMINI 22 May – 21 June
Financial problems beyond your control are wreaking havoc with your personal life. This is a welcome opportunity to practice patience. By keeping calm and staying in the moment, you will withstand all the tremendous pressure being placed on your shoulders. Resist the urge to reconsider your career as a means to get ahead. You're doing just fine. Pay off a big bill in small increments and keep reminding yourself that this situation is no reflection on your true worth.
