CANCER 22 June – 23 July
Spend time on a creative project that is close to your heart. You're tired of wasting all of your energy on activities that give you little or no pleasure. Others may admire your work ethic, but it's beginning to affect your mood. You'll be amazed at how much better you feel once you start exercising your imagination. It will be easier to laugh and joke with friends. Even annoying colleagues won't seem nearly as aggravating. Don't worry if a few chores fall by the wayside.

LEO 24 July – 23 August
Get your home ready for a guest. Fresh flowers, good food and clean bedding will pave the way for a good visit. Entertaining loved ones brings out the best in you. It may be necessary to take time off work. Fortunately, your boss will accommodate you. Good news from a relative makes you breathe a sigh of relief. It's hard for you to enjoy yourself when someone close is in distress. Push your troubles aside and embrace the happy times ahead.

VIRGO 24 August – 23 September
Someone will confide a deep, dark secret to you. Your friend has picked a good person to trust, as you'd never dream of sharing this information with anyone else. You aren't above weaving this tale into a work of fiction. You're always looking for good story material. Just make sure you disguise the characters enough so they won't be recognised. A platonic friend has been harbouring a crush on you. If you decide to embark on romance together, take things slow.

LIBRA 24 September – 23 October
Take some time out of your busy schedule to enjoy the company of friends. Discussing your mutual interests will bring the intellectual stimulation you need. You're tired of focusing on work and family responsibilities all the time. Think about taking an advanced class on your favourite subject. You might be surprised at how difficult this course is at first. Don't get discouraged. The harder you study, the faster you will attain expert status. If you play your cards right, you could get a paper published.

SCORPIO 24 October – 22 November
Offer plenty of encouragement to the team. Your praise will prompt everybody to put forth their best efforts. Thanks to your natural talent for psychology, you know just what to say to inspire the people around you. Some will appreciate praise, while others will need constructive criticisms. Adjust your approach accordingly. If you're looking for work, explore opportunities related to education, writing and research. You'll find a great position that allows you to show your creativity for quite a nice salary.

SAGITTARIUS 23 November – 21 December
A legal settlement will go your way, allowing you to spend more time on your personal life. Your best friend, lover, or business partner feels neglected. Take this opportunity to shower them with attention. Going out to a nice dinner will heal the breach. Choose a quiet place where you can talk without interruption. You might be surprised to learn how much difficulty your friend is experiencing. You will be in a good position to help them through this trying time.

CAPRICORN 22 December – 20 January
Your sex appeal is at an all time high. Use it to your advantage. If you've fallen for somebody, go ahead and ask for a date. Your bold approach will be greatly respected. Are you already in a relationship? Tell your partner that you need a little tender loving care. Arrange a romantic outing for just the two of you. If you've been dissatisfied with the physical aspect of your union, make some suggestions. Together, you can rediscover the passion that first brought you together.

AQUARIUS 21 January – 19 February
You have a talent for putting others at ease. Maybe that's why your boss will ask you to handle a particularly difficult client or customer. By letting this troublemaker know you won't tolerate any nonsense, they'll treat you with respect and courtesy. If you've been longing for romance, you will find it at a theatre, concert, or disco. It's important to get out and meet new people. Internet dating services are fine, but you make a much better face to face impression.

PISCES 20 February – 20 March

It's time to pamper yourself. Getting a massage, salon treatment, or cosmetic procedure will lift your spirits. Lately, you've been feeling tired and depressed. That's because you spend the lion's share of your time on others. While your impulse to nurture friends and family is admirable, there is a limit to what you can give. Put your own needs first for a change. There's nothing selfish about wanting to be indulged. Be willing to turn away a demanding relative. You must draw healthier boundaries.

ARIES 21 March – 20 April
Flirting gives you an exciting rush of power. You can't resist the allure of a playful intellectual. The two of you love having absurd arguments. Those who know you best may think you are both barmy, but you'll enjoy having a great time. Lots of people think you are too abrasive, but your new amour enjoys your contentious attitude towards life. It's a real relief to know you don't have to walk on eggshells in this relationship. If you already have a partner, send them a passionate message.

TAURUS 21 April – 21 May
Treat yourself. You have the wherewithal to buy a few luxuries. The trick is to be mindful about your purchases. Choose things that will give you lasting pleasure. Impulse buys will quickly lose their charm. If you're looking for a job, explore opportunities that will allow you to work from home. You'll be much more productive in a work space you can decorate yourself than a sterile cubicle. If that's not an option, seek an employer that gives careful through to the office decor.

GEMINI 22 May – 21 June
This is a good day to tackle difficult conversations. Opening a talk with a positive attitude makes all the difference. When talking to customer service professionals, be as courteous and upbeat as possible. These workers are so tired of dealing with angry people that they will find you refreshing. Don't be surprised if you are given a full refund, even if company policy won't permit one. Don't be discouraged by an initial refusal. Just keep talking and joking until you get the result you want.
