Make plans for the future. Ordinarily, you put everybody else first. Lately, you have felt tired and depressed. That's because you're not paying attention to your intuition, which is urging you to take a more creative path. Whether this means finding a more stimulating job, moving to a different country, or embarking on a new romance is immaterial. The important thing is to move towards the life you truly want. Your decision may cause a temporary separation from loved ones, but absence will make the heart grow fonder.
LEO 24 July – 23 August
You're not ready to share private information, so follow your intuition. The time will come when you can be more forthright about a difficult situation. Until then, sit tight and be good to yourself. You're not the type who enjoys secret intrigues, but sometimes it's best to play your cards close to the chest. It's possible you are recovering from a stressful situation and don't want well-meaning friends trying to come to your rescue. That's fine. Just don't isolate yourself from your nearest and dearest.
VIRGO 24 August – 23 September
Take time out for friends and family. Too often, you get so wrapped up in responsibilities that you neglect your social life. Hanging out with people who celebrate your quirky ways will be uplifting. It's a relief not having to defend your behaviour all the time. A friend or lover may resent your decision to have fun with the gang. Stand firm about your decision. A very conscientious person like you needs to draw healthy boundaries, even with loved ones.
LIBRA 24 September – 23 October
You're making lots of progress on the professional front. If you're unemployed, keep applying for jobs and sending out CVs. Your chances for landing a good position are very strong, especially if you are exploring industries involving property, agriculture and hospitality. Your family isn't very supportive right now. Some of your relatives feel your dreams are impractical. Tune out the negativity and continue to follow your star. It may be necessary to take a dull job to pay the bills, but eventually your persistence will pay off.
SCORPIO 24 October – 22 November
This is a good time to travel, no matter what the reason. If you leave on business, you will be sure to sign a great new client. Do you need a break? Schedule a trip to a beautiful seaside resort. If you can't get away, focus on a writing project you've been contemplating for some time. Writing a blog or magazine article will attract lots of favourable attention. You have a knack for saying things people have always thought, but never dare articulate.
SAGITTARIUS 23 November – 21 December
Discussions about finance come first and foremost. Whether you're filling out tax forms, negotiating a legal settlement, or applying for a scholarship is irrelevant. The important thing is to sit down and fill out paperwork, no matter how boring it seems. You need this money to cover expenses, but it won't be available until you submit certain forms. It might also be necessary to appear in court or make an official statement. Stay calm and take things step by step. This, too, will pass.
CAPRICORN 22 December – 20 January
Teamwork is the name of the game. Collaborating with an intuitive partner will result in tremendous success. You're good at handling the practical side of things, while your colleague is better at the public relations aspect. If you're looking for love, seek out someone whose life experience is dramatically different from your own. Opposites attract for a reason. Pairing up with an unusual person will lend additional perspective. All of a sudden, it will be easy to empathise with others. That's an incredible gift.
AQUARIUS 21 January – 19 February
You're extremely disciplined, refusing to switch gears until you've completed each job on your list of things to do. Getting exercise is crucial, it helps alleviate stress. You're so busy with work that you might neglect someone special. Check your calendar. Is it someone's birthday or anniversary? Have you been meaning to call and congratulate a friend on their recent success? When is the last time you checked on an elderly relative? People are more important than projects.
PISCES 20 February – 20 March
This promises to be a highly romantic phase. If you're single and hoping to find love, you are in luck. A tender, attentive person has their heart set on you. Don't be so quick to dismiss their flirtatious overtures. Although this admirer doesn't look like your type, they have hidden attributes that are tremendous. Take a chance. If you're already attached, you'll have an opportunity to spend quality time with your amour. Enjoy this sweet interlude to the fullest.
ARIES 21 March – 20 April
Making changes to your living situation is strongly advised. Whether you want to move or renovate your place, it's important to set the wheels in motion. Putting off the inevitable will only create more stress. If you're not planning a big transformation, you might want to start painting a dull room or patching up a leak in the roof. Hire someone who comes highly recommended. You might have to pay a little extra, but quality workmanship ultimately pays off in the long run.
TAURUS 21 April – 21 May
You'll be buzzing about like a bee in a bottle trying to attend to a variety of responsibilities. Don't be surprised when your mobile goes off every five seconds. If you can't handle all the interference, turn your phone off for an hour or two, just for the sake of your own sanity. Check your messages at regular intervals so you don't miss any important information. Restrain yourself if you're thinking of sending a sarcastic email to a colleague or your humour will be misinterpreted.
GEMINI 22 May – 21 June
Taking charge of your finances is important. Normally, you don't worry about petty little expenditures. By keeping a record of everything you buy, you will be surprised. The lion's share of your income is being frittered away with impulse purchases. Curbing these expenditures will result in tremendous savings. Putting yourself on a budget sounds like a drag, but it won't be if you treat the experience like a game. Make it your mission to stretch your resources as far as they will possibly go.
