CANCER 22 June – 23 July
You're looking good and what's more, you know it. Take this opportunity to woo somebody over drinks. Your soft voice and captivating ways will make a fabulous impression. If you're eager to make a career move, apply for a job that seems slightly out of reach. You could be surprised when you are almost immediately offered this position, along with a very nice salary. This calls for a celebration. Your family will want to toast your good fortune over a nice dinner.

LEO 24 July – 23 August
Retreating to a private sanctuary is strongly advised. Lately, you've made the rounds of a lot of parties, which has been fun but exhausting. Take this opportunity to rest at a private hideaway. A relative may offer the use of their holiday home. A stalled work project could finally move forward again, which is good news. Don't be so quick to return to the office. You need some down time before you can attain your previous levels of productivity.

VIRGO 24 August – 23 September
Spending time with kindred spirits gives you an attractive glow. It feels so good to be surrounded by people who appreciate your sensible approach and refined taste. Lately, you might have had to work with a team of visionaries who bewildered you with their impractical ideas. Although you admired their talent, you didn't have much respect for their inability to put plans into action. A generous relative will offer to take some domestic chores off your hands. Accept with a grateful heart.

LIBRA 24 September – 23 October
You'll make a great impression on authority figures, thanks to your suggestions on making the business more profitable and efficient. You're not a fan of using shoddy materials or paying people extremely low salaries, but you do know how to speed up production without sacrificing quality. If you're single, let a friend set you up on a blind date. Your loved one has good instincts about who will make a good partner for you. Do you have a lover? Grant them a wish.

SCORPIO 24 October – 22 November
Don't sneeze at an opportunity to expand your horizons. Your boss may want to send you on a business trip. Although you really don't want to leave home right now, you should accept this offer. Once you arrive, you'll be captivated by the magic of this foreign land. You'll also be able to seal some impressive deals, as the locals will respond favourably to your mysterious ways. Go ahead and broker an unconventional deal. This is your chance to gain distinction within your company.

SAGITTARIUS 23 November – 21 December
Your sex appeal soars through the roof. Use it to attract someone who was previously indifferent to your charms. You'll know you've cracked the code when you make them laugh uncontrollably with a silly remark. It may develop that the two of you share an interest in an obscure subject. This could lead to a passionate encounter. As far as you're concerned, nothing is as energising as a good conversation. If you already have a partner, surprise them with a sentimental gift.

CAPRICORN 22 December – 20 January
Forming a partnership could help you both personally and professionally. You'll benefit from discussing plans with someone who appreciates your organisational skills. It looks as if your fellow traveller takes a more emotional approach to life, which can help balance your thinking. If you want to buy a home or renovate one, apply for a bank loan. You could get very generous terms right now. If you're not interested in making an investment, think about redecorating your least favourite room.

AQUARIUS 21 January – 19 February
Starting a fitness routine could pay off handsomely. Choose a form of exercise that requires focus and concentration. You're not the type who enjoys slogging away on the treadmill especially if you can begin to see results. Your best friend or lover will be very supportive of your goal and may even decide to keep you company when you go working out. If you hear of a good deal at a new gym, check it out. You might be able to get a terrific discount on a membership.

PISCES 20 February – 20 March
Make more time for the people and activities you love. Lately, you've been bogged down with a lot of domestic responsibility. Now you have a chance to put your feet up and let your hair down. If you're looking for love, you could find it at a professional conference. Be sure to dress well for even a casual conference. If you already have a partner, your amour could surprise you with a beautiful piece of jewellery or clothing you've been eyeing for some time.

ARIES 21 March – 20 April
Making your home more comfortable should be your first priority. Having a comfortable retreat from the outside world will help you cope with stress. It will also put your personal and professional lives in better balance. Your distinctive look attracts plenty of admirers. If you're single, you'll have your pick of several suitors who are intent on winning your heart. Are you in a relationship? Your amour will be proud to have you on their arm. Enjoy a night on the town together.

TAURUS 21 April – 21 May
Good news from a relative is cause for celebration. Call a bunch of people over for an impromptu party. You don't need to feed them anything fancy; just get everyone together to savour this happy time. Of course, it's practically impossible for you to host an event that isn't elegant, comfortable and tasteful. Somehow, you manage to make even the simplest fare look like a magnificent feast. Trust your instincts about assembling a musical play list everyone will enjoy.

GEMINI 22 May – 21 June
A lucrative job is yours for the asking. There could be a lot of competition for this post, but your rivals don't have your gift of the gab. With a little subtle persuasion, you'll be given this plum position on the spot. Good friends are anxious to see you. Be sure to accept an invitation to a surprise party. This will give you a chance to catch up with everyone all at once. Lately, you've been out of circulation. It's time to jump back into the social pool.
