CANCER 22 June – 23 July
If you need to solve a problem, head to a quiet spot where you can hear yourself think. Constant interruptions will compound your frustration. There is a way to finance an expensive project, but you'll have to ask for help. Make a list of potential benefactors then decide how to approach each one. What motivates one person to give will not move another. Therefore, you must pay careful attention to what makes each candidate tick before making your pitch.

LEO 24 July – 23 August
Spending time with friends makes you feel loved, appreciated and admired. It's such a relief to be surrounded by people who understand you. Lately, it feels like you've had to explain your motives to a bunch of befuddled acquaintances. It hurts your feelings when people assume you are being selfish. Nothing could be further from the truth. It's just that you often put your needs ahead of others, so that you are better equipped to give with an open heart.

VIRGO 24 August – 23 September
Your communication skills are especially strong and make a good impression on your boss. Don't be surprised when you're given a plum assignment. The prospect of making a public presentation fills you with fear and excitement. You'd never make the mistake that so many others do which is to blather endlessly about boring bits of trivia. Instead, you'll boil down the pertinent points to their bare essence and supplement these facts with amusing visuals and stories.

LIBRA 24 September – 23 October
You're curious about the way a friend achieves certain goals. You've always wanted to explore a creative field, but aren't sure how to break into it. Taking an advanced course can help. So can joining a professional, cultural, or religious organisation. Sometimes who you know is just as important as what you know. Fortunately, you're an excellent conversationalist and can make inroads with bigwigs in your desired industry. Offer to take an executive to lunch so you can pick their brain.

SCORPIO 24 October – 22 November
Getting to the bottom of a mystery will give you an added measure of power. Now you know how a certain person has achieved success, you can use this information to advance your own interests. This could be a simple matter of cultivating an image of success. If you want to play the part of a professional, you must look like one. Ask an image conscious Libra to help you assemble an impressive wardrobe for work. They'll show you which styles, colours and cuts look best on you.

SAGITTARIUS 23 November – 21 December
Communicate your concerns to your best friend, lover or business partner. This is a good time to address sensitive issues like money and division of labour. In the past, the two of you were unable to resolve such problems because you let emotion get in the way. Now you are both thinking logically, making it easier to implement sensible solutions. You might want to base a new budget or schedule on something that is advocated by a respected spiritual leader or teacher.

CAPRICORN 22 December – 20 January
An interesting work assignment could land on your desk. You'll enjoy coming up with innovative solutions to system wide problems. You might have to ask people from different levels of the organisation to find out what needs to be changed. This is a wonderful opportunity to make valuable contacts. Having a good rapport with people in every department will make it easier for you to climb the ladder to success. Adopt a friendly, receptive attitude when people share their frustrations and concerns.

AQUARIUS 21 January – 19 February
Play it cool with a newfound admirer. You're not interested in a serious commitment right now. Be sure to make that clear to someone who keeps calling. Unfortunately, your friendly resistance may be like waving a red flag at a bull. If you're already in a relationship, plan a trip that has points of interest for you both. The two of you may have radically different ideas about what makes a great holiday. You can find a happy medium.

PISCES 20 February – 20 March
Writing in a diary can clarify your thinking. Designate a set time every day to make entries. That way, it won't be such a struggle to keep a continual log of your thoughts, dreams and desires. If you've ever wanted to write a book, this would be a good time to begin. You don't need great swaths of free time to craft a novel. Just writing a paragraph each day can be effective. Break the big task down into small, manageable steps.

ARIES 21 March – 20 April
You have a lot of work on your plate, so try to tackle it as quickly as possible. Make a list of everything that needs to be done and then divide the list so you can easily dispatch these errands without backtracking. You might want to call a few shops ahead to see what their hours of opening are. It may be necessary to make a few split second decisions about how a job should be performed. Trust your intuition and you won't go far wrong.

TAURUS 21 April – 21 May
Money could be going out just as quickly as it comes in. It really can't be helped. Making repairs to your home is essential. If you don't take care of these problems now, they will escalate into serious conditions that require expensive repairs. If you don't own your place, maybe it's time to buy. Take a tour of available properties in your desired neighbourhood. This will give you a good gauge for a reasonable budget. You may want to look further afield.

GEMINI 22 May – 21 June
You are in demand, but it might be difficult to choose which invitations to accept. Too bad you can't be in two places at once. Going on a short trip for pleasure may be the best solution. Nobody will be disappointed when you explain you can't attend their party because you'll be away. Visiting a nearby town that is famous for its beautiful sights and shops will be great fun. Go ahead and splurge on some luxuries that will enhance your natural good looks.
