You may feel self-conscious thanks to some painful memories from childhood. Take this opportunity to move past hurtful comments that were made at a vulnerable time. A sensitive person like you needs to find a healthy way to process these feelings. Writing in a notebook, talking to a therapist, or working on creative projects can be therapeutic. Give yourself credit for being a leader, nurturing friend and talented artist. People who poke fun of you are probably jealous of all these gifts.
LEO 24 July – 23 August
It's easy to feel isolated in your current environment. While everybody else wants to keep up appearances, you only want to say what you see. Unfortunately, the people around you resent your insistence on keeping things real. As a result, you will feel ostracised. Continue to offer your honest opinion when asked. That way, nobody can accuse you of being duplicitous. In time, you will find a place where your talent will be appreciated. Until then, maintain the status quo.
VIRGO 24 August – 23 September
Being a member of a group can be stifling. Your ideas aren't like anyone else's. At times, this has been your trump card. Right now, it feels like a liability. You're tired of being treated like an ugly duckling. Before you break away from this organisation, decide what's best for your long-term future. It might be better to wait and leave on good terms than leave in a huff. For all the frustration you have experienced, you have still made some valuable contacts. Keep these friendships intact.
LIBRA 24 September – 23 October
Opposing an authority figure will be a gigantic mistake. You're better off keeping a low profile. Sometimes, it's better to go along with a flawed organisation than to rock the boat. This may seem hypocritical, but it can't be helped. Very soon, the tide will turn and you will be able to leave for greener pastures. Until then, concentrate on doing the best job you can under trying circumstances. Thankfully, you've been blessed with tremendous diplomatic skills. Put them to work now.
SCORPIO 24 October – 22 November
Lately, it feels like your expertise is going to waste. Unfortunately, there aren't many opportunities to profit from your specialised knowledge. Don't let this get you down. Things will change. Right now, you have to focus on doing the best you have with what you've got. Making a gratitude list each morning can lift your spirits. When you focus on your blessings, they will multiply. The same is true if you concentrate on your disappointments. Keep insisting that the glass is half full.
SAGITTARIUS 23 November – 21 December
This isn't the best time to engage in a power struggle. It simply isn't possible to get everything you want at this time. Try to be as flexible as possible. You might have to contribute more money to a joint account or put yourself on a tight budget. This runs contrary to your devil may care outlook, but it is important to make a show of faith. Are you single? It may be because your expectations of love are too high. Adopt a more realistic outlook.
CAPRICORN 22 December – 20 January
It is difficult for you to reach an accord with your best friend, lover or business partner. You want to make some changes to your career path, but your friend doesn't share your enthusiasm for this transition. Don't make any hasty decisions. Postpone making any moves for the short-term future. Take some time to consult your own conscience about what will be best for both of you. Afterwards, you can talk things over with your partner in a civilised manner.
AQUARIUS 21 January – 19 February
Carrying out the same routine has become gruelling. Ordinarily, you enjoy having a set schedule, because it allows you to build castles in the air during your free time. Recently, it's been hard to be creative, because your regime has dulled your sensibilities. It may not be possible to venture into new territory right now, but that doesn't mean you will be stuck in this situation forever. Finish the remaining jobs on your schedule and then sign up for a class or take a trip.
PISCES 20 February – 20 March
You may not have a lot of time for fun and games. This is very frustrating, because you're already exhausted. Take this opportunity to slow down and reassess your priorities. Instead of increasing your workload, cut it back. That way, you will have more time to recharge your batteries at the end of the day. This isn't as glamorous as having fun in the sun with your friends, but it may be your only option. Conserve your energy.
ARIES 21 March – 20 April
A secure foundation could be shaken to the core. Try not to panic. This could be an opportunity to build something bigger and better. Gather your loved ones together. Their support will give you the courage to make a fresh start. You might decide to move to a different home or switch the division of labour with your partner. Whatever you choose, it will help you grow in exciting and unexpected ways. Kiss the past goodbye; great things are in store for you.
TAURUS 21 April – 21 May
It will be hard to keep track of all of your appointments. Resist the urge to fill your schedule to the breaking point. You need to be as flexible as possible to accommodate emergency situations. When setting deadlines, give yourself considerably more time than usual. Last minute delays will cause you to switch gears at the last minute. You might even have to throw out old work and start all over again. Don't let a needy neighbour or relative break your stride.
GEMINI 22 May – 21 June
The emotional void you feel can't be filled with a lot of expensive merchandise. Resist the urge to go on a shopping spree. Instead, make more time with your favourite people and activities. Someone who has been blessed with your intelligence needs plenty of mental stimulation. Taking a writing class might appeal to you right now. You'll feel a kinship with a writer who likes to create beautiful images with words. An attentive lover can also be a welcome diversion.
