CANCER 22 June – 23 July
Embarking on a spiritual journey could be fulfilling. You might have a chance to travel to an exotic land, get an advanced degree or publish a piece of written work. This experience will cause you to turn inward and question your priorities. You're no longer intent on staying close to home. Travelling the world and meeting new people will give an attractive glow. You've been blessed with so many gifts. It's time to share them with as many people as possible.

LEO 24 July – 23 August
An intimate encounter looks likely. If you have a partner, sneak off to some private hideaway together. Blocking out annoying distractions helps you to focus on each other's desires. Be ready to act out a fantasy or expand your lovemaking repertoire. Are you single? You could meet someone special in an unexpected setting. You're especially drawn to creative types who aren't hung up on status symbols. Money can't buy you love.

VIRGO 24 August – 23 September
You feel a strong link with a spiritual person. As an Earth sign, you tend to focus on practical matters. Being with someone who reminds you that life's other dimensions can be liberating. You enjoy discussing subjects like art, nature and faith with your partner. Don't be surprised if they inspire you to pursue a childhood goal. It's never too late to resuscitate a dream. Stop making excuses involving money, status and responsibility. If you want something bad enough, you can make time for its pursuit.

LIBRA 24 September – 23 October
You will be given a plum work assignment. Getting paid to exercise your creativity feels like an answer to a prayer. If you do a good job with this project, you will be given a raise, promotion or both. Take this opportunity to build an impressive portfolio that can be used to get freelance work. By making a name for yourself in your desired industry, you could become a free agent. Although you work well with all different kinds of people, you would like to choose your clients.

SCORPIO 24 October – 22 November
A romantic encounter will make you feel like you're walking on air. You're not only physically attracted to the object of your affection, but you feel an intellectual connection as well. It's like having the best of both worlds. Are you looking for love? You could find it at an educational, religious or cultural organisation. The attraction will be instant and powerful. That suits your intense personality. Casual flings aren't your style; you're looking for a profound commitment that lasts a lifetime.

SAGITTARIUS 23 November – 21 December
Creating a home that doubles as a spiritual retreat is favoured. If you want to move, you could get a generous bank loan. Be sure to put in an application now, while the stars are beaming strong financial support to you. Finding a quiet property by the water will calm your fiery energy. That's actually a good thing. Too often, you become so wrapped up in your social life that you forget to rest, relax and rejuvenate. Having a tranquil haven will improve your mental and physical well-being.

CAPRICORN 22 December – 20 January
Writing music, poetry or prose is a welcome challenge. You're a lot more creative than you pretend. Finding an outlet for your imagination is important. While you're great at solving problems and organising groups, you also have the potential to create inspiring works of beauty. Your artwork will attract lots of romantic attention. You're feeling some definite sparks between you and a warm-hearted nurturer. The two of you could make a great couple.

AQUARIUS 21 January – 19 February
Spend as much time as you can on the people and activities you love. You're tired of thinking in terms of what is practical. Following your heart will be much more satisfying. If you're thinking of launching a side business, now is the time to try. You can attract several lucrative customers who appreciate your unique gifts. Working for them will encourage you to further develop your talent. Being your own boss really appeals to your independent nature.

PISCES 20 February – 20 March
This is a great time to show off your creative talent. It's sometimes difficult for a modest person like you to promote your gifts. Don't make that mistake now, when a powerful person has the ability to make you a star. You may not long for fame and acclaim like so many others, but you will enjoy being appreciated for your work. You may be getting ready to go on a relaxing holiday. Add a few fashionable items to your wardrobe, as you'll want to look your best.

ARIES 21 March – 20 April
You have a delightful opportunity to develop a creative project in the privacy of your home. Don't show this effort to anyone until it is complete. That way, you won't run the risk of a hard-hearted critic derailing your masterpiece. Trust your instincts. They will help you craft something of unimaginable beauty. If you've ever wanted to make furniture, pottery or stained glass, this would be a great time to begin. Working with tools ignites your imagination. Roll up your sleeves.

TAURUS 21 April – 21 May
You'll get lots of encouragement from a group of artists. As someone ruled by the planet Venus, you have the ability to make things of profound beauty. Take this opportunity to polish your raw talent into a sparkling diamond. Your hard work will pay off in the form of a rave review. One member of your club may know an influential agent, manager or publisher. This could be your chance to make a respected name for yourself in the creative field.

GEMINI 22 May – 21 June
Finding your dream career is a distinct possibility. Not only will you land a job that appeals to your spiritual side, but you can also negotiate a terrific salary. Use your gift of the gab to get on a higher pay scale than the one you are initially offered. If you play your cards right, you could also get a few nice perks thrown in, like a free gym membership or company car. If you're miserable with your current job, take a leap of faith. You won't regret it.
