LEO 24 July – 23 August
You're strongly charismatic and have a knack for striking a chord with everyone you meet. This quality enhances an intimate relationship. Being able to anticipate your amour's desires will lead to a passionate encounter. If you're single, you will have an opportunity to meet someone special. It's possible a relative will offer to set you up on a blind date. Don't be so quick to dismiss this proposition. Your family has good instincts about which kind of partner would suit you best.

VIRGO 24 August – 23 September
A creative partnership is flowing smoothly helping you develop a good idea into a great one. Having a collaborator encourages you to think outside of the box. As an Earth sign, you have a tendency to consider the more practical elements of a job. By putting these concerns on the back burner, you can strike upon a concept that is truly unique. Don't discourage someone younger for pursuing an unusual interest. Your young friend should be commended for having a hobby.

LIBRA 24 September – 23 October
Colleagues enjoy working with you because you don't care about petty procedures. As far as you're concerned, if a method works well, it should be implemented. People have all different ways of performing tasks. By forcing everyone to embrace the same techniques, they become dispirited and resentful. Of course, it's important to enforce safety standards. Beyond that, people should be allowed to do as they see fit. Don't be surprised if you're offered to manage a difficult team.

SCORPIO 24 October – 22 November
Exercising your imagination gives you a new lease on life. You've always had a knack for putting together unusual forms, colours and textures. If you play your cards right, you will be able to sell the fruit of your labour for a handsome profit. Becoming a respected artist will put you on a brand new path. At times, you might not like the scrutiny involved. For the most part you will enjoy your exalted status. It will give you some extra leverage in creative circles.

SAGITTARIUS 23 November – 21 December
Spending time with children can take the edge off your anxieties. Young people have a way of living in the moment that is extremely healthy. By taking a page from their book, you will move past some limiting thoughts. Trust your instincts regarding an older relative. Asking this family member's advice will improve your relationship. Everyone wants to feel needed and respected, regardless of their age. A moneymaking opportunity could greatly improve your financial prospects.

CAPRICORN 22 December – 20 January
You learn best by immersing yourself in a work environment. Following step by step instructions just proves confusing. You're better off aligning yourself with the most talented person in the organisation and following their lead. This could open the door to a lifelong friendship. You admire anyone who is able to rise to the top through sheer hard work and determination. Be willing to play the aggressor in an intimate relationship. Your partner may be too shy to express their desires.

AQUARIUS 21 January – 19 February
Sometimes you have to operate on faith in financial matters. Although you lack funds to put a plan into practice, that won't always be the case. Proceed as if there are no obstacles between you and your goal. Slowly but surely, the tide will turn in your favour. A scholarship will be granted or a benefactor will come forward. Nothing breeds success like a refusal to back down in the face of trouble. Pattern your behaviour after an executive who was able to beat the odds.

PISCES 20 February – 20 March
People have a way of letting down their defences with you. That's because you're very open and approachable. Don't be surprised if someone asks for your help with a serious problem. You may not realise it, but they've always looked up to you. By assisting them through a difficult transition, you'll give them the confidence to stand up for themselves. The chance to go on a business trip will arrive shortly. Make sure your passport is up to date.

ARIES 21 March – 20 April
Working in seclusion is the best arrangement now. If you do a good job with this assignment, your boss will give you bigger and better ones in the future. It may help to work from home, where you won't be interrupted by boisterous colleagues. If that's not an option, sneak off to some quiet spot where nobody else goes. Alternatively, you can post a big 'do not disturb' sign outside of your work area. Treat yourself to an evening of rest and relaxation.

TAURUS 21 April – 21 May
Contributing work or money to a charitable organisation is worth thinking about. You enjoy mixing with people who share your concerns. Don't be surprised if someone asks you to be a fundraiser. You have lots of valuable contacts in the community. By spreading the word you could raise enough money to purchase essential equipment. It feels great to be a force for positive change. Contrary to what the media would have you believe, there is a lot of goodwill in the world.

GEMINI 22 May – 21 June
Your boss could entrust you with a delicate matter. Being a sounding board for their personal problems requires tremendous discretion. Refrain from discussing these secrets with your other colleagues. It's important to maintain your reputation as a trustworthy employee. Big money could arrive from a job you performed some time ago. Take this opportunity to plan a trip to a country that has always captured your imagination. You will be inspired to launch a creative project as a result.

CANCER 22 June – 23 July
Undertaking a serious course of study will be spiritually uplifting. You're tired of being bogged down with petty chores. Delving into a subject that makes life meaningful is strongly advised. You may decide to pursue psychology, astrology, ecological preservation, or art restoration. An older instructor will admire your enthusiasm and may offer you a job as their assistant. This position will be really gratifying, as it will give you valuable professional experience.
