LEO 24 July – 23 August
This isn't a good time to buy luxury goods. Things you purchase now could give way to buyer's remorse. Alternatively, some emergency expenses could suddenly occur, making you wish you had more disposable income available. Don't lend or borrow money, either. Adopting a frugal attitude is best. If you are yearning to be pampered, draw a bath and pour a drink. Pampering yourself doesn't have to be expensive. You might want to give yourself the ultimate gift: an afternoon nap.

VIRGO 24 August – 23 September
Don't fool yourself into thinking your job is done. You still have some obligations to fulfil to your business or romantic partner. Neglecting these duties will cause a serious rift. Check in with your compatriot before leaving for parts unknown. It's possible you forgot a promise to pick up supplies or run an errand. Good news from your boss makes you breathe a sigh of relief. For a while, you were worried they didn't like your performance on a particular job.

LIBRA 24 September – 23 October
If your amour isn't willing to go public with your relationship, it's time to move on. There's no reason you should stay hidden in the shadows. Do you already have a partner? Then be sure not to repeat personal information about them to others. Discretion is the better part of valour. A steady moneymaking opportunity is on the way. The pay may not be fantastic, but it will help you settle several outstanding bills. It will be a relief to get these obligations off your plate.

SCORPIO 24 October – 22 November
Friends are pressuring you to take a certain path, but you're simply not ready. Stop giving so much credence to their opinions and consult your own heart. Ultimately, you're the one who has to live with this decision. Your professional handling of a public relations problem will win the admiration of an important executive. You could be asked to take over a troubled department as a result. Go ahead and ask for a higher salary. You're in the driver's seat.

SAGITTARIUS 23 November – 21 December
There's more to doing a good job than looking good. Instead of spending tons of money on your wardrobe, improve your skills instead. If you've been out of work, you might have to undergo an image consultation. Toning down your style is important if you work in a highly traditional industry. Keep your employment options a secret. Discussing them in an open forum could prompt a rival to snatch away a promising offer. The job market is incredibly competitive now.

CAPRICORN 22 December – 20 January
Don't give someone too much power over your life. Even a doctor or lawyer who has a lot of impressive credentials can make mistakes. If you're not satisfied with their advice, get a second opinion. A well connected friend could put you in touch with a professional who has more experience with your particular problem. Go ahead and schedule an appointment. There's nothing wrong with exploring your options. Your first duty is to yourself. Remember this when you feel a twinge of guilt.

AQUARIUS 21 January – 19 February
Bending over backwards to accommodate a partner isn't working. Assert your own needs, even if it means having a fight. Just because you are capable and organised doesn't mean you should do the lion's share of the work. If your friend isn't willing to pick up the pace, you may decide to part ways. The chance to work for a powerful executive is on the horizon. Be sure to emphasise your ability to work independently, as your future boss doesn't want to have to micromanage their employees.

PISCES 20 February – 20 March
It's important to be forthright about what you need from a relationship. There is a chance the object of your affection isn't prepared to give what you want. If that's the case, you're better off going solo. Plunging yourself into a course of study can help dull the pain. You've been blessed with considerable raw talent. Polishing it to a diamond like brilliance will pay off. It may take a long time to achieve your ultimate goal, but the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

ARIES 21 March – 20 April
Avoid junk food like the plague. Take a supply of healthy snacks with you so you can resist temptation. Sugar and fat will deplete your energy. That could be disastrous on a busy day like this one. It's important to eat several small meals. Skipping breakfast will make you tired and cranky. To add insult to injury, an uncooperative colleague will wear on your nerves. Fortunately, a sensitive executive will keep you apart after you bring the problem to their attention.

TAURUS 21 April – 21 May
You may not feel very attractive because you don't fit some magazine ideal. As an Earth sign, you've been blessed with extremely sexy qualities that can be emphasised to the hilt. A velvet voice, a beautiful throat and voluptuous curves are just some of Nature's blessings to you. Each time you look in the mirror, recite some positive affirmations. Pay special attention to the way you dress, choose flattering colours and styles. Above all, stop wanting to look like someone who has an army of assistants.

GEMINI 22 May – 21 June
Your family has been shielding you from some unpleasant truths. While you are grateful for the chance to heal from a tremendous disappointment, it's time to face the facts. You might have to find another job or make amends for an embarrassing situation. The sooner you take ownership of this situation, the better. If you haven't been able to land a job, it may be because you lack essential training. Sign up for some classes and see where they lead.

CANCER 22 June – 23 July
It's important to be sincere. A friend may need a reality check, especially regarding a romantic matter. If someone you love is involved with a person who isn't worth their time, say so. This could put a temporary damper on your friendship, but it's better than ignoring the problem. There is also a chance someone will try to talk to you about an illicit affair. Don't be a party to this deception. Innocent people could be hurt and you don't want to be an accessory.
