21 MARCH – 20 APRIL
Having been uncertain about joining forces with certain people, you may wonder why you’re suddenly drawn to them. Go with your instinct telling you there’s much less to be gained from operating single-handedly. Look forward to a shared experience you’ll never forget.
21 APRIL – 21 MAY
Misgivings concerning your abilities should soon fade. And with Mercury no longer retrograde from 10 March, any negative comments should leave you unfazed. Don’t take for granted the support being offered by one person who is likely to be over-promising and not as reliable as you first think.
22 MAY – 21 JUNE
Rather than speak out regarding a sensitive issue, you sometimes keep your opinions to yourself. You’re about to be confronted with an ethical dilemma that cannot be swept under the carpet though. Tell yourself you are quite capable of delivering some tough messages to those concerned without being labelled a traitor or troublemaker.
22 JUNE – 23 JULY
As you enthuse about an inspired idea, remember that not everyone will be as keen on it as you are. You are about to feel the impact of a Sun-Neptune connection urging you to invest in fairly far-fetched schemes about which you know very little. While it’s fine to be adventurous, you mustn’t confuse fantasy with reality.
24 AUGUST – 23 SEPTEMBER
Too often, you’ve promised yourself you would get to grips with a chore you find uninspiring. Fairly soon, however, circumstances will force you to make a start, especially with Saturn entering a dutiful section of your chart. The speed and efficiency with which you’re able to function will surprise you, as will the eventual rewards.
24 JULY – 23 AUGUST
It may be hard to decide how much effort to put into a particular interest or area of work. So your best bet is to be guided by a sixth sense spelling out all the likely options involved. Even more important, however, will be the part you need to play in a scenario involving somebody very close.
21 JANUARY – 19 FEBRUARY
In a bid to show yourself off as worldly-wise, you might be tempted to adopt a false front. However, one or two acquaintances whose views really matter to you will tap into the lack of authenticity in what you’re doing. Better to accept your shortcomings within the territory concerned while remaining completely true to yourself.
24 SEPTEMBER – 23 OCTOBER
Someone suggesting you’ve been rather self-indulgent recently may be talking sense. But this doesn’t mean you need to become so much of a martyr that you end up resenting it. Pay attention to certain individuals who might be feeling overlooked recently. You and they could benefit, simply by being together.
24 OCTOBER – 22 NOVEMBER
Creative ideas bordering on the outlandish might not appeal to loved ones. So be prepared to come up with suggestions likely to be seen as practicable as well as inventive. You’ll also need to prove to those with whom you share your life that a major rethink on the home or family front is overdue.
23 NOVEMBER – 21 DECEMBER
Restrictions on your spending or freedom to invest in the unconventional are slowly being lifted. Even so, you mustn’t assume you can run wild and free. You’ll soon be reminded that in some areas of your life, you still need to show yourself off as somebody who knows the value of hard work and commitment.
22 DECEMBER – 20 JANUARY
Feeling that you’re being pulled in several different directions at once could prove exhausting. So when an opportunity to escape suddenly appears, seize it with both hands. You don’t have to go very far or stay away for very long. At some point, you’ll need a change of scene and tempo to rebalance your life.
