Find the capacity to mourn the loss of something that’s come to an end, then move on. You may be inclined to become over-sentimental and possibly sulky when in fact you need to let others see you at your most adult and philosophical. It might not be easy at first but it can, and must, be done.
CAPRICORN 22 DECEMBER – 20 JANUARY.
Your instincts will tell you how to handle a family or domestic drama. Uranus, allied to Saturn but challenging Jupiter, might make you think the current situation is too much to handle. It’s not. But you’ll need some ingenious tactics to help you outwit those who want everything their own way.
AQUARIUS 21 JANUARY – 19 FEBRUARY.
By being loving and caring towards a difficult individual, you’ll strengthen the bond between you. Yes, it will require patience on your part but the only other option is to become much tougher and that will lead to a rift. Don’t worry about being taken for granted. Deal with that if, and when, it happens.
PISCES 20 FEBRUARY – 20 MARCH.
Enjoy using a sudden burst of energy to boost your private life and remind others how entertaining you can be. Quite unfairly, you seem to have been labelled as being rather serious and sober recently. Do you really want to miss out on all the fun and get-togethers that people around you are enjoying? No.
ARIES 21 MARCH – 20 APRIL.
Try not to feel bullied by those insisting you take an aggressive approach to work or financial negotiations. From 19 December, when Mercury is in retrograde for three weeks, you’ll want to be sure of your ground when striving to get the best possible deal from an extremely complicated set-up. You’re right in taking no chances.
TAURUS 21 APRIL – 21 MAY.
Some around you may think that an offer being made to you is fairly derisory. But you’ll see the long-term benefits involved and recognise it as a worthwhile investment. Don’t try to talk anyone round to your way of thinking. Wait until they can see for themselves that you’re the one who knows what’s what.
GEMINI 22 MAY – 21 JUNE.
People urging you to be totally hands-on within an area that means little to you will irritate you enormously. But if you can find an incentive to do as they suggest you’ll come out of it very well. There’s much to learn from those who feel you’re not capitalising on something that’s within your grasp.
CANCER 22 JUNE – 23 JULY.
No matter how keen you are to bring a laborious task to completion, you won’t want it to seep into your private life. Make the most of a Sun-Saturn connection urging you to have more boundaries than ever before. People may assume that you’re happy to work day and night but they’re wrong, aren’t they?
LEO 24 JULY – 23 AUGUST.
Others may consider a joint project to be a long shot. But you’ll feel quite differently. You’ll realise that unless you can fire them up with some of your own enthusiasm, you could all lose out. If you let their pessimism dampen your spirits, you’ll risk sacrificing an opportunity that might never come around again.
VIRGO 24 AUGUST – 23 SEPTEMBER.
Keep mix-ups and misunderstandings with someone close in their true perspective. It will be tempting to allow them to take on a significance they don’t truly warrant. But surely you know by now that cutting remarks made in haste usually have little foundation to them. It’s now time to engender an adult attitude all round.
LIBRA 24 SEPTEMBER – 23 OCTOBER.
The realisation that a friend or colleague has been economical with the truth may disappoint you. But that’s no reason to mistrust everybody else close by. Be especially attentive to loved ones who want to talk about ambitious plans designed to enhance your lives together. You can afford to be more committed than you think.
SCORPIO 24 OCTOBER – 22 NOVEMBER.
A loved one complaining that the relationship between you is growing dull needs you to become more dynamic. Make use of Mars invigorating the most scintillating section of your chart as a reminder to not succumb to apathy. If, as is likely, you’ve forgotten how to play the romantic lead, you had better start remembering. Fast.
