Pink gold, mother-of-pearl and diamond Sweet Alhambra bracelet watch, $30,800, Van Cleef & Arpels.
24 OCTOBER – 22 NOVEMBER
Don’t let anyone dissuade you from pursuing something that will satisfy a deep need. You’ve been waiting to make it happen for long enough. So stand your ground even when outspoken cynics insist that your judgement is askew. Remember: You know yourself far better than anybody else does.
23 NOVEMBER – 21 DECEMBER
When a handful of people make similar comments about your career or ﬁnances, you should listen carefully. They’re likely to be extremely well informed in areas linked to your long-term future. You won’t, of course, take everything they say on trust, but they’ll introduce you to concepts that really could work in your favour.
22 DECEMBER – 20 JANUARY
Try to let certain individuals know more about you and your life without coming across as ridiculously self-important. And try not to deﬂect questions that they think are perfectly normal but you regard as being far too invasive. If, as is likely, you have nothing to hide, this could be your chance to invite others into your private world.
21 JANUARY – 19 FEBRUARY
It’s time to weigh up whether or not to be more adventurous and less compliant than usual. But avoid letting Saturn’s tussles with Mercury and Venus cause you to err on the overcautious side. You could be doing more and moving around quite freely while still practising common sense and self-care. Near-paranoia can be extremely disruptive.
20 FEBRUARY – 20 MARCH
Group activities or joint ventures will beckon. But save some of your energy and enthusiasm for developments that are likely to impact your reputation. Is there any need to feel intimidated by all of this? No. But you’ll be ﬁring on all cylinders occasionally, so you can’t afford to waste energy on day-to-day trivia.
21 MARCH – 20 APRIL
No one could blame you for wondering why you and somebody close haven’t been seeing eye to eye lately. However, rather than overanalyse every little clash, why not put it all behind you? Planetary shifts in your chart in the coming weeks suggest that a breakdown in communications should soon be over.
21 APRIL – 21 MAY
Tough messages may have to be delivered to unsuspecting individuals. Make sure you’re sufficiently well briefed to be able to answer awkward questions. Also, let it be known that you will do anything and everything possible to support those who are thrown by what they learn.
22 MAY – 21 JUNE
Seemingly negative comments regarding a romance or creative interest might have dented your ego. It’s only now, as Mercury’s retrograde phase ends, that you’ll accept that you need to grow a thicker skin. Surely, you should be able to take a little criticism every now and then?
22 JUNE – 23 JULY
Developments within the home have been complex. Any day now, you’ll ﬁnd that you have the power of persuasion to convince loved ones that you’re all sailing into calmer waters together. There will still be disagreements, but it will seem like everybody’s on the same side once more.
24 JULY – 23 AUGUST
Routine responsibilities may have been unusually difficult to handle recently. But when Jupiter allies itself to Pluto on 12 November, it’ll provide more power to your elbow. Although you don’t want to be perceived as being overzealous, you’ll enjoy the feeling that everything is shipshape once more.
24 AUGUST – 23 SEPTEMBER
Not every aspect of your ﬁnancial affairs has performed perfectly of late. Quite unexpectedly, you should soon hear talk of a breakthrough in terms of an investment, a contract or certain possessions. And it will sound promising. Even so, you can’t afford to take a risk just because someone is accusing you of being hypervigilant. Ignore it.
24 SEPTEMBER – 23 OCTOBER
Just as you’re wondering whether you’re too ambitious, somebody will suggest ways of achieving what you want without too much effort. Take care because you could be under the inﬂuence of the Sun’s tie-up with Neptune, generating ideas too good to be true. Here, pragmatism will work.
