24 SEPTEMBER - 23 OCTOBER
It’s a pity that you’ve felt tongue-tied when others have asked for your views on tricky issues. Mercury entering your sign early in October will help you become more analytical and articulate than usual. Just don’t assume this gives you the right to meddle with people’s private affairs if you’ve not been invited to do so.
24 OCTOBER – 22 NOVEMBER
Rise above cheap jibes uttered by those who, for some reason, have envied you for quite a while. Distract yourself from whatever is going on by concentrating on financial or domestic situations that you should have tidied up weeks ago. This is the wrong time to waste energy on futile arguments or petty politics.
23 NOVEMBER – 21 DECEMBER
Admirable though it might be to pamper friends or loved ones, you owe it to yourself to keep an eye on the finances. You might even have overlooked debts you ran up a while ago and they need to be settled before you incur any more. Your reputation is far too precious to damage unnecessarily.
22 DECEMBER – 20 JANUARY
Initially, a decision will seem impossible to make, but you’ll achieve clarity on this situation early in the month. Don’t be dissuaded from going with your sixth sense by people who have a vested interested in whatever you choose to do. Only you have a sufficiently objective view to do what’s best for all concerned.
21 JANUARY – 19 FEBRUARY
Professional or money-related matters will have to be made a main priority. But first, you’ll want the time and space to spend on a journey or venture that should broaden your horizons. Just make sure not to renege on a promise made to someone who has been expecting your undivided attention for quite long enough.
20 FEBRUARY – 20 MARCH
Financial concerns may flare up. And although that’s not unusual, on this occasion you’ll crave a permanent solution to a situation that has been ongoing for too long. Be receptive to a flash of inspiration occurring to you around mid-October. You should amaze everybody with your flair and ingenuity.
21 MARCH – 20 APRIL
Avoid getting involved with worldly matters if, as is likely, somebody special needs your support. You probably O have been skirting around an intensely personal matter which has become a bone of contention. Make yourself available and show that you do know how to be empathetic and selfless when it really is required of you.
21 APRIL – 21 MAY
As you give in to an instinct telling you to be more directive–perhaps even bossy–towards certain people, you must avoid causing a permanent rift. A Sun-Pluto clash on 7 October is no excuse to lay down the law so heavily that nobody is allowed a different point of view. Tap into your soft skills.
22 MAY – 21 JUNE
Even though a treat or special trip could be costly, you mustn’t let others decide whether or not you can afford it. You seem to have irritated certain people by being somewhat selfindulgent recently. But provided it’s your money you’re spending–and not theirs–you must insist on your right to do whatever you want.
22 JUNE – 23 JULY
Family members may express strong views on your handling of a professional or financial situation. But you must do what feels right, especially if you’re able to prove you know the true value of operating in a particular way. Once you’ve gained the trust of one or two key individuals, the problem should be over.
24 JULY – 23 AUGUST
You may need to call certain unreliable people to account. If possible, wait until 19 October when a Mars-Pluto link will produce previously hidden facts and figures that will prove your point. This should help you find the conviction to say what should have been said quite some while ago.
24 AUGUST – 23 SEPTEMBER
People will be on the move, but you should stay with what is known and familiar to you, until at least the end of the month. Refuse to let one particular person’s restlessness lure you away from a set-up that’s slowly coming to fruition. Impatience could be your undoing and the cost will be high.
