LEO (July 24 – Aug 23)
You’re on top of the world, but the higher you rise, the further you fall – and the last thing you want to do now is throw away a wonderful opportunity. Your first priority should be your finances, and you’ll have a chance to make a series of profitable deals.
VIRGO (Aug 24 – Sept 23)
Good news if you’re a teacher or often need to motivate people at work – you’ll be able to persuade almost anyone of anything you want. Just don’t make rash promises – circumstances will change, and you may have to figure out how you can back out of one.
LIBRA (Sept 24 – Oct 23)
Although you’ll be impatient to get your way, you’ll spend time working out how to repeat your successes and make up for past failures. Old wounds will be healed and a relationship will be patched up. You may even befriend someone whom you thought you’d never see again.
SCORPIO (Oct 24 – Nov 22)
For the first half of the month, you’ll be honest with your deepest feelings, yet secretive about your actual plans. For the second half, you’ll be much more open about your actions but discreet when it comes to your romantic desires. On the whole, you’ll be more confident.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23 – Dec 22)
What makes you so successful is your ability to pursue anything with a ruthless attention to detail – even a potential seduction will be planned so that there is no chance of failure. Just don’t pressurise partners against their will, lest you provoke a backlash.
CAPRICORN (Dec 23 – Jan 20)
You’ll be craving love and attention, but support will arrive in the form of advice from strangers, rather than close friends. These casual encounters will help develop emotional bonds that may broaden your horizons. This could be the moment you take on fresh responsibilities, or even a new job.
AQUARIUS (Jan 21 – Feb 19)
Certain events may tempt you to pursue your dreams, but reality will eventually force you to put financial concerns first – there’s no point in having grand ambitions if you can’t pay for them. Relationship-wise, you’ll be ready to lay yourself on the line and take risks.
PISCES (Feb 20 – March 20)
A close emotional tie can only grow stronger, and an invitation brings the chance of a romantic encounter. You’ll be changing your mind at work, because partners are also doubting the wisdom of a particular commitment.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20) Y
ou’ve done brilliantly but it may be time to beat a tactical retreat so you have a chance to consolidate your achievements. Some of your closest relationships will be put to the test and if there are any ties you want to break, this is your moment. T
AURUS (April 21 – May 21)
Success is yours for the taking, and you’ll be taking risks that may take partners aback. You could throw yourself into a new relationship, and end up promising more than you can deliver – and then think better of it. Remember that you’re entitled to change your mind.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21)
Domestic routines and family pressures take priority this month. You’ll also prove yourself more than ready for whatever they throw at you, although you’ll soon decide that enough is enough. If people close to you continue to irritate, look elsewhere.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23)
A pay rise looks highly likely, and a deal could be clinched sooner than you think. Your romantic life, however, will become increasingly expensive because you’re operating under the illusion that you can buy happiness.
