VIRGOAugust 23 to September 22
Deep cosmic waves shake the foundations of your life and open up your future to previously unseen possibilities. The most obvious comes from the prominence you’re likely to achieve. This year is a time of power – sexual, emotional and professional. While Jupiter settles in your career sector, the next 12 months provide plenty of action, with only the occasional setback. The months ahead bring opportunities for you to showcase your brilliance. Additional responsibilities may be required of you, but nothing you can’t handle. Your success should do more than just boost financial prospects. When carnal desires demand attention, ease up on the workload and let the love flow. Some Virgos may yield to illicit temptations, while others prefer to live less dangerously – but no less romantically. Also likely: financial gains from inheritance, tax or insurance.
LIBRASeptember 23 to October 22
Money and resources remain niggling needs, but there’s nothing like feeling the pinch to prompt your ingenuity, and new ideas will help stem cash-tastrophes. The downside? This excessive focus on finances may rob romance of its enchantment. But you are compensated through work, where even small efforts hold the promise of excellent results. You might also consider new studies or travel.
SCORPIOOctober 23 to November 21
Action-packed Mars fires up your house of self, so expect to be pushed to your limit. Energy is heightened and you accomplish a lot, especially if you work alone. You’re not being belligerent – just not in the mood to compromise. Carnal cravings run high, however, it’s easy to become irritated with less-spirited individuals. Impulsive behaviour can also make you accident-prone.
SAGITTARIUSNovember 22 to December 21
This month offers you a course in practicality, yet the realisation that your wings have been clipped could prove frustrating. But once disbelief relaxes into a sigh of acceptance, patience is yours to discover. You may also have to deal with those who feel they know more than you. Luckily, you now have planetary approval to show them the door.
CAPRICORNDecember 22 to January 19
This is a jewel of a month for determined Capricorns. You’re a bit of a control freak and you’ll be in your element when put in charge and facing demanding deadlines. Would you have it any other way? Maybe. A little romance would ease the pressure. Look to sexy Venus, who offers recreation in the bedroom. Yet discretion is key if you choose an illicit path.
AQUARIUSJanuary 20 to February 18
You are a versatile soul, but when overloaded, you soon reach burnout. Most of your stress is self-imposed, so don’t be too proud to ask for help. The planets promise more fun after the 24th, but watch your pennies, as the sun seems intent on causing monetary mischief. Relationships benefit from an honest heart-to-heart, especially if tetchiness has crept into the equation.
PISCESFebruary 19 to March 20
September emphasises your highly strung Piscean sensitivity. It’s a month when you will feel, feel and feel – although you may choose to hide the depth of these emotions. At the best of times, you can’t stand conflict, so September’s challenges may feel excruciating. Hardly surprising, then, if you withdraw into your own safe inner world. Good tactic.
ARIESMarch 21 to April 20
Sometimes the best form of defence is attack. Even so, you could be opting for overkill this month. Sure, remain assertive if others are out to undermine you, but what they’re suggesting can’t be all wrong. Compromise is key. Solitude, meditation, reflection: these are things that would benefit you most. Your talents haven’t been forgotten – plans for your moment of glory are underway.
TAURUSApril 21 to May 20
Expect a sexy September, which promises more than the occasional flirtation. Someone could even be special to the point of keeping. Singles unshackle their wildest fantasies, and couples kiss complacency goodbye. Your bank balance also looks set to be replenished, and real estate catches your attention. Look forward to a memorable month ahead.
GEMINIMay 21 to June 21
OK, you’ve lingered on a decision long enough – now, it’s time for action. There’s no arguing that it pays to be prepared, and that practice makes perfect, but the big question is: are you ready to give it a try? You’ll only know by taking that proverbial leap of faith. If tensions do exist, they seem more to do with family or children. In love matters, the 16th’s new moon opens up sexy possibilities.
CANCERJune 22 to July 22
If anyone’s capable of talking themselves into profit this month, it’s you. And, during a time when finances take priority, you’ll rely on the gift of the gab. Just keep an eye out for unexpected expenses. Mars swivels his hips in your love sector, pretty much ensuring rumpled sheets. What does it matter if it’s love or lust? This month affords you the courage to be yourself, with little apology.
LEOJuly 23 to August 22
Money becomes more abundant, although there’s a temptation to spend up. But what’s life for, if not to enjoy? You’ll sense a growing social camaraderie and want to be a part of it. Nothing feels impossible or out of reach now. Blessed with more confidence, you can turn most situations to your advantage. Love could tag alongside career pursuits.
