ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

You will be even more persuasive than usual over the next few days. Friends and rivals alike will be seduced by your way with words. Just make sure that you can deliver on any promises you make – better still, don’t make them at all.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

You need to have a heart-to-heart talk with someone who seems to be drifting away from you. Most likely there is nothing much wrong with your relationship but it could be they feel you are not paying them the attention they deserve.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

This is an excellent time for anything to do with communications, so if you have e-mails to send or instructions to issue get cracking. Also, if you have a message you want to give to the world now is the time to go public with it.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

Pay attention to the little things over the next few days. You may be superconfident at the moment but the planets warn you could easily overlook important facts and figures. Check, check and then check again, to be on the safe side.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

You will be in a talkative mood as the new week begins, but watch out you don’t give away too much information, especially about yourself. Knowledge is power and in the wrong hands can be dangerous. If you must talk, talk about other people.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

If someone you work or do business with tries to wriggle out of their obligations today you must come down on them hard. No matter what their sob story may be you know it’s a lie, so harden your heart and demand they get it done.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

You will discover something interesting about a friend today, the kind of thing not even you would have guessed! It may be tempting to tell everyone about it, but before you do think what the repercussions might be. Keep this secret to yourself.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

If someone you live or work with has not been pulling their weight then it’s time to let them know you demand better from them. If you don’t do it now they will take it as a sign that you are weak and will do as they please.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

You may not have any doubts about what you are doing but others are most likely not so confident. You will have to use all your considerable energy and enthusiasm to win them over today. Self-belief is the main ingredient of success.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

You may be angry with someone who has let you down but don’t criticize them in front of other people. If you do, you will do even more damage to their already fragile ego and they may never recover. Do you want that on your conscience?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

Your attitude may be a bit too aggressive as the new week begins. You may get away with it in the short-term but if you rub people the wrong way for no good reason they will undoubtedly hold a grudge. Calm down. Make friends, not enemies.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

You are under a lot of pressure at the moment but if you approach what you have to do in a lighthearted manner you will find you quite enjoy the challenge. You may also see a business opportunity that everyone else has missed.
