ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

At last you are getting along with someone you have not always seen eye-to-eye with in the past. If they make an effort to be nice to you today you must make an effort to be nice to them in return. Despite your doubts, you can be friends.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

With Venus, your ruler, on good terms with energy planet Mars today you will find it easy to reach goals that in the past were beyond you. This is also a good time to plan a vacation. Where in the world would you most like to go?

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

No effort is too much for you now. There are some days when, no matter how tough the tasks you have to take care of, everything comes easy to you, and this is one of them. Identify what it is you wish to accomplish – then just do it.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

If you limit yourself to tried and tested ways over the next few days you will not only make unnecessary work for yourself but you may miss out on something that could have made your life richer and more enjoyable. Move with the times.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

It may seem as if certain matters are no longer under your control but if you think about it you will realize they never truly were. Nothing bad will come of having to follow rather than lead, so stop worrying and go with the flow.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

Put your natural charm to good use and get friends, family and work colleagues to move in directions that are beneficial to you. You don’t need to be rough or tough to get your way – never underestimate the gentle art of persuasion.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

Your most important task now is to identify what it is you want out of life. Once you have done that you can go all out to get it. Others will, of course, try to distract you but you won’t let it happen. You’re on a mission.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

All the petty upsets and restrictions of the past few weeks are beginning to fade and before you know it life will be fun again. This is one of the best times of the year for you, both socially and romantically, so make sure you enjoy it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

You may have an obsession with perfection but it would be wrong of you to expect everyone else to share it. If you take it too far you might tempt others to be obstructive, maybe even destructive, simply because they don’t like to be pushed.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

This is an excellent time for affairs of the heart as Venus, planet of love, links with Mars, planet of action. Even if you are the kind of Capricorn who is shy by nature you will be both chatty and charming today. You just can’t lose!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

Honesty is, of course, the best policy but it might be wise to bend the truth a bit now to spare a friend or loved one from unnecessary worry. Just this once, tell them what they want to hear. It’s unlikely to do any harm.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

You are feeling a lot more positive about life now the sun is moving in your favour, and with Mars and Venus also on your side today your self-belief is sky-high. What would you do if you knew you could not fail? So do it!
