Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

There are two sides to an argument. A friend’s anger or jealousy is warping their judgement. You cannot take their words seriously when they refuse to see a situation objectively even after you have tried to explain it from another’s point of view. Things are changing in a current relationship.

Taurus (Apr 21 – May 21)

It is no bad thing to be able to enjoy life even while you are working. Take on jobs and activities that will allow you to put creative thought into what you do. Social events now being planned will give you a chance to display your creative side.

Gemini (May 22 – June 21)

A partner or close friend looks to you to keep them occupied and entertained. You’re tired of having to think for them. You cannot be held responsible for other people’s happiness and you may need to remind yourself of this a few times today.

Cancer (June 22 – July 23)

A partner or housemate has expensive tastes. They are also very good at persuading other people to go along with their expensive suggestions. When money is tight it should be a priority now to make certain that it is their money they are spending and not yours.

Leo (July 24 – Aug 23)

If romance has lost its sparkle arrange to get away from it all with your partner. If you haven’t been spending much quality time together and you feel there is something missing in your relationship the solution is to make some space in your life for each other.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sept 23)

Spending time with your one and only brings you a feeling of happiness and upliftment. Harmony prevails at home. If you are single and looking for love, why try to fight it if a friendship is turning into something more romantic? This could be the relationship you have been dreaming of.

Libra (Sept 24 – Oct 23)

An offer put to you by your boss or a senior official will be surprising yet meaningful. Accepting this proposition could change your life in a good way. You might be giving up more of your time to work and other commitments but this is because you want to. Friends wonder when they are going to get to see you.

Scorpio (Oct 24 – Nov 22)

You’re so tuned in to other people’s thoughts and feelings that your friends, family and workmates are going to find it hard to hide anything from you. You can sense someone is keeping something secret from you and you feel too that because of this you cannot wholly trust them. Trust your intuition.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 – Dec 21)

You’re doing far too much and if you keep this up, it will exhaust you. How can you keep your family, friends and partner happy when you have so many obligations? If you are half of a duo, your partner is justified in complaining about you not seeing enough of each other.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 20)

It will take a while to get over your surprise after hearing what someone in the family has to tell you. Change is in the air. Relationships will feel brighter and you will be more optimistic because of this. Planning a future trip or romantic holiday will add a little spice to a romantic relationship.

Aquarius (Jan 21 – Feb 19)

A heavy workload will mean missing out on romantic and social pleasures but does it always have to be this way? Start thinking of how you can delegate some of your responsibilities. As important as these may be, it’s also important to relax and have fun with friends.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)

Your ability to turn fantasy into reality will make it feel like you are living in a dream. There’s a playful feel to friendship activities and this puts you in touch with your inner child. It will be good to fool around and be like a kid again. Life doesn’t have to be all work and no play.
