AQUARIUS (21 Jan – 19 Feb)
Group activities where you can make an impact are important today – and your pioneering spirit can make all the difference. Listen to what others have to say as it will bring them on line – and improve your finances, too.  Style? Whatever you wear, you stand out.

PISCES (20 Feb – 20 Mar)
You may feel that everyone is unreliable and unwilling to assist. Forget them and get on with everything that needs to be done in your usual, caring way but with an added practical input. You could find you are achieving your dreams…

ARIES (21 Mar – 20 Apr)
Taking the initiative is second nature to you – and if no one else is prepared to take the risk, then you must get on with it by yourself. Don’t let anyone hold you back – you know exactly what you want so take control in your own highly creative way.

TAURUS (21 Apr – 21 May)
Domestic issues could be an issue that you need to sort out – just focus in your usual persistent, practical way. You enjoy entertaining so if you’ve invited friends over, your welcoming hospitality is bound to impress.

GEMINI (22 May – 22 Jun)
Don’t get tired by rushing around, helping everyone, listening and working out their problems. Sit back and think how best to use your energy so you don’t become stressed. A little detachment could help.

CANCER (23 Jun – 23 Jul)
Don’t take anything for granted today – go over contracts and negotiations to ensure you aren’t getting the raw edge of the deal. If you don’t understand something, ask. Activate your business brain – you can easily make your mark.

LEO (24 Jul – 23 Aug)
You could easily feel quite tense and stressed today – ready for a fight. Just remember you are ruled by the sun, the traditional giver of warmth, love and energy.  So don’t overreact as all you have to do is smile and compromise – for today. Rethink it all tomorrow.

VIRGO (24 Aug – 23 Sep)
Being practical, caring and strong makes you one of the world’s favourite people to have around in a crisis – but even you need to be comforted sometimes. Give up being too picky and let love happen. If not, there is always a bar of delicious black chocolate to fall back on.

LIBRA (24 Sep – 23 Oct)
There’s nothing soft about you today – in fact, you could be accused of being bossy and pushy so bring out your diplomacy skills and avoid destructive remarks if you want to be appreciated and get everyone’s co-operation. Be as organised as you can, too.

SCORPIO (24 Oct – 22 Nov)
Being honest and true to yourself is vital – but if you want to fix a problem today, you might want to add a little diplomacy to the mix along with your creative ideas. Then everything becomes possible – including romance, where silky clothes will help you feel sexily feminine.

SAGITTARIUS (23 Nov – 21 Dec)
Even if no one seems to appreciate just how much you always do for them, it doesn’t mean you should give up being your usual kind, helpful though brutally honest self. Keep an open mind – and don’t overreact or decide to move to another country just to ‘show them’.

CAPRICORN (22 Dec – 20 Jan)
Your finances could well need updating – look at investments, consult your adviser on the latest trends and see what needs to be upgraded or changed. Do the research yourself – there’s no one else who can do things better. Be passionate about everything you do, especially romance.
