There'll hardly be time to breathe this month, as you're wanted by everybody, and your skills and sociability are in great demand. This is a great time for positive energy and joy, so don't be shy about celebrating your talents and popularity.

A time for privacy and rest will come soon. Right now, you're the life and soul of the party!


April 20-May 20

The things that are most important to you will come into focus this week. You might find that your principles, opinions and morals are going to be tested. Although most communities generally follow the same rules and regulations, people do have their own opinions on certain matters - from politics to hairstyles. Be honest about who you are. Don't be bullied into letting go of your own truth.


May 21-June 20

Your relationship with another person is reaching an important level. It's time to decide if you really want to continue or let it go. Occasionally, a friendship reaches its 'sell-by date' - meaning that what brought you together is no longer important or necessary. That doesn't mean the friendship has to end. It may simply change. The wise attitude is to accept.


June 21-July 22

The stress is mounting, but you are more than capable of handling it. The question this week is: are you aware of how strong you are? Cancerians are emotional types who may lose a lot of energy by worrying about the future. Try to remain firmly rooted in the present, if you can.

Take things one step at a time and know that you are doing your best.


July 23-August 22

How healthy is your heart? Do you still have lots of resentment, jealousy or unresolved anger lingering there? This week, take a huge weight off your shoulders by consciously getting rid of negative thoughts.

Exercise is a great way to leave behind the bad baggage that is pulling you down. Go for a long, hard run and clear your mind.


August 23-September 22

It used to be said that we should never let the sun go down on an argument. What does this mean exactly? And why is it relevant to you? As a bit of a perfectionist, it bothers you when you don't feel in control of stuff - including emotions.

By dealing with issues as they come - rather than 'stewing' over them like an old bear with a sore tooth - you prevent the build-up of pointless stress.


September 23-October 22

Your mind is a little cloudy right now - much like a foggy day in winter. It's not a great feeling, but like the seasons, it won't last forever. Over the next few days, just do what you have to do and be patient. Things will seem a lot clearer when you least expect it, as long as you don't become over-anxious. Life is all about change and if you wait your turn, things will sort themselves out.


October 23-November 21

If it ain't broken, don't fix it - wise words for you this week, as you are in the mood to shake things up a bit. Perhaps you're bored or have the blues; but whatever it is, don't jump head first into something without thinking it through carefully.

You can't always take back what you've said or done. So why take the risk when perhaps there was nothing to sort out or change in the first place?


November 22-December 21

No news is good news - so do your best to stop looking for problems while you go about your business. We often have a niggling feeling that things are going to go wrong. Most of the time, they don't - and we end up worrying for nothing.

Try to channel that stress and anxiety into physical exercise and positive thinking. There is no point worrying about the future. It's not here yet.


December 22-January 19

There are a couple of bumps in your road this week, but nothing too serious or earth-shattering. In fact, you probably knew that you'd be dealing with a few issues as you made your plans, so you are prepared and ready to meet them head-on and with a smile on your face.

Have absolute faith in your ability to bounce back from troubles.


January 20-February 18

You are bending your mind like a piece of hot clay this week, twisting and turning things around until you're finally happy with the result. Every neuron of your brain is ready and firing, meaning that there is no excuse not to accomplish great deeds over the next few days.

Remember: tidying your room or surprising a friend with a bunch of flowers are also great deeds!


February 19-March 20

Variety is the spice of life - imagine if we just did the same old thing, week in and week out, without ever having the courage to change our routine. You now have the chance to do something completely different. What is it to be?

Perhaps you'll consider studying to become a dentist instead of a doctor; or maybe you're going to take to the stage, rather than the science lab.
