You are nearly back on track, so you can afford to be a little more open about your hopes and fears. Keep your plans flexible to allow for any delays or emergencies. Generally speaking, you should adopt a steady pace and keep a cool head.


Patience will be necessary when dealing with relatives or classmates. Try to get to the root cause of any deep-seated worries, because until you do, nothing will change. Your word skills will be tested when you are asked about a tricky subject. You don't have to say anything.


As cool headed and as shrewd as you are, do not assume that everyone is going to take your advice. The main thing is not to take any decisions without more information. Other events will follow in quick succession, so deal with one thing at a time.


One of your Aquarian claims to fame, is to suddenly do the opposite of what others expect. This does not always make you popular, but at least it is one way of testing your ideas. Now that Mercury has turned positive, you will have a head start, especially if you intend to take a different route and be seen where it matters.


Keep matters of the heart and head where they rightfully belong. There is every reason to share in some welcome sharing and caring, but money and romance do not always make the world go round. Whatever you decide, ensure that you do not leave anyone out.


Your flair for words could make the right impression on someone special. Even so, any problems brought to light should be handled discreetly. Mars and loyal Capricorn will offer you the chance to get together with like-minded people. There is a great deal waiting to happen.


Do not assume that you know all the answers, and you will not go far wrong. Problems with friends or a family member may require a subtle approach. However, you should not find it too hard to handle things if you are fair and show good humour. Let your intuition guide you.


There is a lot of talk going around about one thing or another, so keep everyone guessing. On the other hand, be sure to promote whatever is in your interests and the results will speak for themselves. Remember, charm is the key.


You may have to go out of your way to get what you want, but it will be worth it. There is no reason why you cannot have a great day. Feel balanced and in harmony. Broaden your social scene and impress new people with your talents.


You will have abundant energy and it will be important to get all your routines running smoothly. Your career, along with meeting those who could point you in the right direction, is powerfully highlighted, so concentrate on your goals.


You are in a stronger position to deal with difficult financial issues. Also, any conflicting ideas or misgivings about other people's attitudes should be kept in proportion. You will soon see the wisdom of mixing with people who care and can be trusted. There is magic in the air if you look for it.


The magical moon and your helpful ruler Mercury will open up all kinds of affectionate link ups. So whether you choose to do something creative or social, the effect will be the same - excitement and fun. In short, it is a superb time for getting your message across.
