March 21 - April 19

Angry or hasty words linger around long after they are spoken. This week, think before you speak.

You have many opinions on what's happening around you, but now isn't the time to voice them. Stay low, keep calm and be a casual observer. You'll actually learn a lot about a situation by staying out of it this time around.


April 20 - May 20

It's high time for a heart-to-heart chat with someone close to you.

Perhaps something's bothering you, or you just feel that you haven't spent enough time with a special person.

Go with your gut instinct. Quality moments in the company of a friend you admire will do you the world of good, regardless of what subject you discuss.


May 21 - June 20

No matter how hard you try, it's impossible to please everybody all of the time - so stop trying.

You're a loyal person who wants the best for yourself and those around you. But try not to be upset if you can't solve all problems or make the world happy this week. Sometimes, just being a shoulder to lean on is all you have to be.


June 21 - July 22

Work, work, work! That's all you seem to do these days. But don't fret - a bit of 'chill' time is on the cards. Before you put your feet up, however, ask yourself: is there anything you haven't done that you should have done by now?

If so, be brave and tackle what needs to be tied up. Once you've finished things off, you can relax a bit.


July 23 - August 22

Never mind, lovely Leo - there are plenty of fish in the sea!

It's all about relationships this week and you might feel left out, unappreciated or just plain lonely for no reason at all.

Whatever's up, your self-esteem definitely needs a boost. So look in the mirror and say this repeatedly: I'm gorgeous and I'm worth it!


August 23 - September 22

You are in a very generous mood. Perhaps it has something to do with the moon or a new friend?

Whatever the reason, you'd do well to watch both your money and your mouth this week, no matter how happy you are with life right now. Spending too much or doing something rash in the heat of the moment can only backfire.


September 23 - October 22

Everybody seems to want a piece of you right now - and you're wondering why you're so popular.

The fact is, you are tuned into so much at the moment. That means you can give good advice or be a great listener.

People sense this in you so they seek you out. Just remember to take some time off for yourself.


October 23 - November 21

Imagine being on the holiday of your dreams. Whether it's in the sun or snow, nothing beats that feeling of relaxation, right?

If things get tough this week, close your eyes and picture that paradise. The art of visualisation is very powerful and will boost your mood. Believe in your ability to control your emotions - because you can.


November 22 - December 21

Everybody has an 'inner voice' that lets us know when something isn't quite right - or what decision to make.

Your life is full of opportunities so listen to that voice this week, because it's particularly powerful now. Try to follow your instincts when making an important decision. Chances are, you'll choose well.


December 22 - January 19

Health is your top priority this week so it's time to give your body a break and start taking care of it.

For most of the year, you have pushed yourself quite hard. That's fine, but even the strongest person needs some down-time.

Do some stretching, have an early night and drink plenty of water. You'll then feel like a new person.


January 20 - February 18

Your social life is set to become rather busy, depending on your mood this week.

People are flocking to you now, thanks to your naturally happy nature. Enjoy activities with friends and try to maintain your positive attitude. It's golden times such as these that give us the strength to deal with tough times ahead.


February 19 - March 20

You've worked really hard so it's no surprise that you're wondering where the rewards are. Though it's easier said than done, try to be patient. Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither was your life. It takes time to see the fruits of your labour. Once you've reached your goals, the sense of victory will really thrill you.
