Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
With analytical Mercury turning retrograde this week you may be tempted to abandon a money-making idea that suddenly does not seem so hot. But if you stand to lose out financially, it might be better to wait a few weeks to see if you can recoup any of your losses.


Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
You may be in a decisive mood now, but with Mercury retrograde in your sign from Tuesday, you would be wise to refrain from taking risks where the odds are against you.


Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
You may not feel like fighting for your rights this week, but if you don't, you will send the wrong message to your rivals and opponents. Act tough to show others you can't be intimidated.


Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
You may find it difficult to understand what friends are trying to tell you this week: you'll feel you're speaking different languages. Don't be bothered. The planets indicate that what friends are trying to say isn't worth your concern.


Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)
Success is coming but it may take longer than expected. With Mercury retrograde in the career area of your chart, you may have to wait several weeks for that breakthrough.


Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Because Aries is such an upfront sign, you do not always trust that inner voice. But when you've ignored that voice, you have tended to regret it, so let it guide you.


Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)
If you don't feel like doing much this week, by all means sit back and take it easy. With your easy-going ruler Venus focusing on work, there's no point pushing yourself too hard as you won't get much done.


Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)
The more you try to stop a colleague from doing something you don't approve of, the more they will delight in annoying you. With your ruler Mercury turning retrograde, your best bet is to feign indifference and hope they lose interest.


Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)
You may be bored with what you are doing, but the planets warn this is not the time to give up. Focus on something else but be ready to come back to it when your interest returns.


Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)
You're not usually the sort to have doubts, but with the planet of the mind, Mercury, turning retrograde, you may hesitate to do something which you'd usually give no thought to at all. Your indecision could work in your favour.


Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)
You seem to have overdone it recently and need time to recover from your exertions. Your head has become filled with so many competing ideas, there are times when you find it hard to think straight. Try not to think of anything for a while.


Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)
This is not the time to get caught up in petty disputes over nothing in particular, so try not to say anything critical.
