Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)
You will clash with someone in a position of authority. It is important you stand your ground and refuse to be intimidated but be ready to meet them halfway if they suggest a fair compromise.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)
If you reveal too much about yourself you may give rivals the ammunition they need to shoot you down. Unless there’s a good reason to confide in those you live or work with, you must keep your thoughts to yourself.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)
You’ll have to be strong this week, especially with people who think they have a hold over you. Help friends and colleagues if they get into difficulties but make it plain it won’t be a regular thing.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)
Which is most important to you: family or work? The planets warn you have to find a more stable balance between your home life and ambitions. Now is the time to decide what your priority is.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
Back off a little, especially at work, where if you come on too strong you’re likely to put colleagues off. It’s good you’re passionate about what you do but others may not view it with the same level of interest.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
Something that happens this week will prove that some of the decisions you’ve taken recently have been silly. There may be a price to pay but view it as money well spent if you’ve learned your lesson.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
You’ll be confronted with something that will make you wish you were somewhere else. However, Pluto in your sign gives you the courage and ability to deal with the situation.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
You try to live up to your responsibilities but there are times when it all gets a bit much and such a time is now. If your energy nose-dives this week you must stop and take a break.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)
You’ll keep feeling something bad is about to happen this week. Hopefully nothing will but you can make things safer for yourself by promising that you’ll walk away, no matter how great the provocation.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20) You may be tempted to handle a relationship problem or domestic issue in an aggressive way but if you upset partners or loved ones it will make the situation 50 times worse. Stay calm.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)
You may have fallen behind and be frantic to make up lost ground but this isn’t the time to do things from desperation. If you take risks you’ll regret it. Slow down. Be patient. Your situation isn’t as bad as it looks.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)
Resist the urge to point out others’ faults as they will hold it against you, which could cause problems later. Don’t do anything underhand where money is concerned, as deceit could cost you dearly.
