Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
You should be looking both forwards and back – by applying the lessons of the past you can build a better future. Don’t dwell too deeply on your mistakes, however, or you could make yourself depressed.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
You will be in a determined mood this week and anyone who thinks they are tough enough to take you on will soon learn the error of their ways. You’ll know what you want and you will get it.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
All things are possible for those who take chances. With that in mind you might be persuaded to take a chance on something you’d normally consider too risky. You might make a lot of money.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
It seems that in one area of your life you are being too ambitious for your own good. There are many things you can do now but there’s one thing you cannot do. Identify it and put it out of your mind for good.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)
You may take risks this week for the fun of it, not caring if you win or lose. You should win most of the time and, on the rare occasions when you lose, someone should be there to catch you when you fall.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
You could make serious money this week, but to do so you will have to play by others’ rules, which could be difficult if you don’t agree with them. What do you value more – material wealth or personal integrity?

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)
Stop feeling sorry for yourself and start looking at ways to make your life more exciting and fulfilling. The lower you feel the more likely it is that you will fight back and do something remarkable.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)
This is a tricky time of year, when you’re inclined to worry about your work and health. But it is also a positive time as it can push you into making changes that will make things easier for you in the future.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)
Don’t try to convert people to your viewpoint as that is likely to force them in the opposite direction. All you can do is live by your own code of honour and hope others are inspired by your example.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)
If you start something this week, expect it to take a lot more time and energy than you’d like. That is good, as you’ll have less time and energy to waste. Be serious about how you use your resources.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)
This could be a frustrating week as one or more of your plans hits an unexpected snag. There is no point getting angry. Just retrace your steps, work out what you did wrong and put it right for next time.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)
Life is too short to worry about what other people think of you, so do what you want. Nine times out of 10 you do everything by the book, so you are entitled to do things differently once in a while.
