Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)
Your mind will be awash with brilliant ideas over the next few days. A part of your brain you don't normally use is connected to a wider and deeper form of consciousness. So, if you can think it, you can do it.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)
Instead of backing out of a commitment, try making it work in your favour. You are where you are for a reason and a bit of lateral thinking will help you to discover what that reason is.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)
You will do your best to make a friend feel good this week but your best may not be enough as they'll rather enjoy feeling gloomy. Better to leave them to it and spend your time with people who are more fun.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
A goal you thought was well within your grasp is not as clear cut as it seemed. Once you've overcome the difficulties, however, you will find you not only achieve it spectacularly but gain respect, too.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
A new twist is needed to resolve a problem that started as a bit of fun but now seems to occupy your every waking thought. The old ways are not always the best and it will pay to try a different approach.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
The facts of a situation are not in doubt. But if your instincts point you in one direction while everyone else seems to be focusing elsewhere, you can be certain it won't be you who has to look again.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
Your frustration at being ignored may have made you speak out recently but now you must accept that actions speak louder than words. If someone is determined to push you to the limit, simply ignore them.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)
There is nothing wrong with wanting fame and fortune, provided the quest for success teaches you something about yourself. There are many routes to self-discovery - find the one that is right for you.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
This week you'll find it difficult to get along with certain people. But don't feel bad about it because their recent behaviour suggests they do not deserve your friendship. It is up to them to win you over.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)
Don't be scared of your feelings, even if some of them are negative. The main thing to bear in mind this week is that you're only human and can't possibly love every person every minute of every day.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)
If you wake up with a good idea this week, you must make a note of it immediately. The cares of the day will soon take precedence and the image you had will quickly fade unless you make the effort to remember it.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)
It doesn't matter that a person of importance is demanding you conform to certain rules - if you see things differently then act differently. Part of the fun this week will be in doing what others say cannot be done.
