Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)
You're not in one of your more practical moods just now. For that reason alone you're advised to wait a few days if embarking on anything new. You'll soon realise that there is a better alternative.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)
Keep telling yourself what's happening in your life is all part of the grand cosmic plan. But don't use it as an excuse to ignore your obligations or hide behind the notion there is no such thing as free will.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
You look up to someone influential but don't think they can do no wrong. Your respect for that individual is based on emotion rather than logic. Take off the blinkers and see them for what they really are.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
Start something new this week, something you have been considering for ages but never got around to. If you want it to succeed, involve those closest to you. Their insights could make all the difference.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
This is not the time to come up with any fancy ideas or theories. Focus on practical matters only, especially those related to your work or career. Save your dreams for when you are asleep.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
This should be a terrific week for you. You will be flavour of the month with just about everyone. But don't get obsessive about someone unattainable. And don't take risks with money.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)
If you have told someone in no uncertain terms to keep their nose out of your affairs you must expect a somewhat strained atmosphere in your dealings with them. No matter, the problem is theirs, not yours.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
There's no point warning you not to go overboard this week when your ruler Mars is so passionately linked to Venus in the most romantic area of your chart. Try not to start anything you can't finish.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)
Some dreams will never come true. It may be fun to fantasise but it can also be a distraction. You've let a certain dream go too far. Now it is time to get back to the real world - it's not as bad as you think.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)
Don't move too fast. See how others behave before deciding what to do next. What you see is unlikely to be what you get, so wait until later in the week before starting something new or ending something old.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)
You don't need money to be happy - you just need peace of mind. The best way to get that is to stop worrying about how much you own or earn. Focus on the things that really matter, such as love.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)
Be wary of those who come bearing gifts. They may appear friendly but you're too smart to be taken in by appearances. If someone offers you something for no good reason make sure there isn't a bad one.
