Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)
Keep telling yourself you are No 1, you can do no wrong and anything is possible for those who dare. Take advantage of the opportunities that come your way this week to make life more enjoyable and fulfilling.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)
What is there to be afraid of? Chances are you’re scared of something simply because you don’t know much about it. Once you see how normal this apparently mysterious situation is your fear will evaporate.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
Learn to think for yourself. Don’t just accept what an “expert” tells you, especially if, deep inside, a little voice is telling you the evidence doesn’t add up. Don’t let yourself be misled.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
Try to mix with influential people. Let them know who you are and what you can do. The world may realise what a genius you are but it’s unlikely to happen without some effort by you. Sell yourself.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
You’ll be in a philosophic frame of mind and far less concerned with everyday woes. You may even be thinking of taking up a hobby that leads you in a direction you wouldn’t normally be inclined to travel.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
If you must be obsessive about something, let it be about making a difference to the lives of those around you. But remember: doing so doesn’t mean forcing your views on others.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)
Romance and love will be high on your agenda this week. Go out of your way to be positive about your closest relationships. Think good things about those you love and good things will happen.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
It will be tricky this week to balance matters of the heart with those of the head, but not impossible. It might be best to compartmentalise your time. Plan a schedule and stay in control.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)
This is a week for action and to stretch yourself way beyond the limits you have imposed upon yourself over the years. Try to break out of the emotional straightjacket you’ve made for yourself.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)
Speak up if you disagree with the proposals of a partner or relative. They may not welcome your interference now but they’ll thank you later if it saves them from making a costly mistake.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)
Make an effort to be sociable, especially with people you take for granted or wouldn’t normally talk to. Something you hear from an unlikely source could help you to deal with a problem of your own.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)
A financial matter may be causing problems but how much is real and how much imaginary? By the end of this week you should be able to see your cash-flow situation from a more balanced perspective.
