Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
If you have any secret artistic longings this is the time to give them a go. You don’t have to perform to an audience but you do have to make an effort to see if you have what it takes.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
You’ve had enough of restrictions and restraints – you need your freedom and you need it now. Make the effort to explain this to partners and colleagues as it will help if they understand your motives.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
You will be full of energy and ideas this week. But with someone in a position of power about to take an interest in you, it would be a mistake to be too assertive. Show your best side.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
A new week dawns and with it comes new challenges, new opportunities and new ways of doing business. An authority figure will offer you something you’ve always wanted. Accept it instantly.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)
If you are asked to make some kind of sacrifice, do it willingly and ask for nothing in return. Your generosity will be noted and sooner or later you will receive 10 times what you have given.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
You can be certain that affairs of the heart can only get better. They will get better still if you make an effort not to judge partners and loved ones. Give them your support and they will give you their love.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)
It may appear as if the world is against you but you know that isn’t true. Others may seem more assertive, which makes you uneasy. It’s all an illusion. If anything, they are wary of you.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)
No one will be able to deny you. Whether you use charm or brute force you will get your way whatever the opposition. Others will sense your will to succeed and won’t put up too much of a fight.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)
The moon, your ruler, new in dynamic Scorpio, will set you on a more creative path. Don’t worry about how much it is going to cost you. If the idea is a good one – and it is – fate will provide.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)
You’ll be ready to go anywhere this week. The more you put yourself about the more opportunities will come your way. But you must use charm rather than strong-arm tactics if you want others to cooperate.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)
If you are typical of your birth sign, you’re invariably in need of money and over the next few days this need will become acute. You should find a new source of income once Mars changes signs on Thursday.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)
You’ll try to be on good terms with everyone by playing down differences and finding ways to compromise. But don’t go too far or you’ll send the wrong message. You wouldn’t want others to think you are weak.
