Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
There’s no point in admitting something if there’s little chance of an indiscretion being discovered. Minor mistakes are best disguised with little white lies rather than blown up into major confrontations.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
It’s natural to be concerned when confronted by things you know little about, but don’t let that worry get out of hand. You may be clueless about your current predicament but wait a day or two and it will pass.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
Because you’re quieter and less boisterous than usual others may think there is something wrong. Not necessarily: you just need to be on your own for a bit. There’s something you need to think deeply about.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)
You have certain standards of behaviour and ways of doing things and you are not about to change either just because someone is pompous enough to think they know better than you.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
You may feel pessimistic about your chances today but you know this feeling will eventually pass so don’t take too much notice of it. If possible, focus on the lighter side of life.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)
Try not to think of yourself as a victim, even if there is evidence to suggest that you’ve in some way been taken advantage of. Use your imagination and you can easily find your way out of this predicament.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)
Don’t take a cynical view of others’ motives. They may seem to be acting out of self-interest but can you be sure? Think how many times before you’ve jumped to conclusions and found you were wrong.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)
If you can’t change the particulars of a situation, try changing your viewpoint instead. Often when you look at a problem from a different angle the solution becomes obvious.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)
Don’t try to pass the buck as it will be passed right back to you. If you’ve agreed to handle certain duties you are obliged to see them through to a successful conclusion, whether or not your heart is in it.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)
If you must look back and work out why certain things went wrong, do it now and then forget about them. You can’t help but regret some of the things you’ve done but don’t let them ruin your life.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)
No matter how reasonable your opinions or beliefs, you will not get the support you’re looking for. Perhaps you’re trying too hard. Act as if you don’t care if anyone agrees with you – then everyone will.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
Neither a borrower nor a lender be this week, no matter how tempting the shop windows and how disarmingly you’re approached by someone hoping for a loan. You simply cannot afford it.
