Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
No matter how idealistic your thoughts may be, don’t think you cannot turn them into reality. The trick is not to keep things secret – share your insights with those in a position to make dreams come true.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
If you don’t start all those great plans you have for the future now you never will. With Mars at the mid-heaven point of your chart from today, you could not wish for a more positive omen of success.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)
You should have no doubts about what you want, where to get it and what you are going to do with it once it is yours. Mars in Scorpio is one of the most positive influences a Piscean like you could hope for.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
You won’t convince a partner or associate of the validity of your ideas this week. They just won’t believe you. Who is right is immaterial. Respect their instincts and don’t take rejection personally.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)
Whatever you do this week, someone is sure to complain about it. You’ll encounter some rather arrogant and ungrateful people over the next few weeks. Give as good as you get and they’ll soon back off.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)
You have a long list of things to be done and the longer you put them off the longer the list will become. Fortunately, you won’t lack for enthusiasm or energy. Make a start now and you will soon be finished.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)
You may have your doubts about some kind of scheme or project but they will be swept away in spectacular fashion over the next 48 hours. Speak up if you think you have something to offer.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)
You need to loosen up a little and let the winds of fate blow you where they will. Loved ones may frown at your behaviour but only because they are jealous of your carefree attitude.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)
You can accept that certain things are going wrong in your life but what you cannot accept is they all seem to be going wrong at once. Could it be that you are overreacting? Stay cool, calm and in control.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)
Your enthusiasm for something secret is likely to wane but that won’t be the end of it. Your mind needs time to digest the knowledge you’ve been feeding it. Sooner or later you’ll return to finish what you started.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
Mars in your birth sign for the next nine weeks or so will give you the perseverance, courage and energy to survive any crisis. With Mercury retrograde from Friday your relationships will need careful handling.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
If you are happy with your social or professional reputation, fine. If not, this is the moment to think about how you’d like to change the way you are perceived by the world at large.
