Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)
There is no speedy solution to the problems you are facing at home or at work. Staying power and composure are the attributes you need to cultivate – anger and impatience are the ones you need to avoid.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)
For all the emotional mayhem in your life, you’re doing remarkably well. Or could it be that you’ve been hoping for a little excitement and, now that it’s here, you intend to make the most of it?

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)
Don’t try to avoid people you fear will oppose your plans and make life difficult for you. Confront them and you’ll realise that what seems so important to you means nothing them.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)
Look at the wider picture but don’t neglect the details, especially where affairs of the heart or creative issues are concerned. Something overlooked now will cause embarrassment later.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)
Opportunity knocks this week. Whether you will answer depends on how involved you are in activities of a romantic nature. The knocking is due to continue throughout the week, so there is no need to rush.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
You have nothing to fear and much to gain from a recent arrival in your life. They may seem a little odd but refuse to be influenced by mindless prejudices on the part of those with different agendas.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
You have battled long and hard to be accepted in a hostile environment. Now you are one of them you can start putting forward ideas and suggestions you wouldn’t have dared to voice previously.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
Being resigned to a certain situation doesn’t mean there is nothing you can do to make it more palatable. Be creative. Something will help you turn the situation into an inspiring or even profitable one.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
The bigger the decision the longer you should take over it. In your haste to be free of a negative situation, you might overlook something important. Check your facts before you make your move.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)
There’s nothing weird or magical about intuition – it’s your subconscious telling you things your conscious mind finds hard to accept. You’re about to get a flash of inspiration and you must take it seriously.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
There is nothing wrong with the way you have been handling career or financial problems. On the contrary, you will see or hear something that will confirm you were right to be cautious and cover your tracks.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)
You may have to be ruthless this week – more in what you say than what you do – if you want to get things moving. Rely too much on others’ willingness to do their share without being told and you’ll fall behind.
