Aries March 21 - April 19 Try as you might, it's not always possible to avoid conflict. What you can do, though, is limit the damage to yourself. Human nature is a funny thing. Some people love negative thoughts and want others to join them. By being positive, you risk losing the friendship of those itching for a fight, but that's not a bad thing, is it? Taurus April 20 - May 20 You've had your ups and downs this year, but now you're feeling a little more cheerful for a change. Go with that feeling - it can take you somewhere special. Create beauty in your environment, as this will produce good results and help improve your mood. Pretty flowers, clean hair, a fun afternoon with friends - anything to get the ball rolling. Gemini May 21 - June 20 Someone or something is irritating you - or perhaps you've had enough of the stress in a close friendship. There's a time to act, but now is not the best moment. Take deep breaths and hold your tongue for as long as you can. Events are unfolding as they are meant to. Things will get better slowly. Don't make hasty decisions that you could regret later. Cancer June 21 - July 22 We all know that a good balance between work and rest is crucial, but you've gone off the rails a bit lately. Either you're playing around too much, or focusing huge chunks of time on studying. Whatever it is, it's not working, so it's time to make a much-needed change. Divide your day up wisely and make space for everything that's important - including yourself! Leo July 23 - August 22 Never, ever believe that you're not good enough. You absolutely are - no matter what anybody else says. Your confidence needs a bit of a boost now. Maybe someone you admire hasn't appreciated you enough, or you face obstacles in an important project. Whatever it is, don't feel that it's the end of the world. It really isn't. I promise. Virgo August 23 - September 22 Are you being totally honest with yourself? If not, a reality check is not far off. Any little white lies or half-truths start to add up - and it takes great courage to act with integrity, especially if you risk upsetting others. Consider carefully who you are and what you stand for. Then, live that truth every day. You will be a better person for it, guaranteed. Libra September 23 - October 22 We win some, we lose some - that's a fact of life. This week, though, you're anxious about making it to the top, whatever the cost. Try to hold back your urge to win every time, as it's a waste of energy battling to always be the best. A little humour will lighten your mood. Laugh at yourself occasionally and you'll be amazed at how much calmer and in control you feel. Try it! Scorpio October 23 - November 21 Imagine being a bird this week - able to take flight whenever you wish and escape troubles at the drop of a hat. Visualisation is a powerful tool. With a little practice, you'll be able to melt away your moans and groans by simply imagining a happier you. This doesn't mean you're running away from problems; it simply helps you to manage them more maturely. Sagittarius November 22 - December 21 A little goes a long way this week; it doesn't take much for you to get the whole world cheering and laughing again. You have a sunny personality that is naturally magnetic and, right now, people need to see your infectious grin. Think of yourself as a ray of sunshine, spreading joy and happiness where it's most needed. The great thing is that all this will benefit you, too! Capricorn December 22 - January 19 Amazing! Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse - they got better! Try to find the positives in your situation, even if there seems to be countless negatives blocking your view. Some careful thought, preparation and a calm attitude will help you a lot. It's always a little difficult taking that first step - but you can do it. Aquarius January 20 - February 18 The expression, 'softly, softly, catch the monkey' is strangely relevant to your situation this week. Biding your time, watching and waiting, is the best way to achieve success in even the smallest things now. Imagine yourself as a big cat, camped out in the bushes, patiently counting on the right moment to act. Pisces February 19 - March 20 It's never too late to mend a broken heart, even if some things seem to be beyond repair. Focus now on measuring any damage in your relationships, and trust that you'll say and do the right thing. Have faith in yourself. You have the power to transform any bad situation into something much better.
