Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23) Today’s new moon in your birth sign is one of the best possible cosmic omens. If you need to make a new start, now is the time. Decide what it is you want most out of life, then go out and get it. Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23) The tide is turning in your favour and by the time the sun enters your sign next Saturday you’ll be back to your best. The past few weeks haven’t been easy but you’ve learned a lot about the world around you. Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22) Your task for the week is to question what everyone takes for granted. In doing so you will shatter a few illusions and realise how easy it is to be misled by those who wish to keep the public in the dark. Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21) It’s time to show the world that your boasts are anything but idle. You know what you are capable of but unless you move from the talking stage to the doing stage your potential will not be realised. Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20) It’s time to think more deeply about your career and whether it’s right for you. Once the sun crosses the mid-heaven point of your chart next Saturday you’ll have the opportunity to change direction. Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19) Someone you trust will give you some good advice this week. However, as it entails a major change of lifestyle, you may be reluctant to follow it. Try not to dismiss the idea entirely. Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20) A certain relationship has reached a turning point and will no longer be the same. It could be better or worse, so you’ll have to adapt to a major change in the power balance between you. Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20) Partners and colleagues will be eager to give you their opinions this week and you will be eager to tell them to mind their own business. Which could, of course, lead to a little friction. Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21) If you let others make your decisions for you this week, the results could be disastrous, especially on the work front. Let colleagues and employers know that you’re on top of the job and don’t need their help. Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21) You’ll start to feel more confident about yourself once your ruler Mercury moves into sympathetic Libra today. This is the time to start making changes. Trust yourself and be dynamic. Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23) Something you hear this week may alter your view of the world. For too long, you have been happy to accept what the “system” tells you is the truth. Now it’s time to start thinking for yourself. Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23) Your powers of persuasion have always been good but they will get even better. With Mercury moving in your favour you will find it easier to open up. Try not to spend too much time talking about money.
