Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22) Start planning for the future today. You know only too well that certain parts of your lifestyle are going to change. Nothing major will happen for some weeks yet, so think ahead and prepare yourself. Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21) There’s no need to rush into making a decision about a change of direction. Even if you believe you’re at an emotional or moral crossroads at the moment, you still have the freedom of choice. Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20) Although you know what you want and how to get it you will have to take other views into account in order to make progress. Try to adopt a more conciliatory tone with those you live and work with. Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19) It would be a mistake to put all your eggs in one basket, especially when others are passing the buck. Stick to what you know and who you trust and you cannot go wrong. Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20) You are not normally one to give up on something just because it is difficult but there are times when it is wise to back off a bit and wait until the odds are more attractive – and this is one of them. Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20) When your heart tells you one thing and your head another, which one do you listen to? Romantic issues should be dealt with intuitively and professional matters on a more practical level. Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21) You should be more open about what you want and what you expect of others. They may not agree with you but, if you communicate honestly, there will be less chance of misunderstandings. Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21) Try as you might to disguise your feelings, something you do or say will give you away, leaving others to wonder why you act so coy. Your emotions are nothing to be ashamed of – on the contrary, they’re endearing. Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23) What a friend tells you may sound convincing but, if you think about it, you will realise how little they really know. The louder someone shouts this week, the less they will have to say. Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23) So many things in your life now seem urgent. Or do they? How many times have you been in a similar situation? And how many times did it all work out in the end? Don’t get upset over things that don’t matter. Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23) Don’t change things for the sake of it. You may feel hyperactive but if you go too far in one direction you’ll have to compensate by moving even further in another. Just keep things simple this week. Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23) You should have the courage to say or do something that may upset someone you love and admire this week. You’ll be cross with yourself if someone makes a mistake because you did not speak up.
