Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
If you need to make some kind of promise, either to yourself or others, then this is the time to do it. What is decided over the next few days will reap remarkable dividends in the weeks ahead.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
For someone usually so energetic and enthusiastic you seem curiously downbeat at the moment. All you really need is some time to yourself, away from the crowds and the cares of the everyday world.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
We tend to fear things we don’t understand. Make the effort to understand someone who behaves in ways alien to your nature. You may be surprised to find you have more in common than you thought.

Aquarius (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
If you must do a deal this week make sure you read the small print. Someone will try to take advantage of your trusting nature, even though the relationship has been straightforward in the past.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)
There should be no more doubts about what you believe and what you should be doing with your life. What you think and what you feel is precisely what you need. Follow your instincts and you won’t go wrong.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Even if your To Do list is crammed full, try to find a few minutes to yourself to contemplate life’s deeper mysteries. What you discover about yourself will lead you to interesting practical solutions.

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 21)
It doesn’t matter how critical or cynical those around you happen to be this week. If you are convinced a certain course of action is necessary, then you must follow it through to the end.

Gemini (May 22 - Jun 21)
Your head and heart will work in harmony this week. Not everyone will agree with what you intend to do but that won’t worry you in the slightest. “If it feels good, do it” should be your motto.

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 23)
You need a bit of adventure in your life to take your mind off all the serious things you are having to deal with. Start planning that adventure today. You will soon be living it for real.

Leo (Jul 24 - Aug 23)
You may be somewhat irritable this week. There’s not much you can do about it except try not to go too far over the top – even if you think the object of your irritation deserves it.

Virgo (Aug 24 - Sep 23)
Your powers of communication are at a peak. Don’t sit around waiting for things to happen – go out and make them happen. Others will be impressed by your ideas if you make the effort to explain them.

Libra (Sep 24 - Oct 23)
You may not want to compromise but if it is the only way to get what you desire then you have no alternative. And don’t think you can promise something today and wriggle out of it tomorrow.
